Donald Trump to attend Army/Navy game today


(Bizpac Review) – In what may be a first in its history, the annual Army-Navy game will be hosting a President-elect. Donald Trump will be attending the 117th Army-Navy Game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday, something President Obama apparently could only find the time to do once during his eight years in office.

Short-term Spending, Refugees and H-2B Visas

Congressional Leaders resist pushes to increase refugee funding and H-2B foreign worker visas

The House overwhelmingly approved, with bipartisan support, a short-term spending bill yesterday without any significant changes to the refugee program and without expanding the H-2B guest-worker program. We've been asking you for phone calls and faxes since late last week, and your activism paid off! The Senate is expected to pass the bill over the next few days, but there is some resistance from a handful of Democratic Senators.

The short-term spending bill would fund the government through late-April, so there will likely be another battle then. But negotiations will be with a different administration that's more focused on eliminating fraud within the refugee program and protecting the jobs and wages of American workers.

We faced two threats with this week's fight. First, back in September, Pres. Obama demanded an increase in funding for the refugee program to accommodate an additional 25,000 refugees over last year's already inflated numbers. The White House more recently requested a doubling of refugee funding through the short-term spending bill. The money not only would pay for the additional refugees, but would house and resettle across the U.S. the thousands of border surgers who have illegally entered the U.S. in recent months.

Congress added a small increase in refugee funding, but none of the additional funds can be used to resettle new refugees in the United States nor can they be used by the Obama Administration to house and resettle the border surgers. The other threat came from Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) who insisted that Congress extend a provision from last year's omnibus spending bill that exempts certain returning foreign workers from the H-2B visa caps. The exemption could potentially quadruple the H-2B guest worker program from its cap of 66,000 per year.

Congressional Leaders left the proposed extension out of the spending bill as introduced, but Harris urged the House Rules Committee to allow an amendment to the bill. Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) and the rest of the committee rejected Harris' request.

Again, thank you to all the activists that made phone calls and sent faxes over the last 10 days to help protect low-skilled American workers and to help rein in a refugee program that's riddled with fraud and lacks oversight.

The Flaming Left with no substantive argument


Great job by Tucker Carlson getting Schiff (from California so what can you expect?) to expose his true colors. This is exactly how journalists should treat all political figures whenever they mislead and deceive, which most of them do 24/7.

Lupita Devalle - Stress took a toll on Lake Worth resident

Oh, no.  Lupita is in a coma.

You remember Lupita and her horrible ordeal that she went through for an entire year at Palm Beach Mobile Home Park that is located right off of Boutwell Road--raw sewage under her home and no one to turn to.

On top of all of that, one of the residents there told me that the city of Lake Worth wants them to cart all of their yard waste, tree cuttings etc. to a roll off container in the compound as well as their recyclables. This is an over 55 park and many of these people can barely walk.

Palm Beach Mobile Home Park pays the highest amount of taxes in the city.

Florida is the place for Business

Gov. Rick Scott is doing a great job attracting businesses to Florida. On top of that, yesterday he announced that Florida businesses will continue to pay the lowest possible rate for reemployment taxes next year because of Florida’s growing economy and strong private-sector job growth rate.

The minimum tax rate will remain at $7 per employee in 2017. The $7 per employee minimum tax rate for 2017 is down from a high of $120.80 per employee in 2012. In just five years, Florida businesses have had their reemployment tax reduced by more than 94 percent, resulting in a savings of more than $3.5 billion.

Liberal George Stephanopoulos gets in Mike Pence's face

There has been a lot of liberal squawking about Donald Trump taking a congratulatory call from the president of Taiwan.  It seems that no president or president elect has spoken to Taiwan in 40 years. Donald Trump is reaching out to all countries and "engaging the world," says Pence.


Our Trade Deficit and another American company wants to move its operations to Mexico

Rexnord Corporation, a company that manufactures
plans on moving its Indianapolis plant to Mexico. 300 people will be out of work. Rexnord is headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, comprised of two strategic platforms, Process & Motion Control and Water Management, with approximately 7,700 employees worldwide, according to its website.

Then we have the elite (like John McCain) of the Republican party who are against Trump and his trade policies. First they opposed him because they thought he could not win. Now they are afraid of a trade war even though there is a huge imbalance of trade. The U.S. trade deficit in goods alone was $758.9 billion, 2.4% higher than last year. If Republicans continue to oppose Donald Trump, America loses right along with the American worker.

The top five trading partners also have the largest deficits. They are Canada - $575.5 billion traded with a $2.2 billion deficit. China - $598.1 billion traded with a $29.7 billion deficit. Mexico - $531.1 billion with a $4.6 billion deficit. Japan - $193.6 billion traded with a $6.6 billion deficit. Germany - $174.1 billion traded with a $6.7 billion deficit.
