1…………> “Wine & Rosses”: Trump’s Tax Cuts

6 Months After President Trump’s Tax Cuts, the Real Celebration Is for America’s Workers 

President Donald J. Trump, speaking in Blue Ash, Ohio 

Your paychecks are going way up. Your taxes are going way down. And right now, for the first time in a long time—and you’ve seen it—factories are coming back. 

Six months ago today, President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law—the first major overhaul of the U.S. tax code since Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

The law made three important changes to help workers and small businesses. First, it cut how much money the government takes out of Americans’ paychecks. It nearly doubled the standard deduction, doubled the child tax credit, protected tax savings for college and retirement, and lower rates across the board. 

Second, it put American employers on a level playing field with foreign competitors. The U.S. business tax rate went from being the highest in the developed world to falling below the average for advanced economies. 

Third, the law eliminated dozens of special interest tax breaks and loopholes, raising $4 trillion in revenue to help offset tax cuts by closing the door on dozens of corporate accounting tricks. 

This boost in paychecks in part explains the renewed sense of optimism in America’s heartland, part of our country that had taken the brunt of 21st-century economic pains. The President heard these stories firsthand when he visited White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, in April: 

Not a lot of people know it, but for the average West Virginian, two kids, it’s $1,966 more in their pocket . . . The average mortgage in West Virginia is $600. You divide 600 into 1,900, and you find out that, thanks to President Trump, President Trump paid the mortgage payment for three months of the average West Virginian. 

In addition to relief for working families, tax reform is essential to restoring America’s economic dominance. The results can be seen in our Nation’s business environment, as American companies start investing once again: 

When profits go up, capital investment goes up, and wages follow. That’s the reason we estimated, based on what has happened around the world, that households will get an average $4,000 wage increase from corporate tax reform. 

2…………> Support Police: Trump

It’s time to support our police, to protect our families, and to save American lives.

SUPPORTING ANGEL FAMILIES: President Donald J. Trump is hearing firsthand from the American families who have lost loved ones to illegal alien crime. 

President Donald J. Trump is meeting with “Angel families,” who have lost loved ones to illegal alien crime. 

The Trump Administration created the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office in order to support the victims and families affected by illegal alien crime. 

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement launched the VOICE Office in April 2017, following an Executive Order by the President calling for its creation. 

The VOICE Office operates a hotline to connect victims with social services and, when possible, assist them in obtaining immigration information regarding the offender. 

The VOICE Office has released a new report that includes case studies explaining how they were able to assist victims who contacted them. 

A 2011 Government Accountability Office report found nearly 3 million offences tied to criminal aliens, including: 

o More than 25,000 homicide offences. 

o More than 42,000 robbery offences. 

o Nearly 70,000 sex crime offences. 

o Nearly 15,000 kidnapping offences. 

· In Texas alone, more than 250,000 criminal aliens have been arrested and charged with over 600,000 criminal offences within the last seven years. 

· In the fiscal year 2017, more than 8,000 criminal illegal aliens in police custody were released back into our communities as a result of sanctuary policies.

3…………> Efficient, Responsive Government: Trump 

President Donald J. Trump Is Reforming the Federal Government, Making it More Efficient, Effective, and Accountable.

Billions and billions of dollars are being wasted on activities that are not delivering results for hardworking American taxpayers. 

REORGANIZING GOVERNMENT: President Donald J. Trump’s reform and reorganization plan will make the Federal Government more responsive and accountable to the American people.

· Last year, President Trump signed an Executive Order directing the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to work on a comprehensive plan to reorganize the Executive Branch. 

· After a year of planning how to make the Federal Government more efficient, effective, and accountable – which included input from stakeholders, agencies, and the public – key reform proposals were developed, such as: 

o Consolidating food safety functions into a single agency, addressing the current fragmented Federal oversight of food safety. 

o Merging the Departments of Education and Labor into a single Cabinet agency to better meet the needs of American workers and students. 

o Consolidating economic assistance resources to a new Bureau of Economic Growth within the Department of Commerce to increase economic growth nationwide. 

· This plan will serve as a cornerstone for a productive, bipartisan dialogue around making the Federal Government work for the 21st century. 

· Instead of a “one size fits all” approach to reform, the Trump Administration’s plan to reorganize the Government proposes solutions tailored to each agency’s mission. 

4…………> Brooming Out Obama’s Trash: Sessions 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Rescinds 24 Guidance Documents 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions today announced that consistent with his November 2017 memorandum prohibiting the Department from making rules without following the procedures required by Congress, he is rescinding 24 guidance documents that were unnecessary, outdated, inconsistent with existing law, or otherwise improper. 

“The American people deserve to have their voices heard and a government that is accountable to them. When issuing regulations, federal agencies must abide by constitutional principles and follow the rules set forth by Congress and the President. In previous administrations, however, agencies often tried to impose new rules on the American people without any public notice or comment period, simply by sending a letter or posting a guidance document on a website. That’s wrong, and it’s not good government. 

“In the Trump administration, we are restoring the rule of law. That’s why in November I banned this practice at the Department and we began rescinding guidance documents that were issued improperly or that were simply inconsistent with current law. 

“Today we are rescinding 24 more and continuing to put an end to unnecessary or improper rulemaking.” 

In February 2017, President Donald Trump issued Executive Order 13777, which calls for agencies to establish Regulatory Reform Task Forces, chaired by a Regulatory Reform Officer, to identify existing regulations for potential repeal, replacement, or modification. The Department of Justice Task Force is chaired by Acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio. 

5…………> NSA Snooping: Trump 

President Donald Trump on Tuesday slammed as a “disgrace” the National Security Agency (NSA) violation of Americans’ privacy through an unauthorized collection of phone data. 

“Wow! The NSA has deleted 685 million phone calls and text messages. Privacy violations? They blame technical irregularities,” Trump said in a tweet. “Such a disgrace. The Witch Hunt continues!” 

The NSA announced last month that it will delete improperly collected phone calls and text message data that have been collected since 2015. (Anadolu Agency)
