Philly Police Shooter Had a Long History of Criminal Activity

Westlake Legal Group police-850054_1280-620x438 Philly Police Shooter Had a Long History of Criminal Activity shooting police philadelphia injuries Front Page Stories Featured Story criminal crime Allow Media Exception

New information has rolled in about the recent suspect who shot police officers in Philidelphia.

According to The Inquirer, the man who shot and injured six police officers has a long history of gun convictions and a past of trying to run away from justice. Maurice Hill, 36, is a Philadelphia native who is no stranger to crime:

Hill’s history in the adult criminal justice system began in 2001 when he was 18 and was arrested with a gun that had an altered serial number.

Public records show that he has been arrested about a dozen times since turning 18, and convicted six times on charges that involved illegal possession of guns, drug dealing, and aggravated assault. He has been in and out of prison; the longest sentence handed him came in 2010, when a federal judge gave him a 55-month term.

The Inquirer has also reported that Hill has called his lawyer:

The police sources declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak. Reached by phone about 9:30 p.m. Thursday evening, Shaka Johnson, the lawyer who most recently represented Hill, confirmed that Hill had a connection to the standoff.

“My client is requesting me to come to the scene,” he said.

Police say the incident happened as the Narcotics Strike Force were trying to serve Hill a search warrant on Wednesday around 4 p.m., resulting in the standoff with police. The police attempted to coax him out with bullhorns for several hours afterward.

During that time, Hill called Johnson “in a panic,” and Johnson continuously tried to tell him to surrender himself.

“I told him, ‘you gotta surrender, man,’” said Johnson according to the Inquirer.

Hill eventually gave himself up just after midnight.

The officers who were shot suffered no life-threatening injuries and were released shortly after being treated by the hospital.

BREAKING: Israel Bans Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib From Entering the Country Over BDS Support

It looks as though Israeli officials have moved forward with a plan to refuse entry for United States congresswomen Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

The move comes after Omar and Tlaib threw their support behind the BDS movement – Boycott, Divest and Sanctions. The movement is aimed at supporting Palestinian independence. Many see it as blatant anti-semitism.

Apparently the Israeli’s see it as anti-semitism as well. The two congresswomen are scheduled to visit Israel as part of a delegation this coming weekend. Throughout the week there have been various reports that Israel was considering a ban on Omar and Tlaib given their BDS support.

An Israeli government official decided Thursday that U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., should be barred from entering the country for a planned visit this weekend, according to Israeli media.

The two freshman congresswomen support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), a pro-Palestinian advocacy effort, but Israeli law says those supporting boycotts of the country may be denied entry. The decision to enforce the law against Tlaib and Omar was reportedly made by Israeli Interior Minister Arye Deri, but a formal decision and announcement have yet to be made as other parties reportedly weigh in.

On Thursday, Israeli news anchor and analyst Dana Weiss reported that Israeli officials had decided in favor of the ban for Tlaib and Omar.

The move comes after rumors that President Trump had expressed some displeasure that Israel would allow the freshman congresswomen to visit. Israel recently put Trump’s name on a town within their borders. In honor of Trump’s historic commitment to Israel, a small town within the Golan Heights region was named Trump Heights. The move came after Trump defied international criticism to move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Congresswoman Tlaib claims to have family in the West Bank region and could possibly file a humanitarian request for visitation there.

Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x269 Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs youtube violent Video signs Politics Liberals insane Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story deranged democrats Daily Caller Crazy Conservatives

One of the odder occurrences after Donald Trump’s election has been the propensity for certain liberals to simply lose it. Who can forget the viral video of the woman screaming at the sky as Donald Trump was sworn in?

Just in case you haven’t been exposed to the levels of insanity currently propagating on college campuses and within left wing activism, the Daily Caller has put together a montage of just how crazy even the mere site of conservative thought is driving people on the left.

Some of these even surprised me.

There’s a good case that most of these people should be committed. The vulgarity, the violent outbursts, and the inability to control one’s emotions. At one point, you see a young women cursing and then deciding that poll dancing on a street sign made sense in her protest of ICE. At another, you see a woman shrieking in terror at the mere site of a conservative holding a sign. People run over to make sure she’s not being harmed. Nope, she’s just that unhinged.

Politics is doing something to our society and it’s not good for a lot of people. If your reaction to those on the opposite side of the aisle is to legitimately lose your mind, screaming and flailing, you shouldn’t be following politics. You should be asking yourself why your life is so devoid of purpose that such a reaction would happen from within you.

The Most Powerful Woman In History

Westlake Legal Group titians-assumption-e1565832484582-620x379 The Most Powerful Woman In History religion mother of god mary Jesus Christ Front Page Stories Featured Story feast of the assumption Christianity Allow Media Exception

Usually, when you read secular or even progressive Christian criticisms of the Christian faith, and Catholicism in particular, one of the arguments that inevitably comes up is the sexism inherent in placing so much emphasis on a single woman only as a vessel through which the Savior of Man could come into the world.

In the Catholic Church, today is the Feast of the Assumption, the celebration of the day that Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, was assumed – body and spirit – into Heaven at the end of her life, marking the end of a pure, sinless life. The belief in the Assumption is actually just the capstone of the story of the most powerful woman in the world.

The critics who would complain of Mary’s treatment in the Bible do so largely by flat out ignoring how influential Mary was in the life and ministry of her son. She was a young woman approached by the angel Gabriel and told she was to bear the Son of God and name him Jesus – despite the fact that she was a virgin. However, if you read the story of the interaction between Mary and Gabriel, it’s quite clear that it was not the command it is usually made out to be.

34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.

The bolded part here is where the power in the conversation actually shifts. Mary is not just accepting this. She is giving her permission. This moment is referred to as Mary’s fiat, a Latin term meaning “an official authorization.” Thus, we see that Gabriel isn’t telling her she will do this. He is saying that it is the Lord’s intention, should she accept. Her response tells both Gabriel and God that, yes, I will bear this child.

Rarely in history do you see any choices given to women when they are ordained by a higher power to take up some holy cause. The choice isn’t there, as though destiny or whatever higher power is in charge simply forced the holy charge onto them. In this case, Mary’s allowance of this charge is one of the most progressive moments in both history and religion. However, simply saying “Your will be done” is not the end of her legacy in Christianity. It is simply the first in a lifetime of responsibility that she will take in guiding Jesus.

In the Gospel of John, we find Mary again at the center of one of the most important moments in Christianity. The wedding at Cana is considered to be the first miracle Jesus performed, and it was at the direction of Mary, not God, that he revealed himself.

3When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.” 5His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

In this moment, we see that Jesus doesn’t believe his time has come, but he performs the miracle anyway at the behest of his mother, Mary. She was not simply the means for Jesus entering the world, but instead was the guiding force in his journey to becoming the figure he is.

Mary’s existence wasn’t merely inserted into the Bible to play the part of a birth mother, but rather as the figure that Jesus would respect and listen to even if he felt it was not part of his mission. This deference to his mother grants her a power that no one else had. Jesus did not perform miracles because anyone else told him to. He did it as part of his ministry. But, at the wedding at Cana, Jesus performed a miracle because Mary told him to. He revealed himself to his disciples in that moment, but not because it was part of some grander lesson. It was because of his own love and respect for his mother.

That is not a power that is given out to women so freely during that time, and even if you were to argue that it was an account written much later, the fact is that women did not regularly achieve such a status in religious or historical text. Mary is an exception that stands above other figures in history because of it.

Her influence in the world is not the influence of simply the Mother of God. She is a woman who was given the choice to bear, raise, and follow her son, and she chose this knowing that she would also likely see him killed by the very people he was sent to save. That she is depicted as she is, choosing that life, seeing what she saw, makes her Assumption that much more powerful. She is assumed, body and soul, into Heaven because she accepted the greatest charge one could take on, and in doing so she helped in a big way to shape the world.

This is why Mary is celebrated. If Jesus can be considered the most influential man in history, then it has to be recognized that without Mary, Jesus would not have walked the earth. For this, she did not die, but was granted a perfect reward for her perfect life on Earth.

Epstein’s Autopsy Finds Multiple Broken Bones In Neck; Raises Questions

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-mugshot-620x317 Epstein’s Autopsy Finds Multiple Broken Bones In Neck; Raises Questions NYC Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson Jeffrey Epstein hyoid fracture Front Page Stories Epstein autopsy findings crime Allow Media Exception

FILE – This July 27, 2006 arrest file photo made available by the Palm Beach, Fla., Sheriff’s Office shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday, July 6, 2019, on charges involving sex-trafficking allegations that date to the 2000s. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

 

According to The Washington Post, Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy found that several bones in his neck had been broken. They reported:

Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.

People familiar with the autopsy, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive stage of the investigation, said Sampson’s office is seeking additional information on Epstein’s condition in the hours before his death. That could include video evidence of the jail hallways, which may establish whether anyone entered Epstein’s cell during the night he died; results of a toxicology screening to determine if there was any unusual substance in his body; and interviews with guards and inmates who were near his cell.

The cause of death remains “pending.”

Although Epstein’s death has been characterized as an “apparent suicide,” many believe it may have been a murder instead. A preliminary result such as this is sure to give credence to that theory.

There are certainly many people who had an interest in seeing Epstein silenced.

There isn’t a ton of information available about hyoid fractures. According to Wikipedia, “Neck trauma, commonly by strangulation, athletic activities, and car accidents, is the cause of a hyoid bone fracture. Other causes include violent vomiting, gunshot wounds, and hanging.” This injury accounts for only 0.002% of all fractures.

The fact that Epstein’s hyoid bone was broken is not proof that he’d been strangled. But it sure as hell has to be investigated and ruled out.

He very well could have sustained a fractured hyoid bone from hanging. This injury is found in 27% of hanging victims. However, the figure doubles for victims of strangulation.

The Washington Post found:

A handful of studies conducted over the past decade have produced conflicting results about the likelihood of a hyoid break in a suicide. In a study of 20 suicidal hangings in Thailand, published in 2010, one fourth of the men who hanged themselves had broken hyoids. In a larger study of suicidal hangings of young-adults and middle-aged people in India, conducted from 2010 to 2013, hyoid damage was found in just 16 of 264 cases, or six percent. The study addressed the discrepancies in academic reviews, saying wide variations in findings of hyoid breaks are “possibly due to factors like age of the victim, weight of the victim, type of suspension and height of suspension.”

To illustrate the significance of a hyoid fracture in a death inquiry, the Post cites the case of Ronnie L. White, a teenager who was accused of killing a police officer in 2008.

[White] died of an apparent suicide in a suburban Washington jail cell. But two days later, the cause of death was changed to homicide when a Maryland state medical examiner discovered the teen had a broken hyoid.

The incident fanned racial tension and fueled conspiracy theories about the suspect’s death in Prince George’s County, Md.

Medical examiners concluded White was probably strangled with a sheet, towel or “crux of the elbow.” The officer who moved his body pleaded guilty to obstruction. But no one was ever charged in White’s death. A federal judge said in 2013 that it remained a mystery whether the inmate was slain or took his own life.

If Epstein’s hyoid bone had not been broken, those who believe he may have been murdered would be seen as conspiracy theorists. Because it had been broken, foul play remains a possibility which must be investigated.

One thing is for sure. In the next few days, we will all become experts on the anatomy of the neck.

Stacey Abrams: The Grift That Keeps On Grifting

Anderson Theatre in Marietta, Ga., Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018.

Stacey Abrams is trying very hard to stay relevant, despite the fact that she lost a gubernatorial race (but hasn’t admitted it). She is still making appearances before whatever media will talk to her and let her tell her sob story. The best part is that the media will keep having her own out of a tremendous sense of guilt they feel for ignoring her and focusing on Beto O’Rourke.

But, Abrams is a particularly fascinating grifter and is especially good at making sure she stays relevant and continues to raise money. Objectively, it is something the Democrats should worry about. It’s something they should tell her to stop doing. But, as a partisan, I hope she keeps on doing what she’s doing.

Here’s Abrams’ plan: Keep relevant, keep raising money, and run for governor of Georgia in 2022. She was close last time, and I am pretty sure she thinks she can make it happen next time. Of course, Georgia governor Brian Kemp is thus far a man praised for a good many things, like teacher pay raises, including diversity in his appointments, and working in non-confrontational ways with the rest of state government. If he keeps going like this, he’ll end up being one of the most popular governors Georgia’s ever had.

So, Abrams has to continue with this tirade about stolen elections, minority voter suppression, and the like. The problem for Democrats is that she is doing this at the most pivotal time in the national party’s existence: They are trying to raise money to fight Trump. She exists right now solely to raise money, but that money should be going to them.

None of the Democrats will dare to raise any objections to Abrams’ campaign of “Me, Myself, and I,” because they don’t want to be the ones to tell a black woman to stop being a victim and start helping the team. They will let this continue because that’s the box they as a party have trapped themselves in, and they can’t make this a team effort until the other candidates do.

And so Abrams will keep appearing in the media to make nonsensical claims about voter suppression and lost ballot access, use cheap buzzwords meant to rile up the most rabid of the Democrats’ base – a base that should be excited for one of the three hundred or so Democrats running for president – all to raise her profile and her campaign’s bank account.

That will be money not going to Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, or any of the others. That is money that will sit for three years in a campaign’s or non-profit’s account and won’t be touched until she decides to run for governor.

I, for one, hope she keeps at it.

Trump Tweets Invite To Meet Chinese Leader And Help Solve Hong Kong Crisis

Westlake Legal Group TrumpHongKong-300x153 Trump Tweets Invite To Meet Chinese Leader And Help Solve Hong Kong Crisis twitter Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story China Allow Media Exception 2019

(AP Photo/Vincent Yu)

When Jack and the kids invented twitter I imagine they could have never imagined a President of the United States using the platform to lecture or invite leaders from around the world to meet. Yet, here we are in the “Age of Trump” and that is EXACTLY what is happening.

President Trump on Wednesday tweeted that the crisis in Hong Kong and the trade deal being negotiated with China are linked together and he would like to meet with China’s President Xi Jinping to discuss both.

According to the Wall Street Journal

President Trump suggested a “personal meeting” with China’s President Xi Jinping to discuss the escalating crisis in Hong Kong and warned China it must respond “humanely” to the protests if it wants to strike a trade deal.

Mr. Trump’s statement via Twitter marked a shift in tone in his public statements regarding the situation in Hong Kong and for the first time linked the administration’s fragile trade talks with Beijing to the protests. The Wednesday evening tweets came amid growing concern within the administration that China would respond with military force to the antigovernment protests that have shut down Hong Kong’s major international airport for the past two days.

Fears over a potentially violent crackdown have prompted concern among lawmakers from both parties, some of whom have been unequivocal in their support for the protesters.

Here are the Presidents tweets…

Good things were stated on the call with China the other day. They are eating the Tariffs with the devaluation of their currency and “pouring” money into their system. The American consumer is fine with or without the September date, but much good will come from the short…..

..deferral to December. It actually helps China more than us, but will be reciprocated. Millions of jobs are being lost in China to other non-Tariffed countries. Thousands of companies are leaving. Of course China wants to make a deal. Let them work humanely with Hong Kong first!

And the kicker…

I know President Xi of China very well. He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people. He is also a good man in a “tough business.” I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?

This is a huge risk for the President but it is one that is keeping in the tradition of The United States with supporting freedom movements all over the world.

The markets have taken a dive the past week since it was announced that trade talks had broken down between the U.S. and China. Tariffs are a drain on economies and the strongest thing the President has to offer in his reelection bid next year is a historic economy. His insistence of China playing by the rules that most other countries play by and doing it via tariffs on Chinese goods comes with great risk politically.

Now that he is adding that he could help with the situation in Hong Kong is an even bigger gamble. The Chinese have been issuing warnings to the United States to back off and have even accused the U.S. of orchestrating these protests. No country like others meddling in internal affairs but the Chinese are more paranoid than most.

Trump just took the risk that linking a trade deal with the freedom movement taking place in Hong Kong is more important than his political fortune at home. The Chinese may very well turn this down flat and walk away from any deal thus gambling that they won’t need to deal with Trump after Nov. 2020.

This is truly brazen stuff.

When watching protesters half the world away wave the American Flag and hold up signs asking for the American President to help their cause, you have to just marvel at the times we live in.

Twitter diplomacy just got REAL.

I hope the President not only sticks by his guns here but also is able to strike a deal and help push the Chinese to some kind of agreement so that the protestors are able to continue living in Hong Kong as they have since they broke off from Britain some two decades ago.

Twitter diplomacy is here to stay as long as Donald Trump is the 45th President and I hope the kids at twitter are enjoying every moment of it like the rest of us are.

When Patriots Rally: Conservative Blogger Kit Lange Perez Is Fighting For Her Life…and We Can Help

Westlake Legal Group kit-lange When Patriots Rally: Conservative Blogger Kit Lange Perez Is Fighting For Her Life…and We Can Help Uncategorized Kit Lange Perez fundraiser Front Page Stories charity cancer sucks

Kit (Lange) Perez  was a Tea Party activist and amateur blogger back when we were all just starting out in this strange landscape called “New Media”. Kit is also a writer, an EMT, volunteer firefighter and a farmer. She has staunchly defended American values her entire adult life and while most people may not know her name, she was part of the first wave of conservative bloggers that we now just take for granted have always existed.

Kit is in trouble. She’s suffered some personal tragedy recently and now she’s fighting for her life.

Here is info from Kit’s fundraising page on Facebook, kindly set up by her friends (and I have it on good word they had to basically force her to let them do it).

Kit and Eric Perez are the first to step up when people need help. They have organized dinners, supplies and donations for firefighters and volunteers fighting wildfires, helped organize security for people whose homes were left vacant when they had to evacuate due to fire, and so much more than I have space to explain here. They will give you the shirts off their back without blinking an eyelash.

Now, they need our help. Kit was recently diagnosed with an aggressive skin cancer and has had one surgery to date. It remains to be seen what further treatment will be necessary. In the meantime, the world keeps spinning, the bank wants its mortgage payment, and life keeps moving, even for an independent contractor with no health insurance. Eric is handling all of the farm chores alone while working full time, but with medical bills mounting, it is time for us to step up to help.

If you can donate your “beer and cigarette money” for a week, that’s awesome and most appreciated. If you can’t, please share, and definitely keep Kit and Eric on your heart and in your prayers to whatever higher power you talk to.

If you have questions, or need clarification on anything at all, please feel free to reach out to me or to Anna Martens. Anna is helping out as much as she can, getting Kit to doctor’s appointments so Eric doesn’t have to take time from work and helping with farm chores all while running her own household.

Thanks for reading, donating, and sharing. Karma is a real thing y’all.

A friend reached out to me on her behalf because he knew she’d never ask for help. He has never once asked me for anything, or ever once tried to trade on whatever success I’ve had. So I knew when he called me that this was serious. If you know Kit, perhaps you love her as much as he does. Here is what he has to say about her.

Kit is a fighter. She’s a redhead. That should tell you all you need to know…
If you don’t of Kit you should and if you do you know once you’ve met Kit you’ll never forget her. Her formidable intelligence and expertise will challenge you, and her artist’s soul will move you.
She is one of the strongest, most self-sufficient people I know and would never ever ask for help. Hell, she moved to a mountain in Montana to be more self sufficient and practice what she preached.
Her and her husband are volunteer firefighters in their community, and Kit is an EMT and they gladly give to anyone in need anytime they are asked.
As I said, Kit hates asking, so I’m asking.
More details are in the fundraising page.
I see fundraisers for silly things go viral and raise insane amounts of money and it’s my hope this goes viral and is able to help. Even if you can’t donate, at least please share. You never know who will see it. Thank you.

If you can support Kit and her husband, please head over to the page and make a contribution. Every little bit helps…we all know what it’s like to be in trouble and scraping by. If you can’t contribute, please share. They are hoping to raise $10K…I’d like to double that.

We are not people who wait for the government to swoop in a day late and dollar short. We are not people who assume someone else will do the hard work. We are people who roll up our sleeves to help our own, help strangers, help each other. We are Americans. Let’s show Kit just how we roll around these parts.

The Next Massacre? Ohio Teen Arrested for Terroristic Threats Had 13,000 Rounds of Ammo & Over 25 Guns

Ohio Teen Arrested for Terroristic Threats Had 13,000 Rounds of Ammo & Over 25 Guns Violence Uncategorized Terrorism Ohio menacing threats mass shootings mahoning justin olsen inducing panic Guns Front Page Stories Culture armyofchrist Allow Media Exception

 

 

This world has some problems.

In Ohio, a teenager was arrested Wednesday for making several threats against law enforcement.

18-year-old Justin Olsen — who used the handle ArmyOfChrist in the chat room iFunny — posted his support for mass shootings and Planned Parenthood terrorism. That got the attention of the FBI, as such things are inclined to do.

Also not helping: his June entry which offered, “in conclusion, shoot every federal agent on sight.”

That comment was in reference to the Waco fiasco of 1993. As for the 1995 Oklahoma bombing, Justin had this to say:

“[S]hows that armed resistance is a viable method of political change.”

According to the Tribune Journal, the youngster wrote that he “‘could not wait to start stockpiling weapons.’”

Upon his arrest, law enforcement discovered…get ready for this…13,000 rounds of ammo.

Additional goodies: 15 rifles, approximately 10 semiautomatic handguns, a machete, and camo gear.

As indicated by the FBI, Justin ‘fessed up to ominous online behavior.

He’s now resting his head at the Mahoning County Jail, charged with inducing panic and aggravated menacing threats against an officer.

Good grief.

Immigration Enforcement on the Job Site Works
It looks like the Democrat canard, “Americans just won’t do those jobs,” has been put to rest—and it didn’t take long at all. As I predicted, rounding up illegals working in American facilities and sending them home would likely have a positive effect on the prospects of some American workers. From yesterday’s WAPT Channel 16 ABC News

FOREST, Miss. —
A Mississippi food plant that was part of one of the largest immigration raids in U.S. history held a job fair Monday.

Looks like Koch Foods is trying quickly make up for that sudden worker shortage. As I predicted, this would cause the hiring of more Americans and likely have an impact on wages.

From USA Today

Kamerio Whitley, a resident of the nearby town of Morton, spoke to reporters after he left the building. He said there were several positions available at the plant, including forklift operators. Whitley said he applied for a job working at the plant’s rehang table, where workers hang frozen chickens. The job starts at $12 an hour, which is decent pay for the area, Whitley said. “That’s not bad to start, and it can always go up,” he said.

“Decent pay for the area…That’s not bad to start, and it can always go up.” Indeed. My bet is that it will indeed go up. If President Trump continues these type of operations that protect American workers by rounding up illegal aliens and sending them home, then there will be somewhat of a labor shortage. That will cause a number of things to happen:

—Increases in starting wages to get Americans off the bench and back into the workforce.

—This might cause some modest price increases, which in turn will…

—Cause some investment in technology to support those higher wages.

—Workers re-entering the workforce will take some pressure off of the “safety net,” translating into Federal & State budget savings (which will, of course, be promptly spent by both sides to purchase more votes).

By attacking multiple issues simultaneously, President Trump has had the effect of throwing three strikes in a row in bowling, where he gets more “points” for each policy he executes than he would if these policies weren’t all mutually supportive. And just think, it all started with some modest regulatory and tax reform.
