  7. Daily Caller When the news dropped that Robert Mueller had submitted his report to Attorney General Bill Barr without any further indictments, liberal pundits had to process their dismay on live television, and the result was a combination of hysteria, disbelief, and denial. Chris Matthews, for instance, famously felt a thrill go up his leg over Barack Obama in 2009, but he seemed to feel a chill going down his spine as he reported that Mueller would not be making any further indictments. The MSNBC host was in rare form Friday night, angrily biting off each word as he demanded to know, “Why. Was there never. An interrogation. Of this president.” Matthews refused to believe that the “experts” who have been assuring him and his liberal audience for nearly two years that Mueller’s investigation would result in criminal charges against President Trump could have been wrong the whole time. Matthews long ago determined in his own mind that the president is guilty of obstruction of justice and collusion, and the “experts” he hosts on his show have reinforced that conclusion so firmly that Matthews seemed genuinely unable to understand why Mueller did not file any charges against Donald Trump, asking, “How can they let Trump off the hook?” The host was particularly incensed that President Trump never had to “sit down with the Special Counsel Mueller and answer his damn questions,” wondering, “How can that happen?!” Matthews was obviously experiencing the second stage of grief, which is anger. His MSNBC colleague, Rachel Maddow, on the other hand, expressed her anguish somewhat differently. Apparently, she was still stuck in the first stage, which is denial. “Our job tonight as a country sort of — or at least what everybody in the country is going to be doing tonight, is trying to figure out what it means that the report of special counsel Robert Mueller has finally been submitted,” Maddow said near the beginning of her show, in between pained facial expressions. “In terms of what that means and what Mueller found, we know only the smallest little bits,” she added. “This is the start of something, apparently, not the end of something.” That assessment is a comical mix of wishful thinking and delusion. The fact that Mueller submitted his report means only one thing: that he’s finished with his investigation. Maddow is probably correct that “this is the start of something,” since Democrats in Congress have made it clear that they plan to subject President Trump to endless investigations in the hopes of uncovering something that Mueller couldn’t, but the Mueller probe is over, no matter how cartoonishly Maddow grimaces. In between the Matthews and Maddow meltdowns, a stone-faced Jim Acosta went on CNN to discuss the “glee” that the President’s supporters are feeling now that Mueller has submitted his report and will not pursue any additional indictments. Acosta very evidently didn’t share in that glee, sounding as though he was on the verge of gagging when he quoted a Trump campaign advisor as saying that “this is a great day for America.” To wash the taste of MAGA out of his mouth, Acosta immediately pivoted to speculating that Mueller’s report might still contain damaging information about President Trump. Realizing that such a long-shot hypothetical circumstance probably offered cold comfort to CNN viewers, Acosta also interjected that “we still don’t know the conclusion of what’s happening in the Southern District of New York,” then reminded his audience that Democrats in Congress will accuse the administration of a cover-up if so much as a single word is redacted from the Mueller report when it is released to the public. This is despite the fact that Acosta and congressional leaders are well aware that information derived from grand jury testimony and a host of other sources cannot be disclosed by the attorney general. The mixture of sputtering outrage, wishful thinking, and excuse-making that pervaded the cable news networks Friday night reveals that even the most liberal partisans know that Mueller’s report will be the death knell of the Russia collusion hoax they’ve been perpetuating since before Mueller was even appointed. ________ Media in mourning mode.
  8. Daily Caller GOP Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz is preparing to introduce a “Green Real Deal” resolution to contrast with Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, according to Politico. Ocasio-Cortez unveiled her resolution on Feb. 7 and immediately faced criticism for its scope and potential cost, which reached toward tens of trillions of dollars. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Bungled Green new Deal’s Release. Her Staff Took Its Webpage Offline) A draft of Gaetz’s resolution, obtained by Politico, recognizes risks to the U.S. from climate change, citing Department of Defense reports that identify certain military assets and bases as at risk to rising sea levels and increasing severe weather events, such as hurricanes. “Climate change creates new risks and exacerbates existing vulnerabilities in communities across the United States, presenting growing challenges to human health and safety, quality of life, and the rate of economic growth,” the draft says. Energy lobbyists have seemingly received copies of Gaetz’s resolution are beginning to line up behind it in support. ________ A Real Deal?
  9. Breitbart March 23 (UPI) — Longtime president of the Southern Poverty Law Center Richard Cohen announced his resignation Friday in a continued fallout at the civil rights organization that led to the departure of its co-founder Morris Dees last week. Cohen’s announcement also comes on the heels of Rhonda Brownsten, the center’s legal director, stepping down, Alabama’s Montgomery Advertiser reported. The center has begun an audit of the organization’s practices after some had criticized it for sexual harassment, gender discrimination and racism. Tina Tchen, a former White House official, is leading the audit. “Given my long tenure as the SPLC president, however, I do not think I should be involved in that process beyond cooperating with Tina, her team, and the board in any way that may be helpful,” said Cohen, who has been president since 2003 and connected with the organization since 1986. “Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen added. While the center did not disclose the reasons for Dees’ departure, a letter signed by two dozen employees before his termination accused the SPLC’s co-founder of “mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism” and said his actions threaten the center’s moral authority and integrity. ________ How can he threaten something they don't have?
  10. The Blaze Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, was hit with a new complaint this week alleging his campaign is violating federal election laws by employing foreign nationals in campaign advisory positions. What are the details? The complaint alleges that Sanders' presidential campaign has employed three foreign nationals in "direct and serious" violation of Federal Election Commission regulations. Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed the complaint with the FEC, the Washington Free Beacon first reported. The most notable foreign national working for Sanders is Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is protected under DACA. She is the campaign's deputy national press secretary, a senior-level advisory role. "Senator Sanders and Bernie 2020 is permitting a foreign national, Ms. Sisa, to serve in an advisory position which allows her to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to election-related activities in violation of FEC regulations," the complaint alleges. FEC regulations "prohibit foreign nationals from directing, dictating, controlling, or directly or indirectly participating in the decision-making process of any person with regard to any election-related activities," the FEC website states. "Such activities include, the making of contributions, donations, expenditures, or disbursements in connection with any federal or nonfederal elections in the United States, or decisions concerning the administration of any political committee." ________ Bernie's foreign influences?
  11. The Day Treva Throneberry Disappeared MARCH 1, 2002 — BY SKIP HOLLANDSWORT IIn the mid-eighties the cheerful high school student vanished. After more than a decade had passed, her friends and family in her tiny North Texas hometown of Electra had no idea where she was—or if she was dead or alive. They certainly didn’t know that almost two thousand miles away her fate was kept secret by a teenage girl named Brianna Stewart. Electra, Texas 1985 She was a pretty girl, thin, with a spray of pale freckles across her face and light brown hair that curled just above her shoulders. The librarian at the high school called her “a quiet-type person,” the kind of student who yes-ma’amed and no-ma’amed her teachers. She played on the tennis team, practicing with an old wooden racket on a crack-lined court behind the school. In the afternoons she waitressed at the Whistle Stop, the local drive-in hamburger restaurant, jumping up on the running boards of the pickup trucks so she could hear better when the drivers placed their orders. Her name was Treva Throneberry, and just about everybody in that two-stoplight North Texas oil town knew her by sight. She was never unhappy, people said. She never complained. She always greeted her customers with a shy smile, even when she had to walk out to their cars on winter days when the northers came whipping off the plains, swirling ribbons of dust down the street. During her breaks, she’d sit at a back table and read from her red Bible that zipped open and shut. https://www.texasmonthly.com/articles/the-day-treva-throneberry-disappeared/
  12. I don't call it the Clown News Network for nothing.
  13. Watchdog.org A Michigan appellate court this week ruled that a teacher has the right to resign from his union and stop paying it dues despite the union's refusal to allow him to do so. The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, which represented teacher Ronald Robinson in his legal fight against the union, said the decision further enhances Michigan's right-to-work laws. “The court ruled that these tricks couldn't stop the teachers from exercising their rights under the right-to-work law,” Derk Wilcox, an attorney with that Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, said in an email. In an unpublished appellate court decision, the court ruled that the Michigan Education Association (MEA) and the Ann Arbor Education Association (AAEA) committed an unfair labor practice by continuing to charge Robinson dues after he opted out of the union following the passage of Michigan’s right-to-work law.
  14. Watchdog.Org The Illinois Senate this week heard testimony on a bill to bail out College Illinois, a Ponzi scheme doubling as an ominous symbol of the state. More than 20 years ago, a state agency called the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, or ISAC, started offering a plan where families could “pre-pay” for their child’s college tuition at a fixed price, thus “locking in” savings. Here’s the catch: ISAC had no business making those promises and the state isn’t required to pony up the money necessary to back them if tuition surges beyond ISAC’s investment returns. Now the College Illinois program is $300 million short, and more than 2,600 contract holders stand not to receive their full benefit. Overpromise and underdeliver: Illinois’ unofficial motto. College Illinois is just the latest political promise to fall apart. But that hasn’t stopped the state’s new governor from making equally irresponsible claims.
  15. Washington Times Try explaining marginal tax cuts to a room of 5th graders. Once, on Ronald Reagan’s birthday, I tried to explain what the top rate was like before our 40th president took office. “Imagine doing some chores for your grandparents,” I said, “and your grandma gives you $10. Then, when you get home, your parents take $7 from you. That’s what the tax rates were like before President Reagan took office. The students immediately said that wasn’t fair. Even 5th graders get it. The last time the top tax rate was 70 percent was back in the days when President Jimmy Carter talked about a country in a malaise. Now, socialists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and Sen. Ed Markey want to bring that top tax rate back as part of the so-called “Green New Deal.” AOC’s response when I tweeted about the fact that even 5th graders realized that wasn’t fair was to suggest that only a limited number of people would pay the tax. It reminded me of when former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said, “the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money” to spend.
  16. Byron York: Five things that didn't happen in the Mueller investigation Robert Mueller has delivered his report on the Trump-Russia investigation to Attorney General William Barr. Sometime soon, perhaps within hours, Barr will send the report's "principal conclusions" to Congress. It will first go to the chairperson and ranking member of both the House and Senate Judiciary committees. It is unclear what will happen after that, but certainly other lawmakers will see the document, and there will be a steady stream of leaks of what is in the report. The Mueller investigation is over, and it is apparently the case that Mueller does not recommend any new indictments. At this point, it is not possible to say what is in the report. But even at this early moment, it is possible to note some things did not happen during the Mueller investigation.
  17. Heritage Foundation Many on the left are calling for the nation to get rid of the Electoral College. And it appears that many in the media support this notion. Unfortunately, progressives and their media allies have waged a disinformation campaign to bury the intentions of the Founders, or distort the Founders’ views on an institution vital to the republic. Detractors have absurdly connected the Electoral College to racism and slavery.

  22. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews livid over Mueller report: ‘How could they let Trump off the hook?’ MSNBC host Chris Matthews expressed outrage on Friday upon hearing reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had completed his Russia investigation and submitted it to the attorney general -- with further indictments not expected. Matthews began his show by summarizing the breaking news, but stressed that Mueller handed his report to the Department of Justice “without ever directly interviewing the president of the United States.” “That means no charges against the president, his children or his associates after all those meetings with the Russians,” a visibly upset Matthews told his viewers.
