Sen. Rand Paul: “An important first step toward increasing accountability, oversight, and transparency in Washington.”

Eric Boehm|Jan. 17, 2017 12:16 pm

There were more than 90,000 pages added the Federal Register, that behemoth of a book that annually tracks the growth of the federal leviathan, during 2016, making last year's list of federal rules and regulations a full 10,000 pages longer than the previous record.

Including last year's record-breaker, 13 of the 15 longest registers in American history have been authored by the past two presidential administrations (Barack Obama owns seven of the top eight, with George W. Bush filling in most of the rest), according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free market D.C. think tank that diligently tracks the pages of the registry each year.

If Donald Trump's incoming administration aims to reverse that worrying trend—something the president-elect has claimed to want to do—then it could use a helping hand from Congress. The growth of the regulatory state is inextricably linked to the expansion of the executive branch's powers in recent decades, but those powers have expanded in part because congress has willingly winnowed its own authority.

"Congress has been all too happy to delegate away those powers to executive branch agencies," says Ryan Young, a fellow at CEI. "Suppose a regulation passes that is unpopular or backfires or is burdensome, then congressmen, who do have to face re-election every couple of years, can say 'don't blame me, blame the EPA or the FCC' or whichever agency is responsible."

Last year, for example, Congress passed 211 bills while federal regulatory agencies approved 3,852 regulations, Young says.

And what's so great about all these regulations is in many cases, to comply with one agencies' regulation you have to violate another agencies' regulation. The assholes have you by the nut sack coming and going.

Women's March logoWomen's March logoThe Women's March on Washington bills itself as a big-tent rally for anyone "who believes women's rights are human rights." Scheduled for the day after Donald Trump's inauguration as president, the Women's March goal, according to its website, is "bringing together people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations and backgrounds in our nation's capital on January 21, 2017, to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message of resistance and self-determination." But recent actions by Women's March organizers suggest this tribute to inclusivity is little more than lip-service.

A statement of "Unity Principles" for the march formerly professed to "stand in solidarity with sex workers' rights movements." But as Kate McGrew first pointed out Tuesday, this line has since been removed from the Women's March platform. In its place, the platform now promises to stand in solidarity "with all those exploited for sex and labor." The switch makes clear that the Women's March now only stands with people exploited for sex, not those abused and exploited by the state for having sex. If you're a victim, Big Feminism is with you. If not, well... what do you think this is, a movement respectful of women's agency or something?
The Women's March claims to be for anyone "who believes women's rights are human rights." And yet...

Glenn Greenwald January 16 2017, 8:38 a.m.

The leader of the U.K.’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, called for a “de-escalation” of tensions between NATO and Russia, adding in a BBC interview on Thursday: “I want to see a de-militarization of the border between them.” Along with the U.S., the U.K. has been rapidly building up its military presence in the Baltic region, including in states that border Russia, and is now about to send another 800 troops to Estonia, 500 of which will be permanently based.

In response, Russia has moved its own troops within its country near those borders, causing serious military tensions to rise among multiple nuclear-armed powers. Throughout 2016, the Russian and U.S. militaries have engaged in increasingly provocative and aggressive maneuvers against one another. This week, the U.S. began deploying 4,000 troops to Poland, “the biggest deployment of U.S. troops in Europe since the end of the Cold War.”
Few behaviors are more dangerous than escalating tensions between these two nuclear-armed powers.

Judge Andrew Napolitano was seen again meeting with President-Elect Trump in Trump Tower this morning. Speculation centered around the Supreme Court vacancy has everyone on high alert, and the idea of the Judge meeting for a second time with Trump has Libertarians on edge that their dream might come true; a Napolitano appointment to the court.

From Fox News:

President-elect Donald Trump sat down with Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on Tuesday, at Trump Tower, for advice on a potential nominee who could fill the empty Supreme Court seat following the sudden passing last February of Justice Antonin Scalia.

“The President-elect is focusing on his choices, or his choice, for the Supreme Court of the United States,” Napolitano told FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney. “We discussed the judicial attitudes, judicial temperament, judicial ideology, and candidates for the court.”

This is the second meeting between Judge Napolitano and the President-electOpens a New Window. since the election.

“It was awesome to say the least,” he said. “Of course you know the President-elect has an opinion on everything quite literally.”

He added, “He has a very high opinion of this show. I will tell you that.”

Trump’s Supreme Court pick is expected to be among one of the most contested appointments of the new administration.

The Affordable Care Act is considered the signature law from Barack Obama’s presidency, understandably so given its nickname, Obamacare. But as he prepares to leave office and we begin to assess his legacy, an earlier law better symbolizes his time as president and explains why he isn’t being succeeded by a Democrat.

And unlike Obamacare, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a.k.a. the “stimulus,” can’t be repealed.

Years after the stimulus, President Obama was still trying to assure Americans the economy would be fine. (Jamie Squire / Getty Images)

The country on Jan. 20, 2009, was in a deep recession. Obama’s first priority was an economic-recovery package. Washington had tried its hand at “stimulus” before, including the $168 billion Economic Stimulus Act signed by President George W. Bush about a year earlier. These efforts were mostly futile. This did not deter Democrats.

Three days after his inauguration, Obama met with congressional leaders about a plan that would be five times larger at roughly $800 billion. The meeting is chiefly remembered for two words, which he spoke to a Republican who questioned devoting more than twice as much money to spending as to tax cuts.

Those words: “I won.”

For every Democrat who decries Sen. Mitch McConnell’s vow exactly 21 months later to make Obama “a one-term president,” there is a Republican who recalls Obama’s remark as the first crack in his veneer of bipartisanship.

That crack would only widen. But more damaging to Obama’s legacy was the bill’s poor construction, which yielded poor results.

The money was to fund “shovel-ready” projects, quickly employing the jobless. It would be a public-works revival, a short-term outlay with lasting benefits. Yet only a year and a half later, as signs of the law’s impact proved elusive, Obama acknowledged “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.”

One irony is most of the bill’s provisions didn’t come from the White House. By most accounts, they came from Democrats in Congress. It was not the last time Obama would fail to manage relationships on Capitol Hill — with either party — particularly well.

Thus the “stimulus” foretold the dysfunction between Obama and Congress, and between Obama and Republicans, at a great cost and little economic benefit. The post-2009 recovery, such as it was, is generally attributed more to the Federal Reserve’s historically loose monetary policy.

It also helped launch the tea party. Americans who had simmered at Bush’s profligacy would boil over in spring 2009, angry about a series of debt-fueled bailouts and spending bonanzas that made deficits soar. They dominated national politics for much of the next two years and in 2010 helped the GOP take over the House, permanently altering the course of Obama’s presidency.

Fast-forwarding to 2016, it’s also apparent the lack of a robust recovery in the Rust Belt (and elsewhere) provided fertile ground for Donald Trump’s economic populism. Dozens of Midwestern counties that went twice for Obama flipped to Trump. They can’t be called racists. They’re Americans who backed Obama out of hope but, eight stagnant years later, turned to Trump out of desperation.

There is no sterner rebuke to Obama’s presidency than Trump’s election. And while frustration with immigration policy and political correctness helped put Trump in the White House, and Obamacare stands to consume his attention early on, the roots extend to Obama’s first major, and failed, initiative. America is poorer for it.

Baseball pennants in the outfield cast large shadows across the field at Champion Stadium as Braves top prospect Dansby Swanson makes an early morning walk to the batting cages to begin his day of spring training on Thursday, Feb 25, 2016, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports, Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The Braves may have finally found their new spring-training home.

Officials in Sarasota County, Fla., announced Tuesday that the Braves have entered into exclusive negotiations with the county and its partners at the West Villages development to build a new spring-training facility in the southwest Florida city of North Port.

If terms of an agreement can be reached, the Braves will move their spring base from Disney World to Sarasota County as soon as 2019, according to the announcement.

“There’s still a lot of work to do to finalize the terms, agreements and approvals necessary, but this announcement is a major step forward in the efforts to bring the Braves to our area,” Sarasota County Administrator Tom Harmer said in the announcement posted on the county’s website.

Braves spokeswoman Beth Marshall confirmed the announcement to the AJC, saying: “We have entered into exclusive negotiations with plans of it being our spring training home.”

According to the county, the parties will work over the next several months to finalize terms. The county plans to provide a public update at the Jan. 24 Board of County Commissioners meeting.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the entire region,” Sarasota County Commission Chair Paul Caragiulo said in a statement. “The potential economic impact for our community could be tremendous. We are looking forward to hearing more details about the negotiations next week.”

Sarasota County’s news release quoted Braves Chairman and CEO Terry McGuirk as saying: “We appreciate the patience of all parties during this process. This is the perfect location for our team and we couldn’t be more excited to be part of Sarasota County and West Villages.”,

The Braves have been seeking a new spring home in Florida for the past two years and have pursued several possible locations in Palm Beach County, Collier County (near Naples) and the St. Petersburg area, as well as Sarasota County.

In March, Sarasota County commissioners voted unanimously to authorize Harmer to continue negotiating the funding, design and construction details of a potential facility in North Port.

Last month, Collier County commissioners voted to break off negotiations with the Braves. Palm Beach County has continued to express interest, but has said no tourism tax dollars would be available there.

No details were released Tuesday about Sarasota County’s funding plan.

In March, commissioners were told that the Braves and Sarasota County were discussing a 100- to 150-acre site in the West Villages master-planned community in North Port, located in the southern part of the county. The concept under discussion then called for the West Villages’ developer to donate the land for the stadium complex and for money from local tourism taxes and the state of Florida to help pay for construction.

A feasibility study by Collier County had indicated a Braves facility would cost about $100 million and would be largely funded with taxpayer dollars.

More to come on this developing story.

On the first day of this year, it became a class 4 felony in Illinois—up from a business offense carrying a fine—to import 45 liters or more of liquor into the state without a license. The same minimum one-year prison sentence applies to bringing in more than 108 liters of wine or 118 liters of beer without government paperwork.

The law passed as a nudge-and-wink scheme between politicians who resent the loss of tax revenue when beverages are brought in across the state line, and local liquor distributors who bristle when out of state competitors elbow in on their action.

"Many out-of-state businesses are not compliant with Illinois tax laws, which undercuts Illinois businesses, depriving our state of money that could be going toward improving our schools, roads and social services," Karin Lijana Matura, executive director of Wine and Spirits Distributors of Illinois, an industry trade group, told WQAD.

The legislation came in response to a thriving illegal cross-border trade as Illinois residents place orders with businesses—many in Indiana—for liquor, wine, and beer unavailable or just extremely pricey through their state's tightly regulated and protected cartel.

"Alcohol is much more expensive in Illinois than it is in Indiana," reported a Chicago ABC affiliate in 2015. "And it is even pricier in Cook County, where the tax rate on liquor is more than five times higher than it is in the Hoosier state." The result is that "a six-bottle case of vodka that costs $167 in Indiana costs $226 in Illinois and is $18 more than that in Cook County."
Prohibition may be over, but high taxes and stupid restrictions create plentiful smuggling opportunities.

The shuttering of the Clinton Global Initiative in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s brutal election loss hasn’t resulted in any interest from the three networks. ABC CBS and NBC have skipped the news that the division of the Clinton Foundation will lay off employees and close in April.

CGI filed notice with New York on January 12, but news outlets began reporting it on January 16. On Monday and Tuesday, despite a combined 17 and a half hours of morning and evening air time, the networks punted. On Monday’s Fox and Friends, co-anchor Heather Childers co-anchor highlighted:

California just received enough fresh rainwater to entirely end the drought and still set some aside for later, but they still continue to dump water in the ocean for a bait fish.

Liberals have a tendency to do more harm than good, especially when it comes to micromanaging the environment. Every year, California sends full amounts of rainwater out into the ocean.

A giant swath of what used to be called, “the breadbasket of the world” is a desert because Sacramento with the help of Washington refuses to divert water to the farmland.

The Raspberry Pi has launched a new version of its Compute Module. Compared to the original model, which debuted nearly three years ago, the CM3 is based on Raspberry Pi hardware but packs twice the RAM and roughly 10x the CPU performance.

For even greater flexibility, Raspberry Pi is releasing two CM3 variants. The first is the ‘standard’ CM3 which features a BCM2837 processor at up to 1.2GHz with 1GB RAM and 4GB of on-module eMMC flash. The second is what the team is calling ‘CM3 Lite,’ which still has the same BCM2837 and 1GB RAM, but brings the SD card interface to the Module pins so you can integrate your own choice of eMMC or SD card socket. Just like the Pi 3, the CM3 is able to run Windows 10 IoT Core.

Microsoft made a big fuss out of the Windows 10 Creators Update's gaming features, and it's nearly ready to start delivering on them... including some that have remained mysterious. The company has revealed that it'll start trotting out a largely unknown Windows 10 Game Mode as part of Insider previews "this week." The improvement won't be fully functional until later releases, but Microsoft has at last shed some light on what it is: it'll fine-tune your PC to speed up gaming performance. This mode should help both legacy Windows games (Win32) and modern titles (UWP), so you won't have to be picky about what you're playing to notice a difference. You should "soon" hear a lot more about how it works, Microsoft says.

The news comes as Microsoft has detailed some of the already known upgrades hitting both the Xbox One and Windows 10 in the months ahead. Baked-in Beam livestreaming will be the centerpiece on both platforms, giving you a simple way to share whatever you're playing. On the Xbox One, you'll also see an enhanced, always-available Guide with faster access to game recording and music controls, an Achievement tracking overlay, a new look for Cortana and a Gamerscore leaderboard.

Both platforms will receive Xbox Live upgrades that help you connect to friends on social networks, a more social-friendly Activity Feed, better tools for Clubs and looking-for-group posts, and the option to start your own Arena tournaments in games like Killer Instinct and World of Tanks. So long as you're willing to be patient (you won't get much of this until at least the Creators Update), you'll have a lot to look forward to.

Previews will start introducing the feature this week.

Great Advertisement for the Class of 2016.. I am from Georgia and had to respond... These parents need to get over how their little suzie and sally are great upstanding citizens and innocent and let them live their lives and be the adults they are. They are ready to go out in the real world and Mom and Dad need to shut the hell up and realize their kids are grown and can make their own decisions. I have shared on Facebook and Google+ and want this to go viral. I am telling all my friends in Michigan about this place as well... Great Job!!!
