President Obama’s lame duck administration poured on thousands more new regulations in 2016 at a rate of 18 for every new law passed, according to a Friday analysis of his team’s expansion of federal authority. While Congress passed just 211 laws, Obama’s team issued an accompanying 3,852 new federal regulations, some costing billions of dollars. The 2016 total was the highest annual number of regulations under Obama. Former President Bush issued more in the wake of 9/11. The proof that it was an overwhelming year for rules and regulations is in the Federal Register, which ended the year Friday by printing a record-setting 97,110 pages, according to the analysis from the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The annual “Unconstitutional Index” from Clyde Wayne Crews, CEI’s vice president for policy, said that it was much higher under Obama than under former President George W. Bush. “The multiple did tend to be higher during Obama administration. Bush’s eight years averaged 20, while Obama’s almost-eight have averaged 29,” said his report..
This is a staggering amount of rules and regulations that Obama and his fascist regime have imposed on we-the-people. Hopefully, Trump will make it a priority to roll back, and erase, some of these onerous, and frankly unconstitutional, rules and regulations that have cost us billions and billions of dollars.

A petition is demanding that Hunter College fire Matthew Lasner, an associate professor of urban studies, after his husband accosted Ivanka Trump on a JetBlue flight. More than 8,000 people have signed the Change.org petition asking that Hunter College fire Lasner from his position due to his “immature and cruel harassment of Ivanka Trump and her family at JFK airport,” the Daily Mail reports. The petition was started by a group called “Right Wing Millennials.” “Someone like Mr. Lasner, who would harass a mother and her child simply trying to go about their day, does not deserve the honor of teaching,” reads the petition. “The fact that he tried to cover up and change the story around to avoid the consequences of his actions is also a testament to his character. He is NOT a good example for our youth,” the petition continues. Lasner and his husband Daniel Goldstein were asked to leave a JetBlue flight after Goldstein shouted at Ivanka, “Your father is ruining the country” before declaring that “She should be flying private,” Breitbart previously reported. “My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane,” Lasner wrote on Twitter. But an hour before the incident, Lasner, who is very vocal about his dislike for Trump, wrote on Twitter, “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil.” Lasner has since deleted the tweets and his account, but the backlash against him continues. People have given Lasner’s book on Amazon negative ratings shortly after the JetBlue incident.
I bet! This lunatic should be fired not just for being an embarrassment to Hunter College for his poor manners and lack of professionalism, but for his idiocy. In his breathtakingly rude, and unprovoked, rant against Ivanka (who was with her children sitting in coach on a JetBlue airline), this braintrust said, “your father is ruining the country.” Huh? The man has yet to sit in ANY political office. Perhaps this so-called “professor” needs some education in basic American civics…and someone to tell him that Obama has been the President the last 8 years; not Donald Trump. What a moron.. Yeah.. If you’re so motivated, go sign that petition.
An armed, Mableton, Georgia, gun store owner shot and killed one of two suspects who allegedly ordered him to the floor Monday morning during a burglary gone wrong. The incident occurred at Dixie Gun and Pawn just as the store was opening for the day. According to Action News 5, store owner Jimmy Groover said that “two men wearing masks came in with guns drawn, demanding that he get on the floor, while shouting they were going to kill him.” But Groover was wearing a handgun on his hip, and according to Fox 13 Memphis, “Police said [Groover] pulled out his gun and fired, hitting one of the gunmen.” The suspects opened fire as well, and police arrived to find shattered glass and the body of the one of the two suspects lying on the floor. The second suspect fled the scene. Groover said his store has been robbed numerous times during the 30 years that his family has owned it, but this was the first time that people allegedly tried to rob it during business hours.
Kudos to Jimmy for doing what he had to do; putting that one maggot down. Let’s hope the word gets out to into the community, and that the police find (and arrest) the second idiot.
