Weekly Wrap-Up

In a win for corrupt officials everywhere, this week we finally found something that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is good at – escaping prosecution for corruption.  The New York Post makes no bones about it – it’s too bad the Mayor is incompetent at everything else.

How would you describe the news that de Blasio will get off scot-free on these corruption charges? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll. 

As you answer, consider the irony that de Blasio could now face a challenge from someone who’s even better at corruption. How likely is it, in your opinion, that Hillary Clinton will run for Mayor of New York City? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

Meanwhile, President Trump this week continued his unheard-of-in-D.C. strategy of keeping his campaign promises by releasing a budget that scales back government’s size and scope and strengthens our defenses.  It’s a great start at putting Washington in its place – and it also puts Republican lawmakers on the spot as their promises of limited government are put to the test. 

The Washington Examiner has the winners and losers – what do you think is the most sensible cost-cutting measure in President Trump’s newly-released federal budget proposal? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

As President Trump follows through on the promises he’s made, many sense a more optimistic spirit in our economy… and many businesses are going back to hiring mode

Is it “un-American” for businesses and entrepreneurs to feel confident about the Trump economy? Chuck Schumer and the media elites may very well think so.

There are still reasons for concern – especially (as we’ve seen this week in the courts’ dangerous, “Twilight Zone”-style rulings on President Trump’s immigration orders) since activist judges are going above-and-beyond to defy the White House rather than simply apply the Constitution.

Have a great weekend!
