Alabama Special Election: Winners and Losers (Wed, 13 Dec 2017)
WINNERS: Doug Jones: Little-known inside Alabama and utterly unknown outside the state, the Democratic candidate finally found his voice in the waning days of the campaign. “I’ll never embarrass you” hardly has the ring of “It’s Morning Again in America,” but it nicely summed up what this election was about — and got the job done. Jones didn’t hedge on his party’s litmus-test social issues, including abortion, which means that he managed to win while running as a generic national Democrat in one of the most solidly Republican states in the...

Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith Named to Fill Franken Seat (Wed, 13 Dec 2017)
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton appointed Lt. Gov. Tina Smith on Wednesday to fill fellow Democrat Al Franken’s Senate seat until a special election in November, setting up his longtime and trusted adviser for a potentially bruising 2018 special election. Smith was widely seen as Dayton’s top choice from the moment Franken announced his resignation last week. But her previous decision not to run for governor had raised questions about her appetite for a closely watched and expensive Senate campaign. Smith said she is in and fully committed. “I can...

The True Tax Gap: How About Trillion! (Wed, 13 Dec 2017)
WASHINGTON -- When historians examine President Trump's tax program, they will surely be struck by a large and momentous contradiction. Although the nation faces endless budget deficits -- and although the president purports to speak about the future -- his tax program does little or nothing to curb long-term deficits and, arguably, might make them worse. It is said that the tax gap of the Trump-Republican program -- the net amount of the tax cut -- is somewhere between zero (the administration's position -- the tax cut will pay for itself through stronger economic growth) and $1.5 trillion...

Still Dawdling Over Deadly Diversity Visas (Wed, 13 Dec 2017)
Capitol Hill's national security priorities are screwier than a Six Flags roller coaster. Instead of immediately shutting down one of America's stupidest visa programs, which helped bring us yet another murder-minded jihadist this week, bipartisan Beltway politicians are pushing to preserve and expand the illegal immigration pipeline. Republicans and Democrats in Congress want a "fix" for the Obama administration's executive amnesty covering nearly 700,000 illegal immigrants -- and they want it pronto. Translation: Protecting border-hopping "DREAMers" is a more important priority in...

Michelle Malkin: ‘How Many More People Have to Die’ Before Congress Ends ‘Visa Lottery?’ (Wed, 13 Dec 2017)
Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative commentator Michelle Malkin slammed Republicans and Democrats in Congress for failing to end the so-called diversity visa lottery program, an immigration policy that’s been under fire for being exploited by foreign terror suspects. Malkin attacked the GOP-led Congress for not having already ended the visa lottery, where 50,000 visas are randomly given out to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries. Those countries include ones with known terrorist problems, such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan. Partial transcript as follows: There are millions of people around the world who are clamoring to get in here the right way and the fact that we still do it randomly tells you how much insanity — politically incorrect sanity — has set in. I mean, it was just seven weeks ago with the truck jihadist, who also got in here through the Diversity Visa Lottery and also benefitted from the chain migration insanity that we had people saying ‘Oh yeah, we’ve got to get rid of it! We’ve got to get rid of it!’And I’m so exasperated my friends because
