A year of accomplishments on the Trump agenda

When President Donald J. Trump was elected, he outlined his top goals: confirming a conservative justice to the Supreme Court, rolling back onerous regulations, fixing our health-care system, and changing our archaic tax code. We have begun to do that, and we are already seeing the economy start to move. Trump’s agenda is starting to work and this has been a year of significant accomplishments.

The wealthy receive more in the tax package because they pay more of the federal bill

Tuesday, the Republican Congress passed a tax reform bill — a bill that will be viewed with skepticism by many Americans. And no wonder. Local newspapers around the country —including The Telegraph — have dutifully printed numerous editorials masquerading as “news stories” from the Associated Press, McClatchy, The Washington Post and The New York Times about the bill. These sources repeatedly describe any version of the bill in negative terms, often repeating the left’s claim that the bill will be a big shell game, ultimately providing big bucks for the rich and pennies for the rest of us.

Gun control: The assault on Congress by the medical journals

In the wake of the heinous Las Vegas shooting, the medical politicians of the American Medical Association and the public health establishment — which is to the left side of politics on just about any topic even remotely related to medicine — have rallied to the cause of gun control political propaganda, rather than science. Toward the cause, they have resumed drumming up arguments that have been thoroughly refuted in the past. And this is true for the most prestigious medical journals, The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the British Lancet.
