Victory! Administration restores regulatory oversight at IRS and Treasury Dept.

Jenny Beth Martin wrote a column back in January urging the Trump administration to get Internal Revenue Service (IRS) back on track after years of the agency evading regulatory oversight of its tax rules. “The IRS should be held to at least the same standard — if not a higher standard, given its power over every single taxpayer in the nation, both individual and corporate — as every other executive branch department and agency.” Jenny Beth Martin wrote in her column. “[President Trump] can direct his Treasury secretary to direct his general counsel to update the 1983 memorandum of agreement between the Treasury general counsel and the ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Gorsuch is an example of what our courts need

It’s been a year since Justice Neil Gorsuch was sworn in to the U.S. Supreme Court and not only has he made a big impact on the court, he has shown he’s the perfect pick to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The Washington Times has the commentary: The judiciary is the one co-equal branch of our government that can have long-lasting, profound and intimate bearing on the American people. Laws can be changed and even repealed, and executive orders can be reversed. But Supreme Court decisions — even the worst of them — can last for decades and generations. As just one example, the Plessy v. Ferguson decision — the one that codified ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: House GOP should create and pass a rescission package

To make up for the passage of the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill, House Republicans are planning to pass a balanced budget amendment that would actually make things even worse. While their goal is to demonstrate fiscal responsibility — one of the main reasons why House Republicans hold the majority in the first place — Goodlatte’s balanced budget amendment doesn’t contain a simple spending limitation provision. If they really want to demonstrate fiscal discipline, they should throw out the amendment and call for rescissions of wasteful and unnecessary funds. Jenny Beth explains in The Hill: We shouldn’t spend money we don’t have. ...

Jenny Beth Journal: Chappaquiddick ‘emphatically reminds us how intoxicating and effective power and privilege can be’

“Chappaquiddick” will officially premiere in theaters today against a backdrop of high-profile scandals and it’s not at all what one would expect from Hollywood’s liberal and condescending lecturers. Throughout the movie, it does not go unnoticed that it strips away the decades-long myth perpetuated by the Kennedy family and spotlights Mary Jo Kopechne as a victim and Kennedy as more concerned with his political career than the life of a woman and the legality of his own conduct. Jenny Beth previews the film in the Washington Times: Whether coincidence or not, “Chappaquiddick,” produced by Entertainment Studios, premieres April 6th ...
