 For years, conservatives and libertarians have been demanding the government rein in wasteful federal spending. Even liberal former President Obama once promoted the idea of agency consolidation. One agency, the Centers for Disease Control, has been called out for wasteful spending and duplication of effort for many years. Now a new report published Dec. 19, 2016, by EconoSTATS had done it again. The think tank’s work revealed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been duplicating work done by 19 other federal agencies.

New on January 23: ABC’s Terry Moran declared President Trump’s “America First" Inaugural address reminded him of Nazi sympathizers: “It carries with it overtones from the 1930s when an anti-Semitic movement saying, ‘We don't want to get involved in Europe;s war. It’s the Jews’ fault in Germany.’...the words themselves carry very ugly echos in our history.”

On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Van Jones offered his theory about the controversy over the size of the crowd that attended President Trump's inauguration: "Ordinary leaders rely on the Constitution as a source of their legitimacy. But you get these kind of leaders that have these more authoritarian overtones — it's not the power of our constitution; it's the size of their crowds. The legitimacy doesn't come from these documents. They come from the fact that I represent something." Jones later added, "When you diminish his crowd size, it's...a blow to his sense of legitimacy."

New York Times right-of-center columnist Ross Douthat diplomatically but thoroughly documented the liberal bias and anti-Trump animus in the mainstream press. Of necessity, he avoided criticizing his own paper, but some of the shrewd points he made in “The Tempting of the Media” on Sunday certainly apply to journalists at his own paper. Douthat summarized “two common views among journalists about the fate of our profession under the presidency of Donald Trump,” one of a crackdown on independent journalism, the other “a golden age...for serious investigative journalism.” But he had another worry: "hysterical oppositionalism" to Trump.

In Hollywood, there are unforgivable crimes – performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration, for one. Making a serious movie about Christ’s passion and death, for another. But a powerful and celebrated 43-year-old director raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old? Not so much.

What do we do if we are increasingly willing to ignore “facts?” According to Jeff Rivers, “we’ll end up in real trouble.” Writing for ESPN’s The Undefeated blog, Rivers writes that when it comes to public policy “we too often allow ideology and political maneuvering to render facts moot, especially when those facts support inconvenient truths such as global climate change.”

The January 27 edition of Entertainment Weekly magazine devoted two pages to a kissy-kissy Obama farewell titled “The Obamas’ Best Pop Culture Moments.”  Hollywood loved the Obamas, and cooperated in their propaganda ministry whenever requested. These are now “precious moments” to Entertainment Weekly, even the pedestrian note that the Obama daughters took an Inauguration selfie in 2013. The Obamas are "amazing and graceful," "always health-conscious" and "funny" and "badass."

The CBS Man With a Plan episode appropriately titled "The Talk" made the birds and the bees a little more liberal than the traditional way parents put it for their children, adding only shock and confusion.
