“Tyrants Don’t Get Rid of Rules; They Pile Them On” (Strassel)

“Obama finished his final 2016 calendar year with an all-time Federal Register record of 95,894 pages. A year later, on December 29, 2017, the first year of Trump, the Federal Register concluded at 61,308 pages. It was the lowest count since 1993, Bill Clinton’s first year in office. By the end of 2018, an analysis by the Competitive Enterprise Institute showed that Trump had issued the fewest number of regulations in recorded history in his first two years of office. Tyrants don’t get rid of rules; they pile them on.”

— Kim Strassel in her new book, “Resistance (At All Costs): How Trump Haters Are Breaking America”. Great book. For example, it documents the criminal activity of James Comey, our former FBI Director, extremely well. Strassel is one of the last decent, honest and genuinely objective journalists left in the mainstream media.
