RELIGIOUS LIBERTY NEWS,,CHILD TAX CREDIT,,TAX REFORM,

The current tax plan is a disaster and needs to be reformed for all Americans. President Donald J. Trump is committed to bringing historic tax relief to the American people based on four key ideas – cutting taxes for every day Americans, simplifying the tax code, giving business the competitive edge, and investing in America. Today, President Trump is traveling to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to deliver this message on tax reform to the American Trucker Association.

“TRUMP IS OVERWRITING OBAMA’S UNLAWFUL GREEN SCHEMES”

– Rich Lowry, New York Post

Rich Lowry in the New York Post writes on President Trump’s effort to roll back the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan, which was imposed with “tendentious readings of the law and sweeping bureaucratic actions.” Lowry comments President Trump “has operated within constitutional lines better than his technocratic predecessor,” and the real problem with President Obama’s environmental plan is that it must not be instituted by “strained legal interpretations alone,” which it originally was, enough so that the Supreme Court blocked “its implementation pending all the lawsuits against it.” Furthermore, although President Obama’s Climate Action Plan was designed to have an impact on global warming, Lowry reports the most it would do is “reduce the global temperature by 15 one-thousands of a degree by 2100.” Lowry concludes that President Obama’s “impatience with Congress and his administrative imperiousness,” led to presumptuous polices, and “what he imposed unilaterally is subject to unilateral reversal.”

On tax reform, the Observer’s Peter Ferrara writes President Trump’s tax reform plan is “a large, even historic, pro-growth tax rate cut based on the same model as the enormously successful Kennedy and Reagan tax cuts,” and it is “historical facts, not opinion,” that President Trump’s plan will also “grow federal revenue.”

————

Regarding immigration, the editorial board of Investor’s Business Daily comments that President Trump’s 70-point immigration plan “leans heavily toward reinforcing the U.S. border against illegal crossings,” is “long overdue,” and the President is being “generous” for being open to legalizing the Dreamers while only asking Congress to “take the border seriously,” in return.

In religious liberty news, The Hill’s Jonathan Easley remarks “Trump’s presidency has been a triumph for the religious right,” as in the past week, the social conservatives faced three major gains focused on pro-life and religious freedom.

————

And The Associated Press reports on Ivanka Trump’s successful push to “get a family-focused tax credit included in the Republican tax overhaul proposal.” Ivanka has been busy meeting with lawmakers to gain support for the plan, stating the child tax credit will give families “the flexibility to make the best choices regarding their families’ care,” AP writes.

“TAX REFORM WILL GIVE WORKERS A RAISE”

– Lawrence Lindsey, The Wall Street Journal

 

Lawrence Lindsey, president and CEO of the Lindsey Group, writes in the The Wall Street Journal that if President Trump’s tax reform package passes through Congress, “we can expect economic growth to accelerate to roughly 3.2% for the next three to five years,” which history suggests will ultimately result in higher “real” wages for workers. The bill also encourages entrepreneurship and small-business formation, “the ultimate driver of productivity growth,” Lindsey remarks before commenting that a “rise in real wages” would “lead to the first sustained decline in income inequality in more than 40 years.” If the plan passes, “The American economy will finally start working in the interest of the great middle class and not simply those at the top,” Lindsey concludes.

On the tax reform push, Laura Olson of The Morning Call reports President Trump will pitch his tax plan to “roughly 1,000 people, including lots of truckers,” in Harrisburg, PA on Wednesday. The President plans to speak about how his plan “will benefit truckers by lowering their tax rates, boosting manufacturing, and making it easier for families to pass their trucking business onto their children,” Olson writes.

————

Regarding the need for a tax overhaul, U.S. Treasury Department Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Tony Sayegh writes in Wisconsin Business Voice that “it is time for lawmakers to put partisanship aside and come together to get our economy and wages growing at a much faster rate,” calling President Trump’s tax plan a “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to put “America first.”

————

And in the Washington Examiner, Joseph Lawler reports President Trump’s tax reform plan looks to “increase the typical family’s earnings by $4,000,” an estimate that remains consistent with his argument that lowering the corporate tax rate and reforming corporate taxes will raise earnings for the American people.

In labor news, Andy Puzder, opinion contributor at The Hill, comments that the 16-year low unemployment rate of 4.2 percent is a result of President Trump’s deregulation efforts, which have led to “businesses across the country are [sic] hiring and more Americans are [sic] working better jobs for higher pay.”

On Sunday the  24th, President Donald J. Trump announced the establishment of enhanced national security measures, aimed at creating—for the first time in history—minimum requirements for international cooperation to support visa and immigration vetting and adjudications for individuals seeking entry to the United States.

This is a critical step toward establishing an immigration system that protects Americans’ safety and security in an era of dangerous terrorism and transnational crime.

“Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens — to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.”

Strengthening Security Standards for Traveling to America
President Trump is taking key steps to protect the American people from those who would enter our country and do us harm. The President is putting the security of the Nation first by implementing minimum security standards for immigration, enhancing security through more rigorous vetting, and properly screening individuals coming to this country in order to ensure the safety of the American people.

8th of August declared a public holiday.

8th August,

 In The Gazette Notice no. 7405.THE PUBLIC HOLIDAYS ACT. (CAP.110) DECLARATION OF A PUBLIC HOLIDAY. 

IT IS, or it has been notified for the general information of The General public that, The Acting Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Co ordination of  National Government, In exercise of The powers conferred by section 2 (4) of The Public Holidays Act, has declared that Tuesday, The 8th of August,  2017, will be a public holiday to accord Kenyans the opportunity to participate In the 2017 General Election.  

This is a PETITION TO OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO ACT IN PUBLIC INTEREST AND PROMOTE, PROTECT, AND UPHOLD THE RULE OF LAW WITH RESPECT TO COMMENCEMENT OF THE PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANIZATIONS ACT, 2013 AND ADVISE THE GOVERNMENT APPROPRIATELY ON HOW TO LAWFULLY TRANSITION THE OUTDATED NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS COORDINATION ACT TO PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANIZATIONS ACT

 PETITION TO OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO ACT IN PUBLIC INTEREST AND PROMOTE, PROTECT, AND UPHOLD THE RULE OF LAW WITH RESPECT TO COMMENCEMENT OF THE PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANIZATIONS ACT, 2013 AND ADVISE THE GOVERNMENT APPROPRIATELY ON HOW TO LAWFULLY TRANSITION THE OUTDATED NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS COORDINATION ACT TO PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANIZATIONS ACT

 

The Civil Society Reference Group (CSRG) petitioned  the A.G’s office pursuant to Article 37 of the Bill of Rights as guaranteed in the Constitution as a holder of a State Office.

 

The petition stems from the glaring failure of this office to appropriately advise the National Government, in particular the Ministry of Devolution and Planning and that of Interior and Coordination of National Government to respect the law as directed by the High Court (Justices Joshua Odunga on October 31, 2016 and John Mativo on May 12, 2017 respectively) that they commence the Public Benefit Organizations Act, 2013 within 14 days and 30 days respectively.

on September 9, 2016, the Cabinet Secretary for Devolution and Planning Mwangi Kiunjuri wrote to the A.G s office after a series of consultative meetings with stakeholders and civil society representatives instructing that said office gazettes a commencement date for the Public Benefit Organizations Act, a law that was assented to by retired President Mwai Kibaki on January 14, 2013 just before his term came to an end.

 

But rather than act with speed as had been directed by the CS who was required under the law to choose the appointed date for the coming in to force of the law, AG s office connived with the NGO Coordination Bureau specifically with the Chief Executive Officer Fazul Mahamed alias Mahamed Yusuf to sponsor and file a case challenging the gazettement of the PBO Act.

 

 

 

 

 

Later, on October 31, 2016 after Justice Joseph Onguto sitting in the High Court in Nairobi delivered a judgement on Petition No. 351 of 2015, in which Trusted Society for Human Rights Alliance had sued the Ministry of Devolution and National Planning directing that the law be commenced within 14 days, the A.G’s office watched as the Ministry and the Chief of Staff and Head of the Public Service Joseph Kinyua engaged in underhand manouevres to undermine justice by transferring the NGO Coordination docket from the Ministry of Devolution and Planning to that of Interior and Coordination of National Government. 

Convinced that the aim of the transfer of the docket was designed to defeat the course of justice, and to protect the Chief Executive Officer of the NGO Board Fazul Mahamed, the plaintiffs moved to the High Court again, this time around citing the CS for Devolution and Planning and, AG s office for contempt of court.

 

Ruling on May 12, 2017 on Petition No. 351 of 2015 and the subsequent contempt of court case that arose after the government failed to obey the court’s directive to commence the Act, Justice Mativo directed,  ruled that the minister for Interior should now follow the court’s directive or be jailed personally. Again, as in the previous instance, AGs  office kept a studious silence as the late CS for Interior disregarded the new court directives and  30-days window lapsed on June 19 without commencement of the law, despite the fact that it is your (the A.G’s) office that represented the government in the case!

 

Once again, Said  office, established under Article 156 of the Constitution as the principal legal advisor to the Government and legal representative in all cases in which the Government is a party, and which office is charged with the onerous functions of promoting, protecting and upholding the rule of law, failed to act and advise the relevant Ministry and departments to respect the court directives.

 

The instances cited are not the only ones in which the A.G s office has failed to act in public interest. 

You are aware that in November 2016, the Commission on Administrative Justice (CAJ), a Constitutional Commission to boot, recommended that the Chief Executive Officer of the NGO Coordination Board Fazul Mahamed be dismissed from office for using a fake degree certificate to secure the job. The Commission also recommended that he be surcharged for all the more than Ksh 8.5 million he had earned cumulatively as salary from when he was irregularly appointed.

 

To date,there is kept a studious silence on the matter, even after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) published in the Gazette Notice its findings confirming that indeed, Fazul Mahamed used forged academic papers to get employed as the CEO of the NGO Board despite the fact that this  office is the clearing house for all gazette notices!

 

Recently, apparently acting out interests that are only known to the A.G  personally, his  office sprang into action when the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Science and Technology sought to reconstitute various University Councils, including that of the University of Nairobi. In your (the A.G’s) legal opinion which was published and publicised in a cross section of the print and electronic media nationally, you faulted and overruled the Education Cabinet Secretary for appointing new members to the UoN Council even “before cases related to their tenure are heard and determined”. Through a letter dated June 28, 2017 A.G’s office said that even though Matiang’i has powers to appoint members of Councils through Section 36 of the Universities Act, due procedure must be followed. In the said letter, A.G is  quoted to have written thus:

 

 

“The corresponding power regarding the removal of council members must be in accordance with the University of Nairobi Charter (2012), the Letter of Interim Authority and the State Corporations Act,” But even as you seem to have gone out of your way to proffer such sound advisory, it did not occur to you that similar cases, including refusal by the CEO of the NGO Coordination Board to reinstate staff he dismissed illegally have not merited your attention even after the Industrial and Labour Relations court directed that they be reinstated unconditionally!

 

It is against these acts of commission and omission that we petition your (A.G’s) office to wake up to the constitutional calling of this position as a State officer and discharge your mandate in a manner that respects, protects and upholds the rule of law, and such related values of public service as high standards of professionalism, responsive, effective, impartial, and equitable provision of services as well as accountability for administrative acts of omission and commission that have become the hallmark of your tenure as the current Attorney  General of Kenya.

 

We further wish to remind the A.G  of the requirements of Chapter Six of the Constitution that demands of all State and public officers that any authority assigned to a State Officer “is a public trust to be exercised in a manner that is consistent with purposes and objects of the Constitution” and brings honour to the nation, dignity to the office and inspires public confidence in the integrity of the office. Such purposes and objects of the Constitution are to be found in Article 10 of the Constitution that speak to the national values and principles of governance such as the rule of law, respect for human rights, accountability to the public, non-discrimination and social justice.

 

The Civil Society Reference Group (CSRG) is a network of Public Benefit Organizations (PBOs within the meaning of the Public Benefit Organizations Act, 2013 whose aim is to promote the establishment and realization of an enabling legal, operational and regulatory environment for local, national and international Public Benefit Organizations (PBOs) based and working in Kenya and the region. The Reference Group is thus committed to a vision of an enabling environment for effective civil society sector in Kenya that promotes ethical standards through self-regulation.CSRG Mission, therefore, is to catalyse collaborative relationships between different levels of Government, the public and other state actors and to protect and enhance an independent and effective civil society voice and agency in the public interest.

 

It is  hoped that the Office of the Attorney General will rediscover and take up its rightful role in the promotion, protection and upholding of the rule of law, and advise the relevant Government ministries on the imperative to obey court orders, and more importantly, move with speed to commence the Public Benefit Organizations Act as was directed by the court on October 31, 2016 and again on May 12, 2017.
