Putting aside the debate over bogus asylum admissions at our front door, with the recent Supreme Court rulings supporting President Trump’s policies, shouldn’t there be a comprehensive effort to empower and direct ICE to begin deporting as many of these people as possible?

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the fourth-ranking Republican in the Senate, was the only member of GOP leadership to vote for the Democrats' resolution of disapproval intended to block President Trump's emergency declaration. Now the Christian County, Missouri, Republican Central Committee has disinvited Blunt from their annual Lincoln - Trump dinner.

Polls show Trump’s maintained the modest job favorability bump he enjoyed after his SOTU address. If Democrats in Congress and on the campaign trail go to extremes the president won’t need to worry about setting distinctions. Reality is a tall enough hurdle for Democrats to clear.

Like Obama, O’Rourke is an empty vessel who sees himself as a man of destiny, and like Obama he has turned apologizing into an artform, indeed his readiness to apologize for anything and everything was our primary takeaway from his first few days on the campaign trail. Given that, Beto is shaping-up to be the perfect white guilt candidate for a Democrat Party who’s only organizing principle is racial and social animus.

Why should taxpayers, who have to go to the bottom of the dial or the 800s on their cable box to find conservative commentary, gospel music, a show about fishing, or a John Wayne movie be forced to subsidize content that caters to a narrow elite that despises them?

Democrat presidential primary debates should prove fascinating spectacles with each candidate vying for their own slice of party pie. When the dust settles it’s possible no one will command the respect of Democrat voters, placing President Trump in very good position heading into next year.

Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show, “Justice with Judge Jeanine” did not air Saturday on Fox after the Judge, during her March 9 show, questioned whether Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim who wears a hajib, adheres to Shariah law, a set of Muslim laws and doctrines that are antithetical to the Constitution of the United States.

Keeping the focus of his veto message on the facts of the situation on the border was probably the wisest course for the President, but let’s be brutally honest; the reason President Trump was put in this situation was because of the abject failure, or perhaps outright treachery of former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

President Trump’s excellent political instincts were proven correct as he saved his first veto for the crucial immigration issue. Congress’s decades-long stalling on the wall pushed the problem into crisis mode. Trump’s leadership showed Republicans how it’s done -- but will they learn?

Democrats have long opposed the Electoral College because with overwhelming margins of victory in high-population states like California they could dominate future presidential elections based on the popular vote, so they have concocted a plan to try to bypass the constitutional amendment process.

The twelve Republicans who joined the Democrats and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border represent a cross section of the fractured and out-of-touch Capitol Hill Republican Party’s coalition of virtue signaling windbags, constitutional nincompoops and globalist establishment tools.

Debate continues as to the best way to expand the GOP’s “big tent,” but it definitely won’t come through pandering to any specific demographic. Republicans would gain a lot by following President Trump’s example and standing for something and keeping promises. The rest will follow nicely.

    Among Nancy Pelosi’s first moves as Speaker of the House was creating the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, but making the House more transparent—and thus more accountable to voters—got lost somewhere along the way. Political strategists from across the ideological spectrum expressed disappointment with the committee’s early performance. “The entire scope of the purposes of the committee is subject to potential abuse unless its work is done with great transparency,” warned Mark Fitzgibbons.

    Undeniably, atrocities that exceed in bloodshed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre by Al Capone’s gang, where seven men were stood against a wall in a Chicago garage and executed, have become all too common. But the atrocities seized upon by the left as most representative are those that conform to a vision, a narrative, a pre-existing script. This preconceived idea is that America is a hotbed of white nationalism where the worst crimes are committed by white racists. And this is a myth.

  • Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

    Because the Left can’t win in the marketplace of ideas, they are attempting to shut down their critics, to label opponents “fascists” or “white supremacists,” to exercise totalitarian control over public discourse in the same way left-wing professors and student “Antifa” mobs now control university campuses. Tucker Carlson understands this, and his response to the Left’s smear tactics has been to call them out by name and expose them in front of his 3 million viewers. He’s winning, and I’d say this is driving his enemies crazy, but the Left has never been entirely sane.

    In our present day, no sin or shortcoming is so far in the past that a man is entitled to forget about it. In the age of the Internet, where every burp and hiccup is recorded and archived (why no pundit in his right mind would ever run for anything), a candidate can never be sure that one of those burps and hiccups will return from the past to bring him severe heartburn. The man who would be king (or even president) faces the hard reality that there’s no statute of limitations. In a reasonable world there would be, but none of us lives there.

    An armed citizenry is a true backstop to tyranny, an obstacle to total control over society by a small elite that seeks unbridled power. Will we ever have to use it? We hope not, but think of it as a fire extinguisher for fascism--better to have it lying around than not to have it when you need it. If the left wants chaos, an attempt to disarm us is the way to get it. We will never back down from our absolute and Creator-given right to defend our lives and freedom because disarmed, we stop being free citizens and become neutered serfs.

    Imagine that. Mogul sends deeply private texts to gossipy L.A. girlfriend who has gossipy, fame-hungry brother, and somehow it gets out! No Saudis required. It is not unusual for men caught sexting with women not their wives to claim they have been hacked, or that their texts have somehow been stolen. Remember that Anthony Weiner tried the same thing. But few have the resources of Jeff Bezos, and few could rely on so many media commentators to spread the story. The real Bezos story is an old story, of people acting foolishly in the course of an extramarital affair.

    Pirro found herself in curious hot water for asking a legitimate question about Ilhan Omar: "Is [Omar's] adherence to Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?" A recent conversation I had with my new Muslim friend – coincidentally on a visit to the Fox News studios – affirms that there is no inconsistency in what Judge Jeanine asked. He said, “So many Americans complain, but they don’t know how lucky they are,” referring to God’s blessings.

    Market forces can’t be evaded by socialism any more than the laws of physics can be eluded by a perpetual motion machine. There is no evidence that any attempt to do so has ever succeeded in either case. The belief that it is possible to successfully replace capitalism with socialism requires blind faith that can’t be justified by experience or theory. It is merely leftist dogma, and it has failed to learn any new tricks in the last two centuries. A trip to Venezuela will confirm this. By all means, share your findings when you return… if you live.

    Google is, I would imagine, weirdly much like the government of Iran. The mullahs don't really believe all the 12th imam nonsense (I mean, who could?) but they espouse it for the masses in order to maintain their power over them. Google and the social media companies—and, of course, the Democratic Party—have to proclaim the imminent civilizational danger of climate change to keep their own masses in line. After a while, however, if you keep on reciting the same palaver, you begin to believe it yourself.

  • Stephen Moore, Washington Times

    Add it all up and the estimated 10-year cost of creating the Democratic-socialist utopia envisioned by the likes of AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders and other leaders of the Democratic Party reaches well north of $100 trillion. The Democrats balked at spending $5.7 billion to protect American communities by securing the border, but they’re perfectly happy to mortgage our future by spending nearly 20,000 times that amount on their own utopian fantasies. We will all have everything we want, and our country will be bankrupt.

    Actress Debra Messing apologized to her "trans sisters" for posting on Instagram a picture of cupcakes with images of vaginas, some with apparent piercings, some with chocolate sprinkles that suggested pubic hair. "Happy International Women's Day," she wrote. "Powerful, beautiful and sweet." "I did not, however, think 'but there are innumerable beautiful, unique and powerful women who don't have a vagina.' And I SHOULD have. And for that I am so so sorry." She was not alone. Another notable "woke" actress, Alyssa Milano, stepped in.

    The logical endpoint of Big Tech’s free rein is far more troubling than conservative meme warriors losing their Twitter accounts. There is no conservative principle that even remotely suggests we are obligated to adopt a laissez-faire attitude while the richest companies on earth abuse the power we give them to put a thumb on the scale for our political enemies. If anything, our love of the free market dictates that we must do whatever is necessary to ensure that the free marketplace of ideas remains open to all.

    Failure to stop the flow of illegal aliens guarantees that disputes over what to do about those already in America will divide our nation for another generation at least. The net effect of inaction is that the far-left radicals who believe compassion requires America to have virtually open borders are winning. They demonize all restrictions as racist and xenophobic, and will never be satisfied until all distinctions between legal and illegal immigrants are erased. Nobody should be fooled into thinking we are anywhere near a solution to the immigration crisis.

    Hollywood is rampant with excessive public moral posturing, which disguises often equally excessive private amorality or even immorality. The biggest liberal or progressive stars are frequently the most avaricious and nasty people in their personal lives.  It’s a form of split personality cum self-hypnosis that has been employed successfully by the entertainment industry for some time, but the college admissions scandal is bringing it unpleasantly to the surface, as did the recent #MeToo controversy.

    President Trump had a good first two years where the economy is concerned, and deserves the country's gratitude. But the failure of large corporations to increase productivity-enhancing investment will contribute to a much slower rate of growth in 2019. I support the president and I want him to succeed, but I don't think the tools he has chosen will get the results he wants. On the contrary, the trade war is hurting the U.S. economy, and serves as a distraction from the greater tech war, which isn't going well.
