Should Democrats kill the Trump proposal – as we believe they will – the President should feel empowered to begin to explore executive action to address the national security crisis at our southern border – including using the military to construct an effective border wall.

As Anabelle Lima-Taub is quickly learning, politics in America is rapidly becoming a Sharia-compliant jurisdiction where any criticism of Islam or Muslims is considered blasphemy and makes one subject to the political death penalty, if not – as the Koran demands – the literal death penalty.

Donald Trump was elected president precisely because he understood what the people wanted -- and promised to give it to them. If this makes him a “populist,” it’s a mantle he’ll wear proudly. Democrats pledge free stuff, Trump offers prosperity and security. What will Americans choose in 2020?

Can you imagine the late President George H.W. Bush, former President George W. Bush, the late John McCain or failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney sending that letter to Nancy Pelosi? What conservatives of all stripes having been waiting for for decades is a leader who will fight the Uniparty consensus in Washington, and Donald Trump has proven to be that leader.

The charge of not being a “team player” is what the Republican establishment uses to justify doing political damage to a conservative in the hope that the conservative will either be brought to heel, or, better yet, defeated in the next election.

If you only saw the political elites you might think the State of our Union really isn’t strong. Under current leadership it’s okay to cancel national assemblies for pathetic personal vendettas and cheap political points, but the American people aren’t fools -- they want border security.

Over one hundred thousand Americans are set to travel from across the country to our nation’s capital for this year’s March for Life, the largest annual pro-life demonstration in the world. This year’s theme, “Unique from Day One: Pro-life is Pro-science” focuses on how scientific advancements reveal the humanity of the unborn child from the moment of conception.

Our friend Elaine Donnelly, founder and president of the Center for Military Readiness, gave us the heads-up that Marine Corps Commandant General Robert B. Neller quietly announced on a Friday afternoon that for the first time in history, a platoon of fifty enlisted female recruits would be housed and trained alongside five male platoons.

No amount of excuses RINOs like John Kasich or liberal Democrats make will change the facts on the border -- or anything else of consequence in today’s America. Republican and conservative policies work if they’re tried, something not possible with the DC swamp mentality.

A new poll from Rasmussen Reports confirms the damage done by the Obama-era abuses by the FBI and other intelligence agencies and gives further evidence that Americans are on the side of investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson and others who are trying to rip the veil of secrecy off Obama’s domestic spying operations.

The elephant in the room – and the motivation for liberals fighting so hard against including the citizenship question on the census – is that it will re-open the debate over whether electoral seats should be apportioned according to the population of citizens rather than the total population.

The current impasse between congressional Democrats and President Trump was years in the making, primarily because GOP leaders of the recent past didn’t act to resolve it when they had the chance. If Trump gives in now we should only expect the cycle to repeat over and over again.

    Journalism, as a profession, does not exist. An example of how far the bias has gone in our time is, as someone noted on Twitter, that not a single media outlet dared to question the BuzzFeed report until the Mueller investigation itself spoke up. We know — oh, how we know — not to trust any so-called information coming out these days. Trust but verify is no longer operative. Verify first. Then do it again. And again. And again. Ad nauseam. And only then, if you must, trust.

  • Roger Kimball, American Greatness

    The Democrats obviously believe that because of the government shutdown, they hold a winning hand of cards. I think they are completely mistaken. The president has shown both that he is willing to compromise in good faith and also that he is willing to inflict serious pain on the Democrats should they refuse to meet him halfway. It would be a good thing for us all if Democrats stopped acting like petulant children and started taking the commonweal of the country to heart, instead of performing for their dwindling and disgusted constituency.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    It is not healthy that a prosecutor has become like a divine oracle, with the nation’s mood hanging on first his silence, then his statement. Mueller is not exempt from the laws of common sense and fairness. When it comes to Trump, he must fish or cut bait. After nearly two years of investigating, on top of a 10-month FBI probe he inherited, Mueller needs to show his cards. The country cannot continue to thrash about with uncertainty over events that took place three years ago. The void is being filled with partisan trash and dangerous discord.

    For grins, try to imagine Gillette marketing its Venus line of razors to women in this way. Imagine the reaction if these geniuses were to run an ad against "toxic femininity," saying the time is over for women gossiping and bullying women. NPR would go into spasmodic convulsions. The bra burners would take to the streets. Women are presumed to be the victimized gender — oppressed by men (yuk!), not poisoned by testosterone. There's a word for these ad campaigns: vomit.

  • Thomas Sowell, Investor's Business Daily

    In this era when there has been more information available to more people than at any time in the past, it is also true that there has been more misinformation from more different sources than ever. We are not talking about differences of opinion or inadequate verification, but about statements and catchwords in utter defiance of facts. Issues in both economics and science can get complicated. But when one side of those issues has to resort to demonstrably false catchwords, that should give us a clue.

  • Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

    There were more than 17,000 homicides in the United States in 2017, and the reported number of transgender victims was a minuscule fraction of a single percentage point of those murders. Of course, we must keep in mind the fact that the reported number of transgender homicides has actually decreased since Trump became president, but also note that the national media didn’t bother paying attention to such crimes until after he was elected. Unfortunately for the climate-of-hate theorists, the facts get in the way.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Pelosi occupies not the moral high ground but Washington’s decades-long swamp in which pols neglected the security and stability of their countrymen for the sake of future votes and cheap labor from foreigners. It took Trump to confront this crisis once and for all so that government can even continue. A much more profound “government shutdown” preceded this temporary one, which was the bipartisan refusal to close the border, a policy Trump correctly sees as poisonous to the nation’s very survival.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    People, not polls, elect presidents. Presidents run for reelection against real opponents, not public perceptions. For all the media hype, voters often pick the lesser of two evils, not their ideals of a perfect candidate. We have no idea what the economy or the world abroad will be like in 2020. And no one knows what the country will think of the newly Democrat-controlled Congress in two years. Whether or not they like Trump, millions of voters still think the president is all that stands between them and socialism, radical cultural transformation, and social chaos.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Being a man does not mean being a sad, hairy, lumpy version of a women. Nor does being a woman mean being a smaller, baby-having man. Being your gender is part of who you are, and by erasing that they seek to change you from who you are into who they want you to be: A neutered drone. And “toxic femininity” is next on their target list. “Toxic masculinity” is not about criminality or being a jerk. It’s about the basic premise of being a man, the role of builder and destroyer, engineer and warrior.

  • Tony Perkins, CNS News

    From Obama's abortion surcharge to the contraception mandate, Americans are more involved than ever in the procedure that so many oppose. Young or old, Republican or moderate, they agree: there's absolutely no reason that taxpayers should be on the hook for a dangerous, deadly, and almost always elective procedure. Now, with hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers en route to Washington, D.C., House and Senate pro-lifers want them to know they're doing what they can to make the bucks stop here.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

    America is now burdened with the duty to defend Europe from the Atlantic to the Baltic, even as we face a far greater threat in China, with an economy and population 10 times that of Russia. And we must do this with a defense budget that is not half the share of the federal budget or the GDP that Eisenhower and Kennedy had. Halfway into Trump's term, the question is whether he is going to just talk about halting Cold War II with Russia, about demanding that Europe pay for its own defense, and about bringing the troops home — or whether he is going to act upon his convictions.

  • Betsy McCaughey, New York Post

    Democrats have to decide whether they're the party of capitalism or confiscation. Some Dems are pledging to soak the rich and others are catering to them. Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey of New York is pushing to restore full tax deductibility of state and local taxes, benefitting her well-heeled constituents. In the midterms, Democrats swept the 10 richest congressional districts in the nation. It's becoming the party of the ultra-rich and the very poor. "Medicare-for-all" offers nothing for the vast middle -- the working people.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer might as well face it. President Trump has spent most of his life negotiating with real estate developers, unionized construction companies, and New York zoning officials. He comes from a business environment that makes the Beltway look like a chapter of Habitat for Humanity. So, to put it bluntly, they have already lost. Trump has them in a deep hole, chained to the wall, and is busy with brick and mortar cutting off their only source of political oxygen. The country is with him on this and he knows it. Border security “trumps” bureaucratic comfort.

  • Vice President Mike Pence, USA Today

    The American people deserve to know: Democrats refuse to negotiate on building the wall. Even as we face a crisis on our southern border, and as 800,000 federal workers go without paychecks, Democrats in Congress have been unwilling to seriously discuss even partial wall funding. President Trump and our administration will not be deterred by the Democrats' obstruction. The American people want to see action, and we intend to deliver. It’s time for Democrats in Congress to do their job, negotiate in good faith, and reach an agreement.

    To be sure, it's the media's mission to elect a Democrat every four years, but in 2016, the mission was of existential proportions — and they failed. It wasn't because they were on his side; it was because he beat them. For Frank Bruni to suggest the opposite — that the media were Trump's accomplices — is truly bizarre, even for Frank Bruni. Does he not remember his own newspaper publishing a front-page editorial in which it insisted President Trump has to be defeated by the media?
