“We will urge our Representatives [in the United States House of Representatives] to impeach, and for the Senate to try, convict, and remove [Federal District] Judge James Robart in Washington and [Federal District] Judge Leonie Brinkema in Virginia,” The Spirit of America Rally organizer Mark Skoda told our friends at the TennesseeStar.com.

“I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East,” said Senator Paul. In this, and many other things about McCain, Senator Paul is right.

Forget about impeaching Trump – the Democrats want him incapacitated and removed. Plus, Trump’s presidential behavior is unusual, but he’s right; he’s an accomplishment machine, and, Pruitt confirmed for EPA, readies to move the agency back to its original mission.

Why does President Trump’s adversarial relationship with the establishment media seem to help him sell himself and his agenda? What could be better than getting your enemies in the media to provide you with a live broadcast documenting your beatdown of them.

The need for “extreme vetting” of supposed “refugees” from failed states and terrorist hotspots is demonstrated almost daily in the media, should Judges like Leonie Brinkema and James L. Robart choose to take judicial notice of such news reports. A particularly frightening example was recently revealed during the trial in Sweden of an asylum-seeking war criminal.

Just like with the campaign, when Trump ignores the media noise and sticks to the issues, he can’t lose. Plus, Mulvaney’s confirmation to head the OMB only the beginning of budget battles to come, and, Trump announces new nominee for Labor Secretary, media notices he’s brown.

    Contrary to the whining of Jake Tapper at CNN, last week’s press conference was not a distraction from his governance but an essential component of it. He recognizes that his agenda can only move forward if the people tune out the media’s distortions of it. Were Trump to take the media’s advice, he couldn’t govern. The more he neutralizes the media, the more successful he will be.

    Perhaps the most breathtaking element in these new guidelines is that illegals captured at the border will no longer be released into the U.S. to await a hearing before an immigration judge. Most will be turned around and sent back to Mexico. With the increased monitoring and surveillance at the border, the number of illegals being able to settle in the interior of the U.S. will be drastically reduced.

    As with virtually anyone on the left, journalists treat Planned Parenthood as the most sacred of cows. In the last few weeks, from the women's marches through the March for Life and other protests of Planned Parenthood, none of the networks will investigate or even cover the activities of these merchants of death.

  • Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., The Wall Street Journal

    Mr. Trump is an unusual president in that, unlike any we can think of, he speaks only for himself. There is no army of Trump interest groups and loyalists and activists to respond to his command or suggestion. He does not have deep knowledge of policy, government or politics. He does not have longtime organizational ties.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    A number of policies would boost job creation while moving power away from Washington. Ex-Im shuffles money around the economy while empowering Beltway insiders to take a cut. Trump's K Street and Wall Street friends will push him to do what Clinton wanted to do. He ought to instead to think bigger and push through sweeping structural changes that will lift the whole economy and the whole country, not businesses selected politically to be winners.

  • Joseph Curl, Washington Times

    After last week's Trump press conference, the press bristled at charges from the new president that they are selling fake news — and immediately goes out and proves his point. Just when you thought Washington couldn’t get any weirder.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Under the framework of the founders, the people are masters, not servants, and the IRS holds no bondage on their freedoms. Congress must at long last investigate fully the IRS’s out-of-control investigators. Instead of wasting time on the fashions of the moment, Congress should deliver to the forgotten the protection that the Constitution promises them.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    Chic Trump hatred and sick talks of coups — or worse — hinge on economic growth. If Trump’s agenda hits 3 percent GDP growth or above by 2018, then his critics — progressive shock troops, Democratic grandees, mainstream media, Never Trump Republicans — will either shift strategies or face prolonged irrelevance. But for now, ending Trump one way or another is apparently the tortured pathway his critics are taking to exit their self-created labyrinth of irrelevance.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Believing Putin robbed Hillary Clinton of the presidency, Democrats are bent on revenge—on Putin and Trump. And the epidemic of Russophobia makes it almost impossible to pursue normal relations. Indeed, in reaction to the constant attacks on them as poodles of Putin, the White House seems to be toughening up toward Russia.

  • Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

    Gorsuch's hearings have been set to begin March 20. The plan is for the nomination to be submitted to the full Senate in early April where it appears likely that he will surpass the needed 60 votes to avoid a parliamentary maneuver to get him to the court. Insiders said the goal is a vote before the Easter recess which begins on April 7, two days before Palm Sunday.

    Rogue congressional staffers took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives’ computer network, according to court documents examined by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

    Nashville’s Morning News host Ralph Bristol told his listening audience on Monday that his speech to the March 4 Spirit of America rally will focus on an honest portrayal of American citizens who support President Donald Trump. “I’m going to use this occasion to speak to Trump’s detractors, in the media, and on the opposite side of the issues that have people so upset, about the people who are attending the rally. I’m not going to speak to the people at the rally, I’m going to speak about them,” Bristol said.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    Trump is serving notice that he, and not the media, sets the nation’s agenda. And that when journalists behave like opponents, he will treat them like opponents, punching back harder than they punch him.

  • Caitlin Yilek, Washington Examiner

    Limbaugh claimed the media have a "blueprint for destroying" Republicans they disagree with, but they won't take Trump down. "He doesn't fit that mold. They're trying to every day. It's kind of comical to watch," he said referring to the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS and NBC, among others.

    The Obama list is quite long, and that is not surprising. Obama was a socialist and socialists of all stripes have a long record of suppressing freedom of the press, subordinating its expression to the interests of an all-powerful state and its dictator. McCain found nothing wrong with that when Obama was playing that game and undercutting the press in what seemed to be pretty oppressive and downright illegal behavior.
