Republicans and Donald Trump aren’t the only ones who have relationships to repair. The media will blow any potential intraparty GOP differences way out of proportion. A year after President Trump was inaugurated the establishment is on the run and the party is largely unified.

What drives Senator Flake’s animus toward President Trump is not a love of constitutional liberty – it is that the American people, in their righteous indignation over the abuses they have suffered for the past several decades, have finally withdrawn their consent to the kind of government that was being imposed upon them by the establishment political parties, and their allies among the media and cultural elite.

President Donald J. Trump, will address the 45th annual March for Life live from the White House Rose Garden via satellite on January 19th, 2018. President Trump will be the first sitting U.S. president in the March for Life’s 45-year history to address the event via satellite from the White House.

Americans are compassionate but they’re not stupid; there may be a need to compromise on immigration but it must be a two-way street. Democrats who believe they’ll win the political battle over a government shutdown are sorely mistaken -- thankfully they won’t realize it until November.

National security dangers aren’t just in the eye of the beholder; some threats are by nature easier to spot – and deal with. Wise people on both sides of the climate change issue can’t even agree on whether it exists much less the risk warmer temperatures might represent to American interests.

The SPLC is a dangerous organization, guilty of the hate it claims to fight. The fact is the SPLC would just be another run of the mill leftist outfit if it didn’t have such close ties with our government. Those ties need to be thoroughly investigated by the Congressional Homeland Security Committee and then severed immediately.

Extending DACA or passing a larger amnesty bill before we build the promised border wall, before we take other actions to improve border security, before we beef up internal enforcement of our immigration laws, and before we remove the incentives to come and stay in America illegally would be a colossal mistake.

Considering his record on “values” Mitt Romney arrogantly setting himself up as the arbiter of “American values” leaves us stuck someplace between amusement and disgust, so we thought in our second #NeverMitt article we should look at the real Mitt Romney, and his record on one of America's foundational values.

There’s no doubt about it, the left is using Trump’s colorful use of language and “behavior” to distract from the progress he’s achieved in making America great again. The former president’s demeanor may have been more to the liberals’ liking -- but it’s not his show to run anymore.

    Although Trump’s commitment to the pro-life cause has previously been doubted by many pro-lifers, he has made the right choice here in safeguarding government respect for the moral judgment of medical professionals. As today’s marchers exercise their First Amendment rights, they can take heart in that, at least.

  • Scott McKay, The American Spectator

    With Trump in the White House you won’t have national monuments shut down or military payroll not met; he’s going to define “essential” functions of the government differently than Obama did. In fact, most Americans probably wouldn’t notice a government shutdown at all. But the ones who will probably won’t like the thought that it’s happening out of homage to illegal aliens at their expense. And they might like it even less if they believe Durbin trumped up a lie as a smokescreen for the whole thing.

    A federal judge in Alabama ruled Alabama’s ID law for both in-person and absentee voting is constitutional and does not violate the Voting Rights Act. Alabama thus joins more than a dozen states that have implemented sensible, nondiscriminatory voter ID requirements—requirements that have been upheld in the courts in almost every state with only a few exceptions.

    Today, five companies — Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Alphabet (Google’s parent company) — have a collective worth of more than $3 trillion. Yet such transnational companies remain mostly exempt from the sort of regulations and accountability faced by most other industries. Politicians are understandably afraid of turning a golden goose into a sick hen. Without taxable trillion-dollar revenues from Facebook, Google, and Apple, a dysfunctional, cash-strapped California would likely go broke. The result is that high tech has become is a brilliant chameleon — invisible in plain sight.

    In the six-year Syrian civil war, which may be about to enter a new phase, America faces a familiar situation. While our “allies” and adversaries have vital interests there, we do not. The Assads have been in power for the lifetime of most Americans. And we have never shown a desire to fight in Syria. Have the generals taking us into Syria told the president how and when, if ever, they plan to get us out?

    If the Democrats decide to shut down the government over DACA, awesome. Go out and make the case that, in addition to all the other inconveniences, injuries, and expenses Americans have borne as a result of people disrespecting our laws and coming here illegally, we now have to shut down our government because of them too. Sounds like a well thought-out plan. Go ahead, Dems. Give it a try. There’s no way Trump is going to humiliate you again. Sure, you tell yourselves that every time you go up against him, but hey, you gotta win sometime.

    Journalists often talk about President Trump's "war on the media" and can't possibly discuss the media's war on President Trump. When the president attacks the media, that's an attack on democracy. When the media undermine the president, that's the full flowering of democracy. Removing the statements made by Trump and other politicians, 90 percent of evening-news Trump evaluations were negative, and only 10 percent were positive.

    Our scorch-in-chief, being constantly under attack for matters large and small, almost always fights back in the grand tradition of all scorches. Called a racist ad infinitum, he struck back the other day with some interesting facts on that greatest of playing fields for the modern scorch -- Twitter. "Unemployment for Black Americans is the lowest ever recorded. Trump approval ratings with Black Americans has doubled. Thank you, and it will get even (much) better!"

  • Senator Mike Lee, Washington Examiner

    The alternative system would be one of transparency, decentralization, and accountability. Representatives and senators would write legislation collaboratively, in the open, forging popular compromises and taking tough votes. Anytime someone says, “What we really need to do is get everyone in a room to hammer out the details,” remember, the Constitution provides for two such rooms: the House and Senate chambers. The reason Congress doesn’t work today is that both party establishments are afraid of the electoral consequences of the public actually seeing a free-wheeling debate they can’t control.

  • Ben Shapiro, National Review

    None of this excuses Trump’s idiotic and obscene statements. And none of it means that the media are wrong to criticize those statements. But applying the “racist” tag to Trump as a human being isn’t journalism. It’s laziness and opportunism masquerading as bravery. And it only alienates Americans who would prefer to analyze events and statements with clear eyes, rather than through the prism of Trump’s supposed bigotry.

  • R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

    Last week the headlines should have abounded with the year’s good news. Instead the headlines—and the cable news stories — abounded with a private remark made by our President — or perhaps not made by our President; he denies making it. I am not particularly disturbed by our passionate and earthy 45th President’s resort to salty language in discussing what kinds of immigration legislation are desirable for the United States. Though I think there are more important issues to discuss and even celebrate. As I have said, how about that economy!

    The pipe dream of using “incapacity” via the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove Mr. Trump, came to a crashing halt this week courtesy of Dr. Ronny Jackson, former President Barack Obama’s doctor. Well, he’s the White House physician, but was appointed by Mr. Obama in 2013. On Tuesday, Dr. Jackson ruined the hopes and dreams of liberal “reporters” and Democrats everywhere by simply telling the truth in an unusual press conference on Tuesday detailing the results of Mr. Trump’s yearly physical exam.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    It is much easier to point to President Trump's crude comments on immigration than it is to handle the truth, which is that his opponents want an argument rather than action. In an election year, immigration is far more powerful for Democrats as a political issue than it is as an accomplishment in the rearview mirror. They know this just as they have always known it, and so they're digging in their heels and throwing obstacles in the way of a solution.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    The Democrats still don’t understand that appeal, and this controversy, for which tattle-tales like Durbin congratulate themselves so giddily, will only enhance it once the superficial chatter and easy outrage have passed. The American people can forgive an obscenity from a president who is fighting battles others are too cowardly to confront. What they won’t forgive is a party that preened about “s***holes” while America turned into one.

    Mass immigration means an America in 2050 with no core majority, made up of minorities of every race, color, religion and culture on earth, a continent-wide replica of the wonderful diversity we see today in the U.N. General Assembly. Such a country has never existed before. Are we on the Yellow Brick Road to the new Utopia — or on the path to national suicide?
