Donald Trump

Congress Must #ReadTheDeal Before Voting

A 14-day continuing resolution would allow the House to go on their scheduled district work period and return to D.C. with a full week to work through amendments that will be needed by the Senate and White House to get the bill passed and signed into law.

Assault on America, Day 43: GOP leaders’ wimp out on border wall leaves few options for Trump

Short on options, it’s said Trump will sign the bad deal sent him by his party leaders on Capitol Hill. If the president hopes to get a barrier constructed, he’ll need to do so by other means. It just goes to show, once again, the GOP leadership simply can’t be trusted. Don’t go there anymore.

Political Journalists Are Trying To Gaslight America

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

Trump says a lot of things, like claiming Mexico will pay for the border wall, and every reporter treats his political statements as if they are chiseled into a stone. They mock those who argue that Trump should be taken seriously, not literally. Yet Ocasio-Cortez can send out a FAQ and alleged journalists will claim that it never existed because it wasn’t part of a congressional bill. In reality, Ocasio-Cortez never walked the ideas back. Instead, it seems there was a move from rank bias to amateur gaslighting.

Capitol Hill GOP Caves On Border Wall Deal

President Trump may be on to the Republicans’ lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he panned the deal yesterday during a cabinet meeting and said, “I’m adding things to it.” It is clear to us where the problem lies in getting the Wall funded and built – with Capitol Hill Republicans where it has always been.

Assault on America, Day 42: Who gave the media sanction to bash on Trump’s ‘Executive Time’?

The establishment news media’s worked overtime to portray Trump in every possible negative light and now they’re trashing his schedule because it contains too little priority for meetings and other official functions. Where journalists are concerned, if it weren’t for bad news there’d be no news at all.

Christians Bet on Trump and Won

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

In 2016, critics of Trump warned his Christians supporters that as president he would revert to his secularist New York roots. He hasn’t. The confidence the religious right placed in him has been largely vindicated. He has turned out to be the most reliable defender of religious freedom since Ronald Reagan. The secularist forces continue to gather strength around the country, but Trump has undeniably bought Christians some time. They needed a Constantine and he emerged as one.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Assault on America, Day 41: Do Dem leaders love fanatics enough to sacrifice everything?

Politics doesn’t need to be as complicated as today’s Republicans and Democrats make it out to be. The representative republic our constitution lays out should function to do the will of the people. President Trump is trying to do his part… will Democrat leaders stop the obstruction?

The Democrats’ disastrous week highlights Trump’s sanity

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

If you are of the mind that President Trump is to blame for everything wrong and wacky in our politics, then last week was a very bad week for you. The evidence begins with Trump’s very good State of the Union speech, where he was alternately conciliatory toward Democrats and ruthless in contrasting his policies with theirs. Reckless in their rhetoric and resistance, Dems make themselves vulnerable to charges that they support open borders, socialism and infanticide.

Trump's Address Meets Late-Night Resistance

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When you're the Resistance, the counterarguments don't have to have internal logic, and they certainly don't have to be funny. They just need to be loaded with passionate fear and loathing. The cultural elite offers a perpetual geyser of hate. Hollywood would like America to believe it reflects our nation's pulse. Well, 76 percent of Americans approved of this speech by the second- or third-grader who's destroying our economy as a pawn of Russia because he wants to kill pregnant women.

Assault on America, Day 40: Look out! AOC and the Green New Deal socialists are coming!

The Founding Fathers never envisioned a government so powerful so as to control every aspect of citizens’ lives, but that’s what’s in store if the new breed of Democrat socialists succeed in enacting a “Green New Deal” someday. Their mindset is not only dangerous, it’s proliferating.

Trump Finds the Formula to Defeat Democrats in 2020

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If the pollsters at CNN and CBS are correct, Donald Trump may have found the formula for winning a second term in 2020. His State of the Union address, say the two networks, met with the approval of 76 percent of all viewers — 97 percent of Republicans, 82 percent of independents and 30 percent of Democrats. Seventy-two percent agreed with the president's plans for securing the border with Mexico. Trump was not only unapologetic in defense of his wall. He seemed to relish savaging the rising radicalism of Democrats on two critical issues many Democrats have, since their 2018 triumph, seized upon: abortion on demand, right up to the day of birth, and soak-the-rich socialism.

Why Trump's War on Socialism Is More Necessary Than Ever

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Forget entertainment and the media, as biased as they are, if we let Marxist theory dominate our educational system much longer, we will be a socialist state by fiat.  AOC will be elected president by proclamation as soon as she is of age, if not before.  We will have had a revolution without a shot being fired. By making resistance to socialism a lynch pin of his 2020 campaign, Trump will be helping to right this extremely dangerous situation, giving cover to students being indoctrinated in our classrooms and to their increasingly alarmed parents.

The Fauxcahontas Apology Tour

Senator Elizabeth Warren’s early dive into identity politics and racial preferences in hiring has guaranteed that her 2020 presidential campaign will become an agonizing genealogy project and provide another example of Trump’s awesome power to make Democrats do dumb stuff.

Assault on America, Day 37: Every four years people talk 3rd party… will it happen this time?

It doesn’t take placing an ear to the ground to claim Trump’s potentially vulnerable (especially if the wall isn’t built) and there’s something amiss down below. It’s premature to view Howard Schultz as a true challenger to the two parties, but it wouldn’t be a stretch to see him try.

Trump shows he’s playing to win with bold State of the Union address

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The state of the union is frighteningly divided and hostile, but the state of the president’s aim is sound. For all the talk of chaos and churn in his administration, Donald Trump knows what he’s about. As he always has, he’s playing to win. True to White House billing, the president was conciliatory at times and urged national unity in the face of domestic and international threats. Perhaps he was even sincere in those wishes, but on virtually all the big issues dividing America, Trump took bold and resolute stances that left little room to the imagination and even less wiggle room.

Trump Report Card: State of the Union Address 2019

Our friend David Franke shares President Donald Trump's report card for a class in Political Performance 101—an elective in both the theater/performance art department and the political science department of Franke University. Understood in this way, Prof. Franke gave President Trump a grade of A+.

Assault on America, Day 36: Dems’ abhorrent SOTU manners cast Trump in presidential light

Democrats exposed a window into their souls the other night, unable or unwilling to greet President Trump’s pro-American message and calls for unity with anything other than skulks and sneers. Americans hoping for political progress won’t take the Democrats’ behavioral excesses lightly.

Trump goes big, uses delayed State of the Union to make case on border, much more

Byron York, Washington Examiner

How did the public respond to it all? Quickie polls by CBS and CNN showed broad approval of Trump's message. It seems likely Trump helped himself on Tuesday night. He delivered a big, broad, far-ranging statement of his approach to the presidency and to the country. It was a deeply American appeal — he said the word "America" or "American" a total of 76 times in the speech. And there is a reasonable chance a lot of Americans liked it.

Trump, like Apple, has smashed the status quo

John Feehery, The Hill

The reason the media doesn’t give the president any credit for any of his accomplishments is pretty simple. They are an integral part of the establishment that Trump is threatening to destroy. They are the ones that have the most to lose, should the president prove to be successful. They are the ones that go tsk tsk when a politician says something that they find to be offensive, and they are the ones that assemble the social media mob to instill discipline upon those who don’t toe the liberal line.  Trump doesn’t play by their rules. He plays by his own rules.
