Donald Trump

Trump and Morning Joke

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Trump once called Mika a “neurotic dope,” and now, according to a fresh tweet, he has revealed that she and Scarborough desperately courted him down in Florida for an interview while Mika was recovering from a “face-lift.” The American people know perfectly well that Trump isn’t a saint. They don’t need the media to hold endless powwows on this subject. What’s more, they know that even with his flaws he is a hell of a lot more serious than the smug “sophisticates” always sniping at him.

Mad genius of Trump drives schoolmarms of political press crazy

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The Trump presidency is a little like having a dog. Every day that passes, you love the dog more and more until it seems impossible to love her any more. But — sadly — every day also brings that nagging dread that one day she will be gone, seven times sooner than she should. What will we do when it is all over? There will never be another dog like her (sad face).

Republicans wish Trump would use the Obamacare bully pulpit

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

Through focused, public campaigning, the president could harness that support to ease passage of the healthcare overhaul. In some cases, Trump's influence might create more political support; in others, he might generate pressure that spurs senators to act. Trump has yet to wield the power of the presidency with a speech or vintage Trump campaign rally dedicated to healthcare. His recent campaign-style appearances have been freewheeling affairs, reminiscent of his traveling 2016 road show.

Congressman Warns of Terrorist Attacks If Trump Signs Sanctuary City Bill

Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media

Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) warned that the sanctuary city bill passed in the House of Representatives could cause a terrorist attack to occur in New York City. Espaillat predicted that H.R. 3003 would have a “chilling effect” in local communities if it became law.

Fighting Fire With Fire

The problem with all of this establishment Republican virtue-signaling and the establishment media calls for civility is that they only go one way. Neither before nor after President Trump hit Brzezinski and Scarborough like a ton of bricks did anyone in the establishment call for civility to the President.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats leap headfirst out of bounds with ‘death party’ rhetoric

It may not be the ideal situation to move legislation without input from the other side but Democrats and their “death party” rhetoric makes it necessary. When the simple matter of trying to forge new laws is demonized to such a degree by the opposition it leaves very little choice.

Democrats Cannot Be Trusted With Classified Intelligence

The organized campaign of leaks of classified intelligence coming from former Obama officials are confirming an old Republican criticism that Democrats really hate: "Democrats can't be trusted with national security."

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Agenda-less Democrats’ Russia train heads hopelessly for derailment

It’s only been a little over five months since Donald Trump took office, but thus far he is the one being vindicated by the truth. The Democrats’ Russia train is rolling downhill fast; the brakes are shot and there aren’t any barriers preventing them from hurtling off the tracks.

'Scandal-Free' Obama to Scandal-Plagued Trump

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The same reporters who effortlessly spread the fake news that Obama was "scandal-free" are dedicated to cementing the proposition that Trump is hopelessly scandal-plagued. The same journalists who shamelessly whacked away at Kenneth Starr as a modern knock-off of the inquisitor Torquemada are now presenting Robert Mueller as their latest echo of Eliot Ness. The only thing consistent about the press is their partisanship.

The media will do anything to bash Trump — and now they’re hurting

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

It is remarkable that, if it weren’t for the unproven allegations of Trump collusion, the media would have no interest in the Russia story at all. This despite the fact that leading officials, including both Democrats and Republicans, have called the interference an “act of war.” But it’s a strange war — one that is important only to the extent Trump can be linked to it. Otherwise, who cares?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Did Edgar Allan Poe offer the secret on how to treat the media?

The Founding Fathers counted on an informed citizenry to keep watch over their government. Unfortunately for us the apathetic and antagonistic (to Trump) elements of the populace don’t seem to care about the facts and all too willingly buy-in to the media’s speculation.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ruling class GOP leaders make Obamacare repeal the art of the impossible

Republicans lose track of what’s important when they hear only the voices of those complaining the loudest about what they’ll miss if a bill is passed or if Obamacare is deservedly thrown into the trash bin of history. They better keep their promises and accomplish something.

The Antithesis of Obstruction

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The Russia investigation, to the extent it seeks to understand and guard against Putin’s treachery, is a search for the truth. Trump has not interfered with it; indeed, Comey’s testimony indicates that he encouraged it — acknowledging it would be good to find out if his “satellites” had done something wrong. The collusion narrative, however, is a fraud on the public. It is not obstruction to expose a false narrative.

The American Presidency in Paralysis

Arnold Steinberg, The American Spectator

Let’s make America governable again. At the minimum, Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats should agree to the same rules that his predecessor Harry Reid and his Democrat colleagues applied to process the Obama appointees. If the 2-hour and 8-hour rules were good enough for Barack Obama then, they are good enough for President Donald J. Trump now.

President Trump Has Now Signed 40 Pieces Of Legislation As He Moves To Enact His Agenda

Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller

President Donald Trump continues to sign legislation, an achievement he deemed “nice” Friday. The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and reforms for the Department of Veteran Affairs. Trump said in a tweet Friday that he’s “gotten rid of massive amounts of regulations.” The president is now hoping to sign an Obamacare repeal bill.

Time for Conservatives to Call Talk Radio

It’s time to call talk radio and your Senators.  Tell your Senators and your favorite talk radio show host that they need to get behind the Cruz amendment to the Senate health care bill.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Is the American secession movement really gaining converts?

Given the obstacles we’ve encountered and overcome in the past, doing so again in the 21st century would seem to be eminently achievable. But today the schisms loom so large and the political will to work towards consensus is so weak that the task appears insurmountable.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hate to say it Democrats, but Nancy Pelosi ain’t your (only) problem

We shouldn’t worry about the Democrats gaining ground because they’ll never take any good advice anyway. They’re much too concerned with firing up the radical feminists, race baiters and environmental loons to concern themselves with the deplorables’ point-of-view.

Madness on the Potomac: Trump Administration Joins the Syrian Civil War

During the campaign President Donald Trump had at least one very sensible foreign policy belief: the U.S. should stay out of purposeless wars in the Middle East. Now his appointees are dragging us deeper into the Syrian conflict.
