With Trump’s Executive Orders Held Up In Court Over 8,400 Refugees Have Come To The U.S.

Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller

Due to troubles in court, President Trump has not been able to effectively carry out his campaign promise to stop refugee resettlement. Since he took office, 8,476 refugees have been resettled in the U.S., according to the Refugee Processing Center. More specifically, 1,131 Syrian refugees have resettled in the country during this time. This is nearly three times the number of Syrian refugees, 395, that were resettled in the same period last year under President Obama.

Like Andrew Jackson, Donald Trump is an intensely American president

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

As his administration continues to grow and change, I suspect President Trump will continue to be a disruptive force in Washington on behalf of normal Americans. And his presidency will be every bit as historic as President Jackson’s.

The Reason For President Trump’s Approval Problem

There are many issues plumbed in these polls, but what comes through loud and clear is that, by hitching his popularity to Paul Ryan and Ryancare, President Trump has suffered a devastating drop in approval among the staunchest of his core constituents.

Midnight Rules Meeting Sets The Stage For Friday Obamacare Vote

Conservatives are getting next to nothing in the #Ryancare bill. It’s time for conservatives and for President Trump to take his own deal making advice and walk away from this disaster – there are better deals available and the price of giving illegal aliens taxpayer subsidized health care is way too high. We urge CHQ readers to contact House Freedom Caucus members to urge them to stand tall against bullying from establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan.

We're protecting jobs and the environment

Scott Pruitt, USA Today

The Trump administration is going to do things differently. That includes a more transparent EPA. Americans can have both a clean and healthy environment and good paying manufacturing jobs. America is going to create jobs and grow the economy while at the same time be good stewards to our natural resources.

Does Europe Treasure NATO Again?

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Ironically, Trump’s herky-jerky warnings about redefining strategic missions and meeting required contributions may jolt the alliance into reform—in a way that past American presidents’ mellifluous but empty rhetoric about the fissures within and the contradictions of NATO seem to have only made things worse.

On #Ryancare Paul Ryan = Harry Reid

The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.

Trump-obsessed media pay no attention to the man holding the political puppet strings

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Comey’s pursuit of Mr. Trump during a presidential election is one of two things. Either it is a politically charged investigation launched by one sitting president into his greatest political enemy as that enemy tries winning the White House. Or it is Watergate — ten thousandfold.

Trump will travel to Brussels for first NATO meeting in May

Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner

"The President looks forward to meeting with his NATO counterparts to reaffirm our strong commitment to NATO, and to discuss issues critical to the alliance, especially allied responsibility-sharing and NATO's role in the fight against terrorism," the White House Office of the Press Secretary said in a statement.

The Deal Breaker In #Ryancare

Much as we’d like President Trump to succeed, providing subsidized health care to illegal aliens is too steep a price for conservatives to pay to support the President in his optimistic push to use Speaker Paul Ryan’s disastrous Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or #Ryancare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Another Reason To Impeach Anti-Trump Judge Theodore Chuang

The Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution’s Due Process Clause to require judges to act impartially and with the appearance of impartiality. The conduct of Judge Chuang raises serious questions about his impartiality. We urge Congress to hold hearings on Judge Chuang's impeachment at its earliest opportunity.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are Right About #RyanCare

The only parts of Obamacare establishment Republicans want to repeal are the parts in the current House bill, they are perfectly happy to keep the regulations and other Big Government parts of Obamacare and have no intention of establishing a free market health care and health care insurance system.

Yes, Obama Did Investigate Trump

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

If the Republicans had a real counterpart to Schiff, they would have loudly pointed out that Comey’s mere confirmation of an investigation vindicates the thrust of Trump’s tweets. They could have spent the hearing drawing out the implications of that admission. No matter how the Dems and the media spin it, no matter how many semantic games they play, Obama authorized a multi-agency investigation into a political opponent, which necessarily involved violations of that opponent’s privacy.

Will Russiagate backfire?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If the investigation of Russiagate turns up no link between Trump and the pilfered emails, Democrats will have egg all over their faces. And the Democratic base will have to face a painful truth. Vladimir Putin did not steal this election. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama lost it. Donald Trump won it fair and square. He is not an “illegitimate” president.

The Nothing Burger Gets Flipped

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

Democratic representative after Democratic representative used his or her time not so much to ask questions but to deliver little sermons on the perfidy of Donald Trump and various people associated with his campaign or administration (Rex Tillerson, Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Carter Page, et al.).
