Donald Trump

DNC on Verge of a Nervous Breakdown with Russia Lawsuit

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What's actually going on is nature abhorring a vacuum. The Democrats' real problem is that they don't have any policies. Other than nauseating segregationist identity politics, the Democratic Party no longer exists. It doesn't stand for anything. This lawsuit is an indication that deep down they know this and are panicking. What are they going to do if Trump makes peace with North Korea?

The Democratic terror of a miracle in North Korea

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

This White House has been widely rebuked by the Democrats for its leaks and chaotic way of doing business, and often deserving of such rebuke, but this time it kept a secret. If there’s anything worse than a leak in Washington, it’s being left out of the leak. And if there’s anything worse than a national calamity, it’s for the wrong man getting the credit for making it go away. If Donald Trump achieves a dramatic breakthrough on the Korean peninsula, the credit and praise for it will be muted if it makes any noise at all on the other side of the partisan divide. The president can count on it.

#NeverMitt Wins Round One Of Utah Senate Race

Mitt Romney came in second in Saturday's Utah Republican Convention because he’s weak on gun rights, he’s aloof and won’t answer questions, he won’t stand up for the Constitution said supporters of conservative candidate state Rep. Michael Kennedy. Dr. Kennedy beat Romney 51 percent to 49 percent forcing a primary under Utah's arcane nomination procedure.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bullying by bullhorn is no way for leftists to win political arguments

The left’s agenda will not allow radical groups to take a seat in order to make the Democrats they support look more mainstream ahead of this year’s midterm elections. When it comes to making the GOP and Trump look “normal” there’s nothing better than a gathering of leftists with bullhorns.

Trump, Mueller, firing, and fury

Editors, Washington Examiner

The Russia investigation isn’t going to ensnare Trump. So the best thing Trump can do for himself and his country is to let Mueller finish his job. If the Senate can encourage him to do that with a firm warning, then every senator who supports Trump, as much as those who oppose him, should be eager to issue it.

Never Trumpers' Whining About Principles Was Just An Act

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

You know all that insufferable babbling and crying about “principles” we had to endure from you Never Trump Konservative Ken Dolls? No one’s fooled. And no one cares. Which ought to scare the hell out of you. Because when the liberals figure out that you have zero credibility with us real conservatives, you’ll stop being their useful idiot. You’ll just be a plain old idiot.

Stop Gun-Grabbing Rep. Kevin McCarthy From Being Speaker Of The House

We urge all of our Second Amendment supporting friends to go to the GOA website and use the tools they have to let your Representative know that you oppose Kevin McCarthy for Speaker, and that you want a principled, limited government constitutional conservative like Jim Jordan to be the next Speaker of the House.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Comey’s insult of the GOP rings like a compliment to conservatives

Not everything is as it appears on the surface. James Comey’s backhanded slap at the GOP was actually a positive thing for Republicans, just as a change in leadership in the House is entirely necessary to ensure good legislation sees the light of day. For conservatives, change couldn’t come fast enough.

The Outrageous Outing of Sean Hannity, Cont’d

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Courts “don’t do poetic justice, they do prosaic justice” — the routine, workaday adherence to the principles and standards on which the rule of law depends. Under that kind of justice, courts protect uncharged people from being identified in public proceedings in connection with criminal investigations. The failure of the court and the government lawyers to enforce that standard just adds fuel to the fiery contention that, where President Trump is involved, investigations are driven by politics, not law enforcement.

Paul Ryan’s Parting Gift To America: Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

Here is the list of cosponsors of of Speaker Ryan's “Queen of the Hill” resolution. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative today to urge them to not to sign on to H.Res. 774 and to oppose any bill that grants amnesty to illegal aliens.

Our Candidate For Speaker – Conservative Jim Jordan – Will Defund Planned Parenthood

And unlike Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarty, Steve Scalise and the rest of the existing establishment Republican “leadership” Jim Jordan has not been compromised by voting to give our tax dollars to the baby killers of Planned Parenthood.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Comey flareup proves the DC swamp isn’t even close to being drained

Donald Trump came to Washington in order to shake the system to its core and wrest power away from the swamp dwellers who’d polluted the water for decades. As the recent Comey episode proves, the work is just beginning – there’s an awful lot of slime to scrape off the sidewalks.

Trump Vastly Better than Obama at Foreign Policy

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump, as he has demonstrated, has little use for ideology or even consistency. In a constantly changing world, he may be right. Those who are looking for some sort of Trump Doctrine may be looking for something that is actually outmoded. So far he is being more successful than Obama and all the neo-Marxist works of Marcuse, Gramsci, etc. combined.

Andrew McCabe Lied: Will FBI Apply Same Rules Against Him That It Applies to All of Us?

Hans von Spakovsky, CNS News

Flynn was charged with lying to FBI agents about conversations with the Russian ambassador. Lying to a federal agent is a felony, even if—like Flynn—you are not under oath at the time. It is clear from the inspector general’s report that McCabe lied to federal agents multiple times, including while under oath. Will he be prosecuted as Flynn was? It seems as if the FBI and the Justice Department have no choice—unless they believe that their colleagues are somehow above the law.

Still waiting for the garlic bullet

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Donald Trump called James Comey a “slimeball,” which is not a very presidential way to talk. But just this time we might have to forgive the president. James Comey really is a slimeball. Just about everybody says so. The critics of his book, finally out Monday after the weekend news accounts had already begun squeezing the juice out of it, joined in a rare unanimous appraisal of the man who wrote the book. He’s a windbag, a hack, a blowhard, a swaggering pretender, a churl and the hindquarters of a horse.

James Comey's book falls as flat as its cover

Editors, Washington Examiner

Comey's name-calling makes for an unpersuasive condemnation of this presidency. His observations about Trump's orange-ness, his hand size, and the length of his tie, aren’t even original, let alone amusing except to that corps of haters who giggle at any show of disrespect to the chief executive. Perhaps the only impact they will have is to engender among disaffected conservatives a certain sympathy for a president whose substantive policies have been a pleasant surprise.

The Supreme Court Already Said Trump Can Fire Mueller

The reasoning in Myers v. United States, decided by the Supreme Court in 1926, applies to the President’s ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller if he so chooses. Congressional attempts to “protect” Mueller from the President’s clear constitutional authority are intentional efforts to precipitate a constitutional crisis for the benefit of those who think impeaching President Trump will benefit them politically.

Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Attacks Swamp Dwelling Indiana GOP Senate Primary Opponents

Meyer Distributing CEO and Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Braun yesterday unveiled a new advertising campaign titled “Swamp Brothers” that may remake how outsider candidates run against their establishment Republican primary opponents.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP money worries over Ryan’s exit aren’t just unfounded – they’re dumb

Perhaps the money will flow in this year, perhaps it won’t. The GOP will survive regardless – but will the conservative cause? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that as long as Republicans do what they’re supposed to do that good things will follow, including coffers full of campaign cash.

Trump: Prisoner of the War Party?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Clearly, with the U.S. fighting in six countries, Commander in Chief Trump does not want any new wars, or to widen any existing wars in the Middle East. But he is being pushed into becoming a war president to advance the agenda of foreign policy elites who, almost to a man, opposed his election. We have a reluctant president being pushed into a war he does not want to fight. This is a formula for a strategic disaster not unlike Vietnam or George W. Bush's war to strip Iraq of nonexistent WMD.
