Tea Party Going Back To Washington

Tea Party activists will hold a rally in DC on March 15, but the major focus of the action for this day is to act as citizen lobbyists and visit Congressional offices in person. Wouldn’t it be great if conservatives could flood Capitol Hill with supporters of the President’s nominees and agenda?

Trump Is Beating the Media at Its Own Game

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Contrary to the whining of Jake Tapper at CNN, last week’s press conference was not a distraction from his governance but an essential component of it. He recognizes that his agenda can only move forward if the people tune out the media’s distortions of it. Were Trump to take the media’s advice, he couldn’t govern. The more he neutralizes the media, the more successful he will be.

Missing the Meaning of Trump

Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., The Wall Street Journal

Mr. Trump is an unusual president in that, unlike any we can think of, he speaks only for himself. There is no army of Trump interest groups and loyalists and activists to respond to his command or suggestion. He does not have deep knowledge of policy, government or politics. He does not have longtime organizational ties.

Media responds to Trump’s ‘fake news’ charge — by pumping out fake news!

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

After last week's Trump press conference, the press bristled at charges from the new president that they are selling fake news — and immediately goes out and proves his point. Just when you thought Washington couldn’t get any weirder.

How Dictatorships Get Started

Contrary to what Senator McCain said about dictatorship starting by suppressing a free press, it is not hard to see parallels between today’s free, but highly politicized establishment elite media, and the media in Germany that helped the Nazis take power.

Is a Trump-Putin Detente Dead?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Believing Putin robbed Hillary Clinton of the presidency, Democrats are bent on revenge—on Putin and Trump. And the epidemic of Russophobia makes it almost impossible to pursue normal relations. Indeed, in reaction to the constant attacks on them as poodles of Putin, the White House seems to be toughening up toward Russia.

America’s Biggest Lawbreaker versus Donald Trump

As we wrote in The Law That Governs Government, efforts by bureaucrats within the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, and even the Justice Department and national security infrastructure to undermine the Trump administration are signs that the administrative state is openly hostile to the constitutional rule of law.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say Leakers Must Be Prosecuted

Conservatives agree with President Trump that the illegal leaks used against Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn are the true scandal, and that the leakers should be found and prosecuted, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.

The media doesn’t call the shots — Trump does

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump is serving notice that he, and not the media, sets the nation’s agenda. And that when journalists behave like opponents, he will treat them like opponents, punching back harder than they punch him.

Limbaugh: 'The media did not make Donald Trump, and they can't destroy him'

Caitlin Yilek, Washington Examiner

Limbaugh claimed the media have a "blueprint for destroying" Republicans they disagree with, but they won't take Trump down. "He doesn't fit that mold. They're trying to every day. It's kind of comical to watch," he said referring to the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS and NBC, among others.

Patriotism lives: Pro-Trump rallies to revive 'Spirit of America'

Bob Unruh, WND.com

“Spirit of America Rallies” are being planned nationwide on Feb. 27 and March 4. With flags a welcome sight and featuring the National Anthem. They are being organized by, about and for “the same cross section of Americans that propelled President Trump to victory and will reinforce and support the current policies being put in place that will help Make America Great Again!”

Tennessee Star: Nashville to Host Impeach Rogue Judges Rally

“We will urge our Representatives [in the United States House of Representatives] to impeach, and for the Senate to try, convict, and remove [Federal District] Judge James Robart in Washington and [Federal District] Judge Leonie Brinkema in Virginia,” The Spirit of America Rally organizer Mark Skoda told our friends at the TennesseeStar.com.

The Deep State Targets Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The president and GOP should get out front here. Let Congress investigate Russia meddling in our election. And let a special prosecutor run down, root out, expose, and indict those in the investigative and intel agencies who used their custody of America’s secrets, in collusion with press collaborators, to take down Trump appointees who are on their enemies lists.

Trump is the answer to all that ails Washington

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

People love Mr. Trump because he does not play nice for the cameras. He is always willing to eviscerate you — while looking you straight in the eye. And he usually draws a laugh while doing it. Most of all, Mr. Trump is an agent of total disruption, bordering on chaos — everything American voters would like to see set upon Washington.

The Media Bulls Have Met Their Matador in Trump

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The press in general believes and acts as if  they are a protected class. But this leads to them behaving like bulls at a corrida, rushing around everywhere, attacking every possible target until the matador arrives, focusing their attention. Yes, Trump gives them plenty of possible targets -- more than he should and doubtless would like to. But this obscures the larger issues on which he is so often right and in sync with the public. And on this day, he was able to play the press like a picador, banderillero, and matador all rolled into one.

Thank Judges Robart and Brinkema When This Comes to America

The need for “extreme vetting” of supposed “refugees” from failed states and terrorist hotspots is demonstrated almost daily in the media, should Judges like Leonie Brinkema and James L. Robart choose to take judicial notice of such news reports. A particularly frightening example was recently revealed during the trial in Sweden of an asylum-seeking war criminal.
