Trump Won’t Be Punked By Foreign Dirtbags Like Obama Was

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s again clear that if you are thinking about getting uppity with the U.S. of A, you are rolling the dice. Of course, the liberals whine, which is good because the volume of their yelps is a terrific metric for success. The more they cry about it, the better an idea it is. May they weep long and hard, because America has got its feck back.

The President’s Gary Cohn Problem: The First Article In An Ongoing Series

When one sifts through all of the evidence and clues as to why the President’s economic and domestic policy agenda remain not only unfulfilled, but unarticulated, one problem keeps coming to the fore: The appointment of former Goldman Sachs President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn to head the President’s National Economic Council.

War Cries vs. ‘America First’

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The promise of a Trump presidency—that we would start looking out for our own country and own national interests first and let the rest of the world solve, or fail to solve, its own problems—appears, not 100 days in, to have been a mirage. Will more wars make America great again?

No, Trump is not a neo-con

Rich Lowry, New York Post

All neo-cons may be hawks, but not all hawks are neo-cons, who are distinctive in their idealism and robust interventionism. We haven’t heard peans to democracy from Trump, or clarion calls for human rights. He hasn’t seriously embraced regime change anywhere (even if his foreign-policy officials say Assad has to go). He shows no sign of a willingness to make a major commitment of US ground troops.

Admit It: Donald Trump Is Exceeding Your Expectations

Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator

All in all, the first 90 days have exceeded modest expectations. That’s better than destroying them and crushing dreams. It’s okay to admit it unless your name is Evan McMullin. Everyone else, though, can take a moment and admit that President Donald Trump is better than imagined and might even turn out to be a decent president.

Gorsuch Asks The Right Questions

Asking the right questions doesn’t mean that Justice Gorsuch will reach the right decisions in these or any future case before the Court.  However, conservatives can take encouragement that Justice Gorsuch is starting from the plain language of the Constitution and the statues Congress has passed, not the whims and fantasies of other judges.

Carpetbaggers Come Back To Georgia

Georgia suffered once before when carpetbaggers invaded the Peach State, and it will suffer again, should carpetbagging Democrat Jon Ossoff and his liberal Hollywood friends gain the victory in today’s Congressional District 6 special election.

Pence Says Trump Will End Decades Of Failed North Korea Policy

"We're going to abandon the failed policy of strategic patience. But we're going to redouble our efforts to bring diplomatic and economic pressure to bear on North Korea. Our hope is that we can resolve this issue peaceably," Pence said in an exclusive interview at the Korean DMZ.

Trump Will Win Bigly in 2020

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump's recent foreign policy successes will generate domestic opportunities. Success breeds success. Look for the Republican log jams on healthcare and taxes to break soon.  No, my eyesight isn't 2020, but I can see that year from here without my glasses.

Trump's Tilt to China Spells Trouble for Putin

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democrats in their unremitting (and increasingly self-destructive) zeal to prove Trump has been colluding with Russia completely missed the red dragon in the room.  It's Beijing our president has been  conspiring with, not Moscow. And he's seemingly doing a decent job of it too. In the foreign policy area, Trump is behaving like Reagan.  Peace through strength -- so far.

The Trump Presidency Begins

Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal

We have arrived in the foothills of the Trump presidency, and warnings no doubt abound. Not least is the Republican obsession with the sport of cliff-diving over dry land. What’s important is that a presidency that was almost too much fun has taken a turn for the serious.

Remember when the establishment thought Trump was crazy?

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

These people cannot agree on pretty much anything else. But spending gobs of money policing the world with never-ending foreign wars? They suddenly break out in hot pulsating bipartisanship. So perhaps it should come as little surprise that these people who so loathed Donald Trump the candidate are so thrilled with Donald Trump the president for firing 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles into a Syrian civil war that American voters are pretty adamant about staying out of.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: More Trump Than Trump White House

Yesterday Attorney General Sessions declared: “For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch and release practices of old are over.”

Is Trump Joining the War Party?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

As in most wars, the first shots fired receive the loudest cheers. But if the president has thrown in with the neocons and War Party, and we are plunging back into the Mideast maelstrom, Trump should know that many of those who helped to nominate and elect him—to keep us out of unnecessary wars—may not be standing by him.
