Report: FBI Russia Probe Failed To Find Evidence Against Trump

Kerry Pickett, Daily Caller

Agents who investigated claims of computer server activity tied to Russia and then President-elect-Trump’s businesses in New York’s Trump Towers came to the conclusion that no disreputable contacts, financial transactions or encrypted communications occurred with the Russians, according to Circa.

President Trump: Remember The Snake

To stop Ryancare's benefits for illegal aliens, massive new entitlements and big government we urge conservatives to contact the White House to let President Trump know he's being suckered on this deal.

Paul Ryan Betrays President Trump On Obamacare Repeal And Replace

Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or Ryancare, whatever you call it, Speaker Ryan's phony "repeal and replace" bill is actually worse than Obamacare in many respects, and it is all being done behind closed doors using budget reconciliation, not open debate and amendments. To stop Ryancare's benefits for illegal aliens, and massive new entitlements and big government we urge conservatives to contact the White House to let President Trump know he's being suckered on this deal.

The Beltway Conspiracy to Break Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

While President Obama may not have ordered any surveillance of Trump or his advisors, the real question is whether he or Attorney General Loretta Lynch were aware of or approved of any surveillance of Trump and his staff during the campaign. Russian hacking of the DNC is a problem, not a scandal. The scandal is this: Who inside the government of the United States is trying to discredit, damage or destroy the President of the United States?

Liberal New York Times columnist may face serious legal problems

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

President Trump takes a lot of flak for his tweeting, but a prominent liberal New York Times columnist may face more than criticism.  Could NY Times’ Kristoff’s tweet asking anyone at the IRS to criminally leak Trump’s tax return be solicitation of a felony? With the Department of Justice now back in the business of enforcing the law against even liberals, perhaps we will be reading more about this solicitation in the future.

Trump's better order — and the border

Editors, Washington Examiner

The simple step of announcing and explaining the order was a big, necessary step. The order is more detailed and it contains a thorough legal justification, and the administration also released a fact sheet helping to clarify it yet further. The Cabinet secretaries on Monday laid out the framework and some of the reasoning.

DC in Chaos

Robert Verbruggen, The American Conservative

To be sure, this is hardly the first time DC has reeked of dysfunction. Only time will tell if Republicans can get it together like the Democrats did eight years ago to pass Obamacare. But the early signs are not encouraging, and that dog-that-caught-the-mail-truck cliché seems more apt by the day.

Trump's big-government fixes are giving conservatives indigestion

Gabby Morrongiello, Washington Examiner

Trump's hour-long speech was an ode to the populist working-class supporters who helped put him in office, but included headache-inducing ideas for some ultra-conservative lawmakers who spent the last eight years haranguing his predecessor for expanding the scope of government.

Trump Admin Quietly Gives Illegal Immigrants Work Permit Extensions

Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller

The White House has overall been enacting Trump’s tough-on-immigration campaign promises. DHS has ordered the construction of a border wall and has removed constraints placed by the Obama administration on Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. The Washington Post reported Friday that illegal immigrants have begun to leave the U.S. voluntarily.

Trump is Right: Obama Monitored the Communications of Political Opponents

Having been caught in 2015 in what was a major breach of the laws governing collection of intelligence on what are referred to as “US persons” Obama didn’t cease and desist; he refined his techniques and deployed them against the Trump campaign and transition.

It’s Trump’s Party Now

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Tuesday’s speech established Trump as the man in charge. But how loyal to him and his program will be the “deep state,” which dominates this city that gave Trump only 4 percent of its votes and, paranoically, believes him to be an agent of Vladimir Putin? The Trump-Beltway wars have only just begun.

On the eve of the insurrection

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The Democrats call their scorched-earth attacks on the new president “the resistance.” But it is accurately described as “an insurrection.” They’re determined to destroy a duly elected president of the United States, by resignation or impeachment if they can, and if that doesn’t work, maybe something more sinister will be employed. We’ve never before seen anything like this. We’re sailing in uncharted water.

The Democrats Abandon the Ship of State

Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal

Congressional Democrats have two options now. Option one is to stay the course of mass resistance. This option assumes that Tuesday evening’s President Trump will revert soon to Mr. T, the combative street-fighter. Option two is get out of the streets and get in the game Mr. Trump offered them in his speech. More likely is that the Schumer-Warren Democrats will spend two years listening to the resurrected voice from their past: “Hell no, we won’t go.”

How To Attend A #SpiritOfAmerica Rally This Saturday

Time for U.S. To Leave Afghanistan

It would be wonderful if the U.S. could create a liberal future for Afghans who desire to escape the past. But that task is beyond Washington’s capabilities and cannot justify expending more American lives and monies.
