Donald Trump

Reported FBI probe of Trump was led by anti-Trump fanatics who betrayed Constitution

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

President Trump was not betraying the Constitution. There is no evidence he ever considered betraying his country for the Russians. It is the Justice Department bureaucrats who have been betraying the Constitution. Leaking this report to The New York Times rather than submitting it to the Congress is just one more example of the willingness of Justice Department officials to violate the rules and undermine the rule of law in favor of the rule of power.

Saving The Earth At The Point Of A Bayonet

The only way the Green New Deal could be accomplished would be through the forced relocation of millions of workers and their families in a massive societal restructuring akin to the forced collectivization of Russian agriculture after the Soviet Revolution of 1917 or Chairman Mao’s Great Leap Forward economic restructuring of Communist China.

Assault on America, Day 12: Since when is David Hogg qualified to assess national emergencies?

Democrats don’t care about law enforcement because if it’s done properly, they’d have no reason for being. Whether it’s enacting unnecessary gun purchasing restrictions or refusing to vote to secure the border, Democrats’ platform tramples on what many Americans hold sacred.

The Path to a ‘National Emergency’

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What should Trump do now? Act. He cannot lose this battle with Pelosi without demoralizing his people and imperiling his presidency. Since FDR, we have had presidential government. And when U.S. presidents have been decisive activists, history has rewarded their actions. Trump should declare a national emergency, shift funds out of the Pentagon, build his wall, open the government and charge Democrats with finding excuses not to secure our border because they have a demographic and ideological interest in changing the face of the nation. "America First!" is still a winning hand.

How the Trump economic miracle shatters the left

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

Trump's economic track record pointedly demonstrates that the statist vision — radical wealth redistribution, socialized medicine, green energy chimeras, social justice enforcement, limits on free speech, private property and gun ownership, and the rule of the leftist mob — creates only tyranny, poverty, injustice and servitude. Mr. Trump and his economic thunderbolt are exposing the left and its policies as irredeemably bankrupt, economically and morally. And that is perhaps the biggest reason why they must try to destroy him.

Mr. President, No Surrender On The Wall

Though we don’t want to see anyone out of work or missing a paycheck, why should anyone care more that a hundred or a thousand or ten thousand government employees are not getting paid - than for the survival of their country?

Assault on America, Day 9: DC swamp elites hate temper tantrums -- we should all throw one

“Chucky” Schumer will continue using President Trump’s temperament as an excuse not to act on a host of things, including the border wall, national security and the federal budget. Even if Trump threw a “temper tantrum” it was entirely justified. Maybe us citizens should follow his lead.

America’s Southern Border Isn’t Just a Crisis, It’s a Disgrace

Chris Buskirk, American Greatness

Some so-called conservatives defend the illegal immigration insanity in the name of a misunderstood devotion to markets or addiction to cheap, peasant labor. They seem to have forgotten that America is a country with an economy, not the other way around. And losing sight of that basic truth they’re destroying the basis of our shared liberty and prosperity. That is not just a national crisis, it’s a disgrace, and President Trump is right to insist that Congress act to protect the American people.

What V.P. Mike Pence Asked Conservatives To Do

Yesterday, CHQ Richard A. Viguerie and his team participated in a conference call with Vice President Pence about the Wall. It was a good call, but we think the Vice President underestimated what the President’s grassroots conservative-populist supporters would be willing to do to help get the Wall built and we have some additional action items to suggest.

Assault on America, Day 8: Chuck & Nancy creep show falls flat before scared national onlookers

As amply demonstrated by Democrat leaders on Tuesday night they can’t even effectively convey their side of the argument, much less win on the merits. Regardless of how people feel about Trump they should separate fact from fiction on the border wall and the government shutdown.

Last Night The President Asked For Our Help, Are You In?

Last night during his Oval Office address on border security President Trump made a simple request of every American: To every citizen: call Congress and tell them to finally – after all of these decades – secure our border. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) call your Senators and Representative TODAY tell them #BuildTheDamnWallNow.

The Wall And The Shameful Silence Of GOP Leaders

Why shouldn’t the Democrats think they can win the fight over the Wall? For the past two years the GOP’s congressional leaders were shamefully silent whenever the subject of the Wall came up and stalled around avoiding any showdown with the Democrats that when won would have funded the Wall.

Assault on America, Day 7: Style over substance is the way of the new Democrat House majority

As long as there’s a Democrat pretty face and an American establishment media to exploit it, expect more fawning and groveling over someone like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Style over substance or practicality is the way of the left -- the crazier the idea, the more they love it.

Trump Veers Off Message on the Border Wall

John Fund, National Review

Changing tactics would be the best way for Trump to end the stalemate that has shut down one-fourth of the government for more than two weeks. He should brand Congress as irresponsible on the issue of border security and say he’s been forced to direct the Defense Department to use some of its unallocated funds for border construction projects. Doing it that way, the president would probably score points on the political argument and ensure that, come the 2020 election, he will have actually built something along the border rather than just talking about it.

Mr. President, Here’s What You Must Tell The American People Tonight

The Left has made its opposition to the border wall clear. So, the President should use tonight's address to make Democrats own the effects of their policies and brand them as the Party of the murder, drug pushing, economic upheaval and chaos that their policies have brought to our country. Only by using the proven technique of a primetime TV address pioneered by President Ronald Reagan can President Trump make those dangers known to the American people.

Assault on America, Day 6: How long will voter ignorance fuel Dems in shutdown tug-of-war?

Both sides blame the other for perpetuating the government shutdown. Democrats continue relying on the ignorance of voters to make their arguments stick, a situation where eventually good common sense should prevail. Trump can take matters into his own hands…should he?

President Trump Calls for America to Recruit 'the Smartest People in the World'

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

Not a word appeared in the mainstream media about President Trump's call for more legal immigrants to build America's talent pool. The liberal media is so anxious to portray the president as a jingoist xenophobe that it ignored a key policy statement on immigration. Trump declared in his Jan. 4 press conference on the government shutdown that the U.S. should convince the hundreds of thousands of foreign students who attend our universities to stay here and contribute to the U.S. economy. He's been listening to U.S. tech companies, who need the talent.

A lot of noise before the storm

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The president is not likely to get serious opposition in the primaries, once bravado is exhausted and everybody gets down to a real campaign. The president’s Republican critics will remember what happens when a president is bitten by snakes within his own party. The memory of what happened to Jimmy Carter is fresh enough. Ted Kennedy, thought to be the giant killer, challenged the hapless Mr. Jimmy in the primaries. “I’ll whip his ass,” said the Georgia Sunday-school teacher, and he did, only to lose to Ronald Reagan. Lightning can strike twice, and sometimes does.

The Character That Matters

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

The reason I am happy to say that Donald Trump, despite his imperfections, is a man of good character is that he has again and again shown himself to be willing to storm the cockpit of our corrupt, sclerotic, and increasingly unaccountable governmental apparatus. He has worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people and by implication (and it was part of his genius to make this connection) on behalf of people everywhere. He understands that his job is to put America first, but that by so doing he benefits everyone with whom we deal. Those things, I think, are marks of good character.

Some Good Fake News For A Change

Last week the internet was awash in articles claiming that former Secretary of the Navy and Democratic Senator James Webb was under consideration to be the next Secretary of Defense. This turned out to be fake news, which is the best fake news we’ve heard in a long time, because Webb would have made a terrible Secretary of Defense.
