100 Days of Trump: At long last, conservatives reach the promised land on immigration

Donald Trump gets his general to lead the war against illegal immigration, and his wall, too. Plus, #NeverTrump “conservative” Evan McMullin invites the left to join him in opposing President Trump, and, Democrats and the media melting down over Trump’s call to investigate voter fraud.

Transition to Trump: History will mark today as the day America became great again

No one knows how successful Donald Trump will be in “Making America Great Again” but we can be very sure he’ll give it his best shot. Plus, As Trump takes office, plans are already in place to slice the size of the federal government, and, Trump won’t let the Democrats’ stonewalling of cabinet nominees stop him from making change right away.

The ‘Russia Hacked the Election’ Narrative Battle Continues—Are Republicans Paying Attention?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Democrats want Sessions to concede, in effect, that he has a powerful motive to conceal Russia’s espionage — such that he must recuse himself because we cannot trust him to lead a fair and impartial investigation. Implicitly, Sessions would be conceding — and thus cementing — the fiction that “Russia hacked the election.”

Americans Are In The Dark About The Greatest Threats To Their Country

No other nation today poses a greater danger to American national security than China, a state engaged in an unprecedented campaign of information warfare using both massive cyberattacks and influence operations aimed at diminishing what Beijing regards as its most important strategic enemy – the United States of America.

Today’s Blood Libel: A Democrat Specialty

Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator

If Barack Obama or John Lewis or Cory Booker or Hillary “Who?” Clinton are going to imply that any of those people, or any other Republicans, or you, or I are racists — the only card they have left to play in a country that has witnessed so many years of the failure of “progressive” policies — we, and especially you Republicans, must push back.

Sessions Hearings Show Democrats Ill-Equipped To Stop Trump

Kevin Daley, Daily Caller

Though the Trump presidency seems, and probably will be, a powerful banner around which Democrats will rally, the Sessions hearing placed in sharp relief the extent to which the party and its allies are scattered and directionless. The cleavages between interest groups, Senate Democrats, and the White House were wide and easily avoided. Their performance gives the appearance of flat-footedness.

Jeff Sessions Faces Democrats' Decades-Old Race-Baiting Routine

Curt Levey, PJ Media

During the campaign, the opponents of Donald Trump focused on exploiting every opportunity to portray him as a bigot. This one-dimensional, overwrought, tired, and ultimately unsuccessful line of attack is very similar to the strategy now being employed by the opponents of Sessions's confirmation. At a time when 73% of American voters believe that politicians raise racial issues only to get elected, this strategy is virtually certain to fail.

Booker was a bust

Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard

Booker had nothing to say about Sessions's personal and private views on race. He had no secrets about Sessions to reveal. His opposition turned out to be a disagreement over policy. A liberal, Booker objected to Sessions's conservative views. For those eager to derail the Sessions nomination, this had to be a letdown. As soon as Booker finished his testimony, the air went out of the anti-Sessions balloon.

Why Left Opposes Sessions: He's Right; They're Wrong

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

The confirmation fight over Session has been intense, but it is merely a prelude to the domestic Cold War confrontation we will see over Supreme Court nominations. If Trump names pro-life constitutionalists — as he has promised — the battle cry then must be taken from Ronald Reagan: We win, they lose.

On Fire: The Racist Anti-Racists at MTV News

Michelle Malkin, Townhall

Upon spotting Sessions with one of his multiracial granddaughters sitting on his lap as he waited for the proceedings to begin, MTV News "culture writer" Ira Madison III tweeted a photo of them and snarked: "Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys 'R' Us you stole her from." So much for liberals celebrating diversity. So much for Michelle Obama's rallying cry to the left that "our motto is, when they go low, we go high."
