With Flynn Out Islamist Sympathizers In At Trump White House?

Mike Flynn was clear-eyed about the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Whoever conned President Trump into saying that he thought Islam has been “kidnapped by radical groups” did so by failing to tell him that he was meeting with a representative of one of the chief kidnappers – the Wahhabis of the Saudi royal family.

Tell the House Freedom Caucus: Stand Tall Against #RYNOcare

#RYNOCare is destined for failure and we conservatives need to call and tweet House Freedom Caucus members today to tell them to stand firm against this bill, and that we’ve got their backs when the establishment comes after them!

Ryancare a Kamikaze Mission for Trump

Ryancare is a twofer for Ryan: He and his big government DC pals continue to control people’s lives by controlling the health care and health insurance markets and they screw Trump in the process.

How Investigating the Trump Campaign Backfired on Obama’s Embeds

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Obama embeds were fiendishly busy in October, at once investigating Trump’s computer server and leaking to the press about it, all on the gamble that their exertions would help catapult Hillary into the White House. They gambled wrong.

The Coming #RINOcare War On Conservatives

American Action Network, a political action committee with ties to former Speaker John Boehner and current Speaker Paul Ryan, is airing a half-million dollars’ worth of television ads in the districts of 30 Freedom Caucus members urging them to support Paul Ryan's #RINOcare bill.

The Battle to Keep the Pentagon in Democrat Hands

Staffing the Pentagon with the same people who created today’s national security disaster and expecting them to fix it is a recipe for complete failure, but this is apparently where Gen. Mattis is heading.

Ryan and Trump Acting Like Obama and Pelosi?

Eight years after Obama and Pelosi set out to pass Obamacare, Republican Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican President Donald Trump are embarked on similar path that, if it continues, will have disastrous political consequences for the Trump and Republican brands.

Who Will Wiretap the Wiretappers?

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

The more interesting question remains not whether the feds snooped on Trump but why they felt it necessary. Whereas most politicians clamor for a right to privacy, Trump demands that the press respect his God-given right to publicity. Wiretaps of the past president surely would reveal much. Bugs of Trump likely just show Trump as we know Trump.

The Beginnings of Obama’s Shadow Government

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

All of this sets Obama up to war against Trump from both inside and outside the government. His operatives salted throughout the government and intelligence agencies will plant phony controversies; his army of agitators outside of it will protest over them. This is what Obama meant when he said that he would devote part of his post-presidency to rekindling his roots as a community organizer. Yes, he is organizing a community of sorts, but to conduct a coup. If anyone has a right to be livid, it is Trump.

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?

#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

My guess is this will all come down to whether our former president knew about this wiretapping -- whoever authorized it and wherever it came from -- and, if so, when. And also how he reacted to it and what he did from there.  It's all, in the grand Clintonian tradition, about what the definition of "ordered" is.

The Obama Camp’s Disingenuous Denials on FISA Surveillance of Trump

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

At the very time it appears the Obama Justice Department was seeking to surveil Trump and/or his associates on the pretext that they were Russian agents, the Obama Justice Department was also actively undermining and ultimately closing without charges the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton despite significant evidence of felony misconduct that threatened national security. This appears to be extraordinary, politically motivated abuse of presidential power.

Schumer's plan to Keep Obama appointees in power

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats continue to snub President Trump by slowing down Senate confirmation of his Cabinet appointments. Their underlying goal is to allow remaining Obama-appointed bureaucrats to do as much damage to the Trump administration as they can before leaving.

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.

Conservatives Urge President Trump To Act To Protect Religious Freedom

Saying “Naming the problem is the first step toward addressing it” the letter commended President Trump for identifying the threat, however, the letter also called attention to the ongoing threats to religious liberty that can only be reversed by Presidential action.

Radical Democrats Rebranding Themselves Into Permanent Minority

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
It was with great interest and pleasure that I observed how this past weekend – by electing former Obama Labor Secretary Tom Perez as Chairman and runner-up Congressman Keith Ellison as Deputy Chairman – the Democratic Party officially and publicly abandoned its 85-year-old brand as the party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal.

Despite the Hysteria, Trump Is Trending Less Authoritarian Than Obama

David French, National Review

A president is “authoritarian” not when he’s angry or impulsive or incompetent or tweets too much. He’s authoritarian when he seeks to expand his own power beyond constitutional limits. In this regard, the Obama administration — though far more polite and restrained in most of its public comments — was truly one of our more authoritarian.

Obama’s Economic Report Card Sees America Hit New Low

Ed Feulner, CNS News

The U.S. economy is remarkably resilient, but it needs help. Fortunately, the Trump administration has promised a sharp break with the regulatory, tax and trade policies of recent years. Regaining our place among the top 10 economies won’t be easy, but it can be done. And the sooner, the better. Your move, President Trump.

Obama left a lot of House Cleaning to do

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

While cleaning up the unmentionables after Obama’s regulatory Bacchanal is the Lord’s work, Ryan advertised that by mid-March he’d have Obamacare in his crosshairs. He’s going to have to stick to that schedule, because the folks who put the GOP in sole control of the federal government are not going to be interested in excuses. If this is spring training, it had better produce a team ready to win on Opening Day.

Who Will Hold the IRS Accountable?

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Under the framework of the founders, the people are masters, not servants, and the IRS holds no bondage on their freedoms. Congress must at long last investigate fully the IRS’s out-of-control investigators. Instead of wasting time on the fashions of the moment, Congress should deliver to the forgotten the protection that the Constitution promises them.
