    Trump is serving notice that he, and not the media, sets the nation’s agenda. And that when journalists behave like opponents, he will treat them like opponents, punching back harder than they punch him.

    Limbaugh claimed the media have a "blueprint for destroying" Republicans they disagree with, but they won't take Trump down. "He doesn't fit that mold. They're trying to every day. It's kind of comical to watch," he said referring to the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS and NBC, among others.

    The Obama list is quite long, and that is not surprising. Obama was a socialist and socialists of all stripes have a long record of suppressing freedom of the press, subordinating its expression to the interests of an all-powerful state and its dictator. McCain found nothing wrong with that when Obama was playing that game and undercutting the press in what seemed to be pretty oppressive and downright illegal behavior.

    “Spirit of America Rallies” are being planned nationwide on Feb. 27 and March 4. With flags a welcome sight and featuring the National Anthem. They are being organized by, about and for “the same cross section of Americans that propelled President Trump to victory and will reinforce and support the current policies being put in place that will help Make America Great Again!”

    If Washington had not been president, it is possible a civil war could have occurred several decades earlier. Washington proved that the ability to bring change to this country requires trust. It’s a lesson worth recalling today, as trust in government has steadily eroded over the decades. By 2015, trust in government fell to 19 percent. Neither party today can make any big changes without trust. How can they regain it? For starters, by going back to our first presidency and pondering how George Washington had earned it, what it means to have it, and what it takes to keep it.

    There appears to have been no foreign-intelligence or criminal-investigative purpose served by the FBI’s interrogation of General Flynn. It is easy to see why Democrats would want to portray Flynn’s contact with the Russian ambassador as worthy of an FBI investigation. But why did the FBI and the Justice Department investigate Flynn — and why did “officials” make sure the press found out about it?

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    The president and GOP should get out front here. Let Congress investigate Russia meddling in our election. And let a special prosecutor run down, root out, expose, and indict those in the investigative and intel agencies who used their custody of America’s secrets, in collusion with press collaborators, to take down Trump appointees who are on their enemies lists.

    Brennan and his leakers see no irony in becoming what they once opposed. In the 1970s, they cheered as the Church committee castigated the CIA for breaking laws. Now they use the CIA for their own dark arts and receive applause from ACLU-style liberals. They have gone from voting for communists to taping Russians, from fearing the unaccountable power of the system to wielding it shamelessly.

    People love Mr. Trump because he does not play nice for the cameras. He is always willing to eviscerate you — while looking you straight in the eye. And he usually draws a laugh while doing it. Most of all, Mr. Trump is an agent of total disruption, bordering on chaos — everything American voters would like to see set upon Washington.

    The press in general believes and acts as if  they are a protected class. But this leads to them behaving like bulls at a corrida, rushing around everywhere, attacking every possible target until the matador arrives, focusing their attention. Yes, Trump gives them plenty of possible targets -- more than he should and doubtless would like to. But this obscures the larger issues on which he is so often right and in sync with the public. And on this day, he was able to play the press like a picador, banderillero, and matador all rolled into one.

    For months now, the media have thrown every kind of screwball at Conway, but she keeps hitting everything out of the park. They loathe her, and now they're trying to ruin her. Alec Baldwin and "SNL" have been poking fun at Trump mercilessly for months. Hard-hitting? Of course. Funny? You better believe it. Trump's supporters — and President Trump himself — should laugh. But what is being done to Kellyanne Conway is no laughing matter. "SNL" needs to cut it out.

    Alexander Acosta is an experienced labor and employment lawyer whose conservative pedigree, education and experience in government are impeccable. Perhaps his personal net worth will drag down the average of the cabinet in an administration stocked with billionaires, but that's probably a good thing, as is the fact that no one will be able to say Trump didn't appoint any qualified Hispanic nominees.

    What have you got to lose? If it corroborates Flynn’s version of events, the public will understand that nothing of consequence happened in the conversation. If Flynn is misreporting it, it will support the White House story that the general is an unreliable source of information who was unsuited to a top advisory post. But the contents of the conversation are going to be public at some point anyway, so now is the time to be transparent rather than guilty-looking.

  • Richard Pollock, Daily Caller

    Former intelligence officials who understand spy craft say Flynn’s resignation had everything to do with a “disinformation campaign” and little to do with the December phone conversation he had with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. They charge officials from America’s top spy counsels leaked classified government intercepts of Flynn and President Trump’s conversations with world leaders and had “cutouts” — friendly civilians not associated with the agency — to distribute them to reporters in a coordinated fashion.

    Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell says President Trump's approval rating would be "10 to 15 points higher if he allowed himself to stay on message." In an interview yesterday, McConnell said he likes "what the president is doing," citing deregulation efforts, his Supreme Court nominee, and Cabinet picks. But "what he's saying makes everything harder." His tweets and comments often make it "harder to achieve what you want to achieve."
