Trump Is Right To Play Hardball With Dems

“Bipartisanship” can’t be a one-off arrangement; Democrats must recognize President Trump’s legitimacy and debate the details of legislation in good faith, or President Trump is perfectly justified in refusing cooperation with them on infrastructure or any other issue.

Did Trump Lock-Up 2020 In One Speech?

President Trump correctly identified the issues at bar in 2020 as the American dream versus the socialist nightmare. Democrats are already helping President Trump put their socialism on trial by embracing socialist candidates,  and by ratcheting-up the socialist rhetoric. It is up to us conservatives to make sure Trump obtains the conviction.

Media Ignores Great Economic News… Again

Inflation-adjusted disposable income rose 4.2 percent, last quarter, and America’s working families are seeing a continued gain in their disposable income, and thus a continued improvement in their quality of life. This is not only good news for America’s working families, it is good political news for President Trump, which is probably why it was buried by the establishment news media.

All the Pro-Trade Democrats Go Missing

Stephen Moore, CNS News

Voting down the USMCA would weaken the entire North American continent as we compete for continued supremacy against the European Union and the Asian Tigers. Democrats must get on board. Trump has threatened that if they won't, he will rescind NAFTA and reinstall the high-tariff policies of the previous era. But it would be better policy and politics to keep NAFTA in place and blame Nancy Pelosi and the other fake free trade Democrats for preventing an even better deal for American businesses and workers.

Trump Report Card: State of the Union Address 2019

Our friend David Franke shares President Donald Trump's report card for a class in Political Performance 101—an elective in both the theater/performance art department and the political science department of Franke University. Understood in this way, Prof. Franke gave President Trump a grade of A+.

Good News From Trump Wrecks Democrats

The American workers Donald Trump promised to fight for are the real winners of the Trump economic boom. Good news for Americans is death to the Democrat Party, and that is why in their coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union message most of the establishment media could not get beyond the shenanigans of the white-clad Democratic congresswomen.

Mexico deal shows Trump's trade strategy succeeding brilliantly

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

I have little doubt that Trudeau will meet a satisfactory portion of the U.S. demands.  The level of Canada's dependence on trade with the United States demands that.  Using his good cop-bad cop approach, President Trump will ease Trudeau through the process, at China's expense to the degree possible.  Then it will be on to our other principal trade partners, all of whom suffer from China's predation but none of whom have had the guts to stand up to its bullying.

Trump Kills NAFTA

Nothing explains Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss better than Monday’s announcement that Trump has kept his word to blue-collar voters in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin and other manufacturing states by officially dissolving NAFTA.

Here's what Trump gets right on trade

Editors, Washington Examiner

It would be a big mistake to let this agreement slip away because of poor diplomacy. But that doesn’t mean NAFTA is perfect. And in criticizing Canada’s cartels, Trump is correct. Both the U.S. and its NAFTA partners must cut government-controlled industrial policy. It’s not just cheating us in the short run, it’s making all of the partners poorer in the long run, to everyone’s detriment.

Viguerie Launches Campaign To Support Steve Bannon

We all know that if Steve Bannon is fired then Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller and the rest of the conservatives on the White House staff will soon be out the door as well.  Please contact the White House through the links in the article to urge President Trump to keep Steve Bannon on board.

Mr. President, Steve Bannon Is Your Last Best Link With Your Base

Call the White House today at 202-456-1111 or contact President Trump through Twitter at @realDonaldTrump or @POTUS and tell him Steve Bannon's continued service is essential to keep the winning Trump coalition together.

Mr. Outside and Mr. Inside at the Department of State?

The nomination of “Mr. Outside,” Rex Tillerson, as Secretary of State would mark the fulfillment of another important campaign promise by President-elect Trump. However, to fulfill his promise to drain the swamp at the State Department Donald Trump needs a “Mr. Inside.” Although it may be a difficult pill for some of our fellow non-interventionists to swallow, we can think of no one more qualified for that role than Ambassador John Bolton.

Larry Craig: A Case for Donald Trump - Muslim Immigration

CHQ reader and author Larry A. Craig says bringing Muslims into our country could be the single worst mistake in our nation’s history. Our nation will bend to their will, first through polite accommodation, then through demands for equality and fairness, and then frankly you will be afraid not to give them everything they want because, frankly, you will be afraid of what will happen if you don’t. Bad laws can be undone.  Bad taxes and bad trade policies can be undone.  Bad immigration cannot. Donald Trump is the only candidate for president who has talked about stopping, even if only temporarily, Muslim immigration to America.

Larry Craig: A Case for Donald Trump, Part 2

Larry Craig says our elected officials seem to have forgotten the purpose of government in our country.  One thing that it is not for is for the government to do something and then tell the American people to like it.  Our government officials and elected representatives need to have a copy of the beginning of our Constitution printed out and mounted on their desks.  It provides a 6-point checklist for everything they do, and allowing unlimited immigration is contrary to almost every point.

Larry Craig: A Case for Donald Trump, Part 1

Larry Craig says, "For me there are five issues that are the iceberg sinking the ship.  And if the ship sinks, nothing else is going to matter.  In each case, Donald Trump is either the only one who understands the problem, has the right solution to fix the problem, or is the only one I believe will actually do what is needed to fix the problem."

Rep: Repeal NAFTA to Punish Mexico

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Rep. Candice Miller (R) said that Mexico is doing nothing while kids are hopping on "death trains" from Central Amer. that go through Mexico. She suggested repealing NAFTA and withholding aide.

Amnesty and Paul Ryan's Presidential Ambitions

Along with Paul Ryan’s fine personal qualities comes a penchant for granting deference to the interests of the establishment GOP’s corporate paymasters and thereby alienating the two blocks of voters Republicans must have to win: Reagan Democrats and Tea Party movement voters. To arm yourself intellectually for the battle over amnesty and illegal immigration, watch the videos in our “Short Course” on amnesty and immigration and be sure to sign our "no amnesty" petition. 

Amnesty Only A Priority For A Failing President

House Republicans must wake-up to the threat to the future of this country and their own political futures posed by the false urgency behind the passage of S. 744 or a similar amnesty proposal.  The real priorities of American voters and their families remain jobs and the economy, neither of which are advanced by caving-in to the demands of the cheap labor wing of the business community or the political ambitions of Marco Rubio and Barack Obama. 

House Republicans will discuss immigration reform in a conference TODAY, Wednesday, July 10. Call your Congressman’s office (Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and tell them to OPPOSE bringing S. 744, the Obama – Rubio immigration amnesty bill, or any other amnesty plan to the House floor.
