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 self-promotion, the White House Correspondents Association dinner is hardly a “tradition” in the sense most Americans think of our national traditions, such as turkey for Thanksgiving dinner or fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Democrats elect a socialist as party chair, still don’t get what went wrong in 2016. Plus, Sour poll numbers likely mask the reality that is a successful Donald Trump, and, Media depicts Trump as a hapless buffoon, rings of George W. Bush.

President Trump’s team reported great beginnings for his conservative agenda to the thousands of conservatives assembled at CPAC, however, something was definitely missing.

HUD’s upward mobility programs are bound to fail because they contain no mechanism for helping people build economic success.  Rather than accept the fundamental truth that mental attitude and job opportunities are key to financial advancement, HUD always seems to conclude that financial lack is the result of discrimination.

President Trump’s address to Congress next Tuesday will call on Republicans to get busy moving the agenda. Plus, Donald Trump’s management style encourages people to express their views, and, Democrats dredge up Anita Hill to dis on Trump for being anti-woman.

It is time this investigation became a national security investigation and the FBI and counterintelligence agencies replaced the politics-tainted Capitol Police as the lead agency investigating how House Democrats handed over the backdoor to the House computer network to a Hezbollah cell laundering its money through a car dealership and a crooked Iranian doctor.

Tea Party activists will hold a rally in DC on March 15, but the major focus of the action for this day is to act as citizen lobbyists and visit Congressional offices in person. Wouldn’t it be great if conservatives could flood Capitol Hill with supporters of the President’s nominees and agenda?

Democrats continue to believe they can run only against Trump next year and still win; they’re wrong. Plus, The stellar immigration news out of Washington makes it feel a lot like Christmas, and, The left’s Astroturf town hall protests will likely backfire on Democrats.

Contrary to what Senator McCain said about dictatorship starting by suppressing a free press, it is not hard to see parallels between today’s free, but highly politicized establishment elite media, and the media in Germany that helped the Nazis take power.

Neil Gorsuch’s likable personality is making it harder for Democrats to find reasons to reject him. Plus, Leftist kooks want Trump impeached but Democrat leaders balk at the timing, and, The Midwest moves further Republican due in part to Trump keeping his word.

    If his presidency is to succeed, he must gain the cooperation of a disturbingly recalcitrant Republican Congress for his programs and this is the time to do it, to remind the skittish members what the public voted for. Soaring rhetoric, optimistic or not, the bashing of the "dishonest media," justified as that may be, and the recitation of past achievements, worthy as many may be, are all beside the point now.

  • Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

    Among other things, what the dust-up over President Trump’s non-appearance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner has revealed is that presidents of the United States are used as the main attraction to fund a scholarship program that, in turn, funds young liberal journalists, the particular irony being that Republican Presidents have been essentially used to perpetuate the liberal media bias that they and their supporters so frequently complain of.

    Including refugees from all nations, 6,095 came in during Trump's first month. He has ordered that refugee admissions be cut from 110,000 to 50,000. The courts haven't challenged that. In the first month, 45 percent of the refugees into the United States came from the seven targeted nations, said Pew.

  • Michael Ledeen, Forbes

    President Trump should expect ongoing attacks against himself and his team.  His enemies, inside and outside the system, have been encouraged to up the ante.  Yes, the new security advisor is a terrific man, but the political risk of Trump’s cabinet is far greater than it was a couple of weeks ago.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    To this point in the administration’s early days, it has admirably stood for a return to the rule of law in immigration enforcement. Attorney General Sessions could strike a blow for the return of constitutional principle by encouraging the high court to throw out groundless convictions and put an end to the responsible-corporate-officer doctrine.

  • Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller

    Politifact decided to fact-check one of Trump’s tweets Sunday and found that “the numbers check out.” The “fact-checking” site then rated the same tweet “mostly false.” Politifact writer Aaron Sharockman quoted various experts who said that Trump’s administration is unlikely to be behind the decrease in debt and that Trump is focusing on the wrong set of numbers.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    A new federalism—a devolution of power and resources away from Washington and back to states, cities, towns and citizens, to let them resolve their problems their own way and according to their own principles—may be the price of retention of the American Union.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    They are all San Francisco Democrats now, and they are in no mood to take the advice of adopting a “big tent” that they once self-servingly dispensed to defeated Republicans. The Democrats used to make fun of the routed Barry Goldwater for having said that “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” But their rallying cry against Trump, with a few modifications, sounds similar. Call it extremism in the defense of liberalism, with the only vice being the willingness to recognize one.

  • 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.

  • Gabby Morrongiello, Washington Examiner

    Vice President Mike Pence, who was awarded the Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award at CPAC, said he knew from the moment he agreed to serve as Trump's second-in-command that "our president would reignite [the conservative] cause and renew it in our own day."

  • Fred Fleitz, Fox News

    Democratic House members have some difficult questions to answer about this case aside from which Democratic members may have granted the IT staffers waivers from background investigations. Which members originally hired these individuals? Who referred them? And why didn’t House Democrats tighten their computer security practices after the hacking of DNC and Clinton campaign emails last year?

  • Rebecca Berg, Real Clear Politics

    Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton was the first person to float Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as a candidate for National Security Adviser. His recommendation carried unusual sway: With Trump’s loyal wingman Jeff Sessions having retired from the Senate to run the Department of Justice, Cotton very well might be the administration’s new favorite senator.

  • Michael Patrick Leahy, Breitbart

    Trump nominated General John Kelly as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, and he was confirmed January 20, but much of the implementation of the department’s policies is still controlled by holdover bureaucrats. Until they are removed, sources say, the Department of Homeland Security will not come close to implementing President Trump’s agenda, even with Kelly at the top of the organization.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    Battling the Left is necessary work for conservatism, but it can't become its heart. The appeal of celebrities willing to tear mercilessly into the Left is clear, but also dangerous, especially as some of those chosen to do so never bothered to ground themselves in real conservatism. If conservatism defines itself mainly as being against the Left, if it pulls up its philosophical roots and does not adhere to its real values, it could doom itself to radicalism.

    By welcoming a historic number of asylum-seekers proportionate to its population, Sweden has indeed embarked on a vast social experiment that wasn’t well thought out and isn’t going very well. The unrest in the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby after police made an arrest the other night underscored the problems inherent in Sweden’s immigration surge.
