Transition to Trump: A united GOP in 2017 means bad news for the Democrat agenda

There’s little doubt a united Republican Party is helping Donald Trump’s successful transition. Plus, Democrats’ astonishing racial hypocrisy distracts from their bias and corruption, and, John Lewis and black Democrats conspire to help the Russians achieve their aims.

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.

Which is pretty amazing considering the Senate Judiciary Committee is 90 percent white, more than 90 percent male and 100 percent ancient. We should start a campaign demanding that some of these guys voluntarily give up their seat on the committee to a minority. According to some of their own definitions, they must be racist!

For Democrats, 2017 Will Be The Year of Living Stupidly

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Everything Trump does will draw howls of anguish. Courageous hashtags like #TheResistance will spread across Twitter. The traditional media will whine all the way down as it falls towards irrelevance. And Trump will march on, heedless of his critics. 2017 has the potential to be awesome.

Transition to Trump: The prospect of change in 2017 makes it a very happy new year

It’s very hard to predict what government will look like at the end of 2017, but one thing’s for sure – it will be different than it is today.
