Sourpuss Democrats Self-Immolate at State of the Union

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi watching Trump's speech looked like a pair of sullen six-year olds on a sugar crash the day after Halloween. Bernie Sanders looked mummified. Schumer was slumped so deeply in his chair he was almost falling through the crack. Other Democrats, even ones who should have known better or secretly felt otherwise, sat on their hands. You could see them glancing at each other, wondering whether they were allowed to applaud or stand up. What a bunch of cowards.

The Most Important Thing Trump Said That No One Is Talking About

There was one very important “this changes everything” moment in President Trump’s State of the Union message that no one is talking about – the President’s announcement that he has signed an Executive Order on Protecting America Through Lawful Detention of Terrorists.

CHQ and Ear to the Ground Survey Reveals Trump Supporters Will Not Support President On Amnesty

Trump supporters couldn’t be clearer: 71% of his base they will no longer support the President if amnesty is included in immigration reform. However, they also said they are confident President Trump will follow-through on his campaign promises regarding immigration.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ inane SOTU spoiled brat act will not go unnoticed by voters

Trump’s SOTU address wasn’t perfect but it deserved a better reception from roughly half of those in attendance. Democrats didn’t do themselves any favors by acting like spoiled children in front of the whole world. Americans aren’t unified – but the right side is winning.

The Sound of One Aisle Clapping

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

What is the sound of one aisle clapping at the most basic and blameless expressions of nationalism, the nationalism that every functioning country on earth observes? Americans heard it Tuesday night. The Democrats couldn’t clap for the flag or fighting gangs (that elicited a groan from some of them). It couldn’t clap for the national anthem, secure borders, religious liberty, even vocational training. It saw poison everywhere, though they did perk up at Trump’s mention of second chances for criminals.

The Elephant In The Room Last Night

There were many things conservatives could applaud in last night’s State of the Union address, but the President’s eloquent paean to the economic promise of America was largely drowned-out by opposition to the notion of giving a path to citizenship to 1.8 million illegal aliens.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s first SOTU leaves Democrats speechless…and hopeless

Donald Trump may not be the messenger everyone wanted but the message is what counts these days. Trump’s first State of the Union speech should be considered a smashing success – but what else would you expect from a man who swore America would start winning again if he were elected president. Mission accomplished.

Desperation Time As Democrats Seek to Stop Trump From Succeeding

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The simple fact is that Donald Trump’s unlikely presidency has become an unlikely success. The economy is booming. He’s doing what he promised with foreign policy and regulations. He’s outmaneuvered the Democrats again and again on illegal aliens. He’s got the momentum. And the liberals are desperate to stop him – no matter how much doing so will hurt Normal Americans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Even Donald Trump needs an occasional reminder of who his friends are

It’s highly unlikely Donald Trump will gain many supporters among the leftist illegal alien crowd no matter what he says tonight. History proves they aren’t his friends. Therefore there’s little to be gained by reversing Trump’s campaign promise to deal with the immigration problem.

Democrats Are the New Palestinians on Immigration

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democrats are in the reactionary position of having to wish for or engineer an American economic failure to make their even more reactionary policies succeed. Pathetic, no? But all is not lost for them.  All they need is a little new leadership.  Perhaps Mahmoud Abbas would be willing to immigrate and come work for them. There's no one better at obstructionist policies. Of course, he'd have to stand in line.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Trump masterfully set the stage for a SOTU address for the ages

All eyes are on President Trump this week to see where issue discussions will lead. It could be a battle to the death over immigration is a fight Republicans should make. One way or another the president has set the stage for what promises to be a State of the Union speech to remember.

Trump Amnesty Disaster

While the White House proposal technically ends chain migration and the lottery, it uses ALL those visas to bring in the 4 million people on the visa waiting list.  That means current immigration levels will continue for the next 10-15 years or more AND amnesty will be granted to a minimum of 1.8 million illegals.  These are permanent changes to America's electorate. If this passes the Trump proposal will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Laugh At The Democrats As They Die On Amnesty Hill

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Almost in spite of itself, the Republicans have a winning issue here, assuming they don’t revert to form and let the Squish Caucus weasel them into squandering it. Next November, the GOP is going to carpet bomb the Dems with ads asking voters to choose either the party that doubled their 401(k) or the party that wants to raise their taxes and that closes down the government to extort citizenship for illegal aliens.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: NFL’s AMVETS ad snub proves management learned nothing this season

The NFL would be doing America’s inner cities a favor by honoring the flag and those who serve it instead of denying basic free speech rights under the guise of political correctness. The days come and go but apparently Roger Goodell and company learned nothing from this season.

Trump Snatching Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory On Immigration

The current level of immigration, even without amnesty, will add nearly 15 million new Left-leaning voters to our polity. Add to that amnesty for millions of mostly Mexican and Central American DACA beneficiaries and Trump will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Thanks to amnesty ‘Only in America’ now has a negative sound to it

Only in America is there a compassionate people who might grant them their wish and allow them to stay. Illegal aliens shouldn’t be angry – they should be thankful. A border wall and internal enforcement is the least Democrats should offer in exchange for permission to remain here.

Another day at work, another congressional tantrum

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Throwing tantrums and shutting down the government is a bipartisan sport. Both Republicans and Democrats have now thrown this particular tantrum, like children fighting over a toy, and it’s great fun only for the tantrum-throwers. Congress seems to have got the message this time, and all over Capitol Hill lethargic ladies and drowsy old men are shaking themselves awake, exhausted from their tantrum. Tantrum-throwing is hard work, as every parent has observed. Round 2 on Feb. 8 is only three weeks away.

Did We Just Say Paul Ryan Is Right?

Ryan is right to criticize the Senate for government by train wreck, the question is what is his Senate counterpart Mitch McConnell going to do about it? One idea is to embrace President Trump’s suggestion that the Senate do away with the 60-vote rule on spending bills, thus stripping the Democrats of their power to bring the country to a halt whenever they want to pander to their Leftwing base.
