Unions Plan Far-Left “National Day of Disruption” Today

The irony of today’s protests is that by demanding that illegal aliens be allowed to remain in the workforce the protesters are protesting in favor of one of the greatest wage depressing factors in today’s economy.

Transition to Trump: Establishment seeks to divide conservatives over Mitt Romney

As Donald Trump prepares to meet with Mitt Romney a second time, it’s clear the GOP establishment is intent on picking a fight with conservatives. Plus, The Left’s stupid recount strategy marches into Pennsylvania, and, Karl Rove rips Kellyanne Conway over Romney controversy.

#NeverRomney Mr. Trump, Don’t Betray Your Base

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Let’s be clear – it isn’t that Mitt Romney would get in the way of draining the swamp – it is that he, and other establishment Republicans like him, ARE the swamp. 

Hillary’s Popular Vote Holdouts on Collision Course with History

Laura Ingraham, Lifezette

Trying to declare Hillary Clinton the winner because she won the popular vote is like saying that we should decide football games by which team has the most yards, or a baseball game by which team has the most hits.

Welcome to the Party of Trump

Stephen Moore, The American Spectator

What Donald Trump achieved on election night was to topple the legacies of three family dynasties all at once: the Clintons, the Bushes, and the Obamas. They were the troika of big losers in 2016. Trump didn’t topple the Reagan legacy of growth, optimism, and peace through strength. If the Age of Trump is to be a success, he will build on and modernize that legacy.

No, Conservatism Should Not Embrace Populism

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Populism cannot change the fact that government is incapable of solving problems upstream of government — problems of culture and complexity that government amelioration efforts, however well-intentioned, often make worse.

Cruz Explains 'The Most Catastrophic Thing Republicans Could Do'

Susan Jones, CNS News

"I've got to say, if we don't -- if we're given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don't deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets. And I think quite rightly. I think people are so fed up with Washington." Cruz said Trump is assembling an "impressive, serious team" to help him govern the country.

Trump vs. the White House Press Corps

Ari Fleischer, Wall Street Journal

The White House press secretary used to decide who got what seats, but this authority was given to the White House Correspondents Association in the middle of the George W. Bush administration. Nothing prohibits the incoming administration from taking it back. The valuable West Wing real estate occupied by the White House press corps isn’t the property of the press. It belongs to the U.S. government.

Will Donald Trump do for infrastructure what he did for Wollman Rink?

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Trump's proposal for massive infrastructure spending holds out the opportunity to transform government spending programs much as he transformed the process of building an ice skating rink in the beautiful infrastructure Frederick Olmstead designed built in the time of the Civil War.

The Phony Recount: The Far-Left’s Real Strategy

Of course, it is easier to blame hacking or some kind of vote fraud than it is for Democrats to look in the mirror and honestly assess why they were so decisively defeated, but that’s not what is really going on here.

Transition to Trump: Is Donald Trump keeping his enemies a little too close for comfort?

Donald Trump is drawing praise for considering former political foes for his administration, but is he taking it too far? Plus, Laura Ingraham would be Trump’s press secretary, but wants more, and, Clinton campaign’s joining of fruitless recount efforts signals sour grapes.

The ‘Big Lie’ Is Back

Frank Gaffney, Breitbart

Much in evidence among such “old-fashioned techniques” now being employed by the left is what’s known as “the Big Lie.” It entails the endless repetition of outrageous falsehoods to defame, and ultimately silence, one’s political opponents.

Trumping the Media: Donald Continually Confounds the MSM

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

Trump circumvented the media altogether when he released via YouTube a clip of him outlining some of the things he hoped to accomplished in his first 100 days. It all revolved around a "simple core principle," i.e., "putting America first." What a novel idea, but not one that Wolf Blitzer or Chris Matthews can get his head around.

The Heritage Foundation is Trump’s shadow transition team

Katie Glueck, Politico

“We’re just thrilled with what we see from the transition, it gets better every day. To the extent Heritage is involved in it, hats off to Heritage,” said Richard Viguerie. “Conservatives would expect Heritage to be at the center of anything that’s important to dealing with conservative issues, causes, the movement.”

The Importance of Jared Kushner

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

All this angst over the potential presence of President-elect Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner in the Trump White House is so much baloney. Literally from the beginnings of the presidency one president after another has turned to a family member or sometimes multiples of family members as official or unofficial confidantes in their White House. Sometimes with portfolio, sometimes not — but always with influence and power in the White House.

Trump 'seriously considering' Ben Carson for HUD secretary

Gabby Morrongiello, Washington Examiner

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is under active consideration to be the next secretary of Housing and Urban Development, President-elect Trump said Tuesday. "I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I've gotten to know him well — he's a greatly talented person who loves people," Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The Tsunami the Media Never Saw Coming

Bernard Goldberg, Real Clear Politics

I was a correspondent at CBS News for 28 years. So I speak with some credibility, I think, when I say that too many journalists are smug. And during this recent campaign, they dismissed the angst of ordinary Americans who they never really liked or respected anyway. And on Election Day, ordinary Americans rejected them, the journalists who didn't see the tsunami coming.

Tomorrow Let’s Give Thanks For The End Of The Beginning

This Thanksgiving, perhaps most importantly of all, we should give thanks for the patriotic Americans, who turned-out in their millions to take their country back from the anti-constitutional forces that have been let loose for the past eight years.

The Real Goal of the Anti-Trump Riots – Eliminate the Electoral College and the Constitution Part Two of Two

To understand the Electoral College one must realize that the Founders considered the states as the dominate power in the nation. The great mistake Electoral College opponents make is to believe the President was supposed to be elected by the people. It was never the plan.

Transition to Trump: Should Donald Trump keep his promise to throw Hillary in jail?

Signs indicate Trump will show leniency to Crooked Hillary -- reaction varies. Plus, Poll shows Americans believe Trump will bring change, but many still need convincing, and, Rumors persist of “faithless electors” derailing a Trump presidency, but they won’t get far.
