Donald Trump

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.

Minnesota Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Phillip Parrish Gets It

Phillip Parrish, a Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate is being criticized for saying he does not consider Islam to be a faith and that it is "the antithesis of the Constitution." Finally, a national political candidate who gets the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Cheerleader in chief Trump deserves credit for great things he’s done

Leftists like those in the women’s march will continue taking to the streets to protest Trump but they’re looking more pathetic with each passing day. Republicans should keep advocating for the Trump agenda with the confidence Americans will make the right decisions come November.

Nationalism or Democracy?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

“The best test of truth,” said Oliver Wendell Holmes, “is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.” But in our world, more and more people believe, and rightly so, that truth exists independent of whether people accept or reject it. And there are matters, like the preservation of a unique people and nation, that are too important to be left to temporary majorities to decide.

Conservatives Want Trump to Be Trump

More than 54% of conservatives responding to the FedUp PAC poll take the position that Trump “should continue to say the same thing in the same way about merit-based immigration.” Another 39% agree with Trump about the necessity of moving to merit-based immigration but say that he “should be more careful about the language he uses.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Swamp creatures fighting fiercely to preserve big government in DC

Trump shouldn’t let the Democrats off the hook. If America’s elected officials are ever going to address the nation’s issues – including the national debt – they need to stop making excuses and face reality. Neither Trump nor the process is the problem; it’s DC’s swamp mentality.

Trump’s merit-based immigration system

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Washington Times

President Trump ran for office arguing for a merit-based system that lets in the best and the brightest but turns away criminals — even if they do have a relative here. It’s a commonsense idea. After all, employers don’t roll dice when deciding who they want to hire. Our incredible military doesn’t draw straws when deciding whom to accept. But for some reason, when we’re picking new Americans — the future of this country — our government uses a randomized lottery system and chain migration.

Trump Moves to Defend Religious Rights of Doctors

David Catron, The American Spectator

In addition to expanding its Office for Civil Rights by creating the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, HHS has announced a new regulation that will protect care providers from being coerced into performing medical procedures, including abortions, that violate their consciences. The new OCR division and conscience regulation will enforce existing laws that were routinely violated or simply ignored by the bureaucrats of the Obama administration.

The Furious Fake News of Feminist Novelists

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Since 1973, liberal feminists have celebrated the "right to choose abortion" without admitting the horror — over 60 million lives have violently and prematurely ended since the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade. The liberals who champion abortion are far more comfortable panicking that abortion "rights" are always in danger, especially when Republicans control Washington. So it's not surprising that a hot trend among novelists is feminist themes, like imagining the terror of abortions banned.

Trump's first year proves we are incredibly fortunate to have him as our president

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

The first year has seen some disappointments. Failing to repeal ObamaCare was painful. Not getting started on infrastructure has been disappointing. Failing to develop conservative solutions for poverty in America has been unfortunate. Allowing symbolic language and arguments about race to drive people apart has been counter to the promise inherent in President Trump’s Inaugural Address. However, on balance, it is fair to say President Trump has already achieved so much that he rivals Reagan as an effective, focused leader. We are incredibly fortunate to have him in the White House as our nation’s 45th president.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s Fake News awards a wake-up call to biased American media

Donald Trump isn’t Joseph Stalin. There’s no Gulag waiting beyond the Blue Ridge for reporters who say things critical to the administration. In his “Fake News Awards” Trump also praised “many great reporters;” the people will be the judge on who’s in the right on this one.

Trump protects pro-life consciences

Editors, Washington Examiner

Although Trump’s commitment to the pro-life cause has previously been doubted by many pro-lifers, he has made the right choice here in safeguarding government respect for the moral judgment of medical professionals. As today’s marchers exercise their First Amendment rights, they can take heart in that, at least.

Dickie Durbin Does DACA

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

With Trump in the White House you won’t have national monuments shut down or military payroll not met; he’s going to define “essential” functions of the government differently than Obama did. In fact, most Americans probably wouldn’t notice a government shutdown at all. But the ones who will probably won’t like the thought that it’s happening out of homage to illegal aliens at their expense. And they might like it even less if they believe Durbin trumped up a lie as a smokescreen for the whole thing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: One year later the Donald Trump experiment is working like a charm

Republicans and Donald Trump aren’t the only ones who have relationships to repair. The media will blow any potential intraparty GOP differences way out of proportion. A year after President Trump was inaugurated the establishment is on the run and the party is largely unified.

The Media's Year of Trump Hating

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Journalists often talk about President Trump's "war on the media" and can't possibly discuss the media's war on President Trump. When the president attacks the media, that's an attack on democracy. When the media undermine the president, that's the full flowering of democracy. Removing the statements made by Trump and other politicians, 90 percent of evening-news Trump evaluations were negative, and only 10 percent were positive.

Trump's Not a Racist; He's a 'Scorch'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Our scorch-in-chief, being constantly under attack for matters large and small, almost always fights back in the grand tradition of all scorches. Called a racist ad infinitum, he struck back the other day with some interesting facts on that greatest of playing fields for the modern scorch -- Twitter. "Unemployment for Black Americans is the lowest ever recorded. Trump approval ratings with Black Americans has doubled. Thank you, and it will get even (much) better!"

What’s the Point of Labeling Trump a Racist?

Ben Shapiro, National Review

None of this excuses Trump’s idiotic and obscene statements. And none of it means that the media are wrong to criticize those statements. But applying the “racist” tag to Trump as a human being isn’t journalism. It’s laziness and opportunism masquerading as bravery. And it only alienates Americans who would prefer to analyze events and statements with clear eyes, rather than through the prism of Trump’s supposed bigotry.

Good News vs. Private Conversations

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Last week the headlines should have abounded with the year’s good news. Instead the headlines—and the cable news stories — abounded with a private remark made by our President — or perhaps not made by our President; he denies making it. I am not particularly disturbed by our passionate and earthy 45th President’s resort to salty language in discussing what kinds of immigration legislation are desirable for the United States. Though I think there are more important issues to discuss and even celebrate. As I have said, how about that economy!

Jeff Flake, Not Donald Trump, Is The Real Threat To Constitutional Liberty

What drives Senator Flake’s animus toward President Trump is not a love of constitutional liberty – it is that the American people, in their righteous indignation over the abuses they have suffered for the past several decades, have finally withdrawn their consent to the kind of government that was being imposed upon them by the establishment political parties, and their allies among the media and cultural elite.
