No other nation today poses a greater danger to American national security than China, a state engaged in an unprecedented campaign of information warfare using both massive cyberattacks and influence operations aimed at diminishing what Beijing regards as its most important strategic enemy – the United States of America.
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.
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.
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. The cleavages between interest groups, Senate Democrats, and the White House were wide and easily avoided. Their performance gives the appearance of flat-footedness.
The media’s unceasing campaign to bring down Trump will most certainly result in their own demise. Plus, Thursday was another good day for Trump’s nominees before Senate committees, and, Mike Lee says he would accept a Supreme Court appointment, Trump should seriously consider it.
During the campaign, the opponents of Donald Trump focused on exploiting every opportunity to portray him as a bigot. This one-dimensional, overwrought, tired, and ultimately unsuccessful line of attack is very similar to the strategy now being employed by the opponents of Sessions's confirmation. At a time when 73% of American voters believe that politicians raise racial issues only to get elected, this strategy is virtually certain to fail.
Booker had nothing to say about Sessions's personal and private views on race. He had no secrets about Sessions to reveal. His opposition turned out to be a disagreement over policy. A liberal, Booker objected to Sessions's conservative views. For those eager to derail the Sessions nomination, this had to be a letdown. As soon as Booker finished his testimony, the air went out of the anti-Sessions balloon.

The confirmation fight over Session has been intense, but it is merely a prelude to the domestic Cold War confrontation we will see over Supreme Court nominations. If Trump names pro-life constitutionalists — as he has promised — the battle cry then must be taken from Ronald Reagan: We win, they lose.
Upon spotting Sessions with one of his multiracial granddaughters sitting on his lap as he waited for the proceedings to begin, MTV News "culture writer" Ira Madison III tweeted a photo of them and snarked: "Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys 'R' Us you stole her from." So much for liberals celebrating diversity. So much for Michelle Obama's rallying cry to the left that "our motto is, when they go low, we go high."
For the most part, Jeff Sessions’ confirmation hearings lacked fireworks and drama – and that’s a good thing. Plus, Contrary to claims, Trump has surrounded himself with plenty of people who will tell him “no”, and, Protestors plotting to disrupt Trump’s inauguration should be ignored.

Far from making money off of government service, many of Trump’s nominees are showing great personal sacrifices. Plus, Blatantly unfair media magnifying Dems’ fearmongering over Trump cabinet nominees, and, Trump’s nominees get the full treatment in preparation for hearings.
Mike Pence and the new White House Staff are primed to make America great again. Plus, Jeff Sessions will survive confirmation with his name and reputation intact, and, Too bizarre not to be true – some Democrats still weighing objections to the Electoral College vote.
Chuck Schumer hopes to derail the Trump train before the new president even takes office. Plus, Americans still deeply divided over the direction of the country under Trump, and, Trump fills out White House staff, sets the wheels in motion to deal with Obamacare on day one.
All’s well in Washington, four former presidents will now attend Trump’s inauguration. Plus, Donald Trump is thinking long-term in narrowing down his list of potential Supreme Court nominees, and, Conservatives will have to trust Trump on his trade policy and nominations.
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.

Is Obama getting to Trump or is it the other way around? Plus, Is Trump bowing to leftist pressure by seeking out a Hispanic cabinet member?, and, We’ve reached the end of 2016 and it’s been a heck of a year.
The left tried a similar routine with John Ashcroft when he was nominated to lead the Justice Department 16 years ago. They tried to paint him as a racist for writing for a journal called the Southern Partisan. But eight Democrats crossed party lines to make it an easy confirmation vote. History is bound to repeat itself, but that won't stop these character assassins from trying.
