Conservative Leaders Tell Department Of Labor To Pull Our Pension Money Out Of Communist China

“The investment of private retirement funds into Chinese companies that do not comply with basic transparency standards, and in many cases rely upon child- and slave-labor, is incompatible with fundamental American values and must be discontinued.” The repugnant practice of investing U.S. pension funds in Communist China makes unwitting private U.S. retirees investors in Chinese companies which use child- and slave-labor, “effectively making individual 401(k) owners or pensioners parties to and profiteers from the exploitation of the victims of such cruel abuse.”

What we still don't know about the Michael Flynn case

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The public needs to know more details about the way the FBI handled the politically sensitive case. And even more specifically, how do we know what Flynn said in that interview on Jan. 24? Is it any wonder why Republicans have had questions about the Flynn prosecution? Now, it appears to have come to nothing with the Justice Department's move to drop the case against Flynn. But even if Judge Emmet Sullivan, as expected, dismisses the charges, there are still things, important things, the public needs to know about the case — like what, precisely, was said during that fateful interview at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017?

We're Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

When Trump came in, he had no Rolodex of experienced executive hands to both protect him and to crush his enemies. We saw how that inexperience hurt him early on as the libs exploited it. Exhibit A is how LTG Flynn trusted the FBI bureaucracy. Trump is now surrounded by ruthless and seasoned D.C. operators who know how to play the game. The Dems and their garbage media serfs’ edge early on was that they were up against novices. No more. One need only watch how Kayleigh McEnany imposed her iron discipline upon that pipsqueak reporter then cruised off the podium, leaving him sobbing like the pathetic loser he is.

Piecing together the ‘phony’ case against Michael Flynn

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Rep. Adam Schiff didn’t want the public to realize that top members of the Obama administration had blown the collusion narrative to smithereens. One after another, James Clapper, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates and others said some version of “I know of no evidence linking the Trump campaign to Russia.” This was terrible news for Schiff, who released the documents only because the White House threatened to if he didn’t. Schiff, recall, relentlessly insisted he had seen lots of collusion evidence. Maybe he needs an eye test. Clearly, there is no such evidence because there was no collusion.

Why Michael Flynn Was Set Up

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Bringing down Flynn was a two-for, striking a blow at the new president while hopefully helping preserve Barack Obama's Iran Deal. The second part didn’t work, but the first did… for a while. It’s therefore not totally surprising that the newly-revealed documents have “SCO “ (Special Counsels Office) scrawled on them, among other incriminating notes. That means these statements exculpating Trump’s newly-appointed National Security Adviser went to Mueller’s office where someone (Mueller? Weissman?) ignored them and continued with what Trump has colloquially, and I think too loosely, branded a “hoax.” It was far more than that.

The dishonest pursuit of Michael Flynn

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Today, more than two years since a federal judge ordered the government to hand over evidence that might exonerate Gen. Michael Flynn, do we finally see just how dishonest and conniving federal investigators were in pursuing him. These goons, you see, were not after justice or the truth or enforcing laws enacted to protect national security. They were entirely focused on punishing a political enemy. Why waste time with all the hurdles and loopholes of a legal prosecution when you can punish the man by getting him fired and leaving him financially destitute? Oh, and screw his silly military service. That holds no currency in this town.

Democrats need to recruit Obama to bench Biden, find another candidate

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Looking isolated and lapsing into occasional gibberish, Biden seemed ­every bit the mentally challenged 77-year-old he was on the worst days of the campaign. Although he did better on a CNN virtual town hall Friday, his tics, such as having a three-point answer to every question, do not inspire confidence that he is capable of being president. So what can Dems do? Find another nominee. But first, they must bench Biden, or persuade him to bench himself. It’s a job for Barack Obama. Obama could pitch withdrawal as a final public service to country and party. For all we know, members of Biden’s family share the idea and would welcome Obama’s intervention.

Obama to Trump: You Didn’t Build That Economy

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obama’s balderdash about ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) explains the growth in manufacturing jobs over which Trump has presided. During the Obama years, 300,000 manufacturing jobs disappeared. When Trump pledged to bring them back, Obama claimed that he would need a magic wand to accomplish this — yet somehow nearly 500,000 such jobs have been added to the economy since Trump took office. Will the Democrats give Obama credit for creating jobs he said weren’t coming back? Probably. But it won’t fly. The voters can see the difference between the Democratic malaise under Obama and the subsequent improvement in their day-to-day lives. They know Trump did indeed build this economy.

'Conservative Obama,' pregnant men and other liberal media fantasies

Robert Knight, Washington Times

For Marxists, a lie is as good as truth if it works to advance their cause. A case in point was a recent nearly full-page article on the front page of The Washington Post’s Outlook section, where the headline proclaimed: “Barack Obama: Conservative.” Sure. And Bernie Sanders is moderate. When an entire generation is taught that truth is subjective, and that the only god they should heed is their feelings, they’ll fall for anything. Orwell warned in his dystopian novel “1984” about an all-powerful state suppressing the truth. Although no original citation has been unearthed, he’s been widely quoted as saying, “speaking the truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.” We’d better do so while it’s still mostly legal in America.

Let’s Say A Thanksgiving Prayer For 2020

By electing Donald Trump, we, and our country, in effect survived the long harsh winter of the Obama years, but there’s no guarantee that we will succeed in our goal of governing America according to limited government constitutional conservative principles. To do that will require many more years of hard work.

Why Republicans Won’t Abandon Trump

Trump haters are confounded by Trump supporters. They ask, “If you believe it’s true that Trump does sketchy things, why don’t you care?” They ask the same question about the climate: “You concede that the climate is changing, so why won’t you do something about it?” The answer: You first.

Trump economy surges and Biden and Obama hog the credit

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

With the economy surging, all of a sudden, it is just Mr. Obama’s doing. The double standard here is so transparent that only someone suffering from TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — would miss it. If the economy were crashing today, the left would say that it’s all Mr. Trump’s fault. But with the economy doing quite well, Mr. Obama gets the credit. The biggest threat to the economy right now is that we repeal the Trump growth policies and return to Obamanomics. This is what Mr. Biden is promising, and if it comes to pass we will learn the bitter lesson that the good old days under Mr. Obama — really weren’t so good at all.

Killing Biden -- to salvage Obama

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

What is this all about? It is a cover-up, plain and simple. Whom, you ask, are they trying to cover for? Their next political savior who can take down Mr. Trump? Certainly not former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. If anything, Mr. Biden has been set ablaze atop the altar as a sacrifice in this massive international cover-up by Democrats. The sleaze and dishonesty and self-dealing that oozes from the Biden name these days will leave a permanent stain on his nearly half-century political career. Do you think Republicans might like to question Mr. Brennan or Mr. Clapper under oath? Of course they would. But Mrs. Pelosi will never let them get that close to Mr. Obama.

Lindsey Graham Gets The Kurds And Syria Backwards

Senator Graham has a point about the government of Turkey’s enmity toward an independent Kurdistan and the danger a Turkish incursion poses to independence-minded Kurds, but he has it all backwards about the United States “abandoning” the Kurds.

Trump's Conservative Policies Launch Boom For Middle America

Stephen Moore’s recent Wall Street Journal column clearly refutes the charge by Democrats that only millionaires and billionaires have benefited from President Trump’s economic policies. But it is also a devastating indictment of the Bush and Obama policies which resulted in nearly two decades of lost economic progress for Middle America.

Retribution by Obama officials keeps courageous congressman in prison

Rebecca Hagelin, Washington Times

Steve Stockman is an American hero who had the guts to expose corruption at the highest levels. If the abuses of power that now leave him shackled are not investigated and prosecuted, then who will ever dare question the leftist power mongers in the future? If his conviction is not overturned or pardoned, then Mr. Obama, Ms. Lerner and the liberal cronies who walked free from their own crimes will have succeeded in crushing a good man who fought to hold them accountable. Steve Stockman worked on behalf of all Americans who are sick and tired of dirty politicians. Every lawmaker who cares about true justice and their own honor has a duty to fight for Steve Stockman.

Trumping Obama: A Must-Have Book for the 2020 Election

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The book is a must-have for Trump supporters for the coming presidential election. It is the best compendium I have seen of all the president's achievements in overcoming what we might call Obamaism and more. It's all here in Margolis’ book from the obvious (pulling out of the Iran Deal and the Paris Climate Accords) to the obscure I couldn't remember having happened at all (reversing Obama's military surplus rule, whatever that was). You are reminded just how much Obama actually did with his phone and his pen, as he put it, and just how hard Trump had to work to reverse it. Thankfully, Barack almost always bypassed Congress, so Trump could too.

ICYMI: April’s Great Economic News

Not that we believe in or promote “conspiracy theories,” you know, like the one that the Trump campaign was spied upon by a corrupt Obama-era FBI and intelligence apparatus. But there is one conspiracy we are convinced exits, and that is that the establishment media refuses to report good economic news.

Joe Biden and restoring the old (pre-Trump) order

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Biden stands ahead of the field. Democrats know how old he is, they know he has lost in the past, and they still like him. There's a truism that elections are always about the future, not the past. That's often the case. But what if it isn't this time? A lot of political truisms did not hold up in the 2016 election, which was won by a man with another promise of restoration, to "Make America Great Again." Now, many Democrats seem happy to support a candidate who pledges to take them back a few years. Again, that could change, but for the moment, it shows how many Democrats yearn to return to a time before Trump.

Joe Biden Cuddle Studio Franchising Opportunity

Cuddle studios advertise they provide nourishment for the soul through laughter, compassionate listening, and above all else, an incredible grounding energy. However, the competition in the nascent cuddling industry is about to become even fiercer with the entry of a new market-maker: The Joe Biden Cuddle Studio franchise operation.
