Ivanka Trump

Trump’s Original Sin

Steve Bannon's "60 Minutes" interview provided one sentence that explained most of President Trump's difficulties; “48 hours after we won” a fundamental decision was made to embrace the establishment because Trump needed to “govern.”

Steve Bannon and Scott Pruitt beat Kushner, Tillerson and Ivanka on Paris Agreement

Trump aligned himself with the conservative critics of the Paris Agreement in the end, consistent with his campaign promises last year. This group includes free-market activists who disapprove of resolving environmental problems through heavy-handed government regulations, Republicans from energy-producing states and climate change skeptics. But in his remarks explaining his decision, the president said it all came down to "America first."

'Complicit' First Daughters and Double Standards

Tim Graham, CNS News

The day before CBS launched into Ivanka Trump, it offered a typically fawning interview to Chelsea Clinton. No one has ever asked Chelsea Dearest whether she was "complicit" in her father's sexual offenses, or "complicit" in her family's corrupt foundation, even though she's a vice chair. Put the emphasis on "vice." One hopes there will be a learning moment here for Ivanka Trump. Sometimes the best response to a media request is to just say no.

If Ivanka Trump Were A Democrat, She’d Be A Feminist Hero

Nicole Russell, The Federalist

If anything, Ivanka should be a beacon of feminist light, a nepotism recipient just like the relatives of presidents before her, and a person whose security detail causes as much ruckus as former President Obama’s does. It seems asking the media to treat liberals and conservatives equally is pretty much a futile request. As a substitute, perhaps the media and Left can simply identify why they treat so duplicitously a woman who’s not even a conservative?

What President Trump Doesn’t Get About the Freedom Caucus

What President Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when establishment Republicans talk about “governing” and “legislating” what they really mean is growing government at a slightly slower pace or to benefit a different set of cronies than the Democrats would if they were in power.

CHQ Receives White House Briefing

My overall impression after the meeting was that the White House is very engaged and committed to pushing the President’s government reform and spending priorities. Whether the President pushes his priorities through a tweet storm or by turning on his legendary sales skills remains to be seen, but this isn’t the kind of "show vote" government that we are used to from Capitol Hill Republicans, this is real.

New Role For Conservatives: Operate As A Fourth Force

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
On tax reform, economic growth, reducing the size and scope of government and many other areas President Trump has indicated he wants to pass a bold conservative agenda. Let’s make it our job to be the “fourth force” that pushes him to the right and convinces him that to pass that agenda he must explicitly and actively move right and align himself with conservatives.

The continuing liberal meltdown

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The most revealing aspect of the continuing liberal meltdown is how anti-woman the so-called feminist movement has really become. Instead of reflecting on how and why the Democratic Party has been reduced to a coastal club, liberals (all of whom are feminists, of course) decided attacking the president’s daughter and wife would be a really good idea.
