Did Trump Lock-Up 2020 In One Speech?

President Trump correctly identified the issues at bar in 2020 as the American dream versus the socialist nightmare. Democrats are already helping President Trump put their socialism on trial by embracing socialist candidates,  and by ratcheting-up the socialist rhetoric. It is up to us conservatives to make sure Trump obtains the conviction.

Media Ignores Great Economic News… Again

Inflation-adjusted disposable income rose 4.2 percent, last quarter, and America’s working families are seeing a continued gain in their disposable income, and thus a continued improvement in their quality of life. This is not only good news for America’s working families, it is good political news for President Trump, which is probably why it was buried by the establishment news media.

Trump Report Card: State of the Union Address 2019

Our friend David Franke shares President Donald Trump's report card for a class in Political Performance 101—an elective in both the theater/performance art department and the political science department of Franke University. Understood in this way, Prof. Franke gave President Trump a grade of A+.

Good News From Trump Wrecks Democrats

The American workers Donald Trump promised to fight for are the real winners of the Trump economic boom. Good news for Americans is death to the Democrat Party, and that is why in their coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union message most of the establishment media could not get beyond the shenanigans of the white-clad Democratic congresswomen.

Wealth, Poverty, and Flight: The Same Old State of California

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

California is explained not only by sociology but also by psychology. There is a new mentality in which the virtue-signaling elite enjoy the cheap labor of the poor and do not much care about the poor’s inability to access reasonably priced gasoline and electrical power, safe neighborhoods, and quality schools and infrastructure. From their secure keeps, they square that circle by offering generous entitlements, open borders, and progressive empathy — and lots of self-righteous bumper-sticker rhetoric. At least for now.

If Dr. Ben Carson Won't End Obama Era Policies Should He Resign?

Obama orders micromanaging the housing policies of unsuspecting local communities shamefully continue under Dr. Ben Carson, ravaging property rights and eroding the very foundation of prosperity for American families.

How to Annihilate U.S. Socialism and Force Washington to Listen

The socialist movement eliminated Christianity in government and education because they know what our Founders knew.

Government Makes The Poor Poorer

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

Could it be that the gridlock and polarization in Washington could be ended by a bipartisan reform movement to scout out and remove laws and rules that hurt those at the bottom of the income scale the most? One universal goal that we should all agree on and aspire to is equality of opportunity — which these laws squelch.

How Dr. Ben Carson can heal the wounds of Obama's racism

Helping our inner city poor effects our entire nation.  Done properly, helping the poor builds their self-esteem, provides opportunities and reduces costly welfare programs.  Equally important, it can remove HUD from meddling in local government and jeopardizing property rights.

New York Times Paints a False Picture of Prosperity

Stephen Moore, The American Spectator

Using one year of data after seven and a half years of Obama policies is pretty misleading and distortionary. Things did get better in 2015. But guess what. So far this year the economy has grown at just one percent. It looks like that one year of good news will be a statistical blip. No wonder Americans by a two to one margin believe the economy is “on the wrong track.” And they are right.

Conservatives: We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

Some of our conservative friends can’t seem to stop wishing for the election they want, instead of concentrating on winning the election they have. However, despite this lack of ability to focus on winning, the tools to win are actually there, in a way they haven’t been available to Republicans in the past several presidential election cycles.

Sessions: Amnesty Hurts African-Americans the Most

In an exclusive interview conducted by our friend Matt Boyle of Breitbart, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama argued that amnesty for illegal aliens and other immigration policies favored by Obama and the Democrats will be financially devastating -- especially to African-American workers.

Congressman Ryan and the Ending of Poverty

Robert Weissberg, American Thinker

Bureaucratic reorganization won’t end poverty. We don’t need Paul Ryan's 73 page treatise on bureaucratic reorganization. The best anti-poverty nostrum is the Calvinist work ethic and despite the Calvinist label, it applies universally regardless of religion or color. 

LBJ's Great Society: The Establishment's War On America

After fifty years, American skepticism of the Great Society and the big government it created have never been stronger, and the embrace of the Great Society’s big spending and big government by the Republican establishment has never been tighter.

Greg Richter, NewsMax

In a pre-emptive strike on Obama's own budget set to be released Tues., House Repubs. are releasing a report on Mon. as a prelude to their own version later this month. The GOP report is critical of the 50-year-old War on Poverty and proposes reforms to welfare and social programs.

The Problem is Dependency, Not Poverty

Walter Williams, GOP USA

There's very little guts in the political arena to address the basic causes of poverty. To do so risks being labeled as racist, sexist, uncaring and insensitive. That means today's dependency is likely to become permanent.

Levin: This Is Not the America The Framers Established

Real Clear Politics Staff
