Bush Aide: NYT Fabricated Trump Story

David Catron, The American Spectator

The New York Times story’s credibility collapsed completely when it attributed this revelation about Bush’s intentions to unnamed sources “familiar with their thinking.” Sure enough, when the Bush people got wind of this tale, they denounced it as just another manifestation of the Gray Lady’s penchant for fiction. The Times hasn’t exactly covered itself in glory lately, and this latest fraud won’t enhance its credibility. Even worse for the New York Times editorial crew, it works in Trump’s favor. His supporters tend to take the position that anyone the Republican Establishment dislikes can’t be all bad.

More Silence of the Bushes, Please

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

If anybody should shut up about partisan politics it’s the Bushes, whose utter failure to understand how they can and will be used to destroy a presidency caused both to leave office in defeat, 41 through losing reelection, and 43 through suffering microscopic approval ratings thanks to the Democrats’ use of “Bush Lied, People Died” anti-Iraq War propaganda that was never answered. Trump’s style might have its own blemishes, but one thing he will consistently do is defend himself from all comers. That’s a form of Republican politics that was long overdue, even if it sows discord the legacy media doesn’t like.

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.

Can This Be True? Trump Ties With ‘Unnamed Socialist’

In its matchups of Trump versus Democratic candidates, a recent poll asked people to choose between the president and an unnamed “Democratic candidate who you regard as a socialist.” The result: A tie. Trump, 46%; Socialist, 46%. Among likely voters, the split was Trump 49%, unnamed socialist 43%.

Far-Left Billionaire Whacko Tom Steyer Enters Democrat Primary

The Democratic Party wisemen in Washington can’t be happy with Tom Steyer’s announcement because it will be that much harder for them to move to the center for the November election with Steyer pushing the other Democrats even further to the Left on impeachment, global warming and abortion, while ramping-up the anti-free market rhetoric.

Eric Swalwell Nukes His Campaign For President

Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Far-Left California Democrat Congressman who famously reminded gun owners that the government has nuclear weapons should they choose to resist his gun confiscation schemes, is abandoning his presidential campaign. But that doesn’t mean Democrats will abandon their plans to try to confiscate your guns should they ever obtain the power to do so.

Democrats Hate It When Peace Breaks Out

Trump as a successful peacemaker on the Korean Peninsula does not help the Democrats defeat him in the 2020 election, so the Democrats and their media allies have suddenly become adverse to peace with North Korea and prefer what was known during the Cold War as brinksmanship or a reversion to the failed policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

A History Lesson For Jeb Bush

As we see it, Jeb Bush’s claim that he wants a primary to spark “a conversation about what it is to be a conservative…” is nothing more than a cover story to justify a scorched earth primary campaign against Donald Trump that would only advantage the Democrats and jeopardize all the conservative successes of Trump’s first term.

On Race Nothing Trump Does Will Ever Satisfy His Enemies

Nothing President Trump does, inlcuding signing a Proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King and laying a wreath at his memorial will ever satisfy his enemies, who used those presidential ceremonies to scurrilously attack him as a racist.

On Syria Donald Trump Finally Acts Like President Trump

Washington’s overall objective should be to bring peace to America, not micro-manage other nations’ conflicts. Washington policymakers come up with long lists of objectives which are not worth the cost, in this case essentially permanent war. Withdrawal from Syria is long overdue.

The Trump Doctrine

President Trump’s remarks at the UN were noteworthy, not so much for their radical departure from the interventionist policies of the two Bush presidents, and their rejection of the weakness and globalism of Obama, but for their return to the principles of George Washington.

9/11 Is Far From Over

As long as American politicians refuse to acknowledge that Islamism – not “terrorism” – is the ideology behind 9/11, and as long as our government refuses to battle that ideology, Islamists will continue to plot right here in America, and 9/11 will never be over.

Trump Could Be One of America's Great Foreign Policy Presidents

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

Liberal media is aghast at the president's rough handling of Canadian boy-band frontman Justin Trudeau, and his confrontational approach overall at the Group of Seven summit. When the dust settles, though, Trump may accomplish what eluded Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama: a stabler and safer world without the need for millions of American boots on the ground. He well may go down in history as one of our great foreign policy presidents. It's not in the bag, but it is within sight.

Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

Senator Rand Paul Chooses Policy Over Politics On Pompeo Vote

The easy political move for Senator Paul would have been to vote “NO” on Mike Pompeo and claim it was a vote based on principle, the tougher and better move for the country, and Senator Paul’s policy goals, was to get the commitments on policy and vote “YES.”

Rand Paul Stands Against Warmongers And Torturers

Principled liberty-minded Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has announced that he will oppose the nominations Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel, Trump’s choice for Secretary of State and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Trump’s National Security Strategy: A Welcome Break From Obama And Bush

Neocons, the congressional war party, and the military – industrial complex will no doubt be ready to criticize President Trump’s national security strategy as a retreat from America’s role in the world – but nothing could be further from the truth.

Saudi Arabia Promotes Radical Wahhabism, Creates Breeding Ground for Terrorists

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been consolidating power while posing as a reformer. However, while limiting the influence of fundamentalist clerics at home, he has not yet dropped the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s longstanding support for radical Islamism abroad.

Navigating the Middle East Mess Left by Obama and Bush

If President Trump is serious about countering Iranian aggression and repairing the mess in the Middle East left by Obama and Bush, then steps must be taken across the region, otherwise Iran will assert political and economic dominance over the entire northern tier of the Middle East and become the Middle East’s Shi’ite superpower.
