    BILLINGS -- As bipartisan crowd-pleasers go, few get Montanans nodding more approvingly than calls for a balanced federal budget, which is why U.S. Sen. Steve Daines recently offered a bill forcing his peers to go unpaid unless they reign in spending. “As I travel around Montana, as I did in December wrapping up a 56-county tour, when I talk about this bill, it’s a bill that will literally bring applause from across the state,” Daines told The Gazette. The state of Montana balances its budget. The federal government should do the same, or so goes the narrative that literally every...

    Politico magazine has an interesting piece up today titled “What Do You Do if a Red State Moves to You?” That title is actually close to being the opposite of what the piece describes. It’s not about red staters moving into the cities. It’s about blue staters deciding, for one reason or another, to colonize a small county in rural Wisconsin and then being horrified to find not everyone who lives there shares their political outlook. The author suggests the cultural smugness of these progressive transplants is one reason some people in this rural county voted for Donald Trump. The...

    Jan. 22 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump reacted Sunday to the protests nationwide one day earlier that drew millions of people, wondering "Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly." Trump posted the comments on his personal Twitter account. "Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election!" the president tweeted. In a later Tweet he commented on the efforts. "Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy," he wrote. "Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views." The protests nationwide highlighted women's causes and protested...

    Democrats begin the Donald Trump presidency in sad shape. They lack a clear power base, they’ve got no distinct national leader, and party brokers are searching for a formula to counter the new Republican-dominated government and figure out how to win again. It’s a curious and dispiriting position for a party that has led the national popular vote six out of the past seven presidential elections. Yet Hillary Clinton lost the Electoral College count, while Republicans maintained their largest House majority since 1928 and kept control of the Senate — with 2018 advantages that offer the potential of a Senate...

But in another sense, it was the reckoning the party had been expecting for years. They were counting on a Clinton win to paper over a deeper rot they’ve been worrying about—and to buy them some time to start coming up with answers. In other words, it wasn’t just Donald Trump.

Candidates sitting before members of Congress are subject to a single mantra coming from democrats—“do you accept and believe that climate change is real and your job, first and foremost, is to combat this threat to the world?”

I’m not boasting or gloating about this outcome. I didn’t want there to be a first Trump inauguration, and I probably won’t be too happy about a second one, either.

John Lewis’s civil-rights record when he wrote on Twitter Saturday that the congressman was “all talk” and “no action,” the president-elect might need a refresher course in U.S. history.

I don't know how to track down such an ancient article without a paid Lexis-Nexis membership, so I'll summarize what I remember: The Dems had an overwhelming Congressional majority since 1932, as much as 75% in both houses (except for two temporary glitches in the late 40s / early 50s), and this was certain to continue. The Dems had a permanent lock on the White House starting...

'I think there is no question that the process that elected him was not legitimate,' Sharpton said yesterday on MSNBC, the network where he also hosts a show. Since Lewis said that he didn't view Trump as a 'legitimate president,' he's been whacked around by the president-elect, who continued to tweet about the civil rights leader and Democratic congressman today. During the interview and citing intelligence reports that pointed to Russian interference, Sharpton said the electoral process...

    When President-elect Donald Trump replaces Barack Obama on January 20, the Democratic Party will find itself more removed from power than at almost any point since the party’s creation. Scorned by the same voters who once embraced the New Deal, built the Great Society, and put their hope in the nation’s first black president, Democrats are now locked out of power in Washington and out of two-thirds of state legislative chambers across the country. Simply put, Democrats’ once vaunted coalition of the ascendant — younger, multiethnic, educated, and urban — failed them in 2016, and in 2014 and 2010 before...

The 60 odd Democratic members of the House of Representatives ‘boycotting’ Donald Trump’s Inauguration, are, like the paid protesters hinting at Friday’s violence on DC streets, having us on. The plain truth is that none of the 60 would be noticed whether there at the ceremony, or depriving America of their presence sitting it out at home or elsewhere.

I realize Democrats don’t know much about business, but I assume most of them know the law. And if that’s the case, then they know the suggestion our soon-to-be Secretary of Health and Human Services engaged in anything like “insider trading” is so much nonsense.

    On January 20, 2001, John Lewis did not attend George W. Bush’s inauguration. He didn’t make a big deal about it, but Bush losing the popular vote coupled with the contentious Florida recount left Lewis feeling less than magnanimous. According to contemporaneous press accounts, the Georgia congressman and civil rights icon spent Inauguration Day in his Atlanta district. Lewis was hardly the only prominent Democrat who had trouble accepting the new president after the 2000 election was finally decided. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Jesse Jackson trashed the U.S. Supreme Court and questioned Bush’s “legitimacy.” Recognizing the starkness of...

NBC News 4’s Mark Segraves reported that it’s “against the law” for body cameras to be on while police are at protests unless the officer is required to take action. This means that officers can turn the cameras on when they want to arrest somebody, but they will be unable to capture what...

    In the midst of his lengthy farewell address, outgoing President Barack Obama averred that "one of my proudest accomplishments has been that there have been no Islamic terror attacks on my watch." A key to this accomplishment has been the clever reclassification of murders committed by self-professed jihadis as "other types of crimes." The murder of 13 unarmed soldiers at Fort Hood in Texas in November 2009 by a Muslim praising Allah during the shooting spree was characterized as "workplace violence" by the Obama Administration.

The party’s key leaders — not the party’s voters — picked and promoted Hillary Clinton, meaning she was secretly coronated before the primary ever began. Her rival Bernie Sanders never had a chance. The “nomination” contest was theater designed to make Sanders voters...

    Mr. Garfinkle of Garfinkle’s New Method Hebrew School in Milwaukee used to frequently echo King Solomon’s admonition; “There’s nothing new under the sun.” I was reminded of that this week when the rapidly unfolding “scandal” of Trump’s purported dealings with Russia hit the news. It has more than a few similarities with the Dan Rather faked-up story of GW Bush’s National Guard service where an anonymous, never-found source supposedly gave Bill Burkett a demonstrably fake report and Dan Rather ran with it. This time a Bush (Jeb) is involved but as an instigator of the story, not a victim. John...

    John Lewis, the famed Democratic Georgia Representative and civil rights leader, said that President-Elect Donald Trump is not a legitimate President. As much as I would like to reverse the clock and change the outcome of the election, everytime I think about that, I am reminded in my memory of how we, Democrats, failed to really come together under one unifying message.A lot of us were ignored by those in the DNC who achieved power-positions. Even long-time credentialed bloggers like me (Zennie Abraham, Zennie62.com, Zennie62 on YouTube) were ignored by the Clinton-controlled DNC brass, and left out of covering the...

    Spread rumors about Russian vote rigging, push protests Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives have fueled efforts to delegitimize President-elect Donald Trump, pushing allegations of his complicity with Russian email hacks and boosting protests of the inauguration. Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for the Clinton presidential campaign, has said there’s “too much evidence” that Mr. Trump was in league with Russian spies trying to rig the election. Former Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri used Twitter to circulate maps of protest sites for Mr. Trump’s inauguration on Friday. Neera Tanden, a policy adviser on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, has made her anti-Trump stance...

    This is just freaking embarrassing- but then again no one could ever figure out what Valerie jarret did besides demand a ss agent and a car https://t.co/HqHv9cfwvI— jim manley (@jamespmanley) January 12, 2017 A former top aide to Harry Reid took a parting shot at fellow Democrat and White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett on Thursday, questioning exactly what she has been doing for the last eight years. James Manley, a former spokesman to the former Democratic Senate leader from Nevada, tweeted that the public and those in Congress still don't understand what Jarrett contributed to the Obama administration during...

    Despite tax collection increasing by 50 percent in the last 9 years, California’s public pension insolvency is forcing Gov. Jerry Brown to propose a dangerously unpopular 42 percent increase in gasoline taxes and a 141 percent increase in vehicle registration fees. Breitbart News reported on January 9 that Gov. Brown announced that for the first time since 2012, California’s $122.8 billion General Fund Budget is in deficit by $1.6 billion. Despite a near bankruptcy during the financial crisis, California’s tax revenues have increased by about $43 billion in the last 9 years. Brown on Monday only suggested relatively painless spending...

    Would someone please help me understand why the losers keep trying to tell the winners how to run things? I didn't think life ran that way. If a man applies for the job and he is one of three applicants and does NOT get the job, he does not have the authority to ask for anything to be done from that position. If two military units go to battle, the losers do not tell the winners how they want to be treated. If two football teams play a game and one side wins, the losers do not have the authority...

    Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire George Soros who acts as the managing partner for Soros Brothers Investments, has quietly emerged as a major donor to Democratic campaigns and causes. Alexander has remained relatively unknown in the world of political giving thanks to his father garnering a bulk of the family’s attention. However, Alexander has stepped up his political contributions even as his father continued to pour tens of millions into the coffers of Democratic campaigns and political action committees. Alexander gave more than $4.5 million to Democratic campaign committees and political action committees in 2016, according to campaign...
