    Glenn Beck has suggested that it would be the ďend of the country as we know itĒ if Donald Trump does not win at the 2020 election because of the rise of radicalism and socialism in the Democratic Party. Speaking to Fox Newsís Sean Hannity, the conservative radio host and author said he had discussed the threat posed by the changing face of the party for the past year, which is now being highlighted by the election of Congresswomen such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, and the support of the Green New Deal. ďI said what was coming and...
  • Wow: Republicans now crafting legislation to limit POTUS power in future national emergencies

    Few Democrats and Republicans had any issues with the National Emergencies Act, passed in 1976 to give presidents the authority to declare emergencies in times of crisis. But since the president is now Donald Trump and the crisis is unchecked illegal immigration, suddenly members of his own party, as well as a growing number of Democrats, have lots of problems with the law ó and they want to change it. Seems like the Koch Brothers still wield much power. The Hill reports that Republican leaders are currently crafting legislation that would curb the presidentís powers during future national emergency declarations.

    Watching the Jeep Super Bowl commercial several times, it suddenly became clear, President Trump is on his way to a 45 state landslide.You are way out over your skis, some will say. Get this guy some smelling salts!What about the nonstop investigations? What about Stormy Daniels and Robert Mueller? What about the angry Left and their apologists in the national media? What about Mr. Trumpís prickly, in your face persona? What about the feckless Congressional Republicans and the never Trumpers? What if the trade talks with the Communist Chinese come up empty?†Watching the Jeep ad, it became crystal clear. None...

    Jeb Bush believes a Republican should challenge President Trump for the nomination in 2020 ó slamming the president's "dangerous" policies on trade and other issues. In the latest salvo between the two former rivals, Bush, who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, made the comments Saturday during an interview with ex-Obama adviser David Axelrod. Bush, whose father George. H.W. Bush was the 41st president of the United States and his brother, George W. Bush, was the 43rd, reportedly added that Republican voters should be given more of a choice between different ideologies. "And our country needs to...

    Senate Republicans will bring the Green New Deal resolution to the floor as they try to jam Democrats on the progressive proposal. **SNIP** McConnell blasted the progressive proposal from the Senate floor earlier Wednesday, calling it an example of "garden-variety 20th-century socialism." "Our Democratic colleagues have taken all the debunked philosophies of the last hundred years, rolled them into one giant package, and thrown a little green paint on them to make them look new. But thereís nothing remotely new about a proposal to centralize control over the economy and raise taxes on the American people to pay for it,"...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Thursday that he will oppose President Trump's emergency declaration to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall. "I will vote today for the resolution of disapproval. This is a vote for the Constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core," Romney said in a statement. Romney is the sixth Republican senator to say he will vote for the resolution of disapproval, which is getting a vote in the Senate later Thursday.

    The Pew Research Center has produced a projected profile of what the American electorate will look like ethnically in the 2020 elections. The portrait shows a continued trend of America becoming an increasingly nonwhite nation and electorate. Pew projects that 66.7 percent of eligible voters in 2020 will be white. In the presidential election in 2016, 71 percent of voters were white. In 2000, 76.4 percent of eligible voters were white, 10 points more than Pew projects for 2020. When President Reagan was elected in 1980, 88 percent of the electorate was white. A number of factors are driving the...

    A powerful General Assembly committee voted Friday to revise Gov. Larry Hoganís more than $46 billion budget proposal to provide millions more in funding for Marylandís public schools, while cutting some of the Republican governorís prized initiatives. Led by Baltimore Democrat Maggie McIntosh, the House Appropriations Committee approved a spending plan that provides about $320 million more for operating Marylandís public schools. That would be the first step toward implementing recommendations from the so-called Kirwan Commission, which has proposed ambitious new programs to boost student performance. The committeeís spending plan also includes $500 million for public school construction and $46...

    The one policy area where conservatives could still count on most Republicans to stand firm and resist Leftist Democratic efforts ó even those considered solidly within the ĎGOP Establishmentí ó was so-called ďclimate change,Ē but not even that resistance appears to be cracking. More Republicans are beginning to embrace the Ďclimate scienceí claiming that human activity is disrupting the Earthís weather and climate patterns to the detriment of everyone on the planet. One former GOP stalwart was Rep. John Shimkus of Illinois, who at one time forcefully pushed back against allegations of human-caused climate change by invoking the Bible and...

Malkin, during a CIS panel discussion at the, said the billionaire donor class and establishment Republicans do not want Americans focused on the impact of legal immigration ó where the...

    If the 2020 election were held today President Donald Trump would win by a bigger margin than in 2016, carrying the most number of states since the Re-election of President Ronald Reagan. I say this because like I did two years before Barack Obama was elected, I saw trends that added up to a significant win, I noted them in this column, and they occurred in near complete detail. In 2016 with polls and every media pundit, and even many of his own supporters doubting the outcome of the election, I predicted the map that would match the election night...

    I often wonder who didnít love Donald Trump. I often wonder who left an affection void that he has tried to fill by winning attention, which is not the same thing. Heís turned his life into a marketing strategy. As Michael Cohen said in his testimony on Wednesday, even the presidential campaign was a marketing campaign to build the Trump brand. In turning himself into a brand heís turned himself into a human shell, so brittle and gilded that there is no place for people close to him to attach. His desperate attempts to be loved have made him unable...

    Since his election, Governor Walz has promised to increase the gas tax in Minnesota. Walz delivered on that promise in his just-released budget proposal. In the budget proposal released this week, Walz is proposing to increase the gas tax by 70% which will collect an estimated $1.3 Billion from taxpayers. The average family which drives two cards can expect to pay up to an additional $300 at the gas pump annually. This tax increase will now give Minnesota the 4th highest gas tax in the nation. The budget will have to get passed by the Minnesota Senate which is currently...

    Earlier this week the Democrats now running the House of Representatives strutted their stuff with passage of a bill aiming at the ancient liberal target of the gun background check ďloopholeĒ for private sales. It was passed by a 240-190 margin on what was basically a party-line vote. But before that vote, Republicans offered an unexpected ďmotion to recommitĒ the bill to add language instructing law enforcement officials to notify ICE if an ďillegal immigrantĒ attempted to buy a gun. Twenty-six Democrats voted with Republicans in favor of that motion, and embarrassed House leaders added the language as an amendment...

    Republicans won two of the five state legislative seats at stake in special elections Tuesday, flipping House and Senate districts by carrying blue-collar communities that have grown difficult for Democrats. All five vacancies were the result of Gov. Lamont hiring Democratic legislators in January. Even with the losses, Democrats retained solid majorities of 91-60 in the House and 22-14 in the Senate. But Republicans got a morale boost after losing ground in the General Assembly last fall for the first time in 10 years. In the nightís biggest upset, Republican Gennaro Bizzarro of New Britain won the the 6th Senate...

    A recent column by Matt Lewis in the Daily Beast takes (almost) seriously the chances of a successful primary challenge to President Trump. Lewis, the author of a book on the dumbing down of the Republican Party during 2016, is no fan of the President.
