  • Trump Pokes Fun At ‘Resistance’: You Know What Happened When Hillary Resisted?

    President Donald Trump took a swipe at his former opponent in the 2016 election by poking fun at “The Resistance” during a Friday night rally in Pensacola, Fla. Trump, speaking about his administration’s accomplishments, made fun of the “resistance” by pointing out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to “resist” and ended up losing the 2016 presidential election. “Oh these resisters resist. Hillary resisted and you know what happened? She lost the election in a landslide,” Trump said as the crowd erupted into cheers.

    As a person of Polish heritage with a deep appreciation of the bravery and heroics of the Polish Home Army and associated groups during WW2 it’s been irritating to watch the American Left pick up the term “Resistance” and take it as their own. Real resistance has a cost. Real resistance is, by definition, an act of desperation by a conquered people. Keith Olbermann ranting on cable TV is not resistance. SIRUS-XM’s “Progress” rebranding itself “Home of the Resistance” is merely pathetic LARPing. For all the fake-fear that the Left claims to feel since Trump won a year ago, the...
  • Romania joins Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Czech Republic in rejection of Muslim migrants

    EU President Juncker wants to allow Romania into the border-free Schengen zone, no doubt as an additional Muslim migration route, now that other Eastern European countries have closed their borders to it. Judging by Romania’s disdain for Muslims, it looks to be a non-starter. Romanians insist “our children must also grow up in safe and civilized conditions. We don’t want to end up like Western Europe where they are afraid to let children walk to school alone, or for their wives to be alone in the streets.” Romania is using technology and extra border control agents to prevent Muslims from...

    Besides the masses know by now that it is ex-president Barack Obama who is the leader of the Resistance and not the admittedly burned-out GQ talking head of ‘The Resistance’. Only Keith Olbermann could toss in the towel on the world of political commentary and throw an online Retirement Party, attended only by the retiree himself. Only an arrogant Keith Olbermann would take credit as he headed out the door for bringing impeachment down upon the head of President Donald Trump. Only Blowhard Olbermann could call Trump the “Harvey Weinstein” of politics, licking his lips at the prospect of Trump...

    Stephen K. Bannon believes that the Democratic Party’s obsession with identity politics will ultimately backfire against them. In fact, he believes this has broken the party to such a degree that it will never recover. The process has already begun. In his new book Bannon: Always the Rebel, released on Monday, Keith Koffler notes that the former White House Chief Strategist revealed a deep flaw in the Democratic Party’s hand that showed its poker face as a transparent window to the true nature of the party’s illusion of strength. It was through Bannon’s travel ban, which was expeditiously rolled out,...

    This holiday season makes for the perfect time to Count Your Blessings. Best blessing of Thanksgiving 2017 to count first: Hillary Clinton never made it as president. The caterwauling of that stunning loss continues over a year later. But Clinton, who acts as if she really won the presidency, is now down to carping at the voting world from the none-too-stable Clinton Foundation, or whatever is left of it.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 17, 2017 | Becket Adams
    President Trump has a gift. He can get a person to reverse on a previously held position without saying a single word. His mere presence in U.S. politics is enough to compel both supporters and opponents, white-knuckled with rage, to flip on a dime so long as they believe it helps or hurts him. Consider, for example, the fact that Hillary Clinton now thinks it’s good to question the legitimacy of U.S. presidential elections. Never mind the fact that she held and vigorously propounded the exact opposite view a mere 12 months ago. “[T]here are lots of questions about its...

    Five people share what it's like to be at the center of a suddenly chaotic political world. On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump won the presidential election. For many, the world itself seemed to change overnight. The old rules and certainties of politics were revealed as worthless; a sensation that anything could happen—for better or for worse—struck the entire country. The experts who so confidently predicted a Hillary Clinton victory looked like failures. The media gadflies in the alt-right gained new prominence and power, with some eventually getting White House press passes. And a crew of crony capitalists would soon...

    Just over a year ago, the political left in the US watched in shock as what seemed unimaginable happened - Donald Trump won the presidency. Since then, they've mourned, they've marched, and they've moved on. Sort of. There was a moment on the first full day of the Women's Convention in Detroit, Michigan, last month when the audience came alive. Linda Sarsour, a co-chair of the event, was moderating a panel about activism in the era of Trump, and glanced down at her phone. She then announced to the cavernous conference hall that there were reports that independent counsel Robert...

    The clock is ticking on the only vehicle capable of resisting Trumpism. I will go to my grave convinced that the 2016 Democratic primary process was the single most depressing political event I ever witnessed. The Republicans at least had a thin, bright edge of insanity that kept things from getting utterly tedious. (I never will forget waking up on the morning of the Indiana primary to discover that the president* had tried to pin the Kennedy assassination on Ted Cruz’s father. Most primary days are a dull as dishwater until they start counting the votes. This one wasn’t.) But...

    If you ever wanted to scream aimlessly at the sky because you still mourning Hillary Clinton’s election loss, your chance is just around the corner. If you can hold back your wailing for just a little longer you can join in with a group of screamers who are setting up to yelp helplessly at the sky on November 8. This way when you let your screams rip and the police happen to come, you will at least have an excuse. The maturity level of it all might be questioned one day in the history books, but for now, a bunch...

    Warning to state-by-state redistricting officials: the anti-democracy enemy is already on the way to replace you. Resistance Leader Sneak Attack ALERT The anti-American ex-president, who will continue to antagonize and haunt Americans during his natural lifetime and will NEVER go away; his hand-picked protégé who lost last November’s election but acts as though she’s the current president anyway, have managed to insert themselves into the underpinnings of the entire electoral process. Self-crowned ‘Resistance Leader’ Barack Hussein Obama has discovered a workable loophole to take the Democrat Party out of exile back into power.

    On Nov. 9, 2016, millions of Americans woke up with a crushing sense that something was terribly wrong with their country. Donald Trump’s election inspired such moral revulsion and political outrage that by that afternoon, parts of the American electorate had taken to calling themselves “the resistance,” evoking the guerrillas who took to the hills and fought the Nazis during World War II. Just a day before, many of these same people were enthusiastically casting their ballots for a centrist Democrat; suddenly they were self-styled revolutionaries. The day after Mr. Trump’s inauguration saw enormous protests across the country that incorporated...

    Last week I returned from a big journalism conference, and it cemented a hunch I’ve been ruminating on for a little while now: A lot of the chatter in the hallways was about data suggesting that readers have started paying less attention to the quick-churn news cycle. Web traffic to news sites appears to have declined across the board from the spikes after Trump was elected. That’s a problem for a lot of an industry that derives most of its revenue from the ad impressions that load every time you click on a story, whether or not you end up...

    In the final press conference of his presidency, then President Barack Obama reiterated that he would largely keep mum once his successor took office. “It is appropriate for him to go forward with his vision and his values,” Obama explained. However, that statement did come with a bit of a caveat. For Obama, there would be “certain issues or certain moments where I think our core values are at stake” that might “merit me speaking out,” he said. Those issues included “systematic discrimination being ratified in some fashion,” “explicit or functional obstacles to people being able to vote,” “institutional efforts...

    PBS Newshour ^ | October 18, 2017 | Shadi Hamid, senior fellow, Brookings Institution
    We live in an era of alarmism. Everyone, or at least Trump opponents, seems alarmed nearly all the time. Even when we can’t quite summon the energy, we’re expected to be outraged. Our outrage is then presented as a badge of honor, evidence of virtue at a time of historic challenge to the Republic. But the nature of the outrage – overwrought before even Trump took office – has taken a new turn. We are confronted daily not simply with outrage, but a kind of end-of-worldism: America is on the brink of dictatorship; Trump is going start World War III;...

    Neera Tanden, senior Clinton campaign adviser, tells Conflict Zone that the role of the Democratic Party right now is to fight Trump and provide alternatives. But how exactly should that work? To say US President Donald Trump's approval ratings aren't the best would be a big understatement. In fact, right now they're the worst for any president at this point in their term in the history of public opinion polling, according to the polling analysis website FiveThirtyEight. But are the Democrats able to turn Trump's unpopularity into political victories? "I would say that they were able to so far successfully...

    Anti-Trump resistance groups are attracting big money from major liberal donors, creating a challenge to respected liberal institutions according to a report in The New York Times. Groups like Flippable, Swing Left, Sister District, Women’s March and Indivisible have seen an uptick in donations since July when the Democracy Alliance gave its donors a “resistance map” with their names. Democracy Alliance is a network of progressive donors who coordinate their political donations to groups that the Alliance has endorsed. “We’re in a disruptive period, and when we get through it, the progressive infrastructure landscape may look different,” Gara LaMarche, president...

    Membership in the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has tripled since Donald Trump’s election in November to over 19,000 paying members, a report from the Los Angeles Times reveals. The group, founded in 1982, is now the largest socialist organization in the United States and recently published a “Resistance Rising” strategy to combat the Trump administration. “On November 8, voters in the United States narrowly elected an openly racist, misogynist and nativist candidate for president,” the organization’s website reads. “We must understand ‘Trumpism’ as a cross-class white nativist alliance; the median family income of the 62 percent of white voters...
