I’m going to make DACA a part of it,” President Trump told Noticias Telemundo in an exclusive interview.
  • Democrats Are Making Unforced Errors. Republicans must seize the opportunities to regain the offensive in the campaign.

    As the mainstream media all but declares the 2020 election for Joe Biden, Democrats are making mistakes. They’re saying and doing things that could cause problems—if Republicans step up their game. Consider the congressional logjam over police reform. After George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, the nation was angry and aghast. Then Rayshard Brooks was killed in Atlanta, and the demand for change grew even stronger. Yet when the Senate moved to take up the comprehensive police reform bill introduced by Tim Scott (R., S.C.), Democrats blocked its consideration, despite the bill’s many similarities with the Democratic House’s measure. Sen. Scott...

The group, named 43 Alumni For Biden, was created Monday. Documents list former Treasury Department official Karen Kirksey as its custodian of records and group’s treasurer. The super PAC, nor Kirksey have issued a statement regarding the effort to propel the presumptive Democrat nominee to the White House.

    I know this has probably keen posted/discussed before which is why posting in Chit Chat... But last night Karl Rove announced his come back as Republican powerbroker. He was pretty vocal about wanting to defeat Steve King in Iowa and mobililzed forces (money and support) to the eventual winner. This is bad news for the Republican Party. Just when I thought the forces of Liberty were making strides in the party since around 2010 (with the election of Rand Paul coincidentally) we now have this MASSIVE set back. The Bush Republicans are back and I fear they're going to influence...

    Former White House strategist Karl Rove pushed back Friday at reports that said he is advising the Trump campaign, but said he does give “unvarnished advice” to Trump's campaign when it contacts him. Rove sad he is friends with Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, and that Parscale calls him from time to time. “Well first of all, don’t believe everything you read in the press," Rove said in an interview with Fox News Radio's "The Guy Benson Show" on Friday. Robe said he likes Parscale and "I consider him a friend, I’ve become quite a fan." "I think he’s got...

    Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove slammed Joe Biden on "Hannity" Thursday for sending out an email warning Americans about coronavirus and soliciting donations for his presidential campaign. Hannity noted that Biden had joined fellow Democrats in criticizing President Trump during the early onset of the virus outbreak after the incumbent ordered strict border security measures, which Biden's primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called "xenophobic." Hannity called Biden "sick" and asked Rove to react.

    Karl Rove said that Hillary Clinton needs to either “put up or shut up” over her accusations that 2020 Democratic contender Tulsi Gabbard and former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein could be Russian assets. Rove, President George W. Bush’s deputy chief of staff, made the remarks on Fox News’ The Story with Martha MacCallum Friday night. The comments come after Clinton, 71, said Gabbard, 38, is “ a favorite of the Russians” and implied that the congresswoman is a “Russian asset.” “Over the top, out of her mind,” Rove said of Clinton. "Put up or shut up."

    It has been only 10 days since Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared that the House was “moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry” of President Trump, and Democrats are already blowing it. They are moving much too quickly. Democrats toss around the word “urgent” as if speed is the prime imperative—more important than finding the truth or following procedure. After explaining that events “accelerated the pace” for beginning impeachment, Mrs. Pelosi told reporters, “We have to strike while the iron is hot,” repeating the phrase for emphasis. That means House Democrats will likely hold hearings for a few weeks once they...

    Monday Fox News contributor Karl Rove said President Donald Trump needs to do better than the “raw and dangerous” rhetoric he has used while commenting on racial issues. Discussing politicians comments on the recent mass shootings, Rove said, “Everybody in our political system needs to do better. The president needs to do better. His rhetoric at times has been raw and dangerous, I think in terms of being easily misunderstood. The Charlottesville statement, for example.”

    Only Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017 could have been a sweeter day for the present occupants of the White House than last Sunday. The publication of Attorney General William Barr’s letter summarizing special counsel Robert Mueller’s report lifted an enormous political weight off President Trump and his team. Mr. Mueller found no evidence that “the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” Mr. Barr concluded “the evidence developed” during the Mueller investigation “is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” These findings demolished the principal “resistance” talking points, leaving...

    Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W. Bush’s top political strategist, was brought in by Senate GOP leaders to speak to the 22 Republican incumbents up for reelection at an all-day planning session Thursday hosted at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, D.C. GOP lawmakers are getting nervous about next year’s election as polls show President Trump’s approval rating dropping during the 28-day government...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders knows what he wants. In a Washington Post op-ed last week, the democratic socialist from Vermont laid out a legislative agenda for the 116th Congress’s first 100 days. Among the dizzying array of proposals Mr. Sanders pushed were his signature “Medicare for All” bill, tuition-free college, student-debt relief, tax increases requiring “wealthy people and large corporations to begin paying their fair share” and a $15 minimum wage indexed to “median wage growth,” not inflation. Others in the Democratic Party’s increasingly influential democratic-socialist wing are pressing for their own major legislation to pass the House, even if it...

    Local Democratic officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida are recklessly violating state law in what may be an attempt to overturn the results of Tuesday’s midterm elections for governor and the U.S. Senate in the Sunshine State. This looks like a repeat of the actions in Florida in the 2000 presidential election, when Democratic officials ignored state election laws – and were slapped down by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 7-2 decision. Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda C. Snipes said Tuesday night that 634,000 votes had been cast in the county. But by Thursday night,...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove ripped into President Donald Trump on “America’s Newsroom” Friday for considering a Justice Department investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think it’s unwise for any president of any party to look like he is demanding that the Justice Department investigate his political opponents,” Rove said. “It is just unseemly. I think a good test of this is turnabout. What if Hillary Clinton had won the election? Would we be excited about Hillary Clinton calling upon her attorney general to investigate Donald Trump over the meeting at the Trump Tower?” Rove said that’s not...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove on Monday said President Trump should lower expectations ahead of November’s midterm elections, not predict a "red wave" of GOP victories. Rove, appearing on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” pointed out that the party that holds the White House historically has lost seats in a midterm election. “In all likelihood, Republicans are going to lose seats in the House, they’re going to lose governorships, they’re going to lose state legislative seats,” Rove said. “I think the president would be well-advised to say we face an uphill fight but he feels good about it, rather than set the...

    President Trump is justifiably proud of passing tax reform last December, telling audiences “because of our tax cuts, you can keep more of your hard-earned money.” He’s right: American taxpayers will save $75 billion this year and $189 billion next year, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. Yet the president’s tariffs on imports could negate much of the tax relief he’s been bragging about. These levies are not paid by foreign countries or companies. They are passed on to American consumers in the form of higher prices for either foreign or U.S.-made goods. The Trump tariffs are now clawing...

    GOP strategist Karl Rove says Republicans are in danger of losing their majority in the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections. Asked how much trouble Republicans are in, Mr. Rove responded, “Big trouble.” “The president’s approval rating is in the high 30s, and the Republicans are 24 seats in the House away from losing their majorities,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”
