  • 98 percent of Republican military veterans approve of Trump: Poll

    The Washington Times ^ | May 29, 2017 | Jennifer Harper
    President Trump has some unwavering support from a very unique demographic: Republican military veterans. An extensive new Pew Research Center reveals that 98 percent of these GOP vets approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing. He has some fans across the greater population of vets as well. The poll also found that 54 percent of them also approve of the president. Another 47 percent of independent vets and 10 percent of Democratic vets approve of the president. “U.S. veterans, who broadly supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election, have remained positive about the job he is doing as president,”...
  • Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump

    When people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options: 1) Cease admiring them or 2) try to understand them and change their minds. In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason -- beside the fact that I simply like many of them -- is what I refer to as "moral bank accounts." Every time we do good, we make a deposit into our moral bank account. And every time we do something bad, we make...
  • Trump’s War With CIA Was Preceded By Kennedy’s

    Fairfield Sun Times ^ | March 28 2017 | Frank Miele
    The New York Times, in a front-page story, said that the president “wanted to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” Whether that quote is accurate or not we don’t know, but it makes sense that after the agency damaged the president’s reputation so badly, he would react with such anger. If you are a student of history, you already know that the president who swore a vendetta against the Central Intelligence Agency wasn’t Donald Trump, but John F. Kennedy, and that although he did not abolish the agency before his assassination, he did...
  • Trump Fired A Corrupt VA Official. Then The VA Stepped In And Said Not So Fast

    The Daily Caller ^ | 5/29/2017 | LUKE ROSIAK
    A notoriously corrupt Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) manager fired in the first day of President Donald Trump’s presidency — to rousing acclaim from veterans who heralded it as a sign of lasting reform — has been returned to work by VA officials after he filed a civil-service protections appeal. The return of the Puerto Rico hospital director is the latest example of Trump’s reform efforts encountering the entrenchment of what he has called Washington’s swamp, and comes in the same month a court ruled that the VA may not even be able to fire the Phoenix hospital director, who...

    A lobbyist friend who visited Capitol Hill recently came away horrified. “I now am ready to believe that the partisanship is so unhinged that it’s a threat to the Republic,” she writes in an email. This Washington hysteria comes at a time of full employment, booming stocks, relative peace and technological marvels like an electronic robot named Alexa who fetches and plays for you songs of your choice. What’s the fuss about? We all know the answer: Donald Trump. The Washington body politic has been invaded by an alien presence and, true to the laws of nature, that body is...
  • Camille Paglia: Democrats are colluding with the media to create chaos

    Washington Examiner ^ | 16 May 2017 | Emily Jashinsky
    Camille Paglia is much more worried about the media than about the steady string of Trump-related scandals they claim to be uncovering. In a Tuesday interview with the Washington Examiner, Paglia excoriated the press for its coverage of Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his alleged sharing of classified information with Russian officials. Fresh off a spirited panel with Christina Hoff Sommers hosted by the Independent Women's Forum, the iconic feminist dissident, who serves as a professor of media studies at the University of the Arts, accused journalists of colluding with the Democratic Party in an effort...

    Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidential election, just can’t quite seem to get it through her head — that she lost the presidential election. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, she told the writer she should’ve won — she would’ve won — had it not been for those dang, pesky Russians. Her words: “I would have won had I not been subjected to the unprecedented attacks by [former FBI chief James] Comey and the Russians, aided and abetted by the suppression of the vote, particularly in Wisconsin,” where I didn’t bother to campaign. Oops — that last was...

    The upsurge in economic activity that has followed from Donald Trump's elevation to the presidency has an unpublicized "dark side" according to a recent newscast from CBS. Network correspondent Norah O'Donnell explained that "what the Trump Administration failed to consider was that getting people off unemployment and welfare and into the workforce means more will be on the roads driving to their jobs. This exposes them to higher risk of death and injury in traffic crashes." "Worse, the risk isn't confined to the work commute," O'Donnell breathlessly told viewers. "When people are more prosperous they also travel more for recreation....

    What may turn into the most explosive investigation in U.S. history regarding the rampant crime, corruption, and sedition of many if not most of the high-level players in the Obama regime It was a good plan. After their thunderous loss in the presidential election, our country’s premier Olympian liars—Democrats all—put their heads together to develop a plan to accuse the newly elected president of collusion with our enemy, to get him impeached forthwith, and ultimately to preserve the communist/jihadist government that it took the previous eight years of formal power and a hundred years of planning to accomplish. First, it...

    Fatah's Revolutionary Council congratulated the "heroic" hunger-striking terrorists for their "victory" over Israel in what the terror organization called a "fight for freedom and honor." In a committee meeting titled "The meeting for freedom and honor in support of our heroic prisoners," the Council expressed its pride and admiration of the prisoners for "standing strong," and said the Fatah leader and their freedom and their families' honor would continue to top Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' priority list. The Council also gave full support to Abbas' "nationalist" views and credited him with expressing "Palestinian" values in his meeting with US...

    Berlin (AFP) — Germany unleashed a volley of criticism Monday against US President Donald Trump, slamming his "short-sighted" policies that have "weakened the West" and hurt European interests. The sharp words from Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel came after Trump concluded his first official tour abroad which took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Brussels and then Italy for a G7 summit. They followed Chancellor Angela Merkel's warning on Sunday that the United States and Britain may no longer be completely reliable partners. Germany's exasperation was laid bare after the G7 summit which wrapped up on Saturday with the US refusing so...

    After placing a wreath at the Tomb of The Unknown, and delivering a Memorial Day speech, President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence walked to place flowers on the headstone of First Lieutenant Robert Kelly -son of DHS Secretary General John Kelly- who was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. Along the route through section #60 (reserved for Iraq and Afghanistan conflict) the President and Vice-President met with families of the fallen, our nation’s finest. Obviously, many were overwhelmed and emotional as President Trump and VP Pence listened to them talk about their sons, daughters, spouses, moms and dads.

    Weeks after Accuracy in Media exposed the nature of this phony document in a three-part series, “The Final Truth About the Trump Dossier,” Wall Street Journal columnist Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., has stumbled upon the truth, saying the dossier smells like a Russian plant. Our verdict was that the dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele was part of a Russian effort, financed by Hillary Clinton donors, to smear Trump. That’s what the evidence shows.

    In the next edition of Donald Trump can do nothing right ever, we give you the National Anthem. Shortly before delivering Memorial Day remarks Monday at Arlington National Cemetery, President Trump joined with the audience in the traditional signing of America’s national song. Unlike a lot in Trumpland, it all went off smoothly — but that still didn’t stop a certain class of Twitter liberal from taking exception. The crime this time was Trump’s personal rendition of the anthem, which trolls online apparently deemed insufficiently respectful — or something. Here’s a snapshot of the miasma of faux outrage. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) …...

    While Rex Tillerson fills the official duties of America's top diplomat, Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law, has a parallel foreign policy role that was on full display during Trump's first foreign trip last week. Why it matters: Kushner is viewed internally as the official most capable of gathering competing viewpoints and translating/presenting the policy to Trump. That's why Trump has put him in charge of issues as big as Middle East peace, and why he has served as point person on the U.S. relationship with China. But he's facing new scrutiny amid reports he tried to set up secret communications...

    The Trump Administration's budget aims to reduce the United States' annual contribution toward funding the United Nations. Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, complained that "the amounts laid out in the budget aren't sufficient for us to continue the vital work of the organization." Currently, there are 193 member nations in the UN. The US has been paying 22% of the UN's $5.4 billion "core" budget and 28% of the UN's $7.9 billion "peacekeeping" budget. Trump's budget proposal would cut the US contribution by one-third and cap the US share of "peacekeeping" at 25%. Dujarric declared that "the...
