  • Trump’s improved standing, energized GOP voters worry Democrats

    After months of confidence that public discontent with President Trump would lift Democrats back to power in Congress, some party leaders are fretting that their advantages in this year’s midterms are eroding amid a shifting political landscape. Driving their concerns are Trump’s approval rating, which has ticked upward in recent weeks, and high Republican turnout in some recent primaries, suggesting the GOP base remains energized. What’s more, Republicans stand to benefit politically from a thriving economy and are choosing formidable candidates to take on vulnerable Democratic senators. One of their biggest sources of anxiety is the Senate race in Florida,...

    Did anyone happen to catch David Brooks’s latest column, “Donald Trump’s Lizard Wisdom,” in the New York Times? I about fell out of my chair, because Brooks almost tacitly admits that maybe he was wrong about Trump. Referring to Trump’s experience dealing with the mobbed-up New York construction scene in his long real estate career, Brooks says: And yet I can’t help but wonder if that kind of background has provided a decent education for dealing with the sort of hopped-up mobsters running parts of the world today. There is growing reason to believe that Donald Trump understands the thug...
  • President Donald Trump’s Best Week Ever

    05/12/2018 10:31:14 AM PDT · by ethom · 21 replies
    Donald Trump has just enjoyed the best week of his presidency. His detractors, whose mood swings remain inversely proportional to the president’s popularity, suffered through a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. Instead of a path to war, the president’s words persuaded the North Koreans to release three Americans held in captivity, formally end their war with South Korea, and agree to June talks with the United States on neutral ground. Talk of a Nobel Peace Prize abounds. Domestically, tranquility ensues. April’s jobs report indicates a 3.9 unemployment rate. This marks the first time in the new millennium that...

    Fulfilling a campaign promise, earlier this week Donald Trump officially withdrew the United States from the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” For critics of the deal who recognized its flaws and did not turn a blind eye to evidence Iran was violating the terms of the agreement, this was welcome news a long time coming. Trump fulfilled his promise, and the days of kowtowing to terror-sponsoring regimes are behind us.Naturally, Obama administration alums are throwing hissy fits. Obama himself released a statement...

    Late Monday night, the White House showed off the finishing touches of first lady Melania Trump's first state dinner, as she and President Trump will host French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife at the executive mansion tomorrow. Reporters were briefly allowed into the White House and were greeted by gold table settings, gold silverware, gold candlesticks, gold wine glasses, gold chairs – situated elegantly around puffs of green and white flowers – in the candlelit state dining room. At each of the 130 place settings there was a menu, with the White House seal and the fleur-de-lis, which were...

    When French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, arrive Tuesday at the White House, they will be greeted by a military band playing strains of brassy notes and a 21-gun salute in a pomp-filled ceremony that will be followed by a state dinner. The first official state visit of the Trump administration will be the biggest moment yet for first lady Melania Trump to play hostess-in-chief, an element of her role she enjoys more than some of the other duties that have come with her position.(snip) “Remember, she has a design background,” Grisham said, referencing Trump’s career as a...

    Former FBI director James Comey said in a recent interview that he has “never” seen President Trump laugh. Comey made the comment to George Stephanopoulos in a Sunday interview on ABC’s “20/20.” “You notice something else – during that dinner,” Stephanopoulos said to Comey during the interview, according to CNN. “You say the President didn't laugh.” “Yeah, not at all,” the former director responded. “And I was struck by it. So struck by it, it stayed with me, that I've never seen him laugh.” “I’m not a comedian but I occasionally say something that's funny that people chuckle with each...

    The speech was written. A cast of relatable Americans with emotional stories was standing by to reinforce the message. But President Donald Trump was in no mood to play along. “The hell with it,” Trump said, recounting the scene with his aides to a West Virginia crowd last week, Trump tossed the staff-prepared remarks on tax cuts in the air and ducked as the paper fluttered to the floor. “I said, ‘This is boring, come on.’ Tell it like it is.” This president has never been one to stick to a script, but that abandoned speech illustrates a new phase...
  • The Conspiracy Theory That Says Trump Is a Genius

    04/06/2018 6:11:37 AM PDT · by MNDude · 55 replies
    Last week Roseanne Barr — who, with the hit reboot of her show, has become one of the most prominent Donald Trump supporters in the country — tweeted that the president has freed hundreds of children a month from sexual bondage. “He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere,” she wrote. (The tweet has since been deleted.) Barr’s tweet, puzzling to the casual observer, was a reference to QAnon, an expansive, complicated pro-Trump conspiracy theory. The theory is fascinating as an artifact of our current political derangement, but more than that, it’s profoundly revealing about the lengths to...

    If the American Dream was flat-lining, the Trump administration may be acting as a defibrillator. Against furious opposition from within and without, President Trump is taking a step in line with the Republicans who made the GOP America’s Party. Snip Establishment Republicans present a cheap simulacrum of their former glory and are America’s Party no more, they are Wall Street’s party, wittingly or otherwise. The GOP is largely disconnected from the hearts and minds of Middle America, a consequence of a Republican establishment that has enshrined free trade—pro aris et focis be damned—as the singular sacred cow of our republic....

    New Jersey saw one of the nation's biggest surges in arrests by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents last year as the federal government cracked down on unauthorized immigrants during President Donald Trump's first year in office. There were 3,189 arrests in fiscal year 2017 in ICE's Newark region, which encompasses all of New Jersey, according to data released by the agency. That is a 42 percent increase compared to the previous year. New Jersey's increase was among the highest in the nation, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan demographic research group. Nationwide, ICE...

  • Reforming The Bureaucracy: How Trump Is Taming The Leviathan

    02/14/2018 6:55:55 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 26 replies
    Governing: While our distracted national media fawn over a murderous dictator's evil sister and pretend that the Rob Porter White House scandal means something, President Trump continues to remake our government. Quietly, Trump has begun to whittle away at the power and permanence of our nation's bureaucratic ruling class by slashing regulations and limiting powers that Congress foolishly has allowed it to take over. It's not merely the size of the bureaucracy that matters. It's the increasing power that gives the anonymous men and women who toil in the U.S.' unofficial fourth branch of government immense say over nearly every...
