  • Rush Limbaugh: A Loving Brother and 'a Friend to Countless Americans'

    02/14/2020 3:44:24 AM PST · by Kaslin · 41 replies ^ | February 14, 2020 | David Limbaugh
    I am uniquely blessed to be Rush Limbaugh's brother in ways too numerous to count, and I am blessed to be in the special position of witnessing firsthand the outpouring of love and prayers from his, family, friends and fans. His wife, Kathryn, has been amazing and a rock throughout. I could fill a book with the well-wishes I've received. I sent Rush a link to my "mentions" column on Twitter so he could scroll through it and see for himself what he means to so many people. These tender expressions of goodwill are uplifting and spiritually affirming. God...
  • The Israeli-Palestinian Peace Plan Is a Much-Needed Dose of Reality

    01/31/2020 5:23:03 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | January 31, 2020 | David Harsanyi
    It's unlikely that Donald Trump's new Israeli-Palestinian peace plan will succeed. Yet, it's the best of any recent offerings because it dispels poisonous fictions that have held back negotiations for decades. The reality is that there will never be a Palestinian "right of return" to Israel, since such a policy would destroy the Jewish character of the state. Palestinians are not getting their great-granddads' houses in Jaffa back any more than the hundreds of thousands of Sephardic Jews who were expelled from Muslim lands after Israel's 1948 war of independence are reclaiming their property. The difference is that one of...
  • Mexico Is Paying for Trump's Wall

    01/26/2020 3:37:33 AM PST · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | January 26, 2020 | Wayne Allyn Root
    President Donald Trump has done it again. He just keeps winning. He just keeps proving the Trump Doctrine works magnificently. Don't look now, but Trump has even built his wall -- and Mexico is paying for it. More on that later. First, I want to explain how and why Trump is winning like no president in history. Even UFC legend Conor McGregor just called President Trump the GOAT -- as in "the greatest of all time." It's all because of the Trump Doctrine, a mixture of Trump's unique business acumen and negotiating skills. No other politician in the world...
  • Policy Innovator Donald Trump

    01/24/2020 8:04:38 AM PST · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | January 24, 2020 | Neil Patel
    Not many people think of President Donald Trump as a detailed policy innovator. His detractors still view him as a buffoon unequipped to run the country. His supporters view him as a guy who has succeeded on great instincts. Not many view the president as a guy who gets under the hood to study the details of policy options. But with historically low unemployment; a booming stock market; trade deals in place with China, Mexico and Canada; and many other wins under his belt, it's a good time to examine the president's policy record. Maybe the Trump team deserves more...
  • War Worries Transcend Trump:

    01/15/2020 7:03:08 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | January 15, 2020 | Jacob Sullum
    Matt Gaetz's campaign website features press quotes describing the Florida Republican as "Trump's best buddy," "Trump's ultimate defender," and "the Trumpiest congressman in Trump's Washington." Gaetz clearly was not driven by hatred of the president when he voted for last week's House resolution against an unauthorized war with Iran. Although it may be hard to believe in these hyper-partisan times, Gaetz, a self-described "constitutional conservative," was defending a principle he thinks is more important than loyalty to one man or one party. He was standing up for the legislative branch's long-neglected but crucial role in deciding when the country should...
  • Trump's Handling of Iran Deserves Praise

    01/10/2020 4:21:03 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | January 10, 2020 | Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel
    Is it possible President Donald Trump may have perfectly played the Iran conflict? He's been criticized for different and various reasons by people on the left and on the right. There's been a real concern that the president could get us into a war with Iran. It's early but it seems like Trump has effectively fired a warning shot at Iran to ramp down their continuing escalations -- without risking more American lives. If that's how it plays out, it will be hard not to credit the president for his handling of this matter. To those critical of the...
  • Impeachment Witness Says Case Against Trump 'Collapses Under Weight of Time'

    01/04/2020 1:11:27 PM PST · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | January 4, 2020 | Bronson Stocking
    Democrats are demanding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell call a list of witnesses the Democrats believe will bolster their impeachment case against President Trump. In their rush to impeach the president before the holidays, the Democrats abandoned their legal fight to subpoena the witnesses they once proclaimed were central to building their case. Now Democrats want a do-over in the Senate.  Jonathan Turley, the Republican witness and legal scholar who testified before the House Judiciary Committee during the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry, wrote an op-ed explaining how the Democrats' weak case against the president is already collapsing as Senate Republicans continue to...
  • Trump Secures Release of American Student Held in Iran

    On Saturday, the State Department secured the release of Xiyue Wang, an American graduate student who was being held prisoner in Iran for the past three years. Wang had been conducting research in Iran as part of his doctoral thesis when he was arrested in 2016 and charged with spying for the United States government.  As part of the exchange, the U.S. released Masoud Soleimani, an Iranian scientist who had been arrested and convicted last year for violating U.S. trade sanctions against Iran. According to The New York Times, U.S. officials are calling Soleimani's release a low price to pay...

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: The author who goes by “Anonymous” and who made national headlines by releasing a book billed as a behind-the-scenes, true-life look at this White House’s administration — in a negative light, of course — has now rippled media cycles once again with this not-so-thinly-veiled threat, aimed right at President Donald Trump, that goes: “[You’ve] not heard the last of me.” Ooh, scary. Impeachment is losing favor with independent voters, so the left’s gotta drum up something else to jab at Trump. Is that how it goes? So send in the coward to titillate from the shadows. This is the...
  • End The Democrat Senate Filibuster Against Aurelia Skipwith

    Aurelia Skipwith may not be a household name, but she is an outstanding example of how many African-Americans have overcome the past. Her accomplishments are impressive and seemed unattainable to past generations of our parents and grandparents. Although many believe our whole race never goes outdoors, she is expected to be confirmed by the Senate as President Trump’s Director of Fish & Wildlife at the Interior Department. Ms. Skipwith’s family is from Columbus, Mississippi, where her mother picked cotton and her father joined the Navy at the height of the Vietnam War and moved the family moved to Indianapolis. This...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Sept. 17, 2019
    President Trump told reporters on Air Force One that he now has five finalists for the position of national security adviser. Trump named attorney and U.S. hostage negotiator Robert O’Brien, assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Ricky Waddell, Energy Department nuclear security expert Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, former National Security Council Chief of Staff Fred Fleitz and retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, who currently advises Vice President Mike Pence. Trump implicitly ruled out leading contenders with large bases of support, including retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor, a favorite of non-interventionists, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, and U.S....

    he Trump administration has prepared draft legislation to expedite capital cases against mass shooters, it announced Monday. Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, told reporters to expect the legislation as part of a larger gun control proposal from the White House, Fox News reports. The total legislative package is expected after Congress returns from its August recess on September 9th. The announcement comes after a mass shooting in Odessa, Texas, in which a gunman killed five and injured 22 people. On Sunday, President Donald Trump called the shooter "another very sick person," and said that shootings were...
  • The Left is Panicking Over Much Needed Changes to the Endangered Species Act

    08/12/2019 11:14:35 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 21 replies ^ | August 12, 2019 | Katie Pavlich
    The Trump administration announced new and long overdue changes to the Endangered Species Act Monday morning. “The best way to uphold the Endangered Species Act is to do everything we can to ensure it remains effective in achieving its ultimate goal—recovery of our rarest species. The Act’s effectiveness rests on clear, consistent and efficient implementation,” Interior Secretary David Bernhardt released in a statement. “An effectively administered Act ensures more resources can go where they will do the most good: on-the-ground conservation.” "The revisions to the regulations clarify that the standards for delisting and reclassification of a species consider the same five...

    The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against former Trump aide and reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman for allegedly failing to file a required financial disclosure report after she was fired in 2017. The civil complaint alleges that the former “Apprentice” star “knowingly and willfully” failed to “file the required public financial disclosure report after her employment terminated with the Executive Office of the President.” In addition, the lawsuit states that Manigault Newman was given a “post-government employment briefing” in December 2017, following her firing, in which “she was advised of her obligation … to file a termination financial...
  • The Democrats' Civil War Has Begun

    There are no two ways about it, the Democrats are in a civil war. Of course, primary season has begun with the passing of the first round of Democratic debates, so one would expect a certain degree of infighting and jockeying for position, as with any political party at such a time. Yet something darker, more deranged, more Orwellian has taken hold. The socialist self-destruction is great for Donald Trump, great for America, and truly great entertainment. The Democrats may as well be living on Animal Farm.For those who have missed it, Nancy Pelosi, the Trotsky/Snowball old school socialist of...

    President Donald Trump likes to keep score. Well, here's a score for him: America, zero; while the rest of the world keeps tallying up free trade points. That's right; while American consumers have been waiting for well over a year to see some resolution to the various trade disputes started by Trump, other countries have agreed to lower their tariffs against each other and signed free trade agreements with one another. Meanwhile, American consumers and exporters are drowning in a sea of high tariffs. Let's recap. For the last year and a half, the president has unilaterally imposed tariffs...
  • Tlaib Had A Sudden Awakening And Now Understands What Border Patrol Agents Have Said For Years

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Wednesday spoke with CNN's Wolf Blitzer about the Democratic caucus' trip to the southern border, where they toured multiple facilities in Texas. What's interesting though, is Tlaib said exactly what Border Patrol agents have been saying for years."I can tell you that the couple of agents that have taken me aside were imploring me to please, report back what's happening here because they don't want any part of it anymore," Tlaib explained. "And they do actually feel like it's making us less safe because they're not at the border. You know, in their eyes, they're not...

  • A Better Approach to a Worsening Iran Situation

    06/27/2019 7:08:25 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | June 27, 2019 | Armstrong Williams
    President Donald Trump's freewheeling style is one of the main reasons that Americans rejected the conventional candidates and instead elected him to serve as president of the United States. While he is undeniably entertaining and possesses personal magnetism that helped make him a business tycoon and television star, when it comes to his leadership concerning Iran, the stakes are too high for Trump to act as if he is performing in a reality TV show. Iran is the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism. The Islamic Republic's dangerous tentacles reach worldwide, where it provides support to violent terrorist groups. The...
  • Must We Wage War with Iran?

    "The Pentagon has released new color photos as proof that Iran was behind last week's attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman," ABC News reported. Hours before that attack, Iranians launched surface-to-air missile at a U.S. drone monitoring the tankers. The missile missed. In response, 1,000 American troops are being dispatched to the region for the declared purpose of defending American forces already there. Reacting to these charges and U.S. military moves and threats, Iran has said it will resume (did it ever stop?) the enrichment of uranium by next week, which it had pledged not to...
