  • Sanctuary cities lose access to federal grants that require complying with federal immigration...

    "Sanctuary cities lose access to federal grants that require complying with federal immigration law – cue the histrionics" Late on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Session issued a memorandum to all the “grant-making components” within the Justice Department cutting off any grants to sanctuary jurisdictions. In what will no doubt be a surprise to many in the media who misinterpreted the April injunction issued by Judge William Orrick (an Obama appointee) in the lawsuit filed by the City of San Francisco and Santa Clara County, Sessions’ action complies fully with that order. The May 22 memorandum outlines that any city or...
  • Despite Record Reporting Bias, Trump’s Base Remains Solid

    A recent Harvard study confirms that there has been record-breaking reporting bias against President Donald Trump. An astounding 80% of the stories about Trump by the mainstream media during his first 100 days in office have been negative. The real story, however, is how Trump’s base remains solid, unfazed by the persistent media negativity. Trump’s approval rating has not fallen to the low ratings of former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, the prior Republicans in the White House. For many of Trump’s supporters, the unrelenting bias against him simply confirms the nature of the problem facing...

  • Trump Effect? Household Income Hits 15-Year High

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 5/23/2017 | John Merline
    For eight years, President Obama endlessly talked about "middle class" economics. All the while, middle-class family incomes were stagnant. Now they are on the rise. Could Trumponomics be the reason? In April, real median household income reached $59,361, according to the latest report from Sentier Research. That's up 2% since January, and is as high as it's been since February 2002. Expressed as an index, median household income was 100.9 in April, which is the first time this index has topped 100 since December 2008. By comparison, this index was also lower when Obama left office than when he came...

    *** The difference between Barry's narcissism and Trump is: Trump looks at the most beautiful girl at the party and says, "I can get her number." Barry lookz at the same girl and say, "She wants me." Trump pursues the girl, Barry walks away, because obviously, she is not good enough for him, besides, someone told him there's a mirror in the next room. Arrogance is the recognition of achievement or possibility. The other is conceit, which pretends it's lack of achievement is worthy of a geek medal...dorks... I'll take the ladies.

    The Hill ^ | Anthony H. Cordesman
    When it came to the core of his speech — the fight against terrorism — the president’s choice in words really mattered. He avoided phrases like “Islamic extremism,” but repeatedly made it clear that the U.S. would focus on the threats posed by “terrorists and extremists.” He carefully avoided the financial aspects of burden sharing — something all too necessary in a Saudi Arabia spending something like three times the percent of its GDP on defense as the U.S. and nearly six times the percentage of the average NATO ally. But, he was perfectly clear about what he expected from...

    Let’s play “One of these things is not like the other one.” Compare, if you will, Barack Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo to the Muslim world with Donald Trump’s speech today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. There was some overlap: both indulged heartily in the usual political boilerplate and délicatesse: honored to be here, working together, Islam’s great contribution to culture, how splendid is the Middle East, terrorism is not coterminous with Islam, etc., etc. But that’s where the similarity ended.  Trump’s speech was a forthright, America First, speech, Obama’s an accommodationist’s dream. {snip} Trump’s speech—and, again, his entire performance—struck me...

    At premieres, beach parties, wine-soaked dinners and business meetings, the topic du jour at this year’s Cannes Film Festival: Trump. Buyers and sellers, studios executives and stars confess they’re glued to their smartphones, waiting for email alerts and updates on the latest White House scandal. “I’m obsessed with it,” said Stuart Ford, CEO of sales and production company IM Global. “The first thing I do in the morning is check the news. The last thing I do at night is check the news.” Some of the films searching for distribution along the Croisette grapple directly or indirectly with Trump and...

    Someday, future generations of Americans will look back on us and wonder how and why such a rich and seemingly enlightened society, so blessed and endowed with the capacity to protect and enhance vulnerable human life, could have instead so aggressively promoted death to children by abortion—both here and overseas. They will note that we prided ourselves on our commitment to human rights, while precluding virtually all protection to the most persecuted minority in the world today—unborn children. And they will demand to know why dismembering a child with sharp knives, pulverizing an infant with powerful suction devices, or chemically...

    U.S. private equity firm Blackstone and Saudi Arabia's main sovereign wealth fund said on Saturday they planned to create a $40 billion vehicle to invest in infrastructure projects, mainly in the United States. Blackstone and the Public Investment Fund (PIF) signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding for the project, which will depend on further negotiations. The proposed venture was announced during the visit to Riyadh of President Donald Trump, who has said he wants to rebuild crumbling U.S. infrastructure....

    Two veteran Israeli and Palestinian negotiators, who logged many hours together in failed efforts to strike a deal, said Saturday they are optimistic about President Donald Trump's Mideast bid. Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat and former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni spoke in separate interviews on the sidelines of a regional World Economic Forum meeting. Erekat remains the chief Palestinian negotiator while Livni is a leading opposition member of Israel's parliament....

    During Donald Trump’s first visit to Saudi Arabia since taking office, many noticed that President Trump didn’t bow to the Saudi King like Obama did. In 2009, then President Obama made a point to bow to Saudi King Salman. However, as President Trump shook hands with the Saudi King after arriving Saturday morning, he broke from Obama by not bowing:

    Something is afoot. Even the circumspect Tucker Carlson has been warning how divided and close to losing it we are. The left is full of “passionate intensity” (a euphemism), while many of us on the right are lacking conviction to fight for good. However, there are a lot of positive moves coming from Washington, and it’s important that we highlight them, since the media won’t. We have a gifted group in power, they are doing what is necessary to allow us to hold. As conservatives, it’s important to understand what their accomplishments are, how they are helping, and do what...
  • Why Trump is stronger than he looks: Repeated polling reveals trends that single sampling does not

    The Washington Times ^ | May 9, 2017 | J.T. Young
    To paraphrase Mark Twain: Reports of President Trump’s political death “are greatly exaggerated.” Simply scanning approval ratings overlooks the many trends determining a president’s effectiveness and re-electability. Many of these favor Mr. Trump. As his 100-day milestone passed, the president’s lagging approval ratings were frequently cited. Two major problems exist with this point-in-time comparative approach: the moment when it is taken and to what it is compared. Considering the uniqueness of Mr. Trump’s campaign and presidency thus far, applying conventional measures to the unconventional is questionable. Rather than choosing just a single sample, an average over time offers a better...
  • Trump Fills 10 More Judicial Seats Mitch McConnell Stole From Obama

    President Trump announced ten federal judicial nominees today. All of them will sail through the Senate. All of them will fill seats stolen from President Obama. There are over 120 vacancies in the federal judiciary, and Obama had nominated people to fill 81 of them. But by the end of his two terms, 59 of those nominees were still in limbo, because Mitch McConnell’s Senate confirmed only 22. This week, ten new nominees were announced to take their seats—as promised, mostly conservative firebrands picked by the Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society—with many more sure to come. The Republicans’ strategy of...

    Thursday was an amazing day in Washington, D.C. You can’t say that very often. First, it was the National Day of Prayer. It’s amazing to think about millions of Americans praying across our nation. We need it, especially in the swamp. Second, as Vice President Mike Pence explained, Congress finally passed a bill that delivered the “beginning of the end of Obamacare.” Let’s hope the Senate approves and passes it soon, and hands it over to President Trump for signing into law. Third, under the radar was another huge act of liberty: President Trump signed an executive order rolling back...
  • Polls: Trump Keeps and Expands His Base

    Despite the marches and protests of Brownshirt fascists everywhere, and despite the unprecedented negative fake news coverage of his first 100 days, Trump’s supporters are unfazed. Just a week ago Pew showed that he had lost almost none of his base. Now, a new People’s Pundit Daily poll out of Florida shows that Trump remains very strong in the Sunshine State. Richard Baris, the president of PPD, says “Since the election, the President’s support among whites has held roughly even in the nation’s largest battleground state, while his support among non-whites, particularly Hispanics, has risen slightly on almost ever measure.”...

    President Trump’s executive order on religious liberty has garnered a mixed reaction, with the left moaning about violations of the separation of church and state and some of the right saying it is watered down meaningless rhetoric to placate his religious base, As Ryan T. Anderson at the Daily Signal opines: In reality, what Trump issued today is rather weak. All it includes is general language about the importance of religious liberty, saying the executive branch “will honor and enforce” existing laws and instructing the Department of Justice to “issue guidance” on existing law; directives to the Department of the...

    All speakers in the Rose Garden celebration agreed that the 217-213 House victory; to repeal and replace Obamacare, was a victory,non-political, and for the People. Well, it was a victory, and we'll take it. There is a long way to go, and at least none there denied it. Aside of the sore backs and red palms, something did emerge from all the mutual admiration that did surprise me, and I hope is a good sign for the future. It seemed that Trump, and especially Rep, House Leadership, used this narrow victory to make peace and give Trump a lot of...

    reuters ^ | May 4, 2017 | David Morgan and Yasmeen Abutaleb
    The U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill on Thursday to repeal major parts of Obamacare and replace it with a Republican healthcare plan, handing President Donald Trump his biggest legislative victory but setting up a tough fight in the Senate. With the 217-213 vote, Republicans obtained just enough support to push the legislation through the House, sending it to the Senate for consideration. No Democrats voted for the bill. The bill's passage represented a vital step toward fulfilling a top Trump campaign pledge and a seven-year Republican quest to dismantle Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law. But...
