  • Trump: What We Accomplished On Our Asia Trip

    My Mother Lode ^ | November 20, 2017 | Mark Truppner
    Donald Trump discussed his 12-day trip to Asia and was Monday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”. Here are his words: “I returned from a historic 12-day trip to Asia. This journey took us to five nations to meet with dozens of foreign leaders, participate in three formal state visits, and attend three key regional summits. It was the longest visit to the region by an American President in more than a quarter of a century. Everywhere we went, our foreign hosts greeted the American delegation, myself included, with incredible warmth, hospitality, and most importantly respect. And this great respect showed...

  • Blue State Blues: After 300 Days, Trump Administration Finds a Rhythm

    11/17/2017 7:23:09 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 17 replies
    Thursday, November 16 marked 300 days since President Donald Trump took office on January 20. The third 100 days were even more tumultuous than the first 100 and second 100. And much remains undone. There are still jobs to fill, promises to keep, and bills to sign. Trump has yet to notch a major legislative achievement (thanks, in part, to infighting and incompetence in Congress). But the Trump administration seems, at last, to have found a rhythm. If the first 100 days were defined by Trump’s executive orders, and the second 100 days by the controversy over James Comey and...
  • 2017: ICE agents rebel, say Trump ‘betrayed’ them by retaining Obama’s people

    The country’s immigration enforcement officers launched a website Tuesday demanding that President Trump do more to clean up their agency, saying he has left the Obama team in place and it’s stymying his goal of enforcing laws on the books. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement supervisors in Philadelphia banned officers from wearing bulletproof vests during an operation in the dangerous “badlands” section in the city’s north for fear of offending the immigrant community. Meanwhile, officers in one Utah city are required to give city officials seven days’ heads-up before arresting anyone — and by the time they go to make...

    The New York Post ^ | November 11, 2017 | The Post Editorial Board
    Foreign tourism to New York City is set to rise 3.6 percent this year — defying yet another of the many doomsday predictions about Donald Trump’s presidency. Back in February, the city tourism agency said Trump’s “travel ban and related rhetoric” would mean a drop of 300,000 visitors this year. But the NYC & Co. prophecy proved false. Of course, other predictions were more dire — particularly those about the stock market. Finance expert Steve Rattner foresaw “a market crash of historic proportions” under a President Trump. Moody’s warned of a “weaker” economy. Many said 2 percent GDP growth was...
  • Donald Trump’s Unqualified Judges (the anti-constitutionalist ABA no longer has veto power)

    For the fourth time since January, one of President Trump’s nominees for a Federal Judgeship has received the extremely rare “not qualified” rating from the American Bar Association, and this time it’s a man who has never tried a case in a Federal or State Court in what amounts to a very short, limited career: A 36-year-old lawyer who has never tried a case and who was unanimously deemed “not qualified” by the American Bar Association has been approved for a lifetime federal district judgeship by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The lawyer, Brett Talley, is the fourth judicial nominee under...
  • Is There Nothing Republicans Can’t Screw Up?

    If you’d told me last year that complete Republican control of Congress and the White House would lead to nothing getting done, I would have laughed at you. Of course, last year I would have laughed at the idea of complete Republican control of government, so the idea of no legislative accomplishments would have been a joke not worth telling. Turns out all the jokes, at least so far, have been on us. That Obamacare repeal fell apart – or, more correctly, never really got off the ground – was a surprise only because Republicans had promised it for years...

  • John McCain reportedly said that tax reform is ‘DOA in the Senate’

    11/07/2017 8:00:46 AM PST · by SeekAndFind · 99 replies
    GOP Senator John McCain has done this country and the people innumerable services for which we unreservedly thank him. But the Arizona lawmaker’s anti-Trump stance and vocal opposition to the President’s practically every legislative proposal could jeopardize his reputation among the masses. We could perhaps forgive him for his unreserved efforts toward killing Mr. Trump’s long-planned and promised replacement of Obamacare, but that’s where the people draw the line. With Mr. Trump diligently working toward getting his tax reform passed, it may turn out that McCain could again play a decisive role in the bill’s future. As Zero Hedge has...

    China's trade surplus with the United States slipped from a record high last month, according to official data published Wednesday, but still rose past $300 billion over the first 10 months of the year just as President Donald Trump arrives for a state visit in Beijing. China's customs office said total exports from the word's second largest economy grew an annual 6.9% last month, slowing from the 8.1% pace recorded in September. Import growth, however, was impressively strong at 17.2%, although again slower than the 18.1% pace notched in the previous month. The figures also reveal a 37.8% increase in...

    RUSH: “Twelve Months Later, Trump Would Probably Still Win the 2016 Election.” That’s the headline of a piece in the Washington Post today. This is a bombshell story, when you measure this against nearly universal coverage from the Drive-By Media for the past year. “Trump’s an idiot! Trump’s a buffoon! Trump’s stole the election! He cheated. He colluded with Russia. Trump is hated. Trump’s approval numbers are down in the toilet. Trump’s this; Trump’s that. People hate Trump. Trump’s a pig.” I’m sure you can add to the list. That has been the basic focus of news in the past...

    When his old campaign manager was indicted Monday, Mr. Trump called me on the phone, crying like a baby, and begged me to endorse him. I said, "You're already president, Mr. President. You were elected." He said, "I'd still like your endorsement." I have a recording of the phone call. It's so sad. Donald Trump is done. He couldn't get elected dogcatcher in New York, his hometown. I was very very nice about it. Very nice. But New Yorkers love dogs and he does not. There are 14 recorded instances of him kicking small dogs, and I have documentary proof...

    WASHINGTON, DC — President Donald Trump says the current legal immigration system, based almost entirely on family-based chain migration, is “a disaster for this country and it’s horrible.” During an interview with Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, Trump slammed chain migration in which newly naturalized immigrants to the United States have been readily allowed to bring their extended relatives, spouses, and children to the country, causing a boom in the foreign-born population — 44 million immigrants now reside in the U.S. — while keeping American wages stagnant and forcing working and middle-class Americans to compete with cheaper, foreign workers for jobs.

    Los Angeles Times ^ | November 6, 2017 | Reza Aslan
    I am not the first person to point this out: There’s been a cultish quality to President Trump’s most ardent supporters. He seemed to acknowledge the phenomenon when he boasted that he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and not lose voters. Throughout the campaign, and in personal appearances since then, Trump has harnessed the kind of emotional intensity from his base that is more typical of a religious revival meeting than a political rally, complete with ritualized communal chants (“Lock her up!”).

    YORK, Pa.—Are you OK? Where are you? Barbara Estep kept texting her daughter, Nylaya Way, who was not responding. Donald Trump had stunned the nation by winning the presidency the night before, and now frightening things were happening at Nylaya’s vocational high school, York County School of Technology. Racial tensions had been building in the school’s corridors, cafeteria, and parking lot throughout the historically divisive campaign. Then, hours after Trump claimed victory in the election, they boiled over as a group of white students held aloft Trump campaign signs and chanted in a hallway, “White power!’’ A brief video clip...

    Congress has been investigating possible Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin for nearly 10 months, but a top Senate Democrat says she has still not seen evidence to support the allegation. “Have you seen any evidence that this dirt, these emails, were ever given to the Trump campaign?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked California Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Sunday. “Not so far,” replied the Democrat, who is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Both panels are investigating various aspects of Russian interference in the presidential campaign. Tapper was asking Feinstein about...
  • Rural Americans Hurt by New FCC Rule

    Donald J. Trump spoke to rural voters in a way that launched him into the presidency. His soaring rhetoric and no-nonsense promises to stand up against corruption were exactly what his constituents voted for. Say it ain’t so, but now, his own Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is pushing a rule that will hurt the very voters who put him in the White House. The swamp has overtaken the FCC and President Trump’s Make America Great Again motto is in jeopardy. Will the Trump Administration stand up to the big mobile carriers or will it cave just like every Administration...

    The number of refugees admitted into the country during the first month of FY 2018 by the Trump administration plummeted to 1,242 – an 87 percent decline from the 9,945 admitted during the first month of FY 2017 by the Obama administration. The percentage of refugees admitted who are Muslim declined dramatically as well, from 45 percent in October 2016 to 23 percent in October 2017, according to the State Department interactive website. Of particular note is the precipitous drop in the number of refugees admitted from the seven countries whose citizens were temporarily banned from traveling to the United...
