  • Trump’s Passion Propels GOP

    12/29/2021 6:20:04 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | December 29, 2021 | John and Andy Schlafly
    As we close the books on 2021, the award for worst prediction of the year was that Donald Trump would somehow fade from political influence. Anti-Trumper Karl Rove gushed last February 11 that Trump was “effectively tarnished for all time and incapable of running in 2024.” Rep. Liz Cheney may have taken Rove’s advice or agreed with it, foolishly betting her political future on a banishment of Trump from the political stage. Instead, it is Cheney who is being shown the door and will likely be humiliated in her own upcoming primary. Democrat John Kerry, whose presidential ambitions crashed in...
  • Trump Has Earned a Friend

    He is alive! Norman Podhoretz is alive, and he agreed to an interview with The Wall Street Journal's very perceptive Barton Swaim this weekend. He says that many of his peers are now deceased but not him, and he certainly did not sound deceased. Bill Buckley and Irving Kristol have given up the ghost, and American political commentary is the poorer for their passing, but Norman is still with us, and at 91 -- almost 92 -- he is full of fire. He went on for almost a full page of the Journal, and I agreed with every word. In...
  • French Youth Are Following In The Footsteps of Trump's MAGA Movement

    "What the heck is going on over there?" This has been the sentiment expressed by friends and associates outside of France as they come across news of the 63-year-old longtime French right-wing editorialist who's now running second in many polls to incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron ahead of next April's presidential election. Eric Zemmour was born in one of the rougher Parisian suburbs to working-class immigrant parents of North African origin who arrived during the Algerian War. He has spilled so much ink -- in books and columns -- on subjects like feminism, immigration, and the impact of general leftist...
  • The Pandemic is Over. Long Live the Pandemic.

    The COVID pandemic is over. Thanks to the work of President Donald Trump, a vaccine is widely available to anyone who wants it. And, coming from that research, a new pill from Pfizer that cuts the risk of death and hospitalization by 90 percent in individuals who contract COVID, is in front of the Food and Drug Administration for approval. Those who want to protect themselves from COVID can do so easily, and those who chose not to take advantage of the vaccine or the pill (when it is approved) are in any event are unlikely to die from the...
  • The GOP Fight That Stopped Trump's Immigration Plan

    In the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump's highest-profile promise was to build the wall -- that is, to construct a barrier along about 1,000 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. Once elected, Trump's best chance to win money from Congress for a wall came in 2018, when Republican Speaker Paul Ryan controlled the House and Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell controlled the Senate. It didn't happen. Now, one of Trump's strongest supporters on Capitol Hill, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, is out with a new memoir, "Do What You Said You Would Do," on Nov. 23 that describes those months when GOP...
  • The Only Thing Biden Has Left Is Trump

    10/29/2021 5:07:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 34 replies ^ | October 29, 2021 | David Harsanyi
    This week, the president took a trip to Virginia to try to help salvage the gubernatorial prospects of fellow Washington lifer Terry McAuliffe. resident Joe Biden used the appearance to liken the GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin to Jan. 6 rioters, to lie about Republicans supporting "book bans" and to attempt to goad former President Donald Trump into coming to Virginia. (Mission accomplished? Perhaps not.) Biden wants to talk about one person these days, and that person isn't Biden. Then again, what does he possibly have to brag about? Shutting down COVID? More Americans have died from the disease during...
  • Two Raids Offer a Window on Biden’s National Security Weakness

    10/27/2021 9:17:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | October 27, 2021 | John Ullyot
    Two years ago this week, President Donald Trump was in the White House Situation Room with his national security leadership team, monitoring developments in what became one of his many bold and successful moves in keeping the country safe, the nighttime raid by U.S. special operations forces on the world’s most wanted terrorist, Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Eight and a half years earlier, then-Vice President Joe Biden found himself in the White House Situation Room with President Barack 0bama and his national security leadership team, in their case monitoring developments in the nighttime raid on the world’s most...
  • Republicans Gain Big in Blue-Collar Elections But Narrowly in Affluent State Legislative Elections

    10/22/2021 4:42:51 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | October 22, 2021 | Michael Barone
    State legislative special elections provide an interesting index of partisan sentiment these days. That wasn't so in the late 20th century, when clever local candidates and notables often got voters to cross party lines. But in this century of increasing partisan polarization and straight-ticket voting, local special elections are a proxy for opinion on national issues. In that light, consider the results of the two special legislative elections that have resulted in a change of parties so far this year. The first was in Connecticut's 36th state Senate district on Aug. 17. This is the richest state Senate district in...
  • Biden Touts Vaccination Rate As Evidence He’s Been Able To ‘Unite The Country’

    05/29/2021 3:34:25 PM PDT · by Tipllub · 65 replies
    President Joe Biden on Friday argued the country’s rising vaccination rate was the first sign he’s delivering on his promise to unify the nation, even as he said Congress—which was voting down a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 riots— seems more divided than ever. Speaking in Virginia, Biden said if the U.S. is able to reach his July 4 goal of vaccinating 70% of adults, it will be the “first real evidence” the country is coming together.

    Between the pandemic, Hurricane Maria, and the recent earthquakes, the last four years have been an immense struggle for Puerto Rico. But as the island rebuilds, it must be careful to do so in a manner that corrects past mistakes and lays a stronger foundation for the future. This is especially true for Puerto Rico’s electrical infrastructure. Systemic problems with Puerto Rico’s electricity were obvious even before the recent natural disasters. Just two months before Hurricane Maria made landfall in 2017, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) declared bankruptcy on $9 billion in bond debt. In the hurricane’s aftermath,...
  • Team Biden Intends to Never Let Its Manufactured Crises Go to Waste

    04/30/2021 3:53:57 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | April 30, 2021 | David Limbaugh
    My major takeaway from President Biden's joint address to Congress is that he and his handlers are continuing to employ the Democrats' primary strategy from the Obama years: Never let a crisis go to waste.To scare the American people into accepting his reckless spending proposals, Biden is leveraging the pandemic, which means he is framing it as still hot, raging and dangerous, while immodestly taking undeserved credit for the progress that we've made.To begin, he staged an image of crisis for television viewers by having a group of entirely vaccinated people unnecessarily wear masks and socially distance, though Massachusetts Institute...

    Editor's Note: This piece was co-authored by Congresswoman Lisa McClain.David Frum’s article entitled “The Worst Outcome” for The Atlantic (March 11, 2020 article) stated “if somebody other than Donald Trump were in the White House, the Coronavirus Crisis would not be unfolding this way … Trump’s actions have ensured the worst possible outcomes. The worst possible outcome for public health, the worst possible outcome for the American economy, the worst possible outcome for American global leadership.” The media in general, and the Democratic Party highly supported Frum’s view giving it inertia throughout 2020 while creating a view of gross incompetence...

    Is it too much to ask to know the name of the federal government employee who, on our behalf, shot an unarmed veteran who was, at worst, trespassing in a public building? Apparently, it is, since no one in our glorious, licensed, and neutered regime media seems to want to tell us. They know. They all know. They just don’t want you to know.We know the identity of the incompetent cop who shot the guy with a warrant (for carrying a concealed weapon without permit, which is not even a crime in nearly two dozen free states – racist Democrat...

    Whether you agree with Trump’s immigration policies or not, Joe Biden and his team own this current border crisis — no one else.resident Joe Biden has essentially told the American people the buck does not stop at the Oval Office — at least not on the border crisis. Having dismantled many of the immigration policies the Trump administration used to regain control of our southern border, Biden administration officials now insist the current mess is somehow all Trump’s fault. Unfortunately, the facts are not on their side. In truth, the Trump administration reformed a broken immigration system — one that...

    Imagine if you had a job. A good job, one that required skill and critical thinking and had a broad impact in the community where you lived. A job you didn't just show up to do. It was a job you were good at, and because of it, you were able to provide a roof over your family's head, put your children through college or help pay for their wedding, and once a year, it gave you the ability to carve out a week or two to take the family on vacation. Now imagine that job becomes the center of...
  • A Suggestion for Donald Trump

    Washington -- Saturday was a good day for the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. The First Amendment has been validated once again, this time by the United States Senate. Simply by speaking his mind, Citizen Donald Trump committed no crime on Jan. 6. That was when he addressed a large crowd telling them they should march "peacefully" and "patriotically." He told them they should "fight like hell." Those are words frequently employed by politicians, and Trump's defense team gave us plenty of blood-curdling examples of Democrats uttering precisely those words in an angry montage Friday....
  • Trump's Senate Trial Rests on the Claim that He Lied About Vote Fraud, He Didn't

    Former-president Donald Trump’s Senate trial for his January 6 speech “inciting” a riot at the US Capitol rests on the claim that he lied about vote fraud in the November election. Put aside that Trump asked “everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically, make your voices heard." That he only wanted them to show their support for legislators who were supporting him. That the assault on the Capitol's security lines started before Trump began speaking.While Trump’s questioning the integrity of the November election “incited” violence, President Biden can liken Senators Ted Cruz...
  • America’s Biden 'Buyer Remorse'

    With little more than a week and a half of the Biden Administration under our belts, America has already contracted a raging case of "buyer’s remorse" when it comes to our 46th president.It began when Joe Biden—who mercilessly taunted President Donald J. Trump for “not having a plan” to stop the China Virus as he campaigned against Trump from his basement—addressed that issue two days after being inaugurated. “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic over the next several months,” he told a stunned nation. His beleaguered and comically underprepared press secretary, Jen We’ve-Only-Been-Here-Fill-In-The-Blank-Days Psaki,...

    If the first week of leftist insanity gushing from President Joe Biden's executive pen doesn't vindicate Donald Trump's supporters in full measure, I don't know what could. Scratch that. There is much more to come. Trump supporters have long touted the former president's impressive policy achievements as proof they were wise in supporting him and correct that an outsider could get results. We've learned in the past few months who is running this country: the media, the social media oligarchy, cancel culture and leftist dark money being poured into the system. These forces have weaponized identity politics and empowered the...
  • The Controversy Over Trump's Pardons and Commutations Highlights Longstanding Problems With Clemency

    01/27/2021 5:34:24 AM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | January 27, 2021 | Jacob Sullum
    When Donald Trump pardoned Steve Bannon last week, the outgoing president blocked the former White House strategist's prosecution for bilking donors to an organization that claimed to be raising money for a wall along the border with Mexico. When Trump granted a commutation to Craig Cesal, by contrast, he freed a man who had already served 17 years of what was originally a life sentence for repairing trucks that were used to transport marijuana. As those examples reflect, Trump's acts of clemency mixed favors to cronies with relief for genuinely deserving federal prisoners hit with grossly disproportionate penalties. The controversy...
