  • Pelosi suggests Trump early days in office like neophyte performing 'brain surgery'

    David Bossie responds to New York Times article. Video at link House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, in a recently published profile of President Trump, gave a stinging criticism of the president’s early months in office, suggesting his “lack of knowledge" for the job was tantamount to somebody without a medical degree “being asked to perform brain surgery.” “The bigger problem, the thing people need to understand, is that he was utterly unprepared for this,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a New York Times story published this weekend about Trump’s daily routine. “It would be like you or me going into a...
  • Concentration Camps Expert Says Trump Just Endorsed The Idea Of Them In U.S. (He went there)

    President Donald Trump’s pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio amounts to an endorsement of the idea of concentration camps, says a journalist who has reported on the global history of the deadly facilities. Arpaio referred to his own county jail as a “concentration camp.” For over two decades, he operated “Tent City,” where detainees were kept in brutal conditions, including temperatures soaring well above 100 degrees Farenheit. They were also forced to work on chain gangs and to wear pink undergarments as a form of humiliation. Arpaio was convicted in July of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order...
  • Steve Bannon Was Fired in February

    The American Spectator ^ | 08/18/17 | Marcus Calpurnius Flamma
    For all their faults, Democrats have always been far more astute at the long game. Sadly, Steve Bannon was effectively fired in February. Bannon’s long road to exile began on December 29 last year, when Michael Flynn had an innocuous conversation with the Russian ambassador eavesdropped on and unmasked by Obama officials. After leaks to the Washington Post (probably from the recently fired Sally Yates or her cohort), Flynn resigned as National Security Advisor. Trump needed to fill the position quickly, with someone Democrats calling for Flynn’s scalp wouldn’t object to. He reached into the swamp, and pulled out Army...

    Lotter said the story line that the White House is in turmoil or that the Trump and Pence teams are divided is “the gold standard for fake news.” He refuted outsiders’ claims that there is any sort of division between staff members of the President and Vice President. advertisement None of the six Republicans cited in a Saturday McClatchy DC article entitled “GOP’s latest worry: White House turmoil dividing Trump, Pence staffs,” were identified as having ever worked for the Trump Administration. The report states that four of six sources used had worked merely for the Trump-Pence campaign or transition....

    The Bureau of Economic Analysis’s advance estimate of real gross domestic product in the first quarter of 2017, which was released in April, had the U.S. economy growing at an annual rate of just 0.7 percent. The BEA’s second estimate, which is “based on more complete source data” and which was released today, increases the estimate for the annual rate of first quarter growth in real GDP to only 1.2 percent. In the last quarter of 2016, according to the BEA, real GDP grew at an annual rate of 2.1 percent, while for all of 2016 it grew at only...
  • You're not going to believe how much illegal immigration has dropped since January 2017

    According to figures released yesterday, the number of illegal aliens crossing the U.S. southwestern border has dropped by an astonishing 76% since President Trump took office.  More specifically, the number of minor children crossing the border with or without a parent has been cut even further. Washington Times: Illegal immigration across the southwestern border is down a stunning 76 percent since President Trump was elected, with the flow of children and families dropping even faster as analysts say the administration's commitment to enforcing the law has changed the reality along the border. Overall apprehensions by the Border Patrol dropped to just...

    The Washington Post via The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | May 1, 2017 | Marc A. Thiessen, The Washington Post
    Let's face it: The past 100 days have been a disaster ... for Democrats. While much ink has been spilled in the past week assessing President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, the Democrats' abysmal performance has largely escaped scrutiny. So let's review their record. The Democrats spent much of Trump's first months in office pushing their unfounded narrative of Trump's alleged collusion with Vladimir Putin. But that narrative went up in smoke when Trump launched missile strikes against Putin's Syrian ally, Bashar Assad. Trump not only hit the air base from which Assad allegedly had launched his chemical...

    On May 2, the Congressional Black Caucus hosted their Twitter Town Hall and Tweetstorm, with a focus on the first 100 days of the Donald Trump administration. The Tweetstorm invited questions, answers, opinions, suggestions and observations about the White House and other issues of note, which had to be accompanied by the hashtag: #Stay Woke Some of the topics were education, police, Pell grants, scholarships, money, immigration, jobs, and the government. U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted the question: “Trump keeps talking about job creation-but I haven’t seen much effort on his part. What’s he been up to instead?”...
  • 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.”...

    Earnings season has offered plenty of reasons for investors to be optimistic. Even more good news is on the way. With over 80% of S&P 500 companies having posted quarterly results, the profit engines at the biggest U.S. public companies are humming along. In an environment of elevated valuations, strong earnings growth helps justify record highs for stocks and suggests the bull market still has legs. First-quarter earnings are on pace to increase 13.5% from the same period a year earlier, according to FactSet. That would be the third consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth and the quickest pace since the...

    As a gridlocked Congress threatens to stall the legislative promises that catapulted him to office, President Trump has raised hackles on the Hill by suggesting longstanding Senate rules simply be scrapped to cripple Democratic opposition. Trump has twice in the past week railed against “archaic” Senate procedures – first in an interview with Fox News and then again on Twitter – seeming to suggest the legislative filibuster be ended to take advantage of Republicans’ control of Congress. “And maybe at some point we're going to have to take those rules on, because, for the good of the nation, things are...

    Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney said Tuesday that a wall is being built right now on the Mexican border. MICK MULVANEY: The president delivered on his promises and got his priorities funded, and that's what the Democrats don't want you to know. They want you to think they won, but they don't want you to know the American people won here because the president simply out-negotiated them. And we're going to build this. There are several hundreds of millions of dollars for us to replace cyclone fencing with 20-foot high steel wall. There's several hundreds...

    Situational ethics define the liberal media. There is no pursuit of truth. There is only a double standard. When former President Barack Obama bowed to dictators in Cuba and Iran, it was "historic" diplomacy. When President Donald Trump talks up meeting with autocrats, that's another dangerous and disgusting sign of his lack of respect for human rights. The Washington Post front page on May 2 carried the headline "Praise for strongmen alarms rights advocates: Trump's vocal affection for totalitarians marks major U.S. policy shift." Pictures included Russian President Vladimir Putin, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and the crackpot North Korean leader...

    Washington Times ^ | May 2, 2017 | By S.A. Miller and Stephen Dinan
    The White House insisted Tuesday that the $1 trillion spending bill includes money for 40 miles of border fencing, as President Trump sought to shore up Republican voters by saying the deal also lays the groundwork for rebuilding the military. The president said there is “enough money to make a down payment on the border wall,” and said a $15 billion boost in defense spending — without having a dollar-for-dollar match in domestic spending — has set a new standard that will benefit Republicans and the Pentagon. “This is what winning looks like,” Mr. Trump said. Republicans bristled after Democrats...

    Much, for America, depends on his success. It is often hard to discern, but, despite an unprecedented amount of friction and the continued implacable hostility of the discredited post-Reagan political establishment, Donald Trump is continuing to gain ground in his holy crusade against them. He mousetrapped himself into turning 100 days into an important milestone, unlike any other president except Franklin D. Roosevelt (who had a unanimous mandate to deal radically with the Great Depression). Very predictably, this has turned into an empty-net goal for the large swath of the media whom he has correctly described as, in terms of...

    President's campaign reacts to 'censorship' by network! It’s becoming clear that the 2020 presidential election campaign, already under way as evidenced by television ads, could very well be a war between the sitting president, Donald Trump, and the media, which he describes as “fake news” for its powerful ties to Democratic Party politics. CNN, for example, refused to air an ad created by the Donald J. Trump for President organization because it has a frame of images of network anchors with the label “fake news” across their faces. .. The ad boasts of the president’s accomplishments regarding business, energy independence,...

    President Trump is ready to give up on Congress — or maybe he already has. And we can totally see why he wants to just shut it down and start all over again. Democrats are united against him, Republicans seem hopelessly divided, and Trump's top priorities are no closer to being law than when he was running for president. To wit: There's no question Democrats won this week's budget showdown, and it was mostly Trump's priorities that got left on the cutting floor when congressional leaders were making a deal. House Speaker Paul Ryan said he shared President Trump’s “frustration,”...
