    <p>Well CNN in this Youtube vid seems to be correct here, Trump said one thing on the campaign trail and now is doing another.</p> <p>Yes, it is amazing that CNN is finally covering presidential vacation costs.</p> <p>But two important distinctions, Trump is actually visiting his real home from his temporary White House residence. The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.</p>

    Are we sure that Trump‚Äôs going to end up having to fire Steve Bannon? Between this and the Syria bombing, the nationalists in the White House may just up and quit.If you think these broken promises are big news, wait until Trump comes out in favor of TPP. Mr. Trump said the reason he has changed his mind on one of his signature campaign promises is that China hasn¬ít been manipulating its currency for months and because taking the step now could jeopardize his talks with Beijing on confronting the threat of North Korea.¬ďThey¬íre not currency manipulators,¬Ē Mr. Trump said‚ĶMr....
  • Will Trump shake up his inner circle with imports from the Establishment?

    Conservative Review ^ | 04/07/2017 | Robert Eno
    After a tumultuous first 75 days in office, there are reports that President Donald Trump is looking at a major shakeup of his inner circle. Mike Allen, reporting at Axios, reported that both Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon may be out. Priebus as chief of staff has been a mistake from the beginning. Any schadenfreude conservatives may feel over this development should be tempered by thoughts of what may come next. The four names reported by Allen are all creatures of the swamp Trump professes to want to drain. With the failure to repeal Obamacare marring the start of Trumpís...

    ... On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation." But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department. It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation." Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an email written by State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland. The Republican version quotes Nuland...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday walked back comments that President Obama was "directly responsible" for the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub that left 49 people dead. "I misspoke," McCain said in a statement. "I did not mean to imply that the President was personally responsible. I was referring to President Obama's national security decisions, not the President himself."

  • Confusion follows Trump flip-flop on key immigration issue

    Mt. Vernon Register-News ^ | March 10, 2016 | Byron York
    Donald Trump won the South Carolina primary across the board, but he did particularly well with the 10 percent of voters who named immigration as the nation's top issue. In addition, some who named other issues -- the economy, national security -- were undoubtedly also concerned about immigration, and Trump's hard line likely helped him with them, too. Which is why people who follow immigration closely were stunned Thursday night when Trump, at the Fox News debate here in Detroit, announced that he has changed his position on one key element of the immigration debate -- the use of H-1B...

    When it comes to immigration reform, Senator Ted Cruz has made it abundantly clear what he opposes: giving citizenship to people who broke the law to come here. What has not been as evident is what he supports: legal status for millions of people here already, while making it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door. "I have said many times that I want to see common-sense immigration reform pass," he said. "I think most Americans want to see the problem fixed."

    [Full title] Chris Wallace Relentlessly Grills Ted Cruz on Flipped Crop Insurance Vote: 'Senator, Isn't That Exactly the Kind of Game That the Washington Cartel Plays?' Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz was grilled Sunday morning by Fox News host Chris Wallace over his flipped vote on crop insurance. "One final question, and as I say we're just running out of time, you condemn the Washington cartel, which you call the lobbyists and career politicians who rig the game. I want to ask you about one of your recent acts as a senator," Wallace said before playing video of Cruz switching...

    We all understand that politicians will be political, emphasizing one point to one audience and another point to another audience. We also understand that people's views can genuinely change, including the views of politicians. But when a political leader completely flip-flops on issues and then flip-flops again, the trustworthiness of that leader must be questioned. Does Donald Trump fit the description of a double-minded, untrustworthy leader? Judge for yourself. Trump claims that his views on abortion changed based on personal experience. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt, although at best, he is still not a strong, consistent pro-life...

    Byron York had an interesting piece on Donald Trump that is worth reading. At least anyone who might be interested in the real Donald Trump. Trump appeared in front of the ‚Äúnon-partisan‚ÄĚ No Labels group who desperately wants candidates that will ‚Äúcompromise‚ÄĚ even though it is never clear what compromises will result in. Donald Trump told this group, "Let me just tell you, the word compromise is not a bad word to me. I like the word compromise. We need compromise, there is nothing wrong with compromise, but it's always good to compromise and win. Meaning, let's compromise and win."...
