  • Avoiding the Shutdown - for Fun and Laughs

    No matter where you look, you can't escape it. "Government Shutdown - Day 27..." "Government Shutdown - Day 28..." The partial government shutdown - and who's to blame for it, who's being hurt most by it and who's going to blink first - is the top topic on television, cable, talk radio, the internet and in the papers. It's so pervasive in all the news media it feels like you're watching a daily "Groundhog Day" movie about partisan politics and biased journalism. Everyone who is interviewed about the shutdown on Fox, CNN, NBC and elsewhere says the same predictable things...

    Republicans should do as many as their constituents do and stop believing every word they read in the New York Times. We have now entered—without much screaming and kicking along the way— in The Era of the Holier-Than-Thou Accusers. That the getting to be prolific accusers are also the abusers of innocent targeted victims seems to be going straight over the heads of the chattering classes.

    President Trump hosted a number of Republican and Democratic House lawmakers at the White House Wednesday to negotiate over border security and end the ongoing government shut down. “The President and his team had a constructive meeting with bipartisan members of the problem solvers caucus. They listened to one another and now both have a good understanding of what the other wants. We look forward to more conversations like this,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said about the meeting.  These House Democrats in the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus met today with @realDonaldTrump in the Situation Room to discuss the shutdown: Josh...

    It’s not a joke to say Republicans have an uncanny knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Of all the things the GOP excels at, this tops the charts. So as the longest partial shutdown of the government in history rolls on, it’s important to take a moment to check the status of things and game out how things could go. And, believe it or not, Republicans could actually end up with money for a border wall (or barrier, whatever) if only they ignore all their natural instincts and stand strong.The sad profiles of federal employees claiming to...

    Yes, where are our (your) Republican members of Congress? President Trump spoke to the American people last night, laid out the case for securing our border, building the wall. Pelosi and Schumer stepped up and thoroughly embarrassed themselves. Republicans in Congress, crickets. Cockroaches, maybe? They have scurried off to their safe spaces and silently hide.

    Wouldn’t be the worst way this drama could end for POTUS, frankly. Having the party break ranks to thwart him would be momentarily embarrassing but it would bail him out of a potentially thornier situation. If the feds miss a pay period and federal workers start walking off the job en masse, that’d be messy and might force a full presidential surrender. If congressional Republicans start flipping first, that’s much more easily explained. The treacherous RINOs would have proved once again that they’re unwilling to stand and fight. Trump did his part. He was stabbed in the back. Result:...

    I am concerned about Republicans deserting President Trump to side with the Democrats. At the present time, it is about the government shutdown. President Trump says until he gets the money for the border wall, the government will continue with the shutdown. We must remember that was one of his campaign promises, and he has tried to keep those to the American people. He just finished a speech in which he stated most of the American people want the wall, and I know he is right. I do! We have a responsibility to keep our Country sovereign, but the Dems...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters Sunday that "I feel pretty good about where we're headed" in Syria after suggesting that President Trump is "reconsidering" the planned pullout which had drawn bipartisan criticism and forced the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis. Graham emerged from the White House after a two-hour lunch with Trump and said the president "told me some things I didn't know that make me feel a lot better about where we're headed in Syria." "He promised to destroy ISIS. He's going to keep that promise," Graham said of Trump. "We're not there yet. But as I...

    WASHINGTON — In one of their final acts in the House majority, Republicans released a letter on Friday urging their Senate counterparts to pick up their politically charged inquiry into the handling of the F.B.I.’s investigations of President Trump’s campaign and Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, and called again for the appointment of a special counsel to study the matter. Detailing some of their findings, the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees said it appeared to them that the F.B.I. had treated the Trump and Clinton cases differently, cutting Mrs. Clinton and her associates crucial...

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | December 22, 2018 | Paul Sperry
    John Huber has developed almost mythical status among pro-Trump tweeters since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed him to investigate why the FBI spied on Trump’s aides and whether they protected Hillary Clinton and her foundation over alleged misdeeds. They hoped the Salt Lake City-based prosecutor would aggressively expose the malfeasance that has already led to firings and resignations among the bureau’s top brass. Instead, more than a year since his appointment, Huber’s lack of traction on either front is leading many once hopeful supporters to dismiss his investigation as a “sham." RealClearInvestigations has learned from potential witnesses, their lawyers...

    Rising socialist star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed her outrage with Republican spending priorities that added $5.7 billion in border security funding and $3 billion in emergency disaster relief funds to the federal budget. "They've shown their true colors," she exclaimed. "They'd rather throw up barriers to the free migration that the United Nations has declared a human right than fund higher priorities like free college tuition, green jobs, prescription refills, and self-care for hard-working members of congress." She pointed to the inclusion of the emergency disaster relief money in the bill as "a not too subtle admission that blocking...

This hurts this country. This is— this tax cut in a sense an act of terror because it’s going to make the...

    “CONSERVATIVE” OPPOSITION TO ENDING OBAMACARE MAKES ME SICK A Howard Kurtz article on Fox News this morning, Why Some Conservatives Don’t Like the Ruling Against Obamacare,” is mis-titled. There should have been quote marks around the word “conservative.” No self-respecting conservative would ever oppose a ruling striking down Obamacare, as has just happened when a federal judge in Texas ruled the law unconstitutional. Think about it—how is it possible for a law MANDATING that you buy a product be Constitutional? Medicine is a product. The practice of medicine is a commercial service. That’s free enterprise. If you force a doctor...

They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at the local level or Fox at the national level,” Perez...

    Conservatives must also take the political game as seriously as the leftists do. In this country, conservatives still outnumber liberals, but you would never know it by the voting tallies As Special Counsel Robert Mueller racks up the guilty pleas for minor infractions by supporters of President Trump unrelated to Russian Collusion and ignores the crimes committed by members of the FBI, DOJ, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it should come as no surprise that Conservatives are playing in the wrong game. Even after Republicans won the White House, Senate and House of Representatives they acted as if...

    California looks like a lost cause for Republicans, given how Democrats clinched the midterm with a series of new laws.  Maybe no big deal, given that California has been a solid blue state for something like 20 years.  But are Americans aware of the potential for California vote-rigging to come to their states, making them so blue that no conservative will ever be able to win an election? A California political operative, Edward Ring, writing in American Greatness, lays out the coming spectacle: Three laws in particular combined to stack the deck against Republicans.  First came the Motor Voter law.  This meant that as soon...
  • Regaining Trust on Money Issues

    12/04/2018 10:27:16 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | December 4, 2018 | Stephen Moore
    Republicans need to regain the offensive on the fiscal issues. The GOP has somehow allowed big-spending Democrats to get to the right of them on the issue of financial responsibility and balanced budgets. Polls show that Democrats are now more trusted on balancing the budget than Republicans. That's like losing an arm wrestling contest to Nancy Pelosi. The big first step for Republicans to regain American trust on fiscal responsibility is for President Donald Trump to deliver a nationally televised prime-time speech from the Oval Office to announce an all-hands-on-deck war on Washington waste. Declare a debt-spending emergency. If Americans...
