  • Nikki Haley is killing it at the United Nations

    Washington Times ^ | Friday, June 15, 2018 | By Cheryl K. Chumley
    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is just about killing it at the global body. In recent remarks to the General Assembly, Haley first condemned the anti-Israel faction of the bunch for using the global body for politics, not peace promotion. And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border ó a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties. Did you get that? It actually received a majority...
  • (IS DACA) Donald Trumpís ďRead My LipsĒ Moment? (YES)

    01/10/2018 11:53:22 AM PST · by Cubs Fan · 154 replies
    The Democrats well remember their success in baiting George H. Bush into alienating his base by persuading him to renege on his campaign pledge: ďRead my lips Ö no new taxes!Ē Well the new taxes came, the already suspicious base could no longer rationalize to themselves that Bush would continue the Reagan legacy, and Bush was a single-term President. His successor being none other than Bill Clinton. If granting amnesty to illegal aliens ó who are trespassers in this land ó does not equate to a ďread my lipsĒ level betrayal, itís hard to imagine what would be. The White...

    No matter how many ways I say this, Iím going to get the usual ďRINO!Ē reaction. Iíll give you the caveat as plainly as I can: this is not an article for or against the impeachment of Barack Obama. Now, no matter how forcefully I say it, there is still a faction on the right who will take my failure to immediately call for Obamaís impeachment as their chance to damn me as a RINO, a traitor, a fifth-columnist, a secret Obama supporter, a squish, and a sellout to the Evil Establishment. So before you lose your grip, reread the...
  • Republican Backed Jerry Brownís Gas Tax for $400 Million Pork Project

    The Los Angeles Times reported early Sunday morning that Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic leaders in the state legislature made $1 billion in side deals to ensure the passage of a 12-cent hike in the state gasoline tax last week. ... One of the more prominent deals was the one that secured the vote of State Sen. Anthony Canella (R-Ceres), who was the only Republican in either chamber to support the measure, which includes raised fees at the Department of Motor Vehicles. That side deal turns out to have been the costliest of all, amounting to $400 million in pork...
  • Dana Loesch: Paul Ryan Obamacare Plan A "Middle Finger" To American People, Trump

    DANA LOESCH: I think it's an insult. It's an insult to the American people and it's an insult to the Trump administration for Republicans, Congressional Republicans to deliver this bill to his desk. They are the ones who are endangering this new administration and I can't bold, italicized, underline that anymore. In 2015, Jim Jordan had a fantastic bill that went way further than anything that this bill is doing and it actually lowered prices instead of increasing prices, which is what this 'Obamacare 2.0' bill does and I don't know why, for the life of me, they will not...

    The nationís vice president and a retired Marine Corps general were among the dignitaries, family members and other mourners who choked up Saturday during a memorial tribute to the late space hero John Glenn. Roughly 2,500 people gathered at Mershon Auditorium on the Ohio State University campus for ďa celebration of lifeĒ for the former fighter pilot, history-making astronaut and longtime Democratic U.S. senator from small-town Ohio. He was remembered not only for bravery, but for his thoughtful consideration for others, his integrity and his patriotic optimism. Ö

    The Vatican and the Chinese government are close to an agreement that would allow for the appointment of new Catholic bishops recognized by both parties, the Wall Street Journal reports. According to the Wall Street Journal account, negotiations have yielded a compromise agreement, which has been submitted to Pope Francis for his approval. The accord would also require approval from top officials in Beijing. The Journal story essentially supports an earlier report from the Reuters news agency, which said that negotiators were nearing an agreement. Both stories said that under the proposed agreement, the Vatican would recognize eight bishops who...

    Jason Riley has now joined the long and distinguished list of people invited ó and then disinvited ó to give a talk on a college campus, in this case Virginia Tech. Mr. Riley is a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal and, perhaps most relevantly, author of a very insightful book titled "Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed." In short, Jason Riley's views on race are different from the views that prevail on most college campuses. At one time, 50 years ago or earlier, exposing students...

    Congratulations to our presumptive nominee, Donald Trump! Great job in New York and throughout this campaign. Cruz and Kasich are now mathematically eliminated and just like all the others who were mathematically eliminated should concede and drop out so we can all unite behind our nominee and prepare to defeat the godless America-hating traitor Hillary Clinton in November. As conservatives and patriots, it's time to put bruised egos behind us, heal our differences and act united in the best interests of our nation. The media and the GOPe will try to keep us divided, of course, but we must not...

    The big question for Cruz is whether this baton pass does more damage than good among anti-establishment voters, even if it does boost movement conservatives. Newsmaxís Nick Sanchez believes that Jebís conservative track record in Florida will buffer the downside, and giving Cruz and the Tea Party access to the ďestablishmentĒ donor base will pay dividends as well: 3. The Bush family has a national network of supporters ó Money alone cannot win an election, and ó as Cruz demonstrated right off the bat in the Iowa caucus ó tapping into the network of bottom-up grassroots organizing can often ensure...

    What's the best way for a country like China to exert its influence over the U.S. economy? Acquire American-owned companies like Chinese-owned Haier just did when they purchased General Electricís (GE) appliance business for $5.4 billion. So much for American independence and authentic Independence Day celebrations on July 4th. America can no longer claim to be an independent nation when our manufacturing base is under foreign ownership or foreign control. After all, ownership equals control, and control equals sovereignty. We lose our sovereignty as a nation when foreign companies buy our land, factories, and companies.

    To watch the recent happenings on Capitol Hill, you would think this was just another typical presidential election yearóa few bumps here and there, but no sign of a major shake-up, no indication voters were in revolt, nothing to suggest business as usual in Washington was perhaps falling out of fashion among the American public. What else explains the lackluster, uninspiring, and I would suggest, ďsell-out your baseĒ agenda of GOP congressional leadership? For example, the Senate GOP sold out its base on the issue of Common Core this week...... Thatís right, despite the fact Congress passed a Budget Control...
