  • How Trump voters feel about his first 100 days

    The New York Post ^ | April 22, 2017 | Salena Zito
    Last fall, just weeks before Election Day, I traveled the old Lincoln Highway, from the Appalachian Mountains to the Rockies, to learn the attitudes of voters who lived miles from the off-ramps of the main interstates and coastal America. Known as US 30, the mostly two-lane highway connects 13 states and 128 counties between Times Square and San Francisco. It was on that trip, especially in the Rust Belt states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Iowa, that a realization unfolded: Many had already decided they were not voting for Hillary Clinton. These voters appeared to defy polls and conventional wisdom....
  • Trump Takes Aim at Wall Street’s Favorite Financial Regulation

    President Donald Trump ordered the Treasury Department on Friday to examine two controversial powers given to financial regulators in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, including a bailout authority widely favored by the biggest banks. One of the memos Trump signed Friday takes aim at the “Orderly liquidation authority” or OLA, which authorizes the federal government to take over and wind down a failing financial firm. It instructs Treasury to examine whether OLA encourages excessive risk-taking or exposes taxpayers to liability. It also orders Treasury not to use OLAA while the review is underway. OLA has been a target...
  • Pollsters and the media still have a glaring anti-Trump bias

    The Toronto Sun ^ | April 22, 2017 | Anthony Furey, Postmedia Network
    You’d think the leading voices in the media and among pollsters would have learned their lesson after being so off the mark in their coverage of Donald Trump. They’re losing their grasp on both reality and their readers. But instead of correcting course, many of them are doubling down in the sanity. Just last week we saw this in play in the pages of – where else? – The New York Times. As if not content to let their November election night prediction that Hillary Clinton had a 92% chance of winning the presidency, the English-speaking world’s liberal paper of...

    Democratic Rep. Mark DeSaulnier told an 11-year-old girl at a middle school in California Wednesday that President Donald Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. While speaking at a town hall at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, Calif., DeSaulnier moved to the Q&A portion of the event after his talk and answered the final question from Eden, an 11-year-old girl, with a bang, East Bay Times reported Saturday. “From the mouths of babes,” DeSaulnier said. “I think you should be concerned. This is dangerous stuff. I’ve said a few times, the most dangerous person in America isn’t a terrorist, it’s...

    President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited Walter Reed Medical Center on Saturday, where the President awarded the Purple Heart to a wounded soldier. Trump presented the medal to Sgt. First Class Alvaro Barrientos and thanked him on behalf of himself and the first lady. Barrientos’ wife, Tammy, was present for the short ceremony. “When I heard about this, I wanted to do this myself,” Trump said as he placed the Purple Heart on the soldier’s lapel. “Congratulations. Tremendous.” The Purple Heart is awarded to American service members who are wounded or killed in combat. Barrientos was recently...

    I was always a big Bernie Sanders fan. In the darkest days of the Bush administration, he was a big deal. I still remember in 2006 when he won his U.S. Senate seat and thinking it was just the beginning; democratic-socialism was finally blowing up the way it should and that he was a legend in the making. Last year I learned some things that made me question why I always loved Bernie Sanders. He was playing dumb about knowing or helping up-and-coming populist Democrats such as himself, and was instead letting the DSCC and the Obama administration pick safe,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - at 12:15pm today President Trump disclosed that he has reached an agreement with Enrique Pena Nieto, President of Mexico, which provides for the sale of substantially all of the State of California to the country of Mexico. President Trump noted that this deal, which he claims "is his largest real estate deal ever" is a win-win for everyone involved. One of the benefits he says he will highlight during a prime time address from the oval office later this evening, will include using the proceeds received by the US from Mexico to 1) pay for the Wall...

    WASHINGTON-Here inside the Beltway bubble, we don't really know what's happening in real America. (To that end, the satellite radio monopoly has given a radio show to Salena Zito, chronicler of the salt of the earth for those people for whom Hillbilly Elegy is too heavy a lift.) Unlike many of the cynics and elitists hereabouts, I maintain an optimistic view of my fellow Americans out in the boonies. I think they're all going to get together next October and announce that it's all been an elaborate prank. I hope that's the case because, otherwise…yikes. From The Buffalo News: "I'd...

It's nothing big but she just feels bad because she doesn't know that many locals. If you have a Facebook account please go to the link and like her photo. She probably still won't win but at least she'll know Freepers support their own. Please Like This Picture

    A former car salesman who admittedly operated a “communications hub” for Islamic terrorists from his California apartment was formally stripped of U.S. citizenship this week by a federal court judge. Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell authorized Wednesday a court order officially denaturalizing Khaled Abu Dahab, an Egyptian-born al Qaeda recruiter who was given U.S. citizenship in 1997, the Justice Department said. Dahab, 57, was arrested in Cairo a year later and ultimately admitted being a member of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, or EIJ — an al Qaeda affiliate designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. and others, the...

    This past election, then-candidate Donald Trump came to Dundalk, a community that resembles so many towns and neighborhoods in Rust Belt states that have seen their manufacturing jobs base erode. He received a hero's welcome because residents heard him acknowledging what they lived and what they knew: When manufacturing jobs left many other problems arose. His words resonated — and now his actions are giving manufacturers the real change in Washington we've been looking for. Manufacturers in the U.S. are feeling more optimistic about the economy and business environment than we have in 20 years, according to a new National...

    While the chattering class was lamenting the delay on ObamaCare repeal and replace and promised tax reform, they ignored perhaps the most importance consequence of President Trump’s election, a major accomplishment in his first 100 days, the transformation of the Supreme Court into a conservative and constitutional bastion of freedom. The appointment and confirmation of Judge Neil  Gorsuch has already borne fruit as he cast the deciding vote allowing the execution of multiple Arkansas death row inmates to proceed. As Bloomberg Politics reported: Justice Neil Gorsuch took his first major action on the U.S. Supreme Court by casting the deciding...

    Earlier this month I was asking what, if anything, was going to happen with the Obama era refugee deal which had been struck with Australia. They’ve got thousands of migrants, primarily from Iraq, Syria and other troubled regions, basically stuck in some island camps where they are coming into conflict with the local residents. The United States had said that we would be taking more than a thousand of them off their hands, but the President somewhat famously referred to it as “a dumb deal” he would have to study. I suppose the study period is over because we got...

    President Donald Trump plans to hold a "BIG rally" in Pennsylvania next weekend — although the exact time, place and reason for the event are not known. Trump, tweeted from his personal account Saturday afternoon that the rally would be held Saturday, April 29, without immediately providing further details. (TWEET-AT-LINK) As Politico notes, the rally will mark Trump's 100th day in office. The event also falls on the same night as the White House Correspondent's Dinner, which Trump has decided to skip, breaking years of precedent. The president spent much time campaigning in Pennsylvania, and taking the state proved a...

    CBS News celebrated an eleven-year-old who is suing President Trump for his climate change skepticism. The kid, Avery McRae, said, "Trump is not doing anything to help stop climate change. He's a climate change denier, and we're going to prove that to — to the world." CBS felt like this was the cutest thing ever -- to possibly cost taxpayers oodles of money and perpetuate fake news. The journalist said, "Although their lawsuit may seem leak a long shot, who better to fight for the future than those who will be here to see it?"

    The U.S. Department of Justice signaled its intent Friday to follow through on a widespread immigration crackdown promised by President Donald Trump, warning “sanctuary” jurisdictions across the nation, including California, that the federal government would withhold law enforcement funds if they don’t cooperate with immigration authorities. In California, Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued a strong rebuke to the demand letter from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    Try as they might, this time the left wing media failed to bury the story of a black criminal murdering white people because they are white. The shooting in Fresno California by terrorist Kori Ali Muhammad was one of the worst in the state's history and so violent and bloody that there was no way to bury it. Often the media will bury a story about a minority attacking white people such as the case with the Knoxville Massacre. Often covering up the criminal's race and beliefs. This time they just couldn't do it and they failed bury the fact ...

    According to many Democrats, President Donald Trump is at fault for the problems concerning the Middle East, North Korea, China, Russia, the economy, illegal immigration, the tax code, Obamacare and more. Now, he’s being blamed even for the rioting enveloping Venezuela in response to the economic devastation brought by its socialist regime. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who famously melted down over Trump’s election victory last November, was reporting this week about a donation from Venezuela’s state-run oil company to the Trump inauguration.
