  • Ana Navarro on Sarah Sanders Restaurant: There’s a ‘Cost to Being an Accomplice’ to ‘Cruel’ Trump

    On CNN this afternoon, Ana Navarro said it’s not hard to understand why a restaurant might have asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave. The White House press secretary said this morning she was kicked out over the fact she serves in the Trump administration: (TWEET-AT-LINK) Navarro said this afternoon people are clearly bothered to see President Trump “lie and lie and lie.” And while some people are offended by baking cakes for gay couples, she added, “some people find the idea of tearing children away from their families and then lying about it morally offensive.” She said she does feel...
  • Politico Accuses Sarah Sanders of an “Attack” for Tweeting about Getting Kicked Out of Restaurant

    Talk about blaming the victim! Sarah Sanders tweeted today about having been kicked out of a restaurant by the owner because she works for President Trump. The Politico story on the incident quotes Sanders’ waiter confirming the incident. But instead of condemning the restaurant, Politico criticizes Sanders: “[T]he tweet qualified as an uncommonly specific attack from an official White House account on a private business.”Get the rest of the story here.
  • Using Their Own Tactics Against Them.

    Using their Alinsky tactics against them. I'm fed up. I am fed up with being called a NAZI. Dan Bongino https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQlw7Vbkva8&t=3087s gave a great show about this and why they are doing it. The Nazis did it to the Jews. Make them look like something less than human, so it's easier to do to them what was coming. The TIME magazine cover was the last straw. I have decided to resume the fight the only way I know how. I am a cartoonist, what can I do? "The political cartoonist is the biggest threat to a dictator, because he can...

    In documents recently released under the Freedom of Information Act, Judicial Watch found that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was actively colluding with the IRS to harm the TEA Party groups that he mendaciously courted in his successful 2010 reelection bid. These groups are believed to have played a significant role in Republicans capturing a majority in Congress. A Democratic majority in both Houses of Congress enabled the passage of the Affordable Care Act (which came to be known as Obamacare) on a straight party line vote in late 2009. The loss of this majority constituted a serious impediment to the...

    President and his family, as well as members of his administration, are truly in danger as the Post Trump Stress Disorder epidemic intensifies and spreads across the country, with no signs of stopping any time soon Each day, it gets worse across the world, but especially in our country. The epidemic of PTSD (Post Trump Stress Disorder) is spreading quickly across the American leftist population. It is easily apparent in a media that is 95% anti-Trump and includes liberal reporters who masquerade as objective journalists. Among the stricken are so-called analysts and who shout offensive questions at the White House...

    The Left's obstructionism, financial irresponsibility, vulgarity, sincere ignorance, and conscientious stupidity Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.—MLK Jr. Liberals are sincerely ignorant. By which I mean that they are committed to, and passionate about, their ignorance—truly they are. And they are conscientious about their stupidity—that is, they are painstakingly precise when it comes to being dim-witted. Ignorance: Lack of knowledge or information. Conscientious: To do one’s work or duty well and thoroughly.

    But, one of these days, I swear that big, good-natured fella, the ARMY of conservatives here in America, will have had enough and finally reach his last straw. Then, surely he will turn and fight It was when I was a kid in junior high that I came to the end of my patience with bullies. At thirteen, I was an easy-going young man closing in on 6 1/2 feet tall. On the way there, a lot of my smaller (most all of them were) peers discovered that I would take a lot of ribbing and silently absorb it or...

    No matter how much makeup we put on the federal procurement system (pig), the underlying animal is still a pig As I wrote this piece, the United States Air Force was sponsoring a conference on innovation. The meeting was held in Las Vegas and those attending were folks who can make a difference in the acquisition of war fighting material for our front line warriors. The reports I received on the meeting were encouraging, but I have horrible memories of countless meetings, conferences and consortia dealing with exactly the same set of issues I first encountered over 30 years ago...

    The American Civil Liberties Union is reexamining its long-standing position in favor of freedom of speech. Spokesman Bertram Petty explained that "in the past the biggest threat to freedom of speech came from the government trying to silence advocates of socialist and communist solutions to public problems. Now that socialist and communist principles form an important part of the guidance for government activities in the United States it is no longer clear that freedom of speech to attack policies based on these ideas is worthy of our support." "For example, a knee-jerk defense of freedom of speech would compel the...

Faced with the possibility of import tariffs being implemented by the Trump Administration, JSW chose to make this massive investment in America rather than construct an entirely new plant in India. “The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital,” JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz said during a First on FOX Business interview with Edward...

    After a week of hounding President Trump for continuing former President Obama's occasional practice of separating the children of illegal immigrants from their parents, they now are howling over his executive order allowing these children to stay with their parents in detention centers. Aspiring 2020 presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif) called Trump's effort to keep immigrant children with their parents "inhumane. When we demanded that children and parents not be separated it was our hope that both would be released. ICE could give the parents instructions to return for a court hearing on whether they can stay and release...

    International trade has always been in the news. Business reporters talk about a trade deficit, politicians wail about jobs being exported overseas, and every so often, the government signs a new free trade agreement or trade promotion agreement (they are different things) with one or two or a hundred faraway countries. But despite all this, international trade policy has not been at the forefront of the news cycle in a generation; not since the US-Canada Free Trade Agreement was voided 25 years ago, to be replaced by NAFTA, a three-party FTA between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Thanks to...

    New York Senator Chuck Schumer evidently had an “aha” moment following Hillary Clinton’s unexpected defeat by President Trump. He is certain that it was a message directly sent from “God.” It is evident, from his thought process, that Schumer believes the message translates to a push for a further fight against Trump.

    I held my nose when I voted for the Donald Trump in 2016, but at the rate things are going now, I will not only happily vote for him in 2020, I will personally do everything I can to get everyone I know to do the same. He is a buffoon when it comes to social media, his personal history is abysmal, and his political naivete is often maddening. But when it comes right down to it, there are very few current issues where I disagree with the direction or the goals of his administration. Execution of that agenda is...

    Andrés Manuel López Obrador is probably the next president of Mexico, and during a speech on Tuesday he called for nothing less than a mass exodus/mass immigration to the US. According to this guy’s twisted (as in globalist, which is internationalist communism rebranded) world-view, free movement of people, wherever one so desires, whether it’s legal or illegal, is a human right. I don’t know what Andrés Manuel López Obrador is smoking, but it must be something awesome. Here’s the quote: “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the...

    Throughout the entire mainstream media manufactured crisis of illegal immigrant children separated from their mothers at the border there has been a constant search for that one photo of a crying child who would be the face of the media’s feigned outrage. TIME Magazine thought they had found that photo, when they published their latest issue and included a photo of a crying Hispanic child looking at President Trump with the caption “Welcome to America”. It turns out, however, the crying 2-year-old was never separated from her mother, as the girl’s father revealed yesterday that “they’re together and safe”. In...
