For decades, the political class, as well as other influential people, have observed the maxim “politics stops at the water’s edge.” This simply means that when a president is dealing with a matter of national importance abroad, the criticism stops until the crisis is averted or, at the very least, he is back safety inside the confines of the United States.
With President Trump, that is no longer the case. The political atmosphere in Washington is so toxic that Democrats, and some members of his own party, feel free to take pot shots at him even as he deals with issues that could avert nuclear war.
However, when Robert De Niro let his distaste of this president spill over at the Tony Awards Sunday night on the eve of his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, it not only broke the mold of civility but raised bad taste to a level unseen in prime time, even on an awards show. While De Niro’s “F – – – Trump” comment was deleted by an alert executive monitoring the program at CBS, the actor’s unscripted comment went viral prompting outrage from the right and the left.

Gina Haspel, president Trump’s nominee to head the CIA, is my hero! I’ve never met the woman but from what I know about her she is the real deal — a real feminist in the truest definition of the word.
She is not the radial cheap imitation so popular with the left — the kind of feminist who says, “I want that job. I may not have earned it, but I’m entitled to it because of some liberal perfect-world quota system that says what you do is not as important as your gender, race, sexual preference, etc., etc. etc.” By the way, to be the kind of feminist acceptable to the left you also have to pledge allegiance to the right to kill one’s unborn child for any reason through the full nine months of pregnancy, including through the birth process itself.
The current queen of the anti-real feminists is Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) who first praised Haspel’s nomination and her year as deputy director of the agency saying, “I have spent some time with her … We have had dinner together. We have talked. Everything I know is that she has been a good deputy director of the CIA.” Continue reading “Haspel Fight Proves Democrats are the Anti-Woman Party”
Monday was the latest ugly demonstration by the so-called “Dreamers,” the young people who were supposedly brought here by their illegal parents as small children and, we are told, know no other country. This one was staged to mark the passing of the deadline from President Trump to end the illegal DACA program that Obama created with a stroke of his pen.
Two activist federal judges have issued injunctions blocking his order. Now we must wait for the program to wind its way up the slow as molasses judicial system to the Supreme Court. This is cruel and completely unnecessary as President Trump offered a compromise to, not only allow those DACA recipients to stay, but untold numbers of other illegal young people, even those who snuck in on their own claiming to be teenagers. Additionally, Trump is offering to give them a way to become full-fledged U.S. citizens with all its benefits and privileges, to boot. Continue reading “Where are the Patriots Among the Dreamers?

The Republican Party needs a new mascot. The elephant is no longer appropriate. An elephant is a proud, strong animal. It represents strength, wisdom, loyalty, stamina and leadership. Clearly, after last week’s cave-in to Democrats in order to achieve a long-term spending bill and avoid the possibility of another government shutdown, none of those traits apply to a party that controls both houses of Congress and the White House.
This little compromise, which added another $300 billion to the budget over the next two years, was a complete disaster for a country that is up to its eyeballs in debt and a president that was elected promising to drain the swamp. Earth to the president: The swamp feeds on tax dollars. This deal the GOP is celebrating just flooded the place and added to the stench. Continue reading “GOP Needs a New Mascot”
So now we know why Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer looked as if they were sucking on lemons during President Trump’s State of the Union address. They wanted him to thank Obama for all the good economic news he was touting.
That’s why members of the Congressional (Democrat) Black Caucus could not bring themselves to cheer when Trump announced that the black unemployment rate was now the lowest in the history of our nation.
Most forget that the financial crisis that occurred from the housing bubble in 2008 was ended before Obama took office. The recession that followed was made worse by his pathetic attempt to micromanage the economy. This led to the nation’s weakest economic recovery in modern history. And let us not forget the $800 billion dollars Obama fleeced out of we the taxpayers for those shovel-ready jobs. I think it is safe to say that if that $800 billion had been spend as advertised, we would not have an infrastructure problem now. In fact, many of our roads and bridges would be paved with gold. Continue reading “No Thank You Obama”
Let’s get serious about the mistakes Donald Trump made last Thursday in the sit-down with six liberal senators, three Democrats: Durbin (IL) Bennet (CO) and Menendez (NJ) and three Republicans: Graham (SC), Flake (AZ) and Gardiner (CO). It was not his choice of words. It was that he trusted that those involved were actually serious about making a deal for the amnesty of 800,000 young people (some now in their 30s though we have no absolute proof of age) who claim to have been brought here by their illegal parents as minors.
The meeting was a farce. If these six lawmakers were truly concerned about the DACA young people, many of whom were so young when they arrived they know no other country, then they would have offered a plan that not only dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s, but also included what the president demanded in return. His Continue reading “Trump’s Real Mistakes in the Immigration Debate (Hint: It Wasn’t His Choice of Words”
How nice of the Democrats and their pro-amnesty Republican friends! They want to help President Trump sell what they hope will be his surrender on the border wall to his supporters and the overwhelming majority of Americans who want illegal immigration stopped once and for all. Their solution to his “problem,” they claim, can be found in how he defines the word “wall.”
President Clinton tried that with the word “is.” Continue reading “Are Dreamers not Worth $18 Billion to Democrats?”
