  • Democrats Can’t Ignore Trump Voters

    National Journal ^ | July 23, 2017 | Josh Kraushaar, Politics Editor
    A new report by a prominent Democratic think tank argues that the party needs to look beyond the suburbs to win back power. The centrist Democratic think tank Third Way reliably supports socially liberal, fiscally sensible policies that are catnip to the cosmopolitan wing of the party—and as a result, the group often aggravates the party’s base of populist progressives. But a new study of last year’s election results, provided exclusively to National Journal, underscores the idea that Democrats need to win back working-class Donald Trump voters before they chase moderate Republicans who defected to Hillary Clinton. The analysis comes...

    A majority of Democrats find it stressful to talk with supporters of President Donald Trump, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday. The latest national survey by Pew, conducted June 27 through July 9 among 2,505 adults, found that 68 percent of both Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents find it “stressful and frustrating” to talk about politics with people who have a different opinion of Trump. Just 28 percent of the two groups found it “interesting and informative.” Republicans in the same poll were more split on the question. Only 52 percent of Republicans or Republican-leaning independents said that...

    President Donald Trump plans to use anti-terror law to avoid undergoing a years-long environmental impact study for a large section of a border wall that is expected to travel through a wildlife refuge, Reuters reported Friday night. Trump will use a 2005 anti-terror law created shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack to sidestep an environmental impact study for a 32-mile portion of the border wall, sources told Reuters. The proposed section will pass through the 2,000-acre Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge near the southern tip of Texas. The area is home to 400 species of birds as well...

    PHOENIX, Arizona — There is concern among Phoenix police officers that proposed changes by the city’s police department to restrict officers from contacting immigration authorities will lead to an explosion in gang violence similar to the one that gripped the city in the 80’s and 90’s. In recent weeks, Phoenix officials have been discussing changing the city’s Police Operation Orders with a revision that would not allow officers to contact U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during traffic stops or investigations, Breitbart Texas reported. Before an officer can contact ICE, they “must first contact the Violent Crimes Bureau (VCB) desk...

    Putting Mueller Back in the Box Rod Rosenstein violated DoJ Regulations when he appointed a Special Counsel. Then Special Counsel Mueller overstepped his jurisdiction. Let's break that down. Here is the appointment. The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including: (i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and (iii) any other matters...

    Who would have ever thought that the United States could face a coup attempt against its duly elected President? But for all intents and purposes that’s what’s going down. It’s a derivative of an old-fashioned third-world banana republic mob-style coup that is brewing against Donald Trump. ----- The real issue is that the party of the left -- the Democratic Party -- lost the presidential election and its members lost their minds. The defeat of their seasoned, if corrupt, liberal heir apparent to an inexperienced politically incorrect Republican candidate was shocking and unacceptable, and has triggered new levels of outrage...
  • Exposing the New York Times’ hypocrisy on Jeff Sessions

    NY Post ^ | July 22, 2017 | Michael Goodwin
    Last year, after President-elect Trump picked Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, The New York Times editorial page called the Alabama senator “radical” and “extreme” and tarred him as an unrepentant racist and xenophobe. Last week, after Trump criticized Sessions and others, the same editorial page suddenly discovered a new fondness for Sessions. The Times now insisted that Trump had impugned his “integrity” and that of others “who have spent their careers respecting and protecting” the law. It’s not likely that Sessions is grateful for the embrace. He knows he’s just a pawn — dirt when Trump embraces him, and...

    Despite the continual drama surrounding President Trump and his administration, it is comforting to know that his political opposition is in total chaos. Since the 2008 presidential election of Barack Obama, Democrats have lost over 1,000 state legislative seats across the country. While Democrats have total control of the Governorship and state legislatures in only five states, today Republicans have the most legislative seats in the history of the party. With 33 GOP Governors, control of the U.S. House, Senate and White House, the Republican Party dominates the national political scene today. Unfortunately for the President, Democrats still maintain control...

    Full Title: Vice President Mike Pence: Trump's triumphs are many after only six months and he's just getting started In the first six months of this administration, President Donald Trump has fought every day to deliver on his promises to the American people. At a historic pace, this president has taken bold action to restore prosperity, keep Americans safe and secure, and hold government accountable. President Trump has signed more than 40 bills and nearly 40 executive orders on everything from health care to energy, infrastructure and more. While the previous administration turned to federal agencies to enact its agenda,...

    ExxonMobil – a favorite whipping boy of the left – found itself back in the deep state’s crosshairs this week.The Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Asset Control, a haven for burrowed bureaucrats, announced it has fined the energy giant $2 million for purportedly violating sanctions by dealing with a Russian businessman who had been placed economically off limits to Americans because of his involvement with Russia’s effective takeover of Ukraine. In March 2014, President Obama issued an executive order that gave the Secretary of the Treasury the power to designate Russian officials viewed as contributing to the Ukraine problem and...

    Independent Journal Review ^ | 07/21/2017 | Jason Howerton
    When President Donald Trump took office, there were over 800 proposed regulations left over by his predecessor. On Thursday, the White House announced it had withdrawn every single one of them in an effort to chip away at the burden of government regulations. The Trump administration said former President Barack Obama’s administration left 469 planned actions and 391 proposed “regulatory proceedings,” according to Reuters. White House budget director Mick Mulvaney put it like this: the Trump administration is killing the “slow cancer that can come from regulatory burdens that we put on our people." {..snip..}

    This is for all of those who are not in the MSNBC orbit. Of course, many of you probably already know this, but for a movement that stresses diversity and talks about bringing all people together to fight racist, misogynist, and xenophobic Donald Trump, it’s pretty much a band of white, wealthy, and overly educated progressives who are still stung that Hillary Clinton is not president, or at least that’s the D.C. area, which accounts for one-third of those who have taken part in the protests against President Trump. The Washington Post noted that disparities in education, income, and race...

    Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has given the answer to the mystery behind how Donald Trump became US President through GodÂ’s intervention, Obasanjo said Trump became US President so that America can be humbled. The former president who was said to have mocked the US election that took place in November 2016, made this known at an event held at the French Embassy in Pretoria, South Africa. It was gathered that he said Africa can take charge of its own future if it needs foreign direct investment. The two-time Nigerian Head of state, who said he was happy about the turnout...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush criticised his former 2016 presidential primary foe President Donald Trump on Saturday over his first six months in office. Speaking at OZY Fest in New York, Bush slammed Trump’s chaotic style of governance and failure to focus on his policy goals. He singled out reports that Trump recently suggested that he may attempt to pre-pardon himself to preempt a federal investigation by independent counsel Robert Mueller. “You get disciplined when your team says, ‘No, Mr. President, let’s stay focused on these policy objectives,'” Bush said. “Don’t disparage people, don’t go after Mueller, don’t say you’re...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | July 22, 2017 | Steven W. Thrasher
    Six months into Donald Trump’s term, and Democratic politician’s ability to be an opposition party is, in a word, pathetic. When the poll came out saying that “Democrats stand for nothing more than opposing” Trump, I thought to myself, ‘If only that were true!’” But they can’t even do that well. When House Democratic Caucus chairman Joe Crowley was asked by the Associated Press just what his party’s core message was, he “hesitated” and then said, “That message is being worked on.” It was as tone deaf (but honest) an answer as when Mother Jones writer Kevin Drum – as...
