Schumer and Pelosi Own the Shutdown Even as They Try to Blame Trump

  Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have adopted an anti-American position by insisting that nothing be done to secure the southern border against the flood of illegal aliens. Because they represent constituencies that hate Americans and love foreigners, the Democrat leaders believe that they can “win” the confrontation with President Trump over the […]

‘They Took a Wild Chance’

  Smitty has already commented on Willard’s embarrassing anti-Trump column, so I’ll refrain from further comment on that. What seems to have eluded the comprehension of Sen.-elect Romney and other #NeverTrump Republicans — looking at you, Jonah Goldberg — is that their insulting disdain for our President is rooted in their elitist loathing of the […]

Trump Goes to Iraq, #FakeNews Media Embarrass Themselves

  After the #FakeNews media and #NeverTrump ex-Republicans had gone all-in on President Trump’s supposedly historic lack of patriotism, it was discovered that the Commander-in-Chief had been secretly in transit to Iraq even while these headlines and tweets were being written: President Donald Trump made a surprise trip to Iraq on Wednesday to visit the […]

Syria, Afghanistan, and the #NeverTrump Problem of Jonah Goldberg

  After she and Chuck Schumer got into a televised Oval Office argument with President Trump about the border wall — remember, she called the wall “immoral” — the new House speaker dissed the president in a private meeting with congressional Democrats: Trump “must have said the word ‘wall’ 30 times,” the California Democrat said, […]

‘Hate Speech,’ CNN and George Soros

Republican campaign ad in Minnesota. Yesterday, I switched my office TV to CNN, a psychological hazard I try to undertake at least once a week. Yes, it’s a mental-health risk to immerse myself into that bizarre alternative universe — a land where Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon are considered objective journalists — but if I […]

Analysis: True

  President Donald Trump in Las Vegas: “I’m angry at Democrats because of what they do to our country. Today’s Democratic Party is held hostage by left-wing haters, angry mobs, socialist fanatics, deep-state bureaucrats and their fake-news allies. Except for a lot of the fake news that you see from these people back here, this […]

Trump Derangement Syndrome

  Democrats are turning the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh into a circus. They don’t have the votes to block him from the Supreme Court, and they know it, so they attempted to obstruct the confirmation hearing with motions to adjourned (which they knew would be overruled) as a means of suggesting that there is […]
