Despite what the liberal media hopes and predicts, President Trump may have a better chance of staying in the White House for another four years. The radical shift in the Democratic Party may be the nail in the coffin for the party’s ambition of taking back the White House in 2020.
National Review has the details:
People, not polls, elect presidents.
Presidents run for reelection against real opponents, not public perceptions. For all the media hype, voters often pick the lesser of two evils, not their ideals of a perfect candidate.
We have no idea what the ...
Would a wall along America’s southern border be the moral equivalent of the infamous Berlin Wall? Of course not. The Berlin Wall was built to keep people in; a wall along our southern border would be built to keep people out.
In any consideration of the use of force – and constructing a wall is a kind of force – we must examine the moral element. To suggest otherwise is to suggest that the hero who pushes the little old lady out of the way of the oncoming bus is no better than the evil man who pushes her into the way of the oncoming bus, because both men like to ...
Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants Americans to support her Green New Deal – or else. “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that come after us, are looking up, and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'” Ocasio-Cortez said at a Martin Luther King Day event.
Conservative Review has the story:
Ocasio-Cortez is referring to a United Nations study that exacerbated climate hysteria last October by declaring the world has just 12 ...
Because the government is still partially shut down, the House and Senate will both cancel their planned recesses and instead return on Tuesday. They will both be in session through Friday.
LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:
Beginning this week and going forward, I’m going to skip the day-by-day discussion of what happened on the House floor during the previous week, and instead limit myself to discussing just the actions of significance.
So, last week, there were two things of significance that happened on the House floor.
First was the ...
Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, urging the U.S. Senate to confirm all of President Trump’s judicial nominees.
“President Trump is keeping his promise to nominate exceptionally qualified judges with a record of adhering to the Constitution and following the rule of law. But because Senate Democrats have engaged in an unprecedented campaign of obstruction, there are now more than 160 lower federal court vacancies – more than existed when President Trump first took office. Democrats ...
Atlanta, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to former Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Former Attorney General William Barr’s testimony gave him the opportunity to show his determination to uphold the Constitution, follow the rule of law, and act in the best interests of the American people. With an independent voice, not swayed by partisan politics, he should be confirmed unanimously with bipartisan support. He proved himself to ...
President Trump partially shut down the government because Democrats failed to compromise with him on a solution to a major immigration problem. Despite negative media coverage, Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought and President Trump have tried to make the current partial shutdown "as painless as possible." Quite the opposite was done during the Obama Administration’s 2013 shutdown when the response was "make it as painful as possible."
The Daily Caller has the story:
Vought joined the OMB in early 2018 and assumed the role of acting director ...
Democratic lawmakers refuse to look at the facts: illegal immigration in our country is out of control. About 85 percent of the migrants that have crossed over our borders in the past three months came over illegally. About 90 percent of the heroin coming into this country comes from the southern border. Americans are responsible for paying over $70,000 per illegal immigrant and that number keeps going up. When will members of Congress take this issue seriously?
The Daily Caller has Jenny Beth's commentary:
Illegal immigration is destructive to the American commun...
Now that Democrats have control of the House, they have begun pushing their gun control agenda. Their latest push has been to regulate private sales and transfers with universal background checks. Already law in a few states like Washington, universal background checks would require gun owners to go through a licensed dealer in order to buy, sell or transfer a firearm. Such laws are unenforceable and place a burden on law enforcement as well as lawful gun owners. Not to mention, such a law would not be enforceable without a gun registry.
