Media breathlessly tells us Trump has reached the 100 day milestone. But contrary to what many foretold about Trump, we're 100 days in and the only red button Trump pushes is for a Diet Coke - not his nuclear arsenal. Heritage outlines the promises Trump has kept - and not yet kept - in his first 100 days. Political hack Chuck Schumer says Trump has abandoned 'working families' in just his first 100 days. Predictable, empty political rhetoric. Trevor Noah says Trump is 'making bank' by being president. Some thought November 8 would end the political fight in America, but they were wrong. It was only the beginning. Returning to limited government will be a massive fight every step of the way because careers, power & money are at stake for lovers of big government. Looking back is only good for instructive purposes. Trump has many days ahead - and we've got to continue to make political progress, regardless of the score for the first 100 days.

Pushback over Obama's $400k speech to Wall Street has struck a nerve with the Left - and Obama. Defending the hypocrisy. Obama just said there is a gap between those in government & what the people believe. Yep, a $400k gap. Gaining riches from nothing but community organizing & 'public service.' Democrat alternative to Tea Party? LA Times chronicles one woman's 'incredible journey' from a sales convention to organized opposition to Trump. Comparing & contrasting original Tea Party with Democrat protestors of today. Democrats say they learned nothing new from Trump's briefing on North Korea. So why haven't they been doing anything to stop it? Senator Chris Murphy acting like a punk junior high kid. NFL player critical of teams not signing QB Colin Kaepernick - saying he's been 'blackballed' for kneeling during National Anthem.

Trump calls full Senate to the White House to discuss North Korea. Will politics stop at the water's edge - or will the Left politicize this issue of paramount importance? Tension has been building for some time, but it was ignored by Obama Administration. The blame is an immoral, broken political system (communism) and an uncontrollable leader. Rachel Dolezal talks to black South Africans about the struggles about being black, even though she's white. If gender is fluid, why can't race be fluid? What does the scientific community have to say about this? Walter Williams highlights insane predictions of radical climate change community since 1970. District judge rules Trump sanctuary city executive order unconstitutional because Congress controls spending. Judge bundled $200k for Obama. Obama speaking to Wall Street for $400k. Hillary postmortem. Many still blame sexism. Was the Democrat Party sexist in 2008 when it chose Obama over Hillary?

I'm fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend and speak at a local Tea Party event last night. A review of some of the topics we discussed & an update on the grassroots conservative movement in general. Have we hit a plateau? How do we regain the momentum & continue the movement toward limited, constitutional government? North Korea has a large live-fire military exercise. Maybe they should ration ammunition since their economy has to ration everything - or run out of it. Trump wants to release his tax plan this week. Paying for a tax cut? How about the government live within its means, like the rest of us have to do? Trump is inviting the entire US Senate to the White House to discuss North Korean crisis. Considering military options? Elizabeth Warren is 'just like the rest of us.'

Washington Post poll finds President Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton again if the election were held today. America can't be persuaded to vote Hillary after 6 months of incessant attacks against Trump? North Korea threatens to destroy US carrier group & to reduce US to a pile of ashes. French election update. People all over the world are rejecting political elites. Obama makes his return. Liberalism vs Conservatism. Role of government. A comparison in how liberals & conservatives view charity & the people charities serve. It strikes me as odd to name an initiative 'My Brother's Keeper' in light of the story of Cain & Abel.

Terror attack in France just days before their election. Terrorism seeks political outcomes. Sharia law. Radical Islamic extremism. Jihad is a religious war. Who are enemies of Isis? Tensions build around the world - and on the political domestic front. China puts bombers on high alert. US sends 'nuclear sniffer' aircraft to Korean peninsula. Kim Jung-un threatens to nuke US to ashes. Trump says Iran not living up the 'spirit of nuclear deal.' Professor displays painting of beheaded Trump at University of Alaska - Anchorage. Jihadi Joe. Why does Iran need nuclear energy? I thought solar & wind was the future of energy? An explanation of the parody song. GOP compromise on healthcare bill. Vote next week? Pending government shutdown looms. How will Trump & GOP navigate? Patriots correct NY Times story. Turns out almost same # of players attended in 2015 & 2017. Fake news. Have a great weekend!

The Left clings to comparisons like this because they keep losing everything else. That can change, of course! I know you've been counting down the release date to this anti-Trump song. Russian bombers fly near US airspace for 2nd straight night. But today I want to talk about Freedom of Religion. Bill of Rights. Inalienable rights given by Creator God. A summary of the oral arguments of the Trinity Lutheran Church case. Freedom of Religion. Christian apologetics. Ann Coulter shut up from speaking on UC Berkeley campus - because of what the other side may do. Meanwhile, the City of San Francisco is paying extra to clean up from the mess left by massive 4/20 pot party participants. These 2 issues are being handled exactly the opposite of how they should be handled. Well done, California. Ann Coulter says she's still going to speak at UC Berkeley, by the way.

CNN eagerly anticipated Barack Ossoff victory. Instead, they were on the verge of hosting a makeshift cry-in. Ossoff will be in a runoff for the 6th District in Georgia. Ossuff did his best Obama impersonation. Victory for the ages? Dark money? Ossuff doesn't even live in district - and 95% of his campaign funds came from outside district. Bill de Blassio taunts Trump by tweeting out his tax return - except that isn't really what he sent. The superficial Left. Bernie Sanders is a sexist? Maybe we should start calling him Bernie Sexist? US fighter jets intercept Russian bombers off Alaskan coast. Russia claims to have weapon to incapacitate US Navy. Russian TV calls Trump scarier than Kim Jung-un. This sounds very close to what the Democrats say. It's official: if you voted for Trump, you're a racist.

Melissa Etheridge offers this great parenting advice. Works for other relationships, too. Former President Barack Obama takes picture of Michelle on deck of a yacht that could be confused with a cruise ship - and Leftists on the internet fawn over the moment. North Korea: proof that American weakness has been provocative over the years. Tensions rise. US sends missile defense system to South Korea & 2 more aircraft carriers to the region. Pentagon reviews American 'nuclear posture.' North Korea blames US for taking world to the brink of nuclear war while ignoring their 2 nuclear tests and 24 ballistic missile tests last year alone - all of which violate Security Council sanctions. Former FEC Chair calls for regulating political speech online. Why do some constantly tear down 'big business' while trusting their entire well-being & life, without hesitation, to 'big government?' Trump's approval numbers are now at 50% - up 8% from his low a few weeks ago.

Pence speaks in South Korea. Says the “era of strategic patience is over.” Blame should be placed at feet of a broken political system (communism) and their evil, above-the-law dictator (Kim Jung-un). Failed North Korean missile test a US hack? Hawaii on alert because of North Korea. Anti-Trump protestors assault Trump supporters at Berkeley. Police officers fall back & let assaults take place without intervening. Former UFC fighter re-enlists in Army special forces because of Trump leadership. Hotel lobby fights AirBNB. Free markets & innovation. Entrepreneurs vs defenders of the status quo.

The US drops the 'Mother of All Bombs' (Moab) on an Isis tunnel system in Afghanistan. Reports indicate that 36 Isis jihadis & 0 civilians were killed. Left still worried about proportionality. Trump delegates decisions like this to those closer to the field of battle, eliminating the influence of politics on the decision-making process. We need to strike to win & use the force required to win - not be paralyzed by silly factors. Dennis Kucinich & others on the Left are unsettled simply by using the bomb. Duquense University students oppose Chick-Fil-A on campus because of it's so-called 'questionable history on civil & human rights.' Are you kidding me? Jesus came for everyone - and it should be remembered this Good Friday & Easter weekend. What will you do with this most important weekend in history? Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Starting with a few things I couldn't get to yesterday. First, Trump is restructuring government to make it more efficient - and limited. Restoring limited government is going to be a process - and it's going to be a fight every step of the way. Professor calls for Trump to be hanged. Professor who predicted Trump would win in November now predicts Trump will be impeached. Sean Spicer's comments about Hitler & chemical weapons. The apology. The politics. The truth. North Korea showdown. A new nuclear test coming soon? Japan thinks North Korea has sarin-tipped missles. Article in The Guardian that says we shouldn't call North Korea crazy - and that we should view his actions as understandable from his point-of-view. The reality of why we stand here with North Korea. Border arrests are down because fewer folks are illegally crossing border - due to Trump's enforcement of the law. But the funding for the border wall may be on-hold to avoid a government shutdown - which of course would be blamed on Republicans.

Obama was supposed to usher in peace on earth by the power of his personality, but he left it on fire. He demonstrated that American weakness is indeed provocative. North Korea didn't happen overnight. Putin & Russia went from an Obama punchline 4-1/2 years ago to single-handedly the greatest threat to the American republic. Trump has been described as dangerous, volatile & reactive, but he's gotten China on board to stop North Korea's nuclear program. Jeff Sessions says catch & release policies are over, and if you're caught illegally trying to enter the US, you will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. A comparison of how liberals & conservatives engage in political fights. There is a big difference between the US & North Korea having nuclear weapons - and the two are not morally equivalent. Estes wins seat vacated by Pompeo in Kansas, although it was much closer than in was in November election. Putin says trust for US has decreased under Trump. How did this not get figured into his calculations to help Trump 'steal the election?' Trump works to restructure the government to work more efficiently and to return us to a limited government. Draining the swamp.

Neil Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court Justice, even as Democrats continue the fundraising narrative that the seat was stolen from Merrick Garland. Trump Administration says subsequent strikes on Syria are possible if they continue using chemical weapons. Susan Rice told us months ago Syria had no chemical weapons. Russia won't try to shoot down Tomahawk missiles. Editor upset by term "Tomahawk" missile. Message to North Korea? China sends 150,000 troops to North Korean border in preparation of US actions. Trump sends aircraft carrier strike force to North Korean region & asks military advisers for options on North Korea. Does supporting Syrian strike mean you have to be against Trump's extreme vetting of refugees? Picture of unborn twins 'kissing' in womb at 24-weeks. Waiting for Planned Parenthood to call for the image to be boycotted. Federal judge rules Texas voter ID law is unconstitutional. United Airlines debacle. What an inexcusable disaster.

Isis attacks Christian churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday - the beginning of the Holy Week. Islamic extremists are waging a holy war on anyone not willing to accept their ideology & worldview - which includes Christianity. Trump & Syria. Trump doubles down. Tensions continue to rise. The Left suddenly needs more than emotional reasoning for policies. Getting a second medical opinion leads to different diagnosis a staggering 88% of the time. But if the patient is earth, and the doctor is a climate change scientist, the diagnosis only changes 3% of the time. And interestingly, the treatment always involves more government & less liberty. Scientists say large portions of the Great Barrier Reef will not recover from bleaching. Does Google pay women less than men? Does Elizabeth Warren pay women less? Some say no. But if the champions of closing the 'pay gap' cannot fix it in their own organizations, how on earth do they expect to 'fix' it nationally? Do we us biological gender when calculating these numbers?

US strikes Syrian air base with Tomahawk cruise missiles. A review of what happened & a summary of our response. The argument for Syrian strikes. Trump's statement on air strikes against Syria. The argument against Syrian strikes. Rand Paul's comments. For those still in denial about Hillary's loss, close your eyes & pretend she gave the orders for the missile strike - because it's exactly what she endorsed hours before the strike. Gorsuch filibuster. The nuclear option enacted. The final confirmation vote set for today. JDot's latest 3-in-3 breaks down Gorsuch appointment. And yes - it's another instant classic. Hillary tells us why she lost ...

Syrian city hit with chemical weapon attack. US blames Assad. Russia denies Assad to blame. Remembering Obama's red line. Complicated mess in Middle East. Big government dictator thug Assad versus a radical Islamic terrorist group (Isis). Big government killed millions in 20th Century. When is a humanitarian mission justified? Or should we only intervene when vital US interests are at stake? How do we properly weigh them? Trump won't tell media his plans, tells them 'you'll see.' Pence says 'all options are on the table with Syria.' Angela Merkel to the rescue: Germany passes bill that mandates social media sites to remove fake news or hate speech within 24 hours or face fines of up to $50 million. Faux outrage over Gorsuch, nuclear option. Senator Merkley (D-OR) speaks for over 15 hours - about nothing. McConnell says Democrats would filibuster Ruth Bader Ginsburg if that was Trump's nominee. Democrats are masters of catchy phrases that mean nothing once scrutinized, such as 'change the nominee, not the rules.' Great apes know when wrong choices are made?
Posted: April 6, 2017, 12:22 pm
Name another American who was caught up in 'foreign surveillance.' It's not common to know anyone unmasked - but we know Trump. Why? Chris Matthews says this is a diversion from Trump/Russia - and anyone who mentions the name 'Susan Rice' is a sexist & maybe a racist. Canadian national anthem going gender-neutral? Breitbart summarizes what we learned from Rice interview. Someone involved in the unmasking of Trump had to tell someone or we wouldn't be talking about it today. Reminds me of the story of Jesus' resurrection. Some mistakenly tell us the women never told anyone their story - but if they didn't, how is it recorded in the Gospel? The arguments Chris Matthews & his cast of liberals use to defend Susan Rice could, ironically, be applied almost verbatim to the Trump/Russia narrative. Gorsuch vote. The Left is intentionally misleading Americans through inaccurate propaganda emails. An actual partisan filibuster has never been used to reject a nominee. But there are examples in American history of the Senate not taking action on Supreme Court nominees. Two current justices, Thomas & Alito, both were confirmed with fewer than sixty votes (52 & 58, respectively). I know liberals aren't good with numbers, but they should know both of those are less than 60. Wish I had more time. Have a great day.

Democrats have enough votes to filibuster Gorsuch. I can only imagine the begging & pleading required to get Senator Schumer to approve a Democrat senator's support of Gorsuch. Compare & contrast GOP healthcare vote with Democrat Gorsuch filibuster. Democrat leadership ensures members toe the line & vote as they demand. Will GOP change Senate rules or crumble under pressure? Why do Republicans have to answer all of the questions? Why don't Democrats have to tell us why they are filibustering Gorsuch? Why don't they have to explain their use of a partisan filibuster for a legitimate vacancy to be filled by an individual who passed their hearings with flying colors? This is fantastic: Sharon Stone spoken word tribute to Maxine Waters. Susan Rice reportedly made the call to unmask Trump officials. Is a Russian video to blame. Remembering the tragic Benghazi scandal. By the way, this has the appearance of a scandal much more so than the "Trump/Russia/Putin/Trump" accusations. Richard Milhous Obama? What about 'two speech rule?'
Posted: April 4, 2017, 12:34 pm
A weekend of meltowns. The LA times demonstrates its level of insanity in an editorial against Trump. Tom Perez, following in the footsteps of previous DNC leaders, says Republicans 'don't give a s*** about people.' How I value people. The value of the individual & the dignity of work. And then there were 3. Chuck Schumer is filibustering the will of the American people, not Neil Gorsuch. Schumer deliberately misrepresents the truth, yet again. Democrat Party believes in Big Government for America and iron-fist leadership over their Congressional members. Only 2 reasons Democrats have given for opposing Gorsuch: his belief in Originalism & the silly argument that this seat belongs to Merrick Garland. In other words, they oppose Gorsuch because he supports the Constitution or simply out of spite. If a Democrat Senator comes out in favor of Neil Gorsuch, they are self-identifying their seat as a 2018 toss-up. Adam Schiff admits there is still no definitive link between the Trump Campaign & Russia - but that's why it's important to keep looking. One could definitely make the case that this looks like a witch hunt. But we definitely know this is about politics & obstructionism for the Left. Trump v North Korea.

Trump has drawn battle lines with the Freedom Caucus - but that's the wrong enemy. San Francisco calling for Trump's impeachment. Sounds like the sort of thing Bloomington may jump in on - like their boycott of Arizona over immigration enforcement. Senate votes to cut Planned Parenthood funding. Good. Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill, not a provider of women's healthcare. Gorsuch nomination. Will Democrats mount a successful filibuster? A brief summary of what happened between the unfortunate passing of Antonin Scalia until today. Democrats oppose Gorsuch because he believes in the Constitution. Either that or they oppose him for spite over Merrick Garland. Either way is indefensible. It's fake news to further the lie that Supreme Court nominees must meet a minimum 60 vote threshold. In fact, 2 of the current Justices on the High Court were confirmed with fewer than 60 votes. Filibuster vs simple majority vote. Some Democrats are happy to see GOP change 'nuclear option' to apply to Supreme Court nominees so they can benefit from it in future. Other Democrats - like Joe Manchin & Heidi Heitkamp - are worried a filibuster will harm their re-election chances. But they are not making these decisions on their own: they are asking Schumer for permission to oppose a filibuster. T-Rex was a 'sensitive lover?' Was he also a prehistoric metrosexual who drove a Prius & got mani-pedis?

The transgender bathroom law in NC & political pressures from organizations like the NCAA & other businesses. It's ok to play in China but not North Carolina? Give me a break. Hawaii judge extends ban on Trump's travel ban. Met with Obama right before he released his ruling? Background on this issue. Even if this judge lifts his decision, there is another judge somewhere in a blue state that is ready to put a stop to the travel ban for some other reason. This can go on forever - and it's not the way it's supposed to work. Maxine Waters thinks she's more patriotic than Trump voters. And her goal is to remove him as president. And we're supposed to be bipartisan, right? I wonder if Maxine Waters thinks the Drexel professor's tweet was patriotic. Wish I could talk about sanctuary cities today, but I don't have time.

We are having a political civil war. Far left versus traditional America. And establishment Republicans versus conservatives. GOP needs to take offense. Half of Democrat Senate seats up for election in 2018. Put these Senators on the political hot seat. Left gloats over failure of AHCA. Careful: pride comes before the fall. Trump not throwing out first pitch at Nationals game - but it's not quite as traditional as the misleading Time story would have you believe. Pro-Life advocates who created secret Planned Parenthood videos have been charged with crimes in the People's Republic of California. What's going on with Planned Parenthood by the way?Lots of cash. Lots of abortions. No annual report. Taxpayer-funded abortion mill. Brexit offically begins. Nigel Farage & Team Brexit move to Calexit. Others try to get California to secede from the Union.

Looking for prayer partners, advertisers & people simply interested in being involved in this journey. I value you greatly. God bless.

Trump to sign Executive Order that places the American worker over regulating climate change. Predictably, the Left is freaking out and overselling what this really means. Democrats are calling for Rep Devin Nunes to recuse himself from Russian investigation. Democrats are setting up to filibuster Gorsuch - all because he believes in the Constitution. Compare & contrast way the media covered the nominations of Merrick Garland & Neil Gorsuch. Has there been a filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee before? Is that a legitimate use of the filibuster? Iowa State professor wants students to write essay about 9/11 from terrorist perspective. Maybe we should write an essay from victims' families. Or what about writing an essay about abortion from the unborn child's perspective.

AHCA did not have enough votes to pass House on Friday & was pulled from consideration. The fallout. Steve Bannon to create 'sh**list' of Republican House Members who opposed AHCA? Congressman Poe quits Freedom Caucus. Biden says he would've beaten Trump in 2016. Trump to work with Democrats on next try with healthcare. Schumer says Democrats will work with Trump if he abandons his right wing ideas. Schumer to filibuster Gorsuch. Will McConnell implement the 'nuclear option' and push Gorsuch through with a simple majority vote? Merrick Garland hurt their feelings. Combine that with a nominee who is an originalist & not a liberal activist, and you've got a filibuster led by obstructionist Chuck Schumer. Courts approve first 'genderless' person.

Trump says AHCA negotiations are over. Calls for Friday vote. Case can be made this is Obamacare Lite because it doesn't fully repeal the structure of Obamacare. Free markets have the best answers & government creates the biggest problems. Moving us toward single payer? Congressman Nunes voices concerns about Trump communications being intercepted & his being unmasked. More evidence for Trump/Russia or Richard Milhous Obama spying on Trump? A return to the conversation about the Salon article saying Republicans are 'cruel to the poor' for wanting to cut entitlement programs. A personal anecdote from a time I ran a Boys & Girls Club. Heritage report on the results of The War on Poverty over 50 years. By what metric has this been successful? What really helps the poor: govt programs or private charity & (gasp) churches? Wish I had time to discuss more. Have a great weekend! GO DAWGS!!!

Democrats are prepared to filibuster Neil Gorsuch because he wants to follow the Constitution. Let that sink in. Healthcare vote today, the 7th anniversary of Obamacare being signed into law. Some in Congress seem fixated on symbolism over substance, insisting on having a vote today. If House Freedom Caucus isn't on board, it's hard to convince me this is a conservative piece of legislation. This process, regardless of the details of the AHCA, hasn't felt right to me. London terror attack tied to (or inspired by) Isis. It's about time to hear leaders acknowledge our enemy: Islamic terrorists (jihadists). Salon article: 'Why are Republicans so cruel to the poor?' This article falls one level short of sophistry. In fact, the arguments are almost as stupid as worrying if our military's presence will cause the island of Guam to tip over. Don't have time to talk about Congressman Nunes' comments about Trump's communications being intercepted & his being 'unmasked.'
Posted: March 23, 2017, 12:19 pm
Sorry for being out yesterday. Working on growing & building the show. Gorsuch masterfully avoids stepping on landmines set by Democrats. So now they attack him because he's an originalist. The Constitution is a 'living, breathing document?' Maxine Waters threatens impeachment. Comparing the legislative styles of Democrats & Republicans. A look at the Constitution & Originalism. The far Left doesn't like the concepts of Truth & an unchanging standard. Cosmo tackles the issue of Constitutional Originalism - and why they say it's bulls***. Where else would you turn to get insightful constitutional analysis? What's going to happen with GOP healthcare bill? Ryan continues telling us it will pass. Rand Paul says it won't pass Senate. Trump threatens conservative legislators? We need to quit thinking of this as Republicans' turn to create a top-down government solution & truly allow the free markets to work. Reasons Heritage Foundation conservatives don't like the AHCA. Kaepernick donates $50k to Meals On Wheels.

Donna Brazile comes clean & admits to sharing debate question with Hillary. I can't believe Democrats would replace her - unless she's looking for work at the DNC. Neil Gorsuch hearings this week. Merrick Garland & the 2016 campaign over the Supreme Court. The Liberals are not about to give up ground on the Supreme Court without a fight. The Court, along with our system of higher education, is one of the main tools the Left has to advance liberalism. This is exactly why Donna Brazile has to share questions with Hillary: liberals cannot win by being honest in elections. But they are good at using force and the Supreme Court. College to cost $500,000 in 18 years? This nonsense will continue as long as taxpayers foot the bill. Tomi Lahren is pro-choice. Says limited government should not be involved in telling a woman what to do with her body. But this is about protecting life - and the other body in the equation: the unborn child's. A conscience requires we address this part of equation, too. Ignoring that is intellectually dishonest. Trump Nazi billboard defended by 'artist.' TV show Colony described by Vox as 'accidentally the most relevant show on television.' I'm going to have to discuss this tomorrow. Lots to unpack in this piece.

McDonalds tweet. Account hacked? True or not, this is the common excuse. Chris Matthews trying to channel his inner Rachel Maddow & drive ratings up with his own silly comments. Calls Trump "weirdo in the basement." I think he's confusing Trump with his listeners. (I'm teasing liberals. Take it easy.) How did we get here with North Korea. Bill Clinton. American weakness is provocative. Negotiating with evil madmen is truly insane. And when they have nuclear weapons & threaten to use them, why would we take military options off the table? We are not threatening war, they are. We are trying to maintain peace. And you don't do that through weakness & capitulation to madmen. I tire of America being blamed for every problem in the world. The US is trying to maintain peace. Romans 12:18 tells us to live at peace ... as far as it depends upon us. Madmen sometimes make it difficult or even impossible. We're making the same mistakes with Iran. Jihadi Joe. We don't want war, but there is risk in doing nothing and empowering maniacal, dictatorial madmen - be they in North Korea or Iran. Want to drive the Left & Media mad? Introduce a budget that cuts budgets for all but 3 Cabinet agencies. And increase budgets for those related to military/defense. Chelsea Clinton is writing a book called "She Persisted." It's reportedly for people who have been told to quit. As a conservative, I've been told to quit - and I have no interest in the book. Have a great weekend!

Trump temporary travel ban 2.0 stopped by a federal judge. Judge Derrick Watson apparently connects Islam to terrorism, because the executive order focus on stopping terrorism and allows entry for 9 of the 10 most populous Muslim nations in world. Although objective thought makes it clear that there are Islamic terrorists who believe waging jihad against the United States is their religious duty. If media was consistent, they'd now be saying this judge is helping Isis recruit. Judge is Obama appointee. Republican judges on 9th Circuit Court seem to support Trump's authority to issue ban. By the way, where are all the lawsuits resulting from Obama ending 'wet foot, dry foot' policy, which clearly is designed to target Cuban nationals? Hypocrisy is really deep. Healthcare fight continues. Organizing for America email arguing for the government to effectively be the church or at least the private charity. Obama releases NCAA brackets, but declines ESPN invitation. If he would've focused on bracketology for 8 years, America would have much fewer problems today.

Rachel Maddow overplays her 'Trump tax return' hand. Reminds me of Geraldo opening Al Capone's vault in 1986. It is reported that these tax returns have been released previously & the Wall Street Journal reported on them. What does the Left think they will find in Trump's returns? Insanity. Perfect story for MSNBC, home of Brian Williams. If we are told, unequivocally, that Trump & Putin colluded to 'steal the election,' should we also not be asking who is colluding to keep Trump from governing? Turning back regulations - and someone making the case for Federalism & States' Rights while thinking they are arguing to keep the Federal regulation. I eagerly await the return of (former) President Obama to ESPN to talk about his brackets. If he only would have stuck to that for 8 years, we would have a lot fewer problems to fix. Can you imagine Trump making NCAA bracket picks on ESPN?

Where do I start today? Fareed Zakaria tells us Vladimir Putin is the most powerful man in the world. The Nutty Professor Bernie Sanders holds a West Viriginia town hall on MSNBC, promoting socialism & socialized medicine. Paul Ryan doing his best Nancy Pelosi impression. CBO gives bad score for AHCA. I don't like the bill, but why do we trust the CBO? Study finds (yes, a scientific study) that parenthood leads to longer life. Using media's normal tactics, could we not say Planned Parenthood cuts the life of its clientele short by preventing them from becoming a parent? Equal pay apparently won't happen until we've been destroyed by climate change. Fareed Zakaria thinks Putin is most powerful man in the world. Apparently, the only man in the world capable of 'stealing the US Election.' On whose watch did he become so powerful? And that's even post 'Russian Reset Button.' Congressman Luis Guiterrez 'arrested' by ICE. He got his headline, but it's not why he wants you to think. European non-profit 'experts' want to give pedophiles child dolls to satisfy their corrupt urge. Overeducated idiots.

Mother Nature apparently protesting EPA Director Scott Pruitt by unleashing a blizzard in the Northeast in mid-March. Obamacare battle continues. Trump budget to cut federal workforce in most areas. That's good news, even though the Left & Media panic over this. But why not take the same approach with Obamacare? Sexy, Sexy, Sexy Martin O'Malley makes the news this weekend talking about his campaign's failures. He's right: "None of it made any sense." The superficial Left. A discussion of 'Repeal & Replace.' Being wise about the process of dismantling Obamacare is not synonymous with creating our own government-run GOP version of Obamacare. Free markets are one of the most powerful tools in the conservative's tool belt. Let's trust them. An anecdote from college. Hillary met with Russian Ambassador, too? Do we believe the Kremlin or the Clinton Campaign? Would we have been told Russia hacked the election had Hillary won? Would there have been calls for her to be impeached for colluding with Russia? Tumblr trying to save Planned Parenthood with same old meaningless, predictable talking points. It's just boring now.

I meant to mention this earlier in the week: "Reason to Vote for Democrats" shoots to top of Amazon charts. But it's a book full of blank pages. Creative reviews. No tax reform until after August recess? Democrat Party is a train wreck, but GOP is not handling healthcare properly. Devastating to craft a bill that doesn't unleash the free market. Democrats will use that failure to push single payer. Pence says Obamacare replacement will pass by spring. When will we be repealing Obamacare. History of 'repeal & replace' - and what the real promise was. GOP Congress is telling us to 'trust them' to build upon legislation later. They'll forgive me for not trusting them. Is this legislation Trumpcare, Ryancare, Obamacare Lite, Congresscare, something else? Branding matters. If Americans see this as Obamacare Lite, I think it may have big difficulties passing. Repeal is a necessary part of this because that is the original promise. Trump halfway through first 100 days. Approval polls put him near 50%. NCAA tournament time: perfect time for Obama to make his public return & promote his $65 million book - even if it has blank pages at this point. ESPN cutting on-air talent due to losing revenue. The Nutty Professor Bernie Sanders says, 'despair is not an option.' Sure it is. That's why the Leftists have cry-ins, Play-Doh, coloring books, teddy bears & service dogs for college students who voted for Hillary.

House Ways & Means Committee approves GOP Obamacare replacement. Paul Ryan touts bill. Republican leaders present false choice: this bill or break your promise to repeal Obamacare. House Freedom Caucus opposes. So do many conservative groups. And just 'about everyone.' Mark Meadows thinks Trump will change his view of legislation once he understands conservative objections. Why not pass HR 3762 again? Big government versus the free market. Why free markets are better. Choice versus force. Government cannot even manage pencil supply, so why can it manage healthcare? The default point for solving problems in America is not government control, it's free market innovation & consumer choice. In Trump's first month, illegal border crossings are down 40% and 298,000 new jobs were added.

Organizers of a 'Day Without a Woman' strike have overpromised and undelivered. Pretty audacious goal. Why can't we respect & appreciate women without having to petition the government to get involved in some way. Good comes from good people, not big government. What's a 'right?' Is the GOP engaging in 'bait & switch' tactics? First it was repeal. Then it was repeal & replace. Now it may be simply replace. Heritage outlines what GOP healthcare bill (American Health Care Act) does and does not do. Where did the idea that companies provide health insurance to their employees? Interestingly, it came as an unintended consequence of government intervention after WWII. It's time for the GOP to repeal Obamacare.

Lots going on today. Madman in North Korea lobbing missiles in general direction of Japan - putting Japan on highest level of alert. North Korea says practicing strike on US military base. Korean peninsula at night. US taking criticism for THAAD (South Korean missile defense system). Wonder why they'd need that? GOP beginning move on Obamacare. Trump offers to fund Planned Parenthood, if they stop providing abortions. They immediately declined. Is this really about women's health? Science. Beginning of life. Tom Perez hypocrisy in protesting Trump's new executive order on immigration. Was he protesting Obama's end to 'dry foot' policy - which actually could have impacted his grandparents, who immigrated from the Dominican Republic. Disingenuous Left. Reminder: Scripps Policy is strictly enforced on this program. Liberal optimism? Seriously? Is there really such a thing? Reports indicate that FBI probes involve 300 people admitted to US as refugees. Not sincere to say Trump is banning Muslims.
Posted: March 7, 2017, 1:17 pm
In case you were peacefully marching at a Trump rally over the weekend only to be assaulted by Leftists, you may have missed this: Trump accuses Obama of wiretapping his campaign. If media were consistent, they'd want an inquiry into why Richard Milhous Obama launched Watergate 2.0 against Trump. Finally, a political scandal that makes sense to me! Comparing Trump/Russia Scandal with Watergate 2.0. Details aside, we knew this is exactly what having President Trump would look like. Comparing how the Left & the Right respond to political scandal allegations. We do know Obama Admin was listening/watching people around Trump. Trump's people will say it was political; Obama's people will say it was because he was colluding with Russia.

Government has grown for decades. Politicians have increased their power. In fact, many consider their primary job to be getting elected & re-elected - not helping implement the will of the American people within the framework of the Constitution. They are in all-out war against Trump, who promised to 'drain the swamp.' And they are doing everything they can to protect big government liberalism - making every single step difficult for the Trump Administration. Let's discuss Jeff Sessions & Russia with this in mind. Ben Carson just confirmed as HUD Secretary yesterday. Longest Cabinet approval since George Washington. The cries against Jeff Sessions for his resignation. Perjury accusations coming from the same people who applauded Bill Clinton for real perjury. Sessions insist he testified honestly. CNN tells us the real objective: preventing the advancement Trump's agenda. Claire McCaskill caught in real deceit. I'm officially implementing The Scripps Policy for educating liberals. Kaepernick no longer going to kneel during National Anthem. Coincidentally, he decided this as he's looking to be signed by a new team. You want to be discussed on this program, do something like this: American man claims to be rightful King of England. Have a great weekend. See you Monday.

Trump addressed a joint session of Congress last night. I thought it was good & I liked the overall message. J-Dot thought it was Trump's best speech ever. Emotional moment with widow of American soldier who was killed on a mission recently in Yemen. Two minute standing ovation. Even Van Jones impacted. Some liberals may need 2 teddy bears or a new supply of coloring books to cope with the aftermath. I've got 2 safety pins on today to help make liberals feel doubly safe. As some predict end of Trump presidency is just weeks away, Trump explains what he & his team have been accomplishing. Love Trump going over the media's heads. Trump says he inherited a mess. Obama blamed Bush for his entire presidency. Reform legal immigration & the goals that should drive legislation. Repeal & replace Obamacare - and the principles that should be followed in the process. How a father saved his daughter from a rare disease, and how the FDA makes it harder for more things like this from happening. Trump quotes Bible while honoring fallen Navy Seal Ryan Owens, which undoubtedly infuriated some on the Left. Wish I had more time. See you Friday! (I'm out tomorrow.)
Posted: March 1, 2017, 1:17 pm
Trump to address joint session of Congress tonight about his budget & agenda. Reports state he wants to increase military spending by $54 billion & cut budgets at the EPA & State Dept. The budget, our debt & the beast known as big government. 'America first.' Repealing Obamacare. Why can't the House & Senate pass HR 3762 again & send to President Trump - just as they did to former-President Obama? Playing politics. Repeal & replace? Boehner says they'll never repeal. Bucknell covers bathroom mirrors to help students with 'body positivity' and 'self love.' Just an example of what the Left thinks the American taxapayer should provide free-of-charge to students. Mexican Catholic church calls US immigration policies 'acts of terror.' Meanwhile, we have politicians (like Obama) who refused to say Islamic extremists are terrorists. An upside-down world.
Posted: February 28, 2017, 1:15 pm
Rich irony at the Oscar's. Much like the 2016 Election, the assumed winner snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. A perfect ending to a night full of speeches and jokes targeting Trump & his deplorable supporters. Some in the Left deny radical Islamic terrorists target those in the LGBT community. That's unequivocally false, as they target anyone who doesn't share their beliefs & worldview - like the Christians now fleeing Isis in Egypt. Isis encouraging cannibalism of non-Muslims & using puppies as suicide bombers. Trump to unveil budget that reportedly will increase military spending and cut EPA spending. What will conservatives think of this? (We know what the Left will think of it.) Trump to address Congress tomorrow. Tom Perez elected DNC Chair. Sally Boynton-Brown, my favorite choice for the position, should now apply as an administrator at this 'anti-racism' Seattle preschool. We teach our kids to love God & to love people. What's so wrong with that approach?
Posted: February 27, 2017, 1:15 pm
Republicans now have the power to 'repeal & replace' Obamacare, but they're indecisive. And they're making me nervous. Most of them liked having the issue to campaign on, but some of them don't seem intent on repealing it. Boehner says they won't repeal it. Some genuine disagreement on how to proceed, too. List of Obamacare tax hikes. Some governors are refusing to work with Trump on enforcing immigration law. Ironically, these liberals are citing federalism - which they normally despise. What places a bigger financial burden on the state: deportation or illegal aliens living in the state? I'm more concerned with Congress not following through on campaign promises than Trump. LA Times: the political losers don't have to be nice. Exactly why there is a 'liberal, not bitter' talk radio program. Democrats (predictably) plan 'total war on Trump.' Bannon talks of 'deconstructing' administrative state at CPAC. Good. Dow Chemical CEO makes liberal heads spin with comments about Trump. Have a great weekend!
Posted: February 24, 2017, 1:17 pm
Democrats got shellacked in 2016 - despite their arrogant predictions of a certain Hillary victory. They now pick up the pieces and will choose a new leader of the DNC this weekend. Tom Perez, considered by some as the establishment candidate. Keith Ellison, who is supported by the progressive/ultra-Left wing of the Party. Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Debbie Boyton Brown, Debbie Wasserman Schultz II, is my personal favorite because she will provide great show content. How I think the superficial Left views this race for DNC Chair. James O'Keefe to release video footage of newsroom talk of (presumably) CNN. Can you imagine what they say while the cameras are off? It sounds like we're about to find out. Trump fighting media does not constitute a crisis or a totalitarian regime. More speech, not less, is best. Debating whether it's presidential is another issue. Chicago Public Schools not cooperating with ICE. Trump reverses Obama's transgender bathroom directive. These fights will continue through Trump presidency, which some experts say will only be a few more weeks or months. Are some Leftists silently (or even openly) hoping for a Trump assassination? It definitely has been the topic of their comments.

A nation's governmental ideology is tremendously important. We have a myriad of examples around the world, ranging from Communist to 'Democratic' Socialist to Islamic Republics to our Constitutional Republic. Marine Le Pen refuses to wear Islamic head scarf, cancels meeting with Lebanon. 'Democratic' Socialism grows in US. According to a study, which of course are never wrong, millennials self-describe as narcissistic. This is a short jump to an entitled mentality. Dangerous crossroads for America. More people, more chickens. Tragedy of the Commons. The role of morality and, yes, even religion. Even Christianity. Charity. Brotherly love. American goodness. An argument for a Creator. R.C. Sproul 'The Myth of Chance.' Believers in God often have very well thought-out reasons, despite being painted as believers in myths & fairy tales. So it turns out PESD isn't a real thing? Who would've guessed it?!

Some liberals believe that Donald Trump's 'Russia Scandal' is worse than Hillary's 'Benghazi.' What exactly is the 'Russia Scandal?' A brief discussion of Benghazi. The Benghazi investigation led us to the secret Hillary server - which, according to the Left, became the very server the Russians hacked to help Trump win the election. Democrats plan to obstruct, delay, stop and, if possible, impeach Donald Trump. This is their strategy - no matter what Trump decided to do as president. Some Republicans liked having the issue of Obamacare to run on, but they never really wanted to do anything about it. That's in part what we're witnessing now with the uncertainty on how to proceed - along with some legitimate disagreement from different groups within the Party. No time to talk about John McCain, Milo, "I pee with LGBT" or the socialist disaster of Venezuela. Have a great day.

Had fun at my 2nd annual daddy-daughter dance this weekend. Chris Wallace & Reince Priebus discuss 'fake news.' Fake news isn't exclusively state run media. The news media in free markets can lie, too. Consumers just have alternative options & lying news organizations will presumably pay the price for misleading customers. Some radicals in the media view it as their role to either (a) stop Trump's agenda or (b) help initiate impeachment hearings. And if there are a few fake news stories along the way? Not a problem because the ends will justify the means. Ironically, the press is questioning whether President Trump has free speech to challenge them. Trump 'likely' 2nd shortest term as president ever? I detect a little wishful thinking.
Posted: February 20, 2017, 1:12 pm
Donald Trump Press Conference yesterday gives us a lot to talk about. Media is worried that Trump is attacking freedom of press & speech. But if they can still say whatever they want about the president, this argument comes across a little pathetic to me. Trump goes directly to the American people. J-Dot returns for his latest patented 3-in-3. Trump lists those things he & his team have accomplished in his first 28 days. Reframing the debate & highlighting his successes, including campaign promises he's delivering. He wonders why people ever doubted his seriousness about some of his promises.
Posted: February 17, 2017, 1:15 pm
Puzder withdraws his name from consideration for Labor Secretary. Was reported that as many as 12 Republicans were prepared to oppose his nomination. A list of concerns. Employing an illegal alien should have won him the support of Democrats who support sanctuary cities. WSJ reports that intelligence community withholding information from Trump because of fear of leaks. California CHIP/Medicaid enrollment. Hillary gets standing ovation. I'm still hoping for her to launch that much anticipated talk show.
Posted: February 16, 2017, 1:14 pm
Take away all details & specifics of the first month of the Trump Administration, and we knew this would be the political landscape. Media attacks & thinks it has Trump in the corner. NYT piece about Trump Team's contacts with 'Russian Intelligence' during campaign. Is this just the latest, predictable attack - or did the media stumble upon a real story, like a blind squirrel finding an acorn? Compare & contrast how media covered Hillary Clinton's hacked server & Michael Flynn's hacked phone call, and it's obvious which side the media is on. Just be consistent. But if you read the whole article, you can see that these alleged encounters with Russian intelligence agents could have been made unknowingly during legitimate business dealings. In other words, the spies could have been secret agents posing as business contacts during legitimate business meetings where hacking the election wasn't discussed. This story buries pertinent information, which leads one to question its intentions. Legitimate news story or hit piece designed to further the Trump/Russia narrative?
Posted: February 15, 2017, 1:15 pm
Michael Flynn resigns over Russian call. Russian hack story line moves back into the headlines. Celebratory tone by Left & Media? Did Dennis Rodman violate the Logan Act, too, for his talks with North Korean dictator? Media tells us Michael Flynn made himself subject to potential blackmail. But yet 1/2 of voting Americans (+3 million) were prepared to elect someone mired alleged pay-to-play quagmire wrought with blackmail opportunities. Free markets. School choice. The Left is anti-choice in every area other than marriage & abortion. A meteorologist loses her job for questioning man's role in climate change & the safety of vaccines. The Left is fine with you having your own opinion, so long as it conforms to their opinion. Longest delay in confirming a Cabinet since George Washington. Happy Valentine's Day. See how the holiday is viewed (and protested) by some groups around the world.

Grammy's get political. Wish I could say this is surprising. Joy Villa dress. Former NFL player wants athletes to speak out more on political issues. Several Patriots are skipping trip to Trump White House. We are in for major political battles for (at least) the next 4 years. Al Franken worried about Trump's mental health. Trump says radical Elizabeth Warren, whom he calls Pocahontas, is now the face of the Democrat Party. Identity politics. Bureaucrats oppose Trump in order to save their careers. Michael Flynn in trouble? Reminds me of Obama's comments to Medvedev in 2012. Obama's 'applause line' to Mitt Romney during 2012 debate. Who is it that has the Russian problem again? The media & the border wall: now they're telling us it will keep people from leaving the country who are here illegally.
Posted: February 13, 2017, 1:11 pm
Do you believe I had some tell me I should've cheered for a Hillary victory so I would have content for the show? Turns out Trump gives us plenty to talk about. Ninth Circuit Court upholds stay of Trump's Executive Order. Islamic Terrorism: Trump is trying to ban the latter, not the former, from entry into the US. A discussion of Islamic Extremism & terrorism. Tom Price confirmed. The Left continues to protest & obstruct, moving attention to stopping Andrew Puzder now. Have people from the 7 countries Trump targeted to ban killed others in acts of terrorism? The role of the courts & the executive. Kellyanne Conway's comments about buying Ivanka Trump's stuff - and what I really think she was trying to do. What is going to happen with Obamacare? Republicans facing heat at town hall meetings. Democrats meet to strategize & get their latest talking points. But their Party is an absolute mess right now. Keith Ellison ties to Nation of Islam & Louis Farrakhan. Have a great weekend.

Good to be back. Business trip to beautiful, warm Tampa. Return to cold, snowy Indiana. Lots has happened since I was last behind the microphone. Returning to our constitutional roots. Fight over so-called 'Muslim ban,' which doesn't affect the most populous Muslim countries in the world. Role of Commander-in-Chief. Role of judges. Constitution. Balance of Power. Liberal activist judges. Elizabeth Warren & other hardcore Leftists are jockeying for control of the Democrat Party. How can they help the Party regain the blue-collar worker? Do they even want to? Jeff Sessions confirmed. Betsy DeVos confirmed. In the wake of the 2016 Election, the Democrat Party appears to be moving further Left into more radical territory. The Democrat Party is a complete disaster right now.

Super Bowl Weekend. Brady hated by some because of his MAGA hat & relationship with Trump. Should sports & politics mix? How does wearing a hat in the locker room compare with taking a knee during the National Anthem? The American ideals celebrated by the Anthem is what makes the existence of the NFL even possible. If sports & politics mix, it's because liberals want big government to permeate every element of our lives. NYU violence. Rhode Island legislator fired for talking politics at her job in restaurant. I'm sure some will tell us food & beverage industry has always been tied to politics by citing the Boston Tea Party. Betsy DeVos. Liberal pessimists move their precious Doomsday Clock to 2-1/2 minutes before midnight. So many question about this. I'll be back on Thursday. Have a great weekend!

Democrats build a glass ceiling over the head of Betsy DeVos, who was nominated to be 3rd female Secretary of Education. I guess the war on women is over? What happened to proudly proclaiming 'I'm with her?' National Review article explains why. The status of the Democrat Party. Abandoning white working class voters? Prepare for more radical rhetoric, protests & violence. Got to keep the base fired up and engaged. We welcome blue collar workers to the Conservative movement, which is their natural home - despite what Democrats have tried to do to convince them otherwise. Nancy Pelosi tells Indiana Congressman Andre Carson 'tell them you're Muslim' in front of the Supreme Court to stoke the fire & agitate the base about a false narrative: Trump bans Muslims. They want you to believe Carson & other US Muslims are in jeopardy of getting deported or imprisoned. Persecution of Christians increases and spreads across world. Most persecuted group in the world. Where is the political outrage about this?
Posted: February 2, 2017, 1:17 pm
Donald Trump names his Supreme Court pick: Neil Gorsuch. The Left is vowing to filibuster (obstruct) this pick. Claim this vacancy was stolen from Merrick Garland. Faux outrage. Obstructionism. What should we look for in a Supreme Court nominee? Gorsuch to apply law as it was originally intended, regardless of his personal opinions. What is a filibuster? The purpose is to extend debate, not shut it up. Nuclear option gives Senate the ability to bypass filibuster rules for filling vacancies in federal judiciary. Republicans must follow Constitution & rules when they are in power. But they also must use legitimate rules in their favor to avoid pure obstructionism. Heritage suggests invoking the two-speech rule as an alternative approach. The Left & the Media are going to make this a spectacle no matter what GOP does if they indeed try to approve Gorsuch. Bottom line: GOP needs to follow Constitution & Senate rules, but they should not be obstructed from enacting the will of the people as the majority. And Democrats should try to win the argument instead of being obstructionists.
Posted: February 1, 2017, 1:15 pm
Screaming racist, xenophobe & Islamophobic about Trump's temporary immigration executive order is disingenuous. But there absolutely can be debate about whether it's wise or not. Political theater. Buckle up for drama with the announcement of Trump's Supreme Court pick tonight. Iran Update: Testing ballistic missiles that violate a UN resolution. Filibusters aren't what they used to be. Will the Senate use the 'nuclear option?' Democrats vow to filibuster no matter who the nominee. Comparing & contrasting to Merrick Garland appointment.
Posted: January 31, 2017, 1:12 pm
Trump's so-called 'Muslim ban' doesn't affect vast majority of Muslims around the world - or their countries. Focuses on countries that are a hotbed for Islamic terrorists. Who 'demonized' these countries on the list?: Islamic jihadi terrorists. A disguise for xenophobia or an attempt to curtail the spread of Islamic terrorism? Trump criticized for signing this executive order, but then criticized for not making it cover other countries like Saudi Arabia. Forgive me for questioning Chuck Schumer's tears when he just said his job was to be an obstructionist. Andrew McCarthy explains why immigration is the president's role - and why he is acting within his constitutional authority. We can debate the policy, but Trump isn't acting unconstitutionally. The silly fear the Left has that we will drive more to terrorism by using certain words or instituting travel bans from terror hot spots. This is much more offensive to average Muslims than the travel ban from clearly dangerous parts of the world. No time to discuss other stories - like the shooting in Canadian mosque (another act of evil) or the US/Mexico issue regarding the wall.
Posted: January 30, 2017, 1:11 pm
The Left & the Media are in utter panic mode. A discussion of a CNN hit piece. The strategy of obstruction & chaos - helped by the relentless media narrative. Voter fraud. Is Trump lying about it? Or is he simply wrong? Better yet, what if he's right? The Media who told us Trump was lying about his campaign pledges now tells us he's 'paying back' his voters. Payback looks a lot more like the Clinton Foundation. By the way, why is Clinton Foundation essentially closing it's doors? Flashback: J-Dot Election PSA. Cleaning up the mess in DC requires big actions - like what Trump is doing. Teacher shoots video of Trump with water gun. As one of our listeners pointed out: a gun in the classroom Liberals can support. Californians announce plan to secede. I can hear Trump now: "We're extending our border wall to California, and California is going to pay for it."
Posted: January 27, 2017, 1:11 pm
Trump acting quickly & decisively. In postmortem analysis, Democrats apparently believe they need to double-down on hardcore liberalism. Choosing Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi. The superficial Left at it's best. I'm pulling for Sally Boynton Brown to be DNC Chair. Oh - did I see Hillary Clinton may be launching a talk show in preparation for a 2020 run? I sure hope so! Media mad at how Trump won't call on the 'best' journalists. What's wrong with trying to stop the disingenuous media narrative? Trump's claims may lead to investigations into voter fraud. I can almost hear Democrat leaders thinking 'uh-oh' now. A quick review of some of Trump's Executive Orders. It appears to me that these are legitimate Executive Orders designed to help with the execution of congressional legislation. But I'm also not a legal scholar. Let's just make sure we do things properly every step along the way. Have a great day!

How did we get here politically? Setting the stage before Trump was elected. Ineffective, stupid government bureaucracy & overreach. Taxes & spending. Obamacare. Duplicity of services. Poor performance. Lots of excuses. Lifetime politicians. Politicians created a void that Donald Trump filled. China builds islands and can make it rain, but we can't build a wall along our border? Trump to cut programs & agencies. Trump's approach & leadership style. Aggressive agenda. Focus on results immediately. Combine this with how the Democrats respond with protests (sometimes actually leading to riots) & engage in the politics of personal destruction, and you can see the tables are set for all-out political war.

President Trump: Day 5. How can the Left deal with this for at least 1,456 more days - and maybe double that? Arrogant media upset Sean Spicer didn't call on them first. Johnathan Karl asks Spicer if he pinky promises he won't lie to them. The Left is freaking out over Trump's 'America first' position. Asking 'why are they protesting?' ignores the strategy of the Left: Obstruct, Impugn & Delegitimize. Post on Medium that focuses on women's protest. Pay inequality. WNBA. Pro-Choice talking points that simply aren't based in reality. Taxing feminine hygiene products. Women must protect themselves from predators. Paid maternity leave. Objections to being objectified while wearing vagina hats & carrying umbrellas that look like breasts.

Somehow, in spite of dire warnings from Leftists, Donald Trump did not start a nuclear war this weekend. Violent Inauguration protests. Peaceful but misguided women's marches. Super Bowl set. Republicans need to take offense & push through their agenda aggressively. Setting the stage for the political fight. The dishonest media. A president who will fight back. Real protestors & violent radicals. The Democrat strategy of delegitimizing Trump & obstructing his agenda. What exactly were the women's protests about? Vox explains what the women's march was about - but I think I'm more confused after reading it. Have a great day - and see you tomorrow!
Posted: January 23, 2017, 1:08 pm
Trump Inauguration Day. Panic, boycotts, obstructionism from the Left. Promises of immediate action by Trump on several issues. An end to American weakness, which is provocative. North Korea. We welcome robust debate from the opposition, but not obstructionism. Trump promises to fix this bloated, inefficient, ineffective federal government. Good. Media coverage. Political theater. What will it take to truly begin to fix the problems we see in the federal government? I understand some fear dramatic government change. But if those changes move us back to our fundamental constitutional ideals, what is there to really fear? The power of an engaged electorate who holds political leaders accountable.

Apparently, even the Antarctica sea ice knows the Donald Trump Inauguration is near. Disney on Ice. US airstrikes on Islamic State targets in Libya, home of one of Hillary Clinton State Dept 'success stories.' We dodged a major bullet to avoid Hillary Inauguration tomorrow. New York Times panic editorial: 'Are You Not Alarmed?' Fears of causing war with China. Man-made islands growing territory & claims to South China Sea. Taiwan. North Korea became a nuclear state under the weak, naive leadership of Bill Clinton. The idea that Obama has overseen a world of peace & tranquility that is about to be upset by Trump's approach is simply not based in reality. In Hillary Clinton fashion, California has a $1.9 billion accounting error. And they want to secede from the United States. Good luck with that. Have a great day!

As many as 35 Democrat members of Congress boycotting Trump Inauguration. Congressman John Lewis did same thing in 2001 by boycotting Bush Inauguration. Black leaders worry they won't have a seat at table with Trump Administration while some deliberately remove themselves through this silly boycott. Trump faces criticism for not attending African American museum, instead opting to meet with MLK's son. Optics vs Results. The 'tolerant' Left, no doubt fresh off of preaching inclusion, just dropped a pro-life group of women as an official partner of their women's protest march the day after the Trump Inauguration. I hope Liberals don't see this article because it may give them an idea to 'outlaw' their political opposition. But there is a good chance they won't see it because it's in Fox News.

One week left for Obama. What will he do prior to leaving office? He ends Cuban immigration policy referred to as "wet foot, dry foot" policy. Fleeing brutal communist dictators. Obama's inconsistency on immigration & refugee policies as it pertains to Cuba, Mexico/South America & Middle Eastern refugees. Should we conclude Obama is against Cuban immigration because they look different than him? This is what is said about Republicans. Obamacare. Jim Demint/Heritage pushes for total repeal. Free markets hold the answers to healthcare, not a top-down, centralized government approach. Some on the Left see this as an opportunity to move toward single payer. Insane. It's time to let the free market address this problem.

There is an all-out assault on Trump, his team, his election and his agenda. And he hasn't even taken the Office. Jeff Sessions & Corey Booker. Rex Tillerson & Marco Rubio. Buzzfeed, CNN, Russian dossier, fake news & Trump's press conference. A comparison to Obama's early days in office. Didn't we want good relations with Russia when Hillary & Obama gave them the silly Russian Reset Button? You'll forgive me if I'm skeptical. Get ready for an all-out political war for at least the next 4 years. Obama whined about one single news outlet for 8 years: Fox News. Trump has a plethora of news sources opposing him, and he's ridiculed for standing up to a rude CNN reporter who was disrupting the press conference. Buckle up for at least 4 more years of this!

Four of Trump Cabinet picks have hearings delayed because they are delayed in getting approval from the ethics office. This better not be because they didn't provide an original birth certificate. Latest development in Russian story. Since when do best friends bribe one another? A discussion of Obama's farewell address, which I thought was truly awful on a very fundamental level. My disagreements with Obama are both fundamental (our basic worldview differences) and the political tactics (e.g., denouncing partisanship while being leader of the Party who unceasingly engages in it). Wish I had more time. Have a great day!

Congratulations to the Clemson Tigers, National Champions. Oh, the symbolism: Obama serves as a groomsmen for White House Travel Director. Obama to deliver farewell address tonight. He still has 10 days to wreak havoc, though. What's President Obama's real legacy? Iranian Update: US Navy fires warning shots at Iran. North Korea acts like this after their nuclear agreement with Bill Clinton in the 1990s. Betsy DeVos hearing delayed - and New York Times has some superficial thoughts on it. Jeff Sessions a racist? Corey Booker to testify against Sessions. Condoleeza Rice endorses Sessions. (I was unaware she was a racist.) Looking forward to having J-Dot back to drop a patented 3-in-3 soon! Have a great day!

My voice is essentially back. Sorry for the issues last week. Boring weekend of NFL football. Congress draws battle lines for first 2 fights: Trump's Cabinet picks & repeal of Obamacare. Sharpton promises civil disobedience. Reconciliation. Republicans need to be strong & not fall victim to the typical tactics of the Left. Obama tells us he didn't underestimate Putin. Duplicity of the Left & the Media. Have a great week!

Intelligence community telling us Russians leaders celebrate when Trump won election. But did they invade Ukraine or shoot down commercial airliner in celebration, or is that only on Obama's watch? Jon Karl questions Administration about China hack. Fresh off his New Year's Eve debacle, Don Lemon is confused if Facebook Live post of tormenting young disabled man is evil. What is so confusing about hate & evil? Symone Sanders' stupid remarks on CNN. British economy ended 2016 as strongest of world's advanced economies, seeing accelerated growth after Brexit vote. Why are the experts always wrong? Another story that will be proven wrong if Obamacare is repealed: 3 million jobs to be lost. Have a great weekend!

The fight to repeal Obamacare heats up. Heritage provides real data to combat 'fake news' reports about Obamacare success. Media & Left unite to defend Obamacare. Trump & Pence criticized for not providing details on how to improve healthcare after repeal of Obamacare. Maybe they should respond with comments like those given by Democrats when passing ACA. Democrats have vulnerable Senate seats to defend in 2018, and defending Obamacare isn't what those senators want to do. Senators like Jihadi Joe already have to defend stupid Iran Deal. Obama releasing up to 20 more Gitmo detainees before Trump is sworn in as president. Dan Rather teaching course on "Truth in the News," which you can take for a whopping $10!

Missed being here yesterday. Voice problems. The Left is gearing up to fight to defend Obamacare. Get ready for some anecdotal stories of Obamacare success. But are there no other solutions? This is what obstructionism looks like. Schumer Senate preparing for unprecedented opposition of Trump Cabinet. Liberal Law professors unite! A comparison to how Obama's Cabinet appointments played out in 2009. Opposition vs Obstructionism. House planned to change rules, but Trump tweet changed that. GOP gave up legitimate tools to oppose Obama agenda; Democrats use seemingly benign tools as blunt-force instruments against those furthering conservatism. Big surprise for socialists in Sweden: it's too expensive! What's so wrong with work?

Happy New Year! Don Lemon's CNN New Year's Eve broadcast. Mariah Carey must've been sabotaged by the Russians. Russia 'election hack' story continues. Politically motivated? Trump inherits world on fire from Obama. ISIS strikes Istanbul. Planning chemical attacks in Europe? Unstable world braces for Trump? It was caused, in large part, by Obama & American weakness. Mother Nature warns Trump of building a border wall with Mexico. Obama's Farewell Address on January 10. Looking forward to 2017!

Berlin terrorist killed in Milan, Italy. Hijacked plane in Malta. World is on fire, which is why the story of Christmas is so important: Jesus came to redeem a world that is hopeless left to it's own devices. Iran Update: Iran claims $1.7 billion US cash ransom payment used for military upgrades. The significance of Christmas. My personal testimony. God bless. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. And we'll see you again on January 2, 2017!

So much to discuss today. NBC attacks HHS Director nominee Dr. Tom Price for choosing the wealthy over the sick. #BoycottDelta video. Jumping to conclusions. How about we get a little evidence first? Other videos vlogger has released: 'Arabs on a Plane' and Counting Down in Arabic on a Plane Experiment.' One of the most ridiculous articles I can remember reading in some time about the Russians & their history of successful hacks. Delusional stuff. Anyone can access full, unedited emails on Wikileaks - despite the media trying to tell us that was illegal. A catalog & summary of some of the emails. Obama's thoughts on the hack. Something a little different tomorrow as we go into Christmas weekend.

Elf on the Shelf rules broken in the Huff home. Authorities searching for Tunisian man, whose was identified by papers in truck used to murder innocent people in terror attack. Stay of deportation. Radical Islamic terrorists target Christian festivals & events. Other jihadist targets include capitalists, homosexuals & insubordinate, free-thinking women. Refugee program in US on pace to slightly exceed Obama's goal of 110,000 refugees in FY2017. Lena Dunham wishes she had an abortion. A few words about abortion. Empathy. Protecting the unborn & loving those considering abortion. Left & #NeverTrump crowd unite to stop Trump. Just a matter of time before we start hearing about impeachment. McConnell rejects notion of Select Committee on Russia 'election hack.'

Terror in Europe. Attack in Berlin. Russian Ambassador to Turkey assassinated. CNN remembers beginning of WWI. Terrorist originally reported to be Pakistani refugee, but now authorities think the wrong man detained in Berlin, so details are still unclear. Hillary ends up with more 'faithless Electors' than Donald Trump. Trump's history of outperforming predictions of 'experts.' MTV proposes some New Years' Resolutions for 'white guys.' The superficial Left. Obama warns Trump about using too many executive orders...
Posted: December 20, 2016, 1:06 pm
Electors meet today to officially elect Trump. The Left & the Media is suddenly a fan of our Founding Fathers. Martin Sheen calls female Elector 'Mr.' Oh, the irony. Salon, who I'm told is just ever-so-slightly Left-of-Center, calls Trump voters Putin's pawns. So I guess Putin must have personally scheduled this meeting at Sky Harbor Airport? George Soros to fact check? You've go to be kidding me. Conservatism, Liberalism, Liberty & Religion. The biggest user of propaganda has been big government.

Problem solved!: Obama is going to 'take action' against Russia for 'hacking the election.' Fortunately, taking action for Obama usually just means talking. David Friedman for Israel ambassador. Another problem solved!: Facebook to police 'fake news' on their social media site. Huma said FBI never provided warrant to search Anthony Weiner's computer. Silly video of celebrities pleading with Trump Electors to change their votes. Socialism unhinged in Venezuela - and it's incredibly sad. World renowned physicist comments on the idea of there being a 'god.' Christian apologetics. Death threats to Electors. Electoral College casts vote on Monday - see you then!

The Left has a love affair with Communism & the Soviet Union. My class in college: Is Capitalism Really Better? Andrew McCarthy puts the 'Russia hack' issue in perspective. Were the leaks from Democrats? Obama's DHS hacking Georgia - and Georgia wants answers. An infographic that purports to show the best, most thought-provoking news sources. Muslim girl fabricates story of Trump supporters attacking her on NYC subway. Sexist viruses in the 21st Century? The Petite Patriot returns today with a blog post.
Posted: December 15, 2016, 1:04 pm
The Left is in utter meltdown mode. I mean, complete meltdown mode. Russia. CIA. Trump. Tillerson. Nuclear codes. Panic. Since Dr. Jill Stein failed (again) in silly recount efforts, flipping Electors is their last chance to stop a President Trump. Larry Lessig (Harvard) tells us as many as 20 Electors are considering flipping to Hillary. They are also content weakening Trump & making him spend political capital early on. A brief discussion of the Electoral College & the process of getting to a vote on Monday. How many Electors typically 'flip'. Evan McMullin's strategy was built upon possibility that no one would get to 270 electoral votes.

Liberal heads are exploding everywhere this morning. Russian 'hack' story met with appointment of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State - apparently Putin's 2nd best friend, after Trump. Rick Perry as Secretary of Energy, a department he once said he'd abolish. What's wrong with someone with a vast amount of international business success as Sec of State? Draining the Swamp requires a different way of doing business with new leadership. Wisconsin & Pennsylvania certified. DNC leak source not a Russian? Harry Reid accuses Trump Campaign of colluding with Wikileaks. Another lazy, predictable & boring story from CNN that sees threats in Trump, but refuses to accept damage Obama Administration has caused. Electors to be briefed by intel community? Director of Natl Intel James Clapper testified no strong evidence exists connecting Russians to Wikileaks. How do the Los Angeles Rams know it's time to move on & Democrats don't?
Posted: December 13, 2016, 1:04 pm
CIA says Russia wanted Trump elected. Claims Russia unequivocally 'hacked the US election.' How did Russia go from a punchline in 2012 to being single-handedly responsible for the destruction of our Republic in 2016? Tell us why Trump wants Putin & Putin wants Trump. What about Obama Administration using tax dollars to influence Israel's election? Some CIA vets are telling us not to rush to judgment on Russia. John Bolton raises question about potential 'false flag.' Liberals in DC are pulling homes off AirBNB so they don't have to rent to Donald Trump supporters. No time to discuss potential Tillerson nomination, GOP increasing Senate majority by 1 seat or the controversial 'Happy Hour Playset' for toddlers.

I thought the Russians were hacking our election system. Do they run DHS? Democrat gives a fair analysis of the absurdities of the Clinton Campaign's excuses for losing. Polar Vortex. Is Trump divisive by reaching out? Global Warming & Climate Change. One man gaffe machine Joe Biden is embarrassed by the campaign. Here's an election predictor you didn't consider: Gov Terry McAuliffe's chickens. City in Washington will save $1.39/day with $100,000 investment in windmills. Windmills set to pay for themselves in a mere 197 years. Dallas pension fund mess. Have a great weekend!

Having fun at our home with Elf on a Shelf. Get out the coloring books & Play-doh: the Left is in a tizzy about Trump's appointment to lead EPA. Fear of Trump nominating too many generals to his team. A look at the Pacific Front in WWII. Okinawa. How Truman & the generals approached final phases of defeating Japan. The incredibly difficult decision of using atomic bombs in Japan actually saved millions of lives. Japan was the aggressor. We tried to avoid using the bomb. They forced our hand by insisting on fighting to the death. Here's a headline that will make Lib's heads explode: Israeli Army Men May Have One of the World's Highest Life Expectancies. Do 97% of scientists agree?

Donald Trump is Time 'Person of the Year.' Get out the coloring books & Play-Doh for the snowflakes & liberals to cope. A word about American Greatness. Pearl Harbor Remembrance. Trump builds team who is prepared to get results. Mad Dog Mattis is a reflection of our WWII military leaders. Obama gets very tepid applause from troops during his last national security speech. We need to fix our problems & not worry about following the silly self-imposed rules for limiting how we address them. Pence lays out Trump's aggressive first 100 days. Argentine judge rules woman can marry stepdaughter.

J-Dot returns today for his latest 3-in-3 instant classic. A brief history of 3-in-3. Hillary picks up 5 votes in PA. On pace to be declared winner in 2183. Don't put this past Democrats. Hanging Chads 2.0 in Florida recount? J-Dot's latest 3-in-3. Interested in hearing more? Check out our 3-in-3 archive or J-Dot's lyric sheet. Trump building team - and it's enough to make Libs' heads explode. Trump & Twitter. Joe Biden 2020? I can't have this interfering with Kanye West 2020. GWU students apparently want more than just protection for students who are illegal aliens. University of Louisville basketball coach's rant about winning & entitlement. Tony Blair frets about anti-establishment movement.

Trump takes a call from Taiwan president, which according to the media & the Left, is going to send the world into a tailspin. What about Obama breaking years of US policy in Cuba? Iran? Castro funeral symbolism. Iran Update: Iran threatens to walk away from stupid nuclear deal because we apparently violated it. Huh? Jihadi Joe. Ben Carson to lead HUD. Daughter of EU official, who volunteered at refugee center, was raped & murdered by Afghan refugee. Enjoyed addressing questions at our church's youth group last night. Special thanks to Nate for the invitation. Nancy Pelosi somehow thinks Democrats don't want change. I hope she keeps thinking that.
Posted: December 5, 2016, 1:02 pm
A discussion of the Carrier deal to keep jobs in Indiana. Who's money is it anyway? Comparing & contrasting this type of negotiation to Obama's purchase of GM. They're not the same. Meanwhile, Obama is working on this secret deal that imports refugees from terrorist hotspots around the world. Excited about something I'm doing this weekend with our church's youth group. Some questions we'll be addressing. Want to make a liberal's head explode during the holidays? Just say Secretary of Defense Mad Dog Mattis. Lots of things happening behind the scenes here that I hope to be able to share soon. Have a great weekend!
Posted: December 2, 2016, 1:01 pm
The Left & the Media are in complete disarray. Dr. Jill Stein's recount - and her reasoning. Who did she vote for anyway? Jellyfish mistaken for breast implant. This story demonstrates how the Media & the Left look at many stories. The Democrats double down & re-elect Nancy Pelosi as Minority Leader of the House, demonstrating to Americans that they have no intention of moving back toward the center. Trump negotiates deal with Carrier, saving 1,000 Indiana jobs. Comparing this with Obama's big government tactics. Chip & Joanna Gaines are in the Left's crosshairs because their church believes homosexuality is sinful. For those interested in this topic, consider reading Is God Anti-Gay? - written by a pastor who, as he says, 'struggles with same-sex attraction.'
Posted: December 1, 2016, 1:05 pm
Today we discuss the development of Trump's cabinet & the media's pre-written script for any of his nominees. Trump's business interests & how success in the private sector prior to entering politics is foreign to those in the Swamp. Anderson Cooper's response to Trump is quite telling.
Posted: November 30, 2016, 1:05 pm
Ohio State University terror attack. What this incident may be about - and what it definitely isn't about. An irresponsible tweet about race. A gun control tweet. A short summary of what happened at OSU. Vetting refugees & Islamic jihad/terrorism. The media narrative vs truth. Iran Update: Iranian naval vessel aims it's weapon at US helicopter. Trump announces HHS Secretary pick Rep Tom Price of Georgia. Obamacare repeal? Didn't have time to talk about recount mess led by Jill Stein or Trudeau now skipping Castro's funeral.
Posted: November 29, 2016, 1:02 pm
The socialists & communists, who among many other things are notoriously horrible at math, are now leading an election recount in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania & Michigan. The death of Fidel Castro. Some idiotic comments about Castro. Prime Minister Trudeau. #TrudeauEulogies trends on Twitter - and it's pretty funny. Fidel Castro was a brutal, wicked, evil leader - pure & simple. There is nothing praiseworthy of his leadership. And those who praise him are not fit to be leaders. Iran Update: missing nuclear device. Oops. Comparing Iranian leaders & Castro - and how they are portrayed in the media.
