Leftists protesters are furious after organizers of a “shame march” against 72-year-old Senator Johnny Isakson called off the event when they realized Isakson, who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, is just days removed from back surgery.
The “shame march” was needed because, according to the protesters, Isakson, who had the surgery on Thursday, “hasn’t made an effort to come speak with his constituents.”—More..
I don’t really think any news was made last night, but what happened last night is all anyone is talking about today. Donald Trump was Donald Trump, saying the same things Donald Trump always says. He left out a bit of the bluster, and he did it all on a very high-profile stage. Like other presidents giving State of the Union addresses (which this was technically not), he used various citizens in the audience as props to make his points. He got applause from his party more often than not, and he rarely got it from the Democrats, who pulled stunts like inviting illegal aliens and dressing in white - the meaning of which I neither know nor can be bothered to find out.
But it says a lot about what passes for news these days that Trump is thought to have done so well last night. He pushed his agenda on trade, health care, job growth, energy, national security . . . all the same things that have been his agenda all along. He made no changes or adjustments. He made no substantive news.
That said, he didn’t do anything that gives the press or the Democrats and excuse to call him crazy, unhinged or unstable - and thus he came off as “presidential” (whatever that means) and he “hit a home run.”
After eight years of suffocating under the racist stagnation of B.O. and the House gavel even in the grip of a witch like Nancy Pelosi, President Trump’s address to Congress last night was a breath of fresh air.
Immediately after watching ABC’s live monitoring of the event I put aside my notes, went to YouTube, and watched former president’s Obama’s first address to Congress after he had taken the helm in 2008. The contrast I saw in his audience’s reception was breathtaking.
When I showed Jaybird the pistol, he gave me a withering stare.
“Where’d you git that gun, boy?” the old black man who was my best friend and mentor asked.
“I borrowed it from Dad. Late in the evening, me and my buddies shoot rats at the garbage dump a few miles from the university.”
Following Trevor Loudon’s appearance at CPAC 2017, a small group of activists, with participation from Act for America, Alexandria Tea Party, and the Ronald Reagan lecture series, organized a viewing of Loudon’s documentary, “Enemies Within,” on February 27, 2017.
More than 107 northern Virginians came to hear the introduction by Trevor Loudon and to watch the 89-minute film, highlighting well-documented evidence of the advance of communism in America, specific past and current members of Congress who are self-identified communists and Islamophiles, allegedly involved in anti-American activities whose end-goal is the targeted destruction of our country.
Unquestionably, the emotional high point of President Trump’s excellent joint session speech was the nearly 2-minute standing ovation to honor Carryn Owens, widow of Senior Chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens who was killed in Yemen.
There are more Iraqis living in the United States than there are in some major cities in Iraq. 156,000 Iraqi refugees have entered this country in just the last decade. 30,000 of those have ended up in California.
In Obama’s first year in office, the United States resettled three-quarters of Iraqi refugees.
71% of Iraqi refugees are receiving cash assistance. 82% are on Medicaid and 87% are on food stamps. Compare those atrocious numbers to only 17% of Cubans on cash assistance and 16% on Medicaid.
President Donald Trump called for a huge overhaul of the nation’s immigration rules to reduce the huge inflow of low-skill, welfare-dependent immigrants, but perhaps also to increase the inflow of productivity-boosting white-collar immigrants.
In his Feb. 28 speech to the joint session of Congress, he declared:—More…
—BombThrowers: The concept of “political correctness,” or PC, goes back more than a half century. Over time PC has changed America for the worse. It was invented not to expand discussions but to prevent them through peer pressure and intimidation.
The origins and continuing implications of PC were part of a high-profile panel discussion at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) held in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C., over this past weekend.
This fascinating panel met on the main stage at CPAC and featured moderator Jan Riordan of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, along with a panel consisting of Fox News contributor and Conservative Review columnist Tom Borelli, U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Fla.), College Republican National Committee chairman Alex Smith, and Capital Research Center president Scott Walter. It was a wide-ranging discussion, delving into the history of political correctness, its impact in culture and business, the dumbing down of education, and what the future may hold.
