National Sanctity of Human Life Day

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Since January 22 marks the 45th year since the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, that purported to legalize killing a pre-born baby’s life for any reason and at any stage of development, President Donald Trump proclaims today as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. Part of the proclamation states: “I call upon the citizens of this blessed land to gather on that day in homes and places of worship to give thanks for the gift of life, and to reaffirm our commitment to the dignity of every human being and the sanctity of each human life.”

BREAKING: All of our lives are saved! The government is about to re-open!

BREAKING: All of our lives are saved! The government is about to re-open!
I know. Dr. Kevorkian is dead. Dude, he and I are from the same town!

I still like the joke. It’s certainly a better joke than the “shutdown” that never really was, and is already ending:

Senators appeared optimistic they had the votes to end the government shutdown Monday after leaving meetings more confident about a compromise deal to allow Congress to pass a short-term funding bill.

Um, everyone . . . the government is not shut down

Um, everyone . . . the government is not shut down
I’m not sure what you think the government does, but for the most part it’s still doing it - no matter how convincingly you’ve been led to believe we’re in the midst of a “government shutdown.”

This is actually Chuck Schumer’s fondest dream: While people are freaking out about government stopping, and blaming Republicans for it, government rolls on.

FBI to Congress: Oh, sorry, we ‘failed to retain’ five months of our anti-Trump agents’ text message

FBI to Congress: Oh, sorry, we 'failed to retain' five months of our anti-Trump agents' text messages
If you’ve been following the Robert Mueller investigation in alleged Trump-Russia collusion, you’re no doubt familiar with Peter Strzok And Lisa Page. They’re the two anti-Republican, pro-Democrat, and fiercely anti-Trump FBI investigators who were working with Mueller’s team.  They were also instrumental in the FBI’s go-nowhere investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server. Their back-and-forth communications brought to light the supposed existence of an “insurance policy” in case Trump managed to with the 2016 presidential election.

Precisely what that policy is remains a mystery. Though many speculate that the Mueller investigation is at least part of it, we simply don’t know. What we do know is that Mueller put two of the most venomous, vehemently anti-Trump, people he could find on his allegedly unbiased team.

U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem now appears fast-tracked for 2019 completion

U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem now appears fast-tracked for 2019 completion
Remember, we’re “inflaming the Middle East” with this move. Because it was so docile before. We’re “provoking” Palestinians into attacks against Israel. Because they were so reluctant to attack before.

We’ve caused Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to refuse to consider any U.S.-proposed peace plan. Because he was so amenable before.

Donald Trump Punishes America with Prosperity!

Donald Trump Punishes America with Prosperity!
Satire—In another offensive policy move in his latest attempt to destroy the American nation, we can observe the results of the Donald Trump presidency once again, as this president punishes America. He offends us not only with his manners and presence, his competence and success, his pudgy hands, orange hair and his girth, but mostly by his health. He continues to oppress our long-suffering nation and the entire world and its innocent progressives with prosperity.

Chuck Schumer 2013: It would be the ‘politics of idiocy’ to shut down the government over immigratio

The current government shutdown, which is no big deal but is presented by the media as a mini-apocalypse, is almost entirely the work of Chuck Schumer.  Yes, Nancy Pelosi helped, but it looks like Schumer is really the ringleader. As Dan wrote here, Democrats got all excited about having the votes to shut down the government, and they did just that.

So, what does Schumer think about the shutdown now that it’s happened?

The Obama Administration’s ‘Brazen Plot To Exonerate Hillary Clinton’ Starting To

A former federal prosecutor says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy,” according to an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, connects the dots on former Obama administration Justice Department and FBI officials who may have “violated the law, perhaps committed crimes” to politicize law enforcement and surveillance against political opponents.—More…

So now you know what repatriated profits are

So now you know what repatriated profits are
Dan gave me credit for this the other day, but I’ll take some myself if that’s OK with you.

He remembers from his days as my syndicate editor that I was talking a decade ago about the need to repeal the tax on repatriated profits. It wasn’t a hot topic of conversation at the time. There weren’t a lot of pundits or politicians talking about it.

But business people knew what it was, and they knew how much it was holding back the U.S. economy’s growth potential.

“Don’t Tell Your Mother”

Don't Tell Your Mother
“Don’t tell your mother.” Parents teach their children to recognize these words to warn them of stranger danger. Exposure is the predator’s enemy. “Don’t tell your mother” is the victimizer’s watchword used to silence his/her victims. So it is in politics.

The leftist Democrat party has weaponized secrecy for political purposes. Exposure is their enemy. The Mueller “Russian collusion” probe, launched by a falsified dossier financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee to destroy candidate Trump, handed to the FBI by Republican political adversary John McCain, was deceitfully used by the Obama team to secure FISA warrants to spy on the Trump team.

The fake ‘Trump is racist’ issue

The fake 'Trump is racist' issue
By now, nearly the entire world has heard reports that President Trump referred to the origins of some immigrants as “sh**hole countries.”

Democrats and their media allies spent an entire week castigating the president, calling him racist for using the salty language of Truman, Kennedy, Johnson and Hillary Clinton. Their faux outrage served to distract people from the ways Mr. Trump’s energy, deregulation and tax reform policies have rocketed the stock market to record highs a record number of times, created over two million jobs, slashed black and Hispanic unemployment, and increased US wealth by some $8 trillion since his inauguration.

The Imaginary Hispanic

The Imaginary Hispanic
There are two statistics that explain the Democrat obsession with illegal immigration and open borders.

97% of immigrants in the appropriate grouping identify themselves as Hispanic, but by the fourth generation that number falls to half. Only 7% of immigrants describe themselves as Americans, but 56% in the third generation call themselves Americans. Even the use of Spanish is slowly declining.

If a minority stops existing after a few generations, did it ever actually exist?

Is Musk’s “Rockstar” Status Costing Taxpayers Billions and Harming National Security?

Is Musk's

In October, a CNBC headline proclaimed what many watchers have long suspected: Elon Musk is More Rockstar than CEO. And as we all know, rockstars get to live by a different standard than the rest of us commoners. This seems to be especially true in both the media’s and some government officials’ treatment of Mr. Musk.

Brotopia,” a forthcoming book by Emily Chang of Bloomberg TV details how last summer, a board member of Musk’s SpaceX and Tesla hosted an outlandish, drug-laced sex party that Musk attended. Allegedly, participants consumed ecstasy called “Tesla;” named after Musk’s company because it turbocharged them like the electric car. One woman recounted how an older male took advantage of her by using illegal substances to alter her decision-making.

CNN Has Jumped The Shark

CNN Has Jumped The Shark
Every day it is becoming clearer that CNN, the once proud ratings giant and unquestioned cable network news leader, has abandoned objective journalism to cultivate obsessive hatred for President Donald Trump. It has literally “jumped the shark,” meaning that a once distinguished broadcaster has become absurd. The original definition referred to the fifth season premiere episode of the hit TV show Happy Days, in which the main character, Fonzie, literally jumped over a shark while water skiing in his signature leather jacket. It is also a perfect reference to a broadcast network like CNN that has diminished greatly in quality and popularity.

Sadly, CNN has become infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome. The network is filled with liberal hosts and analysts who regularly spew antipathy toward our President. In the aftermath of the infamous White House meeting focused on solving immigration problems including how to deal with DACA recipients, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) claimed that the President used the word “s…hole” in reference to Haiti and countries in Africa. During the meeting, Trump supposedly asked why the United States should accept more people from those countries instead of countries such as Norway.

Don’t Give Us Barabbas

Don't Give Us Barabbas
Hollywood has reached a turning point. Movie attendance is at a 24 year low and after decades of snickering at their audiences, disparaging Christians, family values, and trying desperately to overturn the culture, the audiences are dwindling. The only reason the yearly receipt totals have not substantially contracted is because they keep raising the ticket prices.

The Trump election put Hollywood, and the liberal elite in a tailspin. With the anticipation of a sure win by Hillary Clinton, the Left was convinced they won the culture war. Permanently in with Happy Holidays and gone forever with Merry Christmas and everything it represents. In with the Robert De Niro rants and out with Jesus. It didn’t happen that way. The majority of Americans have seen what Hollywood values have helped create…secularism, debauchery, broken families, drug use, and the multitude of problems associated with all of it.

Time to define “The Press”

Time to define The Press
Language, unless closely defined, is a fluid thing, open to myriad interpretations of individual words by individual people. Lawyers are perhaps the worst offenders when it comes to taking words and twisting them to have a meaning never intended by the author of a particular sentence. It seems appropriate at this anniversary of the Monica Lewinsky scandal in a time of leftist hysteria over “sexual harassment and abuse” to recall Slick Willie Clinton’s famous:

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the—if he—if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not—that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement….Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”

Who is more important: Americans or Non-US Citizens?

Who is more important: Americans or Non-US Citizens?
Any trade-off in the looming budget fight over a two-year deal or short-term continuing resolution from the Democrats for a path to citizenship for illegal aliens will be viewed as a complete capitulation to the interests of non-US citizens who already drive much of the annual half trillion dollar budget deficit.

In 2017, a Republican-controlled Congress wasted another year by refusing to curtail the vast transfer of American wealth to non-US citizens via healthcare, Medicaid disbursements, immigration infrastructure, K-12 subsidies, university grants, housing developments, “food stamps”, and social security fraud.

Rep. Matt Gaetz, multiple Congressmen: the FISA memo indicates 'People will go to jail'
If you spend your days following, dissecting, and writing about politics, you get used to bombast and hyperbole. Democrats have turned it into an art form. We’ve all heard it a thousand times before. Our troops are Nazis, government shutdowns and tax cuts will kill you, the GOP wants to throw grandma off a cliff, and the world will be uninhabitable by 2017.

When you see so much of this stuff, it doesn’t take long before you learn to separate genuine bombshells - even if they are extraordinary in their severity - from the standard phony, ginned-up, manufactured outrage.

Every Intelligence Committee Democrat votes against letting full House see facts about Trump campaign wiretap warrants
Remember how hard the Justice Department and the FBI fought to not have to turn over documents concerning their pursuit of a warrant to wiretap Trump campaign official Carter Page in 2016? Remember how the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed the documents in August, but had to deal with constant foot-dragging and excuses until Paul Ryan had to threaten them with a contempt of Congress charge to finally get access to the documents?

If you’re any sort of critical thinker, it made you wonder what they were hiding - especially since it appears they may have used the fake Steele dossier to convince the FISA court to issue a warrant to wiretap Page. That would mean a Democrat administration got permission under false pretenses to spy on a Republican presidential campaign. That’s bigger than Watergate.
