Last Friday, the leader of the free world taught the Democrats a lesson in trolling while exposing Democrats as border security hypocrites. Last Friday, President Trump turned the tables on Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats’ presidential candidates and the messaging leaders of the House Democrat Conference, aka AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.

That moment hit when President Trump told reporters that he was considering giving sanctuary cities what they want. Specifically, he told reporters that he was considering shipping illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities when they were released or when CBP ran out of bed space for these illegal aliens.

That set off howls from Democrat hypocrites like Nancy Pelosi:

That’s rich. A woman who’s spent her entire life in San Francisco and Washington, DC, is telling people in Rust Belt states about American character. Right. Further, she’s insisting that elitist Democrats, not entrepreneurs, blue collar workers or the taxpayers whose property taxes keep going up thanks to the massive influx of illegal immigrants into their schools, know what’s best. Right.

Let these windbags deal with the crisis they’re at least partially responsible for. Their cities are going to hell in a handbasket. Homeless people (literally) litter their streets with drug needles and worse. Still, these elitist Democrats insist that they know what’s best for America. These elitist Democrats insist that they’re responsible for defining America’s values and priorities.

Mr. President, ship these illegal immigrants to San Fran Nan’s neighborhood and to Gavin Newsom’s new digs. Send some to AOC’s neighborhood, too. Then tell her constituents that she invited these illegal immigrants to NYC but chased Amazon from NYC.

Let’s face it. Democrats are trying their best to play a terrible hand that’s filled with even cards. (Cribbage players know what I’m talking about.) Cher gets it:

Unfortunately, AOC and Pelosi don’t.

Tom Emmer, my congressman, states in his op-ed for Roll Call Magazine that “Nancy Pelosi’s optimism over 2020 is misplaced.” While I’ve disagreed with Rep. Emmer from time-to-time, I agree with him 100% this time. This video isn’t silly:

It’s beyond absurd. The average American doesn’t care about diversity. They care whether politicians, in this case Democrats, intend to fix America’s problems. At minimum, they want politicians not to screw things up too much.

In the first 100 days, the socialist Democrats managed to call for over $100 trillion in new spending, but are so dysfunctional, they refuse to propose a budget outlining the payment plan for their radical agenda. Ridiculously, these socialists have spent weeks continuing to attack President Donald Trump’s budget proposal. Talk about hypocrisy.

While they couldn’t develop a budget plan, House Democrats did find a way to tax Americans into oblivion, introducing a host of socialist policies that threaten America’s foundation and the values we hold dear: freedom and liberty.

That isn’t all. If Democrats think that they can get re-elected by constantly vilifying President Trump and offering counterproductive initiatives, they’re heading for a wave election — again. Then there’s this:

If that wasn’t scary enough, nearly half of the Democratic Caucus co-sponsored a bill mandating a $32 trillion government takeover of the health care system. Their plan would eliminate private insurance, make it illegal for businesses to offer health insurance to workers, destroy the current Medicare system that America’s seniors have paid into for decades, and make a trip to the doctor feel like a trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

In 1995, after Republicans took over the House majority for the first time in 40 years, they spent the first 100 days passing the Contract With America:

  1. require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress;
  2. select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
  3. cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
  4. limit the terms of all committee chairs;
    ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
  5. require committee meetings to be open to the public;
  6. require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
  7. guarantee an honest accounting of the Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.

This might be the most important paragraph of Rep. Emmer’s op-ed:

The first 100 days have made it crystal clear that the socialist Democrats are not up to the task of leading our country. So in the next 100 days, Republicans will continue recruiting a diverse group of candidates to take back the majority. We are already making tremendous progress, thanks to the hard work of Rep. Susan Brooks, recruitment chairwoman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. Thus far, we have met with over 110 women, 50 veterans and 60 minorities considering a run for office.

Thus far, House Democrats have been a profile of the Do-Nothing Congress. That won’t last long. The American people will throw House Democrats out fast enough.

Yesterday, after AG Bill Barr testified, calmly, that spying did occur, Democrats started howling as if he’d said something controversial. I’m betting that the vast, vast, vast majority of LFR readers found that statement to be totally uncontroversial. Andy McCarthy certainly didn’t find it controversial:

In his testimony Wednesday before a Senate Appropriations Committee subcommittee, Attorney General William Barr made statements that were so clearly correct, they should be no more controversial than asserting that the sky is blue. The fact that they are causing consternation is what should alarm people.

What planet are these Democrats from? Better yet, what solar system were they brought in from? There’s no question that the FBI surveilled people within the Trump campaign. That isn’t questionable. At least, it wasn’t until someone set Nancy Pelosi’s hair on fire:

Ms. Pelosi said that she trusts Mueller but doesn’t trust Barr. That’s interesting since Barr and Mueller are working on the redactions together. At this point, my first reaction is to question Ms. Pelosi’s intellectual honesty. This week, Ms. Pelosi has insisted that she’s the arbiter of what’s un-American, unpatriotic, etc. How is a person who’s spent the past 40 years shuttling between San Francisco and Washington, DC (except for the occasional fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein’s place in New York or Los Angeles) qualified to determine who displays these qualities and who doesn’t?

Democrats that think that they’ll hold the House in 2020 don’t appreciate just how toxic Ms. Pelosi, AOC and Ilhan Omar are in Rust Belt Swing districts.

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi insisted that Adam Schiff was a patriot. That’s laughable. It’s more likely that I can beat Hulk Hogan in an arm-wrestling match than it would be to find a consensus that Schiff is a patriot. PS- There’s no chance I’d beat Hulk Hogan.

Democrats are simply prolonging their lie about Russia. Mueller said that he didn’t find any evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign colluded or collaborated with the Russians despite multiple attempts by the Russians.

Here’s something that Pelosi hasn’t answered. A couple months ago, she said that there wasn’t a crisis at the border. With 1,000,000 illegal aliens expected to invade the United States, how can she say that this isn’t a crisis? Only a dingbat from San Francisco could think that. It’s worth noting that San Fran Nan thinks that Kirstjen Nielsen’s figures were a lie.

Now Bill Barr’s report is a lie, too? Just how far does this conspiracy go in San Fran Nan’s mind?

This is proof that a little paranoia goes a long way. Either that or she’s flipped out and can’t be trusted. At this point, who knows? With someone from San Francisco, it could mean anything.

After this morning’s House Intel Committee meeting, it’s impossible to think that Democrats will be able to defend Committee Chairman Adam Schiff much longer.

The article opens by saying “Every Republican on the House Intelligence Committee is calling on Chairman Adam Schiff to resign Thursday, accusing the California Democrat of weaving a ‘demonstrably false’ narrative of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and ‘undermining’ the credibility of the panel.”

Literally, for years, Chairman Schiff insisted that he’d seen proof that President Trump had colluded with Russians during the 2016 election. After Mike Conaway read the GOP letter, Schiff responded “A visibly emotional Schiff, who did not know this broadside from Republicans was coming, had a strident response. At times raising his voice, he listed a litany of known and controversial interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia – including Donald Trump Jr.’s involvement in the Trump Tower meeting and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s sharing of polling data with a Russian associate. “You might think it’s OK,” Schiff said. ‘I don’t.'”

Actually, Mr. Schiff does think it’s ok — if Democrats are employing those tactics. If he thought these things were wrong, why didn’t Schiff present legislation making President Trump’s actions illegal? As chairman of a powerful committee, that legislation, at minimum, would get a hearing. Most likely, that legislation would pass the House.

At this point, there’s no reason to think this isn’t just a stunt. Watch this video and tell me he wasn’t playing to the cameras:

Speaker Pelosi issued this preposterous statement in defense of Schiff:

I’d love to know what type of drugs Ms. Pelosi is taking because they must be powerful if she thinks that a liar like Schiff is a patriot.

Tuesday night, after President Trump said that Republicans would become the party of health care, leftist pundits laughed. What’s funnier is the thought that Democrats will negotiate in good faith on health care. Health care is the Democrats’ holy grail. Without that, Democrats wouldn’t exist.

It’s important that Republicans put a serious health care plan together. What’s more important, though, is that they highlight the differences between their philosophy and the Democrats’ philosophy. Let’s recall that the ACA shoved a specific policy down our throats. If people didn’t purchase QHPs (Qualified Health Plans), they had to pay a fine, aka the individual mandate. The only difference, let’s remember, between Bronze Plan policies and Gold Plan policies was the price of the premium and the size of the deductible.

With the ACA, picking out policies that fit the individuals’ or families’ needs was forbidden. That fits with the Democrats’ philosophy of shoving unpopular policies down our throats, then using the force of government to tell families what they must do.

Republicans are capitalists. They rely on selling quality products at a reasonable price. There’s no need for individual mandates because (surprise) people actually want to buy the product. Imagine how perplexed Democrats must be when they see people buying a product because they like it. After all, Democrats have long believed that they knew best.

This philosophy isn’t limited to health care, either. It’s certainly in play with fixing our immigration system. Democrats consistently insist that there isn’t a crisis. That’s foolish:

I’d love hearing Sen. Schumer explain how letting 1,000,000+ illegal aliens into our country isn’t a crisis. This isn’t just a problem in Texas and California. It’s a crisis in every state in the union because the children of those illegal aliens go to schools. That raises property taxes for people here legally. How is that fair?

Further, let’s ask another sticky question, namely why Democrats won’t pass legislation that will actually stop illegal aliens from entering the United States? You can’t honestly say that you’re for border security if you sit idly by and watch 1,000,000 illegal aliens enter our country in 2019.

It’s time to start calling Democrats like Speaker Pelosi, Sen. Schumer and Rep. Swalwell liars. After all, that’s what they are. A minute into this interview, Rep. Swalwell insisted that he and the country “had seen evidence” of President Trump colluding with Russia. Then he said that “Mueller said that he can’t prove collusion beyond a reasonable doubt.”

That’s a bald-faced lie. Mueller said he “found no evidence” of collusion or collaboration between Russia and President Trump or anyone in his campaign. There’s a huge difference between not being able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt and finding no evidence of collusion.

It’s time for Republicans to tell Americans that Democrats aren’t interested in working in America’s best interests. That’s what the resistance movement is about. Democrats are only interested in passing legislation when Republicans give them everything they want. That isn’t patriotism. That’s the opposite of patriotism. The only way to move America forward is to defeat Democrats in droves in the House and Senate and keep President Trump in the White House.

Electing more Democrats only moves America back to the failed policies of the Democrats and President Obama.

Crisis: a dramatic emotional or circumstantial upheaval in a person’s life.

Saying that Democrats have too many drama queens is understatement. This afternoon, Judith Miller employed the Democrats’ favorite phrase while talking about President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency when she said this created a “constitutional crisis.” Judith Miller is a Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist so she should know the definition of the word crisis.

Honestly, Ms. Miller should know that a crisis only happens when there’s a life-or history-changing event. Even if the Supreme Court rules against President Trump’s declaration, it’s difficult to picture how their ruling changes the course of history.

My definition of a constitutional crisis is when the Supreme Court makes a ruling but the president refuses to obey the ruling. Pushing the envelope over a policy difference isn’t a constitutional crisis. That’s what I’d define as a constitutional question.

Democrats love throwing the constitutional crisis term around because it makes President Trump sound like a certifiable villain. When President Trump is re-elected, the American people will send the verdict that they’re tired of the Democrats’ drama queen antics.

PS- The Democrats’ other ‘drama queens are Mazie Hirono, Chuck Schumer, AOC and Speaker Pelosi.

After President Trump announced that he was declaring a national emergency, CNN and MSNBC went into full spin mode. Virtually immediately, we were told by pundits that most drugs came through ports of entry. Ditto with teenage girls that eventually get sold into child pornography, though they don’t talk much about that. The ‘pundit experts’ (I’m using that term very sarcastically) insist that the coyotes and cartels go through well-equipped ports of entry rather than through unprotected areas that aren’t fenced.

That’s insulting to our intelligence. Why should people think that these cartels and coyotes try smuggling drugs through well-protected ports of entry rather than through the porous parts of the border? Do these reporters think that the cartels want to get caught and their drugs confiscated?

These are the stories of some of the people whose lives have been forever changed by illegal aliens:

MaryAnn Mendoza tried meeting with Speaker Pelosi just a couple weeks ago. Pelosi’s staffer told Mrs. Mendoza that she wasn’t in the office. In fact, Ms. Pelosi consistently refuses to meet with Angel families. Suffice it to say that Ms. Pelosi is one of the coldest hearted bitches ever to serve in Congress. Even Jim Acosta met with Angel moms after yesterday’s presidential press conference:

The woman that Jim Acosta interviewed is Agnes Gibboney. I’ve interviewed her, too. She’s a legal immigrant who came here from Europe via South America. Acosta’s interview didn’t last long but at least he didn’t entirely avoid her like Ms. Pelosi always does.

What’s most aggravating is the fact that Ms. Pelosi totally ignores these Angel moms and that Democrats and their allies in the Agenda Media insist that there isn’t a crisis. (Yesterday, Ms. Pelosi called it a “challenge.”)

What I’m predicting is that President Trump will prevail. I’m basing that mostly off of this information:

This Vanity Fair article asks if Republicans can turn AOC into 2020 Kryptonite. It’s a fair question but it’s short-sighted. AOC is the brightest star in the Democrat galaxy at the moment but she’s far from being the only bright star that Republicans can weaponize.

Anyone that thinks that Republicans won’t weaponize Ilhan Omar is kidding themselves. And trust me, once they put together a ‘greatest hits clip of Rep. Omar, including this one, the nation will know that Democrats aren’t the moderates that they claimed to be:

That’s before Republicans weaponize Sen. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Trust me when I say that Democrats won’t understand what hit them. Right now, they’re confident that their ideas are winning the day. The media is siding with them virtually all the time, too. Pelosi has played a couple issues to her favor. What she didn’t do is side with the American people on important things. She’ll be exposed on that soon enough.

What Democrats haven’t figured out is that the nation actually wants to be safe. Democrats aren’t providing that. When Pelosi and Schumer file the lawsuits against President Trump’s wall, everyone will know that Democrats don’t give a damn about border security. Anyone thinking that Democrats care about anything other than replacing blue collar workers is dumber than AOC.

It’s safe to say that Speaker Pelosi isn’t attempting to rein in Ilhan Omar. Frankly, Omar has been on an anti-Semitic rampage since before joining Congress. This weekend, she added to her ‘collection’ with this tweet:


This says it all:


This is meaningless:

The statement issued by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic leadership team followed the latest in a string of controversial comments from the freshman lawmaker — as well as pressure from Republican leaders to speak out.

Anti-Semitism must be called out, confronted and condemned whenever it is encountered, without exception. We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate that the United States and Israel share. But Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive.

We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.

Pelosi’s statement came out days after Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitic comments. If Democrats were as supportive of Jews as they say they are, their statements would’ve been distributed minutes, not days, after Rep. Omar’s statements.
