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.

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.

I’ve paid attention to Amy Klobuchar’s Senate career with equal parts admiration and confusion. I genuinely admire her ability to get re-elected without doing anything noteworthy. Seriously, what significant legislation has she led on? Hubert Humphrey’s signature achievement was teaming with Everett Dirksen in getting the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed. Sen. Klobuchar’s signature accomplishment is virtually impossible to define. Paul Wellstone’s signature accomplishment was being the lead author of the Motor Voter bill.

One time, Klobuchar issued a statement saying that she’d worked with Roy Blunt to get additional money put into the federal budget for advertising tourism. Somehow, that pales in comparison with being the chief author of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

What does Amy Klobuchar bring to the 2020 presidential race? Will she put in place better economic policies than are in right now? That’s doubtful. The economy is already running strong. Would Sen. Klobuchar bring sensible-minded environmental policies to the Oval Office? Certainly not, especially since she’s endorsed AOC’s Green New Deal, which is really socialism on steroids.

Let’s be clear about this. Sen. Klobuchar isn’t a moderate. She’s a partisan hack. Her voting record proves it. When Democrats debated the ACA, Sen. Klobuchar could’ve been a leader and insisted on incorporating Minnesota’s MCHA provisions into the bill. She didn’t. Instead, she did what Harry Reid told her to do.

We need leaders, not partisan shills. Klobuchar is the latter, unfortunately, not the former.

The question that will determine next year’s House races is a simple one. Will Democrats finally stand up to Nancy Pelosi, especially on the border barrier? Throughout the campaign, we were told that Democrats had recruited a bunch of moderates to challenge Republicans. Thus far, we haven’t seen proof that they recruited moderates. Thus far, nobody has challenged Nancy Pelosi.

Thus far, Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn have voiced their opinions that they don’t object to funding President Trump’s wall. Thus far, they haven’t led a rebellion against Ms. Pelosi.

Byron York quotes a Republican this way:

“This is not a negotiation between Republicans and Democrats,” said one GOP lawmaker who is keeping close tabs on the process. “This is a negotiation between rank-and-file Democrats and Nancy Pelosi.”

Then there’s this:

“That is unmistakably true,” added a Republican who is taking part in the talks. “There are many reasonable voices within the Democratic conference who want to see a positive resolution here.” The speaker of the House’s “emboldened stance” — her decision to refuse to consider any funds for a border barrier — has been “very hurtful to the process,” the lawmaker added.

If so-called moderates won’t stand up to Ms. Pelosi, then they worthless.

It’s stunning to think that Democrats actually think this but a group of Democrats are imploring Speaker Pelosi to cut funding to DHS:

As Congress seeks to reach a deal on border security that President Trump will sign, a group of freshman progressive House members want their colleagues to reduce funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., are poised to their urge their colleagues to “cut” funding to DHS as Trump calls for $5.7 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Wow! As yet another caravan approaches the US-Mexican border, these Democrat nitwits are asking Nancy Pelosi to make the US less safe. How stupid can these Democrats get? (I’m reminded of the old saying that there’s no sense in making something idiot-proof; they’ll just build a better idiot.) Check out this letter:

In the third paragraph, it says “Cut, do not increase funding. A Republican-controlled Congress has already sharply increased DHS spending without clear justification. We have seen rampant spending on detention facilities for young children – reports indicate DHS is paying for-profit companies $700 a day in inhumane facilities.”

Simply put, thanks to these women and Gov. Northam and Speaker Pelosi, the Democratic Party is quickly becoming the ‘Party of Haters’. They simply aren’t showing the ability to be compassionate or thoughtful. The Democrats’ majority in the House is in jeopardy.g

During the partial government shutdown, we were told that the economy was getting hurt. It’s possible that might still be the case but this morning’s jobs report didn’t provide proof of that:

Job growth in January shattered expectations, with nonfarm payrolls surging by 304,000 despite a partial government shutdown that was the longest in history, the Labor Department reported Friday.

The unemployment rate ticked higher to 4 percent, a level where it had last been in June, a likely effect of the shutdown, according to the department. However, officials said federal workers generally were counted as employed during the period because they received pay during the survey week of Jan. 12. On balance, federal government employment actually rose by 1,000. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had expected payrolls to rise by 170,000 and the unemployment rate to hold steady at 3.9 percent.

Simply put, the doom and gloom that was forecast by Democrats didn’t materialize. Instead, Larry Kudlow’s prediction that the economy would remain strong proved true.

This is why politicians shouldn’t talk about the economy:


Now Sen. Schumer will be able to dine on a major helping of crow at next Tuesday’s SOTU Address. Earlier this week, Sen. Schumer told President Trump to stay out of the negotiations and leave the governing to the Senate. After this jobs report, which blew away the expectations by 140,000 jobs (304,000 actual vs. 165,000 forecast), Sen. Schumer should stick to what he does best — whining while wearing bad-fitting glasses.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi issued this statement:

The January jobs report holds some encouraging news, but it belies the lasting financial damage that the Trump Shutdown has inflicted on hundreds of thousands of Americans across the nation. Federal workers, many of them veterans, saw their financial security shaken, their credit ratings harmed, and their lives upended by the longest shutdown in history. And now, with families still hurting, President Trump refuses to take a second senseless shutdown off the table.

Meanwhile, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against a pay raise for federal civilian workers, refusing to respect the perseverance and patriotism of the men and women who were just furloughed or forced to work without pay. This consistently callous GOP attitude disrespects workers, dishonors our values and damages our economy.

House Democrats are working For The People, moving forward with our bold agenda to lower health costs, raise workers’ wages, and restore integrity to government. We must keep government open, and keep working to deliver an economy that works for every American, not just the wealthy and well-connected few.

What financial damage? I don’t see it. Next, getting told that Democrats “are working For The People” is a little like being told that arsonists are assisting firefighters. There just isn’t a ring of truth to it. Finally, saying that the “GOP attitude” is damaging the economy is BS. The economy isn’t damaged.

Let’s be blunt about what Virginia Democrats are trying to do. Virginia Democrats are pushing to become the nation’s first political party associated with infanticide. Of course, their defenders are saying otherwise:

Gov. Ralph Northam added gas to the fire Wednesday by describing a hypothetical situation in a radio interview where an infant who is severely deformed or unable to survive after birth could be left to die. That prompted accusations from prominent Republicans that he supports infanticide.

Democrats said their views were being deliberately mischaracterized by the GOP for political gain. “Republicans in Virginia and across the country are trying to play politics with women’s health, and that is exactly why these decisions belong between a woman and her physician, not legislators, most of whom are men,” Northam spokeswoman Ofirah Yheskel said in a statement.

The story’s language says otherwise:

Northam said that if a woman were to desire an abortion as she’s going into labor, the baby would be “resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue” between doctors and the mother, leaving open what would happen next.

The mother of what? The mother of an unviable tissue mass? (That’s what NARAL and NOW used to call unborn babies.) It’s clear that Gov. Northam is referring to the mother of a fully born baby. This woman (Monica Klein) is clearly a propagandist who isn’t interested in the truth:

Check this out:

The interview began with Carlson asking Klein for her thoughts on comments made by Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, a pediatric neurologist, that calls to reduce restrictions on late-term abortions. Klein accused Carlson of wanting to go back to a time when women resorted to back-alley abortions and used “coat hangers.”

“I think that right now, reproductive healthcare is under attack by the Republican Party. Seventy-two percent of Americans support right to choose,” Klein said. “We have [President Donald] Trump and sexual predator [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh trying to repeal Roe v. Wade and trying to take away control over our bodies. This isn’t about babies. This is about you attempting to control women’s bodies.”

Sexual predator Kavanaugh? Seriously? This Klein woman is nuttier than a peanut farm. Sen. Ben Sasse issued this response:

This is morally repugnant. In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.

I couldn’t agree more. This isn’t a matter of Roe v. Wade. It’s a matter of endorsing infanticide.

In 1996, when the Senate debated whether to override President Clinton’s veto of a bill that would’ve banned partial-birth abortion, Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, (D-NY), said this:

“It is as close to infanticide as anything I have come upon.”

It should be noted that Sen. Moynihan was staunchly pro-choice. Still, he was intellectually honest enough to call it what he thought it was. Sen. Moynihan died in 2002 or thereabouts. Moynihan’s Democratic Party died shortly thereafter.

After reading this article, the obvious question is whether Nancy Pelosi will accept this offer or if she’ll simple ignore these women. I’m betting that she’ll ignore them, even if they appear in the First Lady’s box during the SOTU Address.

A group of women whose husbands work as Border Patrol officers are inviting Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to come to McAllen, Texas, to see what’s taking place at the U.S.-Mexico border. “We would like to show you around!” Jill Demanski wrote in a Facebook post to Pelosi last Thursday, which marked the 34th day of the government shutdown. “You don’t need to bring any security detail. Our husbands/boyfriends/fiancés/wives/significant others are actually very good at their jobs, thank goodness! And since you see no threat here, I’m sure you can just make a quick flight down here alone.”

During the shutdown, I wrote President Trump with the suggestion that he include some of the Angel families in the FLOTUS box, as well as border patrol agents. I also suggested that President Trump blister Ms. Pelosi in the opening of his speech. With her sitting right behind him, its a golden opportunity to highlight the fact that she flew to Hawaii for Christmas while President Trump cancelled his Christmas plans. If he thinks that’s too harsh, he can dial it back a notch or 2.

Democrats might want to consider this:

The government shutdown is over — for now — but the political ramifications are still being sorted out. The media has been chortling that Donald Trump “caved,” and he may well have lost this battle with congressional Democrats. Their “victory,” such as it is, is to notify American voters that they are so opposed to a wall and a secure border that they were willing to keep the government shut down for four weeks to ensure it doesn’t happen.

Trump has thus exposed the Pelosi-Schumer Democrats as being hopelessly soft on illegal immigration. Some Democrats are starting to wonder whether they have dug their own political grave for 2020. This is why in recent days congressional Democrats are screaming from the rafters that they are for border security — just not the way Trump wants to do it.

The reality is far from this spin. At the start of the shutdown, the Pelosi crowd was saying that “there is no border crisis” and that “a wall is immoral.” But actions speak louder than words, and every response to illegal immigration over the past decade proves they don’t want it stopped. Democrats have instead openly encouraged illegal immigration.

There’s only one vote that matters on this or any other issue. That vote belongs to Nancy Pelosi. Democrats, including Chuck Schumer, don’t matter. That’s why I agree with President Trump that a deal won’t get reached. Pelosi is too dug in to let President Trump get credit for an important victory.

The Democrats’ new face of anti-Semitism is Rep. Ilhan Omar. According to this article, Rep. Omar once said of ISIS terrorists “The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion. We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.” Right. I’m sure that the minute we show compassion towards these terrorists that they’ll return to a life of running their small businesses and volunteering to help with the Boy Scouts.

One of the men in particular, Abdirahman Yasin Daud, was facing over 30 years in prison for trying to join the terrorist group. He admitted in court that he wasn’t trying to enter Syria on humanitarian grounds, but rather to participate in the activities of ISIS.

“I was not going there to pass out medical kits or food. I was going strictly to fight and kill on behalf of the Islamic State,” he said.

Showing compassion to confessed terrorists isn’t just not compassionate. It’s downright stupid. What’s worse is that Rep. Omar was just put on the House Foreign Relations Committee. What’s worst is her anti-Semitic tweet:
