As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Pelosi Announces Impeachment, Pretending It’s Just What Alexander Hamilton Wanted

I am so tired of hearing the Democrats invoking the Founding Fathers in their impeachment of President Trump. The Democrats’ policies, ethics, attitudes and even use of the Constitution are so far from what the Founders envisioned for this country, it disgusts me to hear them invoked. Especially for such a partisan exercise. Anyway, Pelosi… Continue Reading

Pelosi Melts Down When Asked If She Hates Trump

Former Fox News reporter James Rosen asked Nancy Pelosi if she hates President Trump. Which is kind of a silly question, but anyway, it provoked her, as intended. “I don’t hate anyone,” Pelosi said. “We don’t hate anyone.” She then continues: “It has nothing to do with that. I think the president is a coward… Continue Reading

White House Briefly Evacuated for a “Fire Drill”

The alarms went off as the House Judiciary Committee considers impeachment. I suspect it was an accident. Never heard of a fire drill at the WH before. Here is some video of the press pretending to be calm while exiting the building. They didn’t know it was a drill, or an error. FacebookTwitterRedditLinkedinemail Continue Reading

Trump Ditches Press Conference and Headed Home After NATO Allies Mock Him

European leaders, led by Canada’s Justin Trudeau, laughed behind his back. Bad idea. According to the Washington Examiner: President Trump cut short his attendance at a NATO leaders’ meeting on Wednesday afternoon, canceling a planned press conference after other leaders were caught on camera giggling about his extended question-and-answer sessions with journalists. Instead, Trump tweeted that after… Continue Reading

Trump Just Using Impeachment Hearings as a Warm-Up Act for Reelection

President Trump is playing the Democrats quite nicely, and the result is that the hearings have only solidified his support. Democrats have moved the needle not one bit, and things are only going to get worse for them. From an opinion piece I have running today on the NBC News website: The public phase of the… Continue Reading

Trump: Adam Schiff is “a Deranged Human Being”

Also a “maniac” and a “very sick man.” I’ll bet he knows this pisses Schiff off a lot. I think it does. Schiff seems like one of those prickly, uptight sorts who don’t like to be questioned too much. One of Trump’s great talents is knowing exactly how to get under someone’s skin. FacebookTwitterRedditLinkedinemail Continue Reading

Trump Suggests He Will Inflict Tariffs on NATO Allies Who Don’t Pay Up

It’s incredible that the allies we protect have been able to get away with not paying their fair share for defense while they spend instead on their elaborate socialist schemes. Meantime, American taxpayers are stuck with the bill. President Trump is making sure that doesn’t happen. And there’s another principle involved in addition to fairness.… Continue Reading

Washington Post Critic: Melania Trump Coat “Looks Ridiculous”

At the Washington Post, even the fashion critic, Robin Givhan, is politicized. From her piece today: First lady Melania Trump unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations in a gauzy video in which she strolls through the public rooms marveling at their holiday luster. She gingerly adjusts a single red rose in a lush floral… Continue Reading
