TRUMP ECONOMY: President Donald Trump has negotiated the price of the F-35 fighter jet from $102 million in the last Obama negotiation to under $90 million in the second Trump negotiation.
Even if you don’t factor in inflation, reducing the cost of each fighter from over $100 million to less that $80 million halfway through his first term is a major accomplishment for Trump.
JUDGE J: The Left HATES Donald J. Trump. [6:55 and 6:54]
FIGHTING FOR THE HEART and SOUL of the NATION: Former Oakland Raider Burgess Owens testified before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties today on the subject of slavery reparations. This is worth your time! [5:43]
SPYGATE: I reported on this yesterday, but I like watching Lou Dobbs and Tom Fitton, so here it is again. [5:10]
BORDER CAMPS: Art Arthur, a resident fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and former immigration judge, refuted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) characterization of U.S. migrant detention facilities as “concentration camps,” calling her comments “offensive” and noting that Democrats had no objection to these same facilities when the Obama administration used them.
What is truly “reprehensible,” Arthur said, is the refusal of Congressional Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez to provide the humanitarian funding requested by the Trump administration to alleviate the suffering of migrant children and families.
YAD VASHEM: Wins Tweet of the Day! – Will AOC concede or will she double down and try to tell us that the Esquire article she linked to in her original tweet is more accurate than Yad Vashem? I wouldn’t put money on this either way.

HILLARY: A Broadway production based loosely on Hillary Clinton’s first failed presidential run back in 2008 is closing down a month early due to deplorable ticket sales. The play has netted an average of about $7,000 per show.
I just checked and found most seats for the last few performances are selling for $129 each. If that’s been true all along, then there were an average of only 54 of the 800 available seats filled per performance. Deplorable indeed!
TRANNIES vs TITLE IX: Three girls from a Connecticut high school have filed a federal discrimination complaint against a statewide policy on transgender athletes. The girls say that these policies caused them to miss out on top finishes in races that could have led to college scholarships.
“Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field. Women fought long and hard to earn the equal athletic opportunities that Title IX provides. Allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women under this law. We shouldn’t force these young women to be spectators in their own sports.” – Christiana Holcomb, legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the girls
