The pile of links just keeps a-gettin’ higher. I may have to break this into two different posts. That’s okay, DW isn’t around and there’s nothing on my busy social calendar today. Lucky you.
THE PRESIDENT SPOKE AT THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER AND YESTERDAY ADDRESSED A PACKED HOUSE OF 9,000 AT THE NRA CONVENTION
Worshippers Filled U.S. Capitol to Mark National Day of Prayer
Here I am catching up AGAIN after being sick AGAIN. I tell ya … I take a few days off to be sick and my kitchen and my email both get totally out of control! Okay, so it was more like a week. But still.
SYRIA: It took a Republican president to actually enforce the previous Democrat president’s “red line.”

Remember way back when global warming pundits assured us that snow would be a distant memory by now? The latest “official word” from them now is that global warming is responsible for all the snow. Heh. Photo: Rose Garden March 21, 2018.
ECONOMY: Pew Research Center says 53% of Americans currently rate the economy good to excellent. This is the highest in some 18 years.
PROTECTING CRIMINALS: U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi believes San Franciscans are all SAFER because of the city’s sanctuary policy. Last month, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned illegals that ICE was about to do a round-up in the bay area, resulting in 800 illegals avoiding arrest. Since then, three have already gone on to commit new crimes.
IT WAS OKAY WHEN BARACK DID IT: Lefties have been shrieking about President Trump calling Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on winning re-election. The last time Putin won re-election, then-President Obama called to congratulate him.
STUPID RUNS IN THE FAMILY: Hunter Biden, the younger son of Vice President Joe Biden, failed a drug test for cocaine, one month after his commissioning into the Navy Reserve. He has been discharged.
PRO-ABORTS LOSE: Democrat voters in Illinois’ third congressional district narrowly re-elected pro-life Democrat Lipinski 51-49. This, despite the millions of dollars pro-abortion groups — like NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and Emily’s List — poured into his radical pro-abortion opponent’s campaign.
SEX CRIMES: The U.S. Senate voted 97-2 to approve a bill to crack down on sex trafficking. The legislation makes it a crime to operate a facility such as an internet platform with the intent to promote prostitution.
INFRASTRUCTURE: Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH) explains that President Trump’s infrastructure plan “takes on the mountain of regulatory hurdles that slow down the projects critical for improving and maintaining our national infrastructure.”
CANADIANS USED TO BE SO NICE: Throughout Ontario, Canada’s public school, child sex ed curriculum, there is no mention of love or marriage. Instead the curriculum teaches …
… 1st graders to “identify body parts, including genitalia (e.g., penis, testicles, vagina, vulva)”;
… 3rd graders that gender is fluid and same sex parents are normal;
… 5th graders that gender identity and sexual orientation are not under one’s control;
… 6th graders how to masturbate and encouraging them to try it;
… 7th graders about anal and oral sex and that anything that “gives you pleasure” is okay;
… 8th graders to make a ‘personal plan’ for their sexual activity.
Imagine what the approval numbers would look like if the media had simply reported the news.
The Democrats treated George W. Bush shabbily for eight years because they never got over his refusing to let Al Gore steal the 2000 election. Their souls are empty, so they lash out at anything that doesn’t comport with whatever beliefs they have. But there has never been the volume of visceral rage against a single human being that they display against Donald Trump. Their behavior last night was nothing short of reprehensible. They refused to stand for any reason, including for our troops.
FIRST THE GOOD:
President Trump Delivers First State of Union Address
Trump Channels Reagan In Call To Make America Great Again
“Freedom stands tall over one more monument: this one. This Capitol, this living monument to the American people. A people whose heroes live not only in the past, but all around us — defending hope, pride, and the American way.”
The president ended his speech with calls for bipartisanship saying, “I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve.”
Poll: 75% Approve of Trump’s State of the Union Address
An “instant” poll of viewers who watched President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night found that 75% approved of the speech, while only 25% disapproved — a 50-point margin in the president’s favor.
The Shabby, Sophomoric Behavior of Democrats at the SOTU
It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump’s SOTU speech. They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any different? Our Democrats behave exactly like the most racist, intolerant people on the planet, and in their own Capitol.
New Liberal SOTU Rule: Don’t Call President Trump’s Speech Presidential
A New York University journalism professor, a New York Times columnist, and others preemptively attacked any pundits who may praise President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address as presidential.
NYU professor Jay Rosen mocked the tendency to call Trump’s speeches “presidential,” and called out the Washington Post for a story indicating the speech could help reset his presidency.
Black Caucus Sits on Butts, Refuses to Applaud Record Low Black Unemployment Rates at SOTU
THESE GANGSTERS COULDN’T CARE LESS ABOUT BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT. KEEP ‘EM POOR, IGNORANT, AND DOING AS YOU COMMAND THEM WITH BLIND LOYALTY.
Why Didn’t Democrats Stand – Or Even Clap – For This SOTU Line?
It’s typical for lawmakers to resist clapping during the president’s annual State of the Union address when he mentions policies they oppose. But, when the president touches on issues that are clearly bipartisan, both sides of the aisle usually acknowledge it with at least a golf clap. For instance, supporting our military, investing in infrastructure, combating the opioid crisis, and a budding economy can typically be considered bipartisan issues.
CNN Cuomo on SOTU: “I’ve Never Seen Nancy Pelosi’s Face Look Like That”
When even Chris Cuomo mocks your moue . . .
On CNN this morning, commenting on Nancy Pelosi’s sour expression during President Trump’s State of the Union speech, Cuomo said:
“I’ve never seen Nancy Pelosi’s face look like that.”
Rep. Luis Gutierrez walks out of Trump’s State of the Union as progressives write off bipartisanship permanently
Historically, progressives have championed a permanent solution for the so-called “Dreamers,” immigrants brought to this country illegally as children. But they are already balking at any amnesty deal.
Generally, progressives are willing to negotiate at least at the margins of a Republican agenda. But they see anything less than a complete and total scorched-earth strategy as unacceptable.
Shortly after exiting the chamber, Gutierrez summarized his position. “I was hoping to get through my life without having to witness an outwardly, explicitly racist American President,” he wrote in a statement. “My luck ran out.”
With that, Gutierrez managed to do something normally quite impossible. By writing off compromise completely, barely a week after the government shutdown, the progressive has made Trump look like the good-faith, honest adult in the room

Here Are The Most Memorable Reactions To President Donald Trump’s State Of The Union Address | CNBC
MSNBC Outraged at Trump Telling Story of Otto Warmbier’s Death: ‘He Wants a War With North Korea’
MSNBC’s Joy Reid Complains About Trump Invoking Church, Family, Military in SOTU Address
MSNBC host Joy Reid took to Twitter after the State of the Union address on Tuesday to attack President Donald Trump for invoking institutions such as family and the military in his speech.
Reid cited Trump’s themes of church, family, police, military, and the national anthem as “tropes of 1950s-era nationalism” that were intended to invoke nostalgia in his supporters.
The Washington Post changed its front page headline for President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday evening after liberals erupted in anger.
The paper tweeted roughly one hour before Trump’s speech a picture of the Wednesday edition, featuring a front page headline that read, “A call for bipartisanship.”
Readers responded with vitriol, calling out the newspaper for printing a headline it “will regret tomorrow,” along with a host of other negative comments.
No commentary anymore. There’s no point.
Democrats Lose Big Time As Shutdown Ends
They tried to shoehorn a big immigration amnesty into stopgap funding and paid a heavy price.
Democrats got essentially nothing in exchange for voting to re-open the government, which made the Republican triumph even sweeter. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made an unenforceable promise to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to bring an immigration bill to the floor – he said merely that it was his intention to do so – if a compromise cannot be made regarding the illegals before government funding runs out again.
Never play Chicken with the Trump Train
This embarrassing game of Chicken shows that — for the first time in decades — a Republican won the Narrative War.
Republicans never win the Narrative War.
And that’s why Schumer and the Dems were so certain they’d succeed at hanging this shutdown around Donald Trump’s neck.
But they failed miserably.
No. Trump went much further than that. He successfully labeled this shutdown as Democrats choosing illegal aliens over American citizens.
And because of that, losing this game of Chicken isn’t just a minor setback for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats.
They went all-in for non-citizens over Americans. And now, no matter what they do, Trump has succeeded in labeling them the Party of Illegals.
Trump releases statement on Democrats coming to their senses over government shutdown
Trump just released a statement to the press on the government shutdown, praising Democrats for ‘coming to their senses’ to fund the government:
In a campaign email, the message from the Trump campaign is that “Democrats CAVED”:
Democrats caved on the shutdown, and they’re admitting it
🔥Kamala Harris on McConnell: “I don’t believe he made any commitment whatsoever and I think it would be foolhardy to believe he made a commitment.”
Cc: Democratic leadership
And here’s a statement from OFA, the political offshoot of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns: “Let’s be clear: This stopgap measure is not a solution. It’s merely a band-aid for a self-inflicted wound that remains untreated.” Another liberal group, CREDO Action, offered this:
Fun: MoveOn rips Dems for “bad, outrageous” shutdown deal
“This is a bad, outrageous deal. Trump and Republicans in Congress stood with their anti-immigrant nativist base, and too many Democrats backed down, abandoned Dreamers, and failed to fight for their values.”
Lotta anger out there!
We Are Outraged:’ Illegal Alien Activists Turn on Democrats After Amnesty-or-Shutdown Fail
In a protest outside of the U.S Capitol, open borders advocates and illegal alien activists slammed Democrats after they originally shut down the federal government to push amnesty for illegal aliens, but then caved to President Trump and voted to reopen the government without an amnesty attached to the funding bill.
Illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with the open borders group “United We Dream,” which is funded by globalist billionaire George Soros, said they were entitled to an immediate amnesty before the federal government was reopened.
Fresh Polling: Shutting Down Government Over DACA Was Not Good For Democrats
“Would you favor or oppose Democrats voting to shut the government down if the continuing budget resolution does not include restoring so-called DACA work permits for undocumented immigrants brought here illegally by their parents?”
58% responded with “oppose.”
Polling also showed a majority back White House priorities on ending the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, eliminating chain migration and building a border wall.
Nancy Pelosi to Democrats: Shutdown deal does not ‘diminish our leverage’
“While today’s vote ends the Trump Shutdown, it does not diminish our leverage,” Pelosi said in a “Dear Democratic Colleague” note to her caucus members. “While Members may vote differently on this bill, we are unified in our determination to meet the needs of the American people with our Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.”
[CtH: BWAHAHAHAHA! Delusional Nancy opens her gob again. TRUMP is MEETING every one of those needs already … without any support whatsoever from the Democrats OR the MSM.]
CNN Asks Wasserman Schultz What Was The Point Of The Shutdown — Her Answer Is Stunning
When Schultz was asked point-blank what the point of the government shutdown was her response left Baldwin’s jaw on the floor. “What one thing did [Schumer] get, you know, from Republicans, to justify shutting down the government in the first place?” Baldwin asked.
DWS replied: “The one thing, I would say, that [Schumer] did get is the potential for momentum.”
[CtH; What on Earth does “potential for momentum” mean?]
CNN Host Incredulous When Wasserman Schultz Says Schumer Got ‘Potential for Momentum’ Out of Shutdown Deal
[DWS: “We’re five months down the road and we still don’t have a budget.” Wow. And how many YEARS did Democrats REFUSE to pass a budget?! I’d say “unbelievable” but this is a Democrat.]
CNN’s John King: ‘Why Did They Shut Down the Government in the First Place?’
CBS on Democrats Ending Shutdown: ‘This Is a White House Victory’
Paul Ryan: ‘This Shutdown Did Not Need to Happen’
Blumenthal Doesn’t Deny Schumer ‘Caved’ on Govt. Shutdown, Says He Took ‘Responsible’ Action
[CtH: In other words, the shut down was irresponsible. Well, duh.]
Media Agrees: Democrats Lost the Government Shutdown Fight
A complicit media is absolutely vital to the fortunes of the democrat party. Being an inveterate liar is requisite to have success as a liberal. If they told the truth they’d never get elected. The secret is to make sure their voting base never hears about the crimes they commit. As informed, intelligent people we see what’s going on, but the propaganda is not aimed at us because they know we’re not buying what they’re selling. The liberal indoctrination centers sometimes referred to as schools make certain young minds are taught to swallow the socialist ideology whole without questioning it. These are the future of the socialist party.
The hatred for President Trump runs even deeper than it did for the eunuch George W. Bush, who has now been forgiven by the left since the Bush clan has joined in their sport of bashing Trump. They will never give Trump credit for anything. Were it not for Twitter, they would have destroyed him before the election.
Turns out Trump didn’t ruin America’s economy
Foreign tourism to New York City is set to rise 3.6 percent this year — defying yet another of the many doomsday predictions about Donald Trump’s presidency.
Finance expert Steve Rattner foresaw “a market crash of historic proportions” under a President Trump.
More recently, Trump’s cutbacks of money to help folks sign up for ObamaCare brought warnings that enrollment would surely plummet. Hah! Over the first few days of open enrollment this year, a record number of people signed up, The Hill reported Tuesday.
Extreme Language From Dems A Sign They Know Tax Plan Would Be Big Win For GOP
Stuart Varney on FBN said the Dems are in disarray and their extreme language is an indication of a last ditch desperation effort to stop the Republican tax reform plan, because D’s know it would be a huge victory for the GOP and for Trump.
No Regrets: Trump Backers Say They’d Vote For Him Again, One Year After Election
A POLITICO/Morning Consult poll reports that 82 percent of Trump voters surveyed would vote for him again if they could.
[CtH: I’d like to see a poll of people like me, who against Hillary more than for Trump. I was tickled when I heard she and Slick Willie had lost. Now that I’ve seen President Trump and his gracious wife in action, I am tickled they won.]
Democratic Congressional Candidate Arrested for Stalking in New Mexico
A Democrat running for Congress in New Mexico’s second district was found and arrested at an apartment complex in Albuquerque on Friday, nearly two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for him. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking a woman in 2007. His campaign has so far not released a statement or responded to requests for comment.
[CtH: This guy was CONVICTED of stalking a woman in 2007?! Way to go, all you Democrats of New Mexico who nominated this turd. I’m so impressed by this further evidence of your unwavering commitment to disrespecting and preying on women. I’m not gonna hold my breath waiting on the Slime Stream Media to yammer on about what a loathsome pig he is or for RINO John McCain to proclaim how he should step down, so New Mexicans can vote for “a candidate they can be proud of.”]
Trump Prepared To Expel Special Interest From Judicial Confirmation Process
The White House may soon advise President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees not to cooperate with the American Bar Association’s independent vetting process, further weakening the dominant role the interest group has played for decades in judicial confirmations.
The ABA has rated four of Trump’s district court nominees “unqualified” in recent months. One such nominee was Holly Teeter, a federal prosecutor with slightly less than the 12 years experience traditionally required by the ABA.
Trump’s Top Labor Prosecutor Could Unravel Obama-Era Gains
NLRB General Counsel Peter Robb will replace career union attorney Richard Griffin as top labor enforcer. Management-side attorneys concede that Griffin was an effective prosecutor from an ideological standpoint.
Steve Bernstein, an employer labor attorney at Fisher Phillips, said Griffin “achieved an awful lot” during his four-year tenure. Lotito called Griffin’s knowledge of the law “first rate,” but said his legacy on the board will be as “one of the most progressive general counsels in the history of the agency.”
Trump triumphs, media changes subjects
President Trump returned from one of the longest and most successful overseas trips by a president since President Reagan returned from Reykjavik without giving Gorbachev a treaty in 1986.
So what dominated the Sunday morning talk shows on “national news” outlets? Judge Roy Moore.
Trump’s Asia Trip Bolsters ‘America First’
The president projects American power after eight years of pathetic servility.
“This is a very different administration than the United States has had in the past. Do not underestimate us. Do not try us. We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty,” Trump said.
“The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger,” the president said as if addressing Kim. “Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face. North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned. It is a hell that no person deserves.”
In that country, “leaders imprison their people under the banner of tyranny, fascism, and oppression,” he added.
Harry Reid Says He ‘Did What Was Necessary’ By Lying About Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns
The caller asked Reid if he thought that “the brazen lie he told about Mitt Romney not pay his taxes has in anyway contributed to the fake news debate that we now find ourselves in.”
Reid, who is leaving the Senate next month, denied the accusation. But he offered up a flimsy and fact-devoid defense of those 2012 claims.
“First of all, there were no brazen lies. What I said is the truth,” he maintained.
“There’s no brazen lies. I did what was necessary,” he said a few moments later.
Trump is the Next Target after Roy Moore
There’s a reason why President Trump says that the fate of Senate candidate Roy Moore will depend on whether the charges against him are proven to be true. Trump knows that if they get rid of Moore, using charges that obviously cannot be proven, he’s their next target. Sex-gate will follow Russia-gate. In this atmosphere, women charging sexual harassment are easy to find, even if their charges cannot be proven. The men are assumed to be guilty as charged.
Biden: The Rust Belt loves me more than Trump
[CtH: Yeah, and all the women and girls you have groped over the years loved you too.]
Washington Post Offered Money To Roy Moore Accusers While Getting “Tips” From Mitch McConnell
In possibly the biggest example yet that it’s the mainstream press and not the so called “fringe sites” who really produce the most actual fake news. New evidence has now come to light that the Washington Post’s now infamous hit piece on Judge Roy Moore might in fact be a complete fabrication, or at least a carefully planned exaggeration of the truth.
Three UCLA Basketball Players En Route To USA After Trump Asked Chinese President To Assist With Case
THESE THREE THUGS WOULD BE FACING TIME IN A CHINESE PRISON HAD TRUMP NOT INTERVENED. THINK THEY’LL SHOW ANY GRATITUDE TOWARD THE PRESIDENT? DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH.
The three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting while in China are on a flight back to the United States following President Donald Trump’s personal appeal to Chinese President Xi Jinping to assist with the case.
