Everyone Is Smart Except Trump


It really is quite simple. Everyone is smart except Donald J. Trump. That’s why they all are billionaires and all got elected President. Only Trump does not know what he is doing. Only Trump does not know how to negotiate with Vladimir Putin. Anderson Cooper knows how to stand up to Putin. The whole crowd […]

Moscow’s Presidential Jackasses and Bootlickers


Senator John McCain described the Trump-Putin press conference in Helsinki as “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” “No prior president,” insisted McCain, “has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.” Easy there, senator. Your knowledge of meetings between American presidents and Moscow tyrants is apparently quite limited. Plenty […]

Trump Backs Democrats Into a Far Left Corner


President Trump is pushing Democrats further left and greatly enhancing his reelection chances. The Democratic Party’s leftward momentum was already there — Sanders did well in 2016, even before Trump was Republicans’ nominee. However, Trump’s presidency has accelerated the slide and threatens to turn 2020 into a contest of ideology, rather than just on his […]

Space Weapons Trump Peace With Russia


President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have now met in a much-ballyhooed summit in Helsinki. Together, the United States and Russian Federation represent two of the most militarily powerful countries in the world. Unlike so many presstitutes in the West, I believe that President Trump should get high marks for the meeting. As […]

California’s Pointless Net Neutrality Efforts


California is moving ahead with some of the most ambitious — and pointless — net neutrality laws in the country that will only make the patchwork laws springing up around the U.S even murkier. California’s bill offers stronger language than the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) rules established under the Obama administration and repealed this spring. […]

Dems’ Big Lie About Kavanaugh


Democrats are so desperate to torpedo Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court that they’re resorting to scare tactics, telling Americans that his confirmation would put 130 million people at risk of losing their health insurance. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says Democrats can sink Kavanaugh by showing how his appointment will lead […]

Helsinki Hysteria


Let’s be honest — there was no way President Donald Trump was going to come out well from Monday’s press conference with Vladimir Putin following the one-to-one summit the two leaders conducted in the Finnish capital. That’s not an indictment of Trump per se. It’s just a fact. The indictment of a dozen officials of […]

President Trump’s War at Home and Peace With Putin


President Trump’s intelligence community leaders, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, hate their boss. President Trump is their boss. In case the president missed their contempt, on the eve of his meeting with Russia’s president Vladamir Putin, Mr. Rosenstein held a press conference announcing that 12 Russians influenced the […]

We’re All Cold Warriors Now


Nancy Pelosi wakes up every day wondering what the Russkies are up to. “Every single day,” tweeted the San Francisco-Democrat-turned-Cold Warrior, “I find myself asking: what do the Russians have on @realDonaldTrump personally, financially, & politically? The answer to that question is that only thing that explains his behavior & his refusal to stand up to […]

John Brennan Misses Communist Russia


John Brennan’s anti-Trump tweets grow more and more maniacal. His latest tweet holds that Donald Trump’s Russian diplomacy in Helsinki “rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.” That tells people all they need to know about the unseriousness of the left’s impeachment drive, not to […]
