Trump schools foreign policy experts

"Trump Has No Idea How Diplomatic Deals Work," Foreign Policy magazine declared in a headline on Thursday.

The piece was written by Ilan Goldenberg. The magazine described him as "a senior fellow and director of the Middle East Security program at the Center for a New American Security. Previously, he served as chief of staff to the special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, supporting Secretary of State John Kerry’s initiative to conduct peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians."

We already have background checks, Nancy

Nancy Pelosi went on CNN and showed her ignorance not only of firearms but gun control as well.

"I would rather pass the background check in the Congress right now, today, than win the election because it would save lives," she said.

ABC seethes over Trump presidency

Two can play this game, ABC.

Its headline read, "Trump seethes over Russia probe, calls for end to SPYGATE."

How does ABC know he seethed? The story below the seething headline was by three Associated Press reporters. They did not say anything about any seething.

Dems think they can ride Mueller to victory

A Democratic pollster has the perfect plan for Democrats to win back the House and the Senate: run on the Mueller witch hunt investigation.

"There is a real information and education challenge for progressives to make sure more people learn that there is a 'there' there. Does it mean it's going to be the focus of an entire ad campaign? Probably not. But there are real arguments that are impactful to voters and ways we can win this argument if we engage," Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson told Caitlin Huey-Burns of Real Clear Politics.

Morgan Freeman feels the Trump Effect

Morgan Freeman just earned his place in the Trump Effect Hall of Shame, which houses those who were foolish enough to get in a feud with Donald Trump.

Such feuds are senseless because nothing short of a "hold my beer" moment puts a person more at risk. And what do you gain? Nothing.

Trump may punish home countries of illegal aliens

The Mexican and Central American invasion of the United States must end. They are not sending us their best. They are sending thugs, drug lords, and welfare queens. As if we need more of them.

President Trump has a new weapon to fight back. It's spelled money.

Trump to Kim Jong Un: No summit

"Know when to walk away from the table," Donald Trump tweeted on July 27, 2011. He cited his masterpiece, "The Art of the Deal."

Today, President Trump walked away from the Singapore Summit with Kim Jong Un.

Thanks to Trump, income is the highest ever

In real terms, household income has never been higher.

Adjusted for inflation, household income has never been higher.

After eight long years, the Great Recession is over.

35,000 more jobs. Obama hardest hit

In 2016, when Donald John Trump said he would keep Carrier from moving a furnace factory from Indiana to Mexico, Barack Obama smirked. At a town hall meeting in Indianapolis, Obama taunted Trump when asked about the loss of hundreds of jobs at Carrier.

Elon Musk trumps the press

Andrew J. Hawkins, a journalist of some sort, has newspaper-thin skin. After Elon Musk took on his critics, Hawkins took on Musk.

Break out the popcorn and butter-flavored salt.

NFL may penalize kneeling

The National Football League wants patriotic Americans back.

Maybe.

The Hill reported, "NFL owners on Tuesday mulled the possibility of assessing an in-game penalty against teams whose players kneel in protest during the national anthem."

Equal pay means equal work



Trump let the Left outsmart itself

"NYT Columnist Worries Mueller Investigation Actually Helping Trump," wrote Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller.

Once again, the Left has been too clever by half in dealing with The Donald.

Blankenship jumps Republican ship, and I thank him

After finishing third in the Republican primary for a West Virginia U.S. Senate seat, Don Blankenship is switching parties to join the Constitution Party in an effort to stop Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

Press hypocrisy of the day

Obama wiretapped President Donald Trump.

The press does not care.

Jim Carrey joins the Trump Effect Hall of Shame

"What has happened to Jim Carrey? Once a revered comedian with a big fan base, Carrey hasn’t made a good movie in 10 years, and the ones he’s in have been box-office bombs," Rex Reed wrote.

The short answer is Donald Trump. Carrey foolishly began a one-sided feud with President Trump. Not only did Carrey fail to attract Trump's attention, but he lost what little audience he had left.

Trump's tariffs worked

In March, when President Donald John Trump threatened to impose tariffs, all the liberals in Washington (including those at the Weekly Standard and National Review) screamed Trade War.

As if we were not already in one.

I wrote, "Tariffs are a bargaining chip,"

Blue wave? Republicans lead one generic poll

On December 20, Democrats were on a high. They had just swiped a Senate seat in Alabama and they enjoyed a 13-point lead in the Real Clear Politics average of generic congressional ballot polls.

Two days later, President Trump signed the tax cuts into law -- and it has been downhill for Democrats ever since. Not one of them voted for tax relief.

Trump leads the world

"Paraguay opened its Israel embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, the second country to follow the United States in making the politically sensitive move from Tel Aviv," France 24 reported.

This is global leadership. Clinton said he would move the embassy to the capital of Israel. Bush 43 said he would move the embassy to the capital of Israel. Obama said he would move the embassy to the capital of Israel.

Trump was right in 1987, and is still right today.
