Democrats for crime

Only 18 of the 185 Democrats House members voting on the measure yesterday supported having an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. This is further proof that Democrats favor the violent crime and drugs that ravage urban America.

We know this because ICE is rounding up some very savage criminals.

Trump survival kit for newspapers

Newspapers are struggling these days with Pulitzer-winning staffs facing layoffs. Journalists blame the Internet. I blame the newspapers. Most newspapers are out-of-touch with their readers, and refuse to do anything about it.

Let us go to the numbers. In 2016, 243 daily newspapers endorsed Hillary; 20 endorsed Donald John Trump. While she received a plurality of the vote -- 48% -- President Trump carried 30 states, the most by any candidate in 20 years.

Nickki Haley ends a 7-year war

South Sudan is 12 million people, mainly Christian, who broke away from Sudan and its Sharia Law to form their own country in 2011. Violence has plagued it since as it is embroiled in a civil war. Nikki Haley championed South Sudan's cause.

Less than a week ago, she got the United Nations to impose an arms embargo. The Washington Post was alarmed.

Americans don't care about Russia

For nearly two years now, the media has told Americans that President Trump won the presidency because of Russia. The media myth holds that President Trump colluded with Russians, who meddled in the election.

This week, the media ramped up its verbiage with cries of treason for President Trump to meet with Putin. The cable outlets put on experts who said Russian meddling is the equivalent of 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.

Boycotter faces boycott

Working in anonymity, a lefty spent the past couple of years trying to hurt conservatives financially by threatening their advertisers with boycotts.

Adweek was cool with this, giving him plenty of cheap publicity while at the same time protecting his identity -- lest his attempt to ruin people financially would hurt him financially.

Finally a victim of his attacks -- the Daily Caller -- found out who he is and exposed him: a free-lance ad writer who founded the Sleeping Giants group.

What you know about the Trump-Putin talks

"There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know," Donald Rumsfeld, February 12, 2002.

He left out one: the unknown knowns. Those are the things we know but do not realize we know.

British PM: Trump got action at NATO

England is one of five of the 28 members of NATO who keeps the promise of spending at least 2 percent of their GDP on defense. Naturally the British are upset by the treaty violators.

President Trump called out the frenemies.

British Prime Minister Theresa May applauded him.

Chatterers and Doers

Danielle Pletka is the senior vice president of foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, a tax-exempt corporation that takes money from fat-cat donors to keep pundits like her employed. They in turn provide cheap and even free content for dead-tree media outlets.

I liked her piece in the Atlantic, "The Anti-Trump Hysteria Isn’t Helping."

Why does peace scare them?

More than three decades ago, Elvis Costello and The Attractions had a little song, "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding?"

Now we know the answer.

Democrats want restaurants closed

Ellie Bufkin of the Federalist wrote, "The $15 Minimum Wage Is Wreaking Havoc On New York City Dining."

That's the plan.

Backing a man who renounced his citizenship, denouncing Trump

Politics used to end at the nation's shores. No more. Globalists slammed the president before, after, and while our duly elected president met with the leader of Russia.

Just as they did when he met the prime minister of England.

Putin: Russians gave Hillary $400 million

At his press conference with President Trump, Putin mentioned Bill Browder, an American-British businessman who deals with with Russian oligarchs. Theirs is a complicated relationship. Putin may have killed Browder's lawyer, and Browder lobbied for U.S. economic sanctions against Russia -- which President Trump made tougher.

The Democrats with bylines asked President Trump and Putin about Russian meddling.

No, this doesn't make Democrats sound like kooks

"The Obama Administration's CIA director, John Brennan, charged that President Trump's post-summit press conference with Russia President Vladimir Putin was an act of treason," Grabienews reported.

How not to negotiate

The best part of President Trump's meeting with Putin today was all the advice from the peanut gallery on negotiating with Russia from people who have not yet read, "The Art of the Deal."

Democrats and their lackeys in the Fourth Estate demanded President Trump confront Putin about Crimea, about human rights, and election meddling.

They want the filibuster back

On November 21, 2013, Harry Reid tweeted, "Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done."

Nearly five years later, Carl Hulse of the New York Times lamented that Democrats won't be able to filibuster the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in "Should Democrats Have Saved Their Filibuster for the New Court Fight?"

Winning

Good morning. Donald John Trump is your president.

"There hasn’t been a missile or rocket fired in 9 months in North Korea, there have been no nuclear tests and we got back our hostages. Who knows how it will all turn out in the end, but why isn’t the Fake News talking about these wonderful facts? Because it is FAKE NEWS!" President Trump tweeted on Sunday.

Meathead joins the Trump Schadenfreude List

Of course Meathead hates Donald Trump.

The veteran son of Carl Reiner discussed a remake of "All in the Family" with the Washington Post on October 4, 2016, and said, "We are doing it! We’re doing it every day with Donald Trump running for president! He’s Archie Bunker. They’re both from Queens. … They both have these misogynistic, racist points of view. And they spout them."

Take Trump's advice, England

Donald Trump wrote the book on negotiations. Why not? Wheeling and dealing had turned the millionaire into a billionaire. Now he has given British Prime Minister Theresa May advice on how to leave the European Union.

"He told me I should sue the EU — not go into negotiations. Sue them," May told the BBC.

Republicans are ruthless? GOOD.

John Cassidy was full of self-righteous anger in his column this week in the New Yorker, "Why It’s Right to Be Mad About Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court."

His anger was at a foundation that closed its doors 13 years ago, which was founded by a man who died 36 years ago.

Why their panties are bunched today

Every day in every way the political press is getting bitter. Here are some of thee things that wadded their unmentionables in the last 24 hours.

Jennifer Hassan of the Washington Post wrote, "‘Did Donald Trump just WALK IN FRONT OF THE QUEEN?’"
