Trump's reverse Nixon on China

Many readers are puzzled to see the left so upset with President Trump for seeking normal diplomatic relations with Russua

Communist John Brennan, who headed America's spies under Barack Obama, called it treason. In his eyes, it is because President Trump is using Russia as a counterweight to Red China, just as Richard Nixon used Red China as a counterweight to the Soviet Union.

The election meltdown has not ended

It's been nearly two years since Hillary lost. Let's look on Twitter to see how her supporters are handling the loss.

Even socialists cringe at Russia, Russia, Russia

A reader who uses a pseudonym on Twitter hipped me to this column by Caitlin Johnstone, an Aussie "Bogan socialist. Anarcho-psychonaut. Guerilla poet. Utopia prepper." Apparently she is as unfamiliar with the comma as I am unfamiliar with Bogan socialist.

From half a world away, she looks at America and laughs.

I laugh with her.

How the press disgraces the centennial of Armistice Day

The nervous breakdown by the press following America's election of President Donald John Trump continues as reporters belittle the parade in Washington commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I as "Trump's Parade."

I suppose the Bicentennial was just Ford's Parade.

NYT asks how dare the National Enquirer act like us?

"Tabloid Company, Aiding Trump Campaign, May Have Crossed Line Into Politics," the New York Times headline said today.

I laughed so hard, I almost could not read the story by Jim Rutenberg and Ben Protess.

Never Trump is also Never Free Speech

Disney's decision to fire director James Gunn over years of weird tweets drew the wrath of David French, a lawyer and National Review writer.

But French cheered when Disney fired Roseanne Barr for one very bad tweet.

Trump had a good week

My next book really will be "The Best 8 Years of Our Lives." So far, that is all I have written. I will get around to writing the book sometime in 2025. Right now, I am savoring each moment, and watching the grand restoration of the United States of America take place.

A column by Piers Morgan in the Daily Mail clarified the moment we are in.

A Guardian of the Galaxy joins the Trump Schadenfreude List

Today we add to the Trump Schadenfreude List one James Gunn, director of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" series of movies from comic books.

Treating Trump supporters as subhuman

The fervid and fetid attacks on President Trump and the American people who elected him took another strange turn this week when our attackers wet themselves crying treason because President Trump was diplomatic with Putin.

Jeff Flake, easily the most unpopular member of the Senate, said President Trump was treasonous "by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy."

Mueller's meddling in the next election

"Robert Mueller offers Tony Podesta immunity to testify against Paul Manafort" is the most horrifying story of the day,

Mueller, a bully with a badge, is now judge, jury, and executioner of presidential politics.

Democrats cannot get their Putin story straight

I know it is early in the day, but I trust no one will top the idiocy of this statement from Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell of California concerning President Trump inviting Putin to the White House: "When your home is burglarized, you don’t invite the burglar over to dinner."

He does realize that Barack Obama invited Putin to the White House in 2012.

Putin declined the invitation.

Judge tosses NYC's global warming lawsuit

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio thought he could pick up a few billion bucks for the City Whose Tax Collectors Never Sleep by filing a nuisance lawsuit over global warming against five oil companies.

U.S. District Judge John Keenan stopped this nonsense today.

The last time I believed Mueller, we wound up in the Iraq War

Fool me twice, shame on me.

Right?

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.
