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.




Hey, Fox News Research. Do a little research.

And the last time the Democrats won a midterm was?

2006.

Fact check: Hillary is 100% correct

"Right now we're living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy. No, there are not tanks in the streets, but what's happening right now goes to the heart of who we are as a nation, and I say this not as a Democrat who lost an election but as an American afraid of losing a country."  -- Hillary Clinton to Yale graduates.

She is absolutely correct. The refusal by Barack Obama to be a Man and peacefully hand over power to the duly elected president of the United States is an unprecedented attack on our nation's beliefs, our rights as citizens, and our way of life.

Russian dossier shows our spies are lousy

Bumbling Bob Mueller's witch hunt is showing the federal system of spies and prosecutors is incompetent. Among other things, Mueller indicted a company that did not exist during the time covered in the indictment. I realize that prosecutors can indict a ham sandwich, but he indicted an imaginary one.

While the abuse of power is an outrage, the level of incompetence of America's spies and the FBI is stunning.

Countries that matter love Trump

Following The American people electing Donald John Trump president, expatriate academic Brian Klaas has been on a tear, writing three books ("The Despot's Accomplice: How the West is Aiding and Abetting the Decline of Democracy," "The Despot's Apprentice: Donald Trump's Attack on Democracy," and "How to Rig an Election").

His market is the liberal who refuses to accept the election results.

Time magazine is the Bamboo Lounge in "Goodfellas"

As I read the New York Times tribute to the collapse of Time magazine ("An oral history of how the pre-eminent media organization of the 20th century ended up on the scrap heap") I thought about the Bamboo Lounge in the movie "Goodfellas," a ruthless depiction of the ruthlessness of the mafioso.

For all their talk about family and loyalty, the gangsters turn on one another in the blink of an eye.

Why would West Virginians want an independent senator?

Democrat Joe Manchin told voters he would protect our Second Amendment rights if we elected him to the Senate. Once he got in, he proposed more gun control.

How Obama became the first communist president

The use of the state to spy on and infiltrate the campaign of a political opponent is the final proof of the truth that we have averted our eyes from for the last 14 years.

Barack Obama is a communist. Mild compared to Castro or Mao, but nevertheless a believer in state control of everything.

China is Trumped

Add getting a better trade deal from China to the list of President Donald Trump's promises made, promises kept.

Five days after opening the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem -- another promise kept -- China said it will “significantly increase purchases of United States goods and services” and “help support growth and employment in the United States.”
