Trump, the Lunch Pail Billionaire, has Driven the Left Mad

It was August 1, 1988. Remember the date? Maybe not, unless you’re a common sense, right thinking conservative. It was the first day of Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio talk show. And it was the beginning of the new conservative movement. One that the everyman, like you and me, could be part of.

The show took off like a rocket. No one had ever heard such things, particularly from the boring, deadpan, AM dial.

And why did it become an instant an enduring success? First was the shock factor. People, me included, couldn’t believe what we were hearing. “Can you believe what that Limbaugh guy said on the radio,” was a common refrain.

And second, and more importantly, Rush gave voice to what we were thinking. It’s just that simple. Finally there was a guy in the media who actually thought like us – believed what we did, and was not shy about expressing it. In a sea of liberalism from the left and measured politispeak from the right, Limbaugh was breath of fresh air. read more

Another Trump Derangement Mishap by the Left

I know it’s not charitable, but there’s a certain amount of satisfaction obtained by seeing radical leftists in the main stream media twist in the wind as they scramble about trying to cover up yet another Trump Derangement mishap. Their hatred of Trump is so blinding that they’ve completely abandoned any fact-checking in order to advance the anti-Trump train down the tracks. Thankfully for us, the more they jump the gun, the more the voting public sees what disingenuous liars they are, and how they really are just the media arm of the democrat party.

The Left Is Becoming More Desperate

from the American Thinker:

Progressives on the Brink

The Trump era has exposed the dark, vindictive, and oppressive side of liberalism, but that side has always existed.  “Progressives,” as they prefer to be known, have a long history of extremism going back to Woodrow Wilson’s Sedition Act of 1918 and FDR’s many power-grabbing activities, including the 1937 attempt to pack the Supreme Court.  Progressive thinking, because it attempts to impose an extreme vision of society on a public that resists its measures, is by its very nature authoritarian, antidemocratic, and elitist.  Liberalism is not the “party of the people,” as it has long claimed to be: it is, rather, a despotic philosophy that because of its intention of imposing “advanced” thinking on the masses can govern only through deceit and force.

Iran Doing Everything it can to Keep the Cash Rolling In

from The Washington Free Beacon:

Iran in Panic Mode, Scrambles to Save Nuclear Deal

The Iranian ruling regime is racing to save the landmark nuclear deal after President Donald Trump bucked European powers and walked away from the agreement with a vow to reimpose a package of harsh sanctions on the Islamic Republic, according to U.S. officials and regional experts who say the hardline regime is scared about losing the sweetheart deal.

Leading Iranian officials have been locked in tense meetings with European countries and former U.S. officials to ensure they continue to uphold the deal and keep doing business with the Islamic Republic.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, one of the country’s lead negotiators, held a series of meetings with European Union countries on Tuesday to plead with them about saving the deal and ensuring Tehran remains open for business as the United States tees up a package of sanctions that could cripple Iran’s already ailing economy. read more

Another Promise Kept – Iran Deal Scrapped

Imagine that – a president, or frankly any politician save for a select few, who makes

promises on the campaign trail and has the nerve to actually do what he said and keep them. What a novelty! Too bad it actually is. But for president Trump, it seems to be business as usually – make a campaign promise and “make it so Number One.” Another promise kept.

Video Podcast – Let’s talk Korea

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The left is just so predictable. They just cannot see fit to giving even a modicum of credit to president Trump for anything.

So let’s talk Korea. The Korean War began on June 25, 1950. It is the longest war America will ever be involved in. That’s 68 years. Some might even say it’s the longest of any kind in modern history. This would be incorrectamundo. Israel has been at war with the Muslims since its founding in 1948.

And then along comes Trump. He doesn’t understand that you’re not allowed to be tough on your adversaries. You must not threaten. You must negotiate, cause that works so well.

Of course they are wrong. Strong-arm dictators and terrorists know only 1 thing, and that’s power and force. And thankfully, like Reagan with the Soviets, Kim actually believes that Trump will follow through on his threats. Which is why North Korea is now at the bargaining table. read more

If You Want the Money, You’ll Have to Work for It

Our government places conditions on all the money and aid they dole out – education, healthcare, State aid, everything. Why not this?

from IBD:

Why Does The Left Oppose Work Requirements For Welfare?

Attacks on President Trump’s push for work requirements to get welfare benefits fall into two categories: Either the work rules are pointless, or they are inhumane. Neither is correct.

For some on the left, the only measure of whether a poverty program is working is the number of people enrolled. They considered ObamaCare a great success, for example, precisely because it added millions of able-bodied adults onto this welfare program. They cheered the sharp rise in food stamp enrollment under President Obama as an economic stimulus. read more

Say Goodbye to the Obama Era

Trump Dismantles Another Obama ‘Achievement’ — Just One More To Go

This week, the Trump administration announced that it would revise President Obama’s draconian auto fuel economy mandates. That alone is big news. But it marks the near total reversal of Obama’s anti-growth domestic policies. That’s bigger news.

EPA head Scott Pruitt said Tuesday that the administration would rewrite Obama’s fuel economy standards starting with model year 2022. Obama’s plan was to mandate that all cars sold average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, up from 38.3 mpg this year.

As we have repeatedly explained in this space, Obama’s fuel economy mandate was little more than a thinly disguised electric car mandate, since hitting that level would have required a substantial increase in plug-in sales. As it stands, there are only a handful of powered cars that can go more than 54 miles on a gallon of gas.

Pruitt said that, instead of trying to force consumers into more expensive cars that environmentalists like, the focus at the EPA will be “on making cars that people actually buy and that are efficient.” read more

The Border Wall Works – Let’s Build It

from Constitution.com:

Trump Gets Amazing Proof of Just How Effective Border Walls Can Be

There is an old saying that good fences make for good neighbors and during his recent trip to California, President Donald trump learned how effective even a makeshift border wall can be.

Trump got some shocking news when he visited the southern border near San Diego, California, on Tuesday, March 13. Not only did he learn that a border wall can be highly effective, but he found out that there doesn’t even have to be some elaborate, high-dollar system to make it effective for stopping illegal border crossings.

Trump headed to the People’s Republic of California this week in part to view some border wall prototypes. read more

Innovation Born of Necessity

I am firmly against excessive tariffs. I’ve made that crystal clear on a number of occasions. Reasonable tariffs on imported goods are well… perfectly reasonable. At our founding, it was the source of federal government funding. Reasonable import tariffs (imposts) and duties covered the cost of operating the small federal government budget. It paid for the labor and clerical work of the importation and inspection process. As the feds were responsible for little else constitutionally, tariffs were an adequate funding system.

But these days, tariffs could not hope to cover the cost of operating the federal leviathan. They are now more a measure of protectionism worldwide. And I agree that on the world stage, America has allowed itself to be taken advantage of. Other nations expect America to charge minimal import tariffs and duties for the goods they export to us, but few reciprocate.

Nations like China do in fact take advantage of us. They expect us to treat them fairly, but often charge exorbitant tariffs on products we ship to them. And that’s assuming they accept our exports at all. In many cases, they simply do not. They don’t wish to compete with American imports on their own soil. For a long time, it has been rather one-sided.

And for just as long, the American government has put up with inequity, afraid to make waves. Enter President Trump. read more
