Never believe your press clippings


"How to Rebuild the Republican Party" after Trump

My time machine went back two months to an article in the Atlantic by David Frum, the George W. Bush speechwriter, Yale '82, Harvard Law '87. The headline was: "How to Rebuild the Republican Party: Incorporate the best of Trump’s insights, while discarding his volatile personality and noxious attitudes."

Wall Street Journal bemoans Carrier deal

Sir Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal condemned the saving of 1,000 jobs in Indiana because -- gasp -- President Trump negotiated with the executives. This is somehow a "shakedown."

Oh, was it a shakedown when the Reagan administration bent broadcasting regulations in the 1980s that cleared the way for the Fox Broadcasting Network to get on the air? How about the millions in donations to Hillary and the Clinton Foundation from Murdoch, Murdoch's company, and his executives? Were they not bribes to curry favor in the Second Clinton administration?

Electoral College dropout

Levi Guerra, who lives near Vancouver, Washington, will enter the Electoral College later this month as a Hillary Clinton scholar. Garra held a press conference to tell the world that he will not keep his words and vote for Clinton, but will instead vote for someone else in an effort to stop the inauguration of President Trump.

President Trump amps up his political capital

President Trump's 30-state election along with Republican continued control of both houses of Congress gives him the most political capital any Republican president has had since Ike Eisenhower.

In Indianapolis and Cincinnati on Thursday, he worked to increase that political capital by holding rallies and having a lot of fun. President Trump is very entertaining and he gets great feedback off the crowd.

Obama didn't even try to save Carrier jobs

From Barack Obama in June:
But for those folks who have lost their job right now because a plant went down the Mexico, that isn’t going to make you feel better. And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back, and when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do?
There’s — there’s no answer to it. He just says, “Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.” Well, how — what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually, the answer is he doesn’t have an answer.
Come January 20 we will have a president who cares.

President Trump receives the hero's welcome in Indiana

Three takes on three breaking presidential stories.

Liberals whine about President Trump's success with Carrier

President Trump's success in keeping Carrier in Indiana has provided me with another gallon of liberal tears.

President Trump and Mitt game the media

Come a little closer to the screen.

I am going to divulge the secret of getting President Trump right.

Mexican side to Carrier story

From WRTV on March 1: "Trump: If I'm president, Carrier won't move to Mexico."

Trump can't save those jobs said all the experts in the media -- who of course know more than a mere billionaire about the ways of finance and business.

President Trump gets NATO to change

In his campaign, President Trump threatened U.S. funding of NATO if the allies didn't start living up to promises to spend two percent of their GDP on defense. The United States was one of only five of the 28 NATO nations to keep its word.

Making West Virginia Great Again

Coal ain't dead.

Pray for Pelosi

Every Republican in America should pray for the continued good health of House Minority Leader Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi (D-Politburo) so that her reign as minority leader lasts well into the 21st century.

Ari Fleischer on Trumping the press

This is not a book review, although I may send Ari Fleischer a copy. This is my take on a column from President Bush 43's first (and best) spokesman.

President Trump will end payoffs to Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood supports and helps elect Democrats. They return the favor by giving the world's largest abortion corporation millions of dollars thanks to a law a Democratic Congress passed in 1970.

This is an outrageous and after 46 years President Trump and his Republican Congress will end this corrupt practice.

47th Amazon review of "Trump the Press"

Michael Sanderson made my day by writing a favorable review of "Trump the Press" on Amazon.

President Trump just saved 1,000 jobs at Carrier

Congratulations, Republicans of Indiana. You ignored your governor's support of Cruz, looked past the media caricatures, and trusted Donald Trump to save those jobs at Carrier.

President Trump's victory tour begins on Thursday

President Trump will kick off a victory tour to thank his supporters for his 30-state win (most in 20 years) with a rally in Cincinnati at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Clinton Foundation investigation

From the New York Post: "Trump administration will pressure foreign states to probe Clinton Foundation."

Recount was a great gift to President Trump

Team Clinton had a brilliant plan with a focus group-tested slogan: Audit the Vote. Sure, a recount could not overturn the election, but a recount could undermine support for The Donald, and discount the Republican mandate.

President Trump will end having taxpayers pay for union work

The Associated Press's Matthew Barakat wrote that federal workers fear Trump's "drain the swamp" will hurt the average government worker, most of whom do not live in Washington.

What do you think of President Trump's latest Cabinet picks?

From the Daily Mail:
Trump names anti-Obamacare congressman Tom Price his health secretary amid rumors he will make General James Mattis defense secretary and Ben Carson HUD secretary today.
Sad that I have to rely on a London tabloid over the Wall Street Journal for news about the coming presidency.
