Easter Week celebrates resurrection. It’s fitting that of all weeks, the signs of the American resurrection championed by Donald Trump are finally beginning to show. There is a book titled Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, Really Bad Day. Let’s change that to the left’s terrible, horrible, really bad week, because an American resurrection is happening. The week started with the swearing in of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This portends a potentially sane court policy for years. Another ideological leftist on the court would have been a disaster. Instead, we have a stabilizing, common sense, intellectually clear judge to countermand
Comments: On January 20th there was real Change. Now, there is real Hope.
Excellent article! It does give one hope when you read it. We´re not out of the woods by a long shot but at least we are heading in the right direction. I will continue to pray for President Trump and this country. The radical left will not give up willingly. They must be defeated and I am, at least, hopeful that we can do it. If we also have to drag the same Never Trumpers kicking and screaming as the President fulfills his promise to the American people so be it. They will eventually get on board or be pushed aside in 2018. Keep praying for the President´s resolve, wisdom, clear agenda, and most of all his safety. I don´t put anything past the left especially as they warch their agenda fail bigly. MAGA!
The crazy little fat boy in Korea has been itching to use nukes on somebody, anybody for a long time. Thank the Lord he did not do it during Smidgen´s reign of error. Smidgen would have brought his vacation family of 70 to the underground White House in West Va. for one long party and we would be cursing him as we fried.
As long as Captain Roger Hill things keep happening in plain sight of our elected GOP who thank him for his service then defecate on him, I´ll keep my pom-poms in the basement closet. It matters more than all the "good" things "just in time for Easter."
In this time of Passover I´m still waiting for the Angel of Death to take out the angel of death. Then the dems will howl over any nomination to the Supreme Court. And perhaps something really wrong can be righted.
In less than 100 days, President Trump (yes, please use both words when referring to him from now on) has already initiated (or proposed) more substantive, transformative change than any other President in my lifetime. Yes, even more than Ronaldus Maximus.
If that seems like hyperbole, allow me to point out the biggest differences. I see him as the first President to begin to significantly rein in the out-of-control size and regulatory reach of the federal government. And for that the Uniparty has now aligned to treat him as "the enemy". And speaking of enemies, I also see him as the first President to rein in the enemedia. All other Presidents had either bowed to the enemedia or continued to pretend they were an honest, objective profession. Trump has exposed them for what they are, and this will have huge implications on our society in general in "resurrecting" our entire culture going forward.
If he can continue in this manner (and that´s a big IF), he may go down as one of our greatest Presidents.
Praise goes to the President for his initiative in carrying forth his plans. Hoo-ah!
I´ve been celebrating the Ressurrection for nearly 70 years (the first 5 I wasn´t aware of much but colored eggs). I must disagree with the idea that anything could diminish the Easter Story, including some dumbutt writer who mixed his metaphors to include The Almighty and the President in the same event.
Imagine the poor advertisement writer who yesterday tried to sell beer by saying, ´´Make Good Friday even better with our beer´´ No act of God can possibly be diminished by what a man says about it. If that causes a Christian to feel badly about misplaced words, then that is too bad. Love will just have to add that one into the multitude of sins it covers.
Reuters reported Tuesday that “Pope Francis hopes to mend ties with Muslims on his trip to Egypt on Friday but faces criticism from church conservatives for meeting Islamic religious leaders after a spate of deadly attacks against Christians.” He has to mend ties? After Palm Sunday jihad massacres at two churches in Egypt, shouldn’t it be Egyptian Muslims who are reaching out to him to mend ties? “A main reason for the trip,” Reuters explains, “is to try to strengthen relations with the 1,000-year-old Azhar center that were cut by the Muslim side in 2011 over what it said were repeated insults
The Atlantic’s May cover features Alec Baldwin covered in orange makeup holding up a Trump wig. The cover asks, “Can Satire Save the Republic?” What is satire saving the Republic from? Republicans. While making America safe for Socialism. After Bush won, Democrats fought back by doubling down on the ridicule. Before long they were getting their news from Jon Stewart’s smirk. Stewart spawned a whole range of imitators. Today you can find numberless clones of the Daily Show across cable and even on CBS and, soon, on NBC. The left is devoutly convinced that this snickering can save America. That it’s better than
Today is the scheduled date for the French election. Darned if I or anyone can say how it will turn out, though I think our President is right -- the attack on three policemen on the Champs-Élysées would certainly seem to boost the chances of Marine le Pen. Of course, I could be wrong, and Barack Obama’s apparent favorite Emmanuel Macron, who says terrorism will “be a fact of daily life” that his countrymen will just have to get used to, will appeal to enough suicidal Frenchmen to carry the day. March for Science On Saturday, crowds at the laughably titled global
Democrats inherit the foreign policy crises of a thousand Republican presidential fathers, but the foreign policy crises inherited by incoming Republicans in the White House are always orphans. Or at least that’s how the media likes to spin it. If you believe your random mainstream media outlet of choice, North Korea and Syria were crises freshly spawned by this administration with no prior history. But these ticking time bombs are the direct result of the two terrible terms of his predecessor. The Nobel Peace Prize winner’s years in the White House were the most dysfunctional, schizophrenic and senseless eight years of our national
RUSH: Steve in Springfield, Massachusetts. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello, sir. CALLER: Oh, Rush, wow. This is a tremendous honor. Spare me if I sound a little nervous. I used to listen to you on THE in Leicester in the late eighties. Anyway — RUSH: That makes you a lifer. I mean, if you’ve been around since the late eighties, you’ve been around since the beginning. CALLER: Yeah. But I’ll tell you, you know, two things that I heard on your show really reshaped my analysis of liberalism. One of them, when you said it was
Rupert Murdoch should sue his sons. James and Lachlan seem intent on destroying Fox News or at least reforming it drastically, which in the final analysis comes to the same thing. The sons think they´re the new hip thing, but they´re the opposite. They´re terminally square. And not just because Fox was the only big-time conservative game in town and therefore could lap CNN and MSNBC, as the network has done for years, but because liberalism isn´t nearly as cool as the boys think it is. It´s actually stodgy and vastly more old-fashioned than conservatism and certainly libertarianism. (I know that´s hard to
The Associated Press edited the words of a Muslim man who allegedly killed three white people in downtown Fresno Tuesday afternoon and shouted “Allahu Akbar!” The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people. (RELATED: Muslim Shooter Kills Three Whites In Fresno) Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.” On Twitter, the AP’s report gave no indication that the suspect’s words were said in Arabic. The AP took flack on Twitter for the edits,
If Animal House were to be rebooted today, Bluto – who would probably be updated into a differently–abled trans being of heft – might ask, “See if you can guess what am I now?” before expelling a whole mass of pus-like root vegetable on the WASPrivileged villains and announcing, “I’m a university – get it?” At least popping a zit gets rid of the infection and promotes healing. But today, the higher education racket festers on the rear end of our culture, a painful, useless carbuncle of intellectual fraud, moral bankruptcy, and pernicious liberal fascism that impoverishes the young while it
RUSH: I got another piece today, an introspective piece about the Democrats, a New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters, there is no leadership in the Democrat Party whatsoever. It is just a tremendous indictment of where the Democrat Party is. Now, you hear me say that, and I know what you’re saying, “What do you mean, the Democrat Party’s in trouble, Rush? Have you looked at the media?” And you see the stories that are out there, and it proves my point that is the media that is running the progressive movement. The Democrat Party is just an arm of
They have the House, they have the Senate, they have the presidency -- and nothing´s happening. Nothing, that is, that Donald Trump doesn´t do by himself (i. e. reversing Obama´s executive orders and cutting regulations in general, reviving American global power, etc.). The Republicans in the legislature are a disgrace. They can´t get it together to compromise on anything and move forward -- no tax reform, no healthcare, no nothing. They are overwhelmed by a combination of overweening ego and rigid ideology -- a lethal cocktail. What their behavior is doing is creating an inevitable situation where they lose control of
My Sunday New York Post column today takes a look at how the traditional (well, since FDR, in American political usage) first hundred days are going: As the end of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office approaches, now’s a good a time to cut through the fog of misinformation, disinformation, media propaganda, ideological bias and outright hostility that has greeted his arrival in Washington and take a clear-eyed look at how he’s really doing. Answer: much better than you think. The rumor mills have been working overtime in Washington this weekend -- and I guess we´ll find later today
My focus this week is on the “wiretapping” (electronic interception of communications, if you insist) of President Trump and his associates during the campaign. It seems to me this story is rapidly unfolding -- if only mostly in overseas press and online -- and promises to be far more explosive than the Watergate story, an account that says frightening things about our intelligence agencies and those of some of our allies, most particularly Great Britain. It has become increasingly clear to me that there was widespread wiretapping of President Trump and his associates and that the underlying justification was pretextual
President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. WATCH: (Video) In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn. “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry
It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the
The “Antifa” far left Communist group has managed to get an entire parade and carnival canceled in Portland because the Multnomah County Republicans were going to be in the parade. (Photo) The communists threatened to riot, loot, assault people at the parade. The festival people decided to cancel the entire weekend of activities, which was going to be this weekend due to the threats of violence by the leftist group. The Antifa group promised to rush the parade and drag away the Republicans. “We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag
Chelsea Clinton urged the importance of fighting hunger as she was honored at a New York charity gala on Tuesday night. The former First Daughter, who is a Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, was presented with the City Harvest Award for Commitment for her support of the organization through volunteering with the Clinton Foundation´s Day of Action program. She wore a colorful patterned dress, black cardigan and nude heels to the event on Tuesday, which was also attended by Chrissy Teigen, actress Bridget Moynahan, Real Housewives Of New York star Bethenny Frankel and domestic goddess Martha Stewart.
Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into
The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
I HAVE been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years. My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention´s leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to byline corrected by staff
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz could potentially be unable to work for up to a month due to a medical emergency. Chaffetz took to Instagram Wednesday to announce doctors at the University of Utah recommended immediate surgery on his foot to prevent a serious infection caused by screws from a former injury. “Almost 12 years ago, I shattered several bones in my foot which required 14 screws and a metal plate to repair,” he said in the caption. “Yes, I wish I could say I was cliff diving in Mexico but the truth is I
In the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities. The self-professed “Vandals of UT” say they are responding to no specific incident but “the everyday crisis that is rape culture,
ESPN laid off 100 employees on Wednesday as part of a company-wide restructuring. The struggling cable sports network first announced the layoffs last month. “We have long been about serving fans and innovating to create the best content for them. Today’s fans consume content in many different ways and we are in a continuous process of adapting to change and improving what we do,” ESPN said in a March statement. “Inevitably, that has consequences for how we utilize our talent. We are confident that ESPN will continue to have a roster of talent that is unequaled in sports.” Among those who were
San Francisco based Federal Judge, William Orrick, issued a preliminary injunction today blocking any attempt by the Trump administration to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials. Judge Orrick said president Trump has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending.(Snip)Judge Orrick is a campaign bundler to former President Obama for over $200,000, and is married to a pro-abortion activist. You might remember Judge Orrick from 2015 when he blocked the release of videos made by the Center for Medical Progress, the group that unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that President Trump and Republicans in Congress will have "doo-doo stuck to their shoe for a long time" if they pass the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The comments came a day after the AHCA received a boost in support from the House Freedom Caucus, which announced it would back the bill. "I think President Trump is really making fools of the members of Congress, of his own party," she said in her weekly press conference. "He´s asking them to vote for a bill that is wildly unpopular in the country,
