Trump under attack (from all sides)—that swamp is deep, America

Liz | 05/17 at 10:59 AM

We should have seen it coming. You don’t threaten to Drain the Swamp! without awakening some pretty surly bottom feeders. It is clear that the political establishment simply hates President Trump. That goes for Republicans almost as much as Democrats.

Health care bill passes in House, Trump and GOP finally come together

Liz | 05/04 at 05:00 PM

GOP members of the House finally climbed aboard the Trump Train.  It’s about time.  Putting aside their posturing and pontificating, Republicans at long last produced a win for the Trump White House and for Americans, passing a bill to replace ObamaCare. This was a central promise of the past several years; they needed to get it done.

Nunes goes squishy, reinvigorating the left and deflating the GOP, but Freedom Watch steps in

Liz | 04/07 at 03:50 PM

Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced Thursday that he is stepping down from leading the investigation into Russia’s interference in our election, and allegations that the Obama White House used surveillance information on Trump associates for political purposes. It is a terrible mistake, and a blow to Republicans.

Susan Rice caught ‘unmasking’ Trump aides as Democrats, liberal media do backflips to divert

Liz | 04/04 at 02:17 PM

Enough with the smokescreens! Democrats, aided and abetted by their friends in the media, have long dismissed President Trump’s charges that he was “wiretapped” by former President Obama, even as evidence mounts that indeed surveillance of the Trump camp took place, and that information collected by so-called “incidental” monitoring was illegally leaked to the public.

Freedom Caucus drives dagger into heart of young Trump presidency

Liz | 03/24 at 04:18 PM

It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up 25%; it’s likely the increases will be higher this year.

Liz Peek: Time for the Freedom Caucus to climb aboard the Trump train

Liz | 03/24 at 04:07 PM

This is the truth: the Freedom Caucus has breathed new life into the demolished Democratic Party.
It is Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who are celebrating the breakdown of efforts to pass the Affordable Care Act – not the country.
For eight years Democrats have accused Republicans of being the “Party of No”, only capable of obstruction and posturing but not of governing. In defeating the efforts of Paul Ryan, Mike Pence, Tom Price and Donald Trump to dump ObamaCare and replace it with a slimmed-down, more intelligent and flexible program, they have given Democrats incalculable ammunition to make that case.

Trump train rolling, in spite of everything

Liz | 03/17 at 04:49 PM

Suggesting that Donald Trump should keep his head down, ignore petty slights and soldier on is like telling a raging bull to cover up his privates; both are unlikely propositions. Nonetheless, it’s good advice. The country elected Mr. Trump because voters were unhappy with the status quo – a sputtering economy, the loss of power and pride to overseas rivals, the unaffordability of healthcare, the inability to stem illegal immigration and the dithering over how to protect the country from terrorism. Outrage from a jilted Left doesn’t make those problems any less real.

Cancel vacations for Congress until August: How can push back against hysterical Democrats

Liz | 03/07 at 06:29 AM

President Obama and Democrats in Congress appear willing to use every legal (and maybe some illegal) tools available to undermine the Trump White House. Illegal leaks, misleading news stories, demonstrations, bureaucratic meddling, and Congressional obstruction have morphed into the Left’s partisan playbook, intentionally slow walking those trying to move forward on the Trump agenda.

Five proposals to get the Trump train back on track

Liz | 02/17 at 10:46 AM


Donald Trump’s presidency is only one month old, but already the buzzards are circling. The president cheered supporters by assailing his critics at yesterday’s press conference, but there is little doubt that the Trump White House is struggling to keep its momentum. The drama over Michael Flynn’s departure and the defeat of Labor nominee Pudzer raise concerns over organization and focus, and feed headlines reporting “borderline chaos.”

Note to the bewildered Democrats: Hating Trump is not a policy

Liz | 02/09 at 09:46 AM

Democrats are overjoyed that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against President Trump’s immigration order. That figures; never mind the legal issues or the possible impact on the White House’s ability to enact measures aimed at keeping the country safe. Most important: it was a blow to Trump, and Democrats couldn’t be happier. It’s gotten personal.
