Message from Georgia: Hating Trump is not a platform

Liz | 06/20 at 07:18 AM

Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District.
Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful that both those claims are true.

Scalise shooting: Will Hillary tell Democrats now to behave?

Liz | 06/14 at 07:27 AM

Remember the outrage over feisty Trump supporters roughing up protesters during the campaign? How Trump was blamed for “inciting violence” and accused of egging on his followers?

We’re in a Comey, Russia sinkhole, America.  The GOP needs to lead us out of it.

Liz | 06/09 at 09:27 AM

Let’s be honest: nobody “won” on Thursday. Any day that the president of the United States, the Justice Department, the FBI and the national media are shown to be untrustworthy and are slimed on worldwide TV is not a good day.

Hillary Clinton’s bitter Wellesley commencement address a missed opportunity

Liz | 05/30 at 07:41 AM

The New York Times tells us that the students cheered Mrs. Clinton “thunderously.” Of course they did. They have been weaned on courses like “Love and Intimacy” in the Women’s and Gender Studies department or “Changing Gender Constructions in the Modern Middle East” in the History Department.  There’s nothing wrong with those studies, unless they crowd out learning how the progressive policies of Bernie Sanders and Mrs. Clinton have failed in France, for instance, leading to a stagnant economy with few opportunities for progress. Or how capitalism has delivered billions from poverty, including in Communist China, where the growth miracle of recent decades was facilitated by policies that encouraged entrepreneurship and private enterprise.

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.
