Instead of calling Trump illegitimate Dems should try to figure out where they went wrong

Liz | 01/23 at 06:49 PM

At what point does resistance become unpatriotic? Possibly, when elected leaders like Democrat John Lewis attempt to undermine the law of the land.

The dust-up between Lewis and Donald Trump began with the respected civil rights leader telling NBC’s Chuck Todd: “I don’t see this President-elect as a legitimate president…I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”

So, even though Donald Trump won more than the requisite number of Electoral College votes to defeat Hillary Clinton,  Lewis, who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, denies that Mr. Trump, as of Friday afternoon, will be our duly elected president.  

Five Moves That Can Help Trump Win Big

Liz | 01/11 at 06:48 PM

Half the country is excited about President-elect Donald Trump; half is not. What can he do to win over more Americans? Simple; charge out of the gate on January 21 with a bevy of policies that voters will like.  Here are five things Trump should do on Day One:
1. Call for term limits in Congress.
2. Walk away from the TPP.
3. Call for a halt to admitting Syrian refugees until the authorities have the vetting process down cold.
4. Issue an executive order rescinding Congress’ exemption from Obamacare, an excellent idea proffered by Heather Higgins, President of the Independent Women’s Voice. As she suggests, there’s nothing like skin in the game to light a fire under legislators. Next, announce that Congress will repeal Obamacare to take effect December 2018. Meanwhile, allow insurers to immediately begin offering state-legal policies without the ACA’s expensive and unwieldy mandates.  Make it clear that no one will lose coverage.
5. Approve the Keystone Pipeline.

How Trump’s Blustery Optimism Helps Propel the Economy

Liz | 01/04 at 06:22 PM

Have Americans gone crazy? How can optimism be soaring when we’re told the future looks so bleak? The Conference Board reports that consumer confidence is higher than it was in 2007 – before the Great Recession.

Christmas spending rose at the fastest clip since 2011 – up 3.8 percent - and businesses are more upbeat too. A survey of purchasing managers noted the most buoyant investment in inventories since record-keeping began in 2007. Has everyone gone nuts?

Obama’s full-blown, year-end temper tantrum

Liz | 12/30 at 03:45 PM

Let’s be honest: President Obama is throwing a good old-fashioned foot-stomping world class temper tantrum. He is just beside himself that the stupid American voter elected Donald Trump. How could the country willfully dismiss the erudite recommendation of nearly every news organization in the nation – as well as Obama’s personal plea that not electing Hillary would be a personal insult to him? How could young people not respond to Obama’s call to “bend the arc of history in a better direction?” It is beyond comprehension.

Trump’s Golden Opportunity: Slashing 179,000 Pages of Federal Regulations

To the dismay and puzzlement of disgruntled liberals, the Dow Jones Index has soared nearly 9 percent since Donald Trump was elected president on November 8. The Russell 2000 Index of small-cap stocks has jumped 15 percent. That was not expected.

The day before the election – the day FBI Director Comey again cleared Hillary Clinton—the market turned around a nine-day losing streak and jumped 400 points. CNN explained, “Monday’s dramatic rally was the clearest evidence yet that Wall Street feels more comfortable with the idea of Clinton winning than Trump.” In October, Politico summed up expectations with this headline: “Economists: A Trump win would tank the markets.” Oops.

Sore loser Obama turns to Russia hacking to delegitimize Trump’s triumph

Liz | 12/12 at 09:46 PM

Make no mistake: it’s payback time. In ordering up a “deep dive” into possible Russian interference in the election of Donald Trump, sore loser Barack Obama wants to delegitimize the real estate magnate’s win. His motive? Punishing Trump for the years the mogul spent publicly questioning whether Obama was an American citizen, which cast doubts on the legitimacy of hispresidency. Ah, how sweet the revenge. And how pitiful.

Like LBJ, Trump Is Loving the Role of America’s Dealmaker

Liz | 12/07 at 09:58 PM

Think Donald Trump is a one-off? Not quite—in many ways, he appears a successor to LBJ.

Following the unprecedented election of Donald J. Trump, many continue to look for precedents. The real estate magnate’s intervention with Carrier reminded columnist Peggy Noonan of JFK’s engagement with the steel industry. Others have likened Trump’s unlikely campaign to that of another celebrity who upset the established order – Ronald Reagan.

Donald Trump’s Guerilla War Against the Liberal Media

Liz | 11/30 at 09:32 AM

Donald Trump has declared war on the liberal media and there’s nothing they can do about it. To the delight of millions of Americans, he has scolded them for their bias and mocked their hypocrisy. Best of all, he is showing just how unimportant they will be to his presidency.

Want to Know Why Democrats Voted for Trump? Ask Mrs. P

Liz | 11/16 at 07:04 PM

As they navel-gaze, wondering why one of the biggest election machines in the country’s history lost to an under-funded, untutored, political outsider who was continually slammed by the media, Democrats should focus on—Mrs. Perleman.

Yes, President Trump will succeed. Here’s the incredible reason why

Liz | 11/15 at 10:08 PM

The liberal media is setting Donald Trump up to succeed. How? By making Trump out to be such a vile, erratic, destructive loon that unless he reenacts the Slaughter of the Innocents he will outperform expectations.
