Donald Trump represents the ideas of the Republican Party - Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Some Republicans may not agree with this sentiment, but technically Sarah Huckabee Sanders is absolutely correct. It’s ludicrous to try to separate the doctrine of the GOP from the man voted into the White House by Republican voters. His actions may not align with the platform sometimes, but that’s not new. His rhetoric might seem to go against what GOP leadership wishes he’d say, but they knew that going in. Making deals with Democrats? So did Ronald Reagan.

It behooves me as a member of the Federalist Party to attach the president’s actions and words with the party he represents. However, that fact doesn’t change the more important message here: Donald Trump is the embodiment of the new Republican Party. He might not necessarily represent as many Republican voters as he did back in November. Maybe some of those folks who felt Hillary Clinton was simply too bad to allow into the White House (a sentiment I happen to hold) are now having a little bit of buyer’s remorse.

In reality it doesn’t matter if he goes to Chuck and Nancy every time before he goes to Mitch and Paul. The vast majority of Republican lawmakers supported his campaign. Therefore, there’s only two things they can do. They can continue to support him regardless of how far to the left he goes or they can admit that they didn’t see the extremely clear writing on the wall that made pretty much every action he’s made since inauguration day easier to predict than the outcome of a Floyd Mayweather fight.

Here’s her quote:

“The president is the leader of the Republican Party and was elected by Republicans. He beat out 16 other candidates to take that mantle on. And certainly I think one of the strongest voices. And so the idea that the Republican Party ideas are not represented in that room is just ridiculous.”

Ben Shapiro calls out the utter hypocrisy of the U.N. for not condemning Hamas

There are two forms of terrorism in the eyes of the United Nations. There’s terrorism that should be condemned and terrorism perpetrated against the nation of Israel. The former is universally condemned. The latter has a mitigating circumstances that makes it impossible for them to condemn terrorists or acts of violence. That mitigating circumstance is the fact that it’s being committed against Israel.

Apparently, that makes terrorism palatable to a majority in the United Nations. As conservative commentator Ben Shapiro puts it, Israel is a “disfavored” member of the international community.

“Hamas isn’t hiding the ball. It is evil. It celebrates evil. It pays terrorists to commit acts of evil. But the international community isn’t hiding the ball either when its members refuse to condemn terrorism as terrorism when it is directed against disfavored members of the international community.”

Read the whole article by Shapiro on DailyWire:

The ‘International Community’ Isn’t A Community. It’s A Rogue’s Gallery.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39304/international-community-isnt-community-its-rogues-ben-shapiroTake, for example, the United Nations’ recent decision not to condemn the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. This week, the U.N. General Assembly voted on a resolution condemning the group for “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk,” as well as for using assets to construct “tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas.” The U.N., which requires a two-thirds vote to pass a General Assembly resolution, voted down the resolution — 87 nations in favor, 58 against, 32 abstaining. All in all, that means that more nations voted against ratifying the resolution — 90 — than in favor of it.

As Israel destroys Hezbollah's terror tunnels, Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning

Hezbollah was caught red-handed building tunnels from Lebanon to Israel for the sole purpose of transporting soldiers, terrorists, and weapons across the border for future attacks on Israel. This isn’t disputed, but there still seems to be a false sense of outrage towards Israel for destroying them.

There’s no way to tell how Hezbollah expected Israel to react, but they have grown increasingly threatening as the fruits of their labors are being systematically demolished. Some fear retaliation for Israel’s efforts to protect itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it crystal clear any actions taken against the demolition process will be met by extreme force.

“If Hezbollah makes the mistake, and decides, in any way, to attack us or to oppose our operation, they will be hit with unimaginable blows.”

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

One of the great conservative thinkers of our time (or any time for that matter) is Thomas Sowell. He has been dishing out dimes of wisdom for decades, and though he is getting on in years he is still quite capable of breaking down the current status of geopolitics, economics, and cultural differences.

In other words, he’s the left’s greatest nightmare.

On the topic of fake news, which is near and dear to our hearts as a news outlet opposed to the machinations of mainstream media, Sowell breaks it down into a few simple choices. Either people in the media do their jobs or announce that they’ve stopped doing their jobs, in which case it’s up to the people to be discerning.

“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”
