This quote from Emmanuel Macron didn't age well

In light of all that’s happening in France right now, President Emmanuel Macron is under fire from all sides. Left, right, center – all are protesting the embattled leader and calling for him to step down.

It makes this quote from his election 18-months ago a bit more interesting.

“I will fight with all my power against the divisions that undermine us and which are tearing us apart.”

Since Macron currently represents the division that is undermining France and tearing the French apart, is he now against himself?

Dan Crenshaw on the Democrats' goal

Some say today’s Democratic Party is very different from the one in the recent past. “Evolving” views has made it impossible for anyone in the party to be pro-life, against illegal immigration, or favorable to the free market, especially as it pertains to healthcare. Others say this is the true face of the Democratic Party and has been for years, even decades, as they were biding their time until a moment in history when they could reveal their actual intentions.

From Medicare-for-All to the Green New Deal to open borders to full-blown socialism, today’s Democratic Party has openly embraced some of the most horrendous policy proposals this nation has ever seen. They’re the type of policies we’d expect to see from totalitarian regimes and communist nations, not the United States of America. But perhaps that’s the point.

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has done a fine job taking to Twitter to express his concerns about Democrats and other major problems the nation faces. Last week, he posted a Tweet that deserves constant attention as it encapsulates the challenges conservatives face as we prepare for the 2020 election.

Though he only touched on a few points in his Tweet, the overarching message is clear. Democrats will not rest until they’ve brought an end to our republic. They have a different vision, one that is an existential threat to America.

Kudos to President Trump for listening to his base on gun control

Since before the 2016 election, I’ve said President Trump is malleable. He’ll listen to his base when we speak, and if his White House advisers are giving him bad advice, all we have to do is keep shouting the truth. He’ll hear us. He’s listening.

Following the mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, many Republicans started caving to calls for gun control. The President himself declared a need to take action and turned to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to find solutions they could put on his desk. Some of those closest to him, such as his daughter Ivanka and Jared Kushner, took the opportunity to promote their own progressive agenda and coax the President into considering “common sense” gun control measures.

Many in the base erupted. Not everyone did; there were conspicuous “conservatives” who took the President’s initial cue regarding gun control and thought this meant they needed to parrot his perspectives instead of trying to convince him otherwise. Will these same people now backtrack as the President has signaled he will no longer consider gun control legislation? I hope so. There’s no shame in following the President’s lead, and as he comes to his senses, so too should those who supported his calls for gun control.

“A lot of the people that put me where I am are strong believers in the Second Amendment, and I am also. And we have to be very careful about that. You know, they call it the slippery slope. All of a sudden everything gets taken away. We’re not going to let that happen.” – President Trump

As Politico reported, the President’s shifting tone is already having a positive effect on many Republicans who had jumped on the gun control bandwagon. But McConnell isn’t one of them. He’s annoyed, which is a good thing.

Republicans start to sour on gun control laws after Trump’s reversal

President Donald Trump has repeatedly emphasized there are already strong background checks on the books, an apparent reversal from his drive to push his party on tightening background checks. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi assailed Trump for the turnabout, with Schumer calling it “heartbreaking.” They are pushing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to take up the House-passed universal background checks bill, which lacks GOP support in the Senate.

Gun control is unconstitutional and ineffective. It’s an emotional response to the serious problems we have with crime and mental illness. We need real solutions, not gut reactions. It’s good to see the President take the lead against gun control.

‘Godfather’ star Gianni Russo on Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo’s rant

'Godfather' star Gianni Russo on Chris 'Fredo' Cuomo's rant

When CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was filmed delivering an unhinged rant to a heckler at a restaurant, one of the things many people took offense to was his declaration that the term “Fredo” was to Italian-Americans as the “n-word” is to African-Americans. This has been completely debunked since then with guests on his own show using the name to refer to Donald Trump Jr. But that didn’t keep CNN from backing their guy.

TMZ caught up with Gianni Russo, a star from The Godfather who told the reality of the situation from three unique perspectives. First, he said it wasn’t a racial slur and clearly referred to the weaker brother, a perspective he understands as a star of the film. Second, he knows the Cuomo family well and couldn’t believe Chris would have said that. Third, knowing father Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York, leads him to believe the elder Cuomo would have smacked his son had he heard him say what he did.

No real repercussions are expected against Cuomo from his employers at CNN.

Here’s a video from TMZ of Russo’s perspective:
