President Trump urges Steve Scalise to run for governor

Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) gained much of his nationwide fame after surviving a shooting by a Democratic domestic terrorist. Now, the President wants the 11-year Congressional veteran to leave Capitol Hill and lead Louisiana as Governor.

This comes from two sources on Air Force One where the President talked to the Congressman earlier this week. According to Axios:

As Trump travelled to southwestern Louisiana on Tuesday with several members of Congress, including Scalise, the president pulled out polling numbers to show Scalise how popular Trump is in Scalise’s home state, according to a source with direct knowledge.

Opinion

Perhaps Scalise’s brand of Republican politics will translate better at the state level in the executive branch than it has on Capitol Hill. He scores a dismal 33% Liberty Score, second only to the lone Democrat in the state for being the least conservative. He’s clearly popular there, so getting him to take the reins while someone more conservative heads to Washington DC seems like a win-win for everyone.

Personally, I like Scalise, but his politics have been lukewarm from he start.

Quote

“Scalise seemed flattered by Trump’s pitch, but politely dismissed the idea, according to a source with direct knowledge. The election is in October and the deadline to enter the race is early August.” – Jonathan Swan

Final Thoughts

It won’t happen, but it’s good to see the President thinking about more than DC politics. Gaining more control of the states is essential for conservatives as we enter an era in which DC overreach shows no signs of slowing.

Russia threatens new crisis in Cuba as warship harbors in Havana

Russia threatens new crisis in Cuba as warship harbors in Havana

Russia is revving up the engines of the new Cold War as it sends a state-of-the-art warship armed with cruise missiles to Havana, Cuba, around 90 miles from the shores of Florida. This latest provocation marks the closest Russia has come to garnering a response from the United States over its combative measures to counter America’s alleged ramping up of aggression in Europe.

Neither side believes they are being the aggressor. Neither side is willing to back down.

This is significant for two reasons. First, the presence of a ship capable of completely leveling a small city by the sea is more than just an exercise. It’s a clear statement to the Trump administration that they do not want troops and, most importantly, nuclear weapons in the Europe. Second, it’s a departure from standard operating procedure for Russian President Vladimir Putin who has been reluctant to participate in Cuba at all in recent years.

But Cuba’s strategic importance cannot be overstated. Russia invoking their ally that is closest to the United States is an unambiguous warning.

Russia knows the Trump administration is juggling balls on multiple fronts right now. They are pushing their aggression towards him in hopes of subverting his presidency and sowing grievances already seeded in America.

Mainstream media tried again with E. Jean Carroll. Then she told Anderson Cooper something insane.

Mainstream media tried again with E Jean Carroll Then she told Anderson Cooper something insane

Immediately after E. Jean Carroll made her accusation President Trump raped her 23 year ago, mainstream media pounced. But her story seemed odd at best, though not nearly as odd as her own responses to questions, so they backed off quickly. This week started with a resurgence of support as the NY Times, MSNBC, CNN, and other progressive outlets revived the story and gave her a chance to make sense of her story. They wanted to believe it, not just because of backlash from the #MeToo crowd that didn’t like the dropped coverage but because if she is being honest, that would taint the man they hate the most.

They NY Times went so far as to call themselves out for not covering the story more because she’s a credible accuser.

How will the rest of the week play out now that she made the oddest of all her statements to date while being interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper?

“I think most people think of rape as being sexy. Think of the fantasies.” – E. Jean Carroll

Taken aback, Cooper instantly called for a commercial break.

Like Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller, and everyone else the left chooses as the person to take down President Trump, E. Jean Carroll is turning out to be even less capable than her predecessors. This woman may be insane.

Mexico prevents illegal immigrants from entering U.S.

Mexico prevents illegal immigrants from entering US

Most leftist media outlets have ridiculed the President’s deal with Mexico, saying there was nothing new that would happen as a result of the agreement to cooperate on stopping the flow of migrants through Mexico across our southern border. But as One America News reported, the evidence of efficacy is very clear.

OAN Reporting:

Mexican officials are ramping up their crackdown on illegal immigration to the United States. Meanwhile, Democrats in Congress continue to oppose President Trump’s immigration agenda. One America News looked to President Trump for an update.

“Do you consider Mexico an ally or an adversary, a friend or a foe?” the President was asked.

“Well, this week I consider them a friend,” President Trump replied. “They’ve been doing a great job.”

The Mexican National Guards is preventing Central American migrants from entering the U.S., according to AFP Mexico. A group of migrants tried to cross into El Paso Texas over the weekend, but they were detained by Mexican security personnel. This comes as Mexican officials say they’ve completed the deployment of 6,000 national guards along popular migrants routes as part of the recent agreements with the U.S.

Mexico’s National Guard says their mission is to crack down on the human smuggling caravans traveling from Central America into the U.S.

AFP reports Mexican soldiers started patrolling the U.S. border last week as the clock is ticking on the 45-day observation period for Mexico to tackle mass migration. Mainstream media in the U.S. have claimed Mexico’s efforts would not block migrants from crossing into the US, but most recent developments suggest otherwise.

“Mexico is removing those people and they’re bringing them back to Honduras and different places, Guatemala, El Salvador – they bringing them back and so far they’ve been doing great,” the President complimented.

Presidents Trump is pressuring congressional Democrats to come together and change the immigration laws to discourage the influx of illegal arrivals. Additionally, DHS is bracing for sweeping roundups of illegal aliens in the country.

This unprecedented joint effort by Mexico and the U.U. is targeting transnational crime syndicates and their main sources of revenue.

Mexican officials say they could either deport the detained migrants to their countries of origin or help them remain in Mexico permanently. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador says he will fully cooperate with President Trump on immigration as his main objective is to maintain good relations with the U.S.

Still, congressional Democrats continue to oppose border security and enforcement of immigration law, demanding that all illegal aliens be released into the U.S.

If no deal on immigration is reached in Congress over the coming days, the DHS is expected to ramp up the roundups and deportations with help from Mexico.

Final Thoughts

Mexico has stepped up in ways that, frankly, I didn’t expect. This is a testament to the President’s deal-making abilities. In the 2016 campaign, he said Mexico would pay for the wall. In a way, they’re becoming the wall. This is a win for America.
