  1. ACLU’s Islamist CACLU’s Islamist Complains About Trump’s SOTU Mentions of America
    February 1, 2018

    If a nuclear war breaks out, the only things to survive will be cockroaches and Faiz Shakir.

    Shakir went from ThinkProgress to Pelosi’s office to the ACLU. And here he is giving that anti-American organization’s response to Trump’s State of the Union.

  2. FBI’s War on the Memo
    The Bureau desperately tries to discredit the document — before its release in the coming days.

    The increasingly embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation launched a preemptive strike yesterday against the hotly anticipated foreign surveillance abuse memo in hopes of discrediting the document before it is released in coming days.

    The public relations effort came as more evidence became available about the questionable behind-the-scenes conduct of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who allegedly tried to use his authority to undermine President Trump’s campaign.

    The classified four-page memo, compiled by House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), was based on classified information supplied by the FBI and its parent agency, the U.S. Department of Justice. The two organizations “fought tooth and nail” to avoid handing over the relevant records to Congress, according to Fox News, citing an inside source. They produced the documents only after Nunes “threatened to move forward with contempt of Congress citations.”

    The Dems’ response to the state of the union says it all about the party today.

    Unlike the president, I don’t call everything “incredible,” but Trump’s State of the Union address was incredible, beautifully delivered. (This guy could have a future in television!)

    As proof, I cite every single media outlet bitterly complaining after the speech that, as MSNBC’s chyron put it: “TRUMP FAILS TO MENTION RUSSIA’S ELECTION MEDDLING IN STATE OF THE UNION.”

    He did not address the elephant in the room!

    A lot of people don’t like Trump, but no one was thinking that. It’s only an elephant in your room, media. This is the very definition of solipsistic.

    What did they want him to say? “I confess!”? Then they would have complained that the speech was all about him. There would be five Mueller deputies going over the speech, line by line.

    If that’s all they got, it was a great speech.

  4. Trump’s SOTU Hit the Right Foreign Policy Notes – Now Comes the Hard Part

    President Trump’s first State of the Union address was not heavy on national security issues. It did, however, make one critical point: In reviewing the international achievements of his first year in office, Trump was abundantly clear that the Obama era is over. Primarily retrospective assessments like Trump’s are perfectly legitimate for a president finishing his initial year, especially given what his policies are replacing.

    Gone was President Obama’s self-congratulatory moral posturing, replaced by a concrete list of accomplishments that will inevitably increase the power of America’s presence in the world. Trump’s policy is not only not isolationist — as many of his opponents (and a few misguided supporters) contend — his pursuit of Ronald Reagan’s “peace through strength” approach actually demonstrates that Obama’s detached, ethereal retreat from American assertiveness internationally amounted to the real isolationism.
