Nancy Pelosi has a blank check, and she’d rather spite Trump than cash it – Washington Examiner

Friday, January 18, 2019

The president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have made it abundantly clear that this is all a performance to them. Trump had two years of Republican control of the House and Senate and failed to prioritize his premier campaign promise: increased border security. A GOP-controlled Congress didn’t pass so much as an e-verify expansion bill, let alone secure funding for his wall. He waited until the eleventh hour before…

Trump harmed the public by canceling Pelosi’s trip – Washington Examiner

Friday, January 18, 2019

Although both sides in the latest Trump-Pelosi kerfuffle are acting like juveniles, the president’s action in canceling the speaker’s trip to Afghanistan is a worse offense. It actually does interfere with significant government business. Yes, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., began this latest spectacle by saying she might (hypothetically) rescind President Trump’s invitation to appear before Congress for a State of the Union address. Her reasoning was specious and petty. But…

BuzzFeed’s story depends on Trump being heard on tape – Washington Examiner

Friday, January 18, 2019

BuzzFeed’s extraordinary report last night suggests that President Trump conspired to induce perjury and obstruct justice. It has excited many Democrats. But even if BuzzFeed is correct in its central assertion — that two federal law enforcement sources say Trump told his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress — I’m not convinced it’s a major problem for the president. Unless, that is, law enforcement has audio recordings of…

Police officer Jason Van Dyke case prompts look at Cook County judge selection – Crain’s Chicago Business

Friday, January 18, 2019

Like a bad movie or a Chicago winter, the horrors of our criminal justice system seem never-ending. The latest headlines prompt the question of why, after a jury found officer Jason Van Dyke guilty of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery in the killing of Laquan McDonald, three of his police colleagues were found innocent yesterday of charges that they conspired to cover up his misdeeds. Like most…

Here’s why Trump should worry about the latest report on his directing Cohen to lie to Congress – Washington Examiner

Friday, January 18, 2019

President Trump now stands accused of directing his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about Trump’s attempt to court Russian President Vladimir Putin during the campaign and build a hotel in Moscow. After two years of “bombshell” reports that proved duds, and “this is the beginning of the end!!!” declarations from the press, it’s natural to be skeptical of the import of this one. Also, after the biggest…

No (Trump) collusion? Rudy Giuliani’s defense strategy doubles down as evidence mounts in Mueller probe – NBCNews.com

Friday, January 18, 2019

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, seemed to acknowledge that there was collusion between one or more people involved in the Trump campaign and Russia — but just not involving his client, President Trump. Giuliani, who, along with Trump, has spent the last year telling the public that there has been no collusion, suddenly shifted gears and claimed he…

Abortion is not as popular as you might think – Washington Examiner

Friday, January 18, 2019

Typically when debating abortion, one of the fall-back positions of pro-choice advocates is not only the legal authority of Roe v. Wade but the support of the average American. A new poll shows that support has shifted toward support for restricting abortion. In a Marist poll released this week, far more Americans support abortion restrictions than I would have predicted. About 75 percent say they would limit abortion to the…

Video Women’s March canceled over concerns of being ‘overwhelmingly white’ The Women’s March event slated for January 19th, has been canceled because of concerns of being ‘overwhelmingly white.’ The Women’s March, which was hailed as an international rebuke of President Trump in 2017 when throngs of activists took the streets the day after his inauguration, is steadily losing supporters amid an anti-Semitism scandal that won’t go away.

Mike Pence is right on North Korea, and Trump should listen – Washington Examiner

Friday, January 18, 2019

Speaking at the State Department on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence was clear on where negotiations on North Korean denuclearization stood: “While the president has started a promising dialogue with Chairman Kim, we still await concrete steps by North Korea to dismantle the nuclear weapons that threaten our people and our allies in the region.” As President Trump sets the stage for a second meeting with North Korean dictator Kim…
