Original Article

Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin said members of his party are united in their support of President Trump’s strategy of using tariffs to motivate Mexico to curb illegal immigration. “The caucus definitely supports the president's use of tariffs to give us leverage against our trading partners to treat us fairly,” Johnson said on Fox News Sunday. ”This is out of control. That’s why the president had to act, because Mexico had not been acting.”

Last week they were all ready to pass a bill to stop him. Now it was a ‘brilliant strategy’. They obviously think we’re stupid.

The ultimate in brilliance would be the dismantling of the Democrats' malicious, malignant propaganda network, the Enemy of the People, the Enemedia. Is PDT capable of this great (and for national survival, absolutely necessary) feat? We're betting on it...

#2 They don't think we are stupid, but they realized that they were being stupid by going against their voters and being on the losing side of this fight....so they want to pretend they are supportive now and claim the credit when it works.

This is a perfect example of getting people to do what they don't want to do. It's called leadership. The swampsters on both sides of the aisle don't like it. Get used to it. President Trump will be pulling you folks by the ears until 2024.

I like Senator Johnson, but he is fibbing here. Maybe, MAYBE, 15% of the GOPers in the House and Senate combined supported President Trump in his strategy to coerce Mexico to slow down the invasion. That percentage MAY have risen to 20% now that it appears to have been successful.

The Mexican government probably thinks it will somehow avoid compliance with the so far vague agreement. But I trust that Pres. Trump will hold their feet to the fire. So I suspect there will be lots of back and forth by all parties including the RINOs. Sen. Johnson and the rest will keep their fingers in the wind on this.

The pubbies behavior further points out two more deep staters - McConnell and Ernst. And several others. This reversal in strategy as claimed by Sen. Johnson reinforces the notion that it is us vs the deep state.

The vast majority of the GOP do NOT support this president - including my senator, Rob Portman. They need to shut up, sit down and support everything he is trying to do because if they don't, they are going to be toast. I don't know about the rest of Lucianne's readers, but I will never vote for another RINO like George W. Bush, Rob Portman, or any of this type again. They have to be full-throated conservatives that want to destroy everything liberal and socialist if they want my vote.

So many anti-Trump names we forget. McConnell, Ernst, Grassley, Lankford, Kennedy, Bunt, Thune, Barasso, Cruz, Cornin, Romney are just the ones I can remember speaking against US and in favor of Mexico. Some even spoke from the well of the senate, where they never dared defend Trump.

President Trump is the first US President who has had the intestinal fortitude to confront Mexico with being complicit in the mass smuggling by the international criminal smuggling cartels of vast amounts of illicit narcotics, and hundreds to thousands of intending illegal aliens who have been transiting Mexico to reach the US borderline, where the vast majority (90% or more) of those illegal aliens make fraudulent asylum claims to gain entry to the USA. You would have to be a moron not to figure out by now that there are a huge number of people both in Mexico and the USA who have been benefiting both directly and indirectly politically and fiscally from the mass smuggling of drugs and illegal aliens into the USA, while ignoring the other serious criminal activities from murder on down that have become routine along the insecure Mexico/US borderline. That is very evident from the adverse responses to President Trump’s proposed sanctions initiative targeting Mexico, by both Democrat and Republican politicians, big business interests, all sorts of “special interests” and especially the initial reaction by the US stock market. Mexico has entered all sorts of agreements with the USA in the past but has rarely followed through with effective action when it comes to borderline matters. As President Trump has said he will be watching to see what Mexico does in the near future to cut the criminal smuggling routes coming across Mexico to the US borderline, and if Mexican action is not effective, that he will again deploy his proposed sanctions initiative to really get the attention of, and change the attitude of the Government of Mexico.

I know I shouldn’t say this, but my mind turns to it after all the D-Day celebration last week. What if the Mueller probe was the deep state’s last desperate effort to stop the populist steamroller from looting and plundering its bureaucratic fiefs and dissolving its plush academic monasteries? What if the offensive has now failed, and all the best lefty troops were ground up in the Mueller Battle of the Bulge? I know, I know. Don’t get cocky, kid.

It’s not easy being a Democrat, and it’s even more difficult to be a leader in the party, a speaker of the House or the leader of the minority in the Senate. It’s true that hard times can make a money eat red pepper, as the ancient wisdom goes, but Democratic hard times are encouraging a rare run on red pepper.

Are dads’ essential DIY skills in decline? According to new research, millennial dads are less capable than their own dads when it comes to everyday DIY fixes, preferring to rely on professional help instead. A new poll of 1,000 millennial dads and 1,000 baby boomer dads found that when a DIY task needs to be done at home, more than half of millennials prefer to call a professional. And when it comes to emergency “handiness” scenarios, millennial dads fall short in almost every category.

Thus ends what was for months the Great #NeverTrump Primary Hope, in the form of a medium-sized blue state's locally popular, nationally unknown purple governor. Jeb Bush had vouched for him; Jerry Taylor, president of the ex-libertarian Niskanen Center, had dedicated "every fiber" of his "being" toward convincing Hogan to run.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes President Trump's administration is a gateway to fascism. "The idea that it can't happen here is just old-fashioned, my friends,” the former secretary of state warned this weekend during an address at Wellesley College. Her remarks came with a specific reference to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's new book, Fascism: A Warning. How seriously should we take any “warning” written by a former secretary of state who mocked 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney when he cautioned about the growing Russian threat? I am going to say not much.

California wants to look after its people, so it keeps expanding its social safety net. It also wants to welcome all comers and so embraces illegal immigrants and protects them in sanctuary cities. To see how this is working out, visit Skid Row in L.A. or neighborhoods in San Francisco or elsewhere where homeless camps are spreading. Caring for all Californians is made harder by the state importing as many non-Americans as possible. It's almost incredible, but also entirely characteristic, that California lawmakers have now decided to give healthcare free to nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants aged 19 to 25.

Lake Erie and Lake Superior — two of the five that make up the Great Lakes — broke records for water levels this May. Lakes Michigan and Huron could follow suit. Naturally, climate change is getting the blame. “We are undoubtedly observing the effects of a warming climate in the Great Lakes,” says Richard Rood, a University of Michigan climate scientist. But just a few years ago, climate scientists were insisting that a warming climate would cause water levels to decline. In 2008, Science Daily reported on a study that attributed the decline in Great Lakes water levels to global warming.
