WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump unleashed his fury against those who tried to impeach him at a prayer breakfast Thursday, a day after his acquittal by the Senate.“As everybody knows, my family, our great country and your president have been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people," Trump said at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. He spoke from a stage where he was joined by congressional leaders, including Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who led the impeachment charge against him.“They have done everything possible to destroy us and by so doing very badly hurt our nation,”

The Presidents sharp remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast may indicate that he will take the gloves completely off at his noon comments today on the impeachment hoax. Justice requires an accounting for this hoax/treason and Trump may very well start the Justice ball rolling today.

Clearly President Trump has a very good point. The Democrats in Congress are trying to set up a scenario whereby the President’s close advisors would be subpoenaed before them at anytime to explain and openly testify about any of the deliberative processes that take place in the White House, where the President receives a wide series of views by his advisors, including arguments and policy disagreements that routinely take place during those processes up and until the President makes a final decision on the question at hand. Up until now those White House deliberations have always been confidential and covered by the principle of executive privilege. If the Democrats are successful in that effort it will be impossible for the President to confidentially conduct foreign policy, or engage in a confidential manner with foreign leaders anytime the House of Representatives or the Senate is controlled by politicians of the opposing political party. Of course that would only apply to Republican Presidents.

#1 is correct. President Trump's remarks were measured, although his righteous anger was discernible. He had just heard a message about the harmfulness of treating one another with contempt... even worse than hate, said Arthur Brooks. I'd say that hate and contempt are conjoined, they are equally dangerous and harmful. Unmitigated hatred leads to murder, unmitigated contempt leads to mercilessness and eventually revenge. Rip&Tear Pelosi was sitting there wearing a twitchy grin, the kind you get when inside you're about to crack. With her phony sanctimony she has claimed to have Christ-like love in her heart (God is the Judge) and has been praying for POTUS and family. Don't you DARE ask her if she hates the President, she snapped to a reporter a couple of months back. Don't you know how spiritual she is? Right, Lady Macbeth. As my Mom (and probably every Mom) would say, Actions Speak Louder Than Words. When the President stood up to speak and the audience was applauding, the host showed him newspapers with bold headlines: ACQUITTED! which he held up for the audience to see. Then the camera was on Rip&Tear Pelosi. She was clapping, intermittently flapping her hands, gesticulating to Brooks who was next to her. Looked to me like he was trying to ignore her rudeness, like you do when there's something you're paying attention to while the one next to you keeps interrupting and wanting a response. President Trump did NOT "unleash fury", he did not "blast impeachment" or "gloat". I would say he spoke in solemn tonality about what his family, he AND the country have been put through, and as we saw, endured all the way through the State of the Union ceremony: it is, after all, one of our National secular convocations, next to Elections and Inaugurations. President Trump has been attacked and tormented throughout all of these, including Tuesday night; and there was the harridan, seething with hatred AND contempt, having corrupted her and the Democrats and the Never Trumpers to the core. All this culminated in her --as symbol of the Dem Party, not the Congress-- because for the entire SOTU, she demonstrated all the contempt she could muster, and it was a lot, to splatter all over POTUS for the cameras and Trump-haters to enjoy. The question is, will the sanctimonious Pelosi work on getting the giant redwood log out of her eyes, BOTH of them, before continuing her pestiferous attacks on the President?

Still, most Republicans have grudgingly stuck with him, through the revelations of the “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he was heard boasting about sexually assaulting women, and Charlottesville, where he defended white supremacists during a racial clash in the Virginia college town, These lies and distortions AGAIN??!! Perhaps President Trump should release the transcripts of the Access Hollywood tape and his speech in Charlottesville so people can READ THE TRANSCRIPT!!!

The President's voice is hoarse this morning. I felt that he seemed a bit fatigued; for sure the burden of living with the evil Resistance forces has taken a toll on him. He usually doesn't show it, though. We need to be praying for his well-being. May God protect our President, and may He bless our beloved nation. Ramona (the Pest)

God bless President Trump. I was all in because I knew he would cause some waves in corrupt DC, being a brash outsider, but he has gone far beyond my expectations. I salute a guy with more energy than me, much brighter than most, certainly more moral than anyone on the left, a hide tougher than anyone in the media, DC or the leftist world, a better politician than all of them, but most of all I admire his self control. That's right. This President Trump has huge self control. IF almost anyone reading this had been subjected to what this man and his family has had to endure since walking down that escalator, they would have lashed out long before this. 'Vindictive?' They don't want to know what many of us would have done. Their lives would be ruined and at least a few scummy reporters would be needing dental work. You scum leftists threaten him every day, but then you show just how demented and cowardly you are by going after his wife and kids. I hope he does a 1/10 of what many of us would do and expose all of you for the liars and traitors you certainly are.

The Associated Press breaks every rule of unbiased news writing. They include opinions, unsupported “facts,” anonymous sources and, when it comes to Trump, deliberately disparaging terms. I skip their articles when I see them in my paper, which is all too often.

Donald Trump’s chances for reelection in November have never been higher. The latest Gallup poll puts his approval rating at 49 percent, other polls have measured even higher, and he just gave the speech of his life in his 2020 State of the Union address. But watch out. Without Republican control of the Senate in 2020, much less recovering control of the House of Representatives, the impact of a second Trump term will be profoundly diminished.Left-wing billionaires like Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Donald Sussman, James Simons, George Soros, Kenneth Griffin, Stephen Schwarzman, Fred Eychaner, Karla Jurvetson, and Jeff Bezos have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars almost exclusively to Democrats

Many media observers will recall the New York Times’ response to Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in 2016. In their subtle, tacit admission that the paper had covered the election with some bias, publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. and editor Dean Baquet promised to “rededicate” themselves to the fundamental mission of the Times and to bring “fairness” to their coverage.Other mainstream news outlets and journalists issued similar mea culpas. Just about all of them had treated Trump’s campaign and supporters with an attitude of spiteful hilarity. The great irony in the media’s hatred, of course, is that his rise would not have been possible without them and their vain attempt to hijack

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night. But in promising to tell the truth, he accidentally exposed his own doleful (or I should say, Bob Dole-ful) prospects in Tuesday’s opening-gun primary. In his first words of the debate—the moment when candidates are usually the most scripted—Biden confessed, “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.” It was a novel campaign strategy; few candidates ever say, “Vote for me because I’m going to lose here.” If his comments were a brief misstep in an otherwise smooth debate, it would have been one thing.

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.

Ocasio-Cortez later said she had confused a British economist, John Maynard Keynes, with Milton Friedman, who won the 1976 Nobel Prize. John Maynard Keynes—who she intended to refer to—theorized that government spending was linked to economic growth. He was an advocate for increased government expenditures
