DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. — President Donald Trump traveled Monday to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to pay respects to two U.S. soldiers killed Saturday in Afghanistan when a soldier dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire with a machine gun. National security adviser Robert O’Brien told reporters traveling with Trump on Air Force One that the president wrapped up a reelection campaign rally in New Hampshire a bit early so he could visit with the families of the soldiers. He described such moments as “probably the toughest thing he does as president,” along with visiting wounded soldiers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Afghanistan is a basket case that can not be fixed. We had good reason to go there in the first place to get Bin Ladin but, we can not turn it into something it can never be. We should get out but make sure it is within striking distance of our Air Force. If any terrorist attacks come from there again just bomb them back into the stone age. Oh my bad, they are already in the stone age.

This war has gone on too long. We could have won this under a week with our advanced technology and weaponry, but instead decided to fight the war the Afghanistan way. It was their successful strategy with the Russians and we got sucked into the same quagmire with similar results. Much to our shame we stopped winning wars when the military industrial complex used war as a strategy to build wealth. These defense companies created an industry predicated on providing support for a very expensive war machine and became insanely profitable, but at what cost? Our young men and women have been sacrificed to enrich these companies. This has to stop. We must get out of these endless wars. The enemy knows they can be quite easily defeated if victory is our goal, but they are content to have us spending our wealth and our military to be maimed and to die in their lands. This is a win-win situation for them. The mindset for war is a brutal one. The object is to destroy and that should be our only goal. A swift and fierce response does more to deter our enemies than these prolonged exercises in winning the hearts and minds. The history of our enemies is a warring one. It is who they are and we must not be pulled into their mindset of continuous unrelenting war. I am all for bringing our troops home. Enough of bringing these vipers into our environment and expecting anything less than an attack. It is who they are and what they do. How many times does this have to happen before we decide enough is enough. Bring them home.

The most difficult day of my life was meeting our son at Dover. The reverent ceremony is overshadowed by by a grief so intense that it can't be described. For the family, it must have been very comforting to have President Trump there. I have to agree with the previous posters. Get our troops out of that hell hole and if ANYTHING happens, bomb the country into oblivion. It's long past time to start fighting wars to win or don't fight at all.

Yup, Obama said Afghanistan was where he was going to fix the Middle East. Ran on that platform and failed, leaving it to PDT to clean up O's mess. Come to think of it, he left the whole darn world a mess, only to collect millions and and Oscar. What a waste of eight years of our lives. BUT, here come PDT. A gentleman President to the military. A patriot of our country. A man who puts his mouth and gut into the promises he makes. My condolences and prayers for these families. I can't even imagine the pain. Thank you, Mr. President, for taking time to grieve with these folks on our behalf. MAGA!!! KAG!!! TRUMP 2020 AND BEYOND! Let's bring them home!

Get the troops out of Afghanistan, but before we leave destroy everything we placed there that cannot be removed. Burn the Poppy fields, and leave. No one there can be trusted. How many people have died from people who are supposed to be our friends.? Too many.

Trump knows what is important. I am sure that his presence was helpful to the family. I am REALLY pleased that Obama did NOT meet my returning nephew's casket at Dover. The casket was met by an active duty special ops family member who escorted him home. We wouldn't have wanted that slimy liar Obama anywhere near our loved one.

Swarm Detroit to Keep Dead Voters on Rolls

Liberal groups and high-powered New York attorneys swooped into Detroit this week to help the city fight a lawsuit over its voter roll irregularities, which included thousands of deceased individuals appearing on the rolls. The League of Women Voters of Michigan and its Detroit chapter filed a motion to intervene on behalf of Detroit city clerk Janice Winfrey and Director of Elections George Azzouz. Winfrey and Azzouz were sued in December by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group. The officials had ignored PILF's requests to inspect Detroit's voter registrations after the group discovered thousands of ineligible voters on the city's rolls.

Past Presidents in Reelection Years

A new analysis from Gallup shows that Trump's economic numbers would be the envy of his predecessors, as 61 percent of Americans say they are better off than they were three years ago, "a higher percentage than in prior election years when an incumbent president was running." Only 36 percent say they aren't better off. Which is still significantly better than the 52 percent who said they were not better off in 2012—when Barack Obama was reelected for some reason. It's interesting to see that the perception of the economy is very much tied to party identification. In 2020, 89 percent of Republicans

Now that the New Hampshire results are in — and, oh boy, wait for the Nevada vote count! — there are several takeaways that do not necessarily accord with the mainstream media’s “common wisdom.” 1. Polls Do Not Matter Until the Last Few Weeks of an Election. New Hampshire proves something about polling that I have been writing for years: polls do not matter until elections are within four or fewer weeks. The average person has no idea what in the world is going on. Think of your friends and coworkers. If you have astute friends and work among intelligent people, then just think of the kids

Sensing a humiliating defeat in the Granite State, Biden’s team announced the former vice president was throwing in the towel before the polls had even closed, spending Tuesday evening at a campaign launch party in Columbia, SC, about 1,000 miles away.

A British man who unknowingly infected nearly a dozen others with the deadly coronavirus has come forward. Steve Walsh contracted the virus while on a business trip to Singapore in late January. He then went to a ski resort in the French Alps, where he unwittingly spread the virus to at least 11 others. At least five Britons who stayed at the resort – including a 9-year-old boy – were infected, as were five people in France. He was also connected to at least one case in Spain, the BBC reported.

MANCHESTER, NH -- Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont narrowly edged former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg to claim victory in New Hampshire's Democratic presidential primary. But the biggest winner in Tuesday's contest - the first primary in the White House race - may well be Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who came in a strong third. Klobuchar finished far ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are limping out of New Hampshire facing serious questions about the future of their campaigns. "We love you New Hampshire," Klobuchar stressed in her primary night speech. "Because of you, we are taking this campaign to Nevada.

ROCHESTER, N.H.—Like last week’s muddled Iowa caucus, tomorrow’s New Hampshire primary may reveal as much about the limits of the leading Democratic candidates as it does their strengths. The results from Iowa, polls in New Hampshire, and surveys of Democrats beyond those states all point toward the same conclusion: So far, none of the candidates has built a coalition that reaches broadly across the party. Instead, each is confined to a distinct niche of support that is too narrow to establish a commanding advantage in the race. That could guarantee a lengthy war of attrition for the nomination—and possibly even a brokered convention—as the leading contenders divide the Democratic

After 2016, the Democratic establishment would have been justified in getting out of the business of presidential politics. It swung so strongly behind Hillary Clinton that it discouraged any serious contenders from getting in the race. Her competition was a motley collection of people who didn’t get the message or didn’t care — including a no-hope socialist from Vermont named Bernie Sanders. Because politics abhors a vacuum, Sanders became the anti-Hillary candidate and the leader of a movement that four years later threatens to take over the Democratic Party.

DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H. — Former New York City Michael Bloomberg won the votes of a tiny New Hampshire community that barely hung onto its tradition of being among the first to cast ballots in the presidential primary. Dixville Notch’s five residents cast their ballots just after the stroke of midnight Tuesday in the first 2020 Democratic presidential primary vote in the nation. Bloomberg received three write-in votes, one from a Republican and two from Democrats. The remaining votes went to Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders.

Instead, he says it will likely go to one of the progressive candidates on the roster. "I'd say he's probably the most likely one to have a chance at beating Donald Trump, but I don't see Joe getting the nomination, I just don't see him getting there," Ryan told CNBC at the annual Milken Conference in Abu Dhabi.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

Prosecutors initially sought a sentence of up to nine years in prison, but the Justice Department stepped in and said it would pursue a lesser penalty for Stone."We’re not going to take our options off the table.

As my colleague Nick Arama reported here, it was a great night for Trump. With 97% of the New Hampshire primary results in, the President is at 85.7%. In other words, he’s now in Reagan territory. And Tuesday’s Republican turnout, currently around 120,000, far exceeds that of any other incumbent president seeking reelection. Although this is certainly good news, Republicans shouldn’t get too cocky because the Democrats had a very good night as well. The most updated figures (97%) show that 283,440 Democratic votes had been cast. Based on that number, 100% would bring it to approximately 292,200, which is significantly higher than Democratic turnout in 2016
