President Trump Blasts NATO Allies, Says “Germany is Totally Controlled by Russia.” (VIDEO)

THIS IS WHY TRUMP WON, HE MAKES SO MUCH SENSE TO SO MANY AMERICANS AND SAYS WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN THINKING FOR YEARS …

President Donald Trump calls out NATO allies, especially Germany, and says … so we are spending all this money to protect you from Russia and you are making billion dollar energy deals with Russia? We are protecting Germany, France and other countries but you are paying Russia billions. Trump went on to say that hardly seems appropriate.

We have been paying all this money for years and no other President wanted to confront the issue. Trump stated that this was unfair the the United States and its tax payers.

Trump said, “Germany is totally controlled by Russia.”

Democrats Questioning Whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren Can Take on President Trump in 2020 … Win Back the Rust Belt?

CAN POCAHONTAS TAKE ON TRUMP?

From The Hill comes the following as Democrats question whether Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren can really take on President Trump in the 2020 elections. The question is, can a far-LEFT Progressive who calls for the abolitionism of ICE really win back blue-collar Democrats from President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Can a liberal Democrat elite win or even come close in a southern state? The answer is likely no on both accounts. There lies the problem for the Democrats. The problem is that the Democrat party has gone too far LEFT and is being pushed off the cliff by the likes of self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Now you have the likes of Warren, a progressive made from the same cloth as a possible challenger to Trump to change the minds of the blue collar Dems in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Hardly. In fact, Democrats might just lose the “rust belt” forever.

Elizabeth Warren

Can Elizabeth Warren win back blue-collar Democrats from President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania?

It’s a question many Democrats are pondering as Warren — one of the leading contenders for her party’s presidential nomination, if she chooses to run in 2020 — goes back and forth with the president over immigration and other issues.

Warren (D-Mass.) has shown an ability to rally and excite progressives, she’s a proven fundraiser and she has policy bona fides from her work in the Senate.

Yet there are creeping doubts among some Democrats that she’s the best candidate to take on Trump.

Some worry the former Harvard professor will have a tough time winning back the Rust Belt centrists and independents who abandoned Hillary Clinton and Democrats for Trump.

“I just can’t see a blue-collar, Rust Belt guy voting for her,” said one Democratic strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “I think the party needs to be realistic about that.”

“I just can’t see a blue-collar, Rust Belt guy voting for her,” said one Democratic strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “I think the party needs to be realistic about that.”

Some Democrats almost certainly remain shellshocked from the last election after Trump’s surprise win. He became the first Republican to win the states of Pennsylvania and Michigan in a presidential election since 1988 and the first Republican to win Wisconsin since President Reagan in 1984.

If Democrats don’t retake those states in 2020, their chances of winning the Electoral College will fall.

President Trump Nominates Federal Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

TRUMP NOMINATES KAVENAUGH TO THE SCOTUS …

Last night President Donald Trump nominated judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, to replace the out-going Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavanaugh  was a federal appeals court judge in Washington and by all accounts widely respected in legal circles. As stated at NR, Judge Kavanaugh, 53 years old, has compiled an outstanding record during his twelve years on the federal court of appeals in DC . President Trump praised his nominee as a judge with “impeccable credentials” and said he is “considered a judge’s judge.” Now comes the brutal confirmation process from the LEFT. Democrats, the MSM and the LEFT would not have been happy with any SCOTUS pick from Trump. As it was, they were protesting the SCOTUS pick before they even knew who it was.

President Donald Trump on Monday nominated Brett Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge in Washington, to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Trump made the announcement shortly after 9 p.m. ET at the White House, where he was joined by Kavanaugh and his family. NBC News broke the story shortly before the president made his choice public.

“What matters is not a judge’s personal views, but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the Constitution require,” Trump said in the prime-time announcement from the East Room. “I am pleased to say I have found, without doubt, such a person.”

“It is my my honor to announce that I will nominate that I will nominate Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court,” Trump added.

Kavanaugh then emerged, along with his wife, Ashley, and two young daughters.

Trump praised his nominee as a judge with “impeccable credentials” and said he is “considered a judge’s judge.”

Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

Judge Kavanaugh has been selected to fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom he clerked — along with Neil Gorsuch — 25 years ago. A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Kavanaugh has dedicated his career to public service. He worked for several years in the Office of Independent Counsel under Ken Starr and then for five years in the White House of President George W. Bush, first in the White House counsel’s office and then in the role of staff secretary. During an interlude in private practice, he headed the Federalist Society’s Religious Liberties Practice Group and wrote two pro bono Supreme Court amicus briefs in support of the cause of religious liberty.

Kavanaugh is a lector at his Catholic parish, where he also coaches his daughters’ CYO basketball teams. He also volunteers with Catholic charities and teaches and mentors in local schools. He is as fit off the court as he is on it: The former captain of his high-school basketball team runs regularly and has won his court’s annual 5-K five times.

Now that President Trump has nominated a second justice to the Supreme Court, the LEFT will be whipped up into a lather even more than before. No justice that Trump would have nominated is okay to the LEFT because it was not Hillary Clinton who did so. As a shudder to even contemplate such an act. But as Barack Obama reminded Republicans when he was elected, “elections have consequences.” .

The New Norm … The Left Needs to Face Reality: Trump is Winning

TRUMP IS WINNING!!!

From Michael Goodwin of the New York Post, ‘Trump is winning.’ As the LEFT loses their mind with there never ending, all consuming resistance of Trump they have failed to notice the obvious, the economy is great, black unemployment at all time lows, Hispanic unemployment at all time low, female unemployment at all times low, consumer confidence is through the roof, the Trump tax cuts have worked, the Mueller witch hunt has gone no where, the DOJ’s IG report supported a Comey firing, polls show parents are most to blame for minors crossing the border not Trump, the polls are also increasingly trending upward for President Trump. Add to this Trump has already appointed one SCOTUS justice and is about to do another. Let us not forget Trump’s historic meeting with the North Korean leader and a possibility for a denuked Korean peninsula. As the LEFT loses their mind, Trump continues to win and is getting more and more popular. And we wonder why the Left has nothing left but screaming.

With all of this Trump winning, America is winning. So one has to wonder just what Democrats and the LEFT are resisting?

Trump Thumbs up

To understand the madness gripping American leftists, try to see the world through their eyes. Presto, you’re now part of the raging resistance.

Like the Palestinians who mark Israel’s birth as their nakba, or tragedy, you regard Donald Trump’s 2016 victory as a catastrophe. It’s the last thing you think of most nights, and the first thing most mornings.

You can’t shake it or escape it. Whatever you watch, listen to or read, there are reminders — Donald Trump really is president.

You actually believe the New York Times is too nice to him, so you understand why a Manhattan woman urged a reporter there to stop covering Trump to protest his presidency.

And where the hell is Robert Mueller? He was supposed to save us from this nightmare — that’s what Chuck Schumer banked on. Well?

You spend your tax cut even as you rail against the man who made it happen. And you are pleased that cousin Jimmy finally got a job, though you repeat the daily devotional that Barack Obama deserves credit for the roaring economy.

And now this — Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring, and Trump gets another Supreme Court pick. The court might tilt right for the rest of your life. He’s winning.

NOOOOOOOOO!!!

The polls and shifting tide of sentiment is favoring President Donald Trump.

Whether it’s because of Trump’s quick reversal and/or the left’s overreaction, polls are capturing the president’s rising fortunes. One survey showed most Americans were not nearly as sympathetic to the illegal border crossers as the media.

I think it’s terrible about the kids getting split up from their parents. But the parents shouldn’t have been here,” a Minnesota woman told the Times.

Another poll shows Trump with 90 percent support among Republicans, matching the backing of President George W. Bush after 9/11.

And his support is broadening. A Harvard CAPS/Harris poll showed his approval rating hitting 47 percent, a two-point gain in one month driven by a 10-point swing among Hispanic voters and a four-point gain among Democrats.

Pollsters attributed the rise to the strong economy and that a whopping 75 percent approved of the president’s decision to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Finally, a Pew finding about Trump supporters upends stereotypes: Just 31 percent are white men without college degrees, while 66 percent are college graduates, women or nonwhites.

President Trump Meets With Key Senators Ahead of His Nomination for New Supreme Court Justice

RED STATE DEMOCRAT SENATORS IN A TOUGH PLACE FOR SCOTUS VOTE …

As reported at CNN, President Donald Trump met with key senators at the White House on Thursday ahead of President Trump’s nomination of the next Supreme Court Justice.  Trump met with three red-state Senate Democrats who are all facing tough re-election fights this year in states that Trump won easily in the 2016 elections: Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. Trump won West Virginia, Indiana and North Dakota, 68.6% – 26.5%57.2% – 37.9% and 64.1% – 27.7%, respectively. These Democrat Senators are between a rock and a hard place. President Trump has already begun going to states with important Senate elections in 2018 and telling the voters he needs more GOP Senators to pass his agenda and continue to mane America great again. All three of these Senators voted in favor of President Trump’s previous SCOTUS nominee Neil M. Gorsuch. The vote is expected to be prior to the 2018 midterm elections which means if these Senators hgave any hope of winning, they will have to vote in favor of Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, or face a sure loss this November.

President Trump also met with moderate, pro-choice Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins, of Maine, as well as Chuck Grassley of Iowa. All, also voted in favor of Gorsuch. President Trump is putting his ducks in a row and making sure he has the votes. However, what type of pressure will Democrat Senate Majority Leader  Schumer put on Democrats to resist Trump’s nominee, no matter who it is?

SCOTUS

President Donald Trump met with key senators at the White House on Thursday as the administration goes into a full-court press to nominate and confirm a new Supreme Court justice before the midterm elections next fall.

Trump met with three red-state Democrats who are all facing tough re-election fights this year: Sens. Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly, of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp, of North Dakota. The meetings came a day after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he’ll retire on July 31. The White House plans to nominate a new justice by July 9, CNN reported earlier Thursday.

Trump also met with Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, Susan Collins, of Maine, and Chuck Grassley, of Iowa. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump’s team also talked with a dozen other senators.

“Tonight President Trump met with Senators Grassley, Collins, Murkowski, Manchin, Donnelly, and Heitkamp to discuss the Supreme Court vacancy,” Sanders said in a statement. “The President’s team also talked with more than a dozen other Senators today as part of ongoing outreach to get views and advice from both sides of the aisle on this important nomination.”

All three Democratic senators are facing tough votes when Trump nominates a replacement for Kennedy. Their states went overwhelmingly for Trump in 2016 and a vote against the President’s nominee to the court could end up costing them votes from Trump supporters they would have needed to stay in office.

Heitkamp, who was previously praised by Trump as a “good woman” before he campaigned against her in North Dakota on Wednesday, said following the meeting that she’s still willing to hear him out on his court choice.
“Political speeches are just that, but the next day, I’m ready to get to work. As I said, if the President wants to meet with me, I’m ready to participate and advocate for North Dakota. And that’s exactly what happened today,” she said.

As Politico reports, if Trump nominates a woman to the SCOTUS, will that be a game changer? Will it really matter? Female justices can be pro-life too. President Trump said that his nominee will come from his previous released list of 25. This means that Democrats cannot whine about Trump rushing too fasy because they already had the list and would have been previously vetted when Gorsuch was chosen.

No matter whom President Donald Trump picks for the Supreme Court this time around, the nominee is almost certain to come under withering liberal attack as a grave threat to women’s rights. Several conservatives close to the White House, however, say they know just how to blunt that looming assault: Pick a woman for the job.

Of the 25 people on Trump’s public list of potential nominees, six are women. Four — 10th Circuit Judge Allison Eid, 6th Circuit Judge Joan Larsen, Court of Appeals of the Armed Forces Judge Margaret Ryan and 7th Circuit Judge Diane Sykes — were on lists released during the 2016 presidential campaign. Two — 7th Circuit Judge Amy Barrett and Georgia Supreme Court Justice Britt Grant — were added last November.

Justice Anthony Kennedy handed President Donald Trump and the Republicans a major midterm gift by retiring now. Maybe he thinks this is a make up for all of the swing vote decisions that he made when he sided with the liberals on the court. Justices Kennedy’s decision to retire has put further pressure on the other US Senate races like in Missouri, Montana and Florida where Democrat Sens. Claire McCaskill, Jon Tester and Bill Nelson find themselves in tough battles. These three Democrat Senators did not vote for Gorsuch. Trump won these states in the 2016 elections by 19.1, 20.5 and 1.3 percentage points, respectively.

Make no mistake, the Democrats will be viscous and vile this time around. As if they had been civil in the past. The comical part about this is that Democrats are demanding that trump pick a comparable nominee similar to moderate Justice Kennedy. Ha, like that would have occurred had Hillary Clinton won the election.  Elections do have consequences and to all the never-Trumpers, with two SCOTUS pics in less than a year, you need to sit down and shut up at this point. With regards to Democrats demanding that Trump pick a moderate like Kennedy, do you honestly think that when Reagan picked Kennedy, he ever thought that Kennedy would side so much with the liberals on the Court?
