America First

Days of establishment Republicans who oppose people’s America First agenda numbered

Michelle Moons, Update: Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon reacted to the news of Jeff Flake’s impending retirement. (Washington, DC) Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced on Tuesday that he will not run for re-election in 2018. A late August poll showed Flake primary challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, a former Arizona

Trump Changed the Party of Reagan to the Party of ‘America First’

In a New York Times op-ed, R.R. Reno explains how Donald Trump has redefined the Republican Party from its Reagan-era conservatism to its new populist, nationalist “America First” focus. As Reno notes, the old Reagan Republican orthodoxy was focused on “small government, an internationalist foreign policy, free trade, and moral and religious conservatism.” That orthodoxy

Trump’s State of the Union speech is going to be wild #SOTU

Michael Goodwin, In advance of President Trump’s first State of the Union speech, random busybodies are urging him to tone it down. One adviser from the bleachers suggests he be “humble and inclusive.” Sweet, but I’m betting humble pie is not on the president’s menu. On the contrary, Tuesday night in the Capitol is likely

Obama’s Army Of 30,000 Anti-Trump Activists

Michael Snyder | The American Dream, This army has already been heavily involved in many of the protests and riots. Throughout American history, most ex-presidents have chosen to move away from Washington D.C. once their terms have ended, and the vast majority of them have tried very hard not to interfere with their successors. Unfortunately,

America First: An Unconventional President? #MAGA

Dan Celia, Every day for the past 15 days, we have seen President Donald Trump place a priority on keeping his campaign promises to the American people, from creating jobs to tightening immigration, cutting regulatory burdens and appointing strong leaders to his cabinet. He has also—perhaps most importantly—set out to change the face of the

‘America First’ Is Not a Threat but a Promise

Michael Barone, “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first,” Donald Trump proclaimed in his inaugural address. As has been his habit, he added to the prepared text the word “only” and employed the rhetorical device of repetition by repeating “America first.” The phrase sticks in some critics’ craws. It

Trump’s America First Policy Is Conservative Policy

Terry Jeffrey, “My goal,” said candidate Donald Trump, “is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations.” He spoke these words last April in a prepared address delivered not at a massive rally in a basketball arena, but before a few Washington insiders at the Mayflower Hotel. After this speech, Inside-the-Beltway elitists

Pat Buchanan: Trump, America for the Americans!

As the patriotic pageantry of Inauguration Day gave way to the demonstrations of defiance Saturday, our new America came into view. We are two nations now, two peoples.        Though bracing, President Trump’s inaugural address was rooted in cold truths, as he dispensed with the customary idealism of inaugurals that are forgotten within a

Graham: “I Don’t Know What America First Means”

Justin Holcomb, Lindsey Graham was not in complete agreement with President Donald Trump’s inauguration speech on Friday, saying that he “doesn’t know what America first means.” “To the president, if America first is a throwback to the 20’sand 30’s isolationism when it was first used as a phrase, the world would deteriorate even quicker, if

President Trump’s America First Equals Job Creation and Economic Growth

Paul Dykewicz, President Donald Trump vowed in his inaugural speech, following his oath of office Friday, to pursue policies that would spur economic growth, create jobs and protect American interests. An effect likely would be to boost demand for crude oil, which rose in price more than 2% on Inauguration Day, with part of the

Mainstream media screams in pain as Trump becomes president #SoreLosers

Dan Gainor, President Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday was a time of historic transition. It was not just the transfer of power from Washington back to the citizens, as explained by the 45th president. It also marked the transfer of power from the news media to Trump. And journalists weren’t happy about it. Trump did what

The Age of the Lion: Donald Trump Puts America First

Virgil, A lion isn’t always beloved, but it is always respected, even feared.  In his inaugural address today at the Capitol, President Donald Trump roared, and decades’ worth of vapid orthodoxy melted away.    As Trump said, his inaugural ceremony was more than a transfer of power from one administration to another, or from one
