"Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right"

True but citing them does reveal hypocrisy in many cases, Presidents criticize the other branches of government all the time, but how those criticisms are reported is often more revealing that what was said.

Truly Amazing!

The nattering nabobs of the left are vilifying Trump while conveniently forgetting this speech by their beloved Bill Clinton in 1995.

1984?

CNN reported yesterday that sales of the book "1984" were on the rise since Trump's election, it is interesting to me that the left uses "1984" as an example for government control of all aspects of life taken to the extreme, a la Trump, yet it is the same people on the left who keep clamoring for a strong central government model over a more decentralized states rights form of government.  I think the framers of the US Constitution had it right (Alexander Hamilton not withstanding), i.e. limit and decentralize the power of the central government.

Who to believe?

Headline in today's New York Times:  "Mexican President Considers Canceling Trip to U.S." ;  Daily Caller Headline:  "Trump Threatens to Cancel Mexico Meeting If They Won't Pay for the Wall".

The left will never give up

First it was the Jill Stein recount in three states Trump won that went nowhere but raised a lot of money for Stein and the Green Party; then it was the electoral college and trying to get electors to change their votes; now it is the Russians who apparently are so powerful they were able to change voters minds and get their man elected; what is next?  We will soon find out, or will we?  Trump takes office on the 20th of January and he will control the government, but that will not stop the left and their lap dogs in the lame stream media from constantly attacking his credibility.  Everything Trump does in the next 100 days will be attacked by the left and their media partners, after that things will calm down somewhat while they gear up for the 2018 mid-term elections and their mantra will be to elect enough of their candidates in Congress to bring impeachment proceedings against Trump.  Pretty much the same thing happened after the 2000 election decided by the Supreme Court, Bush 43 was attacked relentlessly by the media and called names by the left, they love to label Republicans Nazis, racists and every other degrading term they can think of because they cannot win a civilized argument.  Because Democrats could not get control of Congress they were left to drift in the wilderness of their ideology until 2006 by then they were concentrating on electing Hilary Clinton in 2008.  But they never stopped taking pot shots at Bush blaming him for everything that happened in the world from natural disasters to economic failures, they have never stopped blaming Bush he is even responsible for the failures of Obama and they will never stop attacking Trump.
