President Donald Trump has Given Us a Path to a Balanced Budget, It’s Pro-Worker, Pro-Family, Pro-Growth

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “In 2017, Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously cajoled House Republicans to produce a budget, warning ‘show me your budget, show me your values.’

She was understood to mean that you can learn about someone’s deepest convictions judging the way in which they spend their money,” Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) writes for Fox News.

Democrats Cry Wolf on Impeachment

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “The impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump is coming down to one big question: Will Democrats, by crying wolf, drown out the more legitimate Republican cry of foul? ‘Foul’ has served as the GOP’s most powerful and honest argument from the first days of these impeachment maneuverings,” Kimberly Strassel writes in The Wall Street Journal.
 
“Democrats broke every standard of due process, transparency and fairness in their House investigation, making a mockery of their constitutional duty.”

3 Things Democrats Can’t Change

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – House Democrats have tried almost everything by this point. They’ve left no stone unturned in their effort to, as Impeachment Manager Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) put it, “send that charlatan in the White House back to the golden throne he came from.” 

That promise came during his supposedly impartial impeachment probe, by the way.

Watch: House Democrats tell one story. Their evidence tells another.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s been quite the week here in Washington! It’s finally the weekend, but here in the Senate, you wouldn’t know it.

President Donald Trump, 3 years of fighting for Americans

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Americans are sick of the Swamp. The numbers prove it. By a stunning 40-percent margin, independents say impeachment is “more important to politicians than it is to me.” A nearly identical number say that it’s “more important to the media than it is to me.”

It’s simple: Americans want results, not more partisan theater. The 2016 election should have been a wakeup call to career politicians and the Beltway establishment. Instead, they ignored the memo. They’d rather undo an election than fix their behavior.

Dishonest Impeachment Case

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Friday, January 24th, 2020, marked the end of House Democrats’ 3-day presentation of their historically weak Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. Saturday, the President had chance to respond to Democrats’ dishonest case. 
 
As expected, the media is going the extra mile to prop up Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) performance this week. Their hope, much like Schiff’s argument itself, is that if you repeat a lie enough, people might soon forget you don’t have any actual evidence for it.
