Trump Picks Stellar, Qualified Jurist for Scalia Supreme Court Seat. Left Goes Bonkers!

Blind opposition from Democrats undercuts any argument against Gorsuch!

President Trump nominates Neil Gorsuch for U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday evening.

The late Justice Scalia, above, was a mentor of Gorsuch who replaces him on the court.
Gorsuch praised Scalia's approach in scholarly lectures.
Gorsuch Background: His mother was Reagan's head of the Environmental Protection Agency. He was Phi Beta Kappa at Columbia University, was a classmate of Obama's at Harvard Law School where he was a Harry S. Truman scholar and a Marshall scholar at Oxford University.

In consideration for a position on the Federal Bench Gorsuch received the American Bar Associations highest rating of well qualified. He received unanimous voice votes for confirmation by the U.S. Senate in 2006. NO opposition by Democrats!

Democrats Blind Opposition Without Principle or Merit

Of course none of Gorsuch's high qualifications matter to Democrats now. They have become the instant party of NO! Proof of which comes from the instant protest began outside the U.S. Supreme Court the moment Gorsuch was nominated. Professionally printed signs with Gorsuch's name were quickly distributed (signs with the names of other potential nominees were quickly stashed for later). Other signs with "OPPOSE" and "STOP" left the name blank and protesters were asked to write in Gorsuch. This is the extent of the protesters thoughtfulness on this important issue.

Rent-a-mob ready to go at Supreme Court with fill in the blank signs
opposing whoever Trump nominated!
And just as Trump was speaking, the left wing echo machine started up. The talking points in opposition to Trump's nominee had been prepared well in advance:

(fill in the blank) hates women, gays and minorities.
(fill in the blank) is for big business and against the environment.
(fill in the blank) is "extreme and dangerous."
(fill in the blank) is "outside the mainstream."
STOP (fill in the blank)!

These blind, reflexive obstructionists have proven the vacuity of their cause. They deserve no consideration for their baseless, idiotic views. Yet, Democrats will champion their empty headed cause. What choice do they have? Dems sold their soul a long time ago. They have no principle upon which to stand and they've proven it again tonight!

Democrats in Senate Continue Unprecedented Obstruction of Trump Nominees w/ Hearing Boycott

Imagine if the GOP had done this to Obama's cabinet nominees!

On Obama's first day in office he had 7 of his cabinet nominees confirmed. Ten days after Trump took office he has two. The recent fracas about a rogue Obama appointee at the Department of Justice refusing a lawful order is just more Dem manufactured chaos made possible by the transparently political delay.

On Tuesday, Dem Senators boycotted hearings that would have enabled a final vote in the U.S. Senate for two nominees. Doing so prevented a quorum which is required. Such tactics are unprecedented and open the way for all out legislative warfare. If only weak kneed GOP Senators like McCain and Graham had the stomach to fight back!

From the Washington Times:
Senate Democrats on Tuesday boycotted a critical markup of President Donald Trump’s nominations to lead the Treasury and Health and Human Services departments, leaving a senior GOP leader aghast and saying there is “no excuse” for “this type of crap.”

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, Utah Republican, and fellow GOP members said it was unprecedented and “shocking” for Democrats to skip the planned roll calls on Steve Mnuchin for Treasury and Rep. Tom Price at HHS.

Republicans were hoping to advance each of the nominees to the full Senate, so they could be confirmed by the GOP majority and fill out Mr. Trump’s Cabinet.
Mr. Hatch said the boycott, which denied the panel the quorum needed to proceed, showed an alarming degree of disrespect for the nominees.

“This is one of the most disappointing days in my 40 years in the U.S. Senate,” Mr. Hatch said.
He also said Democrats couldn’t “lay a glove” on either nominee during their confirmation hearing, so Democrats should get over their disgust with Mr. Trump and his picks.
Democrats have proven they will do ANYTHING to obstruct the Trump agenda. Will the GOP fight back?

Starbucks to Discriminate Against Americans and Hire 10,000 Refugees Instead

Did you want a dose of left wing crazy with your coffee?

There's a reason President Trump speaks for the "forgotten man." It's because left wingers seem to think first of everyone but actual American citizens. You see that in the immigration debate where the left agonizes over the poor illiterate children being dumped into the U.S. for the American taxpayer to care for and now refugees from Jihadistan.

And they don't mind discriminating against American citizens in the process. Even if those citizens are their customers. From the Daily Mail:
Starbucks announced its plan to hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years in an act of defiance against President Donald Trump. Two days after Trump signed an executive order barring entry to people from seven predominantly Muslim countries, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz outlined company-wide policies it would implement in response to the new administration.

Schultz, who supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton during the campaign, also vowed to offer health care to its employees and support to undocumented immigrants as well as coffee growers in Mexico.
In a statement Schultz blathers on about "the American Dream" yet seems to put American citizens at the back of the line where that dream is concerned. But that's nothing new for the left which has little but disdain for fellow citizens!

SURPRISE! Obama's Promise to Give Trump Room Lasted TEN DAYS!

Hard for the world's biggest narcissist to remain quiet even that long!

Consider this:

Fanning the flames of anti-Trump protests and somehow equating Trump's refugee ban with discriminating on the basis of religion when the order does not include dozens of other majority Muslim countries is further proof Obama intends to continue feeding the straw dogs he used to such weak effect during his failed presidency.

If George Bush had criticized Obama within days of taking office he would have been called a racist. But the same rules don't apply to a left wing narcissist failure.

What an ASS!

Will Dems Who Wailed About Putin Interference in Election Care About Russia Funding U.S. Environmental Groups?

Further proof that the environmental movement is like  a watermelon: green on the outside, red on the inside!

How many weeks did we hear moaning and wailing about Putin trying to influence the U.S. presidential election? Dems who recoiled at Reagan's remarks calling the Soviets an "evil empire" and rebuild America's military suddenly discovered Russia as a strategic foe.

But it would appear Dem's outrage is selective as usual after we learn from this Newsweek report:
[A] Senate report found that the Sea Change Foundation funneled more than $43 million to environmental causes in 2011 -- padding the budgets of ardent anti-fracking organizations like the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Foundation is heavily funded by a Bermuda-based shell corporation with direct ties to Putin and Russian oil interests. The shady firm is currently under indictment for offshore money laundering.

The influence of Russian propaganda and the influx of money funneled from the Kremlin to many of America's most extreme environmental outfits helps explain why anti-fracking attacks continue even though science has confirmed fracking poses no threat to public health.

A five-year study from the Environmental Protection Agency could "not find evidence that [fracking] led to widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States." Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson admitted there hasn't been a single "proven case where the fracking process itself has affected water."

The U.S. Geological Survey and the Groundwater Protection Council both found fracking caused no groundwater contamination. A recently concluded three-year study performed by geologists at the University of Cincinnati also found fracking had no impact on local water supplies.

Clearly, fracking has benefited the United States. It has created millions of jobs, spurred the economy and created a path to energy independence, all without posing a risk to people or the environment.

It seems the only folks left attacking fracking are puppets of the anti-science, anti-American Russian propaganda machine. These people hope that lies about fracking can weaken the United States, dry up the supply of oil and gas, drive up energy costs and force European countries to pour money into Putin's coffers.
In opposing U.S. energy development at nearly every step, radical Democrats (is there any other kind?) are in lockstep with Vladimir Putin and Russian billionaire oligarchs who share the same goals. We're right back to the Cold War when radical Dems openly sided with Russia and attempted to block efforts to win that conflict!

Hollywood Fascism: Actor At Awards Ceremony Urges Protesters to Violence: "We Will Punch People in the Face"

Imagine the outrage if some Trump supporter used a nationwide television program in angry speech inciting violence. Will this actor be held accountable for the violence he incites?

Remember when Sarah Palin was blamed for the Tucson shooting that left six dead and Rep. Gabrielle Gifford (D-AZ) and others critically wounded after it was learned Palin used the political "target" image in campaign communications?

Of course there was absolutely no link between Palin's call to target Democrats for defeat and the shooter Jared Loughner. But that didn't stop Obama and the left calling for Republicans to be civil in political discourse (meanwhile, Obama and the Dems continued with their divisive rhetoric).

Well, what about this?

DAVID HARBOUR: “We will repel bullies, we will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no homes. We will get past the lies, we will hunt monsters, and when we are lost amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will, as per chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face, when they seek to destroy the meek, and the disenfranchised, and the marginalized, and we will do it all with soul, with heart and with joy.”
Remind me again who the bully here is?

This is a continuation of the campaign of hate and violence that is driving anti-Trump protesters to behave like left wing fascists. And you can bet they don't understand the irony between their words and their deeds. Hillary Clinton said the prospect of people not willing to accept the result of the presidential election was "horrifying" and "undemocratic." It might be the only thing she said during the campaign that was true!

With Visible Signs, Trump Affirms Special Relationship with the United Kingdom

Any more special they'll need to exchange Valentines cards!

Trump's first visit by a foreign leader could not have gone any better. Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Trump were arm in arm demonstrating solidarity to the world.

In the Oval Office posing in front of the newly restored bust of Winston Churchill that had been banished by Obama:

To those who thought Trump incapable of being presidential the past week must have come as a shock. But hold on, we're just getting started!

Trump Fulfilling Campaign Pledges with Slew of Executive Orders. And Obama Backers Can't Complain!

Unlike Obama's orders, Trump is directing the Federal Government to OBEY the law, not skirt it!

Surrounded by the mothers of people killed by illegal aliens and Vice President Pence, President Trump (that just sounds SO GOOD to type) on Wednesday signs orders to build the wall using existing legislative authority and to deport criminal illegals and crack down on Sanctuary Cities that defy Federal Law. Text of the order is here.

Border Agents are cheering the news:
“During the previous administration, we had a president that failed to acknowledge the problems on the border. Now, we have a president that not only acknowledges the problems, but is willing to give us the tools needed to address them.”
On Tuesday, Trump signed orders to approve building of Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines pending approval by private builders to use American supplied pipe. These projects have been held up for years despite government studies which showed the pipelines did not pose environmental risks (New York Times report).

Build that Pipeline!
We've already reported that Trump's very first act upon entering the Oval Office on Friday following his Inauguration was the signing of an order to cancel pending Obama regulations to implement ObamaCare.

Wall Street Celebrates DOW 20,000

DOW 20,000!
America is going back to work and even the Stock Market, with so many ties to Obama and Hillary Clinton can't ignore it. Wednesday, the Dow Jones Average crossed the 20,000 point barrier. Since Trump's election, the Dow has soared as well as other indicators of economic well being.

Finally, following Trump's Inauguration, many supporters were physically assaulted, by people who claimed THEY were fascists. Looking past that, Trump supporters shared their joy in moments like this where a waitress at a DC restaurant received a $450.00 tip on a $72.60 bill. The waitress, who happens to be black, must have found the noise about Trump's racist supporters amusing following that!

Meanwhile, Democrats in the U.S. Senate continue to do everything they can to slow walk confirmation of Trump's cabinet nominees. Sen. Charles Schumer, Dem leader in the Senate was cornered by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) who points out that eight years ago Obama's nominees sailed through at the same time Cotton was getting shot at by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Despite that smackdown, Dems continue their blind obstruction of all things Trump!

America is moving forward and Democrats are doing everything they can to stop our progress. We know who they are and what they are. Eight years of this nonsense is ENOUGH!

Hopeful Sign in War on Radical Islam with Trump Call to Egypt's President Al Sisi

Al Sisi took his life in his hands to define and oppose radical Islam. He got no thanks from Obama who resented overthrow of radical Muslim Brotherhood. 

In January 2015 Egypt's President Al-Sisi went to a meeting of top Islamic scholars in Cairo and delivered the speech Obama should have given in that city. In it, Al Sisi challenged leaders of Islam to break free from the radicals who only want death and destruction and called for a "religious revolution" to defeat the radicals.

It was a speech that should have been widely praised by the United States yet Obama could not look past his petulance that the Egyptian people rose up and ousted the radical Muslim Brotherhood which Obama had helped to install to replace longtime U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak. It was Mubarak's ouster which helped set off the war in Syria which gave ISIS a further foothold in the region.

Obama refused to invite Al-Sisi to Washington and kept this potential ally and leader of the most populous Arab country at arms length. That is about to change.

Monday's call by Trump is laying the groundwork for a visit to Washington by Al Sisi. With Trump's focus on defeating radical Islam he won't find a better ally in that fight than the man who bravely called out the terrorists while Obama refused to say the words "radical Islam."

The adults are back in charge and it's just in time!

Vile Lefty Fantasizes About Trump Ten Year Old Son Becoming a Shooter

Assassination fantasy with a ten year old child on Inagural Day. How low can the left go?

Remember that lefties pretend they are the tolerant ones with peace and love in their hearts. Death threats for Trump supporters, even directed at a blind singer forced to withdraw from Inaugural festivities now this....
WASHINGTON TIMES: Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich is taking heat after targeting President Donald Trump’s preteen son in an Inauguration Day tweet.

“Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” Ms. Rich, 35, wrote from her Twitter account Friday amid festivities surrounding Mr. Trump’s swearing-in.

The jab was visible on the writer’s Twitter page for around three hours Friday before Ms. Rich deleted the tweet and set her account to private.

Screenshots of the comment continued to circulate online through Saturday morning, however, spurring condemnation and calls for Ms. Rich’s termination.

“Sick jokes about a 10 year old are classless and go way too far,” opined Twitter user Parker Waters, a self-described photojournalist from New Orleans.

“If you look way, way, up, you can almost see the low road,” Toronto Star columnist Lorrie Goldstein said in a tweet of his own directed toward Ms. Rich.

Barron Trump is not homeschooled, in fact, but attends Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in New York City. He and his mother, Melania Trump, are expected to stay in Manhattan until his semester ends in the spring.
Can you imagine the hell that would have descended had ANY prominent Republican said something similar about Obama's children? But then, the left never holds itself to the same standard they daily demand of others. Sick, twisted and pathetic fools!

Related: Protesters shut down free speech and hurl feces and carry sign saying "your facism is showing" without realizing the irony or hypocrisy. Brownshirts of the left continue to march!

Pop Star Madonna at Women's March: "thought about blowing up the White House!" Imagine the outrage if ANYONE famous on the GOP side had said this about Obama! Will Madonna's words inspire Trump haters already deranged from non-stop vitriol to act? Where's the accountability for Madonna and those on the left who traffic in this kind of verbal violence every single day?

Fascists! Every. Single One. Of. Them!

Bill Clinton Busted by Hillary Checking Out Ivanka Trump

Even on the Inaugural platform with the world watching Bill Clinton can't help himself!

Watch this short clip. Bill certainly has something on his mind:

The moment Hillary catches him. Suitable for framing:

Another reminder why we dodged a bullet when Trump won. Imagine the trouble Bill would get up to if he were back in the White House with time on his hands!

Trump's Inaugural Speech About the People, Not Himself. Liberals Object

Trump also begins fulfilling his campaign promises on day one!

Excerpts of President Trump's Inaugural Address from the official White House web site (back in safe hands again):
TRUMP: Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day. This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation – and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.
Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

We Will Make America Proud Again.

We Will Make America Safe Again.

And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America.
Notice the absence of "I," "me," or "my" which populated the narcissist Obama's speeches. Trump uses "we" referring to "we the people."

It's heresy to the left to challenge the establishment that has grown rich and fat while the poor and minorities suffer and who promise change but never deliver. Speaking for many on the left MSNBC host Rachel Madcow said "‘It was militant, dark, hard to hear." I suppose it was. Actually promising a new way to combat the blight of racism and inner city poverty must be "dark" indeed to the people who have profited from that system so many years!

Keeping His Promise to End ObamaCare, Restore Winston Churchill

Immediately upon arriving to the White House, even before attending the Inaugural Parade President Trump headed to the Oval Office where he signed the Executive Order blocking many of Obama's last minute orders to force Americans to buy ObamaCare.

The Oval Office has had a slight makeover. Gone are those awful red drapes of Obama's and restored is the bust of Winston Churchill Obama banished from the White House in 2009. Note Churchill's pride of place to the left of the President's desk:

The adults are back in charge!

Bye Bye Obama GOOD RIDDANCE. The Damage You've Done is Incalculable. Thank God the Adults Are Back in Charge!

No Class: The ASS in chief even threatens to stick his nose back in the minute Trump does something HE doesn't like!

ASS in Chief!
Eight long years of waiting are finally over. Eight years of one disaster after another in domestic, foreign and national security policy are OVER!

Worst economic performance since the end of World War II. Millions no longer even participating in the labor force. Race relations at an all time low. This is a President who let terrorists, traitors and drug dealers go free but used the IRS to target law abiding Americans.

His policies saw terrorism spread across the globe and horrific attacks inside the United States. Bad guys like Russia, Iran and China free to spread trouble without consequence. And the worst Nobel Prize for Peace EVER given to a man that has seen wars spread while promising to end them. The U.S. currently has thousands of troops BACK in Iraq with hundreds in Syria as well and deployments to Europe of all places including sending Marines this week to Norway. Some peace hunh?

And all the while, a Narcissist in Chief who thinks first, second and third of himself. Speeches littered with "I," "me," and "my" just the most obvious sign of some deep seated pathology.

His legacy of FAILURE will be undone by Trump. But no doubt the pipsqueak ex-President will feel compelled to remind us all frequently why he is such a failure by constantly giving more speeches with I, me and my!

Good riddance. Good bye. GO AWAY!

If Trump Protests Are Genuine Why Do They Have to PAY Protesters? Fascist Fonies!

More evidence that Trump represents REAL America and the left's protests are proof of their OWN ILLEGITIMACY!

The Washington Times reports that contrary to so-called "fact checker" news sites, there is currently an effort underway to pay BIG BUCKS to people trained to disrupt and create violent protests against Trump. Of course it's nothing new as we learned from the Democrat email leaks where Hillary backers engaged in a secret campaign to spark violence at Trump rallies.

People are being offered large monthly stipends and $50 and hour to engage in these faux protests. But they must sign a confidentiality agreement, no doubt to deny they are being paid.

The ads are running in dozens of cities nationwide:

And they call Trump's election illegitimate? Puhlease!

More Highlights Of Mike's America London Tour

You appreciate the United States all the more when you are away. Even a visit to a relatively civilized friend like the United Kingdom!

The following BBC video is the New Year's Eve fireworks on the Thames River in London. As the camera closes in on the London Eye, Mike's America is watching from that front section just to the left of the tree. What a sight!

You see the favorite photo I took from the event in the masthead above. Here are some other photographs of the trip. Mostly, it was a history tour with my favorite subject, Winston Churchill. Highlights of that are displayed below:

Admiralty Arch marks the beginning of the processional route down down The Mall to Buckingham Palace that you see in so many royal events. You don't often get the opportunity walk down this route but the entire area was closed for the New Year's fireworks. But unlike those well orchestrated royal events the entry and exit to the fireworks was chaotic and poorly organized. You would think someone to provide competent direction or at least some signs telling people where to go would be in order. Sadly no.

Sen. John McCain Refused to Traffic in Obama Rumors But Played Key Role in Fake Russian Smear of Trump

Apparently McCain's standards are lowered considerably when it's an attack on a member of his own party!

As candidate for President Senator John McCain, who visited Mike's America in 2007, refused to traffic in the dirt on Obama. He dismissed the birther issue with contempt, told a woman at one rally not to call Obama a "socialist" and rebuked a radio announcer for using Obama's middle name "Hussein."

But when it came to dirt on Donald Trump, McCain dispatched a key aide on an urgent transatlantic trip to clandestinely meet a man who promised to dig the dirt on Trump. Democrats have their fingerprints on this too, as well as a former GOP presidential candidate and Planned Parenthood. But McCain played a key role. (Sources: Daily Mail, Wall Street Journal, Guardian)

Of course NONE of the fabricated story was in any way verifiable but that didn't stop the Trump haters from running with it and getting egg all over their face.

For decades John McCain has cultivated a reputation for being a straight shooter. All that goes out the window with his role in this farce. The little bull dog may have been re-elected by his Arizona constituents last November to serve a 6th term but hopefully it will be his last!

In Breaking Senate Tradition & Attacking Sessions Cory Booker Shows He's Another Empty Suit Left Wing Political Opportunist

But I suppose it plays well to the kook fringe of the left!

Last year Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), nominee for Attorney General in the soon arriving Trump Administration (how good does THAT sound!) sought to award the Congressional Gold Medal to those who participated in the 1965 Voting Rights March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Does this sound like something a racist would do? Sessions partnered in that successful effort with Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) who at the time had the highest praise for Sessions calling the experience "one of my life's greatest moments" and went on to say: “I feel blessed and honored to have partnered with Sen. Sessions in being the Senate sponsors of this important award.” Video.

But when Sessions was nominated to become Attorney General Cory Booker took a different view less than 11 months later. He broke the longstanding tradition whereby sitting Senators do not testify against other sitting Senators in a confirmation hearing. What motivated him? He says “In the choice between standing with Senate norms or standing up for what my conscience tells me is best for our country, I will always choose conscience and country.”

Booker presented no evidence that Sessions was unfit for office. It's just that Booker apparently feels that anyone who is a Republican or Conservative, particularly from the South, must be a racist because they disagree with Booker's far left views on policy.

Booker, the Show Pony

Booker has a reputation of being a show horse, not a work horse in the Senate. Another black man snatched from relative obscurity to help Democrats with their sagging image.

 Prior to his Senate election he was Mayor of Newark New Jersey and left it's black residents, along with everyone else, worse off than when he arrived. He's famous for delivering diapers in a snowstorm after a Tweet reached him of a woman with many children running low. The woman never actually ran out of diapers, she just wondered why her street wasn't plowed three days after a snowstorm. Booker delivered the diapers but how long did it take before the streets were plowed for everyone?

Is there an appetite among Democrats for another empty suit politician with a paper thin resume and a phone book sized ego? Seeing as how they voted for Obama twice one wonders if they want to make that mistake again, especially in the black community whose economic well being took such a hit the last eight years.

I suspect Booker's sad performance is nothing more than a ploy to gain favorable attention from the big media which is the first primary for the Democrat nomination in 2020. Booker knows if he can get them on his side it doesn't matter what he says or does, they will paint him as the next savior. We saw what happened the last time they did that, do we want a repeat?

Democrats Suddenly Discover Importance of Rule of Law In Questioning Trump Cabinet Nominees

Ted Cruz reminds us of how silent Dems were on the subject the past eight years!

I was watching a cross section of the confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate of Trump cabinet nominees. One consistent theme across nearly all the hearings I watched was the Democrats repeated concerns that Trump cabinet officers enforce the law as written and not allow Trump to act unilaterally.

Funny, since Obama declared he had a "pen and a phone" and would go around Congress repeatedly and ignore the law that Democrats were entirely, or nearly so, silent when he did.

Ted Cruz remembers. Here he is in hearings for Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General:

It's great to see Democrats suddenly discover the rule of law and the balance created by the U.S. Constitution. But since they made such a mockery of that for the last eight years a number of dangerous precedents have been set. They have only themselves to blame if Trump decides to "pull an Obama."
