Philip Johnston Follow 6 November 2018 • 9:30pm The President's rhetoric is grotesque, but would we really criticise his policies? Let’s get the obligatory caveats out of the way from the outset. Donald Trump’s invective about the caravan of central American migrants winding its way through Mexico towards the US border is grotesque. His heady delight in the “beautiful sight” of a delivery of barbed wire to the frontier to keep them out was reminiscent of Robert Duvall’s air cavalry colonel character in Apocalypse Now! – “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.” We are supposed to find that chilling and deranged, not the sort of thing the leader of the free world might come up with. Of course, the president was ramping up the rhetoric...

close Video Breaking down the fallout from the Trump-Putin summit Liberal media have a meltdown over Trump's Putin tactics; panel reacts on 'The Ingraham Angle.' President Trump bungled the Helsinki press conference. Of that there is no question. But were his comments treasonous, as former CIA chief John Brennan said? Or was it, as John McCain thundered, “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory?" Trump’s critics responded with customary vitriol and excess, attacking the president in such extreme terms that his supporters only dig in even deeper. Democrats and never-Trumpers cannot help themselves; over the past two years, the public has grown weary of the non-stop, five-alarm fires, and they have tuned out. To be sure, President Trump missed an opportunity to publicly and sternly warn Russian President Vladimir Putin against interfering in future U.S. elections. Just as importantly, he never articulated why it was crucial … [Read more...] about Outrage over Trump, Putin Helsinki meeting – Did we expect president to call Putin a liar on global TV?
The Democratic Party has lost ground with likely voters in battleground districts across the United States after weeks of party members and leaders pushing an agenda of ending all immigration and border enforcement. For the past couple of weeks, House and Senate Democrats have reacted to President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy at the U.S.-Mexico border, where all border crossers are being criminally prosecuted, with outrage.In one instance, Democrats falsely blamed Trump for an Obama era photo of child border crossers sleeping in detainment facilities, as Breitbart News noted. In another case, Democrats were protesting the wrong Department of Homeland Security (DHS) facility in Texas. Breitbart News’s Neil Munro noted that House and Senate Democrats launched a “shame campaign” against Border Patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. While the Democrats’ outrage over Trump’s increased border enforcement has been … [Read more...] about CBS/YouGov Poll: Democrats Lose Ground in Midterms from Outrage over Trump’s Border Enforcement
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration on Monday defended its hardline immigration policy at the U.S.-Mexico border as criticism mounted over detained immigrant parents being separated from their children, including video of youngsters sitting in concrete-floored cages. While Democrats blasted such treatment as “barbaric” and some Republicans also voiced concerns, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said the administration was only strictly enforcing immigration law. “This administration did not create a policy of separating families at the border. ... What has changed is that we no longer exempt entire classes of people who break the law,” she told reporters at a White House briefing. The family separations result from Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy that provides for the arrest of all adults caught trying to enter the United States illegally, including those seeking asylum. While parents are held in jail, … [Read more...] about Amid outrage over children, White House defends immigration policy
