The Truth Behind the Trump StormThe Truth Behind the Trump Storm

Kay Hymowitz, City Journal
The U.S. may want to welcome low-skilled workers to do the jobs “Americans won’t do” and to help them in the early years of assimilation. But the prospect of a multi-generational proletariat class, hovering near the poverty line and dependent on government help, is probably not what most Americans had in mind.

Vann Newkirk, The Atlantic
On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated. In response, a week later President Lyndon B. Johnson scrambled to sign into law the Fair Housing Act, a final major civil-rights bill that had languished for years under the strain of white backlash to the civil-rights movement.

1. There are few filters between President Donald Trump's mind and mouth. That is his appeal and his weakness. It is very common that a person's strengths are also weaknesses. I wish Trump's tweets and comments were as forthright -- as un-P.C. -- as they are now but stated in a sophisticated way. I also wish that cheesecake were not fattening. But just as cheesecake comes with sugar, Donald Trump comes with unsophisticated rhetoric. People are packages, not a la carte menus.

One day it’s all sun and sycophantic fun on one of the president’s fancy golf courses, where you’re telling yourself that to marvel at his putts and swoon over his swing are small prices for influence and will pay off in the end. The next you’re in the middle of a surreal feud among your fellow Republicans about whether he used “shithole” or “shithouse” to describe poor countries of dark-skinned people, and you look like a sellout and fool for having thought and said better about him.

Note to Democrats: Shutdowns Are For LosersNote to Democrats: Shutdowns Are For Losers

Bill Scher, Politico
Such was the logic employed by Ted Cruz and the House Freedom Caucus when they thought Americans would appreciate their efforts to defund Obamacare. At the time, both the health care law and the president who signed it had approval ratings in the 40s. Yet the public recoiled at the tactic of holding the government hostage. President Barack Obama held his ground, Republican poll numbers tanked, and the congressional Republican leadership caved.

Fourth Time May Not Be the Charm on Funding, DACAFourth Time May Not Be the Charm on Funding, DACA

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 06:24:20 -0600

James Arkin, RealClearPolitics
For the fourth time in the last four months, Republicans hope this week to pass a short-term patch to fund the government temporarily and skirt a shutdown deadline at midnight Friday. But that plan leaves two key issues unresolved: an agreement on funding the government for the rest of the fiscal year, and any bipartisan solution for DACA, the Obama administration executive order protecting young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, which President Trump rescinded, effective in early March.

"Does this concern you at all?" asks a tart email message from a Trump supporter who wonders why the mainstream media doesn't take a closer look at allegations that the Justice Department's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election has been tainted by bias.

In an account published Saturday, Grace told’s Katie Way that when she and Ansari got back to his apartment after a dinner out, Ansari kept trying to initiate sex, despite her physical and verbal indications that she wasn’t interested. At one point, she says she told him, “I don’t want to feel forced because then I’ll hate you, and I’d rather not hate you.” At first, he responded well, saying, “Let’s just chill over here on the couch.” But then, she says, he pointed to his penis with the expectation of oral sex.

Time to Put Kim Jong Un on His HeelsTime to Put Kim Jong Un on His Heels

Sen. Ted Cruz, Washington Post
President Trump’s November decision to designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism — in response to legislation I introduced that passed in Congress last year — was more than just a symbolic move. The administration has not only plugged holes in America’s sanctions regime against Pyongyang, but it has also established a decisive break from the policy failures of past administrations. It’s now time to seize the initiative, put Kim Jong Un on his heels and set conditions on America’s terms.

Xavier Becerra, NYT
One of the most brazen attacks on the rule of law by the Trump administration — and we’ve seen many — came last week after the Interior Department opened up 90 percent of America’s offshore waters to drilling for oil and gas, and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke arbitrarily gave Florida a free pass.

It was supposed to be the worst of times: an age of foolishness, a season of darkness, and a winter of despair. According to the experts, the presidency of Donald J. Trump would “cause the stock market to crash and plunge the world into recession,” threaten “the planet’s health and safety,” bring “fascism” to America, and maybe even “get us all killed.”

The problem for Republicans in Congress working on a deal to legalize hundreds of thousands of young immigrants: They took President Trump literally. Members of Congress (most notably Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin, who negotiated the deal Trump panned in Thursday’s meeting) took Trump at his word and attempted to address his stated concerns.

The first opportunity for a successful end of the Second Civil War, between President Trump and the incumbent political class, has been squandered by the Democrats. Nothing could be done until Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan accepted that they could no longer pretend to be happy neutrals in the mortal combat between Trump and the Democrats in Congress, waiting to see whether Trump would be impeached or not ...
