Maya Dillard Smith, a black woman, quit her job last week. Was bigotry and harassment to blame for her quitting? Sort of. I’ll let her explain what happened: I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered. My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer. So she began asking questions about President Obama’s transgender mandate forcing schools to allow
For weeks the media have been hounding Donald Trump over whether he had fulfilled a pledge to donate millions of dollars to veterans groups. This week, Trump held a press conference to put the issue to rest. Flanked by vets, Trump read a list of dozens of groups he financially supported. He said he had not released the details because he did not want the attention, yet the media demanded details. By the way, where is the media frenzy over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal? An Associated Press Fact Check strongly suggests she has been lying to the American people. Why
The Clinton campaign released a new attack ad against Trump yesterday, accusing him of cheering the housing collapse in order to buy property inexpensively. This was a coordinated assault with Clinton surrogates in key states also making the charge that Trump profited from others’ suffering. Trump’s response was unapologetic. That is what any smart business owner does — you buy assets when the price falls. No one should mistake what Clinton and her allies are trying to do here. They are trying to turn Donald Trump into Mitt Romney, who they successfully branded as a “vulture capitalist.” But it is
A deeply divided Republican Party took a major step toward victory yesterday. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan met yesterday morning to discuss their differences as well as areas of agreement. After their meeting on Capitol Hill, they issued the following statement: The United States cannot afford another four years of the Obama White House, which is what Hillary Clinton represents. That is why it’s critical that Republicans unite around our shared principles, advance a conservative agenda, and do all we can to win this fall. With that focus, we had a great conversation this
The Obama Administration declared war yesterday on normalcy and the rule of law when Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced that she was countersuing the state of North Carolina over its commonsense bathroom law. Make no mistake about what is going on here: The Obama Administration is unilaterally rewriting the law. It is attempting to force every state in the nation to comply with its radical demand that men and boys who “identify” as women and girls suddenly have a new “civil right” to use whatever bathroom they choose. The left is on thin ice legally. No law Attorney General Lynch
After Indiana’s disappointing results came in, Texas Senator Ted Cruz suspended his campaign. It was a very wise decision. I had just finished an appearance on the Fox Business Network, in which I tried to avoid suggesting that he should drop out. But by the time I got back to my house, Senator Cruz had made the announcement. Tuesday night, Senator Cruz put the country before his own ambitions. He knows the ultimate goal is to stop Hillary Clinton and prevent the left’s “fundamental transformation” of America. The Republican Party and the conservative movement must be united. And the party
The “storm troopers” of the radical left have been busy in recent days. In California, open borders radicals beat up and harassed conservative activists attempting to attend the state Republican convention. There were mob attacks on individuals, which, by the way, you won’t see on the network news. Now that’s interesting. When a 78-year old Trump supporter punched a demonstrator, we’re shown that video over and over again as evidence of rising intolerance and “fascism” in America. But what happened in California has largely been ignored. The Mexican flags were ignored. The violence and profanity of the left was ignored.
Indiana’s presidential primary is next week, Tuesday, May 3rd. And this afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz got a big boost when Governor Mike Pence endorsed him. Here are some excerpts of Governor Pence’s remarks: I’m not against anybody, but I will be voting for Ted Cruz in the Republican primary. I am a Reagan conservative. . . I see Ted Cruz as a principled conservative who’s dedicated his career to advancing the Reagan agenda. . . I’m very impressed with Ted Cruz’s devotion and knowledge of the Constitution. . . to our Second Amendment, and of course, I appreciate his strong
