Campaign for Working Families

The Biden White House has insisted that Donald Trump’s prosecutions are not political in any way and that this is just the legal system at work, proving that no one is above the law. But what did they do yesterday? The Biden campaign sent a wrecking crew, led by left-wing actor Robert DeNiro, to hold a big press conference outside the Manhattan courthouse as closing arguments in Trump’s bogus bookkeeping trial were underway. What a revealing spectacle that was. DeNiro may be a good actor, but he’s a terrible legal and political analyst.

It’s rare for European nations to adopt a stronger foreign policy position than the United States. So, it is worth taking note when it happens, and it is happening right now. There are disturbing reports that the Biden administration is pressuring our European allies, especially Britain and France, to back down when it comes to Iran’s nuclear program. To say that Tehran’s pursuit of weapons of mass destruction has continued unabated during the Biden presidency is a severe understatement. Joe Biden has enabled Iran’s pursuit of weapons of mass destruction by repeatedly lifting sanctions… Read More

Democrats have not been shy about their desire to “fundamentally transform” the courts. They have repeatedly called for packing the Supreme Court with additional left-wing activists in order to end the court’s conservative majority. While they haven’t managed to do that yet, they are having success transforming the lower federal courts. So far, the Senate has confirmed 200 Biden judicial nominees, and they are all left-wing ideologues. They are the kinds of judges who are responsible for the insane headlines you often read that defy common sense and the Constitution. Let me give you… Read More

There was an extraordinarily disturbing development yesterday that barely got any notice. Newly released court documents show that the FBI was authorized to use deadly force during the unprecedented raid at Mar-a-Lago. The Biden Justice Department insists this is just standard operating procedure when the FBI conducts a raid. Well, this was not a standard FBI raid of a dangerous criminal. It was the home of the former president of the United States, who even then was the leading opponent of the current president of the United States in the upcoming election.

Yesterday, we reported on the outrage triggered by the decision of the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) chief prosecutor to seek arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli defense minister. I was also struck by the absurdity of the ICC citing Bibi Netanyahu as a war criminal while the entire world – including the Biden State Department – offered condolences on the death of the president of Iran, who was nicknamed “The Butcher of Tehran.” Would we have sent condolences to Germany if Hitler had died?

Joe Biden doesn’t seem to like America all that much. The man who claimed he wanted to unite the country just gave a speech that did nothing but trash the country and inflame racial tensions. Biden gave the commencement speech yesterday at Morehouse College, a historically black college located in Atlanta, Georgia. It has a long list of distinguished alumni that includes congressmen and cabinet secretaries, as well as notable figures like Herman Cain, Samuel L. Jackson, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Biden could have delivered an inspirational address that pointed to the success of any… Read More

“Open Borders” Biden may have a big problem on his hands. But it remains to be seen if the American people will ever know about it. Did you know that over the last few years, there have been repeated attempts by Chinese nationals to gain access to American military bases? This isn’t just a couple of random incidents. It’s happened more than 100 times. Did you know that? Congress just held a hearing about this issue, trying to figure out what the heck is going on. You’d think that would be big news.

There are reports that Joe Biden is about to issue an executive order to close the southern border when illegal crossings are exceeding 4,000 a day. Biden’s handlers obviously understand how badly the immigration issue is hurting him, and they’re desperate to show some “action.” But this plan is total baloney. For starters, 4,000 crossings a day is still 1,460,000 illegal aliens entering our country a year. So, Biden thinks we’re supposed to tolerate nearly 1.5 million illegal aliens crossing our border. That’s not a “closed border.”

It is impossible to exaggerate the extent to which the left is willing to go to indoctrinate our children with the LGBTQ agenda. For example, Joe Biden is using the federal government to force every school in the country to allow boys into our daughters’ bathrooms and locker rooms. It is also impossible to exaggerate the great lengths they will go to in order to hide what they are doing. The latest example comes from La Costa Heights Elementary School in Carlsbad, where a fifth-grade class was required to read the book My Shadow Is Pink.

We got a report this morning on the latest measure of inflation, and it was bad news for Joe Biden. The producer price index, which measures the cost of goods and services being produced, went up much higher than expected. Economists had predicted an increase of 0.3% for April, or 3.6% on an annualized basis. But the producer price index came in at 0.5% for the month, or 6% on an annualized basis. That’s a very high number considering that the Federal Reserve’s stated goal is a 2% inflation rate. Usually, there is a strong relationship between producer and consumer prices. As one… Read More

Donald Trump held an unbelievable rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, Saturday. Some Trump enthusiasts said as many as 100,000 people turned out. Seems high.   An official for the city of Wildwood estimated the group was at least 80,000 strong. Some New Jersey papers said the crowd was 12,000 people. No way! Let’s just say it was around 50,000 people. That’s still huge! Last year, Trump held an event in South Carolina that reportedly drew 50,000. But that was ruby red South Carolina, not deep blue New Jersey!

There is an old adage in Washington: “Personnel is policy.” The meaning is obvious enough: The people appointed to top positions make policy through their daily actions, and those actions and policies are often influenced by their own agendas, biases, and ideologies. The Biden administration’s shocking betrayal of Israel is raising serious concerns about Maher Bitar, the White House Coordinator for Intelligence and Defense Policy.

I saw this disturbing photo this morning. It looks like a typical anti-Israel protest in Tehran or Damascus. But when I checked the caption to find out in which Islamic hellhole this picture was taken, I was surprised to learn that it was Chicago.   Further west, the sanctuary city of Denver has welcomed illegal aliens and provides them with food and rental assistance for six months. Not surprisingly, many illegal aliens are heading to Denver.   Giving handouts to illegal aliens is a bad idea. It’s just a magnet for more illegal immigration. But at least you’d think they would have some… Read More

The Biden White House continues to send mixed messages about its support for our ally Israel as it fights the Islamic supremacists of Hamas. Joe Biden has made it clear that he does not want Israel to crush the last Hamas stronghold in Rafah. He is even blocking weapons shipments to Israel as it moves to finish the job. National Security spokesman John Kirby was asked whether the Biden administration supported Israel’s efforts to destroy Hamas. In one breath, Kirby affirmed Israel’s right to defend itself, but then added, “I’ve said many times here, you’re not going to eliminate an… Read More

In previous reports, we have exposed the left-wing donors, radical Islamist groups, and extremist forces that are funding and coordinating the anti-Israel protests on our college campuses. For those still under the impression that this is all about Israel’s foreign policy or America’s foreign policy, let me just clarify for you what we know is motivating this movement and what is really behind these protests. I’m not talking about every single individual involved, but the inspiration and worldview of the movement and its radical leaders.

This is what the statue of George Washington at George Washington University in our nation’s capital currently looks like. Washington is the epitome of an American hero. He was famously eulogized as, “First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”   But he is trash to the trash occupying George Washington University. This desecration is beyond disgusting. It’s very telling that the first impulse of these anti-Israel protesters is to attack symbols of America.   Some well-meaning students may be involved in these campus occupations. But at its core, this is an anti-… Read More

President Biden issued a proclamation Wednesday recognizing the National Day of Prayer. I know the National Day of Prayer organizers were very happy he did that. And he actually mentioned God twice. That’s a big improvement over other proclamations he has issued. (Here and here.) But when I heard the news, I quickly left Washington because I was worried lightning might smite the city. In my view, there’s nothing good about Biden issuing his proclamation in the wake of his constant promoting of abortion on demand and forcing our daughters to share bathrooms with boys.

The latest Economist poll asked a very interesting question: “Do you feel that things in this country these days are under control or out of control?” Nearly 70% of Americans said our country is “out of control.” They’re right. Everywhere we look, things are out of control. Boys claiming to be girls are invading our daughters’ locker rooms and bathrooms. Millions of people from all over the world are invading our country across our wide-open borders. Crime in our major cities is forcing many businesses to close. The economy is so bad that many young Americans can’t afford to… Read More

Watching the disgusting outbursts of anti-Semitism on our college campuses lately has been deeply disturbing. Even worse has been the cowardice of too many university presidents and the silence from the president of the United States. Yet as the sun rose this morning, there were signs of bravery and courage reasserting themselves. (Here and here.) But the biggest sign of American renewal was at UCLA, where Jewish students have been verbally accosted and physically assaulted. When Passover ended last night, Jewish students and volunteers from the surrounding community decided to take… Read More

Another deadline for campus protesters at Columbia University to disperse expired yesterday afternoon. When the university warned that the remaining students at the “Gaza Solidary Encampment” faced suspension, the student radicals took note and moved. They forcibly occupied Hamilton Hall, which is a historic building. It is named after Alexander Hamilton. It has Tiffany stained-glass windows of the Roman poet Virgil and the Greek playwright Sophocles. Hamilton Hall was also the site of a famous student takeover in 1968 by actual anti-war students. Today’s occupiers of Hamilton Hall… Read More

I have been reading recently how radical Islamists set out to capture American universities over the past few decades. (Here and here.) They saw “higher education” as a way to influence debate and policy and a way they could “win” over the long term. Billions of dollars poured into American institutions to fund new departments and programs focused on the Middle East and Islamic Studies. Of course, the great majority of these professors espouse anti-Israel views. Communist China has had a decades old program to take over American universities. Beijing put Confucius Institutes on more… Read More

As is often the case, the media headlines regarding yesterday’s Supreme Court arguments over presidential immunity were contradictory. Consider these dueling headlines from the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal: “High Court Poised To Reject Trump’s Immunity Claim” (Washington Post) “Justices Seem Open To Some Immunity For Trump” (Wall Street Journal) As I suggested yesterday, the truth is likely somewhere in between.

The anti-Semitic protesters on hundreds of U.S. campuses spring from the same diseased root as the Hitler Youth. Let me explain. Adolf Hitler organized and radicalized German youth, indoctrinating them in Nazi ideology from elementary school to college. Today, American children at every level are being indoctrinated in the leftist ideologies of critical race theory (CRT), so-called “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI), and gender theory. Don’t forget what the word Nazi means. It’s an acronym for “National Socialism.” So, German Nazis were socialists, which is also the prevailing… Read More

The pro-Hamas demonstrations at Columbia were just given the green light by the university’s leadership. After giving the extremists a midnight deadline to clear out, the administration announced that they can stay for 48 more hours while negotiations continue.  Negotiations about what? What demands from these haters is the university willing to entertain? No one at the negotiating table represents the American people. Some are asking, “Well, what can the administration really do?” I have plenty of suggestions.

Here’s what Joe Biden said when he was asked about the Jew-hatred sweeping our elite universities: “I condemn the antisemitic protests. That’s why I have set up a program to deal with that. I also condemn those who don’t understand what’s going on with the Palestinians.” As a reminder, Biden’s “program” to deal with anti-Semitism included the Jew-haters at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR’s director supported the October 7th Hamas massacre. More importantly, Joe Biden just did what he has repeatedly lied about Donald Trump doing in Charlottesville.

New York City Police had just barely finished clearing out the pro-Hamas encampment at Columbia University last week when the radical anti-Semites and America-haters returned with reinforcements. We can’t just shrug our shoulders at this. What is happening at Columbia transcends foreign policy and partisan politics. It is not your typical leftist college protest over some obscure cause no one has ever heard of. What is happening at our elite universities has nothing to do with Israel. It’s raw anti-Semitism. It is blatant Jew-hatred by Hitler’s ideological heirs, who are yearning for… Read More

As you know, Iran fired 300 drones and ballistic missiles at Israel last week, hoping to kill thousands of innocent Israelis. Joe Biden told Israel not to escalate the situation. Israel just had 300 missiles fired at it. What exactly is escalation? Firing 301 missiles in response?  Israeli leaders wanted to respond immediately, but Biden was already telling Israel, “Don’t.” There are reports that the same message was being communicated last night when Israel launched what appears to be a relatively minor counterstrike. There’s another story being reported this morning with glee by… Read More

Chuck Schumer and his fellow Democrats made a total sham out of the Senate yesterday. Rather than take seriously their oaths to uphold the Constitution and seriously consider the articles of impeachment passed by the House of Representatives against Homeland Insecurity Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Schumer and every other Democrat simply dismissed them. It was the first time in the history of our Republic that the Senate refused its constitutional obligation to act as a court of trial in an impeachment case.

Many Americans are infuriated by the obvious lawfare campaign the left has been waging against Donald Trump. Legal experts and professors of constitutional law say these cases are weak and abusive. It’s the stuff of banana republics. But to actually watch it play out in real time in a Manhattan courtroom makes me furious. As I noted yesterday, Hillary Clinton did essentially the exact same thing and was never prosecuted. If we’re going to start prosecuting so-called “hush money” cases, let’s start with Congress!

Demonstrations erupted all over the United States yesterday.  Protesters shut down the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. They shut down O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. They blocked IRS offices and burned American flags in New York City. They blocked streets in Philadelphia and major interstates in other cities. Everywhere, it was the same group of radical Muslims and their radical neo-Marxist allies. Just as we were shocked when these barbarians went into the streets protesting against Israel and cheering Hamas after the horrific October 7th massacre, they were celebrating… Read More
