Weekly Wrap-Up

As we near the end of the year, President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet has taken shape, and it’s impressive – a lineup of conservative powerhouses and D.C. outsiders who are poised to “take the establishment and shake it upside down," as one GOP operative puts it.

I for one am looking forward to 2017 and the opportunities we conservatives have to make real progress for our country.  What do you think will be the Trump Administration’s biggest policy victory for the coming year? 

That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll – the last poll of 2016.  I’ve enjoyed seeing the results of our polls each week throughout 2016, and I hope you’ll take part in this final one. 

To get anything done next year, President Trump will need the support of the grassroots citizens who put him in office.  What do you plan to do in 2017 to help show your support for President Trump’s conservative agenda? 

That’s the second question in our year-end Weekly Poll. 

Meanwhile, Hollywood’s attempts to sway the 2016 elections have been so effective, the stars (as they think of themselves) have decided to unleash another video, begging the Electoral College to subvert U.S. democracy and reverse President-elect Donald Trump’s Election Day victory. They just don't get it, do they? 

The list of "celebrities" in the new ad includes J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Steven Pasquale, Dominic Fumusa and Emily Tyra. If you’re familiar with these so-called “celebrities,” you’ve been paying more attention to something than I have. But nonetheless, they’re all deeply concerned by what they see as foreign influence over U.S. elections… and so they’ve aligned themselves with an organization with foreign ties

That’s the sort of hypocrisy we should expect at this point from the entertainment industry liberals (that, and the fact that all of these luminaries would probably oppose efforts to keep actual non-citizens from actually voting in U.S. elections). 

This video is pretty weak in terms of celebrity prowess – the big name is Martin Sheen, who liberals seem to think was actually President of the United States because he played the role on The West Wing. 

But this year Hillary and the Left brought out the worst of the worst. In 2016 we’ve had the displeasure of seeing Rosie O’Donnell and her self-pity (and her bullying of President Trump’s 10-year-old child); the arrogance of Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen; Katy Perry and her immaturity; the vile antics of Lena Dunham; Madonna’s “war on women” who don’t vote the way she thinks they should; Beyonce’s anti-police hypocrisy; Leonardo DiCaprio and his environmental hypocrisy; and Barbra Streisand’s plan to undermine the Constitution. 

I’m sure I’ve left somebody out, but that’s a good start – who do you think is the most annoying liberal celebrity of 2016?  That’s the third question in our year-end Weekly Poll. 

We saw plenty of “fake news” this week – from claims that Obamacare added 20 million to America’s health insurance rolls, to allegations that Russia somehow decided the presidential election. 

And we’re learning more about the “fake news” story of a Muslim woman’s supposedly harrowing subway attack at the hands of Trump supporters – and what it reveals isn’t just the media’s eagerness to latch on to any story that confirms their bias, but also life for a young woman in an Islamic household. Don’t look for the media to give that angle much coverage. 

Have a great weekend – and I hope you and your family are having a wonderful Christmas season!
