Weekly Wrap-Up

President Obama gave his farewell address this week, and fittingly it was defined by dishonesty and “inconvenient truths,” as the Daily Signal puts it – from false claims that Obama revived the U.S. economy and created jobs to dishonest talking points about Obamacare to boasts about uniting the country after eight divisive years.

What do you think is the most outrageous falsehood being pushed by President Obama and his allies as he leaves the White House? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll.  It’s unfortunate that there are so many choices.

Confirmation hearings for President-Elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees are now underway, and this has made it an interesting week, to put it mildly. 

Defense pick James Mattis is telling it like it is. Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson is winning support. Ben Carson was impressive during his testimony about how he will make HUD work better. Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos is being praised by those who know her and have worked with her. And Trump’s Health and Human Services pick Tom Price is already facing bizarre attacks from the (government-funded) left.

Which of President-Elect Trump’s cabinet nominees has you most excited? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll – and for this question, we are fortunate to have so many outstanding leaders to choose from!

Let’s Be Honest” – a refreshing theme from Rob Astorino, as he takes on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his “fake news” style of leadership.  

Rob is one of our highly-anticipated special guests at the upcoming Conservative Party Political Action Conference that begins on January 29.  I hope you can join us – you can get more information and registration materials here.

We’re also excited that Kathleen Gallagher, an invaluable pro-life voice, will be joining us for CPPAC. This is one of her latest commentaries – it’s a powerful read. 

Also highly-anticipated is a strong conservative challenge to Andrew Cuomo in 2018. When Cuomo is up for reelection next year, what do you think will be the best issue for a conservative candidate to highlight? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll – I’m very interested to see what you think. 

Have a great weekend!
