DeVos Blocked from Entering DC School

Proof once again that the left is using thug tactics to bully those with whom they disagree.  The story notes one of those who blocked her had a Black Lives Matter sign.  So they don’t just harass and turn away those who are there to speak, but also those who are there to listen.  The thugs trailed her and shouted at her as she left. The media spend so much time bashing Trump and all  he appoints.  When will they turn on those who are a physical threat to society?

9th Circuit Refuses to Reinstate Immigration Order

To which Trump Tweeted:  “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” (Fox News).  David French explains why he believes “The Ninth Circuit’s decision was bad enough that Trump now has to win, and the best way to win is to do things right, not to charge headlong into the legal cannonade” (National Review).  The court used campaign statements to block the policy (Washington Post).  From the Wall Street Journal: …while we opposed Mr. Trump’s order on policy grounds, there is reason to worry now about judicial overreach (WSJ).

Lanhee Chen: California Adrift

single-payer

In a pre-Super Bowl interview, President Trump said that California “in many ways, is out of control.”

California’s leaders don’t want to admit it, but he’s right on this one.
The president was making specific reference to legislation written by the top Democrat in the California State Senate, which would effectively turn the entire state into a “Sanctuary City,” prohibiting state or local authorities from enforcing federal immigration law.

Such legislation is an affront to those who believe in the rule of law.
California Democrats—led by Governor Jerry Brown—have decided their best strategy is simply to say “no” to everything President Trump proposes.

That’s too bad, because there are areas of potential bipartisan cooperation between the Golden State and the new administration in Washington—health care reform, infrastructure construction or maybe even energy policy.

Governor Brown and the state’s leaders should seek opportunities to cooperate and improve conditions for California’s residents. They surely won’t agree with President Trump on much, but they owe it to the people of California to govern maturely and responsibly.

Lanhee Chen: Tom Price: The Right Man for HHS

single-payer

Later this week, the Senate will take up the nomination of Dr. Tom Price to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. Dr. Price is uniquely qualified for the job—he’s a physician with real-world experience who also has an excellent understanding of the health policy challenges facing our country.

During his time in Congress, Dr. Price wrote a market-based health care reform plan that will lower costs, expand access and enhance innovation. Indeed, the Price plan will serve as a template for reform in the months ahead.

Unfortunately, Senate Democrats have engaged in an unprecedented level of hyper-partisanship during the confirmation processes of Dr. Price and other cabinet nominees. In fact, they have voted for fewer of the majority party’s nominees than any other minority party in American history.  And they’ve resorted to character assassination against Dr. Price and other Trump cabinet nominees.

It’s sad, because good men like Tom Price are waiting to serve.  Our leaders in Washington should put petty partisanship aside and vote to confirm Dr. Price without delay.
