As the mainstream media worked hard to dismantle Trump, a lot of false stories floated around. But the lie that President Trump was somehow in league with Russia to bring down America? That one took off at levels that no other story did — Trump even faced failed impeachment proceedings over it. Now that the story has been proven false many times over, President Trump calls for 18 Pulitzer Prizes related to fake news stories about the alleged Trump-Putin connection to be revoked.

Trump laid into the Washington Post and New York Times specifically for their “shoddy, dubious, and manifestly false reporting” in a statement released Sunday via his Save America PAC.

“I call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to immediately rescind the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting awarded to the staffs of The New York Times and The Washington Post, which was based on false reporting of a non-existent link between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign,” the statement reads. “As has been widely publicized, the coverage was no more than a politically motivated farce which attempted to spin a false narrative that my campaign supposedly colluded with Russia despite a complete lack of evidence underpinning this allegation.”

“When the Board announced the prize, it lauded the recipients ‘for deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nations’ understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the president-elect’s transition team, and his eventual administration,'” Trump’s statement reads. The President continues:

“Specifically, the prize was awarded for a series of articles centered around the now-debunked Russia collusion conspiracy theory. The headlines themselves were extremely sensational and leaned heavily on unsubstantiated anonymous sources. For example, much of the information contained in these articles were credited to ‘people with knowledge,’ ‘current and former officials,’ ‘some senior U.S. officials,’ and other vaguely defined individuals. As a result, the public was deprived of an independent means of assessing their credibility, their potential for political bias, and the source of their knowledge.”

“For two years, these institutions feverishly pushed one Russia story after another and – despite lacking any credible evidence – attempted to persuade the public that my campaign had colluded with the Russian government,” Trump says, pointing out that the reports spread “clear logical fallacies” and “narratives” that had a “clear lack of evidence.

“Contemporaneously with that reporting, numerous conservative news outlets and commentators questioned the legitimacy of these reports, exposing the clear logical fallacies contained in their narratives and pointing to the clear lack of evidence underpinning them,” Trump adds.

Trump points out that the Pulitzer Prize has long been “recognized as a significant achievement in the field of journalism,” and that it is “meant to be bestowed upon well-deserving recipients in recognition of their groundbreaking journalistic efforts.”

Trump says he hopes the Times and Post will return their prizes, but that he does not expect that — so he hopes the Pulitzer Prize Board will step in and rescind the awards.

“Without holding the recipients to such a high standard of accountability, the integrity of the Pulitzer Prize namesake stands to be wholly compromised,” he says. And he’s right.

How unpopular is Joe Biden? He’s so unpopular that his approval rating recently dropped to 43 percent — 6 point below his extremely unpopular Vide President, Kamala Harris. He’s so unpopular that if the election happened today, President Trump would handily beat him — and his Vice President — in head-to-head races. New polling reveals that Trump wins vs. Biden and Harris in a 2024 matchup.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that in a head-to-head matchup, Biden nor Harris stands a chance — and not even by a little. Trump would win by around 10 percentage points against Biden. And shockingly, 20 percent of Democrats would vote for Trump. Against Harris, Trump would win 52 to 39 percent.

The Washington Examiner says that voters don’t necessarily want Trump to win again — though they would definitely choose him over Biden or Harris:

The survey is the latest of dozens that have shown Biden sinking like a stone. Many have turned south since the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. forces and diplomats from Afghanistan and the surge of illegal immigrants over the U.S.-Mexico border.

Others have shown that people are growing worried about Biden’s competence and ability to stay in office long enough to run for reelection.

At the same time, voters have been slow to warm to another Trump bid. But that appears to be over.

Rasmussen found that more likely voters than not want Trump to run again. By a 48%-44% margin, they told the pollster that running in 2024 is a good idea.

Trump, set to host a Georgia rally this weekend, has been hinting at another run, and his top advisers have suggested that a 2024 run is a lock.

The poll does not indicate why voters have warmed to Trump again. But others, notably one from McLaughlin & Associates, have shown that voters want Trump’s leadership style back.

Americans have learned a lesson about Biden. But that lesson has been learned too late. The best we can do is get rid of him in 2024 unless he screws up so badly that Harris is forced to invoke the 25h Amendment.

Many are considering backing Florida governor Rick DeSantis for President in 2024. While he is an excellent leader who has stepped up to defend Floridians from government overreach not just with COVID, but with many Democrat plans. Recently, DeSantis won a straw poll at CPAC, narrowly edging out President Trump. But despite his popularity, the idea of Donald Trump running against Joe Biden after all the corruption in the 2020 election has been revealed is an idea that makes many Americans happy — and there are numerous reasons why Trump should run in 2024.

Many have floated the idea of President Trump running for Congress in his home state of Florida in 2022. If we retake the House, this would likely result in Trump replacing crooked Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. And if we retake the Senate, we can fully defend against anything Joe Biden and the Democrats throw at us. This, of course, would not interfere with President Trump running for President in 2024. It would just give him more opportunities to remind Americans why he’s the right man for the job. So, why should Trump run in 2024?

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Before Americans began running scared about COVID and our economy suffered, President Trump managed to increase jobs in America by a lot — over three times the numbers projected by the government’s top experts.

Under Trump, the unemployment rate dropped to 3.5 percent. The median household income rose to the highest levels since the Great Recession of 2015. On average, middle-class families enjoyed an additional $6,000 per year. Though COVID-19 ruined all of the progress we made under Trump, if we ignore those special circumstances, President Trump was better for the economy than any President since Ronald Reagan.

In fact, jobless claims under Trump his a 50-year low. This stretched across every demographic, including  African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, veterans, people with disabilities, women, and even people without a high school diploma.

Trump Can Handle A Crisis

It’s no secret that the Coronavirus created a disaster we have not seen in our lifetimes. President Trump handled it magnificently. Once we knew what China had unleashed on the world, President Trump leaped into action. He suspended all travel from China, required Americans who were returning home from COVID hotspots to undergo screening and quarantine. He restricted travel to areas where COVID presented a major threat, issued travel advisories, closed the borders, and generally kept America safe from outside threats.

Trump swiftly pulled together teams of experts to keep COVID from spreading. He declared a national emergency, established a 24/7 FEMA National Response Coordination Center. He used emergency authorizations to repurpose factories to develop personal protective equipment, and coordinated emergency response to the virus nationwide. He also made sure that testing for the virus happened nationwide, helping further keep it from spreading.

President Trump’s actions reduced COVID deaths from a projected 2.2 million to a tiny fraction of that. cut off funding to the World Health Organization once it became clear that it was in China’s pocket, and demanded that the world hold China responsible for releasing this virus on the world. He got Americans back to work and helped the country heal from Democrat-led shutdowns. Overall, his response to COVID-19 is a major reason President Trump should run in 2024.

The Border

Border security was perhaps one of President Trump’s most important issues. While Joe Biden is inviting illegals to pour across, spreading COVID and increasing crime rats in popular border crossing areas, Trump did the opposite. Illegals say that they would not be coming across if Trump was still President — and there are many reasons for this.

President Trump build over 400 miles of border wall to keep illegals from crossing, reducing illegal crossings by almost 90 percent. This effort was helped along by his decision to deploy almost 5,000 troops to the southern border and his ability to convince Mexico to also deploy tens of thousands of soldiers and national guardsmen to protect their side of the border. He ended Catch-and-Release.

President Trump, unlike Biden, ensured that immigration laws were followed. He signed an executive order to strip federal funding from sanctuary cities. He deported illegals quickly and effectively. Under Trump, the United States prosecuted a record number of immigration crimes. President Trump has done more to keep our nation safe from criminal gangs than any previous President.

These are just a few of the many, many reasons Trump should run in 2024. Under Joe Biden and the Democrats, we are losing the respect of world leaders. Americans are suffering. Our border security has almost completely collapsed. It’s time to bring America back to a state of prominence in the world. And with another term of President Trump’s presidency, we can truly make America great again.

William Barr is increasingly being proven to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The latest example of him betraying President Trump comes from a former U.S. Attorney in Pennsylvania, who sent President Trump a letter claiming that Barr blocked an election investigation in his state.

Former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, William McSwain, told the President that Barr had asked him not to make the public aware of any “election irregularities.” McSwain told the President he “disagreed with that decision,” but that he was just following orders:

“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities,” McSwain’s letter tells President Trump. “As part of my responsibilities as U.S. Attorney, I wanted to be transparent with the public and, of course, investigate fully any allegations.”

” Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities,” the letter says. “I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation – the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.”

McSwain has definitely prosecuted — and won — election fraud cases in his state related to the 2020 election. But his orders from Barr were to not talk about them. Seems a strange order from the Attorney General, but it’s understandable when one considers that Barr has always been corrupt.

Barr is just another reminder that swamp creatures still persist in government despite Trump’s best efforts to get rid of them. Remember that when voting in 2022 and 2024.

A new Rasmussen poll reveals that Americans overwhelmingly agree with President Trump that the liberal, mainstream media is the “Enemy of the People.” President Trump has repeatedly identified and condemned the lies, conspiracy theories, and hatred spread by the media, who attempt to demonize conservatives and our ideals.

The poll asked respondents if they agree that the media is “truly the enemy of the people” as President Trump has suggested. While leftists might disagree, most Americans said that they at least “somewhat agree.” Via Rasmussen:

Voters overwhelmingly believe “fake news” is a problem, and a majority agree with former President Donald Trump that the media have become “the enemy of the people.”

A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat agree that the media are “truly the enemy of the people,” including 34% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-six percent (36%) don’t agree, including 23% who Strongly Disagree. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Only 46 percent disagreed with the President. And independents” An astounding 61 percent agree with Trump. While Democrats were more likely to side against President Trump, only 56 percent of Democrats say they “trust” the news they receive. This number is not very different from the 58 percent of Republicans who say the same.

Americans are united on the media being untrustworthy, but not with the problem of fake news. Democrats claimed that Republicans buying into fake news was a major problem in 2016, yet only 83 percent say that fake news is a serious problem. A whopping 92 percent of Republicans say the same.

This poll reveals that regardless of political ideology, Americans don’t trust the media at all. This is a major problem because we depend on them to provide us with unbiased truth. But the fact is that we can’t trust the media. Period.

President Trump has clearly had issues with Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other social media platforms’ decision to censor and remove him following his attempts to calm the crowd when peaceful protesters occupied the Capitol on January 6. Trump told everyone to go home, but social media platforms accused im unjustly of inciting violence and removed him to keep Americans safe from him — or so the story goes. Now, President Trump plans to sue Twitter, Facebook, and Google over their “unlawful” censorship of conservatives.

“We’re demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and canceling that you know so well,” Trump said during a speech at his golf resort in New Jersey on Wednesday. Newsmax reports that President Trump, backed by the America First Policy Institute, filed the lawsuit Wednesday morning in Florida:

Trump has been battling for years with the sites over free speech and censorship, even before his ban.

By using a class-action lawsuit, Trump is filing on behalf of a broad group of people that claim they have been censored because of political bias. 

“We ask the court to impose punitive damages on these social media giants,” said Trump. “We’re going to hold Big Tech very accountable. This is the first of numerous other lawsuits.”

Trump railed about what he called censorship of posts by him and others because of the coronavirus pandemic, including his posts about hydroxychloroquine and other treatments for COVID-19. 

“Liberty is under increased threats and attacks by a lot of different sides,” Trump said. “We are the majority side … social media has given extraordinary power to a group of Big Tech giants that are working with government, the mainstream media, and a large segment of a political party to suppress the views of the American people and they’ve been very successful at that.”

Trump says “thousands of people” want to join his lawsuit against social media companies. More than 192,000 Americans watched Trump’s announcement live — a sign that even though his presidency is over, he remains immensely popular with Americans — Americans who are sick of censorship.

President Trump laid into Joe Biden in a recent op-ed written for RealClearPolitics. In it, President Trump rightfully criticizes Joe Biden for dividing the country — specifically by indoctrinating children into crazy Democrat ideals through the teaching of Critical Race Theory and other extremist ideologies in schools.

“There is no clearer example than the Biden administration’s new effort aimed at indoctrinating America’s schoolchildren with some of the most toxic and anti-American theories ever conceived,” Trump says. “It is vital for Americans to understand what this initiative would do, what drives it and, most importantly, how we can stop it.”

Pointing out that Critical Race Theory is “completely antithetical to everything that normal Americans of any color would wish to teach their children,” Trump says that CRT “teaches them that America is systemically evil and that the hearts of our people are full of hatred and malice.” But Trump has ideas on how to stop Biden and his cohorts from brainwashing our children:

First, every state legislature should pass a ban on taxpayer dollars going to any school district or workplace that teaches critical race theory, which inherently violates existing anti-discrimination laws.

Second, each state should create its own 1776 Commission to examine the public school curriculum and ensure that students are receiving a patriotic, pro-American education — not being taught that the United States is an evil nation.

Third, parents have a right to know exactly what is being taught to their children. Last year, many parents had the chance to routinely listen in on classes for the first time because of remote learning.

Fourth, parents need to organize locally — in every school district in America — to eliminate “Action Civics” and other versions of the effort to contort traditional civics education into a vehicle for political indoctrination.

Fifth, any parent who objects to the material being taught to their child in public school should get an automatic voucher, empowering them to pick another school of their choice. The government has no right to brainwash students with controversial ideologies against their parents’ will.

Sixth, states need to take back control of their schools of education and credentialing bodies to ensure they are not churning out radicalized teachers.

Finally, states need to break the tenure monopoly in public K-12 schools. Tenure was originally supposed to protect competent teachers from being subjected to undue political influence; it has turned into a mechanism to protect incompetent teachers who themselves wield undue political influence over our children.

“Make no mistake: The motive behind all of this left-wing lunacy is to discredit and eliminate the greatest obstacles to the fundamental transformation of America,” Trump says. “To succeed with their extreme agenda, radicals know they must abolish our attachment to the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and most of all, Americans’ very identity as a free, proud, and self-governing people.”

This is happening all across the country in the classrooms in which our children are supposed to be learning. As Trump says, “a nation is only as strong as its spirit” — and the Left must be stop before our children’s are broken.

If Kamala Harris tries to take over for the rapidly cognitively-failing Joe Biden in 2024, she’s going to have a rough time if President Trump decides to run against her. A new poll reveals that Americans like Donald Trump more than Kamala.

A McLaughlin and Associates survey reveals that President Trump’s chances of winning a head-to-head race against Harris are pretty good. Americans have become tired of watching her ignore the border crisis while spending all her time attacking our police and race-baiting.

The poll surveyed 1,000 likely voters between May 12 and 18 — and the results are bad for Harris. Harris was favorited by 47 percent of respondents. This may seem impressive, being nearly half of Americans. But Trump, who is not even in office right now, managed to beat her.

In what can be viewed as a blow to Biden, 64 percent of Americans say they think Harris will become President before the end of Biden’s term. 82 percent of Republican primary voters say they will support Trump in 2024. And 83 percent say they will vote for him in the General Election.

The poll asks if the election were held today and Trump was the Republican candidate, for whom would voters vote. The answer is not good for Harris, who only received 45 percent of the vote. President Trump received 49 percent among those polled.

At the rate Joe Biden’s mind is failing him, it’s extremely likely that Harris will be the likely Democrat choice for 2024. Though she is popular with the Left, most Americans recognize Harris for what she is: an unqualified failure of a human being who belongs nowhere near any government position — even dog catcher.

Joe Biden’s border crisis is a disaster of epic proportions. A large majority of Americans say the border is an utter disaster, but the media and Biden Administration attempt to downplay the complete policy failure that caused the current crisis. The rest of us, including President Trump, know the truth.

In a new op-ed for the Washington Times, President trump brings down the hammer on Joe Biden, calling the border under the current President*’s watch “a humanitarian catastrophe.”

“When I was president, I delivered on my promise to build a border wall to protect our country,” Trump says in his op-ed. “All Joe Biden had to do was paint it. “

“Instead, Biden has enacted the most radical open borders agenda imaginable,” the former President continues. “This is perhaps the first time in world history a nation has purposely and systematically dismantled its own defenses to invite millions of foreign migrants to enter its territory and break its laws.” He points out that border crossings in May were 700 percent higher than when he was President. President Trump lays out exactly what Biden has done to screw up:

Joe Biden has restored catch-and-release, torn up our hard-earned asylum agreements with Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, and announced that anyone on the planet who lives in a crime-afflicted area now qualifies for asylum in the United States. Meanwhile, ICE is effectively shut down, senior border security officials have been fired, and criminals are being released in record numbers.

To top it all off, the Biden administration has announced a new program whereby the U.S. government will literally pay to fly illegal aliens’ relatives from other countries to join them in the United States.

These policies are utterly depraved — the actions of someone who by all indications wants to completely abolish America’s southern border.

Yet of all the vindictive, shocking, and self-defeating border security actions Joe Biden has taken, none surpasses his decision to stop the final completion of the wall.

This piece is devastating to Biden, as every single word of it is true. It’s eloquently presented. And it is absolutely brutal. You can read the whole thing here.

President Trump is an extremely popular choice both as an opponent for Joe Biden in 2024 and as a candidate for Congress in Florida in 2022. But with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ popularity rising, he runs the risk of threatening President Trump’s reign as the favorite. In fact, he recently edged out President Trump in an “approval” straw poll at the Western conservative Conference.

DeSantis, who has been handling Florida through the pandemic magnificently, managed to snag a 74 percent approval rating — three percentage points above President Trump. Both men outperformed Ted Cruz, Mike Pompeo, and Tim Scott by a mile and a half.

As The Week notes, it’s a bit early to decide, but that this is an interesting trend:

Obviously, at this stage, a straw poll could simply be a mirage, but DeSantis has looked like a contender elsewhere, finishing second to Trump in the 2024 straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February. Trump has also said, if he does make another bid for the White House, he’d consider the controversial, but popular governor as a potential running mate. 

President Trump and Ron DeSantis are both excellent choices for both Congress and President. And if Trump decides not to run, it’s good to know that we have a candidate who can step in and bring the fight directly to Joe Biden and the Democrats.

We need all the soldiers we can get in the war for the country’s future. And Ron DeSantis is proving to be a superstar capable of pulling off a win.
