Party on ICE

Democrats are now calling for abolishing ICE - due to its part in dealing with illegal immigrant children.
The calls leave some Democrats cold.
Celinda Lake, longtime Democratic pollster, told Axios: "I worry that abolishing ICE tips the issues from humane treatment to security. The Republicans are already trying to move the issue in that direction."
Lake added: "Voters believe we need some enforcement of border security — not just for immigration, but for security. I wish we were pushing this to: 'We need comprehensive immigration reform.'"

Facebook quote of the week

Here's a picture of family preparing to go out to dinner. None work in the Trump administration or are Trump supporters. However, they have not yet unfriended all Republicans on Facebook or disowned family members that are.

The real wall

President Trump wants a border wall to slow illegal immigration.
Capitol Hill has a better wall - all immigration bills crash.

Justice Kennedy is retiring.

Party in the heat

President Trump headed down to South Carolina Monday for another rally.
Some arrived 12 hours early and spent a day in the 90-plus degree heat to catch the action.
Jonathan Collazo drove from Greensboro, North Carolina, to see Trump for the 14th time. He arrived outside of the high school gates at about 8 a.m. Monday.
"If our president has stamina, his supporters have stamina," Collazo joked after he ordered a pizza to the school for lunch.

Can't we all just get along?

Over at DaTech Guy, a list of past interactions between political sides leading up to Sarah Huckabee Sanders' restaurant visit.
Sanders should have been given first class treatment at the Red Hen, just as any other patron there deserves.
Despite our political differences, Americans still have plenty in common.

Saturday song

Cliff Richard has the perfect song about public discourse in 2018.

Humility? It's Greek to her

Victor Davis Hanson uses his knowledge of ancient Greek history to explain Hillary Clinton's failures.
In sum, Clinton made a series of nearly inexplicable, but clearly disastrous decisions—assuming that she could set up an unlawful private server as Secretary of State, that her 2016 victory was foreordained, and that she would deny and seek to overturn rather than accept her defeat. At any time, easy and obvious choices would have spared her a great deal of humiliation and her associates and supporters disaster.
But then again, according to the classical belief in fate and necessity, Clinton may have had little choice after all—given that her innate flaws were a sort of bomb that was always ticking until blowing up at the most appropriately tragic time.

Attitude adjustment

Since President Trump and Chairman Kim met in Singapore, the tone in North Korea has changed.
Banners and posters displayed across the capital and other towns have typically featured the US as a brutal imperialist aggressor and South Korea or Japan as Washington's willing allies.
But visitors to the country say they've seen those posters replaced by propaganda pushing economic progress and the inter-Korean rapprochement.

Have it your way - or maybe not

Burger King and Russia has retracted an ad - advising Russian they would get free whoppers if they got pregnant by a foreign World Cup player.
It was considered bad taste.

I'm a soul man

The furor over the illegal immigration wave has washed over Facebook.
I see opponents of President Trump calling others
Having no soul.
If you disagree, fine.
When you name call and bludgeon your opponents, you make it infinitely harder to finally come together.
I have a soul.
I care.
I want the best for all.
Children being separated from their families is sad, but there is a good reason for it.
If you don't see any good - or any good in those who don't share your view - then your soul is darker than any politician.

Democrats gave us Trump

The Bill comes due

The IG report gives us another chance to learn about Bill Clinton's tarmac meeting with Loretta Lynch, now almost two years ago.
Lynch reported that she felt increasingly uncomfortable as the minutes ticked by and Clinton showed no signs of leaving.
So did her aides, sitting in a car on the tarmac until one of them finally re-entered the plane in hopes of breaking up the confab.
Apparently, it was quite the cozy conversation, given that the pair apparently had no real social relationship. They talked about Clinton’s golf game that day, the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and the coming arrival of Clinton’s grandchild.
Bill Clinton - the thing that wouldn't leave.

What if?

Scott Adams really likes the video President Trump showed Chairman Kim this morning.
Even if there are critics.
What if Kim likes it?

Trust but verify

Opponents of President Trump have a new favorite phrase - President Reagan's "Trust but Verify."
They don't trust Trump.
If they don't see something from him, they don't believe it.
They want to verify.
Even information that the Trump team will do, but haven't revealed yet.
Unfortunately, the real media narrative is "Distrust and Whine."

Anger and sadness

With the meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim going on behind closed doors, what can the cable news channels do?
More talk.
MSNBC has plenty of sad faces. Thinking of ways it can go wrong for President Trump.
Setting high expectations that can't be met in one day.
And after summit talking Tuesday will be worse.

He will in all likelihood be given a chance to make and keep more promises to the people who gave him the chance the first time.

Have it your way

Kurt Schlichter cooks up a good column about the Supreme Court's decision about the Colorado cake baker.
The Masterpiece Cakeshop decision was not even close in terms of votes (7-2, with Sotomayor and Ginsburg naturally voting in favor of oppression), nor was it a “narrow” ruling on the merits. Instead, it was a ringing endorsement of the idea that sniveling leftist bureaucrats can’t target religious folk for hassles just because the dissenters refuse to bend a knee to the secular idols du jour.

Bring on the IG report

Before the Singapore summit with North Korea, we need some news.
News that will explode after President Trump and the North Korean leader meet.
How about leaking the Inspector General's report?
That will fill some hours before the weekend.
What should we make of all of this? Well, someone featured in the report, having received a draft, is leaking information to ABC News. Curiously, nearly all of this material is well-worn ground. We’ve been talking about Comey’s announcement and the Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting forever. We’ve talked about how long Weiner’s laptop sat in McCabe’s office since January. What’s missing from this leak is anything new or surprising.

Aren't you glad he's not in the White House

Twenty years after the Monica Lewinsky saga, Bill Clinton gets to fight it again.
He's doing worse as time goes on.
Clinton, however, also admitted to Melvin that he has never privately apologized to Lewinsky over the ordeal.
"I've never talked to her," Clinton said, adding that he had publicly apologized to Lewinsky and “everybody in the world.”
"I did say, publicly, on more than one occasion, that I was sorry ... The apology was public," said Clinton.
He responded, "no, I do not," when he was asked whether he owed Lewinsky an apology."

Keep them blue

Rep. Dave Brat knows people like moving to Virginia.
It's good economics.
He wants Virginia to keep it going.
We need to call out what’s happening and, come this fall, Virginians will have to decide if they’re going continue to let blue-state policies (like raising taxes — something many Democrats have promised if they gain power in November) hurt our future economic prospects more than they already have.
