Austrian president suggests all women wear hijabs

“This is another example of the world’s leaders bowing to Islam while their citizens are forced to wage the battle on a daily basis,” Nehlen told WND. “The world’s elite, including Speaker Paul Ryan, live in walled mansions. Unfortunately for the rest of us, we don’t have that luxury.” Nehlen, who challenged Ryan for his congressional seat in last year’s GOP primary, said Muslims in Austria must find Van der Bellen’s words encouraging. “This is a civilization jihad, and as such, if they can change the culture, they see it as a win,” he said.

President Trump: In my first 100 days, I kept my promise to Americans – The Washington Post

One hundred days ago, I took the oath of office and made a pledge: We are not merely going to transfer political power from one party to another, but instead are going to transfer that power from Washington, D.C., and give it back to the people. In the past 100 days, I have kept that promise — and more. Issue by issue, department by department, we are giving the people their country back. After decades of a shrinking middle class, open borders and the mass offshoring of American jobs and wealth, this government is working for the citizens of our country and no one else.

Reagan’s Lesson for Trump

Craig Shirley has emerged as perhaps the most knowledgeable historian of Reagan alive today. His fourth biography is out, and it’s every bit as fascinating as the first three. “Reagan Rising” connects the dots between the 1976 and 1980 campaigns. President Trump and/or his closest advisors need to read this book. Shirley drives home a key point: Reagan did not run against the Democrats. He did not run against the left. He ran against the establishment — at the time dominated by liberal Democrats but not limited to them. If he was to become president, he also had to defeat the Republican establishment of moderates, whose collective blood curdled at the thought of him being elected.
