    I don’t understand how a judge can block the order to not give money to sanctuary cities. A grant is not a guaranteed fund every year. Grants are applied for and not always granted so this makes no sense. It is NOT an entitlement program. If you are breaking federal law and apply for grant money of course you are not going to get it. I do not see how they can force the gov’t to give them money that is not guaranteed every year anyway. Do these people not know how the grant process works?

      OK, it’s been a really rough day here and I’m so glad I watched this entire video.
      Air Force One lands in Florida. Our POTUS comes out and down the steps. Here comes Barron and our FLOTUS—wearing that FABULOUS dark pumpkin color dress and matching shoes she wore to the Turkey Pardoning ceremony earlier (but not the AMAZING coat, it’s warm in Florida).
      There’s his crisp salute to the Marine guards at the bottom of the steps.
      THEN—our POTUS walks right PAST The Beast waiting for him, freaking out the Secret Service, points to the ROCK STAR screaming crowd further away—and WALKS OVER to them along with Melania. (I guess that Barron was already in The Beast)
      AND for the next 15 minutes+ by my count, our POTUS, surrounded by freaked out Secret Service personnel, worked the crowd. Signed lots of MAGA caps, lots of Navy caps, some officer’s hats. Signed campaign signs, home made signs. Somebody GAVE HIM A PAINTING, which he accepted and handed back to his entourage. You can clearly see that the S.S. men are saying, “Please come along, Mr. President” but he’s also clearly indicating that he wants to stay with WE, THE PEOPLE. The S.S. men end up using their cellphone flashlights to provide more light so our POTUS can sign away.
      And at the end, after signing even more caps, hats, and signs, high-5ing several times, talking with WE, THE PEOPLE, our POTUS and FLOTUS walk to the The Beast which backed up and is waiting for them. The crowd goes nuts again. Our POTUS and FLOTUS enter The Beast and the motorcade moves off.
      God bless and preserve you, Mr. President, and your family.
      Happy Thanksgiving to all!

      Pam, thanks so much for posting! After a full week, to see POTUS and FLOTUS spend so much time with well wishers at the airport before going home was really inspiring! Lots of happy sailors and regular folks came out for the receiving line!

    In a series of significant speeches at the Federalist Society’s national convention, the president’s lawyers have begun to articulate a framework for restoring the separation of powers: First, Congress should cease delegating its legislative power to the executive branch; second, the executive branch will stop using informal “guidance documents” that deprive people of the due process of law without fair notice; and third, courts should stop rubber-stamping diktats that lack the force of law.

    Executive power is often described as a one-way ratchet: Each president, Democrat or Republican, augments the authority his predecessor aggrandized. These three planks of the Trumpian Constitution — delegation, due process, and deference — are remarkable, because they do the exact opposite by ratcheting down the president’s authority. If Congress passes more precise statues, the president has less discretion. If federal agencies comply with the cumbersome regulatory process, the president has less latitude. If judges become more engaged and scrutinize federal regulations, the president receives less deference. Each of these actions would weaken the White House but strengthen the rule of law. To the extent that President Trump follows through with this platform, he can accomplish what few (myself included) thought possible: The inexorable creep of the administrative leviathan can be slowed down, if not forced into retreat.

      NeverTrump National Review needs to go on a cruise, or something. Buy stock in Depends perhaps.
      NeverTrump National Review has no standing in OUR President’s Presidency. Besides, no one is listening.
      NeverTrump National Review needs to sit down and shut up.

      No one can order anyone to break the law.

      Courts are to apply and enforce the law not break the law. These lawless butt munchers are getting on my last raw nerve

      If it wasn’t for President Trump and it being the Thanksgiving/Christmas Season I would be ready to blow this thing up and start over from scratch.

      80% of the people paying the fine make under 50K a year. Makes sense when you look at the premiums. Offer these people a catastrophic at a reasonable rate with a yearly physical thrown in or something…One thing I think most could agree on is that no person or family should go bankrupt because of health costs..People need at least a catastrophic choice…

    As I went about my day today and thinking about all the sexual scandals in the news
    it hit me how fast things are changing and where we’re truly headed.

    How do you MAGA? & The Power of a Trump Tweet

    Drain The swamp – is not just for congress
    Every swamp is getting drained at warp speed!
    soon we will return to valuing morals and values
    American Traditions
    and Hollywood won’t dare continue to make their swampy raunchy movies that
    go against American morals and values! and most importantly – they can’t sell it because we won’t buy it.

    Education swamp is being drained as well , soon we’ll see american flag raising /lowering ceremonies in our schools and the pledge of allegiance in ever class room across America
    Children will learn civics, respect, pride and patriotism again!
    (thanks NFL)

    Our churches are free to speak openly and congregations to gather and talk politics as well as religion -Amen

    The counter clock wise spin on Economics has slowed and is in the process of being reversed – Prosperity will rebound for everyone

    The worst of the worst in government positions are being outed and America will never tolerate it in our society… The say one thing do nothing days of politicians is OVER.

    IMHO- both political parties are 100% dead and out of the ashes will rise the Trumpian Party

    The Democratic base is being deported and what will remain will either be the old socialists who will die off or the young socialists who will see first hand what true capitalism is about and flip to the trumpian party.

    The Media will have no choice but to succumb. but I have a feeling there are things in the works (FCC, DOJ) that will ensure that swamp is drained as well.

    By the end of Trumps first term I see the wheels of world peace moving at warp speed just as nationalism is sweeping over globalism world wide.

    And each item above began with a tweet… and I suspect PDJT has secret operatives
    working in the shadows to aid the implosions we’re seeing today.

    “I’m very happy, I am very happy it’s getting exposed ” -PDJT

    President Trump will go down in history as no other before him has……
    The Greatest Leader of All Time.

    Anyone following Q today? Think “FlyEaglesFly” (fight song for Philadelphia Eagles) and USSS Eagle reference (Bill Clinton) might be pointing to this event that happened 2 days prior to election? Claims routine/local burglary with suspect in custody hours after which doesn’t fit, but could be they were downplaying:

    If you are at loose ends at any time this holiday weekend, try watching this. It is 1hr 20min. I watched the whole thing last night and enjoyed every minute of it. Like reliving the whole 2 years of the campaign but without the angst. Very well done. The outcome is what I am thankful for this year (along with those I love, of course.) I’m also thankful for TCH and all of you.

  29. Roy Moore is ahead of Jones in the Senate race again in the latest poll posted on RCP. He is also ahead in the polling average. However, RCP removed the Fox10/Strategy Research Poll released on 11/13 showing Moore ahead of Jones by +6, thereby keeping Jones ahead in the average poll results. RCP is manipulating the reporting of poll results to get an average favorable to Jones. Pathetic!!
