President Donald Trump is being assailed from all sides. But the biggest threat to his presidency isn’t the militant liberals or their amen corner in the fake news media. It’s his own Republican Party.
At what point will GOP leaders recognize the search-and-destroy mission of the Trump haters and actually rally behind the president and begin to fight back?
Why hasn’t the Republican-controlled Congress already subpoenaed Loretta Lynch over her instruction to disgraced former FBI chief James Comey to refer to the Hillary Clinton investigation as a “matter” after that secret airport meeting with Bill Clinton? What the hell are they waiting for?
And sorry, I love conservative author/columnist Ann Coulter, but it’s not helpful for her to be sniping at Trump over delays in building The Wall.
Rome wasn’t build in a day…and the White House has been a little pre-occupied fending off all the “Republican hunting” attacks (literally), as well as trying to get Republicans in Congress to get their stuff together and repeal ObamaCare and reform the tax system.
These times are trying GOP souls. Summer soldiers and sunshine partisans need to suck it up, strap on their boots and engage aggressively…before it’s too late.

P.S. Have you ever had to pick up a prescription from your local pharmacist? If so, you know you have to sign a form stating that you received information related to that prescription before being allowed to take it with you. Takes all of two seconds. Hardly invasive.
But optometrists – who, unlike ophthalmologists, aren’t “real” doctors – are having a veritable cow over a new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule requiring them to do the same thing.
The problem stems from the fact that optometrists – who provide eye tests to determine if you need glasses or contacts – are the only medical professionals who are allowed to both ISSUE a prescription and FILL the prescription (at significant profit) in their own offices.
Talk about a captured audience!
The problems started when big discount retailers – such as Costco and Sam’s Club – along with online retailers – such as 1-800-Contacts and Lens.com – began competing head-to-head with the optometrists and shrinking their market share. In response…
“Specialization is not your friend. . . . The longer you stay in school, the more specialized you often become. You know more and more about less and less. . . . Entrepreneurship favors generalists. The more you read, see, hear, and do, the greater your life experiences become. Live your life believing that knowing a little about a lot is a good thing.” – Donald Trump, “Midas Touch” (2011)

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
The Democrats’ Best GOP Friends in the Nevada Legislature
Reporters Megan Messerly and Jackie Valley of the new Nevada News Bureauthat Citizen Outreach founded back in 2009 published a report over the weekend analyzing how many times Republican legislators “broke with their caucus” and voted with their Democrat colleagues during the 2017 session.
Now, this research includes all votes – and not all votes are on issues in which there is a clear philosophical difference between the parties.But such a report is definitely smoke that indicates there’s a RINO (Republican in Name Only) fire lurking below the surface.Some observations…
The reporters looked at 91 bills in the Assembly in which seven or fewer of the 15 Republicans voted with the Democrats – and, wow, what a stark difference between the best and the worst.
Of those 91 votes, conservative freshman Assemblyman Jim Marchant of Las Vegas only voted with the D’s three times (3 percent).On the other end of the spectrum, liberal freshman Assemblywoman Jill Tolles of Reno sided with the D’s and against her GOP colleagues a staggering 70 times (77 percent).
Ladies and gentleman, I think we’ve found the RINO Queen!
Other conservative Republicans in the Assembly who only rarely voted with the far-left Democrat majority in 2017 include Assemblyman Richard McArthur (4), John Ellison (6) and Robin Titus (9).
Other Republicans in the Assembly who often helped give Democrats “bi-partisan” aid-and-comfort include freshman Keith Pickard (55), Minority Leader Paul Anderson (52), Chris “Let’s Make a Deal” Edwards (43), Al Kramer (43), Melissa Woodbury (36), John Hambrick (35) and James “The Big Selloutski” Oscarson (34).
Over in the Senate, the reporters took a look at 35 votes and tallied any bill that received four or fewer GOP votes.
Leading the GOP’s Aid-and-Comfort Caucus in the upper house was Sen. Becky Harris with 25 out of 35 votes (71 percent) with the Democrats instead of the majority of her Republican colleagues.Coming in second place is liberal Sen.Heidi Gansert (R-UNR) with 21.In third place is liberal Sen. Joe Hardy with 14.
In contrast, conservative Sen. Don Gustavson voted with the Democrats onlyONE time out of the 35.
Again, for conservative ratings purposes it will be important to look at each of these individual bills to make sure there’s a philosophical component, not just a partisan one, to determine whether any of these folks who voted with the D’s so often are, indeed, liberal sell-outs.
But as they say, if it walks like a RINO and votes like a RINO…it’s probably a RINO.
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“First of all, nobody deserves what happened out there.There are crazy people in the world... We have to minimize that type of stuff.As far as the people that were injured, it's an absolute shame.You just want them to recover. Fortunately, the guy was a really bad shot. Liberals can't even shoot straight." – Caitlyn Jenner on the “Republican hunting” baseball field shooting in Virginia last week
