|Trump's Prediction, Progress Report, Poll Position||
During yesterday's White House press conference, President Trump berated the media for its dishonesty and hateful tone. He spoke for nearly 80 minutes and covered a wide range of topics. He also predicted that the media would grossly distort the press conference.
The president said, "Tomorrow they will say 'Donald Trump rants and raves.' I'm not ranting and raving."
Well, guess what? He was right! And the reaction was immediate.

How Crazy Are Things?
We've warned you before, but from this moment on everything you read in the mainstream press or watch on the evening news should be viewed very skeptically until you get confirmation from a source you trust. The left is resorting to non-stop fake news to undermine the trust of the American people and scare weak-kneed politicians on Capitol Hill.

With Michael Flynn's resignation, there is blood in the water, and the leftist sharks are circling in a frenzy, eagerly looking for their next victim.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said yesterday, "Gen. Flynn's resignation is not the end of the story. It is merely the beginning." One reporter summarized it well, saying, "Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entree."

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn resigned his position as national security adviser last night. Flynn's resignation ends a sad and disturbing chapter.
The long knives have been out for Flynn ever since he was forced out of the Obama Administration because he repeatedly said that too little was being done to fight Islamofascism. He also publicly opposed Obama's nuclear deal with the Islamist regime in Iran.

Law Enforcement & The Left
We got another glimpse into the left-wing mindset over the weekend. And no, this isn't about the Grammys. (More on that below.)

As expected, the judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Trump Administration yesterday. But let's be clear about the ruling. The court DID NOT declare the president's executive order unconstitutional.
This was a ruling only on a procedural motion -- lifting the injunction against the order's enforcement. It did not address the merits of the case or the constitutionality of the order.

Senator Jeff Sessions, President Trump's nominee for attorney general, was finally confirmed last night. After weeks of leaving the Justice Department decapitated, the left finally ran out of stalling tactics. The vote was 52-to-47, virtually along party lines. Only one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, voted for Sessions.

A three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments late yesterday afternoon in a case challenging President Trump's order pausing immigration from seven nations known to be hotbeds of radical Islamic terrorism. A decision is expected at any time. To most observers, the judges seemed hostile to the government's position.

Order In The Court
President Trump's executive order imposing a moratorium on immigration from seven terrorist-infested countries is back in court today. This afternoon, three judges from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments via conference call.
Regrettably, I am not optimistic about the outcome. Two of the three judges -- one Carter appointee and one Obama appointee -- are left-wing judicial activists.

Judging Trump's Order
Friday afternoon, a federal judge in Seattle suspended President Trump's executive order halting refugees from entering the country. Over the weekend, an emergency request by the Trump Administration to reinstate the president's order was denied. I think it is important to revisit the issue to better understand why President Trump took the action he did.
