Sources at NBC News say that Mitt Romney will meet this weekend with President-elect Trump to discuss serving as Secretary of State. This is a surprising development given Romney's actions and statements in the past year. If the reports are accurate, it would be a very magnanimous gesture on Trump's part that could go a long way toward healing divisions in the Republican Party.

Fighting The Left-wing Smear Machine
Yesterday, I wrote at length about the left's attempt to smear former Breitbart CEO and top Trump strategist Steve Bannon. It is nothing more than a pre-emptive strike against those in the new administration who will most aggressively fight the left's agenda.

Obama's Farewell Tour
President Obama held a lengthy press conference yesterday before leaving on his last foreign trip, a farewell tour of sorts. You no doubt recall that Obama began his presidency in similar fashion -- with an overseas apology tour.
The White House said that the purpose of this trip is to reassure foreign leaders that the new Trump Administration isn't going to bring turmoil to our relationships with other countries. But this is coming from a president who has spent the past eight years creating turmoil in our relationships with other countries.

President-elect Donald Trump is being very astute in his initial personnel decisions. He knows he will face fierce resistance from the media and the D.C. establishment. He also knows he cannot be at war with both the Democrats and Republicans in Congress. With that in mind, Trump selected Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to be White House Chief of Staff.

Trump/Pence Come To Washington
President-elect Donald Trump is in Washington today. He met with President Obama at the White House this morning to discuss an orderly transition of power. As some in the media have noted, this meeting will undoubtedly be "one of the most humbling moments of Obama's presidency."
This afternoon, President-elect Trump and Vice President-elect Pence met with Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Yesterday, Ryan issued a very gracious statement, promising to work hand-in-hand next year with President Trump.
|Debate Night, Border Security Is National Security, Vote||

When Do Babies Get Rights?
During a recent interview with an Iowa radio station, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards was asked a really tough question -- at least for her. Host Doug Wagner asked, "At what point does that child -- or that unborn person, fetus -- whatever you want to call it -- at what point does that baby get the constitutional rights?"
Richards said, "Well, I don't really, actually -- I don't know that there's an exact answer for that." Let that sink in for a moment.

ISIS Embraces "Stabbing Intifada"
In its latest message to would-be jihadis, ISIS is embracing the so-called "stabbing intifada" that Palestinian extremists have been waging against Israelis for the past year. The group pointed to Dahir Adan, the Somali immigrant who attacked 10 people at a Minnesota mall, as an example for others to follow.
Consider some of these excerpts:

As you know, there has been a string of professional athletes, college athletes and band members disrespecting the police. It has spread to city councils around the country where liberal politicians are now disrespecting the flag.

Obama Needs A Geography Lesson
After President Obama spoke at last week's funeral of late Israeli President Shimon Peres, the White House made a bold and offensive statement. It attempted to deny that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
The White House initially sent out a release noting the president's remarks at the funeral in "Jerusalem, Israel." But a "corrected" release was subsequently issued with "Israel" crossed out from the header.
