Donald Trump Caps Off Two-Week Comeback

Published

This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The Daily Caller:

In two weeks, President Donald Trump pulled off a miraculous series of upset victories, beat down his opponents’ attacks on him, and stabilized a White House that was always doing pretty well but wasn’t letting people know how well it was doing. Trump is clearly back in control of the narrative and stronger than ever.

His speech in Nashville Wednesday night railed against the corruption of the Ninth Circuit Court and the rogue judge in Hawaii trying to block his immigration order. But the biggest applause break of the night was his jab at Hillary Clinton. The crowd interrupted Trump for an extended period of time to chant “Lock Her Up.” This was the kind of moment in a Trump rally where the crowd is telling him to do something. This is the moment that never existed in Obama rallies — the moment where populism gets reciprocated. Earlier in the night, President Trump did an interview with Fox primetime star Tucker Carlson in industrial Detroit. Carlson offered a thoughtful line of commentary. Trump refused to confirm his opposition to Muslim migration to the United States, but he said that he thinks it’s had a bad track record on assimilation.

Furthermore, Rachel Maddow is utterly humiliated for running a big scoop about Trump’s tax returns, which showed him paying $38 million to the government, in addition to the fact that Trump hotel profits are now going to the U.S. Treasury, an institution that his predecessor embezzled from. Rachel Maddow is a terrible broadcaster who orates as though everything she says is important (playing the emotion and not the beat). Her entire career has consisted of tiny fake scoops propped up by the fact that no one who watches her has any news judgment.

This is a comeback for Donald Trump’s America.

Let’s go back to March 2, exactly two weeks ago. Trump was trying to get a comeback going after his big speech to the Joint Session of Congress. His speech was amazing so his establishment Deep State enemies, aligned with Barack Obama, went after Jeff Sessions. They pulled up an Al Franken quote and accused Sessions of meeting with the Russian ambassador. Sessions met with the Russian ambassador at the convention in Cleveland at an event co-sponsored by the Heritage Foundation and set up by the Obama State Department. Sessions recused himself from potential “Russia” investigations. CNN trained a camera on the Oval Office window through the blinds and said that Trump’s advisers were yelling at each other. The president was getting drowned in the fishbowl.

So he took to Twitter. His tweets about the Russian ambassador situation were gold. He called for investigations into Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for eating donuts with Putin. It sparked the headline “From old photo to right-wing meme to Trump’s Twitter.” Then Trump revealed that the Obama administration was surveilling Trump Tower during the campaign, pointing to a FISA request granted by the FBI. Rush Limbaugh delivered arguably his best monologue of the Trump era that afternoon. “Obamagate” was born.

Julian Assange seized the opportunity to release his “Vault 7” files showing that the CIA spies on the American people through many of their electrical devices. The Begin-Sadat Center did a report showing how the Russians helped Democrats in elections for decades, culminating in a major behind-the-scenes battle over General Flynn’s role as National Security Adviser.  CNN ran a hit piece about how Steve Bannon said Joe McCarthy’s anti-Communist motives were basically just, but they got their wires crossed because that was a narrative-killing thing for them to do. The whole Russia story started to die.

Trump is playing at a pretty high level right now, as evidenced by his ability to formally endorse the House Obamacare replacement bill while his supporters agitate against it. His supporters are not holding him responsible because they think he’s playing a long game that involves Rand Paul coming in and re-writing it. Details were not forthcoming in Nashville.

Trump tweeted respectfully on International Women’s Day, met with Elijah Cummings of the House Democratic caucus, and invited Washington D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser for an emergency meeting on snow preparations.

His administration seems like it is doing well.

In Republican-Controlled Wyoming, A Gun Rights Group is Now being Forced to Reveal its Donors

Violation of privacy.

The Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office is cracking down on a pro-Second Amendment organization by forcing it to reveal its donors. This move was spurred by a campaign that Wyoming Gun Owners launched last summer in which it attacked a number of incumbent elected officials in races across the state.

In a letter that the office published on October 14, 2020 Wyoming Gun Owners allegedly did follow the state’s campaign finance law.

The organization pulled off a number victories by unseating incumbent lawmakers last summer and has released advertisement targeting various candidates in the elections on November 3, which includes Riverton Republican Ember Oakley and Democrat Britney Wallesch.

The pro-Second Amendment organization has been around Wyoming politics for some time and publicly disclosed that it is paying for advertisements. However, its lack of registry with the state as either a lobbying organization or a political action committee runs afoul of state guidelines.

“The Secretary of State’s Office has reviewed the advertisements paid for by WYGO and determined that they are clearly electioneering communications,” the letter stated. “As such, WYGO failed to comply with the requirements set forth in Wyo. Stat. § 22-25-106(h).”

It wasn’t until a few months ago that the group’s activities have not been reported within the state government. The Wyoming government cannot initiate the investigation on electioneering activity allegations unless someone files a formal complaint.

An initial complaint was first reported by the Riverton Ranger newspaper earlier this month. It did not gather any further steam because it was lacking in evidence to support the allegations. Subsequently, a second complaint with proper documentation was filed with the state not too long after, which prompted the Secretary of State to take action.

Wyoming Gun Owners now has until November 4 to disclose the names of its donors or be slapped with a $500 fine.

If the group refuses to follow the state’s order, the case will then be kicked to the Wyoming Attorney General, according to secretary of state spokesperson Monique Meese.

“Then we take their advice about what to do going forward,” she stated.

State Senator Anthony Bouchard founded Wyoming Gun Owners almost a decade ago. Nowadays, it is run by various members of the Dorr Family, who operate a network of pro-gun organizations pushing for pro-Second Amendment policies.

Aaron Dorr, Wyoming Gun Owners’ executive director, has had public disputes with elected officials such as Senate Vice President Ogden Driskill, who has repeatedly criticized the organization’s tactics during the 2020 election cycle.

The pro-gun organization bolstered its reputation by killing a firearm reporting bill in 2019 sponsored by former Campbell County Sheriff and current State Representative Bill Pownall.  Wyoming Gun Owners ran ads supporting Bill Fortner, Pownall’s opponent. Throughout these ad blasts, Pownall was depicted as anti-gun. Fortner ended up winning in a landslide.

Such a case shows how even Republican governments will go out of their way to prop up incumbents and infringe on the privacy rights of organizations that wish to restore freedoms such as the Second Amendment. Just because politicians have an “R”s beside their name does not guarantee that they will protect individuals’ rights.
