Nigel Farage at CPAC:

“What happened in 2016 is the beginning of a great, global revolution. And this will roll out across the rest of the West. We’ve got some very exciting elections coming up: in the Netherlands, in France, in Germany, possibly even in Italy. And believe me, I don’t yet know whether the results in 2017 will be as dramatic as the results in 2016. But what I do know is that even if the challengers don’t get over the line this year, what they will do is shift the center of gravity of the entire debate.”

Perhaps the president could tour the wall in October 2018, and let Americans register their support in November:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Friday that it plans to start awarding contracts by mid-April for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, signaling that he is aggressively pursuing plans to erect “a great wall” along the 2,000-mile border.

The agency said it will request bids on or around March 6 and that companies would have to submit “concept papers” to design and build prototypes by March 10, according to FedBizOpps.gov, a website for federal contractors. The field of candidates will be narrowed by March 20, and finalists must submit offers with their proposed costs by March 24.

The president told the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday that construction will start “very soon” and is “way, way, way ahead of schedule.”

Because, since these senators were last elected, the Republican tilt of their states has increased by a percentage greater than their margin of victory.

We’ve already seen the effects of this realignment in Iowa, where Tea Party favorite Joni Ernst won what was supposed to be a close race by 9 points. Iowa now has two conservative Republican senators.

State 2012 Romney margin of victory 2016 Trump margin of victory Change from 2012 to 2016 Dem senator’s 2012 margin of victory
North Dakota 20% 36% R +16% 1%
Indiana 11% 19% R +8% 5%
Montana 14% 20% R +6% 4%
Missouri 10% 19% R +9% 10% (versus Todd Akin + Libertarian candidate)
Ohio -2% 9% R +11% 6%
Wisconsin -7% 1% R +8% 5%

Thanks to Brexit:

Copeland, created in 1983, and its predecessor constituency Whitehaven have returned Labour MPs since 1935.

Mrs Harrison got 44.3% of the vote, increasing the Conservatives’ vote share by more than 8%. She overturned a Labour majority of more than 2,564 to take the seat by 2,147 votes – a swing of more than 6%.

Professor John Curtice, of Strathclyde University, said the Copeland result was the best by-election performance by a governing party in terms of the increase in its share of the vote since January 1966.

[…]

It will be taken by her supporters as a vindication of [Prime Minister Theresa May’s] hard-edged drive towards Brexit and her break with the more metropolitan politics of David Cameron.

With felony charges:

A total of 214 people have been indicted so far on felony rioting charges in connection with the Inauguration Day protests in downtown Washington.

[…]

On Tuesday, a grand jury in DC charged five individuals. This was in addition to the 209 other defendants who’ve been indicted on rioting charges earlier this month. Felony rioting carries a maximum of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.

Good luck getting a job, “protesters.” Assuming y’all didn’t already give up on that with your tattoos and whatnot…

Good News!

The president will be too busy partying to watch the Oscars. I hope Americans from all walks of life emulate his example.

And remember: When you spend money on Hollywood, Hollywood uses your money to attack you, your family, your church, your president, your country, and your way of life. Don’t give money to Hollywood!

Trump Splits North Korea from China!

Four days ago, President Trump’s strategy towards North Korea began to bear fruit, as the Chinese cut off coal imports, depriving the North Koreans of half their exports in foreign currency.

Now North Korea seems to be intent on alienating China, critiquing the country very publicly:

North Korea appeared to lash out at Beijing in a state-media commentary published on Thursday, in unusually pointed rhetoric from Pyongyang toward a powerful neighbor that it has long relied on for economic support.

The commentary, published by the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency, didn’t name China, but left little doubt about its target: “a neighboring country, which often claims itself to be a ‘friendly neighbor’.”

In particular, the article lambasted China for playing down North Korea’s nuclear capabilities, and for curbing foreign trade—an apparent reference to China’s statement over the weekend that it would suspend coal imports from North Korea for the rest of the year.

[…]

In Thursday’s piece, North Korea even adopted a mocking tone, saying that the country is “styling itself a big power, is dancing to the tune of the U.S.”

I’m sure that’ll win the Chinese over.
