POLITICS 06/23/2018 08:00 am ET Tommy Ewing-Brown initially refused to serve a group of Trump supporters a week before the election. By Arthur Delaney WASHINGTON ― It was about a week before the 2016 election, and Tommy Ewing-Brown had several angry Donald Trump supporters on the other side of the bar where he worked with their cellphone cameras pointed at him. “So you’re not going to let us come in here and have a drink because you don’t like Trump?” one of them said. “Yes,” Ewing-Brown told them. “I don’t like racist bigots.” The scene foreshadowed the heckling several Trump administration officials received in D.C. restaurants this week. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner at a Mexican restaurant was ruined when a group of protesters stormed the restaurant, yelling about her agency’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents. And someone … [Read more...] about This Bartender Got Fired For Being Rude To Trump Supporters. He Doesn’t Regret It.

DONALD Trump is showing no sign of backing down after Democrats — who control the US House of Representatives — rejected Trump's demand for £4.4billion ($5.7 bn) to help build such a wall. But the President has said he would consider declaring a national emergency to bypass Congress and power forward with constructing the wall without its approval. Could Trump issue state of emergency over Mexico Border Wall? Trump said he could declare a national emergency to circumvent Congress and spend money as he saw fit. But such a move would seem certain to draw legal challenges. The White House has not said what about the situation makes it a national emergency. Incoming House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith, D-Wash., said on ABC's "This Week" that the executive power has been used to build military facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet it would likely be "wide open" to a court challenge for a border wall. Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," Intelligence … [Read more...] about Could Trump issue state of emergency over Mexico Border Wall and what did Mike Pence say?
A new book, "Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism" by Ian Bremmer, looks at some of the consequences of increased international connections, growing nationalism around the world, and support for anti-establishment politicians. In the book, Bremmer argues that disaffected voters are responsible for the rise of populists like Donald Trump, who won the U.S. presidency by promoting anti-establishment, anti-immigrant and anti-globalist sentiments. He writes: "It's easy to find fault with populists like Trump. He's obnoxious, dishonest, and incompetent. But Donald Trump didn't create "us vs. them." "Us vs. them" created Donald Trump, and those who dismiss his supporters are damaging the United States." Excerpt: Trump didn't create "Us vs. Them" — it created him Appearing on "CBS This Morning," Bremmer – a CBS News senior global affairs contributor and president of the Eurasia Group – said that Americans who have suffered from the rise in globalism should … [Read more...] about “Us vs. Them” author Ian Bremmer: Don’t blame Trump supporters, blame people who didn’t vote
AMERICAN FORK, Utah — Jon McNaughton did not intend to become the country’s most famous pro-Trump, mass-market painter of the 21st century. But then, to achieve such an identity does require a modicum of cultivation; it does not happen overnight. In 2008, the Utah artist was selling landscapes out of a gallery in a shopping mall. Then the presidential election happened and McNaughton, who didn’t like John McCain or Barack Obama, was struck with inspiration. The result, “One Nation Under God,” was a massive canvas featuring Jesus Christ holding a copy of the Constitution, surrounded by Davy Crockett, Ronald Reagan and 61 other historical figures dismayed by the direction of the country (Satan, also in the painting, was pleased). It wasn’t particularly subtle, but something about the work spoke to people and a new creative doorway was opened. Jon McNaughton with his latest work, "Expose the Truth." The Utah artist has become the most famous … [Read more...] about Utah artist finds his niche with Trump supporters

U.S. Tomi Lahren Roseanne Barr Donald Trump Fox News Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren called comedian Roseanne Barr’s tweet that prompted ABC to cancel her show “wrong” and denounced Trump supporters who stood behind Barr and her racist remark. “What Roseanne tweeted was wrong,” Lahren said on Thursday during her “Final Thoughts” segment. “And there’s no way around it, and as Trump supporters, we shouldn’t play mental gymnastics trying to justify it.
