Trump won’t throw out first pitch — but not because he can’t

(Screenshot via Twitter)

The White House declined an offer from the Washington Nationals to have President Donald Trump throw out the first pitch for Opening Day, citing a scheduling conflict. For decades, presidents have occasionally thrown out the first pitch for Washington’s team. Some are already accusing him of being afraid to embarrass himself — like President Obama […]

Who is ‘SCOTUS’? Why millennials should care about Gorsuch

The original article appeared in the Washington Examiner.  When Jimmy Kimmel asked millennials on the streets of New York CIty how they felt about President Trump nominating Rob Kardashian to the Supreme Court, they took the question seriously. About 10 percent of college graduates think Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court, according to a […]

Remember when Trump promised one health reform? It wasn’t in the AHCA. [VIDEO]

(Screenshot)

Donald Trump is out tweeting, again. This time, he’s blaming the House Freedom Caucus for the failure of the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Similarly, he’s accused conservatives of abandoning their campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare by not supporting the AHCA. Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help […]

Kill RyanCare’s remake of the individual mandate

(AP Photo)

It’s crunch time. House Speaker Paul Ryan promised a vote today on his plan to (partially) repeal and replace Obamacare. The last 48 hours brought countless changes and compromises to add more GOP votes — yet one terrible, awful, dumb provision remains. The bill still demands insurance companies charge 30 percent extra to any costumers […]

Junk poll is fake news: 57% of millennials call Trump “illegitimate”

(AP Photo)

We saw the poll when it first came out but doubted anyone would take it seriously because of its dubious methodology and the polling group’s history of inaccuracy. But now, the Associated Press and NBC have featured it, so it needs to be addressed. This poll is literally fake news — the poll is provably fabricated due to a sampling bias. […]

CBO projections: Millennials would win bigly under TrumpCare

(AP Photo)

Opponents of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) have been on a 24-hour blitz bashing the Obamacare replacement using a new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The report shows 24 million people will either lose or forgo coverage in the next ten years, mostly from the repeal of the individual mandate. But ignored in the […]

Millennial Policy Center praises Obamacare replacement

Responses are pouring in to House Republicans’ new plan to repeal and replace Obamacare: The American Health Care Act. You can read the plan (and know what’s in it) by reading it here. How does the plan affect millennials? Siraj Hashmi documents a new Kaiser Family Foundation study here showing its major benefits for millennials. […]

No, millennials will not save the Democratic Party

(AP Photo)

President Obama’s campaign alumni think they have figured out how to resurrect the Democratic Party in the age of Donald Trump: rely on millennial voters. This weekend, The Atlantic asked, “Can Millennials Save the Democratic Party?” Dan Pfieffer, former White House counselor to President Barack Obama, seemed optimistic, saying, “This could be a generational opportunity for the Democrats to lock […]

To get tired of winning, Trump can’t get tired of staying focused

(AP Photo)

This last week should have been about President Donald Trump’s impressive, surprising, and inspiring Joint Address to Congress that was universally praised. It should have been about organic rallies popping up nationwide to support Trump. Yet, thanks to the Tweeter-in-Chief, people have largely forgotten about the speech. Trump ate his own polling bump. Now, Americans […]

Leftist admits to spreading “Trump” Russian flags at CPAC [VIDEO]

(via Screenshot)

A clever group of leftist activists tricked CPAC attendees into waving flags modeled after the Russian flag with “Trump” printed on them. While attendees probably figured the red, white, and blue were just American patriotic colors, if you take “Trump” off of them, it is indeed the Russian flag. CPAC workers grabbed the flags and kicked […]

Red Alert’s Snowflake Coloring Book featured as most popular CPAC swag

(via RAP)

Even conservative millennials love free stuff — especially free stuff mocking oversensitive campus liberals. Every year, groups and publications flock to CPAC to market their brands, and this year, Red Alert decided to get into the mix. I wish I could take credit for this, but I can’t. Catherine Lowe, from our parent company MediaDC, […]

Can Trump bring millennials into the GOP?

"I believe we will see these new young conservatives become involved as activists, conservative bloggers and hopefully even candidates for office," said New Hampshire Rep. Yvonne Dean-Bailey. (Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images)

No polling was more wrong last November than those predicting how millennials would vote. More than 2 million more millennials voted for President Trump than was forecast by millennial polling averages. He polled at 25 percent among people under 30, but won 37 percent of this demographic. That’s a higher percentage than the Republican nominees […]

Trump’s mistake? Not communicating with “the swamp”

(AP Photo)

While the media and protestors have pushed largely false narratives on President Trump’s executive order on immigration — calling it a “Muslim ban” (40+ Muslim-majority countries aren’t included in the order) and unprecedentedly un-American (President Obama restricted immigration from certain Middle East countries too) — certain criticism has been legitimate. And preventable. First, it’s pretty […]

Why won’t the Obama Foundation provide free healthcare and tuition?

(via Obama.org)

As is common among former presidents, President Barack Obama has started a charitable foundation to serve causes he cares about after his time in office. The Obama Foundation website says it will, “focus on developing the next generation of citizens — and what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century.” Of […]

DeVos vs. Sanders on free college: “Nothing in life is really free” [VIDEO]

Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos arrives with former senator Joe Lieberman (right) and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., before testifying Tuesday on Capitol Hill at her confirmation hearing.

Betsy DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Education, had… let’s say ‘lively’ questions from Senate Democrats at Tuesday’s confirmation hearings. One of the most interesting moments came during Senator Bernie Sanders’ questions. Sanders, an admitted socialist and proponent of tuition-free college, challenged DeVos, saying, “some of us believe we should make […]

Obama’s Legacy: U.S. ranks 23rd of 30 on economic inequality

(AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh)

No matter which Party or ideology you belong to, growing economic inequality should concern you. If America’s economy isn’t producing economic empowerment for vast swaths of the country, no one should be satisfied. Democrats tend to talk more about inequality — especially President Obama and Senator Bernie Sanders — but the latest report from the […]

Dear Republicans: Listen to Rand Paul (& Donald Trump) on Obamacare repeal

(AP Photo)

Someone please tell me congressional Republicans aren’t this dim. Any plan to repeal Obamacare without a conservative replacement, with phasing out of the least destructive elements slowly, is doomed to disturb millions of Americans —  many of whom have already seen spiking premiums and deductibles under Obamacare. Not only are Republicans considering repealing without replacement, […]

Only 14 Senators wanted to balance the budget and save millennials from debt

(Via Screenshot)

Senate Republicans proved this week that most of them aren’t serious about leaving a sustainable federal government to future generations. Senator Rand Paul put forth a reasonable alternative budget proposal earlier this week to balance the budget within five years, while also maintaining the language needed to repeal Obamacare. The current Republican leadership-backed version would […]

The irony of Pelosi’s “Grandma living in the guest room” remark [VIDEO]

(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Former Speaker and current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said some hyperbolic — and often accidentally funny — remarks in her long career. Speaking on Wednesday about what will happen if Obamacare is repealed, she said, “You want Grandma living in the guest room? You repeal the Affordable Care Act. You go along with–this […]
