Laura Ingraham: ‘Maybe We’re Going to Have to Primary This President in 2020’ (Audio)

“This is the opportunity Donald Trump has to establish himself as a champion of the everyman,” she continued. “And he campaigned on that. Now he can actually be that. If he just does what he says he’s going to do in the campaign, he’ll be wildly popular. But he’s never going to please the DREAMers. He’s never going to please the Democrats. Even if he does a deal with the Democrats on the DREAMers, they’re not going to like him. They’re just going to use him.”

Friday on her nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Laura Ingraham shared some of the reactions she had gotten from her listeners about President Donald Trump’s reported deal with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy.

According to Ingraham, respondents were dissatisfied with Trump’s decision for the most part and added that some had even called for primarying him in 2020, which Ingraham indicated she was open to that suggestion.

“Your voices are being heard,” Ingraham said. “Your comments are being heard – everything from the word ‘outrage’ to ‘betrayal’ to ‘disappointment’ to ‘sadness’ to ‘primary him.’ That’s the other phrase we heard yesterday repeatedly. Look, we have to primary senators. Maybe we’re going to have to primary this president in 2020. We thought he was a conservative populist. We thought he was a nationalist on issues of immigration. If he is not, then we’re going to have to find someone who is.”

Ingraham: Americans Wanted ‘Drain the Swamp, Not Clear the Desert’ (Video)

LifeZette editor-in-chief says voters expect focus on jobs, don’t wish Afghanistan ‘to be our graveyard’

LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham said the American people “thought they were going to get ‘drain the swamp,’ not ‘clear the desert,’” during an interview Tuesday on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” — the day after President Donald Trump announced his plans to recommit to the war in Afghanistan.

Trump, who ran on a largely non-interventionist, “America First” foreign platform, acknowledged his reversal in a Monday night address to the nation and hinted that the U.S. would be sending more troops to Afghanistan. After nearly 17 years of U.S. involvement, Ingraham said she wasn’t “a big fan of a surge of troops in Afghanistan.”

“Is that really what the American people thought they were getting? They thought they were going to get ‘drain the swamp,’ not ‘clear the desert,'” she said. “I don’t think Americans want this to be our graveyard.”

Ingraham on Mob Toppling NC Confederate Statue: How Long Before They Show Up at Monticello, Mt Vernon? Are They Going to Start Burning Books? (Video)

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, editor of LifeZette, denounced protesters removing a statue of a Confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina, a day earlier.

Ingraham warned there could be other symbols from the past that could go next if this trend were to continue.

“This is not about racial healing or racial unity when you see property being destroyed,” Ingraham said. “That’s not what it’s about. It’s about the eradication of history and an acknowledgment that we had really difficult, horrible moments in our country’s history that we were able to overcome. And at the same time, we do give respect to the dead. I mean, all of our war dead. We respect them. Not respect everything they stood for, but respect the fact that, when the time came, they stood up and fought for their views and this country.”

“And I think, when you see people who have no idea, it seems, about the history of this country, just roundly denouncing anyone who had any connection to the South, we’re in very precarious times,” she continued. “I mean, how long before we see the Workers Party, as you saw them yesterday, the Communist Party of the United States was represented there in Durham. They had the big banners. They were marching down the streets. How long before they show up at Monticello, where I spent three years in law school at Charlottesville in Virginia? How long before they show up at Mount Vernon?”

Ingraham: Innocent People Are Paying the Price for Multiculturalism (Video)

“That’s what we all have to live with for the free and open society that [London Mayor] Sadiq Khan and all of these other multiculturalists want Britain to become,” Ingraham said. “This is the Nirvana they wanted to create, and this is what we have.”

Laura Ingraham appeared on “Fox & Friends” this morning to react to the London terror attack, which left seven people dead and dozens more injured.

British authorities have named Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, as the three attackers shot dead by police during Saturday’s rampage.

Butt was on authorities’ radar and even appeared in a 2016 television documentary called “The Jihadis Next Door.”

Ingraham said the number of individuals in the U.K. who have ties to terror groups is “staggering.”

“We’re not talking about a couple hundred. We’re talking about thousands and thousands,” she said.

RNC Chair: GOP Base Will ‘Walk Away’ in Midterms If Border Wall Is Not Built

She added members of Congress would “lose the trust of our base if we don’t keep our promises.”

Wednesday on the Laura Ingraham’s nationally syndicated radio show, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel said if Congress doesn’t help President Donald Trump begin to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall, voters will walk away from the GOP in 2018.

Ingraham asked, “The President comes out yesterday and says there’s going to be a wall. So what is the RNC doing specifically to push the Trump agenda and help it get traction in Congress?”

McDaniel replied, “Well I think part of it is communicating to our lawmakers what we are seeing on the ground. And I’m from Michigan. I was part of the Trump movement as a Michigan chair, and I know that our voters are going to hold us accountable in 2018 if we do not keep the campaign promises that were made. When you get to Washington, sometimes you forget what was said outside and it’s important that we bring that back to Washington and let them hear what the voters expect of this government and of the president.”

The GOP’s St. Crispin’s Day by Laura Ingraham

Republicans fighting to stop the Clintons won’t soon forget those who did nothing or openly subverted their efforts.

In Shakespeare’s legendary play, “Henry V,” the English army is outnumbered five to one by the French army just before the Battle of Agincourt. One of the English nobles wishes that they had “but one ten thousand of those men in England/That do no work today!” Overhearing this, King Henry responds with one of the most famous speeches in the English language. First, the king says that he doesn’t want help from anyone else:

If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.

Then he goes on to explain that he’s willing to let any man leave who has no stomach for the fight:

Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.

Finally, he reminds his army that they are fighting on the feast day of St. Crispin, and that whoever survives and makes it home will remember all of the great feats done by the English on that day:

And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d;

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Grover Norquist: Clintons Guilty of Tax Fraud

Hillary has a history of ducking taxes, took deduction for donating Bill’s used underwear.

Democrat Hillary Clinton wants higher taxes, but in the past has gone to ridiculous — and likely fraudulent — lengths to lighten her own burden, influential anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist said Friday.

In an appearance on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, pointed to a story from 1993 highlighting the fact that the Clintons had claimed a tax deduction for donating Bill Clinton’s used underwear to charity as far back as the 1980s.

The story got some attention at the time, but Norquist said a review of those tax returns turned up 10 pages of deductions that overvalued donated items by $1,300 to $1,500.

“Hillary Clinton has not paid the taxes she owes … This is tax fraud,” said Norquist. “People go to jail. They get massive fines for giving a car to charity and misrepresenting the value of the car.”

Norquist said the claimed deductions were “so far out of line with what” with what charities like the Salvation Army and Goodwill Industries estimate for the value of similar items.

Ed Rollins: ‘Bush Wing’ of the GOP Is ‘Definitely Gone’

Campaign director for Reagan-Bush ’84 says globalist Republicans ‘will not be coming back’ in 2020.

Republican campaign consultant Ed Rollins said that the “Bush wing” of the GOP is gone and won’t be coming back anytime soon during a Tuesday interview on “The Laura Ingraham Show.”

Rollins, the co-chairman of the pro-Trump Great America PAC and formerly the national campaign director for Ronald Reagan’s 1984 presidential campaign, predicted Trump supporters will walk out on the Republican Party if GOP leaders refuse to listen to their voices.

“I think the Bush wing is definitely gone and obviously it’s not coming back in the short run,” Rollins told LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham. “There were very significant players who didn’t get where the country was, and they underestimated the Trump support. They underestimated the message that was out there.”

Saying that there will be no “automatic heir apparent” to the Republican Party if the divisive 2016 election ends with a Trump loss, Rollins expressed his concern over whether House Speaker Paul Ryan would “compromise our principles” and cooperate with Hillary Clinton to move her agenda forward.

“If that occurs, I think obviously there’s not going to be much left — it’s over,” Rollins said. “And I think we’ve become a congressional party as opposed to a presidential party. I think Trump jumped in front of that, took advantage of it, did a very effective job of communicating with the grassroots about the problems that they face. I don’t know if the Establishment Republicans will pick that up when this is all over.”

Ingraham Angle: Ryan Runs Against Trump

Pro-globalization wing of the GOP relies on a fantasy constituency.

A memo to the anti-Trump, pro-globalization wing of the GOP:

The day after a strong debate performance by your party’s nominee, you decided not to celebrate it, but to dismiss and distract from it. You called your friends in the press and told them about “the coming GOP stampede” away from Trump. If you succeed in helping Democrats elect Hillary Clinton, you — not he — will be held responsible for losing the Supreme Court and busting up the Republican Party.

Regarding your “constituency” within the party, you have an outsized imagination. Consider the facts:

There were 31,183,841 votes cast in the 2016 GOP nominating process.

Marco Rubio got 3,515,576 votes, or 11.3 percent.

John Kasich got 4,290,448 votes, or 13.8 percent.

Jeb Bush got 286,694 votes, or 0.2 percent.

So Team Globalization garnered a whopping 26 percent of the vote.

Ted Cruz alone got 7,822,100 votes, or 25.1 percent.

Trump got 14,015,993 votes, or 44.9 percent.

So the GOP voters, when given a chance, overwhelmingly rejected Team Globalization and all its pundits. And those voters are going to remember that Team Globalization (and its pundits) did everything possible to throw this election to Hillary.
