David Bossie Op-Ed: Liberal media wrong about 2020

First they said he would never run for president.  Then they said he would never be the Republican nominee for president.  Then they said he could never be elected president.  The latest false narrative being pushed by the liberal media is that some Republicans are making moves to run against President Trump in 2020. 

These fake news stories are in the interests of the liberal agenda because they raise manufactured questions about the president’s standing with Republican primary voters and are meant to cause division among conservatives. Try as they might, the American people are too smart for the elitist gamesmanship going on in the boardrooms at the New York Times and Washington Post.

Here’s the unfortunate reality for liberal Democrats and other so-called “Never Trumpers:” President Trump is in great shape with grassroots conservatives (regardless of party affiliation) across the country and with good reason. He’s making good on his promises.

On pro-life issues, the National Right to Life Committee gave President Trump an "A" grade for his performance through his first 100 days in office. On 2nd Amendment rights, President Trump is the first president to address the National Rifle Association leadership forum in 34 years and their Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said that he sees “a tremendous pride wave out there in the heartland of the country with this president.” Social conservative leaders praised President Trump’s recent decision to not allow transgender people to serve in the military. And if all this isn’t enough to satisfy conservatives, Justice Neil Gorsuch’s stellar service on the Supreme Court is icing on the cake.

There’s much more that conservatives like about the job President Trump is doing. When it comes to sanctuary city reform and border security, President Trump’s leadership has exceeded all expectations. In fact, President Trump has been so effective in dealing with sanctuary city lawlessness that elitist liberal Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is suing the Trump Administration to try and keep Chicago a dangerous sanctuary city.

I could go on and on, but one thing is clear: President Trump is an outsider and a change agent and conservatives are elated that President Trump wakes up in the morning to fight the failed status quo in Washington and the biased mainstream news media that only does the bidding of out-of-touch liberals in New York and San Francisco.

No one knows this better than Vice President Mike Pence. Since becoming President Trump’s running mate a little over a year ago, Vice President Pence has been a full partner with the president in their mission to enact their conservative reform agenda and “Make America Great Again.” The vice president is focused like a laser beam on fixing health care, tax reform, and various other initiatives and is doing a great job. When Vice President Pence travels to Iowa or Ohio to advocate for the president’s agenda it means exactly that and nothing more. President Trump and Vice President Pence are looking forward to defeating Congresswoman Maxine Waters or whatever leftist the out-of-control Democrat Party nominates in 2020.

Also mentioned in some of these disingenuous “news” stories has been career politician John Kasich. Ohio Governor Kasich ran for president in 2000 and 2016. In 2000, he didn’t make it to the primaries and in 2016 he won only his home state of Ohio. President Trump carried Ohio and other Rust Belt states during the general election because his outsider message connected with millions of voters in a way Kasich could not, largely because he was a longtime Washington politician.

President Trump has been in office for only 200 days and yet the mainstream media is already trying to start the 2020 campaign for president. Are there really Americans out there itching to start watching coverage of the 2020 race even before the 2018 midterms take place? Or is it just because contentious presidential elections are the only thing that sells failing newspapers anymore?

I submit that most reasonable hardworking American taxpayers want to give their president a chance to succeed because if his agenda is enacted, people’s lives will improve.

Fox News Op-Ed: David Bossie: The dirty little secret that is haunting Democrats

The Democratic Party is a mess. It has no effective national leader. It has no serious agenda. And Democrats have no idea how to win back the Rust Belt voters who propelled the ultimate political outsider, Donald J. Trump, to the presidency.

During President Obama’s eight years in office the Democrats became primarily a coastal party that caters to out-of-touch wealthy elitists in liberal enclaves like Manhattan and Hollywood, while ignoring the hardworking Americans who are the backbone of our country.

Democrats lost election after election during the Obama years, as voters strongly rejected the party’s bankrupt policies. In fact, according to a Fox News report, President Obama’s tenure was marked by an embarrassing “net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.”

Forgotten voters in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and North Carolina – whose families had voted for Democrats since President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s time – have finally had enough. They feel like they’ve lost their country and that their leaders in Washington have lost faith in them.

Then Donald Trump came into their communities, talking America First, American jobs, and American exceptionalism. Trump has backed those words up with an optimistic agenda anchored on the central promise to get Americans working again. The Make American Great Again effort is focused on reform: tax reform, trade reform, regulatory reform, domestic energy production reform, and health care reform.

Just a few days ago, nine months since being shell-shocked by the epic Trump victory, the Democrats rolled out a new, weak agenda. Washington Democrats clearly felt pressure to put forth something – anything – new because their allies in the mainstream media told them they needed to put new wrapping paper on their old and failed ideas.

A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that only 37 percent of the American people think that the Democratic Party stands for something. And 52 percent said all that the Democrats do is oppose President Trump. This polling data reflects reality. President Trump has been in office for six months and the Democrats up until now have done nothing more than run a permanent obstruction campaign against the president and his agenda.

The truth is that Americans hailing from states that President Trump carried have well-founded beliefs about what today’s Democrat Party stands for – and it’s not good. These folks think that the Democrats are the party of big government, bureaucratic decision-making, high taxes, open borders, abortion on demand, and weakness around the globe.

I will go a step further and offer what I hear from the liberals in Washington and in the mainstream media about what I would call the real Democrat agenda:

  • On health care, double down on the failing ObamaCare disaster.
  • On federal spending, continue to grow our $20 trillion national debt at an unsustainable rate. “Free” college, anyone?
  • On illegal immigration, protect sanctuary cities.
  • On taxes, keep them high because government bureaucrats know how to spend your hard-earned money better than you do.
  • On the Second Amendment and gun rights, disregard the Constitution and only allow criminals to have guns.
  • On terrorism, refuse to acknowledge the underlying problem: radical Islam.
  • On campaign finance reform, pretend to be against Super PACs, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
This list represents the deep hole that Democrats have dug for themselves outside of their shrinking far-left base.

The idea that ultra-liberals like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York City, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, or Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of the People’s Republic of Vermont have any intention of fixing or even acknowledging the problems facing ordinary Americans is absurd.

This is all an upside for Republicans, for President Trump’s America First agenda and for the president’s promise to prioritize the working men and women in America’s heartland.

Fox News Op-Ed: David Bossie: Trump wants American workers to succeed. Will Democrats join him?

With the U.S. Senate still working on critically important legislation to replace the collapsing ObamaCare law, President Trump is focused on making sure that the American Dream is obtainable now and for future generations. Already, he has proven to be the greatest advocate for America, its proud citizens, and our working men and women since President Reagan.  

One of the reasons Donald Trump ran for president in the first place was that he realized our leaders in Washington had forgotten about American jobs, American workers and American security. Hardworking American taxpayers were fed up with politicians in D.C. focused on seemingly everything but them.

President Trump carried states like Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania because he convinced voters that he would put their interests and our nation’s interests above all else. And that’s exactly what he is doing.

The optimistic message of ushering in a new era of American exceptionalism begins and ends with American job creation.

The Trump administration is working hard to promote American entrepreneurship and American businesses large and small.

Last week, for example, the White House hosted companies from all 50 states that make their products right here in the United States of America, providing good jobs for American workers. This Made in America initiative launched by President Trump should be a priority regardless of who occupies the Oval Office.

Since his first day in office, President Trump has worked to help American job creators, mindful of the wise observation by the late Republican Congressman Jack Kemp of New York that “you can’t have employees without employers.”

By rolling back scores of overly burdensome and unnecessary government regulations enacted by the Obama administration, President Trump is greatly incentivizing hiring.

The president also understands the importance of opening up America’s vast untapped domestic energy resources for exploration and production. This type of comprehensive energy policy will create many thousands of American jobs and reduce our trade deficit with foreign nations. It is decades overdue.

There is widespread agreement that nothing will stimulate job creation more than major tax relief and reform. American businesses must be freed from excessive taxation in order to compete with businesses around the world.

Dramatically reducing the high U.S. tax burden will help to accomplish this. The president’s plan would slash the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent. Job creators yearn for the certainty that taxes are going down and won’t be raised. Individual tax rates must also be lowered and our tax code must be simplified.

True to his promise on the campaign trail, President Trump is calling for consolidating the individual tax brackets from seven to three and setting the new brackets at 35 percent, 25 percent and 10 percent. President Trump will fight for the working men and women of our nation to get this done.

A robust tax reform plan must be taken up as the top priority for this Congress and signed into law by President Trump later this year. Americans heard this campaign promise from Republicans and then elected Republican majorities in the House and Senate to make the promise a reality. Every American will benefit from this enormous pro-growth reform measure.

Fox News: President Trump is a change agent, the Washington establishment hates change - cue sound and fury

By David N. Bossie

President Donald Trump was elected our nation’s 45th president not beholden to Washington or any special interest in its swamp. President Trump is a change agent unlike any President the American people have ever seen. He’s the first non-politician to be elected president since General Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952. President Trump was elected as a successful businessman to break up Washington’s failed status quo. What we are witnessing is the ultimate political outsider enacting real change.

So all the sound and fury emanating from Washington? That’s what it sounds like when an entrenched political class that is radically averse to change is forced to confront it, head-on. And all the noise is obscuring one very important fact, and that is that 161 days into the Trump Presidency – once you cut through the permanent obstruction campaign being waged by the Democrats and all the noise emanating from the liberal media – genuine progress is being made on the Trump agenda.

All the noise emanating from Washington is obscuring one very important fact, and that is that 161 days into the Trump Presidency, genuine progress is being made on the Trump agenda.


This week’s unanimous ruling by the Supreme Court ordering that the President’s executive order on immigration can largely take effect is an enormous victory for the White House and our national security. The Supreme Court put its stamp of approval on the fact that the President of the United States has the power to secure our country and that our immigration vetting system needs major improvement.

Breitbart Exclusive — Dave Bossie: Under President Trump, ‘America’s Best Days Are Ahead of Us Not Behind Us’

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Dave Bossie, the president of Citizens United and former Deputy Campaign Manager for U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s successful presidential campaign last year, told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview here that despite the media narrative,  President Trump’s administration is looking up and moving forward.

“There is absolutely,” Bossie told Breitbart News when asked if there is a renewed sense of optimism in the American economy now that Donald Trump is president rather than Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton. “Your average American once again believes in America’s future. To go back to Reagan, America’s best days are ahead of us not behind us. What the left is trying to do is trying to make our best days be behind us instead of ahead of us.” Bossie’s comments came at the Las Vegas at the Salt Conference, an annual gathering of investors and private equity leaders led by former Trump campaign leading finance committee member Anthony Scaramucci—the founder of SkyBridge Capital. The annual bipartisan gathering brings together capitalists and industry leaders from around the United States who are interesting in furthering the interests of the U.S. economy, and serves as a sort of U.S. and capitalist version of the globalist-driven Davos summit in Switzerland. The difference between the two summits is that while Davos has come to resemble the central gathering of the world elites, this summit is much more entrepreneurial and American free market driven in nature.

Wash Exam: The campaign by the Left to permanently obstruct Trump shows how desperate they're getting

By DAVID BOSSIE • 3/8/17 7:00 PM

The oppose-it-all, oppose-it-now, oppose-it-forever campaign of the Left is getting more and more desperate as reality sets in. This month, the balance of President Trump's Cabinet will be confirmed, Judge Neil Gorsuch will continue on his smooth path to Senate confirmation, and voting on the big ticket items on the White House's conservative reform agenda will commence. This means that we should all expect more hyperventilating from the liberal media about meetings with the Russian ambassador, more anti-free speech outbursts at liberal universities, more juvenile calls for the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and maybe even an appearance by the community organizer-in-chief himself, President Barack Obama.

This destructive strategy of permanent obstruction is all that remains of the shrinking liberal ideology in America.

In the lead-up to Trump's incredibly well-received address to Congress, former Attorney General Eric Holder made news when he said Obama is poised to re-enter the political arena and is "ready to roll." This strategic announcement was meant to let the unhinged resistance know that their savior is ready to fight the Trump agenda.

Then, a few hours later, Trump delivered the best speech of his political career in which he laid out his common-sense agenda, including popular items like tax reform, enforcing immigration laws, and repealing and replacing the disaster that is Obamacare. Upon watching the presidential address, polling found that 57 percent of the American people had a very positive view of the speech, and almost 70 percent said the policies outlined would move the country in the right direction. Commanding numbers such as these are virtually non-existent in the United States today and must be causing panic attacks in liberal enclaves.

The best course of action for Trump going forward is to visit the many states he carried that have Democratic senators up for re-election in 2018 and repeat the speech he made to Congress at each stop. As Trump's optimistic and even-handed message continues to sink in, the chorus from the Left will become loonier. As more voters hear the president's agenda in states such as Missouri, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Ohio, it will pick up more bipartisan support from Democratic senators in these states because their constituents will demand it. The bad news for the Left is that most people want economic growth, better and cheaper healthcare, and sanctuary city reform — and that's exactly what they're going to get over the next couple months, because Trump keeps his promises.

If Obama takes a public leadership role in the failing "resist Trump" effort, he will damage his legacy. Most Americans understandably want their president to succeed. Reasonable people believe that when the president succeeds, Americans will be better off. The mood of the country improves, optimism increases, and the future seems brighter. Obama taking on his successor's agenda in the public arena is not something most Americans will appreciate. President Bill Clinton got out of the way of President George W. Bush. Bush got out of the way of Obama. These men understood that in the U.S. we have elections, elections have consequences, and one of the consequences is the winner gets to set the agenda.

It's not surprising that the Left is having a hard time coming to grips with voters' decision to reject a third Obama term. The people chose a Republican president, a Republican Senate, and a Republican House. By doing so, they chose to have Obamacare replaced with something that works, they chose a conservative as Supreme Court Justice Scalia's successor, and they chose to put "America First." Obama should respect the results of the election and focus instead on improving his golf game.

Trump's greatest strength is his ability to deliver his message of reform directly to the American people, just like I witnessed first-hand during the presidential campaign. If he stays on the principles he laid out before Congress, more of his agenda will be enacted and our country will be a much better place to live.
