[Due to an unforeseen and extended power outage, we were unable to post yesterday's "End of Day" report. Below is Wednesday's report.]
As we edge closer to Inauguration Day, there has been yet another vicious attempt by leftists in the government and the media to delegitimize and destroy the Trump presidency before he takes office. The headlines today are beyond bizarre.
I won't repeat the scurrilous smears being made. But I do want to comment about the briefing President-elect Trump received from intelligence officials.

The Hearings Begin
Confirmation hearings for key members of President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet got underway today in the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is vowing to get Trump's national security team confirmed as quickly as possible and in place by Inauguration Day. As we noted recently, as many as seven Obama appointees were confirmed by Inauguration Day in 2009.
|Jerusalem Terror, Iran On The March, Hollywood Hypocrisy||
Just over two weeks ago, President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry conspired at the United Nations to declare that it is illegitimate for Jews to live in the "occupied territory" of East Jerusalem.

Can you imagine how you would feel if you saw Islamic extremists dancing in the streets of half of Jerusalem? What about watching scenes of Jewish refugees fleeing for their lives from Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria?
During World War II, millions of Jews were hunted down and murdered. If they were "lucky," they became refugees without a home. In the aftermath of the horror, the world declared, "Never Again."

Trump Wins Again
Ford announced today that it was cancelling a planned $1.6 billion investment in Mexico. Instead the automaker is now planning to invest $700 million in a plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, which is expected to create 700 new jobs at the plant.
Ford CEO Mark Fields said the change of plans amounts to a "vote of confidence" in the pro-business policies being advocated by the Trump/Pence team. Trump is also calling on General Motors to follow Ford's example.

The Year Ahead
Many people like to turn a new page at the beginning of a new year. We all like to forget about unfortunate events in the past. We want to jettison our problems and focus on becoming better people. New Year's resolutions are always positive, right?
