The Countdown Begins
 
The one-fourth of the federal government that was closed is officially open today.  But there is no sign of compromise coming from the left when it comes to the construction of new barriers at the southern border.  And so the countdown to the February 15th deadline for congressional negotiators to reach a deal on a homeland security package begins.

Address Delayed
 
Late last night, President Trump decided to respect the prerogatives of the Speaker of the House.  He announced that he would delay the State of the Union address until the partial government shutdown ends.  Trump explained his decision this way:

March For Life, Nancy Got Grounded, Omar vs. Israel

March For Life
 
I love this day!  Every year hundreds of thousands of people come to Washington, D.C. -- in January! -- to march for the sanctity of life.  This is the 46th annual March for Life, and that tells you something about the dedication of the pro-life movement.

Second Lady Under Siege
 
The radical left is attacking Second Lady Karen Pence.  She is returning to the classroom to teach art appreciation at the same northern Virginia school where she taught for 12 years when then-Congressman Mike Pence served in the House of Representatives.
