New David Bossie op-ed: "Why Mulvaney matters as chief of staff: He's in Trump's corner"

We've often said President Donald Trump is one of the most instinctually gifted political minds ever to sit behind the Resolute Desk. He bulldozed his way into Washington as the ultimate outsider but, somehow, walked off the inaugural dais in 2017 with a level of insight that usually is reserved for seasoned political hands.

While the election of President Trump has been unquestionably great for our country, it ups the stakes for those who wish to serve as effective aides for a president who won his first political race entirely on his own ideas, guts and hard work. Presidential advisers come and go, as in any administration, and while this president listens to advice as successful leaders do, few aides "serving at the pleasure of the president" have made an impact that provides President Trump with a skillset that he does not already possess. Suffice to say, the bar for being an effective aide to a president of such natural political instinct is a tough one to reach.

Our friend Mick Mulvaney, however, has risen to the challenge to become one of the unsung heroes of the Trump administration. President Trump has a long-term strategic vision for the country not seen in decades, and in Mulvaney he's found an aide whose advice is worth listening to and who he can trust to execute his decisions. Mulvaney isn't a glorified body man who simply wants to orbit the president, nor does he think his job is to act as a "check" because of a grossly mistaken belief that a modern chief of staff drives the agenda. Mulvaney knows that he is the "chief of staff" but that the two words "of staff" are the bolded text — and he knows the importance of letting Trump be Trump.

Fox News: David Bossie: Biden must answer for the lies sold to the American people by Team Obama

“Sleepy” Joe Biden is counting on his eight years as President Obama’s vice president to provide some sort of nostalgic boost for his third run for the White House in the past 32 years.

But “the problem with nostalgia” – to quote former Sen. John Edwards as he described the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton in 2007 – “is what we tend to do is only remember what you like and you forget the parts you didn’t like.”

The disgraced former Democratic senator from North Carolina was, of course, referring to the scandal-plagued administration of President Bill Clinton, which paved the way for the launch of seven independent counsel investigations by then-Attorney General Janet Reno.

Fox News: David Bossie: Pelosi and House Dems are abusing power in a desperate effort to impeach Trump

It’s obvious that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has every intention of impeaching President Trump, despite her denials. The California Democrat and resistance leader is currently running a taxpayer-funded political campaign against our duly elected president.

Pelosi is doing permanent damage to the legislative branch by directing all of her committee chairs to engage in what amounts to opposition research on a political opponent, as opposed to legitimate congressional oversight. There’s a big difference.

The House should not be an arm of the Democratic National Committee, but that’s what it has become. Instead of focusing on legislating to benefit the American people, House Democrats are desperately focused solely on investigating the president endlessly, putting partisanship over patriotism.

Fox News: David Bossie: Mueller probe was a waste of time and money – No collusion, no obstruction

As partisan Democrats and the liberal media hyperventilate over Attorney General William Barr’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report Thursday, they’re willfully ignoring the fact that they already know what the report concludes: Two years and $35 million was spent investigating a lie.

Barr has already informed us that the report states categorically that there was no collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and the government of Russia to elect Donald Trump president.

The report finally puts to bed the main allegation that the left has been consumed with for nearly three years. Much to their chagrin, the lie that they pushed for the entire Trump presidency has been completely dismissed by Mueller. Barr told us that last month.

On the issue of obstruction of justice, we know the report says Mueller left the decision on possible obstruction by Trump up to Barr. But by not filing obstruction charges, Mueller did decide that there was no obstruction of justice.

Fox News: David Bossie: The media need to investigate Joe Biden and his Ukraine dealings

For the past 12 days, the political media has been focused on “handsy” and “creepy” former Vice President Joe Biden and his penchant for making unwanted contact with women seemingly wherever he is. While these allegations deserve their fair share of attention, the mainstream media may be missing -- or more likely ignoring -- the real Biden story that’s staring them in the face.

When I served as the chief investigator for the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight during the Clinton Administration, I regularly worked with journalists on investigations they were covering for weeks and even months. But 20 years later, those types of stories are few and far between.

That being said, the media must do a deep-dive into Joe Biden and his family’s relationship with Ukraine, like the recent reports by award-winning journalist John Solomon in his column at The Hill.

Fox News: David Bossie: Democrats hate Trump more than they want to keep our country safe and secure

For decades, presidents along with scores of Members of Congress from both political parties have been in agreement that our nation’s immigration system is broken and that a crisis is brewing at our southern border. During his historic 2016 campaign for the presidency, Donald J. Trump, the ultimate political outsider, made border security and building a beautiful border wall the signature issue of his candidacy.

President Trump appealed to hardworking American citizen-taxpayers from coast to coast who were elated that there was finally a candidate with the courage to confront the failed status quo by stopping illegal immigration and reforming the ridiculous chain migration and visa lottery systems.

During the first two years of his presidency, President Trump has never wavered on his commitment to secure our porous southern border. Much to the dismay of the D.C. swamp creatures, he’s determined to make good on his promise to solve the existential threat at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Ever since President Trump was inaugurated, the Democrats' position on illegal immigration has moved further and further to the left and is now completely out of touch with the average American. Trump Derangement Syndrome has caused radical Democratic presidential candidates to embrace abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), tearing down existing border walls, and decriminalizing illegal border crossings.

Fox News: David Bossie: The political weaponization of our justice system and intelligence community can’t be ignored

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is over and his findings conclude that the Trump campaign and Russia did not coordinate, conspire, or collude to help President Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.  Furthermore, Special Counsel Mueller also declined to pursue obstruction of justice charges because the president was not involved in any underlying crime.  In his letter to Congress, Attorney General William Barr stated that the Mueller report found no evidence that constituted “obstructive conduct.”

In short, after 22 months, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and 500 witness interviews, the special counsel came up with absolutely nothing. This investigation - which wasted tens of millions in taxpayer dollars - will be remembered for producing the biggest goose egg in American history. The President of the United States has been completely vindicated.

Not only did Attorney General Barr’s letter to Congress tell us what the Mueller team investigated, but by omission it also gave us clues as to what wasn’t investigated. At this moment, it appears that Special Counsel Mueller did not consider the illegal activities and dirty politics that paved the way to his appointment in the first place.

The political weaponization of our justice system and intelligence community that occurred in 2016 and 2017 must not be swept under the rug. The American people deserve an honest and complete investigation - not for political payback as the liberal media is trying to frame it - but because the allegations are too serious to ignore. Tens of millions of Americans are expecting answers about the failed soft coup attempt against our duly elected president that just played out before our very eyes. It’s a good sign that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is planning to do a thorough review of it all on Capitol Hill.

Fox News: David Bossie: Trump vs. 2020 Democrats – Contrast between capitalist strength, miserable socialism is YUGE

In 1964, 16 years before he was elected president, Ronald Reagan delivered a historic speech called “A Time for Choosing.”

In the speech, Reagan laid out the stark contrast between big government and individual liberty, and between capitalism and socialism. He chided Democrats for claiming “they’re going to solve all the problems of human misery through government and government planning.”

It seems that almost 55 years later, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The election of 2020 will be, once again, a time for choosing.

As campaigning for next year’s Democratic presidential primaries gets underway, it is simply jaw-dropping to contrast the no-nonsense style of President Trump and his hugely successful pro-growth capitalist agenda with the miserably weak field of socialist Democrat White House wannabees.

What a pitiful sight to see a party so mired in political correctness that candidates for the presidential nomination can’t say what they really think because they may offend the aristocracy of coastal elites calling the shots.

Fox News: David Bossie: Pelosi will lead Trump impeachment fight – Don’t believe her denials

Call me a skeptic, but I'm quite certain that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent claim to The Washington Post that "I'm not for impeachment" of President Trump doesn't match her actual position on the issue.

The California congresswoman is a crafty career politician who specializes in telling the American people one thing and doing the exact opposite. In fact, she's risen to the top of the liberal pyramid because she is an extremely gifted manipulator.

In January, Pelosi's own daughter Alexandra described her mother as a political leader who could "cut your head off and you won't even know you're bleeding."

In the case of the Trump impeachment question, Pelosi has it all gamed out in advance and this most recent misleading statement is just Part One.

Take a look at the manner in which Pelosi disclosed her phony "not for impeachment" stance to her political allies at the Post: "I'm not for impeachment. This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to any press person before."

Fox News: David Bossie: Anti-Trump Democrats practice politics of personal destruction against president

Democrats in the U.S. House aren’t going to let the facts get in the way of their impeachment witch hunt against President Trump.

It’s clear that Democratic leaders have been misleading the American people for months by assuring them that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report will be the determining factor as they consider any impeachment inquiry.

Now – with the Russia collusion narrative thoroughly debunked – the Democrats are in full panic mode and making desperate mistakes on the investigative front.

Since November 2016, the left has spun the lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to win the election and that as a result President Trump is an illegitimate president. Democrats pushed this political opposition research pipe dream so hard that they turned their liberal base into an unhinged mob of Trump-hating lunatics.
