During his Sunday interview with New York AM 970 radio’s John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable,” economist Larry Kudlow guaranteed President Donald Trump would exempt most United States allies, Europe included, from paying tariffs. “[B]y the end of the week, John, the tariffs [were] basically gone – with the exception of maybe China and a few countries,” Kudlow stated. “Canada is exempt. Mexico is exempt. Australia is exempt. I guarantee you, all of Europe is going to wind up being exempt. And I bet you our allies in Asia will wind up being exempt. China may be the only one.” He added, “We should force tariffs on [China]. The threat of protectionism and the threat of downstream economic losses … has basically gone away. The steel company stocks, which rallied in the beginning, wound up falling the last couple of days as the exclusion argument took place.” Kudlow praised Trump’s way of negotiating, saying he was “really worried” at first. “It’s a Trumpian way of negotiating,” he said. “You knock them in the teeth and get their attention. And then you kind of work out a deal and I think that’s what he’s done. My hats off to him. He
‘The Good Fight’ Features Absurd Fake News Report on Trump, Accuses ‘Reality Star President’ of Nepotism
Sunday on New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” former Clinton administration ambassador to the United Nations and former Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM) praised President Donald Trump for agreeing to meet with North Korea, saying he believes it is a “huge” but good gamble because of the current tension. “I was flabbergasted, I was speechless,” Richardson told host John Catsimatidis. “I think it’s a huge gamble. And you know, John, I have real reservations about the president’s foreign policy. But on this one, I think he’s gambling for the right reason. Things with North Korea couldn’t be worse.” “I’m going to give the president credit for very boldly accepting this invitation. In two months or sooner it’s going to happen. And I think that’s good,” he added. Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has invited President Trump for a meeting, a U.S. official told Fox News Thursday.
FOX News reports:
South Korea is expected to announce Thursday night that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is extending an invitation to meet with President Trump, a senior U.S. official revealed to Fox News.
South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong will also announce an upcoming meeting between South Korean president Moon Jae-in and the North Korean leader, Fox News has learned.
There currently are no plans to change U.S.-South Korea military exercises nor is their a commitment by Kim Jong Un to stop his nuclear testing.

President Trump has agreed to meet with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un by the month of May, says South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yon.
New details have emerged concerning the peace summit between President Trump and Kim.
Business Times reports:
North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un wants to sign a peace treaty and establish diplomatic relations with the US, including allowing an embassy in Pyongyang, according to the Seoul-based Dong-A Ilbo newspaper, which cited an unidentified senior official with South Korea’s presidential office.
Mr Kim is likely to raise the possibility of a peace treaty as well as denuclearizing his country during a meeting with US President Donald Trump, the newspaper said, citing an official in the office of South Korean leader Moon Jae-in. […]
In a separate summit between Mr Kim and Mr Moon scheduled for next month, the North Korean leader is also expected to raise resuming cultural exchanges and reuniting separated families.
On Thursday, China’s foreign minister Wang Yi called on the U.S. and North Korea to hold diplomatic talks as soon as possible.
“History tells us that whenever tensions over the Korean peninsula subside, the situation will be clouded by various interferences,” Wang said in Beijing.
“We have now again come to a crucial moment for testing whether the parties involved are truly sincere in resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.”

Panicky Van Jones Pleads to Oprah for Help With Trump in WH: ‘We Had You, the Obamas’ We Had ‘Hope!’
Tech giants such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are censoring conservatives by using many different methods from shadowbanning to overtly blocking content from users.
One way Twitter censors users is by marking content “sensitive” which blocks people from viewing the tweet. Users on desktops can click “view” in order to see the tweet, however; on iPhone app for Twitter, the content is unable to be viewed.
Twitter is censoring the Drudge Report by marking tweets with a warning that states, “This tweet is not available because it includes potentially sensitive content.”
On Sunday, Chairman Devin Nunes brought attention to the censorship.
Pictured: Matt Drudge
Breitbart’s John Nolte tweeted screenshots of Drudge’s Twitter account showing the blocked tweets and said, “Look at how Twitter censors @DRUDGE. 90% of tweets are blocked.”
— Join the NRA Today!!!! (@NolteNC) March 11, 2018
Chairman Nunes (R-CA) responded to Nolte’s tweet with a warning to Drudge.
Nunes tweeted: “I’ve noticed this also… Seems like @DRUDGE_REPORT @DRUDGE being censored by Twitter. PLEASE RETWEET if you’ve seen this happen in your feed!”

During the 2016 presidential election, the highly influential Drudge Report was one of the main driving forces behind getting Donald Trump into the White House. No wonder why Twitter is censoring the media juggernaut’s account.
The Drudge Report boasts 1.34 million followers on Twitter. Many of the followers can’t even view content because of Twitter’s censorship.
Although Twitter offers users the ability to mark their own tweets “sensitive” in the “settings” section of the site, the social media giant also automatically changes the settings of certain accounts (conservative) so their tweets are marked to sensitive without consent of the user.
This is just another sneaky way Twitter blocks conservative content from being viewed and shared on the platform.

Doing the Work Americans Won’t Do: Illegal Aliens Indicted on Felony Charges After Voting in 2016 Election
Five Lake County, Illinois ‘residents’ have been indicted on felony charges related to the 2016 general election.
Three out of five people indicted are illegal aliens charged with ‘misrepresenting their citizenship’.
How could this be? The Democrats say we don’t need voter ID because voter fraud is just a right-wing conspiracy theory.
Chicago Tribune reported:
The charges against the five local residents began with information uncovered by the Lake County clerk’s office, and then the cases were developed through an investigation by the Lake County state’s attorney’s office.
Assistant State’s Attorney Fred Day said the cases all involve alleged crimes stemming from the Nov. 8, 2016 general election, and the lengthy time frame prior to charges included initial discovery of the alleged crimes by the clerk’s office, followed by the need to interview both witnesses and those eventually charged in the cases as part of the investigation.
According to Day and court records, Marcelo Villaruz, of Beach Park, was charged with perjury for allegedly misrepresenting his citizenship prior to voting. His wife, Gina Villaruz, was indicted on the same charges. Both are scheduled to be arraigned March 21, as are the other three defendants.
Day said that Janet Pokryfke, of Mundelein, was charged with voting more than once, and perjury for allegedly casting both mail-in and walk-in votes in the general election.
Finally, Marvin Hershman, of Riverwoods, was charged with two counts of voting more than once and one count of perjury, according to Day.

These illegals aliens most likely voted because they listened to Barry Obama.
Obama encouraged illegal aliens to vote right before the 2016 presidential election.
Criminal Obama assured illegal aliens that nobody would be able to track them down and there would be no repercussions if they voted in the election so they had nothing to worry about.
Obama also told the illegal aliens, “when you vote, you are a citizen yourself and there is not a situation where somehow the voting rolls are transferred over and people start investigating etcetera.”
BREAKING: 5 arrested for election tampering! None of them were Russians. ALL of them were illegal aliens who voted. ALL voted Democrat.
— Andrew Marcus (@ImAndrewMarcus) March 11, 2018
Certainly this is the tip of the iceberg.
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton had this to say about illegal aliens voting in elections:
“Most tend to vote Democrat. It’s a fact,” he continued. “There’s been a study out of Old Dominion University that shows it is enough of a vote to sway elections, one way or another. It may have resulted in election, specifically, of Al Franken to the United States Senate, and all the bad things politically or public policy-wise that happened as a result, like Obamacare and things like that.”
This is why the Democrats fiercely fight against voter ID laws.
Democrats cannot win elections without voter fraud.
We need voter ID laws in order to save the Republic.
Over the weekend of March 9-11, the activist organization Identity Evropa (IE) held its first national conference with the theme, “Leading our People Forward 2018.” The meeting brought together some 150 members in a beautiful location for what can only be called a resounding success.
IE is a membership-based group with chapters throughout the country. It has gained a high profile through its campaign of postering, primarily on college campuses, and through flash activism events modeled on Generation Identity’s highly successful work in Europe. There have been countless regional and local IE meetings, but this was the first time members gathered from all over the country.
It was my privilege to be asked, along with Sam Dickson, to address the meeting. The sense of excitement and camaraderie was palpable, start to finish. I met activists from Texas, Nevada, Virginia, Tennessee, California, the Dakotas, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, and many other states; only Alaska did not seem to be represented, and there were two comrades from Canada. IE is a selective organization that accepts only those candidates who meet strict criteria, and the result is a group of men and women who are smart, committed, sensible, and impressive in every way.
About half the program consisted of reports by chapter heads and other leaders, who described the communities they are building and the ambitious goals they have set for themselves. The other half was speeches by James Allsup, Sam Dickson, myself, and IE Executive Director Patrick Casey. Every report and talk was met with a standing ovation; the atmosphere was electric with enthusiasm and commitment.
On Sunday afternoon, some 50 members drove to the Parthenon in Centennial Park in Nashville, Tennessee, where they unfurled a 40-foot long banner reading “European Roots/American Greatness.” Members waved American and IE flags while Mr. Casey gave a short, impassioned speech. It was a dramatic and inspiring culmination of a weekend that, I believe, marks a turning point in the development of this very promising organization.
Videos of the talks, and extensive coverage of the banner drop will be available at the IE site very shortly. We look forward to hearing more exciting news from this organization soon.
Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren went on FOX News Sunday today and was grilled on her phony Indian heritage.
Elizabeth Warren lied about her heritage to jump over qualified minority candidates and land a position at Harvard University.
Elizabeth Warren was listed as Harvard Law’s “first woman of color” in 1997 law review piece on diversity and affirmative action!
Elizabeth Warren pushed back hard on questions about a Harvard Crimson piece in 1996 that described her as Native American, saying she had no idea the school where she taught law was billing her that way and saying it never came up during her hiring a year earlier, which others have backed up.
But a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described her as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color,” based, according to the notes at the bottom of the story, on a “telephone interview with Michael Chmura, News Director, Harvard Law (Aug. 6, 1996).”
Warren was listed as a “woman of color” in the 1993 Harvard student journal.
And in 2012 Elizabeth Warren admitted she told Harvard Law she was Native American.
President Trump regularly hits the fraud on her phony ancestry.
Guest host John Roberts asked Warren if she’ll take a spit test.
Warren dodged the question with a sappy answer.
Warren lied to get her job at Harvard.
Everyone knows it.
Donald Trump Jr. trolled Elizabeth Warren by telling Pocahontas to just “identify” as Native American since she won’t take a DNA test.
Don Jr. tweeted: Why not simply “identify” as Native American. Problem solved. #yourewelcome

Prominent Black Lives Matter and anti-Trump activist Micah Rhodes has been found guilty of 2nd Degree Sex Abuse in a case involving an underage girl. The verdict came down this past Friday in Washington County, Oregon, just outside of Portland. Rhodes could face up to 5 years in prison, prosecutors are going for a 2-2 1/2 year sentence, and the judge could opt for as little as probation.
Rhodes has previously been convicted of sex abuse when he was a minor, and was on probation for such at the time of this second incident. Additionally, he was a registered sex offender. Strangely enough, however, he is not listed on the official sex offender registry.
Furthermore, Rhodes also faces another set of sex abuse charges in Multnomah County, this time involving an underage boy whom he met via Grindr.
Rhodes was instrumental in the planning of the election week protests and riots in Portland in the aftermath of Trump’s Presidential victory.
He is very likely back out on the streets.
Rhodes, alongside another prolific activist, Greg McKelvey, in court regarding still a separate matter, when they were arrested during a string protests in November, 2016.
Here’s a video from November 2016, when Rhodes was being haled as a brave hero for leading the anti-Trump protests.

WaPo’s Michael Gerson: Evangelicals Who Support Trump Are ‘Slimy Political Operatives, Not Moral Leaders’
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson said evangelicals who supported President Donald Trump were “slimy political operatives, not moral leaders.” Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: Michael, I want to ask you. You just wrote an in-depth piece about sort of the struggle within — as you see it, the search for the soul of the evangelical movement in many ways. You say they have lost their interest in decency. What do you think the evangelicals who support President Trump make of the Stormy Daniels scandal? GERSON: Well, I think that it is the height of hypocrisy. And we saw it with Roy Moore as well. If any other Democratic president had been guilty of what is alleged in these cases, evangelicals would be, you know, off the reservation. This is a case where their morality seems to be determined by their politics. And they have ceased to be moral leaders in that sense. It’s — it was a tough choice for many evangelicals between Hillary Clinton and the president. And I understand that. But they have been the most sycophantic element of the Republican coalition, which was — is unnecessary. They have not provided that moral
Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan said she did not call President Donald Trump a “Neanderthal” as he claimed at a rally on Saturday because “that would not be fair” to Neanderthals who had a “certain artistic complexity.” Partial transcript as follows: CHUCK TODD: I’ve got to bring up last night’s rally a little bit.

Michael Pillsbury: Tariffs Are ‘Just a Pin Prick’ Compared to What’s Needed to Halt China’s ‘Predatory Policies’
Michael Pillsbury, Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and author of The Hundred-Year Marathon: China's Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower, described the Trump Administration's implementation of tariffs on aluminum and steel imports as insufficient measures towards curbing China's goal of displacing U.S. geopolitical global dominance.

Jake Bain, the openly gay football star headed to Indiana State next fall, will be the center of love and joy on Monday as the community rallies around its hero.

A bunch of people are expected to rally around Bain on Monday, who seems to be a superstar in more ways than one.
