CONSERVATIVE QUOTE: "President Donald Trump's biggest achievement in his first 100 days? Easy. He stopped the left. Measure Trump's first 100 days not just by looking at what he has or has not accomplished. Look at what America would have experienced under the alternative: Hillary Clinton." - Larry Elder
TRUMPISM "[D]efined as secure borders, economic nationalism, interests-based foreign policy, and above all judging every government action through a single lens: does this help or harm Americans." - Journal of American Greatness
THIS DAY IN HISTORY
1803 - The Louisiana Purchase: The United States more than doubled its land area after obtaining all French territory west of the Mississippi River for $15 Million.
1. Talk about a steal. This $15 million has multiplied in worth many times over...In many more ways than just economically.
2. Napoleon accepted he couldn’t invade the U.S., and would likely not be able to hold his American lands for much longer anyway.
3. The Brits were pissed at what looked like an American alliance with the French. And during America's first century the French were much more trustworthy than the Brits when it came to American sovereignty...Even if it mostly was because the French couldn't get here with much of a force.
