I first met the late Ambassador Faith Whittlesey in Fall 2016, and we quickly got into an argument.
She passed away last month, at the age of 79. Our argument, between two staunch Trump supporters, was about foreign policy.
Numerous obituaries and tributes have been written about Whittlesey and her extraordinary career. She was twice President Reagan’s ambassador to Switzerland, the director of Reagan’s Office of Public Liaison and the most senior woman on Reagan’s White House staff, a Pennsylvania state legislator who helped deliver the state to Reagan in 1980, an ardent pro-lifer and supporter of the Second Amendment, chairman and president of the American Swiss Foundation, and an early and staunch supporter of President Trump.
I got to know her best as a fellow Trump loyalist.

Comedian Michelle Wolf has been widely condemned for attacking White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’s appearance and job performance at the White House Correspondents’ dinner over the weekend.
Her monologue, which also derided President Trump and other members of his administration, has been characterized as vulgar, ugly, and not funny.
Amid Wolf’s failed attempts at humor and the ensuing blowback, a disturbing but commonplace phenomenon has received much less attention: Women on the Left, like Wolf, seem to equate vulgarity with female empowerment. As such, they often make crude references to sex and sexual organs in public and celebrate the comments as a sign of liberation.

Ying Ma spoke to students at the University of California at Berkeley about immigration policy on April 11, 2018. The topics covered include chain migration, amnesty, President Donald Trump’s immigration reform proposals, building a wall on the U.S. southern border, and Ying’s personal immigration experience.
The speech was sponsored by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, a national organization that prepares young women for effective leadership and promotes leading conservative women.
A lively Q&A session followed the speech. It can be viewed here.
When Trump got on the stage at CPAC, he talked about a wide range of issues, including his hair, CPAC’s perception of him as insufficiently conservative during the presidential election of 2016, his administration’s accomplishments (regulatory reform, tax cuts, and confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court), the recent massacre in Parkland, Fla., and the need to defend Americans from violent criminals and reform the immigration system.
But about an hour into the president’s speech, he still had not said anything about the sanctions on North Korea.
Then President Trump did “The Snake.”
Just like at a concert, the rock star was doing this by request. As the president recounted, “When I walked in today….I had five people outside say, ‘Could you do “The Snake”?'”
Ying Ma appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss China’s long-term strategic challenge to the United States, and how America has taken its eyes off weighty issues like China while being distracted by the Russia investigation into President Donald Trump.
Right before the New Year, the New York Times breathlessly reported that the drunken revelations of a former Trump campaign foreign policy aide to an Australian diplomat in May 2016 prompted the FBI to open an investigation into the campaign’s Russia ties.
The Times story has already been exposed as full of holes and contradictions. It is the latest indication that the mainstream media routinely hypes any bad news, real or imagined, for President Trump in the Russia probe.
Just as disturbing, those who disseminate and explain the news continue to lack a basic understanding of the context and nature of Trump’s unconventional political campaign and often assume that the chaos, lack of organization, and opportunism that existed is synonymous with nefariousness, conspiracy, or broader illegality.
As the country awaits the final verdict of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, other common misperceptions deserve closer examination.
