According to a new Gallup poll, Hillary Clinton is still incredibly unpopular. Via Fox News: It’s been more than seven months since Election Day, but Americans’ opinions of Hillary Clinton remain the same. A new Gallup poll finds just 41 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the former presidential candidate, with 57 percent expressing an unfavorable view. […]


There has been a great deal of news coverage recently discussing the relationship between Great Britain and the United States. Indeed, we regard our alliance as one of the most important and powerful alliances in the history of the world. Of course, it wasn’t always this way. Remember when the Redcoats burned down the White […]


This morning, an anti-Trump gunman from Illinois opened fire on several GOP congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. The players were preparing for tomorrow’s annual Congressional Baseball Game, a long-running bipartisan tradition to raise money for charity. While the gunman managed to injure several, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, it […]


There are two big takeaways from former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony today before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence: 1.) President Trump is not under investigation by the FBI. Not about Russia. Not about covfefe. Not about anything. 2.) President Trump may have mishandled his communications with James Comey, but he did nothing illegal. As […]


Conservatives should take the same approach to the politics of the Paris Accord that Liberals always take to reforming Social Security/Medicare. Ask them: Why do you hate poor people? Do you really want to make a single mother working two jobs pay double or triple for her energy bills when she can’t even afford to […]


The Democrats think they are ready for 2020. They say they are new (!), improved (!), and ready to rumble! And their new, fresh candidate is… Joe Biden? From The New York Times: Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is planning to create a political action committee, the most concrete sign yet that he intends […]


Terry, it looks like you’ve been vindicated! President Trump agrees with your proposal to scrap the Senate’s legislative filibuster and employ the legislative nuclear option: The U.S. Senate should switch to 51 votes, immediately, and get Healthcare and TAX CUTS approved, fast and easy. Dems would do it, no doubt! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May […]


David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, released another damning video yesterday — which The National Pulse covered here — showing Planned Parenthood employees joking around about baby body parts and describing late-term abortions in horrifying detail. YouTube has now removed the video without giving an explanation for doing so. Let’s set aside the fact […]


File this under this week’s sign of the apocalypse: Mother’s Day should be about abortion. In an op-ed written for Time, Planned Parenthood CEO and abortion shouter-in-chief Cecile Richards hijacked Mother’s Day and ran it into the proverbial ground. Attacking the Republicans’ Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, which redirects taxpayer funds away from […]


It’s open war between Donald Trump and the liberal media, and the President isn’t holding back. In a recent interview with TIME, Trump unloaded on some of his fiercest critics: Joe Scarborough (MSNBC): I don’t watch MSNBC. Scarborough used to treat me great. But because I don’t do interviews and stuff and want to … […]


Since the night he shocked the world by defeating Hillary Clinton, left-wing activists have fantasized about impeaching Donald Trump. This obsession has driven many of these otherwise lucid individuals to lunacy as they desperately peddle baseless conspiracy theories about Russia hacking the election in order to justify their fervent partisan desire to destroy Trump. Looking […]


This is Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). According to Axios, the pro-Planned Parenthood picture on the right was taken less than a month ago. The anti-Planned Parenthood picture on the left? That was taken last week. Manchin is a Democratic politician in a deep red state trying to, as Axios delicately puts it, “walk a tightrope” on abortion […]


Last week President Trump’s nominee for Army Secretary, Mark Green, withdrew his name from consideration after several weeks of protest from radical LGBT and left-leaning groups. According to The Washington Post, Green, a professed Christian, was under siege for previous comments where he appeared to question the Left’s radical gender ideology: Among the comments that […]


President Trump’s executive order on religious liberty was an important first step. It was impressive to see the President today voice support for religious freedom and hugging the Little Sisters of the Poor in the Rose Garden. There is still much to be done on this issue, however. Our fight isn’t over. The executive order […]


Many conservatives who may have been unsure about Donald Trump during the campaign ultimately voted for him because of his promise to nominate a strong pro-life Supreme Court justice to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The data bear this out: 21 percent of voters said that Supreme Court picks were “the most important factor” […]


We all just saved thousands of dollars on our income taxes by switching to the GOP! (Well, maybe…) The Trump Administration unveiled the basic outline for the Trump tax plan yesterday, which they referred to as “the biggest individual and business tax cut in American history.” You can read their one pager here. The plan […]


When he was a presidential candidate, Donald Trump promised to protect the First Amendment and end the Obama Administration’s war against religious liberty. He specifically assured Catholics in a letter in October of last year that he would stop the federal government from suing the Little Sisters of the Poor over the Obamacare HHS mandate, […]


Morning Consult is out with a fresh batch of approval ratings for all 100 U.S. Senators. Check out the top three most popular senators, as rated by their constituents: 1.) Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) 75 percent approve 21 percent disapprove 2.) Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) 70 percent approve 22 percent disapprove 3.) Senator John Barrasso […]


Like many of our readers at The National Pulse, I have been following the United Airlines story obsessively. If you are somehow living under a rock and don’t know the details, here are the cliffnotes: United inadvertently overbooked a flight from Chicago to Louisville and, after boarding everyone, asked for four volunteers to leave the […]


Country music legend Charlie Daniels isn’t exactly afraid of weighing in on politics. In a relatively unnoticed tweet — Breitbart News first covered it — Daniels argued that, if the Left thinks “sanctuary cities” should be able to defy federal law on immigration, the Right should do the same thing and create pro-life sanctuary cities. How […]
