The Los Angeles Times editorial board offered some friendly political advice to Paul Ryan: “Drop the crusade against Planned Parenthood.” Anytime establishment liberals offer political advice to conservatives, a good general rule is: do the opposite. I have some better advice: Defund Planned Parenthood now. Today would be nice, in honor of David Daleiden’s heroism and as […]


After last Friday’s demise of the Republican-drafted American Health Care Act, which would have, if passed, defunded Planned Parenthood, pro-life groups have called on Congress to prioritize cutting all federal funds to the abortion giant. In response, Planned Parenthood has declared today “Pink Out Day” in an attempt to show Congress how many women support […]


David Daleiden, the project lead of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the organization that filmed the Planned Parenthood videos and exposed the abortion behemoth’s inhumane business practice of harvesting baby body parts for profit, has been charged by a California prosecutor with 15 felony counts for his historic feat of citizen journalism. He faces […]


The Democratic Party took a beating in 2016. After losing the White House to Donald Trump as well as numerous Congressional and state-level races, Democrats have been forced back to the drawing board to determine what changes might be necessary to prevent further losses. Some of that soul-searching was on display this week, as similar […]


Yesterday, liberals on Twitter — and dozens of journalists — rushed to retweet a story from the Associated Press claiming that the North Carolina so-called “bathroom bill” law, HB2, cost the Tarheel State an estimated $3.76 billion in economic impact over 12 years: Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled […]


In a recent New York Times interview, Donald Trump was pressed on whether he was a fan of the House GOP’s proposed border-adjustment tax; the President responded, “I am. I’m the king of that.” If President Trump has in fact changed his position on the border adjustment tax, we had better hope his tax plan […]


The GOP health care bill, which would have repealed Obamacare and replaced it with the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was withdrawn from the House floor without a vote last Friday after Speaker Paul Ryan failed to achieve a consensus. As The New York Times reported prior to the bill being pulled, President Trump had hoped […]


Paul Ryan has admitted he and the House Republicans failed bigly. He lacks the votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, so House Republicans and President Trump have decided to move on to other parts of Trump’s agenda that might prove more popular. Ezra Klein is a liberal, but he hit the nail on the head about Paul Ryan […]


It seems that all of the grassroots efforts to reach the Trump administration with Common Core-related concerns are finally starting to bear fruit. These concerns include Betsy DeVos’ pro-Common Core record, the disturbingly large number of Jeb Bush foundation employees and alumni staffing the U.S. Department of Education (USED), and the prominent decrease in the […]


“President Trump’s approval rating hits a new low.” Thus proclaimed USA Today earlier this week, furthering the narrative popular in the mainstream media that Donald Trump’s presidency is off to a rocky start. It’s no secret that ever since Trump announced his candidacy for president in June 2015, his favorability ratings have been unusually bad — […]


While President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, has managed to hit a grand-slam so far at this week’s confirmation hearings, this hasn’t stopped well-meaning “Never-Trumpers” and principled conservative pundits from picking apart his comments. The double-edged social media platform known as Twitter is great. It has empowered everyday people to have a voice when it […]


Faced with an eminently qualified, reasonable, fair, and brilliant judge, Democrats are flailing — and failing — in their desperate attempt to “bork” Judge Neil Gorsuch. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) hit new lows when she attempted to savage Neil Gorsuch for saying he believes “the intentional taking of a human life by private persons is always […]


Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey testified to Congress that the FBI had launched an investigation into President Donald Trump and his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. Democrats and political journalists are in an absolute Russia frenzy right now, believing that this announcement — that there’s an investigation after months of hysterical partisan shrieking — is […]


Last week, The Huffington Post noted that, absent a strong intervention by President Donald Trump himself, his team is taking a pretty lackadaisical attitude to Common Core so far: During the campaign and in the weeks following his election, Trump’s pledge to end the Common Core, a set of education goals that has stirred controversy on […]


The release of President Donald Trump’s budget last week set off a bipartisan outrage that gave new meaning to the phrase “March Madness.” As beltway bureaucrats come to terms with the fact that President Trump is actually determined to shrink the size of government, the rest of America is celebrating a budget that would lead […]


It’s time for my “Final Thoughts” on Tomi Lahren, written, unfortunately, in the inimitable style of Tomi Lahren. Last week, 24-year-old know-it-all firebrand Tomi Lahren, a supposedly “conservative” media superstar known mostly for her viral rants against black people, melted like the ideologically vapid snowflake she is on The View when asked about abortion. Check […]


Former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan praises the gold standard in the February 2017 issue of The World Gold Council’s Gold Investor. Therein he makes what may be his strongest statements to date in praise of the gold standard. Here are some of the highlights. Toward the end of this interview he offers a Big Reveal: […]


In last week’s column, I mentioned four things that President Donald Trump could do to keep his education promises. One had to do with the budget: 3.) Cut the Federal Education Budget Considering that there are so many invasive, ineffective, expensive, over-reaching, privacy-robbing federal education programs that include related social emotional standards tied to Common Core, President Trump […]


“There is some criticism of me for being alarmist,” author Rod Dreher noted last night at the Union League Club in New York, where hundreds gathered for the launch of his new book, The Benedict Option, but he wasn’t backing down an inch. “I am alarmist about the state of our culture and our civilization […]


Prof. Gerry Bradley of Notre Dame Law School has a column today at National Review repudiating recent arguments that Neil Gorsuch should answer boldly on overturning Roe v. Wade during his Senate confirmation hearings. Prof. Bradley argues: For him to become the first nominee in living memory to reveal his mind about Roe would mark him — […]
