The One Problem with the Republican Tax Bill

With the Senate’s passage of Republicans’ much publicized tax reform bill, many conservatives are growing optimistic that Americans are on the verge of much needed tax relief. With the House version easily passing through that chamber last month, both sides will now go to conference to reconcile the bills and eventually send a final version to President Trump to be signed into law. While this appears to be a big win for the President and the Republican Party, there is at least one provision which conservatives should not be celebrating. But first, it is important to emphasize that, overall, this

Bill O’Reilly Was Good — But Tucker Carlson Is Far Better

Bill O’Reilly was once the king of cable news. Now he’s out, and his replacement — Tucker Carlson — is better than O’Reilly ever was. I didn’t watch Bill O’Reilly in his heyday in the early-to-mid 2000s. I started watching during the early Obama years but quickly grew tired of the show. It was mostly the same shtick: O’Reilly is standing up for “the folks” and knows what “the folks” want, even if he didn’t really know or care. His interviews with guests generally consisted of a question, followed by a brief answer from the guest, followed by an interruption

Americans Are More Polarized Than Ever — And It’s Destroying the Country

In case you haven’t noticed, the United States is currently weathering one of the most polarized eras of the country’s history. After arguably the most divisive presidential election in modern times, Americans are increasingly entrenching themselves inside their echo-chambered bunkers as social controversies proliferate. Whether it be the NFL National Anthem protests, the Emmy Awards or the latest tragedy in Las Vegas, many Americans have become all too eager to point fingers rather than find common ground; they turn to scapegoating rather than seeking to find solutions. This troubling trajectory is unsustainable and will further decimate the foundations of the

Moore Victory Sends Clear Message to McConnell, GOP Establishment

On Tuesday evening, Roy Moore rattled the Washington establishment as he claimed victory over Luther Strange in the GOP Senate primary in Alabama. Moore finished with 54.6 percent of the vote statewide, while Luther Strange tallied 45.4 percent. The former chief justice of Alabama’s state Supreme Court, Moore has garnered an outpouring of support from Alabamians since he announced his candidacy in April. Moore also won the backing of many prominent conservatives — including Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Steve Bannon, and Laura Ingraham, to name a few — prior to the runoff election. And although President Trump

This Ex-2016 Candidate May Have Saved the Obamacare Repeal — And the GOP

In the aftermath of the GOP’s summer collapse in which it failed to deliver on a seven-year promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, an unlikely but familiar face was working behind the scenes to salvage that promise, the GOP’s dignity, and the American system of governance: Rick Santorum. Santorum is one of the most underappreciated figures in modern conservatism, and perhaps American political history. As a U.S. senator, he pioneered the landmark welfare reform bill that prevented welfare from becoming another permanent unsustainable federal entitlement. He battled on the floor of the Senate like William Wilberforce to pass the Partial Birth Abortion

Republicans Must Fight for President Trump… or Be Defeated

This article was posted originally at The Hill. “Is Trump finished?” one of his savviest conservative supporters asked me recently. In other words, will restless Republicans, unable to achieve any legislative victories, turn on the president of the United States? Abandon hope all ye who succumb to this temptation. Turning on Trump is not the first, difficult step to GOP survival; instead, it would be a death blow to conservative resistance and revival in America. The full shock and awe fury of the Left and its media dogs has been unleashed on Trump for one reason: Trump has uncovered the specific

Tear Them Down? The Conservative Case Against Confederate Monuments

A lot of people I respect greatly are coming to the defense of Confederate war monuments in the wake of the Charlottesville brouhaha. I understand their impulse to resist this latest frenzy of the leftist mobs that are literally tearing down statues and would normally be four-square with them in standing up to political correctness. But I think they’re wrong on this one. Their main argument, like that of President Trump, is the danger of the slippery slope: “Where does it end?” Next it will be George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who owned slaves. Give the Left an inch, and it

How Conservatives Are Fighting Back on College Campuses — And Winning

Dr. Tommy Curry is a professor of philosophy at Texas A&M University. In 2012, he listed out situations where it is acceptable to kill white people, and still pushes such propaganda in his classroom today. Eric Clanton used to be a professor at Diablo Valley College. He was let go when he assaulted pro-Trumpers with a bike lock during a clash between pro-Trump and anti-Trump protesters. Dr. Melina Abdullah is the Chair of Pan-African Studies at California State University-Los Angeles. She called for counter-action against a group of students who hosted conservative speaker Ben Shapiro on campus, and has called
