Two-Faced Trump Haters

David Grantham, The increasing hysteria around Trump from the absolute resistance crowd brought to mind the former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir and her statement that peace would come when Israel’s enemies “love their children more than they hate us.” An appropriate parallel would be: Americans will not see peace until Trump’s opposition loves this

Four reasons why Betsy DeVos will be a welcome remedy for our nation’s education woes

Trump Will Starve the Leftist Beast

Mytheos Holt, Donald Trump, in his first press conference since being elected president, savaged a number of worthy targets.

Trump: ‘Only a fool’ thinks the Clinton-Lynch meeting wasn’t arranged

Donald Trump declared on Twitter on Sunday that the meeting last week between President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch was clearly arranged beforehand, and called it proof that the fix is in regarding the Justice Department’s investigation into whether Hillary Clinton violated federal law by using a private email server while secretary of

Clinton’s Running Mate Will Reveal a Lot About Her

Steve Chapman, A crucial question about anyone who runs for president is: When the stakes are high, will the interests of the country come first? Or will political considerations dominate? On matters of foreign policy, the Supreme Court or the economy, though, we can only guess and hope. But one major decision can’t wait until
