Ben Shapiro, There is a widespread perception among those on the right that President Trump’s myriad foibles, vagaries and outright prevarications are somehow justifiable because he is The Great Destroyer of the mainstream media. His fans say he is running the media around in circles — and that is its own reward. Are you still
Charlie Spiering, Democrats predictably raised the alarm after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, accusing the president of trying to cover up the investigation into Russia’s interference into the 2016 presidential election. Despite blaming Comey for Hillary Clinton’s loss, former campaign aides defended him. “Twilight zone. I was as disappointed and frustrated as
JudicialWatch.org, “Does President Trump know his State and Justice Departments are still trying to provide cover for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama?” Judicial Watch today announced that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson has ordered the U.S. Department of State to turn over to Judicial Watch “eight identical paragraphs” of previously redact material in two
Cal Thomas, President Trump and I have something in common. We were both invited to last Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner and we declined. The president wasn’t interested in hearing himself mocked by an industry that holds him to a different standard than his predecessor and I wasn’t interested in hearing the predictable jokes denigrating
House Republicans plan to vote Thursday on the latest version of the American Health Care Act – their answer to ObamaCare. The bill has gone through some changes since an earlier version was pulled from the floor in March in the face of flagging support. Here’s what’s the bill does: -Ends tax penalties, under the
Robert Knight, It’s been a long while since I perused TIME, either online or in print. Years ago, the weekly ceased being an interesting news magazine and evolved into a caricature of fashionable left-wing thought. It is no longer required reading. However, TIME managed to work its way back into national consciousness this week with
Daniel Greenfield, Troubling, but not surprising. The National Council of Jewish Women is one of those organizations whose letterhead keeps showing up on left-wing causes having nothing to do with Jewish issues. Lately it claimed to be concerned about anti-Semitism. Just not the extent of breaking ranks with anti-Semites and refusing to participate in anti-Israel
Kurt Schlichter, History will record that once upon a time there was something that called itself #TheResistance, and it was President Trump’s bestest buddy because it provided him the cover to ruthlessly dismantle everything Barack Obama and Team Libfascist tried to build. Whining, virtue signaling, and figuratively choosing to die on strategically insignificant hills while
Bill Murchison, Uh, just a minute: How did we get to this point, poised to disassemble and haul away Obamacare and/or spend the next two years in recriminations having to do with how the job was done (or not done)? Could these prospects have faced us under Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Polk, Lincoln, Cleveland or McKinley?
Ben Shapiro, In 2010, angry Americans elected Republicans to the House of Representatives in the belief that Republicans would fight tooth and nail to repeal Obamacare. In 2014, Republicans took the Senate by making the same promise. In 2016, President Trump won election on the basis of repealing the “disaster” of Obamacare. Now it’s 2017.
Liz Crokin, The shadow government led by former President Barack Obama is working overtime to delegitimize President Donald Trump and his administration. They’ve accused and even set up Trump’s people to tie his administration to “evil” Russia and now Trump’s alleging that Obama tapped his phones. There’s never been such a concerted effort in modern
Cortney O’Brien, The annual White House Correspondents Dinner is an evening for journalists to eat and enjoy one another’s company while being the butt of some lighthearted jokes. Presidents have taken the opportunity in years past to poke some fun at the media who cover the administration. With Donald Trump in the White House this year,
