What they really want is the continuation of Obama’s Christian refugee ban

Daniel Greenfield, “Kill Christians”: The Real Refugee Protest Agenda. The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here. They would be sent back. No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals.

Pat Buchanan: Trump, America for the Americans!

As the patriotic pageantry of Inauguration Day gave way to the demonstrations of defiance Saturday, our new America came into view. We are two nations now, two peoples.        Though bracing, President Trump’s inaugural address was rooted in cold truths, as he dispensed with the customary idealism of inaugurals that are forgotten within a

The Democrats’ Big Sin

John P. Warren, Not that sin has much value in progressive-speak these days, but it’ll take more than three Hail Mary’s to save their party in the near term. At this national moment, Democrats and their noisemakers are attempting to mesmerize us with tales about the Russians’ lame attempt at presidential electioneering. What they should

The press says Trump is riling Up the corporate world

I’m starting to see a pattern here. Donald Trump makes an aggressive move, breaking with the usual practice or protocol, and the media do their rain dance: Why, this is deeply troubling! Things simply aren’t done this way. People are getting nervous. How can you run a government like this? Then they round up people

Dear liberals, start practicing the empathy you preach

Michael Goodwin,  Elections have consequences and an obvious one now is your distress. Your grief over Hillary Clinton’s defeat is understandable, but your rage over Donald Trump’s victory is not.

Pat Buchanan: A Besieged Trump Presidency Ahead

Pat Buchanan, After a week managing the transition, vice president-elect Mike Pence took his family out to the Broadway musical “Hamilton.” As Pence entered the theater, a wave of boos swept over the audience. And at the play’s end, the Aaron Burr character, speaking for the cast and the producers, read a statement directed at

It’s on! The Battle for Blue Collar America: Remembering the Forgotten Man

Virgil, In the last installment, we examined some positive historical precedents for a new president’s foreign policy.  In this installment, we will consider positive precedents for a new president’s domestic policy.  For the Forgotten Man, and the Forgotten Woman, it’s nice to be remembered.  During the campaign, Donald Trump revived the phrase, “Forgotten Man,” which

The American people need to end 20 years of misgovernment

Conrad Black, It is hard to believe that this clangorous campaign of defamations is in its last week. Of course, in the first year of Donald Trump’s largely self-financed campaign, which broke all records for the sale of silly T-shirts, hats, and badges, his pandering was sometimes outrageous, but it was brilliant. As Senator Marco

Marc Siegel, MD: What we still don’t know about Hillary’s health scare

Dr. Marc Siegel,   Consider that many of our greatest presidents have had health concerns and still have served brilliantly. The real focus on candidates’ health therefore should not be strictly on some physical or mental criteria for serving, but rather on the public’s right to know. Some of our greatest presidents served brilliantly despite
