President Trump’s newly-unveiled immigration reforms represent an earth-shattering, fundamental change in U.S. immigration policy that is desperately needed after the never-ending waves of poorly educated, hard-to-assimilate immigrants from unenlightened corners of the earth unleashed by Democrats in the Sixties. “Our question as a

Trump Should Stand Up to Bullies & Reinstate Army Secretary’s Nomination

Todd Starnes, Last week President Trump made the following promise to the nation:  “We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore,” the president said. “We will never ever stand for religious discrimination.” He made that statement last Thursday.

Victor Davis Hanson, Shortly after the 2008 election, President Obama’s soon-to-be chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, infamously declared, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” He elaborated: “What I mean by that (is) it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Disasters, such as the September 2008 financial

The Green Guillotine

Patrick Bobko, If you’ve ever wondered what happens when Berkeley-grade environmentalists finally seize control of all the levers of government power, let me introduce you to my town of Hermosa Beach, California.

Behind The (Revolving) Green Door

Derek Hunter, Much is made about the “revolving door” between working in government and the private sector, particularly lobbying.

The Environmentalist War On Science

Jeff Stier, The EPA just threw out five years of fracking safety research to appease green extremists. Although early drafts found no evidence that fracking has had a “widespread, systemic” impact on drinking water, the final report claims that there isn’t “enough information to make a broad conclusion.” How absurd. An honest look at the
