Larry Kudlow, There were two big money-and-politics stories in the first week of the new year: The Dow Jones industrial average soared 577 points, and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon ended his political career. Are these two events related? Perhaps more than you might think. Bannon’s peculiar notions of populism were essentially anti-growth.
Douglas MacKinnon, As I write this, I am on the southwest coast of Florida and the bands of Hurricane Irma are intensifying. In my estimation, a perfect time to stress that Rush Limbaugh was well within his rights to question the motivations of some in the media and the various weather services with regard to
Greg Gutfeld, We are now completing the third month of the Trumpocalypse. He’s been compared to every madman, every destructive movement, every consequential thing that’s happened in this universe since the Big Bang. People who never raised an eyebrow or their voice about Ebola or Isis or MS-13 are now concerned about this guy. Logic
Amanda Prestigiacomo, The most bizarre spring break trip of all time includes a heroic rescue of underage girls from a burning home, a naked woman found in the middle of the road, and a lot of illegal underage drinking hosted by a substitute teacher and chaperone from the same Alabama school district. Did I mention everyone goes to jail? Because
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Thursday that Judge Neil Gorsuch did little to win over Democrats and predicted that Republicans will not get the votes needed to avoid a filibuster Schumer was among five senators to declare their opposition to Gorsuch Thursday, even before the Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination had ended. Schumer said
Rebecca Mansour, Breitbart For about the thousandth—or is it the millionth?—time, the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal has attacked Donald Trump. But this time there’s a twist. The Journal’s latest hit-piece targets Trump’s top advisers, Stephen K. Bannon and Stephen Miller, both champions of the populist nationalist policies that propelled Trump to victory.
Ron Paul, How many times do we need to be able to blow up the world? It can be a challenge to follow the pronouncements of President Trump, as he often seems to change his position on any number of items from week to week, or from day to day, or even from minute to
Bernard Goldberg, I’ve always found Donald Trump’s most passionate supporters more interesting than Donald Trump himself. Trump is easy to understand. He’s a man who craves adulation. Adulation, applause, ratings — they are his oxygen. He hasn’t been president for a month yet and already he was out in Florida holding a campaign-style rally. His
Jacob Engles | East Orlando Post, Club indoctrinates elementary to middle school children, after caught hosting ‘Leftist Fight Club’ Days after the University of Central Florida faced national outrage over letting an unregistered student group hold an event promoting violence, the Knights for Socialism have taken their radical antics a step further. On Friday, the
Bruce Ashford, This week, Democrats made history by forcing Vice President Mike Pence to cast the deciding vote for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Why did Democrats decide to engage in all-out war against an education secretary? Why devote weeks of phone calls, media interviews, and emotional energy to defeating her rather than one of the
Wayne Allyn Root, I predicted Trump would be amazing as president. I predicted his energy and “CAN-DO” attitude would make things happen…fast! I predicted he’d turn around America’s decline…fast. I predicted he’d quickly erase Obama and everything he ever did as president…fast. But this is ridiculous. It’s like “Christmas in January” for conservatives. Every day is a
Dan Celia, Donald Trump’s first week in the presidency has been fascinating—and it’s not over. So far, he has met with congressional leaders, including Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and scheduled a meeting for Friday with British Prime Minister Theresa May. She will be the first foreign leader to
