Trump should follow Reagan’s strategy, which was more policy than personality

Cal Thomas, Personality and Policy! In the aftermath of the debacle over the Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, President Trump can learn a valuable lesson that will serve him well in the next battle over tax reform and other issues. The president was elected largely on the force of his strong personality and

A Historic Opportunity: Government programs, once launched, never disappear

Cal Thomas, “No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!” — Ronald Reagan President Trump presents his first budget to Congress today (Thursday). It is, as The Washington Post points out, “historic”

When It Comes to Chaos, Trump Has Nothing on Previous Presidents

Ed Klein,  If you get most of your news from the mainstream media, you might come to the conclusion that the first month of Donald Trump’s administration is unique in the annals of presidential chaos and incompetence. Rather than the “well-oiled machine” touted by Trump, the press portrays his presidency as a jalopy full of

Ronald Reagan Would Have Hated this Stupid ‘Conservative’ Carbon Tax Idea

James Delingpole, Donald Trump should pursue a regressive, counterproductive, pointless tax policy to deal with a non-existent problem because it’s “what the Gipper would have wanted.” Yeah, right. What the late Ronald Reagan is actually doing right now, I strongly suspect, is reaching for the celestial sickbag over this absurd proposal – endorsed by, amongst others,

Of Judges and Other Lawmakers

Bill Murchison, The structure of American government has not received such a visible going-over since, oh, perhaps 1787.

How Trump Will Destroy Democrats #DrainTheSwamp

Bryan Crabtree, The massive display of outrage against President Trump’s immigration order, cabinet picks, Supreme Court justice-nominee and other executive actions is nothing more than a ruse. Most people on ‘the political left,’ could care less about refugees, immigrants or free health care. Their main concern is power and money. And, their window of opportunity

The left should be scared to death after Trump’s first week

Newt Gingrich, The elite left and their propagandists in the media are already in hysterics over President Trump’s first week in office, but for most Americans there are no surprises here. The president is doing exactly what he has said he would do for the last two years on the campaign – immediately get to

Pot-Kettle Media Call Trump Insecure

David Limbaugh, The Associated Press reports that President Donald Trump is “dogged by insecurity over his loss of the popular vote” and over “media coverage,” but I have a different idea about whose insecurity is on display. The entire liberal establishment and rank-and-file leftists remain in denial over Trump’s victory. They convinced themselves from the

Reagan Era, Simpson-Mazzoli Bill: A nation derided for doing the right thing

Wesley Pruden, Immigration, both the legal and the illegal kind, is destined to be a contentious issue in America forever. That’s the price of living in the place where everybody wants to be. This tempts some people to lead with their emotions when they talk about immigration. If you engage these folks in a conversation

Fakewood EXPOSED: Where Fake News began

Zero Hedge, With the internet rife with “Fake News” – Fake Profiles, fake comments, and fake just about everything; let’s do what an intelligence analyst should do (that is, analyze and not just do whatever his client pays him to do). And, the first step before collecting current information is to understand the history. In
