What President-elect Trump should do now: Ten suggestions

Bill Whalen,   For nearly seventeen months now, I presumed that Donald Trump was playing an elaborate game of chicken with the American people. Sure, Trump was running for president.

Keith Koffler, Lifezette  Another Clinton making backroom deals to help her friends is just what this country doesn’t need.

Democrats Rush To Get Ahead Of ‘September Surprise’

Matt Vespa,   With the latest news that 85% of the inconsistences with the enrollment process can’t be fixed, a dismal approval rating, and a disastrous rollout, no wonder why Senate Democrats are trying to shift the attention elsewhere. State health insurance rates for 2015 are being released later this fall. This has got Democrats on

Obama’s New Press Secretary: Obama

 Farewell to Jay Carney, who ably served President Barack Obama during his three years as White House press secretary, an exhausting job. Before he leaves the West Wing for the final time, he should perform one more valuable public service: Tell his boss to conduct his own news conferences. In his first five years in
