Today’s press conference by President Trump was 21 minutes of straight talk from a president at the top of his game. The question now — as always — is whether his own party will ever wake up from its self-serving slumber and come to his aid. He has to deal with morons like Mitt Romney,

I loved the way Mick Mulvaney handled his press conference today — the first since he took over as White House chief of staff in December 2018. Mulvaney was running interference on the decision to hold the upcoming G7 conference at the Trump Doral resort, knowing full well that the Media Mob and the Coup

Sad! Bolton turns out to be the rat everyone said he was

No one has a worse reputation in Washington, D.C., than John Bolton, the neo-con national security “expert” who never met a war he didn’t like. I’ve been one of the few fans of Bolton, overlooking his hair-trigger willingness to resort to military solutions because I was heartened by his adamant distrust of fundamental Islam. UPDATE:

Beware the media machine! That is the message of the past 24 hours. Ignore it at your own peril. We learned that CNN is run by a venal madman who is obsessed like Captain Ahab with harpooning his great white whale — in this case Donald Trump. Thanks to Project Veritas and an undercover whistleblower,

My column at Real Clear Politics today celebrates President Trump’s decision to put a roadblock in front of the runaway congressional impeachment train. If the Declaration of Independence was a rebuke against a reckless king who had abused his power, the letter written by White House Attorney Pat Cipollone to Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a

Shepard Smith, the embedded Fake News journalist at Fox News, did all conservatives a favor today when he announced he is leaving the cable news giant. No word yet on whether this was Smith’s reaction to being called out by prime-time star Tucker Carlson as a partisan, but it has grown increasingly uncomfortable for

It’s war — and it’s long overdue — but Trump didn’t start it!

The New York Times put out a story yesterday that said “White House declares war on impeachment inquiry.” At first, I thought “Damn right! It’s about time!” But when I pondered it a little more, I realized that the Times as usual had it wrong. The White House wasn’t declaring war; it was just finally

(Here’s a column I wrote for the Daily Inter Lake on April 10, 2016, about the influx of Syrian refugees under the Obama administration’s policy of giving the middle finger to middle America. It was candidate Donald Trump’s opposition to these kinds of policies that got him elected. Pay special attention to the words of

Most people won’t take the time to read the entire extensive length of Chris Buskirk’s column “Yes, Christians Can Support Trump Without Risk to Their Witness.” That’s a shame because they will miss out on some lovely score-settling with Never Trumper David French and his wife Nancy. Moreover, unless readers were prepared to traverse three
