Foreign influence? How Trump Can Shut Down the Birth Tourism Scam

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Over the next few weeks the news cycle will be paralyzed by an impeachment trial that is essentially about foreign interference in our politics. However, the Trump administration has an opportunity to act on one of the most sinister foreign influences in our country, namely, birth tourism, being used by — you guessed it — Russia and China. If foreign influence is of such great concern to Democrats, shouldn’t we all agree to stop the practice of awarding those who lie to get into the country or who infiltrate our border with the ultimate prize of American citizenship?… Continue Reading

Pelosi’s Democrats Threaten Democracy in the Name of Protecting It

Written by David Limbaugh

Did you notice how presidential President Donald Trump appeared at his press conference on Iran? It was a fitting symbol for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s colossal failure in withholding the impeachment articles from the U.S. Senate.

Whatever Pelosi’s loony strategy — her unorthodox decision to withhold is only about strategy and not principle — she has ensured that the hyperpartisan impeachment will be viewed for exactly what it was. For all the Democrats’ manufactured impeachment drama, people seem to care less and less about the their shameless effort to affix a scarlet letter to Trump’s presidential record.… Continue Reading

How the 2020 Census Will Change the U.S. House

Written by Matt Palumbo

The conclusions of a recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) paper were misinterpreted and misreported by some as claiming that Republicans would lose twenty-four seats in states that voted for Donald Trump as a result of the 2020 census. What the study actually said was that because we count legal non-citizens and illegal aliens in the Census for population (which determines how representation is apportioned), the cumulative effects of that are that Democrats have twenty-four more seats than they otherwise would’ve had we never counted non-citizens and illegals in the first place.… Continue Reading

The Democrats’ Impeachment of Trump Will Live in Infamy

Written by Jonathan Clay de Hale

A date that will live in infamy.” ~President Franklin D. Roosevelt,
addressing the nation on December 8, 1941, the day after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor

Those words apply equally to the partisan vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18, 2019 to impeach President Donald J. Trump. Not everyone will see the deed as infamous, but at least half of American voters will. Historians 50 years from now will agree that the attempt to impeach this president was politically motivated, did great damage to our system of government, and was an unprecedented abuse of power.… Continue Reading

Pelosi’s Democrats Unite and Catalyze the GOP

Written by David Limbaugh

Nothing has done more to unite Republicans — from GOP congressmen in Washington, D.C., to malodorous Walmart patrons in rural America — than the Democrats’ quixotic, vendetta-fueled crusade against President Donald Trump.

Trump’s election was a seismic blow to the left, which has paralyzed it with hatred and reduced it to a gigantic mob of bloated self-importance and radical opposition.

Have you ever heard congressional Democrats pay such homage to the Constitution?… Continue Reading

Christianity Today’s Call for Trump’s Removal

Written by Laurie Higgins

Mark Galli, editor-in-chief of the former evangelical flagship magazine Christianity Today (CT) wrote a stunning editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office via either impeachment or the next election. While acknowledging that “Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion,” Galli remarkably asserts that the case for Trump’s removal by hook or crook is indisputable:

But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents.

It’s All Relative: Looking for Truth

Written by Pastor Cory Musgrave

On December 18, 2019, I watched as the divided U.S. House of Representatives debated the impeachment of the President of the United States. While Republicans and Democrats spent equal time proclaiming vastly different positions on impeachment, I wondered how Americans could look at the same set of facts and arrive at opposite conclusions. Impeachment of the president while disregarding facts is not, however, the problem. Rather, impeachment of the president without regard for facts is a symptom of the malignant rejection of truth in our country.… Continue Reading

Boy, Have the Democrats Ever Overplayed Their Hand!

Written by David Limbaugh

If cosmic justice were to prevail, Democrats would drop their impeachment sham in confessed disgrace and move to give President Donald Trump a second term by acclamation for having ceaselessly abused their power in trying to nullify his first term.

Though cosmic justice won’t prevail, the Constitution will, including its prescribed Senate check on impeachment and its provision for election of presidents through the Electoral College.

The Democrats have given new meaning to the term “overplaying your hand,” and their witch hunt will continue to backfire.Continue Reading

Much Ado Over Not Very Much

Written by William Murchison

A history professor I once studied under tended to offer weary responses to technical and highly dispensable questions of the sort that arise in weary seminars. To wit: “But what’s that got to do with the price of eggs?” Or, more pointedly sometimes, “the price of eggs in Arkansas?”

I thought of this aptly characterized boredom threshold as I watched the impeachment — um — hearings on Monday. Hearings? Snorings seems more to the point: a canopy of mingled objections and arguments and the preening of elected officials who know well enough they are on television.… Continue Reading

The Moderate Democrat

Written by Micah Clark

You may have noticed that several news commentators attached the label “moderate” to former New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg last week when he filed papers to run for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

A news story appearing at Town Hall.com this week raises some questions about the notion that Bloomberg is a middle of the road Democrat.   It points to a lawsuit against the former mayor in which an employee told him that she was pregnant.  … Continue Reading
