The Four Pillars of the D.C. Swamp: Part 2

Written by Walker Wildmon

There are four pillars of the Swamp in Washington, D.C. Each of these pillars works against the American people and President Trump’s agenda.

The legislative branch and judicial branch are the first two pillars; they are discussed here in Part 1 of this blog series. Each institution, in its original form, was created for good. Now, these once good institutions have been remade into something that has and continues to hurt our country.… Continue Reading

The Four Pillars of the D.C. Swamp

Written by Walker Wildmon

There are four pillars of the Swamp in Washington, D.C. Each of them works against the American people and President Trump’s agenda.

The legislative and judicial branches are the first two pillars. Each institution, in their original form, were created for good. Now, these once good institutions have been remade into something that has and continues, to hurt our country.

The legislative branch is currently being used to maintain the status quo and prevent President Trump from carrying out all that he and other Republicans promised voters they would do.… Continue Reading

‘Fake News’ Is Not a Fake Term

Written by David Limbaugh

The left and Trump-opposing right are predictably annoyed at President Trump’s persistent description of the liberal media as “fake news.” Like it or not, the term as he uses it has merit.

Trump’s opponents hysterically claim he threatens the free press when he uses that term to describe them, just as they accuse him of other alleged abuses of constitutional power. In fact, unlike President Obama, Trump has governed within his constitutional authority.… Continue Reading

Capitalism vs. Socialism

Written by Walter E. Williams

Several recent polls, plus the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, demonstrate that young people prefer socialism to free market capitalism. That, I believe, is a result of their ignorance and indoctrination during their school years, from kindergarten through college. For the most part, neither they nor many of their teachers and professors know what free market capitalism is.

Free market capitalism, wherein there is peaceful voluntary exchange, is morally superior to any other economic system.… Continue Reading

Dancing with Socialism, Ignoring Reality

Written by Robert Knight

In the United States, surveys show that many Millennials are not merely soft on socialism but openly support it. They think capitalism benefits only the “one percent” and no one else, despite America’s matchless record of upward mobility and prosperity.

Since the 1960s, the media, Hollywood and the education system have presented a warped view of America along with a sugarcoated version of socialism. So, we should not be surprised when we see so many young people fooled by the false promises of redistributive economics.… Continue Reading

I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence

Written by David Limbaugh

I’ve repeatedly said that though President Trump gives his leftist enemies plenty of fodder in his tweets to attack him, they would malign any Republican president unless he totally capitulated to their demands — and switched parties. Indeed, they always have.

The liberals say Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal obsession with destroying his presidency. Yet Vice President Mike Pence is one of the finest people around, and they can’t stand him, either.… Continue Reading

Rauner’s Deceitful Campaign Ads

Written by Laurie Higgins

Pinocchio Rauner has astoundingly deceitful campaign ads about campaign rival Jeanne Ives running on Fox News and appearing like stinkbugs and cockroaches in the mailboxes of the good people of Illinois.

Let’s take a quick look at the putrescent propaganda that I found stinking up my mailbox. Here are Rauner’s lies in yellow followed by the truth.

Rauner lie #1: Ives is a “career politician.”

Truth: The 53-year-old Ives began her career in the Illinois State House in January 2013, so she just completed her 5th year in Springfield.… Continue Reading

Chicago Tribune Endorses Feckless Bruce Rauner for Governor

Written by Laurie Higgins

The Chicago Tribune just endorsed “No-Social-Agenda” Rauner for governor. Yes, the man named the “Worst Republican Governor in America” by National Review, the man who admitted that after three years in office he’s “not in charge,” and the man who went down in ignominious and humiliating defeat in his debate with Jeanne Ives was just endorsed by the Chicago Tribune.

The Trib’s endorsement of Pinocchio Rauner reveals that the issues that matter most to the Trib are the dismissively called “social issues.” Just two weeks ago, the editorial board waxed enthusiastic about Ives’ debate performance and her command of policy.Continue Reading

The Missing Democratic Agenda

Written by Matthew Continetti

Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in Elizabeth Warren‘s house as people went crazy over the prospect of Oprah 2020. I can only imagine Warren’s reaction. Did she yell at the TV? Mutter under her breath? Immediately call her media consultant in panic?

We know the slight got to her. By midweek she was making the rounds on cable. There she was, with Mark Warner of Virginia, reminding us of her existence, talking about God knows what, and smiling uncomfortably when asked, inevitably, what she thought of the Lady O.… Continue Reading
