The Irresponsibility of Jussie Smollett

Written by Jonathon Clay de Hale

When Jussie Smollett’s account of being attacked first broke at the end of January, I watched with interest but didn’t say anything. It seemed a bit cartoonish: two white guys wearing MAGA hats giving a gay black man a beat down in the middle of Chicago on a night of sub-zero temperatures, yelling racial and anti-gay epithets, dousing him with bleach, tying a noose around his neck and proclaiming, “This is MAGA country!” You couldn’t have scripted a better scenario for a hate crime in the age of Trump.… Continue Reading

A Crisis When It Suits Their Purpose

Written by Robert Knight

Since the federal shutdown began [four] weeks ago, the liberal media have presented dozens of Chicken Little stories claiming that the sky is falling.

“Three dead in national park system accidents as shutdown wears on,” screamed a six-column headline in the Washington Post on January 5.

“The deaths follow a decision by Trump administration officials to leave the scenic — but sometimes deadly — parks open even as the Interior Department has halted most of its operations,” the article said.… Continue Reading

What’s Your Solution to Rampaging Judicial Tyranny?

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Extreme leftists such as U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives this year. They have a lot of radical policy ideas they’d love to see enacted, but the reality is that they are powerless to implement any of them as mere individual members of Congress. But a dangerous and erroneous premise has persisted in our political system that if somehow those individuals got appointed to federal judgeships, they would have the ability to unilaterally enact any policy they choose by granting legal groups standing in court cases – and have that decision be regarded as the law of the land.… Continue Reading

A Wall Is an Absolute Necessity

Written by Walker Wildmon

For decades, America’s southern border has been virtually non-existent. On a map, one would be able to easily identify the border between the United States of America and Mexico. But having an agreed upon border and enforcing that border are two different discussions. The problem that America has faced is that in most places there is no physical barrier to stop or hinder illegal border crossings.

What has this led to? It has led to millions of illegal border crossings over the past few decades.… Continue Reading

Mitt’s Message

Written by Gary Bauer

The past two years have witnessed some of the most brutal political battles in modern American history.  Leftists refused to accept the 2016 election results.  They disrupted the inauguration.  And the Deep State has been attempting to undermine the Trump presidency every day since he was elected.

After having been AWOL for much of this fight, U.S. Senator-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) has published an opinion piece in the Washington Post offering his critique of Washington. … Continue Reading

The 3 Biggest Media-Deep State Scams

Written by Wayne Allyn Root

Remember the old warning from President Dwight D. Eisenhower about the “military industrial complex”? He was right.

But the defense industry has nothing on the D.C. Swamp, the Deep State, the Democrat Party and the group that does their bidding: the Liberal Media Industrial Complex. They will do anything, lie about anything, slander and manipulate in order to make government bigger and more powerful. And they will go scorched-earth to destroy anyone who opposes them.… Continue Reading

Judicial Nominee Tom Farr and the Left’s Smears

Written by Joseph A. Morris

President Trump’s nomination of my former assistant at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Thomas A. Farr, to be a Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina is finally coming to the floor of the U.S. Senate this week. It’s in the queue and the U.S. Senate may get to it this week.

Tom is a learned, thoughtful, kindly, even-tempered man. He has been an extremely accomplished and successful lawyer in public and private practice.… Continue Reading

How the GOP Has Taken Ownership of Obamacare

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Republicans have not only betrayed their promise to repeal Obamacare, they have made Obamacare popular. They have championed its three core elements while refusing to even make the case against all its vulnerabilities and are now running on preserving it. While we are all focused on the results of November 6, we must gird up for a longer battle that, if not waged and won, will ensure we never have health care freedom in America, because consensus for government-run monopolies is close to fruition.… Continue Reading

My Support for Judge Kavanaugh

Written by David J. Shestokas

Investigating President Trump’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh brought back memories of law school and a nettlesome problem I observed in America. Here’s how I came to believe a Justice Kavanaugh will be good for America.

As part of being on law review all members write a piece called a “note”. It’s not an “article” since it’s a piece being written by a law student, not a lawyer.… Continue Reading

Unless We Heed Clarence Thomas’ Warning, SCOTUS ‘Travel Ban’ Victory is Hollow

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Our political system regards the U.S. Supreme Court as superior to the other two branches of government. Why then doesn’t the high court wield its supremacy over its own branch and rein in the lawlessness of the lower courts? Shouldn’t it uproot a growing power grab by the lower courts that are issuing nationwide injunctions over broad policies? Justice Clarence Thomas seems to think so.

In Thomas’ concurrence in the “travel ban” case, he spends just one paragraph dealing with the merits of the case.… Continue Reading
