The GOP’s Tax Cut Blinders

With fewer than 60 days before the midterms, the stakes could not possibly be higher for the Republican Party. Yet despite the incredible strides President Trump is making for the party as he accomplishes what he set out to do, the GOP leadership seems perfectly content with business as usual. Worse, their focus

The Power of Trump’s Endorsement

If ever there was a particular fact of the current political scene that the Left would love to ignore, it would be the success of President Trump’s election endorsements. You may have seen stories from the mainstream media hinting at some sort of “meltdown” within the Republican Party due to Trump, but nothing

What the Washington Post Didn’t Tell You About Pro-Trump Youth, Part II

When the Washington Post attempted to determine just how the youth of the American Right today feel about President Trump, it resulted in a highly selective—and predictable—focus on anti-Trump voices.

NeoCons’ Newfound Obsession with ‘Don’t Own the Libs’

Nikki Haley’s self-righteous declaration that young conservatives should not try to “own the libs” boils down to the foolish notion that we should not actively try to defeat our political opponents because we need to take the moral high ground and focus on losing with dignity. It should go without saying that Haley’s

Democrats Betray Their Leadership in the Name of Socialism

Thirty or 40 years ago, the saying “As California goes, so goes the nation” meant the Golden State set the trends in national politics. California made Ronald Reagan governor, then president. Today, the old saw refers to the fact that California’s ever-shifting demographics—and the far-left tilt of its politics—will more than likely be

The weekend winner of Mexico’s presidential election  was the leftist-populist former mayor of Mexico City, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (known popularly as AMLO).
