Lewandowski’s Contempt for a Contemptible Congress

Shortly after being sworn-in in January, freshman U.S. Representative  Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) promised to “impeach the motherfucker” during an inauguration celebration. The "motherfucker" to whom she was referring, of course, was President Donald Trump. Tlaib’s outburst ushered in the profane, malevolent, and contemptible 115th Congress of the United States. Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski

In the Land of No Consequence, Bad Behavior Festers

Another day, another whopper by the news media and their handlers in the Democratic Party. Shortly after the New York Times published a “bombshell” article over the weekend that described more graphic, decades-old sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the paper was forced to post a significant correction to its original story.

Latest Kavanaugh Accuser Is a Democrat, Clinton Lawyer, Trump Critic

In its now-corrected “bombshell” article, the New York Times over the weekend claimed to have identified yet another witness to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual deviancy in college. Reporters Kate Kelly and Robin Pogrebin touted a “previously unreported story” sourced by a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s who said he saw, “Kavanaugh with his pants down

No, Conservatives Shouldn’t Make Environmental Policy a Priority

As I wrote earlier this week, the Democratic Party is accomplishing what the Republican Party—conservatives in particular—failed to do for more than two decades: Exposing the general public to the radical, authoritarian, and wholly unrealistic agenda lurking behind the facade of the climate change movement. The Green New Deal betrayed the climate crusade’s outlandish demands

A ‘Conservative Case’ for Carbon Taxes That Isn’t

One of the conservative movement’s biggest defeats over the past two decades has been its failure to strip the gears of the climate-change propaganda machine. With few exceptions—among them the Heartland Institute, former Representative Lamar Smith (R-Texas), and a handful of conservative commentators—Republicans surrendered to the climate cabal’s 20-year rampage in our public schools, the

Inspector General’s Report Exposes Another ‘Collusion’ Myth

It is the most damning memo in James Comey’s dossier on Donald Trump: An account of an alleged conversation between Comey and Trump about then-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. According to Comey, during a private meeting in the Oval Office on February 14, 2017, President Trump asked the former FBI director to drop an inquiry

The Political Class Is ‘Exhausted’

There is a small slice of the American populace who, by their own admission, are exhausted. No, I do not refer to new moms caring for cranky infants or emergency room nurses working the night shift or tactical officers patrolling the ’hood or farmers plowing their soybean crops. Our bone-weary countrymen populate opinion magazines, newsrooms,

Our Tawdry, Untrustworthy Fourth Estate

The ongoing affair between the nation’s top law enforcement agency and the news media resulted in another hookup last week when CNN announced the hiring of Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI. McCabe, a vocal Trump foe who opened a criminal investigation into the sitting president of the United States in May

The War on ‘White Supremacy’ Invades the Farmer’s Market

The mayor of Bloomington, Indiana knows who is responsible for the race-related turmoil plaguing his town’s weekly farmer’s market and dividing his college community: Donald Trump, of course. In a press conference last month announcing he would suspend the popular event for two weeks amid accusations one of the vendors is a white supremacist, Mayor
