Americans Deserve a Full Hearing on the Trump-Russia Hoax

The House Intelligence Committee closed its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, concluding there is “no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.” Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), who led the committee’s probe, said his team interviewed 73 witnesses and reviewed more than 300,000 documents over the past […]

To Hillary from White Married Women

Dear Hillary: Hey, girl. Good to see you up and about these days. I hear India is lovely this time of year. Watch those steps! So, listen—we need to talk. I think it’s time you heard directly from some white, married women about why we didn’t vote for you. You can trust me. Like you, […]

The Insidious Obama Administration

This week delivered two bits of very bad news for the Obama Administration: Top Republican lawmakers formally requested the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Justice Department’s conduct in 2016 and 2017, and long-withheld documents related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal will finally be released to Congress. It couldn’t have happened […]

Russian Scapegoats at the Ready for 2018

Fearful that the highly touted “blue wave” of Democratic wins in the fall midterm elections won’t be powerful enough to sink Republican control of Congress, anxious anti-Trump pundits are already looking for excuses. And, spoiler alert—it’s the Russians. In a weekend New York Times column that is a peek into the paranoid mind of a […]

Into the NeverTrump Gulag

Deep in the D.C. Suburbs—After a frightening New York Times column by Bret Stephens comparing Trump supporters to Stalinists and NeverTrump “conservatives” to anti-Communist freedom-fighters, several NeverTrumpers—fearing for their safety—have taken refuge in the suburban home of their de facto leader, Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol. The group includes Stephens, Washington Post columnists Jennifer Rubin […]

This is CNN: The Children’s News Network

Every child knows intuitively that losing is not fun. Toddlers will steal a coveted toy right from the hands of an unwitting playmate in the ultimate power move; grade-schoolers will weep openly on the soccer-field sidelines after the usual 1-0 loss; and just try to console a sophomore girl whose latest crush asks someone else […]

You Can’t Win the Budget Battle Until You Win the Trust War

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) ended Saturday, and it went out with a bang. During a panel discussion about the #MeToo movement, National Review columnist Mona Charen accused the Republican Party of being hypocritical on women’s issues because a “sexual abuser” and  “harasser” (her words) is “sitting in the White House.” She attempted to […]

One More for the NRA

I just joined the National Rifle Association. Although I’ve always been somewhat open-minded about gun control, especially high-powered weapons, the current mob mentality of the Left—incited by propagandists in the media—has closed my mind. The spectacle over the Florida school shooting proves the Left will exploit any tragedy, manipulate any victim, and demonize any detractor […]

The Unbearable Mendacity of NeverTrump-Inspired Comparisons

It requires a special degree of mendacity to compare Robert Mueller’s recent indictments to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Only someone desperate to get attention, or to please his new Trump-hating masters at a top news organization, or to improve his name recognition to sell his new book, would be shameless enough to equate one […]

The Media’s Walk-of-Shame Won’t End

The media have been on a walk-of-shame bender since 2016. They were whored out by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, swallowed the Christopher Steele dossier, and still get drunk-dialed by the Left. The cheap-date journos show up every time. Each morning, the media floozies trudge through the quad wearing their “I’m With Her” t-shirts from the […]

In Porter Saga, Media Concern About Abuse is Secondary

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy told CNN Wednesday morning that his committee is looking into how the White House handled domestic abuse allegations against former staff secretary Rob Porter. The media has been on a weeklong feeding frenzy since the Daily Mail posted an exclusive interview with Porter’s second ex-wife claiming he emotionally and verbally […]

Climate Cabal Purges ‘Deniers’

The climate cabal is in a panic. The Trump Administration is systematically dismantling President Obama’s climate change legacy: Federal agencies are scrubbing references to climate change, President Trump announced the United States. would exit the Paris Climate Accord, and his cabinet is peddling American-made fossil fuels around the world. Climate change barely registered a blip […]

Black Lines Matter

We now have a side-by-side comparison of two FBI-redacted versions of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s criminal referral of Christopher Steele for lying to the FBI. After releasing a heavy-redacted memo on Monday, committee chairman  Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) put out  an updated version late Tuesday after the FBI removed several of its earlier redactions. It offers […]

Steele’s Credibility—and the FBI’s—Keeps Unraveling

Here is one more reason why the Nunes memo is consequential: Its release prompted the Justice Department and FBI to grant the Senate Judiciary Committee’s request to declassify portions of its criminal referral of dossier author Christopher Steele for making false statements to federal officials. The new information corroborates a key allegation in the Nunes […]

Media Fumble Their Latest Attack on Nunes Memo

The media and Democratic spinmeisters think we are stupid. Wait, check that. Not just stupid—illiterate. How else to explain their latest attempt—to borrow a promo from CNN—to tell us an apple is a banana? More specifically, how could they twist media reports that do not say the Justice Department informed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court […]

Johnson Widens his Probe

For most of last week, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security committee, was mocked for talking to the press about a “secret society” at the FBI. The media, Democrats, and some NeverTrumpers on the Right accused the senator of pushing conspiracy theories based on what they called a “joke” contained in […]

Jimmy Kimmel Hits a New Low

It was embarrassing to watch. In what might be a new low for broadcast television, as well as in the entertainment industry’s ongoing attempt to undo a sitting U.S. president, ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel interviewed porn star Stormy Daniels on Tuesday night following President Trump’s State of the Union address. Daniels’ alleged sexual […]

NeverTrump Pundits Sing Hillary’s Tune

If you need an example of what The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway described as “panic and fear out there in official D.C. in response to dramatic lack of substance underlying Trump-Russia collusion,” look no further than the latest propaganda coming from the cabal of anti-Trump commentators on the Right. After 18 months of helping the media […]

Anti-Trump Right Turns a Blind Eye to Alleged FBI Misconduct

We have now reached the “false equivalence” act of the NeverTrump Show. In this episode, we find the president’s foes on the Right equating the outrage of his supporters over potential corruption at the FBI regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation with the outrage his detractors over Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia election-collusion investigation. For months, many […]

Forget Coattails: GOP Needs Trump’s Backbone in 2018

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) just got beaten by Jell-O. After talks to reopen the government stalled on Saturday, the Senate Minority Leader said, “negotiating with this White House is like negotiating with Jell-O, it is next to impossible.” Schumer also warned, “there needs to be a big deal on a range of topics—including not just […]
