No, James Comey, America Doesn’t Want Your Help

America is a dangerously divided nation. Democrats, unable to accept the results of a presidential election three years ago, would now undo the constitutional expression of American voters by pushing a half-cocked impeachment inquiry. Democratic presidential candidates offer outlandish ideas such as free healthcare to illegal immigrants and subsidized gender reassignment surgery for inmates while […]

Trump’s Latest Move Against the Press: Get to Da Choppa!

Originally published at New York Post. In his latest battle with the American news media, President Trump is bringing out the heavy artillery: Marine One. Since abandoning the daily press briefing, which had sunk into an embarrassing spectacle where journalists would bully former press secretary Sarah Sanders, the White House now favors “chopper-pressers” where the […]

House Dems Move to Impeach, Senate GOP Writes Mean Letters

While Congressional Democrats continue to violate House protocol, constitutional guardrails, and the boundaries of common decency in their quest to impeach President Trump, Senate Republicans are fighting back—by writing mean letters. This vicious counterpunch, launched by powerful Word documents, carefully crafted by the most erudite Senate committee staffers, formatted on embossed letterhead, and signed with […]

Time To Reassess CrowdStrike’s Credibility

Days before the Senate voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh last year, a former FBI assistant director appeared on MSNBC to suggest the Supreme Court nominee had a major credibility problem. “This is not…an investigation about the sexual allegations, I think it really has moved toward credibility,” Shawn Henry, an NBC News analyst, told Nicolle Wallace […]

The Anesthetic Effect of Ukrainegate

Wary political commentators on the Right have noted that the ginned up outrage over President Trump’s call with the Ukranian president serves two political purposes: One, to supply the impeachment goods that Special Counsel Robert Mueller could not deliver and two, to obfuscate the ongoing investigations led by Attorney General William Barr into how the […]

Inspector General’s Ties Suggest Ukraine ‘Scandal’ is Just More Collusion Hoax

Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community’s inspector general at the center of the so-called “whistleblower” report, is earning Robert Mueller-level adoration by the press. Atkinson, we are told, is a truth-seeker with no partisan agenda or political grudge. “The intelligence community’s chief watchdog, Michael Atkinson, is known to his peers and colleagues as a highly cautious […]

‘Ukraine-Gate’ Is About the Russian Hack That Wasn’t

One of the animating chapters in the Trump-Russian collusion saga was the claim that Russia infiltrated the Democratic National Committee’s email server in the spring of 2016. That hack, according to collusion truthers, and the subsequent release of damaging emails exchanged between top Democratic Party officials was central to Vladimir Putin’s scheme to sway the […]

A Detailed Account of America’s Greatest Political Scandal

In early 2017, as the shocking story of how the Obama Administration weaponized the world’s most powerful agencies against Donald Trump began to unfold, very few journalists were willing to confront that scandal amid the cacophony of Trump-Russia collusion. Andrew McCarthy was one of them. From the pages of National Review to the set of […]

Biden’s Real Foreign Election Interference: Russiagate

It looks as though Joe Biden is about to bumble and babble and bluster his way to a third failed run for president. Even before President Trump took aim at Hunter Biden for his shady financial ties to the Ukraine while his father was vice president, Biden was struggling with basic facts and weird stories […]

Child Hostages Obey Their Climate Captors

On Friday, schoolchildren around the world will be prompted to walk out of class as part of the “Global Climate Strike.” These young “climate strikers” will protest alleged inaction on climate change and promote an end to fossil fuel use. “Our house is on fire—let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone,” the […]

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 […]

Only the Press Could Get Away With This

Let’s say you are a salesman for a major company and while attending an industry conference, you begin screaming, cursing and threatening one of the hosts—in public. Or, let’s say you are a manager for a major company and you make up a story about how a competitor secured a bank loan and you spread […]

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 […]
