Trump’s Message: Full Transparency to Restore Trust

Back in the day, I wrote for a president. Not speeches, mind you, but special correspondence and proclamations. Watching this entire nauseating mess with the Justice Department and the FBI—agencies that many believe are corrupt to their core—I thought I'd write a statement for President Donald J. Trump that he could use to

The Creepy and Creeping Power of Social Media

With the recent revelations that “Google allowed "Nazism” to be associated with the California Republican Party in searches, to YouTube removing purely mechanical gun content, to the news that Facebook allowed far greater access to private data than anyone realized, it’s time to have a conversation about what these social and tech giants really

China’s Clear and Present Threat

While the Left continues to lose its mind over Russia and the fairytale of collusion, the fact is Russia simply is not a real threat to the future of our democracy. By any measure, the threat to America's future freedom is China.   When Trump first brought up the issue of tariffs, a great wailing

Why the Leadership of Both Parties Is Lax on Immigration

When then-candidate Donald Trump announced his presidential bid in 2016, he did so with a bang. Right out of the gate, he took on one of the deepest and long-simmering dysfunctions in our republic—illegal immigration. Never one for subtlety when an opportunity for the dramatic presents itself, Trump used what some found to

Trump Won the Schumer Shutdown, Time to Do It Again

Everyone wants President Donald Trump to “get tough.” Tough with special counsel Robert Mueller. Tough with North Korea. Tough with Russia, and Syria, and trading partners around the globe. Even tough with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). On any given day, as the mood may move him, Trump does exactly that, whether
