Schiff Losing the Memo Wars

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) launched the third salvo in the “Great Memo Wars” over the weekend, and after overshooting his target, it’s apparent that the Democrats either didn’t know what they were doing when they released their rebuttal memo on so-called "Russian collusion," or they were again seeking to create confusion or

Mass Shootings Point to a Problem—and It Isn’t Guns

I’m a father of four children who all attend public school. My love for them and their value to me and to society are immeasurable. When they enter their school building, where they spend the most time outside of our home, I want to know they are safe and have confidence that they

DACA, the Wall, and the Deal

Earlier this week President Trump, in a masterful political move, invited some top congressional leaders to discuss immigration with him on live television at the White House.

Don’t Reform the CFPB: Burn It Down, Salt the Earth

Interim CFPB Director Mick Mulvaney Washington, D.C. is a town full of acronyms and Orwellian Doublespeak. But one of the newer alphabet-soup agencies is causing a particular stir of late—the ironically named Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Just the other day President Trump tweeted, The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB,
