The Biggest Threat to the First Amendment is the Press Itself

The media has been deceptive and/or outright lying about Trump for a long time now. Mollie Hemingway detailed just a few of their whoppers in a recent piece. When the president exercised his constitutional authority to fire FBI Director James Comey, the New York Times published a story accusing Trump of pressuring Comey

Combating the Power of Media Lies

In the last few days two supposed revelations  have shaken Donald Trump’s Presidency. The first, the May 15 Washington Post claim that in a meeting with Russian officials the previous week, President Trump “revealed to them highly classified information.” The Posts’ anonymous sources, went on to assert that “Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical

No Guilt This Time

I have given up on discussing the ascendance of Donald Trump with anyone who didn’t vote for him. They are too hard in their denunciation. A mild suggestion that the Democratic Party went so far into identity politics that it pushed people toward a leader outspokenly tired of political correctness leads at most

In the Battle for Liberty, Complacency is Retreat

Another day, another health care debate being dominated by the Leftist opposition. Earlier this week, the Republican leaders in Congress announced that they had come to an agreement with the House Freedom Caucus and would be putting forward a new attempt at repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The reaction

How the Obama Precedent Empowered Trump

Donald Trump was elected president by sizing up the Electoral College, and the voting public, and then campaigning accordingly. A number of the things that explain Trump’s election also point to unique opportunities to overturn the Obama legacy. This, in turn, explains why the Left is understandably upset about the unprecedented scope of

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love a European White House Correspondent

I was fortunate to be among some 50 conservative journalists and writers invited to a private reception and press briefing at the White House on April 24. It was mostly a symbolic act, meant to reward long-time loyalists who’d risked blacklisting and anathema by the establishment media for supporting Donald Trump, with the
