Polls Don’t Tell the Tale—Trump’s Support is Deep. Here’s Why…

As a conservative Republican, I harbored concerns when I voted last November for Donald Trump to be my president. I knew that I had to vote for him, given the unacceptable alternative of an incompetent liar who had placed me in a basket of “Deplorables”; had destroyed 33,000 emails that she covertly maintained

Repealing Obamacare Could Spur Much-Needed Bipartisanship

Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate,” President Trump tweeted last week. “Dems will join in!” Much as so many Americans like to denigrate the president's freewheeling Twitter commentary, in this case I believe he is on to something.

Mueller’s Investigation Must Be Limited and Accountable

How much goalpost moving should be tolerable in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation? Remember, we started with an allegation that the Trump campaign may have been complicit in the Putin regime’s “cyber-espionage”—i.e., the hacking our intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian government operatives carried out against email accounts tied to Democrats. The investigation took

Swampland’s Ten Commandments

The Trump family is no doubt canny about the dog-eat-dog landscapes of the Manhattan real estate lagoon. But when the Trumps arrived in Washington, as political novices they entered an entirely new swampland, with which so far they remain unfamiliar. Their transition down the coastal corridor is sort of like leaving a Florida
