What Would Kasich Do?

Looking back at the past year, the Year of Living Trumpantly, it’s clear to fair-minded individuals—that excludes the media and every other Democrat—that the Trump presidency has been a resounding success. Many Republicans, even ardent Trump supporters, are pleasantly surprised. No one was really quite sure what they would be getting with Trump.

Our Anglo-American Heritage Can’t Be Wished Away by the Left

As a history professor and long-time instructor in “Western Civilization” classes, I was dumbfounded by recent leftist attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions, at a meeting of U.S. sheriffs, innocuously observed that these highly respected police officials are part of our country's democratic and “Anglo-American” legal and law enforcement heritage. The term

Portraits on Parade

Huzzah! We know you've been waiting for it. We know the suspense has had you twitching in anticipation. Now, here they are! The National Portrait Gallery's portraits of President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have been unveiled. Double huzzah! Americans are accustomed to official portraits.

Andrew McCarthy Fires on all Cylinders on POTUS Surveillance

Columnist for National Review Andrew McCarthy spoke with Chris Buskirk and Seth Leibsohn about unpeeling all the layers of the ongoing story of the level of involvement of the Obama Administration in surveillance over former candidate and now President Donald Trump’s phone. They all discussed the Steele dossier, Nunes Memo, Grassley memo, and there

‘Deep State’ Unmasked

Former FBI Director Jim Comey’s leaks to the press, the bias in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the Strzok-Page texts, anti-Trump “secret societies” within intelligence agencies, and the damning Nunes memo. Taken together, it’s tough to escape the conclusion that the “deep state” is real and it doesn't like President Trump. The president

Swatting Mr. Trump

Let's assume your neighbor is a jerk. His kid broke your window playing ball and he doesn't think he should pay for it. He throws empty beer cans over his fence into your backyard. His 10 dogs, all the size of Shetland ponies, use your yard for a toilet and snarl if you

Republican Embarrassments

Free-marketers are right that tax cuts stimulate economic growth that in turn lead to expanding production and eventually more federal tax revenue. But the problem traditionally has been that to obtain tax reductions, Republicans also have had to sign on reluctantly to larger expenditures. Or, worse, they willingly believed they could spend more,

Climate Cabal Purges ‘Deniers’

The climate cabal is in a panic. The Trump Administration is systematically dismantling President Obama’s climate change legacy: Federal agencies are scrubbing references to climate change, President Trump announced the United States. would exit the Paris Climate Accord, and his cabinet is peddling American-made fossil fuels around the world. Climate change barely registered

Why Did the FBI Set Up Trump?

The FBI spied on the Trump campaign. The pretext was that the campaign, and possibly Donald Trump himself, was compromised by the volunteer efforts of foreign policy advisor, Carter Page. Stories diverge regarding Page, his reputation, and his involvement with the Russian government. Some sources say energy consultant Carter Page was a shady

Why FISA-gate Is Scarier Than Watergate

The Watergate scandal of 1972-74 was uncovered largely because of outraged Democratic politicians and a bulldog media. They both claimed that they had saved American democracy from the Nixon Administration's attempt to warp the CIA and FBI to cover up an otherwise minor, though illegal, political break-in. In the Iran-Contra affair of 1985-87,
