If you only read the mainstream, openly left-wing, and establishment Republican media, you’d think it was Apocalypse Now in America.

Paraphrasing Pauline Kael’s alleged statement about how she didn’t see Nixon’s win coming because she didn’t know anyone who voted for him: The doom and gloom media doesn’t know anyone who doesn’t hate...

I haven’t had a chance to fully digest the House health care bill.  I’m just beginning the process of learning more.

Trump supports the bill broadly, subject to some negotiations. And is promising a round 2 and round 3 of more market-oriented reforms.

It appears that much of this procedure is driven by...

As noted in our earlier post, Donald Trump’s accusation of Obama administration surveillance on Trump and/or the campaign and/or Trump Tower is believed to have come from a Breitbart News article which itself was based on an outline articulated by Mark Levin.

Donald Trump’s accusation that the Obama administration “wiretapped” his phones and/or Trump Tower, continues to reverberate.

The accusations have refocused the argument over Trump’s alleged Russia ties, which amount at this point only to innuendo, into a discussion of Obama surveillance practices.

As discussed in my prior post, which is getting a lot...

March 8 is being organized as “A Day Without A Woman,” and promoted by the people behind the highly-organized Women’s March.

The March 8 protest asks women not to work and to otherwise go on strike.

It was conceived by a small group of radicals, including convicted terrorist murderer Rasmea Odeh.

The hot dispute of the weekend is Donald Trump’s tweets this morning about alleged “wiretapping” by the Obama administration. Some thoughts below.

I don’t think you can view today’s tweets in isolation.
