Trump’s Twitter activity sucks the oxygen out of almost all other news.

So much so that nemesis Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill getting caught in another lie about never meeting the Russian Ambassador flew mostly under the media radar.

Back in March 2017, when Russia-mania was in full fury, Claire McCaskill attacked Jeff Sessions...

When the Supreme Court reinstated substantially all of Trump’s Travel Order No. 2, the Supreme Court carved out an exception for people who have a “bona fide” relationship to the U.S. Such persons could not be subjected to a blanket, country-wide prohibition from entering the U.S. (emphasis added):

I just finished reading Mark Levin’s new book, Rediscovering Americanism and The Tyranny of Progressivism. The book debuted at No 1 on the NY Times bestseller list.

Politico magazine has a very detailed article on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), for which I was interviewed, Has a Civil Rights Stalwart Lost Its Way?.

The article, written by Ben Schreckinger, addresses several aspects of the SPLC, including its massive accumulation of wealth seemingly beyond its needs. But much of the...

With the House having passed a healthcare bill, and the Senate close to passing a version, there is a lot of debate over the specifics of the bills.

Shameless Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders portray Republicans as setting out to kill tens of thousands of Americans. In the...

When Robert Mueller was first appointed Special Counsel, I thought, given his generally good reputation, that this might be a streamlined process with fewer leaks, focused on either proving or disproving allegations of Russian interference.

But I did acknowledge, for example in this radio interview, that there was a risk that in the...
