Our Elites Don’t See What’s Coming

History shows us that when the ruling class and elites refuse to do what they should and instead do what they can…

Breaking the Administrative State

There can only be one winner in the struggle between the president and the permanent bureaucracy if America has any hope of the republic surviving…

How to Shut Down the Democrats’ Alternative Universe

President Trump needs to be far more serious in his second term about personnel, ensuring the executive branch is filled with staffers working on his administration’s behalf every day…

We Must Ban Human Nature for the Sake of Humanity

I think it’s probably time to accept that there should be bans. Surely, though, guns aren’t the only objects in need of banning. Here are a few modest proposals…

The absurdity of government 'shutdowns'

Here we go again. One more time around on the crazy merry-go-round otherwise known as a broken and dysfunctional Washington, D.C. And as usual, in this game of absurd brinkmanship there are accusations, frustrations, misinformation and political games afoot…

Democrats Have Always Wanted to Impeach Trump

Let’s imagine for a moment a hypothetical situation in which a president shoots someone on the White House lawn. A two-year, $34 million special counsel investigation ensues. As a result of the investigation, the special counsel finds that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the president committed murder…

A Sovereign People Need Data Sovereignty—Now

It’s time the American people woke up and understood what the big tech companies, many of which are now publishers and telecommunications companies masquerading as neutral platforms, are doing with their personal data…

A Precedent for Ending Big Tech’s Monopoly

Tech monopolies came into existence because of gray areas and advantages created in laws and tax regulations. Only laws and regulations can bring them to heel…

When False Gods Ring Hollow

Sadly, but predictably, in the wake of the El Paso and Dayton shootings, many on the Left have resorted yet again to over-the-top rhetoric about gun control, white supremacy, and racism—screaming and pointing the finger at everyone but themselves…

In Defense of Masculinity

The last month has been a whirlwind of allegations and accusations of sexual assault from the heights of Hollywood to the halls of Congress, Big Media, and beyond. Men from all walks of life, political beliefs, and social classes are losing their marriages and livelihoods, not the mention their reputations, due of the assaults and unwanted attention they have perpetrated on women (and in some cases men) in their lives…

Instead of focusing on the past, let’s envision our nation’s brighter future

Our society is in a state of political turmoil, but for some on the left, the problems are deeper than simple disagreements over policy issues. Instead, there are those on the left who are running active campaigns to undermine the founding principles of the nation…

The Obama administration never took tax cuts seriously, but Trump can

With John McCain’s “conscience” apparently deciding that ObamaCare should remain the law of the land, tax reform has become a must if the Republican-led Congress has any hopes of putting legislation on President Trump’s desk before the end of the year…

Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization and must be denounced by Democrats

While the violent misfits of Antifa proudly call themselves anti-fascists – and liken their attacks on anyone they oppose to the heroic fight by resistance forces that battled the Nazis in World War II – in reality Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization…

On North Korea, we must make China accommodate our interests

As we come barreling down to the end of the road on how we confront North Korea, there can be no denying that this situation is very different from other nuclear weapons threats. In fact, the real comparison is to what we face with Iran and the position President Obama put us in with that hostile country. But North Korea is essentially not like any other nation. There are no real economic pressure points with North Korea to use as leverage. The Soviets and the Chinese wanted some kind of integration into the global marketplace; even Iran does…

It's time to build the wall and fix our immigration system

With President Trump likely to undo Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) next week, it highlights yet again that our immigration system is fundamentally broken. Our system of admittance is a decades old program based largely on nepotism and family ties, rather than any logical system of governance that benefits Americans…

The real threat to our republic is the Orwellian Antifa

Over the past few months, we have finally entered the fully realized historical revisionism promised in George Orwell’s “1984,” in which the motto, “Who controls the present controls the past. Who controls the past controls the future,” was central to shaping the book’s dystopian world. In the book, history was continually being rewritten and re-promulgated to meet the political necessities of the moment. There was no history to be remembered, let alone lessons to be learned…

Until we acknowledge the root of the problem, the opioid epidemic will grow

The quiet crisis hitting America’s suburbs is an unusual one, one that most on first blush wouldn’t quite believe if not dismiss. But it is in fact a very real threat and getting more deadly by the day…

Can the GOP stop shooting itself in the foot on health reform?

Having been in Washington for nearly 20 years, watching the Republican healthcare debacle was not unexpected: Republican leadership in D.C. has perfected the fine art of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory whilst shooting itself in both feet…

Americans Need To Know More About Fusion GPS, Stat

For nearly five months, the firm Fusion GPS, hired by Democrats to research and write an “intelligence report” that the most senior members of the Obama administration circulated widely last summer and fall, has been stonewalling a U.S. Senate committee investigation. That “report,” many believe, was the basis for charges of Russian Collusion with the Trump campaign.  So why are they being allowed to stonewall?

Use of Force: An Interview With Brad Thor

I recently caught up with New York Times’ bestseller Brad Thor to discuss his new book, Use of Force , which comes out June 27…

To Deliver Real Senate Rule Changes, Repeal The 17th Amendment

Last week President Trump tweeted that Senate rules for budget bills should be changed. There’s little chance that will happen. But why settle for little changes when we need big-league change? We need to stop playing the game as it has always been played. If we’re to get this country back on track, we need to change the rules of the game…

To Truly Beat The Bureaucrats, Trump Needs To Shut Their Agencies Down

If there is to be real change in our form of government, the Trump administration needs to avoid the fatal flaw of previous Republican administrations: choosing to play the game by the Left’s rules…
