Alabama Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore is the real deal. A Bible-believing Christian and a constitutional originalist who lives the values he campaigns on and will not be intimidated or bought by the Washington establishment.

Shak Hill in VA-10 and State Representative Barry Moore in AL-2 are getting the attention of conservative handicappers in their campaigns against establishment congressional incumbents and we look forward to more principled limited government constitutional conservative candidates taking the fight to other “white flag” incumbents in other House districts.

There are many factors beyond the president’s control in pushing policy changes and improvements. Eliminating the White House staff controversies will help move things along but the entirety of the Republican Party must get onboard if Trump is to Make America Great Again.

Call the White House today at 202-456-1111 or contact President Trump through Twitter at @realDonaldTrump or @POTUS and tell him Steve Bannon's continued service is essential to keep the winning Trump coalition together.

With all the talk of replacing Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader, we may see a changed man once the Senate reconvenes. President Trump deserves a lot of credit for injecting some of the unpredictability back into politics – and the establishment should take notice.

No one knows what President Trump believes about the Koreas. He has made many contradictory comments while Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been talking up the likelihood of war.

It is bizarre that Virginia’s Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville city officials Mayor Mike Signer, Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy and Police Chief Al Thomas Jr. had tools to stop the riot and didn't use them.

More than 97% of self-identified conservatives said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”

Exploring the unfettered truth about American history and its uneven racial past is the only way to achieve real understanding today. It certainly won’t be realized by listening to the establishment media prattle on about how racist and “deplorable” Trump supporters are alleged to be.

Erasing Robert E. Lee from history – or celebrating him as a symbol of “white nationalism” – is a grave error because it erases one of the greatest symbols of the social compact that reunited the country after the bloodshed and hatred of the Civil War.

CIA consultants Bruce Jessen and James Mitchell are being sued by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of two men who were captured and detained by the CIA and the family of a third who died of hypothermia while in custody.

The old saying goes “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” Perhaps conservatives should purchase a few hundred pooches and have them delivered to the capitol. If the ruling class needs “friends” so badly then maybe they should look somewhere outside of politics to find them.

    Censoring speech, religion, and traditions is the mark of a totalitarian society, not a democratic one. But as Tocqueville instructed, there are times when the passion for equality in democratic nations turns to "delirium," and when that appetite is abetted by administrative centralization, it inexorably leads to despotism. That is the conversation we should be having.

  • Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

    American leftists have decided if you are not with them, you are evil and worth silencing. They will allow no alternative opinions and they will allow no dissent. They will not even allow people the courtesy of neutrality. So the average American will probably give them an electoral middle finger, deservedly so.

  • Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

    Members of the national media are disputing President Trump's decision to blame the "alt-left" for engaging in acts of violence, and many say there is no such thing even though the term has been used for months. The so-called "alt-right" is a term for a loosely defined nationalist movement. Neither the "alt-right" nor the "alt-left" originated with Trump but people on both sides use both terms.

    The best outcome would be to defuse the issue, and hope that people can walk away from it and get back to the business of getting an education and making a living. Nothing will console Southerners for their defeat in the Civil War; nothing will compensate African-Americans for hundreds of lost years. The best anyone can do is to find a way to live with it and get on with life.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    There are no modern-day progressive muckrakers in the spirit of Upton Sinclair, Frank Norris, and Lincoln Steffens, warning of the dangers of techie monopolies or the astronomical accumulation of wealth. Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook are worth nearly $1 trillion each. Hip billionaire corporatism is one of the strangest progressive hypocrisies of our times.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    The coercive demand for purity, enforced by violence, often feels staged for political effect aimed at Trump. The surge of sensitivity seems especially odd given that the issue was not as prominent during the tenure of Barack Obama, America’s only black president.

  • Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

    This is a sad yet comical metaphor for the left’s view about civility. Polite yet pugnacious former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was featured on CNN’s Chris Cuomo show Monday to discuss Charlottesville. With him as counterpoint was former Bernie Sanders press secretary Symone Sanders, who in 2016 said, "[W]e don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now." Both guests told the other to "shut up," yet only Cuccinelli was asked to apologize.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    The self-appointed ruling class is overflowing with egomaniacs and heartless operators who, oblivious to the irony of their own pouting, decry Trump’s “ego” and question his “heart.” Has America ever had to endure a more insufferable collection of frauds? When not sating themselves at Margaret Sanger award galas and Black Lives Matters powwows, they can be heard lecturing Americans on “racial healing” and a culture without violence.

  • Michelle Malkin, Real Clear Politics

    Silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum. Never mind that of the four people arrested after the violent outbreak in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, two were identified with the white nationalist movement and the other two were left-wing "antifa" counterprotesters.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    In some sense, Trump has never squared the circle of proclaiming that he wanted to punish our enemies while also staying out of the business of others. Being dedicated to both agendas is a hard thing to do — a dilemma that explains why conservative foreign-policy labels mean little if anything these days.

  • Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

    The question is what sort of identity politics and tribalism we will have. Will we be a patchwork of different cultures and organic "tribes" all proud of and defined by an identity rooted in organically evolved custom, belief, and practice? Or will it be the ersatz and ugly identity politics we saw by torchlight in Charlottesville over the weekend? When a smaller, more organic, more local identity is absent, a more manufactured identity takes its place. And that's when things are guaranteed to get ugly.

  • Daniel Oliver, Newsmax

    It’s not too late to correct the false impression made by the plaque that bears Lazarus' lines, not too late to put up a new plaque (even if we let the old one remain) that will teach Americans here, and would-be Americans everywhere, that America is a land of opportunity. But the opportunity is for the brave and resourceful: to rise early, work hard, and trust in Providence.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Our new America is to be a land where all races, tribes, creeds and cultures congregate, all are treated equally, and all move ever closer to an equality of results through the regular redistribution of opportunity, wealth and power. We are going to become “the first universal nation.” “All men are created equal” is an ideological statement. Where is the scientific or historic proof for it? Are we building our utopia on a sandpile of ideology and hope?

  • Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner

    Although Bannon has previously found himself at the center of internal power struggles over access and influence in the West Wing, people familiar with the situation say Bannon currently faces what could be the most serious challenge to his role so far thanks to Kelly's preference for McMaster and to the recent ouster of his closest internal ally, former chief of staff Reince Priebus.

  • William Murchison, The American Spectator

    As a culture we’ve been going wacko for half a century, claiming the right to put individual perceptions, individual notions and aims and crochets, individual ways of seeing things, ahead of other people’s ways of seeing things. “We’re right and you’re wrong” is the motif of these times.
