Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, celebrated its 40th anniversary and the retirement of founder Dr. Beverly LaHaye at a Gala headlined by Vice President Mike Pence. "With the retirement of Mrs. Beverly LaHaye, who has served God faithfully, we’re marking the passing of the baton on the firm foundation from which she built this organization,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President.

In a sober, frank, open and honest discussion of Rep. Denver Riggelman's voting record the Rappahannock County Republican Committee voted to censure the freshman GOP Representative for voting to undermine President Trump’s program of "American jobs for American workers" and undermining Trump’s pledge to stay out of other countries’ civil wars and to refrain from military commitments not clearly tied to our own national security.

One can’t necessarily blame Mark Sanford for challenging Trump in the 2020 GOP primaries, but it’s open to debate whether it’s a net positive or just a fool’s errand. The “conversation” regarding debt and spending needs to take place either way -- and who’s to say Sanford should lead it?

Based on the results of recent polls, racist pandering is getting Beto and Mayor Pete exactly nowhere. But lack of measurable impact didn’t drive the candidates away from talking about issues no one cares about and pushing policies no one wants and that was ultimately the overarching theme of last night’s Democrat debate.

As we said in our 2017 column, General Mike Flynn’s Only Crime, Flynn’s only crime was being a truth-teller about Obama’s failures. We urge Judge Sullivan to grant attorney Sidney Powell’s motion on behalf of General Mike Flynn, to expose the conspiracy against him and President Trump and, for the government’s egregious conduct in the matter, to dismiss the entire case against General Flynn.

Democrats have a heck of a lot of work -- and soul-searching -- to do before settling on a nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s general election. The confusion and indecision on display in Houston won’t clarify the hard choices for the party’s voters -- if anything, it’s more wide open than ever for America’s liberals.

When this month’s Limbaugh Letter came out detailing Rush’s views on how President Trump has been branding the Democrats and it read like Rush and President Trump had read Mr. Viguerie’s memos and The Secret To A Trump Landslide. As Rush put it: It’s a marketing miracle!

Many of our conservative friends will recognize Helen Blackwell as the wife and tireless helpmate of Leadership Institute founder Morton Blackwell, but Mrs. Blackwell was also a tireless champion for her principles and a conservative leader in her own right.

Americans will be watching closely as the somewhat winnowed Democrat field gathers tonight in Houston for their third debate of the 2020 nominating cycle. After the program we’ll know a lot more about Joe Biden and his ability to sustain himself for the long haul -- of if he’ll merely reprise his role as the incredible shrinking man.

In today’s “woke” political climate cops are now the enemies, politicians who hate those they aspire to govern are heroes and Muslims who despise America are media darlings. That means it is up to us to make sure the most important lessons of 9/11 have not been forgotten.

Over the next few days much will be written about West Wing power struggles, but in the end, being right about Taliban perfidy and being out of sync with President Trump’s laudable, but impractical goal of making peace with them, is undoubtedly what got John Bolton fired.

Similar to December 7, 1941, September 11, 2001 will live as a day in infamy for folks who vividly remember the attack and its aftermath. The nineteen terrorists will have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams if Americans allow fear to tear our country apart. We can’t let them.

    If it ever was, “Nobody is coming for your guns!” is no longer true — which means that a host of commonly posed inquiries now have the same simple answer. “Why do you oppose federal licensing?” Because leading Democrats are threatening confiscation. “Why do you oppose ‘universal’ background checks?” Because they would create a registry. “And why do you oppose a registry?” Because leading Democrats are threatening confiscation. Unwittingly or not, O’Rourke and his acolytes have stuck a dagger into the exquisitely calibrated gun-control messaging on which their party has worked for the better part of 20 years. No voter can now say he wasn’t warned.

    The latest fad on the left is the push to eliminate the Electoral College. We can’t take our stability for granted. The Electoral College, which safeguards our federalist system, plays a significant part in the United States’ durability. We are one nation, yes, but one nation in which the voices of all states are heard. Trying to rule a continent-sized country in a unitary system would lead to disaster or dictatorship. We shouldn’t risk our republic because some sore losers want to overhaul the entire political system every time they don’t get their way, like spiteful children who have lost a game of tag.

    Doing undercover investigative journalism gets you flak when you effectively and devastatingly expose something. When you do investigative reporting, somebody gets hurt. But what must never be forgotten is that the results will ultimately benefit society. In a democracy, the people’s right to know is necessary if they are to make informed decisions. The new sacred cows are media and big tech. The plan, to investigate them. Because sacred cows like every other institution, need to be held accountable. Now is the time to act. And that’s why, at Project Veritas, 10 years later, the best is yet to come.

    Let her go. Not because it would be to our side’s political advantage, because it isn’t.  She hurts the climate change scam here in the US of A. The Europeans are the Fredos/Chris Cuomos of Western civilization, weak and stupid, and they eagerly lap up this kind of nonsense. But the vast majority of Americans have too much common sense to allow their country’s energy policy to be dictated by a teenaged girl’s obsessions. Let her go, because this is terribly destructive to a child who is only trying to please those who she mistakenly believes have her best interests in mind. Free Greta, you monsters.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    What Mattis is saying is that Trump’s goal of extracting us from the “forever war” entails too great a risk, and U.S. troops in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan will have to soldier on, indefinitely. North Korea continues to test missiles that may not be able to hit the U.S. homeland, but they could hit U.S. troops and bases in South Korea and Japan. If, by 2020, Kim Jong Un still refuses to give up his nuclear weapons, Iran is back to enriching uranium, the Taliban atrocities continue unabated, and U.S. troops remain in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan in the same numbers they are today, what does Trump do? What does Trump say?

  • Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

    “On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil-fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands. And I will ban fracking — everywhere,” Warren tweeted. The rest of the Democratic hopefuls will follow suit, with the possible exceptions of Joe Biden and Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan. Donald Trump won Pennsylvania with just over 40,000 votes in 2016. Jobs postings are everywhere touting opportunities, no matter the skill level. If you reliably turn up for work, there is likely a career for you in the oil and gas industry. Do the Democrats care?

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    At the Democratic Party's first one-night presidential debate, what role did the nation's widespread economic anxieties play? Almost none. The word "recession" was uttered just once in the entire debate. (By Julian Castro, who noted the poll's finding of recession fears.) Nor was the word "unemployment" ever spoken. Nor was there a discussion of job creation. Nor was there much of a discussion of wages. On the government side, no one, moderator or candidate, said the word "deficit." No one discussed the mismatch between the federal government's revenues and its spending. No one talked about the national debt.

  • Daniel Oliver, The Candid American

    Global warming has nothing on the pollution of the ubiquitous charges of racism rising to the skies from the left-wing fever swamps. Everything now is racism, especially to the New York Times. How dull. Are some hospital staff members racists? Almost certainly—original sin not yet having been abolished—but the persistence of original sin is not usually the stuff of Times op-eds. The question is, are we going to sacrifice the welfare of children in order to avoid being called racists by the PC-racism police? Instead of asking the tough questions, it’s easier just to bang the racial injustice drum. How dull.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    It wasn’t racist rednecks or people who wallow in “white privilege" who voted. They weren’t the “suits” from Mecklenburg County who voted for Dan McCready on their way to play with pivot tables in Charlotte office buildings. The voters who elected Dan Bishop to the House of Representatives are the people who actually work for a living in places like Cumberland, Richmond, and Robeson counties. They are by no means all white, and they remember all too well what it was like during the Obama years and how it felt to go hat in hand to the unemployment office. That should frighten the Democrats badly.

  • Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

    Things are obviously out of control — if you’re a Trump-hater. They all know none of them will be the nominee, which means only one thing: They’re doing this with the intention of damaging the president in the lead-up to the general election. They want the Democrat to win. That seems a strange goal for “Republicans” considering the Democrats now represent socialism, infanticide, open borders, gun confiscation and government-run “health care,” which is really death care. Perhaps they’re acolytes of talk-show host Bill Maher who openly admits he wishes for another recession if it would get rid of Mr. Trump.

    (If I were a Democrat I'd be embarrassed. Andrew Yang is at least good for some laughs.). Warren is the only one who has run a campaign that is even slightly effective. And it's showing. That's good news for her, but dangerous for the rest of us. Unlike the others, Warren is just possibly savvy enough to win the general. Republicans may think the phony Pocahontas nonsense was enough to do her in, but that's so 2017 (the Paleolithic Age in terms of our politics) and about as likely to sink Warren at this point as Stormy Daniels is likely to sink Trump. These things have already long been baked into our political cake.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    In some years, the images and memories are faded, as if from long, long ago. Other years, the horrors feel as fresh as when the burning towers collapsed. Yet few anniversaries of 9/11 have been as fraught with troubling emotions as today’s. From the vantage point of the 18th anniversary, it is unfortunately true that the worst day in American history forged the last great moment of national unity. The mourning and sense of common purpose that were so distinct then seem as if they happened in a different country in another century. Now our nation is not just polarized. It is fractured.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    President Trump has real reason to worry about losing in the general election. In the RealClearPolitics average of polls, his job approval rating stands at 43.0%, against a 53.9% disapproval rating. Even though Trump won in 2016 with a high personal disapproval rating, there's no assurance the states that gave him the election by narrow margins last time — Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin — will go for him again next year. But a Trump defeat would be the result of Trump himself, and not his GOP opponents. Separately or as a whole, today's challengers are simply not on the level of the Kennedys, Reagan, or Buchanan.

    What to do about Afghanistan? Trump wants to leave but Bolton wants to stay. Horrid as Afghanistan may be — and a culture much of which still treats women like chattel and young boys like concubines in 2019, not to mention subsisting on the production of opium poppies, is pretty horrid indeed — there is little we can do about it. Enough of our young people have been killed or wounded, enough of our treasure spent. Basta! Let's get out, intelligently obviously (i. e. not like Vietnam). And we have plenty to do back home. Now that Bernie Sanders is allying with Linda Sarsour, we have to prevent America from turning into Afghanistan.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    Mr. Trump never tries to be something he is not. He is always focused on selling himself as the consistent same product wherever he is. The conversations he has with people in private are pretty much the exact same conversations he has with people in public. Mr. Trump cherishes the opportunity to speak the hard truth, even when people don’t want to hear it. It’s why so many people cringe over his “impolitic” comments. President Trump’s purposeful foray into the politics of football may have cost him some momentary cheers there in North Carolina. But it reminded everyone how much he loves to win and what a “stable genius” he is.
