The Iranians have now made a point of showing the British and the world that they have the same capabilities as the old imperial power, and that they were not afraid to use them. Based on their own diminished capabilities, the British have few good alternatives short of outright capitulation, meaning any military response to the hijacking of their ship would, perforce, involve the United States.

Ending the tax on inflation is a critical step forward in reducing unfairness in the tax code. It provides for “bracket creep,” which drives Americans into higher tax brackets with inflated wages which are not actually increasing real buying power. It is damaging to families, farmers, homeowners, businesses, and Americans who save for their retirement.

Among the multitude of problems the establishment media chooses to ignore is the border patrol’s inability to adequately control drug and human smuggling due to lack of manpower and resources. Rather than report facts, media members sensationalize “Send her Back!” chants. Who loses here?

50 years ago, on July 19 or 20, Mary Jo Kopechne died in a submerged car.

Swamp, being hailed by fellow Democrats as “the lion of the Senate.”

President Trump has an instinctive feel for the inflection points in today’s political and cultural battles, but personnel is policy, and Attorney General Barr is only one man; he needs a cadre of victory-minded conservative lawyers to handle the day-to-day legal work upon which victory or defeat of the Trump agenda hinges.

The fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing represents both a testament to human ingenuity and a challenge to resurrect the spirit that allowed us to reach for the stars.

Being an “American” requires more than simply being born here or otherwise qualifying for United States citizenship – it requires allegiance to a certain and quite definite set of principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Representative Omar and her posse all took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, but we see no evidence that they and their media defenders actually hold any allegiance to its principles.

Americans might justifiably ask what does the hijacking of a Panamanian-flagged vessel operating out of the UAE and the British seizure of an Iranian vessel operating in violation of international sanctions have to do with us? The answer is that President Trump has approved an operation in which U.S. warships act as sentinels at the entrance to the Persian Gulf.

Whether or not Hillary Clinton eventually decides to enter the 2020 presidential race, Joe Biden’s fate depends on how long he maintains the appearance of viability. Once Democrat voters see through the former Obama VP’s ruse the end will come quickly. Will Hillary then pick up the pieces?

Radical feminists and Far Left Democrats are trying to revive the ERA without going back to Congress and passing a new proposed constitutional amendment. Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier (CA-14) has introduced H.J.Res.38 in an attempt to bypass the biggest constitutional roadblock to the ERA’s revival; its failure to meet the 1982 extended deadline.

With federal spending reaching record levels, the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project released the following memo to Congress regarding a rumored deal to break the existing spending caps and drive the deficit even higher.

President Trump’s battle against the Washington elites is just getting started, and if the ruling class gets its way, he’ll not only lose the fight, he’ll be shamed and drummed out of town. Paul Ryan is relieved to be away from it all -- here’s hoping more establishmentarians follow him into retirement.

    The left is desperate to smear Republicans and moderate Democrats as racists. Part of this desperation is in the left’s inability to debate the facts and their hope that strong smears can shame their opponents out of broaching the argument. Part of this desperation is in the left’s growing realization that President Trump and the Republicans are beginning to attract minority support in a serious way. If Republicans successfully answer the racist attack and then prove that the Democrats have become the party of radical proposals that would destroy America as we know it, then the Democrats could find themselves losing everywhere except on college campuses and in some radical neighborhoods.

    The New York Times — that Democratic Party house organ that fancies itself "liberal" or "progressive" or some such — is actually one of the more reactionary institutions in our country. Sometimes you have to wonder if it might actually be an American version of Izvestia. Speaking of which, in honor of the fifty-year anniversary of the USA putting a man on the moon, the once-upon-a-time newspaper of record produced this ridiculous nonsense under the rubric "How the Soviets Won the Space Race for Equality." Ah, diversity — the new religion. As long as they can put a "person of color" — also, of course, mentioned in the article — or from the proletariat in space, everything else is excused.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    We might say “Kill the umpire,” but we don’t actually want the umpire killed. We shouldn’t need to explain that because everyone understands it. The exercise of our right to scream “Kill the umpire” does not create a clear and present danger to umpires. For 60 years I’ve heard crowds say nutty things at carnival-type venues; on the other hand, I’ve also prosecuted people for inciting terrorist attacks against the United States. There is a palpable difference between provocative expression and incitement to violence, one that is not hard for sensible people to discern, even if great legal minds have struggled to articulate it precisely.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    This week President Donald Trump is sending 500 additional U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia. In this new century, leaders of both parties have plunged our country into at least five wars in the Middle and Near East. None of these wars has produced a victory or success for us. But taken together, they did produce a multitrillion-dollar strategic and human rights disaster. Meanwhile, China gained much from having its great rival thrashing about ineffectually in the forever wars of the Middle East. "Great nations do no fight endless wars," said Trump. Yes, they do. As the British, French, Germans, Japanese and Russians showed in the last century, that is how they cease to be great nations.

    Democrats are like poor people, trying to rig the lottery that need to convince others of their altruism. Free healthcare for all, regardless of nationality or legal status! Free education for anyone – and retroactively! But the old adage that “freedom isn’t free” is true in reverse. Free stuff isn’t freedom; it’s the opposite. Ignorance is running rampant in our schools, in our culture, in the media and in the ranks of the progressive left. Government schools teach that only government can provide the answers to all our woes. It cannot. But government – and those who support policies that seek its continual expansion – will certainly try to convince us it can.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    If these freaks ever got power it will be open season on your ability to participate in our society and our government. After all, you’re a racist Jesus-loving/observant Jew NRA monster of greed and privilege and hatred and you deserve no rights. Your (alleged) rights are an obstacle to the fundamental transformation of America into Venezuela that they seek. In other words, your rights are expendable. What would be the agenda if the Commie Coven took over? Job One would be securing their own power, meaning eliminating yours. What would they call this brand-new USA? I don’t know…probably something along the lines of the People's Republic of North America.

    Mr. Pruden was nothing if not always a bit genteel — with a glint in his eye, of course. That was what separated Mr. Pruden from other great newspapermen, such as the great Westbrook Pegler, President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s tormenter. When Pegler got wound up about something, he would lose all manners to the point he seemed to forget his toilet training. Not Mr. Pruden. Every dish of vitriol included a dollop of manners. Not just because Mr. Pruden was a mannerly gentleman in a proper straw fedora, but also because the dash of manners made the vitriol all the more effective. In 1991, Mr. Pruden was awarded the H.L. Mencken prize for capturing “the fire and spirit” of the famous “sage of Baltimore.” They were certainly of the same old breed.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    The headline of the House vote on a resolution to impeach President Trump was that lawmakers rejected it by an overwhelming 332-95 margin. If 40% of Democrats are ready to impeach the president before considering any resolution on Russia, obstruction, campaign finance, or anything else, Wednesday's vote suggests that Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has argued that impeachment could backfire on Democrats politically, might have an uphill battle holding off impeachment on a more serious resolution. Wednesday's vote was a warning, both to the president and the speaker. It showed that any real impeachment effort will begin with 95 votes in the House. The Democrats who are dead-set on impeaching the president are already well on their way.

  • Rachel Bovard, The Daily Wire

    Planned Parenthood is finally giving up its long-running charade as a women’s health organization and is admitting that it is merely a for-profit abortion advocacy group. The organization publicly dismissed its president over “philosophical differences.” Those differences, according to a letter posted by the ousted head, Dr. Leana Wen, stem from the fact that Wen apparently thought she was working for a women’s healthcare organization that also performed abortions — rather than an abortion advocacy organization with an overtly political agenda. The Democrats and their allies are no longer hiding behind a veil of moderation when it comes to abortion. At least they’re finally being honest with voters about it.

  • David P. Goldman, PJ Media

    It's not about trolling. It's about principle. President Trump has a gift for asking the obvious questions that the elites avoid, for example: What idiot let Omar into the United States in the first place? Come to think of it, why should we admit immigrants who hate us and hate everything we stand for? I believe that new Americans are as good as old Americans, and sometimes better, if they become Americans with a passion for our principles and love for what we represent. But we are under no obligation to open our national home to our enemies. The liberal globalist idea that we need to bow, scrape and apologize to every foreigner with a grudge against us rankles the American people.

  • Ned Ryun, American Greatness

    The Democrats have chosen or, perhaps one could argue, were actually compelled by the grassroots, to embrace the communist vipers. Problem is these movements, as history shows us with the Jacobins of the French Revolution, become all consuming fires, many times annihilating those who started the conflagration. Just ask Robspierre. Nancy Pelosi and the establishment allowed, even embraced the toxic identity politics that Ocasio-Cortez now champions and uses as a flamethrower against all who oppose her. Combine the reality of that with the fact that Trump is succeeding in making Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Pressley, and Tlaib the face of the Democratic Party, and this is a win-win for Trump just over a year out from the 2020 elections.

  • Marc Thiessen, New York Post

    Democrats didn’t think this way when they held the White House. President Barack Obama deported far more illegal immigrants than Trump has. ­Axios reports that “under the Obama administration, total ICE deportations were above 385,000 each year in fiscal years 2009 to 2011 and hit a high of 409,849 in fiscal 2012.” I don’t recall Democrats in Congress accusing Obama of a “crime against humanity” or actions “outside the circle of civilized human behavior.” Back then, Democrats agreed, as Sen. Charles Schumer put it in a 2009 speech, that “illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.” Since Trump took office, Democrats have become the party of illegal immigration.

    There is only one way at this point to end or diminish racism and that is to shut up about it. Otherwise, what you really want, whether you admit it or not, is to perpetuate racism for your own advantage—like Al Sharpton (and many others, obviously, some of whom want desperately to be in the White House). I doubt Cory Booker would approve. 'The Squad" would doubtless go apoplectic. Nevertheless, it's the only way to end racism—stop talking about it. We already have laws against it, for a long time now, as we should. And they should be strictly enforced. But the rest of the blah-blah has got to go. It only makes people hate each other. It creates racism rather than solves it.

  • William Murchison, The American Spectator

    It would be nice to get back to the central point here, which is that the Green New Deal — outlined by whites, blacks, who cares, really? — is nonsense and merits utter rejection. We can’t afford it. We can’t tolerate it, never mind the size of the Bernie Sanders Fan Club. The reported vogue for socialism on the part of the young needs squelching — not by force (the tool of the Left) but by rational persuasion. Trump, master operator as he conceives himself, plans to squash the ultra-left Democratic presidential ticket he hopes will result from embarrassing party moderates into alliance with Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Might work. But if not, what then?

  • Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

    For those of us who are former political organizers, what the president was doing was clear: Provoking the Democrats into again embracing and defending women whom swing voters find toxic due to their agenda and attitudes. And they’re doing just that. Trump's approval rating among Republicans is now at 93 percent and the GOP’s approval rating among Americans is at 51 percent. The good news is the American people will have the final word on all of this next year. And one of the Democratic presidential candidates had better quickly emerge as a genuine party leader with the power and influence to shift the direction of their party, which right now according to my GPS, is headed for the cliff.
