Schumer's Criticism of Hillary Is Worse Than It Seems

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Chuck Schumer's promising better jobs for higher pay. Does that mean everyone's going to work for the government, because that's the only way he could guarantee that (and even then)? We all know where that leads. If that's the best he can come up with, the Democrats are in worse shape than I thought.

Pelosi and Schumer make a play for the Beltway lobbyist vote

James Freeman, Wall Street Journal

Mr. Schumer’s likely finding that his party’s continuing emphasis on government intervention in the economy sings to today’s audience of special interest rule-writers. It seems that the Democrats' new rebranding campaign may be useful, except in many of the places where Democrats need to win.

Schumer's effort to cripple Trump

Editors, Washington Examiner

Trump has not shown sufficient interest in good government, in hiring staff sufficient in number and competence, and in keeping politics out of places where it's not supposed to go.

Schumer's Special Prosecutor Proposal for Russia Lacks 'Fairness'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

I support Senators Schumer and Warner in their quest to make the DOJ appoint a special counsel on this matter before a new FBI director is confirmed by the Senate... except for one thing.

Shut The Chuck Up

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Schumer’s antics open a window into something else that ought to be obvious to all, which is this: If your beliefs are solely driven by opposition to people you hate, your rationality and logic — and shortly thereafter, your credibility — will suffer horribly for it. Schumer’s constituents might not get that. The rest of the country will. If this is the best he can do, he’ll be the leader of an even smaller Senate minority after the next election.

Tax Reduction and Reform: President Trump Goes After The Swamp

Reducing the tax burden on businesses will encourage long-term investment, make them more competitive and help get our economy growing and creating private sector jobs. This is the tax plan that the American people supported when they elected President Trump, so Speaker Ryan and House Republicans would do well to give it their full support.

Conservatives Want A 'No Excuses Budget' From The GOP Congress

We urge our conservative friends and readers to call their Representatives and Senators (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand funding of the border wall in the soon-to-be-passed continuing resolution. Tell them no excuses; no border wall funding – means a no vote.
