Donald Trump

The Rise of the Generals

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Before President Trump proceeds along the path laid out for him by his generals, brave and patriotic men that they are, he should discover if any of them opposed any of the idiotic wars of the last 15 years, beginning with that greatest of strategic blunders—George Bush’s invasion of Iraq.

Trump Voters: What’s Our First Quarter ROI On Our Trump Vote?

Ignoring President Trump’s successes and judging the President’s results strictly by what investments haven’t yet come to maturity is a shortsighted view of the conservative ROI of President Trump’s first 100 days.

Speaker Paul Ryan’s Implosion

Since the election of President Donald Trump the myth of Paul Ryan’s genius has come crashing down to earth because for the first time in his life Ryan has actually had to produce measurable results. And when the results have been compared to the myth Ryan has failed. Spectacularly.

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.

Paul Ryan’s Betrayals Define Trump’s 100 Days

As well-intentioned and committed to his agenda as President Trump may be, he has failed to grasp that Paul Ryan is the author of these failures not because he is an inept Speaker, but because he is on the other side.

‘Science’ Know-It-Alls on the March

William Murchison, The American Spectator

It is impossible, in public discourse, to doubt the reality of climate change. Actually no one doubts a phenomenon proved by dinosaur bones and the cliffs of the Grand Canyon. The argument ought not to be over whether but what to do. A lot? How much? With what tools and weapons, and on what schedule?

Grassley follows the money to find source of ‘dodgy dossier’

Dan Boylan, Washington Times

Grassley is 83 years old and has been in the Senate since 1981. His career in Washington began in 1975 when he served in the House of Representatives. During 42 years in Washington, the Iowan has endured Watergate, the Iran-Contra affair, the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, Valerie Plame and Benghazi. For him, the dossier presented a Washington-style follow-the-money angle that investigators needed to pursue. The real question remains: Who paid Mr. Steele for the material?

Is Trump on Track in His First 100 Days?

Ken Blackwell, CNS News

A few months ago, the usual pundits said a Trump presidency was impossible. But voters had a different idea. Now we have a president who is leading from the front and delivering strong, practical, and conservative government that serves all of us.

Tim Alberta, Politico Magazine

Buchanan has spent decades researching and thinking and writing about the threat he believes recent immigrants pose to America’s identity, and he comes to the subject armed with reams of statistics and arguments grounded in his reading of history. “But this,” Buchanan says, “is the last chance for these ideas.”

Trump vs. Obama: A Study in Contrasts

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

There is at work a machinery of ontological depreciation. It almost doesn't matter what Trump does. The operative policy of the MSM is to meet his actions with hostility where possible, contemptuous negligence where hostility is not advisable.

100 Days: Trump climbs the learning curve

Editors, Washington Examiner

Inexperience and novelty have been defining characteristics of President Trump's first three months in office, both for better and for worse. He has made rookie mistakes and proven malleable, even credulous to bad arguments. But, to good effect, his flexibility has dragged him away from some bad ideas, and there are signs that his could be a sharply pragmatic administration.

Shattered: The Book That Explains The Real Reasons Why Hillary Lost

Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign the just-out book by respected political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes tells the truth about how and why sure winner Hillary Clinton went down to a defeat that still has Washington reeling.

Pence Optimism About Islam And Indonesia Misplaced

Vice President Pence's remarks in Indonesia painted what is at best a misleading picture of the facts on the ground. Let’s hope that behind the scenes the Vice President and President Trump’s national security team know what’s really going on in the world’s most populous Muslim country.
