Irrational Obama-Era Labor Regulations Overturned

Irrational decisions by Obama's National Labor Relations Board, such as striking down a Hooters franchise policy requiring employees to be polite to co-workers and guests, have been overturned by the Trump board.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 'Real' President Trump delivers America a very Merry Christmas, indeed

There’s quite a lot to celebrate this Christmas season. Thankfully Trump isn’t just an “animatronic” figure in a Disney program – he’s a real life president with a popular agenda and the brainpower and determination to follow through on his promises to Make America Great Again.

Coming Soon... 'Trump' Season 2!

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump should seize the moment of his most significant legislative victory to make the proverbial pivot and change that situation for the next season. He should do this by employing his not inconsiderable talents as an actor. He has told us he can act the role of a traditional president, literally at the blink of an eye. Time to do it. This does not mean that Trump should not be Trump.

The Risks and Rewards of Welfare Reform

Michael Tanner, National Review

Welfare reform could be both a political winner and an opportunity to do something tangible to benefit those who need it the most. It is a chance to show that the answer to poverty does not lie in creating new programs or spending more money. It is a chance to rewrite for the better 50 years of failed American public policy.

Trump Voters Winners In First 24 Hours Of Tax Reform

The Fake News media can kvetch about “trickle down” economics all they want, but $1,000 bonuses to Trump voters – frontline workers and managers – and companies announcing $15 an hour minimum wage is a huge political win for President Trump, and a big quality of life win for America’s hard-pressed working families.

New FedUp PAC Poll: FBI Scandal Requires Special Prosecutor

More than 94% of those responding to the latest FedUp PAC poll agree that recent revelations showing that the FBI has a pro-Clinton, pro-Obama, and anti-Trump partisan bias require investigation and that “we cannot trust the FBI to investigate itself.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only Democrats would claim cutting taxes for everyone is a dumb idea

No matter the name, tax cuts are helpful to “real” people out there. Democrats will continue to slam Republicans regardless of what they do; if this tax episode hasn’t taught the GOP they’re engaged in a political fight to the death I’m not sure what it would take to convince them.

Is Trump an Island?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Would Trump let his deeds speak for themselves, he would quiet his enemies far more than he does with Twitter broadsides. In the prior eight years, Obama tried to invent achievement through soaring rhetoric about what he could never do. Trump seems just intent to diminish in tweets all that he has already accomplished in deeds. But no man is an island, and to press on, Trump needs to allow allies of his agenda to become allies of himself.

The Unsilent Coup

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The premise of practically every media story, from the travel ban to the most basic executive appointments, is that it is somehow “controversial” for a duly elected president to use the powers vested in the executive branch. Trump is apparently not to hire or fire anybody, should never tell executive agencies what to do, should take, not give, orders from diplomats and bureaucrats, should submit to all acts of judicial activism, must never criticize Congress, and should in general stop offering any opinions at all.

3 lessons for Trump and Congress from Bill Clinton's impeachment

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Lessons for Trump in how Clinton was acquitted by the Senate and hung on to finish out his term, as well as for congressional Democrats who want to succeed where the 1990s Republican House impeachment managers failed: The White House and its allies will push to investigate the investigators, accusing them of a partisan “witch hunt” — or worse; Partisan impeachments are tough, and, Sex wasn’t considered serious enough to impeach a president over, but Russia might be.

Trump’s biggest enemy isn’t the media — it’s himself

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump has dug himself in a hole with large segments of the American public, and needs to step away from the shovel if he hopes to get out. A year in office, his accomplishments still are being overshadowed by bad habits and unlikable aspects of his personality. Knowing that much of the media is out to get him, he should stop giving them ammunition. Most important, Trump must stop attacking individual Americans on Twitter.

Trump’s National Security Strategy: A Welcome Break From Obama And Bush

Neocons, the congressional war party, and the military – industrial complex will no doubt be ready to criticize President Trump’s national security strategy as a retreat from America’s role in the world – but nothing could be further from the truth.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ impeachment drumbeat will come back to bite them

It seems clear the more Democrats talk about “me too” and impeachment of Donald Trump the more they’re boxing themselves into a corner that will be difficult to emerge from. American voters are sick to death of partisan games – isn’t it about time we started talking about policy again?

Democrat Doug Jones Comes Out In Support Of DACA: Miss Roy Moore Yet?

Whether Doug Jones has an R or a D next to his name in the Senate Directory doesn’t really matter to the Republican establishment that shares Jones’ worldview and policy preferences on issues from DACA and illegal immigration, to the growth of government, to funding Planned Parenthood.

Trump may have stumbled in Alabama, but he's not finished

Chad Groening and Steve Jordahl, OneNewsNow.com

Richard Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ, says the president certainly bears his share of responsibility in the Alabama outcome. "... He weighed in for Senator Luther Strange and should have supported the principled, limited constitutional government candidate Congressman Mo Brooks, a member of the Freedom Caucus," says Viguerie. "And he could have won that easily."

Unlike Nixon, Trump Will Not Go Quietly

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump has Fox News and fighting congressmen behind him and the mainstream media is deeply distrusted and widely detested. And there is no Democratic House to impeach him or Democratic Senate to convict him. Moreover, Trump is not Nixon, who, like Charles I, accepted his fate and let the executioner’s sword fall with dignity. If Trump goes, one imagines, he will not go quietly.

Why Trump Should Consider a Post-Twitter Presidency

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Why should Trump ever consider pruning back his controversial tweets or confining them to the reportage of his daily achievements, in the manner of every other mostly boring politician? Because personal dueling with journalists, celebrities, and politicians is not only becoming superfluous, but it is now distracting Trump’s audiences from a growing record of achievement. Trump has outgrown the Twitter wars. He should now just declare victory, retire as Twitter champ, hang up his tweeting gloves, and leave the slap-down ring for others.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Mitch McConnell will expose the best candidate in every primary

Conservatives cannot let Tuesday night’s defeat in Alabama deter them from identifying and supporting the best candidates in every GOP primary race. Ironically, Mitch McConnell will help in this endeavor – find out who he backs and think strongly about choosing one of his or her opponents.
