Outsider Mike Braun Makes Trade Issue In Indiana’s GOP Senate Primary

Conservative Republican and U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun may be the first GOP senate candidate to embrace President Trump’s trade policies as a campaign issue in a Republican Primary by attacking his opponents in a new ad titled "Made in America."

Hillary Clinton And Our Hypersonic Missile Gap With Russia

Russia's hypersonic missile program was born at Skolkovo a vast Russian industrial espionage program with its genesis at the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, and Russian oligarch Vekselberg. It is driven by donors to the Clinton Foundation and was championed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Are We Losing The Middle East War To Iran?

If our goal is to block Iran’s aspirations in Syria, but neither the United States nor Israel has been able to stop the proliferation of Iranian bases in Syria, then it looks to us like we, and the Israelis, are losing. The question for Gen. Votel and other commanders then becomes, if we are presently losing, what’s it going to take to win?

CIDs Dangerous Anti-Fourth Amendment Weapons of the Administrative State

Civil Investigative Demands have become weapons of the administrative state. They have even exceeded their New Deal origins, and have become perhaps the most dangerous institutionalized violation of the Bill of Rights.

The Real Russian Disaster

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The verdict on Russia, the Obama administration, and the Clinton campaign is now becoming clearer. At very little cost, Russia has embarrassed American democracy, played the media for the partisans they are, completely discredited the Clinton campaign and name, and created a year of nonstop hysteria to undermine the Trump administration. And it is not over yet.

Trump and Obama: Who's really tougher on Russia?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

There are Republicans who would like to see the Trump administration be tougher still on Russia. Long before the 2016 election, they urged Bush and Obama to take a harder line against Putin. There is still much that President Trump could do. But when it comes to comparing Trump and Obama, those Republicans ask that Americans look at the whole picture, and not just a fight over Facebook ads.

The Paradoxes of the Mueller Investigation

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Investigating any possible crimes committed by members of the Clinton campaign or the Obama administration apparently is taboo, given the exalted status of both. But every time Mueller seeks to find incidental wrongdoing by those around Trump, he only makes the case stronger that behavior by those involved in the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration should be investigated.

Fighting Russian Interference In American Politics

It shouldn’t take a Special Counsel investigation to identify and expose Russian activities we know have been going on for a century.  It is time for America to get back in the counterintelligence fight by cleaning house and getting rid of incompetent counterintelligence operatives such as the FBI's Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it is time for Congress, as it did with the HUAC investigations, to plumb the full depth of Russian efforts to sow discord in our country.

Obama’s real debt and deficit legacy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Mr. Obama’s failed presidency is being falsely lionized as a deficit cutter. The new spin from the left is that Mr. Obama saved the U.S. from a second great depression, when in fact he gave America the weakest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression. He also left Mr. Trump with an economy that was crawling at 1.6 percent— which is why many people thought we were headed to another recession. No one thinks that today.

Is It Time To Shut Down The FBI?

It's time for radical change at the Department of Justice where Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been hobbled by careerist underlings, such as FBI Director Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who have worked harder at protecting their fellow careerists and their institutional turf than they have worked at protecting the American people.

Investigating The Messenger #HeadsMustRoll

Instead of looking into whether one of the highest-ranking officials in the United States government had been compromised by a foreign power, the Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice decided to investigate the messenger, a political small fry with no power to affect policy or, for example, approve selling 20 percent of America’s uranium to the Russians.

Hillary’s Attempt to Steele the Election

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The intensity of the media’s attacks on a Republican is always in proportion to the degree to which he is impeding one of its causes. The doggedness of Nunes — his refusal to let a politicized FBI and Justice Department stonewall his committee — has thrown considerable light on the real scandal of 2016: not that Trump colluded with the Russians to win but that the Obama administration colluded with Hillary to defeat him.

The FISA-Gate Boomerangs

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What seems clear is that the present hysteria about the Trump administration was already deeply seeded in the federal government throughout the 2016 campaign and the 2016–17 transition. A number of powerful Obama officials thought they had both moral right and the administrative means to nullify Trump. And they were not shy in breaking the law to exercise them.

#HeadsMustRoll Why There Must Be A Special Counsel To Investigate FISA Abuse

The Steele criminal referral we reported on last week in essence asks the FBI to investigate a source with whom FBI officials collaborated, and whose evidence they used in a fashion that’s under congressional investigation. The referral reveals the deep conflicts of interest of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others who signed the questionable wiretap applications using the Steele dossier.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Twenty-First Century Patriot

There are few patriots in Washington who will stand in the breach and take the pressure, smears and abuse that Devin Nunes has suffered since he resolved to make public the memo about Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice attempts to undermine Donald Trump. All liberty loving Americans of whatever political stripe owe him a debt of gratitude for his patriotism, perseverance and integrity.

FISA Memo Released FBI Assistant Director Resigns

The FBI Director himself read the memo on Sunday night, and HPSCI staffers met with FBI agents on Monday to further discuss its contents. After the memo was released to the FBI Director, FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe abruptly resigned. However, it may not have been the FISA memo alone that gave McCabe the push out the door.
