Cleaning House Is Not Enough

Cleaning house of the Obama – McMaster – Tillerson holdovers at State and the NSC isn’t enough.

Fear, loathing and John Bolton

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Bluster is an effective weapon in the hands of someone who knows how to use a weapon. Mr. Bolton, like the president, has never been interested in being polite to the imams in Tehran or to Rocket Man in Pyongyang. He has never been a fan of nation-building, particularly when it means deconstructing the nation and everything about it, from its history, culture, even its religion. He’s not a fan because it can’t be done.

Whether the threats to our nation are physical or economic, overt or political, they will be met head on and in a way that makes it clear that a world without America leadership is a dangerous world and that in a world in which American leadership is reasserted, all people of good faith and good conscience can profit and be more secure.

Why Does President Trump Keep Hiring Anti-Trumpers?

Kirstjen Nielsen, the nominee to replace Gen.

If the Government Cannot Be Trusted, Can It Protect the Nation?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Our supposedly self-determining society never conducted a referendum that officially transformed government from a necessary evil to a guardian angel. But while you weren’t looking, there does seem to have been a dramatic transformation of the Fourth Amendment.

Selective Blindness Or Conspiracy Of Anti-Trump Judges?

Our friend Michael Patrick Leahy has shown that there’s more than willful blindness behind the bizarre rulings against President Trump's Executive Orders on travel from terrorism hotspots. There’s a potential conspiracy involving Democrat holdovers at the Department of Homeland Security, Muslim sympathizers in the media and the shadowy “immigrant rights” groups and Democratic state Attorneys General that have brought the lawsuits to overturn the President’s Executive Order.

The Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution’s Due Process Clause to require judges to act impartially and with the appearance of impartiality.
