VP Pence’s Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers Is Our New Hero

Vice President Pence's Chief of Staff Nick Ayers told a group of major donors to the RNC they should call members of Congress and tell them if they don't pass Trump's agenda "we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

As Predicted, Supreme Court Kicks Can on Trump’s So-called Travel Ban

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Trump’s newly issued travel ban is carefully enough crafted that it will be very difficult to challenge on grounds of anti-Muslim bias. Consequently, the Supreme Court and the president may both get what they want: the former, avoidance of difficult, divisive issue; the latter, something he can claim as a win. The theater over the “travel bans,” which will continue for a while longer, has been a waste of time.

Was Rep. Clay Higgins Right About Islam's War Against America?

Louisiana's Congressman Clay Higgins started a firestorm amongst the politically correct establishment when he posted on Facebook "The free world... all of Christendom... is at war with Islamic horror.

The Travel Ban Is about Vetting — Which Means It’s about Islam

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

That is what we have to vet for. That is what the majority of the American people want: Muslims who embrace our way of life invited in, Muslims who threaten our way of life kept out. You can’t get there without subjecting Muslim aliens to more-extensive inspection. We will never get there by denying that Islam is the heart of the matter.

Byron York, Washington Examiner

When the case eventually goes to a trial court, Washington State plans extensive discovery into the president's state of mind when the order was issued, as well as the state of mind of key presidential advisers. Washington State lawyers told the 9th Circuit they intend to find out what was "said in private" about the executive order, which suggests state lawyers will seek to depose and obtain documents from the president and his inner circle.

The Travel Ban Firestorm

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

But by whatever slurs they are called, Middle Americans seem prepared to fight. And history shows that such people do not calmly accept the loss of what is most precious to them—the country they grew up in, the country they love. They have turned to Trump to lead them. Why should he not, having been raised up by them, and knowing in his own heart what the establishment and the media think of him and would do to him?

Obama's Big Ebola Wager

Scott McConnell, American Conservative

The main job of Ebola "tsar" Ron Klain should be to save the White House from its own political tone-deafness. If Americans die because West Africans are allowed to continue flying here legally during the heat of the crisis, Obama’s presidency will be toast.
