Fake News Kills

Last week, we learned the only thing more contagious than COVID-19 is fake news. The mainstream media is desperate to turn the coronavirus scare into President Donald Trump’s Hurricane Katrina. What does that mean? It means they’re motivated to overhype this story simply so they can pile as much pressure as possible onto the president.

Coronavirus, Moral Knowledge And Social Distancing

We must each act upon the moral knowledge that we have an individual responsibility to help prevent the spread of this new disease. What has happened in Italy shows that less-than-urgent appeals to the public by the government to slightly change habits regarding social interactions aren’t enough when the terrible outcomes they are designed to prevent are not yet apparent; when they become evident, it’s generally too late to act.

Obama’s Ghost Haunts Coronavirus Response

“The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing, and we undid that decision a few days ago so that the testing can take place in a much more accurate and rapid fashion,” President Donald Trump said at a meeting with airline executives on March 4 at the White House.

Responses to the Economic Consequences of the Coronavirus from Heritage Foundation Experts

Virtually every interest group in Washington will attempt to exploit the coronavirus crisis to further its own aims. The aphorism “Never let a good crisis go to waste” exists for a reason. Heritage Foundation policy experts say Congress should not allow the crisis to be exploited either by special interests seeking bailouts or those seeking policy aims that are only tangentially related to the crisis.

A Bad Idea For Ohio And A Terrible Idea For America

No Republican has ever been elected President without Ohio, and Ohio has furnished eight Presidents with Ohio roots – all Republicans. So why the Buckeye State’s Republican-controlled legislature and Governor would want to dilute their state’s Electoral College votes via the Democrat proposal to bypass the Electoral College is a complete mystery to us.

Far Left Anti-Electoral College Plan Building Momentum

Democrats have long opposed the Electoral College because with overwhelming margins of victory in high-population states like California they could dominate future presidential elections based on the popular vote, so they have concocted a plan to try to bypass the constitutional amendment process.

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

Mr. Trump, Personnel IS Policy. Say No Thanks To Chris Christie As Attorney General

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been a loyal supporter of Donald Trump and undoubtedly deserves a political payoff for his support. We suggest Ambassador to Someplace Warm that does not have an Islamism problem, perhaps the Republic of Vanuatu, but certainly not Attorney General.

The lie in the Obama-Clinton narrative about the global jihad movement’s alleged “selective” use of religious texts to justify its actions is that terrorism and sexual slavery and everything that goes with them are not inventions of ISIS, or “violent extremists,” they are right there in the Qur’an – and in graphic terms that cannot be misunderstood or taken out of context.

Chris Christie Would Have Been Defeated In The 2014 Wave

Had Chris Christie been on the ballot this year he might very well have gone down to defeat for the same reasons Democratic candidates for Governor had a bad day at the ballot box – high taxes and out-of-control state spending.

Some of Chris Christie's potential rivals who are also governors have sought ways to leverage fed. money, and others have spurned the Medicaid expansion altogether. Christie, however, embraced Obama’s vision of expanding the fed.-state health care program for the poor.
