The Establishment can’t even criticize Trump correctly
My distaste for Trump is well documented at this point, but when I read this evening about Hugh Hewitt’s interview of Donald Trump, I was struck by how terrible Hewitt’s whole line of questioning is. Hewitt – who gave Harriet Miers a “solid B+” and thought that was good enough – has essentially declared that Al Gore would have been a better President than George | Read More »

Another component of the deal is that even though Iran is on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terror, Iran’s support of terror was not an item of | Read More »
The New, Terrible Face of the Refugee Crisis
Lost in the mass coverage of the American tragedy in Roanoke last week, one of the largest humanitarian crises of the last century has been unfolding in Europe. As a direct result of the Obama Administration’s fecklessness in the Middle East, and their complete inability to check the rampage of ISIS across Iraq and Syria, millions of innocent people have fled across the Middle East | Read More »
President Obama Sends More Blood Money to Planned Parenthood Butchers
After months of investigative videos have uncovered the legally questionable and morally reprehensible sale of murdered babies’ body parts by Planned Parenthood, President Obama is taking action.
