    The American foreign-policy establishment is wringing its collective hands over Donald Trump’s phone conversation with the President of Taiwan, and his subsequent tweet in which he took China to task for its currency devaluation, tariffs on American products, and military build-up in the South China Sea. But there was some surprising support for Trump’s initiative on today’s Morning Joe. First, Mark Halperin said this showed that Trump wasn’t planning to be a passive “inbox president” [Ed.: sayonara, leading from behind], and that it was a way for the US to get “leverage” on China where we had none before.

De La Fuente cites a sworn letter from a Broward County election volunteer that reveals election officials filled in blank absentee ballots in a locked room, a behavior the campaign calls highly suspicious. De La Fuente is suing to expose a current hole in Florida election law, namely that officials don’t monitor closely for potential voter fraud unless the election...

    President-elect Trump is quickly assembling his Executive cabinet. Key leaders in Congress are ready to repeal Obamacare and the disastrous Iran deal. But on immigration, legislators in Congress are already moving against his long-term plans--and the will of the people. It’s not so much that I’m surprised, as astonished—at the rank stupidity or suicidal arrogance of some elected officials—Sen. Lindsey Graham specifically—and he’s at it again. During the primary, Trump punked Graham by releasing his phone number to the public. Undeterred, Graham desperately tried to break into the first-tier. He cut one commercial: 18 Ways to Destroy Your Phone, or...

    The mills of democratic politics in Palestinian organizations grind slowly, if they ever grind at all. This was borne out once again at the 7th General Congress of the Fatah section of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) held in Ramallah, the capital of the West Bank, on November 29, 2016, the anniversary of the day in 1947 when the UN General Assembly approved the Partition of Palestine. This was the first such conference since 2009. It was attended by 1400 delegates compared with 2355 in 2009. The main function of the Congress was to elect the leader of Fatah, the...

    With Trump's excellent team, such as USMC (Ret) General James Mattis in charge, the U.S. government has all the battlefield expertise it needs to win the Jihad War. We can start by keeping in mind that the U.S. military won every engagement it wanted to win in Iraq -- the ones we lost are due to our dreadful civilian bumblers. Nevertheless, losing naval control of the Gulf, for example, still puts us in a damned awkward position. Vladimir Putin has put on an almighty show of military fireworks, most obviously when Assad invited Putin into Syria to fight against American-backed...

    Few celebs have been more rabidly anti-Trump than Ken Burns of PBS documentary fame. If you had seen his Stanford commencement speech which was in reality an anti-Trump speech earlier this year, you would know what I mean. The way he sounded is that it would mark the end of the Republic if Trump were elected. Therefore right after the election I kept looking for what I thought would be the inevitable Ken Burns anti-Trump rant. It did not come. It is as if Ken Burns was so shaken up by the election result that he was paralyzed and unable...

    No sooner had president-elect Trump announced a deal had been reached with air conditioner manufacturer Carrier to keep 1,100 manufacturing jobs in Indiana rather than being shipped to Mexico, the usual suspects began chattering about “corporate welfare”, “crony capitalism”, and the hypocritical picking of winners and losers. Carrier is an established business, not a pipe dream like the green energy failures President Obama subsidized like Solyndra. It is one of many U.S. businesses struggling to survive in the Obama era of high taxes and oppressive regulation. Trump has promised to cut corporate taxes and eliminate oppressive and job-killing regulations, but...

    The American left elected Donald Trump. They've been voting for him for decades, and at last they've succeeded. If the left's post-election behavior is any indication, they intend to keep doing so. I write metaphorically, of course. Few leftists actually voted for Trump, but as sure as the sunrise, they elected him. The fact is hardly debatable, as principled leftists like Noam Chomsky, Joan Williams, and Chris Hedges have said. Here's one example of the process in action: shortly before Election Day in 2000, polls had Green Party candidate Ralph Nader garnering 5%-9% of the popular vote. He got 2.7%....

But later Saturday night, the party announced it’ll go to federal court instead. A statement from the lead lawyer for the recount campaign says it’ll seek an emergency federal court order for the recount. It says barriers to a recount in...

    Donald Trump plans to “roll back progress” on climate change, energy and the environment, activists, regulators and their media allies assert. The claim depends on one’s definition of “progress.” These interest groups define “progress” as ever-expanding laws, regulations, bureaucracies and power, to bring air and water emissions of every description down to zero, to prevent diseases that they attribute to manmade pollutants and forestall “dangerous manmade climate change.” Achieving those goals requires controlling nearly every facet of our economy, industries, lives, livelihoods and living standards. If we are talking about halting and reversing this unbridled federal control, President-Elect Trump has...

Instead, the same people who promised us Trump had no chance of victory are hysterically insisting that the world is coming to an end. For months, we were told that a Clinton victory was inevitable, and nearly every poll seemed to confirm this viewpoint. Of course Clinton did end up winning the popular vote, as many national polls projected, but her losses in...

    In their book Presidential Greatness political scientists Marc Landy and Sidney Milkis argue that the success of a president rests on his ability to “engage the nation in its struggle for its constitutional soul.” Moreover, they posit that a great president is he who is able to “stage a conservative revolution” that brings about change and establishes a lasting legacy. A “conservative revolution” in this context is to be understood as significant progress within the bounds of the Constitution and not as a political ideology in itself. Formulated and published at the very turn of the 21st century, these standards...

    Most building contractors have a goal of finishing their projects in the time specified, with the money budgeted. The closer you get to doing both, the more profitable and the more successful your company will be. The sad truth is, most building companies have a hard time hitting those two very important goals. Why? Because it's extremely difficult. Most construction projects have complexity that is hard to comprehend; the efforts of scheduling, price change, human error, and the cycles it takes to be on time and under budget are mind-boggling. It's not normal for construction companies of all sizes to...

Trump’s spokesman also confirmed that the call happened. The U.S. maintains unofficial relations with Taiwan but hasn’t conducted official diplomacy since the end of Carter’s administration, as a concession to maintaining...

Although he did  scoop his own PR team by announcing the appointment of General Mattis as Secretary of Defense he also passed on the opportunity to say bad things about any of his previous rivals in both parties.This newly tempered demeanor, along with the near universal praise for the thoughtful and seriously...
