    We're still just days into 2020. Now is the perfect time for President Donald Trump to drive the Democrats (aka radical socialists) crazy with rage by announcing these executive orders. Remember, I was the columnist who urged the president to declare a national security emergency at the border and then use funds from the military budget to pay for the border wall. Just days ago, a federal court ruled in Trump's favor, freeing $3.6 billion for border wall construction. That's called #winning. I have more crucial executive orders for President Trump. As I've said all along, the president should...

    Just one day after two Black Hebrew Israelites targeted a kosher supermarket in Jersey City, killing one police officer and three private citizens, President Trump signed an executive order designed to address growing antisemitism on college campuses. The Order permits the federal government to deny funding to universities that don’t properly address the rising epidemic of Jew-hatred on their campuses. Of course, the left is melting down Twitter with embarrassing hot takes.

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: Imagine each working day, federal employees report for work but do not perform any governmental duties. Instead, they work for a private enterprise void of any public purpose — their union. Taxpayers pay for these employees’ wages, pensions and health care benefits. Taxpayers pay for office space, supplies and travel, too. Unfortunately, there is no need to imagine. It is a longstanding and wasteful practice, known as union official time. Generally, federal employees on official time perform union business such as negotiate contracts, file grievances, attend union conferences and even lobby Congress. The latest data from the Office of...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Friday unveiled a new plan to tackle the pay gap between men and women as well as racial disparities in employee compensation if she is elected president. In a Medium post, the 2020 candidate touted a set of executive actions that would impose new requirements on federal contractors, and penalize companies shown to have poor track records on race or gender-based pay by ending contracts or refusing future business.The executive actions would also prevent companies seeking federal contracts from forcing employees to sign non-compete or forced arbitration agreements that Warren said restricts rights to raise...

    President Trump is considering an executive order to try to move forward with a citizenship question on the 2020 census, top sources tell Jonathan Swan and me. "We didn’t come this far just to throw in the towel," said a senior administration official with direct knowledge of the conversations. Former federal judge J. Michael Luttig, who has longtime ties to officials in the administration, told Axios: "If the president of the United States were to issue an executive order, supported by his full Article II powers, directing that the citizenship question be included in the 2020 census, I believe the...

    Shortly after the United States ‘liberated’ Iraq from Saddam Hussein, U.S. military forces, American diplomats, and Iraqi leaders established the country’s first truly free elections in decades. As part of their plan to prevent voter fraud and ensure election integrity, planners adopted a measure requiring everyone who voted to dip their finger in purple paint to show they had already cast a ballot (and, thus, could not cast another). It was a rudimentary but effective and sensible ‘voter ID’ measure that Left-wing Democrats in America would never tolerate — because, again, such a method was relatively cheat-proof and, well, Democrats...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — One by one, the Republican senators floated their ideas. They were trying to find a way out of a seemingly impossible dilemma: how to support President Donald Trump's U.S.-Mexico border wall without approving the national emergency declaration he invoked to build it. And one by one, during a private lunchtime meeting that ran hot at times, they found no easy answers. As a deadline for voting looms, it's increasingly clear that Republican senators are deeply uncomfortable with Trump's use of executive power to build the wall and desperate to devise a way around the vote. Senators know...

    Conflicted: Because the presidents who nominate them are political, federal judges who are appointed to the bench are political as well, which is why our country gets so many rulings from that conflict — or appear to conflict — with U.S. law. We got another one on Monday: A federal judge in California, appointed to the bench by President Obama, ruled that POTUS Donald Trump has no authority to issue an executive order changing asylum rules that are clearly being abused by hordes of migrants. The Associated Press reported: …U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar agreed with legal groups that immediately...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...

    For Trump to speak of eliminating the practice where illegal immigrants can arrange to have babies in this country, and they automatically become American citizens, is very much part of his eleventh-hour push on immigration. At a time when he has been pounding away at the Central American caravan — at least until that narrative was interrupted by terror attacks — birthright citizenship is shrewdly targeted to his base. "It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don't," Trump told Axios. When pressed, he said that "you can definitely do it with an...

    “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” According to a widely repeated Axios interview with President Trump the administration is considering an executive order to eliminate the “Anchor Baby” interpretation within the 14th Amendment focused on “Birthright Citizenship.”If the initial review of the intent is accurate, President Trump would sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil. Until the 1960s, the 14th Amendment was...

    Expect an explosion of media outrage and high powered lawsuits, especially in jurisdictions with Trump-hating federal judges.  President Trump has launched an October surprise. Last night in an interview granted to Jonathan Swan of Axios, President Trump announced his plans to use an executive order to end birthright citizenship for children born on American territory to illegal immigrants and foreign citizens, presumably at least those “not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States” as required by the 14th Amendment. The Washington Post reports “We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a...
