  • How Trump Can Dismantle Obamacare Without Congress

    After more than eight years of promising to end Obamacare, Republicans in Congress—despite having control of both the House and Senate—have failed to stop this disastrous health care law. But thanks to an important provision Republicans included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act when they passed the law in December 2017, the Trump administration may soon have an opportunity to end Obamacare without Congress, which might force Republican congressmen to finally get their act together and pass health care legislation that would empower states and local governments and free health care markets from costly federal government mandates. As I have...

    How does the left think that normal people are going to react to the left’s rejection of the idea of rational discussion and debate and it’s attempt to keep them from participating in their own governance? What does the elite think lurks at the bottom of that slippery slope? Do liberals think the normals will A) meekly submit to abuse and be cowed into submission, or B) that the normals will grow even more militant and make their voices heard in other, nastier ways?Spoiler: The answer is B. Donald Trump is just one manifestation of the blowback against the rule-by-contempt our alleged betters currently...

    President Donald J. Trump announced via Twitter that he will officially order the Department of Justice to investigate whether or not President Obama's Department of Justice or the FBI infiltrated his 2016 presidential campaign for political purposes. This announcement comes after the New York Times and Washington Post confirmed a story first reported by the Daily Caller News Foundation's Chuck Ross that a Cambridge professor had been used by the American government to gain access into Trump's presidential campaign. From Chuck Ross:"A top-secret CIA and FBI source who spied on two Trump campaign advisers and initiated contact with a third was all...

  • Trump’s New Abortion Regulation Continues Jack Kemp’s Pro-Life Legacy

    On Friday, President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services announced it would be updating the Title X regulation framework to better enforce the letter of the law, which outlaws federal funding for abortion, and to ensure that federal family planning dollars do not go to facilities that perform abortion. This new framework is based largely on President Reagan’s similar Title X regulation in 1988, which was challenged in court but eventually upheld by the Supreme Court in Rust v. Sullivan.However, up to now, the framework has never truly been enforced. President Clinton quickly ditched it as soon as he took...

    A brief direct message on Twitter gave me the grave news I feared the most: President Trump endorsed John Cox, a Chicago-born businessman who carpet-bagged to California five years ago, for Governor of California.I am stunned, and it made me sick to my stomach. Full disclosure: I support Assemblyman Travis Allen for governor, the candidate who has been outspoken about his support for Trump and his agenda from the beginning.But the bigger issue comes to the following questions: Why would Trump support Cox instead of Allen?Who is giving advice to the President? Did he make this decision himself?How does...

    President Donald Trump continues to address the American people’s practical needs. Now, he is out to reduce drug costs with his latest initiative “American Patients First.” Barack Obama recognized there was a health care problem. But he took the wrong action by pushing through Congress legislation that dramatically raised the cost of health insurance and reduced the medical choices for many Americans. After making the health care problem worse, the Left fixated on pharmaceutical costs. And prices are too high. Noted Alex Azar II, the Secretary of Health and Human Services: “This burden has become a threat to the...

    Outrage will be directed at the media and their allies who committed this injustice and placed their political biases above their obligations to be truthful with the American people. According to the Media Research Center, broadcast television news coverage of President Trump was 90% negative in the first quarter of 2018. This is not an aberration for the negative coverage has been constant since Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign on June 16, 2015. On a daily basis, the liberal media present a sustained flow of Trump hating garbage masquerading as news reporting. It not only a hallmark of the...

    The liberal media made fools out of themselves Wednesday as nearly every major news outlet rushed to breathlessly report that President Trump had called all illegal immigrants to the United States “animals.” Of course, the glaring problem with their claims was that they were totally false. And despite the fact the media had to issue reams of retractions and corrections, NBC Nightly News and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo kept up the charade Thursday evening. Here is Trump’s comment, complete with the full context: UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don't reach...

    Methinks the Mika doth protest too much . . . Poor Mika Brzezinski. She absolutely, definitely, doesn’t want to discuss President Trump’s possible “cheap, disgusting affair” with Stormy Daniels or others. And neither does anyone else on the Morning Joe panel. Mika made that point twice today. But, sadly, she and her crew are forced—and believe me, they have to be dragged kicking and screaming!—to discuss Trump’s possible peccadilloes because the prez has made himself a potential Russian blackmail target.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Ever since Donald J. Trump won a stunning victory against Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, the Left was convinced there was something at play to cause this event. How could the politically tone deaf Hillary lose? How could a woman with no charisma, economic agenda, or political skill lose? How could a woman who wrote off half the country as deplorable racists lose? You know the answer to this, but for liberals it had to be the Russians. The mocking of the GOP over Russia being our biggest geopolitical rival was relegated to the trashcan. Now, it was the...

    Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady. In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump's Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as "not culturally American," former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former President George H.W. Bush's funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery. Yet, while partisans in the political press and entertainment media work hard to stoke division against and resentment of the Trump...

    The ballgame is over on Gina Haspel’s confirmation battle. She’s President Trump’s nominee for CIA director. She will be the first female director in the agency’s history. Nevertheless, the process has been a mini-war on women, with dedicated left-wingers pushing the usual talking point: ‘yeah, she’s a woman, but she’s not a real woman.' Translation: only liberal women can be true feminists and only liberal women can benefit from feminism. Oh, and if you’re nominated by a Republican, especially Trump, you’re Satan, or something. Yet, she’s been able to clinch some Democrats, as Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Rand Paul (R-KY)...

    Democrats stand to make gains in the upcoming midterm elections -- but their cockiness about winning sweeping victories has reportedly become more restrained in recent days, thanks to tightening generic ballot polling and improved presidential approval numbers.  CNN's newest national survey shows most Americans are pleased with the general state of the country, with Democrats' 2018 advantage down to just three points (as opposed to 16 points in the same series several months ago).  Reuters' national data shows Democrats' lead whittled down to one measly point, well within the margin of error.  At the beginning of the year, 'Chuck and...

    Well, someone finally said it: Liberals, you’re not as smart as you think—and you’re helping Donald J. Trump win a second term. Gerard Alexander, a political science professor at the University of Virginia, wrote this in The New York Times and he might have to change his name after this. He aptly noted how a) cultural centers are dominated by progressives; b) how they’re causing a backlash against liberalism; and c) how their inability to see that they are causing it will lead to a Trump victory in the next presidential election. The professor noted how the Left is overly...

    I don’t think those who voted for President Donald Trump knew what they were actually getting when he won. They were tired of the polarized inaction out of Washington. They recoiled at the prospect of Hillary Clinton, tainted by her questionable decisions and the prospect of another eight years of liberal overreach. They surprised the pundits and voted for a man with plenty of opinions and no political experience. They elected what might accurately be described as an “outrageous outsider.” Many complain about his impulsive tweets. He brags too much. Instead of political decorum, he calls his political adversaries...

    The Democrats are having a major case of the sadz, and it’s hilarious. Their generic lead in the midterms ballot has evaporated. After the Iran and North Korea triumphs, Obama’s legacy is just a smoking ruin of broken dreams and corrected failures. And Stormy Daniels’s cheesy reign on CNMSNBC has morphed into a rain of singles from leering weirdos at creepy places with names like “The Treasure Chest” and “Reliable Sources.” So what do the liberals do when they are losing the all the big fights? They try to score points by taking some conservative scalps, which should thrill...

    Of all the things Barack Obama said that annoyed me--and the list was long--right up there was his frequent misuse of MLK's statement that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” That statement was deeply religious in its foundation. But Obama used it to somehow suggest that the triumph of left-wing politics is inevitable. Joe Scarborough has come up with a variation on the theme. On today's Morning Joe, trying to explain why Trump staffers leak, Scarborough said: "They want to be on the right side of history . . . They know this presidency...
