Congressional Democrats are butting heads with President Trump over his demand for $5 billion to continue building a wall along the southern border. Rep. Nancy Pelosi vows not one dollar will go for a wall. She calls the idea of a wall “immoral.” Not building the wall is what’s truly immoral. Allowing destitute, uneducated people […]

Trump Has U.S. Autoworkers’ Backs


Auto tariffs were the big takeaway from this weekend’s meeting between President Trump and Chinese leaders to de-escalate their trade war. But don’t be misled. The real threat to American auto jobs isn’t Chinese tariffs on American made cars. It’s China’s plan to flood the U.S. with cut-rate cars made with low paid labor. After […]

Trump’s Plan to Stop the Caravan


President Trump is putting the economic screws to Mexico to control the flood of Central American migrants storming our southern border. Unlike prior presidents, Trump is driving a hard bargain. Exports are Mexico’s economic lifeblood. A staggering 81% of those exports go to the U.S. That’s why Trump’s threat to close the border — even for […]

Trump Sees Burning Issue With California Fires


President Trump’s critics are belittling him for not buying the politically correct narrative that global warming is to blame for the California wildfires.

Empower Voters, Not Lawyers


If Americans are losing confidence in elections, don’t blame Russian hackers. The damage is self-inflicted.

Republicans are “trying to convince everybody to be afraid of a bunch of impoverished, malnourished refugees,” Obama says. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasts Republicans for stoking “baseless fear” for political purposes. Baseless […]

Will Blue States Go for Trumponomics?


In a contest too close to call, Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski is running to slash Connecticut taxes and bring Trumponomics to the state. The nation is watching to see whether a fiscal reformer can sell Trump’s tax-cutting approach to voters who disdain Trump. Critics call Stefanowski’s proposal to phase out the state income tax […]

Washington’s Phony Battle Against Russian Meddling


The Justice Department announced charges against Russian social media manipulator Elena Khusyaynova on Friday. She is accused of conspiring to set up fake Facebook and Twitter accounts under names like “Bertha Malone,” “Rachell Edison,” and “wokeluisa” that posted “tens of thousands of messages” about gun rights, immigration, the midterm elections, and other controversial topics. No one […]

Medicare for All: A Disaster 


Senator Bernie Sanders says that because Medicare is “the most popular, successful and cost-effective health insurance in the country” everyone should have it, regardless of age. But watch out for the bait and switch. Truth is, Sanders’ Medicare for All legislation actually abolishes Medicare and Medicare Advantage, as well as employer-provided coverage, union plans and plans people buy […]

Dems’ Socialist Ideas Will Tank Economy


The most striking difference between Democrats and Republicans is not their views on #MeToo, affirmative action, or the Supreme Court. It’s how they view the economy. Republicans deplore socialism. But more than half of Democrats view socialism favorably, in a recent Gallup poll. The Democratic Party’s left flank is turning the midterm elections into a […]
