President Trump Is Right to Strike Again at Assad


The recent chemical weapons attack in Syria has complicated President Trump’s desire to draw down American forces fighting there. At the same time the president wishes to reduce our presence in Syria, he understands that he cannot allow Assad’s provocation to go unanswered. Yet, the solution, as I’ve argued elsewhere, is simple: Trump can still draw […]

Trump and the Degenerate GOP Spenders


President Donald J. Trump is unhappy. Why? Because he signed a wildly unpopular (outside of Washington, D.C. at least) omnibus spending bill. Chants of “never again” emanated from the president’s mouth as he described the $1.3 trillion spending bill as “ridiculous” (as though he had no choice but to sign the dreadful legislation). Pathetically, the […]

The ‘Conservative’ Chorus of Consternation


Republican Senators Jeff Flake, Marco Rubio, Bob Corker, and Lindsey Graham — along with Representative Trey Gowdy — joined the chorus of consternation from so-called congressional conservatives, decrying President Donald Trump’s recent tweets aimed at Robert Mueller and his absurd investigation into purported collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

We Need Smart Protectionism


President Donald Trump has fulfilled yet another campaign promise. He has opted to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum goods coming from overseas. Trump has cautioned the American people about the dangers of untrammeled free trade for decades. Unlike many of my free trader friends, I recognize the damage that free — but unfair — […]

Our Kids Are Not All Right


The news has been reporting on the willingness of several schools to allow high school students to engage in a walk-out protest over the continuation of the Second Amendment in this country. Many in the media are lauding this approach to civic behavior. Although, I am wondering if the county will have enough truancy officers […]

Toxic Liberalism Created Nikolas Cruz


After watching the horrific events unfold last week at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — and seeing that it was a former student, a young man named Nikolas Cruz, who perpetrated the massacre — can anyone honestly argue that Western civilization is not in decline? Nikolas Cruz, age 19, was a […]

To Spend or Not to Spend


With the recent budget vote, Washington has decided to spend an additional $300 billion over the next two years, on top of the $1 trillion that we’ve just tacked on to the national debt with the recent tax cuts.
