Trump’s Revised Refugee Order Should Withstand Court Challenge

The fine print in President Donald Trump's revised executive order does more than pause travel from Muslim-majority Middle Eastern nations. The order includes an effort to raise public awareness about the potential danger inadequately vetted refugees pose, an important threat to the homeland that the media often downplays or ignores.

America Needs Comprehensive Tax Reform

The growth in the American economy during the Obama years was so negligible it's hardly worth the name. The Reagan boom that started when he succeeded in cutting the top margin rates ended when the sub-prime mortgage industry collapsed.

Behind the Jeff Sessions’ Witch Hunt

Every time Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer or his House equivalent Nancy Pelosi scream outrage, rest assured that their end game is to delegitimize President Trump's administration and to delay his legislative progress on tax cuts, health legislation and immigration reform.

We're all well acquainted with the fake news phenomenon - the Trumpian sewage that's routinely pumped into the brains of the dumb and numb. But the good news is, Facebook has started to fight back, working with a coalition of fact-based media outlets.

On Military and Spending, It’s Trump Versus Trump

It can be a challenge to follow the pronouncements of President Trump, as he often seems to change his position on any number of items from week to week, or from day to day, or even from minute to minute.
