Trump Aide Said Something Dangerous on Sunday

One of the great advantages of youth is that it's a time to make mistakes, say silly stuff you might regret later, and generally experiment and try on different roles.

Will Congress Stop Forcing Pro-Life Americans to Subsidize Abortion?

Last month marked 44 years since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision declaring a constitutional right to abortion. Roe remains one of the Supreme Court's most controversial decisions.

The Trumpish Cabinet

In typical liberal fashion, the mean weenie left has called Donald Trump's cabinet horrible things. "Corrupt nitwits." "Career criminals." "Greedy thugs." "Clueless dunces." "Bad dancers."

CNN’s a Beacon in Dark Times

The Cable News Network has never quite lived up to its slogan as "The most trusted name in news" - due largely to the public's dismal view of journalism in general coupled with CNN's own unforced errors. Yet, among today's news options, CNN has become invaluable.
