Here’s a thought…

Rather than try to pass legislation to protect “Special Counsel” Mueller, the GOP Congress should subpoena Mueller and demand he answer legitimate questions about the course of his investigation— especially given its constitutional impact. Congress need not wait for Mueller to issue his pronouncements. Surely Mueller cannot be a power unto himself, immune from legislative…MORE

Sadly, we’ve been deceived…

Sadly, we’ve been deceived by some prominent figures for decades who preached fiscal conservatism but obviously never meant it. Republicans blowing through spending ceilings is apparently different than when Democrats do it. This massive spending and borrowing law feeds the very glutinous swamp outsiders and conservatives are supposed to reject. Yet, we are mocked for…MORE

The President’s speech…

This is a truly outstanding speech despite my substantive disagreements with the president’s new support for amnesty and big public spending on family leave and infrastructure. But solid on so much else and beautifully delivered. The American people will be very impressed. The media narrative on the president was obliterated tonight and the Democrats know…MORE

Oprah for president? I prefer Judge Judy…

In fact, Oprah’s speech was an outrageous diversion. She didn’t call out anyone by name, she didn’t point a finger at the audience and admonish the actors, nothing about the culture of sexual debauchery and molestation in the entertainment industry, etc. No wonder Hollywood cheered.MORE

Ten months ago I broke down the case of domestic surveillance against Trump world…

Not only has the case I made been validated, despite my being attacked by many liberal media outlets, it has led to the uncovering of even more stunning revelations — including the Fusion GPS-Russian dossier, funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC; the use of that dossier by the Obama administration to justify surveillance of…MORE

Ed Straker is wrong, again. Of course, he cherry picks from the show as he must

Congress sets the rates. But unless we eliminate all forms of deductions, people pay a different effective tax rate. As I explained, if you make a charitable donation to, say, a church or veterans organization, you can deduct that from your taxes. If someone else does not, they don’t have those deductions. Therefore, the effective…MORE

A pathetic lie repeated by GOP leaders…

Perhaps the House GOP and the President can explain to the American people how this is the “biggest tax cut in history.” That’s a pathetic lie repeated by GOP leaders all weekend. They don’t even have the guts to admit what they’re doing.MORE

The more we learn about the House GOP tax plan the more disastrous it becomes…

House GOP plan will be a disaster for the housing and real estate markets with a much lower cap on mortgage interest deductions and real estate tax deductions. They should slash individual and corporate tax rates, forget about the disastrous claw backs, and cut government spending and borrowing … but won’t.MORE

Odd defense of Schumer at Hot Air

Schumer clearly was the driving force behind expanding and making permanent the Diversity Visa Lottery program in 1990. No one said he invented the idea. No said it didn’t ore-date his effort in some form. But Schumer drive the current law. And the program should be axed. U.S. Counterintelligence has warned for some time about…MORE

Just think, in the last few weeks the Left has ruined the NFL, late night TV, and the Boy Scouts.

In the last few years they’ve severely damaged campus free speech and academic freedom, the private health care market, military readiness, and local law enforcement. Their judges have seized control over immigration, aspects of national security, and marriage. Meanwhile, the Left is increasingly violent (Antifa, Black Lives Matter, etc.) and the media are increasingly brazen…MORE
