Thanks to President Trump Catholics have had two big victories, but the President’s failure to act during his first 100 days on the larger issue of protecting religious liberty remains a glaring omission in an otherwise positive start to the Trump administration.

Many in Congress will not welcome her nomination and will seek to stop it. However, limited government constitutional conservatives should welcome the nomination of Prof. Neomi Rao to head OIRA as a major victory for constitutional government and fight tooth and nail to secure her confirmation.

If every presidency lasted only 100 days, no one would be known for accomplishing anything. Plus, Chuck Schumer fires another air-ball in trying to score points against Jeff Sessions, and, Dispute over border wall could be the reason why Democrats shut down the government.

Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign the just-out book by respected political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes tells the truth about how and why sure winner Hillary Clinton went down to a defeat that still has Washington reeling.

What made Kate O'Beirne so effective was the strength of her convictions and her ability to craft a brilliant argument. She believed that a more conservative America was a better America for everyone. And it was impossible to persuade her otherwise.

The media would count Trump’s first 100 days as a failure regardless of what transpired. Plus, If Congress doesn’t increase defense spending, should Trump take the blame?, and, Poll shows Trump’s voters don’t regret voting for him, still enjoys broad support.

Vice President Pence's remarks in Indonesia painted what is at best a misleading picture of the facts on the ground. Let’s hope that behind the scenes the Vice President and President Trump’s national security team know what’s really going on in the world’s most populous Muslim country.

Democrats are wrong again if they think there’s a huge anti-Trump wave looming for 2018. Plus, Chaffetz’s retirement sends shockwaves through the GOP, but does it really signal anything?, and, Would you rather go to the White House with Ted Nugent or Beyoncé?

There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.

If President Trump and Secretary Tillerson don’t expose the truth about Obama’s secret side deals with Iran, Americans will remain in the dark, not only about what commitments to Iran Obama bound us to, but whether the Trump administration has been honest when they said Iran is complying with the deal and that there would be a break with Obama’s dangerous policy of appeasing the Islamist terrorist state.

When the White House announced John DeStefano’s appointment, CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie said, “Those who hoisted the pirate flag and joined the Trump team when he was at 2 percent in the polls . . . must wonder what the devil is going on,” and called the choice a “major impediment” to Trump’s goals. And it remains so by every indication one can detect from a recent article in The Washington Post.

Wars may not always be about money but there’s no doubt political fights seem to be. Plus, Soap opera-like media coverage of the Trump White House team created their celebrity status, and, Jeff Sessions wants action on the border wall, Democrats say it will cost too much.

    The accepted logic of the rogue state is that the Westernized world is so affluent and leisured, and life is so good, that it will understandably grant almost any immediate geostrategic or monetary concession to avoid serious disruptions of the international order. The logic of appeasement is always more appeasement — especially in the one-bomb nuclear age.

  • Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Daily Caller

    As long as attorneys general or even federal bureaucrats have the power to issue their own warrants, they will abuse that power to target the rights of their ideological opponents. It is time to protect the First Amendment by restoring the Fourth Amendment, and eliminate administrative subpoenas.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    If a referendum were held across Europe today, asking whether the mass migrations from the former colonies of Africa and the Middle East have on balance made Europe a happier and better place to live in in recent decades, what would that secret ballot reveal? Does Macron really represent the future of France, or is he perhaps one of the last men of yesterday?

  • William Murchison, The American Spectator

    It is impossible, in public discourse, to doubt the reality of climate change. Actually no one doubts a phenomenon proved by dinosaur bones and the cliffs of the Grand Canyon. The argument ought not to be over whether but what to do. A lot? How much? With what tools and weapons, and on what schedule?

  • Dan Boylan, Washington Times

    Grassley is 83 years old and has been in the Senate since 1981. His career in Washington began in 1975 when he served in the House of Representatives. During 42 years in Washington, the Iowan has endured Watergate, the Iran-Contra affair, the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, Valerie Plame and Benghazi. For him, the dossier presented a Washington-style follow-the-money angle that investigators needed to pursue. The real question remains: Who paid Mr. Steele for the material?

  • Ken Blackwell, CNS News

    A few months ago, the usual pundits said a Trump presidency was impossible. But voters had a different idea. Now we have a president who is leading from the front and delivering strong, practical, and conservative government that serves all of us.

  • Tim Alberta, Politico Magazine

    Buchanan has spent decades researching and thinking and writing about the threat he believes recent immigrants pose to America’s identity, and he comes to the subject armed with reams of statistics and arguments grounded in his reading of history. “But this,” Buchanan says, “is the last chance for these ideas.”

  • Roger Kimball, PJ Media

    There is at work a machinery of ontological depreciation. It almost doesn't matter what Trump does. The operative policy of the MSM is to meet his actions with hostility where possible, contemptuous negligence where hostility is not advisable.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    Inexperience and novelty have been defining characteristics of President Trump's first three months in office, both for better and for worse. He has made rookie mistakes and proven malleable, even credulous to bad arguments. But, to good effect, his flexibility has dragged him away from some bad ideas, and there are signs that his could be a sharply pragmatic administration.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    It is beyond time to reinvigorate the principle that law enforcement’s first priority is to do justice. Not only must government officials follow the rules; their adherence must be monitored — not to harass the law-abiding but to root out the corrupt. Examples must be made of those who abuse their powers.

  • Bill Donohue, CNS News

    We know that Kim K. and her family have been through a lot—their problems are mostly self-induced—but that is no excuse for ripping off Catholic iconography to make a quick buck and grab headline news.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Look, Democrats, speaking sincerely as your friend, understand that everyone who says you need to take a deep look at yourselves is a racist, sexist, homophobe who won’t even ask about your preferred pronoun. Whatever you do, don’t you ever change.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Democracy requires common ground on which all can stand, but that ground is sinking beneath our feet, and democracy may be going down the sinkhole with it. Where liberals see as an ever-more splendid diversity of colors, creeds, ethnicities, ideologies, beliefs and lifestyles, the right sees the disintegration of a country, a nation, a people, and its replacement with a Tower of Babel. Visions in conflict that democracy cannot reconcile.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Was the CIA's John Brennan using Reid to put additional pressure on James Comey to accelerate his investigation into Trumpworld? What emerges from these fragments is a picture of far-flung and stunningly flaky political espionage — a game of Russian whispers played by partisans desperate to interpret the shoddiest “intelligence” in the most sinister light in order to help Hillary and hurt Trump.

  • L. Brent Bozell and Tim Graham, Investor's Business Daily

    Women deserve a workplace where men don't harass them for sex. But that's what these sanctimonious liberal journalists care about. It just doesn't matter how brutal the alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick was. What matters is that Bill O'Reilly had to go. Bill Clinton is laughing.
