The next step is to formalize what the Commander-in-Chief announced on July 26.  The Pentagon must formally revoke expendable Obama-era administrative directives, which were written in consultation with LGBT activist groups.

On the one-year anniversary of Hillary’s Clinton’s acceptance speech at the Democrat Convention in Philadelphia it’s clear the Washington establishment is still very much alive and unvanquished. Conservatives can either stand up and continue the fight or wave a white flag and surrender.

While Americans will sacrifice if America is threatened, they aren’t likely to look kindly at proposals to, say, cut Social Security and Medicare because the Europeans don’t want to cut their social programs in order to hike military outlays.

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

Imran Awan, the Democrat's IT administrator arrested trying to flee the country, who is rumored to have ties to Pakistan’s ISI intelligence agency, is not just any small fry IT worker – he’s also a high-level Muslim activist.

People won’t have to search very hard to discover the real culprits in the Obamacare repeal debacle. In Hamlet, Shakespeare wrote, “Frailty, thy name is woman.” In 2017, it’s more like “Failure, incompetence, corruption and fecklessness, thy name is establishment.”

It is a bizarre world indeed when perpetual maverick Senator John McCain saves the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare and also gives one of the more sensible analyses of why the process is a mess.

The House of Representatives, and especially the Capitol Police whose job is generally viewed as protecting Members from embarrassment, not counter-espionage, cannot be trusted to conduct a full and politics-free investigation of this national security disaster.

Chuck Schumer’s right: American capitalism does need a reexamination. But the Democrats shouldn’t be surprised when the people demand more of it, not the warmed-over rebranded “Better Deal” they’re offering to move attention away from their latest ploy to foster socialism.

If the GOP Congress doesn't produce on the Obamacare repeal don’t be intimidated about running for office - if there was ever a year in which being an incumbent and having the support of lobbyists, insiders and political powerbrokers was a hindrance, not a help, 2018 will be that year.

Dunkirk is not so much a war movie, as say The Longest Day, Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan is a war movie; it is a character study of the British people at a pivotal moment in world history and how British values and character overcame the Nazi juggernaut.

The Washington establishment is clearly on life support. One can only speculate the GOP “moderates” will soon understand that their best – and only – option is to play a little team sports, go along with the play that’s called and hope everyone does their job in the execution.

    From his history, Mueller is not a man to be intimidated by charges of bias. These will only steel his resolve to pursue with his subpoena power every document he wants, including tax returns, until he has satisfied himself. The president is unlikely to view this process with indulgence, and patience does not appear to rank high among his virtues.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Trump’s thankless recovery of common sense shows once again that conservatism is too important to be left to self-appointed conservatives. Had the rank-and-file listened to these frauds, Hillary Clinton would be president, her boot would lay on their necks, and the military would be building statues to “Chelsea” Manning.

    The reason why Type 1 diabetics are barred from the military is because of their need for regular injections; accommodating them is not practical. Trans persons need regular injections as well. So if anything, allowing trans persons to serve, but not Type 1 diabetics, is not fair—it is an expression of unjust discrimination. The answer is not to allow these diabetics to serve, but to ban both groups.

  • Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

    The military services have always been able to recruit whom they think fit, even in wartime when the draft takes in everyone. The generals and admirals have never before been required to abide anything or anyone to fracture unit cohesion, or coddle the weak and unfit, or take unacceptable risks for the sake of appeasing politics.

    "I tell you this, if you stand up and campaign and say we're going to repeal Obamacare, and you vote for Obamacare, those are not consistent," Cruz said. "And the American people are entirely justified in saying, 'any politician who told me that and voted the other way didn't tell me the truth. They lied to me.'"

  • Ted Van Dyk, Wall Street Journal

    Democrat leaders' focus on political correctness and conformity has left an impression on traditional Democrats that their party leaders care more about transgender bathroom access than employment, the cost of living, education or public safety. Mrs. Clinton’s “deplorables” reference struck home with these voters.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    President Trump won not in spite of his utter indifference to the media’s self-serving counsel but because of it. If a Republican candidate follows the media’s advice, he typically loses; if a Republican in office takes the media’s advice, he governs fecklessly, makes no meaningful gains, and loses re-election.

    Imagine if a national newspaper had asked voters in 2009 whether then-President Barack Obama should be impeached, or questioned whether he would finish his term. The left would have exploded in rage over the inherent racism in such preposterous questions. After all, at that point, Democrats were in control of both houses of Congress. Who thought that was plausible?

  • Selena Zito, New York Post

    Six months after Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, he received a hero’s welcome in Youngstown, Ohio. The festive scene made a counter-visual to the daily nonstop press reports about investigations into members of his inner circle, Russian interference in last year’s election and the debate over ObamaCare.

    Tax reform -- by jump-starting the economy -- will actually do much more for the health of the populace than any possible healthcare legislation, which would be a kludge anyway, even if better than Obamacare, which is the kludge of kludges, no one (including Obama himself, who lied about it incessantly) knowing what's in it to this day. With tax reform people will have more money to pay for everything -- including their health.

    "After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you," Trump said in a series of tweets.

  • David Harsanyi, The Federalist

    If people are persistently told that the GOP is preparing to “slash” Medicaid by a bazillion dollars and “revoke” the insurance of 26 million people, the average voter has every reason to be concerned. And if there isn’t a single Republican lawmaker out there effectively slapping down these misleading claims, voters will be. Republicans certainly can’t rely on factcheckers.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Among the principles for a just war, it must be waged as a last resort, to address a wrong suffered, and by a legitimate authority. Deaths of civilians are justified only if they are unavoidable victims of a deliberate attack on a military target. In which of the countries we have attacked or invaded in this century — Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen — are the people better off than they were before we came? And we wonder why they hate us.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    Chuck Schumer's promising better jobs for higher pay. Does that mean everyone's going to work for the government, because that's the only way he could guarantee that (and even then)? We all know where that leads. If that's the best he can come up with, the Democrats are in worse shape than I thought.

    One can only imagine how Jefferson, Madison, Mason, et al, must be rolling in their graves as they contemplate the disgusting practice of civil asset forfeiture, which basically allows agents of the government in the modern era to steal property from people who have not been convicted of any crime. I’m not joking. Even worse, government agencies are allowed to profit from this form of theft, creating a terrible incentive for abuse.
