As we see it, Jeb Bush’s claim that he wants a primary to spark “a conversation about what it is to be a conservative…” is nothing more than a cover story to justify a scorched earth primary campaign against Donald Trump that would only advantage the Democrats and jeopardize all the conservative successes of Trump’s first term.

This is another bold act of presidential leadership in support of one of America’s most important allies, Israel.  The president recognized that Israel’s control of the Golan Heights is the reality, and this is not going to change.  President Trump also sent a signal to Iran that the U.S. will not tolerate it using Syria as a platform to threaten Israel’s security.” Fred Fleitz, President and CEO of the Center for Security Policy.

Just like with building a house, every policy proposal must have a solid foundation. Without proper study and foresight ideas quickly fall apart, especially if they’re weak to begin with. The Democrats’ Green New Deal would be an exorbitant disaster and must be stopped.

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Titled “Forget Mars” a recent environmental alarmist article begins with the plea, “Please stop with these reckless journey imaginings” and demands that humans stop “presenting space voyages as inevitable.” Instead, mankind is admonished to throw our collective weight and brains into fixing the harm we’ve done here on Earth and to stop our expansionist pipe dreams.

Like today’s opinion polls, the idiosyncratic and contradictory marriage of Kellyanne and George Conway fails to reveal why the Trump presidency remains so polarizing for Americans. Time passes and opinions change, yet the country seems strangely set on their impressions of Donald Trump.

Putting aside the debate over bogus asylum admissions at our front door, with the recent Supreme Court rulings supporting President Trump’s policies, shouldn’t there be a comprehensive effort to empower and direct ICE to begin deporting as many of these people as possible?

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the fourth-ranking Republican in the Senate, was the only member of GOP leadership to vote for the Democrats' resolution of disapproval intended to block President Trump's emergency declaration. Now the Christian County, Missouri, Republican Central Committee has disinvited Blunt from their annual Lincoln - Trump dinner.

Polls show Trump’s maintained the modest job favorability bump he enjoyed after his SOTU address. If Democrats in Congress and on the campaign trail go to extremes the president won’t need to worry about setting distinctions. Reality is a tall enough hurdle for Democrats to clear.

Like Obama, O’Rourke is an empty vessel who sees himself as a man of destiny, and like Obama he has turned apologizing into an artform, indeed his readiness to apologize for anything and everything was our primary takeaway from his first few days on the campaign trail. Given that, Beto is shaping-up to be the perfect white guilt candidate for a Democrat Party who’s only organizing principle is racial and social animus.

Why should taxpayers, who have to go to the bottom of the dial or the 800s on their cable box to find conservative commentary, gospel music, a show about fishing, or a John Wayne movie be forced to subsidize content that caters to a narrow elite that despises them?

Democrat presidential primary debates should prove fascinating spectacles with each candidate vying for their own slice of party pie. When the dust settles it’s possible no one will command the respect of Democrat voters, placing President Trump in very good position heading into next year.

    Biden knows that just as Bernie Sanders, another white male, fell short in crucial South Carolina because of a lack of support among black voters, he, too, has a problem with that most loyal element in the Democratic coalition. With a record like his, how does Biden inoculate himself against attacks by rival candidates, especially candidates of color, in his run for the nomination? One way would be to signal to his party that his 2020 running mate will be a woman of color such as Stacey Abrams.

    AFTER the election, assuming he wins and even if not, Trump can quit. He would be doing a great service, liberating us from at least one of the pernicious social media sites. Those of us who are parents have watched in despair at the negative influence these companies have had on our children (particularly Facebook in that regard). Without social media, we could all go outside and play again. Hey, spring is around the corner. So do it, Donald. After the election.

    Despite the Left’s relentless moans that Trump supporters are hateful bullies, mayhem flows from Left to Right, as Trump haters force Trump fans to pay for their beliefs with physical injuries. And — think of the children! — they typically involve older people brutalizing younger Americans in MAGA hats. Severely neurotic Trump foes want to ban MAGA hats as intimidating and violent, even as Trump foes intimidate and violently attack Trump fans in MAGA hats. The circle of psychological projection is complete.

    We need to get it through our heads that no one is going to be as dumb as Saddam was and conveniently fight us the way we want to be fought. We need a complete strategic mindset revolution, one that moves from a few super-expensive systems to many affordable ones. We need to say good-bye to legacies of the 20th century, like mostly manned combat aircraft and a few huge carrier battle groups. We need to prepare to defeat the enemy we actually face, not the enemy we want to face.

    The FDA is obsessing about school kids using flavored e-cigarettes. Cracking down on vaping while standing by quietly as states legalize marijuana is wacky. The risk of marijuana to adolescent brains is indisputable. The concern that teen vapers might someday become cigarette smokers is speculative. As the push for marijuana legalization gains steam, politicians don’t deny the dangers to brain development. They just never mention it. Don’t let their silence fool you.

    Unlike in the United States and West where the left has made fossil fuels a dirty word, in Azerbaijan they are a point of pride because they are helping to lift a nation out of crushing socialist poverty and into economic prosperity. Given Turkey’s regressive shift to authoritarianism and Islamism, Azerbaijan is well-positioned to supplant it as the leading secular Muslim-majority nation. This locus of the new Silk Road seems tailor-made for that leadership role — and more than ready for it.

  • James Simpson, The Federalist

    It is tragic that large media outlets have joined the ranks of leftist smear merchants who have reduced political discourse in the United States to little more than infantile name-calling. The SPLC is one of the nastiest hate groups on the planet. It deliberately provokes division and anger in America on a daily basis to advance its extreme left agenda and rake in millions in donations. Roll Call, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Google and all the others need to drop the SPLC as a consultant on “hate” groups.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    It isn’t the Supreme Court’s job to reflect on the “likely intent” of Congress. The justices can determine the intent of that body by reading the words our representatives put in the laws Congress passes. The intent of the Immigration and Nationality Act can be found in its text. This is why every conservative in the nation should be grateful for the outcome of 2016. Donald Trump is the reason Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are on the Court.

    At the dawn of the 2020 presidential campaign, we can already see what's coming, the contrast in tone between "news" coverage of Trump and the bus full of his Democratic opponents. It's going to be just preposterous. It will have all the fairness and balance of a waiter asking you if you'd like to dine on filet mignon or ingest rat poison. Bernie, Biden, Beto and all the rest. It doesn't matter. They're all fantastic. Win or lose, they'll each get a participation trophy.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    So-called progressive egalitarians transformed the idea of an elite college degree from a reflection of wide reading, inductive thinking, and scientific and mathematical literacy into a mere cattle brand, a showy trademark that advertised social-justice virtue and provided entrée into the well-paying capitalist rat race. Yet once politics serves as such a blanket exemption for institutions, then it’s no surprise that the institutions ignore or even normalize fraud, racial and class discrimination, and consumer misinformation.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    In his ongoing desperation to seize attention from his wife, who is constantly in the public eye, Kelllyanne Conway's husband -- George Conway -- is now telling us Trump has... wait for it... a "narcissistic personality disorder." At first glance, George Conway would seem to be seriously misogynistic, unable to deal with a wife far more famous than he. If so, he needs to grow up and shut up. He could at least wait until Trump was out of office and Kellyanne was back at her day job.

  • The Editors, National Review

    The Constitution hosts an outline for national action, and a blueprint for localism; and serves as a vehicle for the majority, while including guarantees that the most significant decisions must be broadly agreed upon. The Electoral College is one of the many finely tuned institutions within the charter that have ensured stability and continuity in America for more than two centuries. To destroy it in a hail of platitudes, civic ignorance, and old-fashioned political pique would be a disastrous mistake.

  • Mark Tapscott, The Epoch Times

    Among Nancy Pelosi’s first moves as Speaker of the House was creating the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, but making the House more transparent—and thus more accountable to voters—got lost somewhere along the way. Political strategists from across the ideological spectrum expressed disappointment with the committee’s early performance. “The entire scope of the purposes of the committee is subject to potential abuse unless its work is done with great transparency,” warned Mark Fitzgibbons.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Undeniably, atrocities that exceed in bloodshed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre by Al Capone’s gang, where seven men were stood against a wall in a Chicago garage and executed, have become all too common. But the atrocities seized upon by the left as most representative are those that conform to a vision, a narrative, a pre-existing script. This preconceived idea is that America is a hotbed of white nationalism where the worst crimes are committed by white racists. And this is a myth.

  • Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

    Because the Left can’t win in the marketplace of ideas, they are attempting to shut down their critics, to label opponents “fascists” or “white supremacists,” to exercise totalitarian control over public discourse in the same way left-wing professors and student “Antifa” mobs now control university campuses. Tucker Carlson understands this, and his response to the Left’s smear tactics has been to call them out by name and expose them in front of his 3 million viewers. He’s winning, and I’d say this is driving his enemies crazy, but the Left has never been entirely sane.
