The frame up and prosecution on false evidence of General Michael Flynn carries the same stench that many racist and political prosecutions of the past carry – the only difference is this time it is the radical Anti-Trump Resistance that finds it is in “the public interest” to railroad an innocent man they don’t like because his views threaten their power.

For some reason Memorial Day weekend turned into a bash Kayleigh McEnany fest with former journalist turned spokesman for elitist snobbery Chris Wallace and alleged conservative and serial failure Jonah Goldberg acting as spokesmen for the “Ben Dover” form of conservatism, which allows one to wear a bow tie and smugly assume moral superiority while taking it in the shorts from the Left.

Democrats and Republicans will claim that their governors’ coronavirus responses helped save lives, but both sides can’t be right and statistics don’t lie. Now more than ever we see evidence that elections have consequences. Think about it before you cast your vote this November. The life you save might be your own.

As we honor our fallen on Memorial Day 2020 let us especially remember those who have fallen in our wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and unacknowledged battlefields throughout the world. Let us honor the ideas for which they fell and resolve to demand that, in remembrance of their sacrifice, today’s politicians and generals have the integrity and moral clarity to openly speak the truth about who our enemies are and what the wars are all about – and that is defeating Islamism and preserving our own liberty.

No matter the dearth of local COVID cases or the establishment’s strict safety precautions, expanded unemployment benefits, including a $600 a week COVID "bonus," have incentivized some employees to refuse to return to work. Now, a group of conservative leaders has penned an open letter to Republicans in Congress and President Trump urging them to fix the policies that encourage workers to stay off the job.

It doesn’t take a genius to wonder why Democrats are working so hard to keep the economy closed -- they’re doing it so people will blame Trump and Republicans for the worst of the damage. With COVID-19 cases and deaths steadily declining, it will be much harder for the bigger government party to get its way. Have a pleasant and meaningful Memorial Day.

Since 2013, through a sweetheart deal negotiated by then-Vice President Joe Biden, Chinese companies have been allowed to participate in U.S. stock and bond exchanges without having to fully comply with the same Sarbanes-Oxley Act accounting practices and risk disclosure required of American companies. Now the Committee on the Present Danger: China has launched a campaign demanding the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board:cancel the agreement.

Contrary to what Democrats clearly want – which is to increase the economic damage and misery – President Trump has begun to implement a bold plan of regulatory relief to jumpstart the economy and get Americans back to work. If if your Governor still has your state lockeddown call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

Every day it seems we’re awakening to a new set of surprises during the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic panic. Recent graduates will have their own special challenges in the coming weeks and months and they don’t need more fearmongering. Now more than ever, we need the optimism of President Trump.

Neil W. McCabe’s Pulitzer Prize-worthy reporting for The Ohio Star demonstrates once again that #Obamagate is real and adds another element of proof to our contention that Obama was personally out to get Mike Flynn. It remains to be seen whether any of these names will resurface as part of the Barrr – Durham investigation, but one thing is clear – the list of Treasury officials who had no business looking at General Flynn’s financial data includes a number of high level Democrat political operators with close ties to former President Obama.

Monday Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray detailed developments in the post-attack investigation of last year’s Muslim terrorist attack at Florida’s Pensacola Naval Air Station. It will surprise no one who follows such matters that the FBI discovered the Muslim gunman who killed three at the naval air station last December had “significant ties” to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

Both parties’ prospects depend on being able to turn out their bases and here’s thinking Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will encounter more than their share of resistance from the Bernie Sanders revolutionary faction. Much damage was done during the party primaries and won’t be repaired no matter how many endorsements flow in the interim.

    All roads lead back to the politicians. The officials who imposed state and local lockdowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic ignored science and relied on charlatans like Neil Ferguson and the same jackleg models that predicted bird flu would cause 150 million deaths and projected 2.2 million coronavirus deaths in the United States. Now the models tell us that there will be a summer surge if we don’t stay home like good little girls and boys. This nonsense has nothing to do with science or public health. It is, as always, about politics and power. It’s time to come out and dare them to do something about it.

    If it is a contest between armed forces, America wins. We can impose our will on the country but cannot win their assent. They resist until we tire of trying to educate them. Historically, the Afghans are fundamentalist, tribal and impervious to foreign intervention. What will the Taliban do when we leave? They will not give up their dream of again ruling the Afghan people. And they will fight until they have achieved that goal and their idea of victory: dominance. And if 100,000 Americans fighting beside the Afghan army could not force them to surrender, then why should they settle for a half-loaf compromise now?

    The Trump revolution, for all its progress, clearly has more work to do. For by hook and crook, the protected managed to hang on to power. This time they call themselves “essential.” Among the many actions governors and mayors took in the last three months, the decisions about working, shopping, swimming and even praying were hugely consequential. They were also arbitrary and often foolish. The arbitrary distinction between essential and nonessential recalls the gag about the difference between a recession and a depression. A recession is when your neighbor loses his job, a ­depression is when you lose your job.

    Golden State Democrats plan to use the two-thirds control they have in the legislature to push through a November ballot measure asking voters to end the ban on racial preferences. When Justice Sandra Day O’Connor provided the critical vote upholding the constitutionality of the University of Michigan’s racial preferences in 2003, she wrote that the Court expected that affirmative action would need to continue for only another quarter-century. Liberals in California’s one-party state are on an ideological crusade to continue a racial spoils system forever. They should realize how the issue could blow up in their face.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    Election officials in swing states have hatched new plans to push mail-in voting for the 2020 election. This is not a remotely honest universe. These very same people who are driven by a demonic possession to destroy Mr. Trump, the very same people who will do anything to destroy integrity in American elections, now want to hand the entire 2020 election over to the United States Postal Service. Gee, what could go wrong? These people do not labor under the false confidence that Mr. Trump cannot win. This time, they are armed with the knowledge that Mr. Trump can win. And there is nothing they will not do to stop him.

    Following the 2019 'Blue Wave' in Virginia elections, residents of Staunton, which is supported by private liberal arts college Mary Baldwin, came out in droves to support Republicans this week. Three Democratic council members lost to their Republican challengers in an unprecedented sweep by the GOP with a voter turn out that smashed previous election cycles. With Republican victories in California and Virginia already on the books for 2020, Democratic Party operatives will be forced to look at how to reach voters clearly frustrated with state lockdowns that are almost entirely perpetuated by Democratic governors.

    Red- and blue-state America was already divided before the coronavirus epidemic hit. Is there any agreement between them? Perhaps. Red-staters are not flocking to blue-state urban corridors, where the virus hit hardest. They are happy to live in less crowded places, have detached homes, and be free of government edicts that often make little sense other than to showcase the dictatorial powers of petty bureaucrats and local officials. Even blue-staters are beginning to see their mass transit, high-rise living, and clogged streets more as incubators of disease than as the circulatory system of an exciting, high-end life.

  • Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

    Victims are the aristocrats of 21st-century America. To be a victim is to be exempt from criticism, to be empowered with moral authority, so that anyone who refuses to kowtow to you is condemned as a racist, a sexist, or some other kind of bigot. Democrats have embraced this concept because it makes them feel good about themselves and also because they believe it can help them win elections. Competition is fierce, because there are too many victims and not enough gigs. Only a lucky few can be anointed “rising stars,” elected to the Aristocracy of Losers, and celebrated the way the liberal media celebrates Stacey Abrams.

    When it comes to Biden, it’s Ukraine, right? They’re the unreliable corrupt ones. Just because Joe plagiarized in law school and several times thereafter doesn’t mean he hasn’t suddenly turned into an honest man. Seemingly out of nowhere, more news has just come from Ukraine. It’s certain that Biden’s “Ukraine problem” is not going to go away. Ditto his China problem, which also involves Hunter. Many claims were made that Trump would be in Putin’s pocket were he elected U.S. president. The reality is, for similar reasons with considerably more actual evidence, electing Biden would be far more dangerous to our country.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    The big problem with the idea of “civility” is that the people honestly advocating it do not understand that real civility can exist only after victory. It is a construct that allows people to work together on contentious issues only after the really contentious issues – like who will be impoverished, enslaved and/or killed – are solved. Civility is not an end in and of itself. Rather, it is a means to facilitate the functioning of a civil society. So, spare us tiresome demands for unilateral rhetorical disarmament. If you want “civility,” you need a society where the left has been crushed. Until then...

    Feminist author Susan Faludi claimed feminists never said you should believe all women. Feminist hypocrisy on public figures accused of adultery, sexual harassment, and rape isn't a canard. It's been a reality since the 1990s. Faludi attacks conservative media because we're the ones who keep pointing it out. We're decrying the feminist habit of excusing the Bill Clintons and slut-shaming the accusers of Democrats. We're the ones asking unwelcome questions such as "Why hasn't Christine Blasey Ford said a word about Tara Reade?" We also provide the answer: Because Ford knows the hypocritical feminist media won't ask her.

    Even conceding the American media’s hatred of Trump, you might assume the deaths and devastation caused by the coronavirus would at least lead them to view China’s denials of any wrongdoing with suspicion. If you made that assumption, you would be wrong. For the left, Trump and America are to blame. That’s where they begin and end. No other living Republican would dare to face off with China if it meant also standing up to the Times, The Washington Post, CNN and the establishment of both parties. Were it not for Trump, the WHO still would be a revered institution instead of being unmasked as China’s gofer.

    Powell summarizes Sullivan’s errant behavior by using Chief Justice John Roberts’ well-known baseball analogy: "This is an umpire who has decided to steal public attention from the players and focus it on himself. He wants to pitch, bat, run bases and play shortstop. In truth, he is way out in left field.” Powell not only asks the Court of Appeals to order Sullivan to dismiss the prosecution, but she also asks the court to assign another judge to the case for any final proceedings. The interests of fundamental fairness and the objective, nonpartisan administration of justice favor granting both of those requests.

  • R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

    Who are the people to be indicted for leaking the contents of the Flynn-Kislyak call all those years ago? Well, Richard Grenell, the national intelligence director, just supplied us with a list of likely culprits. They are people who submitted unmasking requests regarding the name of Mr. Flynn. It is not a long list, and it includes several very famous names, for instance: former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, former national intelligence director James Clapper, and former vice president Joe Biden. Yes, Joe Biden is on the list. Say it isn’t so, Joe. You were just getting your Basement Campaign underway.

    President Trump, speaking in Pennsylvania, took aim at Joe Biden’s mental faculties, at one point claiming the Democrat “has absolutely no idea what’s happening.” Trump’s visit to Pennsylvania comes just as Gov. Tom Wolf dictated a plan that rolls out selective openings of the state—a move that has frustrated many rural counties that have been told to remain closed despite a moderately low number of cases and deaths. A new poll conducted by SSRS for CNN showed that nationwide, Trump trails Biden, but in the battleground states, which include Pennsylvania, 52 percent favored Trump, and 45 percent favored Biden.
