Choosing conservative Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as his EPA Administrator was one of President Trump’s more inspired choices. Through one brief memo Pruitt has made it clear the days of the government kowtowing to the environmental lobby are over.

Unless NFL players can articulate what their end-goal is in all of this, they’ll continue to be shunned and the game will suffer irreparable damage. Colin Kaepernick’s “collusion” lawsuit isn’t going to help matters – and time is running out for the purveyors of protest to figure it out.

President Trump’s step-by-step approach to trying to repair the follies of Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran looks good on paper. However, it fails because to succeed it relies upon two feckless partners: the U.S. Congress and our European allies.

The greatest political scandal of the 21st Century isn’t that the Democrats allowed, or perhaps even facilitated the penetration of the House IT network by a ring of operatives with known ties to hostile Islamist interests, it is that Speaker Paul Ryan and his leadership team have done everything they can to cover it up.

Yesterday, 69 members of the House of Representatives, including our friends Representatives Louie Gohmert, Jeb Hensarling, Justin Amash, Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows voted against a disaster relief bill that goes far beyond disaster relief to throw good money after bad in federal subsidies and what amount to welfare payments.

If our diseased culture includes the Boy Scouts now admitting girls and pro athletes simply refusing to stand during the national anthem, a big chunk of the population will decide it ain’t worth having their kids involved in these endeavors at all. Everyone loses; no one wins.

Yesterday, I, along with Ken Cuccinelli II, Brent Bozell, Jenny Beth Martin, David Bozell, and Adam Brandon, told Mitch McConnell that due to his incompetence and betrayals it was time for him to resign as Senate Majority Leader, I urge you to add your voice to the thousands of other conservatives who demand McConnell must go by adding your signature to our letter.

The inevitable result of continuing to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear weapons deal, and allowing their continued nuclear weapons and missile development cooperation, is an anti-American world dominated by two nuclear-armed rogue states; North Korea and Iran.

A host of conservative candidates are running against the GOP establishment as much as their liberal Democrat opponents. Should they succeed in reaching the upper chamber President Trump won’t need to use his “pen” nearly as often to accomplish what Congress won’t give him.

    Can today's young women in Hollywood count on an anti-Weinstein "choir" to "resonate" around the entertainment industry? The Catholic Church has taken dramatic steps to prevent the abuse of children. It is Hollywood's turn to put its money where its mouth has been.

    "Why is this a populist revolt? You guys have more common sense, more understanding of what we need to do. More understanding. And the first order of business is to undo all the damage of globalism, right? That allowed Silicon Valley, and Wall Street, and Hollywood, and the imperial capital right here in Washington D.C. and London and Beijing and Davos -- the party of Davos. To undo globalism."

    Much good has come of breaking down no-longer-relevant barriers. The prime ministership of Margaret Thatcher comes instantly to mind. But does eradication of dated distinctions argue for the eradication of “inequalities” wherever they exist, insofar as law and politics are up to the task? I wouldn’t say so for a minute. I’d say instead the reverse. It’s time for distinction-makers of every kind to come out of the closet and affirm that we’re not all the same. No democracy worth its salt should say otherwise. Alas!

    The portrait of his life fails to reveal an upbringing that is anywhere close to the plight he claims to feel for inner-city kids today. Nothing could be more deceptive than for a wealthy man who hails from a lifetime of comfortable means to feign that he understands the plight of inner-city kids and worse, to stir up strife among his nation in doing so.

    We do not live there. Few Americans are aware of what is going on there. Even fewer care. Our erstwhile allies in the Middle East naturally want us to fight their 21st-century wars, as the Brits got us to help fight their 20th-century wars. But Donald Trump was not elected to do that. Or so some of us thought.

  • John Fund, National Review

    What’s clear is that the depictions of Kurz and Strache as Islamophobic, intolerant, and radical failed spectacularly. In country after country, the Left is finding it will have to come up with a strategy beyond name-calling if it is serious about winning back lost voters.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    What Trump has actually done is end the illegal payoffs without which insurance companies have no rational choice but to jack up premiums or flee the Obamacare exchanges. The culprits here are the charlatans who gave us Obamacare. To portray Trump as the bad guy is not merely fake news. It’s an out-and-out lie.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    The Obama administration quite literally stole money from the Treasury to bribe insurers with these illegal CSR payments. This was done over the objections of Congress as well as the reservations of Obama’s own IRS officials. Now that he has made good his escape, his accomplices at the state level are left holding an empty bag. If Obamacare is indeed the law of the land, let the Democrat AGs live with it as written.

  • John Fund, Fox News

    President Trump can follow up on his cancellation of the bailout to Big Insurance by telling members of Congress his next step will be to zero out their exemption, an action which would throw both members and staff on the individual ObamaCare exchanges. Now that would finally put a fire under Congress for real action.

    Hillary Clinton has been running around the country, promoting her book while blaming everyone and everything conceivable for her defeat and acting as if she might decide to run again. What to do? How to shut this woman up and finally make her go away, maybe let the Democrats win again? One way might be to clean house. The long and cozy relationship between Weinstein and the Clintons is well known. Nothing could hurt "feminist" Hillary more than to be publicly linked once again with a rapist. Yuck.

    For the first time in a very long time, Pennsylvania will have four open contests in the state, four seats held by Republicans who have vacated their seats either for retirement (Charlie Dent), scandal (Tim Murphy), presidential appointment (Tom Marino), or seeking higher office (Lou Barletta). All of this makes for the perfect window into what might be going on in the rest of the country.

    History has taught us that amnesty begets more amnesty. It is time for the Republican leadership in Congress to stop always losing yards. They must tackle our immigration problem. If they can’t stand up for immigration in the national interest, perhaps Republicans should take a knee on amnesty. The only way to truly put Americans first and get across the goal line is to pass a true immigration reform package like the one President Trump sent to Capitol Hill.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Reagan was, as Trump claimed to be, an anti-interventionist. Reagan had no wish to be a war president. His dream was to rid the world of nuclear weapons. This does not sound like Trump in October 2017. Steve Bannon may see the 25th Amendment, where a Cabinet majority may depose a president, as the great threat to Trump. But it is far more likely that a major war would do for the Trump presidency and his place in history what it did for Presidents Wilson, Truman, LBJ and George W. Bush.

    Throughout PILF’s research in the Garden State, we’ve learned that roughly 75 percent of non-citizens stuck in the voter registration system didn’t seek to register to vote. They were prompted to sign up at the DMV thanks to a Motor Voter law that often sees state officials pushing voter registration to anyone with a heartbeat. Aliens caught in this game of gotcha try to fix it as soon as they try to naturalize, because registering to vote can lead to deportation.

    President Trump intends to end insurance subsidies under Obamacare, a move that would likely result in lawsuits and put pressure on Congress to act. According to a statement Thursday evening from the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, the Trump administration is making the move based on guidance from the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, which have concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare.
