Far-Left billionaire George Soros has restructured his Open Society foundations and his investment firm to put $18 billion into financing a revolution to fundamentally transform America from a constitutional republic into a socialist oligarchy.

So, who’s crazy? President Trump, who is trying to undo the national security disasters shady Senator Bob Corker facilitated on behalf of Barack Obama, or establishment Republicans, like Michael Gerson, who take the side of the shady Senator from Tennessee?

Mitch McConnell may believe history and the public is in his corner but Americans are on the side of a government staying within the bounds of the Constitution and refraining from interfering in their lives. There’s only one way to win a war and it’s not by leading from behind.

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.

While the salacious details of the Weinstein and Menendez affairs have occupied the public mind a more important question is left unaddressed: What did the other Democrats know about these two corrupt sexual predators and when did they know it?

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.

As Democrats move further to the Left their demands for radical social change will continue to grow, and their readiness to achieve it through violent means will grow commensurately. Individual firearms ownership remains the one sure impediment to their ambitions.

The truth is grassroots backers of all stripes are becoming increasingly suspicious of the establishment elites of both parties, leaders who talk a good game and make loads of promises but never deliver on anything substantive. It’s so rotten not even blaming the Russians would work.

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.

    When Steve Bannon speaks of "primarying" politicians like this, he isn't really being a bully or an extremist, as the media likes to paint him.  He is actually making quite a bit of sense.  Trump appears to know this and, from the look on his face at Monday's joint press conference, McConnell does too.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Amidst the flurry of demands that Harvey Weinstein be extinguished from the liberal memory, Democrats keep turning up at institutions and award ceremonies named after serial exploiters of women. The obituarists of Harvey Weinstein will keep the progressive memory of Bill and Teddy alive forever.

    "People like McCain and Graham, who parade as conservatives but are not really conservative, they need to be called out because they are bankrupting our country," Paul said Tuesday. Paul added that Graham was part of the "problem" in Washington, D.C., and has contributed to the national debt because of his willingness to increase military spending.

    Slowly and by hit and miss, Americans are learning that they do not need to go to a theater to see another Harvey Weinstein movie; or watch network news or read traditional journalism; or, on NFL Sunday, see more zillionaires in their luxury boxes above grow giddy as their employees below score, only to see a showboating player kneel on all fours to mimic a urinating dog, which is apparently less offensive than standing for the national anthem.

    Politicians exploit public ignorance. Few areas of public ignorance provide as many opportunities for political demagoguery as taxation. Today some politicians argue that the rich must pay their fair share and label the proposed changes in tax law as tax cuts for the rich. Let's look at who pays what, with an eye toward attempting to answer this question: Are the rich paying their fair share?

    Johnny Carson once said, “I would love to have taken on Billy Graham. But I’m on TV five nights a week; I have nothing to gain by it and everything to lose.” Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, competing for the crown in a much-diminished late-night kingdom, beg to differ, and unfortunately, they’re right.

    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."

  • William Murchison, The American Spectator

    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!

  • Jennifer Kerns, Washington Examiner

    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.
