Trump Is Right: The Only Way To Win Is To Fight

Ever since Donald Trump won, the Leftist establishment has been acusing him of being divisive, so let us translate what that really means: Donald Trump is making it more difficult for Democrats to reduce your liberty, freedom, and rights and grow the power of the federal government, and they want him to be nice and let them win.

The Democrats’ Chaos Strategy Almost Worked In Florida

Conservatives must come to grips with the reality that for the new radical progressive Democratic Party politics is warfare, and the only rule in war is to win. Complying with all the laws and rules pre-election is a recipe for one-Party Democrat rule if there is no way to enforce those laws and rules post-election.

The Democrats’ Goal Is Election Chaos

Conservative observers of the post-Election Day chaos thhis year must understand that the mess is not due to incompetence. It is part of a larger, long term plan that has been executed by Democrats to move as many elections as possible into what our friend election lawyer J. Christian Adams calls “the margin of litigation.”

Trump Is Right: Honest Vote Count No Longer Possible

Activist judges and post-election lawsuits to “count every vote,” whether legal or not, have made a mockery of election laws and left any election decided within the margin of litigation to the whim of liberal judges, not the electorate. This is no way to govern.

Trump – Putin Summit Craziness

What Democrats, Trump critics like Senator John McCain, and Witch Hunters like Robert Mueller wanted President Trump to do would jeopardize the lives and safety of American military and intelligence officers around the world and make international relations infinitely more complex and difficult.

Trump Heads To NATO Summit With America First Agenda

President Trump’s recognition that the United States cannot and should not continue to subsidize the quality of life for our allies is hardly a conspiracy theory, but an overdue recognition that the Reagan defense build-up was expended long ago, and if the Western alliance is to be maintained, then all its beneficiaries must pay their share.

Agenda for the Trump-Putin Summit

The president’s willingness to meet with nations at odds with America deserves praise. He need not befriend foreign leaders. However, he should communicate with them. If nothing else, the president needs to ensure that both Americans and Russians better understand each other and the issues which unite as well as divide us.

Why Don’t Europeans Provide Troops for Europe’s Defense?

Long after the close of World War II, the Western Europeans have recovered economically, overturned alien communist regimes, and absorbed Central and Eastern European states into the European project. Collectively they vastly outstrip the remains of the Soviet Union, so why won't they defend themselves?

Make a Deal with Russia: Neutralize Ukraine, End NATO Expansion

Taking NATO membership off the table would remove Moscow’s incentive to keep the Ukrainian conflict alive. Ukraine could develop economically and politically as it wished. Sanctions could end, encouraging economic integration from Europe through Ukraine onto Russia.

Vice President Pence versus President Trump on Foreign Policy

Washington should stop thinking of containment. Rather, the Trump administration should begin disengagement, devolving onto the Europeans responsibility for their defense.

Who Fears Russia? Not the Europeans!

Last year NATO Europe devoted an estimated $265 billion to defense, almost four times Moscow’s expenditures of $68 billion. The Russian Republic is not the Soviet Union reborn.

How to Read This Year’s Special Elections

Michael Barone, Wall Street Journal

The opposition party has certain inherent advantages in special elections. It can better adapt to local terrain and stress issues on which the government is locally unpopular. It can also ask voters to voice a protest that stops short of turning the whole government over to the other side. So far, the specials show that Trump-brand Republicanism is unpopular with high-education voters and has made zero inroads among Trump opponents. Since most high-education districts are already Democratic, that’s interesting, but not earth-shaking.

Carpetbaggers Come Back To Georgia

Georgia suffered once before when carpetbaggers invaded the Peach State, and it will suffer again, should carpetbagging Democrat Jon Ossoff and his liberal Hollywood friends gain the victory in today’s Congressional District 6 special election.

President Trump Should Give NATO to the Europeans

NATO should be turned over to the Europeans, allowing them to handle their defense as they desire. This would not mean cutting relations. But it does mean Washington should stop subsidizing its wealthier cousins when the latter don’t feel like paying for their own defense.

Hillary Clinton Never Met A War She Didn’t Want Other Americans To Fight

Of Hillary Clinton's belligerent record Donald Trump observed: “Sometimes it seemed like there wasn’t a country in the Middle East that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to invade, intervene in, or topple.”

Expanding NATO Makes America Less Secure

Donald Trump has questioned whether we are getting value for the defense dollars committed to NATO, CHQ contributor Doug Bandow makes the case that expanding NATO has made America less secure.

Why is America Adding Montenegro to NATO?

NATO originally was created to act as a firebreak to war. Current policy threatens to turn it into a transmission belt of war. After getting through the entire Cold War without a shooting war with Moscow, why would Washington take action which essentially would force Russia to strike back militarily?

Two States Where Black Voters Helped the GOP

Erick Erickson, Red State

In IL, prominent black ministers around the state encouraged congregants to abandon Gov. Quinn and support the Repub. In GA, largely black precincts didn't see the turnout expected. Experts say black moms didn't want D's to nix charter school funding.

A Football Lesson For The GOP

Republicans won't win back the Senate or other key races if they take a knee or throw the ball out of bounds on amnesty for illegal aliens, Obama’s contempt for the Constitution, Congress’ out-of-control spending and how to effectively confront the great national security threats facing the country today.

Let's Reserve Costly Prison Beds For Dangerous Offenders

Grover Norquist and Derek Monson , Deseret News

Utah is embarking on an effort to reform its criminal justice system by convening a Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice. Right on Crime signatories Grover Norquist and Derek Monson make clear that this is a positive first step towards criminal justice reforms that increase public safety while cutting costs.
