The trillion dollar myth

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

With long-term growth of GDP of 3 percent all the entitlement deficits begin to disappear as well. This is because tax revenues overwhelm spending over time with 3 percent GDP growth. It’s called the power of compound interest. The point here is that CBO’s creaky computer models begin with the firm conviction that Trumponomics won’t work and then surprise, it cranks out a conclusion that Mr. Trump’s policies won’t work. This is what passes for rigorous analysis these days.

Conservatives Question Possible Syria Strike

The Constitution gives the war-making power to Congress, not the executive branch. "Promising war by tweet, insults not only the Constitution but every soldier who puts their life on the line,” Senator Rand Paul tweeted, referring to President Trump’s tweet singling out Russia for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

John Bolton Appointment Divides Conservatives

Criticisms of the appointment of John Bolton as National Security Advisor have been strongly rebutted by a long list of national defense conservatives who reject the idea that everyone who wants to rebuild the military Obama intentionally hollowed out should automatically be dismissed as a “neocon.”

Viguerie Joins 92 Conservative Leaders Backing Pompeo For Secretary Of State

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie and 92 leaders of CAP have issued a statement backing Mike Pompeo for Secretary for State saying, "Pompeo’s vast experience across multiple levels of government has demonstrated his commitment to protecting America’s interests, and make him uniquely qualified to lead the State Department through complex and challenging times."

U.S. Sells Out Kurds, Reminding America Why it Should Just Stay Home

Despite working with the Kurds against ISIS, the administration has no stomach for a military game of chicken with Turkey. Which means the U.S. almost certainly would abandon the Kurds again if the Turks attack Manbij.

President Trump Signs New Transgender Military Ban

President Trump has signed a new memorandum that bans most individuals suffering from gender dysphoria from US military service. The new directive adopts recommendations from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that "transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition" cannot serve.

The Folly Of Peace Without Victory In Afghanistan

The Taliban in Afghanistan and ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and its offshoots elsewhere around the world, do not desire any kind of “peace” except the peace of the Ummah – the peace of the worldwide reign of Islam.

It’s Up to Veterans to Reclaim Religious Liberty in Military Stolen by Obama

Secularists like former President Obama and atheists like Mikey Weinstein live to destroy this scared bond between God, Jesus, Chaplains and our men and women in uniform, and our history, and the damage they and their legions caused over the last eight long years in power was immense.

Outsider Mike Braun Makes Trade Issue In Indiana’s GOP Senate Primary

Conservative Republican and U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun may be the first GOP senate candidate to embrace President Trump’s trade policies as a campaign issue in a Republican Primary by attacking his opponents in a new ad titled "Made in America."

Hillary Clinton And Our Hypersonic Missile Gap With Russia

Russia's hypersonic missile program was born at Skolkovo a vast Russian industrial espionage program with its genesis at the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, and Russian oligarch Vekselberg. It is driven by donors to the Clinton Foundation and was championed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Are We Losing The Middle East War To Iran?

If our goal is to block Iran’s aspirations in Syria, but neither the United States nor Israel has been able to stop the proliferation of Iranian bases in Syria, then it looks to us like we, and the Israelis, are losing. The question for Gen. Votel and other commanders then becomes, if we are presently losing, what’s it going to take to win?

CIDs Dangerous Anti-Fourth Amendment Weapons of the Administrative State

Civil Investigative Demands have become weapons of the administrative state. They have even exceeded their New Deal origins, and have become perhaps the most dangerous institutionalized violation of the Bill of Rights.

The Real Russian Disaster

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The verdict on Russia, the Obama administration, and the Clinton campaign is now becoming clearer. At very little cost, Russia has embarrassed American democracy, played the media for the partisans they are, completely discredited the Clinton campaign and name, and created a year of nonstop hysteria to undermine the Trump administration. And it is not over yet.

Trump and Obama: Who's really tougher on Russia?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

There are Republicans who would like to see the Trump administration be tougher still on Russia. Long before the 2016 election, they urged Bush and Obama to take a harder line against Putin. There is still much that President Trump could do. But when it comes to comparing Trump and Obama, those Republicans ask that Americans look at the whole picture, and not just a fight over Facebook ads.

The Paradoxes of the Mueller Investigation

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Investigating any possible crimes committed by members of the Clinton campaign or the Obama administration apparently is taboo, given the exalted status of both. But every time Mueller seeks to find incidental wrongdoing by those around Trump, he only makes the case stronger that behavior by those involved in the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration should be investigated.

Fighting Russian Interference In American Politics

It shouldn’t take a Special Counsel investigation to identify and expose Russian activities we know have been going on for a century.  It is time for America to get back in the counterintelligence fight by cleaning house and getting rid of incompetent counterintelligence operatives such as the FBI's Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it is time for Congress, as it did with the HUAC investigations, to plumb the full depth of Russian efforts to sow discord in our country.

Obama’s real debt and deficit legacy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Mr. Obama’s failed presidency is being falsely lionized as a deficit cutter. The new spin from the left is that Mr. Obama saved the U.S. from a second great depression, when in fact he gave America the weakest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression. He also left Mr. Trump with an economy that was crawling at 1.6 percent— which is why many people thought we were headed to another recession. No one thinks that today.

Is It Time To Shut Down The FBI?

It's time for radical change at the Department of Justice where Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been hobbled by careerist underlings, such as FBI Director Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who have worked harder at protecting their fellow careerists and their institutional turf than they have worked at protecting the American people.
