First Impression: House GOP Tax Plan

The cost of government is not what it taxes, it is what it spends. The GOP tax plan is a start, but not a particularly bold or ambitious start, and it is only one part of a pro-growth economic formula. Spending has yet to be dealt with.

Hillary Clinton, Alger Hiss and the Schism in the American Soul

Just as in the 1950s the American Left and the Democratic Party tried to convince their fellow citizens that the objective truth of Communist penetration of the American government did not exist, so today's Democrats maintain the lie that the Clintons have done nothing worth investigating.

Poll: 68% of Voters Say Dems Own Obamacare

David Catron, The American Spectator

No amount of propaganda will make voters believe President Trump or the GOP created this mess. In fact, their primary complaint about the Republicans is that they haven’t repealed Obamacare yet. The Democrats and their media co-conspirators should be grateful that only two-thirds of the voters blame them for the risibly titled “Affordable Care Act.”

DOJ Lifts Gag Order On Clinton - Uranium One Informant: What’s Next?

Now that the gag order has been lifted it is time for Attorney General Sessions to choose a side in the much larger question: Why was the nondisclosure agreement put in place to begin with, who demanded the informant sign it, and what was their relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton?

The Obama Administration’s Uranium One Scandal

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.

Uranium One Means Mueller Must Recuse Himself from Russia Probe

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

We have heard disturbing allegations of this for some time, via "Clinton Cash" and even from the New York Times, but the new disclosure that a 2009 FBI investigation of this possible nuclear deal uncovered kickbacks, money laundering, and bribes from the Russian company involved (Rosatom) and yet it still was given the go-ahead by the Obama administration is -- I can think of no better word -- appalling.  How could it have come to pass that this occurred?  Why are we supposed to believe anyone now?

Why Conservative Scott Pruitt Is Trump’s Best Cabinet Secretary

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.

Trump’s One Step At A Time Iran Policy Fails

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.

On Iran Trump’s Advisors Offer Dumb And Dumber Options

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.

The Left’s Collusion with Harvey Weinstein

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The fleshy, repellent, sinister look of Harvey Weinstein, akin to the brutal indifference on the face of an overfed badger before devouring his prey, is proof of the unity between body and soul. If beauty adorns virtue, ugliness adorns vice. The horror stories about Weinstein continue to multiply and now include tales of criminal flashing and sexual assault. Out of the mushrooming scandal has come a blast of dirt, from which particles are settling on top officials in the Democratic Party, starting with the Clintons and the Obamas.

Conservative Outsider Senate Candidates Breaking Fundraising Records

While fundraising support for the Republican establishment is drying-up due to the failure of Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders to produce on their campaign promises, two of the most promising Republican outsiders, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Wisconsin’s Leah Vukmir, are reporting record-breaking support.

Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

“I think major donors are tired of writing checks to a do-nothing Congress,” Roy Bailey, an influential, Dallas-based GOP donor told POLITICO, and he's not the only one who has closed his wallet to the Republican establishment.

Time for Trump to Decertify the Iran Deal

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

In normal times, devoid of mass murderers and endless natural disasters, the looming October 15 certification decision on this deal would be front and center in the national consciousness. It still should be because, ultimately, it is even more important than hurricanes and psychopathic killers. It's about nuclear war. The biggest mistake of the Obama years was not the Affordable Care Act but the Iran deal, which has already resulted in massive catastrophe, causing irreparable damage.

Will Trump Cave to McMaster, Tillerson and Mattis on Obamabomb Deal?

Our take is that the “decertify, but stay in strategy” is a scam engineered by National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and his Obama holdovers on the National Security Council staff to rope-a-dope Trump into leaving the Obamabomb agreement in place until a President who shares the Obama worldview can be elected and inaugurated.

VP Pence’s Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers Is Our New Hero

Vice President Pence's Chief of Staff Nick Ayers told a group of major donors to the RNC they should call members of Congress and tell them if they don't pass Trump's agenda "we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Enters Indiana Senate Race

Mike Braun is a smart guy and successful businessman. He will be a formidable candidate if he can stay the course of pushing the Trump MAGA agenda, while avoiding a mudwrestling match with Congressmen Rokita and Messer.

Even UN Says Iran Not Complying With Obama Nuclear Weapons Deal

President Trump must not bow to pressure to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear weapons deal. It is time to withdraw from the Obamabomb deal completely and prepare every available option to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Conservative National Security Experts Urge President Trump to Withdraw From Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran

Forty-five conservative national security experts, including CHQ Editor George Rasley, many of whom held senior positions in the nuclear weapons, arms control, nonproliferation and intelligence fields, sent a letter to President Trump endorsing a comprehensive plan, drafted by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, to withdraw the United States from the Obama - Iran nuclear weapons deal.

A Brief History Of North Korean Diplomatic Name Calling

The past two days of establishment meltdown show just how little the Democrats and the Left-leaning foreign policy establishment understand the North Koreans and the language of their diplomacy, where name-calling is a highly refined art.
