  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    If confirmed, Tom Price will be the best qualified HHS secretary in a generation. His nomination has been received enthusiastically by the health care industry. Moreover, unlike Kathleen Sebelius and Sylvia Burwell, he spent twenty years actually treating patients. He knows the system and why Obamacare isn’t working. If the Democrats successfully Bork him, it means that they can’t be trusted with even a modicum of power.

  • Hans Von Spakovsky and John Fund, Wall Street Journal

    How common is this? If only we knew. Political correctness has squelched probes of noncitizen voting, so most cases are discovered accidentally instead of through a systematic review of election records. The bottom line is that the honor system doesn’t work. There are people—like those caught voting illegally—who are willing to exploit these weaknesses that damage election integrity.

  • Tony Perkins, CNS News

    Bullying Christians may be a favorite strategy of the left—but it’s not necessarily an effective one. Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s popular show “Fixer Upper” may be sending that message without ever opening their mouths.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    I believe the limitation is constitutionally valid. Since it is not effective policy, I would prefer to see Congress repeal it; and at a minimum Congress should waive it so the highly deserving General Mattis may serve as secretary of defense. I believe, however, that the waiver is necessary.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    Democrats are, indeed, the old fogeys of politics, honed in the crucible of 1968 and seemingly stuck there for the last 48 years, never revising a single thought, not even now that Tom Hayden is dead, except for the short period when Newt Gingrich put an economic gun to Bill Clinton's head and things got better for a while.

  • Susan Ferrechio, Washington Examiner

    The more concentrated caucus of liberals remained loyal to Pelosi, who, as the congresswoman representing San Francisco, is among the most left-leaning lawmakers in Congress and championed President Obama's liberal agenda during the two years when Congress and the White House were in Democratic hands, from 2009-11.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    “In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” So said Winston Churchill, the grandmaster of fake news.

  • W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

    Trump's approach is reminiscent of Pat Buchanan's 1996 advice to the Republican Party: "Marry the growth agenda of Ronald Reagan to the America First philosophy of the four men whose faces are carved on Mount Rushmore — and the future is ours." It is too soon to know what the future holds for Trump, but his sales pitch for the next four years and beyond is already taking shape.

  • Conrad Black, National Review

    It is obvious to everyone except the myopic Washington press, fumbling about like punch-drunk prizefighters too often concussed to swing at a moving target accurately, that Donald Trump is preparing to come out of the gate like a fire engine and join Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and Ronald Reagan as a transformative president.

  • Mercedes Schlapp, Washington Times

    Mr. Trump’s latest triumph is an example of how he will lead. He is results-driven, an unconventional leader who refuses to accept business as usual and a slow-moving bureaucracy. The direct contact with businesses like Carrier shows how he can get results. His style of leadership is already forcing U.S. companies to re-evaluate their own plans and adjusting how they will do business.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it.

  • Kerry Pickett, Daily Caller

    The votes Americans cast for president and vice president three weeks ago cannot go into effect if electors, chosen by the voters, are intimidated or threatened from casting their votes in the Electoral College on Dec. 19.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    The ancient Greeks taught us that arrogance brings payback, that nothing is sure in a fickle universe, that none of us can be judged successful and happy until we die, and that moderation and humility alone protect us from own darker sides. In 2016, what could never have happened usually did.

  • Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal

    The Trump transition has been talking to and appointing some of the most accomplished and serious individuals in Republican and conservative politics. Donald Trump isn’t pulling rabbits out of a hat. Somebody at team Trump has a first-rate Rolodex.

  • Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

    The familiar partisan lines of the past 20 years have been redrawn, and now we have a more downscale Republican Party and a Democratic Party confined to its coastal and campus cocoons. We'll see how that works out.
