Public colleges and universities that violate the First Amendment should lose eligibility for Title IV federal student loans and grants, say more than 100 scholars and writers in a new statement, released today by the National Association of Scholars (NAS). To add your name to the list of those demanding the freedoms protected by the First Amendment be respected by public colleges and universities please click this link.

Our friend Kelly Monroe Kullberg, founder and spokesperson for the American Association of Evangelicals (AAE) and a moving force behind Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration (EBI) has just released, in association with Old Testament Professor James Hoffmeier, a must-read e-book, Wise Welcome: A Bible Study on Immigration. (You may download a free copy through this link.)

While it’s true any natural born American citizen over the age of 35 (and having lived in the U.S. for 14 years) is eligible to be president, it takes a lot more than a few interesting personal chits to realize the dream. Pete Buttigieg and Marianne Williamson are not typical Democrats -- and their candidacies are a punchline.

We have been going through the Mueller Report and will have a few more things to say about it as we complete our review and analysis, but first let’s go over what we see as the biggest hole in the Report. The biggest hole is the Report’s utter failure to address the validity of the “predicate” to the entire Trump investigation.

President Trump’s economic policies are working too well for Romney to credibly criticize them and his border policy is too popular with the Republican Party’s base to risk criticizing. So, all Romney has left is to make Trump himself the object of his disapproval and so keep the Republican establishment’s anti-Trump resistance alive.

Thankfully no one pays any attention to what Mitt Romney thinks these days. Perhaps he should realize it and cease taking cheap shots at a president who is keeping the party’s promises and faces what is sure to be a serious leftist socialist Democrat challenger next year. Can’t Mitt just shut up?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already expressed opposition to Cuccinelli, who as president of the Senate Conservatives Fund led primary challenges to K Street-controlled, establishment Republicans. McConnell, therefore, may have a grudge, but one not based in Cuccinelli’s fitness for the job.

Attorney General William Barr has ruled that some illegal aliens who are about to be deported must be held without bond as their deportation cases play out. An alien who is transferred from expedited removal proceedings to full removal proceedings is ineligible for release on bond, Barr wrote.

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

Republicans didn’t lose the House and a number of winnable Senate races in 2018 because they didn’t know how to use smartphone apps to run a precinct operation. They lost because they failed to produce on the Trump agenda and failed to brand the Democrats as dangerous anti-constitutional socialists.

According to liberals, Donald Trump has coarsened politics by hitting back and standing up for himself and his ideas, instead of stoically taking the pummeling they dish out. Now that Trump has announced there are new rules to the game and he is going to hit back, there’s no end to the Liberal wailing.

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

    On impeachment, the Democrats are caught betweenScylla and Charybdis. The “news” media, the far left wing of their own caucus, and their most vocal paymaster want President Trump thrown over the side to appease the gods of the deep state. But the electorate isn’t there. The voters aren’t naïve enough to think Trump is as pure as the driven snow, but most have by now concluded that the nonstop calumny to which he has been subjected for the last three years is unfair at best. In the end, the Democrats don’t have any good choices.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    You must impeach President Trump today! And I am not saying that because I think it would be hilarious if you let the nimrods who actually run your shabby party lead you into a political disaster of epic proportions. I am not saying that because it would result in a crushing backlash in next year’s elections as the American people rebuke you Democrats for your gibbering insanity and asinine coup-plotting. My interest is totally in seeking justice n’ stuff. If you don’t impeach him, you hate justice. Don’t betray your party and America, Nancy. Impeach him. Do it now.

    Now in charge of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff has begun an all-new Trump-Russia investigation. As part of that, he has hired as an investigator former federal prosecutor Daniel Goldman, who just a few months ago said of the Steele dossier, "Nothing has been undermined thus far." Some Democrats, even those who have access to highly classified intelligence and should know better, will give up the dossier only when, as gun lovers used to say, you pry their cold, dead fingers from it. Mueller report or no Mueller report, for some high-ranking Trump adversaries, the dossier lives on.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    In practical terms, Trump should admit to himself that his policies are more popular than his personality. He can help his cause — and the country — by finalizing strong trade deals with China and Europe and keeping the pressure on North Korea and Iran — while keeping American soldiers out of big wars. The home front will be more difficult because Dems control the House, and their harassment will be impossible to ignore. But the president must resist the temptation to respond to every insult from Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters and Jerry Nadler and instead play the long, substantive game.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the “no-more-wars” theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia. Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president? Prediction: by the primaries of 2020, foreign policy will be front and center, and the Democratic Party will have captured the “no more wars” political high ground that candidate Donald Trump occupied in 2016.

  • Stephen Moore, Washington Times

    The solution is to tilt our immigration system away from extended family immigrants and more toward skills and merit. To put America first, it makes sense to give green cards to the immigrants who will do the most good for our country. President Trump wants to shift our visas system to emphasize skill and merit, and Congress should get behind him. Skill-based immigration is one of our best weapons to keep the American economy number one in the world and to ensure we never surrender technological dominance to the Chinese or other rising nations that want to knock America off our commanding economic heights.

    The longer the Democrats obsess over the Mueller report and the possibility of obstruction, the bigger hole they dig for themselves. By continuing their Trump/Russia obsession Democrats will only be calling more attention to the forthcoming Inspector General's report on the genesis of the investigation that is almost certain to point fingers in directions that will make them and their media friends uncomfortable. The potential for destroyed reputations at the least and incarcerations at the most is significant. Firings have already taken place.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    In the end, the Mueller probe was an investigation looking for a crime. Thus, it produced nothing but a few process crimes and useless indictments of foreign nationals who will never be brought to trial. It was also conducted by partisan hacks, like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose primary goal was to bring down the President. That failed. So, like all cowards in retreat, Mueller and his minions attempted to do as much damage as possible to the President as they departed. That’s why they refused to exonerate him despite finding no real evidence for obstruction of justice. The whole exercise was utterly despicable.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    The report covers a lot of ground. Everyone knew, or should have known, that it would include details that Trump's detractors could use against him and details the president's supporters could cite in his defense. And it does. Certainly some House Democrats hope to use it as a road map to impeachment, and many, many Democrats hope to use it as a road map to defeating Trump in 2020. But remember what the investigation was about. It was about something that did not happen. And that should matter now that Mueller has finished his work.

  • Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

    Great expectations dashed again. The Democrats, but for the dwindling number of grown-ups in the party of Jefferson, Jackson, Harry S. Truman and FDR, were so sure that Mr. Mueller would deliver the goods they had conferred sainthood on him, much like the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Barack Obama before he assumed office. Now some Democrats are looking for rope to deal with the special counsel, unless that other mob, the one still in pursuit of the president, has cornered the supply of hemp on their march to the hanging tree.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Donald Trump is going to be presented with a sucker’s smorgasbord (Which reminds me - deport all illegal Swedes) of proposals to “solve the border crisis,” none of which will actually solve the border crisis and all of which will result in more illegals being here – only legally. It’s all amnesty, and it’s all a scam. Remember how you should never let a good crisis go to waste? Well, they see this as a good crisis, and if a few tens of thousands of Americans have to OD on Fentanyl that’s a price they’re willing to pay to dilute us conservative voters and to enrich the corporate donor class. It’s all lies, and we need to reject it.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    History always offers guidance to the eventual end game when people are unwilling to give up their chauvinism. Vicious tribal war can break out as in contemporary Syria. The nation can fragment into ethnic enclaves as seen in the Balkans. Or factions can stake out regional no-go zones of power as we’ve seen in Iraq and Libya. In sum, the present identity-politics divisiveness is not a sustainable model for a multiracial nation, and it will soon reach its natural limits one way or another. On a number of fronts, if Americans do not address these growing crises, history will. And it won’t be pretty.

  • Ralph Benko, The American Spectator

    Whether or not one accepts Moore’s commodities-index target (I do not) or Cain’s belief in the gold standard (I do), their appointment and confirmation would be consistent with President Trump’s reported desire for better equitable prosperity. Moore calls himself a “growth hawk.” Herman Cain is a sure-enough pro-prosperity supply-sider. Bring it on. Confirming Stephen Moore and Herman Cain would not undermine the Fed’s independence. There’s nothing innately partisan about equitable prosperity. Some of prosperity’s greatest champions, such as the late President John F. Kennedy and the former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, have been Democrats. President Reagan was a Democrat until his party left him.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    Call Trump what you will, but he’s a master at pushing Democrats’ buttons. A simple tweet from him and they rush to embrace the wackiest, most self-defeating ideas imaginable, even reversing their own positions. For much of Trump’s presidency, Dems and their media puppets were able to diminish his populism as mere appeals to his base. The left’s message to all others was that Trump’s policies and tweets were neither sound nor serious, just boob bait for his deplorable Bubbas. But these days, in the run-up to 2020, we are witnessing a significant change in Trump’s target audience. He is broadening his aim to include independent-minded voters who are repelled by Democrats’ increasingly radical positions.

  • Quin Hillyer, Washington Examiner

    The horrid fire at Notre Dame draws attention not just to the building but to its purpose. As people around the world rush to donate money for its reconstruction, a task French President Emmanuel Macron promises to complete within five years, they ought to realize that a cathedral’s worth lies not in its physical characteristics but in its other-directed meaning. God is quite literally wonder-full, and worthy of the most grand and beautiful tribute that human ingenuity and artfulness can create. Rebuilding Notre Dame should not be an act of mere engineering. It should be a renewing, and renewable, act of deepest faith.
