Earlier this month, President Trump announced that he intends to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Numerous pundits and analysts have declared Trump’s announcement to be the worst possible thing that could happen for peace in the Middle East. (The Washington Free Beacon has a good rundown of all the doomsday predictions.) There was an instance of a Red Crescent ambulance providing transport for rioters. There was also Mahmoud Abbas calling for an Orwellian-like “Day of Rage,” and Hamas saying that Trump’s announcements open up “the Gates of Hell.” None of this is a new development. Plus, if other nations’ responses are any indication,...Read More

If you have listened to the left in recent days, you would think that Senate Republicans violated the Geneva Conventions. What they actually did was pass a piece of tax legislation. This legislation, we are told, is a nightmare for women, will literally kill people, and those who support it must answer to God for why they hate poor people.

One of the things Democrats achieved back in 2009-2010 was create The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as part of the Dodd-Frank Act. Now, the CFPB is at the center of a Constitutional battle between the White House and its self-appointed acting director. What Happened?

The Evangelical movement, often considered one of the three legs of conservatism, seems to be in a state of disarray. At the center of that disarray has been the Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. The Washington Post released a story in which four women accused Moore of sexual misconduct. The youngest remembered: “That Moore kissed her, that he took off her pants and shirt, and that he touched her through her bra and underpants. She says that he guided her hand to his underwear and that she yanked her hand back.” On Monday, another woman came forward to accuse Moore of...Read More
