“He is a great businessman; an outsider who is shaking things up in a town of career politicians, and I like it!” It isn’t a direct quote. Rather, it’s a general mantra of the conservatives who voted for and continue to accept President Donald Trump’s poor decisions. Other conservatives have defended the President, particularly for his decision to fire James Comey, by saying it is his right. Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., is one such person who defended the President’s decision to fire Comey. Haley argued that he is “the CEO of the country” and that “he can hire and...Read More

The left is an ideological group that is consumed with bashing long-held scientific binaries (see, “No, Trans Women Are NOT ‘Biologically Male’“). However, in a glaring contradiction, the Left has only hardened the rift between camps in the climate change debate. On this issue, the Left has a serious blind spot, at best, or is highly hypocritical, at worst. Former Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, who now writes for the New York Times, has experienced this unfortunate reality. His learning curve started after publishing his initial column at the Times, titled “Climate of Complete Certainty.” In the column, Stephens uses the example of Hillary Clinton’s scientifically-sure-yet-unsuccessful campaign...Read More
Bashar al-Assad’s most recent, unconscionable transgression against his own people has rekindled a years-old debate. America, and the world, must decide again just how to deal with Syria. It’s safe to say that Washington is unified in decrying Assad and demanding his replacement. However, there are sharp disagreements, especially within the Republican party, about how to achieve that. The Wall Street Journal reported last Thursday that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the U.N. Security Council that the U.S. would be “compelled to take our own actions” if the international community doesn’t satisfactorily react to Assad’s attack, connoting military intervention of...Read More
“We will repeal and replace the disaster of ObamaCare.” That commitment has been a principal mantra for President Trump, second only to “Let’s make America great again!” For that reason, a Republican healthcare plan has been long-anticipated by the party and its voters. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), the proposed American Healthcare Act failed before it even got a chance to succeed. The bill had numerous problems, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s clever but unrealistic “three-pronged approach.” Derided by Sen. Tom Cotton as “political talk,” the proposal would never have flown. That being said, Ryan still...Read More
The California State Senate has proposed a bill that would severely limit state law enforcement’s engagement with federal immigration authorities. California State Senator Kevin de León first introduced SB 54, called the “California Values Act,” last December. It begins by saying that “Immigrants are valuable and essential members of the California community.” It continues: “A relationship of trust between California’s immigrant community and state and local agencies is central to the public safety of the people of California.” Unfortunately, the things SB 54’s authors and cosponsors consider necessary for maintaining a good relationship with its immigrant population will cause more harm than...Read More
