Social Media Bias

Conservative leaders have been warning for some time that the social media giants are biased against their right-leaning users.  Twitter seems to be the latest offender. Several leading Republicans, including RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel and outspoken conservatives like Rep. Mark Meadows, have accused the social media platform of “shadow banning” them.  […]

Making America Great Again

The U.S. economy grew at a strong rate of 4.1% in the second quarter of the year.  That’s the strongest economic growth in four years and one of the best quarters in the past decade.  Gee, I wonder what changed? Barack Obama’s policies helped produce one of the worst economic […]

Trump Wins Again

President Trump’s tough stance and his willingness to challenge to conventional wisdom on trade has surprised and frustrated many pundits and politicians in both parties.  At a White House event this week showcasing products made in America, Trump declared: “Our leaders in Washington did nothing, they did nothing.  They let […]

About That Warrant. . .

The Justice Department is ever so slowly starting to comply with demands for information relating to the start of the Russia collusion investigation.  Over the weekend, the FBI released the original application to the secret FISA court seeking a warrant to monitor communications from Carter Page, a low-level advisor to […]

Putting Iran On Notice

Fighting For Faith

Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed an appropriations bill on a narrow vote of 217 to 199.  Tucked inside that bill is legislation that effectively guts the Johnson Amendment, thereby allowing pastors to speak freely from the pulpit about public policy without fear of the IRS. To give you some idea […]

Economic Illiteracy

We told you recently about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s difficulty comprehending the unemployment rate.  She claimed it was low because so many people were working two jobs.  The left-leaning site PolitiFact rated her claim not just false, but “Pants On Fire!” Unfortunately, others on the left are just as confused.  Sen. Elizabeth Warrendoubled down, telling MSNBC that […]

Wray Said What?

I was on Capitol Hill this week, and I had a fascinating conversation with Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas. As you may know, he aggressively confronted renegade FBI operative Peter Strzok, who was once chief of the FBI’s Counterespionage Section.  There were several significant revelations from that hearing, which the media […]
