First Anniversary Of Trump Era Finds Americans Great Again

Are you better off now than you were one year ago? From the Potomac to Puget Sound, President Donald J. Trump and other Republicans should ask voters this exact question. Their answers should buoy GOP prospects for November’s mid-term elections. Saturday marks one year since President Trump’s inauguration. Since January 20, 2017, Trump and the GOP Congress have mopped up much of the previous management’s mess. Obama’s hectoring, anti-business tone has been hushed. His class warfare, “global-warming” fetish, and lead-from-behindism are neutralized. Some 1,500 absurd and intrusive regulations, many of them Obama’s brainchildren, have been junked. And Obama’s taxaholism has been… Keep Reading

President Trump Seems Far Saner Than His Critics

After 18 months of scrutiny, the accusation that candidate Donald J. Trump colluded with the Kremlin looks as empty as a Soviet store shelf. Far-Left Democrats screamed for Trump’s impeachment even before his inauguration. Nonetheless, the House considered articles of impeachment on. The measure was massacred 58-364. In fact, 126 Democrats just said, “Nay.” Undeterred, the Trump-loathing Left’s latest gambit is that the president is “unfit for office” due to mental illness. Keep Reading

The FBI Did Everything But Drive Hillary’s Getaway Car

The FBI did everything but drive Hillary’s getaway car. Former secretary of state Clinton is a free woman largely thanks to the tender loving care that the FBI provided her and her conspirators during its probe of her illegal, unsecure e-mail server and related abuse of government secrets. GOP lawmakers concluded this after grilling FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on December 21, behind closed doors, according to John Solomon’s molar-grinding expose in Tuesday’s The Hill. “For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken,” Solomon reported. This proof includes newly confirmed… Keep Reading

2017 Was Trump’s Year Of Winning Dangerously

For President Donald J. Trump, 2017 concludes unlike how it commenced. Huge distractions arrived early, including court battles concerning Trump’s travel restrictions on terror-torn nations, a Niagara Falls of classified leaks, and loud threats of impeachment over alleged Russian collusion. Meanwhile, repealing and replacing Obamacare, expected to take just a few months, devolved into a quagmire that devoured time, energy, and morale. But 2017 ends as Trump’s Year of Winning Dangerously. He has navigated these and other troubled waters and defied his liberal and conservative critics. As he puts it: “We are compiling a long and beautiful list” of achievements. Keep Reading

Optimistic Trump Stumps For Tax Cuts

President Donald J. Trump’s tormentors paint him as a brooding grinch who oozes pessimism. The New Republic last October decried “Trump’s dark portrayal of the country.” But Trump was Mr. Sunshine at the White House Wednesday as he promoted the Republican tax-cut plan, now in production on Capitol Hill. “The goal of my administration is for every American to know the dignity of work, the pride of a paycheck, and the satisfaction of a job well done,” Trump declared. “We want people to love waking up in the morning and going to work.” Even more broadly, Trump discussed this nation’s… Keep Reading

Yes, We Can Have The 20 Percent Corporate Tax Rate — Next Month!

Former Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey (R – New York) has discovered the formula for delivering a 20 percent corporate-tax rate in 2018 — as the U.S. House wishes — not 2019, as the Senate voted, thus flirting with GOP political suicide. McCaughey, a senior fellow with the London Center for Policy Research (as am I), offered a delightfully simple plan in Wednesday’s New York Post: “This beautiful committee,” as President Trump dubbed the House-Senate conference, should accept the House’s January 1, 2018 date for the corporate tax to plunge from today’s 35 percent rate to a new, paradigm-shifting 20 percent. And how would conferees “pay for” such history-making tax relief for American… Keep Reading
