This 2016 presidential race was a hard fought campaign. President-elect Donald J. Trump campaigned on a bold and conservative platform of making our cities safe again.
Not too long ago, Democrats were the ones claiming elections were stolen.
If you rely on press coverage of the presidential race you probably think everything is fine in America. No foreign threats. No domestic crises. No budget or crime problems. Certainly nothing important enough to warrant discussing where the candidates stand.
As we witness the home stretch of the presidential election with candidate debates, campaign stops, and political ads, both parties have an opportunity to talk substantively about a serious trade issue — ongoing efforts by China to hack and steal intellectual property from U.S.
The Democrats are now playing the Russia card. As Donald Trump rises in the polls against an increasingly unpopular Hillary Clinton, Democrats are raising the specter of the nefarious Vladimir Putin.
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has many allies within the Progressive movement. Funded largely by the most liberal elements of the Left, especially those within the George Soros network, like his Center for American Progress, BLM has been a major motivator for the attacks on police officers all over the country.
Again state legislatures have approved new rules to prevent election fraud. Again federal courts have struck the laws down. Much of America's political and legal establishment is resolutely opposed to election integrity. It makes you wonder what they believe democracy is all about.
In considering future US policy toward such a totalitarian regime, it is imperative to consider whether there exists an alternative — a serious and credible opposition to the existing government. The answer, in the case of Iran, is clearly "yes."
We all claim to hate the "establishment." And why not? Look at the mess around us. It's obvious that the folks in charge haven't done a very good job.
After last week's protests over police practices, mass killing of cops in Dallas, and usual efforts to take political advantage, it should be evident to every American that we face a crisis in public trust and accountability.
The Left gets aroused when, say, a businessman takes advantage of the system. But they turn a blind eye when it comes to one of their own. Like presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton.
Many leaders of big business support Hillary Clinton. Last week she announced a list of 56 corporate backers. No wonder Bernie Sanders is still running against her.
It won't be the first time an incumbent attempted to help elect his successor. But never before has the conflict been so great, with the current president presiding over a criminal investigation of his party's presumptive nominee.
Billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently complained to a Wall Street gathering that "the Republican Party is no longer the party of business."
Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican Party nominee for president. His imminent triumph has created shock and dismay within the GOP. A number of top Republicans are threatening not to support Trump. A few have proposed launching a third party bid.
The media almost always is more interested in process than substance. So it's been big news that Ted Cruz and John Kasich are cooperating in their effort to stop Donald Trump from winning a majority of delegates and thus the nomination.
The recent Wisconsin primary was a serious setback for the front-runners of both parties. Donald Trump's momentum toward the 1,237 delegates needed for the Republican nomination was slowed by Ted Cruz's victory, and Hillary Clinton lost yet again to Bernie Sanders, who's won seven of the last eight contests.
Senator Sanders' proposal doesn't just have the potential to undermine the drug development system, it also poses a serious danger to the patent system by allowing the government to intervene in the protection of intellectual property.
The eventual Republican nominee needs to take something from all three candidates to win.
The pages of the political calendar are turning relentlessly. Yesterday, GOP voters went to the polls in Arizona and Utah.
It's time for Republican and conservative voters to open their eyes to the real Donald Trump and understand the reasons why the nation deserves better than this political huckster.
For 30 years Antonin Scalia sat on the Supreme Court. He was a legal giant, unimpressed with the pretensions of power and resistant to liberal orthodoxies.
When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, was enacted, Americans were promised a healthcare system in which insurance companies would be held accountable and patients would have access to affordable care.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, is traveling to the EU (Italy and France) this week in a visit that is supposed to hail a new era of relations with the West. Many have embraced him as a supposed "moderate" within the regime.
Whatever benefits the West hopes to achieve from new investments in the Islamic Republic, they don't justify the blood that will stain our hands when we feed such a narrow and dangerous segment of the Iranian economy.
