New Jersey Democrats Seek to Disenfranchise Countless Black and Women Voters

Not since Jim Crow have Democrats so flagrantly tried to deny African-Americans a meaningful right to vote.  Not since the women’s suffrage movement has a woman’s right to choose at the ballot box been so violently attacked.  Henry Ford once told reporters that the American people would be able to buy his Model T in […]

It’s About Time Someone Acknowledged the Border Crisis as a National Emergency!

After decades of neglect, political grandstanding, phony promises, and absolutely nothing happening to improve the crisis on the American-Mexican border, President Trump this week declared a national emergency in order to finally take meaningful steps to continue construction of the much-needed border wall. This action, of course, raises a number of important questions, not the […]

Trump’s Next Attorney General Should Be New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez

There’s an old proverb of questionable veracity that says that the Chinese word for “crisis” is the same as “opportunity.”  President Trump must have taken that to heart, because he is especially adept at creating such opportunities for himself, the latest of which results from the obviously coerced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who […]

It’s the President’s Job to Interpret the Birthright Citizenship Clause, and Trump’s Interpretation is Correct

Nominating Amul Thapar to the Supreme Court Will Allow Trump To Take The Offensive In What Will Be A Tough Battle.

This is going to be a fight. Trump should select Judge Amul Thapar to go to battle with him.  With the long-overdue retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, conservatives, by nature a pessimistic lot, are uniformly gleeful at the prospect of replacing this moderate “swing vote” with a judge dedicated to traditional conservative values.  […]

Merrick Garland’s Nomination Was Not “Stolen,” And It May Have Elected President Trump

Nominating Merrick Garland may have been the biggest mistake President Obama ever made. Christmas came in June this year for Republican followers of the Supreme Court, and let’s be honest, the Supreme Court is probably the primary reason that most Republican voters continue to vote Republican. The Good Lord knows it’s not because we ever […]

Trump’s Tariffs Will Reduce Trade Deficits By Reducing Trade

It’s too bad that good politics rarely makes for good economics.  Donald Trump’s historic election was in no small part due to his brilliant electoral strategy of focusing on the neglected blue-collar “Rust Belt” states that his opponent took for granted — or forgot about, or were simply too dirty for her to visit — […]
