POLITICS & POLICY

President Donald Trump at the White House, September 30, 2019. (Leah Millis/Reuters) Former National Enquirer editor Dylan Howard ordered staff to shred documents related to the tabloid’s relationship with President Trump ahead of the 2016 election, according to Ronan Farrow’s new book “Catch and Kill.” The tabloid came under fire after the Wall Street Journal revealed that

Ted Williams makes it over at Slate. He begins by dispelling the notion that the product causes cancer: Numerous scientific bodies have found there to be no good evidence that it does, and one prominent exception — the International Agency for Research on Cancer — was widely condemned for its methods. The man who led

As other socialists have done, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez points to Denmark as a model country: Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!🎈 Spending the day in Denmark after C40, enjoying this social democracy that treats healthcare & education as rights, zero-carbon as priority, & infrastructure as a key public good. Here’s to another year of

Joe Biden’s rhetoric grows more inflammatory with every new Democratic presidential poll, as rival Elizabeth Warren has surpassed him in the national polling averages and he realizes pretend moderation won’t sell. In surveying his multitudinous rivals, Biden doubtlessly sees himself as a man of superior wisdom, experience and gravitas. By gosh, he’s wanted this job

I’ve grown increasingly curious — hell, let’s say suspicious — about the most recent incarnation of the three-year effort to find a case for impeaching Trump. This is, of course, the House Permanent Special Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the Democrat members’ “impeachment investigation.” Take it as read that we now know the Ukrainian investigation

This past weekend, I spoke for the second time at the second annual Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., hosted by Turning Point USA. Turning Point was founded in 2012 by then-18-year-old Charlie Kirk. Its website describes its goal as seeking “to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free

So it turns out that the acting director of the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management, William Perry Pendley, has denied the Left’s “climate change” mythology, and opposes jihad violence and illegal immigration. CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski is out for blood, trying to get Pendley for heresy, that is, for his dissent from Leftist orthodoxy. My

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is controversial within her party. She says the U.S. should talk to its enemies. She was criticized for meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. But Democrats were supposed to be the anti-war party, I say to her in my newest video. “They’re heavily influenced by a foreign policy establishment

A lot can happen in 90 seconds. In 2013, it took the flight attendants on Asiana Airlines Flight 214 only 90 seconds to evacuate nearly 300 people off of a plane that had crashed at San Francisco International Airport — despite their personal injuries and the flames and smoke in the cabin. In February 2016,

A rule of life is that everything the left touches it ruins: art, music, Christianity, Judaism, race relations, male-female relations, universities, high schools, elementary schools, late-night comedy, sports, liberty, journalism, the Boy Scouts, national economies, language and everything else it influences. The left, not liberalism. (I have written a column and done a PragerU video

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) probably says and tweets more remarkably ignorant things than anyone in Congress — perhaps more than anyone in the United States. Her latest attack on President Trump regarding his attacks on California Democrat Adam Schiff may be her dumbest hot-take yet. Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism

The Democrats’ purported outrage about President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky might be taken seriously by the Republicans were it not for the Democrats’ drive to oust Trump from the moment he won the presidency. CNN’s Van Jones, with zero proof, attributed Trump’s victory to “whitelash.” Trump received 57% of the

For perhaps the first time in her career, Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has made a good public policy proposal, saying that Facebook should be broken up and noting correctly that “Zuckerberg himself said Facebook is ‘more like a government than a traditional company.’ They’ve bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, undermined our

Ask any young person — even a young child — “What do you want to be?” and just about everyone will answer, “a doctor,” “an engineer,” “a teacher,” “a firefighter,” “an airplane pilot” or a member of some other profession. This is completely understandable. But I have a suggestion that would change your child’s life
