It had to be galling. Geert Wilders, a member of Dutch Parliament, was found guilty three months ago of “inciting discrimination against Dutch Moroccans” — the very people who have been trying to kill him since at least 2003.

If you love the ACA (Affordable Care Act)  and President Obama, you want to believe 30 million people 'will lose their health care coverage if the mean old Republicans pass their bill!'

I want to take a few minutes for what is known in government as a “point of personal privilege.” It’s what you do when someone attacks you and you need to set the record straight. In my case, reporters for prominent national publications have gone after me as a way of attacking Donald Trump and his senior subordinates.

Securing the famously porous southern border is essential to national security but so is a reliable system that cracks down on visa overstays.

Where is the Democratic party? The party of political giants like FDR, LBJ and JFK is missing in action along with the letters that defined its heroes. This is now the party of Obama, Schumer, Pelosi – a facsimile of the past and a party without direction and policy guidelines.

This article is addressed to the public in general, but especially the media, i.e., journalists who should know better but don’t.

Congressional Democrats and their media allies hope James Comey will deliver a body blow to the Trump presidency by telling lawmakers Russia undermined the the 2016 presidential election and that President Trump’s claim that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower is groundless.

Among other things, they discourage foreign leaders from speaking with the president.

An acrid stench of repression is spreading through America.

Why should you be interested in the French presidential campaign? Because it might as well be going on next door to you.

Critics of the order have celebrated the panel decision, though many of us (including opponents of the immigration order) criticized the opinion as poorly written and supported.

Many experts, genuine or self-proclaimed, assert that the battle against radical Islam will be won, not so much by killing its adherents, but by discrediting the ideology. That sounds profound indeed, yet, what exactly does it mean?
