WASHINGTON, JUNE 23 – “Hate is not a political strategy,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens. “We need a time out from the political vitriol that has been dividing our nation since President Donald Trump was elected last November. There have been just too many incidents of violent political discord-enough to threaten the future of the country.” The founder of the nation’s largest Conservative senior advocacy organization said in a statement issued today,...

President Donald Trump continues to sign legislation, an achievement he deemed “nice” Friday. The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and reforms for the Department of Veteran Affairs. The three pieces of legislation all had bipartisan support. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 calls for a $19.5 billion budget for NASA — an increase...

Fifty years ago, National Review founding editor James Burnham wrote Suicide of the West: An Essay on the Meaning and Destiny of Liberalism , a book that brilliantly examines the role of modern liberalism in reconciling the West to its geopolitical retreat. Like all of Burnham’s books, Suicide of the West combines elegant writing, historical insight, unsentimental political analysis, and an unmatched understanding of power in all its forms. It was Burnham’s last book (other than a...

Michael Brown The key difference between Christianity and Islam is the difference between Jesus and Muhammad. Jesus was a spiritual leader who laid down His life to save the world. Muhammad was a spiritual leader, who became a political leader, then a violent military leader. Jesus accomplished His mission by dying on the cross. Muhammad accomplished his mission (at least largely) by ruling by the sword. There are, of course, great similarities between the world’s two largest religions....

Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides.   Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S....

The Current Atmosphere in This Nation Is Unsustainable

A lot is said about resistance these days. Resistance denotes something that goes beyond political discourse and disagreements. It denotes belligerence, intractability, unwillingness to compromise, a militant demeanor willing to go outside the lines of decency and lawfulness. Resistance is what the French and other European countries practiced during Nazi occupation, a justifiable and noble posture to take, considering that their countries were occupied by an evil and overwhelming force...

The nation’s leading source of information on U.S. charities faces mounting criticism for using a controversial “hate group” designation in listings for some well-known and broadly supported conservative nonprofits.

The decision by the tracker of nonprofits prompted 41 conservative leaders to protest the move in a...

New York Senator Chuck Schumer admitted Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Democrats have only themselves to blame for recent losses. Schumer said the Democratic loss in the GA-06 special election shows that the party needs to embrace a “strong, bold, sharp-edged, and common-sensed economic agenda.” He bragged about attending a Yankee game and sitting next to a trucker wearing an “I am a deplorable” t-shirt, implying those are the types of voters the Democrat Party needs to appeal to....

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) is reportedly feeling a bit alone within her party. She was one of the few Democrats who were not sold on Hillary Clinton winning the 2016 election. In fact, she felt that Donald Trump would win. Representing district, where trade and jobs were key, where Hillary Clintons campaign more or less neglected, and where Donald Trump’s message of making American great again resonated—Dingell saw the writing on the wall if the Democrats didn’t change course.

There is a place for contempt in our public discourse. We should have contempt for a regime in North Korea that brutalized a young American student named Otto Warmbier. We should have contempt for a regime in Syria that uses poison gas to massacre innocent men, women and children. We should have contempt for Islamic State terrorists who behead Americans, burn people alive in cages and systematically rape Yazidi girls. But we should not have contempt for each other. Yet, we do.

Well, after Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia, it’s another stinging reminder that Democrats don’t know how to win elections yet in the Trump era. As I’ve mentioned before, the blame game has begun, along with a debate centering on where the Left goes from here. Do they go for the Bern, a hard-core left wing push, or sprint to the center to peel off moderate suburban GOP voters who dot congressional districts Democrats need to win to retake the House in 2018. For starters, the farther left the...

Donald Trump has been President of the United States for just shy of six months now. I think that most of us among the electorate knew that his presidency would be a relative disaster, but I am not sure how many among us expected the catastrophe our nation now faces. The sad thing is that I don’t even have to run through a laundry list of his wrongdoings and cite a litany of sources. Any quick Internet search or flip of the TV to a credible news source will run down the most recent scandal...
