A group of students at University of Wisconsin used the recent Indigenous People’s Day to try to discredit Abraham Lincoln. They covered a monumental statue of the 16th President with derisive signs and staged a “Die-In” in front of it. “Let’s be real,” said a protest leader. “He owned slaves,...

President Trump recently decried the inability of Congress to approve his court nominees. “We have some of the most qualified people,” he said. “They’re waiting forever on line... it’s not fair.” More than anyone else, Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chair of the Judiciary Committee, methodically frustrates the...

President Trump’s enduring support among evangelical Christians and Mass-attending Catholics befuddles many of his critics. The genuinely confused, instead of those who merely arch their eyebrows, should realize that for millions of voters, religious liberty remains the overarching issue of the day.

The state of California, the nation’s most populous state, is often the epicenter of cultural and moral change in the nation. Governor Jerry Brown recently vetoed Assembly Bill 569, which would have, shockingly enough, removed religious employers’ ability to make hiring and firing decisions based on their own religious code of...

Some conservatives expressed dismay, and even a sense of betrayal, over the President’s recent press conference with Mitch McConnell, in which Trump praised the Senate Majority Leader for his loyalty and effectiveness. What did Trump have in mind, McConnell’s many right-wing critics seemed to wonder? Very likely, he appreciated the Kentucky Senator’s...

The defeat of ISIS in its self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa—and its self-proclaimed caliphate—is a huge victory for the West and for the U.S.-backed forces that cleared that Syrian city of its remaining ISIS killers. Those self-proclaimed martyrs surrendered, by the way, refusing to fight to the death as ISIS propaganda...

In another inane choice for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize , the Norwegian Nobel Committee selected an organization known as ICAN—the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. The idea of “abolishing” nuclear weapons is absurd, of course: if the world enacted the restrictive treaties proposed by the campaign, then decent, law-abiding nations would...

The New York Times recently reported on allegations of shameless sexual harassment by Oscar-winning movie mogul Harvey Weinstein from dozens of young women.

Something is happening to the American family.

Jerry Bowyer: Tax Reform and a Chance to Make up for Lost Decade

Luther, tax reform, Impeachment

Last week, Republican leaders announced their tax reform plans. The good news is that they’re pro-growth: US corporate tax rates are today the highest in the developed world, and our current system perversely punishes American companies for bringing profits back from their foreign sales. The GOP plan fixes that problem....
