Fifty years ago, the 19-year-old state of Israel won a miraculous, astonishing victory against larger, better equipped forces of Egypt, Syria and Jordan.

If Theresa May wins her expected victory in June’s British elections it will represent the latest evidence of a sweeping international trend: the utter collapse of the old left.

A long-awaited announcement from the Trump administration was released last week: namely, the reversal of the Obamacare contraception mandate, the mandate that required all employers, even religious employers, to pay for contraception methods, including abortion-inducing drugs.

Democrats who prattle endlessly about impeaching President Trump are deluding themselves and damaging the country. Not only do they lack convincing evidence of impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” but they also possess no understanding of the lessons of history. Only three presidents have ever confronted serious impeachment proceedings: Andrew Johnson,...

Jerry Bowyer: Push The Tax Plan Now

Impeachment

The U.S. economy is in danger, and the longer the Trump tax plan is delayed, the greater that danger becomes. President Trump wants large tax cuts in corporate and individual rates. That’s good, because right now America has the highest corporate tax rates in the developed world. But here’s the...

Students at the University of Notre Dame recently staged a walk out protest against Vice President Mike Pence who was the university’s commencement speaker.

The horrific Manchester terror attack raises uncomfortable questions about the imperfect integration of Britain’s Muslim minority. A series of such brutal incidents in the United Kingdom involved native-born British subjects, not recent refugees. And despite some fears of Islam’s surging influence, the most recent numbers show that self-identified Muslims still...
