Greg Thornbury: Comey’s Obligation

A Pew Research study shows sharp contrasts between Republicans and Democrats in attitudes toward wealth and poverty. By more than three-to-one, Republicans say hard work, rather than a person’s advantages, explains why people are rich.

The Democrats used to bill themselves as the party of unshakable optimism with jaunty, confident presidents like FDR or JFK, or the “Man from Hope” himself, Bill Clinton. But a new Pew Research study shows the party of “Happy Days Are Here Again” and “High Hopes” is now the party...

Mark Davis: After Comey

Comey

Reactions to President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey are falling along predictable lines. There’s a strain of conservative comments that this was overdue, even though his late October re-opening of the Hillary Clinton e-mail case may have contributed to Trump’s win in November. That’s the recently expressed belief...

The President’s recent signing of his executive order dealing with religious liberty was much anticipated by all concerned with First Amendment liberties in our fast-changing nation.

Greg Thornbury: No Questions Allowed

Greg Thornbury

When Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bret Stephens left the Wall Street Journal editorial board for The New York Times recently, the change raised a few eyebrows. Stephens, who had been very critical of then-candidate Trump, perhaps fit better at the “Old Grey Lady,” in this day and age. Few people, however,...

grateful, slaughter, admiral, Congressional Review Act, sea change, Blue Slip, tax reform, EPA

The mainstream media has been determined to find fault with President Trump’s performance during his first 100 days in office. In reality, a legislative legacy was passing beneath the noses of the Manhattan-Beltway media elites who could not be bothered to learn the wide-ranging implications of the baker’s dozen of...
