Katie Pavlich: What’s Behind Barr’s Inquiry?


As Attorney General Bill Barr continues his investigation of the investigators, Democrats have repeatedly accused him of betraying his position as the nation’s top law enforcement officer in order to protect the president.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

By launching an investigation into the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, Barr is looking to protect the civil liberties of all Americans.

Barr has confirmed that the FBI did, in fact, spy on private citizens working for the Trump campaign. Getting to the bottom of whether this was done legally is crucial.

In addition, the American people deserve to know how the Obama administration partnered with the Department of Justice to go after a presidential political opponent. This is an issue every American should be working to prevent in the future.

Hugh Hewitt: Who’s to Blame in Tensions With Iran?

The Trump administration deserves some credit for seeing Iran clearly.

President Obama did not. His efforts to lure Ayatollah Khomeini into changing the behavior of his rogue regime never had a chance because it began from the premise that appeasement works, but appeasement never does work.

Not with Iran. Not with Russia and the famous “reset” button. And not in the 1994 deal with North Korea.

The appeasement policies of Obama have been abandoned. Good!

Iran is dangerously close to provoking a conflict—and most U.S. media outlets are far behind the news curve.

President Trump has been ably served by National Security Advisor John Bolton—as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Both rightly believe that Iran was, is and will remain a rogue regime as long as the radical theocrats remain in power.

It’s not about Bolton or Pompeo.

It’s about the mullahs in Tehran. It has been since 1979.

Michael Medved: Minor Parties Play the Wild Card

The five presidential elections of the 21st Century have established a clear pattern of close battles between evenly matched parties—a pattern charismatic candidates and billions in spending can’t seem to break.

Republican nominees have all won similar popular vote percentages, ranging from 51 percent for George W. Bush in 2004, to 46 percent for both John McCain and Donald Trump.

Democrats draw similar support—between Obama’s 53 percent in 2008 and Hillary’s 48 percent last time.

What changes more significantly from election to election is the vote for minor party candidates, which soared to 6 percent in 2016, more than triple their combined percentage in 2008 and 2012. If Howard Schultz runs a third party campaign, and protest candidates draw a total of 7 million votes as they did last time, President Trump is almost certain to benefit.

Albert Mohler: The Stage is Set for Another Drama at the High Court

The Supreme Court has announced that it will take up cases that will determine whether or not sexual orientation and gender identity are included as protected classes under the federal government’s Civil Rights Act of 1964.

During the Obama Administration, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cited the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prevented discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin — and they said that gender identity and sexual orientation should be considered included under “sex.”

But there is no one who can plausibly argue that Congress and the then President Lyndon Johnson had sexual orientation and gender identity in mind in 1964.

They didn’t.

They wouldn’t have even understood what we are talking about.

It’s an effort from the moral revolutionaries to try to further their aims by going around Congress—seeking action by executive order and then support from the Courts.

An ultimate decision in this case, is not likely to come until June of 2020, and that sets the stage for an incredible drama now to follow.
