    Recently, a federal judge in New York ruled against the free market and the way music is controlled. This ruling handed down by a single judge could cause millions of businesses to be exposed to huge increases in licensing fees.The Department of Justice has conducted a two-year investigation into the antitrust consent decrees that have ruled the music industry for years. They were interested in the way businesses such as restaurants, retail stores, and many others get their music to put customers in the buying mood. Businesses of all types must pay license fees for the right to play...

    Pressed by moderator Chris Wallace as to whether he would accept defeat should Hillary Clinton win the election, Donald Trump replied, "I will tell you at the time. I'll keep you in suspense." "That's horrifying," said Clinton, setting off a chain reaction on the post-debate panels with talking heads falling all over one another in purple-faced anger, outrage and disbelief. "Disqualifying!" was the cry on Clinton cable. "Trump Won't Say If He Will Accept Election Results," wailed The New York Times. "Trump Won't Vow to Honor Results," ran the banner in The Washington Post. But what do these chattering classes...

    I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but I don't know how reasonable people can fail to recognize the overt collusion of the Obama administration, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Party and the liberal media to shield Hillary Clinton from accountability for her many misdeeds and abundant corruption. Perhaps I can be considered a bit of an alarmist, but if I am, so are millions of others when it comes to the dire state of this nation on a number of fronts. We have a staggering national debt, a dangerously declining military and a runaway regulatory state that...

Led by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Republicans are working to sabotage the US government’s long-standing plan to transfer oversight of core internet technical functions, including management of the Domain Name System (DNS), to a nonprofit group of global stakeholders.

    Election 2016: Debate moderator Chris Wallace was widely praised for his performance in Wednesday night's debate, praise that he richly deserves if for no other reason than that he finally forced Hillary Clinton to defend her economic plan. Clinton's response was incoherent and downright dishonest. A key exchange in the debate came when Wallace pressed Clinton to explain how her economic proposals were different from President Obama's failed stimulus plan. She couldn't. Wallace asked: "So is your plan basically more — even more of the Obama stimulus?" To which Clinton responded "Well, it's a combination, Chris." Clinton can't say anything...

    Election 2016: Donald Trump has been roundly rebuked and openly reviled for saying during Wednesday night's debate that he might not "respect" the results of the election if it is fraudulent. But Hillary Clinton is the last person who should be criticizing him. Real or not, Trump seems to have a major grievance. "Remember, we are competing in a rigged election," Trump told a Wisconsin rally Monday night. "They even want to try and rig the election at the polling booths, where so many cities are corrupt and voter fraud is all too common." Then, when Trump suggested he might...

    Recent news and leaks make it clear that a plot is afoot. A smoking gun has been found. Republicans are committing political malpractice by not making it clear they are the last line of defense. ObamaCare is imploding, as was widely predicted upon its passage by Republicans and a range of non-partisan experts. The ObamaCare meltdown is even worse than we thought.

When he speaks about things being rigged there's really two parts to it. One involves possible fraudulent voting, but the other part of that rigged equation is the media being so incredibly dishonest and almost fraudulent. And so with them making an issue of him not accepting results, it almost throws, like you said earlier, it throws a focus...

    Have you noticed that for a few months, President Barack Obama has stopped bragging about how the federal budget deficit is shrinking? That's because it's not. For the first time since 2009, the deficit has gone up rather than down. The Congressional Budget Office recently released its budget review for September 2016. It shows that in fiscal 2016, which ended Sept. 30, the deficit grew by $149 billion, from $439 billion to $588 billion. It now stands at 3.2 percent of gross domestic product, up from 2.5 percent last year. It's also the first increase in the deficit as a...

    Many millennials are OK with socialism, even communism, according to a YouGov poll commissioned by The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. Forty-five percent of those polled between the ages of 16 and 20 years old said they would vote for a socialist, while 20 percent said they could vote for a communist. Maybe that explains the Che Guevara T-shirts so many of them like to wear. Responding to the poll, Marion Smith, the executive director of the organization, said, "An emerging generation of Americans has little understanding of the collectivist system and its dark history." Partial credit for this should...

At this point, the only "policy specific" Trump hasn't given us is which company will supply rebar for the wall. But now, the media's entire campaign against Trump is to prevent him from talking about policy. They would rather talk about fat-shaming than trade, immigration and jobs.

Hacked email to and from staffers at the Democratic National Committee and to and from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, shows she cares far more about the black vote than black voters. Concern for lack of diversity: One email, three months before she announced her presidential candidacy, shows Clinton's future campaign staff mocking the criticism that it lacks racial diversity.

To be fair, the system is rigged … just not in the way Democrats say it is. President Barack Obama and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., both from relatively modest means, now have fortunes not through creating businesses or jobs but by driving home this “rigged” idea. They claim people were able to take risks and build businesses solely because someone else paved the roads. These self-righteous multi-millionaires discount...

One may ask: if they were so injured by Trump's actions, why they didn't go to the newspapers sooner? If these actions happened 10, 20, or more years ago, why all of a sudden, when Trump is running for president, did their consciences motivate them to...

Democrats would need to pick up 30 House seats to grab the majority and reinstall House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, of California, into the speaker’s chair she was forced to abandon after the 2010 Tea Party rout.

Cartwright. The FBI’s handling of the case stands in stark contrast to its treatment of Hillary Clinton and retired General David Petraeus — and it reeks of political considerations.</p>
  • Finding Strength in Melania Trump

    When the now-infamous Donald Trump/Billy Bush audio feed was released, my confidence in Donald Trump all but evaporated. The so-called locker-room conversation -- about kissing, groping, and fondling women -- was worse than locker room. It was vile, vulgar, and inexcusable for a grown man. But it didn’t end with the audio tape. After that came a barrage of sexual-assault allegations from various women against Trump, drowning out any talk of substantive issues. No wonder his polls slid. He was a stock looking for a bottom. In the second debate, just days after the audio-tape release, he did apologize,...
  • The Al Sharpton of Power Companies Set to Get a New York State Bailout

    The Reverend Al Sharpton is famous. What he should be is notorious. He has many, many life lowlights. The one that pertains to our conversation here is the 2014 New York Times report that he was at that time $4.5 million short on his federal and New York state taxes. ThatÂ’s a lot. And it brings to mind many thoughts regarding the Reverend. None of which, for normal people, is: What this guy really deserves is a government bailout check. Yet that is what New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo is on the verge of doing for Exelon Generation...

    You’re probably familiar with the old story about the inebriated guy looking for his wallet at night under a streetlight — not because that’s where he dropped it but because what would be the point of poking around in the dark? This, in essence, has been the American approach to resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict for years. Over and over, the Israelis are asked to make concessions, to “take risks for peace.” Under pressure, they sometimes do. Reciprocal concessions are not demanded of Palestinian leaders because what would be the point of asking for what they can’t or won’t do? Hamas,...

    After more than a week of blistering attacks from Democrats, celebrities and the press, Donald Trump has managed to pull ahead of Hillary Clinton by 1 percentage point — 41.3% to 40% — in a four-way matchup, according to the new IBD/TIPP poll released today. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson got 8% and Green Party candidate Jill Stein got 6%. The results are the first in the IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. Daily updates start Thursday and will continue until the election. The IBD/TIPP poll previously was monitoring support for the candidates in the 2016 election on a monthly basis.

    A Bible was removed from the waiting room of a Chillicothe Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Athens, Ohio after a veteran complained. “Our government is secular, and must remain secular,” the unidentified veteran wrote. Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, fired off a letter to the medical center on behalf of the veteran – alleging that the presence of the Bible inside a government facility is a violation of the U.S. Constitution. Weinstein, a fussy little man with a strong aversion to our Lord, said the Bible’s placement in the waiting room was “illicit and...

    The bombshell was reported once more by the National Enquirer, and it was given immediate, massive exposure by being featured as the lead story on the Drudge Report, read by millions of people each day.You might say, “That’s odd. I didn’t hear anything about that.”But of course. The mainstream media doesn’t think you should hear about it, just like they don’t think you hear about the WikiLeaks revelations or other stories that could help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton.Yet it was nothing more than an Enquirer story that launched the non-stop attacks on Ted Cruz, and from the initial...

    f you rely on press coverage of the presidential race you probably think everything is fine in America. No foreign threats. No domestic crises. No budget or crime problems. Certainly nothing important enough to warrant discussing where the candidates stand. Instead, we see stories telling us that Donald Trump apparently is crude like Bill Clinton. Not that journalists said much about the latter when he ran for office. Then it was a non-issue. But, of course, he’s a liberal, so personal imperfections didn’t matter. Yet in 1992, when Clinton was elected, the real issues didn’t seem so important. America...

    If a person wants to go into business as a taxicab owner, what requirements should be imposed to protect the public? The prospective taxicab owner should show that he is honest and can operate a vehicle safely. His vehicle should pass a safety inspection, and he should have a liability insurance policy. Some cities require the purchase of an existing license, sometimes called a medallion. A medallion has cost as much as over $1 million, as in the case of New York City, and the cost has reached $700,000 in Boston and $360,000 in Chicago. There is no public...

    When was the last time you saw a healthy stretch of media coverage about actual issues pertaining to the presidency? When was the last week that featured detailed national conversations about the issues Donald Trump rode to the Republican nomination? When he became the presumptive nominee in May, I was among the voices claiming that if the election focuses on the issues, he wins. He wins on borders, wins on the Supreme Court, wins on taxes, wins on blasting through the political correctness that threatens our liberty and safety. That race did not happen. It felt like it in...

    How many more broadcast bust-ups will it take before America finally decides to make its presidential election debates tolerable again? I can't take it anymore. Can you? For the past three cycles -- 2008, 2012, and 2016 -- I've chronicled the depressing, systemic bias of left-leaning partisans whom the Commission on Presidential Debates routinely installs as "moderators." It would be one thing if these activists posing as journalists were upfront about their political preferences. But they continue to star in phony debate theater wearing their dime-store costumes of objectivity. The even bigger farce? Masochistic Republican Party bosses let them get...
