  • The ideas set out by Martin Luther sparked a reformation in the idea of authority itself

    It is unlikely that Martin Luther set out to shatter authority. Yet the Reformation, which started with the publication of his Ninety-Five Theses in 1517, set in motion a chain of events that fundamentally undermined the idea of authority itself. Luther demanded that the papacy respond to his criticisms of the Churchís moral failings. His actions did not simply call into question the moral authority of the Church. His defiant stand gave voice to a sentiment that would eventually provide legitimation for disobeying all forms of authority. Lutherís challenge to the papacyís moral status converged with the ascendancy of secular...

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio ó While pundits breathlessly reported this week that President Trumpís Gallup approval rating has plummeted to a historic low (dipping to 37 points), not all approval ratings are created equal. Because in American politics, geography is everything. Live in an urban, minority or college setting, and Donald J. Trump is underwater in the polls in a big way; he gets a frosty 29 percent approval rating in the cities, 35 percent approval in the urban suburbs, in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal survey. But, live in the second ring of suburbs outside the cities, or the exurbs or...

    Let's face it. This is not going to end soon and not going to end well for anyone. Congressman Devin Nunes, chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, admitted this week that he could not rule out the assertion by President Trump that Obama administration officials wiretapped or surveilled he and members of his presidential campaign. I was a guest on several radio shows in the wake of this statement where it was referred to as a "bombshell." I cautioned conservative hosts that there wasn't going to be a clear and definitive outcome to this Ďwitch-hunt.'...

    For strategic reasons, I have signed onto liberal newsletter eblasts, so that I can know what the enemy is doing in my state. After Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the American Health Care Act (ACHA), every Democratic lawmaker, candidate, and special interest group exulted in their victory: ďYour calls made the difference!Ē ďWe did it!Ē ďYou saved health care.Ē Uh Ö no. Because Obamacare remains intact, healthcare remains in morbid free-fall.

    Economics: For those not in the know, this weekend marks the gala 60th anniversary of the formation of what eventually became the European Union. Celebrate while you can, because it might not make it to 61. The European Union will "celebrate" its 60th birthday officially on Saturday in a sad effort to make itself look still relevant. We don't mean to be snide, but it has precious little to celebrate. Starting small, the 1957 Treaty of Rome created what was then called the European Economic Community from just six countries. It should have stayed small. From those modest beginnings, it...

    Itís fine for Democrats to be upset that Donald Trump schlonged Hillary Clinton, but the reality is that they spent the entirety of the Obama years getting their brains beaten in. When Obama first took office, they held the House and 60 seats in the Senate and controlled the majority of governorships and state legislatures. Now, the GOP has a large majority in the House, 52 seats in the Senate, and the majority of state legislatures and governorships.Democrats went from thinking they were on the verge of a permanent political ascendancy to the worst political bloodbath in American history.

    Amid a growing frenzy in Congress over the postponed vote for the American Health Care Act is the looming threat against Speaker of the House Paul Ryanís very livelihood. As the health care bill continues to sink, many are beginning to wonder if it is a sign that Ryan should not be at the helm in the House as well. President Trump was asked today during a brief press gaggle if he felt Speaker Ryan should remain in his position if the AHCA failed to pass. Willing to remain publicly loyal to Ryan for now, at least, Trump said ďyes.Ē...

    Health Reform: Friday's decision to pull the American Health Care Act from the House floor because it lacked enough votes to pass was a culmination of months of bad decisions, poor planning, and terrible messaging by the GOP leadership in the House. This failure undermines not only the party's credibility, but President Trump's purported ability to "make great deals." Worse, it emboldens the left-wing "resistance." Back in early December, we warned in this space that the Republican's ObamaCare repeal effort was "off to a bad start." That was when House Speaker Paul Ryan was talking up a "repeal and delay"...

    Legislation can be crafted bottom up or top down. In bottom up you ask, What problems do voters have and how can they be addressed. In top down, you ask, What problems do elite politicians have and how can they be addressed? The House Republican health care bill is a pure top-down document. It was not molded to the actual health care needs of regular voters. It does not have support from actual American voters or much interest in those voters. It was written by elites to serve the needs of elites. Donald Trump vowed to drain the swamp, but...

    Supreme Court: After Judge Neil Gorsuch spent 20 hours demonstrating that he is abundantly qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice, Democrats announced plans to filibuster his nomination. Good luck with that. By all accounts, Gorsuch put in a stellar performance in his confirmation hearing. Even the New York Times conceded that "if Democrats harbored any hope of raising doubts about Judge Gorsuch among Republicans, they came nowhere close." But as soon as the hearing ended, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that he was going to filibuster the nomination anyway. Gorsuch, Schumer said, "was groomed by the Federalist Society...

But everybodyís whacking Rep. Devin Nunes around like a piŮata right now, and itís easy to forget heís raising a perfectly valid concern.

    If the Republican's ObamaCare replacement plan ends up looking an awful lot like ObamaCare, here's one reason why: Prominent conservatives have already conceded defeat. In his latest column, Charles Krauthammer declared that "For all its catastrophic flaws, ObamaCare changed expectations. Does any Republican propose returning to a time when you can be denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition?" Another well-known conservative commentator, George Will, wrote almost exactly the same thing in his column that just posted. "It is unknowable whether Barack Obama produced an American consensus in favor of a government obligation to guarantee universal access to health...

    Determining one's own sex or that of another used to be a simple matter. First, there was the matter of appearance, whether a person looked like a male or looked like a female. If appearance produced some uncertainties, one could determine sex by examining a person's birth certificate. If appearance and a birth certificate produced uncertainties, the ultimate, absolute proof of sex was a person's chromosomes; XX marked a female, and XY marked a male. Case closed. But those old-fashioned simple methods of identifying sex have changed. In fact, relying on those old tried-and-true methods of sex identification qualifies one...

Big spending "conservative" congressman Hal Rogers calls President Donald Trump's proposed budget cuts "draconian, careless and counterproductive." But Trump's cuts are good! Why do politicians always assume that government spending helps people? It always has unintended consequences. Foreign aid is attached to idealistic notions like ending global poverty and making friends abroad. Politicians also thought that by rewarding countries that behave well, America could steer the whole world toward responsible practices like holding elections and allowing companies (especially U.S. companies) to operate without interference.

    As habitually practiced since only the mid-1990s, by doing absolutely nothing, with almost no accountability accruing to them (using the ďno-debate stealth filibusterĒ), the minority in the U.S. Senate can easily and nearly always either stop every legislative effort from even coming to the floor, or far more insidiously, sabotage it by requiring a ďdirt and ice creamĒ result. Unlike the 60-vote rule for debate cloture to get to a final vote (which gives the minority the power to extend and even perpetuate debate), this more recent application of the 60-vote rule gave the minority the power of continuous...

These are serious allegations. But both Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, who also testified,...

If it fails, it will be a disaster for Trump and the GOP. If it passes, it will hardly be a victory.

Talking to George Washington University Law School professor Jeffrey Rosen, Williams, known for his active fantasy life, imagined this left-wing dream scenario: ‚Äú...a question we keep asking, perhaps just to keep things interesting, what is the chance that this nominee could be a...

    During the second break in day two of Neil Gorsuch‚Äôs confirmation hearing Tuesday afternoon, CNN detected some wind in their sails as they swooned and congratulated their Democratic allies for supposedly giving the ‚Äútesty‚ÄĚ Gorsuch ‚Äúa little bit more of a run for his money.‚ÄĚ CNN found nothing to object to in the first break around lunchtime, so it was inevitable that they would concoct some sort of liberal spin to give Senate Democrats a boost.http://www.mrctv.org/videos/giddy-cnn-swoons-democrats-are-giving-testier-gorsuch-run-his-money CNN Supreme Court analyst Joan Biskupic could barely contain her enthusiasm, gleefully hyping that Gorsuch was ‚Äúgetting a little testier‚ÄĚ and praised ‚ÄúSenators Durbin,...

    RUSH: Neil Gorsuch gave a great, great, great performance today. Heís the first justice nominee ó the very first ó who has been able to ďget away with,Ē quote/unquote, telling liberal senators that there are no little guys, there are no big guys, there are no rich guys, there are no poor guys in court. This guy is masterful. Theyíre trying to destroy Jimmy Stewart, essentially, and theyíre going to fail. BREAK TRANSCRIPT RUSH: It has been amusing, satisfying, pleasing to watch a little bit of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch, because the man really...

    The Los Angeles Times published a front-page story Monday on Ivanka Trump that highlighted she was ¬ďcomplicit¬Ē in her father¬ís evil. The headline read: ¬ďShe once made liberals hopeful -- Ivanka Trump is now seen as 'complicit' in her father's agenda.¬Ē Times reporter Barbara Demick promoted four radical-left artists from New York who started an Instagram page called Dear Ivanka to supposedly lobby her to mend her father¬ís ways. In one Instagram post, they used the dictionary to define their accusation. Ivanka¬ís involved in crime or generic wrongdoing: dear_ivanka com¬∑plic¬∑it k…ômňąplisit/ adjective 1. involved with others in an illegal activity...
  • The Secret Service Needs Help: Five Recent ĎBreachesí Under Trump

    There were a series of breaches and scandals involving the Secret Service under the Obama administration. For example, during President Obamaís first year in office, Washington couple Tareq and Michaele Salahi crashed his first state dinner after getting past security. Later, in November 2011, a man with a semiautomatic rifle parked near the White House and opened fire at the building. No one was injured, but former first family member Sasha Obama was inside at the time. The Washington Post in 2014 reported that the Secret Service apparently didnít know it happened until later. Between 2012 and 2014, there were...

  • Editorial: Supreme Court needs judges like Gorsuch because America has leaders like Schumer

    Washington Examiner ^ | ē 3/20/17 3:00 AM | WASHINGTON EXAMINER
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., last Wednesday dragged out his feeble effort to block Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the Supreme Court. Ahead of today's confirmation hearing, he trotted out three people, representing supposed "victims" of Gorsuch's jurisprudence. He hoped to demonstrate that Gorsuch is hostile toward workers and cancer patients, and takes the side of "the powerful" and corporations against the "powerless" little guy. Never mind that in all three cases, one of which was decided unanimously by a three judge panel that included one of former President Bill Clinton's appointees, Gorsuch scrupulously applied the text of the laws...

    I suppose that the ritual of humiliation is a very big part of being human. Think of school bullies and high school mean girls. Think of Mrs. Norris dealing it out to country cousin Fanny Price in Mansfield Park. Think of show trials and the necessary indoctrination of college freshmen about the evils of whiteness. Deal out humiliation if you can, endure it if you must. But then there is the image of Jesus, the Son of God, humiliated on the Cross. What was that all about? It is obvious to me that the left has recently stepped up the...

    American tourists in foreign countries once had the reputation of believing that if they shouted loud enough the dumb foreigner standing there with a puzzled look on his face would somehow understand what they were saying. A stereotype that Liberals are now mindlessly acting out with the American people with their 24/7 rabid denunciations of President Trump. Some of their words make sense but simply don't compute, as when the Liberals describe President Trump as a ďfailed billionaire.Ē The man flew everywhere in his own 757, he owned golf courses and hotels all over the world and before he moved...

    People like thinking the best of themselves, which is partially why we have ďtrigger warnings,Ē ďmicroaggressionsĒ and claims of ďtaking offenseĒ -- so these complainers donít have to come to terms with the fact theyíre spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats. Hereís how it works: when accusing you of ďmicroaggressing,Ē the truth is that, generally, these snowflakes just donít happen to like what youíre saying. But shouting ďShut up! I hate that type of expression!Ē makes you seem intolerant. So to preserve your image and self-image, you use the ploy of shifting the onus onto the one whose speech you want to...

    Every once in a while, the Jordanian people are given a chance to express how they really feel about Israel. Itís ugly. Jordan is the country to Israelís east with which Israel has had a formal peace for 23 years. And its people hate Israel, and Jews, even more than the Iranians do. Every once in a while, the Jordanian people are given a chance to express how they really feel about Israel. Itís ugly. Twenty years ago, on March 13, 1997, 7th and 8th grade girls from the AMIT Fuerst junior high school for girls in Beit Shemesh packed...
