    Donald Trump Jr., under fire for “outing” the alleged Ukraine phone call whistleblower, doubled down on his description of CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella as a Democratic Party operative who cried “like a little child” when his father beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Speaking at Virginia’s Liberty University to promote his new book, Trump mocked reports that he was the first to name the alleged whistleblower, and he said that a simple internet search would show the political leanings of Ciaramella. All you have to do is a little research, and you can see that this is a guy...

Schools such as Liberty University, Patrick Henry College, and Hillsdale College have seen a significant increase in students winning internships in the Republican administration as well as on Capitol Hill and the U.S. Supreme Court, and it follows 'a surge' in their graduates getting jobs in Washington. And since Trump became president, Liberty has placed 37 students through its Washington Fellowship program into House and Senate offices.....Michigan’s Hillsdale said its numbers were similar and...

"After the best week ever for @realDonaldTrump - no obstruction, no collusion, NYT admits @BarackObama did spy on his campaign, & the economy is soaring.

    An African-American pro-life speaker recently spoke at a Midwestern college and several members of the school’s student government declared the speaker “had made many students, staff, and faculty of color feel unheard, underrepresented, and unsafe on our campus.” On America’s politicized campuses, that hardly is news. However, these were not students at some notoriously leftist school like Oberlin; they were students at Wheaton College in Illinois, a well-known Christian college. Wheaton was the alma mater of the late evangelist Billy Graham along with three missionaries famously martyred in Ecuador in 1956. But today, a pro-life viewpoint that supposedly is common...
