    Three US Aircraft Carriers Directed Toward South Korean Shores Amid mounting tensions in the East Asia, the Pentagon has directed three US aircraft carriers toward the Korean Peninsula, South Korean media reported quoting governmental sources. TOKYO (Sputnik) — Three US aircraft carriers, USS Carl Vinson, USS Ronald Reagan and USS Nimitz, will enter the Sea of Japan next week, Yonhap News Agency reported, citing a South Korean government source. Washington and Seoul are discussing joint drills, which will include the three aircraft carriers, with USS Carl Vinson expected to enter the Sea of Japan by April 25 and other ships...
  • Ronald Reagan reminds us what we're up against

    The taxpayer – that’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take a civil-service exam. Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. Millions of individuals making their own decisions in the marketplace will always allocate resources better than any centralized government planning process. How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin....

    President Trump has succeeded in picking the most conservative Cabinet of the modern era, and possibly ever, even besting the team put together by former President Reagan, according to a scorecard from the American Conservative Union, host of the annual CPAC convention. ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp told Secrets that Trump's team, made up in part with House and Senate lawmakers graded by the group over the years, has a 91.52 percent conservative rating, significantly surpassing Reagan's by 28 points.

    Editor’s Note: This report originally appeared at the American Spectator. I've been getting e-mails from bewildered colleagues asking about a survey of presidential scholars that determined that Barack Obama is the 12th best president in the history of the United States, putting him near the top quartile of our presidents. How can this be? I, too, was mystified, especially given that I participated in the survey. The survey was conducted by the impeccably fair C-SPAN. Few sources do their job like C-SPAN does. If you want truly unfiltered news, C-SPAN is unrivaled for its ability to simply place a camera...

    Stories surfaced this year to the effect that federal employees would quit if Donald Trump were elected. Unfortunately, that's not likely to happen. "Most of what we think of as federal law is written by federal agencies," Benjamin Ginsberg, a professor at Johns Hopkins pointed out recently at the Cato Institute. "In the most recent year available, Congress passed 218 pieces of legislation, not all of them substantive, while federal agencies added 150,000 rules, many of them important, for example, Taft-Hartley [right-to-work] regulations." "So the Department of Labor is writing new law nominally based on some ancient statute." The last...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama is about to face a wave of intense scrutiny as he seeks confirmation to become attorney general and head the Justice Department in President-elect Donald Trump's upcoming administration. Trump said Friday that it was an "honor to nominate" a "world-class legal mind" to the position. Sessions said, should he be confirmed, that he will give "all my strength to advance" its "highest ideals" and will be dedicated to "fairness and impartiality." But Sessions is likely to face heavy examination over his overall record, as well as decades-old allegations of racism that are now certain to...

    It has been 30 years since the tax code was last reformed. By signing the Tax Reform Act of 1986, President Ronald Reagan reduced income tax rates for every American family and business, simplified the code, and encouraged strong economic growth.Yet today, the code is far more complex than it has ever been, growth remains stagnant, and businesses are unable to compete against foreign competitors. Regardless of who occupies the White House next year, tax reform must be on the agenda.Tax reform should not be viewed as a partisan issue. Both the right and the left agreed in 1986...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 03/18/2014 | Paul Bois
    The founder of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, notorious for leading hateful protests against gay rights, is actually a Democrat with long history of endorsing Democratic candidates. On Tuesday, Politico provided some background on Phelps' political history, most of which saw him endorsing Democrat candidates and running for office a number of times as a Democrat. In the 1990's, Phelps ran in three Kansas Democratic primaries for Governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving only 15% of the vote. He also ran for Senator in 1992, receiving 31% of the vote, and for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997....

    One has to admit that Donald isn’t everybody’s idea of a pious Presbyterian. Though he still maintains some loose connection with his parents’ confession, his behaviour is, how shall I put it, more Playboy than Presbyterian. And yet he won over Christians by a wide margin: 52 per cent of all Catholics, 58 per cent of all Protestants and 82 per cent of all evangelicals voted for him. The Catholic vote is particularly notable. After all, some 40 per cent of US Catholics are Hispanics, and, putting it mildly, Trump didn’t go out of his way to endear himself to...

  • Remarkably, Sarah Palin Plays Goldwater in Trump’s Reagan Revolution

    Libertarian Republic ^ | Nov. 10, 2016 | Josh Guckert
    Conservative columnist George Will is often keen on saying that Barry Goldwater, the man who suffered one of the most catastrophic defeats in American political history, was actually the victor. Will often states that, “We — 27,178,188 of us — who voted for him in 1964 believe he won, it just took 16 years to count the votes.” Will is of course referring to the massive landslide which Ronald Reagan won in 1980, thus leading to a phenomenon known as the “Reagan Revolution.” Un-coincidentally, Goldwater gave Reagan his start in politics with the former’s failed presidential campaign. Reagan famously made...

But I have to tell you -- and I know it's Indiana, but Monmouth, they're at the top of the poll in terms of respect and credibility in this particular polling season. I don't know. Maybe some of you expected to see a state poll with Trump up by 11 a week out, but I didn't. And I will guarantee you the Hillary camp didn't expect to see it. And they may try say, "Well, of course.

    Editor's note: Phyllis Schlafly passed away on September 5 at the age of 92. She will be missed. Donald Trump’s surprise visit to Mexico, where he met the Mexican president and discussed the many contentious issues between our two countries, reminds me of President Reagan’s important trip to Geneva in 1985. Reagan was more than willing to sit down with the Communist leader in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War. The 1985 Geneva summit was highly advertised as a potential showdown between Reagan and Gorbachev, the...
