  • Empowering Obamacareís Enforcers?

    Little remains of former President Barack Obamaís signature healthcare legislation, Obamacare. Donald Trump has made sure of that. Through his executive branchís authority, the president has managed to do what Congress hasnít and chip away at the legislation, piece by piece. Indeed, the Trump administrationís expansion of ďskinnyĒ health insurance plans, as well as its move to end cost-sharing reduction payments, should absolutely be commended. And the president is not done yet. According to an analysis from The Hill, President Trumpís recently-proposed budget calls for additional massive cuts to Obamacare ó $844 billion over the next ten years.† Without a...
  • Trump Overturned Obama's Conventional Wisdom

    President Donald Trump spent the first three years of his presidency taking a flamethrower to elite conventional wisdom. Before the president, an "elite" consensus had formed that lost manufacturing and industrial jobs were gone for good, "free" trade was good for America, and American leadership was about managing America's decline in the face of a rising power in China. These positions were so assumed to be true that politicians would spout them off in the same way they might observe that the sky is blue or that knowing the Clintons is hazardous to a person's health. The "you didn't build...

    Given Americaís deplorable history of slavery and segregation, all Americans should be proud that their country had the courage to elect its first black president. With invaluable assistance from a cheerleading media, a young and charismatic Barack Obama was swept into the most powerful job in the world with the enthusiastic endorsement of a sizable majority of the American electorate. More than three years after leaving office, he remains one of the most influential political figures in America. But is that plaudit warranted? These days, a look at his past suggests an exceptionally anti-American orientation, and as Obama's Democrats now...

    When Barack Obama vowed five days before he was first elected to fundamentally transform the nation he soon would lead, few who voted for him thought to ask themselves, Transform it into what? America always needs improving, but is it such a sorry place that it must be fundamentally transformed? Apparently so, according to Obama. And that goes double for the Democrat who would follow him, post-President Trump, Bernie Sanders. To fundamentally transform a nation means to bring about profound changes to its principles, values and institutions. In the case of America, that means radically transforming the economic and governing...

    The "expert" predictions of economic disaster should Donald Trump win the 2016 election did not occur. Under Trump, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq composite have reached historical highs while unemployment for blacks and Hispanics have hit historical lows. In the wake of Trump's undeniable economic success, what is the 2020 Democratic Party argument for why voters should back their candidate over Trump? The morning after Trump's election, Paul Krugman, economics professor and columnist for The New York Times, wrote: "Now comes the mother of all adverse effects -- and what it brings with it is a regime that...

    As a conservative, you might want to stay mad at the insurance companies, because they are still gaming the system to make even more money off of Obamacare. †Right now, they are supporting legislation that will help health insurance companies to make even more money while harming doctors, patients and service providers. The lead trade group for health insurers, Americaís Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), were critical in helping to get Obamacare passed. They loved the idea of the federal government mandating that all Americans be forced to purchase their product. Healthcare Finance reported on March 23, 2012, ďin March 2009,...

    Ten years ago, the Supreme Court overturned portions of a federal law that empowered government to dictate how Americans who were not connected to any candidates and political parties could practice their inherent right of free expression. It was one of the greatest free speech decisions in American history. The case of Citizens United revolved around state efforts to ban a conservative nonprofit group from showing a critical documentary it produced of then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton right before the 2008 Democratic primary elections. At the time, the McCain-Feingold Act made it illegal for corporations and labor unions to engage in...

    Something remarkable just happened. The Houston Astros were punished in a severe way for having cheated to win the 2017 World Series. Major League Baseball suspended the team's manager and general manager for a year. It took away the Astros' first- and second-round draft picks for the next two years. It also fined the team $5 million. And then the Astros fired the manager and general manager, who led them to a World Series win. That's how you deal with cheaters -- short of a prison term. That's how you send a message that cheating will not be tolerated. That's...

    The cult of Pelosi isn't just a 'hot take' or a 'be smart,' it's a mindset through which Washington's media elites interpret the world. It's false, and the harsh light of reality easily shows as much. There are many cults in Washington, D.C. The Founding Church of Scientology sits between Dupont and Logan Circles. The earth-worshiping Defenders of Wildlife are just a few blocks south, their entrance guarded by imposing bronze grey wolves. One block north, the Human Rights Campaign dispatches starry-eyed adherents with clipboards to recruit followers, and to the east lie the child-harvesters. Two blocks away, the remnants...

    In 2008, Democrats nominated for president a first-term U.S. senator with no serious legislative experience, Barack Obama. They nominated him over the long-championed, long-celebrated presumptive heir apparent to the Democratic leadership, Hillary Clinton. Obama was, of course, the first black Democratic nominee, and he would be the first black president. Yet in 2020, 12 years later, we have been informed by the media that Democrats are ensconced in racism anew. Why? First, because Democrats refused to activate in support of awkwardly robotic Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who is black; second, because Democrats refused to activate in support of wild-eyed former...

    Who do we believe? The CIA director or the people ideologically dedicated to protecting Obama's precious Iran deal? When watching the Obama team -- whether they are anchoring CNN coverage or mouthing off on MSNBC -- it is striking just how invested they are in denying reality. After Iran launched its functionally impotent attack against American positions in Iraq, Trump rightly pointed out the Obama administration helped Iran launch those missiles. The pushback from media fact checkers and Obama surrogates was fast and furious -- and also more dedicated to protecting Obama than the truth. The truth is that the...

    Congressman Ro Khanna (D-CA) claimed Tuesday there were no embassy protests or deaths of American contractors under the Obama administration. Speaking with Fox News‚Äôs ‚ÄúAmerica‚Äôs Newsroom,‚ÄĚ the lawmaker disagreed with President Trump for arguing that President Obama had an opportunity to take out Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani.‚ÄúThe president took on former president Barack Obama in an interview, saying, ‚ÄėKnowing what we know today and knowing what had been going on, there was an opportunity before to take out Soleimani,'‚ÄĚ host Sandra Smith said.¬†‚ÄúDo you think there were any missed opportunities in the past that would have prevented Iran from...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's understanding of the constitutional authority of the president when it comes to using military force seems to depend on the party affiliation of the president in question. Pelosi supported former President Barack Obama -- a Democrat -- using military force against the Libyan regime of Moammar Gadhafi without prior congressional authorization. But she opposed President Donald Trump -- a Republican -- using military force in Iraq to kill the leaders of two State Department-designated terrorist organizations: Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran's Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, leader of Kata'ib Hezbollah. On constitutional grounds,...

    Right Wing media usually portray Obamaís actions with Iran as being a diplomatic failure, initiated because he wanted a Nuclear Deal as part of his legacy; but if we ascribe his intentions towards Iran differently, then we are left with an entirely different perspective from which to view the current situation. If we couple a description of Obamaís actions to the results of his actions we could say that what he did was helpful to Iranís military objectives.One might even be able to conjecture that the recent Iranian attacks against US assets are being spurred on by the likes of...

    Barack Obama squandered the opportunity of a lifetime to become a transformational president. That was his signature ambition, obvious enough in his infamous remarks about how he would fundamentally transform the country. He ended up focused on identity politics, rather than any transformation for the better of the economy. But the economy is what concerns ordinary Americans, not identity politics. Had Obama addressed that while he was president, he could have solidified a winning coalition for the Democrats that could have lasted for a very long time. At this point, history will now find him responsible for his party losing...

    Radical changes imposed on our military by progressives, begun in earnest during the Obama administration, are negatively impacting our combat readiness and jeopardizing the lives of our men and women in uniform and, ultimately, our national security. In Stand Down: How Social Justice Warriors Are Sabotaging Americaís Military, author James Hasson elucidates how Barack Obama fundamentally changed military culture to make our nation less secure. Hasson, a former Army captain, Army Ranger School graduate, and Afghanistan veteran, argues that military readiness was sacrificed for identity politics and progressive rhetoric. He lists examples such as policies that established ďsafe spaces,Ē prohibited...

    Christianity Today officially jumped the shark when they called for the impeachment of President Trump.  Why were they not advocating for the same thing during the Obama years? When I voted for Donald Trump, my vote was not for a Sunday School Teacher but rather for the person who would keep my wife, family, and nation safe.  We had a Sunday School teacher named Jimmy Carter as President and yet were much better off as a nation under Ronald Reagan, a divorced man (albeit an evangelical Christian himself).  Would I like a Sunday School teacher?  Absolutely but as president, I...

    From San Francisco to Amherst, hungover activists greeted Thursday‚Äôs mid-afternoon sun, rolling out of their waterbeds in the warm belief that Donald J. Trump was no longer president of the United States. Of course, he is still the president. Indeed, he might not even have been constitutionally impeached yet. That‚Äôs because every chapter of this story, from accusations to investigations, charges to impeachment, has been pure political theater. ‚ÄúVery sadly now‚Ķ I solemnly and sadly open the debate on the impeachment,‚ÄĚ Pelosi announced before Wednesday‚Äôs vote. ‚ÄúHe gave us no choice,‚ÄĚ she concluded.The speaker and her allies wore black, of...

    Investigative journalist Huey Freeman has written a compelling book challenging the notion that Border Patrol Agent Nick Ivie was killed by friendly fire. In Who Shot Nick Ivie?, Freeman lays out the case that contrary to the governmentís claims, smugglers, probably from the Sinaloa cartel, shot Ivie in an ambush of him and two other agents. And he explains why the Obama administration put that spin out there. While working one night in October 2012, Ivie was dispatched to check out a sensor alarm that had been tripped near the border between Arizona and Mexico. Two other agents followed him...

    Our betters in the MSM, and related ruling-class mouthpieces, have set the narrative: the lackluster, too-crazy pack of Democrat presidential candidates, even with a few token billionaires, will ultimately give way to the entry of Michelle Obama into the race. The former First Lady, author of an apparently best-selling memoir, will inject palpable blue energy throughout the nation, return black America to a 95+% Democrat voting bloc, consolidate the Obama voting coalitions that won two presidential elections, and the evil interloper Trump will be sent packing. Donít buy this narrative. In a country of 320+ million people, there is always...
