Caitlyn Jenner for U.S. Senate: Why not?

Should Republicans be excited about Caitlyn Jenner’s potential run for U.S. Senate in 2018? Jenner said she “would look for a senatorial run,” when talking with radio host John Catsimatidis. Jenner said, “Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job […]

Trump, Jr.’s meeting with a Russian sounds scandalous, only if you don’t read the facts

‘They finally caught Trump colluding with the Russians’ — is the line every major mainstream media organization is implying this morning. The latest news of Donald Trump, Jr. and others from the campaign meeting with a Russian attorney last June sounds scandalous, but it’s only scandalous if you don’t read the facts of the meeting. The […]

Comey and Lynch broke the law, coordinated messaging with Clinton campaign [VIDEO]

Former FBI Director James Comey admitted he was listening to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s directive to call the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s government-related emails a “matter” rather than an investigation — following the Clinton campaign’s messaging on the scandal. Red Alert Politics Editor Ron Meyer joined Fox News, saying that this would be a […]

It’s 2017. This Republican is trying to gay-bash his way to statewide nomination

Elections are happening in 2017 in Virginia and New Jersey. In Virginia, voters head to the polls next Tuesday, and contentious primaries for Lieutenant Governor are dominating the headlines. In a three-way race on both sides, one of the three Democrats called for President Trump’s impeachment last week, and now, one of the three Republicans […]

After Trump rejects Paris Accord, liberals embrace federalism and localism

Democrats, environmental activists, and many young Americans are distressed about President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord. Social media has been on fire. But, out of this fire has come an unexpected and positive development: the Left is embracing federalism and localism to solve a problem close to their hearts. Rather […]

Trump to end Obama’s Cuba deal? Cuba needs more free trade, not less

According to reports, President Trump is considering reversing President Obama’s actions toward Cuba. For decades, America’s attempts to isolate Cuba never produced the desired outcome. We wanted regime change. We wanted to punish dictators who worked with our enemies to threaten us. We wanted our protectionist policies to hurt the Cuban economy so badly that […]

It’s not mean to say ‘healthcare is not a right’

From some of the reactions on Twitter, one would think the newly crowned Miss USA Kara McCullough had committed some sort of speech crime. In the question and answer portion of the Miss USA content, one of the hosts asked, “Do you think affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege and […]

Fred Upton, unlike niece Kate Upton, might not be perfect

Rep. Fred Upton, the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, should resign immediately. For conservatives and libertarians, he couldn’t be further from perfect — unlike his niece, Kate Upton. Fred Upton, a Republican, announced yesterday that he wouldn’t support the Obamacare repeal and replacement compromise plan because it’s too conservative. His website says, “I support […]

Big Sis, Stop funding illegals over free speech — or resign

During the last few weeks, we’ve noticed two storylines emerging separately out of the University of California system, headed by former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano (known by critics as ‘Big Sis‘). The first was an increase in funding and focus for “undocumented” students, culminating in a taxpayer-funded trip for Napolitano to Mexico. From our […]

Yes, Glenn Beck is running a “smear campaign” on Tomi Lahren

Inside baseball is pretty lame, especially conservative inside baseball on Twitter. The latest conservative Twitter carfuffle happened because employees from The Blaze and their close friends took offense at our headline, “Glenn Beck countersues Tomi Lahren, starts smear campaign.” Unsurprisingly, friends and allies of Glenn Beck did not like the characterization that his comments and the contents of […]

Yes, taxation can be legalized theft — especially for millennials

Tax Day is tomorrow. All Americans should calculate how much of their income is going to the government — federal, state, and local — and ask themselves: am I willingly giving up this money? When a robber takes your property, this is classified as theft. Many libertarians argue that taxation is legalized theft, theft by […]

We endorse ‘Millennial’ Maxine Waters to run for president in 2020

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has become a darling of the Left. She’s raked everyone over the coals from Donald Trump to Bill O’Reilly. And now, the website Salon believes that Waters should be president. Salon’s Editor-in-chief D. Watkins offered five reasons why Waters would be a great president from her going after Republicans to being […]

IWF defends giving Mike Pence “Working for Women” Award

When Playboy, Teen Vogue, New York Magazine, Mic, Vice, Raw Story, and Jezebel all attack you — you must be doing something right. Left-wing magazines loved that Chelsea Clinton is a “Lifetime Impact” honoree for doing literally nothing. However, they are piling on the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) for giving Vice President Mike Pence the […]

How Donald Trump could become the first woman president

Professors recently ran an interesting test on the 2016 presidential debates: What if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump swapped genders? How would audiences react? In their test, NYU Steinhardt clinical associate professor Joe Salvatore said, “One audience member described the Trump message as she was able to hear it as hummable lyrics, while Clinton may have […]

Trump’s best speech: Tonight he became president

Who would have guessed one year ago today that Donald Trump would be delivering an address to Congress? Who would have guess that both sides of the aisle would stand and applaud multiple times? Tonight may have been the turning point for Donald Trump the politician. This was the first time were he looked, sounded, […]

Liberal logic: Devos’ praise of HBCUs is like celebrating Jim Crow

Did you know that mainstream liberals think Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are a “Jim Crow education system”? That’s right, HBCUs are now an enemy of the Left. Why? Because President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy Devos are about to help them out significantly with an Executive Order, and Democrats need a way […]

Spend $54 billion more on defense? Cut the $125 billion in waste first

Foreign policy hawks led the #NeverTrump movement. They led the opposition to Donald Trump’s rise to the Republican nomination. Many writers from our brother publication, the Weekly Standard, led the charge on this front. Trump ran as a noninterventionist who didn’t want us to be the world’s policeman. Yet, somehow, President Trump’s first budget is a neocon […]

Dear Oscars: Remember Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance

When will Hollywood liberals learn that most of America doesn’t want to hear about politics from you? Well, to be fair, one performer proved she learned. Lady Gaga showed she knew that, and we hope she teaches the grace she expressed during the Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show to the Hollywood elites gathering tonight for […]
