The Left Targets Supreme Court With ‘Packing’ Threat, ‘Shortlist’ of Activist Nominees

US Must Prevent Rise of New ISIS Caliphate in Syria Following Our Troop Withdrawal
The United States did not green-light the Turkish incursion into Syria. The U.S. did, however, fail to deter the incursion, and it failed to broker any kind of deal between Turkey and the YPG, the armed Kurdish militia fighting the Islamic State in northern Syria.

Trump’s ‘Abysmal’ Poll Numbers? What About Those of Merkel, Macron, May and Trudeau?
About a year into President Donald Trump’s first term, the jury for much of the country and for most of the major media has returned its verdict: Trump is a failure. Trump is incompetent.

I got fired for calling out liberal hypocrisy on Clintons
It was bizarre watching KABC TalkRadio in Los Angeles – my hypocritical ex-employer – hold a televised press conference. It turns out that one of the station’s news anchors, Leeann Tweeden, claims Sen. Al Franken groped her. In 2006, Tweeden said, before Franken became a senator, he and she participated in a USO tour to
