During the impeachment proceedings held against President Donald Trump earlier this year, I was at first tempted to refer to the high-profile House Democrats who were driving the process (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, for example) as “rogue Democrats.” At the time, I asserted at …

Over the last few years, I’ve heard more and more casual acquaintances complain that they no longer have any idea of where to go to for reporting they can actually believe. These were not supporters of President Donald Trump nor even conservatives, but their frustration did stem in a large …

A few weeks ago, I deconstructed an interview featuring Democratic strategist James Carville, wherein he bemoaned the prospect of Bernie Sanders becoming the Democratic presidential nominee. Generally, Carville believes that Sanders as the nominee will all but guarantee a victory for President Donald Trump in the general election. Specifically, Carville’s objections …

Earlier this week, CNBC’s Jake Novak penned a column entitled “Bernie Sanders is the front-runner because of how we raised our kids.” Not surprisingly, the piece has garnered a respectable amount of attention from conservative commentators and has fired discussions around why so many younger voters are aligned with an out-and-out communist …

This week, a former top Treasury Department official pleaded guilty in federal court on conspiracy charges for leaking confidential banking reports associated with members of the 2016 Trump campaign. Prior to October 2018 – when she was arrested with a government-issued flash drive chock-full of sensitive documents – Natalie Edwards, 41, …

There had been no real progress on the battlefield in half a decade, nor through the doomed Paris Peace Talks, the on-again, off-again negotiations that many …

The Dec. 10 shootings in Jersey City, New Jersey, which left six people, including the two gunmen and a veteran detective dead, and which began at a local cemetery and ended at a kosher market, have given rise to many questions and a distinct level of puzzlement among those attempting to …
