    6 Big Issues on Trump’s Plate for UN and NATO Leaders

    In a defining stretch of his presidency, Donald Trump will spend the next two days meeting with leaders of two international bodies he has criticized—the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg will meet with Trump on Thursday and U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres will visit the White House on Friday.

    The meetings come after the Trump administration’s actions in Israel and Iran irked some European allies, and ahead of a likely meeting June 12 in Singapore between Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. READ MORE...

  • The Left’s War Against Prosperity in Seattle

    The Left’s War Against Prosperity in Seattle

    The left is sleepless in Seattle, working overtime to squander years of economic success.

    Seattle is, by many measures, one of the fastest-growing cities in America if not the fast-growing city.

    A few big tech companies, including Amazon and Microsoft, plus other large, successful businesses such as Boeing and Starbucks, have fueled this explosive rise.

    But prosperity hasn’t necessarily bred contentment, as the traditionally left-wing city turned on the elements that made it rich.

    In the latest move to soak the productive part of the city’s economy, the Seattle City Council voted 9-0 to approve a new “head tax” imposing a $250-per-worker charge on companies making over $20 million a year. READ MORE...

  • Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Shows the US Is Unique. Just Like Israel.

    Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Shows the US Is Unique. Just Like Israel.

    I was privileged to attend the dedication of the new American Embassy in Jerusalem on May 14—an event of enormous import that will remain with me forever.

    I am deeply grateful to Ambassador David Friedman and his wife, Tammy, for inviting me to this historic event. The United States recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is important not just for the United States and Israel but also for the entire world.

    We might start thinking about this by considering the unique relationship between these two countries. READ MORE...

    Trump Judge Tally Setting Records Despite Unprecedented Democrat Obstruction

    The Senate confirmations on May 15 of two more of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees bring the total number approved so far in the 115th Congress to 39.

    Twenty-one of the 39 have been to appeals courts. The appeals court total is the highest at this point of any president in history.

    Trump has made 114 nominations to the U.S. district courts, courts of appeals, and the Supreme Court—again, more than any of his predecessors at the same point in their presidencies.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has held hearings on 81 of those nominees, also ahead of the pace under previous presidents. READ MORE...

    Andrew Cuomo’s Fatwa Against the NRA (and Gun Owners Like You)

    fatwa (proclamation) has been issued by the State of New York against the National Rifle Association (and gun owners like you): “I urge companies in New York State to revisit any ties they may have to the NRA and consider their reputations, and responsibility to the public,” tweeted the Ayatollah Andrew Cuomo, aka the Governor of New York State.

    Conservative firearm advocates “have no place in the State of New York,” declared Ayatollah Cuomo.

    After you have bowed and faced Albany, you are instructed to read NYS’ holy website: Anti-gun sharia is imposed upon insurers and banks. READ MORE...

  • YouTube Allows Violent Depiction of Massacre in "This Is America" for Children to View - Censors Those Who Criticize It

    YouTube Allows Violent Depiction of Massacre in “This Is America” for Children to View – Censors Those Who Criticize It

    A video depicting social justice on YouTube that has garnered nearly 140 million views that depicts the shooting of a man in the head and a the massacre of a gospel choir while promoting social justice continues to be up for children to view in clear violation of YouTube’s own Terms of Service (ToS).  However, while it is a disturbing video, what is even more concerning is YouTube’s utter censorship of a video that criticizes both YouTube and the contents of the video.

    Childish Gambino’s music video for This is America stars Donald Glover and portrays how he views America as nothing more than white people out to murder blacks. READ MORE...

  • Seattle Proves that Government is Always the Problem - Never the Solution

    Seattle Proves that Government is Always the Problem – Never the Solution

    You may have heard of the new tax being levied on companies in the Seattle area. IBD reports that the Seattle Politburo (city council), “unanimously passed a ‘head tax’ of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city’s swelling homeless population.”

    Allow me to translate. The $48 million in new taxes will go toward, but not quite make it to its final destination. Oh, some of will be used to build “affordable housing” and provide “emergency” services, but a good percentage will likely be siphoned off and spent on increasing the size of the Seattle bureaucracy and increased regulation. It’s what liberal statists do. They see a pile of money and recklessly spend it. They also regulate, to the point of strangulation. It will be déjà-vu all over again. READ MORE...
