By Ann Coulter on Front Page Mag Time to finally turn tough talk into action. Let’s compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done. In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, …

Greg Holt FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

Written by Onan Coca Last year Virginia Democrat (and all around bad guy) Jim Moran (D-VA) made some pretty remarkable (and wrong-headed) comments about members of Congress not being paid well enough. There are too many members living and sleeping in their offices and it’s wrong.

Greg Holt FEATURED ARTICLES, MIDDLE EAST, WORLD NEWS 0 Comments

On Wednesday evening, President Obama gave his long-awaited speech spelling out his carefully planned strategy to deal with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The speech was brief by Obama standards – approximately fifteen minutes – and well-articulated. Sadly, it was also deeply problematic on virtually every strategic and rhetorical level. Obama led off his speech by stating that his own policies in drawing down American troops had somehow forwarded American security, although he …

Time to Replace Congress with Obama Suggestion Boxes?

Greg Holt FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

We’ve all heard the statement, “We are a nation of laws, not men.” For hundreds of years that has been true, until now. It seems we are now a nation of one man who makes law. Obama’s defenders have, in lockstep, continued to state that, in fact, Obama has issued far fewer executive orders as have past presidents. Now, any non-sycophantic thinking American would retort that it’s not the quantity but the quality, or in …

Greg Holt BREAKING NEWS, POLITICAL, WORLD NEWS 0 Comments

KABUL — The Afghan “Pentagon” being built here is a sprawling symbol of U.S. generosity. The American government has already spent about $107 million — double the initial estimate — on the five-story Defense Ministry headquarters, which will include state-of-the-art bunkers and the second-largest auditorium in Kabul. But now, four years after the groundbreaking, construction crews have had to effectively halt their work. The reason: The U.S. government has run out of money for the …
