A blueprint for prosperity

When a golden spike was driven into the rails connecting the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads at Promontory Summit, Utah Territory on May 10, 1869, interstate railways annihilated distance in the space of one generation and transformed America into a unified nation from coast to coast.

Reaping the benefits of Trump's first year

With several weeks of January still to go, President Trump is wrapping up a masterful first year in office. Despite — or perhaps in part because of — unprecedented, unremitting hostility from the entire American establishment, Mr. Trump has redirected American policy to serve American interests. America — and the world — is already reaping the benefits.

Remember when global warming meant the planet was supposed to, well, warm up? Temperatures would rise, and all manner of ecological calamity would ensue?

Don't believe everything you hear

By any measure, most everything connected to the economy was in a downward trend during the last years of the Obama presidency. So when the mainstream media and the Democratic leadership tell you that any good news you hear about the stock market, the economy and outlook for the country is due to President Obama's policies having just started to work, don't believe them.

Reason for anti-Trump digging

Many who opposed Donald Trump winning the last election took some solace when they suddenly heard about the "deep-state" and "shadow government," and President Obama buying a house near the White House with his close confidante Valerie Jarrett. They thought somehow this could keep the Trump administration within the guidelines of law and civility and stop the new president from doing things they didn't want him to do.

New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner watched Donald Trump fill out his papers to be on the nation's earliest presidential primary ballot in 2015. Mr. Gardner says he will remain on the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, though he disagrees with voter fraud allegations made by the panel's vice chairman about his state.

A day for cheaters

Democrats, other liberal activists and even one of its own appointed members cheered the demise last week of Donald Trump's Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The cheers may be premature.

Oprah speech powerful, but not presidential

- The Washington Times

Oprah Winfrey gave a good speech at the Golden Globes -- a rousing, pertinent, timely and even touching speech. But that's not the same as saying it was presidential. And it's certainly not the same as accepting Winfrey herself would made a good presidential candidate.
