As Donald Trump careers toward the election, it looks like his critics are going to try to tar him with his own campaign slogan, “America First.” It was, after all, the cry of those who wanted America to stay out of the fight against Hitler. They formed the “America First Committee” in 1940, even after the war in Europe had begun and the Nazis were gearing up for the Final Solution. The left is going to try to hang all this on Mr. Trump. This is going to be rich, let me just say, particularly coming from the Democrats. Imagine

A federal judge on Wednesday directed State Department officials and top aides to Hillary Clinton to answer questions under oath by June 29 about whether they intentionally thwarted federal open-records laws by allowing Clinton’s use of a private email server throughout her tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.The decision by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in Washington sets the stage for responses before July’s presidential nominating conventions — but does not ensure cooperation — from at least six current and former top officials, including Cheryl D. Mills, who was Clinton’s chief of staff at State; Huma

The rap on Donald Trump is he’s all bluster. The New York Times says he’s offering “incoherent mishmash.” Former GOP rival Ted Cruz claimed Trump has “no idea” how to fix the economy. Don’t believe it. The Trump campaign is putting forward proposals to fix problems from the long waits for medical care at Veterans Affairs facilities to the impending collapse of ObamaCare. Check out Trump’s economic plan, for starters. Unlike Hillary Clinton’s anti-business agenda, Trump’s plan would actually help unemployed Americans get back to work. Trump slashes the corporate-tax rate to 15 percent, down from the current

Election 2016: With Donald Trump now the certain nominee, Republicans have managed to pick the least reliably conservative candidate out of a field that started with some of the most experienced, dedicated and successful conservatives ever to have thrown their hats into the ring. And they’ve done so largely because the GOP “establishment” kept dropping the ball on conservative priorities. Go figure. That Trump is not a conservative should be obvious by now to anyone who hasn’t been drinking Trump Kool-Aid for the past 10 months. Just a few days ago, Trump claimed that “I’m a conservative,” and then went on to say “but at this

Like many conservative Republicans, Donald Trump was not my first choice for president, Rick Perry was. He, of course, never had a chance once the primary process was rigged by the GOPe bringing in John Kasich to bump Perry to the second tier of the debates. It’s taken Kasich forever to drop out but I had dozens of delusional emails from his campaign insisting that he was the only one who can beat Hillary. Now that Hillary, Obama and Soros’ Moveon.org are uniting to attack what appears to be our nominee, I believe the party should show solidarity in supporting

NEW YORK—Where were you the night Donald Trump killed the Republican Party as we knew it? Trump was right where he belonged: in the gilt-draped skyscraper with his name on it, Trump Tower in Manhattan, basking in the glory of his final, definitive victory. “I have to tell you, I’ve competed all my life,” Trump said, his golden face somber, his gravity-defying pouf of hair seeming to hover above his brow. “All my life I’ve been in different competitions—in sports, or in business, or now, for 10 months, in politics. I have met some of the most incredible competitors that I’ve

An official with the Department of Justice said the agency will no longer call people “felons” or “convicts” after they are released from prison because it is too hard on them emotionally. Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason wrote a piece in The Washington Post Wednesday saying “many of the formerly incarcerated men, women, and young people I talk with say that no punishment is harsher than being permanently branded a ‘felon’ or ‘offender.´” Mason said the decision is not to condone their behavior, but to use words to help them reenter society.

The party of Lincoln is in ruins. A minority of its primary voters have torched its founders’ legacy by voting for a man who combines old-school Democratic ideology, a bizarre form of hyper-violent isolationism, fringe conspiracy theories, and serial lies with an enthusiastic flock of online racists to create perhaps the most toxic electoral coalition since George Wallace. Then — to add insult to injury — multiple GOP leaders bulldozed the ashes by issuing nauseating calls for unity, foremost among them Reince Priebus:(Snip for tweet)Reince, you should resign rather than spending one more ounce of personal energy supporting a reprehensible

Of all Barack Obama’s unforgivable sins, his corruption and politicization of the Department of Justice ranks near the top. Under Eric Holder and now Loretta Lynch, DOJ has become a lunatic enforcer of far-left fantasies. The latest instance is DOJ’s letter to the Governor of North Carolina, claiming that North Carolina’s law requiring that bathrooms, locker rooms and so on be used by those of the proper sex–male or female, based on physical organs–violates the federal civil rights laws: Dear Governor McCrory: This letter is to inform you that the Department of Justice has determined that, as a result of compliance with

The tweets and emails started immediately after Donald Trump’s victory Tuesday night: “You’ve got a promise to keep, bub.” “Get ready to eat it.” “EAT IT!!!” To them, I say: Con gusto. Seven months ago I said I would eat an entire column, newsprint and ink, if Trump won the nomination, calculating that Republican voters were better than Trump. The Republican voters let me down: Though a majority didn’t support him, enough did, and no viable alternative arose. But you, the reader, have revived my faith in America. I put out a call for recipes and you responded, via Twitter, Facebook, email and the comments section.

The dictionary definition of “inane” stresses the adjectives “silly” and “stupid.” A better pair of descriptors could not be found for what the 2016 campaign has given us. Voter Tunnel Vision Voters have a long history in the open primary era of supporting candidates without regard to electability, leading Fred Barnes to call electability “the worst primary argument” in a recent article. Voters begin by conveniently presuming their preferred choice electable. Only during the general election campaign do these voters factor in electability. And that is how a party can come to be buried in an epic landslide. Compartmentalized Candidates Donald Trump lives in

Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV — an adviser to Kurdish troops in Mosul, Iraq — was killed Tuesday in an encounter with Islamic State militants. Keating, 31, born and raised in Phoenix, was a track star at Indiana University before joining the Navy after 9/11. Technically, Keating was not a combatant. He was an “adviser” who died in a firefight, rescuing other advisers under attack. Which is exactly as he should be remembered — as an American serviceman of high skill and valor, not because a grandfather of the same name had been a notable figure in the 1990s savings-and-loan crisis.

A bashful Bill Clinton took the stage in California Wednesday while campaigning for his wife, telling an admiring audience member that it had been a long time since a female had complimented him on his appearance. "You look great!" an audience member told Clinton, when he said he felt young. Clinton exhaled into his microphone and said that a young woman hadn´t flattered him on his looks in a while. "It´s been a long time since a girl said that to me," he said and laughed. The former president then lamented the inevitable aging process. "I usually get, ´you look good for a man your

They don´t have college degrees. They have few job prospects. They feel left behind. Nearly one-quarter of white men with only a high school diploma aren´t working. Many of these men, age 25 to 64, aren´t just unemployed ... they aren´t even looking for a job, according to federal data. Their college-educated peers, however, have fared much better. Only about one in 10 isn´t working. The plight of these blue collar workers is now in the national spotlight.

Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he would consider making Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) his running mate. “I respect Ted,” he told host Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor." "He was a very strong competitor. He really competed hard and tough." “He’s certainly a capable guy,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee added. "It’s something we can think about." Trump defeated Cruz in Tuesday’s Indiana GOP presidential primary, making him the presumptive nominee. Cruz suspended his Oval Office bid shortly afterward, saying that his results in the Hoosier State “foreclose” his path to the Republican presidential nomination. Trump on

Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach. The San Andreas fault is one of California’s most dangerous, and is the state’s longest fault. Yet for Southern California, the last big earthquake to strike the southern San Andreas was in 1857, when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured an astonishing 185 miles between Monterey County and the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles. It has been quiet since then — too quiet, said Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California

During a speech to residents of Flint, Michigan, whose drinking water was contaminated with lead, President Obama appeared to partly blame "a preference for small government" for the crisis. Bloomberg: In a speech to about 1,000 residents, Obama urged them to resist assumptions that their children have been permanently harmed by consuming water with lead, and blamed "a mindset that believes that less government is the highest good, no matter what." He didn’t mention Michigan’s Republican governor, Rick Snyder, who addressed the audience earlier and professes the virtues of smaller government. Snyder has borne much of the blame for the contamination. "I do

With the news that Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) will suspend his fruitless campaign for president Wednesday at 5PM it’s worth asking the obvious question: Why now? Kasich lost every single caucus and primary over the past several months except for his home state of Ohio. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has more delegates for the nomination than Kasich and he’s been out of the race for weeks. So why stay in as long as he did just to drop out when the race finally comes down to just two candidates? Let’s focus on a few key moments of the past several weeks that

Donald Trump is unfit to be president. He’s a braggart and a liar. And a serial adulterer. He’s behaved shamefully during the primary campaign. He wouldn’t recognize the Constitution if he tripped over it in the street. He doesn’t know even the Cliff Notes version of any policy issue. The idea that the party of Lincoln and Reagan, Coolidge and Eisenhower, Justice Harlan and Senator Taft has nominated Trump is appalling. And I’m going to vote for him anyway. I condemn no one for deciding otherwise. There are plausible arguments for not voting for him in November – to repudiate

Toby Neugebauer made headlines last year by donating $10 million to a pro-Ted Cruz super PAC. He´s taking $9 million of it back. The Texas energy investor and son of retiring Rep. Randy Neugebauer ran Keep the Promise II, one of several pro-Cruz super PACs under the Keep the Promise umbrella. But despite pleas from fellow Cruz backers throughout the campaign, he never followed through with big spending to help the Texas senator against Donald Trump, only spending $1 million of his $10 million investment. Although Cruz, who ended his presidential hopes Tuesday, was never short on campaign or super PAC cash, Neugebauer´s

Hepatitis C now kills more people in the United States than every other infectious disease combined, according to new government data. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that deaths associated with hepatitis C reached an all-time high of 19,659 in 2014, surpassing the total combined number of deaths from 60 other infectious diseases reported to CDC, including HIV, pneumococcal disease, and tuberculosis. "This is a very alarming trend," Dr. John W. Ward, director of CDC´s Division of Viral Hepatitis, told CBS News.

Donald Trump is now the all-but-inevitable Republican nominee and he’s started his first day by announcing he will renege on one of the core tenants of his campaign. He announced this morning on "Good Morning America" that he would accept “small contributions,” and he is now telling the Wall Street Journal that he won’t be entirely self-funding his campaign. “I’ll be putting up money, but won’t be completely self-funding, as I did during the primaries,” Trump told the WSJ.

RAMADI, Iraq -- This is what victory looks like in the Iraqi city of Ramadi: In the once thriving Haji Ziad Square, not a single structure still stands. Turning in every direction yields a picture of devastation. A building that housed a pool hall and ice cream shops - reduced to rubble. A row of money changers and motorcycle repair garages - obliterated, a giant bomb crater in its place. The square´s Haji Ziad Restaurant, beloved for years by Ramadi residents for its grilled meats - flattened. The restaurant was so popular its owner built a larger, fancier branch across the

The Republican Jewish Coalition congratulated Donald Trump on becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, but otherwise withheld praise for the candidate. “The Republican Jewish Coalition congratulates Donald Trump on being the presumptive Presidential nominee of the Republican Party,” said the statement from the group issued Wednesday, a day after it became clear that the real estate magnate had secured the party’s nomination with a crushing primary win in Indiana. Much of the rest of the statement focused on why the RJC continues to believe Hillary Clinton is “the worst possible choice for a commander in chief.” It did not otherwise mention Trump, unusual for
