By what sense of logic are the liberals now suggesting that fighting a war on terror has only brought more terrorism? That the solution is, as Nancy Pelosi suggested on CBS, to overthrow the Taliban and say “back to normalcy.” How would this line of logic work in the Clinton years? Combatting smoking only leads to more smoking? Combatting Microsoft only leads to more monopolistic behavior? Combatting poverty only leads to more poverty? Okay, sometimes that formulation of unintended consequences does work out. But liberals have always focused on the pose, on the good intentions, and almost never on the results. So the President clearly has the good intentions and the resolve here on fighting terror. What are they left with? Fundraisers for the ACLU and Lynne Stewart?

Judge Brett Kavanaugh plans to provide the Senate Judiciary Committee his calendar from 1982, which supports his claim to have never attended a party like the one Christine Blasey Ford described, the New York Times reported Sunday. While it does not disprove Ford's allegations, the calendar indicates that ... Read More
The cynics — or, perhaps more precisely, the realists — believed that the Democrats were playing for time in the hopes of finding another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh. The cynics were right. The New Yorker stooped to publish a shoddy story alleging that Kavanaugh exposed himself to a woman while he ... Read More
President Trump was supportive of his nominee to the Supreme Court during a radio interview set to be broadcast on Monday morning, in which he characterized Brett Kavanaugh as a “fantastic, fantastic man” and called into question allegations of sexual assault.
