Tuesday, November 22, 2016 -- Trump's First 100 Days, Fake Hate

Trump's First 100 Days

Ironically for a 70-year-old populist, Donald Trump brilliantly harnessed the power of social media to get his message out during the presidential campaign. Eschewing big money ad buys and network sit-downs, Trump re-wrote the rules of campaigning by talking directly to the American people.

And he's showing every indication of continuing to do that sort of direct engagement during his presidency. The...

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 -- Left-wing Smear Machine, More Media Myths, 8 Days, Intolerant Left

Fighting The Left-wing Smear Machine

Yesterday, I wrote at length about the left's attempt to smear former Breitbart CEO and top Trump strategist Steve Bannon. It is nothing more than a pre-emptive strike against those in the new administration who will most aggressively fight the left's agenda.

With that in mind, Trump selected Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to be White House Chief of Staff.

That choice may...

Reasons To Be Optimistic

Nobody knows for certain how today's elections will play out. But here are some reasons you should be optimistic.
