The left is currently in control of the mainstream press, academia, Silicon Valley, Madison Avenue and the entertainment industry.These cultural institutions shape our society, but the political makeup of their populations do not accurately reflect this nation.To simplify, the country is more or less divided between conservatives and liberals, but the left is vastly over-represented in the cultural establishment.The mainstream press is overwhelmingly biased towards the Democratic party and hosti ...
Last night, just as the Russian-collusion hysteria was reaching a new fevered pitch on the back of reports that Donald Trump Jr. took a meeting with a Russian-born lawyer who promised juicy opposition research on Hillary Clinton, we took the opportunity to ask which was more disturbing: (i) that Jr. sought opposition research on his father's political opponent (a rather common, if utterly detestable, practice among politicians) or (ii) that various members of the Obama administration may have ve ...
U.S. President Donald Trump plans to nominate former Treasury official Randal Quarles to be the Federal Reserve's top banking regulator, the White House said on Monday.If confirmed by the Senate, Quarles would be the first vice chair of supervision at the Fed, a role created after the 2008 financial crisis but never filled during the Obama administration.Quarles is viewed as an industry-friendly figure who will likely listen to banks that have complained about the impact of regulations implement ...

President Trump said Thursday that he agreed Russia interfered in the U.S. presidential race and slammed former President Barack Obama for doing nothing about it, saying he didn’t “choke” but made a political decision.The president said Mr. Obama ignored Russian meddling in the election because he thought, as did most people, that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was going to win the election.“The reason is he thought Hillary was going to win. If he thought I was going to win, he would have do ...
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday raised the possibility that Republicans might not be able to repeal and replace Obamacare but said that action will be needed to stabilize healthcare markets."Unfortunately, this healthcare issue has been a very divisive and partisan issue," the Kentucky Republican said at a Rotary Club meeting in Paducah, The Western Kentucky Star reports."If my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to private ...
The protesters are falsely claiming the repeal will gut Medicaid, causing frail, indigent seniors to be evicted from nursing homes. It’s sheer demagoguery.But even these phony claims could have redeeming value if they get the public to take a closer look at nursing homes and see the filth, rampant infections, and neglect—conditions routinely tolerated by our indifferent public officials.Indifference is the real culprit, not inadequate Medicaid money.For example, New York state pays among the hig ...
