FRANK MAGUIRE Back in 2010, I became associated with RenewAmerica.com. One major reason was that I came to know the wonderful Christian woman and exquisite writer, Bonnie Alba. Bonnie and I shared thoughts and ideas for a number of years, and right up until her demise, Bonnie and my wife Helen were Facebook friends.... (more)

NEIL BRIAN GOLDBERG Has there ever, ever been such an all-out assault by every element of the press, the media, the teachers (and thus the students and the schools), the entertainment industry, the judiciary, the betrayers in his own party, and the world press on any president in history?...

WASHINGTON TIMES President Trump forced Michael Flynn to resign as national security adviser because of broken trust, not broken laws, the White House said Tuesday, trying to clean up the mess after the first major shake-up of the administration. The explanations, however, failed to quell calls from both sides of the aisle to expand the Senate probe into Russian email hacks during the presidential campaign to Mr. Flynn's contacts with Russian officials, including possibly calling him in to testify....

WASHINGTON TIMES The White House's national security adviser resigned Monday night and President Trump tapped retired Lt. Gen. Joseph Keith Kellogg Jr. to serve as acting adviser in his place, in the first major shakeup of the still-young administration.... (more)

DAVID FRENCH If Donald Trump doesn't understand now, he will eventually. Integrity and truth ultimately do matter, and if he wants to be a successful president, he's going to have to appoint people to high office who won't violate the public's trust.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Even if President Trump can't convince the courts to approve his extreme vetting executive order, he may have another tool at his disposal that would allow him to strip visas from some of the seven countries he's trying to target, crackdown supporters say.... (more)

BOB UNRUH Abortion-industry giant Planned Parenthood "treated women like cattle," according to a former insider. The comment came on Tuesday as part of the release of more videos from the pro-life group Live Action, whose president, Lila Rose, is raising various issues about what she calls the "Abortion Corporation" just as Congress is considering transferring some $500 million in taxpayer funds from the abortionists at Planned Parenthood to other community health centers that provide a wide range of health services....

WASHINGTON TIMES A bill that would require the fathers of unborn children to approve abortions is under consideration in Oklahoma, in a move seen by pro-life advocates as an attempt to bring men back into the parenting fold but by pro-choice activists as an unconstitutional provision that takes autonomy away from women. Oklahoma state Rep. Justin Humphrey... (more)

CAL THOMAS My wife of 51 years passed away last Saturday after a long battle against multiple health issues. We met in the musical theater. She was in it. I wanted to be on stage. I have a passable singing voice. Her contralto voice was powerful and perfectly pitched. She could hit the back seats without amplification. She traveled with some of Broadway's biggest stars on the summer stock circuit, but ultimately chose another life -- a life with me and our four children.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES President Trump took a victory lap with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Tuesday, saying her confirmation after "a very unfair trial" in the Senate will benefit students nationwide by expanding school choice.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID She endorsed him, and he paid respects at her funeral, but it appears that President Donald Trump hasn't read Phyllis Schlafly's book The Supremacists: The Tyranny of Judges and How to Stop It. Rather than simply Tweet his disgust with rulings against his immigration executive order, Trump and his advisers should read the book, especially Schlafly's Chapter 15. It offers a series of measures, including impeachment, to stop tyrannical judges.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The State Department has more than doubled the rate of refugees from Iraq, Syria and other suspect countries in the week since a federal judge's reprieve, in what analysts said appears to be a push to admit as many people as possible before another court puts the program back on ice....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY Do you think Islam needs reform?" Wouldn't it be interesting, wouldn't it get us to the crux of the immigration debate, if our best news anchors -- I'm looking at you, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier -- would put that question to every major politician in Washington?... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is leading the charge against President Trump's order to temporarily halt immigrants from seven Middle Eastern countries identified by the Obama administration as hotbeds of terrorism. So far, they have managed to find sympathetic judges in friendly climes such as the Ninth Circuit.... (more)

WESLEY PRUDEN Neil Gorsuch doesn't know much about politics and how the political class in Washington works, and that's a good thing. Politics and the law make unnatural bedfellows, and the progeny of such beds is often unnatural. But a well-meaning innocent adventuring into the high weeds that abound in Washington can get into trouble without meaning to, and when the innocent emerges from the weeds he can expect a face full of thistles and scratches....

WASHINGTON EXAMINER Donald Trump co-opted the Tea Party platform on the campaign trail and has so far managed to merge the Tea Party movement with "Trumpism." Lawmakers swept into office during the Tea Party wave recognize that President Trump took the mantle, but Tea Party and like-minded groups warn they stand ready to snatch it back if he strays from the core principles....

CLIFF KINCAID She's been labeled the "Daughter-in-Chief" by the tabloids and, in this case, it appears to be the truth. According to several news accounts that have not been denied or debunked, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, persuaded President Donald Trump to retain an executive order from the Obama administration that prohibits companies from doing business with the federal government unless they hire and promote open homosexuals and transgendered people....

BOB UNRUH The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals carried out a "coup d'etat" when it ignored both federal law and U.S. Supreme Court precedent to maintain a suspension of President Trump's order to bar entry to travelers from seven terror-supporting nations. John Eastman, a commentator for the Hill, said the 9th Circuit's ruling upholding federal Judge James Robart's nationwide temporary restraining order... (more)

NEWSMAX Democrats are "sabotaging" America's national security and the party is about to topple over a cliff, New York Times bestselling author David Horowitz told Newsmax TV. During an appearance on "Newsmax Prime," Horowitz told host J.D. Hayworth that left-leaning America is doing more harm than good when it comes to keeping people safe.... (more)

THE EDITORS OF NATIONAL REVIEW The Ninth Circuit's decision against President Trump's immigration order is worse than wrong. It is dangerous. To review, Trump issued an executive order blocking entry by refugees and aliens from seven Muslim-majority countries. The travel restriction is to be short-lived: a period of months while better vetting procedures are developed.... (more)
