WASHINGTON TIMES — Protesters physically blocked newly-confirmed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a Washington, D.C., public school Friday morning.

WASHINGTON TIMES — Rep. Tom Price was confirmed early Friday, 52-47, by the Senate, after surviving yet another Democratic onslaught against a Trump nomination.

JOSEPH FARAH — If Donald Trump wants to reform election practices in the U.S. -- and, frankly, make America great again, he really ought to give serious thought to revoking the fraudulent dual citizenship of George Soros, the puppeteer of the American radical left.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — The epitaph of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is being written by cowardly corporations, spineless politicians, politically correct adults afraid to say anything, and of course the liberal media. The Washington Post and The New York Times have been on the front lines of the "progressive" movement that now seeks to abolish the differences between the sexes by using our children as guinea pigs in the latest version of their sick social experiment....

NEWSMAX — The Boy Scouts of America on Wednesday accepted its first transgender member, the Independent reported.

But that rule changed Jan. 30, when the BSA announced the change, saying they had done so based on states and communities changing how gender is defined.... (more)

RICH LOWRY — If the law means anything, the Trump administration will succeed in overturning the so-called court ruling against its travel ban. The nationwide stay of the ban issued by Judge James Robart, a Washington state-based federal district judge, is tissue-thin.

BOB UNRUH — The U.S. Senate confirmed Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., as U.S. attorney general by a vote of 52 to 47 on Wednesday after rancor in the body reached a low not seen in decades. Democrats, unable by sheer lack of numbers to force their will on majority Republicans, resorted to publicly impugning the integrity of Sessions during a hearing on his nomination by President Trump and watched as one member embarrassingly was officially reprimanded by the body and told to "take her seat."...

THE HILL — On the same day the Senate confirmed President Trump's secretary of Education pick by a historically narrow margin, a House Republican introduced legislation to abolish the entire department Betsy DeVos will lead.
