GREG COROMBOS — Sen. John McCain is getting most of the blame from the right and praise from the left for his vote to scuttle Senate legislation to repeal parts of Obamacare, but another GOP member is coming under fire for reneging on her vow to repeal the law and offering a weak explanation for her reversal....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — Is "unmasking" the Republican version of "collusion": dramatic huffing and puffing in lieu of something truly worth huffing and puffing about? I wonder. I've watched the story closely but I haven't written about it for a while because I can't get past a nagging question: Why must we speculate about whether the Obama administration abusively exploited its foreign-intelligence-collection powers in order to spy on Donald Trump's political campaign? After all, Trump is president now. If he was victimized, he's in a position to tell us all about it.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — In the time period of 2007-2008, two journalists – Trevor Loudon, a blogger from New Zealand, and America's Survival President Cliff Kincaid – tried to interest the public and the media in what they considered the story of their lifetimes. It was how a first-term largely unknown Senator from Illinois was a covert communist with backing from Russia who was poised to win the presidency of the United States. But the "fake news media" were not interested in the facts about then-Senator Obama, or the security risk he posed that would polarize and destabilize a nation -- and they covered up the story of Obama's communist mentor, suspected Soviet espionage agent Frank Marshall Davis. Here, for the first time in print, is how Loudon and Kincaid unraveled the story of America's first Marxist President. Kincaid says, "The smoking gun evidence of Barack Hussein Obama's deep personal relationship with suspected Soviet espionage agent and Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis is the real Russia-gate scandal."...

BRYAN FISCHER — The Founders frequently cited outside authorities in their public political writings to support, amplify, and confirm their positions. Of all these outside citations, 34% came from the Bible. The source cited next most frequently, Montesquieu, clocked in at a mere eight percent. There is simply no historical argument against the proposition that our new nation was founded on principles articulated in the word of God.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — A federal judge Tuesday shot down the latest attempt to derail President Trump's voter integrity commission, saying there wasn't enough evidence that Americans' rights are being violated by the request for voters' information.

WES VERNON — America needs to get its priorities straight. Picture this nightmare: Ex-President Barack Obama did (and out-of-office continues to) do his best to bring down America. Unlike other ex-presidents who had the courtesy to go home after their time in office was at an end and get out of their successor's way, Mr. Obama moved himself and his family into a mansion in a toney neighborhood in Washington, D.C. where he -- not satisfied with the damage he inflicted during the eight years the voters entrusted him the highest honor America can offer -- is now well-situated to undermine President Trump. He's like the rude house guest who never goes home.... (more)
