GREG COROMBOS — President Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Iranian nuclear deal leaves Iranian leaders with the grim realization that the era of endless concessions from the West is over and that their own grip on power continues to slip.... (more)

THE DAILY BEAST — In his new book, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) defends his decision to give a controversial dossier about President Trump to former FBI chief James Comey.

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — Cute how this works: Kick off the week with some "the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted" bombast from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, by which he rationalizes that his defiance of subpoenas and slow-walking document production to Congress -- which is probing investigative irregularities related to the 2016 campaign -- is required by DOJ policy and "the rule of law." Then end the week with the Friday-night bad-news dump: the grudging removal of DOJ and FBI redactions from a House Intelligence Committee report on Russia's election meddling.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Oliver North says 100 million Americans own guns and that more of them need to join the National Rifle Association. Mr. North, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, talk show host and now the incoming president of the NRA, said his first goal will be to add 1 million people "as fast as we can" to the organization's membership, which is already at a record, approaching 6 million....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — President Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal is the greatest boost for American and global security in decades. If you think that is an exaggeration, then you evidently think the Obama administration's injection of well over a hundred billion dollars -- some of it in the form of cash bribes -- into the coffers of the world's leading state sponsor of anti-American terrorism was either trivial or, more delusionally, a master-stroke of statecraft....

THE EDITORS OF THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER — President Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear agreement negotiated by former President Barack Obama and reimpose sanctions was an important step toward a needed policy reset with one of America's most malicious enemies....

PHILIP KLEIN — In 2015, when a desperate President Obama decided to implement a deal with Iran in the face of fierce Republican opposition Congress (and even some Democratic defections), he was taking a gamble. The thinking was: either a pro-Iran deal Democrat wins the presidency in 2016 and keeps it in place, or the deal becomes so entrenched that even a Republican president wouldn't have the guts to pull out....

BOB UNRUH — Fans of President Trump long have pointed out that FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller has failed so far to produce any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign in 2016 and Russia, the apparent issue he was supposed to be investigating.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — The #MeToo movement has ensnared a number of Democrats despite their seemingly impeccable records on women's rights. But nothing quite compares to the freefall of former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Not only was Mr. Schneiderman a flag-flying feminist, but he had positioned himself at the forefront of the fight against sexual harassment, filing a lawsuit just three months ago against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein....

WASHINGTON TIMES — Conservative leader Oliver North will serve as the next president of the National Rifle Association, the gun rights group said Monday, tapping its highest-profile leader since actor Charlton Heston had the helm in the late 1990s and early 2000s.... (more)

ALAN KEYES — In an article published last week, I politely critiqued a headline of an email I received, which welcomed the possibility of "a paradigm shift in America," in which media featuring people "empowered with a Christian worldview" become "the dominant mainstream in television programming."...

WASHINGTON TIMES — A behind-the-scenes U.S. intelligence community fight over the merits of publicly scorning President Trump has burst into the open recently, with the CIA's former Moscow station chief accusing Obama-era spymaster John O. Brennan of crossing a red line through incessant Twitter and cable news excoriations of the current commander in chief.... (more)

NEW YORKER — Eric Schneiderman, New York's attorney general, has long been a liberal Democratic champion of women's rights, and recently he has become an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. As New York State's highest-ranking law-enforcement officer, Schneiderman, who is sixty-three, has used his authority to take legal action against the disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, and to demand greater compensation for the victims of Weinstein's alleged sexual crimes....

WASHINGTON TIMES — The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is pushing to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of Congress this week for not complying with a subpoena. Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican, sent a letter to the Justice Department requesting classified information for his committee's investigation into abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and counterintelligence inquiries, including the targeting of Americans such as former Trump campaign official Carter Page, but the letter was ignored....

May 7, 2018
WASHINGTON TIMES — Thousands of supporters of Iranian opposition groups rallied just blocks from the White House on Saturday for the downfall of Tehran's theocratic government and to invite President Trump to "rip up" the Iran nuclear deal. The rally came one week before Mr. Trump's May 12 deadline to decide whether to pull out of the Obama-era Iranian nuclear deal that saw the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China ease sanctions on Tehran in exchange for limits to its nuclear program. Mr. Trump has criticized the 2015 accord since it took effect.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Fired FBI Director James Comey has repeatedly denied during his book tour that he ever testified that FBI agents concluded that retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn didn't intentionally mislead them. That adamant assertion came into question Friday night when the Republican majority on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released portions of Mr. Comey's closed-door testimony. The section had been classified when the panel's Russia report was first released last month.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — 'How do you know Trump's not a suspect?" I've been hearing that question a lot these days. News reports indicate that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may try to coerce President Trump's testimony by issuing a grand-jury subpoena if the president does not agree to a "voluntary" interview. That has sparked a public debate over the question of whether Mueller, an inferior executive officer, has such authority to strong-arm the chief executive -- the official in whom the Constitution reposes all executive power, including the power that Mueller exercises only as long as the president permits it....

BOB UNRUH — Now is the time for President Trump's administration to fulfill a campaign promise of defunding the giant abortion business Planned Parenthood.
