CLIFF KINCAID — The Heritage Foundation article "We Don't Have to Choose Between Putin and George Soros" is a very effective rebuttal to claims in the media that conservatives who oppose the influence of billionaire George Soros in foreign affairs are therefore siding with another billionaire, Russian ruler Vladimir Putin....

JOAN SWIRSKY — It's easy to deride the aberrant behavior of the leftists we've been unhappily witness to, both over the course of the presidential campaign and particularly since Donald J. Trump ascended to the presidency on November 8th, 2016. After all, they've never recovered from the Bush v Gore race of 2000!... (more)

SUSAN FERRECHIO — Republican lawmakers in both the House and Senate aren't ready to walk away from efforts to pass legislation repealing and replacing Obamacare, even if it means compromise among conservatives or working with Democrats.... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY — The Art of the Deal didn't work. The Trump White House tried simply commanding the intransigent conservatives on healthcare. The conservatives didn't follow orders. Trump tried heckling the resisters on Twitter, but that just alienated them. Trump repeatedly, though indirectly, threatened to work against the re-election of no votes.... (more)

NEWSMAX — President Donald Trump's declaration he is willing to work with Democrat lawmakers to move his agenda forward is "a rookie idea" that will not end well, former House majority leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, told Newsmax TV.... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH — May I speak frankly about what we just endured over recent weeks with regard to the House debate over Ryancare? House Speaker Paul Ryan is simply a non-smoking, better-looking, non-alcoholic version of John Boehner who had no desire to overturn Obamacare because he is an establishment Republican who detests conservatives more than Democrats and is a sellout to the insurance companies with little regard for the American people who would be hit with skyrocketing health-care insurance premiums had the bill he crafted been passed by Congress and signed by President Trump. That was a mouthful, but it needed to be said in one deep breath.... (more)

ART MOORE — Despite his support for the failed House health-care bill, President Trump knew when to walk away from a "bad deal," according to White House spokesman Sean Spicer. At the daily briefing Monday, Spicer was asked if the president could still work with the conservative House Freedom Caucus, which led the opposition to the American Health Care Act.... (more)

BOB UNRUH — A coalition of experts on civil rights is asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to clean up the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division by removing political activists from leadership, ridding the office of "ideological rot" and stopping its bureaucrats from abusing their authority....

WORLDNETDAILY — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday that jurisdictions must demonstrate they are not sanctuary cities to receive financial grants from the Justice Department. He said he's carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year, which identified three grant programs -- the COPS grants, Byrne grants and State Criminal Alien Assistance Program money -- that already require certification....

CLIFF KINCAID — BuzzFeed, described by Wikipedia as "a liberal American internet media company based in New York City," is in the "donor spotlight" at the national news museum in Washington, D.C., known as the Newseum.

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — It was a careful choice of words, Bernard Lewis being nothing if not careful. In 2004, the West audibly gasped when its preeminent scholar of Islam famously told the German newspaper Die Welt,"Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century," if not sooner.... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — It's been a long while since I perused Time magazine, either online or in print. Years ago, the weekly ceased being an interesting news magazine and evolved into a caricature of fashionable left-wing thought. It is no longer required reading. However, Time managed to work its way back into national consciousness this week with its colorful cover asking, "Is Truth Dead?" The irony of Time's editors raising that question probably never dawned on them.... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN — Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush's "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different.... (more)

THE RESURGENT — In an interview with CNN, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) scorched the House Leadership's proposed Obamacare replacement bill for perpetuating the status quo. Citing a comment from Speaker Paul Ryan, Wolf Blister prefaced his question to Senator Lee by saying conservatives will get roughly 85 percent of what they want from the American Health Care Act. Lee respectfully but strongly disagreed with Speaker Ryan's assertion that this bill provides 85 percent of what conservatives want in healthcare reform.... (more)
