Share

“When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said during a Sept. 6 hearing. (Photo: Alex Edelman/ZUMA Press/Newscom )

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of the great, Trump is a limited government president

Share

By Printus LeBlanc at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

After another moderate Republican House Member, U.S. Rep. Dave Trott (R-Michigan), decided not to run for reelection in 2018, a GOP consultant commented, “Trump is not a limited government conservative.” Looking at the evidence this could not be further from the truth. You may have a problem with the delivery method, but you cannot deny that President Donald Trump has instituted far more limited government reforms than the previous four Presidents. Don’t let perfect be the enemy of great.

Justices Should Toss Dems’ Phony Election Lawsuit

Share

By Betsy McCaughey at Townhall

If you can’t win, change the rules. Democrats and progressive activists are joining forces to urge the U.S. Supreme Court to interfere in how election districts are drawn in all 50 states. In Gill v. Whitford, they’re challenging how Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin drew the state’s election map.

The justices will hear the case on Oct. 3. If they decide to strike down Wisconsin’s map and dictate new rules for election map making, it could turn winners into losers and vice versa across the country. Republicans, who have been on a winning streak and now control both legislative houses and the governor’s mansions in 26 states — including Wisconsin — rightly oppose this judicial interference.
