POLITICAL COMMENTARY

  • How Trump Can Lower Drug Prices By Stephen Moore

    One of Donald Trump's more memorable promises on the campaign trail was to lower the cost of prescription drugs. Polls show this issue remains popular with Americans, especially lower-income families, who are worried about high drug prices.

  • Trump Calls Off Cold War II By Patrick J. Buchanan

    Beginning his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, President Trump declared that U.S. relations with Russia have "never been worse."

    He then added pointedly, that just changed "about four hours ago."

  • Is a Coming NATO Crisis Inevitable? By Patrick J. Buchanan

    Of President Donald Trump's explosion at Angela Merkel's Germany during the NATO summit, it needs to be said: It is long past time we raised our voices.

    America pays more for NATO, an alliance created 69 years ago to defend Europe, than do the Europeans. And as Europe free-rides off our defense effort, the EU runs trade surpluses at our expense that exceed $100 billion a year.

  • The Kavanaugh Confirmation Kabuki By Michael Barone

    Theater, much like Japan's Kabuki -- that's all the Supreme Court confirmation process is. Donald Trump's presentations of his two nominees, Judge Neil Gorsuch last year and Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Monday, were uncharacteristically graceful -- a worthy theatrical innovation, in the view of even some Trump critics.

  • Registering by Party: Where the Democrats and Republicans Are Ahead By Rhodes Cook

    This is not the best of times for the Democratic Party. No White House; no Senate; no House of Representatives; and a clear minority of governorships and state legislatures in their possession. Yet the Democrats approach this fall’s midterm elections with an advantage in one key aspect of the political process — their strength in states where voters register by party.

  • Dads Needed By John Stossel

    Warren Farrell was once considered a feminist leader. He hung around with Gloria Steinem and wrote about why men and women should break out of rigid old gender roles.    

  • Ghoulies: Parade of the Aborticrats By Michelle Malkin

    I thought we had seen it all from radical feminists -- and what we've seen is way, way more than anyone other than a gynecologist needs to see.

  • Trump's Zero-Tariff Solution By Stephen Moore

    President Donald Trump's aluminum and steel tariff policies have now triggered retaliatory tariffs from other nations, including Canada, the EU and China.

  • Is a Trump Court in the Making? By Patrick J. Buchanan

    If Mitch McConnell's Senate can confirm his new nominee for the Supreme Court, President Donald Trump may have completed the capture of all three branches of the U.S. government for the Republican Party.

  • Will the Odd Couple -- AMLO and Trump -- Narrow the U.S.-Mexico Gap? By Michael Barone

    Will NAFTA survive? Last week, Mexico elected as president longtime NAFTA critic Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (always called "AMLO") by a wide margin. He promptly had a cordial telephone conversation with longtime NAFTA critic President Donald Trump, who remains U.S. president for the next 30 months and, if re-elected, for all of AMLO's six-year term.
