Just a few days after the announcement of a shakeup to the Trump campaign team, former campaign chief Paul Manafort has now resigned. Manfort’s resignation comes less than a week after revelations of his close ties with Moscow and in the midst of a campaign that has seen Russia become a central presidential race theme.

An Obama administration flunky is in big trouble after he allegedly beat up an autistic Native American man who was wearing a Washington Redskins jersey, that the bureaucrat found “offensive.”

Why did Venezuela collapse so spectacularly? One reason could be the fact that the government was taking economic advice from a Marxist professor.

Why is America continuing to ignore the devastation taking place on the Gulf Coast? Democrat negligence is playing a role in the coverage, but hypocrisy is the biggest reason that the media coverage for the current catastrophe is so different from the coverage after Hurricane Katrina. The private market proves, once again, to be the best answer to a complex problem.

Liberals might like to ignore the facts on Obamacare, but the truth is that the law was designed to be as crony friendly as possible.

So it’s worth noting that when liberals celebrate Obamacare enrollment numbers or other successes, these fabricated “marketplaces” feature subsidized products sold to consumers who are compelled to participate or pay fines. Yet even then, they hemorrhage companies and dollars and breed the kind of cronyism that Americans claim to hate.

The boycott Target campaign has worked far better than conservatives could have hoped. The company lost millions (some estimates are far higher) of dollars in revenue, and now the retail giant has finally acquiesced (kind of) to their customers.

Liberal fears about the havoc #Brexit might have caused weren’t just “overblown” — they were completely WRONG.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
