If you’re picking a Supreme Court Justice based solely on their record and comments, President Trump could not have made a better choice to replace Justice Antonin Scalia. Judge Neil Gorsuch is a Constitutional Originalist and “on paper” is the most fitting choice to replace Scalia.

Even some liberals believe that Judge Gorsuch is a perfect candidate for the job and that he should be easily whisked through the confirmation process.

I have no doubt that if confirmed, Judge Gorsuch would help to restore confidence in the rule of law. His years on the bench reveal a commitment to judicial independence — a record that should give the American people confidence that he will not compromise principle to favor the president who appointed him. 

The National Review debunks five myths that have cropped up in the debate over President Trump’s Executive Order on Refugees.

Liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz explains why former acting Attorney General Sally Yates was wrong for disobeying President Trump and Trump was right to fire her.

Keep an eye on new Secretary of Defense James Mattis as he travels overseas for the first time on the job. He will signal where President Trump plans on driving American foreign policy in Asia.

Republicans have pushed Trump nominees Steve Mnuchin and Rep. Tom Price through their committee hearings, even as Democrats continued their obnoxious boycott of the hearings. The two men will now advance to a vote before the Senate where they will likely be confirmed.

The “no-borders” liberals are completely clueless.

Former President Obama should stop his whining and bellyaching about Donald Trump and start playing golf again.

When did Toyota decide to become more American than General Motors?

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.
