Heritage: Democrat Push for “Basic Income” is Doomed to Fail

Two Democrat Senators, with their eyes on the 2020 presidential race, have thrown their support behind an initiative for “basic income” – an idea that would provide free money to low-income families with no strings attached.

Ocasio-Cortez: “Puzzling” That Anyone Would Ask How I’ll Pay for Agenda

The really hilarious thing about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her complete inability to explain, much less justify, her socialist agenda, is that she’s rarely faced any real oppositional journalism. Quite the contrary, she is the darling of the left-wing media, and she has enjoyed their support from the moment she pulled off her upset victory in New York. But time and ...

At this point, there’s just no excuse for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to sound as ignorant and uninformed as she does every time she appears on television.

Is This The Most Conservative Administration of All Time?

Even those who wholeheartedly supported Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign were not fooled about what it was that they were getting.

Millions of Americans See Big Benefit From GOP Tax “Crumbs”

Democrats – including, most infamously, Nancy Pelosi – have downplayed the effect the Republican/Trump tax cuts will have on workers and the American middle class, insisting that the whole thing amounts to one big giveaway to the rich and powerful. The rest of the country, according to Pelosi, gets nothing but the “crumbs” leftover. But according to a new analysis ...

Trump Does It Again: EU Submits to Deal in Order to Avoid Steel Tariffs

His critics have been blasting him as an out-of-control lunatic who is going to destroy the U.S. economy and throw the world into a major financial crisis, but President Donald Trump was proven right (once again) on Wednesday when he reached a deal with European Union Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker that will put the U.S. on better trade footing than ...

Gunmakers Worried That Banks Could Destroy Firearms Industry

When we talk about threats to the Second Amendment, we usually limit the discussion to Democrat politicians, liberal activist judges, and advocacy groups like Everytown for Gun Safety. But gun manufacturers and distributors are increasingly concerned that the real threat to their industry will come not from Washington but from corporate America; specifically, from financial institutions who will no longer ...

TAXATION: Supreme Court Changes the Face of Online Commerce

In a landmark ruling on Thursday, the Supreme Court decided 5-4 that states now have the ability to collect sales tax on online purchases originating locally…even if the businesses themselves do not have a physical location in the state.
