Roger Ailes Remembered for Giving Conservatives a Voice, and a Fair Hearing, at Fox News

Roger Ailes built Fox News Channel by tapping into a growing sense among ordinary Americans that the dominant news media didn’t understand or care about them, journalists said Thursday at word that the cable TV giant had died. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month While some of Ailes’ critics focused on great personal failings that led to his downfall, those who witnessed his achievements over the years from near or far, or who benefited from his faith in them, were more generous. “Everything you see in cable news today is Roger Ailes’ making, regardless of network,” Joe Concha, media critic for The Hill, said in an email to The Daily Signal.

Trump’s Tax Proposal is a Strong Starting Point for Reform

President Donald Trump’s tax plan announced on Wednesday shows that he is serious about his campaign promise to cut America’s taxes. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month For too long, the American economy has been held back by an outdated tax system. Trump’s promise to lower tax rates and update the tax code will benefit all Americans. Chief among the proposed reforms is lowering tax rates for businesses and individuals. Lowering the business income tax rate to 15 percent has rightly received the most attention. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Currently, Americans pay a federal corporate income tax rate of 35 percent—one of the highest in the world. Because businesses are made up of people, it is those Americans who work for and invest in American companies who actually pay the tax. In fact, … Read entire article »

The History of ‘Extreme Vetting’ of Immigrants

The United States began as a nation of immigrants, and it continues to be so today. The ability to absorb people from around the globe is a hallmark of American exceptionalism. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month America has succeeded mostly through what The Heritage Foundation’s Mike Gonzalez has called “patriotic assimilation,” in which immigrants have not just been taught how to adapt to the economy of the U.S., but also the customs and beliefs of larger American culture. It is this fading notion of assimilation that has been a great strength for America since its founding. But, the extraordinarily welcoming nature of this country can be turned against it; assimilation simply won’t work on those who are expressly opposed to the idea.

All Sitting Supreme Court Justices Have Been Involved With Federalist Society, Labeled a ‘Front’ Group by Democrats

Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court choice, came under fire from Democrats Monday because of his involvement with the Federalist Society, a conservative legal organization. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month “I don’t know what Donald Trump’s judicial philosophy [is] as president, but we sure do know the judicial philosophy of the Federalist Society, which was given the responsibility of coming up with a list of nominees to fill the [Antonin] Scalia vacancy on the Supreme Court,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said Monday before Gorsuch’s Senate Judiciary Committee vote. A new report, however, released Monday by the conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared, or AR2, shows that all current U.S Supreme Court justices, appointed by both Democrats and Republicans, and not just Gorsuch, have been involved with the Federalist Society. … Read entire article »

We Hear You: ‘Elitist Media Believe Themselves Superior’

Editor’s note: The pretensions of the “mainstream media” remain on the minds of our audience. Today’s collection of mail kicks off with those concerns. Got an urge to write us? See how below.—Ken McIntyre Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Dear Daily Signal: The Washington Post’s attack on The Daily Signal’s participation in the White House press pool is an egregious confrontation that highlights the difference between elite and citizen journalism (“The Daily Signal Won’t Be Bullied by the Establishment Media“). The reason the elitist press wish to deny access to a non-elitist press: They fear they will lose their influence and power. This power struggle between the two is nothing new or unusual, and we are hearing about it now because of President Trump’s battle with elite news sources, more often … Read entire article »

Long Before Neil Gorsuch, Judges Had to Be Liberal Enough for Chuck Schumer

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer arguably telegraphed his opposition to Neil Gorsuch as the next Supreme Court justice almost 16 years ago when, as a freshman Democrat from New York, he broke what he called a taboo to say the Senate publicly should make ideology a factor in confirming judges. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month “Schumer deserves credit or blame—depending on your perspective—for escalating the judicial confirmation wars,” @EdWhelanEPPC says. Today, Schumer is the Senate’s top Democrat and is leading the charge against President Donald Trump’s first high court nomination. Schumer not only is the Senate minority leader but a senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee that will begin hearings Monday on Gorsuch and decide whether to send his nomination to the Senate floor for a confirmation vote.

Why Trump’s Visit to Andrew Jackson’s Grave Matters

On Wednesday, Andrew Jackson’s 250th birthday, President Donald Trump is scheduled to lay a wreath on the seventh president’s grave. He will be the first president since Ronald Reagan to visit Jackson’s home in Nashville, Tennessee. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month While a seemingly small gesture to a president who had been quickly fading in the minds of Americans, Trump’s visit is an important piece of symbolism for a man who ran under the slogan “Make America Great Again.” Far too often in modern America, we are quick to point out the faults of our history, mock the “hypocrisy” of our forefathers, and abandon old heroes. Jackson has become a prime target of attack, a faded legend into whom we pour all of our nation’s early sins. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); >>>Thomas … Read entire article »

Colorado ‘Selfie’ Bill Opens the Door to Vote-Buying and Election Fraud

The secret ballot is a fundamental tenet of American democracy. It was implemented in the United States in the late 1800s to counter widespread instances of bribery and intimidation of voters. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Both houses of the Colorado Legislature recently passed a bill that is now sitting on Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk that would allow voters to take “selfies” of their marked ballots. This is a very bad idea that would void the secrecy of our ballots and represents a dangerous and unjustified step backward.

It Is About Time That We Had A President That Was Willing To Go To War With The Mainstream Media

Thursday afternoon’s press conference was perhaps the most memorable moment of Donald Trump’s presidency so far.  Trump’s blistering attack on the media was quite a spectacle, but the truth is that it was desperately needed.  For decades, the mainstream media has dominated political discourse in this country no matter who has been in control of the White House or Congress.  They have become masters of guiding and shaping public opinion, and in recent years they … Read entire article »

The ruthless political assassination of Michael Flynn was just one battle of a major civil war that has erupted for control of the U.S. government.

Sabotage: Obama Is Commanding An Army Of 30,000 Anti-Trump Activists From His Home 2 Miles From The White House

Throughout American history, most ex-presidents have chosen to move away from Washington D.C. once their terms have ended, and the vast majority of them have tried very hard not to interfere with their successors. Unfortunately, Barack Obama has opted for the exact opposite approach. His new home is less than two miles from the White House, and from this “command center” he will be directing the activities of an army of more than 30,000 anti-Trump … Read entire article »

Why Donald Trump Needs The Next Recession To Start As Quickly As Possible

Why Donald Trump Needs The Next Recession To Start As Quickly As Possible

A new recession is coming, and Donald Trump needs it to begin sooner rather than later.  As I explained last week, most American voters tend to care about their pocketbooks more than anything else.  If the next recession were to officially start during the first quarter of 2017, it would be very easy for Trump to blame it on Obama, and then he could portray himself as the one that pulled the U.S. economy out … Read entire article »

The United States Is On The Precipice Of Widespread Civil Unrest

It doesn’t take much of a trigger to push extremely large crowds of very angry protesters into committing acts of rioting and violence.  And rioting and violence can ultimately lead to widespread civil unrest and calls for “revolution”.  The election of Donald Trump was perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and we have already seen that a single move by Trump can literally cause protests to erupt … Read entire article »
