Any other leader visiting a church in the middle of a nationwide street war would have been praised for his solemnity, his search for healing. Not this president. His visit to St. John's, which had been engulfed in flames the night before, and St. John Paul II's National Shrine on Tuesday were just new ... (more)

    Every Vought Counts
    June 2, 2020

    Like a lot of the president's nominees, acting budget director Russell Vought doesn't have a whole lot of fond memories about his first confirmation hearing in the Senate. Back in 2018, when he was first picked to be OMB's second-in-command, he was grilled by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a debate so fiercely personal it became national news. Instead of big-picture economics, the Left turned ... (more)
