Pollak: Secret Republican Vote to Restore Earmarks Is a Betrayal of the Voters

The House Republican Conference vote on Wednesday to restore earmarks was a betrayal of the voters, and undermined one of the remaining legacies of the Tea Party. The vote was close, 102-84, but that is no consolation, especially as it was by secret ballot, preventing voters from holding their representatives accountable. If Republicans do not…

Pollak: Mainstream Media, Big Tech Coverup Collapses with Hunter Biden Investigation

The revelation Wednesday that Hunter Biden is under investigation for tax violations relating to his foreign business affairs confirms that the media/Big Tech censorship of stories during the election about his laptop and emails was entirely without merit. When the New York Post reported on October 14 that Hunter Biden had introduced an official from the…

Pollak: Democrats Opposed Every Policy Boosting the Economy.

Former President Barack Obama tried to claim credit on Friday for President Donald Trump’s economic success. This would be the same former president who mocked Trump’s promises on jobs in 2016. “What magic wand do you have?” he taunted. The reality is that Democrats, including Obama, have opposed every policy that is responsible for the […]

Pollak: Trump’s Summit with Putin Was a Success the Media Can’t Admit.

President Donald Trump scored a diplomatic win on Monday at his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. The media, the Democrats, and the Never Trump contingent declared immediately that Trump had failed. But they were bitterly prejudiced against the meeting from the start, to the point where many insisted that Trump cancel […]

Pollak: In Leaving Iran Deal, Trump Ends Obama’s Legacy of Appeasement.

Devastating Blow to Obama Legacy. President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the U.S. is leaving the Iran deal marks the end of what his predecessor, Barack Obama, considered his main foreign policy legacy. Trump will earn credit from his supporters for keeping his promise. But in truth, the Iran deal was undone by its own […]

Pollak: School Walkout for Gun Control Likely Violated Constitution.

The national school walkout for gun control that took place at many public schools across the country Wednesday likely violated the Constitution. That is because the government — in this case, public schools — made a special accommodation for a political viewpoint that it would not make for the opposing view, or for any other […]

POLLAK: On Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Democrats Use Racism with Impunity.

Last week, an American political leader used race explicitly in an effort to win a policy debate over immigration. It was not President Donald Trump, whose alleged reference to “shithole countries” was, at worst, racist by inference. (He allegedly compared immigrants from Norway and Africa to argue for a merit-based immigration system, which was spun by critics as an […]

POLLAK: Why Republicans Should Not Cave to Democrat Demands on DACA.

President Donald Trump outlined the basic structure of a DACA deal on Sunday. The so-called “Dreamers” — illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as minors — would be able to stay legally in the country, but only if a border wall is built. (DACA refers to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, an Obama-era program […]

POLLAK: Trump’s DACA Decision is the Right Move, the Right Way

President Donald Trump has reportedly decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — effective six months from Tuesday, when he will formally announce his decision. Trump’s decision has, predictably, outraged amnesty activists, and frightened the establishment wing of the Republican Party. But it has also raised alarms among conservatives, who fear […]
