Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is an admirer of Critical Race Theory, the “1619 Project,” and Black Lives Matter, all of which hold beliefs about the United States and its laws that make it impossible for her to serve in good faith on the Supreme Court.

Imagine this: a rich, white, middle-aged Republican man, who has spent most of his adult life in political office, faces a sudden challenge from a charismatic black Democratic opponent, who wants to be the first African American in the role.

Pollak: The Democratic Party Is the Dividing Line in Israeli Politics

The reason Benjamin Netanyahu is no longer the prime minister of Israel today has much to do with the Democratic Party, whose recent drift toward anti-Israel positions has become a major and imminent threat to the security of the Jewish state.

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 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.

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.

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

Devastating Blow to Obama Legacy.

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.

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.
