The Trouble With Turkey, Pence Steps Up, Some Debate Observations

The Trouble With Turkey
There are good people on both sides of the decision President Trump made to move a small number of U.S. troops out of harm's way after Turkish President Erdogan said he could no longer allow cross-border attacks to go unanswered.  I am skeptical of those who claim they would have left the troops in place.  

Barr vs. The Secular Left, Schiff's Grand Jury, Debate Night

Barr vs. The Secular Left
With everything that happened late last week, Attorney General William Barr's speech at Notre Dame did not get the attention it deserved.  It was, however, roundly condemned by the left.  Left-wing columnist Paul Krugman attacked Barr's speech as a "witch hunt/pogrom type speech."

Trump Stands Firm, Durham's Delay, Ready For A Rematch

Trump Stands Firm
Impeachment is serious business.  Whenever any elected official, from dog catcher to president, is faced with charges that could overturn an election, it is vital that voters know the process is fair.  But what is happening right now in the House of Representatives is anything but fair.
As we have noted before, House liberals are not following the established rules of impeachment.  The accused has the right to cross-examine witnesses, subpoena witnesses and present their own case. 

Trump's Syria Situation, China Censors The NBA, Day Of Atonement

Trump's Syria Situation
Late Sunday, President Trump announced that he is pulling back U.S. forces in Syria, keeping his promise to get us out of endless wars.  The president is getting a lot of pushback for his decision, and I understand the concerns.  I and the other commissioners on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom have privately shared those concerns with the president.   

A Recycled Smear Campaign, The Cover-up Continues, Better Late Than Never

A Recycled Smear Campaign
Yesterday marked the anniversary of the Senate vote confirming Brett Kavanaugh as a justice of the Supreme Court.  The left still hasn't gotten over that loss.  There were protests at the Supreme Court yesterday.

Shifty Schiff, Suspended Rights, Focus On Faith

"Shifty Schiff"
As we noted yesterday, the New York Times reported that the Deep State operative, which the media falsely call a "whistleblower," went to the Democrat staff on the House Intelligence Committee in advance and got their advice on filing his complaint.  This is a blatant violation of the whistleblower law.
