Pathetic Senate Republicans abandon principles by embracing Trump’s emergency declaration – Washington Examiner

Friday, March 15, 2019

Republicans who spent the Obama administration warning about the expansion of executive power on Thursday made fools of themselves by overwhelmingly backing President Trump’s emergency declaration in the name of building a border wall. In the process, they did long-term damage to the conservative cause. To be sure, the Senate voted 59-41 to disapprove of Trump’s declaration, and 12 Republicans took a principled stand.

Michael Cohen can’t wait for prison so he’s rejecting pardons he was never offered – Washington Examiner

Friday, March 08, 2019

That Michael Cohen is proudly declaring he doesn’t want a pardon from federal prison time doesn’t make him the hero he thinks it does.

Congressional Democrats take an ‘All Lives Matter’ approach to what used to be an anti-Semitism resolution – Washington Examiner

Friday, March 08, 2019

At the height of the Black Lives Matter movement, some conservative opponents adopted a slogan that on its face was fairly innocuous: All Lives Matter.

Activists insisted on the phrase “Black…
