Why Trump Embraces America First
Commentary, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article

Unsurprisingly, the media and his critics misunderstood the purpose of the foreign policy speech Donald Trump delivered yesterday. Of course, it was not aimed at convincing serious thinkers that he knew what he was talking about when it came to defining the purpose of American foreign policy in a Trump presidency. Given, as our Noah Rothman noted yesterday, the scale of the contradictions in the address, that was never a possibility. Far from a demonstration that Trump is studying up on the issues or being briefed on the nuances and the dangers facing the country, the speech was merely a

Remember that PR drive back in the early nineties to discourage teenagers from having babies? It worked apparently, along with a variety of other factors both known and unknown. Teen pregnancies have plummeted since then, especially in recent years, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Using the latest data available (2014), the Centers reported that teen pregnancies fell that year to the lowest rate on record.

Why I Blame TV for Trump

My friends in the TV news business are in a state of despair about Donald Trump, even as their bosses in the boardroom are giddy over what he’s doing for their once sagging ratings. “It feels like it’s over,” one old friend from my television days told me recently. Any hope of practicing real journalism on TV is really, finally finished. “Look, we’ve always done a lot of stupid sh*t to get ratings. But now it’s like we’ve just given up and literally handed over control hoping he’ll save us. It’s pathetic, and I feel like hell.” Said another friend covering



Moving on, a few parting thoughts -- for now

This is my last column on Investors.com. Investor’s Business Daily, the print newspaper, is ceasing daily publication now, becoming a weekly and moving in a direction different from current commentary content. It’s been an honor to write from this distinguished site for readers around the world. We’ve shared some good times at this place, some sad times and bad times, the stories of American heroes and a few scoundrels. Even a fair number of jokes. Starting as a childhood hobby with my father, I have regularly written little notes, stuffed them inside bottles, tossed them into the oceans and watched them bob out of sight.

You might say I was for Ann Coulter before I was against her. Or maybe that Coulter was for conservatism before she was against it, or before she was for Northeastern moderates Chris Christie, or Mitt Romney -- and certainly before she was for northeastern liberal Donald Trump. That was before she started her rants against one of the most conservative senators in the land in decades, the last being the straw that broke this camel´s back. Ann has changed. Ann has abandoned long-held principles to invest emotional hope in a man who has spent several decades funding opposition to everything

Conan: A car owned by Hillary Clinton is up for sale. Like Hillary, the car has been hit from all sides and lately has been starting to stall. Conan: A new poll just out finds 50% of Republicans say they could support Donald Trump. The other 50% are a group calling themselves “Women.” Fallon: Houston police recently found a tiger wandering the streets wearing a collar and leash. They’re trying to locate the owner. I hate to be the one to say this, but have they checked INSIDE the tiger?

The English writer E.M. Forster infamously said that if he had to betray either his country or a friend, he hoped he would betray the former. (Snip)Well, this is 2016, and I would be doing a Forster if it came down to choosing between the good old USA and a friend. No, I still prefer girls to boys, and still consider myself a patriot, but when the country continuously betrays its citizens, it’s time to call time-out and have a rethink. How can one justify allegiance to Uncle Sam when the President of the United States unequivocally states that he

Thugs advocating the mass lawless invasion of the United States attempted to shut down a rally of those who demand the law be enforced. That is the true nature of what happened last night in Costa Mesa, California, in Orange County. But a quick scan of media headlines about the event makes it clear that the media is doing its best to obscure the nature of the aggression, and portray the incident as the inevitable outcome of Trump’s vicious message of intolerance. All but overlooked is that a venue with an official capacity of 18,000 was packed, with many more

The Constitution could not be clearer: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” However, it seems that someone forgot to tell federal regulators about that. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, tried this week to change some of that this week, proposing to limit the Energy Department’s power to make rules without Congress’ consent. Each year, regulators impose thousands of rules on the American people—over 20,000 during the Obama administration’s tenure alone. The cost is staggering: According to an upcoming Heritage study, the cost of

I just flew back from Philadelphia and boy, are my arms tired of shooing away homeless people. The city of brotherly love has been overrun with broke bruthas asking for some love and it’s so depressing, you tend to forget the incredibly rich history of the place. While we waited for a walking tour to begin a vacuous black man stared at us nonstop as he stuffed potato chips in his face and rode a parked Citibike backwards (they’re called Indego bikes there). His jacket must have been prison-issued because it said “State Property” on the back. Moments later, as

With the nation on the verge of a presidential election between the first woman to lead a major party and an opponent accused of misogyny, Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump are digging in for a fight in which he is likely to attack her precisely because she is a woman. Mr. Trump, the Republican favorite, has already proved willing to attack Mrs. Clinton in ways that many women find sexist and that her supporters consider out of bounds. This week alone, he accused her of playing the “woman’s card” to get where she is, saying, “If Hillary Clinton were a man,

With rumors swirling that likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will tap radical Labor Secretary Tom Perez as her vice president pick, it’s important to become reacquainted with this leftist. Although much of Perez’s history is well-known to PJM readers due to his many fringe polices at the Justice Department Civil Rights Division, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) recently obtained his revealing eight-page resume. Nearly every single entry of his career history involves some form of racial activism. Read the resume here. The document shows that with Perez near the White House, race-based politics and social division in America will be sure

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Many people arriving at the Grand Wayne Convention Center for Thursday’s Ted Cruz Rally expected to see a lot of commotion when they got there. For someone just passing by, they might not have even known a presidential candidate was in Downtown Fort Wayne. Brenda Mossbarger took a break from work to snap a few photos of the ‘hoopla’ outside the Grand Wayne Center. She said she didn’t see much going on. “I guess I was just expecting to see some spillover, maybe people waiting to get in,” she said. “It seems to be pretty

White House officials on Thursday announced a new rule that would extend government-funded health care to most people living in halfway houses, providing coverage to nearly 100,000 additional people. They also clarified for states that people on probation, parole or in home confinement were not considered inmates of a public institution and could also receive the government-funded coverage. Medicaid, the program they will be covered under, extends to the poorest Americans under Obamacare and comes at little or no cost to patients. "What this guidance does is remind states of some of the tools they have available to them," said

Washington--Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Thursday downplayed the idea of an alliance between himself and Ohio Gov. John Kasich to prevent Republican front-runner Donald Trump from locking up the nomination. "I recognize that the media is all eager to talk about an alliance. There is no alliance. Kasich and I made a determination where to focus our energies. Where to focus our assets, where to focus our resources," he said at a news conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Cruz and Kasich campaigns issued statements Sunday saying they will divide their efforts in upcoming contests with Cruz focusing on Indiana and Kasich

A police car had its windows smashed as Mr Trump spoke inside a hall in the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. Some 20 arrests were made. Mr Trump has vowed to deport millions of illegal immigrants if he is elected US president in November. He faces strong opposition in parts of California, particularly among Latinos. California, the biggest prize for Republican candidates in the nomination race, holds its primaries on 7 June. On Tuesday, Mr Trump called himself the Republican "presumptive nominee" after five new primary wins in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Indianapolis, Indiana--Ted Cruz, having been trounced by Donald Trump in six consecutive states, has gone from banking on an Indiana win to facing a campaign collapse without one. The surreal elevation of Carly Fiorina to his presidential ticket on Wednesday was the latest sign of Cruz´s increasingly narrow path to the Republican nomination, a campaign that is depending on a series of desperate attempts to widen it ever so slightly. (Snip)Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his native northeast.

On any ranked list of nasty diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks and fleas in the Western world, Borrelia burgdorferi, would have to lie near the top. These bacteria cause Lyme disease, which was first recognised in the US in the early 1970s among patients in Lyme, Connecticut. (Snip) Lyme disease is one of the fastest growing diseases in the Western world – the threat it poses has become increasingly apparent in recent years. Estimates suggest that more than 300,000 people are diagnosed in Europe. However, the true number of people affected is probably underestimated due to under-reporting and the limitations

Legacy: The same day the 0.5% GDP growth came out, President Obama is quoted in the New York Times saying the country has done “better” than “any large economy on Earth in modern history.” Delusional doesn’t begin to cut it. The only real problem with the economy, as far as Obama is concerned, is that he hasn’t been selling his successful policies aggressively enough. “We were moving so fast early on that we couldn’t take victory laps. We couldn’t explain everything we were doing. I mean, one day we’re saving the banks; the next day we’re saving the auto industry; the next

It’s unfortunate, in a nation of 320 million people, that voters must choose the next American president from the disappointing field of candidates now competing in the Democratic and Republican primaries. We can think of a number of possible candidates — former Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels comes to mind — who might have provided Americans with sounder choices as the nation’s next commander in chief. But that’s not the reality voters in Indiana will face as they go to the polls on Tuesday. The biggest stakes on Tuesday are on the Republican side, where front-runner Donald Trump could move close

Seven years into the Age of Obama, we’ve become used to, and in fact now expect, the application of federal law, or lack thereof, to depend on politics. Particularly when it comes to the president’s debauched Department of Justice. Can there be any doubt about this? It began almost before the president even took office, with the decision to quash the prosecution of the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia on voter intimidation charges arising from the 2008 election, in a case that was about as open-and-shut as one could get and in fact had been won by the Bush Justice Department.

We get it. John Boehner doesn’t like Ted Cruz. In a witless cheap shot, Boehner called him “Lucifer in the flesh” at an event at Stanford University. Boehner’s attitude is widespread among Republican insiders who are foolishly allowing personal ill will to cloud their reasoned judgment about who, among the candidates left in the GOP race, is the best representative of conservative principles and policies, and about who would be the best candidate in the upcoming general election. On both counts, Cruz is the obvious choice. Ted Cruz is a constitutional conservative dedicated to reducing the outsized federal government to

Volkswagen is pushing back against the UAW campaign to unionize a subset of workers in right-to-work Tennessee in a case that is bound for federal court. The company says it will appeal a National Labor Relations Board ruling that would allow skilled maintenance workers to organize. The NLRB, which oversees all union elections, approved the December election results in April. Volkswagen spokesman Scott Wilson said the union should not be able to cherry pick and divide workers within the plant in order to organize the factory piecemeal. The company plans to appeal the NLRB decision in federal court. “We disagree with the decision
