Obama awarded for 'courageous' kill of free market

- The Washington Times

Barack Obama, the guy who's no longer president, gave a campaign-type, rally-the-troops speech a few hours ago -- while accepting an award for "politically courageous leadership," no less -- aimed at making President Donald Trump's life more difficult. He didn't put it that way; it was implied.

Hillary's 'Onward Together' resistance group smells like scandal

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton, after a six-month break from public life, is emerging to head up a resistance group, "Onward Together," aimed entirely at taking out President Donald Trump's policies and bringing down the Republican agenda.

Senate better not stall on Obamacare

Washington policymakers have a time-tested method for rolling out new ideas: float a trial balloon. Spread rumors of a policy change or selectively leak it to the press, then see how it plays and proceed only if it looks doable. Trump has flipped that script. Big and startling ideas fly out of his mouth or from his Twitter feed. Then the rest of his administration scrambles to catch up _ and to figure out when his statements signal new presidential policies and when theyre offhand remarks that mean little.(AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)

Yale professor warns 'inevitable' -- Trump's taking over U.S.

- The Washington Times

Then along came the omnibus spending bill and now the Democrats are crowing once again.
