President Trump’s Phase One trade deal may save the World Trade Organization from breakdown and takes international commerce to a better place in a world divided between democratic market and autocratic state-directed economies.

Who was the first president of the United States?

Impeachment, according to the Founding Fathers

When the impeachment process was first raised at the 1787 convention in Philadelphia, it led to a furious argument among the delegates. “One of the most hotly debated clauses in the Constitution deals with the removal of federal government officials,” writes Scott Bomboy, the editor in chief of the National Constitution Center.

Joe Biden, the guy who quite a few Democrats want to see as the next president of the United States, said he’d go after Immigration and Customs Enforcement for daring to deport illegals arrested for drunken driving. This is all that’s wrong with Democrats, wrapped in a big old Joe Biden bow.

Liberal media feel justified in treating Trump with disdain

The news media of the late 1700s and early 1800s consisted almost entirely of partisan political operations. Historian Ron Chernow writes that newspapers of that time period “were avowedly partisan and made no pretense of objectivity. It was a golden age for wielding words as rapier-sharp political weapons.”

Joe Rogan fails to see 'insanely consistent' failures of socialism

Celebrity Joe Rogan, who's capitalized on America's capitalistic system with successes as a comedian, actor and podcast host, said he'd probably vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders for president because the guy's been "insanely consistent" with his, well, socialism. Yes. Just as socialism has been "insanely consistent" as a failed system.

'Trump bashing' not always fair

I realize you are trying to be "fair and balanced" by printing former Judge Andrew P. Napolitano's opinion pieces, but I have to wonder why you would run some of what Mr. Napolitano writes ("Trump's trial is not a charade but deadly serious business based on constitutional norms," Web, Jan. 22). When you see one of his pieces, you know that you are going to get a Trump bashing.

Magical words vs. critical thought

We really shouldn't denigrate the left or reject their ideas out of hand. After all, they are effectively schooling modern capitalists to substitute the phrase "socially responsible growth" with "profit."

It's not that children don't have the right to have their opinions. It's just that children who speak on matters of which they're largely ignorant and completely unschooled shouldn't expect to order sovereign countries around and tell U.S. leaders what to do and dictate radical policies to the world.
