About That Vote
The 15-to-0 Security Council vote imposing the toughest sanctions ever on North Korea is still reverberating today. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, whom I admire, was asked this morning on Fox & Friends what turned the tide at the U.N. Security Council to get China and Russia on board.
Haley answered, "It was really me saying, 'How many more ICBM [intercontinental ballistic missile] tests do we need to have before we do something?"
|15-To-0, Ready For 2020?||
The United Nations Security Council voted 15-to-0 this weekend in support of tough new sanctions against North Korea. The sanctions, drafted by the United States, come in the wake of repeated ballistic missile tests that have revealed shocking advances in the Stalinist regime's capabilities.

Mueller Goes Nuclear
News broke late yesterday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington, D.C. Subpoenas related to last year's meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer have reportedly been issued.
Grand jury investigations are supposed to be secret, so this news was obviously leaked by someone on Mueller's staff or in the Justice Department in order to damage the president.

Miller Gets "Acosted"
Trump Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller stepped up to the podium yesterday in the White House Briefing Room to answer questions about the RAISE Act, legislation reforming the nation's legal immigration system. He ended up getting accosted by CNN's left-wing "attack dog," Jim Acosta.
Their epic exchange is a perfect example of the division between left and right. It is also clear evidence that many so-called "journalists" are not unbiased reporters of facts, but active combatants on one side of America's culture war.
|America First, Restoring The Rule Of Law, Scandal Update||
President Trump today announced his support for the RAISE Act, legislation reforming the nation's legal immigration system. The RAISE Act is co-sponsored by Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA).
If enacted, the measure would reduce legal immigration by 50%. That may sound like a lot because it is a lot.
|Clapper Controversy, "A Grave Threat", Tisha B'Av||
A big story broke in the last 24 hours. This story it has far greater implications than anything else the left-wing pundits are talking about, but you won't hear about it from the mainstream media. It goes straight to the question of whether Barack Obama weaponized America's intelligence agencies against Congress and perhaps even the Supreme Court.

BREAKING NEWS: President Trump has fired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci.
After a tumultuous ten-day tenure, sources say President Trump was not happy with Scaramucci's vulgar rant that appeared late last week in The New Yorker. Rarely has a new hire made such a big mistake so quickly. And for a communications director, it was a whopper.
|Obamacare Survives, McCain's Legacy , Trump Honors First Responders||
The media, the entire left-wing political establishment and three renegade Republican senators -- McCain, Murkowski and Collins -- once again demonstrated why it is virtually impossible to get rid of entitlement programs.
The debate over repealing Obamacare has been dominated by talk about those potentially uninsured and those with pre-existing conditions. Forgotten in all the sturm und drang were the millions of Americans whose lives were turned upside down by Obama's quasi-socialized healthcare scheme. The entire law was built on lies.

A Revealing Reaction
The left's reaction to President Trump's announcement yesterday regarding transgendered individuals serving in the military was over-the-top in its vitriol and emotional appeals. Left-wing groups immediately played the bigotry card.
What was missing were fact-based explanations for how Obama's policy mainstreaming transgenderism and the associated costs, which are significant, help the military keep us safe and win wars.

Trump Stands With The Troops
Usually surprises in Washington are bad. Today was one of those rare occasions when the surprise was good. In a series of tweets this morning, President Trump rolled back yet another of Barack Obama's signature initiatives. Here's the president's statement:
