They are at it again! Liberal billionaires George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg and Nicholas Pritzker are attempting to force their left leaning ideology on Ohioans.

As a candidate for president, Donald Trump made protecting and strengthening American manufacturing a cornerstone of his campaign. Under his watch, the United States added 138,000 manufacturing jobs last year and that number continues to rise. There is something else he can do now to protect American manufacturing and foster job growth: keep the mobile air conditioning credits that are part of the EPA’s auto emission standards program.

It was worthy of a Saturday Night Live skit, but Lorne Michaels probably would’ve turned it down. SNL has leaned heavily left since Donald Trump’s election, and the show’s creator and executive producer would’ve understood the humor in how clueless Senate Democrats came across during Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing – but he probably wouldn’t bring himself to showcase how awful they really looked.

For the first time in years, American workers will be celebrating Labor Day knowing that we finally have the economic wind in our sails. Despite what liberal pundits on TV might try and spin you, President Trump’s economic policies have paved the way for lower unemployment, a return of quality American jobs from overseas, and a confident American consumer with strong purchasing power.

It is difficult to imagine the heartache of having a loved one taken from you only to then see the person or persons responsible escape justice. The lack of closure that results from an unsolved crime is surely made all the worse by the unique injustice of a perpetrator being identified and yet enjoying absolute impunity. Imagine being witness to such a thing, and then imagine how much worse it would be if your loved one’s killer was known to everyone but never faced a day in court, and instead went on to live high on the hog, ascending to greater levels of wealth and power in the society you both inhabit. Even more disturbing is to see that they take pride in the crimes they have committed, and that they continue their ruthlessness. Now imagine that experience stretching over 30 years, multiply it times 30,000, and you may begin to have a sense of what the families of murdered Iranian political activists are dealing with.

I recently had the pleasure to sit on a panel with a number of incredible inventors and leaders on innovation issues in an experience that was both inspiring and infuriating. Discussing a new documentary on the patent system, “Invalidated: The Shredding of the U.S. Patent System,” which I had the honor of being interviewed for, we discussed the state of the patent system and American innovation.

There's no doubt about it: President Donald J. Trump has breathed new life into the American economy! With record-breaking 4.1 percent growth in GDP, what anti-Trump critics said was impossible during the 2016 campaign just became reality. Unemployment is low, business is booming, and billions of dollars that were sitting offshore are now re-entering our borders.

On June 30, several European authorities thwarted an attack on the annual Free Iran rally organized by supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). Considering that Assadollah Assadi, the intelligence station chief at the Iranian embassy in Vienna, was arrested along with two would-be bombers, it is abundantly clear that the plot was masterminded in Tehran. While Tehran tried to depict the foiled plot as a “false flag” operation by the opposition, the claim was rejected as ridiculous by a senior U.S. State Department official. In fact, the opposition’s intelligence from inside the Islamic Republic determined that the decision to undertake an attack on the rally was made months earlier by the highest Iranian authorities, including both Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.

Candidate Donald Trump had many Republican critics. Some voted for him only out of concern for judges. With the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, he repaid their confidence in full.

Today, America dominates the globe. It’s easy to forget that the United States almost didn’t exist.

A while back, I wrote about the importance of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision in the Wayfair vs. South Dakota case. Just a couple of weeks ago, the Court sided with South Dakota in a narrow ruling to overturn their own precedent (Quill vs. North Dakota) that states cannot force businesses to collect and remit sales taxes unless the business has a physical presence in their state. This ruling raises serious concerns about the future of Internet commerce. At stake in the case, were several important issues of interstate commerce, federalism and due process. Rather than settling the issue, however, the decision only makes it murkier and will require more litigation or, hopefully, a solution from Congress.

One could easily argue that Iran’s ruling theocracy is facing the greatest internal threat to its rule since the 1980s. In the beginning of this year, the country was rocked by a mass uprising. The chain of protests was a major step forward for the domestic Resistance movement in the sense that it extracted political activism from farmers and the rural poor, despite the fact that these groups had long been thought to tolerate or even support the clerical regime.

Democrats long have relied on inaccurate election rolls to aid their candidates. They want to count every vote, legal or not. So, after Ohio’s government cleaned up its registration lists it was hit with the usual claims of left-wing bias. Now the Supreme Court has ruled for the state.

It’s no secret that President Trump has shaken up the Washington, DC establishment in his first 500 days in office. His less than conventional administration is clearly less worried about political niceties and protocol and is squarely focused on creating millions of new jobs. The Trump economy is squashing unemployment rates down to their lowest levels in 18 years – 3.8 percent. 223,000 private-sector jobs were created in May alone. Since President Trump’s election, businesses have added over three million new, private-sector jobs.

For anyone committed to constitutional government, California looks like a lost cause. The political battle rages between the radical-extreme and moderate-extreme. People and businesses are being driven out of the state.

With a number of critical decisions set to be released by the Supreme Court this month, one in particular could have wide-ranging impact on our economy and on the very principle of federalism. In South Dakota v. Wayfair, the Court will decide whether to uphold its earlier decision that states cannot force businesses to collect and remit sales taxes unless the businesses has a physical presence in their state. A bad decision from the court – as well as possible legislation from Congress – would lead to Internet sales taxes that harm hundreds of thousands of small businesses across the nation and change the very face of the Internet economy.

President Trump, in a recent tweet, has drawn attention to a pernicious threat against American interests that has persisted for decades: The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its alliance with other petrostates as they seek to control the price and supply of oil.
