I was in the convention hall and the crowd's reaction was unbelievable....Read more
Donald Trump hit two home runs this week. The first, immediately following the horrific terrorist truck attack in Nice, was his statement in a media interview wherein he said that if elected, he would ask Congress for a declaration of war to combat global terrorism. The second was the inspired selection of Indiana governor Mike Pence to join ...Read more
The original Magna Carta was a charter agreed upon by King John of England in 1215. Its 801st anniversary just passed. So no, I wasn't there. But that charter has become part of an important, iconic and political myth that the deal between an unpopular king and rebellious barons marked the beginning of individual English freedoms, personal ...Read more

A lot of investors and economists are making the case that this was a weird, one-off statistical glitch, and that stronger employment is on the way. They may very well be wrong.
If you smooth out the ...Read more

Lawrence Kudlow is off this week. The following column is by Stephen Moore.
