Today 19:05 GMT

While previous U.S. leaders have opposed totalitarian regimes, no American president since Ronald Reagan has confronted the evils of socialism as forcefully as Trump is doing today by supporting the people of Venezuela as they retake their country from the corrupt socialist dictatorship of disputed president Nicolas Maduro.

Today 19:05 GMT

The latest policy positions from Democrats seeking the White House may hand President Trump a solid re-election victory in 2020, the Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway argued Friday.

Hemingway began by telling the panel if “socialism, vegetarianism and reparations” are the campaign themes of the eventual Democratic nominee, President Trump will “win in a landslide.” “It does appeal to a certain constituency, but on a larger scale, I’m not sure how far it will go,” Hemingway said.

Tucker Carlson: 'Woke' billionaires love socialism because it doesn't cost them much

Today 05:09 GMT

Sit back and watch as the Democratic presidential candidates simultaneously jockey to establish the most left-wing possible credentials and at the very same time, feverishly suck up to the super-rich to fund their campaigns.

This group makes far more of their money on capital gains, which are taxed at only half the rate of your salary, and some of it is not even taxed at all. Under the 2017 tax law, investments in federally-designated opportunity zones evade capital gains taxes entirely.

Web watchdog warns over knee-jerk rules

Friday 21:50 GMT

The White Paper will detail new rules that the government wants introduced for social networks and web giants if they want to operate in the UK, or target services at British citizens.

"The period of time that we've been through, where we simply urged social media companies to do better and left them to regulate themselves, is a period that is now coming to an end," Mr Wright said. There has been speculation that the government is going to announce an internet regulator, similar to the one for TV and telecoms, Ofcom.

Opinion: Putin's empty promises

Thursday 15:25 GMT

This must have been the case for Russian President Vladimir Putin in his speech to the Russian Federal Assembly: Putin reeled off his speech like a seasoned pro, but without great enthusiasm.

Even the state-controlled opinion research institute WZIOM noted in January that trust in Putin has been falling: Only around one third of all Russians still trust him — a historic low not reached since 2005.

Friday 21:50 GMT

Matt Schlapp, who will preside over next week's Conservative Political Action Conference, says Democrats in the age of Donald Trump are “going full-in on socialism, political correctness and tossing aside all our traditions” – so expect CPAC to strike a sharp contrast by focusing on freedom and America's founding principles at the annual gathering outside Washington. “The Democrats are flirting with this idea that the principles that founded this country are actually rotten and need to be cast aside,” Schlapp said in an interview with Fox News on Thursday.

Don't be fooled by Bernie's moneybomb: Sanders 2020 is going nowhere

Friday 17:15 GMT

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders raised nearly $6 million in just 24 hours after announcing his 2020 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, dazzling the chattering class.

Early election surveys place Bernie, Biden and Beto at the top of the 2020 field – another gimmick for pundits who mistake name recognition for reliable support. In 2016, Sanders offered Democrats an alternative to Hillary Clinton – to borrow Phyllis Schlafly’s phrase, “A choice, not an echo.”
