Charlie Kirk: Virginia Counties Consider Joining West Virginia

Virginia, which already holds the dubious distinction of being the only U.S. state from which two other states were born (West Virginia and Kentucky), could lose dominion over several counties near the West Virginia border. The reason? Big government!

Charlie Kirk: Nothing ‘Unsubstantiated’ About the Facts Fueling Hunter Biden Intrigue

There is a literary archetype for the character that is Hunter Biden. He is the ne’er-do-well offspring of the privileged and powerful man who needs to be helped and coddled but nevertheless ends up becoming an embarrassment for the father. Once the problem becomes bad enough, the powerful pater familias has to step in to help save his ne’er-do-well son. That is exactly what has happened here with the Biden campaign telling news organizations to lay off poor Hunter.

Charlie Kirk: Let’s Raise a Glass to Carson King

By all accounts, Carson King is a decent young man trying to find his way in life. He could have easily, and legally, decided to keep all the money that was given. Instead, his instinct was to do good.

IOWA CITY, IOWA- SEPTEMBER 28: Carson King of Altoona, Iowa, waves to patients in the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital at the end of the first quarter of the match-up between the Iowa Hawkeyes and Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders September 28, 2019, in Iowa City, Iowa. King plans …

Kirk: Trump Defying Rules of Aging

Something I’ve heard discussed since I was a child in my parent’s family room is how presidents dramatically age while in office.  While it is true that everyone “looks” different after four-to-eight years of life, presidents seem to age more dramatically than the rest of us.

Kirk: Trump Should Wage Economic, Not Military, War on Iran

Let us put our economic boot on the throat of the Iranians and encourage as many nations as possible to join us.  With or without them, we have the means necessary to potentially defeat the Iranians without losing a life or firing a shot.

Kirk: First Round of Democrat Debates Shows Media Setting Up Kamala vs. Warren

Last week I engaged in a most unpleasant act of selflessness for the benefit of those to whom I’m most grateful for reading my column and following my podcast. I forced myself to watch both Democrat presidential debates; two nights of reality television that combined the backbiting of Survivor with the “red X” acts on America’s got Talent.


Kirk: How Trump Will Win in 2020

President Trump officially kicked off his 2020 reelection campaign in Orlando Tuesday night. I had the privilege of being in the audience to witness the event live, along with tens of thousands of other enthusiastic supporters.

Kirk: Mueller Is Calling Barr a Liar

Mueller is saying in one breath that if they had not found a crime, they would have said they had not found a crime, while in the next he says, if they had found a crime, they would not have been able to say so.

Charlie Kirk: What People Living in AOC’s District Can Teach Us About Socialism

A recently released Gallup Poll shows that 43 percent of Americans think socialism is a good idea, while 51 percent do not. The timing of the poll coincides with an engaging, albeit non-scientific, video by TPUSA’s Benny Johnson exploring opinions about socialism in AOC’s congressional district.

Kirk: Trump Rallies the Modern Woodstock

At the Green Bay Trump rally, I witnessed a room filled with intelligent, patriotic, and engaged citizens. Every one of them wanted to know their assignment in taking back America.

Charlie Kirk: Social Media Director Dan Scavino Unsung Hero of Trump White House

During a time of war, American liberals love to focus on the “collateral damage” that may be done to “innocent civilians” as part of U.S. military action taken against hostile targets.  While concern for non-combatants can be considered admirable, liberals do not usually extend the same level of worry in matters of domestic politics.

Charlie Kirk: How the Media Is Already Spinning the Mueller Report into Fake News

While folks debate the idea of “fake news,” there is a problem that is far more commonplace and which is virtually an epidemic within the MSM. It is the deliberate tactic of reporting an actual news story but doing so in such a way that you completely control the takeaway for the typical viewer.

Charlie Kirk: Trump Should Tell Americans How to Help Him in SOTU

Citizens need to be asked to help.  It is what then-businessman Donald Trump had to do with his company employees. The American people are willing to go to work in the President’s employ, but they need a better understanding of company objectives and their job description.
