Chaos at the Democratic National Convention

Cleveland versus Philadelphia. So many predicted a cataclysmic disaster for the Republicans during their convention. Yet, it ended up being an organized, well-run event showcasing the reformation of the Republican Party and propelling Donald Trump to the biggest post-convention bounce for either party since 2000.

'Honor killings' and Islamic terrorism

The world is in chaos, as Islamic violence is setting the tone with terrorism. Whether it be Orlando or Nice or the Bavarian train slasher, we're all told it was a "lone wolf" transformed into a monster by "radicalization," one of the left's favorite fabricated explanations.

Charging 'racism' in order to distract

Last year I warned my radio audience that the summer of 2016 would be a summer of race riots. They would be violent. The riots would ostensibly be a reaction to a particular event, but that would be a pretext. The real issue, of course, would be the upcoming presidential election.

What the British revolt signals

Oh what a difference a break makes. On Thursday, our English cousins across the pond voted to leave the European Union. For some reason, they had enough of unelected bureaucrats issuing rules and regulations ruining their lives and throwing the future in the dustbin.

Anti-Trump rallies funded by the left

From Chicago to Albuquerque to San Diego, and now last week's obscene riot in San Jose, California, Americans and the world saw supporters of the liberal agenda violently target Trump supporters, peacefully trying to attend a rally, as though they were prey.

Inefficiency dishonors the troops

On this Memorial Day, as we honor our troops who gave their lives defending freedom, it is worth remembering what makes our freedom so valuable. Every living creature yearns to be free, as it's the foundation to happiness.

Real facts about the Democrats' war on women

Why is the Clinton campaign obsessed about spinning what Donald Trump says about women? It's because they're desperate to have you not notice the damage President Obama and the Democratic Party are actually inflicting on women's lives.

This Monday, Aug. 11, 2015, file photo, shows a Target store in Miami. Target is making a stand on the debate around what type of bathrooms transgender people can use. In a statement posted on its company website Tuesday, April 19, 2016, the discounter, based in Minneapolis, said transgender employees and customers can use the restroom or fitting room facility that "corresponds with their gender identity."

The folly of 'inclusive' restrooms

Never did I think the gay civil rights movement would devolve into irrelevant arguments about bathrooms, but here we are. The newest controversy involving Target stores highlights how leftists aren't concerned at all about bathrooms, but about using gay rights as a cudgel with which to punish those who do not pay allegiance or conform to the liberal agenda.

Debating about Harriet Tubman

We're told our money will be changing. A woman will displace President Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill. Already there is spirited public comment, both for and against. Arguments about tradition and political correctness versus change and honor dominate, with each side making persuasive points.

Hugging it out together

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes he's found the solution to global Islamic terrorism: love and empathy. He has announced that, essentially, all we need to do is hug it out, that perhaps one Giant Hug will overcome the global jihadist network of maniacs who exist only to murder.

Nero fiddled; Obama danced

Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks here at home, I got into the habit of checking my email immediately upon waking to check in on the condition of the world. For the first year after 9/11 we had no idea what to expect day to day; we certainly believed more attacks were on the way.

How tech companies violate privacy

With the Apple versus FBI so-called privacy fight in the news, one would think the tech industry is singularly concerned about your privacy rights. Some recent news reminded me, however, not only how blase the tech industry has been about your privacy, but that it is actively engaged in violating it.

Pursuing cures instead of chaos

If you listen to world leadership these days, you would think there was no real difference between Western civilization and the Islamic world. Whether it be the United Nations, Europe, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, everyone is fixated on a deal between Palestinians and Israel.

Mitt Romney's misstep

I gained a lot of respect for Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential race. He and his wife were obviously terrific people, and he, I believed, would be a wonderful president. I still think that, but after his theater of the absurd last Thursday morning attacking Donald Trump, Mr. Romney has turned from a smart and well-meaning politician to an underhanded plotter.
