North Korea must be dealt with

North Korea, long a thorn in the side of America -- a thorn that sharpened considerably under the "strategic patience"-slash-do-nothing leadership of Barack Obama -- has seized a third American citizen. And the regime must be dealt an aggressive blow. Published April 24, 2017

Hey, Christian killers: Let my people go

Every hour, around the world, a Christian's killed for the simple reason of worshipping Jesus. And America's response? It should go like this: Hey Christian killers, let my people go. Published April 22, 2017

Obama heads to Chicago to agitate against Trump

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama's about to emerge from the shadows -- and first stop, University of Chicago. Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to -- here's the gist -- use that Leftist Loud and Proud persona to tackle the problem of President Donald Trump.

The New York Times admits wrongdoing? Why, yes -- yes indeed

Did The New York Times just admit wrongdoing? Why yes, yes indeed, the newspaper, through its sports editor, sent an email to The Washington Post taking responsibility for a recent tweet that appeared to show how much the New England Patriots hated President Donald Trump in comparison to Barack Obama -- only the tweet was highly inaccurate. Published April 21, 2017

Scientists go all woman-ey and gear for anti-Trump protests

Scientists -- and granted, that term is used most loosely in this context -- have taken a page from the leftist woman's playbook on How to Defeat Donald Trump in Six Easy Protest Steps and, upset at the president's climate change views, scheduled some mean marches for the streets of Washington, D.C.

Paris terror shows Marine Le Pen, like Trump, is right

A terror attack in Paris -- now there's a phrase we've been seeing quite a bit of in recent times -- could be the final straw for France citizens, the one that drives Marine Le Pen across the finish line. Why? She's right. France needs quick border control and a halt to immigration. Published April 21, 2017

Mike Huckabee hates Comcast, too

Apparently, having a "former presidential candidate" or "former governor" next to your name doesn't get you any better Comcast cable service than the average no-name Joe. Just ask Mike Huckabee. Published April 20, 2017

Squirt gun plus zero tolerance takes out another student

George Soros and his shady $4.8 million U.S. taxpayer deal

George Soros, the self-declared billionaire philanthropist who amuses himself by capsizing and upsetting national economies and by pressing all-things-progressive in politics, has a curious expenditure of taxpayer cash in the amount of $4.8 million. Curiously enough, the money's been sent to Macedonia -- a country that leans conservative, in direct contrast to Soros' own personal political interests. Published April 20, 2017

Gretchen Carlson, ex-Fox-er, presses Congress to fight for women, victims

Gretchen Carlson, one of the many now-former Fox News talents to come forward in recent months to speak of sexual harassment at the cable giant, is now pressing Congress to get in the employee rights game by passing a bill that would make it easier for workplace victims of criminal behaviors to come forward and sue -- without having to use the corporation's forced arbitration clause.

Coulter, Milo, Rice and the loss of free-thinking at colleges

The latest college cave to petulant student demands involves Ann Coulter and Berkeley, and the cancellation of the conservative firebrand's speech over fears of violence. Hey, Berkeley, how about sending out the cops to deal with the law-breakers -- rather than squelching the free speech of the innocent? Published April 20, 2017

Charity keeps America free

President Donald Trump's senior advisers, deep in the weeds of tax reform, are reportedly looking at ways to save the middle class by placing more financial responsibilities on the shoulders of the wealthy -- and part of the plan being discussed is to limit the level of deductions charitable organizations can take. This is the wrong way to go. Published April 20, 2017

Seattle shocker as council doles tax bucks to help illegals fight deportation

Now this is an impeachable offense -- if city council members could be subjected to such treatment, that is. Seattle City Council members have given the OK for $1 million of taxpayer dollars so illegals can hire attorneys and tap into legal services that will -- get this -- help them fight their deportations.

'Allahu akbar' screaming man charged with hate crime in murders

A black man who was arrested for fatally shooting three white men in Freson, California, and then shouting "allahu akbar" before surrendering to police, is believed by authorities to have been a racist, not a terrorist. Maybe. But he didn't shout "allahu akbar" for nothing. Published April 19, 2017

Aaron Hernandez, a tragedy of wasted talent

Aaron Hernandez, of former NFL fame, killed himself in prison, the Department of Correction reported. The former New England Patriots tight end was found hanging from a bed sheet attached to his single-cell window in his Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., shortly after 3 a.m. What a tragedy. A tragic end to a life that had become a tragedy. Published April 19, 2017

Le Pen, a la Donald Trump, warns 'mass immigration' brings 'terrorism'

France's presidential hopeful, Marine Le Pen, called for a halt to immigration, saying in the lead-up to the first round of elections that all the refugees running across the border are decimating the country's culture. It's like Donald Trump for the French, and in female form. Published April 18, 2017
