Another lesson from Manchester

After the horrific carnage unleashed by the terrorist attack in Manchester, England, some of the reactions were inexplicable. We're used to jihadis celebrating the horror of mass murder, but it's still perplexing to hear Western leaders and media reissue their bizarre insistence that we need to get used to the sick and depraved.

Frenzied reactions to the Comey firing

The reaction of the Democrats, the media and scattered pathetic "Never Trump" Republicans to the firing of FBI Director James B. Comey has been priceless and actually has nothing to do with Mr. Comey, or any investigation he was leading. Published May 11, 2017

Donald Trump tested by Obama's leftover priorities

President Trump is truly a man alone. This isn't new, as he was elected for that very reason; he campaigned as someone who would confront the status quo, and by doing so, make America great again. Published May 3, 2017

The Democratic Party's 'Gong Show'

Finally, the Democrats admit it wasn't the Russians, James B. Comey or sexism that brought Hillary Clinton down. We are now told by journalists, leading Democrats, and even a former Democratic presidential candidate, that it was the inept dysfunction of the party itself, Hillary, and her abused and frightened team that has reduced them all to irrelevant, vapid political busybodies.

The rot of political correctness

In today's academy, truth is an invention. Expecting people to show up on time is racist. Censorship is good. Silencing opposing viewpoints imperative. Violence to enforce safety is natural. Published April 19, 2017

Hillary Clinton's revenge tour and Nikki Haley's ascent

Hillary Clinton has emerged from the woods determining that her election loss is everyone's fault but her own. But even more surprising was that Donald Trump colluding with the Russians was suddenly no longer the main culprit; no, now it was hatred of women that fueled her loss. But this was no ordinary misogyny, it was the fault of women in particular who apparently hate other women. Or something. Published April 12, 2017

Trumpmageddon

It's not clear how long liberals will be able to keep up their perpetual Trump outrage, but a clever entrepreneur should immediately establish sanatoriums within which Hollywood types, Democratic operatives and "activists" receive the care they need when they collapse from exhaustion.

The left and leggings

Two girls needing to change out of their leggings in order to board a United Airlines flight caused quite the kerfuffle on social media, after a "bystander" named Shannon Watts went into a tweetstorm of clueless, self-righteous indignation. In other words, she was a professional liberal activist, something else the legacy media has chosen to not mention. Published March 29, 2017

The Trump budget and Big Bird

The liberal fainting couch continues to get a workout. Since President Trump announced his budget last week, the poor liberal base has been pummeled with hysterical headlines announcing Mr. Trump's desire to destroy the Meals on Wheels program. Once he's done with that, he'll murder Big Bird. And then after that, the evil and depraved genius has figured out how to completely eradicate all the "arts" in America. Published March 22, 2017

As envisioned by President Trump, some 32 miles of new wall will be built in the Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley sector at a price of $784 million, or $24.5 million per mile. (Associated Press/File)

The curse of criminal illegal aliens

In November 2016, President-elect Donald Trump said this to CBS' "60 Minutes": "What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million, we are getting them out of our country, or we are going to incarcerate." Everyone, especially liberals and feminists, should be grateful he's acting on that promise. Published March 8, 2017

Why the liberal establishment is collapsing

I didn't watch the Academy Awards, but I sure enjoyed them -- via Twitter. The collection of world-famous and super-rich liberals and leftists had one job, and they failed. The spectacular screwup of announcing the wrong winner for Best Picture wasn't even the issue, or about one person making a mistake. Mistakes are made all the time. Published March 1, 2017

The Trump-Reagan parallels

The media laugh at any attempt to compare President Trump with former President Ronald Reagan, but there are many similarities, not the least of which are the withering attacks both men endured while running for and as president. Published February 22, 2017

The continuing meltdown of liberal Hollywood celebrities

During the election and after the inauguration of President Trump we've been swamped with vile, sanctimonious lectures from the smug smart set, a privileged class of superrich celebrities, actors, television comedians and music performers. Published February 15, 2017

Land owners surprised to discover tens of thousands of dead birds across the high desert are criticizing the federal government over a mass killing of starlings in northern Nevada. An Agriculture Department spokesman said a pesticide was used to destroy the birds to prevent the spread of disease to dairy cows. Some area residents, however, say the government should have done more to alert the public and to dispose of the dead birds. (AP Photo/USDA APHIS, Jack Spencer) ** FILE **

How the USDA failed conservatives

After decades of transparency, why did the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) suddenly delete its database of animal welfare violations? This is raising red flags for liberals, but it is a nonpartisan issue and should be of special concern for conservatives for a variety of reasons. Published February 8, 2017

How Trump strengthens national security

You think you may know what the big news has been for the past few days, and in part, you'd be right. President Trump signed an executive order strengthening our national security by establishing a limited moratorium on travel to the United States from seven failed and/or state sponsors of terrorism.

This divided nation

After everything that has happened in the last year, the Democrats still have learned nothing. Their answer to the election of Donald Trump? A Women's March that does nothing to save a deluded party still cannibalizing itself. Published January 25, 2017

The bullies at the gate ahead of the Trump inauguration

As Jan. 20 approaches, the bullies are at the gate. Hollywood, liberals and the political establishment are panicking because they have no idea what to expect when Donald Trump officially becomes the president of the United States. Published January 18, 2017

Defending national security, when convenient

A main refrain from Democrats these days (and the scraggly band of Never Trumpers, apparently now led by Sen. John McCain) remains how the Russians "hacked the election." Observers understand this is meant to delegitimize the election of Donald Trump, but what it also exposes is the rank hypocrisy of crusty and desperate political operatives and federal bureaucrats.
