The deadly impact of identity politics

In the aftermath of the horror of the Charlottesville riot, there's been less condemnation by the media and the left of the neo-Nazi that is charged with murdering Heather Heyer and injuring at least 19 others than there has been of President Trump. Published August 16, 2017

Caitlyn Jenner commits a hat crime

Imagine this: Someone goes through massive body-altering, gender-changing surgery, changes her life and risks the rejection of her family, all in order to be her genuine self. Published August 9, 2017

The compulsion to confess

Lots of talk about language this week. Anthony Scaramucci, the ousted pick for White House communications director, was removed, apparently, for a variety of reasons, the most public being a vulgarity-laced conversation with a reporter. Published August 2, 2017

'Conform or else': Democrats bully conservative women, minorities

On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages." Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here's a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: "A Bully's Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don't Conform, We'll Ruin Your Life."

Weaponizing language and communication

Fake news has become known for being a false story, gossip or even lies promulgated by the legacy media. We know what our news media establishment often delivers is nothing more than opinion masquerading as news. That in itself is a huge problem. We're all learning about how to recognize it and how seriously to take it, if at all. Published July 19, 2017

The brilliant wrestling match tweet

There are many discussions about the President Trump "wrestling" CNN tweet, but it's time to get to the heart of the matter: that the tweet was brilliant, anticipating a ridiculously overwrought reaction by the legacy media, and boy, did they deliver. Published July 5, 2017

The alarming indifference of liberals

Two weeks ago, a deranged gunman, nourished on leftist hate and rage against conservatives, went to a baseball field with the intent of assassinating Republican congressmen. Published June 28, 2017

The fallacy of 'unhealthy competition'

Just when you thought liberals were focusing only on destroying our government, there is now ample evidence that fellow travelers have been working diligently to destroy the ideas and dreams of our young people. Published June 21, 2017

Trump and the liberal hate-fest

Almost six out of 10 American voters are angry and dissatisfied with how the media is covering politics, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. Someone has finally united us, and it's through rejection of the 24/7 media (read liberal) hate-fest of President Trump. Published June 14, 2017

Stephanie Packer, a chronically ill patient, tells reporters she opposes physician-assisted suicide on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at the Nevada Legislature in Carson City, Nev. She joined doctors and other activists against Senate Bill 261 at a news conference after Democratic lawmakers cancelled a hearing on the proposal that would allow Nevada physicians to prescribe life-ending drugs to patients with prognoses of six months or less to live.

Abusing assisted suicide laws

As we remain inundated with the news and chaos of terrorist attacks, a life-and-death struggle is emerging here at home, manifesting some of the same threats to Western values, and even to the core understanding of civilization itself and its value of life. With the passage of assisted-suicide laws, there are new reports that health insurance companies are refusing to cover lifesaving medical care and are offering to pay patients to kill themselves instead.

An update on the Trump revolution

It's time for an update on the Trump revolution, but it comes with a warning: Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, liberals, leftists and the media won't be happy. Published May 31, 2017

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
