Divine intervention of Donald J. Trump

Constitutionally speaking, the most amazing thing about Friday’s blockbuster Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is that anyone found it controversial in the first place.

Why the left will cut Biden loose

Republican pundits and conservative activists are debating whether they can win in 2024 with the successful Trump agenda but without the controversial former President Donald Trump as their nominee.

Red flag laws will lead to gun confiscations

- The Washington Times

Gun control legislation is winding through the Senate, largely on the wings of Democrats but floated, too, by a dozen or so Republicans who’ve seen fit to sign on to red flag laws.These Republicans are politically misstepping. Republicans have no business supporting red flag laws.

Juneteenth v. July 4

Juneteenth is possible because of Independence Day. The radicals pushing the 1619 Project and critical race theory would likely beg to differ with this statement, but the facts make a compelling case.

Our mass shooting problem defies an easy fix

When I was in high school, my homeroom teacher had a sign on her wall that read, “For any complex problem, there is a simple solution that will not work.”

The Supreme Court: Worst case scenario

Nine Justices sit on the United States Supreme Court. Whenever a sitting justice either voluntarily retires or passes away, a vacancy on the court is recognized. The President of the United States nominates someone to fill the vacant seat, with the advice and consent of the US Senate. A nomination to the Court is considered to be official when the Senate receives a signed nomination letter from the President. Once the Senate has held hearings and investigated the qualifications of the nominee, they vote and if a majority is in favor, the person is approved and takes his or her place on the highest court in the land.

Stanley Cup Final hinges on contrast in goaltending

- Associated Press

Avalanche coach Jared Bednar's choice of goaltender could tip the balance of the series. Of course, Andrei Vasilevskiy has the potential to flip it in Tampa Bay's favor, too. He was sharp in Game 3, making 37 saves after allowing seven goals for just the second time in his NHL career.

Gas-tax suspension idea will fail

I do not like $5-per-gallon gasoline any more than any other beleaguered American motorist, but I am disappointed to learn that the president is planning to address the situation by suspending the federal gasoline tax of 18.4 cents per gallon ("Biden weighing federal gas tax holiday, sending out gas rebate cards," Web, June 20). This action is gimmickry, pure and simple -- as was the decision to release gasoline from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which was ineffective.
