Abortion is not a 'business'

It's a tad tinny-eared for 180 or so leading company executives to get together and sign a letter in The New York Times to say America's emerging abortion protections for the unborn are "bad for business." Yes? It's sort of in the vein of saying border laws were bad for Pablo Escobar's business. Published June 11, 2019

Alabama stands tall for the child with new castration law

Alabama's Republican governor, Kay Ivey, just signed into law a measure that allows the state to chemically castrate certain child sex offenders as a condition of their paroles.

Impeach Trump at civil peril

Democrats have set their 2020 course on Impeach Trump, Prosecute Trump, and frankly, this is how it's going to be the next several months. But this road, at its farthest point, doesn't end well.

Male masquerading as female steals another female trophy

This weekend, yet another male -- defined as an individual who was assigned by God at birth as a boy, not a girl, the only other sex option that exists -- took home the top place trophy for his competition in the female hurdler event.

Climate change to bring '25 Holocausts' -- and other stupid leftisms

The sheep on the left would have it bleated otherwise. But this whole global cooling, global warming, climate change debate is pure propaganda. It's not about clean air. It's a Democratic fight for control and dominance and wealth and power. Published June 8, 2019

Perennial anti-President Donald Trumper and prolific writer George Will has penned a new book, "The Conservative Sensibility" -- and guess what: It's about the dire direction the Republican Party has taken post-Trump. Once again, Will's off base, off mark, off the reservation. Published June 6, 2019

Pelosi's 'prison' wish for Trump just pigheaded politicking

If Democrats are supposed to be the party of tolerance and diversity and acceptance, then Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn't exactly the best rep. An example?

Trump shoo-in for reelection, says historian with record of being right

President Donald Trump is on a fast-track slide to a second administration, says one historian whose opinion matters because he's correctly predicted the outcomes of the previous nine White House runs.
