Trump accusers band to demand Congress investigate

The scores of women who've accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment have banded together to demand Congress look into their accusations. Let them be heard. They have a right to speak out as much as the next person. Published December 11, 2017

On Jerusalem, let 'em rage

Let the moaners moan, the wailers wail, Trump was right to recognize the obvious: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Published December 9, 2017

Go, Joe: Sheriff Arpaio eyes Sen. Jeff Flake's seat

Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the law enforcer who raised the hackles, to put it mildly, of the Eric Holder-esque social justice crowd, announced in an interview with The Daily Beast that he's seriously considering a run at Jeff Flake's Senate seat. Why not -- Jeff won't need it. Published December 8, 2017

Germany, overrun, paying migrants to go home

Germany apparently is so overrun with migrants that government geniuses -- the same ones who opened the doors wide to mass migration in the first place -- are now paying them big bucks to take a hike and go home. So much for bleeding heart amnesty, yes? Published December 8, 2017

Delaware parents show teeth and halt gender self-ID in tracks

Parents in Delaware, apparently tired of the ridiculousness, took on education bureaucrats and told them, in no uncertain terms -- and on the wings of 8,000-plus signed petitions -- that a rule allowing kids in grades K-12 to self-identify their sexes without parental permission or even notification, did not meet with their approval.

Jim Jordan's masterful Judiciary performance

Show me the application, dude -- that was the underlying demand from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan to FBI director Chris Wray during a House Judiciary hearing to determine a little bit more about Peter Strozk, the just-fired Robert Mueller attack dog. Published December 7, 2017

Lindsey Vonn's galling Olympian-size diss of Donald Trump

Lindsey Vonn, whose name is known within the sports world for Olympic gold medal skiing and without, for dating Tiger Woods, took some serious potshots at the president en route to this February's winter games in Pyeongchang. And in so doing, she pretty much slammed the country that elected Donald Trump -- the country she's supposed to be representing in the Olympics. Published December 7, 2017

Pope Francis, of all people, moans move to Jerusalem

You'd think the pope at least might be in President Donald Trump's court on the whole Tel Aviv-versus-Jerusalem thing -- the announced move of the U.S. Embassy from the former to the latter and the ensuing recognition of the latter as Israel's true capital. After all, the guy's the voice of the Catholic Church. If anyone might rise above lowly human politics to side with the spiritual on this matter, it'd be Pope Francis, yes?

Nancy Pelosi's idea of 'Armageddon' is a GOP tax bill

Armageddon, biblically speaking, is the sign of the end of times -- the be-all and end-all of battles, the one that pits good against evil and ushers in a period of humanly devastations unlike any ever before experienced. But to Nancy Pelosi, the House's highest-ranking Democrat, Armageddon is the Republican tax bill. Published December 5, 2017

Supreme Court travel ban ruling a return to reason

Citizens from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad -- terror hotspots, all -- and North Korea, as well as segments of Venezuela, are now barred from entering the United States, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling on President Donald Trump's executive attempt to secure the nation and stop the flow of potential terrorists across the borders. Finally, a court ruling with reason. Published December 5, 2017

Colin Kaepernick, bogus hero of the left

Colin Kaepernick is riding high, having just won the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award as well as the American Civil Liberties Union's Eason Monroe Courageous Advocate Award -- honors bestowed, respectively, for sportsmanship and bravery. But Kaepernick is possessed of neither. He's more a tool -- a tool of false leftist beliefs. Published December 5, 2017

President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up after speaking to reporters before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, before heading to Utah. Trump will be announcing plans to scale back two sprawling national monuments in Utah, responding to what he has condemned as a "massive federal land grab" by the government. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

Trump shrinks national monuments -- and with it, Obama's legacy

President Trump took to the road to travel to Utah to announce a historic rollback of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. And in so doing, he put a serious damper on the legacies of both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Insert cheer here. Published December 4, 2017

Sorry, left, Mike Flynn not the smoking gun

The left, including much of the media, are going nuts now, drooling at Michael Flynn's guilty plea as if it's the final nail in President Donald Trump's coffin -- the long-sought means to the impeachment end. It's not. That's ludicrous. And the more hours that tick since Flynn announced his guilty plea, the more ludicrous the left's wild-eyed panting seems. Published December 4, 2017

Mitch McConnell's abrupt softening on Roy Moore

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a rather sudden turn on his opinion of Roy Moore, telling George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" on ABC News that it's the people of Alabama -- not Washington, D.C. -- who should decide the outcome of this Dec. 12 race for Jeff Sessions' old Senate seat. That, after longtime, long-running, very vocal calls for Moore to step aside. Principle, anyone? Published December 4, 2017

Walmart should sell T-shirt: 'Rope. Tree. Journalist.'

Walmart just pulled a T-shirt from its sales ranks that blasted the message: "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Require." But why? After all, what's good for the First Amendment gander is good for the First Amendment goose. Published December 1, 2017

Jimmy Kimmel doesn't appear too shaken up that his Republican viewership has taken a plunge since he waded into politics on his late-night ABC talk show. Appearing on "CBS Sunday Morning," the comedian said he wouldn't change a thing about his approach to President Trump or heated topics like health care and gun control. (CBS)

Jimmy Kimmel goes all Christiany on Roy Moore -- and accepts fight

Jimmy Kimmel, of comedy talk show fame, apparently is a card-carrying Christian who's been so offended by Roy Moore, that he first, sent a character from his show to disrupt one of the Senate candidate's rallies and then, when confronted, jumped on Twitter and late-night TV and agreed to a man-to-man. That's right. Kimmel actually agreed to a fight with Moore. Published December 1, 2017

Trump nails it -- Kate Steinle ends in 'disgraceful verdict'

President Donald Trump tweeted that the trial of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate in the killing of Kate Steinle ended with a "disgraceful verdict." And he's absolutely right. No matter the finding of the jury, it doesn't change the fact Garcia Zarate never should have been in America in the first place -- never should have been on the streets of San Francisco.

Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan to John Conyers: 'Resign' now
