Lucy pulls the football away from Charlie Brown once again

Herein lies the existential question of the age: is Lucy to blame for constantly pulling the football away from Charlie Brown just as he's about to kick it, or is it his fault for giving her so many chances to make a fool out of him? Published November 3, 2015

Slow your roll on Carly Fiorina

That Carly Fiorina had two stellar debate performances is not up for argument. Neither is the fact that after her last debate performance the pro-life movement owes her a thank you. Published September 22, 2015

We've learned all the wrong lessons from 9/11

Last week on the 14th anniversary of 9/11 the hash tag "never forget" was trending. However, if the current direction of the country is any indication, forgetting is actually quite trendy these days. Published September 16, 2015

Dear Oprah, I'm confused about Kim Davis

Donald Trump 2016? It's up to the conservative movement now

He currently holds unprecedented leads in national polls, including across-the-board edges in all of the early primary/caucus states. His likability numbers with Republican primary voters are on the upswing. Nevertheless, most of the intelligentsia still doesn't believe Donald Trump has much of chance to be the 2016 GOP nominee.

Data proves pro-life is a political winner

Before the hit to the stock market, the nation has been served weeks of macabre videos laying out Planned Parenthood's bloodthirsty lust for dismembering babies to peddle their remains for profits. All the while displaying the chilling precision and emotional detachment of the stone-cold killers they are. Published August 25, 2015

Why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz for president

Fatal attraction: Trump and Team GOP

At this point I'm not sure what's more pathetic. Those willing to defend Donald Trump no matter what he says and does, or those who think the way to drive an alpha-male billionaire out of a presidential race is to sanctimoniously whine about how "offensive" his comments are.

This might be the only way to stop Donald Trump

I was there in the audience when Donald Trump made his unfortunate comments about John McCain's war record as a POW. And then followed it up by admitting to a room of thousands of evangelicals he'd never sought God's forgiveness for anything in his life. Published July 27, 2015

A number of businesses reacted to Donald Trump's comments by cutting ties with the mogul. NBC TV said it no longer would broadcast the Trump-produced Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.

Trump not ruining the GOP brand, the GOP is

In 2014, GOP officials in New York State put forth a full-court press to convince Donald Trump to run for governor. That seems like an eternity ago now, because today the same GOP loathes Mr. Trump so much as a presidential candidate he might as well change his name to "Ted Cruz." Published July 6, 2015
