'Abolish ICE' narrative a recipe for disaster for Democrats

In the midst of the remarkable success of President Trump on so many fronts, the Democratic Party leadership is grasping at a new slogan: The call to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. Published July 4, 2018

Maxine Waters advances a liberal strategy with her call for mob action

With the appalling news of the past few weeks of mobs attempting to harass and intimidate President Trump's female Cabinet members and staff, the inclination is to believe that this remarkable behavior, so antithetical to American values, is the result of a lack of leadership in the Democratic Party.

California's new water rationing law is a tax in disguise, complete with fines

Last week's column about California's new water rationing apparently upset some of the Golden State's swamp. This columnist pointed out that a new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown set new "standards" of water usage. Here's what their water-rationing bill (now law) says, in language everyone can understand. Published June 13, 2018

In this April 8, 2015, file photo, water runs off from a sprinkler in Mount Olympus, a neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles. Members of the state Water Resources Control Board are scheduled to decide Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018, whether to bring back what had been temporary water bans from California's 2013-2017 drought, and make them permanent. U.S. drought monitors last week declared that a fifth of the state, all of it in Southern California, is now back in severe drought, just months after the state emerged from that category of drought.

California's new water restrictions send residents fleeing to saner states

"Please sir, I want some more," is no longer a sentiment just for Oliver Twist in the orphanage. A new law in California limits how much water can be used by each household. Now their showers, how many flushes, and how often they can do their laundry will be under the watchful eye of the state government. Published June 6, 2018

Hillary Clinton and her desire to run Facebook

The first question that comes to mind when hearing that Hillary Clinton would like to be CEO of Facebook is: How would they fit all their servers into her bathroom? Published May 30, 2018

The Obama Presidential Center will not be a part of the presidential library network operated by the National Archives and Records Administration. Public park advocates have filed a lawsuit against the city of Chicago seeking to stop construction of the center. The group also wants to bar the city from giving control of the center's site to the Obama Foundation. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)

Barack Obama gilds his legacy

This is a story of priorities and hypocrisy, brought to us by a president who saved the Union and was murdered for it, and a president whose policies and malevolence damaged both the nation and the world, and who is being rewarded for it. Published May 16, 2018

Chip and Joanna Gaines: Celebrating a commitment to family

Last week, an opinion writer caused a bit of a stir by insisting that Chip and Joanna Gaines, of HGTV's "Fixer Upper" fame, are frauds who lie about putting their family first. It's a strange assertion made by someone who has never met the Gaineses, but he decided anyway that the wildly accomplished couple can't put family first specifically because of their business success.

The whining party's scare tactics

For a long time, the Democrats have been successful by scaring people into voting for them. It's a tactic used when you can't persuade people on policy. Published April 18, 2018

Liberals grasp at 'news deserts' to explain Trump win

The poor legacy media. Donald Trump has been president for 15 months, and they're still swathed in crazy sauce, desperately trying to prove that something went wrong, that none of this can be true. Published April 11, 2018

In this Nov. 30, 2016, file photo, artwork and signatures cover a fence around the Pulse nightclub, scene of a mass shooting, in Orlando, Fla.  Jurors in the federal trial of  Noor Salman, the Pulse nightclub gunman's widow, have gotten a look inside his Florida condo through crime scene photos taken as FBI agents searched the home. They also saw some of her husband Omar Mateen's web browsing history Tuesday, March 20, 2018, including beheading videos created by the Islamic State group Mateen had pledged allegiance to. Salman is accused of aiding and abetting her husband in the 2016 attack that left 49 people dead. (AP Photo/John Raoux)

How do you know something very much disturbs the left and their narrative? When it is big news, but if you relied on the Google news lineup, or The New York Times front page, you would have no idea it happened. Published March 28, 2018

A bitter Hillary Clinton strikes again

Hillary Clinton has not had a good week. In the aftermath of her trip to India and awful comments about Americans and women in particular, most of her allies and Democrats in general were explicit that it was time for her to leave the political arena. The shorter message from Democrats to Mrs. Clinton was "shut up and go away." Published March 21, 2018

How Hillary Clinton still misses the point

Woe are the Democrats. For generations now, they've been telling the American people that only they, and their cohort of liberals and leftists, understand and truly value women. Because of their special understanding of women, only they can be trusted to do what's right politically for them, they tell us. Then came Hillary Clinton pulling the curtain back on that dangerously false narrative. Published March 15, 2018

Normalizing the chaos in California

Liberal policy failure is all around us and destroys lives every day. In California, the destruction of society and individual lives has become so overwhelming, the state's liberal overseers now spend their time covering up where they can and normalizing the chaos as much as possible.

Tracking the real collusion: Obama knew foreign entities were interfering; he did nothing

There is a lot of noise lately, and less signal, about the now debunked "Trump colluded with Russia" narrative. After special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians for trolling Americans during the 2016 election, Democrats and various malcontents are in a tizzy to move their narrative goalposts. "Well," they insist, "Trump said the whole Russian thing was a hoax. Now it's proven it wasn't," or some such nonsense. Published February 21, 2018
