The Democratic Party's true, and violent, believers

We have a genuine chicken-or-egg issue regarding antifa and the Democratic Party's true believers. On the one hand, we have the violent liberal group antifa, which exists to punish and hurt people for not believing as they do. On the other, we have the Democratic Party and "mainstream" liberals who exist to punish and destroy people and companies for not sharing their opinions. Published September 5, 2018

Confronting the persistent and deadly opioid crisis

The legacy media's ongoing obsession with President Trump as they work to destroy his presidency has a side benefit for those who want a return of the establishment status quo: There isn't much coverage of a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. The Washington Times headline said it all, "CDC: 72,000 died from drug overdoses in 2017, 42,000 from opioids." Published August 29, 2018

The latest murder by an illegal alien

Knowing Kate Steinle's name has been painful enough. We know of her because she was killed by a criminal illegal alien in 2015. We now know Mollie Tibbetts' name, murdered last month, and an illegal alien has been arrested for that crime as well. Published August 22, 2018

The left's 'identity politics' hypocrisy

Courtesy of California Sen. Kamala Harris, we now have a bit of a hint of the new approach we can expect by the progressives who now control the Democratic Party -- focus on Identity Politics but don't call it that. Published August 8, 2018

Liberals still hysterical over Hillary Clinton's loss get their own 'disease'

A "feeling as though the world is going to end." That could describe what millions of people could have experienced in the last 100 years. World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Sept. 11, the ISIS rampage throughout the world, all not only understandably evoked fear of the world ending, but all revolved around madness, war and genocide.

The Clintons and their pal Harvey Weinstein: America averted a disaster

A year and a half after the fact, we are seeing photographs of Hillary and Bill Clinton at a cozy dinner just weeks after her failed presidential campaign, with accused serial rapist Harvey Weinstein. Having powerful friends like the Clintons is a reminder of not only how someone as disgusting as Mr. Weinstein remained in power, but why people were afraid to act against him.

'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
