'Oscars 2020' parades Hollywood's contempt for everyday Americans

SOTU: A story of triumph for Trump but not for the Democrats

Despite years of efforts by the increasingly desperate establishment to destroy him, the story remains one of triumph for President Trump and the country. His State of the Union address on Tuesday was well-received even among the most partisan of media figures. Published February 5, 2020

CNN outdoes itself with arrogant and smug ridicule of Trump supporters

The extraordinary display of bigotry and contempt for Trump voters presented by CNN's Don Lemon and two guests -- New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali and Republican ex-strategist Rick Wilson -- aired Saturday night and went viral on social media with one video garnering more than 10 million views, and counting.

Women's March shrinks to a mere 10K Trump haters who can't acknowledge the president's successes

You might have missed news of the 2020 manifestation of the so-called Women's March, the anti-Trump mob masquerading as a women's rights effort. Launched in 2017 after President Trump's win for the presidency and the second abject failure of Hillary Clinton's run for the office, you didn't hear much about this year's event from the legacy media because it collapsed under the weight of its own hypocrisy and fraud.

How Democrats stir bigotry and division

At the end of this second decade of the new millennium, it's natural to draw up our lists indicating our favorite movies, music and draw up our prognostications about what last year's polls mean about this year's politics. Yet, strangely and horrifically, the last month of 2019 provides the best overall predictor for what's ahead in 2020. Published January 1, 2020

The enduring spirit and optimism of the American people

On this Christmas Day, if we were to reflect on the last few years, we would recall the unending attacks on our character and motivations by the political and media establishments. During this time of gratitude and reflection, I'm sure that we agree to once and for all reject the evil cartoonish versions of ourselves perpetuated by a jealous and panicked establishment and instead focus on who we really are.

Obama's dangerous myth about women and leadership

Democratic reliance on dangerous myths and falsehoods is no longer a bug but a feature of their narrative and philosophy. Case in point are comments made this week by former President Barack Obama. At an Obama Foundation Leaders event in Singapore, Mr. Obama, relying on gender stereotypes, perpetuated an undeniable, and dangerous, myth that women are not just better than men, but inherently better leaders.

Impeachment: The Democrats' chosen recourse to overturn 2016 election

The prospect of President Trump being impeached by the House of Representatives should not be surprising to people.
