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)

The FBI and Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen

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

Hillary Clinton's loss and the 'macho atmosphere' excuse

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says the "macho atmosphere" of the 2016 campaign is what doomed Hillary Clinton. A more reasonable argument is that Mrs. Clinton wasn't macho enough to make it to the White House. Published February 14, 2018

Dawn breaks over the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, as House GOP leaders are proposing to keep the government open for another six weeks by adding a year's worth of Pentagon funding to a stopgap spending bill. But Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says that approach, fully funding the Defense Department but only providing temporary money for the rest of the government, won't go anywhere. (AP Photo/J.

The sins of a bloated, unaccountable government

A new audit about a Pentagon agency losing hundreds of millions of dollars is reported by Politico as an "exclusive." While that's technically correct, a government agency losing or wasting or misplacing millions, billions and even trillions of dollars (this is not hyperbole, folks) is nothing new.

David Ige addressed the media during a press conference at the Hawaii Emergency Management Center at Diamond Head Saturday following the false alarm issued of a missile launch on Hawaii. Gov. Ige has appointed state Army National Guard Brig. Gen. Kenneth Hara as new head of Hawaii's emergency management agency after a faulty alert was sent to cellphones around the state warning of an incoming missile attack. (George F.

Excuses, obfuscation: Hawaii's false alarm shows incompetence of liberal government

Hawaii. Even just the name promises paradise, and rightly so. The islands and her people are magnificent, an example of how humanity can be a working partner with the power and beauty of nature. Until politicians and the incompetent (but I repeat myself) turn a tool meant for good into a button for terrorizing. Published January 25, 2018

Golden Globes: Another round of 'Hollywood fakery'

Most people did not watch the Golden Globes, one of the many parties in which the entertainment industry pats itself on the back and gives its friends awards. But, to paraphrase a few on Twitter, it was at least nice for Hollywood take a break from raping each other for at least one evening. Published January 10, 2018

As the Iranian people rise up, Hollywood curls up

Americans got a tax cut. The economy is booming. Hispanic and African-American unemployment rates are at historic lows. The ISIS "caliphate" is destroyed. In the United States, MS-13 gang members are now afraid for their future, while American citizens finally have a sense their future is back. All of this was enough to throw actress Alyssa Milano into the fetal position. Published January 3, 2018

Rape, sex trafficking and the spread of disease on the U.N.'s watch

There was a gift you may have missed. On Christmas Eve, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, announced a sizeable cut for the U.N. operating budget to the tune of $285 million dollars. That sounds like a lot, and it's a good start, but that's all it is. Ambassador Haley called the cut "a step in the right direction," and implied there would be more to come.

Drain the education swamp: College students' tyrannical behavior must be stopped

How many conversations have we had with our friends, family and co-workers wondering what happened to the millennials? We expect a new generation to have new ideas and new ways of approaching the world. So how do we explain when a new generation is steeped in bullying, complaining about hurt feelings, demanding "safe spaces," and using pride in fragile egos and weakened emotional states as the excuse to condemn free speech?

More gun safety regulations won't help when bureaucrats are unaccountable

We know the Nov. 5 Texas church shooting massacre should never have happened. Because we can never expect a moral position from a monster who would do that, as a nation we have regulations and laws in place that should have prevented the previously convicted domestic batterer from buying his firearms.
