The Trump-Reagan parallels

The media laugh at any attempt to compare President Trump with former President Ronald Reagan, but there are many similarities, not the least of which are the withering attacks both men endured while running for and as president. Published February 22, 2017

The continuing meltdown of liberal Hollywood celebrities

During the election and after the inauguration of President Trump we've been swamped with vile, sanctimonious lectures from the smug smart set, a privileged class of superrich celebrities, actors, television comedians and music performers. Published February 15, 2017

In this undated photo provided by the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, a flock of European starlings litter a feedlot in Fallon, Nev. Land owners surprised to discover tens of thousands of dead birds across the high desert are criticizing the federal government over a mass killing of starlings in northern Nevada. An Agriculture Department spokesman said a pesticide was used to destroy the birds to prevent the spread of disease to dairy cows. Some area residents, however, say the government should have done more to alert the public and to dispose of the dead birds. (AP Photo/USDA APHIS, Jack Spencer) ** FILE **

How the USDA failed conservatives

After decades of transparency, why did the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) suddenly delete its database of animal welfare violations? This is raising red flags for liberals, but it is a nonpartisan issue and should be of special concern for conservatives for a variety of reasons. Published February 8, 2017

How Trump strengthens national security

You think you may know what the big news has been for the past few days, and in part, you'd be right. President Trump signed an executive order strengthening our national security by establishing a limited moratorium on travel to the United States from seven failed and/or state sponsors of terrorism.

This divided nation

After everything that has happened in the last year, the Democrats still have learned nothing. Their answer to the election of Donald Trump? A Women's March that does nothing to save a deluded party still cannibalizing itself. Published January 25, 2017

The bullies at the gate ahead of the Trump inauguration

As Jan. 20 approaches, the bullies are at the gate. Hollywood, liberals and the political establishment are panicking because they have no idea what to expect when Donald Trump officially becomes the president of the United States. Published January 18, 2017

Defending national security, when convenient

A main refrain from Democrats these days (and the scraggly band of Never Trumpers, apparently now led by Sen. John McCain) remains how the Russians "hacked the election." Observers understand this is meant to delegitimize the election of Donald Trump, but what it also exposes is the rank hypocrisy of crusty and desperate political operatives and federal bureaucrats.

Failing the children of California

At the start of each new year we're subjected to a whole host of new laws. The modern liberal government, you see, imagines itself not as the champion of individual freedom but as Mommy and Daddy, a taskmaster charged with controlling your life. Most of the time, it makes everything, including our lives, worse. Published January 4, 2017

Remember the Christian bakers

A funny thing happened on the way to the Donald Trump inauguration -- liberals suddenly became champions of people being allowed to decline participating in something if it violated their conscience. Published December 28, 2016

The Democrats' flawed 'hope' agenda

Michelle Obama, in her final interview at first lady, spoke to Oprah Winfrey for an hour, and the headlines make quite clear what her message is: After eight years of her husband's "hope" agenda, hope is now suddenly gone. Published December 21, 2016

Legacy media fakery

"Fake news." Funny, isn't it: After all these years and only after Hillary Clinton loses the presidential election to Donald Trump do we hear about the ominous scourge of the newly dubbed "fake news." Published December 14, 2016

Gay liberals whiff on trying to bully Christians

An important paradigm shift seems to be happening. Case in point: Typical gay liberals decide to publicly bully Christians because of their faith. Bullies then expect all hell to break loose, with targeted Christians being frightened into either disavowing aspects of their faith or, more likely, their business or livelihood being destroyed after a campaign of public hate and derision.

The liberal romance with Fidel Castro

There appears to be an awful lot of sympathy for the devil out there these days. The death of Fidel Castro, a mass murderer masquerading as a "president," exposed the bizarre romance liberals have with tyrants. Published November 30, 2016

'Hamilton' cast airing grievances to Mike Pence was rude, wrongheaded

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday originally celebrating a good harvest, and then when a first national Thanksgiving was declared in 1789, Gen. George Washington proclaimed it "as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God."

It begins now: Election starts reclamation of nation

There have been enough twists and turns during these last two weeks before the general election to give Space Mountain at Disneyland a run for its money. A roller coaster ride is fabulous, but one of the main reasons you can let go and enjoy it is because you know how it's going to end. Published November 3, 2016

This time of crisis: Dems say everything is fine, but they are wrong

On a rare occasion, we Fox News contributors will visit programming off-campus. I did just that last Sunday as a guest on CBS News' "Face the Nation." Any time Donald Trump's candidacy is going to be discussed, you now have to presume it will be less about the issues, and more about the shiny distraction of "accusers" from Mr. Trump's past. Published October 19, 2016

The Clinton campaign's bigotry

How does Hillary Clinton and her gang not love you? Let me count the ways: Standard rednecks. Deplorable. Irredeemable. Not American. Needy Latinos. The mocking of Catholics and Evangelicals, and Southerners. And let's not forget those poor Bernie Sanders-supporting basement dwellers. Published October 14, 2016

Illustration on voter fraud by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Voter fraud is real, and it's happening now

When most of us think of voter fraud, we consider specific instances of individuals gaming the system. Voter fraud, however, is a broad, encompassing event, as Matthew Vadum notes at American Thinker: "[E]lection fraud, and electoral fraud, refers to the specific offenses of fraudulent voting, impersonation, perjury, voter registration fraud, forgery, counterfeiting, bribery, destroying already cast ballots, and a multitude of crimes related to the electoral process."
