Trump Must Directly Appeal to African Americans

July 24, 2020

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump directly appealed to African American voters for their vote, asking them, “What do you have to lose?” Trump should have received more credit for this, as Republicans have often been criticized for not wooing African Americans from Democrats, who crucially depend on their overwhelming support yet take their […]

Most Trump Supporters Can’t Wait to Vote for Him

July 17, 2020

Commentators came out of the woodwork to ridicule President Donald Trump for allegedly turning his July 14 press conference into a campaign rally (and for being unpresidential). So what if he did? They objected that he veered into other topics when he was supposed to be talking about China and Hong Kong. Horrors! The press […]

The Authoritarian Left Fears a Level Playing Field

July 10, 2020

New York Times columnist Tom Friedman’s proposal that Joe Biden shouldn’t debate President Donald Trump unless “a real-time fact-checking team” is part of the mix is an ironic illustration of the closed-mindedness of the left. Why would Friedman want a candidate who is eager to contrast his views with Trump’s to impose conditions that would […]

We Must Decide Whether We Want to Save America

July 3, 2020

America is in crisis. Her destiny is on the line, and she will survive only if we still love her. A battle rages in the streets, in academia, in the culture, and in the hearts and minds of the American people over whether America was and remains a good and great nation. I have always […]

America’s Survival Hangs in the Balance

June 26, 2020

How long can this nation survive when its main cultural and educational institutions preach a relentless, unchallenged stream of anti-Americanism to young people (and others) who lack the background to resist this toxicity? Along with others, I have long argued that the American left has a major problem with America as founded. Yet Democrats are […]

The Silent Majority Can Be Silent No More

June 19, 2020

Lately it seems that we conservatives can’t win even when we’re winning. But the country is under siege, so we cannot indulge the luxury of being discouraged. This year has been one body blow after another to the nation we love. First, there was the coronavirus, and we thought, “How can this get any worse?” […]

Time for Trump Haters to Put America First

June 5, 2020

Once again, President Donald Trump is being scapegoated for societal problems that he didn’t cause. He didn’t bring the coronavirus to our shores, and he has not created an atmosphere of racial disharmony in this country. Is there anything Trump’s haters won’t blame on him? They’ve been trying to remove him since before he was […]

Kayleigh McEnany Shines on the Job

May 29, 2020

Don’t listen to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s predictable critics. The level of vitriol the leftist media hurls at her daily — during and apart from the press briefings — conclusively proves she is doing a superb job. Liberal journalists whip their long knives in her direction and seem shocked she doesn’t grovel. They’ve […]

No, Obamagate Is Not a Trump Diversion

May 15, 2020

No, President Donald Trump is not ranting and raving about Obamagate to keep himself center stage or to distract attention from COVID-19, as liberal media are suggesting. They still don’t get Trump. Two recent columns contend that Trump has ulterior motives in harping on Obamagate — the notion that the Obama administration tried to destroy […]

Trump’s Critics Can’t Have It Both Ways

May 8, 2020

The left’s position on the nation’s proper response to the pandemic, though shrouded in the language of compassion, is incoherent and morally repugnant virtue signaling. Since this calamity began, many national Democratic leaders, the left-wing media and various never-Trumpers have been more interested in smearing President Donald Trump — no change there — than helping […]
