OK, GOP: No More Excuses!

July 21, 2017

Until now, I haven’t been too concerned about the Republican Party’s difficulties in passing a health care reform bill because delays have resulted in improvements to the proposed legislation. But enough is enough. No more games. It’s time to quit the finger-pointing. Neither congressional leaders nor President Trump have done enough to whip votes and […]

Retaining Our Principles Includes Keeping Our Eyes on the Big Ball

July 14, 2017

Amid the endless media obsession with Trump scandal allegations, important policy issues are getting short shrift. Considering that the left is happy with the status quo — the autopilot advancement of statism — this can only please Democrats. Based on the overwhelming trend of national and state elections since 2010, the nation now firmly rejects […]

The Ongoing Frustration of Trump’s Conservative Critics

July 7, 2017

The frustration of many Trump critics on the right, or MTCRs, is palpable and growing. Some are becoming more elitist by the day and utterly out of touch with rank-and-file conservatives, which is a particularly bitter pill to swallow because they believe they are the main arbiters of what conservatism means. Some are obviously disgusted […]

Mark Levin’s ‘Rediscovering Americanism’

June 30, 2017

My friend Mark Levin is nothing if not a patriot of the first order. He loves the United States and its founding principles — and his latest book, “Rediscovering Americanism,” explains his passion and encourages ours. Levin believes that America’s greatness lies in its unique founding ideals — and documents — and correctly observes how […]

Democratic Party More Bankrupt Than Ever

June 23, 2017

The Democrats’ comprehensive meltdown after their fifth straight election loss is a spectacle worth savoring. They’re vacillating between denial and self-flagellation, between consuming depression and delusional optimism. Some are even blaming hacking for the loss. Don’t let them fool you; they did not expect carpetbagger Jon Ossoff to lose to Karen Handel in the special […]

Leftist Extremism Is Mainstream Leftism

June 16, 2017

Just in case you think the political left has become more rational or less extreme, I refer you to the following examples demonstrating otherwise. Some will say these are extreme cases, not representative of mainstream leftist (excuse the oxymoron) thought and practice, but we see such examples all the time — not to mention that […]

Trump Won, Comey Minus One

June 9, 2017

Trying to be objective — and that’s sometimes difficult for me when it comes to politics — I don’t agree that former FBI Director James Comey’s congressional testimony was equally good news and bad news for President Trump. Trump came away a decisive winner. Most agree that Trump benefited from Comey’s admission that Trump was […]

Hillary Clinton — Endless Sore Loser

June 2, 2017

Attacks on President Donald Trump are commonplace — many depict him as this wildly bizarre, classless person occupying the Oval Office — but have critics fairly considered what a horror show a Hillary Clinton presidency would have been? Why is this relevant, you ask? Well, because the liberal media are permanently afflicted with Trump derangement […]

Pros and Cons of Trump’s Budget and Cons of Dem Demagoguery

May 26, 2017

Demagoguery and propaganda are enemies of good governance, but nowhere is that more apparent than in the federal budget, on which Democrats are shameless and too many Republicans are feckless. Sages from American history presciently predicted that our republic would be in jeopardy if voters acquired the power to vote themselves money from the public […]

Defending Trump Against Excessive Charges Is Not Selling Out

May 19, 2017

One thing should be clear, at least to Republicans: The left has had the long knives out for President Donald Trump since before he was inaugurated. It intended to destroy him regardless of his conduct in office. Liberals and even some conservatives contend that Trump’s defenders on the right are tainted, partisan, idolatrous cheerleaders who […]
