Paul Ryan — Still an Entitlements Reform Crusader?

April 13, 2018

Concerning Paul Ryan’s decision to leave Congress, I am more troubled by its implications for entitlement reform than the impact it may have on the GOP agenda or the November elections. The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page said, “Ryan will leave Congress in January with no substantial progress on (reforming Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid), […]

Don’t Let the Left Do It to Pruitt

April 6, 2018

The left’s crusade against Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt should be seen for what it is — a witch hunt. We don’t need any more conservatives hanged by leftists who major in criminalizing political differences and minor in slander. How dare a Republican president appoint an environmental heretic to head an administrative agency the […]

It Depends on What the Meaning of Facts Is

March 30, 2018

Former President Barack Obama (I love the adjective preceding his title) made some comments at the recent Global Opinion Leaders Summit in Japan that I can’t let slide, so please forgive me. “It used to be that the two political parties in the United States would disagree but there was a common base line of […]

Authoritarianism for Me but Not for Thee

March 23, 2018

It’s funny how projection works. These hysterical Democrats calling for President Trump’s impeachment because of his dastardly “authoritarian tendencies” are the ones with authoritarian tendencies. I’ll bet you didn’t know that the president commits an impeachable offense if his political opponents harbor an irrational fear that he has authoritarian tendencies — whether or not he […]

Hillary’s Hateful Harangue

March 16, 2018

Hillary Clinton’s abhorrent remarks in Mumbai, India, last week warrant our attention because, like it or not, they represent the thinking of a large swath of the modern Democratic Party. But my aim is not to highlight Clinton’s never-ending catalog of excuses for losing the presidential election, except to note that rather than blame everyone […]

Democratic Trumpsteria Continues

March 9, 2018

If liberals would quit acting so crazy, maybe they would have a chance of making significant gains in Congress in the upcoming midterm elections and achieve their goal of eroding support for President Donald Trump. But it’s not gonna happen. Liberals’ extremism and outrageousness and conservatives’ failure to stop them created the conditions leading to […]

Obama’s Scandal-Free Delusion

March 2, 2018

Upon hearing that former President Barack Obama recently boasted that he had a scandal-free administration, my first thought after regaining my faculties was: How can I possibly cram all the evidence refuting this in a little bitty column? Then I read that what he actually said was, “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.” […]

Rumors of Conservatism’s Demise Greatly Exaggerated

February 23, 2018

I happened onto a piece by Bill Kristol in The Weekly Standard, wherein he links to “a short, powerful piece in National Review” by Rick Brookhiser, who “concludes that ‘the conservative movement is no more. Its destroyers are Donald Trump and his admirers.’” I somewhat get the sentiment — or at least I used to […]

I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence

February 16, 2018

I’ve repeatedly said that though President Trump gives his leftist enemies plenty of fodder in his tweets to attack him, they would malign any Republican president unless he totally capitulated to their demands — and switched parties. Indeed, they always have. The liberals say Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal […]

There’s So Much Smoke. Why Worry About a Fire?

February 9, 2018

What are we to make of the GOP and Democrats’ dueling scandal wars? So much information, so little time. We’ll have to wait until special counsel Robert Mueller completes his investigation to be sure, but I don’t believe there’s any credible evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to affect the presidential election. On the […]
