President Trump, Please Stay the Course

January 12, 2018

It would behoove President Trump to keep faith with his base and remain hardcore on his signature issue, immigration, both because it’s the right thing to do and because it’s the wisest political course. Commentators are speculating as to Trump’s motives in conducting a televised bipartisan conference, during which he appeared open to solutions he […]

Underestimating Trump Supporters

January 5, 2018

It is disheartening to see the ongoing rift between those conservatives supporting President Donald Trump and those opposing him — a rift that began before Trump and may survive his presidency. Many conservatives opposed Trump’s nomination because they believed he was not a true conservative — not even really a bona fide Republican — but […]

A Celebration of Life

December 22, 2017

People often lament that in our celebration of Christmas, we tend to lose sight of its true meaning. Not to be a contrarian, but I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive. At Christmastime, we celebrate family, giving, tradition, friendship, community, love, goodwill and so much else that is great and good about human existence. […]

GOP Needn’t Despair About Alabama

December 15, 2017

Republicans should not be disheartened by Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama, because the election had little to do with Doug Jones — and probably even less with Donald Trump or the Republican agenda. Don’t get me wrong. It’s quite troubling that the GOP’s thin Senate majority just became anorexic, but this election by itself is […]

Republican Trump Critics Missing the Boat

December 8, 2017

I am probably too exercised over the never-Trump faction, because in the end, it’s doubtful it is strong enough numerically to make a significant impact on our electoral politics, but it still bothers me to witness intramural conservative battles. I have no quarrel with those who once self-identified as never-Trumpers but now appraise his actions […]

Memo to GOP: Pass the Tax Bill

December 1, 2017

For a host of reasons, it is extremely important that Republicans pass the most pro-growth tax reform bill that can squeak by both houses of Congress. Though President Trump’s tweets and manners upset a lot of people, what seems to be lost in the mix is that his administration is making progress along many fronts. […]

Being Shoved Into Meaninglessness

November 17, 2017

I’m an advocate of higher education and all, but so much for assuming that the development of common sense and sound judgment are part of the package. A Pew Research Center poll found that 77 percent of Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or more believe a person’s gender can be different from the sex they […]

Don’t Mock Prayer. Pray

November 10, 2017

While the unspeakable massacre in a small church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, brought the best out of people there, it triggered the worst in certain others who see everything through their tainted political lenses. House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted: “Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.” […]

Let There Be Light

November 3, 2017

“Let There Be Light” is a fabulous movie that has taken the box office by storm and by surprise, opening in a modest 373 theaters and exploding to more than 650 in just its second week. Congratulations to director Kevin Sorbo and co-writer Sam Sorbo (also the lead actors in the film), co-writer Dan Gordon, […]

There Is No GOP Civil War

October 27, 2017

Despite the unrequited longings of the left and certain vocal Republicans, there is no civil war in the Republican Party, and there is not even widespread disaffection with President Donald Trump among rank-and-file GOP voters. But this is not what you would assume listening to Democrats and the mainstream media or frequenting the Twitter accounts […]
