‘Armstrong,’ a New Comic Novel

August 31, 2018

I want to tell you about one of the funniest books I’ve read in a while. It’s a novel called “Armstrong,” and it imagines that Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Written as a letter to Custer’s wife, Libbie, it is a page-turning adventure that’s genuinely clever and engrossing. […]

Identity Politics: A Cynical Electoral Tactic

August 17, 2018

No offense, my Democratic friends, but only in the modern Democratic Party could a Democratic icon such as Andrew Cuomo fearlessly and publicly claim that America “was never that great.” Just two decades ago, few Democrats would dare make that statement. Lest you fall for the lie that this was merely a one-off hyperbole, notice […]

Congratulations to Rush for 30 Remarkable Years

August 3, 2018

This week marks the 30th anniversary of my brother’s national syndication in radio, and it has been a phenomenal success. Congratulations and kudos, Rush. Rush was born for broadcasting, especially radio broadcasting. While he has enormous talent and makes broadcasting look easy, he cultivated his skills into a finely developed art through years of dogged […]

Seeing Trump’s Forest

July 27, 2018

Writing in the The Weekly Standard, Andy Smarick warns fellow President Trump critics against falling into the seductive trap of weighing Trump’s actions piecemeal and missing the cumulative effect of his assault on dignity, if I may paraphrase. Smarick seems concerned that GOP Trump foes are lowering their standards, relaxing their guard, perhaps even slowly […]

The Democratic Party’s Christian Problem

July 6, 2018

People on the left are outraged when you question their patriotism, their dedication to the nation as founded and their respect for the Constitution as originally written, but they continually vindicate our concerns. The most recent example is the left’s unhinged mania at Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s inclusion on President Trump’s list of potential Supreme […]

Our Reaction to the North Korea Summit Depends on Our Predisposition About Trump

June 15, 2018

It goes without saying that Democrats would view President Trump’s North Korean negotiations quite differently than Republicans, but I was honestly surprised by the strong negative reaction of Trump critics on the right. Don’t get me wrong; some Trump critics on the right reflexively oppose everything he does or says, but my gut reaction when […]

‘Fake News’ Is Not a Fake Term

June 8, 2018

The left and Trump-opposing right are predictably annoyed at President Trump’s persistent description of the liberal media as “fake news.” Like it or not, the term as he uses it has merit. Trump’s opponents hysterically claim he threatens the free press when he uses that term to describe them, just as they accuse him of […]

Roseanne, Trump and the Myth of Conservatives’ Racism

June 1, 2018

Roseanne Barr posted what many are convinced was a racist tweet, and ABC summarily canceled her sitcom. As Roseanne is considered a Donald Trump supporter and Trump is widely accused of racism, people are loosely smearing Trump as responsible for her, however indirectly. Maybe I’m defensive about loose charges of racism, but if so, I’ve […]

The Real Story: Destroying Trump and Protecting Clinton

May 25, 2018

You don’t need to believe that the special counsel investigating President Donald Trump is a terrible person to conclude that the Obama administration and Clinton machine (and later their holdovers during the Trump administration) politicized and weaponized federal agencies to protect Hillary Clinton and damage Trump. So if you just can’t shake your instinct that […]

The Leftist Duumvirate Is Subverting, Not Protecting, ‘Our Democracy’

May 18, 2018

It is increasingly clear that the Trump-hating holdovers from the Obama administration and their media enablers — together, the duumvirate — are not protecting “our democracy” but subverting it by fraudulently scandalizing and delegitimizing President Trump. To avoid an email avalanche, let me emphasize that I know the difference between a democracy and a constitutional […]
