Don’t Answer It

There is little less unifying than our collective hate of robocalls. It’s a bipartisan issue, and unwanted calls, by far, elicit the most complaints to the Federal Communications Commission.

NY doesn’t need more evidence of MTA mismanagement

It’s now beyond official: Gross mismanagement and obscene union contracts are the chief culprits driving the MTA’s outrageous overtime costs.

Your tax dollars at work: funding the radical left

You know things are bad when the PC mob comes for Jay-Z

We regret to inform you that Jay-Z has been canceled. No, it’s not his future ­album, or his next concert, that has been canceled — but Jay-Z, the human being. He has been axed, nixed, non-personed.

From the right: Look at Prez’s Actions, Not His Words President Trump “speaks differently from most other statesmen on the world stage,” admits Roger Kimball in American Greatness, and often Trump’s crudeness rankles.

Ignorant Liberals Need To Go Visit America

It’s always good to occasionally leave deep blue west Los Angeles and visit the United States.

Joe Biden has bigger problems than just gaffes

Joe Biden, 76, has been getting heaps of attention for his verbal gaffes. Alas, voters should worry about a far bigger problem: It’s impossible to know what he stands for.

Republicans Have A Great Opportunity In Louisiana

In 2016, President Donald Trump carried Louisiana with 58 percent of the vote. Every Louisiana statewide elected official, except one, is a Republican.

Liberals Might Learn Lessons From A Time Machine

It has become fashionable in recent years to condemn iconic figures from American history because they possessed slaves. “Progressives” wish to tear down statues now, even of Thomas Jefferson, perhaps the greatest contributor ever to the advancement of human liberty, because he had been a slave owner. What they fail to understand is that societal Read More…
