Democrats Yelp as Trump Upholds Constitution

Donald Trump is criticized, often justly, for misstatements of facts and failure to understand the details of public policy. But in two of his most recent controversial actions, he has taken stands upholding the rule of law and undoing the lawless behavior of his most recent predecessor. The question now is whether the author of Read More…

Is Liberalism a Dying Faith?

Asked to name the defining attributes of the America we wish to become, many liberals would answer that we must realize our manifest destiny since 1776, by becoming more equal, more diverse and more democratic — and the model for mankind’s future. Equality, diversity, democracy — this is the holy trinity of the post-Christian secular Read More…

But Even Men Deserve Due Process

Everybody despises Harvey Weinstein. Usually, by this time in the public pursuit of a villain, he begins to attract a little undeserved sympathy. Not this time. The accusers keep on coming, with the passion of Emile Zola when he famously wrote, “J’ accuse!” and accused the French government of hounding French army captain Alfred Dreyfus Read More…

Bake This Particular Cake, Bigot

The American media would have you believe there is a concerted effort among Christians in America to discriminate against gay Americans. “No gays allowed,” they claim small Christian business owners are saying. It is a fiction created to avoid dealing with the facts. The fact is I am unaware of any Christian business that refuses Read More…

Harvey Weinstein and Feminism

The chief of Amazon studios, Roy Price, has now resigned in the wake of allegations that he made lewd comments and propositioned a producer. Lists of accused sexual predators in Hollywood and journalism are circulating on social media. President Donald Trump’s long history of pawing and gawking at women has again reached center stage. Actress Read More…

Trump's Executive Moves Have Strengthened Checks And Balances

Say what you will about Donald Trump — and there’s plenty to say — but he may be the first president in memory to actively limit his own branch’s power. Whatever his intentions on immigration, funding issues, international agreements and the regulatory state, Trump has relinquished executive power. When President Barack Obama was governing through Read More…

Media Ignore Real Democratic Scandals

Why the collective liberal media yawn on the multi-headed Democratic scandals surfacing everywhere except on their pages and airwaves? It’s not that the stories are too far-fetched and thin to interest self-respecting journalists, because they are real, damning and supported by sufficiently credible evidence to warrant serious attention and scrutiny. There are the notorious Trump Read More…

Tax Cuts: JFK and Reagan Did It, and Trump is Doing It Too

WASHINGTON – President Trump and Republican lawmakers have plenty of legislative disagreements, but there is one issue that entirely unites them: tax cuts. It isn’t getting the fullest attention it deserves from the liberal news media here, but there hasn’t been this much unity among Republicans on a transformative economic issue since Ronald Reagan. Trump Read More…

The Republican Establishment Strikes

In remarkable speeches this week, two members of what skeptics like to call the “Republican establishment” took on President Donald Trump and his brand of nationalist populism. Neither man mentioned the president by name, but their criticisms were unmistakable. Speaking in Philadelphia, where he received a Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center, Sen. John Read More…

Hollywood Never Apologizes for Ultraviolence

Hollywood’s hypocrisy about Harvey Weinstein is only outdone by its hypocrisy about gun control. We still don’t know why Stephen Paddock unleashed his arsenal in an evil attack on an outdoor concert crowd in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500. But Hollywood’s glitterati seem to know, apparently. They Read More…

Letter from Pennsylvania: Call of the Amazon

There’s a curious line at the end of an Associated Press story regarding Pennsylvania’s ongoing budget impasse: “Now, an analysis by Moody’s Analytics of metro areas that are good fits for Amazon’s huge second headquarters questioned whether Pennsylvania’s budget troubles will make it unwilling or unable to offer the generous financial incentives that Amazon will Read More…

School Opts for Gender Inclusive Graduation Gowns

A popular graduation tradition at California’s Camarillo High School is about to come to an end because – well – because the grownups who run the school district are morons. For as far back as anyone can remember graduates wore gowns reflecting the school colors. The guys wore navy blue gowns and the gals worn Read More…

IRGC Terror Tag Aids Iran's People and the World

Articulating a new policy on Iran, President Trump made some refreshingly poignant statements about the ruling dictatorship. No previous American president has used such blunt terms to distinguish between the Iranian people and an illegitimate regime, or to describe the multi-faceted threat that the clerical regime poses to the region and the world. The timely Read More…

Me Too, But Not You

This week, sexual harassment and sexual assault have been trending on Twitter driven, in part, by actress Alyssa Milano’s Sunday night post, “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” While some women responded with their story or stories of harassment or assault, others simply listed the Read More…

Premiums are Skyrocketing Under Obamacare – Now Brace for Rationing Under Massachusetts Medicaid Waiver Request

The U.S. healthcare system may have its problems, but one it does not face — unlike many other countries with government-run programs celebrated by liberals — is widespread government rationing. It’s one of the most chilling aspects of centralizing the economy: that an unelected bureaucrat can decide whether you are permitted to use a potentially Read More…

Trying to Perpetuate Alarmist Climate 'Science'

Several months ago a brief furor erupted when the New York Times leaked the final draft of the upcoming Climate Science Special Report (CSSR), an extremely alarmist rendition of what is supposedly happening with Earth’s climate. Dangerous climate change and weather events, the report says, are due to mankind’s use of fossil fuels to create Read More…

North Korea Knowns and Unknowns

No one really knows all that much about North Korea’s nuclear or conventional military capability or its strategic agenda. Are its nuclear missiles reliably lethal, are they as long-ranged and accurate as hyped, and are they under secure command and control? Conventional wisdom states that Seoul would be destroyed in minutes by at least 10,000 Read More…

Grizzly Bigotry At The University of Montana

Dear President Stearns (prestalk@umontana.edu): Earlier this semester, I was invited to speak at the University of Montana (UM) as part of a distinguished lecture series funded by an outside benefactor. For ten years, the series has been organized in conjunction with the school of journalism and has involved meetings with journalism students and professors. The Read More…
