The Monumental Problems Facing our Country

Business is booming. Job productivity is up. Despite the left-wing lies that coal was not coming back, miners are mining like never before. Industry is rebranding and expanding, and educational reforms are underway with Betsy DeVos and her team in the Department of Education. Trump has trumped the media yet again, refusing to cave to Read More…

The Left and Anti-Americanism

It is always maddening for me to hear left-wingers criticize those toward their right of being “unAmerican” and “unpatriotic.” It is maddening because the left, by its very nature anti-American, is by definition unpatriotic. This is not meant to be a criticism, even though there are doubtless individual leftists who will take it as an Read More…

Hate on the Left

The video that appeared more often than any other on my TV screen this past week showed protestors toppling a statue of a confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina. Then kicking it, stomping on it, spitting at it. The Workers World Party is the group that pulled off this feat and they were also involved Read More…

Fair Trade for Thee, but not for Me

“Nobody wants to buy something that was made by exploiting someone else,” Ben & Jerry’s and Fair Trade co-founder Jerry Greenfield likes to tell us. Let’s hope he doesn’t drive an electric vehicle, doesn’t use a laptop or cell phone, and doesn’t rely on wind or solar power. We’re constantly confronted with slogans and lectures Read More…

‘President Trump, Are You Listening?’ Why We’re Urging President Trump to End Cost-Sharing Reduction Subsidies

Health care is at the front line in a power play for America. A White House official announced Wednesday that the Trump administration will continue President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional payment of cost-sharing reduction (CSR) subsidies to insurers through August. Despite outward appearances and media commentary, this is not ultimately about health care. The Affordable Care Read More…

Ending Government Schools Does Not Mean Ending Public Education

My dream of a nation free from government schools and odious teachers unions, wherein parents responsible enough to bring another human into this world are also responsible enough to ensure that human is educated without the government’s help, is unlikely to soon become reality. However, further limiting the influence of our current, failing, monopolistic education Read More…

CNN Publishes Fake Hate List – Targeting Well-Known Christian Groups

Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center. “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared. The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute. Read More…

Learn When to Shut Up, Mr. President

As we’ve said here before, Donald Trump has to learn to just shut up and let things go. The failure to do that is the worst Achilles heel of a president who seems to have half a dozen Achilles heels. Because he can’t think on his feet, because he doesn’t know how to say the Read More…

The Problem with Trying to Wipe Out Historical Racism

The problem with trying to wipe out historical racism, bigotry and the so called white supremacy is in being consistent in what you target. Currently the targets du jour are the leaders and Generals of the Confederate States of America. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis represent the worst of historic humanity according Read More…

Is the Party of Lincoln Now the Party of Lee?

This year will mark my 30th anniversary as a syndicated columnist. During these years, I have written more words than I would have preferred about race. But race is America’s great moral stain and unending challenge. I’ve tackled school choice, affirmative action, transracial adoption, crime, police conduct, family structure, poverty, free-enterprise zones and more. Some Read More…

Death, Dysfunction and Disaster

Just as we have seen corporate leaders deserting President Donald Trump and his pro-growth agenda, in all likelihood it won’t take much for the majority of Trump haters in the Republican Party—both in the House of Representatives and the Senate—to do the same. Of course, such desertion will be the equivalent of these lawmakers indicating Read More…

Colin Kaepernick: History's Hero?

The National Football League’s preseason is underway, and national anthem-hating quarterback Colin Kaepernick still doesn’t have an NFL job. One can easily identify the liberal journalists by their anguish over this so-called injustice. You can also identify them by their dishonest arguments. Washington Post sports columnist Jerry Brewer pulled out a very large straw man Read More…

Unfit to Lead

“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” — Edmund Burke, “Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents” Edmund Burke’s admonition in 1770 should be taken as a warning to us today. The president of the United States this week Read More…

America's Second Civil War

“They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee — and what a leader! … No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller.” So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial “The Oxford History of the American People” in 1965. First Read More…

Ending Down Syndrome—The Nazi Way?

About a year and a half ago I was at an all-day event with friends that consisted of a lot of sitting around in lawn chairs, chatting, and eating too much food.  Since we were a group of my friends and their social acquaintances, it’s not surprising that eventually the conversation came around to a Read More…
