'Christ' Purged from Christmas and the Left Rejoices

Newsflash: The War on Christmas is over. Those who rightfully believe that Christ needs to be a part of Christmas and those rebelling against the politically correct tyranny looking to strip all spirituality from the holiday have lost. You have lost. We…have lost. According to the latest results from the Pew Research Center – and Read More…

Reducing Antiquities Act Land Grabs

Acting on recommendations by Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, on December 4 President Trump significantly reduced the size of two enormous areas in Utah that Presidents Clinton and Obama had set aside as limited-access, no-development zones under the 1906 Antiquities Act.  Mr. Trump’s action reduced the Grand Staircase Escalante and Bears Ears National Read More…

The Tipping Point

The time is now to make a change.  Regardless of their career, women have had it with being diminished, condescended to, passed over, and belittled. They have had it with inappropriate touching, leering words, innuendos, and emotional or verbal abuse. Regardless if it’s the entertainment world, a school, a doctor’s office, a bank, or Capitol Read More…

GOP Senate: Tax Reform or Bust

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been a disaster for the Republican Party and has been a totally ineffective partner for President Trump in passing critical legislation. After failing on the vitally important bill to repeal Obamacare, McConnell and his Republican colleagues face a major test in the tax reform bill. The stakes could not Read More…

Showtime Vs. Christianity

The Golden Globe Awards nominations have been announced, and once again, the Hollywood judges really know how to find the worst junk to honor. Two nominations went to stay-classy Showtime’s program called “SMILF,” which stands for “Single Mother I’d Like to F—.” The show’s lead actress is also its creator and executive producer. Her name Read More…

The Future for Republicans

Senate Republicans breathed a big sigh of relief Tuesday night when Roy Moore went down to defeat in the Alabama special election — even though it halved their already razor-thin majority. Alabama voters rejected a man who was totally unfit to serve as U.S. senator, not just because of numerous allegations that he preyed on Read More…

Why We Can't Let the Creeps Write the Rules

Maybe we need a fresh perspective. Everybody regards sexual harassers as creeps. We’re watching them fall on their swords of necessity and regret, as much for being caught as for what they’ve actually done. Some of the rest of us, however, are acting a little too much like Madame Defarge in Charles Dickens’ “A Tale Read More…

If He's Lost Fox Viewers…

The most important poll number to come out this week had nothing to do with defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. It had to do with Fox News and Donald Trump. We’ll get to the numbers in a minute. First: some disclosure. I’m a Fox contributor and a Trump skeptic (aka a former “Never Trumper”). Read More…

Picking the Lock in Alabama

Turnout would be the key to which of the wildly conflicting polls would best presage the result of Alabama’s special Senate election, wrote Republican consultant Patrick Ruffini earlier this week. That proved correct. Statewide, turnout was down 37 percent from November 2016. It was down less, 31 percent, in the five metropolitan counties around Birmingham, Read More…

GOP Needn't Despair About Alabama

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 Read More…

It Wasn't All Steve Bannon

Republican politics was starting to feel like a version of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers.” In the play, two scammers devise a tax write-off scheme in which they will make a killing by losing money on a Broadway show. They reach for the most grotesque, tasteless musical the human mind can conceive — “Springtime for Hitler” Read More…

The Media's Democratic Ties

This past week, the Washington Post ran a pretty incredible story about the Democrat opposition research group, Fusion GPS. The organization has never fully been vetted by journalists because it has spoon fed so many stories to so many reporters. The reporters have been protecting their source. In fact, even the Washington Post did not Read More…

Pharma’s Failed Blame Game on Drugs

One of the most notable political eyesores of recent years has been the issue of high drug prices. Since 2015, the public has been hungry for a solution to this problem. Indeed, even in 2015, there was a level of bipartisan agreement that drug prices were too high that today would be seen as shocking. Read More…

Are the Republicans in Big Trouble in 2018?

Many media outlets described the defeat of Roy Moore in Alabama as a defeat of President Trump, as if the voters in rejecting Moore were rejecting Trump. And, with Trump’s approval ratings so low, does this predict a disastrous outcome for Republicans in 2018? According to Chris Cilizza on CNN.com, based on his analysis of Read More…

Planned Parenthood Could Care Less About Women

Two companies in California that procured and sold aborted baby body parts that they bought from abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, reached a $7.8 million settlement after they were caught illegally profiting off of these body parts.  The investigation and fines happened because of the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress, which shook Read More…

Here We Go Again

For the second time in two months, someone who has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State has plotted to kill innocents in New York City and has executed his plot. According to police, at the height of the Monday morning rush hour this week, in an underground pedestrian walkway that I have used many times, Read More…
