The ACLU’s Ex-Con Army

Not content with filing nuisance lawsuits all over the country, most of them aimed at thwarting the Trump administration, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is plunging into local political campaigns. In Philadelphia, about 40 ACLU ex-con canvassers like Mike Twiggs, 59, who served 41 years for murder, knocked on doors and distributed literature keyed Read More…

The Genius of Roger Ailes

Roger Ailes was no genius, not in the league of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein. The founding chairman of Fox News Channel, who died last week from complications after suffering a fall, understood and respected Middle America from whence he came. When the opportunity arrived to address the legitimate concerns of “flyover territory” about biased Read More…

The Impeachment Delusion

Several things are amiss with the impeachment machine that’s starting to shake and smoke as progressives put their hands to the crank. The first thing is the calendar date. Donald Trump has been president since Jan. 20. That makes his regime — which does have the aura of a regime — four months old. Roman Read More…

The Greatest Measure of Devotion

(Editors Note, this commentary was co-authored with Matthew Howe) On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of our Nation’s greatest speeches, the Gettysburg Address.

Optics Matter During Trump Visit to Israel

President Trump is only hours into his first trip to Israel as President of the United States, but the images being broadcast around the world from the Jewish state deliver an unmistakable message: the United States and Israel are partners who stand together.

A Special Prosecutor for Criminal Leaks

Who is the real threat to the national security? Is it President Trump who shared with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov the intelligence that ISIS was developing laptop bombs to put aboard airliners? Or is it The Washington Post that ferreted out and published this code-word intelligence, and splashed the details on its front page, alerting Read More…

Anti-Confederacy or Anti-Western

A statue of Robert E. Lee is the last of four statues commemorating the Confederacy that leftist activists in New Orleans succeeded in bringing down this past weekend.   All Confederate symbols are monuments to “white supremacy,” the left assures us.  This is the justification for the campaign to erase them from public view.  Pro-Confederate Read More…

Prominent 9/11 Family Leader Passes Away

On May 20, 9/11 Family leader Bill Doyle passed away.  In the 16 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there was no more influential advocate among the many family members of the victims.  Bill leaves an enduring legacy, having done more in the 16 years after September 11 than most did in their whole lifetimes.

Intelligence Leaks and a Duplicitous Press

A Harvard study published May 18 reveals what thoughtful Americans already knew: Extreme anti-Trump bias runs rampant in corporate media. The study found that CNN, CBS, and NBC produced more than 90 percent negative coverage during Trump’s first 100 days, followed by the New York Times at 87 percent, and the Washington Post, 83 percent.

Welcome to CSU-S&M

College administrators have a pretty easy job when it comes to free speech. They are simply there to facilitate a free and open marketplace of ideas while remaining viewpoint neutral on the controversies of the day. Sometimes the universities opt to facilitate advocacy of ideas through the mechanism of mandatory student activity fees. However, the Read More…

Arizona Welfare Agency Bans Political and Religious Speech

Shortly after its Roman Catholic director was fired by the governor, the Arizona Department of Economic Security implemented a policy incredibly — and unconstitutionally — imposing a sweeping ban on religious and political speech. This was done in order to squelch the culture that beloved and popular Tim Jeffries had cultivated at the agency. Jeffries Read More…
