Politicians on the take?

Politicians shut down businesses because of COVID-19. But the rules don’t apply to everyone. In San Francisco, gyms were forced to close, but government gyms stayed open. In my new video, we see a Dallas woman being jailed for keeping her salon open and a New Jersey man getting ...

Lawn-sign virtue signaling and the death of politics

This week, America’s West Coast found itself on fire. Millions of acres have burned across California, Oregon and Washington. The smoke clouds have been so immense that they have blotted out the sun in certain areas; air quality has been so poor that hundreds of thousands of people have been ...

The hit-job parade of anti-Trump authors

It must be fall campaign season, because our incredibly tilted Democratic media are rotating through a series of authors ripping into President Donald Trump. Start with the most overpraised journalist in Washington, Bob Woodward, who is the same age as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden ...

President Trump brokers Middle East peace and prosperity

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman observed in a column he wrote in 1996 that “no two countries that both have a McDonald’s have ever fought a war against each other.” Some have looked into how ironclad this rule is. But, in general, the point is pretty powerful. The ...

The Democrats pick the criminal

On Aug. 23, 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a black man, was shot seven times in the back by a white police officer. The original video, which only included the last moments of the incident, gave no context for the incident. But further video and police reports made clear what happened. According ...

The folly of Biden’s COVID-19 advisers

The leftist media are claiming Joe Biden has an all-star team of experts ready to take over and vanquish the virus. In truth, they’re undermining the single thing this nation needs to resume normal life — a vaccine. They’d also bring back the dangerous Obama-era idea of making people 65 ...

Americans against unconstitutional mask mandates

Good news: The anti-mask mandate movement is gaining steam. Americans yearning to breathe free are waking up from their pandemic stupor. Common sense and constitutional principles, now more than ever, are vital to a sovereign nation’s health. On Monday, a federal judge rescinded Democratic ...

Don’t expect our elites to learn from the Los Angeles horror

The attempted assassination of two Los Angeles County deputies, caught on a security video, is chilling and enraging enough. A man walks up to the parked black-and-white cruiser, and fires point-blank through the passenger window, then runs away. The stricken officers manage to stagger ...

Prosecutors need to do their jobs

There is a destructive crime and justice trend afoot that clearly endangers public safety. No, it is not the actions of violent protestors and riotous thugs. It is the deliberate inaction of district attorneys who are refusing to prosecute violations of law. You’d likely be fired if you ...

Woodward book gives Dems no advantage

On hearing that President Trump sat for 18 interviews with Bob Woodward of The Washington Post my first reaction was “what the...” Why Woodward? There can only be two reasons. The first must have been that the president thought he could persuade the man to like him. The evidence that ...

China’s dark turn

"I’m more anti-China than you!” That’s a new theme of this election. Joe Biden says, “We will never again be at the mercy of China!” Donald Trump replies, “China would own our country if Joe Biden got elected!” It’s strange to hear competition, because just a few ...

Spiritual poverty reverses Black gains

n matters of race and other social phenomena, there is a tendency to believe that what is seen today has always been. For black people, the socioeconomic progress achieved during my lifetime, which started in 1936, exceeded anyone’s wildest dreams. In 1936, most black people lived in gross ...

Democrats playing the long con

"Con” in this context is slang for “confidence game” — an effort to deceive or defraud someone, usually out of money or property. Dictionary.com defines a “long con” this way: “an elaborate confidence game that develops in several stages over an extended period of time wherein the ...

Stop talking about doomsday scenarios for election night

All this agonizing over what may happen if President Donald Trump tries to steal the election is highly annoying. It normalizes the idea that pure aggression can so easily steamroll the democratic process. Here are healthier assumptions for those who value a fair election: If Trump loses, ...

Who Is the BLM Global Network Foundation?

With protestors taking to the streets all over the United States to protest police brutality after the killings of unarmed Black men, the phrase “Black Lives Matter” has become synonymous with the movement. Regardless of where you find yourself on the ideological spectrum, a significant ...

Why Trump could win a second term

It would be a huge mistake to write off the 2020 U.S. presidential race result as a foregone conclusion. Many did so in 2016, taking as a no-brainer that Hillary Clinton would defeat Donald Trump. Some self-deluded Clinton supporters found it so impossible to believe that Trump had won that ...

Economic recovery starts, thanks to capitalism

As Washington has been frozen in debate about whether to pass massive new economic stimulus legislation, something interesting has happened in the real world. In the real world, Americans sent a message to politicians saying they can take of themselves just fine, thank you. The Bureau of ...

Democrats can’t afford to let far left hijack the party

ast week, a mob of white protesters swarmed a white woman eating dinner in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Video of the bullies demanding that patrons raise their fists in solidarity with the movement went viral. Many pro-Trump and right-wing media personalities were quick ...

Neither fascism nor communism is coming to America

In every presidential election, like clockwork, the candidates ramp up the culture war rhetoric. It's a well-worn formula: painting your opponent as some kind of omnipotent force that will single-handedly decimate the country within four years. "Are you safe in Donald Trump's America?" ...
