POLITICS & POLICY

No one saw it coming when, on July 9, 2018, President Donald J. Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court. The Democrats and their media and left-wing activist allies would surely oppose Kavanaugh; the question was on what grounds. He had a spotless record. Kavanaugh’s former classmates at

Perhaps Mayor Pete Buttigieg would have a better shot at appealing to Christian voters if he would not go to such extreme lengths to contort Scripture to rationalize his party’s abominable stance on abortion. The Democratic presidential candidate openly expresses his Christian faith and was the first candidate to hire a national faith outreach director.

As it did in 1992, the anti-Republican, anti-President Donald Trump media is covering Trump’s economy as negatively as possible while keeping a straight face. After all, unemployment is at historical lows, most Americans feel optimistic about their own economic future, and most credit Trump with the growing economy. Trump’s predecessor was the first president since

Our age loves scientific equations. Here’s one you weren’t taught at college but which affects you as much as the law of gravity: GI – W = E Good Intentions (GI) minus Wisdom (W) leads to Evil (E). You weren’t taught this rule at college because the modern university believes only science has rules. “Rules

Recently we’ve been hearing politicians such as Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) chomping at the bit to put price controls on pharmaceutical drugs, with almost no sense of economics or history about how prices change over time. In 1926, a nice radio cost $7,175 (in 2019 dollars), and it took up more space than the giant flat screen you probably have in

If you’re a political conservative, don’t feel so picked on by the Stalinist Democratic Party. It doesn’t allow dissent among its own ranks either, being the party of the ideological straitjacket. In watching some of the clips from the Democratic climate change marathon, I was struck by how willing each candidate was to grovel and

Gentle readers, in our previous visit we discussed a police chase in Baltimore, one that was, in my view, imprudently and prematurely called off by a police commander who was worried about the potential for a traffic collision. The suspect being pursued had committed two acts of attempted murder on police officers, the first by

Of the reasons critics offered for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, the one suggested by Rep. Al Green, D-N.Y., is among the most ridiculous. Green argues that Trump’s alleged racism serves as a legitimate basis for impeachment. In July, Green announced plans to introduce articles of impeachment: “The Mueller hearing has nothing to do with what

CLEAR SPRING, Maryland — It’s 7 a.m. at the McDonald’s drive-thru just off U.S. 40, and a cheery freckle-faced server emerges from the side door to deliver an order to a car parked in a waiting area. “Heeeere’s your Egg McMuffin, young lady,” she announces with a broad smile. For the next half-hour, a flurry

On Labor Day, did you celebrate workers? More likely, you made it a day of rest. Fine. It’s good to have a choice. I didn’t have a choice about joining a union when I was hired by CBS and then ABC. They told me that if I wanted to work, I had to pay dues

So there was another shooting in Texas. At last count, including the perpetrator, there are seven dead and around 20 injured. We don’t really know anything much about the perpetrator except that he’s been identified as white. Apparently, what prompted the shooting was the perpetrator was stopped by the police, shot his way out, and

Batten down the hatches! Yet another tsunami of global warming and “clean energy” propaganda is approaching! On September 23, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit at UN headquarters. Guterres is calling on all leaders to come to New York City with “concrete, realistic plans” to increase their greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction pledges “in

Why does most of Africa stay poor while other parts of the world prosper? People blame things like climate, the history of colonialism, racism, etc. But I say Senegalese businesswoman Magatte Wade gives the right explanation: too many rules. “Once you hire someone, good luck getting rid of them for any reason,” Wade complains. Her
