Objectivity, like Elvis, long ago left the building in Washington and so the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is being read and interpreted through mostly biased eyes.
Democrats, who had counted on Mueller to prove that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, were initially as crestfallen as they were on election night 2016. Still, ...Read more
For the last 27 years, Democrats have been trying to win over evangelical Christians who last voted in large numbers for their party's presidential candidate, Jimmy Carter, in 1976.
Why does it seems like the political equivalent of a Mafia hit job on Joe Biden, who is being whacked before a much-anticipated announcement of his presidential plans?
Most people who pay attention to such things have seen Biden's hands-on approach when it comes to women. Not until the last few days when two women have come forward to accuse ...Read more
The flood tide of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border cannot and must not continue. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has said of it, "The system is broken and overwhelmed. It is a national emergency."
The definition of emergency might help focus attention:

The first condemnation is for the act itself. The callous slaughter of people at prayer is part of an age that has devalued life, from...Read more
President Harry Truman once said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog." That truism can now be applied to baseball players, notably Bryce Harper.
Harper, a former Washington National and now new member of their National League East rival, the Philadelphia Phillies, recently completed ...Read more
Here's a sentence I never thought I would write: Dianne Feinstein was right.
A small group of middle- and high-school children from the San Francisco Bay area visited the Democratic senator from California last week to demand she support the "Green New Deal," a collection of environmental policies even some Democrats find too extreme, too ...Read more
PALM BEACH, Florida -- While most attention has been focused on immigrants trying to enter the United States over America's southern border, there is legal migration taking place that has been largely ignored, though it may have at least as much economic and political impact as the other.

"There are none so blind as those who will not see."
One might think that after denying the evidence of Adolf Hitler's rise and objectives that resulted in World War II, Europeans might be more attuned to modern threats.

Here is the problem for Trump critics. They began with the wrong premise. They believed that Hillary Clinton should have won the 2016 presidential election. Then they deluded themselves by embracing the notion that Trump was illegitimate, unstable, stupid and an offense to everything they consider normal.
This led the Obama holdovers in the ...Read more
