From the Right / Larry Elder /

Let's examine some of the many reasons why billionaire Michael Bloomberg is wasting his money on his bid to win the Democratic nomination for president.

If Trump is 'racist' for questioning qaters' IQ, qhat is waters for questioning the intelligence of Dr. Carson?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Among the reasons Democrats and their media sympathizers offer to show President Donald Trump's alleged "racism" is that he called Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., a "low IQ individual."

At a July 2018 rally in Montana, Trump said: "She is a low I.Q. individual, Maxine Waters. I said it the other day. I mean, honestly, she's somewhere in the mid-...Read more

How crazy is Warren's health care plan?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., wants "Medicare for All," as does Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., her self-described "Democratic socialist" rival.

From the Right / Larry Elder /

President Donald Trump ignited yet another controversy when, on Twitter, he compared the Democrats' pursuit of his impeachment to a "lynching."

The Democrats' purported outrage about President Donald Trump's phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky might be taken seriously by the Republicans were it not for the Democrats' drive to oust Trump from the moment he won the presidency.

Of the numerous reasons Trump haters offer for their hatred of the President, the criticism over his withdrawal of the Iran deal is among the most difficult to follow. That these critics blame Donald Trump for Iran's recent aggressive behavior is even more bizarre.

Media Bad-Mouths the Economy Like It Did in 1992

From the Right / Larry Elder /

As it did in 1992, the anti-Republican 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 1949 ...Read more
