The citizens of any free country have the right to a government that works for them. For Americans, it is our birthright. Our founding documents say so explicitly.
The Declaration of Independence sets forth the principles of individual liberty and free agency that form the basis of American society. That document famously states that all humans...Read more
Excerpts from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa's forthcoming book "Peril" were just released. The book is apparently the latest effort to smear former President Donald Trump as a deranged lunatic. Alas, for the authors, that's not what's grabbed the public's attention.
Instead, it is the revelation that Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint ...Read more
One of the fascinating and inspiring things about the Bible is the light it sheds on humanity; not just the humans living at the time biblical books were written, but all humans.
Consider the Old Testament Book of Lamentations. The Jewish prophet Jeremiah has traditionally been considered the author of Lamentations, a series of long-form...Read more
The election to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom is now less than two weeks away. According to California law, Newsom will be removed from office if more than 50% of those casting ballots vote in favor of recall.

Mary McCarthy once said of fellow author Lillian Hellman, "Every word she writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the.'"
The Democratic Party gives Hellman a run for her money.
Politicians are not a terribly honest bunch generally, but Democrats -- at least those on the national stage -- have grown so accustomed to lying and getting away with it...Read more
Democrats are busy trying to ensure a victory in the 2022 elections. If public opinion plays any part (and if the elections are honest), they'll likely lose in even larger numbers than in 2020, which was bad for them, President Joe Biden's "victory" notwithstanding.
But the Democrats in power are very, very good at gaming the system; we can ...Read more
Americans have always been courageous. Whether people crossed a land bridge or an ocean to get here; whether they came by choice or because they felt they had no other options; or even if they were brought here against their will; it took fortitude and tenacity to survive. Americans fought a war for our independence from Great Britain, a war to ...Read more
Do you know how many people have come across the border illegally so far this year?
According to the U.S. Customs and Border Control, it's 1.1 million people -- and the numbers are rising every month.
According to the USCBC's website, more than 75,000 people crossed the border illegally in January. In February, that number climbed to more than...Read more
China is in the process of expanding the "social credit" system they have been rolling out in phases since 2014.
Much like what we have for our financial credit ratings, China's "social credit" system attaches a positive point value to behavior that the government views as praiseworthy (showing integrity, responsibility and/or trustworthiness) ...Read more
Chicago keeps making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Earlier this month, Chicago Public Schools announced that it would be making free condoms available in schools, beginning with children in the fifth grade. In case you're wondering (or too old to remember), fifth grade is still elementary school, and fifth graders are typically 10 or 11 ...Read more
There was a time when most Democrats would have defined themselves as "liberals." "Liberalism" used to denote an emphasis on individual liberties and civil rights. Liberals certainly believed in a strong welfare state and higher taxation to support it, but they would never have supported endless wars and the military-industrial complex that ...Read more
As the nation limps out of the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans assume that we are also leaving behind the serious -- and in some cases, shocking -- power grabs that government leaders insisted were necessary to "defeat the virus."
The headlines suggest otherwise. A number of trends have emerged, the confluence of which should concern all ...Read more
