Making Sense by Michael Reagan
I don’t know how long I’ll be able to take the Tokyo Olympics.
The Games are barely underway, but I’m already turned off by the annoying political grandstanding.
On Wednesday, our cocky women’s soccer team took a knee just before the start of their match against Sweden. So ...Read more
Since I’m spending this week vacationing with my family in Newport Beach, I thought I’d talk to my son Cameron and let him do a little ranting.
Cameron is 43. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two little girls, ages 3 and 5.
His wife works full-time as a home loan processor and he has one of the toughest jobs in the world – ...Read more
“Tony and Joe.”
“Tony and Joe who?”
“We’re with the government and we’re here to help.”
“Get off my property! My father said those were the nine most terrifying words in the English language.”
“Come on, man! Open your damn front door.”
“OK. But first take off your ...Read more
When hammer-thrower Gwen Berry turned her back on the American flag at the Olympic Trials last weekend, it made me think of Sergeant William Carney.
Berry probably doesn’t know who Carney was.
Neither, I bet, do the Black Lives Matter activists who spent last summer blindly tearing down statues of historical figures to protest the racist...Read more
On Wednesday, did I hear the president of the United States say Americans need to get F-15s and nukes if we really want to keep the government in line?
I did hear it.
Biden apparently was trying to make fun of us “gun nuts” who say Americans need the protections of the Second Amendment to own firearms in case we have to prevent the ...Read more
I think I can still hear them partying in the Kremlin.
Vladimir Putin and his inner circle are toasting each other with shots of vodka and loud singing.
I can’t understand Russian, but I recognize the tune - “Happy Days Are Here Again.”
After the thrashing Putin gave to President Joe Biden at their “summit” meeting in ...Read more
President Biden is taking his first trip overseas as President.
After stopping in England he’ll summit with European leaders in Brussels and then move on to his mano-a-mano meet-up with Vladimir Putin in Geneva.
I pray to God he does a great job, but I worry Putin will eat Joe alive.
Historically, left-wing dictatorships like Russia, ...Read more
Sunday is D-Day plus 76 years. And on Memorial Day this week we honored and mourned all the men and women who've died while serving in our military.
So maybe it’s a good time for politicians and pundits from both sides of the aisle to quit pointing fingers at each other for a day and start thinking about what marking the date June 6, 1944 ...Read more
Facebook decided this week it’s no longer “misinformation” to wonder whether COVID-19 was manmade by Chinese scientists in a biolab in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
But it’s not just Facebook. The national media and President Biden have just done a similar 180.
On Wednesday, the same guy who had ordered the shutting down of the ...Read more
China is claiming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “full of lies and disinformation.”
That’s not necessarily untrue most of the time.
But in this case Pelosi is being blasted by Communist China’s loudest mouthpieces because she’s actually done the right thing – almost.
To protest China’s long list of serious human rights ...Read more
Most of the country has seen video of the tragic death of Ma’Khia Bryant.
She’s the 16-year-old girl from Columbus, Ohio, who was shot four times on April 20 by a police officer as she was about to stab another young woman with a kitchen knife.
Many people blame the cop for Ma’Khia’s death.
Many people blame Ma’Khia’s ...Read more
Decades ago my sister Maureen often used to call the Republican Party “The Stupid Party.”
Today, the Party of Lincoln - the Party of Reagan - is again proving her right.
Instead of concentrating on retaking the House next year and regaining control of the Senate, the GOP is looking backwards and engaging in intra-party squabbles.
It’s been a rough week for conservatives, Republicans and all Americans.
The torture started Sunday evening with the Academy Awards ceremony, which sounded like it was produced by the AOC/Stacey Abrams wing of the Democrat Party.
I say “sounded,” because I didn’t actually waste three hours of my life watching Hollywood millionaires...Read more

So let me get this straight.
According to the president, according to the Democrats, and according to the liberal media, half my country is racist, my political party is racist and I’m a racist.
That’s the message they’ve all been telling me in the wake of the guilty verdict in the trial of Derek ...Read more
My wife, daughter and I usually drive over to Las Vegas two or three times a year.
We don’t go to gamble. We go for three things - the concerts, the dinners and the pools.
Concerts and most of the shows have yet to return in full force.
But otherwise, as we saw last week, Las Vegas has completely reopened.
Masks are still mandatory...Read more
Will someone please lend President Biden a history book?
He thinks Georgia’s new voting integrity law is “Jim Crow on steroids.”
And Georgia’s pretend ex-governor Stacey Abrams says it’s “Jim Crow redux in a suit and tie.”
Come on, you guys. You’ve been watching too much CNN and MSNBC.
The crimes against ...Read more
The Pandemic of 2020 was a tragedy for the whole world.
But our all-out war against the coronavirus taught Americans a bunch of important lessons.
It proved that our political system in Washington is a partisan train wreck.
It proved that you can’t teach kids by Zoom as well as you can in person.
It proved that the CDC doesn’t ...Read more
