Everyone should be outraged at Democrats and Republicans for the damage they've done to the country during the last year.
But right now, as the country is split into two angry red and blue camps, everyone should be even madder at the way President Trump and President-elect Joe Biden have been behaving.
As the two leaders of a nation of 331 ...Read more
Wednesday was a sad day for America.
We watched the mob violence and lawlessness in Washington with a tear in our eye.
We saw images of the Capitol stormed by hundreds of yahoos who fought with police, broke windows and forced the evacuation of a session of the U.S. Congress. At least four died in the chaos.
Wednesday was also a very sad day ...Read more
What a difference a terrible year makes.
Last year at this time, my wife, Colleen the travel agent, and I were getting ready to take 40 of her clients on a 15-day cruise out of Dubai to India and back.
This year, thanks to the COVID-19 virus and the strict lockdowns imposed to fight it, the world's travel industry barely exists and Colleen and...Read more
Christmas in California has effectively been cancelled by Emperor Gavin Newsom.
And now it looks like here in L.A. we're going to be locked in our basements by the local yahoos in charge until February.
But the continuing destruction of normal social and economic life in California in the name of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic is old news.
I thought I was going to escape the madness of the L.A. Lockdown.
I thought if I rented a small weekend getaway house in a rural part of the state two hours north, my family and I could eat outdoors at a restaurant again, or at least leave our basement without a note from our tyrannical governor.
But I thought wrong.
I didn't count on Gavin ...Read more
Editor's note: The first version of Michael Reagan's column sent Friday morning was truncated. This is the full version. We regret the error.
Teed Off in Los Angeles
The state of California has felt like a minimum-security prison for eight months.
In the name of fighting the pandemic and preventing our hospitals from being overwhelmed byCOVID...Read more
Californians have suffered greatly in our crazy war against the China virus.
Our economy is a wreck. Restaurants are dying off by the hundreds. Schools are half closed. Disneyland is a ghost town.
And now things here have gotten worse.
Because cases of new positive infections and hospitalizations have jumped lately, Gov. Gavin Newsom has ...Read more
Our politicians and leaders still don’t get it.
They don’t seem to understand – or care – that China has already declared World War III.
The Communist Party thugs who rule China with a heavy hand didn’t have to invade Japan or drop an A-bomb on anybody.
They just had to drop a deadly virus on the world.
The coronavirus, COVID-19, ...Read more
It’s crazy political times like these that I long for how quickly, simply and peacefully the 1980 presidential election ended.
That was the year President Jimmy Carter called my father at 5 in the afternoon of Election Day – while he was in the shower – and congratulated him on winning the presidency.
Votes were still being counted and ...Read more
It doesn’t matter who wins on Tuesday, America is in for big trouble.
If it’s Joe Biden, the Democrat Party’s street gangs will celebrate by rioting in the streets.
If Donald Trump wins re-election, Biden’s supporters will be so enraged they’ll riot, loot and burn everything they can – and the liberal media will say they had every ...Read more
Listen before you speak.
My mother Jane Wyman taught me that sensible lesson a long, long time ago.
And based on his fine performance at the second presidential debate on Thursday night, it looks like Donald Trump has finally learned that important lesson, too.
The president proved he could listen to what Joe Biden said and then carefully ...Read more
Watching the Senate confirmation hearing of Amy Coney Barrett reminded me of the promise my father made to my sister Maureen to put the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court.
It’s a great piece of POTUS-SCOTUS history I haven’t told in many years.
Democrats and the media said a lot of nice things this week about the late Justice Ruth Bader...Read more
The Kamala Harris-Mike Pence death match will go down in history as another forgettable vice presidential debate, but it had its pluses.
It showed us two important things we already knew.
It showed us that Vice President Pence is a smart, sober and able defender of Donald Trump and his record at home and overseas.
And it showed us that Sen. ...Read more
President Trump was his own worst enemy at Tuesday night’s big debate.
As we’ve said here a dozen times, he still hasn’t learned when to shut up.
He stepped on his own message dozens of times and interrupted Joe Biden so often and so quickly that Old Joe never had the chance to hang himself with his damning or garbled answers.
We didn��...Read more
It didn’t matter what the findings of the Breonna Taylor grand jury were going to be.
Black Lives Matters and their sympathizers were well prepared to riot on Wednesday night in Louisville and other cities, like New York and Washington.
The video of that rented U-Haul filled with big signs and who-knows-what-else is all the proof you need ...Read more
