Church attendance is essential to America's greatness

From the Right / Star Parker /

President Donald Trump stepped up to declare houses of worship "essential places that provide essential services" to the American people.

"The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important, essential places of faith to open right now for this weekend," he said.

The president raised eyebrows by declaring that he will "...Read more

'Do Americans want government or freedom?' is the question pointing to November

From the Right / Star Parker /

With the House passage of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's $3 trillion Heroes Act, COVID-19 policy has now officially transformed into presidential politics 2020.

Let's recall that prior to the crisis, the nation appeared quite pleased with the leadership that President Donald Trump was providing.

The economy was growing at a brisk pace, with job ...Read more

We've made a big mistake in dealing with a cash flow crisis by introducing massive new debt

From the Right / Star Parker /

I'm pleased to read that Republican leaders in the White House and on Capitol Hill want to take a pause before enacting more coronavirus stimulus spending.

Thinking about the coronavirus debt that my grandchildren will have to endure is already starting to keep me up at night.

But what really had me in cold sweats was when I found myself ...Read more

Personal retirement accounts will help in next crisis

From the Right / Star Parker /

Congress passed and President Donald Trump signed into law the CARES Act to provide emergency measures to help us get through the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 shutdown.

A crucial objective was to provide funds to the many individuals who suddenly found themselves cash-strapped and unable to pay bills because, through no fault of their...Read more

Lessons we must learn from COVID-19

From the Right / Star Parker /

We're seeing now what efforts against COVID-19 were supposed to produce: a flattening of the growth curve of new fatalities. The growth rate of fatalities is dropping.

We entered the dark tunnel, and now we are on the way out. Rays of light are shining in.

We will survive. But will we learn?

It appears that the initial estimates of the scope ...Read more

One-size-fits-all policy doesn't work in battling this health crisis

From the Right / Star Parker /

At this writing, the number of deaths from COVID-19 in the U.S. is 42,425.

This is just a little higher than the number of deaths in the U.S. each year from auto accidents.

It's no mystery how to reduce those 40,000 auto accident deaths to zero. Simply prohibit driving.

How many Americans would agree to this?

Not many. Most Americans prefer ...Read more

Free people take responsibility and solve problems

From the Right / Star Parker /

Several months ago, before anyone imagined the current crisis, I read a book called "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl.

Frankl was a Jewish Viennese psychiatrist who was captured by the Nazis during World War II and managed to survive four concentration camps including the infamous Auschwitz and Dachau.

He went through the ordeal ...Read more

Democrats blackmail a nation in crisis

From the Right / Star Parker /

I quoted Maj. Gen. George S. Patton in my column last week: "A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week."

I'm repeating it because it is so relevant to the coronavirus crisis.

No one thinks the stimulus bill the Senate is trying to pass, which Democrats have sabotaged, is a perfect plan. There is ...Read more

Staying free and faithful in a pandemic

From the Right / Star Parker /

The coronavirus crisis presents challenges to us as a nation and as individuals. There are principles we should keep in mind.

Let's remember how our nation works. We have a Constitution that assigns limited, defined powers to the federal government and leaves the rest to the states and individuals.

Some governors, like J.B. Pritzker of ...Read more

The rhetoric of evil black liberals aims to keep the culture of the welfare plantation

From the Right / Star Parker /

I was proud recently when Marc Little, chairman of my organization, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, stood behind President Donald Trump at a White House event for Black History Month and prayed for him.

Then a parade of black liberals did their thing in the media to try to deflate and devalue this important event. Their actions help...Read more

Democratic establishment tries to bail out Biden

From the Right / Star Parker /

South Carolina Democratic voters have revived Joe Biden's candidacy.

Maybe I should say that South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn has.

According to exit polls, 61% said Clyburn's endorsement of Biden was an "important factor" in their decision, and 27% said it was "the most important factor."

Clyburn explained Biden is his friend and has ...Read more
