Trump Is Right -- More Violence, Turmoil Under Biden

From the Right / Star Parker /

Former President Donald Trump's statement that the attack on Israel by Iran "would not have happened if we were in office," has drawn derision, including from his former National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Bolton called the remark "delusional," saying that Trump "has no idea what to do in the Middle East in this situation."

If Trump is ...Read more

Americans Are Not Seeking Out Middle Ground

From the Right / Star Parker /

A Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Sen. Mitt Romney regarding the demise of the No Labels political party initiative tells us as much about Romney, and why he failed to ever become a national leader, as it does about the failure of the No Labels effort.

No Labels defined its mission "to support centrism and bipartisanship."

Romney ...Read more

Recapturing Our Lost and Disillusioned Youth

From the Right / Star Parker /

Our nation's Declaration of Independence begins with the famous statement that "all men ... are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Abortion Is a Winning Issue for Republicans

From the Right / Star Parker /

The visit by Vice President Kamala Harris to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in St. Paul, the first ever visit by a president or vice president to an abortion clinic, is getting the considerable attention it deserves.

When America's vice president visits and pays homage to the nation's largest abortion provider, it's news. And what she ...Read more

This Is Not the Soviet Union, Mr. Biden

From the Right / Star Parker /

In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed.

It marked the end of an experiment that lasted almost a century testing the premise that godless secularization, turning control of people's lives over to other people to rule them, who decide what others need and how they should live and conduct their lives, is the answer for mankind.

In the free world, ...Read more

Clarence Thomas, Liberal Racism and the Ongoing Denigration of Black Conservatives

From the Right / Star Parker /

President Joe Biden stirred up controversy during the last presidential campaign, when, in an interview with a Black radio host, he said, "If you have a problem figuring out if you're for me or Trump, you ain't Black."

Biden got pushback on this, but he captured a pretty common view among liberals.

That is, that liberalism is genetically ...Read more

Too Many Corporations, Like Universities, Have Lost Their Way

From the Right / Star Parker /

Universities are not alone among our institutions that have lost their way. How about America's corporations, which now seem to think social justice is their job, beside efficiently delivering goods and services to the American public?

In a recent panel discussion at the Bipartisan Policy Institute, Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan, ...Read more

From the Right / Star Parker /

Data shows that winds of political change are blowing among Black voters.

In volatile times like now, predictions can be made with only the greatest caution.

Progressive Black Pastors Misguided on War in Gaza

From the Right / Star Parker /

Some 1,000 Black pastors nationwide are reported to have weighed-in to pressure President Joe Biden to force a ceasefire in the war in Gaza.

According to one pastor, the war "has evoked the kind of deep-seated angst among Black people that I have not seen since the civil rights movement."

And per another, regarding the Palestinians, "we see ...Read more

Freedom Is Not Free

From the Right / Star Parker /

One picture worth a thousand words is a graph on the U.S. Department of Defense website showing U.S. annual Defense spending as a percentage of GDP, going back to 1953.

Two things jump out.

First, the lowest over the 70-year period was in 1999, at the end of the Clinton administration, when it stood at 2.7%. This is a little more than half ...Read more

Social Security: A Broken Socialist Dinosaur

From the Right / Star Parker /

It seems many still harbor, or want to perpetuate, the illusion that our Social Security system is not in trouble.

Let me quote here from a press release from the Social Security Administration released March 31, 2023:

"The Social Security Board of Trustees today released its annual report on the financial status of the Social Security Trust...Read more
