As Election Approaches, Policy and Party as Important as Personalities

From the Right / Star Parker /

Although the focus in the upcoming elections is on the presidential candidates, it's worth keeping in mind that of at least equal importance is which party has the controlling hand on policy in Washington.

Because the country is becoming increasingly polarized, which party controls will lead in dramatically different directions. This has ...Read more

Fix Social Security With Ownership, Not More Government

From the Right / Star Parker /

The trustees for Social Security have just issued their annual report. And, as we have learned annually over recent years, the system cannot meet its obligations.

According to this latest report, the Social Security system will not be able to meet its obligations to retirees by 2035. In 2035, the system will be adequate to meet just 83% of ...Read more

Add Sen. Tom Cotton to VP Shortlist

From the Right / Star Parker /

Headlines are now filled with names reported to be on Donald Trump's "shortlist" of possible VP candidates.

These individuals, some of whom I know, indeed have serious qualifications and experience and are appropriate to be considered for the No. 2 position in the executive branch of the nation's government.

This vetting process is, as they ...Read more

No, Demonstrations Today Not Like the 1960s

From the Right / Star Parker /

The current demonstrations on college campuses against Israel remind some of the unrest on college campuses during the 1960s.

But the comparison is not a good one.

The unrest of the 1960s was defined by the war in Vietnam and by the Civil Rights Movement. Both had practical, personal impact on young Americans in their own country.

American ...Read more

Mike Johnson Is a Hero

From the Right / Star Parker /

Author Herman Wouk captured well how to understand heroism.

"Heroes are not supermen; they are good men who embody -- by the cast of destiny -- the virtue of their whole people in a great hour," observed Wouk.

We have today an American hero in the name of House Speaker Mike Johnson.

Anyone with eyes open knows the world today is a very ...Read more

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

Why Do Americans, UN Support Hamas Terrorists?

From the Right / Star Parker /

Most recent Gallup polling in March shows that 36% of Americans "approve of Israeli military action in Gaza" and 50% disapprove.

Last November, a month after the Hamas terrorist attack in Israel that claimed the lives of more than 1,200 innocent Israeli civilians, 55% approved of the military action that Israel initiated.

What has happened ...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."

But according to the latest Gallup World Happiness Report, Americans' success in the "pursuit of happiness" is diminishing. ...Read more

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
