A Law That Is Unchangeable

Does it matter how long theft has been prohibited? What about murder?

It's Time to Restore Fading Families

New Hampshire also ranked in the top four.

In 2020, 57.8% of the ...Read more

How Many Mountain Lions Are Too Many?

I saw it by accident.

I was sitting in the kitchen at my family's ranch in the high foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains -- not far from Yosemite National Park.

I got up to refill my water glass and looked out the window behind the kitchen sink. About a hundred yards away -- across an upward-sloping field of yellowed grass -- stood a ...Read more

Americans Are Leaving Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Chicago and Philadelphia

There is one competition where Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia are not beating other major locations in this country. It is in persuading people to stay there.

"I've been delivering real results in fiscally responsible ways," he said. "We...Read more

Mayorkas, Biden and Our Unsecured Border

There seems to be at least one impenetrable barrier connected to this country's southwest border. It is the one that stands between Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and an accurate assessment of what is actually happening there.

In September 2020, the last month of that fiscal year, the Border Patrol encountered 54,771 aliens ...Read more

Where Public Schools Never Beat Catholic Schools

There is one area of competition where Catholic schools always beat public schools.

It is not in track and field. It is not in football or basketball. It is in the average scores for national reading and math assessment tests.

The National Center for Education Statistics, which is a part of the U.S. Department of Education, published a ...Read more

When the 49ers -- and Bob Dylan, Neil Young and the Grateful Dead -- Played on a High School Field

When I was a freshman and sophomore in high school -- before I was old enough to drive -- every weekday after football or track practice I would take a San Francisco municipal transit bus from my high school in the Sunset District to the corner of Haight and Stanyan streets.

That corner was the closest bus stop to St. Mary's Hospital, where ...Read more

Biden Declares All 'Endowed by Their Creator' With Right to Life -- And Abortion Must Be Legal

President Joe Biden seemed a little confused when he gave a speech at a church in South Carolina on Sunday.

First, he mistook the Declaration of Independence for the Constitution.

"The Bible teaches that we shall know the truth, and the truth shall set us free," Biden said, according to a White House transcript of his remarks. "Well, I think...Read more

Federal Civilian Employees in Kentucky Outnumber Border Patrol at US-Mexico Border

When John Modlin, the chief patrol agent for the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector, testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability on Feb. 7, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) asked him a straightforward question.
