The Collusionists Are Dead

 

The latest raft of Special Counsel indictments foreshadows the last asphyxiated gasp of the collusion hoax. Before Robert Mueller’s cabal of Clinton allied prosecutorial hatchet men began channeling their inner Lavrentiy Beria (“show me the [president] and I’ll show you the [high crimes and misdemeanors]”), the FBI had been investigating Trump, unwittingly at the behest […]

Toxic Liberalism Created Nikolas Cruz

 

After watching the horrific events unfold last week at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — and seeing that it was a former student, a young man named Nikolas Cruz, who perpetrated the massacre — can anyone honestly argue that Western civilization is not in decline? Nikolas Cruz, age 19, was a […]

The Time for Civilians to Own AR-15s Is Over

 

Monday Presidents’ Day. I keep thinking that when I was a lad growing up in Silver Spring, Maryland, just across the Potomac, in Virginia, they also got to celebrate January 19, or the closest Monday day to it, as Robert E. Lee’s Birthday. They got school off, which seemed like a great deal. It’s hard […]

Professor Amy Wax and the Brownshirts on Campus

 

Washington Recently a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School in league with a professor at the University of San Diego Law School made bold to write an essay for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Latest Trump Accusers Are Not #MeToo Women

 

The media are jumping on stories of President Donald Trump’s past dalliances with Playboy Bunny Karen McDougal and stripper Stormy Daniels. They’re linking these women to the #MeToo movement. Don’t buy it. Real #MeToo women, battling workplace harassment and domestic abuse, want to be judged by their achievements, not their bra size. They’re the opposite […]

What Robert Mueller & the Russians He Indicted Share in Common

 

The Russians interfering in the American political process and the Americans expressing the most outrage that Russians interfered in the American political process share much in common. Robert Mueller’s indictment released on Friday charges the defendants with attempting to “hide the Russian origin of their activities and to avoid detection.” One could say something very […]

Against Gun Control: The ‘I-Want-To’ Factor

 

So, in response to the Parkland, Florida shootings, the government, federal or state, strongly tightens control of firearms. And then…? No more shootings? No more Nikolas Cruzes and such like, taking out their personal malice on the innocent and unwary? I speak as a lifelong non-gun owner when I say we ought not count on […]

The Economy Is Booming

 

I did not support Donald Trump for president. I recall arguing with some of my pro-Trump Consumer Technology Association (CTA) board members in 2016 — smart business leaders who were convinced that as president, Trump would drive U.S. economic growth. I was skeptical and focused on Trump’s personal, divisive attacks. But within hours of Trump […]

Pharma Thinks It Owns Medicare

 

It’s a depressingly common aphorism in Washington policy-making circles that “pharma always wins.” This happens regardless of the merits of any particular policy — in fact, the more “pharma always wins,” the more often taxpayers and consumers lose.
