Red Lobster Hillary Cabal Targets Tucker Carlson


I had a great dinner at a local Red Lobster the other night. The crab cakes were excellent, the staff and service friendly and terrific. But alas that was my last meal at the Red Lobster. The Red Lobster, which I thought was in the business of selling seafood dinners and lunches, is in another […]

The Middle Way: Bringing Sense to Our Polarized Positions


One unremarked side effect of the uproar that goes by the name of Donald Trump is the hardening everywhere of hearts and positions. Everything’s got to be one way or another! — border wall or shutdown, impeachment or public demoralization, allies or enemies, war or peace. War: That puts on our plates, or should, the […]

Democrats’ Big Lie on the Border Wall — Yet They’re Winning


Despite the fact that President Trump has fired almost every big gun he has, his battle with congressional Democrats over funding the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border has been stalemated.

In the wake of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez telling Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes that she wants a 70 percent income tax on the superrich, Democratic presidential aspirants outdo one another in endorsing a rate hike. “There was a time in this country where the top marginal tax rate was over 90 percent,” presidential hopeful Julian […]

In the latest revelation about Donald Wuerl — that, contrary to his claims of ignorance, he knew about McCarrick’s misconduct for at least 14 years — he emerges as the amoral but self-protective bureaucrat, undone by his own pass-the-buck-style record-keeping, which gives a grimly ironic dimension to his downfall. Wuerl’s policy wasn’t one of zero […]

The Dems Who Cried ‘Wolf!’


The President whom the Left media had been challenging for three years to “act Presidential” did it during his Oval Office address to the nation on Tuesday night, and the Democrats came back ten minutes later, crying “Wolf!” in an American Gothic that even MSNBC’s Brian Williams had to pan.
