Trump Politicized Mother’s Day

 

It seems our society has long passed the point where politics can be kept in its separate sphere. Everything from schools, to sports, to movies and television, to science to even Miss USA Pageants have become politicized. Still, it was unfortunate to see President Trump do the same with Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day should be […]

Coca Cola Supports Terrorists?

 

Via Kyle Smith at National Review, I’ve learned that the Puerto Rican Day Parade on June 11 in New York City will be honoring unrepentant terrorist leader Oscar López Rivera, and that Coca-Cola is one of the sponsors of this parade. López Rivera, a leader of the Puerto Rican Marxist terrorist group FALN, will be […]

Moonbeams, Unicorns, and Voluntary Taxes

 

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D-Havana) demonstrates once again why the political left’s feeble grasp on reality is seldom more tenuous than when it comes to taxes. Regarding criticism of California’s new $52 billion tax hike, Brown said, “The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them. They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and […]

Bethune-Cookman University Ingrates

 

On Wednesday students at the largely black Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Fla., interrupted a speech by U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Some heckled her, while others turned their back. She was supposed to speak for an hour but left after 20 minutes. This is not the first time DeVos has received a rude reception. […]

The Pocahontas “Insult”: Why Trump Should Keep Using It

 

In late April, President Trump again fired the barb of “Pocahontas” at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Soviet Union). Despite the claims of many in the media that it is “obvious racism,” Trump should keep using it. For starters, Warren has earned it. She is arguably somewhat nicer that Hillary Clinton but just as deceitful and opportunistic. […]

Health Care Is Not A Right, Part 2

 

In the first post in this series I criticized the notion that single-payer health care protects people with pre-existing conditions. That a prominent Republican like Ben Stein espoused single-payer was dismaying. During Mr. Stein’s appearance on Neil Cavuto’s show, he said: “It is a basic American right to have decent health care. That is a basic right. We […]

Ben Stein Is So Wrong About Health Care It’s Hard To Know Where To Begin — Part 1

 

Ben Stein appeared on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” Wednesday to discuss late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s touching monologue that included ill-informed statements about health care. Instead of trying to correct Kimmel’s assertions, though, Stein just added to the confusion. Regarding the future of our health care system, Stein said, “At the end of […]

If GOP Loses on Health Care, Moderates Are Culpable

 

If Republican efforts at health care reform fail this time, moderate Republicans of the Tuesday Group will bear the blame. This will no doubt come as a surprise to many, in large part because the blame for the failure in March was laid solely at the doorstep of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. The mainstream […]

On Energy, Trump Should Ignore Bloomberg

 

Some people continue to believe that we have a future filled with unicorns. Others persist in the belief that efficient renewable energy is just over the horizon. Joe Ryan of Bloomberg advanced that belief (energy, not unicorns) recently in an article that claimed despite “all Donald Trump’s efforts to revive coal, market forces and some […]

Anyone Who Thinks ESPN’s Decline Isn’t Because of Its Liberal Bias Is Either In Denial, an Idiot, or Both

 

Last week all-sports cable TV channel ESPN sent out pink slips to 100 employees, many of them on-air personalities. Profits have been declining since last year in large part because of the 12 million viewers who, since 2011, have dropped their subscriptions. Yet even at this late date, there are those who insist this has […]
