It’s a Miracle

 

The election of Donald Trump to be president of the United States is viewed by many as a modern political miracle (or, if you’re Hillary Clinton or her fans, a curse). But if you want to find the true political wonder of recent years, the electoral equivalent of feeding thousands from two fish, I offer […]

GOP Should Help Dreamers (But Not This Week)

 

I get it all the time: “What part of illegal don’t you understand? They have to go!” It’s a predictable reaction from a passionate minority of my audience when discussing how the United States should deal with the issue of illegal immigration, and particularly with those illegal (or “undocumented” if you are from a politically […]

Reflections on a Chaotic Week

 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last several days, you know what happened: On Thursday, President Trump reportedly called the entire continent of Africa, and perhaps a few nearer places, “s***hole countries.” After the “mainstream media” gave the comments more non-stop coverage than any event since Trump won the 2016 election with […]

Jeff Sessions Goes to Pot on Marijuana Policy

 

In 2017 it seems particularly difficult to name a public policy issue on which a majority of Republicans agree with a majority of Democrats. But a Gallup poll taken in October shows 64 percent of Americans, including a slight majority of Republicans, two-thirds of independent voters, and nearly three-quarters of Democrats answering “yes” to the […]

A President of Consequence

 

Last week I received an email from one of my radio show listeners saying “I voted for President Trump but if I had it to do over again, I wouldn’t.” I responded, “I’m in exactly the opposite position: I didn’t vote for Donald Trump but if I could do it over again, given what I […]

Hold the Bell Pepper

 

I think we’ve all had that moment, that moment of disappointment and the near-shedding of a single tear, that comes when you open your Chinese take-out only to find bell pepper in your kung pao chicken. It is believed (by me, at least) that Genghis Khan had his first imperial chef (and the chef’s wife, […]

Two Kinds of Trump Supporters

 

When filling in for Joe Pags on his eponymous nationally-syndicated radio show on Monday, I thought my analysis of the president’s comments two days earlier following the Charlottesville riots and the death of Heather Heyer was “fair and balanced”: The president didn’t say anything factually wrong but his not specifically calling out Nazis and the […]

McCain’s Revenge

 

Senator John McCain waited two years to get his revenge against Donald Trump for saying that McCain is not a war hero. But with a giant middle finger — or more precisely a thumb — McCain, perhaps assuming that he’ll never run for election again, showed Donald Trump that repealing and replacing Obamacare would not […]

The Environmentalists’ Human Shields

 

Who does this describe? If they win, it will mean worse lives for the living, and death for many. They’re willing to lie about their goals and demonize those who disagree with them. And they employ the detestable practice of using human shields to further their cult-like ambition to impose their will on non-believers. That’s […]

Comey’s First Soft Shoe Drops

 

For weeks now, Americans have had a good picture of the dynamic between President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey. The prepared “Statement for the Record” released by Comey on Wednesday prior to his Thursday morning testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee (scheduled for 10 AM Eastern Time for two hours in public […]
