Halloween has gone from being a time for kids to dress up — and a kind of creepy and uncomfortable time for adults to dress up and drink and act like kids — to a minefield of political correctness that would require a team of Army sappers to navigate without politically incorrect explosions ending careers.

The evidence that President Trump is a racist hovers between thin gruel and nonexistent. The acceptance as fact that everyone knows he is a racist — by all the smart people on the left that are incapable of actually proving it — says a lot more about those people than Trump. Yet it has become […]
While the evil massacre of 59 people in Las Vegas was immediately politicized by those wanting more gun control legislation — despite the reality that everything the killer did was already illegal — average Americans continued to shine in the crisis. Just as Americans did in killer hurricanes in Texas and Florida. Just as we always […]
It happens. Every…single…time. Another mass shooting, another mass effort by Democrats to squeeze out some political gain. In these circumstances, this is beyond the pale of normal ugly politics. It’s vicious, cold-hearted, self-centered, void of common decency, almost a sickness in part because of the rapidity of the response. Literally within hours of a psychopath […]
NFL football is the most popular American sport, so popular that only two days separate the end of one weekend on Monday Night Football and the beginning of the next on Thursday Night Football. The extension from formerly just a Sunday afternoon sport has meant the National Football League has become a giant money machine […]
I appeared on an ABC Channel 7 panel on another failure of Obamacare repeal, Trump and Russia and the North Koreans.

I’ll make this quick and easy. The mainstream media is not trusted by a large part of the country because they have an entrenched liberal worldview bias they refuse to acknowledge or make any attempts to ameliorate. The mainstream media is hated by an also large part of the country because of the sharply different ways it covers Republicans and […]
The United States continues to prove why it is simply the best nation in the world by virtually every measurement. The latest example is the extraordinary resilience of Americans in Texas and Florida after devastating hurricanes within weeks of each other. After the Houston region’s long deluge and record flooding from Hurricane Harvey, that area’s […]
Fall’s arrival brings students — America’s future — streaming into the hallowed halls of higher education. For those of you directly engaged in funding one of these institutions, much of your thought is focused on classes, dorms, books, computers, software and trying to remove that stunned look from your face brought about by today’s tuition […]
The New York Times represents a special case in the spiraling loss of credibility among the American mainstream media. For generations now, it has been the dominant newspaper in America; the most well-known and the most influential. It’s motto is “All the news that’s fit to print.” But it also has been a leader in […]
The Revolutionary Act clears up the clouds of media confusion over who the alt-right is and who Antifa is on the ABC panel. I explain how neither have anything to do with the Right in America.
It’s a story as old as civilizations passing away, history looping without end… First they came for the Confederate monuments, because they represented those who fought to maintain slavery. Then they came for Confederate flags, because banning them would alleviate the hurt of slavery they represented. Then they came for Confederate names on buildings, on […]
This was all so obviously inevitable, the predictable result of divisive identity politics perpetrated on the American people — the exact opposite of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Unfortunately, it won’t end in Charlottesville. The alt right and white supremacists, the Antifa and BLM groups — none of whom represent the best […]
During the past seven years, we’ve endured the worst U.S. economic recovery in the known history of recoveries. This is a plain and indisputable fact by the measurements of all economic recoveries. The worst ever. Did this have something to do with President Barack Obama’s policies? Of course it did. It was no coincidence that […]
Former President Bill Clinton in a press conference given on October 21st, 1994 stated the world is a safer place based on the “good deal” with North Korea, preventing it from obtaining nuclear weapons. On October 9, 2006, North Korea announced that it had successfully conducted its first nuclear test. Appeasing a genocidal madman, allowing him […]
