NASA Chief criticized for mentioning Christianity in speech

Opinion 04/25/19, 21:23

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the First Amendment. Or maybe, after the spat over a speech by NASA’s Jim Bridenstine, it does. Thanks to the double standards of secularism, public officials can’t even talk about faith without making headlines. It’s no wonder, then, that when the head of America’s space ...

Beware Soros-funded hijacking of US census

Opinion 04/25/19, 04:57

“Are you a U.S. citizen?” Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy. On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the high-stakes ...

4 things to expect from Trump and Congress in the wake of the Mueller probe

Opinion 04/23/19, 21:02

Despite special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings in his final report, congressional Democrats want to continue investigating—and even consider impeaching—President Donald Trump. The Mueller report, issued last week, concluded that neither Trump nor his campaign conspired with Russian operatives in meddling with the 2016 presidential campaign. However, it left a murkier picture ...

Liberals are using Rep. Ilhan Omar as an excuse to chill speech

Opinion 04/23/19, 20:51

Democrats have spent the past two-plus years accusing the president of the United States and his allies of seditiously conspiring with our enemies to destroy “democracy.” For the most part, this fairytale has been cynically deployed by politicians to undermine the legitimacy of a Republican presidency, yet millions of Americans now ...

Why people aren’t fleeing this Central American country in caravans

Opinion 04/19/19, 20:00

In the ongoing U.S. debate about immigration, the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala are mainly in the news because many of those crossing our border from Mexico are from these nations. Why isn’t Costa Rica experiencing a similar mass exodus? I put the question to President Carlos ...

In Paris, our Cathedral lies in ruins

Opinion 04/16/19, 09:55

PARIS—Many of us Americans have strolled the banks of the river Seine across Île de la Cité, listening to the bells of the famous towers of Notre Dame.  It’s been a landmark in Paris for over 800 years, having been built in the 13th century. A center of worship and political ...

Mainstream media’s worshipping of Michael Avenatti

Opinion 04/13/19, 17:46

Remember celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, the man who represented porn star Stormy Daniels? Well, the media’s favorite guest is back in the news after being indicted on 36 charges Thursday.  Two hundred fifty-four—that’s how many times Avenatti was featured on major TV networks in one year, according to NewsBusters.  CNN alone featured Avenatti a staggering ...

The open borders agenda rears its ugly head

Opinion 04/10/19, 19:47

This week, President Donald Trump fired his homeland security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen. Nielsen was, according to media and the Democrats, a monster of the highest order. She was allegedly the force behind the caging of children (that practice began under President Barack Obama and actually ended under Trump); she was supposedly ...

4 options Trump has to address border crisis

Opinion 04/04/19, 23:34

Put yourself in the president’s shoes. He saw the border crisis building. He warned Congress. It did nothing. Now he has to do something. Months ago, the administration alerted lawmakers that the number of people entering the country illegally and making unqualified asylum claims was skyrocketing. The only options were to stop them from ...

Biggest media miss of Trump’s presidency

Opinion 03/30/19, 06:26

After over two years of speculation and endless media coverage, the Mueller report arrived with a dud. This is, without a doubt, the biggest media miss of the Trump presidency. The fact is that after nonstop allegations and insinuations that Trump was a Manchurian candidate and a puppet of the Putin regime, ...

Reagan’s strategic defense initiative has reached a new milestone

Opinion 03/29/19, 18:53

The Pentagon commemorated the 36th anniversary of President Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative in dramatic fashion on Monday by reaching a new technological milestone. The military conducted a successful test of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system against the most complex simulated threat to date.    On March 23, 1983, in that historic speech to ...

The media have done tremendous damage to the country and themselves

Opinion 03/29/19, 05:56

For the past two years, a large swath of the media engaged in a mass act of self-deception and partisan group think. Perhaps it was Watergate envy, or bitterness over Donald Trump’s victory, or antagonism toward Republicans in general—or, most likely, a little bit of all the above. But now that ...

Unanswered questions in the Jussie Smollett case

Opinion 03/28/19, 20:16

What a mess. So many questions, and so little transparency in this nutty, high-visibility case. For example, why did the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office drop the case against Jussie Smollett? Why did it agree to have the record sealed? Why didn’t it consult with the police who investigated the crimes ...

Why Democrats fear the Electoral College

Opinion 03/22/19, 10:23

The United States isn’t a “democracy.” Though every American should have learned this fact in high school civics class, the smart set still like to ridicule people who point it out—such a cliche and all. Today we see why the left has worked to convince Americans that majoritarianism is a profound ...
