The Media Officially Becomes the Communications Department for Biden

October 23rd, 2020 1:23 PM

This week, the New York Post published a bombshell story. Hunter Biden's laptop was apparently given to a computer repairman in Delaware, and a copy of the hard drive was turned over to the Post. The Post found several alarming emails. The first was a communique from a Ukrainian businessman from the natural gas company Burisma — the same company from which Hunter Biden would…

Disgusting Professorial Teachings

October 23rd, 2020 12:32 PM

The ugliness that we have recently witnessed including rioting, billions of dollars of property destruction, assaults, murders and grossly stupid claims about our nation has its origins on college campuses. Two websites, College Reform and College Fix, report on the despicable teachings on college campuses across the nation. Let us look at some of it.

Cal Thomas Column: Can Joe Biden Be Trusted?

October 20th, 2020 11:35 PM

Can Joe Biden be trusted? It was President Richard Nixon who said in the midst of the enveloping Watergate scandal: “People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I earned everything I've got.” That standard should be applied to Joe Biden before the election. He should be pressed to explain his son Hunter's financial dealings in Ukraine and Beijing…

John Stossel Column: A Tale of Two Camps

October 17th, 2020 11:22 PM

When COVID-19 hit, I quarantined in Eastern Massachusetts. Biking around the woods, I noticed something strange. There are two campgrounds near my house. One is full. Lots of people pitch tents or park trailers at a place called Maurice's. A short bike ride away is a much bigger campground that's almost entirely empty. Why? It's the topic of my new video. The empty campground is run…

Why Democrats Hate Amy Coney Barrett

October 17th, 2020 5:29 PM

This week, Democrats struggled to explain why Judge Amy Coney Barrett should not be confirmed to serve on the Supreme Court. They trotted out hackneyed arguments, suggesting that some political norm had been broken by a Republican president nominating a judge to be confirmed as a justice by a Republican Senate in an election year. There have been 19 times where a seat became vacant in an…

Walter Williams Column: Racial Deception

October 17th, 2020 4:44 PM

During slavery, many black women, often in a forcible union with a white man, bore mixed-race children. Based on their percentage of white blood, they were deemed "mulattos," "quadroons," "octoroons" or even "hexadecaroons." Depending on skin color, they could pass as white and avoid the gross racial discrimination suffered by their darker skinned brothers and sisters. This was portrayed in a…

Progressive Trick Is No Treat

October 13th, 2020 11:08 PM

Halloween, like so much else, will be different this year from previous years, but it also offers an analogy that can be applied to the current presidential campaign. The purpose of Halloween masks is to hide the identity of the person wearing them. They are also supposed to be scary. Inversely, as I see it, the purpose of the "masks" being worn by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is to soothe…

The Fight for Free Speech

October 7th, 2020 8:43 PM

The violence, looting and mayhem that this nation has seen over the last several months has much of its roots in academia, where leftist faculty teach immature young people all manner of nonsense that contradicts commonsense and the principles of liberty. Chief among their lessons is a need to attack free speech in the form of prohibitions against so-called hate speech and microaggressions.…

Supreme Court and Rules of the Game

September 30th, 2020 3:51 PM

The United States Constitution's Article 2, Sec. 2, cl. 2, provides that the president of the United States "shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States." President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett as U.S. Supreme Court…

Alaska’s Governor on the Virus and the Election

September 25th, 2020 8:08 PM

ANCHORAGE — From the moment Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican, was made aware of the threat of COVID-19, he acted faster than most other states and the federal government. In an interview, I asked him why he moved so quickly when others did not? “We got a call from the (U.S.) State Department in January asking for assistance with a charter (plane) that was coming out of Wuhan with State…

Bad Policies Fuel Fires

September 25th, 2020 12:04 AM

"Mother Earth is angry!" says Nancy Pelosi in my newest video. "The debate is over around climate change!" says California Governor Gavin Newsom, smirking, strangely. They're eager to blame climate change for the wildfires in their state. I'm surprised they didn't say it causes COVID-19, too. Newsom, ridiculously, says wildfires are another reason to get more electric cars on the road. I…

Democrats Threaten to Burn Down the Republic to Stack Supreme Court

September 24th, 2020 9:12 PM

Last week, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at the age of 87. Her death immediately initiated a political firestorm in Washington, D.C. -- one that threatens the very integrity of the republic. That's not because, as the media and Democrats would claim, some sort of institutional norm has been violated by a Republican president selecting a replacement for Ginsburg to be voted on…

Williams Column: Language and Thought

September 24th, 2020 12:48 AM

Seventeenth-century poet and intellect John Milton predicted, "When language in common use in any country becomes irregular and depraved, it is followed by their ruin and degradation." Gore Vidal, his 20th-century intellectual successor, elaborated saying: "As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate." Sloppy language permits…

Media Mislabel Joe Biden’s Ideology

September 22nd, 2020 8:10 PM

Democratic presidents have become steadily more progressive since Jimmy Carter. That's because Democratic voters have shifted to the left over the last 30 years, in a trend that has accelerated over the last five years, according to surveys. Yet, Democratic candidates like Joe Biden are erroneously depicted as moderate by "conservatives" who work for progressive newspapers and call for defeat…
