Supreme Court justices return to work next month following a tumultuous last session in which the majority issued some controversial rulings, most notably the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Immigration and Roosting Chickens

September 20th, 2022 4:29 PM

The saying “the chickens have come home to roost” seems to apply to the immigration policies of the Biden administration, sanctuary cities and states. Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ) have been sending hundreds of people who have illegally crossed the border into their states to Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and Delaware. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL)…

California Dream Could Become a Nightmare

September 14th, 2022 11:48 AM

“Well, they’re out there a-having fun In that warm California sun” – (1964 song by The Rivieras) California has become an example of what a state looks like when it is controlled by a single party – in this case Democrats – who are trying to impose a green energy secular religion on their people. State officials have banned the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035, but…

Is the ‘Red Wave’ Fading?

September 9th, 2022 9:44 AM

People who follow politics are familiar with the scenario. When a Republican “wave” appears likely, or a Republican presidential candidate develops a significant lead over the Democrat candidate, the media begin reporting “stories” that the wave is receding, and the Democrat is gaining ground. Television networks prefer close races because it adds to ratings. For once influential newspapers,…

She’s Winsome, But Also Tough

September 2nd, 2022 2:39 PM

Richmond, VA – The definition of winsome is “sweetly or innocently charming: winning, engaging.” The lieutenant governor of Virginia, Winsome Sears, is all of these, but she is also tough and has convictions on issues that matter to her and thinks should matter to Virginians and the nation.

Will Governor Youngkin Be Number 9?

August 30th, 2022 7:56 PM

Richmond, VA – Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has been in office only seven months and already he is listed at number five in a Washington Post story about possible 2024 GOP presidential candidates. In an interview, I asked him to respond to suggestions in some quarters that he might be well positioned to run for president in 2024.

Why Does Our Government Need So Many Guns?

August 25th, 2022 11:37 AM

“Astanding military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison. Conspiracy theories sometimes have at least a thread of truth in them, which is what makes them valid to some on the far right. One of those theories is that the federal government is not on their side. Concern has been raised in conservative circles about the hiring of…

George Soros and His Woke Prosecutors

August 8th, 2022 6:33 PM

George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist and bete noir of conservatives, has written a column for The Wall Street Journal, defending his donations to liberal prosecutors who are releasing criminals on low or no bail, resulting in their frequent commission of new crimes. Soros claims a choice between public safety and justice is a false one and that they reinforce each other.…

Humpty Dumpty and the Recession

August 4th, 2022 11:21 AM

In Washington things are rarely what they seem. It’s why Congress labels bills with names they think will be more palatable to the public rather than a name that would accurately reflect the content of the legislation. Notice how many times over the years the word “civil rights” has appeared in legislation that often has had little or nothing to do with civil rights. Now Democrats have junked…

Extreme Cases and Bad Law

July 19th, 2022 1:30 PM

Ever since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last month, pro-choice activists and their media allies have been on a campaign to influence public opinion that the decision was a mistake. They apparently believed they had discovered an ideal case when the Indianapolis Star reported that a 10-year-old rape victim who lives in Ohio had gone to Indiana for an…

Biden Whiplashes Border Patrol

July 12th, 2022 3:50 PM

Only in America, it seems, can border patrol agents be cleared of breaking any laws but still be punished, while those entering the country illegally mostly escape punishment. President Biden, then-press secretary Jen Psaki and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, all rushed to judgment when they saw a video of Texas Border Patrol agents last September herding Haitians …

Brace Yourself for the the Age of Wokeness

July 6th, 2022 6:12 PM

“And I’m proud to be an American…” (Lee Greenwood) A Gallup poll has found only 38 percent of us are “strongly proud” to be Americans, the lowest on record. Another 22 percent say they are “moderately proud.” Some pro-choice liberals have called for boycotts of future Independence Days. What is responsible for these numbers and attitudes about America?

Persistence Paid Off in Win for Life

June 29th, 2022 12:37 PM

There were times over the last 50 years when some pro-lifers felt they would never see Roe v. Wade overturned and the right to life again recognized by government. Many who never doubted didn’t live to see this day. They had marched in the cold streets of Washington, D.C., in January on Roe’s anniversary. These never-doubters included Nellie Gray, founder of the March for Life, Phyllis…
