March 10th, 2021 11:53 AM

Like the late Arizona Senator John McCain (R), Arizona Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema is seen as a centrist “maverick.” Yet Sinema’s recent, dramatic thumbs-down voting gesture on the minimum wage was excoriated by The New York Times, not celebrated the way McCain’s similar thumbs-down “no” vote helped preserve ObamaCare in 2017. The Times…

A Harsh President

March 21st, 2019 5:09 PM
President Trump made a rare appearance at a church last Sunday. It's a safe bet the sermon was not based on Proverbs 15:1 — “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” If it was, it didn't appear to have much effect.
