Katrina, Ten Years Later
Ten years have elapsed since one of the most amazing cases of Republican-bashing media bias in the television era began. The media elites laugh when preachers say immorality causes God to send hurricanes, but they suggested with straight faces that Hurricane Katrina was a death sentence President George W. Bush and his cronies brought to the less fortunate.
A Cowardly, un-American Deal With Iran
Many Americans rightly watch in disbelief as leaders of our country push to conclude a dangerous and ill-conceived nuclear agreement with an incorrigible and evil nation, a leading sponsor of terrorism. Since when does the United States negotiate out of fear, out of weakness?
What the Other GOP Candidates Can Learn from Trump
According to polls, the No. 1 thing Donald Trump's fans like about him is that he "tells it like it is." I think his fans are wrong about this. But that's a column -- actually a lot of columns -- for another time.

Planned Parenthood's Big Fat 3% Lie
Its easy to be corrupt when you kill for a living. Does anyone really expect the nations largest abortion and baby-parts-trafficking chain to be honest about its numbers? They abort and distort every single day.

Whatever anniversaries say about the events remembered, they may say most about those who remember them.
Clinton Email Dump Is Popcorn-worthy

President Trump's Legacy: The Great Wall of Mexico

This Saturday is Jury Rights Day, which commemorates the 1670 acquittal of Quaker leader William Penn by English jurors who refused to convict him even though he had clearly violated a ban on dissenting religious assemblies.
