“Nights of Rage” are how some pro-abortion activists described their plans for the days following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. By the time you read this, I hope we will know it was all talk from extremists. But in the weeks after the draft leak of the decision, there was v…

There are some who argue, and with good reasons, that all politicians should have a military background. Such sentiments are certainly desirable but not always feasible. What is both desirable and feasible is that all politicos should have a thorough understanding of economics and budgeting.

Have you been following the court case Biden v. Texas? It’s not in the headlines every day, but court filings in the case are giving us the best picture yet of what the Biden administration is doing on the U.S.-Mexico border. And the news is very, very bad.

It would be impossible to cover every social issue in 700-900 words, so we will start with the hot Supreme Court topic, abortion, and see where that leads us.

There’s no doubt inflation is the nation’s most pressing concern. All the polls show it. All the data shows it. And everyone just personally knows it.

A man was arrested on the way to murder a Supreme Court justice, according to authorities. And it was a footnote the next day in a major national newspaper. Was it because it was Brett Kavanaugh, which that particular paper isn’t happy is on the Court? That same paper had above the fold “Ins…

There’s something remarkable about the gun debate that has arisen in the aftermath of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Compared to years past, the argument on Capitol Hill is somewhat muted. Yes, members of the House of Representatives are yelling at each other, but that’s nothing unusu…

Think about it this way: There is no army or police department in any halfway civilized country — not even the United States — that would allow an untrained, callow 18-year-old boy like the Uvalde, Texas, school shooter to wear a uniform and carry an AR-15 assault rifle.

Is there anything more painful than parents burying their children? How about children losing both of their parents in the same week? There’s so much pain emanating out of the Uvalde, Texas, Robb Elementary School shooting.

Donald Trump tried to purge two Georgia Republicans — Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger — for committing one unpardonable sin: standing up to the former president and telling the truth, that he lost the state to Joe Biden by more than 11,000 votes.

I’ve heard things in recent days about the pro-life movement that are not true. I’ve read how we’re against abortion because we want more white babies for white couples to adopt. This doesn’t make any sense to anyone who has ever spent time at an abortion clinic, where the vast majority of a…

President Biden likes to blame inflation on the COVID pandemic and the war in Ukraine — or, as he says, “Putin’s price hike.” But the fact is, Biden’s own actions, and those of his party, have also contributed significantly to the rise in the cost of living that is making it harder and harde…

Think about it this way: If Justice Samuel Alito gets his way and the Trumpist Supreme Court majority voids Roe v. Wade, many states will be forced to begin criminal investigations of women who suffer miscarriages. Don’t give me that crying act, sweetheart. In this state, abortion is murder.

“I felt like a fireman in hell. I couldn’t put out all the fires.” That’s a quote from Steven Massof, an employee of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist. Massof was operating illegally as a doctor in Gosnell’s clinic. At Gosnell’s trial, Massof testified to the horrors that played…

All but lost in the cacophony of the news of last week — continued fighting in Ukraine, continued economic worries, continued strife over abortion — were three of the most important sentences of the season. They came at the end of a 1,300-word speech that began “Happy Sunday!” and addressed …

I had occasion recently to sit in the early evening on my daughter’s deck and watch quietly as a small group of kids played a game of their own making. It might have been Cops and Robbers or Cowboys and Indians from my own childhood, or it might have been role-playing characters from some vi…
