    Denver Corruptocrats’ Chick-fil-A Smokescreen

    Holier-than-thou liberals on the Denver city council are waging war on Chick-fil-A in the name of tolerance and diversity. Now, let me tell you what the squawking is really all about: It’s a distraction, a feint, a mile-high smokescreen.

  • It Depends on What the Meaning of 'Crazies' Is

    It Depends on What the Meaning of ‘Crazies’ Is

    Yeah, I get President Obama’s point. He wants to disarm law-abiding Americans but entrust the Iranian Islamist theocracy to police itself on nuclear arms and subsidize its funding of global terrorism. But we’re the “crazies.”

  • What Is Obama’s Top Population-Control Freak Hiding?

    The most transparent administration in American history is at it again — dodging sunlight and evading public disclosure.

  • The Struggle for Economic Liberty

    The Struggle for Economic Liberty

    Here’s my taxi question. If a person is law-abiding, has a driver’s license, has a car or van that has passed safety inspection, and has adequate liability insurance, is there any consumer-oriented reason he should not be able to become a taxicab owner/operator?

  • Rank the Candidates

    Rank the Candidates

    Sorting the Candidates

    Despite a nuclear Iran looming on the horizon, the media seem to be putting most of their attention on two candidates for their respective parties’ presidential nominations next year. Moreover, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each make their own party nervous.

    Liberal Double Standards and Planned Parenthood

    Liberals are famous for shaming conservatives for their past associations with questionable characters, while they exempt themselves from the same standards. What a shocker!

  • Donald Trump's Half-Serious, Half-Fantasy Immigration Plan

    Donald Trump’s Half-Serious, Half-Fantasy Immigration Plan

    Donald Trump’s six-page platform on immigration may not be, as Ann Coulter wrote, “the greatest political document since the Magna Carta.” But given the issue’s role in elevating the candidate to leading Republican polls, it merits serious attention.

  • Hillary: Nominee or Indictee?

    Hillary: Nominee or Indictee?

    While perhaps too early for Democratic elites to panic and begin bailing out on Hillary Clinton’s campaign as a doomed vessel, they would be well advised not to miss any of the lifeboat drills.

  • Fed Right, Trump Wrong

    Just-published minutes from the Fed’s July 28-29 meeting indicate that most officials saw conditions for a rate liftoff as “not yet” achieved. They may be approaching a rate-hike moment, but they’re not there yet.
