• Let’s Play ‘Let’s Pretend’

    Let’s pretend that history will show Donald Trump as being elected president Nov. 8.

  • Immigration Controversies

    Despite controversies that rage over immigration, it is hard to see how anyone could be either for or against immigrants in general.

  • Media Bias Is One Thing; Its Complicity Is Another

    We keep reading that if Donald Trump’s personal issues weren’t sucking up all the media oxygen, his campaign might get more traction against Hillary Clinton from the WikiLeaks disclosures, but is that really true?

  • Just the Facts, Ma’am

    Hillary Clintons cascading e-mail troubles are dragging her down — while issues are lifting Donald Trump up.

  • A Presidency From Hell?

    Should Donald Trump surge from behind to win, he would likely bring in with him both houses of Congress.

  • So Far, Trump Not Sinking Down-Ballot Republicans

    Could a flailing Donald Trump campaign hurt down-ballot Republicans and cost the party majorities in the Senate and House? That seems possible, if he loses to Hillary Clinton by a margin similar to those in most current polls and if Americans keep on straight-ticket voting as they have increasingly in recent years.

  • Our New Country: Women And Minorities Hit Hardest

    Every ethnic group except whites bloc-votes for the Democrats. Coincidentally, the Democrats have brought in another 30 to 40 million nonwhite immigrants in the last few decades.

  • Trump’s Solid Debate Performance Disappears in an Instant

    LAS VEGAS — Standing in a garish hotel lobby, casino music pounding, a Republican who has worked hard to help Donald Trump couldn’t quite believe how the final presidential debate had ended just a couple of hours earlier.

  • Dumb American Youth

    Do you wonder why Sen. Bernie Sanders and his ideas are so popular among American college students?

  • The Ruling Class

    America is often described as a society without the Old World’s aristocracy. Yet we still have people who feel entitled to boss the rest of us around. The “elite” media, the political class, Hollywood and university professors think their opinions are obviously correct, so they must educate us peasants.

  • Turnout Time

    Some of us this election year don’t even want to say the words “Clinton” or “Trump” — and with good reason. However, there is one word that we should keep in mind: “Turnout.”

  • Hillary’s Climate of Hate

    Who are the haters? Who are the autocrats? Who are the serial abusers of power?

  • Dump Duterte — for Starters

    Alliances are transmission belts of war.

  • The Politics These Two Unpopular Nominees Hath Wrought

    In last week’s third and (thank goodness) final presidential debate, each candidate did an excellent job of presenting convincing arguments for why people shouldn’t vote for the other.

  • Freedom to Work

    If a person wants to go into business as a taxicab owner, what requirements should be imposed to protect the public?

  • A Better Choice

    Hillary Clinton is a manipulative, power-mad liar. Donald Trump is a selfish, sexist, narcissistic bully. These are our choices Nov. 8?

  • The Left and the Masses: Part III

    Claiming the role of champions of the masses is something the political left has been doing ever since there has been a political left — which is to say, ever since the late 18th century, when people with such views sat on the left side of the French National Assembly.

  • The Left and the Masses: Part II

    It is never easy to tell what people’s motives are. But, when the political left proclaims their devotion to improving the lives of others in general, and of the poor in particular, we can at least get some clues from the way they go about it.

  • The Left and the Masses

    The greatest moral claim of the political left is that they are for the masses in general and the poor in particular. That is also their greatest fraud. It even fools many leftists themselves.

  • Dangerous Collusion

    I’ve never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but I don’t know how reasonable people can fail to recognize the overt collusion of the Obama administration, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Party and the liberal media to shield Hillary Clinton from accountability for her many misdeeds and abundant corruption.
