Lax election enforcement must go

Ballot box, symbol of elections. The Texas voter ID law will stop people from stuffing this, and hopefully other kinds of voter fraud. If Donald Trump doesn't insist on this kind of backup, he'll likely lose the election.

It looks like Hillary Clinton will finish with slightly more popular votes than President-elect Donald Trump, who won a clear majority of Electoral votes in last Tuesday’s election.

Remember the election stakes

Osama Bin Laden compound. A terrorist attack to kill an ambassador, but not to avenge this? Remember this in elections to come.

Americans have long set aside days to remember our men and women in uniform, some of whom gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our God-given freedoms.

Socialism: the truth

Then-Representative (and Senator-elect) Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) speaks to the press. Would he really be a good fit as "the first Jewish President"?

When Sen. Bernie Sanders came within a few coin flips of beating Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses, it signaled the Democratic Party’s astounding march toward an outright embrace of socialism.

Nuclear option: pushing the button

The elephant in the room: is Hillary Clinton paving the way for Bill? Or his her own ideology bad enough? She exhibits many traits of a sociopath, but does so deliberately.

Now, President Obama can nominate the Three Stooges to the federal bench if he wants, and get away with it. Why? Because last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear option,” and the Senate voted 52 to 48 to change Senate rules by reducing the number of votes needed for cloture on nominees from 60 to 51 (which could include Vice President Joe Biden’s tie-breaking vote).

Democrats: sanity as extremism

Seal of Virginia. Translation: Thus Always to Tyrants. The first battle in a wider war took place in Charlottesville on or about 12 August 2017. A second battle may shortly take place...

Democrats employ only one campaign strategy: Demonize all the Republicans

Big government is a Goliath to fear

Remember Martin Niemöller during the Little Sisters of the Poor case. Remember also the political prisoners of his day.

A 10-year-old girl with cystic fibrosis has given us a snapshot into the brave new world of big government and why we should fear it.

The parents of Sarah Murnaghan asked to put her on an adult waiting list for a lung transplant, but health authorities said she wasn’t 12, the minimum age. It took a court order amid public outrage to reverse what amounted to a death sentence.

Contrast this with the government’s waiving all rules when a major Democratic donor with cancer wanted access to a new drug that the Federal Drug Administration was years away from approving.

Ten Commandments: ACLU loses lawsuit

The Ten Commandments: a proper blueprint for America

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has lost its six-year campaign to tear down a Ten Commandments monument at the Dixie County, Florida courthouse.

Boy Scouts shouldn’t abandon morality

A Boy Scout patrol does community service.

When I was a Boy Scout, we learned many useful skills – everything from tying knots to filleting a fish. I also learned about the chaos that can be unleashed in a Boy Scout troop when one member is gay.

‘Tokyo Rose’ and voter suppression

Ballot box, symbol of elections. The Texas voter ID law will stop people from stuffing this, and hopefully other kinds of voter fraud. If Donald Trump doesn't insist on this kind of backup, he'll likely lose the election.

During World War II, American soldiers in the Pacific listened to Radio Tokyo and other English-language programs on Japanese-run stations. Servicemen wrote home that “Tokyo Rose,” who was actually an amalgam of several female broadcasters, played American music and taunted them in a seductive voice about wives or girlfriends cheating on them.

Chicago Does Mean Corruption

A Chicago montage

Chicago. Chicago. Chicago.

You can’t say it enough. That’s because liberals fear that the very name of the city of Al Capone, Richard J. Daley, Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama has become shorthand for dirty politics and redistributionist economics.
