Why gun control won't end mass murder

As the nation continues to reel from the nation's worst mass shooting in modern history, politicians and other opportunists find the massacre too inviting not to exploit. The knee-jerk cravenness of liberals to scrape up their calls for gun-control while demonizing the National Rifle Association (NRA) immediately sucks all the air out of the room, eliminating any discussion or investigation of other foundational forces driving mass violence.

Laying waste to the party of Lincoln and Reagan

Isn't it time the president stage an intervention to save Congress from itself? As leader of the Republican Party, the president has every right, even a duty, to intervene when it becomes clear his own party leadership is not only obstructing the will of the people, but is doing damage to the country.

The deadly impact of identity politics

In the aftermath of the horror of the Charlottesville riot, there's been less condemnation by the media and the left of the neo-Nazi that is charged with murdering Heather Heyer and injuring at least 19 others than there has been of President Trump.

Imagine this: Someone goes through massive body-altering, gender-changing surgery, changes her life and risks the rejection of her family, all in order to be her genuine self.

The compulsion to confess

Lots of talk about language this week. Anthony Scaramucci, the ousted pick for White House communications director, was removed, apparently, for a variety of reasons, the most public being a vulgarity-laced conversation with a reporter.

'Conform or else': Democrats bully conservative women, minorities

On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages." Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here's a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: "A Bully's Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don't Conform, We'll Ruin Your Life."

Weaponizing language and communication

Fake news has become known for being a false story, gossip or even lies promulgated by the legacy media. We know what our news media establishment often delivers is nothing more than opinion masquerading as news. That in itself is a huge problem. We're all learning about how to recognize it and how seriously to take it, if at all.

The brilliant wrestling match tweet

There are many discussions about the President Trump "wrestling" CNN tweet, but it's time to get to the heart of the matter: that the tweet was brilliant, anticipating a ridiculously overwrought reaction by the legacy media, and boy, did they deliver.

The fallacy of 'unhealthy competition'

Just when you thought liberals were focusing only on destroying our government, there is now ample evidence that fellow travelers have been working diligently to destroy the ideas and dreams of our young people.

Trump and the liberal hate-fest

Almost six out of 10 American voters are angry and dissatisfied with how the media is covering politics, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. Someone has finally united us, and it's through rejection of the 24/7 media (read liberal) hate-fest of President Trump.

Abusing assisted suicide laws

As we remain inundated with the news and chaos of terrorist attacks, a life-and-death struggle is emerging here at home, manifesting some of the same threats to Western values, and even to the core understanding of civilization itself and its value of life. With the passage of assisted-suicide laws, there are new reports that health insurance companies are refusing to cover lifesaving medical care and are offering to pay patients to kill themselves instead.

Another lesson from Manchester

After the horrific carnage unleashed by the terrorist attack in Manchester, England, some of the reactions were inexplicable. We're used to jihadis celebrating the horror of mass murder, but it's still perplexing to hear Western leaders and media reissue their bizarre insistence that we need to get used to the sick and depraved.
