Calling 'the squad' to account

A very educational series of events occurred in the last couple of weeks illustrating the nature of political maneuvering at the national level. In this case, the Democrats are on the losing end, having been played expertly by President Donald Trump.

'Gay reparation': Democrats reinforce the politics of resentment and victimhood

The Democrats have absolutely nothing to offer people, so they continue their main effort to reduce Americans into warring tribes, keeping people distracted by the fact that Democrats have made everyone's lives worse in the cities and states where they prevail. They have such contempt for everyone, especially their own base, desperate for the politics of resentment to deliver money, votes and power.

California bill creates permission slip for 'willful defiance' of teachers, staff

A pattern we've seen throughout the United States is on a roll in California. Last week, the state Senate approved a bill to prohibit schools from suspending students who engage in "willful defiance" of teachers and other school authorities and staff. This permission slip for disruptive and even dangerous behavior also extends to the disruption of school activities.

The fraying edges of universal health care

If you're wondering what Democrats have in mind when they tout "Medicare For All," look no further than England. There are more reports of the U.K.'s National Health System's collapse, this time featuring horror stories of rationing care for the elderly.

The return of a familiar hypocrisy among Democrats as they defend Biden

We are told former Vice President Joe Biden is the highest-ranking Democrat to be accused of sexual impropriety since the #MeToo movement began. Yet Mr. Biden's propensity to invade the spaces of females of all ages has been documented and photographed and videoed throughout the years. This is a classic example of the "everybody knew" phenomenon.

Not a witch hunt, but a Trump hunt

In the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, many people are missing that the report does include an indictment -- of those who fabricated a horrendous crime to be blamed on the duly elected president of the United States. And not just any wrongdoing, but action that would have constituted treason, a crime punishable by death.

More displays of fraud from Democrats

For two years, Democrats and their leadership have been haranguing the people of the United States with hysteria claiming that President Trump was an agent of the Russians, stole the election, is mentally disturbed or unfit and obstructed justice -- among other bizarre and crazed accusations. Yet Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the Democratically-led House, has announced that impeaching Mr. Trump is "not worth it."

The left's new arrogant heroes and their hypocritical views

It's bad enough that the Democrats are trying to bamboozle their own base with the so-called Green New Deal. As I discuss in a previous column, this project is simply a get-out-the-vote effort using extreme language to manipulate their own base in a cynical campaign effort for 2020.
