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.

Exposing the obscenity of infanticide

During President Trump's State of the Union address earlier this month, Americans saw Democratic politicians for what they have truly become. People were shocked when the majority of the Democratic caucus, including most of the party's women all dressed in white, couldn't find it in their hearts to applaud when the president called for "a culture that cherishes innocent life."

Class warfare and the Democrats

It never ceases to amaze that liberals and progressives can stand in the middle of cities and towns they've destroyed and ask for more power and promotions. Yes, they do it all the time, and the lead-ups to the 2020 elections are no different.

The Democrats' 'Green New Hoax'

Here's a scoop for you: The so-called "Green New Deal," onto which 70 leading Democrats have signed, doesn't exist. Like a salesman parked at a corner hawking a small bottle filled with a mystery substance that will cure everything from insomnia to cancer, the Democratic Party is promoting a fraud-work quilt promising a cure for all.

Chaos in the House: Pelosi knows the freshman caucus is out of control

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is determined to stop President Trump from delivering the State of the Union address on Jan. 29. She says it's due to the shutdown, but that's nonsense and just a political ploy. So what is the real reason Mrs. Pelosi doesn't want the American people to see it? The increasingly obvious reason is the House is in chaos.

Liberals and Gillette characterizing all men as predators

One of the left's favorite tactics to control a society is to divide and conquer. For generations now, the liberal establishment has sought to pit blacks against whites, gays against straights and women against men. While there are differences between people, the concerted effort to exacerbate problems, increase them and then use them politically, continues on.

The Golden Globes show wallows in screeds, name-calling

The Hollywood set started the new year thinking they had the perfect plan. After years of watching the ratings crater for their self-congratulatory award shows, they were probably sure this year would be different. The Golden Globes was supposed to be the reset.
