Jim Acosta, the caravan IS an invasion

A dictionary check would do a world of good for  CNN’s  Jim Acosta and other progressives who mightily insist that the caravan heading our way is not an “invasion.” Cambridge Dictionary:  An occasion when a large number of people or things come to a place in an annoying and unwanted way: the annual invasion of foreign...

With the booming economy, Dems had to find another way to scare the bejabbers out of voters

And they found it: Dire warnings  that Republicans would kill the law requiring health care insurers to cover pre-existing conditions. That the fear-mongering assertions were taken up by Democrat candidates and their supporters at almost the precise same time indicates that it was a strategy universally adopted by the party. It was Plan B after... Read more »

My 22-year-old prescient Sun-Times column about today's nasty elections

You are mistaken if you think nasty, divisive elections are something new. On February 25, 1996 while I was a member of the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board, I wrote a column that sounds like it was ripped from today’s headlines.

Progressives map out a further move left

Pro-Kavanaugh women fed up with the sexism

Reports the Washington Times: Women who supported the confirmation of Supreme CourtJustice Brett M. Kavanaugh have been ripped on the left as brainwashed, shameful, privilege-defending gender traitors, and it’s starting to annoy them.

Sen. Collins on Kavanaugh--the best speech since ML King's "I have a dream" speech

Sen. Susan Collins, explaining why she will vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, gave the best speech heard in America since Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech in 1963 during the March on Washington.

Kavanaugh haters engage in a logical fallacy

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s opponents  have so routinely dragged out a logical fallacy against his nomination to the Supreme Court that you have to wonder if logic is still being taught in school.
