Democrats Once Again Embrace Population Control to Save the Planet

Written by Stephen Moore

Is the left once again embracing Malthusian population control in order to save the planet?

Of all the preposterous proposals put forward by the Democratic presidential candidates during the CNN climate change town hall meeting last week, the dumbest wasn’t outlawing plastic straws, incandescent light bulbs or air travel. It wasn’t the contention that climate change is the globe’s greatest threat since World War II. It wasn’t even the fantastical hypothesis that hurricanes are racist because they target “communities of color” more than white areas.… Continue Reading

Pocahontas’ Worst Lie

Written by Robert Knight

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has again apologized – sort of – for lying about being an American Indian back when it helped advance her academic legal career.

At a Native American presidential forum in Sioux City, Iowa last week, the Massachusetts Democrat framed her prevarications as a mistake:

“I want to say this, like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes. I am sorry for harm that I have caused.

Five New GOP Women to Watch in 2020

Written by Carol Davis

It’s a great time to be a woman in Congress — if you’re a Democrat.

Women make up nearly a quarter of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate with 127 voting members, the highest percentage in history. Only 21 of these members are Republican. That’s one Republican woman for every six Democratic women serving in Congress. In last year’s historic midterms, the number of Republican women in Congress actually decreased.

I’ve never been a fan of identity politics, but I understand from experience that identity matters, whether one likes it or not.… Continue Reading

Joe Walsh’s Misguided Self-Serving Candidacy

Written by David E. Smith and John Biver

Some Illinoisans wonder how Joe Walsh morphed from a Trump-supporter into a Trump-hater so intense he’s decided to run against Trump in the 2020 primaries. What strikes many as odd about Walsh’s transformation is that Trump has accomplished much of what he promised and has governed more conservatively than many expected.

Perhaps Walsh, like other Trump-haters, paid too much attention to Trump’s tweets and too little attention to all the good Trump has accomplished for the American people, including record low unemployment among blacks and Hispanics, good judicial appointments, deregulation, moving the U.S.… Continue Reading

Wise and Honest Candidates Needed

Written by John Biver

Illinois Democrats have shoved the most extreme legislation down the throats of Illinoisans by passing the nation’s most radical abortion bill, forcing public school indoctrination of our children, imposing higher taxes and fees and putting more drugs on our streets. The pendulum will not swing back on its own. We need to step up if we hope to counter the billionaire Governor and the Illinois Democrats. ~ IFA’s David E. Smith

Right now, there are many thousands of people who have decided not to give up on Illinois.… Continue Reading

‘Fact-Checkers’ Find Democrats Are Truth Tellers

Written by L. Brent Bozell III

One reason many Americans don’t trust those “fact-checker” websites is because to know them is to see right through their incessantly liberal worldview. These impartial arbiters of truth routinely defend Democrats as being “Mostly True” on everything while savaging Republicans as just the opposite. It’s not just Donald Trump, mind you. It’s Ted Cruz. And Rick Santorum. And Newt Gingrich. And pretty much anyone who challenges liberal orthodoxy.… Continue Reading

Joe Biden Leads the Pack with Deceptive “Moderate” Platform

Written by Timothy J. Dailey

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) maintains a solid lead over his Democratic rivals, portraying himself as the more reasonable alternative to what he calls his far-left primary opponents. Yet his own policy positions have historically been demonstrably more radical than the mainstream America he claims to represent.

What many people remember about Biden is his lifelong penchant for making embarrassing gaffs that elicit groans from his supporters and delight his opponents, such as when he addressed a wheelchair bound politician at a campaign rally: “I’m told Chuck Graham, state senator, is here.… Continue Reading

The Party with No Ideas

Written by John C. Goodman

At first glance you might think that the Democratic presidential campaign is boiling over with one new idea after another. Free health care. Free education. No more carbon emissions. There have been so many pronouncements, it’s hard to keep track of them.

But that’s just at first glance. If you delve deeper, you will discover these are not ideas at all. They are feelings. Strongly held feelings, mind you. But feelings, nonetheless.… Continue Reading

It’s Trump or the Zombie Apocalypse in 2020

Written by Jonathon Clay de Hale 

I was #nevertrump through the primaries and the general election because Trump was an obnoxious boor. I was dismayed by his ad hominem attacks on other candidates, his lack of verbal discipline, and his undeveloped approach to political policy.

The only thing I admired about him was that he didn’t give a rip about refined talking points or toeing the line. During the first Republican debate he said, “I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness.… Continue Reading
