Jake Tapper and Chuck Todd Prove (Again) Why Media Trust is So Low

Written by Peter Heck

When Gallup released the results of their recent Coronavirus crisis trust poll, I can’t help but think there were several jaws that hit the floor in America’s newsrooms. Having asked the American people whether they approved or disapproved of the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic by a host of various leaders and institutions, there was only one that found more disapproval than approval, on average.

President Trump? No, by a wide 22 points, Americans approved of his leadership.… Continue Reading

Red Birds From The Same Nest

Written by Robert Knight

Bernie Sanders may have missed his chance to finally head the Democratic ticket, but he still holds considerable clout, which is why Joe Biden was busy wooing the Vermont socialist’s supporters this past week. “Senator Sanders and I may disagree on tactics,” he said. “But we share a common vision.”

That’s good to keep in mind as the media try to cover up Mr. Biden’s recent leftward lurches and convert him into a “moderate” to seem less scary in November.… Continue Reading

The Worst Time for Congressional Partisanship

Written by David Limbaugh

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s attempted partisan sabotage of the coronavirus relief bill might mark a new low for her. That the bill finally passed doesn’t excuse her reckless gamesmanship.

Republican and Democratic U.S. Senate leaders were close to an agreement when Pelosi parked her partisan broomstick and poured poison into the congressional punchbowl.

“Talking to some Senate GOP sources,” Townhall political editor Guy Benson tweeted. “They seem stunned and angry.… Continue Reading

The Boorish Women of the Democratic Party

Written by Laurie Higgins

The boorish, embittered, hard-hearted members of the Democratic Caucus in Congress whom I think identify as women really test my ability to love my enemies. If you don’t know who I’m talking about, they’re the cult members dressed in white at the State of the Union (SOTU) address and a couple of others who chose to sit home. Their nominal cult leader is Nancy Pelosi—the boorish, embittered Speaker of the U.S.… Continue Reading

Democratic Presidential Disarray

Written by David Limbaugh

I’m almost as upset that Democratic presidential candidates are squabbling as I am that Prince Harry and the former Meghan Markle apparently don’t want to live in Los Angeles until President Donald Trump leaves office. Double bummer.

Speaking of doubles, did you know that U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have accused each other of lying? How can this be? Progressives don’t lie. With that in mind, one of them must be lying.… Continue Reading

Socialism, Howard Zinn and His Fake History

Written by Robert Knight

Why do so many young people hate America and think we’d be better off as a socialist country?

We’ve all heard about the impact of “fake news,” but there’s something even more dangerous: Teaching “fake history.”

“If you think that it is outrageous that Democratic presidential candidates want to eliminate the southern border and that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls our detention facilities there ‘concentration camps,’ then you haven’t been reading and believing Howard Zinn’s best-selling ‘A People’s History of the United States,’” writes Mary Grabar, Ph.D.… Continue Reading

How Democrats Became Science Deniers

Written by Israel Wayne

2019 found the Democratic party in the United States trying to out-do each other in terms of how radical and progressive they could sound. On the issue of abortion, it seems that many leading Democrats have never found an unborn baby they aren’t willing to have killed.

Radical Pro-Abortion Democrats

New York U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), a professing Roman Catholic, states: “And let us not forget the guiding principle of ‘the least among us’ found in Matthew: that we are compelled to care for the hungry, thirsty, homeless, naked, sick and, yes—the imprisoned.”… Continue Reading

Party of Progress
Lets Its Mask Slip

Written by Robert Knight

Things have come to a pretty pass when the most “moderate” Democratic presidential candidate wants to make history by bringing along a “first gentleman” instead of a first lady.

That’s where things stand after the latest Democratic debates, town halls and other glimpses into the bizarre strain in American politics known as progressivism.

The aforementioned “moderate” is Pete Buttigieg, the openly homosexual South Bend, Indiana, mayor whose legal spouse is a man.… Continue Reading

Wealth and Envy: A Wealth Tax Will Make Paupers of Us All

Written by Oliver Perry

In his presidential campaign, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders issued his own plan to institute a “wealth tax.”

While Warren has touted the tax to fund her agenda, the primary purpose of Sanders’s proposal is to correct what his campaign called the “outrageous level of inequality that exists in America today and to rebuild the disappearing middle class.”[1]

The wealth tax seems to have wide support. A Quinnipiac Poll claims that 60% of those surveyed support a 2% annual wealth tax on the rich.… Continue Reading

Stop Scaring the Children

Written by Stephen Moore

A friend of mine’s third grade daughter came home from school a few weeks ago with tears streaming down her cheeks. “My teacher says we only have 10 years before the oceans rise and we are underwater,” she moaned. “Are we all going to die?”

That’s a heavy burden to place on the shoulders of a 9-year-old.

Gloomy stories of the coming apocalypse have become commonplace in schools, textbooks, churches, movies and even children’s bedtime stories. … Continue Reading
