    If you want to read an uplifting commencement address, one that is not bitter and self-absorbed or nasty and partisan, as all too many have been this season, Vice President Mike Pence gave a lovely graduation address at Hillsdale College. Pence praised "our great inheritance" as Americans: You are an extraordinary group of men and women who have accomplished extraordinary things in your time here, and you’ve only just begun. You are 366 strong, you represent 37 states and five countries, and you’ve persevered through one of the most challenging and transformative educations in the country. Although it seems, at...
  • Is Our World Getting Better and Better?

    And now, some good news. Did you know that global poverty is going down? Did you know that global literacy is going up? Did you know that violent crime statistics are dropping and IQs are rising? Did you know that child labor and exploitation are decreasing and human rights are increasing? Our headlines are full of social division, political gridlock, international disorder, increasing militarization, climatic disasters and other problems. Watch the news for half an hour, and it certainly appears that world conditions are getting worse and worse. But some intelligent people argue that since news coverage inherently focuses on...

    It’s well past time that the masses started taking the prog-left at their word! In a dotage most discernible to all, Peter Henry Fonda’s name has been left in the mud; his 49-year-old ‘Easy Rider’ days image too far behind in the rearview mirror to matter anymore. In real life, at age 78, Fonda is the young hippie biker who became the old hippie with a much different decrepit set of wheels. Peter Henry Fonda, (the name with which he signed his threatening Tweet saying Americans upset with the White House’s separation of illegal-immigrant families should “rip Barron Trump from...

    I generally am an upbeat guy, always trying to look on the bright side... I generally try to stay optimistic, empathetic, give everyone the benefit of the doubt and am generally quick to forgive when I'm slighted, etc., etc. But my recent visit to California, where I was forced, among other indignities, to endure the prattle of a queer communist bastard (my sister's best friend) explaining how "...we just have to tax the rich until there ARE no more rich... it's just what we have to do," at the Olive Garden--when I was paying the tab--has caused me to ruminate...

    In their latest attempt to swing this fall’s election toward the democrats, the left now wants us to focus on “the children.” They haven’t really thought this through. Liberals the world over should work hard to avoid any debate that significantly involves the lives and wellbeing of children. Most anyone armed with even the slightest bit of the truth when it comes to liberalism and “the children” can easily quiet the left in virtually any debate that involves children or the family… …If we can’t trust liberals to instruct children properly on who is a male and who is a...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Take that, CNN and NBC! – ABC News, desperate to gain its footing in the race to produce the fakest of all the fake news in the #fakenew universe, decided to just chuck it all on Wednesday and run news so fake that even some at CNN were embarrassed by it. In the middle of the networks fake coverage of a real meeting at the White House, ABC’s chyron ran a blaring note claiming “Manafort Pleads Guilty to 5 Charges of Manslaughter”. Obviously, Paul Manafort did not plead guilty to manslaughter or...

    SEOUL/BEIJING/WASHINGTON • When United States President Donald Trump outlined his vision for the economic development of North Korea, he played on Western ideals of luxurious apartments with sea views. But just days after a landmark summit with the US President, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has made clear that he has a different model in mind: China. The 34-year-old Chairman of the State Affairs Commission was set to depart Beijing yesterday after a two-day tour aimed at winning China's financial backing for what Pyongyang says will be a new era of reduced international tensions and domestic economic development. Scepticism...

    Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell, the first and to date only MLB player to kneel during the national anthem, was combative and foul-mouthed during his arrest for aggravated assault last October, video shows. TMZ Sports obtained video of Maxwell’s arrest after he allegedly brandished a gun at a Postmates driver. When police arrived, they found Maxwell shirtless and smelling of alcohol, and he began berating police, telling them “half of America is afraid of y’all” and “that’s the reason why I took a knee.” He also becomes emotional as he describes how he and his family received death threats for...

    TV show host and political pundit S.E. Cupp tore apart a flawed view of women and politics with a New York Times essay that was simply titled, "No Not All Women are Democrats." The idea should be so simple, that a duh would be the response. But sadly, female leaders on the left from Hillary Clinton to Michelle Obama have spent the past 19 months trying to understand this phenomenon. Cupp made a number of salient points, but these three points stick out: Don't judge me by my looks. Cupp writes: As a college-educated twentysomething woman with cool glasses and...

    The Payne County Oklahoma Budget Board voted to restore county employee's Second Amendment rights on May 14, 2018. Oklahoma requires a state issued carry permit to carry a handgun outside the home, except for certain, limited exceptions. The Payne County Budget Board made clear that county employees can exercise Second Amendment rights inside of county buildings, if they have  a valid carry permit and sign a waiver. The waiver states they understand some limitations, and they are not to draw the firearm except in valid defense of self or others. From stwnewspress.com: Reding said the Budget Board, a body...

    For a left-wing civil rights organization purportedly dedicated to protecting minorities, the George Soros-supported Southern Poverty Law Center spends a lot of time peddling hatred against minorities, or at least those minorities who dare to step off the liberal plantation. ake Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformist who’s earned a reputation for telling it how it is about the millennia-old religion. While speaking on London’s LBC radio station last year, for instance, he boldly demanded a caller “stop pretending” violence and terrorism have nothing to do with Islam. During a discussion on Sky News earlier this year, he likewise slammed the...

    Does America break up families, keep kids in cages, and abuse illegal immigrants? Obviously, not enough or there would be far fewer illegal immigrants. (They're far more looped into the risks than the average Joe). The facts are this is rare, temporary, this has been done forever (and under the Obama and Clinton administrations), and the idea that criminals shouldn't be separated from their kids is absurd. Under the Democrats reasoning, for domestic crime, it is fine to separate families. But for foreign invaders and perpetrators should get special exceptions. But a nation without laws is no longer a nation....

    What are infestations? They are takeovers by vermin, rodents, insects. What does one do with an infestation? Why, one exterminates it. One of the paradoxes of modern-day American politics is that white identity politics can be a potent political platform, as long as you don’t call it that. Policies with racist effects are often popular; explicit racism is verboten. Thus Donald Trump can win the presidency while running, as my colleague Adam Serwer documented, on a program of discrimination, but when Corey Stewart, a Republican politician in Virginia, makes his white-identity politics too explicit he gets shunned by the GOP....
