Steve Sherman:

President Ronald Reagan and Donald J. Trump have many things in common. One is the idea that we need to be a strong nation and we secure peace through strength. The most recent actions by President Trump to hike up defense spending, after years of neglect, is a great step to make America’s defense even stronger.

The problem with pretending

Gil Gutknecht:

Let’s all pretend that our friends on the Left love our country as much as we do. Pretend that they really want a strong economy and more jobs, especially for women and minorities. That the last thing they want is a recession which would hurt millions of working families. We can imagine that secretly they are pleased that we finally have an American president who is standing up to Chinese trade abuses, a President who is actually fighting for our interests.

Kurt Schlichter: “Climate change” is a hoax

I hate science, evidently, because I’m woke to the manifest truth about what the leftist elite currently calls “climate change.” It is the second most staggering fraud ever perpetrated upon the American people after the media’s promotion of the unstoppable candidacy of Beto (who is a furry). Like some suckers still do, I once believed that “science” was a rigorous process where you tested theories and revised those theories in response to objective evidence.

Michael Reagan: America tunes out demented Dems

It’s too bad for America that CNN’s seven-hour town hall on climate change was such a rating disaster.

If twenty times as many viewers had tuned in Wednesday night, about 22 million Americans today would have a real clear idea what a bunch of leftwing nut-jobs are running in the Democrat presidential primary.

In New Orleans and Louisiana, people enjoy Mardi Gras, politics, good food and great festivals, but nothing compares to the fervor that is directed toward their professional football team, the Saints, said Jeff Crouere in a recent column.

Who won, who lost, World War II?

By Pat Buchanan:

Sunday, the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland, Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Warsaw’s Pilsudski Square of “five decades of untold suffering and death that followed” the invasion. Five decades!

What Pence was saying was that, for Poland, World War II did not end in victory but defeat and occupation by an evil empire ruled by one of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century, Josef Stalin.

The “Liberation of Europe,” the 75th anniversary of which we celebrated at Omaha Beach on June 6, was a liberation that extended only to the Elbe River in the heart of Germany.

Deplorables takes to Branson streets

My wife and I enjoyed a few days relaxing in Branson, Missouri over the Labor Day weekend. Besides hearing some good country and gospel music, eating great food, visiting with others in Branson from all over the country, I was impressed with several older men demonstrating on several street corners along historic Route 76.

The older men were carrying signs like “Hillary, enemy of the people”, “Lock Her Up”, and so on. As motorists along Route 76 would pass these men, most tooted their car horns and waved.

I guess these men and all those motorists came from the “basket of deplorables” Hillary talked about in a speech during the last presidential campaign.

Pushing back against bullies, bigots

By Todd Starnes:

For eight years the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and the Obama administration waged a relentless war on religious liberty within the ranks of the Armed Forces.

As I document in my forthcoming book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,”  nativity scenes were removed from military bases, Airmen were punished because of their religious beliefs and VA hospitals imposed draconian rules that even forbade school children from distributing Christmas cards that included the words “Merry Christmas.”

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation’s most recent attack came in May when they filed a federal lawsuit demanding that a World War II veteran’s family Bible be removed from a Missing Man Table at the VA Medical Center in Manchester, New Hampshire.

So true: “It’s the media, stupid!”

Paul Curry:

Are we ever not in divided times? That’s the nature of democracy. Disagreement is the nature of any two-party or multi-party system. Yet, if one were to listen to the media, any media, one would naturally come to believe that we are living in the most apocalyptic, divided era since the American Civil War.

Yet reality simply does not back that up. Clear, statistical evidence and political trends indicate that, for at least the last thirty years, the U.S. has been quite stable. But that is not the narrative we are force fed. Ever since Donald Trump’s famous escalator ride, right through his election to the Presidency, and onto today, we are told that we are living in tremendously divided times.

And the culprit, the cause of all of this division? Of course, Donald Trump. But we are not that divided, and the degree to which we are is not President Trump’s fault. It’s the media, stupid.
