Greatest hysteria in American history

By Dennis Prager

You and I are living through the greatest mass hysteria in American history. For many Americans, the McCarthy era held that dubious distinction, but what is happening now is incomparably worse.

For one thing, any hysteria that existed then was directed against the greatest evil in the world at the time: communism. Then-Sen. Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee notwithstanding, there really were Americans in important positions who supported communist regimes enslaving their populations and committing mass murder. McCarthy was on to something.

Quick reflection on qualifying last week

By Sammy J. Fraklin

A quick look at qualifying of candidates for the fall 2018 election reveals that for the most part, voters are satisfied with the performance of most of their local elected officials.

Twenty-three school board and municipal officials were returned to office for new terms without opposition, which relates that voters are very pleased with the performance of these officials for the past four years.

Preserving a Constitutional Republic

By Derek Hunter+

Every year, without fail, some conservative says, “Why doesn’t Saturday Night Live make fun of liberals the way they mock conservatives?” It makes sense on the surface; the show is hopelessly, and joylessly, liberal because it’s written by liberals, and they happen to be in a perpetual state of anger. But there’s another problem. Even if SNL wanted to mock liberals it would be nearly impossible to do. Not because there’s nothing to mock, it’s because they’ve actually become a parody of themselves, and it’s very difficult to parody a parody.

Preserving a Constitutional Republic

By Terry Paulson:

 

Elections matter. With a presidential victory comes the right and the responsibility to appoint Supreme Court justices to the court. Last week, President Donald Trump announced his next appointment. His promise to appoint originalist judges helped bring him to office. Instead of allowing the Constitution to become a “living document” drifting on the winds of opinions, an originalist judge is committed to keeping the Constitution an anchor that provides a true north for our country’s laws.

Changing our Constitution is difficult for a reason. To change it easily leaves our freedoms susceptible to the whims of context and emotion. The Constitution is not there to protect government from the people, but the people from an overreaching government.

A supreme liberal meltdown

By Derek Hunter

Who doesn’t love it when a good plan comes together? More than that, who doesn’t love it when their opponents’ own actions come back to bite them in the butt? Both of those things came to a head this week when Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he was calling it a day, opening up a second seat on the high court for President Donald Trump to fill.

The announcement caused liberals to lose what was left of their collective mind. The plan was to elect a Republican president; a box the American people checked by rejecting Hillary Clinton. The butt-biting was that Democrats were so irrational at the success of that plan that they effectively disarmed themselves by using the last obstructionist tool they had – the filibuster – leaving them with nothing but anger and regret.

Trump fights for a better America

By Sammy J. Fraklin

A faithful reader shared a column with me the other day that reportedly was written by the mayor of a California city. But after checking for facts, I learned the column was not written by the mayor, but instead was penned by Evan Sayet, a conservative columnist.

The column first appeared a year ago, in July 2017, at Town Hall. It first appeared under the headline, “He Fights!” It’s a good read and really makes you stop and think about what is going on in this country today.

Congress is broken… and spineless

By Michael Reagan

It’s no surprise that Democrats and everyone in the liberal media are blaming President Trump personally for the crying immigrant children at the border.

He gets blamed for everything their hysterical minds can think of.

A birthday present for the Deep Statements

By Paul Jacob:

Is the enemy of your enemy your friend? President Donald J. Trump, meet fugitive Edward J. Snowden. Mr. Snowden, famous for divulging the NSA’s illegal domestic spying operations and other secrets to The Washington Post and to Glenn Greenwald with the Guardian in London, is clearly the enemy of the Fourth Amendment-trampling “Deep State.” And that same Deep State appears to work as nothing less than President Trump’s enemy. “The Justice Department inspector general . . . castigated former FBI director James B. Comey for his actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and found that other senior bureau officials showed a ‘willingness to take official action’ to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president,” the Washington Post reported last week. As G-Man Peter Strzok texted in response to G-Woman Lisa Page’s concern that Trump could possibly become president:

Trump is a born dealmaker

By Dr. Shea Garrison:

 

President Trump is a businessman and a deal-maker—we knew that when we elected him. His administration operates differently from any other previous presidential administration, including in diplomacy, where deals are truly an “art form.” So, it is not surprising President Trump threw protocol out the window when he met last week with Chairman Kim Jon Un, the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader. Those disappointed with the outcomes of the summit posit that Kim, not
