Jackie Cushman: Let's be the better example

We’ve had enough political news in half a week to last a month or more, but we know the velocity will only increase until the election. On Monday, Republicans and Democrats in Iowa participated in caucuses. President Donald Trump won the Republican caucuses in a landslide (somewhere north of 97 percent). This was not and is not news.

The news coming out of the Democratic caucuses involved a myriad of issues that affected how the votes were tabulated.

The result: The first partial results were not issued until 5 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday. It’s hard to imagine a worse start for the Democratic Party. The party that wants to control your health care can’t manage the caucus tabulation in one state.

"Ragged Old Flag" featured at Game

"Ragged Old Flag" featured at Game

I, like most Americans, watched a lot of the pre-game activities prior to Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, February 2nd.

There were all kinds of features and some interesting stuff on Fox during the afternoon leading up to the game, including an interview with President Donald Trump, something that never has been done on Super Bowl Sunday.

However, with all the other presentations, one of my favorite features was when Fox network aired a tribute to the United States of America and its flag before kick-off of the game.

Mexico is paying for Trump’s wall

President Donald Trump has done it again. He just keeps winning. He just keeps proving the Trump Doctrine works magnificently.

Don’t look now, but Trump has even built his wall -- and Mexico is paying for it. More on that later.

First, I want to explain how and why Trump is winning like no president in history. Even UFC legend Conor McGregor just called President Trump the GOAT -- as in “the greatest of all time.”

It’s all because of the Trump Doctrine, a mixture of Trump’s unique business acumen and negotiating skills. No other politician in the world has this combination of traits.

Like McGregor, Americans can see Trump is getting tangible results.

Best ways to get and keep motivated

Best ways to get and keep motivated

No matter what you do for a living, the key to success is motivating yourself, each and every day, according to Geoffrey James, a veteran business journalist who now writes a daily column for Inc.com. “Most people don’t realize that motivation mostly emerges from minor changes in your own behavior,” says James. Here’s how to remain a go-getter, even when the going gets rough:

1. Realize that YOU are in control. You cannot control the outside world, but you can control your emotional reaction to it.

2. Accept where you are. Life is like those signs that read “You Are Here.” You can get somewhere else only if you know where you are now.

3. Adopt a positive vocabulary. Use strong adjectives (e.g., “fantastic”) to describe what’s good and weak words (e.g., “annoying”) to describe what’s not.

4. Condition your mind. Train yourself to think positive thoughts while avoiding negative thoughts.

Gun control advocates ignore data

So much of the gun control debate is about things that might go wrong. Democrats, who just took control of the Virginia state legislature, are about to pass a law that will dramatically limit the ability of people with concealed handgun permits from other states to carry in Virginia. There haven’t been any problems with these permit holders, but that doesn’t matter for gun control advocates.

Currently, Virginia recognizes concealed handgun permits issued by all other states. Out-of-state permit holders can carry in Virginia as long as they follow local laws and carry photo identification.

Trump touts USA success at Forum

Trump touts USA success at Forum

President Trump sung the praises of the U.S. economy at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last week, telling the global business community that the changes in America’s economy under his administration have been “nothing short of spectacular.”

He told the crowd that when he last spoke at the WEF early into his presidency that his administration was undertaking the “great American comeback.”

“Today I’m proud to declare the United States is in the midst of an economic boom, the likes of which the world has never seen before,” he said in his address. “We’ve regained our stride, rediscovered our spirit, and reawakened the powerful machinery of American Enterprise.”

Wayne Allyn Root: How to make America even greater

We’re still just days into 2020. Now is the perfect time for President Donald Trump to drive the Democrats (aka radical socialists) crazy with rage by announcing these executive orders.

Terry Paulson: The roaring twenties already roaring

Terry Paulson: The roaring twenties already roaring

It’s a new year, but I fear there is no fresh beginning on the horizon. In my memory, I cannot think of a more divided time in America. Founded on a belief in freedom and the rights given by God to all, our Founding Fathers created a republic that protected citizens from government overreach and freed them to turn their dreams into reality. They had confidence in their citizens and the power of community to ensure the future of the republic.

Media yawn at the war on Christians

Brent Bozell and Tim Graham:

The secular media greet Christmas as a shopping season and not as a special time for Christianity. They can devote hours of December “news” to which hot toys or gadgets would make great gifts but not to segments on Christ and His birth.

The same applies to the persecution of Christians. The apathy shown by the pro-”human rights” media here is appalling. They can pile on the “news” stories about children getting separated from their parents at the border as being un-Christian ... but not Christians being butchered. In some corners of the world, they are out to destroy Christianity itself.

My dad instilled politics into me

Almost four score years ago, a mother delivered a baby that God had created in her womb, in a sharecropper’s cabin near Jigger in Franklin Parish. Early that morning, the baby’s father had sent for a doctor in Winnsboro to come to the house as his wife was in labor.

Around 8 a.m., the young man could not wait to make his grand appearance into this world, and the father delivered the baby, cleaned him and the mother up, and was sitting on the porch enjoying a cup of coffee about 10 a.m. when the good doctor from Winnsboro showed up.

The doctor asked the father, “Is this the house where the baby is waiting to be born?”
