This is us

This is us, America. This is who we are at this precise moment in time. A nation that separates families. A nation that interns children and infants in detention camps far from their parents, farther still from those the Trump administration perceives to be his meddlesome enemies; those whose prying eyes, brimming with empathy, and voices of reason are a threat to his regime.

Donald Trump suffers separation anxiety

When journalist Lenore Skenazy first introduced the concept of "free range parenting," I knew it was only a matter of time before the idea would careen out of control. Free range parenting is a return to the 1960's when kids were allowed to enjoy frightening activities like walking alone to the store, playing unsupervised in the park and remaining unwatched and unmonitored for hours at a time.

Congress is broken... and spineless

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.

Leftists taking language instruction from corporations

Jordan Peterson, a Canadian professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, is enjoying some measure of fame and its attendant notoriety for boldly coming out in support of common sense. He's even steadfast enough to continue his support when it conflicts with edicts from the leftist Speech Police.

Jeff Sessions’ asylum decision hurts women most in need

I have seen a woman beaten before my eyes, and I did nothing to stop it. It is hard, as a teenager, to know your power and to find your voice. Instead of confronting the violence, I hid behind a locked door.

Will Trump’s kid cruelty sink the GOP in November?

It may seem crass to discuss the potential political impact of Trump's family separation policy - especially when we can hear the kids wailing for their parents - but we do need to ask:

The case for continuing the International Space Station

Since the dawn of creation, mankind has been driven by the urge to explore the world around him. The quest for knowledge consumes us. We have to know if we are alone in the universe or if life exists someone beyond the big blue marble we call home.

Jerry Brown, ‘California Dreamin,’ faces reality check

A few weeks ago, I turned down an all-expenses-paid invitation to attend a late summer conference in San Francisco. After my 2016 visit to the Bay City, I vowed never to return. San Francisco is, to put it gently, an undesirable destination. Since most of California's major cities are as unpleasant as San Francisco, I'll likely never return to my native state. I left California in 2008 because of acute overcrowding and a state government determined to make living conditions worse for its residents, especially those already struggling in the lower economic bracket.

Canada is actually the bully on tariffs

It's amusing to see liberal Americans "virtue signaling" the world by "apologizing" for Trump for "attacking" Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau.

Democrat net neutrality plan is really about raising taxes

The 2015 Obama FCC order reducing the Internet to a regulated public utility under Title II of the 1934 Communications Act was marketed as protecting net neutrality - even though the DC Circuit Court of Appeals expressly held that any ISP that blocked or filtered web traffic would be completely exempt from the rules. The apocalyptic claims from the left that the repeal of Title II - which took effect on June 11 - would herald the end of net neutrality and the destruction of the Internet are therefore obviously absurd hyperbole. Especially considering that we have simply returned to the same regulatory ...

Grizzly bears in our oldest national park are not safe

"The National Parks do not suffice as a means of perpetuating the larger carnivores; witness the precarious status of the grizzly bear." These words were published in 1949 in Aldo Leopold's "A Sand County ALMANAC," which influenced the modern environmental movement. Seventy years later, the insight remains true.
