All is well in Trumplandia

EAST PENNSBORO TWP, Pa. - President Donald Trump's approval ratings might be in the tank and his legislative agenda might be foundering on Capitol Hill, but don't try asking Dan Mosel if he has a case of buyer's remorse.

‘Climate Science’ isn’t science; it’s religion

The Heartland Institute's 12th International Conference on Climate Change was nothing like I expected. When joining a group described in pejorative terms as "deniers," one would expect to see furtive movements and disreputable haircuts, yet the crowd displayed good humor and a welcoming attitude.

Trump’s Still Winning Bigly

If you were watching cable news over the weekend, you might have been tempted to think that, with the defeat-for-now of healthcare reform, President Donald Trump's presidency was seriously on the rocks.

Trump boosts cable’s fortunes

During the campaign, Donald Trump famously conceded that he gets much of his information about world affairs from "the shows." Incredibly, the impact made on Trump's thinking by what he sees on television is even more profound now that he's the leader of the free world.

Sears, Kmart, malls: My New Worry List

My wife and I met on a blind date at a Bonanza restaurant in a nearby shopping mall nearly 32 years ago, so it was dismaying to drop in on the same mall on a recent Saturday afternoon. Store after store was unoccupied, customers were few and far between and a general "ghostly" ambience prevailed.

The head of Trump University got schooled

It has been assailed as the end of democracy. Vilified as a form of slavery. Denigrated, denounced and disparaged. But like a blind, three-legged dog named "Lucky," against all odds, the Affordable Care Act has survived and remains the law of the land.

Trump Should End Illegal Obamacare Exemption

The House effort to repeal and replace Obamacare flamed out in spectacular fashion and leaders in Congress seem content to move on to other issues. But the American people continue to suffer with skyrocketing premiums and ever-smaller provider networks.

Big week for taking the temperature of Trump

The Claremont Review of Books has always been more tolerant of the Trump phenomena than the deep thinkers at the National Review. This was particularly evident last week at Claremont's "Recovering American Conservatism" panel.

Farewell JC Penney's--You were more than a store to me

When the news that JC Penney's was closing 300 stores broke, I felt a sense of dread come over me. A couple clicks on my laptop and my suspicions were confirmed. "They are closing that Great Bend JC Penney's store," I remarked to my wife Lori who was in the kitchen. She looked over to me - "The store by the courthouse? How sad. Where will you get your underwear now?"
