75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor

The events of the past few minutes coursed through John Anderson's mind like the hellish nightmare that it was. He had been assigned to set up chairs on the ship's main deck for the Sunday morning worship service. His brother Jake and many others were still sound asleep below deck on a serene Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor.

Ohio State Stabbing and the Rise of Immigrant-Related Terrorism

As President Obama once said, "Elections have consequences." Consequences, indeed. Eight years of a weak Obama administration emboldened our enemy, inspiring the rise of terrorism domestically and abroad, making it risky for everyday Americans to do everyday things.

Media Unwilling to Understand Why America Voted for Trump

The election of Donald Trump sent a considerable chunk of the media into a navel-gazing funk, struggling to discover what went so wrong that a politically inexperienced billionaire businessman could defeat a woman who spent her adult life holding responsible positions in and around government.

To Really ‘Make America Great Again,’ End the Fed!

Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher recently gave a speech identifying the Federal Reserve's easy money/low interest rate policies as a source of the public anger that propelled Donald Trump into the White House. Mr. Fisher is certainly correct that the Fed's policies have "skewered" the middle class. However, the problem is not specific Fed policies, but the very system of fiat currency managed by a secretive central bank.

Presidential Apprentice

Two months before joining the government in an entry level position, President-elect Donald Trump has been learning the ropes and is busier than a bartender ten minutes before midnight at a Times Square Applebee's on New Year's Eve.

Make our (Costly) Infrastructure Great Again

By his own admission, President-elect Donald Trump is a guy who likes to build stuff: A golf course in Scotland. A hotel in Washington D.C. A great, big beautiful wall on the American border with Mexico.

Trump’s Art of the Spiel

Apparently we were too quick to take Donald Trump at his word during the campaign. After a visit to the White House, a tour of the Capitol and a heart-to-heart with Lesley Stahl, Trump is furiously issuing clarifications. He told Stahl that law-abiding undocumented immigrants are "terrific people," that President Obama is "very smart and very nice," and that Bill Clinton is "very, very, really, very nice."

A Woman’s View

Do you ever consider all the hilarious things that happen in our day to day lives that go right over our heads if we aren't paying attention? We are so consumed with our deadlines, our hardships, our own selves, that we often miss the joy of good laughter.
