Despite Terrorism Ties, Obama Won't Acknowledge the Obvious

The mass murders in Orlando shouldn't be blamed on inadequate gun control laws, described as a lone wolf attack, characterized as a homegrown terrorist tragedy or dismissed as the act of a crazed hate crime perpetrator. Orlando represents a war on America, and the culprit is President Obama and his shackling of law enforcement in favor of political correctness.

The Long History of Militant Islam

"The ambassador answered us that...it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise."

Fascism: A Bipartisan Affliction

If neoconservatives and progressives truly understood fascism, they would stop using the word as a smear term. That is because both groups, along with most political figures and commentators, embrace fascist ideas and policies.

You're Either With Trump, Or Against Him

So U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks Donald Trump's comments about the Mexican heritage of a federal judge hearing a civil case against him are an example of "textbook racism," but he won't rescind his endorsement of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee?

Censorship Is More Dangerous Than Hate Speech

Someone needs to tell Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, YouTube and the European Union that the only way to stop a bad guy's speech is to counter it with a good guy's speech, not censor it.

Kansas Medicaid cuts threaten financial health of hospitals, physician practices

Since Gov. Sam Brownback announced his solution to the state's budget problem, which includes significant cuts in KanCare, the state's Medicaid program, there has been a flurry of articles with inaccurate or incomplete information, and as a physician with firsthand knowledge of the consequences we're facing, I want to set the record straight.

Where's the Stimulus Funding for Infrastructure?

While traveling across the country with your kids this summer, be sure to buckle-up and do your best to overlook all the potholes and crumbling bridges out there. Even if funding was available, things will probably remain in disrepair until your kids are grown, thanks to big government regulations and red tape.

Hard to Believe It's Come Down to Hillary or Trump

Every four years our nation's electoral eccentricities escalate exponentially and people throw up their hands and shout, "you know, every election cycle is wacky, but especially this one." But especially this one! With this one, the narrative changes faster than the score of a Wiffle Ball game played with aluminum bats. It's an election with the attention span of high-speed lint. It's an 18 month-long squirrel scamper.

The Keynesians Stole The Jobs

Late last week the markets were shocked by a surprisingly bad May jobs report - the worst monthly report in nearly six years. The experts expected the U.S. economy to add 160,000 jobs in May, but it turns out only 38,000 jobs were added. And to make matters worse, 13,000 of those 38,000 were government jobs! Adding more government employees is a drain on the economy, not a measure of economic growth. Incredibly, there are more than 102 million people who are either unemployed or are no longer looking for work.
