My new column sees hope for real immigration reform if president continues bold initiatives

Politics – Down and Dirty

The last two years have seen phenomenal progress by President Trump on many fronts — taxes, jobs, tariffs, foreign policy to name a few. But there has been one area where he has been stymied — immigration, his signature issue. There are signs that the president is now moving vigorously toward solving that problem too,


Anti-Semitic hatred cannot be tolerated by anyone

Politics – Down and Dirty

It is scary beyond belief that anti-Semitism has reared its ugly head again in the United States, this time with fatal results. A 19-year-old man, as yet unidentified, shot and killed a woman at the Chabad Synagogue in Poway, California, and wounded three others including the rabbi. Inexplicably, after fleeing he called 911 and basically

AP confused about who is under attack in Sri Lanka

Politics – Down and Dirty

Color me confused. I read the AP headline and just shook my head. “Sri Lanka Muslims brave militant threats for Friday prayers.” What’s that all about, I wondered. It was Christians who were attacked on Easter Sunday, not Muslims, right? Did someone threaten the Muslims in Sri Lanka in response to the Easter attacks? I

Trump honors three gun heroes at NRA convention

Politics – Down and Dirty

Whenever the Fake News Media talks about guns, you are likely going to hear about gun victims — the victims of school shootings, workplace violence or random shootings — but President Trump showed the other side of the gun to the American people Friday when he spoke to the National Rifle Association. Instead of talking

President Trump to America: ‘You’re doing a great job!’

Politics – Down and Dirty

Candidate Trump was wrong about one thing. We will never get tired of winning! Today Trump visited the NRA convention as part of his post Mueller Witch Hunt victory lap, and every supporter of President Trump was there with him in spirit when he said that “Our nation is greater today than it has ever

Collusion was matador Mueller’s ‘red flag’ to taunt Trump into obstruction trap. He failed

Politics – Down and Dirty

Leave it to Victor Davis Hanson to distill two years of Democratic harassment of President Trump into just the right two words: “Pious hypocrisy.” The historian and political analyst wrote this in his new column: “The problem with the Muller investigation, and with former intelligence officials such as Brennan, Clapper, Comey and McCabe, is pious

‘Hogan’s Zeroes’ and other Never Trumpers

Politics – Down and Dirty

Do you suppose a noble horse like Secretariat ever gets tired of swatting at flies with its tail? That must be what President Trump feels like when yet another fly or gnat takes aim at him. The latest is Gov. Larry (“Who?”) Hogan of Maryland — a Republican nonentity who apparently has delusions of grandeur.

Liz Warren’s Big Bribe for Budding Socialists!

Politics – Down and Dirty

I thought I would debunk Elizabeth Warren as a legitimate presidential candidate, but what’s the point when she does it so well herself! Latest case in point is her “plan” (read “bribe to voters”) to cancel virtually all student load debt and provide “universal free college.” Call it Socialism 101: Get ’em young and you’ve
