Friday, July 22, 2016 -- Trump Vows To Make America Great Again

"Make America Great Again"

Last night, Donald J. Trump formally accepted the Republican Party's nomination for president of the United States. In doing so, he becomes the first major party nominee without elected political experience since General Dwight Eisenhower won the Republican nomination in 1952.

I have been to many conventions. And this one was unlike any other. The convention hall last night was electric. Trump...

Thursday, July 21, 2016 -- Pence's Outstanding Performance, Cruz Bombs Convention, Fallout

Pence's Outstanding Performance

Indiana Governor Mike Pence took the stage last night for what to date was the biggest moment of his political life. Few people are ever asked to make such an important speech -- accepting their party's nomination for vice president of the United States.

Coming on the heels of the remarks by Senator Ted Cruz, which I will address in a moment, the stakes were...

Wednesday, July 20, 2016 -- Day Two, Cruz Goes To Cleveland, Pence Takes The Stage

Day Two

The theme of Day Two at the Republican National Convention was "Making America Work Again." The evening featured some incredible speeches. For example, Donald Trump, Jr. was very impressive and may have his own political future ahead!

His remarks went a long way, in my opinion, toward cementing Trump's connection with Middle America and the blue-collar workers who gave Ronald Reagan two landslide...

Jihad On A Train

Europe has suffered another jihadist attack. Yesterday, Muhammad Riyad, a 17 year-old refugee from Afghanistan, attacked 18 people with a knife and an ax. Fortunately, no one on the train was killed. But five people were critically injured and two are reportedly "clinging to life." German police shot and killed Riyad.

An ISIS flag was found at his home,...

War On Cops

The war against police in America continues. Yesterday morning, three Baton Rouge officers were gunned down by a former Marine, Gavin Long, who also went by the name "Cosmo Setepenra." Long carried out the assassinations on his 29th birthday. Three other officers were injured in the attack.

Responding to the shooting, Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said, "...

Terror In Nice

France has once again been struck by radical Islamic supremacists. A jihadist drove a semi through a crowd in Nice, in southern France, during Bastille Day fireworks celebrations. At least 84 people were killed, including 10 children. More than 50 children were hurt and are being treated in hospitals. Many are in critical condition.

The driver, Mohamed Lahouaiej...

Trump To Pence: You're Hired!

Around lunchtime today, Washington media exploded with unconfirmed reports that Donald Trump had selected Indiana Governor Mike Pence to be his vice presidential running mate.

A formal announcement won't come until tomorrow, but if the reports are accurate, I am thrilled with Mr. Trump's most important hire!

I have known Mike Pence for many years...

Wednesday, July 13, 2016 -- Obama Disses Police, The Left's War On Cops, Good News, 2016 Update

Obama Disses Police

President Obama's speech at yesterday's memorial service for the five slain Dallas police officers had a number of good moments, as you would hope and expect of any president. Naturally, he praised their service. But it wasn't long before his remarks took a sharp left turn.

Obama again lectured the country about racism and ran through a check-list of the left's...

Tuesday, July 12, 2016 -- Clueless Or Ignorant, Trump Embraces Law & Order, Stand With Israel

Clueless Or Ignorant?

Progressives and socialists like the president constantly come to conclusions about the motives of whole groups of people with virtually no proof to justify their views. For example, when working class Christians did not rally to Obama's banner in 2008, he said it was because they were bitter and clung to their guns and Bibles.

If a professor has a run-in with the police, as...
