Prior to joining the Biden 2020 presidential ticket, Kamala Harris was polling around 2 % – among Democrats – never making it to that first primary, so it comes as no surprise that her most recent poll numbers are even lower than President Biden’s.

Dec. 1 was World AIDS Day, marking 40 years since symptoms were first reported. Over 36 million people have died worldwide from AIDS-related illnesses. The death rate is slowing as effective drug treatments gain wider distribution. But the inequity that long fueled the AIDS epidemic still ex…

This week, governments around the globe spun into full-scale panic thanks to the revelation of the so-called omicron variant of COVID-19. As of this writing, we know that omicron is likely more transmissible than prior variants. We have no evidence, however, that omicron is more deadly. To t…

The phrase “IN GOD WE TRUST” was not seen on our currency until 1864. And the words “under God” were wedged into the pledge of allegiance in 1954, nearly 200 years after the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and the Federalist Papers were written. These insertions, these aftertho…

President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on our nation’s businesses and their employees is a misguided and unconstitutional attempt to dictate Americans’ personal health decisions. That is why we are fighting this overreaching mandate through the Congressional Review Act, the official process f…

“In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.” – Laurence J. Peter.

The holiday season has officially started in Sayre with the fantastic parade put on by Sayre Borough under the leadership of David Jarrett and his amazing team. I have participated in the parade for the past 23 years and have seen a couple of generations of children happy and excited as the …

Thomas Jefferson is on the outs. Columbus Day is a shadow of its former self. And Thanksgiving, perhaps most consequently, is under pressure. If this most American holiday is ever downgraded from its honored place on the national calendar, it will speak of a profound change in our self-definition.

The less than ideal outcome of the latest climate talks in Scotland reminds us of an inconvenient truth: as yet there is no human authority on Earth powerful enough to enforce the preservation of the commons. Would any country seriously consider military invasion to stop Brazilian deforestat…

While Donald Trump was president, the left and their puppets in the media told us he was a bully and feigned outrage at his “mean” tweets. But today, voters across America are seeing that whatever Democrats accuse others of, they are often guilty of themselves.

Virginia and New Jersey’s recent elections should have been a landslide.

Owners of the Apple Watch might be walking around with stolen goods strapped to their wrist. In a complaint filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission this summer, medical device firm Masimo Corporation accuses Apple of stealing patented technology for measuring blood oxygen levels a…

It ought to be possible to operate a retail store in one of America’s largest and most iconic cities, but this most basic commercial proposition is in doubt in San Francisco.

Wampanoag. Massachusett. Nipmuc. Mohegan. Pequot. Narragansett. Passamaquoddy. Mi’kmaq. These are just some of the indigenous nations of the land now called New England, the home of that original Thanksgiving dinner that occurred 400 years ago, in the fall of 1621. The myth of that shared me…

WASHINGTON -- As someone who served six years in the White House, I have a deep respect for the office of the presidency -- even when I don’t particularly like or respect the current occupant.

Like a gravitational field, there’s a narrative that exerts a powerful pull on U.S. immigration policy. It features hordes of migrants besieging our southern border, bringing crime, and lured (as the latest version goes) by erratic border enforcement and a lenient Biden administration.

This week, a 39-year-old black man in Waukesha, Wisconsin, plowed a maroon Ford Escape into a Christmas parade of children and older women. Five people were killed and another 48 were injured. The motive of the suspect is unknown; if the media have their way, it will remain that way. The med…

It’s been less than a year since Jan. 6, 2021, and we have not even declared it a national holiday. That could be because there’s nothing to celebrate. Plus, there’s a bunch of long weekends already squeezed in a short space of time. Besides, we’ll get to a four-day workweek soon enough, and…

Amid all the flag-waving, chants of “USA, USA,” and other nationalist hoopla that characterize mainstream politics in the United States, it’s easy to miss the fact that most Americans favor global governance. 

“It seems clear to me we need to establish some common-sense guardrails,” President Biden told President Xi Jinping in their November 16 virtual summit. Xi reportedly replied to his “old friend” with a metaphor about boats finding their way together through rough waters.

It’s time for the annual report card of the Biden administration. First and foremost, it’s every president and vice president’s duty to protect the homeland and its citizens’ freedoms enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. On these fronts, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris get F’s for failing to act …

As you prepare to anchor around that Thanksgiving Day table don’t forget to throw a lifeline to the leftists of the family.

According to the media, Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist. According to the media, Kyle Rittenhouse was an active shooter. According to the media, Kyle Rittenhouse was a murderer.

It was called “Striketober.” While politicians in Washington bickered over infrastructure, jobs, and the social safety net, unionized workers across the heartland went on strike to get their fair share directly.

In 1931, smack dab at the beginning of the Great Depression (although, when was any depression “great”?), it was a big hit: “Brother Can You Spare a Dime?” Today, 90 years later, what with inflation, the 10 cents of yesteryear has a purchasing power of $1.82, so the song in 2021 would be “Br…

The experience of the last Democratic president who presided over a significant bout of inflation wasn’t a happy one, and if the Biden White House isn’t haunted by that precedent, it isn’t paying attention.

Parents who never imagined running for office battled to win seats on local school boards last week; they won some, but lost many. Their fiercest opponents were the teachers unions.

Throughout our fruited plain, once routine school board meetings have devolved into a 21st century “Gong Show” thanks to the COVID shutdown last year.

President Joe Biden wants to bring the same discerning, common-sensical governing style to American child care that has his job approval rating in the low 40s.

Global warming causes global swarming. In 2018, Indian Ocean cyclones hit Oman and Yemen, creating conditions for an outbreak of desert locusts. Swarms grew throughout 2019 and 2020, two of the hottest years on record. Swarms with 80 million insects have swept across Ethiopia, Eritrea, and S…

In 1958, British sociologist Michael Young coined the term “meritocracy” in his satirical novel, called “The Rise of the Meritocracy.” Its point was simple: When intelligence and effort are selected by any society as the basis for success or failure, those with such merit begin to comprise t…

My Dad skated for the Minnesota Gophers hockey team after he finally got done serving “for the duration” in World War II in the Philippines. So, of course, he was our coach as we PeeWees tried to learn to play hockey in Minnesota in the late 1950s. As a coach, one of his favorite go-to instr…

It’s time to dust off my fantasy live shot. 

I live near Middlefield, Ohio, the center of the fourth largest Amish settlement in America. I regularly see the horse and buggy operations on the road. Who am I to tell these people that I know better about how they should live than they do? Very few Amish people are getting the COVID vacci…

November 2 was a boffo night for the Republican Party, and not such a great night for Donald Trump.
