DES MOINES, Iowa — In tonight’s performance of the presidential campaign, the role of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will be played by her husband, Bruce Mann.

It doesn’t matter whether the impeachment trial of President Trump is already over or it drags on for months.

2020欧洲外围赛I love Ireland for its natural beauty, its people, its food (some of it), its music, its writers and especially its elections, which are shorter, less costly and designed to engage citizens and boost voter turnout.

This isn’t the column I had intended on writing this week. I had intended to write something about the impeachment hearings regarding the President of the United States. 

Bernie Sanders’ campaign recently stabbed Elizabeth Warren in the back. She was the Vermont senator’s comrade in arms. It also threw a pack of lies at Joe Biden, tarring him as corrupt with zero evidence. As former Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin told Politico, Sanders “will play dirty.” The Demo…

I must have said it a dozen times since the Democrats’ impeachment miniseries took over our televisions, but I’ll say it again.

2020欧洲外围赛The contrast could not have been starker. One picture showed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi smiling as she signed (with numerous pens) two articles of impeachment against President Trump. She passed out the pens like souvenirs to fellow Democrats. They were embossed in gold with her signature an…

It needs pointing out that Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All plan bears little resemblance to Medicare. The Vermont senator undoubtedly exploits the word "Medicare" to obscure the radicalness of his single-payer proposal. Medicare, after all, is very popular.

During the American Revolution, Mordecai Sheftall was the highest ranking Jewish officer in the Continental Army, serving as the deputy commissary of issues (supplies) for the Southern Department of the war. 

It’s nearly impossible to have even a short conversation with a college administrator, politician or chief executive without the words diversity and inclusion dropping from their lips. Diversity and inclusion appear to be the end-all and be-all of their existence. So, I thought I’d begin thi…

2020欧洲外围赛Tuesday’s event was supposed to be the big one, the final showdown before actual voting begins. If, like me, you’ve watched every minute of every Democratic debate so far — and here’s wishing we’d all get a life — you know the unfortunate truths:

2020欧洲外围赛House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s strategy of holding on to the two weak articles of impeachment against President Trump was starting to rattle some Democrats, who felt they were losing the political battle. Last Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told reporters, “If we’re going to do it, sh…

In March 2020, the Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Louisiana’s new abortion law, which requires that physicians doing abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.

2020欧洲外围赛We folks who call Thomasville and Thomas County home are very proud of how we’ve collectively preserved a lot of our local history for everyone who is interested in learning, and thusly perpetuating it for generations yet to come. 

Throughout this unsettling conflict with Iran, Joe Biden has stood out as a calming Democratic voice, speaking of the stakes and challenges with deep knowledge of foreign policy. Just another reason for activists on the left backing Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren to lose their minds.

2020欧洲外围赛Another session of the General Assembly is upon us. This is an election year and there will be more posturing under the Gold Dome than a prima ballerina in a performance of “Swan Lake.”

2020欧洲外围赛“Find the cost of freedom,” wrote Stephen Stills in 1970 upon visiting a Civil War site. Those who fought and died to defend our freedoms are indeed “buried in the ground” as Stills and company sang.

The muted reaction of leading Democratic politicians to the elimination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani reinforces my sense of what divides our country and differentiates the two parties.

Prior to Iran’s missile attacks on U.S. bases inside Iraq, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said, “We are not seeking war with Iran, but we are prepared to finish one.” Esper said the U.S. prefers a “diplomatic” solution to the escalation of tensions in the region.

2020欧洲外围赛George W. Bush and Barack Obama both had Gen. Qassem Soleimani in their gunsights. Neither ordered the trigger pulled because of the enormous risks involved in killing one of Iran’s top leaders. In listing the possible responses to recent Iranian provocations, U.S. military commanders told P…

A voter may dislike a black, homosexual or female candidate, but it’s not likely that he would openly admit it. However, diversity-crazed leftist/progressive Democrats have openly condemned the physical characteristics of some of their 2020 presidential candidates. Joe Biden and Bernie Sande…

2020欧洲外围赛The Pew Research Center reports among its major findings in 2019 a dramatic drop in Americans identifying as Christian.

It can be useful and instructive to observe the turning of a decade by looking back on what life was like in America a mere 100 years ago.

2020欧洲外围赛In the last 20 or so years, we have all seen the seeds of division germinate and grow within America. Hyper-partisanship has created an “us vs. them” mindset that in some ways threatens our very stability as a nation. 

If you’re celebrating a recent federal appellate court ruling that overturned language in the Affordable Care Act requiring you to have health insurance or pay a penalty, you may want to put away the party favors.

2020欧洲外围赛“In the bleak mid-winter” of Christina Rossetti’s 1872 poem, Salvation Army bells and tinnitus warring for headspace, I am haunted by those who did not get to see December cast its chill upon the northern latitudes once more.

One of the more remarkable Christmas stories in recorded history came from the heart of one of our most horrific wars. 

2020欧洲外围赛Have you thought about what kind of difference you have made in this world by your presence here? Or could make? Or should make? Dr. Bill Burch has stepped into the large footprints left behind by the retired Dr. Gil Watson, the World’s Greatest Preacher, and has shown without doubt that he …

Maybe it’s campaign fatigue or the time of year, but TV ratings for the Democrats’ last two debates fell precipitously and the prospects for improvement in the Dec. 19 event were dim. Part of the problem is process. As Republicans learned in 2016, crowded debate stages and uneven moderating …

Democratic candidates offer two basic approaches to raising revenues for public programs. One is grand opera — accusing the wealthy of greed (Bernie Sanders) and malice, that is, “leaving everyone else behind” (Elizabeth Warren). For this bad behavior, there must be punishment in the form of…

I shared last week some of my earliest December memories. Today I want to focus on those bastions of my childhood holiday entertainment, the Christmas TV shows. 

2020欧洲外围赛While the congressional Social Democrats dither over two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and ignore the real issues of the day, the President continues working for the American people as evidenced by the latest stratospheric economic numbers.

Here are several questions for biologists and medical professionals: If a person is found to have XY chromosomes (heterogametic sex), does a designation as female on his birth certificate, driver’s license or Social Security card override the chromosomal evidence? Similarly, if a person is f…
