Opinion: Hoping for return of simple pleasures

Don’t tell the people in charge, but my friend’s wife is a member of the L.A. resistance. She’s been regularly going out into the underground economy to get her hair done. She’s been meeting with her hairdresser at an undisclosed location...

Opinion: Coronavirus deadlier to businesses

The disease experts and the panic-pushing media initially scared the pants off California’s 40 million people with their predictions about the death toll of the coronavirus pandemic. They said 25 million people in the state would become infected...

Opinion: Protesters are American heroes

A month ago I said it will be the public that makes the decision to reopen America, not the government. It took too long, but that’s exactly what has happened. From the beaches of Southern California and Florida to the state capitals of Michigan...

Opinion: Coronavirus reaction overblown

California was well down the road to becoming a Bernie Sanders-model socialist state when the coronavirus crisis came along. But fighting COVID-19 and slowing its spread gave “liberal” Gov. Gavin Newsom a perfect excuse to unleash his inner...

 

Opinion: Politicians scarier than COVID-19

I don’t know what daily life is like during our Great National Shutdown in states like Pennsylvania, where I hear golfing is verboten, all liquor stores are closed and masks must be worn into retail stores. But out here in sprawling Los Angeles,...

 

Opinion: School break could put students ahead

What’s the use of living in sunny L.A.? It’s bad enough it has been raining. Now I have a mayor, Eric Garcetti, telling me I’m not allowed to go out of my house on Easter weekend. Garcetti holds daily press conferences to update the local...

Opinion: Trump not at fault for shortages

It’s lucky I’m being such a good American and sheltering at home. Every day I’ve been able to watch President Trump’s coronavirus White House press briefings and the press conferences of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and California Gov. Gavin...

 

Trump not to blame for COVID-19

Every 4-year-old knows the official coronavirus drill by now. Wash your hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes and don’t touch your face. And also practice “social distancing,” stay away from large crowds and especially stay away from...

 

Real virus threat the political left

There’s a virus threatening the health of America, all right. But it’s not new, not from a foreign country and it’s not the coronavirus. The virus Americans need to fear the most today is the political left. The Pelosi-Schumer Democrats and the...

Media sensationalizing coronavirus

Two weeks ago, I was happily sailing on a huge cruise ship in the Indian Ocean. My wife Colleen is a travel agent and I was tagging along with her and her group on a Celebrity Cruise Line ship as it sailed from Dubai to Singapore and back with 2,300...

 

Trump still winning Dem debates

I never thought I’d feel sorry for a billionaire — a $60 billion billionaire. But watching Mike Bloomberg getting beat up in the Democrat debate in Vegas on Wednesday night was almost tragic. It was like watching an old boxer who gets clocked...

 

Busy week leaves Trump on top

It started Sunday night with an exciting and hard-fought Super Bowl game, which I was happy to see end with the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the San Francisco 49ers. Then the next day came the Iowa caucus, aka the Democrat Party’s Iowa fiasco. For...

 

Nothing new about policy differences

It doesn’t matter whether the impeachment trial of President Trump is already over by the time you read this, or it drags on for months. Two-thirds of the U.S. Senate is never going to find the president guilty of the House Democrats’ vague and...

 

Democrats forgetting their history

I must have said it a dozen times since the Democrats’ impeachment miniseries took over our televisions, but I’ll say it again. The Democrats and their allies in the liberal media think history began this morning when they rolled out of the left...

 

Impeachment bombshell just a dud

You’re excused if you didn’t hear about the latest impeachment “bombshell” that exploded in the media on Wednesday. Wednesday, after all, was a really crowded big-news day. It was the super-duper historic day when Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s...

 

Keep partisan politics out of holidays

What a great holiday season it is. Know why? Congress is on vacation, which means all the rest of us get a break from politics. We’re in the middle of what amounts to a national Christmas ceasefire in our never-ending, 24/7 political civil war....

 

Dems continue getting nowhere

Did anyone else not watch the Democrat presidential debate on TV Thursday night? I thought so. After three months of watching Saint Nancy Pelosi and her House Democrats stage their solemn impeachment circus, I decided to skip the latest...

 

Dems lowering bar on impeachment

Forget the phony solemnity about the Constitution and the rule of law. Forget the malarkey about the president committing high crimes and misdemeanors. We all know the real reasons Democrats are hell-bent on impeaching Donald Trump. It’s because...

 

Education reforms moving forward

Impeach! Impeach! Impeach! Removing Donald Trump from office before he can get re-elected is the only thing in Washington that Democrats and the national media really care about. But while Thelma Pelosi and Louise Nadler speed down their...

 

Trump accusations small potatoes

“Laws are like sausages,” Otto von Bismarck supposedly said. “It is better not to see them being made.” Suffering through far too many hours of the House impeachment reminded me of the truth of that political quip. Making laws is a dirty,...

 

Impeachment going nowhere fast

Spoiler alert. The Democrats’ big dream of impeaching President Trump is going nowhere. Act I of the pathetic Trump impeachment hearings they are staging in the House for the next week was not just an obvious sham, it was a political bust that is...

 

We need more people able to adopt

If you’re a young child trapped in our infamous foster care system, your future is bleak. It’s likely that you’ll bounce around to more than a dozen foster homes until you “age out” at 18 and are allowed to live on your own. Then, within...

 

Monopolies bad for energy consumers

Tens of thousands of acres scorched by unstoppable wildfires. Thousands of people evacuated from their homes near San Francisco and Los Angeles. Electricity shut off to millions to prevent hurricane-strength Santa Ana winds from downing transmission...

 

Better off getting out of Middle East

President Trump says he wants to get our troops out of the “blood-stained sand” of the Middle East. Most sane Americans would agree with that goal and hope he’s successful. Unfortunately, the people in charge of our foreign policy are not...

 

Trump winner of Dems' debate

Twelve presidential wannabes standing in a row on stage for three hours. Three friendly liberal journalists under-handing softball questions to them. Tons of BS about free government healthcare and why Trump should be impeached. Until the personal...
