Opinion: Trump's legacy tearing down Capitol

Opinion: Hard to feel optimistic about 2021

Opinion: Don't shed any tears for Congress

Christmas in California has effectively been canceled by Emperor Gavin Newsom. And now it looks like here in L.A. we’re going to be locked in our basements by the local yahoos in charge until Februa...

 

Opinion: No escape from L.A. lockdown

Opinion: Golf is a COVID-19 safe activity

The state of California has felt like a minimum-security prison for eight months. In the name of fighting the pandemic and preventing our hospitals from being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients, the pol...

 

Opinion: Holiday rules stupid, unscientific

Californians have suffered greatly in our crazy war against the China virus. Our economy is a wreck. Restaurants are dying off by the hundreds. Schools are half closed. Disneyland is a ghost town....

 

Opinion: China should pay price for virus

Our politicians and leaders still don’t get it. They don’t seem to understand — or care — that China has already declared World War III. The Communist Party thugs who rule China with a heavy...

 

Opinion: GOP has roadmap to more voters

It’s crazy political times like these that I long for how quickly, simply and peacefully the 1980 presidential election ended. That was the year President Jimmy Carter called my father at 5 in the...

 

Opinion: Praying Trump wins big on Tuesday

It doesn’t matter who wins on Tuesday, America is in for big trouble. If it’s Joe Biden, the Democrat Party’s street gangs will celebrate by rioting in the streets. If Donald Trump wins...

 

Opinion: Trump tough, on target, presidential

Listen before you speak. My mother Jane Wyman taught me that sensible lesson a long, long time ago. And based on his fine performance at the second presidential debate on Thursday night, it looks...

 

Opinion: Look back at first woman on court

Watching the Senate confirmation hearing of Amy Coney Barrett reminded me of the promise my father made to my sister Maureen to put the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court. It's a great piece of...

 

Opinion: Up to Trump to win the election

The Kamala Harris-Mike Pence death match will go down in history as another forgettable vice presidential debate, but it had its pluses. It showed us two important things we already knew. It showed...

 

Opinion: Police not to blame for Taylor's death

It didn’t matter what the findings of the Breonna Taylor grand jury were going to be. Black Lives Matters and their sympathizers were well prepared to riot on Wednesday night in Louisville and other...

 

Opinion: Fire season regular feature of California

Lots of people in politics and the media out here in California are blaming global warming for the 26 major wildfires that have killed at least 24, burned more than 3 million acres and destroyed...

 

Opinion: COVID-19 political weapon for Dems

Am I in hell, or just L.A.? The other day it was 121 degrees here. There’s so much smoke in the air from all the wildfires the sun looks like the moon. Everything’s closed because of the...

 

Opinion: No way America full of racists

At least the media haven't politicized the weather reports - yet. Watching the next Category 4 hurricane hit Florida is about all I can stand to see on TV these days. The news and cable talk shows...

 

Opinion: Latest RNC best I've ever watched

Last week’s Republican National Convention was the best I’ve ever watched. The locations and settings were great. Melania did a fine job in the White House Rose Garden. Vice President Mike Pence...

 

Opinion: Hoping to save state's 'gig' workers

I know you’ve been busy binging the exciting coverage of the Democrat National Convention. But have you heard the latest bit of horrible news from the once golden state of California? I don’t...

 

Opinion: Can't keep hiding from COVID-19

It’s the opening of fire season in California. But the biggest threat to the people of the state right now is Gov. Gavin Newsom and his shifting rules about closing businesses and schools to fight...

 

Opinion: A vacation might do you good

At this writing, I’m happy to report I haven’t heard Nancy Pelosi’s name in five days. I haven’t heard President Trump accused of being responsible for 159,000 COVID-19 deaths since last...

 

Opinion: Anarchists are scarier than virus

I have good reasons to be worried about catching the coronavirus. I fit the demographic profile for the most typical victim — I’m 75 and I have a serious medical precondition. And here in Los...

Opinion: Don't want to live in a 'woke' country

Build Back Better. Build Back Better. Build Back Better. Try saying Joe Biden’s clunky campaign slogan three times fast without gagging — or laughing. Biden is obviously cognitively impaired,...
