Opinion: Dear social media: Best path to truth bathed in sunshine

The Los Angeles Times reported last week that several Republicans have complained Facebook and Twitter are interfering with the presidential election. The social media giants did this, supposedly, by...

Opinion: Russians not root of all troubles

The Russians haven’t loomed so large as a sinister hand influencing the course of American society since the Red Scares of the 20th century. Then, it was largely the right that warned of Russian...

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: Administration's failures mostly self-inflicted

I’m convinced Jared Kushner is responsible for creating the Trump Administration HR operation that’s the Chernobyl of Human Resources. Once he pushed Chris Christie out, the resulting multitude of personnel mistakes belong to him. It’s just...

Opinion: Trump performance a fiery train wreck

If Donald Trump were a movie scene, he’d be the fiery train wreck in “The Fugitive,” and U.S. Marshal Tommy Lee Jones would be cruising through the carnage saying, “My my my. What. A....

 

Opinion: Pro-life voices may not win, but we will be heard

Earlier this month, I passed by a small group of people outside a Planned Parenthood building in Philadelphia praying in the rain, heads bowed and exposed to the fine mist from heaven. Even though I...

 

McManigal: Costs are worth living in liberty

The continuing hysteria over COVID-19 reminds me of the website warning of the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO). The website correctly points out that DHMO is found in all our food, sometimes as...

 

Shelburne: Statistics may vary, but God is 100 percent

Death. There seems to have been a lot of it lately, at least in my experience. Funerals have been the order of the day. I know. Your first thought will likely be of COVID-19 deaths. According to...

 

McDonald: Wearing masks common courtesy

So here we are, entering another wave of COVID-19 infections. Dramatic increases are returning to most states, including New Mexico, where the number of daily infections has been setting records. It’s going to be a long winter. Hopefully, we’re...

 

Editorial: Best government secures blessings of liberty for all

Longtime readers have seen this editorial before, so please excuse the repetition. But it’s important: Our newspaper does not endorse political candidates. That’s primarily because few reflect the core values of limited government. Those seeking...

 

Opinion: Limiting ballot drop-off sites poor decision

Just because something is legal doesn’t mean it is right. A federal appeals court ruled Monday that Texas can limit counties to one mail ballot drop-off site. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals concluded...

Opinion: Barrett unlikely to throw out ACA

Amy Coney Barrett has accomplished many things in her career. Becoming an authority or a policy maker on healthcare isn’t one of them. At Notre Dame, she was a professor at the law school, not at...

 

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: Falling back on Hillary sign of weakness

Maybe you remember this Trump gem from 2016: “I think (Hillary) was out there with classified information. She was giving it to anybody. And the FBI did nothing about it … The top people were...

 

Opinion: Kamala Harris' only standout trait is her novelty

When Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his running mate a couple of months ago, it was historic. Third woman, first “woman of color” as we keep being reminded, first “child born of immigrants,...

 

Letters to the editor - Oct. 18

It’s time to let youth play again I will not stop reminding of the fact that in March, we were told 14 days to flatten the curve. At that time it was social distance or wear a mask. Not both. Up until COVID-19, quarantine and isolation was for the...

 

Opinion: To regain trust transparency the best choice

Secrecy fuels suspicion. It’s natural to wonder what happens behind closed doors. After immense public pressure from activists and politicians as well as a court motion by an unidentified juror, Kentucky’s attorney general elected to release a...

 

Opinion: Every four years, the same old thing

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in an infinite presidential time loop? Every four years I watch it repeat, but no one else seems to notice. Like the movie Groundhog Day, where the protagonist...

 

Opinion: Green initiatives are no-brainer

Joe Biden says we’re in a “battle for the soul of our nation.” I think he’s right. Never in my lifetime have the differences been so stark and threatening. But what about New Mexico? Is this an epic election year or just another round of...

 

Mom's letter-writing legacy tugs my heartstrings

This was about the time each year of my mother’s life that she started working on her Christmas letters. Something about the leaves changing and the nights growing cooler threw her into her annual...

 

Tolerance a plastic idol compared to God's love

Tolerance. I find myself wondering if the word, these days a sickly, anemic, anorexic wraith of a word barely staggering around on its wobbly feet — and yet incredibly loud despite its weakness ...

 

Opinion: This time, governor deserves criticism - let the kids play

It's easy to be mad at New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. She forced private businesses to close or limit interaction with customers. She said churches were dangerous places to gather. She...

Opinion: Barrett not scary as left believes

The Supreme Court fight of the century is, so far, a fizzle. The ratio of progressive outrage over the nomination of federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett to supposed reasons that the U.S. Senate...

 

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: Power, choice should remain with people

The upcoming election is important to every New Mexican who deserves to know the truth before casting their vote. There is an amendment to the constitution of the state of New Mexico on the ballot in November and voters will decide whether to give...
