Gillum’s Island Caper

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is planning on movin’ on up to the West Side, to the deluxe governor’s mansion on the other side of town. Gillum is the Democratic nominee in the Florida governor’s’ race. Representing the Marxist wing of the Democratic party—pretty much the only wing of the party these days—Gillum’s far-out views instantly […]

Assault on Aisle Three!

  Big news. You might have heard about this. It was all over the TV. A woman went public with a claim that a young man sexually assaulted her. No, this isn’t about Christine Blasey Ford and her dubious claims against Brett Kavanaugh. And this incident didn’t happen a long time ago in a house […]

We Have a Word for People Like You . . .

It used to be cool to be cool in high school. “Grease” was the word, and Danny Zuko was the guy. He was the guy every other guy wanted to be like. And Olivia Newton John’s Sandy was the girl the other girls wished they could infect with a severe case of the cooties, so […]

When Susan Met Christine

Most women, at one time or another, have faked it.” So said Sally to Harry. Sally never met Christine Blasey Ford, but she was exactly right. Yet, when the Senate Judiciary Committee met Christine, all we heard—both from Democrats and Republicans—was how credible she was. Why? Mainly because the loony #Resistance insisted that women never […]

The Last Supper Redux

Southern California residents are familiar with the Pageant of the Masters that takes place each summer in Laguna Beach. The pageant is a performance where “art comes to life.” Real live people pose as famous works of art, looking exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces—same setting, same costumes, and so on. Performances ran each […]

How Strange It Is!

If the kids on “Stranger Things” could find their way through The Upside Down, it’s not such a strange thing for a 14-year-old boy to turn Vermont’s gubernatorial primary upside down. Ethan Sonneborn is too young to vote, but in the great state of Vermont, he could still run for governor. So he did. Alas, Ethan […]

Brett Kavanaugh’s America

There’s so much being said about Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s choice for the Supreme Court. How can anyone keep up? If you’re reading American Greatness, you’ve probably read about the judge’s impeccable credentials and character. And if you saw Kavanaugh address the press at the White House after the president introduced him, you would have […]

Declaration of Independence: New and Improved

Democrats, looking to burnish their patriotic bona fides—a high priority for them, what with a new Gallup poll indicating only 32 percent of their flock are “extremely proud” to be Americans—are using the week’s Independence Day festivities as a backdrop for displaying their revolutionary spirit. Led by Schumer and Pelosi, affectionately known as Benedict and Arnold, […]

No More Kennedys!

It’s been almost 31 years to the day. On July 1, 1987, President Reagan nominated Robert Bork to the Supreme Court. Finally, a Bork-alike will get the chance to take that seat on the Court. It was Anthony Kennedy, the third choice to fill the Court vacancy, who ended up serving all these years after […]

The Crying Game

So a crying child is big news. And her photo is everywhere. Why? Because it’s Trump’s fault. That’s a familiar refrain, that’s getting a bit old, don’t you think? Children cry. That’s what they do. Anytime, anywhere. They even cry at Disneyland. Ever blow the rent money on a full array of Disney schlock for […]

Modern Camp

Hola madre, hola padre, aquí estoy en Casa San Diego. OK, it’s not summer camp. And we all can feel bad about the immigrant children, separated from parents who brought them into this country illegally. But keep in mind, the parents committed a crime. Unfortunately, when parents do the crime, the kids do the time. […]

Where Have You Gone, Don Corleone?

Robert De Niro is not in a position to make the president of the United States an offer he can’t refuse. Although he’d love to. The most he can do is make a suggestion in front of a national TV audience. It turned out to be a short one. “F-Trump. F-Trump.” Not too classy. And […]

Roseanne: A Postmortem

To the tune of Cole Porter’s “Let’s Do It”: Wolf does it, Bee does it Kimmel and Colbert do it They all do it Let’s do it Let’s fire Roseanne . . . *** Partial list of bad words and slurs leftist media types can say about Donald Trump and all Republicans: #%$@_+&*** ++#%$#@##*** ??#%$!!@!*** >>&&#%$@*** […]

Roseanne Got Fired . . . What About the NFL Players Again?

Roseanne Barr just got fired. ABC canceled her show. Roseanne works for a private company. When she tapes her show before a studio audience, she’s not free to make assorted comments, political or otherwise. She can’t do whatever she likes just to make a statement. Remember, freedom of speech doesn’t apply to a private workplace. […]

Good News, Bad News

Good news for free speech advocates: President Trump cannot block anyone from his Twitter account anymore. But now the bad news. NFL players must stand during the playing of the National Anthem. You can’t win them all. If you’re keeping score, that’s one win and one loss for the Left in their never-ending battle to take down […]

Barbarians at the Gate

Who ya gonna believe, the lyin’ media or your own eyes? That isn’t a trick question. If you’ve paid any attention to the Gaza Arabs rioting on Israel’s border, you would have heard that they were participating in peaceful protests. But your own eyes know peaceful when they see it. And what you’re seeing is […]

What’s a Four-Letter Word for ‘Schumer’?

He was against it before he was for it. These are the words of Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) in August 2015, when Obama was president: I will vote to disapprove the agreement . . . It is because I believe Iran will not change, and under this agreement it will be able to achieve its […]

#NoMoreApologies

Does anyone say “department store” anymore? If you’re a Millennial or maybe even a tad older, you may not even be aware of what a department store is. If you’re thinking, Walmart or Target, or even Kohl’s, think again. Until the 1970s or so, department stores were grand affairs; multi-story edifices, arranged in “departments,” and […]
