Dick Polman: White domestic terrorist says ‘no more body parts’
Imagine the Republican freakout if a Syrian Muslim refugee had pumped bullets into a Colorado cop and an Iraq war veteran. But because the deed was done by an all-American misfit flexing his Second Amendment muscle, a white guy who shared the GOP’s hatred of Planned Parenthood,...

Michael Reagan: Trump and RINOs
Donald Trump did wonders for Fox News’ ratings and Megyn Kelly’s star power last week. But “The Donald” didn’t do himself, the Republican Party or the conservative cause any favors. Millions of viewers saw clear evidence that Trump is not a serious Republican candidate...

Donald Kaul: Creeping out of the Foxhole

Diana West: How the GOP establishment plans to steal your election
Almost every anti-establishment firebrand is the same. Elected to break the chokehold that Beltway elites have on the republic, they come to Washington with their constituents’ concerns foremost. They are eager to heave overboard the dead weight that sinks the balance of powers,...

Michael Reagan: Riding the wave
A beautiful red tsunami swept across America Tuesday night. Liberal pollsters and liberal pundits on TV refused to see the Republican wave coming and still can’t believe it came. But the S.S. Obama and its cargo of bad ideas sank like a rock, dragging Captain Harry Reid and a...

Letter: Watch their eyes for all the lies
A majority of voters will be voting for Republicans again. And who can fault the Republican politicians who do nothing for farmers or workers in this district? Republicans still want to reduce the size of government until it can be dragged into the bathroom and drowned in the bathtub....
