‘We the people’ see through liberal media elites

Ninety percent of news coverage is negative toward President Donald Trump. Dinesh D’Souza made a truthful negative movie about Barack Obama, and he was put in jail. During Obama’s reign, conservatives were targeted, which the national news media chose to ignore. News media elites have ignored Trump’s successes, but seem perfectly willing to report an ongoing investigation (yet to be proven in over a year) into Trump’s so-called Russian collusion. Major news outlets are no longer reporters of the news; they’ve become left-wing advocates for what they believe America should be. Fortunately, “we the people” don’t believe in that vision of America and are willing to present the reasons why. Unfortunately, liberals are not willing to communicate to the American people the reasons why anyone should vote for a Democrat.

Conservative pundit misunderstands Nazi history

Regarding “Capitalism holds moral superiority over socialism” (Opinion, May 30), Walter Williams displays a remarkable misunderstanding of history. He writes that “Germany under the National Socialist German Workers Party” represented, along with the U.S.S.R. and the People’s Republic of China, the “brutality of socialism.” Mr. Williams implies that because the Nazis included “Socialist” in their infamous name, the government was similar in economic outlook to Communist Russia and China. This is untrue. When in 1919 the German Workers Party became the National Socialist German Workers Party, it did so to broaden its base and attract more working-class adherents. In Nazi parlance, “National Socialism” referred to a community of racially pure, egalitarian Germans living under an authoritarian regime. In most of the 12 years of Nazi rule, many industries remained in private hands, a stock market functioned, and capitalism, albeit in a restricted form, persisted.

Father’s Day proves value of, need for dads Fathers on the fringe did not see their kids on Father’s Day, and many will wish they did. Many deserve a second chance or amnesty at least on this one day. Kids from father-absent homes are much more likely to carry guns and deal drugs than their peers living with fathers. Mothers and children...

Opinion: Who do you believe, Donald Trump or Donald Trump?

It can’t be easy to keep believing all the things that the Trump faith requires you to believe these days, particularly when they so often contradict each other. For example: 1.) According to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, “we don’t have a policy of separating families at the border.” Also, according to Homeland...

Opinion: The lesser cruelty on immigration

Let’s start with the easy part. The policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border, delivering them into a bureaucratic labyrinth while their fathers and mothers await trial or petition for asylum, is the wickedest thing the Trump administration has done so far — and you can tell exactly how wicked by observing...
