A World of Lies

Remember the terrible murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyo. in 1998 — tortured, beaten and left hanging on a fence to die because he was gay? The American people were led from the outset to believe that Shepard was the victim of a hate crime, murdered because of his sexual orientation. And that is…

Mary Cheney, Liz Cheney and Left-Wing Hate

There are individual haters on the right and individual haters on the left.

For at least two generations, countless conservative parents have seen their adult children reject their core values. I have met these parents throughout America. I have spoken with them in person and on my radio show. Many…

The President Who Has Done the Most Damage

I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I…

Does It Feel Good — or Do Good?

There is a question that all of us need to ask. How we respond makes all the difference in what type of life we lead and what type of world we make. That question is: Does an action feel good or do good? Let me give three areas of examples — personal life, the left…
