Now that the election is over, we must address the elephant in the room — the issue Democrats seeking office avoided and most Republicans were afraid to discuss. We must address the migrant caravans making their way toward the United States determined to circumvent the normal entry process.
President Donald Trump was right to send troops to the border to prepare for those who are set to storm the border, shamelessly putting women and children on the front lines. The president is doing the right thing, but he has been put in a terrible position by activist judges and a do-nothing Congress. Continue reading “Lame-Duck GOP to Fix Immigration?”
Recently, I was sitting in the waiting area of a famous medical facility in Phoenix, Arizona, and overheard two women discussing a recent debate between their candidates for the U.S. Senate, Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrstin Senima. These women were discussing things like which candidate was more persuasive, more forceful, seemed nicer and most sincere. In the end, their votes likely will center on personality.
I wanted to jump up and scream: “Don’t you realize that none of these things are important and the future of this country hangs in the balance!”
Sadly, most people still select their candidates the way a seven-year-old selects her Barbie Doll. The most attractive usually wins. When the candidates are equally attractive, or not at all attractive, it is about which one makes them feel more comfortable or would make the better friend.

Last week Sen. Ron Paul (D-Ken) succeeded in getting a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood and, in doing so, exposed his party’s hypocrisy on two important issues: protecting life and ending deficit spending.
Planned Parenthood is arguably one of the most evil organizations in America. Thanks to the efforts of undercover journalists this organization was caught red-handed trying to sell the body parts of little aborted babies, which is illegal. http://www.centerformedicalprogress.org/cmp/investigative-footage/
However, to date, Planned Parenthood has managed to escape prosecution, claiming the charges only covered doctors’ fees and transportation, despite what was said on these nauseating videos. Meanwhile, the filmmakers involved in the investigation are still fighting off lawsuits.
The outrage is compounded by the fact that Congress has been giving this fat-cat, highly political organization a half billion of our hard-earned tax dollars each year. With the Republican Party — the party that has pledged to protect life — in control, reasonable people who put all these lawmakers in office expected this to end. Continue reading “Senate Punts on Defunding Planned Parenthood, Again”
The Republican Party needs a new mascot. The elephant is no longer appropriate. An elephant is a proud, strong animal. It represents strength, wisdom, loyalty, stamina and leadership. Clearly, after last week’s cave-in to Democrats in order to achieve a long-term spending bill and avoid the possibility of another government shutdown, none of those traits apply to a party that controls both houses of Congress and the White House.
This little compromise, which added another $300 billion to the budget over the next two years, was a complete disaster for a country that is up to its eyeballs in debt and a president that was elected promising to drain the swamp. Earth to the president: The swamp feeds on tax dollars. This deal the GOP is celebrating just flooded the place and added to the stench. Continue reading “GOP Needs a New Mascot”
How nice of the Democrats and their pro-amnesty Republican friends! They want to help President Trump sell what they hope will be his surrender on the border wall to his supporters and the overwhelming majority of Americans who want illegal immigration stopped once and for all. Their solution to his “problem,” they claim, can be found in how he defines the word “wall.”
President Clinton tried that with the word “is.” Continue reading “Are Dreamers not Worth $18 Billion to Democrats?”
As this nation’s first female television sportscaster, I can tell you something about sexual harassment, although we didn’t call it that in those days. It was either a proposition or simply boorish behavior.
My first boss, who was married, came on to me. When I said, “Thanks but no thanks,” he tried to get me fired. He failed. Then, he preceded to make my life miserable at work. It was a cold war until I moved and went to work at another television station.
Once I had a co-worker who continually hit on me. He was a good man and I knew it wasn’t serious, but his constant attention and suggestive remarks were annoying. In some strange way he though this was flattering to a woman. One day I decided to take matters in hand. The next time it happened, I took a flying leap and landed in his arms in full view of everyone. He was so embarrassed, he never did it again.
Working in an almost entirely all-male environment, I found most men to be honorable, kind, respectful and extremely fair.
However, in my lifetime I have seen many men destroyed by a false accusation from a woman. Continue reading “Why I Believe Judge Roy Moore”
Let me be clear: If Roy Moore is guilty of the alleged case of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old 38 years ago, and the latest charge of a sexual attack of a 16-year-old, I think he should step aside in the Alabama Senate race. I also think Bill Clinton should have stepped aside or been forced out by his party when it was discovered he had sexual relations with a White House Intern —in the Oval Office no less — and that Ted Kennedy should have suffered the same fate after it was revealed that he failed to call for help for a drowning, much younger Mary Jo Kopechne.
In the case of Judge Moore and the 14-year-old, the charges against him were leveled by a troubled, dysfunctional teen and may have been unearthed and/or massaged by overly aggressive, politically-motivated reporters at the Washinton Post who went on a deep-diving fishing expedition before the Alabama Special Election which is just a weeks away. However, it is the most recent charge brought by Beverly Young Nelson, presented by dumpster-diving attorney Gloria Allred, that fails the credibility test.
