Progressives and America’s New Dark Ages in California

536 AD is often pointed to as the worst year in human history. A volcanic eruption in Iceland darkened the skies over Europe, triggered massive food shortages and the Black Death, and brought on the Dark Ages, an agonizing period for humanity.

Trump’s Unimpeachable Foreign Policy

For the past couple of years we’ve heard a drumbeat that President Trump is an idiot and a traitor, alienating key allies and caving to the Russians. Former special counsel Robert Meuller put the lie to that.

For the past couple of months, we’ve heard that Trump has endangered America’s national security through his challenges to Iran, his telephone call to the president of Ukraine, and his partial withdrawal of troops from Syria.

Strippers, ‘Hustlers’ and the Democratic debates

What does the new movie “Hustlers” have to do with the Democratic debates? It seems that Jennifer Lopez and her crew accomplished something more than just talking and complaining, and actually punished Wall Street misdeeds. None of the Democratic candidates — except, arguably, Joe Biden — appears to have accomplished anything like that.

Trump’s winning weapon: Time
