PolitiFact Rates Larry Elder 'False' on Democrats and Slavery, But Elder Was Right

Getting fact-checked cuts two ways. It means the fact-checkers pay attention to what I say. It also means I should expect liberal bias from the checkers. In a recent appearance on Fox News, I made the following assertions: Republicans did not own slaves. Democrats owned slaves; Democrats founded... → Read More

Democratic Debates: Did Russia Pay These Candidates to Throw the Election to Trump?

Did the Russians pay the 2020 Democratic candidates to throw the 2020 election to President Donald Trump?

Reparations: How Not to Foster Racial Harmony

About reparations, a skeptical President Barack Obama in 2016 told reparations proponent Ta-Nehisi Coates that it would divide the country.

AOC Got a Pass on the Cost of 'Free' from ABC's Jonathan Karl

ABC's Jonathan Karl recently interviewed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

America Will Always Be 'Racist' — If Nirvana Is the Goal

In 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. predicted that America could elect a black president in 40 years or less. Implicit in King's prediction is that such an achievement would show that racism was no longer a serious problem in our country. Three years later, King said: "Because of prejudices and n... → Read More

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., an advocate for a $15 minimum wage, returned to work as a bartender for one day.

Democrats 2020: The Grievance Party

Describing the Democratic Party as one built on "identity politics" used to be a pejorative.

"I would argue that identity politics is exactly who we are," said Abrams, "an... → Read More

The Left's Battle Against 'Inequality' Leaves Out One Critical Factor

In his book Discrimination and Disparities, economist Thomas Sowell notes that a disproportionate percentage of first-born siblings become National Merit scholars compared to siblings born later, presumably because the first-born starts life with no sibling competition for parental attention. Thi... → Read More

Trump's 'Infrastructure' Plan Versus Obama's 'Stimulus': Part II

My previous column objected to President Donald Trump and Sen. Chuck Schumer's, D-N.Y., proposed $2 trillion "infrastructure" spending. As with President Barack Obama's "stimulus," the Trump-Schumer plan violates the concept of federalism and bails out states that spend irresponsibly, guaranteein... → Read More

If Trump is ‘racist,’ he needs to go back to racism school

Abraham Lincoln, when informed that Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was a drunk, famously asked Grant’s accusers what whiskey he was drinking so Lincoln could send a barrel to every general in the army. Keep this in mind when President Trump’s critics accuse him of “racism” against blacks. Under this “racist” president, black unemployment, since the government began keeping numbers, hit an all-time low in… → Read More

Dear Ms. Fonda: As you travel to Detroit this weekend to campaign for a $12 minimum wage, I suggest you read this letter. I'm sure you mean well. But are you familiar with the voluminous number of peer-reviewed studies that conclude minimum-wage laws damaged the very people that many of the Hollywood left say they care about -- blacks? Respected economist David Neumark examined all of the major… → Read More

What to do about Obamacare and the uninsurable?

When it comes to repealing and replacing Obamacare, defenders of President Barack Obama's signature domestic law constantly ask, "What about those with pre-existing illnesses?" After all, the most popular feature of Obamacare is that it prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because an applicant has a pre-existing illness. And President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan… → Read More
