The elimination of standardized testing for the UC University System

The elimination of standardized testing for the UC University System

The elimination of standardized testing for the UC University System will only lead to overt and radical schemes designed to reduce the number of Asian and White students in the UC System.  Standardized testing does not discriminate against minorities.  Eliminating a standardized testing requirement will only result in the admission of under-qualified students. See this great...

Trump Uses Persuasion, Not Force, in Coronavirus Crisis

Trump Uses Persuasion, Not Force, in Coronavirus Crisis

When our founding fathers drafted the Constitution and Bill of Rights, it was done knowing that the "several states" were and will always be different from each other.  The reality is that different parts of our country are, well, DIFFERENT.  Social distancing is already practiced by citizens in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and many of our central states -- so no one size fits all...

Why are Republicans and Democrats So Divided over Coronavirus?

Why are Republicans and Democrats So Divided over Coronavirus?

Obviously, we are a very badly divided nation. So divided, we agree on virtually nothing. So divided, we can’t even talk to each other anymore. So divided, one side doesn’t believe in anything the other side says. So divided California, New York, and Illinois might as well be on a different planet than Texas. We can’t even agree on how to respond to Coronavirus, and when to get back to business. Check out the latest Rasmussen poll. 61% of Republicans believe America will literally rise...

Mr. President, Fight the Battle of the DC Swamp Creatures

Mr. President, Fight the Battle of the DC Swamp Creatures

Remember when Rahm Emanuel let the secret out of the bag, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Just days ago, South Carolina Democrat Congressman James Clyburn repeated almost the exact same words to his Democrat colleagues. Clyburn said, “this is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” Meaning he wants to use a life and death Coronavirus pandemic to push through the extreme, radical, socialist agenda of Democrats, while everyone in Washington DC (including...

Mr. President, Follow the South Korean Model to Defeat Coronavirus

Mr. President, Follow the South Korean Model to Defeat Coronavirus

Great job, President Trump. You’ve done the impossible- you’ve turned perhaps worst crisis in USA history and one of darkest periods Americans have ever suffered, into a show of leadership and a jump in approval. The latest ABC News /IPSOS poll shows a dramatic turnaround. By 55% to 43% Americans approve of President Trump’s handling of this crisis. That’s the complete reverse of only a week ago. Bravo. But I have some advice you need to hear. Now keep in mind, I’m not one of the people...

Here’s How to Save America, Mr. President

Here’s How to Save America, Mr. President

All my life, four titles have best described me: Conservative, Libertarian, Capitalist, and Contrarian. Keeping those in mind, I have great questions and doubts about what roads have been chosen to combat Coronavirus. I think it’s our right and duty to ask questions in a free society. I just don’t know if this route was chosen to virtually ban business and commerce; to literally destroy Las Vegas, one of the world’s great cities; to leave millions unemployed, frightened and unsure how to...

I’m Betting on America. Are You?

I’m Betting on America. Are You?

I’m the ultimate positive thinker. I’m also very cynical. You can be both. My favorite saying is, “Expect the best, prepare for the worst.” So, I’m going to give you both sides of the Coronavirus story.   Let’s start with the bad. This is the worst mess of our lifetimes. The economy is hanging by a thread. Stocks are savaged. Small business is wrecked. Millions of Americans are about to lose their jobs. My beloved Vegas is (for the moment) down for the count. And I haven’t even...

The Most Important Joe Biden Question in the World

The Most Important Joe Biden Question in the World

Before I get to the most important Joe Biden question in the world… I have breaking news on the Trump economy. More economic numbers were out on Friday. The US economy gained a remarkable 273,000 new jobs in February. Far more than the 175,000 expected. But even more powerful news, December’s jobs report was revised up by 37,000, January’s jobs report was revised up by 48,000. That’s 85,000 extra jobs no one was aware of. Even in the midst of a Coronavirus crisis, the Trump economy is...

Is It Time to Call Democrats “Evil”? You Decide

Is It Time to Call Democrats “Evil”? You Decide

I’ve tried in my career as a conservative commentator to rarely use the word “evil.” Disagreeing over policies and a political agenda doesn’t make your opponent “evil.” As a matter of fact, most reasonable, commonsense Americans want compromise. What if I reported my opinion is Democrats have now officially crossed the line into “evil.” I’m sure some of you might say I’m being harsh. What if I reported Democrats are extreme, radical, Kool-Aid drinking, Stepford Wives trying to destroy...

California: A State of Emergency and Warning to Nevada

California: A State of Emergency and Warning to Nevada

By Mike Colian Many people have seen the fires and blackouts in California and wondered how could this happen? How could one of the wealthiest states in the country have such massive infrastructure problems and how could the state allow its residents to be put at such continuous risk? Former Governor Jerry Brown and current Governor Gavin Newsom should answer those questions but they won’t. It starts with decades of liberal politics. Former Governor Jerry brown allowed...
