When I first heard that President Trump is considering releasing illegal aliens into sanctuary cities, I laughed. Out loud.  There may have been giggling, too, as I pondered the implications and read the outraged outraging of the left.

My first thought was “perfect! This is Alinsky in action: make them live by...

The left just doesn’t learn.  Their laser-like fixation on issues that mean absolutely nothing to normal Americans has left them in the political wilderness, but they just keep on going.

New York City’s subway service, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), has decided that the terms “ladies” and “gentleman” are offensive.  Or they...

A writer for the Huffington Post named La Sha has found an upside to the story of the American college student being imprisoned in North Korea. He’s finally been stripped of his white male privilege.

I wish I could say this is parody, but it isn’t:

While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had many well-known speeches and quotes, I think it’s fair to say that his “I Have a Dream” speech is his most famous.

And in that most famous speech, the following line may be the most famous:
