Popped my head back into the political world when a friend on social media sent me a link to a two-minute soundbite from a press conference held Monday by Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Patrol Mark Morgan.

One side benefit of my extended California stay was my mom talking me into venturing out Friday night for the Fall Festival Evening Under the Stars. It was a nice night, and once the sun went down, the weather was perfect.

The current era of cancel culture has found another target, one who is already familiar with outrage, comedian Dave Chapelle. His new special on Netflix has apparently ruffled more than a few feathers of some sensitive folks.

One of the good things about spending time away from home has been the change in my routines and a break from the litany of “Breaking News” alerts and emotional manipulation peddled as the day’s news. Most of my time spent on Grammie’s ranch, the television has been on the Home and Garden or…

This week I find myself with a different view outside the window as I write this column. Instead of the green vistas of western Tennessee, it’s a more familiar, and comforting view of the California foothills from the windows of my grandma’s ranch on the West Side. And while the vistas have …

One needs look no further than the three recent mass shootings to know that our society, and our culture, has some major problems. Like other such tragedies in the past, many of us look toward the surface issues… guns, video games and online chat forums, to “fix” them instead of asking the h…

The latest dust-up to hit the national political stage centered around the flashpoint of Baltimore has of course devolved to cries of Trump being a racist. But when you look beyond social media and breathless national reporting, well, I have some questions about what is going on in cities li…

One year ago this weekend the U-Haul was packed, my SUV was filled to the roof with boxes and kids, and more than a few tears were falling as we left the West Side on one of our biggest adventures ever with our move to Tennessee. And what a year it has been.

For the second time in as many weeks the domestic terror group Antifa has violently lashed out, this time in a deadly firebomb attack of federal law enforcement. In a series of coordinated attacks in the West, protests have steadily escalated to vandalism, assault and now an attack on a dete…

The current political scandal of the day is, by far, one of the most shameful displays of partisan politics to ever come out of the fetid swamp waters of Washington, D.C. The United States Census is, by every metric, a necessity in ensuring equal representation of Americans in the House of R…

There is a fight happening for the soul of our nation and the battleground has been set. Whether on social media or on the streets of any major American city, the militant left wants conformity by any means necessary.

As the calendar flips to a new month and the temperatures continue to rise, communities across the country are gearing up for festive Fourth celebrations. Parades, festivals and of course, fireworks can be counted on to commemorate the anniversary of America’s founding in a grand fashion.

This week we are featuring our annual tribute to all things dairy, in honor of National Dairy Month and celebrating the families who work so hard to supply us with some of the best foods under the sun.

I don’t think there has been a better week than last week for President Trump, and the good vibes have stayed with him after a very successful (and dare I say diplomatic) state visit to England, France and Ireland to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

The recent European Union (EU) elections came as somewhat of a surprise to pundits and politicians across the pond and throughout Europe. While European politics are an anathema to our brand of politics, with coalitions that do not always make sense to us Yankees, something can be said about…

As I write my column on Tuesday, I am watching the clock with a growing sense of both anticipation and trepidation. Why, you might ask… well, it’s the last day of school in Martin, Tennessee, and at the moment I have about an hour and a half of peace and quiet left until the unholy ruckus th…

Breaking news came from Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday night of the appointment of U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut to “review all intelligence collection activities” in relation to the 2016 Trump campaign. News of this appointment caused more than a few ripples in The Swamp an…

A couple of interesting things have happened over the last few weeks regarding the ever-worsening crisis at our southern border. Beyond the mass invasion currently flooding our border, a continual caravan from Central and South America, increasingly consisting of children whether accompanied…

Listening to some of the Democrat presidential candidates during town halls has been quite enlightening, to say the least. Beyond the doom and gloom outlook of continued rule by the “orange guy,” you would think that the world under liberal leadership would be a veritable utopia of goodness …
