There is an Official Democratic Politician Rebuttal of the State of the Union, but why bother? They need only give links to national "news" sites, since the "news" anchors will offer their "context" as soon as the speech is over.

President Trump reached past the political divide in Congress to unify Americans around an inspiring vision of what America can be. He took the policy issues that often polarize Washington and appealed to Americans with moving stories that showed the human side of policy decisions.

Over the last decade, I’ve noticed more and more sex glamorized in teen-geared shows, but Netflix reached a new low with their newly released “Sex Education” TV series. In the last 2 years, Netflix has pumped out many graphic original series like “13 Reasons Why,” which glamorizes suicide and has been linked to several teen deaths. The worst so-called puberty-geared show “Big Mouth” is also a very graphic adult cartoon watched by millions of young people. “Riverdale” season 3 just kicked off last fall, and their trailer depicts witchcraft...

Last month, the Knights of Columbus released the results of a survey on abortion attitudes they commissioned through the Marist Poll.  The Knights have sponsored a survey on abortion attitudes each of the past 11 years, and the news is always good for pro-lifers.  This year’s poll found that three fourths of Americans felt abortions should be illegal after the first trimester. Also, majorities opposed taxpayer funding of abortion and supported the conscience rights of medical professionals who oppose abortion. In the days leading up to the March for Life, these results...

Upper-income taxpayers started paying a much greater share of the tax burden after the Reagan tax cuts. My left-leaning friends sometimes look at this data and complain that the rich are paying more of the tax burden only because they have grabbed a larger share of national income. And this means we should impose punitive tax rates.But this argument is flawed.

A Chinese scientist caused an international scandal late last year when he edited the genes of a pair of unborn twins, in what became known as the CRISPR scandal.

Suppose I declare that I am a king. Should you be required to address me as "Your Majesty"? You say, "Williams, that's lunacy! You can't prove such nonsense." You're wrong. It's proved by my declaration. It's no different from a person born with XY chromosomes declaring that he is a woman. The XY sex determination system is the sex determination system found in humans and most other mammals. Females typically have two of the same kind of sex chromosome (XX) and are called the homogametic sex. Males typically have two different kinds of sex chromosomes (...

Last week, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam was hit with a shocking blast from the past: a photo on his medical school yearbook page of a man in blackface and another man in a Ku Klux Klan outfit. Northam quickly apologized for the photo, then said he wasn't in the photo and then admitted he had once worn blackface and dressed up as Michael Jackson for a dance contest. He nearly moonwalked at a press conference before his wife gave him a look that could curdle milk.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has proposed raising the legal minimum wage to $12 per hour on July 1, 2019, and then an additional 50 cents per year until the minimum wage reaches $15 per hour in 2025.
