The late Dr. Jack Minzey was an author and Head of Education at Eastern Michigan University. Supposedly, he wrote the paragraph which follows. The liberal “fact checker Snopes” claims the quote to be misattributed, although they conveniently don’t mention who did. Suffice to say, I’m not a b…

My mother taught me many things. She gave me the gift of curiosity. She questioned everything and encouraged her children to do the same. She spent her early teen years as a short-order cook and waitress. With her experience, she taught me to cook and enjoy the creativity of the process.

The month of November and Lake Superior are a dangerous pair. As I wrote a few weeks ago, my wife and I made our first trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and spent time on the shores of Lake Superior studying the beauty of this largest of the Great Lakes. At the same time, we learned mo…

This week, Abigail Shrier, author of the new book “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,” found herself at the center of a firestorm. Her great crime: writing an assessment of the psychological phenomenon known as rapid onset gender dysphoria, where groups of psy…

I watched Fox News’ ridiculous coverage of election night. I was amazed, and quite frankly, resentful Fox called the state of Illinois for Biden simultaneously as the polls closed. Evidently, the result was as much of a forgone conclusion as me in the same room with rhubarb pie.

WASHINGTON — There was something soothing about listening to two hours of Supreme Court arguments last Tuesday, as the justices distinguished the “hortatory” from the merely “precatory” and traded hypotheticals about lawn-mowing, tree-planting and war bonds. Despite the Trump administration’…

On a recent Saturday evening, presidential frontrunner Joe Biden — who doesn’t actually become president-elect until vote counts are certified — gave a preliminary victory address. In that address, he spoke of his mandate to govern: a mandate, he said, that extended to marshalling the “force…

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to “restore the soul of America.” It is a worthy, poetic goal. Another, more prosaic objective also lies before him: fixing America’s plumbing.

Joe: Let’s discuss our takeaways from this election. It is Saturday morning, the fourth day after the election and the counting continues. One thing is certain. We have a record number of voters, about 145 million, and they all voted during a pandemic.

As I went to bed at midnight election night, I was worried that we were going to have four more years of a demagogue. When I awoke on Wednesday morning, I saw a slim ray of hope. As the days progressed, I gained even more hope. Not just that we had voted out a would-be dictator, but that the…

I always find it fascinating what triggers us. As an author and a columnist, I’ve learned to thicken my skin and brace myself for criticism. Anytime any of us put ourselves out there, whether we run for office, create something or perform publicly, you must expect and accept criticism. It’s …

Think back to one year ago this month. America was at peace. American troops were coming home from the hotspots around the world. Incomes and jobs were skyrocketing, and Americans had made more wage and salary gains in three years under President Donald Trump than in the previous 16 years un…

Last Tuesday night, the American people spoke. They spoke with millions upon millions of voices to produce the greatest presidential election voter turnout in more than 100 years. And they sent a variety of messages, most of them quite positive.

As we approached the disruptive election on Nov. 3, many of us wished the TV ads would end, that the days could just fly away. Let the couple of weeks go by quickly. But wait. That is wishing away days and weeks, days and weeks of what is left of our lives. I think back to reading “Catch-22”…

WASHINGTON — On the morning after the election four years ago, on an Amtrak train home from President-elect Donald Trump’s victory party in New York, I wrote a letter to my then-12-year-old daughter, who was worried about what lay ahead.

I penned an op-ed recently about the media, entitled “The Day the Music Died.” Well, I wasn’t done yet. I’ll further expand on the mainstream media’s efforts to manipulate us, rather than report news, as our future depends on it.

Joe Biden has said he wants to be president of all the states, and he doesn’t see red states and blue states. But his economic policies are a de-facto war against the high-growth red states of the South and the Sunbelt. We are talking about states such as Texas, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, No…
