As a child, I had the utmost respect for the profession of journalism. Chalk it up to childhood naivety, but I can recall a time when they at least attempted to give the appearance of objectivity and professionalism. I...
According to TIME, Republicans in the U.S. Senate have a 'big problem' with 'insurgent' candidates challenging their establishment (GOPe) candidates. Tuesday, President Trump gave his full endorsement to Alabama's GOPe favorite, Luther Strange, over House Freedom Caucus member Mo Brooks. And...
It began years ago under the faulty premise that government should be involved in American healthcare. It continued in 2010, in a colossal show of partisanship, when the Left unanimously forced government-run healthcare on all of us under the...
West Virginia governor’s switch from D to R means GOP will have full control of legislative and executive branch in 26 states; Dems have full control in just 6 states. Tonight West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (D) will announce his...
In a recent Signal commentary, Jim De Bree jumped on the popular bandwagon of criticizing President Trump. Admittedly, there are things to criticize Trump for, but the mainstream media and Trump-haters in general take it far and away from...
The palpable hate in politics today is the worst many have ever seen. The reactions and depths of emotions far exceed any definition of loathing; it’s unadulterated hate. In my opinion, hate is an energy-sucking waste of time, but...
The Signal’s June 7 Opinion page offers some statements that beg to be challenged. Gary Horton’s “America: Just another nation” states that “Trump snubbed our NATO allies with no mention or recommitment to NATO’s Article 5.” That’s a hollow gripe. Article 5...
Following the theme to destroy any Republican in office, Democrats are aflutter with the message that every Republican idea, national or local, is purely negative. Near-daily statements from the three candidates opposing U.S. Rep. Steve Knight repeat the same storylines:...
No one has to go shopping to look for Trump bashing. It’s plentiful, in your face, in your home and it’s free … whether you want it or not. Many say Trump is thin-skinned. I’m unconvinced of that. Considering the...
“The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” — Ronald Reagan Those humorous and well-known words of Ronald Reagan have never rung more true about California’s Democrats...
Last week I made the annual trek to Washington, D.C., to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). For those unfamiliar with it, CPAC is the largest yearly meeting of conservative political activists. We come from all across the country....
Within about three weeks of your presidency, you have signed executive orders and presidential memorandums addressing trade, jobs, defunding international abortions and reversing failed policies of the previous administration. You are keeping your campaign promises to keep America safe, and...
At the beginning of President Obama’s farewell speech, he said, “Change only happens when ordinary people come together and demand it.” During his campaign, and throughout his presidency, Barack Obama spoke constantly of change. He often characterized his failed policies...
In 14 days, Donald J. Trump will ride into the White House atop a historic wave of American anger fueled by the tyrannical liberal policies of the past eight years. In doing so, he’ll have control of both houses of...
A Dec. 14 Signal commentary, “Setting the chains on transition,” discussed the coming 2017 presidency. It also praised the departing president but unfortunately cited some incorrect statistics. Author Gary Horton said when Obama took office (January 2009) America was “losing...
Regarding columnist Kevin Buck’s “On the grifter and rubes” published Dec. 6 in The Signal: Here are a few quotes that will tell everyone exactly how the Democrats plan to “unite,” “heal the country” and “work together” – among...
As children we learn and grow attached to the idea that things should be fair. As we grow older we often realize that they sometimes aren’t. But there are some things so important, so vital to the fabric of our...

The feigned outrage of the media and liberals over Donald Trump’s crude remarks about grabbing and kissing women is so typical of the bi-polar hysteria of the liberal mindset. Immediately after the release of the Trump video, Hillary Clinton tweeted:...
Most Americans are not aware that, although Barack Obama is serving his last months as president, he plans to do a lot more damage before he leaves. Being in the middle of a presidential campaign, the mainstream media’s focus is...
If “corruption is just another form of tyranny,” then the only intelligent words ever uttered by Joe Biden are also prophetic. As Americans mourn the rule of law in this country, we remember one lowly naval reservist who paid...
I must be living right. For the second year my column falls right before the Fourth of July, which happens to be my favorite holiday — especially how it’s celebrated in the Santa Clarita Valley. As I grew up in...
When most people think of European social norms, they would assume that Europe’s abortion laws are at least as progressive as those of the United States. After all, Progressives look to Europe as the ultimate example of progressive Western society...
By Danika Fears Turns out liberals are the real authoritarians. A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong. The American Journal of Political...
Well, its official . . . Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for President. By dominating Indiana on Tuesday, he gave both Ted Cruz and John Kasich no other choice other than to bow out and bring the primary...
Where have all the middle class jobs gone? That subject has been one of the main issues resonating through the 2016 presidential campaign. Amidst all the noise and uproarious protests taking place around the country, American workers have been silently...
Why are so many young people attracted to Bernie Sanders? Do they know anything about him? Why does socialism sound so attractive to college students? Before Bernie Sanders became a U.S. senator, he was nothing but an angry radical agitator...
Imagine a quiet room furnished with pillows, blankets, and soothing music. A video of frolicking puppies is playing in the background, and trays of cookies are served for your enjoyment. This room is a place where one can retreat to...
As much as the mainstream media will try to ignore the election results from Tuesday, it is undeniable that Republicans scored big, and in some cases historic, victories across the country. In Kentucky, Matt Bevin’s 53 percent to 44 percent...
Without much ado and little notice from the media, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, delivered a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, which should give every American cause for great concern. Last Wednesday, Attorney General Lynch announced the launch of...

Like all human beings, radical liberals reveal what they value and don’t value through the way they express their passions. What are radical liberals passionate about? The liberal today is passionate about seeing nothing good in this world, and nothing...
While Republicans gear up for a long, intense primary season filled with numerous debates and excellent candidates, Democrats — who thought they could just sit back and enjoy the show while Hillary Clinton locks up her party’s nomination —...
In sanctuary cities across the United States, federal, state and local officials are colluding with criminal illegal aliens and allowing them to have the run of this country to prey on American citizens. The tragic and unnecessary death of Kathryn...
The 4th of July has forever been my favorite holiday in Santa Clarita. Old traditions like the parade and pancake breakfast now merge perfectly with newer ones like the 5/10k run and the numerous firework shows. Like many of...
