When House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the United States had been plunged into a "constitutional crisis," a large swath of the media took to plying this fantasy for them.

There’s a reason Democrats continuously combat Republican-led efforts to enact sensible voter ID laws while simultaneously pushing for noncitizens, felons and 16-year-olds to be able to vote.

I disagree with letter writer John Lukan’s view that “global warming is a blip in the climate cycle” (May 6, Page 4A). Yes, there have been huge climatic changes in the past that had nothing to do with humans, but this one is caused by burning fossil fuels. Consider these facts: 1) The fossi…

Decisions about admission into college are based on a gamut of factors. Potentially among them: a student’s understanding of parabolas, perihelions and the Reconstruction—that is, his or her academic preparation and performance. But should those decisions also take into account the resourcef…

You’d think from all the bombast and military shows at the border that Donald Trump is truly dedicated to ending illegal immigration. His apparent choice of Ken Cuccinelli as immigration “czar” would seem to cement the impression. The immigration hardliner espouses policies that are both cru…

I was extremely excited reading the Friday story (Page 1A) about Blackhawk Community Credit Union intending to purchase the original First National Bank building on West Milwaukee Street. The credit union has plans to restore the building to its 1918 appearance under direction of CEO Sherri Stumpf.

In the past several weeks, a bevy of states have passed extensive new restrictions on abortion. Alabama has effectively banned abortion from point of conception. Georgia has banned abortion from the time a heartbeat is detected, as have Ohio, Kentucky and Mississippi. Missouri has banned abo…

When legacy businesses are threatened by new competitors, too often they respond by lobbying for regulation to quash them. It’s notable, then, that Marriott recently announced it is starting a new home-rental business, putting the world’s biggest hotel operator in direct competition with Air…

The Washington Examiner reported that the "recently released transcript of Department of Justice lawyer Bruce Ohr’s congressional testimony confirms that the DOJ and FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process to obtain a court order to surveil former Trump campaign adviser …

Regarding the Friday story (Page 2A) about unemployment dropping to 2.8%, that pretty much tells it all. It shows how well this state and our country are doing since this president has been in office! This president has been doing just as he stated he would. It has been a very long time sinc…

Lawmakers in this rural corner of Tennessee near Knoxville passed an interesting resolution the other night, making Blount County a sanctuary.

In a country that spans a continent, in a party that produced Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, there is still no serious political challenge to the ideological supremacy of a corrupt, deeply prejudiced conman who cares nothing for democratic traditions, constitutional limits and moral norms. Donald Trump's reelection would entrench a particularly vicious brand of Know Nothingism, advocated with tireless arrogance, combined with resolute ignorance, enabled by steadfast sycophancy.

Terry Gou, founder and long-time chief executive of electronics giant Hon Hai Precision Industry Company, more commonly known as Foxconn Technology, has dramatically declared himself a candidate for the presidency of Taiwan. His blunt, argumentative style is already prominent in political an…

I would just like to thank the committee, Department of Natural Resources and the city of Janesville politicians who voted on the removal of the Monterey Dam. Do any one of these so-called do-gooders know what they did to the fishery from Centerway Dam to Afton? I know they are not sportsmen…

What we need is a holiday somewhere between Mother’s Day and the Fourth of July. It would be a mashup that celebrates the right of moms to let their kid wait in the car while they run into the store for red, white and blue cupcakes.

It's common throughout the nation for many political races to come down to just a few thousand votes between opposing candidates -- or at times, even less. Now consider if one political candidate's posts and tweets were being blocked online -- where most Americans get their news. Clearly, that could impact the outcome of an election, especially if many of the candidate's supporters were also censored and/or shadow-banned online.

The left is starting to take aim at Democratic front-runner Joe Biden. At a conference this week, liberal activists repeatedly booed when told that Biden wanted to find "middle ground" on climate policy. When an audience member shouted "No middle ground!" Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., replied, "No middle ground is right!" and declared "I will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act come back today and say we need a middle-of-the-road approach to save our lives." Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., joined in her criticism, "There is no 'middle ground' when it comes to climate policy."

The theme for this year’s emergency medical services week brings attention to the fact that our EMS providers routinely go “beyond the call.” We know that they are a committed, caring group of men and women that help save lives routinely. What we often underestimate is how their contribution…
