Cal Thomas: Two contrasting congressional days
News-Herald » Opinion

Last Friday in Washington there was evidence of why only 16 percent of the public approve of the job Congress is doing, according to a Gallup poll. During a House Oversight Committee hearing on whether to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena, several House members resorted to schoolyard taunts and raucous name-calling. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) started it by claiming to Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) couldn’t see the resolution being discussed because “…. your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading.” Crocke ..read more

S.E. Cupp: Biden attacking polls and press isn’t how to win

Denial is a river in Egypt, as the saying goes. Well, it’s also making itself quite at home at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. President Biden is trailing former President Donald Trump in five swing states, all of which Biden won in 2020, according to a new set of polls. While these polls are but a snapshot, they aren’t the only ones indicating Biden is struggling. They’re just the latest ones. There was the Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll in April showing Biden trailing Trump in six of seven swing states. And an Emerson College Polling/The Hill poll in April showing Trump ..read more

Jonah Goldberg: Biden still trails Trump in the polls. His problem goes beyond inflation, Gaza and age
News-Herald » Opinion

A batch of new polls from the New York Times, Siena College and the Philadelphia Inquirer has very bad news for President Biden: He’s losing. Among registered voters, he’s significantly behind in five of the six battleground states that are most likely to decide the election. He does slightly better among likely voters but remains behind in five key states. It’s a snapshot, but it’s consistent with the overall trend of this campaign — which is, again, he’s losing. Biden and many of his supporters seem to think the solution is to get right with the issues — the economy, the Israel-Ham ..read more

Cal Thomas: Trump outdoes himself with crude language
News-Herald » Opinion

If you are the parent of young children, are you OK with your kids hearing former President Donald Trump’s language and putdowns, like the ones at his rally last Saturday in Wildwood, New Jersey? One can hear a kid justifying his or her own swearing: “If Trump can talk like that, why can’t I?” Is this the way we want our children to be raised? They will learn swear words soon enough (and hopefully control their use of them or eschew them altogether). There was a time when we were taught to respect those in authority and use acceptable language. I remember my grandmother once admonishing me whe ..read more

Thompson Township trustees lauded for choice of new police chief | Editorial
News-Herald » Opinion
by Bill DeBus
1w ago
One would hope that anyone who is hired for the position of police chief possesses solid leadership experience, great interpersonal skills and a high level of integrity. Based on these qualities, we believe that Thompson Township trustees made a good decision by appointing Jeremy Jesenovec as the community’s new police chief. Jesenovec was sworn in at the May 1 Thompson Township trustees meeting. It is not a full-time position, and he will serve in the role a few days per week. With 30 years experience in law enforcement after five years with the United States Marine Corps, Jesenovec has a div ..read more

S.E. Cupp: Trump’s biggest albatross is Nikki, not Stormy
News-Herald » Opinion

Donald Trump has a woman problem. That sounds like an obvious statement about the thrice married former president who is currently defending himself against charges he paid off a porn star he slept with just months after his wife gave birth to their son. But Stormy Daniels — said porn star — isn’t the only woman stalking the embattled mogul, tying up his time and money, and threatening to upend his chance at a second term. There’s E. Jean Carroll. A jury found Trump liable for sexually assaulting her in the mid-1990s, and then awarded her $83.3 million in punitive and compensatory damages ..read more

Cal Thomas: Bibi ignores Biden
News-Herald » Opinion

What do you think President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response might have been if another nation had called on him to stop U.S. and Allied forces from taking Berlin and squashing the Nazi regime in 1945? Same question about President Harry Truman when it came to dropping nuclear bombs on Japan, prompting its swift surrender? In the case of Germany, if allied forces had pulled their punches, Adolf Hitler might have survived, regrouped his National Socialist Party, and continued killing Jews. Those analogies are applicable when it comes to what Israel is trying to achieve in Rafah – the ..read more

Jonah Goldberg: What happened to the Republican war on ‘woke’ — and what we should have learned from it
News-Herald » Opinion
by Jonah Goldberg
1w ago
This isn’t going to be more musing about whether America has reached “peak woke.” But that is part of the story. So let’s start there. About a decade ago, many on the left embraced the word “woke,” a term with roots in African American culture and activism. It originally meant staying awake — that is, “woke” — to the dangers facing the Black community. But in the hands of the broader, and whiter, academic and journalistic left, it soon became a kind of cool catchall for progressive politics, alongside other buzzwords like “intersectionality.” The combined effects of th ..read more

Cal Thomas: The powerless church
News-Herald » Opinion

“ O never give me over to my own heart’s desires, nor let me follow my own imaginations!”– John Wesley There are many reasons for the modern church’s loss of its prophetic voice, politics being just one of them. As in ancient times, trying to embrace what the rest of the world is doing has diminished the power of the church to address what used to be called “sinful behavior.” The latest, but surely not the last example, is what the United Methodist Church did last week at their convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Delegates voted 523 to 161 to replace the definition of marri ..read more

For two out of the last three years, fire chiefs from eastern Lake County have been honored at a major statewide award ceremony for the firefighting profession.
