Male and female still matter in combat

Less than a year after the Supreme Court decided that marriage no longer needs partners of the opposite sex, the other two branches of the federal government are moving rapidly to eliminate all rational distinctions based on sex. Taken together, these new actions reflect the unscientific (but oh-so-politically correct) dogma that there are no fundamental, biological differences between male and female.

The Democrats’ Sanders

If Donald Trump supporters had booed a Republican senator at a state convention over the weekend, if they threw chairs because they did not like a delegate count, if Trump's goons published a state party vice chairwoman's private phone number -- which unleashed a torrent of abusive, obscenity-drenched voice messages that described the acts of violence she deserved -- then it would be a big story. And if Trump spoke Wednesday afternoon, you would expect all the cable news networks to air his speech live to see whether Trump would use the occasion to call off the dogs or he ...

Shameless New York Times

The New York Times proclaimed the results of its six-week "investigation" of Donald Trump's behavior with women on the front page of the Sunday paper. It discovered that Trump is kind of sleazy around women. The Times wants us to know this right now -- as opposed to six months ago -- when it's clear he will be the Republican nominee running against Hillary Clinton.

Conservative heretics

In his coquettish refusal to accept the Donald, Paul Ryan says he cannot betray the conservative "principles" of the party of Abraham Lincoln, high among which is a devotion to free trade.

Here’s why Trump tap dances on taxes

Donald Trump has reason to be reluctant to release his tax returns. In a New York Times piece about Ben Rhodes, President Obama's deputy national security adviser, Rhodes cynically explains that today's journalism consists of young people whom he flat-out describes as ignorant. "The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old," Rhodes said, "and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That's a sea change. They literally know nothing."

Sanchez doesn’t back down

Running to replace Barbara Boxer in the U.S. Senate, Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Calif., is not backing down from comments she made in December about the percentage of Muslims in the world who support a holy war. After the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Sanchez appeared on "Politicking with Larry King." King asked her about President Barack Obama's reluctance to use the term "radical Islamic terrorism." "A small group" of "anywhere between 5 and 20 percent" of Muslims, Sanchez said, supports a caliphate and is "willing to go to extremes" to secure one. Because Donald Trump recently had proposed a ...

Zuckerberg’s conservative battle

Mark Zuckerberg and his massive social-media site Facebook have come under strong criticism for allegedly suppressing stories of interest for conservative readers from its influential "trending" news section. Facebook has roughly 1.6 billion users worldwide, 167 million of whom are in the United States. Its "trending" section is therefore a powerful political influence.

Most racism is mundane

This spring, the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus has been the site of several heinous acts of racism: An Asian student was spat on and a black student received a note with obscenities and racial slurs slipped under her door.

Onshore tax havens

The first thing you notice on the cab ride from the airport to downtown Panama City is the skyscrapers. They're architecturally beautiful, but jumbled together as if there was no plan or consideration for how they might look next to one another.

Selectively eliminate foods that bring on reflux

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have GERD. I've been on a proton pump inhibitor for a month, and though it's quite effective, I do not want to remain on it because of the possible side effects. Apart from Crestor, I do not take any additional medications.

America’s other epidemic: Chronic untreated pain

The death of Prince, who apparently had a Percocet problem, and a 2016 presidential primary peppered with New England town halls that delved into increased heroin overdoses and prescription drug abuse have converged to create what CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta calls "a public health epidemic." Drug addiction is 2016's big nonpolitical story. CNN aired a special, "Prescription Addiction: Dead in the USA." The Senate passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act to provide grants for treatment and improved monitoring. The House also is working on legislation, with funding expected later in the year.

Donald Trump the Disrupter

Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the GOP House leadership member from Washington state, finally uttered the words I've been waiting to hear with respect to Donald Trump's march on the nation's capital. In an NBC News interview with my pal Luke Russert, she said that Trump is a "disrupter," and we have to learn that that's a good thing.
