This week, according to members of the federal government, and state and local governments, Americans have begun to flatten the curve in the novel coronavirus outbreak. The excitement was muted -- after all, trends can easily reverse -- but real. Americans have abided by recommendations and orders. They've left their jobs to stay at home; they've practiced social distancing; in many places, they've donned masks. The result: a reduction in expected hospitalization and death. According to the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation model most oft...

President Donald Trump is hinting at a second task force responsible for getting Americans back to work. Appoint it now, Mr. President. Don't wait until the virus peaks. This second task force should prepare the country to reopen, with new tools to fight the virus. The president's top epidemiologist, the esteemed Anthony Fauci, insists "the best tool we have" is "physical separation." But mandating that people stay home is costing Americans their jobs and will force businesses into bankruptcy. The nation needs an alternative strategy. A chorus of government...

This week in Colorado, our statewide stay-at-home order was extended until April 26. Gov. Jared Polis urged everyone to wear a mask of any kind while outdoors. Local groceries are limiting customers to one every 120 square feet of the store. For the first time, my neighborhood playground on Tuesday was wrapped in bright yellow "CAUTION" tape. And in Brighton, Colorado, a father was handcuffed in an empty park by three police officers for playing T-ball with his 6-year-old daughter and wife. We are not a serious country. America's "social distancing" campaign has gone...

At the peak of his popularity, Jay Leno could put his "Tonight Show" audience in stitches merely by sticking a microphone in front of ordinary Americans and asking them easy questions about history, civics, the Bible, or even basic geography. In a format used since the dawn of radio -- and in our time by Howard Stern -- Leno found that it’s not just kids who say the darndest things.

A statement widely attributed to the great British thinker G. K. Chesterton describes the modern period as perfectly as any single idea can: "When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing; they believe in anything.". One of these substitute gods has been nature. Indeed, of all the false gods, nature is probably the most natural for people to worship. Every religion prior to the Bible had nature-gods -- the sun, the moon, the sea, gods of fertility, gods of rain and so on. That is why the farther Western society gets from biblical, i.e., Judeo-Christian,...

Hospitals struggling to treat waves of very sick people now face a new threat: millions of uninsured Americans pounding at their gates. How can the hospitals afford to treat them, even if they have the beds? The obvious response was for President Donald Trump to open early enrollment in the federal Affordable Care Act marketplace. The 11 states that control their own Obamacare exchanges had already done that (rather than make people wait seven months for the official sign-in period). Insurers, providers and many Republicans expected Trump to take that step. But surprise: President Donald...

BROTHERSVALLEY TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania -- Anyone who drives along the narrow, winding township road just off of U.S. Route 219 immediately finds themselves whisked back in time, if only for a moment, as their car enters the Burkholder Bridge. The 150-year-old structure has cherry-red shingles; a charming sign bearing its name across the arc of the roof; and alabaster white sidewalls, which are distinctive because their openness allows much of the structure to be exposed.

There is nothing worse than the government bailing out private industries. I've spent a career opposing corporate welfare giveaways. When an industry gets in financial trouble because of its poor business practices, the owners, shareholders and executives should bear the cost -- not the taxpayers. The coronavirus crisis is a bit different because the government has ordered many industries to, in effect, shut down for many months. In the case of the major airlines, such as United and Delta, the government has precluded many passengers from boarding planes and even shut down many flights....

Business interests have labeled it a stealth attack by pro-union forces. Most would-be GOP opponents of it on Capitol Hill were in the dark until it was too late – many still are. A provision in the sprawling $2.2 trillion relief legislation, which lawmakers rushed through Congress to help workers and employers in an economy cratering from a global pandemic, would impose a gag rule on mid-sized businesses when it comes to union efforts to organize workers. Businesses with between 500 and 10,000 employees that take a government loan under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic...

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, April 7, 2020. In the past 24 hours, some 1,500 Americans have died from the coronavirus, Britain’s prime minister has been put in intensive care, and political “leaders” in Wisconsin have chosen partisanship over common sense: The state will conduct a primary election today amid the lockdown. Yet, most people find a way to persevere and help each other through the pandemic. Actor John Krasinski has been producing a report on a YouTube channel he’s dubbed SGN (“Some Good News”) -- and...

The pandemic will change many things on this earth including, very likely, your life. But if you are looking for guidance and perspective on the post-virus world, you will not get that from America’s news agencies. Instead, you will see and read blatantly dishonest appraisals of the contagion situation designed to promote ideology and social engineering. The foolish presentations on many TV news programs are boring and depressing. More than a few “presenters,” as they call anchor people in England, are simply bewildered. They have no clue as to what is really...

Good morning. It’s Monday, April 6, 2020. In an alternative universe, which is to say, the normal reality that we’ve enjoyed for the past 80 years, the NCAA would crown its men’s basketball champion tonight. This year, there was no “March Madness” for men or women, just as there was no Opening Day in baseball and seasons were abruptly cut short in professional hockey, basketball, and soccer. The Kentucky Derby won’t be held on the first Saturday in May. Also delayed or postponed: the 84th edition of the Masters, the Indianapolis 500,...

The late Sen. Tom Coburn, author of “Wastebook,” was fearless in fighting what he described as "stupid spending." Now, perhaps more than ever before, we could use Senator Coburn and his watchful eye as our nation prepares to enter what will be the very trying aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis. In 2013, Time magazine named Coburn one of the 100 most influential people in the world. He earned criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for putting up procedural roadblocks to stop wasteful, excessive spending. More than once, Coburn was known to say: “I...

WASHINGTON (AP) — The chief judge of a secretive national security court demanded Friday that the FBI provide him with details about some of its investigations after the Justice Department inspector general identified problems with more than two dozen wiretap applications. The order from Judge James Boasberg signals growing concerns from the court that authorizes FBI surveillance about whether the bureau is providing inaccurate information when it applies to eavesdrop on suspected spies and terrorists.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a shift, the top leaders in Congress made it clear Friday there will be another coronavirus rescue package amid the stark need for federal resources to fight the pandemic and economic crisis. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, after days of publicly jousting over what’s next, began to outline fresh priorities signaling a potential thaw to the sniping and opportunity for renewed bipartisan ground. "There will be a next measure," McConnell said in an interview with The Associated...

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, is having a bit of a moment. Cuomo's state, and in particular his state's crown jewel metropolis, has emerged as ground zero of America's fight against the Wuhan coronavirus. The Empire State has been devastated by the epidemic, accounting for nearly half of the nation's confirmed cases and mortalities alike. Sadly, one of the most recent confirmed cases was Cuomo's own brother and CNN primetime anchor, Chris. As the virus has wreaked havoc, Cuomo's near-daily press briefings have emerged as a fixture of our 24/7...

Things are getting real. We are at over 47,000 deaths worldwide and over 5,000 deaths in the U.S. alone. Our top experts are modeling between 100,000 and 240,000 American deaths by the end of this crisis. Those are massive numbers. We lost nearly 3,000 on 9/11; we suffered 7,000 (so far) U.S. military deaths in the "war on terror" and 58,000 after 20 years in Vietnam. Early hopes that COVID-19 could be overblown have more than dwindled. If anything, we are learning more every day about how China has understated the deaths they have seen -- drastically understated, according to some...

MyPillow CEO Michael Lindell, a self-made former crack addict, is going to transform 75% of his manufacturing capacity to make 10,000 cotton face masks per day by the end of the week, ramping up production to 50,000 a day in a month. That sounds like a patriotic act to me, especially given that Lindell is undertaking the effort without being forced to do so by a federal agency. I hope the guy becomes a billionaire after this is all over. NBC? Not so much. The headline on its "analysis" of Lindell's remarks was "Trump fluffs MyPillow in Rose Garden." This matched the...

Faced with the greatest public health threat in a century, we are stumbling in the dark. Each day's death toll is treated as a shock, rather than what it ought to be -- a fire bell in the night. Only on April 1, for example, did Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issue a stay-at-home order. As recently as March 28 -- even as refrigerator trucks were parking outside New York hospitals to serve as overflow morgues -- many of Florida's beaches were packed. Responding to criticism, DeSantis said he was taking cues from the White House. "If any of those task force folks tell me that we...
