Susan Collins, Andy Puzder, Elon Musk, and Regaining Dignity

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 12:48:39 +0000

While Kelly Ayotte is helping Neil Gorsuch to walk the halls of Congress and meet and greet senators, Susan Collins is suddenly becoming a royal pain in the backside for this administration. The moderate Maine GOP senator has been on the no side for 2 Cabinet choices. Her no vote did not manage to prevent […]



The White House Needs a Clear Chain of Command

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 21:18:33 +0000

It’s not even 4 weeks into it’s mandate yet, and the Trump administration is besieged on almost all sides by forces bent on discrediting and even, in some cases one suspects, displacing it from power. The so-called resistance is coming from many angles: Obama’s PAC Organizing for America morphed into Organizing for Action in 2013 […]



A New World Order With No Borders

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 22:20:27 +0000

Immigration law is coming to get you, and bring you back to America. Even if you’re an alien with no visa and no permanent legal status as a lawful resident of America. It might not happen tomorrow, but if people like George Mason law professor Ilya Somin, and others, have their way, this strange day […]



What Washington State’s Lawsuit Is Really About

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 22:36:35 +0000

Guess what? It’s all about the money. Washington State AG Bob Ferguson might have preached about his state’s lawsuit against President Trump’s executive order on immigration being about defending the constitution. And the separation of powers. But the basis for his Washington’s lawsuit against Trump is really about damages to the state government coffers. Let […]



Did DHS Leak FBI Terrorism Reports to the Daily Beast?

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 23:24:18 +0000

The feisty little glowheads at The Daily Beast must be soaring and swooning like fireflies on a warm August night. Thanks to some unnamed official at an undisclosed but perhaps deducible agency, the hard left media outlet now can share with a salivating public, confidential data on the security of both of America’s borders. The […]



Fear Your High School Yearbook

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 21:27:48 +0000

We had our high school yearbook photographs taken on the stone front steps. In winter as I recall. My pants were checkered and slightly flared and my shirt had a big collar. It was the mid-70’s ok? And I take full responsibility for my sartorial choices. What I take no responsibility for, however, is the […]



David Frum and the End of America

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 18:16:19 +0000

In the middle of David Frum’s Phillip Roth-like portrait in The Atlantic of a dark and authoritarian America under Trump, his contempt for a central tenet of America’s republican system of government slips through. He compares the consequences of a loss of confidence in Britain on the part of the Prime Minister by her or […]



Is Jerry Brown Dreaming of California’s Secession?

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 21:28:07 +0000

Did you know that 65% of Californians want an end to sanctuary cities? Sorry, that’s incorrect. 65% of Hispanic Californians want an end to sanctuary cities. 70% of Independents, 73% of Democrats, and 82% of Republicans in California all agree. Come on, this must have been a USC/LA Times poll, right? The one that actually […]



Science and the March of Life

Sat, 28 Jan 2017 00:30:54 +0000

To the Facebook group that claims 150,000 members and is planning a Science March on Washington, in defense of Climate Change views, for sometime this spring: there already is a science march. It’s happening today, Friday January 27, 2017. It’s called the March for Life. As science and technology are able to present ever better […]



Mary Tyler Moore’s Legacy Belongs to All of Us

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 18:38:21 +0000

I remember Mary Tyler Moore looking anxious and very nervous at the Oscars in 81, where she had been nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Redford’s Ordinary People. She had lost her son the previous October, just as she achieved a milestone with that film. One more milestone in an already incredible […]



Trump’s Team Face Masks Main Stream Media

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 17:51:35 +0000

How dare White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer go to the New York Post for the first question? When the big networks were all primed to discuss the weekend skirmish over crowd size, and Sean Spicer’s loyal defense on Saturday of a clearly annoyed President Trump. And then pick on the Christian Broadcasting Network for […]



The Inaugural Speech – Does It Truly Matter What Trump Says?

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 15:37:40 +0000

Friday January 20, President Trump will address the nation, and the world. But his inaugural address is for America. Not the world. As much as the world will be watching, indeed many around the world watching uneasily because they sense their privileges and prosperity may be affected by Trump’s presidency. What will he say? Democrats […]



A Letter to Manuel Lin Miranda

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 00:20:13 +0000

Oscar Lopez Rivera returned from active duty in Vietnam to Chicago in 1967, the year Che Guevara was captured and executed as the Argentine terrorist who was Castro’s henchman and was an even crazier radical. The Che who later tried to inspire a revolution among reluctant Bolivian campesinos who were far more obedient to Moscow […]



Liberals Be Afraid – Trump’s Policies Might Work

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:04:35 +0000

As the global elite – the wealthy, wonky mandarins of globalization – gather in Davos, that D.C. fortress of statistics and wrong-headed policy recipes, the IMF, delivered a stark warning on the effects of Trump’s incoming administration. Global growth estimates have been revised. Upward. As Merkel and Trump fire shots across each other’s bows, and […]



How to Write Like a Dumb Russian Hacker

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 21:45:33 +0000

How sloppy has America’s intelligence community gotten? It’s a valid question, and one that Masha Gessen – the Russian American journalist/activist – explores with a careful rigor in a NY Review of Books article. A rigor that one wishes was in the report the intel community delivered to Congress, Obama, Trump, and the waiting world […]



Justice for the Emanuel Nine

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 16:51:03 +0000

On the 10th day of the first month of 2017, 12 jurors returned a death sentence for Dylann Roof. Not one of them decided to spare the unrepentant killer who ended the lives of the Emanuel Nine. A librarian, a speech therapist, a state senator, heads of families, mothers of teenage children. If these people […]



Imagine DNI Carly Fiorina Handling Spear Phishing

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 20:10:26 +0000

The storm continues over Russia’s intentions. But no one, including the President-Elect, can seriously argue that Russian operatives were not involved in the DNC and Podesta hacks and subsequent leaks. What effect those leaks had on the voting public last November 8, however, can be debated. But now, there is apparently information about another recent […]



James Clapper to Unleash the Public Report Next Week

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 17:42:09 +0000

The Democrats used to insist, a few long weeks ago, that FBI Director Comey was the reason why Hillary lost the election. Now it seems they prefer to blame the Russian hack: a term which suggests that Russian intelligence operatives or associates directly hacked the elections in America on November 8, 2016. Which is completely […]



Obama Wants Democrats to Avoid Talking About Healthcare Policy

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 15:29:27 +0000

By Tuesday, January 3, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi had already introduced a budget resolution aimed at resurrecting Congress’ previous attempt at repealing Obamacare. An attempt vetoed by Obama, of course, last year. A repeal bill is scheduled to be presented by January 27. That’s in a little over 3 weeks, which is at […]



Sneaking in Through the Back Door With Bob Goodlatte

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 17:39:12 +0000

Oh Commonwealth of Virginia! What the heck is your problem? Is it that your valleys and hills enfold the nation’s capital, creating some of the wealthiest suburbs in America? And that proximity creates a sense of privilege? At least in those zip codes well within the beltway. First there’s Mcauliffe, your governor. A partisan with […]



The Emerging Spy Wars With Russia

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 17:22:06 +0000

From CNN to FoxNews. From the New York Times to BBC World. Putin is everywhere. Yeltsin, no stranger to the world press, would have killed for this sort of publicity. And Gorbachev was on the front pages – if not the web pages; it was the late 80’s and early 90’s after all – usually […]



Obama Is the Chief Resister

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 21:58:07 +0000

Of course Trump and Obama have had nice phone calls. Obama is the master needler: gracious in private, but in public his eyes glowing with a subtle malice, as his voice, oh-so-reasonable, explains to his uncomprehending students/media/opponents why they shouldn’t be enraged by his acts. Remember this past summer, when he strolled through the courtyard […]



2016 – Losing a Duke and a Princess

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 02:14:02 +0000

We lost a duke in January. Thin, white, and filled with energy and creation right down to his last days in New York City. We now lose a princess in December. Too warm to be truly caustic with her wit, too witty to be truly tragic in her struggles with her demons, and a fame […]



What Will Trump Do With the Resistance?

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 02:09:08 +0000

Still stunned by Hillary’s loss of the 2016 election due to evil, archaic constructs like the Electoral College? Still in need of a safe space to spit and rage at all those bigoted fools who don’t agree with your hard-left, progressive vision of America? Take heart! Thou hast a lifeline to grab hold of and […]



Aleppo’s Ghosts – From Berlin to Ankara

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 23:30:09 +0000

Thank goodness for German authorities. Having quickly stated that the crazed truck driver and his accomplice(s?) had engaged in an act of terrorism, the dork at BBC World covering the tragedy could safely quote them. Rather than actually state the obvious all by his lonesome, and say that by all accounts this was yet another […]



The Electors’ Song – a Reminder

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 21:20:37 +0000

They’re stuffing your mailboxes Your inbox’s filled to the brim The phone won’t stop ringing Till they get ya to give in They’re threatening, begging, and pleading with you All them Liberals lining up In a Hollywood vi-de-o But you ain’t no civil servant The Party Picked you So do your darn job Or your […]



Bad Security at DNC Does not Mean Trump Is Nixon

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 21:43:31 +0000

Your face is lit by the glow of a laptop screen. The lines of code reflect across your glasses as the camera zooms in even closer, and your pupils narrow to two shining points of light. The tense preoccupation in your face morphs into astonished surprise, and then into hard-edged satisfaction, as you type code […]



What Tillerson’s Coming Nomination Battle Will Mean

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 20:18:31 +0000

What had been a running subplot throughout the campaign is now front and center. It’s all about Russia. Russia’s relationship with the President-Elect. More specifically Putin’s relationship with Trump. And with Rex Tillerson, Trump’s surprise nominee for Secretary of State. It’s all about the Russian hack and how Trump opponents have now pinned their last […]



John Glenn and the Attack at OSU

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:59:54 +0000

John Glenn would have likely been quietly resting in his condo in downtown Columbus, OH, when Abdul Arzak Ali Artan drove his Honda Civic into a crowd outside the Department of Materials Science and Engineering building on OSU’s sprawling campus, about 10 days ago. It’s hard to know whether he learned of the attack and […]



Mark Weston’s Great Tax Withholding Rebellion

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 18:29:07 +0000

Mark Weston has a running grudge against the Electoral College, and is willing to do just about anything to dismantle it. But what he really has grudge against, is the fact that large swaths of America are conservative, not progressive. And what really bothers him, enough to write a book or two on the subject, […]
