Donald Trump’s First 100 Days

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 15:52:56 +0000

Yesterday I went on the Dave Congalton show on 920 KVEC to discuss Donald Trump’s First 100 Days in office. As is the usual, I always enjoy talking with Dave and often the callers give me good reason to laugh—sometimes in agreement and sometimes…well, you know. If you’re interested, you can listen to the show [...]

California’s State Religion

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 23:29:37 +0000

If it wasn’t clear before, it should be clear now: Moloch worship is California’s State Religion. Moloch was the ancient Caananite god of child sacrifice who has become the de facto patron of Planned Parenthood and the nation’s Democratic Party. California, a single-party state, has instituted a series of laws and used the power of the [...]

My Latest Radio Appearance

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 23:00:42 +0000

In case you missed it, you can listen to my latest radio appearance here. Dave Congalton and I talked about the death of Matt Frank, also known as SLOStringer, the recent libel verdict against Cal Coast News and the San Luis Obispo Tribune’s failure to live up to its code of ethics. For the record, I sent the link [...]

Newspaper ethics

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 01:26:17 +0000

This past weekend, in the wake of a $1.1 million libel judgment against, the San Luis Obispo Tribune published a piece from its editor, Sandra Duerr, touting the paper’s code of ethics. As newspaper ethics statements go, it’s a pretty good one. However, Ms. Duerr appears to have a training problem on her staff. ▪  If [...]

More speech, not less

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 04:00:29 +0000

The political left’s catch-all solution for speech they don’t like is to propose a new law, regulation or two-minutes of hate targeted to silence the offender. For conservatives and old-school, small “l” liberals, the answer to “bad” speech is more speech, not less. Enter California Assemblyman Ed Chau, a Democrat (obviously), has introduced Assembly Bill [...]

American ingenuity

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 17:52:48 +0000

Starting January 1st, the state of California changed its “assault weapon” laws to include evil black rifles equipped with bullet buttons in the definition. This latest crackdown will fail, thanks to good ol’ American ingenuity. The original bullet button was created in response to a state law that defined an assault rifle, in part, as [...]

Shut up, they said

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 19:06:24 +0000

Two events this past week illustrate exactly how illiberal and totalitarian the political left in this country has become in the months since it became clear they hold exactly zero levers of power in Washington, D.C., with the election of President Donald Trump. They don’t want to hear what the right has to say, they [...]

Radio Appearance

Yesterday I had the opportunity to talk with local radio talk show host Dave Congalton on his Hometown Radio show on 920 KVEC for an hour. You can find the audio of our discussion here. We talked briefly about the decision of the San Luis Obispo Tribune to let me go as their conservative columnist, media bias [...]

California’s coming crime wave

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 18:13:58 +0000

Mark my words: California’s coming crime wave is real, and it’s going to be spectacular. California’s crime rate, like that of the rest of the nation, had been declining for decades. Democratic politicians credited the decline on the state’s incessant (and excessive) gun control laws. Republicans pointed to the passage of the three strikes law [...]

My Final Tribune Column

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 19:17:58 +0000

  My final Tribune column appeared in yesterday’s print edition of the San Luis Obispo Tribune. The decision to end my column was made by the powers that be at the paper, and the logic is described in a column by the paper’s editor, Sandra Duerr. Let me make that one minor fact clear: I did not [...]
