The Las Vegas Atrocity

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 04:14:26 +0000

My wife awakened me this morning to tell me about the mass shooting in Las Vegas. The number of dead then numbered 50, making it the worst mass shooting in modern American history, it has since climbed to 59. More than 500 others were injured from not just gunfire, but shrapnel, trampling and other trauma [...]

Antifa’s assault on freedom

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 03:53:35 +0000

In Berkeley, Calif., this past weekend, the masked, jack-booted thugs of Antifa again demonstrated their more fascist tendencies when they attacked Trump-supporters, beating at least five of them.

Pleading incompetence to avoid libel damages

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 23:19:47 +0000

Former Alaska Gov. and Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for libel after it accused her in an editorial earlier this year of inspiring madman Jared Loughner to attack Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. I’m no fan of Sarah Palin, especially after she used what little Tea Party-related credibility she had when she [...]

Defending the 2nd Amendment

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 00:42:28 +0000

A couple of weeks ago I volunteered to go on local radio host Dave Congalton’s show in the wake of the shootings in Alexandria, Va., and San Francisco, defending the 2nd Amendment from the inevitable calls for more (ineffectual) gun control. You can listen to my appearance here, but William Moser wasn’t happy with my [...]
