Simply Infanticide

Posted · Add Comment

The mask is off. The Democratic party is for abortion on demand, up to and past the point of birth. It is simply infanticide. Earlier this month, New York passed a bill that allows abortion at any point during the pregnancy if the health-care practitioner (no longer necessarily an actual medical doctor) deems it necessary […]

Ill-served by the media

Posted · Add Comment

We’re being ill-served by the media. Despite the oft-repeated chest-thumping that “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” or “Speaking Truth to Power,” the majority of the mainstream media is suffering from both Trump Derangement Syndrome—the inclination to take any claim which puts Donald Trump in a bad light as automatically true—and simply lazy reporting. That was the […]

Posted · Add Comment

The latest news is that the migrant caravan from Central America, currently stalled in Tijuana, marched to the U.S. consulate there and demanded either entrance to the United States, or a $50,000 per person in reparations for them to go home. This makes me think that most of the migrants are of French extraction: De Gaulle […]

The 2018 election aftermath is a flat, dry wasteland with the sun-bleached skulls of of the defeated dotting the desolate landscape. At least, that’s how it seems to be portrayed on Twitter. Predictions: Correct! My predictions from election day—which were really nothing more than the conventional wisdom—turned out to be correct. With a handful of […]

Today is Election Day 2018, unless you’re a Democrat, in which case it’s tomorrow. The nice thing about running your own site, is that that old, lame joke doesn’t get you banned. What’s going to happen? Answer: I don’t know. The consensus seems to be that the Democrats will take the House; by 20+ seats […]

Kavanaugh Confirmed

Saturday afternoon, Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Justice Brett Kavanaugh after being confirmed by the Senate in a 50-48 vote. Two weeks ago I appeared on Dave Congalton’s radio show to talk about my two previous posts on the Kavanaugh confirmation process and the more recent live testimony by Kavanaugh and his primary accuser, Christine Blasey […]

The Sliming Of Kavanaugh Continues

Posted · Add Comment

Another day, another baseless charge against Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the sliming continues. Some on the political right encouraged the Senate last week to ignore the non-credible and unsupported charges of Christine Blasey Ford and go ahead and confirm Kavanaugh to a seat on the Supreme Court. They argued that Ford’s repeated requests for delays […]
