Paris Climate Craziness

Posted · Add Comment

Yesterday, President Donald Trump announced that he would be pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, much to the hysterical dismay of those whose religion is catastrophic anthropogenic  global warming climate change. Responses on Twitter took two disparate tracks: one was that the world would be ending shortly; and that the Paris agreement was really a […]

An Open Letter to a “Small Church” Pastor

Posted · Add Comment

Dear Peter, Do you prefer Peter, or is Pete OK? I read your open letter to Franklin Graham, and I have mixed feelings about it. First, let me say that I wholeheartedly agree with you that the embrace of Donald Trump by many Christian pastors was unseemly at best and a serious blow to their […]

Trust no one

Donald Trump has been president of the United States for just over 5 months, and the mainstream media is still in perpetual outrage mode. One thing is clear: Don’t trust the initial reporting on anything. Yesterday the Washington Post published a story about a 2016 meeting between Republicans Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and others where they confirmed […]

A nation of laws, not men

Posted · Add Comment

One of the items that guarantees our freedom is that we are a nation of laws, not men. In other words, the law is blind to your station in life. The law cares not whether you are wealthy and connected, or destitute and despised—justice is the same no matter what. At least, that’s the theory. […]

How Impeachment Works

Posted · Add Comment

Since Donald Trump was unexpectedly elected President of the United States, foes on the left, and to a lesser extent the political right, have contemplated the impeachment and removal from office of the tiny-handed, comb-overed vulgarian. Unfortunately, many aren’t too clear on exactly how impeachment works. Saturday evening, a link to a post from the […]

Donald Trump’s First 100 Days

Posted · Add Comment

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

Posted · Add Comment

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 […]

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

Newspaper ethics

Posted · 3 Comments

This past weekend, in the wake of a $1.1 million libel judgment against CalCoastNews.com, 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

More speech, not less

Posted · Add Comment

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 […]
