Has everyone lost their minds?

Posted · Add Comment

If the last year or so since Donald Trump won the presidency is any indication, then the answer is: “Yes, everyone has lost their minds.” Trump is unsuited for high office, let alone the presidency. But what’s really become apparent over the past few months is how woefully inept and irresponsible the mainstream media has […]

President Trump has announced that he will be awarding “THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” [capitalization in the original] this Monday at 5 p.m. *Yawn* A few obvious points: Substantive media criticism is not Trump’s forté.

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 […]

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 […]

California’s State Religion

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 […]

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 […]
