The Wrong Way to Restore Media Credibility

Posted · Add Comment

Today, at the behest of the Boston Globe, more than 350 newspapers, large and small, are publishing editorials taking aim at President Donald Trump’s constant complaining about “Fake News” and the biased news media. This is the wrong way to restore media credibility in the people who already mistrust what reporters are telling them. Two papers […]

Jerusalem Embassy

The U.S. Embassy opens in Jerusalem

Posted · Add Comment

For more than 20 years, U.S. presidents have put off moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as directed by overwhelming majorities in Congress in the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. Yesterday, the United States finally made it official. I’ve said before that I would praise President Donald Trump when he […]

Donald Trump’s Media Awards

Posted · Add Comment

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. Trump would like to these awards to shame the members of the media who receive them; […]

Sexual assault is a serious crime

Posted · Add Comment

Sexual assault is a serious crime, and it should be treated as such. Since 2011, when the Obama administration’s Education Department released its infamous “Dear Colleague” letter, many colleges and universities have taken it upon themselves to create a legal system that bears more in common with star chambers than with the legal regime under the […]

I told you so

Posted · Add Comment

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. I told you Donald Trump couldn’t be trusted. I told you he was a showman. A salesman who sold only one product: himself. Even his most die-hard supporters are coming to the realization that maybe they were wrong about the longtime Democratic […]

DACA

DACA, the law, and doing the right thing

Posted · Add Comment

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA as it is more popularly known, will be winding down in six months (maybe) and the media and the American left (but I repeat myself) are in full-blown meltdown mode. A brief history of DACA: After years of claiming (accurately) that the constitution prohibited him from making something […]

Antifa’s assault on freedom

Posted · Add Comment

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. I will be appearing on local talk radio host Dave Congalton’s show for an hour Tuesday to talk about Antifa and the violence that is the norm […]

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 […]
