Partisan media

I talked for about a half hour last week with one of my former colleagues at the San Diego Union-Tribune. The phone call was mostly about catching up with what had been going on in our lives and partly to discuss the goings-on at the paper. Tim Sullivan's ouster was one subject of discussion, as […]

What if…

Over at Sublime Bloviations, they've taken Politifact to the woodshed once again over a “Half-True” claim by President Obama that “Romney outsourced call center jobs to India.” I’ll summarize the situation for you. Back in 2004, when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, the legislature sent him a bill that contained a provision banning state contractors […]

Advice for journalists

I received an email Tuesday afternoon from Politifact reporter Molly Moorhead. I’m not going to share it with you. What I am going to do is write some things that aforementioned letter inspired. Yes, I’d make an excellent editor. I’m not your editor. My goal isn’t to make your reporting better—it’s to hold you accountable […]

GOP Pledge-O-Meter: Promise Kept

In 2009, Judicial Watch made a big splash when they revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been using military aircraft to travel to and from her home district in California to the tune of millions of taxpayer dollars. The spendthrift nature of the Democrat-controlled Congress was a key election issue in 2010 and Speaker […]

Your tax dollars at work

This might be funny if it weren't for the fact that these are tax dollars and real people's livelihood involved. A politically connected, taxpayer-funded solar firm announced a massive round of furloughs on Friday, just weeks after its chairman told Congress his company was “financially strong.” First Solar, an Arizona-based solar panel manufacturer that received […]

Politifraud continues

It wasn't just Politifraud's "fact"-check of that Crossroads GPS ad that drew my ire this week as I looked at their latest analyses. It was also this whopper that purported to show that the same president who's presided over the addition of $5 trillion to the national debt in less than five years—and would've spent […]

Dishonest hacks

The self-appointed “fact”-checkers at Politifraud are at it again. This time they’re going after a Crossroads GPS ad that makes a point that I’ve been making for years; President Obama’s promise that “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.” It was a lie. Anyone with half […]

If there's one thing that President Barack Obama has managed to do over the past two years it's been to bring Democrats and Republicans together—in unanimous opposition to his budget. A budget resolution based on President Obama’s 2013 budget failed to get any votes in the Senate on Wednesday. In a 99-0 vote, all of […]

What Asimov couldn't have imagined

When I was in high school many eons ago, I went on a kick reading a bunch of books written by science-fiction great Isaac Asimov. Over a period of a few months, I probably read close to two dozen of Asimov's books. About a month ago, I decided to give some of them a re-read […]

Idiot of the Day

Here in San Luis Obispo County, plastic grocery bags are soon to become a thing of the past. They're useful, cheap and convenient, so they must be snuffed out in the name of doing it "for the children." It seems Los Angeles may be following suit. I want to highlight two items regarding this isssue. […]

Yesterday, I visited a senior living complex.

I met a little old lady sitting in a wheelchair with a tube in her nose.

When she saw me, she lit up, moved her tube, and said,
“Kick Rand Paul’s ass!”

The room erupted.

I put my hand on her shoulder and calmly said, “Yes Ma’am.”

Rust Assistant Director Backs Up Baldwin's Account https://bearingarms.com/tomknighton/2021/12/03/rust-baldwin-n52882

But unlikely. Since no reports of injuries to Baldwin's hand.
