Newspaper ethics

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

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 […]

American ingenuity

Starting January 1st, the state of California changed its "assault weapon" laws to include evil black rifles equipped with bullet buttons in the definition. This latest crackdown will fail, thanks to good ol' American ingenuity. The original bullet button was created in response to a state law that defined an assault rifle, in part, as […]

Shut up, they said

Two events this past week illustrate exactly how illiberal and totalitarian the political left in this country has become in the months since it became clear they hold exactly zero levers of power in Washington, D.C., with the election of President Donald Trump. They don't want to hear what the right has to say, they […]

California's coming crime wave

Mark my words: California's coming crime wave is real, and it's going to be spectacular. California's crime rate, like that of the rest of the nation, had been declining for decades. Democratic politicians credited the decline on the state's incessant (and excessive) gun control laws. Republicans pointed to the passage of the three strikes law […]

My Final Tribune Column

  My final Tribune column appeared in yesterday's print edition of the San Luis Obispo Tribune. The decision to end my column was made by the powers that be at the paper, and the logic is described in a column by the paper's editor, Sandra Duerr. Let me make that one minor fact clear: I did not […]

A tale of two marches

My column this week is about a tale of two marches. I make what I believe to be the rather obvious case that the people who attended the Women's March here in San Luis Obispo two weeks ago are the same people (though in much smaller numbers) that showed up this past Tuesday in an attempt to […]

Los Angeles Times Gun Ignorance

The Los Angeles Times is your typical big-city newspaper full of hoplophobic know-nothings whose gun ignorance is a badge of honor. Earlier this month, the Times opined, one of the nation's largest newspapers, that allowing concealed weapons on college campuses is a "silly, and dangerous, idea." As is to be expected when it comes to gun-ban advocates—and make […]

Transcript of the Hulu 1619 Project segment on Dunmore's Proclamation.

Again, none of this is true. Dunmore issued his order from exile on a ship off of Norfolk. He fled Williamsburg 5 months earlier (with his own slaves in tow) because the revolution was already underway.

I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in the state of Tennessee one month ago. At no time was I refused care and at no time was anyone restricted from saving my life, even though my baby did die. This is misinformation that could prevent women from seeking help. https://twitter.com/whitehouse/status/1617254668488278017

The White House @WhiteHouse

In states where abortion is restricted, doctors live in fear of being thrown in jail for simply doing their job.

Dr. Zahedi-Spung shares her story as we call on Congress to protect reproductive freedom for the people of America.
