Media Bias, Political Speech, and Fake News

Another week, another entry in the annals of media bias, political speech and fake news. At last week's State of the Union Address to Congress, President Donald Trump channelled his inner reality show persona and crafted a number of applause lines by recognizing several invited guests whom you really can't help but tip your hat […]

Gavin Newsom's war on the poor, middle class

Democrats have had plenary power in California politics for the better part of two decades, and they've done little to help the poor and the middle class. Gov. Gavin Newsom has done nothing to improve things. While the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline is currently $2.64, in California it's a whopping $4.18. […]

Democrats and Voting Rights

I received the email pictured above on Sunday from the DNC. I'm on their mailing list so I can see what they're all riled up about on any particular day. Sunday was Rep. John Lewis and voting rights. Can you identify the problem? Yep, he thinks "every person in this country has the right to […]

Simply Infanticide

The mask is off. The Democratic party is for abortion on demand, up to and past the point of birth. It is simply infanticide. Earlier this month, New York passed a bill that allows abortion at any point during the pregnancy if the health-care practitioner (no longer necessarily an actual medical doctor) deems it necessary […]

Election Day 2018

Today is Election Day 2018, unless you're a Democrat, in which case it's tomorrow. The nice thing about running your own site, is that that old, lame joke doesn't get you banned. What's going to happen? Answer: I don't know. The consensus seems to be that the Democrats will take the House; by 20+ seats […]

Kavanaugh Confirmed

Saturday afternoon, Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Justice Brett Kavanaugh after being confirmed by the Senate in a 50-48 vote. Two weeks ago I appeared on Dave Congalton's radio show to talk about my two previous posts on the Kavanaugh confirmation process and the more recent live testimony by Kavanaugh and his primary accuser, Christine Blasey […]

The Sliming Of Kavanaugh Continues

Another day, another baseless charge against Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the sliming continues. Some on the political right encouraged the Senate last week to ignore the non-credible and unsupported charges of Christine Blasey Ford and go ahead and confirm Kavanaugh to a seat on the Supreme Court. They argued that Ford's repeated requests for delays […]

Banning plastic straws

Research done by a 9-year-old has identified the newest environmental evil: plastic straws. Now woke cities across the nation are banning plastic straws. Over at Reason magazine, Christian Britschgi lays out the numbers, and the ultimate effect (none) that the bans will have on plastic straw pollution. At most, straws account for about 2,000 tons of […]

Today in Nanny-Statism

Today in Nanny-Statism: California Assemblyman Ian Calderon wants to bring the full force of the government down on restaurant waitstaff who drop that handful of straws on your table as they deliver your beverages. Assembly Bill 1884 would make it a misdemeanor, punishable by up to $1,000 and six months in county jail, if a […]

DACA, the law, and doing the right thing

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 […]

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.

The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
