Antifa's assault on freedom

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 […]

Wednesday's shootings and the folly of gun control laws

Evil people do evil things, and it's folly to believe that more gun control laws will stop them Shortly after 7 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time Wednesday morning a lone gunman with a rifle approached a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., where congressmen and staffers were practicing for a charity baseball game scheduled for later this […]

How Impeachment Works

Since Donald Trump was unexpectedly elected President of the United States, foes on the left, and to a lesser extent the political right, have contemplated the impeachment and removal from office of the tiny-handed, comb-overed vulgarian. Unfortunately, many aren't too clear on exactly how impeachment works. Saturday evening, a link to a post from the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Women's March in SLO

I'll be attending Saturday's Women's March in San Luis Obispo, not as a participant, but as an observer. This won't be the first protest I've attended, just the first in quite some time. I'm going for one primary reason: One of the speakers here in San Luis Obispo is the Chief of Police, Deanna Cantrell. […]

Silencing dissent on abortion

The left has its idols: the Earth, "free" healthcare, and abortion. The greatest of these is abortion. Here in California, the legislature and Gov. Jerry Brown were concerned that women undergoing unplanned pregnancies weren't killing their children at a high enough rate and turning to largely religiously run crisis pregnancy centers for support and counseling. […]

The fall of the Southern Poverty Law Center

Before I was born, the Southern Poverty Law Center was, along with the NAACP, a bastion of the civil rights movement. The organization has spent decades fighting racism, segregation and bigotry. That period of the group's history is no more. The SPLC has moved on from its noble beginnings to a new era where it […]

My weekend column and other thoughts

My weekend column for the local media outlet, the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available and it focuses on the contempt too many politicians—both left and right—have for our constitution. I think we'd have a much less divided and contentious nation if there was less government meddling in places where it has no constitutional sanction. The […]

Dawn Ortiz-Legg continued

My column in this week's San Luis Obispo Tribune addresses a TV ad from local Assembly candidate Democrat Dawn Ortiz-Legg attacking her GOP opponent Jordan Cunningham. Ms. Ortiz-Legg was kind enough to spend about 20 minutes on the phone addressing various issues of interest to me. Gun control Ortiz-Legg's website has a single paragraph devoted to […]

🧵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.
