The Red Wave That Wasn't

In a midterm election where inflation over the past year has topped 8 percent, gasoline prices top $5/gallon in California and are nearly $4/gallon in most other states, well over half of those polled say the country is on the wrong track, and Joe Biden's job approval at just 42 percent, the Republican Party fell […]

Staying inside your political bubble

The rise of social media, partisan cable news stations, and, yes, political blogs and websites have had an unfortunate effect of making it easier to insulate oneself from views with which you disagree. Today, you can create a nearly impenetrable political bubble that reflects back approval and assurance that you're on the right side of […]

The Congress as an Appendix

Not the section at the back of a book, but rather the organ in the human body that once may have had a function—but does no longer does. Nearly a year ago (I've been busy with other things), I wrote a long essay decrying the breakdown of our constitutional system. Presidents Obama, Trump and Biden […]

Orange man gone

By the time I hit the "Publish" button on this post, orange man bad will have miraculously turned into orange man gone. I've made no secret of my view over the past four years the Donald Trump was a man uniquely unsuited to the presidency. Orange Man bad before election day An egotistical narcissist, Trump […]

Too many Americans have lost their freaking minds

If the current political season is any indication (and it probably is) then there is plenty of evidence that too many people have lost their freaking minds. Two months ago, one of my friends on Facebook linked to this Gallup survey headlined: "25% in U.S. Say Neither Candidate Would Be a Good President." My succinct […]

Politics on Facebook

For the record, I try to keep politics off my personal Facebook page. I'm a segregationist; Politics is on Twitter, what's going on in my life is on Facebook. (Watch someone take that out of context.) However, if other people are putting all their political garbage on Twitter, I will occasionally comment. Which brings us […]

Media Fact-Checking Failures

The past couple of weeks have been especially bad for media fact-checking. Two incidents really stand out as the ostensibly unbiased, objective national media have gone all-in on their war on President Donald Trump, their own credibility be damned. Media Not  Interested in Fact-Checking Sen. Tammy Duckworth Two Sundays ago, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) appeared […]

Media Bias at the Local Level

Yesterday, radio talk show host Dave Congalton marked his 27th year hosting his Hometown Radio show on 920 KVEC in San Luis Obispo. One of his guests was Joe Tarica, the San Luis Obispo Tribune's new editor. You can listen to the interview here. Before taking calls (including mine) for the second half of the show, […]

The Migrant Caravan and Reparations

The latest news is that the migrant caravan from Central America, currently stalled in Tijuana, marched to the U.S. consulate there and demanded either entrance to the United States, or a $50,000 per person in reparations for them to go home. This makes me think that most of the migrants are of French extraction: De Gaulle […]

Shutting Down the Government

We're doing the shutting down the government thing again? President Trump met today in the White House with Democrat leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer to talk about the president's priorities and the long and short of it came down to this: If Congress (one-half of which will be run by the Democrats) […]

Politico today was a kneepads treatment of Warnock.

I don't mind someone thinks he was a better choice than Walker, but my G-d is he horrible and they touched on none of it. The lying in the corporate media is insane.

You could tell immediately from this NY Times article that the President of Peru is a leftist because the NY Times never mentions it. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/07/world/americas/peru-pedro-castillo-coup.html?smtyp=cur&smid=tw-nytimes
