Media Bias, Illustrated

I've been less interested in media bias this election cycle mostly because #NeverTrump. I don't want readers to be mistaken that my criticism as to how his orangeness is treated by the media is a defense of the cheeto jesus. But this is getting ridiculous. The most interesting, and substantive, bit of news out of the […]

Donald Trump, Republican

The Republican Party this week handed its presidential nomination to Donald Trump. Let me put this as succinctly as I can: If Trump represents the Republican Party, then that's not a party I can be part of. You can read more about my reasons and what I think of the GOP in my San Luis […]

Two years ago, two NYPD officers were killed as they sat in their marked car by a black man angry about the death of Eric Garner and strong-arm robber Michael Brown.

The Cutting Room Floor

So, here's some thoughts on Donald Trump's that ended up on the cutting room floor from my weekend column. Trump's Identity Trump also lies about who he is.

Coming this weekend

I just hit "send" on the email containing this weekend's column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune. The subject is faux Republican Donald Trump and why conservatives shouldn't vote for him. Writing the column late last night there were quite a few paragraphs that ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor. I'll craft those into […]

Religion and Politics

I'm generally not enthusiastic about politicians invoking their religion as either a sword or a shield in election battles. Most of the time it's unseemly, and, considering what one generally has to do to make the national stage as a politician, it's largely a façade.

SMOD 2016

The 2016 presidential race has finally reached the point where I am hoping and praying for SMOD 2016 to win the election. For those of you unfamiliar with SMOD, it's the Sweet Meteor of Death, a meteor of extinction level power that would spell the end of every life on earth. It's the candidate we […]

It is now an inevitability that whatever the story, however complex its details, members of the American press will react by announcing who must be forbidden to speak going forward. https://www.nationalreview.com/2022/11/when-journalists-become-speech-police/

Rep.-elect John James (MI) and Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt (TX) are close friends and are first two Black graduates of West Point to enter Congress. They are even from the same class! Both Republicans. No surprise there have been almost zero national media profiles of either or both.
