A Suggestion for Donald Trump

February 19th, 2021 10:46 PM

Washington -- Saturday was a good day for the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. The First Amendment has been validated once again, this time by the United States Senate. Simply by speaking his mind, Citizen Donald Trump committed no crime on Jan. 6. That was when he addressed a large crowd telling them they should march "peacefully" and "patriotically." He told them they should "…

Earth to Bill Gates: Where’s the Beef?

February 19th, 2021 9:43 PM

What is it about people who are successful in one field and believe that gives them credence to serve as an expert in a totally unrelated field? Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and reportedly the fourth richest person on the planet, now self-identifies as a climate expert, and not only an expert, but a fervent disciple of the latest religion for the non-religious, which would be "climate…

What Left-Wing Educators Don't Teach During ‘Black History Month’

February 19th, 2021 8:20 PM

When will Black History Month be ... history? Apart from the bizarre notion that educators should set aside one month to salute the historical achievements of one race apart from and above the historical achievements of other races, Black History Month appears to omit a lot of Black history. About slavery, do our mostly left-wing educators teach that slavery was not unique to America and is as…

Rush Limbaugh: A Loving Brother and ‘a Friend to Countless Americans’

February 19th, 2021 8:05 PM

I am uniquely blessed to be Rush Limbaugh's brother in ways too numerous to count, and I am blessed to be in the special position of witnessing firsthand the outpouring of love and prayers from his, family, friends and fans. His wife, Kathryn, has been amazing and a rock throughout. I could fill a book with the well-wishes I've received. I sent Rush a link to my “mentions” column on Twitter so…

Big Tech's Growing Threat to Our Personal Privacy

February 18th, 2021 9:54 PM

I love my digital devices, but people keep telling me to worry more about my privacy. "Encrypt your emails!" "Drop Google and use search engines like DuckDuckGo that don't track us!" I probably should. But I don't. I'm lazy, and I like that web companies know me and show me things I'm interested in. I like that they display "restaurants near me."

Andrew Cuomo’s Deadly Lie

February 17th, 2021 3:40 PM

The people who hand out Emmy Awards should ask New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to return the one they gave him. Cuomo received an Emmy for what they called his "masterful" COVID-19 press briefings. The media lauded those performances, extolling his honesty and transparency. It now turns out he was as honest as many other politicians and as transparent as a brick.

Tom Brady Is a Gent

February 11th, 2021 5:44 PM

What did you do Sunday evening? I watched the gaudiest pageant ever performed on television, interspersed with a football game. The football game was serious, dare I say, dignified, adult entertainment. Yet what came with it was typical American excess. Lights flashing, deafening noise, hundreds of people marching, and I believe there were cartoon figures parading around the field. I worried…

When the Hateful Think They Are the Virtuous

February 11th, 2021 3:28 PM

This week, Virginia Heffernan, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, unleashed the most perverse column in recent memory. The title: "What can you do about the Trumpites next door?" Heffernan wasn't lamenting neighbors who had tagged her house with pro-Trump graffiti, or who had participated in the Jan. 6 riots, or who had even held an election watch party and turned the music up too…

Five Myths About Socialism, Part Two

February 11th, 2021 12:24 AM

Last week, I reported on two myths about socialism. My new video covers three more. Myth No. 3: Socialism works if it's "democratic." As the Democratic Socialists of America put it, "Society should be run democratically -- to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few." Sounds nice. If socialists are elected, then we'll have a more just society. But Venezuela's socialists were…

The Spending Addiction

February 10th, 2021 10:24 PM

The problem with free money is that it leads to an addiction much like an addition to drugs. In the case of the $1.9 trillion "relief" bill that has no Republican support, Congress is the supplier, while those on the receiving end become increasingly addicted to government and less self-reliant.

New York Times Fires Reporter For Using Word It Used, Too — the N Word

February 8th, 2021 4:49 PM

The New York Times has fired a prize-winning reporter, Donald McNeil, for asking about the context in which someone used the N word. As journalist Jesse Singal notes, “One of the most important coronavirus reporters on the planet” was forced out of “the Times because he used the N-word in the context of asking about a controversy involving the N-word.”

Power to the People 2.0

February 4th, 2021 11:02 PM

During the rebellious '60s, the slogan "power to the people" became a mantra for the young to protest what they saw as oppression from their elders. Now comes a moment when significant numbers of Americans can exercise real power in ways that will improve the country. Most people will never attain a level of influence comparable to a president, a member of Congress, a Supreme Court justice, a…

Five Myths About Socialism, Part One

February 4th, 2021 7:52 PM

People hate America's big disparities in wealth. It's a reason why, among young people, socialism is as popular as capitalism. The Democratic Socialists of America want a country based on "freedom, equality and solidarity." That sure sounds good. But does socialism bring that? My new video debunks several myths about socialism. One reason for socialism's continued appeal is linguist Noam…

The Inequality of ‘Equity’

February 3rd, 2021 11:17 PM

President Joe Biden took office pledging a return to unity and decency. A new era of good feelings is at hand, we were informed by both his administration and its sycophants in the media. A new world -- a world of "equity" -- is at hand. Equity, you see, is the word of the day. Not equality -- that would be a traditionally American concept.
