Joe's Lying Lips Aren't Going to Save Him

January 18th, 2022 4:45 PM

How do you know when a politician is lying? Answer: when his lips are moving. It’s an old joke, but it fits the Biden administration. The president went to Atlanta last week where he made claims that would have sent a lie detector off the chart. With a tableau of mostly Black people behind him, Biden again asserted without credible evidence that Republicans are trying to stop minorities from…


School Daze Thanks to Far-Left Unions

January 11th, 2022 12:21 PM

For the third straight day last week, the Chicago Teachers Union canceled classes, choosing to return to virtual learning and citing dangers from the Omicron variant as their excuse. To many, this is seen as nothing more than a teachers’ strike and power grab executed by a union that historically supports Democrat politicians. Democrats send federal aid to the union, and the union then uses it…

Chuck Schumer’s Filibuster Hypocrisy

January 10th, 2022 11:22 AM

Hypocrisy and lies from politicians are so rampant in Washington that hardly anyone pays them much attention anymore. Perhaps that is why our cynicism about so many things political deepens and distrust of our institutions is pervasive. A co-conspirator in all of this is Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who has set the middle of the month as his target for changing the…

Let’s Out the Men in Maxwell-Epstein Case

January 6th, 2022 8:29 AM

The conviction of Ghislaine Maxwell on five of six charges of recruiting and grooming teenage girls for sexual encounters with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein is not and should not be the end of the story. While Maxwell has been held accountable for her actions, the men who engaged in these encounters with underage girls have not, at least not yet. There is speculation Maxwell…

No Peace or Goodwill on Earth

December 28th, 2021 9:07 AM

Peace on Earth and goodwill to men this time of year seems increasingly absent in diverse places. In America the noble objective seems to have long ago left the U.S. Capitol where too many Members of Congress are as divided and angry at each other as ever. A new study by researchers at Cornell University finds there may be an actual “tipping point” where no issue imaginable can unite…

Building the Wall Back Better

December 22nd, 2021 1:34 PM

During a debate with George H.W. Bush in New Hampshire in 1980, the moderator asked that Ronald Reagan’s microphone be “turned off for the moment.” Reagan was angry and said something that might be applied to the failure of the Biden administration to use materials lying unused in Texas paid for during the Trump administration for the purpose of constructing the border wall. Said Reagan, “I…

Medals for Jumping to Conclusions About Jussie Smollett

December 14th, 2021 4:17 PM

If Love means never having to say you’re sorry (it doesn’t), then being a member of the media means never having to admit you were wrong (it does). I wouldn’t write about the Jussie Smollett case and his conviction for lying about a hoax he perpetrated if it didn’t reflect something seriously wrong in the culture. Smollett was convicted in Chicago last week of faking an attack by a supposed…

Liberal Baltimore Sun Nukes Conservative Columnist Cal Thomas

December 13th, 2021 12:11 PM

One thing is certain, liberal media outlets become even more liberal. Case in point: The Baltimore Sun just dropped syndicated columnist and wildly popular conservative writer Cal Thomas.

The Signs Weren’t Missed, They Were Ignored

December 7th, 2021 3:43 PM

As has been the case with so many other school shootings over several years, last week’s murder spree at Oxford High School in suburban Detroit might have been avoided if actions had been taken in the face of several obvious warning signs. Ethan Crumbley, 15, is charged with murdering four of his fellow students and wounding with intent to kill seven others. He has also been charged with…

Celebrating the Life of Stephen Sondheim

November 30th, 2021 2:16 PM

The death of composer Stephen Sondheim at 91 is more than the end of an era. It is the end of a chain of great Broadway musicals dating back to the 1920s when Jerome Kern’s “Showboat” first dazzled theater audiences. I met him only once. It was at Barbara Cook’s apartment in New York where she had invited a few friends following her performance of Sondheim songs at Carnegie Hall.

Swindled Again By Big Government Waste

November 22nd, 2021 12:06 PM

Remember those “shovel-ready jobs” promised by the Obama-Biden administration in 2011? When many failed to appear after passage of this spending boondoggle, President Obama joked, “Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.” That law, noted Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW), cost $787 billion, of which $48 billion was supposed to go for infrastructure…

Threats of More Lawlessness in New York

November 17th, 2021 12:25 AM

“Lawlessness is lawlessness. Anarchy is anarchy is anarchy. Neither race nor color nor frustration is an excuse for either lawlessness or anarchy.” –Thurgood Marshall. Eric Adams, the incoming mayor of New York City, met last week with Hawk Newsome, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter (BLM) of Greater New York, and about a dozen other members of the organization. According to local Fox5 TV…

Trick Spending Bills Are Voodoo Economics

November 3rd, 2021 1:53 PM

The annual “trick-or-treat” ritual is over. Not so the “tricks” perpetuated by congressional Democrats about their tax-and-spend ritual, and their phony numbers. Consider the latest spending measure cobbled together by the House Democratic leadership, or more accurately their staffs. It is 2,400 pages long, much longer than the longest book I ever read. I doubt most members have read much if…

Kamala Harris's Disregard for the Hatch Act to Keep Virginia Blue

October 27th, 2021 8:07 PM

Vice President Kamala Harris, who appears to be in the witness protection program when it comes to her assigned role of restoring our southern border, has re-surfaced in a video she sent to 300 Black churches in Virginia. In it, she calls on congregants to vote for Democratic candidate for governor, Terry McAuliffe. She even reminds them they can vote on Sundays and urges them to do…
