Los Angeles Times’s Wrongheaded Recall Postmortem
California Gov. Gavin Newsom survived his 2021 recall election by 24 points, the same margin by which he won the election in 2018. However, to keep his job he spent over $9 per voter versus $6 per voter to get his job.

The Race-Obsessed L.A. City Council
In a leaked tape, three members of the all-Democrat (plus one independent) Los Angeles City Council, along with a labor leader -- all Latino -- used racist, homophobic, anti-white, anti-Asian, and even anti-Mexican slurs as they plotted to redistrict the city council to increase “Latino power.” LA is approximately 50% Latino, but Latinos control “just” 30% of the 15 council seats. For the…

Climate Change Forecasts Through the Years
“‘The trouble with almost all environmental problems,’ says Paul R. Ehrlich, the population biologist, ‘is that by the time we have enough evidence to convince people, you’re dead. ...

Mar-a-Lago ‘Raid’: Two-Tiered Justice?
Attorney General Merrick Garland justified the unprecedented FBI raid of the residence of a former president by saying: “The department does not take such a decision lightly. Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search, and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken.” With the approval of former President Donald Trump and after a…
Barack Obama: Still a Racial Incendiary
Former President Barack Obama recently gave a speech in which he attacked the critics of “identity politics.” At the June Copenhagen Democracy Summit Obama said: “I have little sympathy for reactionaries who cynically condemn identity politics or cancel culture when really all they're doing is trying to preserve existing privilege or excuse entrenched injustice, or bigotry.

After angry public reaction to the leaked Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito draft opinion on reversing Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas said: “We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don't like.

The Conservative Surge in Twitter Followers – The Elon Musk Effect?
In January, I wrote about a USA Today article centered around a New York University study that supposedly disproved the claim that social media platforms, like Twitter, discriminate against conservatives. USA Today said, “Despite repeated charges of anti-conservative bias from former President Donald Trump and other GOP critics, Facebook, Twitter and Google's YouTube are not…
Stand with Elon Musk Against the Woke Mob
The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, recently purchased a 9% stake in Twitter, the social media platform that permanently banned former President Donald Trump and that conservatives accuse of suppressing their content.
