Comey and the FISA Warrant Hillary Bought


James Comey uncorked the whopper earlier this year that he still “didn’t know for a fact” Hillary Clinton financed the infamous dossier of Christopher Steele — an epic lie reminiscent of his denial, leaked through James Clapper and other stooges, that the FBI spied on Trump Tower, even as warrants to spy on Trump Tower […]

A Birthday On Hold


Sunday, November 25, 2018 It was my birthday. I’m old. I lay in bed looking at my swimming pool and then started to put on my bathing suit. Mary, our spectacularly good nurse who takes care of my wife on Saturdays and Sundays, came running — yes, running — into my room. “Miz Alex,” she […]

Democrats Are Just Too Darned Smart


At the dawn of the information age, when dumb terminals began appearing on desks and the din of dot matrix printers deafened all and sundry, every enterprise of consequence employed a misanthrope charged with the care and feeding of these machines. Occasionally, this reclusive individual reluctantly submitted to questions about the output of the equipment. […]

Anniversary of a Failed Progressive Experiment


Sacramento During my first trip to Salt Lake City years ago, I wandered into a nondescript little bar and — forgetting about Utah’s arcane drinking laws — tried to order a whisky.

Why Climate Change and Diversity Are So Urgent


It must have been horrifically awful for homosexuals, as they then were known, in the 1950s. If their orientations or preferences were exposed, they were finished. Their jobs were over. Their marriages were over. Their very lives often were over. And yet they felt a need to find others who shared their orientation. How spot […]

Democrats in Trouble


Washington I see that that the presidential prospects of Michael Avenatti have suffered a setback. Actually they have suffered several setbacks, including his announcement Tuesday not to run. Critics of the aspiring Democratic candidate for 2020 were hopeful that his days as a candidate were numbered. His bookings on the cable networks are down, and […]

Thank You, President Bush


May, 1970. I was having lunch with Pennsylvania Congressman George Goodling in the House Dining Room. I was 19 years old, and, with thousands of other college students, I was in Washington to protest the shooting of four Kent State University kids who were shot to death by the Ohio National Guard in the middle […]

Patent Extortionists No Friend of the Little Guy


Patents are one of the most miraculous legal inventions of the modern age: with a stroke of a pen, an idea that can save lives, or move mountains, can become a source of prosperity not just for the world, but for the person who conceived it, as well. That being said, America’s patent protection system […]
