Christine Blasey Ford Won’t Take ‘Yes’ for an Answer


Key GOP Senators who have tried to give Christine Blasey Ford the benefit of the doubt are losing patience. She keeps moving the goalpost concerning what she wants done about her claim that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 36 years ago. In fact, her July letter to Democrat Dianne Feinstein outlining her accusations […]

Dems Winning Votes With Big Lie About Pre-Existing Conditions


Across the U.S., Democratic campaign ads are telling voters a big lie. Dems claim they’re protecting people with pre-existing medical conditions and Republicans will take that protection away. The ads would have you believe Obamacare is the only way to safeguard people with pre-existing conditions. That’s false, and the outcome of the midterm elections could turn on […]

A $21,432,243,515,559 Reckoning


Federal revenues flatline at $3.3 trillion. The amount the federal government took in this year matches what it took in last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. There would be a Groundhog Day quality to the repetition if only the major players learned to finally get it right. The Congressional […]

Rise of 5G Lessens the Case for Net Neutrality


Verizon will begin offering its 5G Home service in select major cities in October, putting more nails in the net neutrality coffin and also potentially lowering the cries for taxpayer-funded municipal broadband. Residents of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento can now sign up for 5G Home, which will offer wireless speeds of 1 gigabit […]

Pro Poker Tip: Play Predictably


As an ex-professional poker player, who crushed the highest stakes, with a specialty in heads-up play, it was with interest that I read The American Spectator’s recent poker article by Mr. Kampis, “Mix Up Your Heads-Up Poker Play.” The article propagates the idea that mixing up your play is inherently beneficial. Indeed, this maxim is […]

Democrats and the Rape of Justice


Where were you in the spring of 1982? Can you verify your whereabouts and produce evidence to establish that you weren’t molesting prep-school girls in suburban Maryland? Christine Blasey Ford insists she’s a victim and, while the main suspect is Brett Kavanaugh, perhaps no man can be entirely sure he won’t be summoned before the Senate […]

Preparing for Monday in the War on Kavanaugh


Apparently I unwittingly lost my chance for a position on the U.S. Supreme Court one summer night in 1961 at the Piedmont Drive-In Theater in Atlanta, Georgia. On that fateful evening, my date and I parked in the very last row of cars where young couples had been known to kiss and engage in what […]

Vape Wars: Regulating the Harmless to Death


Certain requirements must be met for a public health issue to be classified an epidemic. These include a demonstrable negative health impact — and victims. The flu is a yearly epidemic, and opioid addiction is turning rapidly into a serious one. Vaping, however, is not. In early September, the Food and Drug Administration announced that […]

Cory Booker Stunner: 17-Year Olds Too Immature to Be Held Accountable for Actions


New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has a very interesting view of Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged actions. You might even call this a “Spartacus” moment for the Senator, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. As the world knows, Judge Kavanaugh, 17 years old at the time, is being accused of assaulting a 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now […]

When Will Cardinal Wuerl Let Me Return to Mass?


I wrote last week about Cardinal Wuerl’s decree that I be included, Willie Horton-style, in a wanted poster at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. He instructed his security guards to call police “immediately” upon seeing me at the Shrine. In the past, his ass-kissing goons, such as auxiliary bishop Barry […]
