“Florida Wildfire Tied to Man Burning Trash,” local news reported. A deeper dive into the story of the home-eating conflagration in Nassau County, Florida, reveals that books, not garbage, fueled the flames. Do even paid writers not know the difference between tomes and trash anymore? The Pew Research Center reported in their annual survey on […]

Trump’s Terrible Swift Sword

 

Bureaucrats braved a bad week. Donald Trump proposes cuts of 29 percent to the State Department, 21 percent to the Departments of Agriculture and Labor, 18 percent to Health and Human Services, and 31 percent to the Environmental Protection Agency in a partial outline of his budget entitled “America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make […]

Who Will Wiretap the Wiretappers?

 

The president’s critics regard his accusation against his predecessor as an indictment against himself. “How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process?” Trump queried his Twitter followers. “This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” Rep. Adam Schiff called the president’s claims “outlandish.” Trump’s charges may come without […]

Shall We Maltz? Art as a Weapon in Hollywood

 

More than seven decades ago, writer Albert Maltz predicted Moonlight’s “best picture” win at the Oscars. For that matter, he also predicted past victories by Spotlight, 12 Years a Slave, and American Beauty. “If a work, however thin or inept as a piece of literary fabric, expresses ideas that seem to fit the correct political […]

Chicago Honors Terrorist After Dishonoring Trump

 

Chicago aldermen honored FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation) terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera by naming a section of roadway after him.

Donald Trump, a promoter of the historic Mike Tyson-Michael Spinks heavyweight title unification bout in 1988, picked up some tricks from the favorite trade of the Marquess of Queensberry.

The Donald v. The Judges

 

Judges dislike people who judge… them. The fauxtrage over President Trump’s continued criticism of the black-robed, white-wigged set works as Exhibit A illustrating the point. Judge James Robart slapped down a Trump executive order. The president slapped back on social media. Trump labeled Robart a “so-called judge” and called his decision overturning his restriction on […]

GOP Hits Home Run Finally Playing Hardball on Court

 

The recent history of conservatives and the Supreme Court looks a lot like Charlie Brown kicking at the football, the Washington Generals hypnotized by Meadowlark Lemon spinning a basketball, or George McFly wearing a kick-me sign on his back in the halls of Hill Valley High School. So, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s gambit of […]

The Dow’s Donny Downers

 

The Dow eclipsed 20,000 this week. That’s bad news for people who hate good news. “If the question is when markets will recover,” Paul Krugman wrote in the New York Times on election night, “a first-pass answer is never.” A few days before Donald Trump’s election, the Dow stood at under 18,000. Months later, it […]

Hope & Change Comes Eight Years Into the Obama Presidency

 

Barack Obama finally delivers on his message of hope and change on this, the last day of his presidency. Don’t accuse the man of not fulfilling this ubiquitous, and amorphous, campaign pledge. He didn’t stop the rise of the oceans or heal the planet. But he did give America Donald Trump. And in his final […]
