King of Playing the Angles

 

I have never met Paul Manafort, but I am told that we were undergraduates together at Georgetown in the 1960s. Recently one of his classmates related a story about Manafort’s tenure as the president of Georgetown’s Young Republicans. According to my source, the university used to pay a very modest per capita stipend to student […]

Trekkies and Other Anti-Whitaker Treacheries

 

When Matthew Whitaker was sworn in as the Acting Attorney General, the Democrats promptly revved up their smear machine to destroy him. Apparently part of that effort involved combing his Twitter account for expressions of unacceptable, unworthy and subversive opinions and beliefs. And that’s where, by curious circumstance, I come in. Back in August 2017, […]

The Whitaker in Sessions’ Chambers

 

Well, that didn’t take long. Less than 24 hours after the midterm election, President Trump has requested and accepted Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ resignation. By his unnecessary and silly recusal from all things Russian, Sessions had gelded himself and left supervision of the Justice Department’s most important investigative matters to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein […]

Caravan Fairness: A Modest Proposal

 

We owe a debt of gratitude to whoever organized and funded the approaching caravan of Central Americans who are racing north through Mexico to our southern border. The 7,000 migrants on the march are providing a powerful, profound, and sobering visual statement as to what is and has been at stake for us if we […]

What Will the Democrats Do Next Time?

 

By the thinnest of margins, Brett Kavanaugh survived the Democrats’ smear machine to become the newest Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. For the first time since the 1930s, there is now in place a solid majority on the Court that will interpret the Constitution as written and refrain from legislating from the […]

Resisting a Lynch Mob

 

When it was published in 1960, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize for literature and became an instant classic. In 1962, it was made into a movie starring Gregory Peck, a role for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor. The story is based on Lee’s childhood in rural Alabama during […]

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 […]

Impeachment? Dale Bumpers Still Needs to Be Heeded Today

 

In January 1999, I had the privilege of spending an entire day at the Senate impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton. In that brief time, I saw first-hand the grubby political realities that belie the ringing prose and high-sounding legal theories that purport to set the parameters for presidential impeachment. Now, with the incessant and […]

The Utter Futility of Gun Control

 

Defense Distributed (DD) is a small Texas company that has developed and published online digital files that may be used to make firearms either by 3D printing or computer controlled milling machines. It is the brainchild of self- described libertarian anarchist Cody Wilson. In 2013, DD uploaded software files for the 3D printing of the […]

Trump Keeps on Ticking

 

Pearl Harbor. Kristallnacht. Treason. High crimes and misdemeanors. These are some of the hyperventilating left’s overheated and ludicrous characterizations of President Trump’s remarks at his Helsinki press conference with Vladimir Putin. Listening to the Democrats and their wholly owned media subsidiary, you would have thought that Trump had (a) smilingly handed Putin a large red […]
