John Irving and the New Fascism

 

It all sounds so righteous. Soooo tolerant. There is the Oscar-winning novelist John Irving (in 2000, for the screenplay of his novel The Cider House Rules) saying this as the Oscars approach: “In our community, tolerance of intolerance is unacceptable.” And there it is. The Orwellian world view come to Hollywood. What, pray tell, is […]

The Media’s Jihad Against the Trump White House Staff

 

By now the stories are growing. The problem in the Trump White House is: A. Reince Priebus B. Kellyanne Conway C. Stephen Bannon D. Stephen Miller E. Jared Kushner F. Sean Spicer G. Michael Flynn Pick one, any one. Then sit back and recall the stories from the Obama administration that suggested the problem in […]

Pure Bunk: Trump Is Merely the Latest President to Challenge a Judge

 

“John Marshall has made his decision: now let him enforce it!” And with that, President Andrew Jackson coldly rejected the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court and his decision on Worcester v. Georgia, a case revolving around Native Americans. Today President Donald Trump has the political and media world agog because, in response […]

Trump Stands Up for Free Speech

 

It was called the “Free Speech” movement. And the University of California at Berkeley was ground zero. Way back there in the primordial days of the 1960s students at UC Berkeley were discovering their First Amendment rights. It all began in the autumn of 1964, as Reagan biographer Steven F. Hayward recounts in The Age […]

Bravo, Mr. President

 

Wow. Talk about bizarre. Over there at the Daily Beast liberal lapdog Matt Wilstein completely misrepresents the point I was making last night on CNN with Poppy Harlow. To my amazement, so too does Right Scoop’s “SooperMexican.” With all the craziness erupting over President Trump keeping his repeated campaign pledges to the American people — […]

Obama Caught on Tape Cracking Jokes in Front of CIA Memorial Wall

 

President Trump went to the CIA. He made a point of going there the day after his inauguration as one of the first acts of his presidency to assure the agency’s employees — now working for him — that he did indeed have great respect for them. As reported by Politico, the transcript of the Trump […]

Obama: Rush Limbaugh Made Me Fail

 

The headline on Mediaite said it all: Obama: Limbaugh, Fox Helped Create Environment for Republicans Refusing to Work With Me The story began thusly, bold print for emphasis supplied: In tonight’s NBC Dateline special, as President Obama tonight discussed his frustrations with Republicans for not being more willing to work with him over the past […]

The United Church of Christ and the Bullying of a Black College

 

The headline my fellow member of the United Church of Christ saw was, indeed, astounding if not surprising. Wrote this former colleague on the UCC regional board of directors from our area of Pennsylvania: “Have our church leaders gone off the deep end??? How can they continue to claim to be uniters, and inclusive?” Good question. […]

Badge of Honor: I Win Crooks and Liars ‘Worst Pundit Ever’ Award

 

Well, gee. Thanks Crooks and Liars! Over there at one of the worst race-driven, skin-color judging liberal websites in America I have been awarded a “Crookie” for “Worst Pundit Ever.” As always, the Crooks and Liars rewriting of American history — when not utterly ignoring it altogether — is astounding. Here’s a sampling from the […]
