The Establishment Stuck on Stupid


This message is for the establishment Republican, Democrat, and NeverTrump consultants and pundits who have been flooding the airwaves and Internet with the same old tired wrong reasons for the Trump victory and how we must proceed going forward. To quote my old Brigade Commander who the public knows as General Russel Honoré of Hurricane […]

Democrats Know Better But Don’t Care


Another day, another Islamist terror attack. This time an 85-year-old French Catholic priest saying Mass was beheaded on the altar. Another day, another attempt by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the entire Democrat party to stand firm in their conviction that we are not really at war and that the murderers are not really a […]

Betrayal Breeds Strange Bedfellows


If America actually split into two nations along political lines — Red State Nation and Blue State Nation — which country would be more secure, prosperous, and free? That’s a fair question and one blue staters don’t want to answer. It would be an admission that constitutional conservatism works. In 1994, the conservative tidal wave […]

Time We Took the Debates Back


For the longest time conservatives have distrusted the mainstream media, and for good reason. For decades we have seen the journalistic double standard in Washington and elsewhere that favored Democrats and liberals and dinged Republicans and conservatives. Why else would Fox News’ “fair and balanced” motto resonate the way it does? The CNBC debate last […]

Baseball Dusts Itself Off


Three days, 23 hours and 15 minutes to the arrival of pitchers and catchers. Hope renewed once again. Winter is loathsome to me. I am a baseball fan. It has been central to my life from the moment I came into this world because it was central to my father’s life. More than that, I […]

Some intellectually challenged Republicans just haven’t made up their minds and are waiting for the Senate Judiciary hearings to conclude before they announce their positions. Let me help the Republicans (as the Democrats are absolutely hopeless when it comes to […]

The Abramoff Grip and Grin Shots


Much is being made on the potential impact of the media getting their hands on photos of President Bush shaking hands with convicted fraud Jack Abramoff. So far, the White House is refusing to turn over any of the pictures. The Washington Post called me about this and published my unsolicited advice to the White House, […]

Former Chief Justice Al Gore on the NSA


Well, until Al Gore chimed in about the NSA wiretapping story, I was convinced the President had the authority under Article II of the Constitution to conduct warrantless searches and surveillance to protect the USA against foreign threats. In fact, I was under the impression that every President since Jimmy Carter had maintained that despite […]

ABC’s Brian Ross had yet another breathless (and misleading) exclusive last night. Fired NSA analyst Russle Tice (apparently stripped of his security clearance and let go last year over “psychological concerns”) is claiming to be “a” source for the NY Times’ NSA story. Note to the FBI investigators probing the leak: This guy ain’t it. […]

The NSA hoo ha


Thanks (today) to the WSJ editorial page for finally publishing the facts about the President's legal and constitutional authority to conduct warrantless searches: "The allegation of Presidential law-breaking rests solely on the fact that Mr. Bush authorized wiretaps without first getting the approval of the court established under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.
