The Double Dime, Wild Cards, Wild Talk

 

A ten-time winner at any tournament is rare; to pull it off at two tournaments in a fortnight is almost certainly — you can look it up — unprecedented. But Rafael Nadal, the 30-year-old tennis genius from Manacor, Spain, pulled it off yesterday when he swept past Dominic Thiem of Lichtenworth, Austria, to take home […]

A Trumped Up May Day

 

Today is the annual high holy day in the Marxist-Leninist liturgical calendar. It is May Day. And the glorious comrades and their wider assortment of brethren on the socialist-progressive-liberal left are celebrating as they usually do, with protest. Whether they are marching for the beleaguered worker or for the beleaguered climate, they are marching nonetheless […]

We’re Losing the Freedom Our Fathers and Sons Fought For

 

Night after night, I stay up late watching documentaries about World War II. I’m obsessed with it. Not surprising since it was the biggest event in the history of the human race. My father was in the Navy during the war, although to this day, I am not sure what he did. My father-in-law served […]

Obamacare and the Gutless Wonders of the GOP

 

The GOP holds majorities in both houses of Congress, the President is a Republican, and only a tiny minority of the voters support Obamacare in its present form. It should be possible, under these propitious circumstances, for the Republicans to honor their pledge to repeal the rapidly imploding “reform” law. Yet the party that ended […]

Admiral Harris: Be Very Afraid of North Korea

 

Despite the fact that North Korea proclaimed that war with the United States is “imminent,” the world probably won’t explode next week. Then again, it might. By all reports, Pacific Command commander Admiral Harry Harris is a cool-headed warrior, not someone given to shouting that the sky is falling. (A Japanese-American, his appointment as PACOM […]

President Trump Hits a Milestone

 

Washington There are two ways to look at President Donald Trump, observed Lee Edwards, distinguished fellow of conservative thought at the Heritage Foundation. One is that Trump is “a feckless idiot” who is “almost dysfunctional.” The other is that “this man actually knows what he’s doing.” Which is the real Trump? At a Heritage symposium […]

The 100-Yard Dash

 

We’re all playing the 100-day game, and it’s kind of silly. What’s Trump done since January 20 last? But that’s like asking who won the first 100 yards in a marathon. The only game that really matters is the 1,285 game. That’s the number of days till the 2020 election. But then the mind does […]

Homeland’s Disappointing Season 6

 

“You lack faith,” the young leader of a terrorist cell says to a fellow Muslim fighter, who appears to be ever so slightly less radical in his beliefs. “A man without faith is dangerous.” Then he shoots the guy in the head as his crew prepares for a major attack in the United States. Welcome […]

American Whiskey Trail Tour, Day 5

 

Don’t get me wrong — Jack Daniel’s is a very impressive company. Its sales growth over the past 40 years is mind-boggling. During the 1970 and 1980s, most American whiskeys saw their sales drop. They laid off workers and cut back on capital upgrades. But not company the Jasper Newton Daniel started 150 years ago. […]

The CREATES Act Is Back

 

This past Thursday, April 27, a major piece of legislation that deserves far more attention made its debut in the Senate. I refer to the “Creating and Restoring Equal Access to Equivalent Samples Act of 2017,” abbreviated as the CREATES Act of 2017. While this bill originally was scheduled to debut back in February, apparently […]
