Conservatives Must Rally Behind Scott Pruitt for EPA

 

Environmental groups have declared war against Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Don’t be surprised if Mr. Pruitt’s nomination hearing this week degenerates into a three-ring circus of obnoxious and disruptive Big Green antics, the new M.O. of the left these days. Pruitt’s nomination and the case brought […]

American Craft Beer-Makers Set Up In Mexico

 

When you think of Mexican beer, light lagers like Corona, Pacifico, and Negro Modelo probably come to mind. But American-style craft beer also has been gaining market-share for years. With 60 million potential customers and $20 billion in annual revenue, the Mexican beer market is an appealing target. Some U.S.-made stouts, ales, and other hearty […]

Trump, Lincoln, and the Man Who Held the President-Elect’s Hat

 

I don’t know if Donald Trump is the most thin-skinned candidate we’ve elected president. When it came to criticism, John Adams had a zero-tolerance policy. Harry Truman was known to come after his critics with both barrels blazing. Personally, I wish President-elect Trump possessed the quality Abraham Lincoln had in abundance when confronted with harsh […]

Population Bomb’s Paul Ehrlich Invited to the Vatican

 

Pope Francis admits that he has “a great allergy to economics,” but that hasn’t stopped him or his officials from speaking about it, almost always critically. Bad economics due to ignorance may be forgiven, however. This contagious, now common Vatican allergy seems to be mutating into something much worse. With the news that Paul Ehrlich, […]

We Inaugurate in Scary Times

 

There is nothing Donald Trump can say on Friday that will unify this great nation, so why try? He will say black, they will hear white; he will say jobs, they will hear racists; he can say the world is round, they will say it’s flat now. He knows this more than any politician of […]

Obama’s Shake-and-Break Chicken

 

It did not take a hack by the Russians or a leak by the Wikis to unearth what President Obama thinks of Benjamin Netanyahu. A helpful staffer of his shared with an Atlantic feature writer some years back that O. thinks N. is chicken**** because he does not take bold strides for peace. My own […]

Stephen Miller Gets the Los Angeles Times Treatment

 

Whenever the Los Angeles Times wants to defame a conservative but can’t find direct evidence to do so, it falls back on the “some critics say” formulation of media bias. Sure enough that craven device appears in its story on Trump adviser Stephen Miller’s high school days in Santa Monica: “Some [students] called him racist.” […]

Google is Making Nice with the Trump Administration

 

As President-elect Trump prepares to take office, tech behemoth Google has changed course, now trying to align itself with the incoming Republican administration after backing Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. Watchdog.org reported extensively last year on Google’s cozy relationship with the Obama administration, from a lobbyist’s frequent visits to the White House to […]

The Very Earnest Josh

 

In his long and self-regarding farewell address in the White House press room Tuesday, Presidential chief flak Josh Earnest described his boss as a “visionary.” There’s some reason to believe he is. Well struck in years as I am, I’ve seen a few visionaries in my day. Most of them had either eaten too little […]

The Assassination of Donald Trump

 

The Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton. So the old saw goes, referring to the bravery and discipline of the aristocratic officers the British Army, learned while playing rugby against Harrow. The Battle of Watergate was won in the network and newspaper editorial offices. There, “an effete corps of impudent […]
