Democrats' double standard on racism

Don Lemon, by another name, would be vilified by the left, fired by CNN and relegated to the scrap heap of has-been celebrity-ism. But Lemon furthers the left's narrative against the right -- the one that says President Donald Trump is racist. So he's safe. Published October 12, 2018

Christine Blasey Ford's bogus 'bravery' award nomination

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a GOP giant who's finally awakening

Something's happened to Sen. Lindsey Graham. He's gone full court, full steam ahead conservative, fully on the same side as President Donald Trump. And have to say, it's not only about time. It's refreshingly, cheeringly, notably high-fives-all-around time. Published October 11, 2018

Michael Bloomberg, man of all parties, no principle

This is why nobody in their right minds buys into politicians as examples of principled people. Michael Bloomberg, who's changed his political party affiliation three times, is a Democrat once again. Published October 10, 2018

Sen. Rand Paul's right -- 'someone is going to be killed'

Google's disturbing DeepMind: Potatoes, potahtoes, A.I. could kill or could save

A few months ago, Google's DeepMind department discovered that in a gathering game over Who Can Get the Most Apples, vying artificial intelligence systems wouldn't hesitate to go aggressive and shoot to injure, stop or even kill, if need be. That's a bit of problem, given the push to integrate A.I. into nearly all aspects of humanity. Published October 9, 2018

Democrats could use a good party cleansing

Democrats, at one time, when JFK was president, for instance, may have been able to make a sensible case for serving as a party that puts its people first, its country at the forefront, and its compass fixed directly on helping the downtrodden and forgotten of society. But those days are long gone. Published October 6, 2018

Kavanaugh protesters anti-American, tilting toward mental illness

It's one thing to exercise a First Amendment right to assemble and petition the government for redress -- to "peaceably" gather together for a protest, as the exact language of this particular Bill of Right specifies.

A brothel of robotic sex dolls set to open shop in Texas this month hit a snag after local authorities, fueled by a field of concerned petitioners, found a building inspection gig and put a temporary stop to KinkySDollS' plans.
