Filling military quotas with the mentally ill

The Army very quietly announced in August that it will lift a ban on waivers allowing people with a history of mental health issues, as well as alcohol and drug abuse, to join their ranks. Even in normal times this should concern you greatly, let alone when the world appears to be preparing for war. Published November 15, 2017

Mocking prayer after the massacre

We learn a lot about ourselves and others in the midst of a crisis. Hollywood and liberals had no problem revealing themselves for what they are (again) in the aftermath of the horror of the Texas church massacre. Liberals, these worshippers of failed big government, decided to condemn people of faith by mocking those who prayed on a day when 26 Christians were murdered. Published November 8, 2017

Another Hollywood case of 'everyone knows'

The Hollywood/Media volcano is still spewing out its garbage. First, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, then newsman wunderkind Mark Halperin, and now the thespian's thespian Kevin Spacey face a spotlight even they don't like. Three men from industries that control our culture, bullies and lecturers all, allegedly grabbing and groping whatever vulnerable woman, man or child might have the bad luck of catching their eye.

The liberal media's meltdown

Saving the nation from the left's bullies

As we've all been understandably focused on Hollywood's Weinstein dumpster fire, a number of stories have emerged exposing the left's continuing culture war, despite its meltdown in the film industry. Published October 18, 2017

Harvey Weinstein's late accusers

Why gun control won't end mass murder

As the nation continues to reel from the nation's worst mass shooting in modern history, politicians and other opportunists find the massacre too inviting not to exploit. The knee-jerk cravenness of liberals to scrape up their calls for gun-control while demonizing the National Rifle Association (NRA) immediately sucks all the air out of the room, eliminating any discussion or investigation of other foundational forces driving mass violence.

Stirring racial divisiveness instead of sticking to the news

The left works overtime to control everyone's sense of reality. They have lost the hearts and minds of Americans so all they can do now is arrange various public Kabuki dramas insisting that America (and Americans by default) are no good and not worth standing for. Published September 27, 2017

Houston's heroes remind us to reject the left's bullies

America is reeling from the onslaught of Hurricane (now tropical storm) Harvey. In the midst of the suffering from the unparalleled flooding, we have seen remarkable examples of heroism and community coming to the aid of those in peril. Published August 30, 2017

Laying waste to the party of Lincoln and Reagan

Isn't it time the president stage an intervention to save Congress from itself? As leader of the Republican Party, the president has every right, even a duty, to intervene when it becomes clear his own party leadership is not only obstructing the will of the people, but is doing damage to the country. Published August 23, 2017

The deadly impact of identity politics

In the aftermath of the horror of the Charlottesville riot, there's been less condemnation by the media and the left of the neo-Nazi that is charged with murdering Heather Heyer and injuring at least 19 others than there has been of President Trump. Published August 16, 2017

Lots of talk about language this week. Anthony Scaramucci, the ousted pick for White House communications director, was removed, apparently, for a variety of reasons, the most public being a vulgarity-laced conversation with a reporter. Published August 2, 2017

'Conform or else': Democrats bully conservative women, minorities

On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages." Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here's a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: "A Bully's Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don't Conform, We'll Ruin Your Life."

Weaponizing language and communication

Fake news has become known for being a false story, gossip or even lies promulgated by the legacy media. We know what our news media establishment often delivers is nothing more than opinion masquerading as news. That in itself is a huge problem. We're all learning about how to recognize it and how seriously to take it, if at all. Published July 19, 2017

The brilliant wrestling match tweet

There are many discussions about the President Trump "wrestling" CNN tweet, but it's time to get to the heart of the matter: that the tweet was brilliant, anticipating a ridiculously overwrought reaction by the legacy media, and boy, did they deliver. Published July 5, 2017
