Countering False Images

My previous post highlighted some of my ongoing concerns with President Trump. In the spirit of balance, let me offer some positives today because even though my concerns will probably never disappear, it’s always important to counter the false images being presented by Democrats and their minions in the media. For instance, take that presumed travel ban on Muslims. I critiqued the administration for a bungled announcement about it that gave opponents what they needed to play the bigot card…. Read more »

Russia, Sessions, & the Media: Oh, My!

Russian influence has been all the rage lately. Democrats want to prove that somehow Russia caused Hillary to lose the election. Good luck with that. She was her own worst enemy. Denial is a terrible thing, leading to blindness. I won’t deny something, though, and that’s the uncomfortable sense that Trump is far too comfortable with Vladimir Putin. For that reason alone, I don’t mind investigations going forward to find out who may have been too connected to Russian influences…. Read more »

An Honest Appraisal of the First Weekend

On Friday, I pledged to be an honest appraiser of the new president and his actions, praising good ones and offering a critique for others not so good. Over his first weekend in office, President Trump gave me the opportunity to do both today. Let’s begin with praise. First, just seeing a photo of the Oval Office without its previous occupant is a relief for many of us. Second, Trump’s action in this photo is the beginning of fulfilling a… Read more »

About October Surprises

Remember all those predictions about “October surprises” in this presidential election campaign? A lot of things are breaking on both sides this October. But none of them are really surprises. The ones receiving less coverage, for obvious reasons since the media is on her side, are those swirling around Hillary Clinton: mocking Christians; lying to the people (having different private and public views on policy); coordinating with the media; giving favors to big donors to the Clinton Foundation. The thing… Read more »

Review: The Light Between Oceans

Not one car chase. Not one shootout. Only a glorious film that deals with conscience, the consequences of violating one’s conscience when swayed by love for another, a willingness to suffer on behalf of the one you love even when misunderstood by that loved one, and the spiritual release that comes from confession and forgiveness. Put that all together and combine it with stunning visual beauty and superb acting, and you have one of the most compelling movies I’ve seen… Read more »

The Most Corrupt Power-Couple in American History

Let’s see. Last week another treasure trove of Hillary e-mails was discovered—15,000, to be exact. Now investigators have uncovered another bundle that were supposedly personal and destroyed, among which 30 are related to Benghazi. Nothing to it, Hillary assures us. She jokes on late-night television that her main embarrassment over the e-mails is that they are so boring. And the audience goes along with the joke. Isn’t the joke perhaps on all Americans? It also appears that the e-mail scandal… Read more »

Trump Camp Complaints

Two major complaints are now emanating from Trump supporters, and I know those complaints well because I’ve had the same ones over the years. The first one is about how the media is biased in favor of Hillary Clinton. Well, we all knew that was going to happen—the Democrat always has the media on his/her side, so that’s nothing new. The second complaint is that the polls are skewed. The pollsters are deliberately getting the electorate into a mindset that… Read more »
