About Those Ongoing Investigations

I have studiously avoided saying much about the ongoing Russia probe and the accusations of spying by the FBI on the Trump team. Why? Because it’s all so up in the air when it comes to actually knowing what happened and whether any of it makes any difference. To be sure, there were contacts made by some of Trump’s people with Russians. Trump Jr. is a solid example. He went to a meeting expecting to get dirt on Hillary and… Read more »

Last Night’s Debates–An Overview

I watched both debates last night. What a blessed difference from the CNBC debacle a couple of weeks ago. The moderators at Fox Business Network didn’t use their moment in the limelight to focus on themselves or cause unnecessary turbulence with their questions. Instead, the questions were direct, short, meaningful, and fair. Congratulations, Fox Business, for bringing back professionalism to these debates. The first debate, with the so-called “undercard” candidates, was quite good, primarily because there were only four debaters…. Read more »

Unfair Debate?

The conspiracy theories about the first GOP debate abound, mostly centered on the questions posed by the moderators. I’ve read that Fox was conspiring with Jeb Bush or with the GOP establishment or with the Democrats or with . . . well, you fill in the blank. In my view, Chris Wallace, Megyn Kelly, and Bret Baier did a valuable service for all the Republican candidates on that stage. They made them come up with answers to some hard questions… Read more »

Identifying the Truly Stupid Voters

I think we’re now at six videos of Jonathan Gruber talking about the stupidity of the American voter and how to pull the wool over their eyes . . . and counting. Apparently, Prof. Gruber is not a shy individual; he has been broadcasting his views about pulling a fast one with Obamacare for a number of years. So why are we only now hearing about this, when so many videos are available to view? Might it have something to… Read more »

The Media & the IRS Scandal

I have to comment on this before it becomes too old news. Last week, Rep. Darrell Issa tried to hold another hearing into the IRS scandal. Once again, the primary suspect in this abuse of conservative organizations, Lois Lerner, was supposed to testify. She’s the one, in case your memory needs a jog, who took the Fifth last time after making statements that she was innocent. By doing so, she might have voided her right to take the Fifth, but… Read more »

Obama’s Inconvenient Problems

I know President Obama wants all the problems he and his minions have created just to go away; they’re too inconvenient to his goals. He’s doing his best to act as if they’re inconsequential, but the news doesn’t really get better for him as time passes. Take Obamacare, for instance. This past week, the Congressional Budget Office—always referred to in the news as the nonpartisan CBO—revised its figures of the impact of Obamacare on jobs. It seems it will be… Read more »

Duck Dynasty & Double Standards

Last Thursday’s post on Phil Robertson and the Duck Dynasty controversy received more “likes” than any post I’ve ever written. It’s because this whole episode has touched a nerve, particularly in the evangelical community. Ever since President Obama declared his support for homosexual marriage and the Supreme Court refused to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, our society has begun a mad rush toward Sodom. Now along comes Phil Robertson, who gets to the root of the problem: homosexuality is… Read more »
