On the anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, I always want to look back and remind myself of what this country has been through, and to strengthen me for what is still to come. Here is a column I wrote in the Daily Inter Lake to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the terror


CNN puts lives at risk to feed its anti-Trump narrative

Unbelievably reckless reporting from CNN has put in danger the lives of a Russian defector and his wife. Either that, or it has put in danger the last shred of credibility that CNN had as a news organization. CNN’s Jim Sciutto on Monday reported that the CIA had in 2017 extracted a high level covert

Fox News allows Leland Vittert to commit journalistic malfeasance in ambush interview with Trump trade adviser

When President Trump called out Fox News weekend hosts Arthel Neville and Leland Vittert in March, I was blissfully ignorant of this malignant duo. Trump asked whether they had been trained at CNN. Probably not! Probably just about any journalism school in America could produce similarly left-wing biased reporters. Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and

Currently on the drawing board, according to an unexpected piece of reporting from the New Yorker, is a plan that would send future asylum

Trump makes history while his opponents make trouble

I stayed up late last night to watch a great president make history in North Korea. I woke up early to watch a pack of Democrat jackals nip at his heels. I eagerly await 2020 to watch the Republican president kick the jackals into oblivion. The president’s spontaneous decision to invite himself to a meeting

Chris Christie has a checkered past as far as supporting President Trump, but his instincts are generally good and he knows politics as well as anyone. I was happy to hear Christie, former governor of New Jersey, advising President Trump on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” to “embrace” the New York Times report that the

Lucian K. Truscott IV is a standard-issue liberal with a history of rebellion against authority. He was one of the cadets at West Point who challenged mandatory attendance at chapel, eventually leading to the court-ordered end of that practice. Truscott is best known as a novelist (“Dress Grey”) but he has also written non-fiction for
