My column at Real Clear Politics ran on Friday of last week instead of the usual Monday slot today, so if you missed it, Here it is. I couldn’t wait till this week to challenge Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff for touting the Fake News that a Russian intelligence agency had single-handedly invented the story

I’m no scientist, but I have a logical mind, which puts me in a good position to at least recognize bad science when I see it. The theory of anthropogenic (man-caused) global warming is bad science. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Lots of scientists have poked holes in the “science”

Border overwhelmed? Blame the defenders!

How infuriating! ABC’s chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl blames America for the fact that thousands of illegal immigrants are crossing our border with nowhere to go but a prison cage. “We begin with troubling new images from the border – human beings held by the US government in inhumane conditions,” he said at the

My column at Real Clear Politics usually runs on Monday, but I couldn’t wait that long to challenge Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff for touting the Fake News that a Russian intelligence agency had single-handedly invented the story that Seth Rich had been killed because he knew too much about Hillary Clinton — and had

Here’s how we know AOC’s border horror show was staged by dishonest media

A group of Hispanic pastors toured the same border detention facility that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visited, but unlike her they found no horrific conditions, no women drinking out of toilets, nothing to remind them of a concentration camp — just a normal facility for handle by a border crisis in the most humane way possible. AOC

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

Andrew Sullivan talks common sense about immigration, asylum and Democratic insanity

I’ve written several times (here and here) about the enigma of journalist Andrew Sullivan, who may be the ultimate swing voter. He is capable of brilliant insights about the dangers of the left and yet has this huge blind spot in front of him called Donald Trump. Well, his new column may offer the best

Some random thoughts about the disastrous Dem debates

Is it just me, or was the JV night of the Democratic debacle — er, debate — much more interesting, entertaining and informative than the star-studded spectacle the following night?  Yes, night two had its moments, but the moderators were apparently afraid of the high-octane candidates on stage, which resulted in one of two things

A new political low as Highlights children’s magazine goes after Trump over immigration

You probably read about the knitting interest-group website that banned Trump supporters. That makes about as much sense as a grocery store banning food lovers, right? But at least the target of the scorn was grown-ass people who could be expected to know why they support the president and his policies. Now a new low

Project Veritas plays David to Google’s Goliath and slays the giant!

Wow! Talk about a complete lack of self-awareness! The “mea no culpa” written by Google exec Jen Gennai on Medium yesterday shows a callow shallowness not seen since the days of the proverbial Valley Girl. Either that or an utterly disingenuous denial of guilt the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Eve had to
