Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who questioned the validity of Dr. Deborah Birx advising Americans to stay out of grocery stores and pharmacies for two weeks. I’ve experienced higher than usual traffic on my weekend post about Birx, with a number of skeptical queries on search engines leading people to my headline: “Did Dr.

Coronavirus hasn’t changed everything. For instance, the radical left is still trying to silence the voices of conservatives in the media. In March, they claimed an important scalp when they convinced Fox Business to fire Trish Regan for telling the truth about how Democrats are playing politics with the virus crisis. Here’s my look at

Did Dr. Birx really tell people not to shop for food or go to drug stores?

Since Saturday’s Coronavirus Task Force update, the mainstream media has been drumming home the idea that Dr. Deborah Birx has told Americans not to go grocery shopping or visit the pharmacy for the next two weeks. Well, I watched the press conference, too, and I know that if you write Birx’s words down on paper,

I’ve often warned conservative politicians about the foolhardiness of consenting to interviews with the “Enemedia” like CNN and MSNBC. Usually they get their head handed to them, but Sen. Marco Rubio went into the lion’s den Friday, and came out of it intact. In an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, Rubio was able to survive

President Trump decided to give CNN’s Jim Acosta one more chance to be a journalist on Monday, March 30, 2020, but Acosta failed miserably. “Go ahead. Let’s give it a shot,” the president said to Acosta when he called on him at the coronavirus press conference. But as soon as Acosta opened his mouth, it

Just when you thought the mainstream media couldn’t sink any lower, along comes coronavirus to prove you wrong. President Trump is doing everything possible to give people hope and to overcome what he calls the “invisible enemy,” but the MSM is just as great an enemy as the virus itself. In case anyone believed the

Wow, I had no idea Joe Lockhart was a raving lunatic! After all, he worked as communications director for Bill Clinton (you remember? the last moderate Democrat?) and he always seemed like a nice normal guy. Oh how wrong I was! I had the misfortune to see a tweet by Mr. Lockhart today which proved

I keep seeing the coronavirus out of the corner of my eye. It’s always just out of sight or blurry, never quite in focus. Does it have any power of its own? Or just what we have given it? Here’s one of my preliminary essays trying to make sense of the vast changes that a
