Politics – Down and DirtySocial Spasm

Attorney Alan Dershowitz has proven himself to be a man of principle time and time again. He has argued against impeachment, for instance, even though he opposes President Trump on many of his policies and proposals. For Dershowitz, the law and the Constitution are No. 1. Today, Dershowitz published an essay asking, “Is Rashida Tlaib

Thanks to retired newsman Don Surber for spotting this piece of prestidigitation by the #FakeNewsMongers at CBS. CBS reported, “Fact check: Number of women sexually assaulted on trip to border. “CLAIM: The president claimed one in three women have been sexually assaulted traveling to the border. “FACT CHECK: Between 60 percent and 80 percent of

Truth in unexpected places: Pot takes a hit from The New Yorker

Social Spasm

Imagine my surprise when I saw the headline on The New Yorker article: “Is marijuana as safe as we think it is?” Hell, no, it isn’t, but when did East Coast liberals catch on?

“A note on character in politics” by James Piereson | The New Criterion

Politics – Down and Dirty

I learned a lot from this essay by James Piereson on Machiavelli and contemporary political discourse. It’s part of a cycle of essays on President Trunp and whether or not he is fit for office.

Mitt Romney: ‘Ready for My Close-Up, Mr.

Politics – Down and Dirty

In addition to the delightful headline, there is much to appreciate in the substance of “The Blob is Lying About Trump’s Sudden Syria Withdrawal.” This essay by Mark Perry was published at foreignpolicy.com and pushes back against the prevailing “Washington narrative” that President Trump acted precipitously and dangerously when he announced the withdrawal of U.S.

Just because it’s on Fox doesn’t mean it isn’t fake

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

Sadly, more and more of the news coverage on Fox News is slanted against President Trump and conservatives. Fox Business is usually much better, but even there you should not take everything you hear as gospel truth. Case in point today from the professionally obstreperous senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino, who proudly embarrassed himself by repeatedly
