Mark Zuckerberg is Right

M

Leftwing activists are calling on Mark Zuckerberg to assume the role of censor on Facebook. It is a private platform. Facebook has the right to allow or prohibit any content Facebook wants. The left can call on Facebook to do this, but it is a bad idea. Both Facebook and Zuckerberg are right to refuse. The left is starting out with the most notorious cause — white supremacy and Nazis. We...

In Helsinki, The President Sounded Like a Fiddle

I

I want to support President Trump. While I vehemently disagree with him on tariffs and hope he reverses course, his agenda of deregulation is good. His tax cutting policy is good. His judicial picks are good. His walk away from the Paris Accord is good. Moving the Israeli Embassy is good. Getting out of the Iran deal is good. All these things are good. The President has picked good advisors and...

The Media Attacks a Stay-At-Home Mom to Get Revenge on Her Husband

T

For well over the last decade, Fox News has kicked every other news network’s rear end in ratings. While Roger Ailes was always the chief villain in the drama, Bill Shine was always viewed as his right-hand man. In fact, Shine was the guy who managed the talent and made the opinion programming at Fox number one. He started out with Hannity and rose to be co-president of Fox News after Ailes...

It’s As If Liberal Journalists Have Coordinated Their Anti-Kavanaugh Screeds

I

Yesterday, Ezra Klein of Vox, who supported the US Supreme Court invalidating referenda in half the states approved by a majority of voters in each of those states on marriage, declared the Court was becoming anti-democratic. Today, the Editorial Board of the New York Times went with this screed. In short, Senate Democrats need to use the confirmation process to explain to Americans how their...

Next Step in the Kavanaugh Confirmation: Pretending

N

President Trump made a solid pick in his choice of Brett Kavanaugh for the United States Supreme Court. Kavanaugh was not my top choice, and I do not think he is as Clarence Thomas like in his conservatism as some claim, but he will be to the right of Kennedy and another in a long list of sharp legal minds on the Court. In fact, it is rare to see a judge elevated to the Supreme Court who has so...

Amy Coney Barrett Would Be the Most Logical Pick for Trump

A

At 9pm tonight, President Trump will announce his Supreme Court pick. People close to the White House have said for several days that Brett Kavanaugh of the DC Court of Appeals is the leading contender. But I cannot help but note an unexplained jump in the price of Amy Coney Barrett of the Seventh Circuit in those online sites that treat things like this like a stock market. In fact, there is an...

Regarding Jim Jordan

R

I have known Congressman Jim Jordan for the a decade. I have not spent inordinate amounts of time with him, but have spent a good bit of time with him. I think very highly of him. I do not know the Jim Jordan of the early 90’s, but I know the Jim Jordan of now. Jordan is currently tied to a scandal at Ohio State University, where allegations have surfaced about sexual abuse in the athletic...

OMG, People Talked to People!

O

This New York Times story made me laugh. They blame the “Koch Brothers” for killing a transit plan in Nashville. Naturally, the reporter is a “climate change” reporter. But read the story. The whole angle is a popular mayor was selling something and everyone thought it would pass. Then it didn’t. Must be the Koch Brothers. You have to actually dive in to read about...

In (Partial) Defense of the President’s Border Policy

I

I believe it is immoral to separate parents from their children, even as a deterrent to illegal immigration. We would not, as a society, slowly drop a man feet first into sulfuric acid to execute him. There are times that people propose policies for deterrence that exceed the level of cruelty we as a society should accept. Just as I support capital punishment, but think a slow drop into acid...

Progressives Will Save the GOP

P

I have been pretty critical of the Republican Party even though I was, for a time, an elected Republican. I criticized George W. Bush vocally for being what some branded a “big government conservative.” Under Bush, the size and scope of the federal government grew at a reckless rate, not for war, but for domestic public policy. When Bush nominated Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, many more...
