Hillary Punts on Pipeline

Hillary Punts on Pipeline

The latest addition to the pileup known as Clinton Train Wreck 2016 is her recent statement that she’s not going to express her opinion on the Keystone Pipeline issue until after the election. In other words, elect me president, and as a favor for so doing, I’ll let you in on my secret-treasure view of the matter.

I thought we’d reached the pinnacle of political arrogance with Nancy Pelosi’s infamous and universally ridiculed statement…

CNN Bias

If ever evidence was needed of left-wing media bias, consider this morning’s CNN coverage of the Congressional grilling of the Katchup Consort on the Iranian nuclear deal.

Instead of listening to more of the hearings, CNN is obsessed with the straw man issue of Obama’s trip to Kenya, Trump’s equally insignificant visit to the Mexican border, and the plight of a suicide in jail.

Time to Bid No Trump

Time to Bid No Trump

Donald Trump has unquestionably enlivened and contributed to global politics and economics. He’ll be the first to expand and expound on that premise, so there’s no need for me to.

This past week, two things happened. Trump rose virtually meteorically in the polls rating candidates for the Republican Party nomination for U.S. president in 2016. Shortly thereafter, Trump mouthed off about John McCain in a way that makes Howard Dean’s screamer…

Kerry to the Rescue

What a Difference a Weekend Makes

Seems only yesterday, maybe it was, that Greece was about to call it quits and Iran was about to declare victory, withdraw from the fray, and return with increased vigor to its nuclear workbench.

But today it appears that the Ketchup Consort has cast his secret sauce over the troubled waters of Iranian ambitions and that a bunch of headline-hunting politicians have caused contentment, fiscal abundance, and a bright future for Greece to sprout…

Has Obama Outdone the Pope?

Pope Francis spent the last day of his latest South American tour visiting the poor in Paraguay. Bueno.

In an apparent effort to pump up the legacy, concern for which clearly consumes him during these dwindling and impotent days of his presidency, Barack Obama has decided to do the Pope and Johnny Cash one better by planning a visit to the guests of a high-security penitentiary. As he’s clearly on a singing jag, t’s not clear whether he’s going to regale the inmates with an inimitable…

Cosby and Rape

Let’s Get Real About Rape

Murder and manslaughter have degrees. Does rape? Should it? The Bill Cosby story raises this issue.

My candidates for first degree rape are what happens when conscious women are forced at gun or knife point to suffer the intrusion of someone, probably not horny, but rather hell bent on exercising power over a victim. That’s truly heinous and should send the offender to the slammer where he may suffer more than a glimpse of what he…

Independence Day, 2015

Independence Day, 2015

Without the suggestion of a question, the best thing that ever happened to me was being born a citizen of the United States of America. The country’s Fourth-coming celebration is a favorite holiday, second only, in my view, to Valentine’s Day.

I would like to celebrate this year’s Independence Day by listing publically my fundamental philosophical and, derivatively, political convictions. I believe that the erosion of adherence to these principles over…
