Media bias and the gun control debate

Media bias has a huge impact on the gun control debate. The entire debate would be dramatically different if at least three points about mass public shootings ever got coverage.

On the road with Edison, Ford and Firestone

With "The Vagabonds," Jeff Guinn has hit the literary road yet again. Only this time with Thomas Alva Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone.

Joe Biden's 'Joe30330.com' nightmare

- The Washington Times

By now, everybody knows of Joe Biden's latest gaffe -- that of botching his own debate closer, the part where he's supposed to plug his presidential run, the part where he told a listening CNN audience that "if you agree with me, go to Joe 30330 and help me in this fight." Text much, guy?

Environmental hypocrisy of Google Camp elites

- The Washington Times

Google Camp is hosting several high-brow celebrity names and Hollywood types at an event in Sicily, Italy, to talk about the travesties of climate change. But the bigger, albeit shush-shush, hush-hush-now, news deals with the travel arrangements for these bigwigs. Apparently, according to Italian media, they arrived on private jets.

The Democrats' civil war is heating up

Republicans are watching Democrats tear themselves to shreds with a feeling of glee. It wasn't that long ago that Republicans were doing the same thing, when the tea party movement rose up and forced divisive primary elections.

Defying the conventional wisdom

It's long been political conventional wisdom that governors tend to make the best presidential candidates — think Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. So far, not this time around, however. Several Democratic governors past and present are vying for their party's nomination for the presidency. Yet they've made nary a splash. In the debate in Detroit earlier this week, former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado and current Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana were nothing but also-rans, outshone by not only Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts but also new age guru Marianne Williamson.

'Racist' canard losing power

Leon Trotsky was among the first to use the word "racism" for political purposes. Were he around today, you can bet he would use the strategy the left is using today: calling out as racist whomever they wish and getting enough people to believe it, thereby ending any debate. It's a strategy well taught in Saul Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals," that bible for the far left.

Produce supposed 'evidence'

I watched the loathsome interview given by the Democrats after the Mueller testimony, and heard Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler say they will be subpoenaing more people in the search for evidence to impeach President Trump.

Saudi think tank closes D.C. offices

The Arabia Foundation was a pro-Saudi think tank in Washington, known for communicating on issues important to the Kingdom to the American audience and their representatives. It abruptly closed this week, leading to speculation as to why.

Smelling rats in Baltimore

Calling someone "racist" has become the default position for liberal politicians and certain members of the media who wish to deflect attention from real problems.

'Why I support the House Democrats'

I am wildly enthusiastic about the Democrats who control the House of Representatives. As a bonus for us on the right, the Democratic House has provided hours of entertainment.
