First fix freedom quashing

Recent reports of the Department of Justice addressing Google's competitive posture in the online advertising market and the abuses of Obama administration officials in connection with the 2016 election, culminating in the unwarranted prosecution of Gen. Flynn, give me -- and hopefully all readers -- reason for concern. Yes, as a legal matter, these topics should be addressed. But now is not the time.

'Transformation' at all costs

Why is there so much hatred for President Trump, hatred that started before he was even inaugurated? Was it because he beat Hillary Clinton or because of his many promises -- to build a border wall, bring back jobs from China, cancel the Iran nuclear pact, "drain the swamp" and stop American from becoming a socialist nation? Wasn't it President Obama who, five days before his own inauguration, said that we were five days from 'fundamentally transforming' America? How many knew what that meant? Was Mr. Trump perceived as a threat to this transformation?

Do not bailout states for years of fiscal mismanagement

At a time when huge spending bills marked "coronavirus relief" are easily passing Congress with little scrutiny, poorly run states are asking unscrupulous members of Congress to slip in taxpayer bailouts to rescue them from years of their own fiscal mismanagement.

A Most Wicked Conspiracy  by Paul Starobin (book cover)

BOOK REVIEW: 'A Most Wicked Conspiracy'

There's something about gold. Since earliest times it has obsessed mankind like no other element. The ancient Greek legend of the "Golden Fleece" is both myth and fact. The factual side is based on the real practice of prehistoric prospectors in Colchis, part of what would become the modern-day Republic of Georgia.

Most insurance policies do not cover COVID-19

More than 30 million Americans, nearly a fifth of the U.S. labor force, filed for unemployment benefits since mid-March in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a shocking and scary figure, and the property casualty insurance industry understands the urgency of helping businesses and individuals in Washington, D.C., and across the country recover from this crisis.

Churches, quit waiting for government permission

- The Washington Times

Why are churches waiting for government permission? Show some gumption. If the concern is the coronavirus -- well, perhaps that's a failure of faith. For that, read Numbers, about Moses and the snake. But if the concern is the government, to include police -- well, perhaps that's a failure to put God first. That's a failure of fear.

The fanciful Flynn case: Persistent prosecution of Obama-era prey has lost its appeal

Fantasy has its place, but it's not the courtroom. With more than a full share of unlikely twists, the case against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI has lost a line of sight with reality. When the legal process carries prosecution of a citizen beyond the bounds of common sense, Americans sense instinctively that the system is out of whack. For the law to be respected, the law must be just.

Decorum vs. economic health

Should President Trump's deportment be the overriding political issue of the coming election? Wouldn't a comparison of what his opponent has done and plans to do for American citizens make for more valid and beneficial criteria?

Obama should testify about Flynn

Is there any serious reason why former President Obama should not be subpoenaed to testify before the Senate committees investing those 39 "unmaskings" of retired Lt. Gen. Flynn's name in classified intelligence documents?
