A Fast Path Toward Disaster

I feared for the future when Joseph Biden was elected President of the United States. I knew that he was a political hack of limited ability. Nevertheless, I took heart from my belief that he could do only so much harm in four years as our chief executive. I also hoped that he would somehow […]

Come Back, Carlson

I was disturbed that Fox News decided to dump Tucker Carlson. I did not always agree with Carlson, but he often provided a fresh insight on current events, and he sometimes broke a very important story. I had the impression that he was an honest reporter — not in anyone’s pocket. We will miss his […]

The Beginning of Wisdom

I weep for our country. Much of the following is a repeat of what I have written before, but I believe repetition is needed. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.  Psalm 111:10 The veneer of civilization that protects us from savagery is very thin.  Those ties that bond us together as a […]

How? Why?

Yesterday, April 4, 2023, the enemies of Donald Trump trashed the American legal system in their attempt to bring down the former President. The indictment was a ridiculous web of charges that should be thrown out of court by any honest judge. Unfortunately, it appears the prosecutor will attempt to drag this matter into the […]

Justice in Peril

I fear for our country. Even if you think him to be a despicable person, there is no excuse for the indictment of former President Donald Trump on charges evidently based on the assertion that he paid hush-money to a prostitute in 2015 or 2016. Unless much more serious charges are revealed, this is an […]

A Bad Deal

There is an old maxim that says that a man who represents himself in court has a fool for a client.  Sometimes it’s even worse when you get a lawyer, The attorney who represented Jake Angeli, the QAnon Shaman, negotiated a plea-bargain on his behalf.   It was a terrible deal.  Angeli received a sentence of […]

Tucker Carlson Kicks the Hornets’ Nest

I watched the Monday evening Tucker Carlson show with great interest. Tucker and his team of technicians had been given access to the January 6 tapes of the so-called insurrection.  Out of these hours of video footage, Tucker chose a few snippets in order to make the following points: On the day following Carlson’s program […]

A Wise Comment

The following comment was in response to my most recent post. I repost it here, without attribution, because I believe the writer is absolutely correct. Everyone should take notice. “It is difficult to lay the blame on one group, but the journalism profession I think is a good place to start. It has failed its […]

Problems in the DOJ

I have posted almost nothing since the beginning of this year.  After all, what more can I say? The Democrats are in control of the executive branch of government and the Senate.  With few exceptions, I consider them a coterie of misguided incompetents.  Unfortunately, they are in position to do a great deal of harm.
