President Trump and the Virus

Some people hate the President.  Some people love him.  A number of liberal reporters and pundits are among the most virulent haters.  In their eyes, he can do nothing right.  In my opinion, he has done a good job in dealing with the coronavirus crisis.  He is fully involved in fighting the pandemic while continuing […]

Verily, verily; Truly, truly

Verily, verily.  Truly, truly. Oh, how I long for a bit of honest reporting. Those who hate President Trump are often dishonest in their portrayal of the man.  He is described as a misogynistic racist of the worst sort, and his supporters are often pictured as uneducated cretins.  Yes, Trump has many personal faults, including […]

I do not doubt the truth of some of the charges leveled against our President.  Trump wanted the Ukrainian government to investigate the Bidens, and […]

Trump Derangement Syndrome

  The late and much loved Charles Krauthammer coined the phrase “The Bush Derangement Syndrome” to describe what he described as “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the Presidency – nay – the very existence of George W. Bush.  Later he modified this medical term to “The […]
