Victor Davis Hanson: Trump’s former consiglieri Michael Cohen, along with being charged with tax avoidance and improper business deals, allegedly is guilty also of trying to leverage money and attention by exaggerating his influence with candidate and later President Trump. In other words, Cohen to spec followed the standard creepy daily fare for Washington and […]

Consider please what’s been going on in France the last couple of weeks. Less than a month ago, French President Emmanuel Macron staked his claim as the flag-bearer for globalism.

Eric might, or might not, like this.  A nascent political movement named after our second largest local college, kind of, sort of, the University of Rochester, or the Yellow Jackets.  It been a long time since the French showed much fighting spirit.  It has been a long series of battles since the Battle of Puebla.

It was 77 years ago yesterday… the attack on Pearl Harbor. Been thinking about it since yesterday morning. The amount of time that has passed since those events has cost us, I think, an understanding of them. Certainly, we’ve lost a lot of the survivors of that attack. Only about 20 of them, all in […]

Seventeen days before Christmas and Congress Critter-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(AOC) just delivered a sleigh full of gifts. I hardly know where to start, from Kemberlee Kaye, Legal Insurrection: The First Amendment. How does it work? It’s almost like it was designed to protect the public from the tendency of elected officials to flirt with fascism. Troll […]

I consider it a stone fact that Joe Biden is probably the most qualified to run for president in 2020, as he claims. Of course I consider that a sad commentary on the state of the Democrat party today, but that statement is one of the few things he’s gotten right.

It started with Dwight D. Eisenhower and it ended with George H.W. Bush.  From 20 January 1953 to 20 January 1993, our country was lead by a member of the Greatest Generation and a veteran of World War Two.  We may never see the likes such patriot presidents again. Eight presidents and forty years of […]

Since WDOK in Ohio decided to pull “Baby it’s Cold Outside” from its playlist because someone was offended, I feel that these other holiday songs must also be removed as they are offensive as well. Do so immediately. 1. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: subjecting minors to softcore porn 2. The Christmas Song: Open […]

Former bartender and Congress Critter-elect Democratic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims, with no convincing evidence, to have studied economics.  One wonders just where, from Daily Caller: Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York slammed the electric car company Tesla Monday night for failing to give American taxpayers a return on their “investment.” Ocasio-Cortez made the […]

You’re going to hear an awful lot of lot of laudatory as regards to Mr. Bush this morning. In truth, he probably deserves most of it. (Re-read the first para, and then proceed…) Thing is, I’ve been seeing an awful lot of examples of what I would consider to be false respect in the last […]

George Herbert Walker Bush, the forty-first President, has been reunited with Barbara: HOUSTON (AP) — He was the man who sought a “kinder, and gentler nation,” and the one who sternly invited Americans to read his lips — he would not raise taxes. He was the popular leader of a mighty coalition that dislodged Iraq […]
