I don’t want to waste too much time on the nonsensical TDS fantasy novel “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff (or as writer Judi McLeod dubbed him, “Wolfman Hack.”) But the media can’t stop talking about it. For instance, George Stephanopoulos kept asking our UN Ambassador Nikki Haley about that book instead of Iran, even after she said she hadn’t read it and had no intention of doing so and called it a “new low” for lying to obtain money and power.
The next big battle over immigration looks to be not illegal immigration but sending back foreign nationals who are in America on the TPS program (“temporary protected status”).

California Representative and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce announced plans to retire this year. That adds up to 19 Republicans and just seven Democrats so far who aren’t running for reelection, which makes the Democrats’ goal of retaking the House and Making America Lame Again that much easier...
This must be a very disheartening week for “progressives,” who assume that when Americans reject their attempts to “transform” society at the ballot box, they can always shop around for an unelected activist judge to force them onto everyone.
“The Case of the Dangerous Dossier” has more head-scratchers than a Sherlock Holmes mystery. We’ve seen a few plot twists just in recent hours; these offer a more detailed picture yet raise more questions than they answer.
Welcome to our first show of 2018. And the first week of 2018 turned out to be rather monumental. After 39 years of autocratic and theocratic rule by radical Muslims, the people of Iran are rising up to demand accountability and freedom.

President Trump has the knack for packing a lot of commentary into just a few words, and his use of nicknames is one preferred tactic. “Crooked Hillary” is right on the money to anyone who’s been paying attention to her exploits over the years; the word “crooked” pretty much says it all. And now, Steve Bannon has the distinct honor of being renamed “Sloppy Steve.”

If you wanted to write a book that, because of the subject matter, was guaranteed to be published and even to be a best-seller if it were salacious enough, but you were too lazy or irresponsible or agenda-driven to check facts and determine the reliability of every story, what would you do to just let yourself off the hook for that?

Do “smart diplomats” ever get tired of saying stupid things? Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice did it twice this week alone. She claimed that if President Trump, who voiced strong support for Iranian pro-democracy protestors, wants to help them, he should “be quiet.”
Tuesday was the first day back after a much-needed holiday break, the first work day of the New Year, and because the media had to take Monday off, Tuesday brought us a double dose of hair-on-fire freak-outs over President Trump.
I haven’t read Michael Wolffe’s new book on the 2016 Trump Presidential campaign (it's not officially out yet), but one look at the long excerpt printed in NEW YORK magazine tells me it’s quite an imaginative work of fiction. A number of people closely associated with the campaign and in the best position to know have already said as much, strongly denying statements they’re quoted as saying.

Over the holidays, I saw the new film, “Darkest Hour,” about Winston Churchill’s early days as British Prime Minister, when he was trying to warn his countrymen of the rising danger from Germany and battling liberal leaders whom he thought were too weak in the face of Hitler’s aggression.

The U.S. Navy considers all photographs taken on board our submarines to be confidential and has a strict policy forbidding sailors from taking pictures, even just as personal memorabilia. The only sailor allowed to take pictures on board the sub is the official ship’s photographer, who takes photographs strictly as ordered.
It’s official: Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history, has announced his intention to retire at the end of his current term. After winning seven electoral contests for the Senate since his first in 1976, he says won’t be standing for re-election this year.
Those who (like me) have believed for a long time that “the fix was in” regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton by the FBI have even more reason today for drawing that conclusion.

As 2017 ended, there were a lot of articles assessing President Trump’s accomplishments, and even some of his most staunch critics grudgingly admitted that things were better off than they’d predicted.

This week, I’m recounting “Simple Christmas” stories shared with me a few years ago by my radio listeners. One thing we all learned from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is that it’s not how fancy your tree is that matters, it’s the love it represents. A radio listener of mine named Vicky from California sent me a beautiful story that illustrates that as well as Charles M. Schulz did.
