Here’s an update on the tariff dispute between President Trump and Mexico, with Trump threatening to raise tariffs on imports from Mexico unless it takes action to stem the flood of illegal entrants crossing into the US from Mexico.  One bit of advice for Mexico’s President: lecturing us that it’s a “fallacy” for the American President to want to put America’s interests first is probably not an effective persuasion tactic.  At least, not with this President.

I know these sorts of confrontations give some people the vapors, especially when they send the Dow on a roller coaster ride…and I’m no fan of tariffs myself, which tend to set off trade wars that harm consumers and businesses on both sides.  But we have allowed the US to be rolled over for too long, and a corrective is needed.  And it appears that only alternatives are terrible liberal plans like the massive immigration reform proposed this week by “Beto” O’Rourke. It involves a lot of amnesty, open borders and spending tons of our money to make Central America so prosperous that people won’t feel like leaving.  Sure, nothing works better than expensive, forced nation-building.

Central American nations already have abundant resources, hard-working people and climates better than many far more prosperous northern US states.  It isn’t our responsibility to remake their nations in our image.  If they want what we have, it’s within their power without their citizens having to flood across our borders illegally. 

We don’t need to provide other nations with a free banquet at our taxpayers’ expense.  All we should feel obligated to do is to loan them the recipe and let them follow it for themselves.  And here it is:




With so many business owners fleeing California, Gov. Gavin Newsom apparently hopes to diversify his state’s tax base beyond Hollywood and high tech by turning it into America’s abortion mill.  With other states passing laws restricting abortion, Newsom (who, coincidentally, is already laying plans for his reelection campaign) is launching the sickest tourism promotion ever by inviting women to come to the Golden State to kill their children in the womb.  Or as he put it so euphemistically, while practically wrapping a Planned Parenthood clinic in American flags:

“California will continue to uphold women’s equality and liberty by protecting their reproductive freedom, educating Californians about their rights to reproductive freedom, welcoming women to California to fully exercise their reproductive rights, and acting as a model for other states that want to ensure full reproductive freedom for women.”

He somehow managed to promote unfettered abortion while saying the word "freedom" more often than Rush Limbaugh.

Of course, this is really all that would happen if Roe v. Wade were overturned: abortion would not be outlawed, the issue would just go back to the states. It’s nice to see that a “progressive” liberal like Newsom can appreciate the concepts of freedom and limited federal power.  However, it would be nice if a “progressive” could ever make a speech that repeatedly touted liberty and freedom without it being solely about the freedom to kill innocent babies, who, in his view, obviously have no right to life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness.

Here's an interesting article on the twin assaults on common sense and women’s sports that the transgender rights movement has launched.  Defenders of letting “former men” compete against women in sports point to the fact that one trans athlete who’s winning women’s track events “doesn’t always win” as proof that trans athletes do not have an unfair physical advantage over natural born women.

One problem: when this particular athlete was a man, he never won.  Running track as a man in previous years, he ranked 200th and 390th.  After switching to running as a woman, she’s now the “women’s national champion” in the 400-meter hurdles. So the example they’re using to prove that trans women don’t have an unfair advantage actually proves the critics’ point. As this writer notes, if there isn’t an unfair physical advantage over natural born women, then why isn’t this athlete now ranked 390th among women runners? 

And in case you haven’t been paying attention, this assault on common sense and women’s sports is what the misleadingly named “Equality Act” just passed by the Democratic House aims to codify into law if the Senate passes it, too. 




A South Korean newspaper reported that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un had his envoy to the US executed after he failed to reach an agreement with President Trump. It’s a shocking story, but before it turns into an international incident, Administration officials are asking people to wait for the results of an investigation to find out if there’s any truth to it. This paper has been wrong before, and rumors that Kim also executed the entire party, including the translator, make it seem even more far-fetched.  Granted, Kim’s hardly a stable genius, but even he should realize that such a barbarous act would destroy any hopes for further negotiations and a deal.  It would be like aiming his entire firing squad at his own foot. 

Here are more details on the story, but until it’s verified, let’s bear in mind that the US isn’t the only place that has “fake news.”




You would think that when an investigator spends over 440 pages describing a crime that never happened, he would have enough room to include unedited transcripts of any evidence.  Like, say, if you’re going to include the text of a voicemail left by one of the President’s attorneys that implies he tried to get Gen. Flynn to tell him any information he had that implicated Trump, don’t leave out the part of the message where he said he was asking “not only for the President but for the country” and that he wasn’t asking for “any confidential information.”

This wasn’t even the only example of misleading editing to arrive that day.  There was also an attempt to make it look as if Attorney General Barr contradicted himself by editing his CBS interview.  Luckily, a sharp-eyed observer spotted it.

This shows why it’s vital to consult original, unedited sources if you want to know what’s going on. Even cutting out one word can make a big difference, such as quoting someone as saying, “I did collude with Russia” by cutting out just one little word: “not.”

The Chicago Police, still seething over prosecutors dropping the fake hate crime case against actor Jussie Smollett without obtaining a guilty plea, struck back by releasing text messages they gathered from Smollett to his alleged “attackers.”  Now we can see why keeping all the case records sealed away from the public was so important to him.

And here’s more to suggest that the fix was in for Smollett even earlier than we knew.



Here’s an answer to the age-old question, “How big a lie does the head of Planned Parenthood have to tell for even the Washington Post to call her out and give her Four Pinocchios?”

    Regarding Planned Parenthood's lie that "thousands" of women died from illagal abortions before Roe v Wade: Dr. Bernard Nathanson, co-founder of the National Abortion Rights League (NARAL), admits in his book "Aborting America" that NARAL invented statistics like that pre-Roe to change public opinion on legalizing abortion. The media never checked the PR claims and printed them as fact. Not too surprisingly, when Nathanson --himself an abortionist who presided over untold abortions--converted to pro life after filming an actual abortion in "The Silent Scream," the media darling was thereafter ignored. Long before Abby Johnson wrote "Unplanned," Nathanson laid out all the lies of PP and its allies. This is a fascinating book that includes how Betty Friedan was convinced by NARAL to adopt abortion as part of the feminist movement.

    How do we meaasure a successful economy? Is it when unemployment rates are down? Or is it when the stock market is high? Does Trump really know what he is doing? Or is he really fooling everyone?

    I am a wee bit older than you and I worked in a California hospital before Roe vs. Wade. There were safe hospital abortions being done up to 12 weeks using various diagnoses. And this had been going on for decades. Usually women would get a common procedure like a D & C and even insurance would cover it. I am seriously upset about abortions past 12 weeks and I remember thinking a few weeks ago that you would say our country was going to hell in a handbasket and sure enough you did. LOL I don't approve of abortions except for health reasons; I am always yelling about birth control. I once had a patient who was 11. I didn't know then what I know now that she was a victim plus a pregnancy could have seriously threaten this child's health. I miss your show.

    Looks like l'il Bobby Mueller is trying to shoulder aside Jimmy Comey as the ex-DOJ talking head de jure. Neither of these two will go away on their own, because they have way too much baggage. Comey has lots of 'splainin' to do about the Hillary "fake Investigation" matter; and Mueller, in addition to his dealings on the Russia Hoax, still could be held accountable for his role in jailing four innocent men (OK, not "innocent" - they were mafioso - but not guilty of the crime they were jailed for) in Boston. He was censured by the US Supreme court, but has never had to pay for his crimes of deliberately concealing exculpatory evidence. Guess both Mueller and Comey figure if they talk loud enough they won't hear the footsteps of the law coming for them.

    Regarding the situation in Mexico...
    The truly ridiculous part is that all the foreigners that cross the southern borders are processed and given "travel passes" when they say their destination is the USA.
    No one is allowed into this country without papers. Crazy.

    I would be interested in knowing whether Roe vs Wade or any other case has ever been heard by the Supreme Court with the basis of determining the rights of the biological father.
    After all....the child in the womb of the female would not exist unless there was both a biological mother AND father.

    Reason I ask: Circa 30 years ago, a then young man I know was in a relationship with a woman. She eventually found herself to be pregnant. In telling the biological father, she said was not interested in marriage, but planned to have an abortion. The young man tried to reason with her, but she was stubborn. He then said that the child was half his, and if she gave birth, he would take the child and raise it....she would not have to worry about it. But, he said....if she tried to have his child aborted....and did not agree to his plan....he would get an attorney and make an issue out of his rights.
    The woman, knowing he was serious, and also that he was capable of doing this....finally agreed to have the child with the caveat that when it was born, it would be put up for adoption. A legal agreement was drawn up. The child was born.
    A little girl, who promptly went to a loving couple who had been awaiting the availability of a child for adoption.

    FAST FORWARD---to approximately six years ago. This married and with a family...received a phone call one day "out of the blue". A young woman claiming he was her biological father wanted to meet him and his family.
    They travelled the over 200 mile distance, met in a restaurant and had a wonderful day. Somehow, the young woman had learned the circumstances that occurred prior to her birth....declared she had no interest in meeting with her biological mother. This father...was astounded much this young woman resembled his other children.
    But....she really wanted to meet him as she was graduating from medical school, and wanted him to be happy about the decision he had made. They are still in close contact to this day. the old saying goes..."It takes two to tango"....and if a biological father would want to raise his child...and it went to court, would HIS rights have any standing?

    Have you ever taken a hard look at commercials? Maybe you should...when you send the message over and over again, pretty soon the masses's not the products that I'm referring to.

    I first noticed it after spending a year out of the country without access to US media. Goebbels would be proud of what the progressives in this country have accomplished.

    Really sick of this abortion issue--the rhetoric abounds with "women's rights"--this is the biggest lie ever foisted on the American people--Women who concieve did it of their own volition(exception forced rape)--women DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO TERMINATE A LIVING HUMAN-period.--If they do(abortion) they are committing murder, plain and simple---where is the justice here?????--some asshole who robs a store and kills a 1 month old child should get the chair, but a woman who does likewise(kills the child) is free????????
