"Lyin Comey"

April 14, 2018

The Republican Party launched a website ( to refute any allegations against President Trump in James Comey’s new book.
Fired FBI Director James Comey suddenly has plenty to say, in a newly-released memoir and an upcoming ABC Sunday night prime-time infomercial--- I mean “news show”--- about the book.

Roasting Mark Zuckerberg

April 13, 2018

If you don't follow my Twitter feed (and if not, how have you survived this long? I warn you, though, if you don’t have a sense of humor, steer clear), check this link for my tweet on the Senate grilling of Mark Zuckerberg...

So far this year, London has averaged more than three killings a week, surpassing New York City’s murder rate. The New York Times reports that just in the past couple of weeks, two London teenagers were killed on the same day when one was shot in the face and another caught in drive-by crossfire, despite strict British gun control laws that have disarmed law-abiding citizens. On one recent Thursday, five teenagers, including a boy of 13, were stabbed within 90 minutes of each other (which prompted far-left Major Sadiq Kahn to demonstrate Einstein’s definition of insanity by calling for strict, no-tolerance knife control laws, just like the gun control laws.) Meanwhile, another man was beaten to death in a brawl outside a betting shop, which will no doubt inspire Khan to call for strict knuckle control laws and ban people from making a fist.

So with all that on their plates, what did the Ealing Council of West London think required action? They voted unanimously to ban praying outside abortion clinics. They don’t call it that, of course; they call it a “buffer zone” barring protests outside abortion clinics. They say it doesn’t ban prayer in general, only any prayer that “amounts to an act of approval/disapproval of issues relating to abortion services.” So you can pray; just don’t mention abortion or God help you.

Remember when what you prayed about used to be between you and God? Now, it’s between you, God and the Ealing Council.

Pro-choice groups celebrated the ruling, vowing that it’s “only the beginning.” Judging from the way the UK government has been going lately, I don’t doubt that. What’s next, telling people that they’re not allowed to pray to save the unborn in their own homes? How about banning people from praying that God protect them from all the well-armed criminals with His terrible swift sword, since self-defense with a sword surely is prohibited under the new knife ban?

Or here’s a better idea: how about if London’s mayor and other city officials all get together and pray to God for some common sense? I’m sure many Londoners who care about life – both the lives of the unborn and their own lives – would be more than willing to join in that prayer, even if it does amount to asking for a miracle.




Today's "must-read" op-ed

Holocaust Remembrance Day

April 12, 2018

April 11 was Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel. But since holidays in the Jewish calendar begin at sunset, the traditional moment of silence was observed at 10 a.m. Thursday.
On Wednesday, a day of significant breaking news about what looks to be blatant overreach on the part of Mueller’s team, I appeared on Shannon Bream’s late-night show on FOX News –- having knocked back a couple of Red Bulls first –- to talk about some of it.

Paul Ryan steps down

April 11, 2018

Okay, now it’s safe to believe it: House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he will not run for reelection this November and is retiring from Congress.
This morning, President Trump unleashed another Twitter barrage over the FBI (acting on a tip from Robert Mueller) raiding three locations of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and seizing records that reportedly include confidential communications covered by attorney-client privilege.
Saturday night, there was a four-alarm fire in a residential apartment on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City. Tragically, one person was burned to death and six firefighters were injured putting it out.
Whenever I see a quote in the news from London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan, it’s usually one of two things: he’s either promoting leftist policies that require major denials of reality, or else he’s blasting the efforts of other leaders to try to find solutions for the horrible consequences wrought by the type of policies he espouses.

News roundup for April 10

April 10, 2018

Monday, the Dow gained about 450 points after Chinese President Xi Jinping announced his willingness to discuss opening up the country's economy to foreign investors, reducing import tariffs on cars and other products, and enforcing intellectual property rights, which eased fears of a trade war.

Unemployment dropping

April 10, 2018

With unemployment at 4.1% and dropping, Americans might soon see something we haven’t had in a long time: unemployment at 3% or less.
When the GOP tax cut bill was first proposed, Democrats attacked it the way they attack virtually all Republican proposals: by claiming that letting Americans keep a little more of their own money instead of it giving it to Washington would make millions of people “DIE!”
You might have noticed yesterday that Facebook placed a disclaimer on a post that I wrote, claiming it was under factual dispute, because it linked to a story in the Washington Examiner about the claim that Amazon costs the Post Office $1.46 in lost revenue for each package delivered.
Imagine a world in which digital technology was so sophisticated that you couldn’t ever be sure if anything you saw or heard was real. There are already plenty of fakes online, but I’m not just talking about digitally altered photographs or the “creative editing” done to audio and video recordings used in news reports and documentaries to remove context or change the intended meaning of what was said
At a women’s conference in Boston, Michelle Obama took a swipe at President Trump by saying that when her husband was in office, it “was like having the ‘good parent’ at home” who makes you eat your vegetables and go to bed on time.
Proving the old saw that “A fool and his money are soon parted,” there’s a GoFundMe account for the legal defense of fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

We keep hearing that law-abiding gun owners who’ve never harmed anyone “have blood on their hands” because of the big rise in mass shootings, and they need to stop bitterly clinging to their guns and let liberals repeal the Second Amendment because our kids are too terrified to go to school, where they might be killed at any minute.

Since everyone is discussing “privilege” on college campuses, one of the more galling examples of privilege that isn’t likely to be criticized by the university elite are the privileges enjoyed by illegal immigrants in California.
Why, I was just thinking the other day how long it had been since we’d seen the cheery face of former DNC chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz or heard anything about that nice family of Pakistani “IT professionals” who kept Democrats’ laptops in tip-top shape for over a decade.

The acquittal of Noor Salaman in Orlando, Florida, sparked such widespread public outrage that one anonymous juror felt compelled to try to explain it to the Orlando Sentinel.

The "Roseanne" reboot

April 3, 2018

The reboot of “Roseanne” returns tonight, and I’m sure many liberals will be watching the ratings closely, praying (if they believe in such things) that viewership falls so that they can write off the monumental debut ratings to nostalgia rather than “giving the people what they want” – the first hour of network TV in over a year that didn’t relentlessly insult Trump voters.
The same week Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced his decision not to appoint a special counsel to investigate misconduct at the FBI and DOJ, choosing instead to appoint a U.S. attorney to look into it, famed civil liberties attorney Alan Dershowitz was making it clear in interviews that the “criminalization of political differences” is wrong for democracy, no matter which side of the aisle is doing it.

Go away Hillary

April 2, 2018

First, she gave headaches to Democrats up for reelection by insulting people who didn’t vote for her as either bigots and sexists, or weak-willed women voting the way their husbands told them to.

Infuriating spending

April 2, 2018

If you are fuming about the $21 trillion national debt that the government is saddling our grandchildren with, at least take heart that all that spending is both wise and necessary. We know from the great relief expressed by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that the “days of austerity” are over that whatever spending Washington has been doing over the past few years has been absolutely essential.

Like, for instance, spending $142 billion since 2009 on improper Medicare payments. Or $55 billion to maintain outdated computer technology instead of simply replacing it with better, cheaper, newer computers. Or $1.3 million for a social media campaign urging women not to spend too much time in tanning beds, plus $500,000 for a text message campaign telling people not to chew tobacco (the same message that’s on the chewing tobacco package.) Or $48 million to build the Afghan Ministry of Defense a new headquarters building, a project that ran five years late and $106 million over budget. Or a $412,000 grant for a scientific paper on whether glaciers should be studied from a feminist point of view. Or $3.4 million to study aggression and anxiety in fighting hamsters. Or $5 million for a Brown University study that determined that frat and sorority members drink more than other students. Or $3 million for a study to see if hearing the “Jaws” theme music gives people negative feelings about sharks.

I could go on all day, but I can’t decide whether to laugh or cry. For more of the most ridiculous and infuriating wastes of your tax money, click the link.

Collusion at the RNC?

March 30, 2018

With Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals for allegedly trying to interfere with the 2016 election and Russia accused of poisoning an ex-spy and his daughter in London, President Trump expelled 60 Russian diplomats, and Russia retaliated by expelling 60 Americans.
I’d like to take a break from the news to wish you and your family a happy and blessed Good Friday, Passover and Easter. In fact, I’d love to take a break from the news to do that, but the “news” just keeps intruding on religious faith.

Not a Children's Crusade

March 30, 2018

There’s a great debate going on in America now between the anti-gun groups who organized the recent “March For Our Lives” rally and Second Amendment defenders.

VA Secretary fired

March 30, 2018

Another Trump Administration official has heard his famous catchphrase: “You’re fired!” Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin was the last major holdover from the Obama Administration, kept on and promoted by Trump because of his outspoken criticism of the shocking VA scandals that had led to veterans dying on waiting lists for care while the officials responsible covered their rears and kept their jobs.

Who is John Huber?

March 30, 2018

U.S. Attorney John Huber of Utah is the latest to be brought in to “investigate the investigators” at the FBI and Justice Department, in lieu of what many had concluded was the only way to get to the bottom of misconduct there: a special counsel.

The success of the return of “Roseanne” has reportedly stunned Hollywood and prompted TV network executives to do some “soul-searching” (or as some wags put it, to start searching for a soul.)

The Trump Administration’s decision to include a question about being a US citizen in the 2020 Census is being denounced by liberals, especially those from blue states with large numbers of illegal immigrants.

It’s amazing how much overlap there is in several stories going on right now. For example, while special counsel Robert Mueller’s team continues to investigate alleged but so-far-unsupported ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and “Russia Russia Russia,” Congress is examining alleged and very-much-supported ties between the Clintons and Russia as seen in the unfortunate (for us) Uranium One deal.

One clue that the news media are biased is when you have a major event that gets wall-to-wall live coverage, yet only non-mainstream sources point out the obvious truth about it.

Facebook apologizes

March 26, 2018

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took out full page ads in major Sunday newspapers (I’ll let the irony of that sink in for a while…Okay, ready to continue?) to apologize over the recent scandal involving unauthorized data gathering.
I was Lt. Gov of AR when the Governor was forced to resign because of felony convictions and that elevated me to the office of Governor. We fought the corruption that had infected the state and saw about 17 legislators and other high officials indicted, tried, and convicted.
Hillary Clinton’s recent remarks in India, in which she blamed her Presidential loss in 2016 on Trump voters being racist and sexist, and on women obeying their husbands and voting against her, rightly generated so much angry backlash that Democrats up for reelection in red states are trying to build a “big, beautiful wall”...between them and Hillary.
At the end of last week, word was that with the exit of John Dowd, President Trump’s lead attorney in the special counsel investigation, Trump was bringing on the husband-and-wife legal team of Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing.
Early Sunday evening, I thought I heard a wet plopping sound coming from my TV. Turns out it was just “60 Minutes’” reputation for journalistic integrity taking a nosedive into a giant pit of mud.

As more and more Republicans are concluding that there’s no alternative to a second special counsel to investigate bias and abuses of power by the FBI and Justice Department, more attention is being paid to the role played by Deputy Attorney Gen. Rod Rosenstein, and it’s about time, because he's the one who gave us Robert Mueller.

This story is so clueless, it could only come from the intellectuals at NPR. It’s a shocking report that illegal immigration activists who speak out at public rallies about being in the US illegally are being “retaliated” against by ICE and deported.
I’ve been watching in amazement all the fuss and fury over the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, simply because career investigators and ethics officials in his own agency recommended it due to alleged offenses that other people have faced indictment over.

The Facebook data story

You’d think there would be enough in the news these days that really is shocking without seeing the stock market roiled by a giant wave of pretend shock over the “news” that details about users of social media platforms such as Facebook are mined and sold to companies that hope to persuade said users to do, buy or like certain things (for those who truly did just arrive here from the planet Antares, that’s known as “advertising.”)

Hillary's apology

Hillary Clinton’s claim that women who didn’t vote for her were told not to by their husbands elicited plenty of heated reactions online, including some from powerful women who didn’t need a man to tell them to be royally ticked off.

Hope for Hollywood?

March 20, 2018

Maybe there’s hope for the movie industry after all: the new faith-based film, “I Can Only Imagine,” opened in third place last weekend, trailing only the giant blockbusters “Black Panther” and “Tomb Raider” that were on twice as many screens.
