Hillary Clinton's astonishing record of White House failures, fraud and covecr-ups

Younger voters and rigid ideologues my not remember, or may choose not to remember, the many Hillary Clinton White House failures, fraud and cover-ups when she was the First Lady. There is nothing new here, but I even forgot some of these on the long list of her disgraceful tenure when she had her hand on... Read more »

It's Trump's right not to accept a Hillary Clinton election victory

UPDATE: Trump said he would accept “a clear election result” but was reserving his right to “contest or file a legal challenge” if he loses.  Donald Trump’s refusal in the Oct. 19 debate to commit to “accepting” the outcome if Hillary Clinton is elected president has all kinds of critics speeding off the rails. “It’s horrifying,” Clinton...

The Cubs are looking like the White Sox

While watching (and cheering for) the Chicago Cubs last night in the MLB National League Championship Series , I felt the same frustration that I felt this year watching my White Sox play.

Hillary Clinton's dementia

She must have dementia, otherwise how could her memory failed so much when she was answering (i.e. dodging) Judicial Watch questions concerning her Clinton.com non-state.gov email system. She responded that she “did not recall” 20 times to such questions as did she alter or destroy on State Department related business. How could anyone not remember such... Read more »

A debate about whether the media are biased in favor of Clinton and left-wing causes: Having spent decades working in a newspaper newsroom, I believe there is a left-wing bias in news judgment, about what to report, where to place the story and so forth. Many reporters who exhibit this bias, unfortunately, deny it exists.... Read more »

Hey, hey, it's Columbus Day. Time to bash the old devil. Again

Once a year, as Columbus Day rolls around, we have another great opportunity to mock, belittle and condemn the explorer who discovered America and the people (mostly Italians) who honor him. Over and over, we are reminded how he opened the door to the “European invasion”  that decimated and enslaved the  innocent and peace-loving First Peoples... Read more »
