'Trump has blood on his hands'

Enough already. Has it finally come to this? That President Donald Trump has “blood on his hands”? Yes it has. The slander has spiraled through the left wing and media precincts with all the speed of a coronavirus pandemic. NBC News anchor Chuck Todd stuck to the script when he asked former Vice President and Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden, “Do you... Read more »

Andrew Cuomo for president

If I were a Democrat–which I’m not, but which I used to be before I was expelled for being pro-life and culturally conservative–I would want Andrew Cuomo as my nominee for president of the United States. His televised briefings during the COVID-19 crisis were a textbook case of how government should operate and what qualities a leader... Read more »

Biden's #%$& hurled at a voter is just a "human moment"

That’s according to Sen. Deborah Stabenow (D-Mich.) defending Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for calling a labor union auto plant worker that he is “full of shit.” Here’s the quote, as provided by the Daily Beast: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a pro-gun auto plant worker on Tuesday that he is “full of shit” for saying...

I'm 78 and I'm not running for president

I’m too old. Like Joe Biden. I recognize Joe Biden. I know him. I know what it is to struggle for a word, as Biden did when he couldn’t remember, holy smokes, the name of God when he said, “All men and women created by—you know, you know the thing.” Or when he called Super... Read more »

Update on the Update: Unrepentant Blago's 'golden' commutation. Will or can he run again?

Update: Readers have pointed me in the direction of the Articles of Impeachment (HR1671) that proclaims: Wherefore, this abuse of power by Rod R. Blagojevich warrants his impeachment and trial,  removal from the office of Governor and his disqualification to hold any public office of the state in the future. [Emphasis is mine.] True enough....

Trump's colluding with Bernie, dontcha know

UPDATE: Wow. This might not be parody after all. Read Eric Zorn’s, “South Carolina Republicans’ plan: Help Trump by voting for Sanders in Dem primary. Will it work, or backfire?” Still, Eric doesn’t go into how some Sanders supporters are trying to downplay his socialism. True. President Donald Trump’s fondest wish is to face Sen. Bernie Sanders...

Can your Christian faith be reconciled with your support of Trump?

Millions of Christians apparently have, but here are observations from a conservative person of faith  who is deeply troubled by President Donald Trump’s trashing of Christian values. David French, a senior editor of The Dispatch recently asked the same question in his essay, Will Somebody Please Hate My Enemies for Me? Donald Trump is making it even harder for... Read more »

How I would have voted in the Trump impeachment trial

Would I have voted to remove Trump from the presidency or would I have voted to acquit? Fair question. Unless, of course, I was the New York Times editorial board and then I could vote to both convict and acquit. The case against Trump is meaty. He tried to use the power of the U.S.... Read more »

Say what? Race relations have improved under Trump?

And  more. A new Gallup poll finds: As Trump enters his re-election year, Americans are more positive on eight key issues than they were just before he took office in January 2017. Gallup records double-digit increases in public satisfaction with the nation’s economy, security from terrorism, military strength and the state of race relations. Satisfaction... Read more »

My prediction: both the 49ers and the Chiefs will win the Super Bowl

Or, contrary-wise, both will lose. This makes as much sense as the New York Times “endorsing” both  Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for the Democratic presidential nomination. During my 15 years as a member of the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board, it never occurred to us to endorse two people. That... Read more »
