The case against Pelosi, Schumer, et al

  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have dragged Congress to a new and historic low by their crassly self-serving and corrupt use of the impeachment process to rid America of Donald Trump. Sure, Trump deserves to go, but at what price? Most obviously, he’ll be gone in a matter of days. Kaput.... Read more »

The case against Trump

President Donald Trump wears the jacket for the mob that assaulted Congress. Sure, he said he wanted his apostles to walk “peacefully” to Congress to raise their voices in opposition to the ratification of Joe Biden’s election. He also said that he would march with them but then retreated to the safety of the White... Read more »

American lives matter

In  a flash, race baiters, professional agitators and even President-elect Joe Bide and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris turned the monstrous attack on Congress  into a self-serving and loathsome political screed based on a whacky assumption that here was just another example of racism. Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors started it off yesterday on CNN... Read more »

Understanding the anger that fueled the Washington protests

Why did thousands and thousands of people go  to Washington yesterday to protest? If you’ve wondered why so many fellow Americans did,  then you should read this. Even if you didn’t wonder, this is a must read. I know a couple of people who went. I don’t presume to speak for them, but I can tell you what... Read more »

The attempted coup by Trump supporters

  Never before have American rioters stormed their own seat of government in what is nothing short of a coup attempt. The last time the Capitol was breached was in 1954 by Puerto Rican terrorists who shoot up the House and killed two. The time before and the only other time was in 1814 during... Read more »

Let's have a rational discussion about vote reform

Let’s put aside the argument that Democrats stole the election and examine the obvious problems with the flawed process. And fix those problems, whether we do it now or later. Some of the problems highlighted by this year’s election: Chain of custody. At no time should the ballots be out of the hands of election... Read more »

When Democrats successfully overturned an election

Curious how Democrats are charging that Republicans are out to cancel an election when Democrats themselves established the modern-day precedent for overturning the results of an election. It came at the Democratic National Convention in 1972 when a “reform” plank of self-appointed delegates managed to dump the entire Illinois delegation that had been elected by voters... Read more »

Stacey Abrams outdoes the Chicago Way

True the Vote, a group that is challenging the legitimacy of some vote counting, filed suit in a federal court to disqualify thousands of allegedly fraudulent votes in the contested George election. It’s a complicated technical, legal issue. Suffice to say that the suit went before a federal judge who dismissed the lawsuit. Fair enough.... Read more »

Hey Trump haters, he can file as many lawsuits as he damn well pleases

Access to the third branch of government–the judiciary–is a basic right in a democracy to fix real or perceived wrongs. That President Trump or his supporters have sued many times to challenge the outcome of the presidential election does not make him a threat to democracy. Nor does it mean that those defending his right to do... Read more »

The COVID-19 vaccine is Donald Trump's moonshot

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are... Read more »
