HAD ENOUGH? Fed Up Being Tyrannized by Politically Correct Ignorance and Stupidity

Doug Adler claims he recently suffered a heart attack — and insists ESPN’s to blame. The former tennis pro-cum-Entertainment Sports Programming Network commentator was calling a match between Venus Williams and Stefanie Voegele during January’s Australian Open when he ventured the following: “[Voegele] misses a first serve and Venus is all over her. You’ll see […]

FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS: Barack Obama’s Cartoonish Presidency

Well, less than three weeks out and Barack Obama had already chucked the George-W-Bush approach to ex-presidenting (i.e., remain silent and invisible). January 3O he released through his spokesman an opinion on newly elected Donald Trump’s temporary immigration restrictions: “[T]he President fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or […]

MARY TYLER MOORE vs. ‘Women’s-March-on-Washington’ Feminists: Which Would Most People Prefer?

For those like myself who grew up in front of 1970’s television, news of Emmy-award-winning actress/comedienne/producer/Juvenile Diabetes advocate Mary Tyler Moore‘s passing provided an especially poignant moment. My familiarity with and affection for the TV legend was more via the Mary Tyler Moore Show (CBS/1970-77) than as Dick Van Dykes co-star in his early/mid 1960’s […]

HYPOCRITE: ‘Devout’ Tim Kaine, Disgrace As A CATHOLIC … AND As A Man

Smug sanctimony is not a becoming look. When it’s dripping with the blood of slaughtered, unborn children? Even less flattering. I’m speaking, of course, of Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine. In last Tuesday night’s VP debate, the Virginia Senator went on and on about what a doozy of a Roman Catholic he is. He […]

HEY HILLARY: We FIXED The ‘Deplorable List’ … Yours Was BROKEN

The good folk over at Merriam-Webster define “deplorable” as: very bad in a way that causes shock, fear, or disgust: deserving to be deplored; deserving censure or contempt: wretched. It’s a perfectly serviceable word and can really get the job done — when it’s applied accurately. Unfortunately, and notoriously, Hillary Clinton misapplied it a few […]

Ignore the Critics! Go See the Ben Hur Remake

When I first saw the trailer for this year’s Ben Hur, I was intrigued; also mildly skeptical: Why remake one of the greatest films ever released? Or mess with the formula that gave us a 1959, Academy-Award-heavy epic that holds up well even under modern scrutiny? As the venerable maxim puts it: if it ain’t […]

Can’t Our Campaigning Do Better than ‘Naked Trump’ and ‘Toilet Paper Hillary’?

A word of advice: if you’re about to eat a meal, avoid glancing at the stylized, clay-and-silicone renderings of a corpulent, scowling, completely naked Donald Trump which, lately, have been turning up on the streets of some of America’s major cities. Hmmm, check that — even if mealtime is hours away, keep that image from befouling your eyeballs. […]

Our Turn to Say ‘BYE-BYE’: John McLaughlin’s Legacy Remembered

American television personality and political opinion-maker John McLaughlin passed away suddenly last Tuesday; of prostate cancer, at his home near Washington, DC., aged eighty-nine. The Rhode Island native was best known to the general public for the weekly, half-hour, public affairs program which he created, produced and has hosted since January 1982; and which carried […]

Olympic Superstar Spikes

What does it say about twenty-first-century society that a celebrity woman enunciating the obvious — speaking favorably about having babies, raising them responsibly and loving them — should stiffen the hackles of others? That not hating the reproduction and preservation of the species should elicit sniping from some who are biologically equipped to do the same […]

What Barack DUBBED Hillary Would Make George Washington SPEW Vomit!

Lucid people get it: the towering edifice of modern, secular progressivism is constructed with the brick-and-mortar of reality-denial; stubborn, unflinching self-delusion. Unborn babies are not human beings? Marriage doesn’t necessarily require a man and woman? Providing government cash to peeps who refuse to get a job — courtesy of hard-working taxpayers — won’t increase unemployment? […]

Hillary SKATES On Getting Charged for Emails — And O.J. Simpson is ‘Innocent’, Too

Quite a while back, I was speaking with a successful business executive who told me a story I’ve never forgotten: One of his best guys was an African-American fellow; smart, successful, a big producer for his company; a genuinely sharp fellow. At some point, the two of them got to discussing the O.J. Simpson trial […]

Is Bill O’Reilly FAILING to Properly Defend the Second Amendment?

Bill O’Reilly takes a lot of heat from my side of the ideological skirmish — he’s not a true-blue conservative, takes lightly constitutional limits on government, is a RINO, etc. My experience? The Fox News host usually hews to the “conservative” or “traditionalist” take on things — at least more often than not. Broadly speaking, […]

HEY, ANDERSON COOPER: Yes, We Can Oppose Gay Marriage and STILL Oppose the Slaughter of Gays

I confess to being a tad surprised — even a wee bit disappointed — finding out how CNN’s Anderson Cooper ambushed Florida attorney general Pam Bondi in the aftermath of Orlando’s “gay nightclub” slaughter. Noting her previous defense of her state’s constitutional amendment opposing same-sex marriage, he questioned — doggedly, again and again — her […]

In the Era of Hillary, Democrats, and Trump, Even LANGUAGE Is Not Safe

Reportedly, applications are still being accepted for this campaign season’s vacant vice-presidential slots. On both the Republican and Democratic sides of the ledger it’s wide open. Curiously, Humpty Dumpty might fit the bill as either Donald Trump’s or Hillary Clinton’s running mate. Lewis Caroll’s anthropomorphic, pontificating egg, after all, memorably announced, “When I use a […]

How Morley Safer’s Passing Paints a Cautionary Picture for ALL of Us

Veteran TV news fixture Morley Shafer passed away May 19 at his Manhattan residence. In one of those truth-stranger-than-fiction twists, and adding drama and poignancy to the situation, his death occurred eight days following his official retirement from CBS’s iconic 60 Minutes. Shafer had been a presence on the program for forty-six (!) years – “the […]

Does Captain America’s New Movie Get Government, Law and Liberty RIGHT?

Ya gotta give hefty, even super–powered, props to any super-hero movie that doesn’t content itself with getting action scenes right, nailing CGI or managing cool-looking heroes’ costumes; one that, instead, also plunges headlong — think Spiderman leaping off a skyscraper — into profound themes; questions, perhaps, involving government, law and liberty which have vexed humankind […]

Donald Trump’s Abortion Statement Is Hardly the Worst Thing He’s Done

Undeniably, the Donald Trump campaign, finally, has been reeling — not necessarily finished, but in serious-damage control mode. The sixty-nine year old Republican presidential candidate has ventilated so many scandalous statements, done so many provocative things in the past nine months — okay, the past several decades, truth be told — keeping a tally can […]

Unproductive Politicians Continue to Do NOTHING About America’s Reckless Immigration Laws

As though America needed another murderous reminder that prudence frowns on nations which flood themselves with throngs of hostile outsiders and their deleterious ideologies: We get the recent Brussel’s carnage (thirty-two killed/over 300 hurt); before that, San Bernardino’s terror attack (14 fatalities/22 injured); and Paris mere weeks preceding that one (130 slaughtered/368 wounded.) I understand, […]

As Obama Names His SCOTUS Nominee, Scalia’s Life Showed What Matters

Allow me to play “Captain Obvious” for a moment: Being tapped to fill a vacant Supreme Court slot is a big deal.  Even so, I was a tad surprised when D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland — Barack Obama’s newly revealed nominee to replace recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia — nearly broke down, twice, visibly overcome with emotion, […]
