All the Never-Trumpers: We’ve seen this movie many times and it always ends the same

“Bombshell” testimony that promptly falls apart followed by “legal” analysis that the walls are closing in and President Trump is certain to be charged with some unspeakable crime, stop me if you’ve heard it all before.  Regardless, another tired sequel aired just this week in Congress with the same tired stories, only the names have… Continue reading All the Never-Trumpers: We’ve seen this movie many times and it always ends the same

The airline industry can’t take much more of this without permanent damage

Travelers are bracing for another rough holiday weekend of delayed and canceled flights.  Cancellation rates are about four times pre-pandemic levels with many travelers stranded for days.  This cannot continue much longer as there’s no point in traveling if your arrival can only be predicted in days instead of hours. People love to travel.  Almost… Continue reading The airline industry can’t take much more of this without permanent damage

What is the proper remedy for an “illegitimate” Supreme Court?

Progressives take increasingly aggressive aim at the Supreme Court, branding it “illegitimate,” and recommending everything from expanding the number of Justices to ignoring their rulings entirely, but are any of their proposed schemes workable in the real world and what is the best way to proceed when the Court goes astray from your perspective? In… Continue reading What is the proper remedy for an “illegitimate” Supreme Court?

Love him or hate him, Trump delivered the two most conservative Supreme Court decisions in a generation on back to back days

Whatever your opinion on the former President, it’s almost impossible to imagine rulings this momentous before he announced his candidacy seven years ago this month.  There was a time before Trump.  There is a time after Trump.  The ramifications, both good and bad, still remain to be fully seen. Last week, the Supreme Court rocked… Continue reading Love him or hate him, Trump delivered the two most conservative Supreme Court decisions in a generation on back to back days

Juneteenth: The good, the bad, and the ugly

In principle, a holiday dedicated to honoring America’s long march to freedom is an unequivocally good thing, but in practice progressives and Democrat lawmakers twist it for their present political purposes, haranguing the country and proposing radical policies. At the risk of sounding somewhat retrograde and out of step with the times, I have mixed… Continue reading Juneteenth: The good, the bad, and the ugly

Biden supporters should spare us the buyer’s remorse

The media has suddenly discovered that President Biden is a rapidly fading old man and some Democrats are claiming he shouldn’t run again in 2024.  Of course, Biden’s many problems were evident long before he got into office.

Biden and Trump: A tale of two primaries

One wields influence in the party even as some want to prevent him from running for office ever again.  The other’s presence is defined primarily by his absence while some question his ability to run for office ever again.  Strange days in primary season indeed. Calculating the precise influence former President Donald Trump maintains in… Continue reading Biden and Trump: A tale of two primaries

Border agents under fire from within while the border itself is completely broken

Democrats frequently claim they support secure borders and comprehensive immigration reform, but their actions both large and small reveal their true goal of open borders and an endless stream of migrants that we can do nothing to slow or stop. Perhaps nothing encapsulates the progressive position on the border than the Biden Administration’s ongoing efforts… Continue reading Border agents under fire from within while the border itself is completely broken

Everyone knows the economy sucks except Joe Biden

In the face of obvious economic turmoil and a shrinking economy that affects every American, the President has adopted a novel strategy:  Tell everyone the economy is awesome and he’s doing a great job anyway, and then scream about all the supposed lies being told about why he messed it up in the first place. … Continue reading Everyone knows the economy sucks except Joe Biden

The timelessness of Tom Cruise, the last movie star

Top Gun: Maverick is the most successful film in a storied career and perhaps the best case study of movie stardom over time of all time.  Cruise portrays the same character 36 years apart, and makes it clear that nothing has really changed for either him or Maverick, onscreen or off. Tom Cruise is the… Continue reading The timelessness of Tom Cruise, the last movie star
