“Emotionals”—Such As Our Millennials, Democrat Voters, and Suburban USA Housewives—Have No Reason. They Don’t, Or Can’t, THINK.

“Emotionals”—Such As Our Millennials, Democrat Voters, and Suburban USA Housewives—Have No Reason. They Don’t, Or Can’t, THINK. OPINION: BY JEFFREY A. FRIEDBERG <<<——————>>> There’s a  problem with Emotionals. These are “folks” who don’t actually think, but react. They react with emotions—with feelings. Not with actual thoughts or reasoning. They don’t [Read More]

On Iran, Trump makes some very smart moves

When it comes to Iran, Trump is brilliantly locking the country in a box by breaking it financially, frightening its leadership, and courting its people. Although I no longer post any content on my real-me Facebook page, I do check it out regularly. It helps me stay abreast of interesting [Read More]

A few thoughts about the trade war with China

China has been slowly sucking America dry through unfair trade. Trump is right to demand that it treat us fairly and I think he’ll win this trade war. When I graduated from high school, a family friend, recently widowed, sold me her deceased husband’s eight-year-old car for a price I [Read More]

[VIDEO] Why don’t you support Israel?

The latest excellent video from Prager U features former Canadian PM, Stephen Harper, explaining why Israel deserves support, not condemnation. When I was Prime Minister of Canada, I was often asked this question: “Why do you support Israel?” My response, in effect, was always the same: Why wouldn’t I support [Read More]

New York Times Scandal??? What Scandal?

The New York Times Scandal? What scandal? Whatever can you mean? I always have understood that a scandal was an unusual and unexpected immoral or dishonest behavior from a person or institution previously considered moral, honest and reputable. So I admit to being confused. The fracas appears to be about [Read More]

Notre Dame Burns, And A Civilization With It

Today, Paris’s centuries old cathedral Notre Dame caught on fire and is in the process of being destroyed. The world famous spire and roof of the Gothic cathedral are gone, and the wooden structure that’s  supporting the roof is being destroyed by the blaze. It is quite likely that if [Read More]

Early History of US Army Advisers and MAAG Mission in Vietnam, 1959-1963

Veterans’ Tales by Vassar Bushmills Seems you can’t turn your head without finding our friend SGM Fred Barnes in the middle of history. Last year we introduced Fred as an E-3 trooper whose unit was brought into to witness (as guinea pigs) the first and only firing of the Army’s famous atomic cannon in [Read More]

Politics

Trump is not Right Wing because America has no Right Wing

American conservatives, Trump included, by definition cannot be Right Wing, because their primary goal is to lessen government control over the individual. John Lott wrote an article challenging the media’s contention that the New Zealand mosque shooter is “right wing” and, naturally, tying that right-winged-ness to President Trump and his [Read More]

The three stooges (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar) in the House of Congress are the gift to cowering Republicans that keeps on giving.  Kudos to Congressman Lee Zeldin for daring to go where Kevin McCarthy among others are too spineless to go.

A power outage in Venezuela and Leftist denial

The collapse in Venezuela, rather than bringing enlightenment to America’s Leftists, instead sees them double-down on their delusions about socialism. This post is what Instapundit refers to as a “shot” and “chaser” scenario. Here’s the shot (hyperlinks omitted): In Venezuela, there’s a new front — the equivalent of an EMP [Read More]

North Korea negotiations reveal media’s ignorance

The pause in North Korea negotiations reveals that the media is locked in a dangerous imaginary world where negotiations play out like bad old-time movies. To date, the stupid Leftists in the media have been trained like Pavlov’s dog to expect “a win” whenever there’s a summit with a foreign [Read More]
