Impatience: the real cause of Oscar Ramirez’s and Valeria’s deaths

Although Democrat open borders advocates immorally enticed Oscar Ramirez to head for America, it was his own foolish impatience that killed him and his child. I’m not going to include in my post the photo showing the bodies of Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez and his two-year-old daughter Valeria, lying dead [Read More]

Benjamin Wittes and witless logic about Trump

The Benjamin Wittes “I believe” tweetstorm about Trump, intended to expose conservative “Doublethink,” instead exposed Leftist irrationality and ignorance. The anti-Trump blogosphere, both Leftists and #NeverTrumpers, is excited about an endless series of tweets from Benjamin Wittes all intended, in a sarcastic way, to challenge Trump and his supporters. Before [Read More]

California turned this Democrat into a conservative

My California upbringing shows that people will cling to ideas long after the facts reveal those ideas are flawed — a scary thought for the 2020 election. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, one of America’s bluest of blue regions; attended UC Berkeley, which once was the [Read More]

Leftist politics and the power of visual images

Leftists know that people respond strongly to visual images and use them to great effect. If Republicans want to win, they need to start doing the same. A picture is worth a thousand words. — Newspaper/advertising adage. Some years ago, in a post I wrote about the Second Amendment, I [Read More]

U. S. Customs and Border Protection: “[Border] Walls Work: El Centro Sector” (video)

As we all know, fences do make good neighbors so what is the problem with walls; namely, border walls.  Walls work….PERIOD. Our borders are not secure. All parts of the border where the border walls have fallen into disrepair and are not keeping illegal aliens out must be shored up, [Read More]

Woodrow Wilson Doctrine

It’s time for America to stop living by the Wilson Doctrine

As part of his admirable repudiation of the Wilson Doctrine, Trump absolutely should bring some U.S. troops home and station them on our besieged border. I caught Tucker Carlson’s show tonight and really liked his opening monologue. It ostensibly went after #NeverTrumper Max Boot, but it really was about something [Read More]

On the Wall, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez versus Dan Crenshaw

The debate about the border wall provides an excellent way to contrast two incoming freshman congress critters: Dan Crenshaw and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I’m with those conservatives who believe that we need to take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seriously. It’s true that, thanks to her years at an American college, she went from [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 12/20/18 — the border wall edition

I went overboard in this Bookworm Beat, covering the border wall, Syria, Antisemitism, Europe’s fall, science, Michelle and Melania, media bias, and much more. Good walls make good neighbors. Trump did it — he got the House to include $5 billion in the budget bill to build the border wall. [Read More]
