Will there be “shy” Trump supporters voting this coming November?

I have three reasons for thinking that conservatives will turn out at the polls and support Trump’s agenda this Fall, despite that alleged “Blue Wave.” The doom and gloomers, including the relentless NeverTrumpers, are saying that there’s a good chance that the Democrats will retake the House, because who doesn’t [Read More]

TRADE BRINKSMANSHIP, NOT TRADE WAR, VERSUS GLOBALISM

Vassar Bushmills “Trade War” is a term the enemies of Donald Trump use to denigrate his proposals for restoring a balance to American trade policies. Only it’s not “trade war” but trade brinkmanship, which, as it was first used to define JFK’s strategy against the USSR in his years in the White House, were intended [Read More]

Israel uses social media to expose the corrupt Iran regime

Bibi Netanyahu releases another powerful video speaking directly to the Iranian people — and the world — about the corrupt Iran government.

THE TWO FACES OF THE DEEP STATE AND “THE PEOPLE”

Vassar Bushmills So when they say “the FBI, or DOJ or CIA said this, or did that”, your first thought should be, “Which one?” Especially if it’s the media telling you these things. Also, never forget that is has been this way since at least JFK. In 1998 a man asked me to help [Read More]

DIRTY COPS, DIRTY PROSECUTORS, AND NOW, DIRTY JUDGES

Vassar Bushmills I’m not here to talk about the facts inferred in the title, but our incessant impatience that it all hasn’t been laid bare for us so far. There are several reasons, some fact-based, matching hard evidence to hard law to hard rules of criminal procedure, this latter only [Read More]

The Facts About the Individual Mandate Repeal and the Increase in Premiums

The Daily Signal by Doug Badger It turns out sabotage might be overrated. A new study by the Center for American Progress argues Congress’s repeal of the individual mandate and a proposed Trump administration rule that would expand the sale and renewal of short-term policies will have a devastating effect on 2019 [Read More]

DIGGSTOWN, A CULT CLASSIC BY JAMES WOODS.

Vassar Bushmills I first saw “Diggstown” in a theater, which means I saw it in 1992 after returning from the recently-collapsed USSR. In Cincinnati. I immediately tagged it as classic, passed it onto my sons, more avid movie-goers who concurred. But I didn’t go to see James Wood. I had [Read More]

San Francisco, the City that no longer knows how

The once proud, shiny San Francisco of my youth has turned into a feces ridden hell hole thanks to unabated Leftist policies. I grew up in San Francisco. Moreover, my time in San Francisco goes back long enough that I remember when it transitioned from a working- and middle-class City, [Read More]

Trump is crazy — crazy like a fox and we are so lucky

If Trump is crazy, he’s crazy like a fox. As for members of the media, they are stupid — not stupid in a smart way, but genuinely, truly stupid. I’ve been mentally composing a post in my head today about Trump’s negotiating tactics with Putin, not to mention his other [Read More]

The Time I Took my Wife to Meet the Girls at Manos

Veterans’ Tales by Vassar Bushmills You already know the story of my first visit to Manos, the Russian spy-restaurant in Tokyo. It was 1972. It was run by two brothers from Pittsburgh, former OSS officers during WWII, and within shouting distance of the Soviet embassy, where, at the end of every visit, I’d [Read More]
