Media Bias

Bookworm Beat 1/12/20 — the “I don’t have answers, I only have questions edition”

Reading through the news, I see that most of the news is so crazy, it doesn’t inform me; it just leaves me with questions that I’ll now share with you. I’ve mentioned before a game I play with a friend. He reads me headlines and asks me to guess whether [Read More]

The transgender movement shows that our media, not our government, is Orwellian

There is a grave danger that, if our media gets us to believe the big lie behind the transgender movement, it can get us to believe anything. Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as “the truth” exists. … The implied objective of this line of thought is a [Read More]

Iran So Much Winning

Further thoughts about the situation in Iran

I continue to believe that Trump did the right thing vis-a-vis Iran by killing Soleimani, the terrorist, and these are a few random thoughts to explain why. At a base, reflexive level, I’ve gotten to the point at which anything the Democrats are against, I’m for. If they think we [Read More]

Is the corrupt moral culture in Hollywood causing actual brain damage?

I’m slowly feeling my way to arguing that Hollywood’s actively corrupt culture causes structural brain damage that leads to bizarre behavior and politics. Be warned. This is not so much a post as it my working through my feeling that “there’s something here,” but I’m not quite sure what it [Read More]

Watching Trump Derangement Syndrome in action in 2020

We’re only five days into 2020, but thanks to the Soleimani strike, Trump Derangement Syndrome is already exceeding anything we’ve seen before. I knew that 2019 wasn’t the year of peak crazy Trump Derangement Syndrome, despite the excesses of the House’s impeachment process. I knew that the Left would be [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 1/3/20 — the “Iran really screwed the pooch” illustrated edition

This hasn’t been a good week for Iran and the internet meme makers are on it. This is a brilliant collection of other people’s wit, plus a few random things. This one’s not a joke; it’s an insight into the American Left: These next five aren’t clever, they’re very sweet [Read More]

Trump has shown true leadership with events in Iraq

Trump’s brilliant targeted strike against one of the world’s most evil men, while it offended the Left, may help bring down the Mullahs’ rule in Iran. So, let’s have a brief rundown, shall we? On December 27, a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base in Kirkuk, Northern Iraq, killed [Read More]

Bernie Sanders by Matt Johnson Medicare for All
Politics

I don’t like Bernie because his “Medicare For All” plan is terrible for America’s health and economy

Bernie’s “Medicare for All” plan ignores facts: we can’t afford it, the European system floated on American money, and socialized medicine has bad outcomes. This is a somewhat updated version of a post I wrote in February 2016, before the Hillary mafia got Bernie to retire from the fray. When [Read More]

Wishing you a musical Happy New Year

As I age, my only regret is that I can’t celebrate my truly happy New Year with my long-gone parents — but I can share it with you. Happy New Year! Perhaps because I’m getting older, or perhaps because 2019 was a year of change and 2020 will be a [Read More]
