Now Dems Take a Bead on the First Amendment

Having spent a month machine-gunning the Second Amendment “right to keep and bear arms,” now the Democratic Party is taking a bead on the First Amendment right to “freedom of the press.” The Party is suing President Trump, Russia and Wikileaks over the bogus Russian interference in the 2016 election. As I have written on Fleming Foundation from the start of this nonsense in late 2016, the Russians couldn’t possibly have influenced the election’s outcome because it’s too difficult to figure out how to do it, even for Americans, let alone Muscovites. President Trump can defend himself and the Russians...


Actually, progressives, Nuremberg condemned Nazi abortions

The tone of the whole piece, which uses “fascism” or “fascist” 14 times, is that of a young Red Guard during Mao’s Cultural Revolution 50 years ago, shutting down all voices it doesn’t agree with: “Last year, we stood with students who righteously shut down the Trump regime mouthpiece Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley, and we were part of preventing the parade of fascist monsters from storming the same campus in a so-called ‘Free Speech Week’ last September.


Guns ’n’ Grammar

The late Charley Reese got the gun issue right: “Some might say the Second Amendment is obsolete. Our own century shows us that it is not.  Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot and Mao all saw to it that people were disarmed prior to commencing their reigns of terror and tyranny.  God forbid, but Americans, too, could find themselves some day having to choose between submission or resistance to a tyrant.”


15 Results from the Iraq War Started 15 Years Ago

Here are 15 results from the Iraq War, which President George W. Bush launched 15 years ago: 1. As a veteran – Cold War generation – I sometimes use the VA Hospital in Long Beach. Every time I go there, I see a young man suffering injuries from the war, such as blown-off limbs. Once I saw a young guy, about 25, who was a paraplegic in a wheel chair. No doubt others I see suffer from PTSD. 2. The war showed America was a “paper tiger,” as the ChiComs used to say. Its military, which Neocons in the 1990s...


Dems Lurch Further Left

It seems hardly possible, but the Democratic Party is lurching even further to the Left. At this rate, they’ll soon advocate kidnapping missionaries to feed them to cannibals. (I hope I’m not offending a key interest group there.) California is the epicenter of Dem Party doctrines and cash. Silicon Valley Leftist oligarchs now form the money foundation for Dem candidates across the country. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is salivating at the prospect of again becoming House Speaker. Yet even she still isn’t Left enough for many in the party. The Sacramento Bee’s story after last weekend’s California Dem confab in...


Will Mitt Be McCain?

The media are speculating that Mitt Romney will become the “next” John McCain, a thorn in President Trump’s side, assuming the former Massachusetts governor is elected to the U.S. Senate from Utah this November. It may seem so. Although Trump contributed to Romney’s 2012 presidential bid, and just endorsed his Senate bid, Romney blasted Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, and has done so recently as well. “With McCain’s retreat, some turn to Romney to carry his torch,” intoned the Washington Post on February 15. “Romney took to Twitter, for instance, to lash out at Trump last month after The...


Dems Form Circle Firing Squad after Florida Shooting

  “I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.” –Will Rogers Despite what the humorist said, since FDR’s election in 1932 Democrats have been able to cobble together enough factional groups to form winning coalitions fairly often, beginning with their 20-year run, 1932-52, when they grabbed the presidency and both houses of Congress. They have been aided by the squabbles in the Republican Party and its presidents’ penchant for betraying their own base, something Democratic presidents do less often to their base. In the industrial era, the Democrats’ main power base has been the...
