I just returned from a news-starved Christmas in London, where my choices were either sensational tabloids, with 60-point headlines over nothing stories on every page, and the tired reporting on BBC television. I did, however, find a magazine, The Week, which claims to contain “All you need to know about everything that matters,” quite refreshing. Continue reading
There’s been a whirlwind of post-election news, primarily surrounding the transition of President Elect Donald Trump and his appointments, so I thought I would touch on some things you may have missed because, frankly, I think most of you have tuned-out since Nov. 8. I agree, the campaign was too long. Continue reading
“I think this is going to be the most important election our country has ever had. Certainly in the modern era. If we don’t get it right … if we go another four or eight years with the insanity and the stupidity of these leaders (Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton), I’m not sure you’re going to be able to turn it around … I think it could be over. We can’t allow this opportunity to slip away.” – Donald Trump
“This election in many ways will determine what kind of country we will have,” said Hillary Clinton. If she is elected, you will soon not recognize this country of ours. Continue reading
Hillary Clinton likes to remind us that as senator she was on the Armed Services Committee and she circled the globe umpteen times as secretary of state and, oh yes, she was in the situation room when Osama bin Laden was taken out.
She believes that “experience” gives her license to criticize Donald Trump’s recent comment that if the Iranians continue to hassle our Navy in international waters they would be “shot out of the water.” Continue reading
Perhaps you’ve noticed how President Obama, Hillary Clinton and the media (of course) are criticizing Donald Trump’s references to Russia and Vladimir Putin; his most recent a suggestion that “wouldn’t it be nice if Russia would help us defeat ISIS.” I thought it was time to refresh your memory on the failed U.S. – Russia relations during the Obama administration. Continue reading
I must tell you, I get a great deal of satisfaction when a story surfaces that tends to validate an opinion that I have previously stated in this blog. Continue reading
We learned that the New York Times will be publishing a story on Sunday about Ben Rhodes, a foreign policy advisor to President Obama, duping the public on the Iran nuclear deal by creating a false narrative. According to leaked information, the story will reveal how Rhodes pushed information leading us to believe the administration was dealing with Iranian moderates, while we were actually talking to the ayatollahs. It is sure to be a major topic in the news in the days ahead. Continue reading
Just when I think I’ve heard it all, I read that Secretary of State John Kerry told CBS’s Face the Nation that the chaos of the 2016 U.S. presidential election “is an embarrassment to our country” as he reflected on the anti-Muslim sentiments of the candidates and the growing concerns of world leaders. Continue reading
Yes, I know, you’ve had it with Washington. You helped give the GOP the majority in the Senate, and they didn’t follow through with promises. Along came Donald Trump and you liked what he was saying; political correctness be damned.
I hope you’re happy now, because it appears there’s no turning back. Trump has been allowed to bully his way to several primary victories and two digit leads in most of the state primaries ahead. Continue reading
Yesterday we learned that Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei presented medals to members of the Revolutionary Guard who took part in the humiliation of America with the “capture” of our sailors in the Straits of Hormuz. Continue reading
