screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-10-42-50As I’ve recently reported, President Trump has good reason to suggest the press is the enemy of Americans.  While not all media outlets and reporters are liars and knaves, far too many are. Not only are the individual journalistic standards of reporters all too often at odds with the truth and filled with partisan leftist bias, the same is true of the editors who are supposed to police newsrooms to ensure journalistic standards are upheld. The Examiner has provided a current list of blatant journalistic malpractice. I’ll discuss just a few. By all means, take the link to read the rest:

I Beg Your Pardon

Gentle readers, long ago I set a goal of a substantive article a day for this scruffy little blog, and I’ve done a pretty good job with that–until today.  I hit school running at 7:15, as always, and major essays were due today, meaning, much grading at school over the weekend.  I had just enough time after school to run home and change into a tuxedo, then off to a major concert that turned into a 3.5 hour death march (not my gig: I was obligated to show up and sing the music).  I didn’t make it home until 2330.  So until tomorrow, when I have something new for you, I hope this will help:

Pushing Too Far?

screen-shot-2017-02-22-at-8-49-33An open question is how long the Left can maintain the anguished and unthinking intensity of hatred and rage that followed President Trump’s election. Traditionally, it is difficult to maintain such high levels of interest and criminal intent for long. However, the left, this time, is led by very well financed, ruthless and anti-American forces, perhaps even led by Barack Obama himself. His community organizing organization has published and disseminated a manual for subverting democracy, and is working assiduously to put it into effect.

Trump Derangement Syndrome #2963

NOOOOOOOOOO!

NOOOOOOOOOO!

I know Democrats are frustrated with the results of the election. I can even sympathize…on second thought, no, I really can’t. In fact, I took just a little illicit pleasure in their melodramatic shock and agony over Mr. Trump’s election, but just a little. However, that didn’t last long, and now, I’m a bit worried about the depth and utter derangement of the Democrat Party, which, more and more, seems to be as anti-democratic, and anti-American as it is possible to be absent open warfare.

And today, the good folks at Legal Insurrection tell us:

With the uninstalling of Obama 2.0, America has dodged a civil rights bullet, as Fox News reports: 

Being tough on terrorism — particularly the sorts of homegrown terrorism that we’ve seen now in Orlando and San Bernardino — means making it harder for people who want to kill Americans to get their hands on assault weapons that are capable of killing dozens of innocents as quickly as possible,’ Obama said in his weekly radio address. ‘That’s something I’ll continue to talk about in the weeks ahead.

The Changing American Media Landscape

screen-shot-2017-02-19-at-1-59-07-pmIt continues to be amusing, and pathetic, to hear the legacy media squeal about President Trump’s horrible breaches of Americanism and patriotism. Why, Mr. Trump is undermining the very foundations of democracy! He’s un-American! The irony of one of the least patriotic, most anti-American, organs in existence suddenly claiming their role in our republic is virtually holy is breath-taking. Suddenly, these self-imagined elite citizens of the world are defenders of the Constitution? Why? Because Mr. Trump is daring to tell the truth about them.  He’s not afraid to take on people who buy ink by the barrel, and that changes the entire game.

Conservative Cognitive Dissonance

All political philosophies have contradictions, or perhaps more accurately, those espousing them have contradictory goals. I don’t identify as a doctrinaire conservative, and certainly not as a progressive. I vote for whoever will be likely to do the least damage to the Constitution and who will be likely to at least slow, if not reduce, the size and power of the federal government. That generally puts me mostly on the side of conservatism, but not always. In the last election, dear oh dear, was that particular voting choice easy.
