News, Bias & Winning

In late February, ABC News suspended a veteran correspondent, David Wright, after Project Veritas released video in which the reporter acknowledged he was a socialist and criticized his network’s political coverage. “Oh yeah,” Wright responded, when asked if he were a democratic socialist. “More than that I would consider myself

Dead Economists Walking?

Zombies don’t exist. Not like in the movies. Or like in the pages of The New York Times. The Times’s economist Paul Krugman has a new book out, Arguing with Zombies, and, if I ever had the tiniest margin of utility nudging me towards reading it, John Goodman’s review in

People Power in the Republic of China

Which country has handled this worldwide pandemic best? The question was asked on Facebook, by one friend, and answered this way by another:  “Government: South Korea; People: Japan.” My response? “Combo of people and government: Taiwan.” There is a lot in the Taiwanese response to explore.  “The first cause of

How Un-Warlike

It’s war! A common refrain regarding the coronavirus. “This is our World War II,” say media mavens and politicians . . . who have never had to endure anything like World War II. The utter vapidity of the “war” response was explained very well by Peter Schiff on a recent

Gouging vs. Kicking

New crisis, old reactions. The market has failed, we are told, to handle the coronavirus pandemic . . . even though it has just begun. We hear demands for vast public takings (California Gov. Gavin Newsom commandeering hotels to add quarantine stations and hospital beds), huge transfer programs (including gargantuan

Mistaken Misogyny

Are Democratic Party women . . . misogynists? Last week, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the presidential race after coming in third in her home state and faring no better in any of the first 18 state primaries and caucuses. “Warren seemed to be the ideal candidate,” informed

All the Tyranny in China

Are you going to make a big fuss? I mean, about China — dominated by the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Because some people get all bent out of shape over their totalitarian government placing a million or two Muslim Uighurs into re-education camps surrounded by high walls and razor

Beautiful Colors, Ugly Terms

“My friends were asking for the ‘skin-color’ crayon,” explains 9-year-old Bellen Woodard.  She realized the request was for the peach-colored crayon but, being the only black kid in her third grade Loudoun County, Virginia, classroom, she also knew her skin wasn’t peach-colored. As her mother told Washington Post columnist Theresa

The C-Word Emerges

“We’re not going to throw out capitalism,” declared Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former New York City mayor now seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.  “Other countries tried that. It was called communism and it just didn’t work.” Bloomberg was responding to a question by MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson at Wednesday

Chrissie Hynde, Rush,

Hymn to Him?

If I’m ever Back on the Chain Gang, I want to be shackled right next to Chrissie Hynde, the lead singer of The Pretenders, who sang that 1980s song.  Actually, I’m generally a little Middle of the Road on their music. But I enjoy hearing The Pretenders’ hit My City

Madame Guillotine

A Maine woman running for the U.S. Senate has chosen for her campaign logo the guillotine. Yes, she calls herself a ‘democratic socialist.’ Well, on Twitter it is ‘DemSoc.’ Her name . . . No, start again. On the campaign Twitter page the candidate’s “preferred pronouns” are listed as “they/them.”

The Whistleblower Who Shall Not Be Named

“YouTube — Google, one of the largest, most powerful companies on the planet — has just censored political discourse from a U.S. senator on the Senate floor,” reports independent, online journalist Tim Pool.  The case refers to the alleged “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella, around whom hangs a sort of hush-hush infamy
