Opinion: I Told You So; It Was Never Trump Who Putin Supported

Opinion: I Told You So; It Was Never Trump Who Putin Supported

Posted at 5:30 am on September 25, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on Twitter I told you so. At least as far back as July 2019, I’ve been saying that Vladimir Putin’s objective was never to help Donald Trump get elected. Instead, the bare-chested bear hunter was only interested in sowing chaos in the United States. He did so by undermining public confidence in our electoral system, while the Democrats helped him.In July 2019, I called in to the David Webb** show on Sirius XM. Mr. Webb kindly continued my call across a segment break so we could discuss the former Soviet, now Russian tactic of...

Opinion: Jared Kushner -- A Much-Maligned Foreign Policy Success Story

Posted at 5:30 am on September 18, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterRecently, I published two articles about the exciting news of President Trump’s latest Middle East peace success, to wit, Bahraini and Arab Emirati recognition of Israel’s right to exist and the beginnings of formal diplomatic relations. This brings to 4, the number of Arab League countries recognizing Israel, doubling the number who did so when President Trump took office.Read: Read: In my Monday piece, I made quick mention about the New York Times giving a minor nod to Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law...

Opinion: Trump “Amateur” Diplomacy Shows That Establishment “Experts”...Aren’t

Opinion: Trump “Amateur” Diplomacy Shows That Establishment “Experts”...Aren’t

Posted at 5:30 am on September 16, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterThere’s an old saw that goes, something like this: The Titanic was built by experts, the Ark, by an amateur. The military experts, the perfumed princes in the Department Defense, continue to oppose their duly elected President. They have burned through a lot of credibility and in the process, sullied the military and its reputation as one of the most trusted institutions in these United States. The amateur President Trump on the other hand, continues to be proven right at every turn, yet they still oppose him.A short...

Opinion: President Trump Brokers The First Arab-Israeli Peace Accord In 26 Years; Is Middle East Peace At Hand?

Posted at 6:30 pm on September 15, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterPresident Trump has done it again. Shortly before 2:00PM EST today, the President officiated at a ceremony whereby two Arab Nations forswore their previous enmity towards the State of Israel and formally established diplomatic relations. This is the first Arab-Israeli peace accord in 26 years.Of some significance, this occurred 2 days prior to the 42nd anniversary of signing of the Camp David Accords in which President Jimmy Carter brokered such an agreement between Israel and Egypt, the first Arab nation to...

Opinion: The Missed Opportunities of the Obama Presidency

Posted at 5:30 am on September 15, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterHow did we get from electing and re-electing a Black President of these United States, to streets filled with rioters burning, looting, and in some cases, outright assassinating their fellow Americans—rioting, burning, looting, and killing, purportedly over the statistically suspect issue of Police murdering Blacks? The numbers show that a White person encountering the police is just as likely to die at their hands as a Black person. How did we get here and what fork in the road could we have taken to avoid this...

Opinion: Now Is Our Chance To Remake Public Education

Opinion: Now Is Our Chance To Remake Public Education

Posted at 5:30 am on August 11, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterIn the wake of a (for mostly the elderly) deadly pandemic, Americans might just have been given a potential boon…a one-time opportunity to remake public education. As you are quite aware, no matter the lockdown status of each state, the one thing that has been consistent is that up until now, kids were being kept at home while school districts struggled with distance learning.This has had some deleterious effects, especially for folks who have kids with special needs. My colleague Joe Cunningham wrote an excellent piece...

Opinion: Black Lives Matter, Just Not to Democrat Politicians: Part VII, (Conclusion, Life Is What Matters)

Posted at 5:30 am on July 14, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterOver the last few articles, I’ve pointed out a few specific policies and positions espoused by the left and the resultant deleterious effects on the American black population. Some of these policies were overtly racist and in others, the racism was far more insidious, such as the “soft bigotry of low expectations,” as used in hiring or college admission decisions. Although forcible servitude is now allegedly forbidden, its place has been taken by the promise of subsistence level (barely) support, in exchange for pulling...

Opinion: Black Lives Matter, Just Not To Democrat Politicians: (Part IV, Fatherlessness, Poverty and Crime)

Posted at 5:30 am on July 8, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterLast we met, we discussed how President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty, his “Great Society,” had led to the impoverishment of the Black Family and its ultimate dependence on those programs. At the very end, one aspect we noted, was the deleterious effect those programs had on the institution of marriage—and its concomitant growth of child poverty. Again from Robert RectorThe culprit is in part, the welfare system itself, which discourages work and penalizes marriage. When the War on Poverty began, 7 percent of American...

Posted at 5:30 am on July 7, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterIn 1960, 22 percent of black children were in single-parent households. In 1985, 67 were in that condition. By 2015, the number had grown to 77 percent. What happened? Simple. President Lyndon Bains Johnson and his self-styled, “Unconditional War On Poverty.”In 1964, while delivering his annual State of the Union Address to Congress, President Johnson proposed a far-reaching series of social programs, declaring “Our aim is not only to relieve the symptom of poverty, but to cure it and, above all, to prevent it”.This “War...

Opinion: Black Lives Matter, Just Not to Democrat Politicians (Part II, Minimum Wage and Union Vote Buying)

Posted at 5:30 am on July 6, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterAt the end of my previous article, I noted that federal legislation and active enforcement of that legislation had put paid to many active and overt forms of Democrat subjugation of minorities. By the 1930s, “subjugation,” meant something slightly different than chattel servitude. Instead of blatantly overt but now infamous policies, such as lunch counter segregation, the left, instigated by the unions, was forced to adopt subtler means.Enter federally-mandated minimum wages. Back in January 2019, noted economist Thomas...

Posted at 5:30 am on June 30, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterThe Army Colonels’ Promotion List has been drafted. LTC Alexander Vindman’s name is supposedly on it. The list is thought to be at the White House for the President’s approval before it goes to the Senate for its Advice And Consent. Right on cue, stories from the New York Times (along with several other outlets) cautioning against Presidential interference. These folks claim that a Presidential intervention with the Vindman promotion could politicize the Military. Supposedly several retired Flag Officers have made their...

Posted at 5:30 am on June 9, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterThe Democrats must be getting desperate. They are now reaching back to the 2016 Presidential campaign for techniques that didn’t work the first time. Specifically, they’ve rousted out the same old sordid cast of characters, RINO’s all, to express their non-support for President Trump in the General Election. On top of that, they’ve attempted to trade on the reputations of recently retired senior military officers to pile on.So far, the cast of characters includes Colin Powell, a retired 4 Star General, Chairman of the...

Posted at 4:00 am on May 31, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterSee the picture above? It’s a result of Democrat governance. The outrage we are seeing manifested over the past few days, is focused on the wrong target(s). We are getting wall to wall coverage of the aftermath of the in-custody death of George Floyd. Riots in major cities, property damage and even a few deaths are just part of that aftermath. Innocent people are being harmed, while at the same time, some are attempting to affix cause and blame for Mr. Floyd’s death on the wrong parties.As usual, using admittedly...

This edict targets you and 30 million other citizens simply because you are a member of a specific economic class or category of worker. Your vocation has been determined to be “non-essential.” The directive is clear. You will forgo your wages for an indeterminate period of time. You have no choice. If you fail to comply, you face fines and/or imprisonment. The stated objectives of all of this, are to preclude the medical system from...

Opinion: Compared To What? At What Cost? What Evidence?

Posted at 4:00 am on May 2, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterI like to listen to talk radio. I learn a lot and once in a while, I even snag a good idea for one of my articles. Not too long ago I happened to catch the David Webb show (Sirius XM 125) when a caller (Frank) mentioned one of my favorite people, Thomas Sowell. He brought up one of Sowell’s best thoughts. From the man himselfI’ve often said there are three questions that would destroy most of the arguments on the left.The first is: ‘Compared to what?’The second is: ‘At what cost?’And the third is: ‘What hard evidence do you...

Opinion: Trump Rolls the Media Again, This Time About Disinfectants

Posted at 4:00 am on April 26, 2020 byShare on FacebookShare on TwitterPresident Trump has done it again…like clockwork. As I’ve opined before, there seems to be a little battle drill that he likes to execute on occasion. It goes something like this. First, early on in the week, he makes some “outrageous” statement or comment. Of course, the chattering class…media, pundits, and politicians of all stripes rush to decry his remarks. These oh-so-smart people usually use the same terms to badmouth the President — Racist! Unaware! Imbecile! I’m sure our RedState readers can come up with many...
