  • NY Times Bites off More than It Can Skew

    Fake news is alive and well -- and thriving on the pages of America's biggest newspapers. No wonder more people are tuning out the media. They don't trust it. And outlets like the New York Times aren't giving them any reason to try. At some point, the Times's editorial board must have gotten together and decided to reprint every lie ever told about abstinence education. The result was May 5th's work of fiction, a breathtakingly dishonest, 602-word crime scene of journalism that justifies America's growing distrust of the press. About the only thing that was accurate about the column was...

    Another school shooting, another young white male in custody, seemingly non-existent red flag warnings of such violence, such horror. One CBS reporter concluded his on-the-scene-account of the Santa Fe school carnage by saying, "Still no motive." But of course, there is a motive. Why are school shooters primarily young, white, public school students, quiet, seemingly unassuming, yet loaded with so much anger that they take to the one object of their anger-their public schools-their hurt and their misery? The violence of pressure cookers, Molotov cocktails a shotgun and a .38 revolver expressed by this most recent, white male shooter. Look...

    Hat Tip: Kevin Collins Thought you’d like to be informed, since the media won’t let you know... The White House....short report..... it's called ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ - as titled by Rush Limbaugh. Nothing Trump does - to the good - will ever make it on the national news. The media have their agenda and they're going to stick with it, no matter what. On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump...

    Do you still print stuff out? If so, you're undoubtedly like most of us who, at least periodically, still need to print out a hard copy of some digital document – whether for archiving, legality, to put into a cookbook, or whatever. Yet we've been promised for years that all of us using computers would mean that all those beautiful trees could be saved, presumably so we can hug them and live in them in the green paradise envisioned by some. What happened? Reality happened. And because of that, at least in part, our forest workers can still feed their...

    Talkin' 'bout their generation... Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan got a lot of good press when it came out, for its tribute to those who fought and died to save our western civilization from the German Nazis. It also garnered praise for its powerful and graphic depiction of what it was probably like (Hollywood influences notwithstanding) to have made that deadly but vital beach landing on June 6, 1944. This is the perfect time of year, approaching America's annual Memorial Day celebration and the anniversary of the Normandy invasion, for Paramount to reissue a 20th Anniversary edition of Spielberg's film...

    Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done...

    "If they try to remove Trump, (there) won't be a Constitution Crisis; it'll be a Revolution Crisis," a call in guest told a popular U.S. talk show host recently. With a population of 325 million and over 300 million firearms, America’s gun owners have no intention of allowing gun grabbers to steal their lawfully owned firearms. Amendment II of the US Constitution states "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The militia acts of 1792 and 1903 are giving militia groups...

    What's in a word? Why does it matter whether we call someone who breaks the law to enter the country an "illegal alien" or an "undocumented immigrant"? What's the difference between a Christmas tree and a "holiday tree"? It's just semantics, right? Yes...and no. It is just semantics. But "semantics" means the meaning of words. Words exist so that we might differentiate one thing from another. Without words we have chaos. And it starts with the first words; a baby says ‘Mama’ to distinguish Mommy from Daddy. Words shape how we think; they color how we view the world. And...

    Two Radical Arab Terrorists boarded a flight out of London. One took a window seat and the other sat next to him in the middle seat. Just before takeoff, a U.S. Marine sat down in the aisle seat. After takeoff, the Marine kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, “I need to get up and get a coke.” “Don't get up,” said the Marine. “I'm in the aisle seat; I'll get it for you.” As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the Marines shoe...

    You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a terrorist with a huge rusty knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges at you yelling “allah akbar!” You are carrying a Kimber 1911 .45 ACP, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do? A Democrat’s Answer Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! What is a Kimber 1911 .45 ACP? Does the man look poor or oppressed? Is he really a...

    The aim to eliminate poverty, especially under sanction of law, results in all sorts of injustice, including taking from one group of people in order to give to another without the consent of either. That is not charity. It is compulsion, and God admonishes against it. (2 Corin 9:6-8) Moreover, like all social programs, the lofty goal of eradicating poverty breeds corruption among those who administer the agenda. Emotions are manipulated to loosen the purse strings of well-meaning citizens to contribute to a cause that no human could ignore. Yet very little of the money raised or taxed to address...

    An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, 'Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?' The bar immediately falls absolutely silent… In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, 'Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, Given that you are blind, that you should know five things: 1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2. The bouncer...

    A young Texas boy had one lifelong dream: he wanted to be a lawman. The kid grew up big, 6' 2", strong as a longhorn, fast as a mustang. And he could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. When he came of age, the young man applied where he always dreamed of working: the County Sheriff's Department. After a series of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him into his office for the young man's final examination.. The Chief Deputy said, "You're a big strong kid and you can really shoot; so far...

    What is the duty of the Church concerning poverty? This is one of those areas where the Church has unfortunately surrendered its influence by either adopting the mission of the government or embracing the worldview of the culture, neither of which is consistent with what the Bible teaches. The Bible, in fact, speaks very plainly about the poor. And since the duty of the Church is to preserve knowledge of God, it is incumbent upon us to correct misunderstandings regarding the proper role of God’s people in this and other areas. In so doing, we preserve a free and civil...

    Hat Tip: Michael Bruno "Natural Causes" By Barbara Ehrenreich. Twelve; 210 pages. A FEW years ago Barbara Ehrenreich stopped going for check-ups. The decision to forgo cancer screenings and physical exams has set her apart from her friends, whose calendars are full of doctors’ appointments and whose cupboards are crammed with supplements and medicines. But as the American writer, who is 76, explains in “Natural Causes”, once she realised she was “old enough to die”, there was no good reason to live a “medicalised life”. Her remaining time is “too precious to spend in windowless waiting rooms.” Ms Ehrenreich is...

    What is the proper role of Government? We have witnessed the perspectives of those in government; we have heard the answers in presidential debates. But what was envisioned by those who DESIGNED our constitutional republic? Wouldn’t you like to KNOW what government is supposed to be doing? The interesting thing is, we don’t have to guess, we don’t have to make it up, we need only look to the framers of our Constitution. It is simplistically elegant, the way they described the role of the Senate and the House. Yet even the simplest of explanations seem to have eluded the...

    Perhaps you could call it a coda to an outstanding symphony of audio/videophile tech. Oppo Digital, the company whose products have won it many awards over the years – and which deserved them – has announced it's winding down its operations. Say it isn't so, Oppo! The announcement on the company's website as of April 2, came as a big surprise to me. I've been reviewing the company's products since they first appeared on the North American scene and have yet to find one that wasn't a great addition to whichever market niche it was invading. From TV's to DAC...

    Ed. Alan Cooperman writes: --Give a starving African a drink, he will thank you and steal whatever else you brought along. --Turn your back and he will take his machete to your neck, white colonialist. --You HAVE and everything he's been told is that's because YOU and YOUR KIND stole it from him and his tribe... And YES, Mr. Cooperman has been there and seen the over-populated, progressive wasteland which Africa has become, thanks to the self-serving munificence of the global, bleeding-heart left.
