Not Failed Yet

People that never liked or supported President Trump are now saying because of events in Virginia that have nothing to do with Trump that his Presidency is over. They could not be more wrong. These naysayers are deliberately taking what Trump said about those for or against removing statues of Confederates out of context. He said "there were fine people on both sides" about the proposed removal. He was not saying there are "fine people" among the Nazis and Ku Klux Klan. The President has numerous Jews in his own family and certainly does not have sympathy for Nazis.

Retreat or Charge

No battle was ever won by those running away from it. I like President Trump refusing to be cowed and continuing to tell the truth about Antifa.

Why Vilify Bannon

Washington elite, the mainstream press, and even some former Trump insiders are trying to crucify Steve Bannon. They are doing this because Bannon knows the populist pulse of the American people and they do not want those workaday Americans to have Trump's ear or a voice in DC.

Honor the Constitution

I am Jewish. Some of my family members were murdered by the Nazis. I absolutely despise Nazis. I am reading friends' social media posts saying that Nazis must not be allowed to speak in America. While I agree that what Nazis say is reprehensible, I have to say that those calling for depriving them of that right have little understanding of the US Constitution. Only controversial speech needs Constitutional protection. If I say "nice weather we're having", no one is going to try to stifle my speech. If I say "I love pasta", no one will try to silence me. If I say something utterly objectionable like "Hitler was right", many people might try to deny my right to speak. It is precisely that kind of inflammatory agitation that necessitates the First Amendment. To love the Constitution, occasionally means tolerating those with no tolerance for our values.

Cooler Heads Prevail

Can you tell me the last time the well-reasoned argument defeated the clinched fist or the gun?

Something of Rome

Is America an empire, led by bombast, in its last days? If North Korea is allowed to keep nuclear weapons, the US as world leader is a thing of the past.

War or Peace

The US must declaw the nuclear capacity of North Korea or be subject to extortion by the Pyongyang regime. It really is that simple.
