  • The Hypocrisy of Hollywood in the era of Trump

    Throughout America and beyond, Hollywood’s elite are banging loudly on their drums and singing the denigrations of Trump. For a “tolerant” crew they sure have no tolerance for those who sing to the beat of a different drummer. It comes across as a collective bullying with each tormenter drawing strength and power from those speaking up before him. It’s easy to liken it to the adult version of the school bully. There is a host of hypocrisies that thrive within the elite of Hollywood and, on any given day, they come to life on social media, print media, radio and...
  • Democrats Don’t Actually Believe in Democracy

    Yeah, we’re a republic, but we also have democratic rules, norms, and traditions. Too bad the Democratic Party doesn’t believe in them.Case in point – their bizarre embrace of illegal aliens. Democrats seem to think that foreigners who violate our laws have a greater right to determine what will be America's laws than actual Americans. After all, that's their argument when they whine because some illegal is getting shipped back to his Third World hellhole-of-origin. They seem to think that just because some uninvited, unwanted, unlegal trespasser (we’re not supposed to call them “illegal,” right?) has been violating our laws...

    Six months later...CNN's Fareed Zakaria has it figured out. Or at least he thinks he does.Donald Trump became President Trump, the host mused, because Americans wanted to stick it to the elites. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said."There's a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That's why they're sticking with him," he continued. (Free Beacon) Zakaria went on to...

    Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites — for not publicly condemning Trump. Sigh. Why, why, why do these entrenched Republicans insist on picking public fights with their fellow GOPers? It doesn’t endear them to anyone but their own dwindling bases. And we know their bases are dwindling because try as they might, their candidates — their Marco Rubios, their Mitt Romneys, their Jeb Bushes — just couldn’t win against Trump. Yet six-plus months into Trump’s...

    This is for all of those who are not in the MSNBC orbit. Of course, many of you probably already know this, but for a movement that stresses diversity and talks about bringing all people together to fight racist, misogynist, and xenophobic Donald Trump, it’s pretty much a band of white, wealthy, and overly educated progressives who are still stung that Hillary Clinton is not president, or at least that’s the D.C. area, which accounts for one-third of those who have taken part in the protests against President Trump. The Washington Post noted that disparities in education, income, and race...

    An Op-Ed by Peter Wehner in today’s NY Times titled “Declaration of Disruption“ goes far in explaining why HRC found 25% of Americans “deplorable.” The elite are petrified of change. It means they are at risk of losing their hold on power and the economy. “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness” The...

    He is literally hated by his peers, considered crude, boorish and untalented. But despite having had some failed businesses he continued to work his butt off, kept his nose to the grindstone and somehow managed to survive. Well, not just survive, thrive. Somehow this unsophisticated rube managed to write several books while also building an eponymous international business empire that employs thousands of people. He’s successful beyond most people’s wildest dreams, and still, he’s ridiculed endlessly by the elites.  No, not Donald Trump, Guy Fieri, the Donald Trump of Flavortown: I'm aware he's the subject of a fair amount...

    President Donald Trump has failed at getting the proper message out during his time as a politician and is "sabotaging his own agenda," political analyst Karl Rove wrote in an opinion piece. Rove, who worked in the White House under former President George W. Bush, argued in The Wall Street Journal that Trump's Twitter habit is causing a lot of problems for him. "Mr. Trump has figured out how to tweet his way around the mainstream media," Rove wrote. "Yet by disregarding basic fact checking, he is deepening the already considerable doubts Americans have about his competence and trustworthiness."

    Nine years after Barack Obama accused small-towners of clinging to guns or religion, nearly three years after Jonathan Gruber was shown to have attributed ObamaCare’s passage to the stupidity of the American voter, and eight months after Hillary Clinton pronounced half of Donald Trump’s voters “irredeemable,” Democrats are now getting some sophisticated advice: You don’t win votes by showing contempt for voters. In the last week or so a flurry of articles have appeared arguing for toning down the looking-down. In the New Republic Michael Tomasky writes under the heading “Elitism Is Liberalism’s Biggest Problem.” Over at the New York...

    The globalist elites are running out of time because Jeff Sessions is onto them and will not stop until their sinister plan to destroy America is exposed and they are defeated. LOCK THEM ALL UP! James Comey’s stunning televised judgment against prosecuting Hillary Clinton was not a decision to protect the Clinton crime family or Comey’s personal and family involvement with the Clintons over decades. It was a battle tactic designed to protect Barack Hussein Obama - the globalist elite’s presidential puppet on a string. Barack Obama is not the prime mover of anything - he is a malignant narcissist...

    Sustainable Development is harmonization of our system of government with the global government envisioned by billionaire elites Mixed-use apartments overbuilt to suffocating capacity The recently installed speed tables around the mall are too high, the asphalt around is crumbling and deep pools of rain water are gathering around them as there is no proper drainage. These were totally unnecessary; on any given day traffic is backed up and very slow, nobody is speeding. They were installed to make it more difficult for people to use their cars to go shopping; the regional planners want residents to use the new metro...

    Manipulation and misdirection This country has very big problems, and none of them – at least not the serious ones – were created by Donald Trump. Take your pick. The debt, the unfunded entitlement obligations, the messed up health care system, the crime, the cultural disintegration, the tax code . . . the political class gave us these problems over the course of many decades. Whether by neglect or active foolishness, they have imperiled our fiscal stability, our economic vibrancy and even the safety of ordinary people. They’ve also made it harder for us to protect ourselves against external threats.

    President Andrew Johnson invoked the Monroe Doctrine in February 1866, and demanded that the French leave Mexico There is actually more to the holiday of Cinco de Mayo than great tacos or lively music; there are lessons to be learned hidden within the history of this holiday, which provide deeper understanding of a very perilous time in the Americas. Today Cinco de Mayo has taken on a more political significance in light of Donald Trump’s campaign promises, and his challenge as the President of the United States to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. It was one major...

    Actress Dakota Johnson was just one celebrity caught on camera disregarding the Big Apple’s smoking ban during a star-studded event held Monday night in New York City. A Snapchat photo of Ms. Johnson, taken by British singer Rita Ora and obtained by the Daily Mail newspaper, shows the “50 Shades” star lighting up a cigarette in what appears to be a smoke-filled bathroom. The photograph was taken during the annual Met Gala, a fundraiser for the city’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Other Met-attending celebrities caught smoking in the girls room, so to speak, were Bella Hadid, musician Courtney Love and...

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — While pundits breathlessly reported this week that President Trump’s Gallup approval rating has plummeted to a historic low (dipping to 37 points), not all approval ratings are created equal. Because in American politics, geography is everything. Live in an urban, minority or college setting, and Donald J. Trump is underwater in the polls in a big way; he gets a frosty 29 percent approval rating in the cities, 35 percent approval in the urban suburbs, in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal survey. But, live in the second ring of suburbs outside the cities, or the exurbs or...

    (Skip) I work at Stanford University but live on a farm between Fresno and Visalia. What one place values does not necessarily mean much in the other. Writing an essay no more impresses my rural neighbors than knowing how to drive a tractor or use a chainsaw is of interest to my Palo Alto colleagues. Rural people who mine, log, farm and build hold a tragic view that they are always but a day away from nature’s revenge — drought, flood or storm — and that the human experience is always a war of sorts. In part, the rural backlash...

    Permit me to suggest a semester’s worth of work that some college students may wish to undertake: Study the life of John Lennon and, after you finish reading two or three biographies of the famous leader of The Beatles, go read The Bell Curve by Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray. When you have completed those assignments, read Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers. The purpose of this proposed curriculum is to understand how the abandoned son of an English sailor became one of the most influential figures in popular culture during the remarkable decade of the 1960s. What was it about Lennon,...
