  • Walter E. Williams 1936-2020

    12/02/2020 7:21:22 PM PST · by rktman · 53 replies ^ | 12/2/2020 | Thomas Sowell
    Walter Williams loved teaching. Unlike too many other teachers today, he made it a point never to impose his opinions on his students. Those who read his syndicated newspaper columns know that he expressed his opinions boldly and unequivocally there. But not in the classroom. Walter once said he hoped that, on the day he died, he would have taught a class that day. And that is just the way it was, when he died on Wednesday, December 2, 2020. He was my best friend for half a century. There was no one I trusted more or whose integrity I...

    That moment when someone says, "I can't believe you would vote for Trump." I simply reply “I'm not voting for Trump.” I'm voting for the First Amendment and freedom of speech. I'm voting for the Second Amendment and my right to defend my life and my family. I'm voting for the next Supreme Court Justice(s) to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I’m voting for the continued growth of my retirement 401K and the stock market. I’m voting for a return of our troops from foreign countries and the end to America’s involvement in foreign conflicts. I'm voting...

    "I'm going to put it very simply: the president of the United States has the authority to do what the president has the authority to do, which is very powerful. The president of the United States calls the shots," Trump said Monday evening, pressed on his claim during a news briefing at the White House. He continued: "When somebody’s the president of the U.S., the authority is total, and that’s the way it’s gotta be." But experts — and the Constitution — say Trump is wrong. The authority to require businesses to close in a public health crisis is what...
  • My Long Goodbye to S. Fred Singer

    The first time I laid eyes on climate science pioneer Fred Singer was in a scenic elevator at the Marriot Marquis in NYC, in March of 2008. The hotel was hosting the premiere International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC), and I was there to cover the event for American Thinker. Dr. Singer was there not only to dazzle the crowd of noted skeptical climate scientists, economists and policy experts from around the world, but also to launch his new Non-IPCC report, a rebuttal to the agenda-driven propaganda of the then recent IPCC Fourth Assessment (AR4). Singer’s unique, soft-spoken wit was...
  • Eliot Engel: Pelosi Has ‘Been Brilliant’ During Impeachment

    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “brilliant” for her handling of President Donald Trump impeachment. When asked about Pelosi holding the articles of impeachment, Engel said, “Well, at some point, I think what Nancy has done is frankly been brilliant, because otherwise it would just be business as usual, no matter what was done or not done and that’s certainly not beneficial for the American people. Look, I think that Senator McConnell ought to realize that he’s not a part of the defense trial, that he is a juror. His...

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

  • Sowell obliterates 'equality of outcomes' nonsense

    Last week’s column discussed Dr. Thomas Sowell’s newest book “Discrimination and Disparities,” which is an enlarged and revised edition of an earlier version. In this review, I am going to focus on one of his richest chapters, titled “Social Visions and Human Consequences.” Sowell challenges the seemingly invincible fallacy “that group outcomes in human endeavors would tend to be equal, or at least comparable or random, if there were no biased interventions, on the one hand, nor genetic deficiencies, on the other.” But disparate impact statistics carries the day among academicians, lawyers and courts as evidence of discrimination.

    JFK’s Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when Charles de Gaule decided to pull out of NATO. De Gaule said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible. Rusk responded, “Does that include those who are buried here?” DeGuale did not respond. You could have heard a pin drop. *** When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of ’empire building’ by George Bush. He answered by saying, “Over the years, the...

I don’t like spicy food.” 2. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.” 3. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.” 4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels....

    U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has a penchant for doling out interesting and unconventional names for new warships, but a petition currently on the White House website wants the next major warship to be named something that may be too outlandish even for him. The petition suggests that the next major vessel be christened “USS The Deplorables,” as the petition notes, “to honor those citizens who rose up to defend America and the Constitution from the globalists.” The name is taken from a remark Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made on the campaign trail to refer to supporters...

    In 1993, the president of Wellesley College approved a new rule upon being contacted by Bill Clinton’s White House. The rule stated that all senior theses written by a president or first lady of the United States would be kept under lock and key. The rule was meant to keep the public ignorant about the radical ties of the first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to the radical Marxist organizer, Saul Alinsky. The 92-page thesis was titled, “There is only the fight…: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.” The thesis became unlocked after the Clintons left the White House and is...

    Carly Fiorina will be the only presidential candidate invited to speak at the 2016 March for Life rally because, according to the event’s president, she embodies the theme of this year’s march: “Pro-Life and Pro-Woman Go Hand-In-Hand.” “Mrs. Fiorina was asked to speak because she embodies the theme particularly well; she will speak only to the theme, not her candidacy,” Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, said in a statement to Breitbart News, during an election year in which the pro-life base of the GOP can tout many strong candidates who believe in the...

    Turning the drawing board on a Pulitzer Prize winning liberal cartoonist who consider his daughters trained monkeys, Senator Ted Cruz (R)--or a staffer--tweeted   a devastatingly accurate cartoon portrayal of the mainstream media's adoration of Hillary.   Other Pulitzer Prize worthy cartoonists quickly followed. Will the lap dog press howl in protest?  Bow wow.
