Democrats Celebrate Their Heritage

  And by “their heritage,” of course, I mean, slavery: Tuesday at USA Today there was a fascinating “fact check” article covering that idiotic spectacle put on by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and several other congressional Democrats last week in which they donned African kente cloth scarves and knelt on the floor of Emancipation Hall for some eight minutes […]

A Reason to Riot, or a Pretext?

  Heather Mac Donald explains the relevant facts: In 2019 police officers fatally shot 1,004 people, most of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. African-Americans were about a quarter of those killed by cops last year (235), a ratio that has remained stable since 2015. That share of black victims is less than what the […]

Hallowed Ground

  Try to imagine a row of men, standing shoulder to shoulder, all of them armed with rifles. Picture those men standing on a hill, a few hundred yards in the distance, with their guns aimed at you. Now imagine yourself, standing amid a similar group of armed men, ordered to march across that distance […]

Trust the Health Experts!

  Last week, I was shocked to hear that Los Angeles was planning to be on coronavirus lockdown until August. Even if that was your plan, why would you announce more than two months of onerous restrictions so far in advance? Just extend it by two weeks now, see what happens and, if the number […]

Who’s Right: James Carville or … Me?

  Last night on MSNBC, James Carville uncorked a rant about how the Trump campaign is run by “grifters” who know they’re going to lose: “Every poll, we’re ahead. There’s nothing but overwhelming evidence. Look what his campaign is doing. They’re a pack of grifters. His campaign manager got two condos, a Ferrari, a yacht, […]

COVID-19: Metrics in a Time of Plague

  Perhaps you didn’t notice, but since Sunday, Fox News has dropped their habit of framing the screen with graphics showing the worldwide and nationwide totals of coronavirus cases and deaths. Perhaps some executive at the network came to the same realization I’d had for several days, namely that this Death Watch theme was . […]

Guess Who Was on TV Last Night?

  OK, I think you might recognize this guy. The reason why I didn’t promote my appearance Thursday night on The Ingraham Angle in advance was because the way cable news “hits” are scheduled, you never know if you’re actually going to be on until it happens. Like, this had been planned for a day […]
