Ahmaud Arbery: Focus on Media Bias, Because ‘The Issue Is Never the Issue’

  Andrew Branca, an attorney specializing in self-defense cases, has referred to the “propaganda circus” surrounding the death of Ahmaud Arbery. One of the problems I’ve encountered is that, while my attention to the case has focused on the issue of media bias, which is what this “circus” is actually about, many people seem to […]

Tater Tots With Russia Sauce

  Simple recipe: 1 fat bald CNN personality with zero self-awareness; Several dozen of his own words; Combine ingredients. Bake for one minute and six seconds. Laugh.   (Hat-tip: Ed Driscoll at Instapundit.) Apologies for the lack of blogging today. I crawled down through the layers of media bias in coverage of the Ahmaud Arbery […]

Georgia on My Mind

  “It seemed like a good idea at the time” is not a strong defense in a murder trial, and the question everybody seems to be asking in regard to the death of Ahmaud Arbery is why Gregory McMichael and his son thought it was a good idea to grab their guns, jump in their […]

But as partisan as they are, they are not blind, and anyone who watched Biden stumbling in every media appearance the past two months can […]

‘They Always Blame America First’

  One of the decisive moments of the Cold War, in my opinion, was Jeanne Kirkpatrick’s speech at the 1984 Republican National Convention. In the post-Vietnam era, Democrats had adopted a “human rights” approach to foreign policy that tended toward a stance of moral relativism between Soviet-sponsored Marxist-Leninist regimes and their opponents. A sort of […]

COVID-19: Numbers That Really Matter

Among the dishonest games that the media have played with coronavirus is their habit of reporting cumulative totals of reported cases and deaths as if this is the only metric of the pandemic. Anyone with a functional brain, however, must realize that this is misleading and nearly useless in terms of understanding how the outbreak […]

1993 Video Emerges Supporting Sexual Misconduct Accusation Against Joe Biden

  The hashtag #DropOutBiden began trending on Twitter this morning in the wake of yesterday’s exclusive report by Ryan Grim at The Intercept: A new piece of evidence has emerged buttressing the credibility of Tara Reade’s claim that she told her mother about allegations of sexual harassment and assault related to her former boss, then-Sen.
