About Chuck de Caro

Chuck de Caro was a CNN special assignments correspondent in the 1980s. A pilot since he was 17,  he is currently working on a book about the World War I efforts of Fiorello La Guardia, Giulio Douhet, and Gianni Caproni, which led directly to today’s U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command.

The Micro Machismo of Jorge Ramos

The diminutive Jorge Ramos, Univision anchor and noted Spanish-language whangdoodle, while posturing to maximize his pandering at last Thursday’s Democratic presidential primary debate, addressed the audience partly in Spanish. “Este también es nuestro país,” he said. Translation: “This is our country, too.” At that moment, in a quiet cemetery outside of Oyster Bay, New York,

CNN Goes Kamikaze . . . Again!

CNN’s Jim “Divine Windbag” Sciutto has plunged the network into a journalistic Kamikaze explosion worse—much worse—than the immensely flawed 1998 Tailwind fiasco. That awful bungle 21-years-ago led to the firings of producers April Oliver and Jack Smith, the resignation of senior producer Pamela Hill, and the only-slightly-gentler departure of Pulitzer Prize-winner and 18-year-veteran Peter Arnett.

What Do You Mean, ‘We’?

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, the former congressman from Texas who couldn’t beat Ted Cruz in a U.S. Senate race but who nevertheless believes he can win the presidency, said a curious thing at the Democrats’ third primary debate in Houston on Thursday night. “Hell yes,” he said, “we’ll take your AR-15 and your AK-47 .

How to ‘Inconvenience’ Walmart’s ‘Semi-Woke’ CEO

Walmart is too good a resource for many Americans to commit to a boycott of its 4,759 stores, which have sprung up across our country like triffids: Those plants from science fiction that seemed initially beneficial, apparently benign, but eventually . . . maybe not so good. For those of us who feel we have

A Bedtime Story: Doug McMillon, The Walmart Jabberwock

Well boys and girls, there once was a man named Lewis Carroll, the creator of Alice in Wonderland, who would be bemused as Walmart re-creates some of his other fanciful characters, starting with CEO Doug McMillon, The Walmart Jabberwock. Heretofore relatively unknown politically, save for attempting to head off an Arkansas religious freedom law, Dougie

An Open Letter to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon

Dear Doug: While I, too, am shaken by the magnitude of the tragedies that have occurred at Walmart stores, I am dismayed at what seems to be your sometimes incongruous response. Before I point out what I see as non sequiturs in your company's decision to stop selling ammunition for handguns and certain rifles, let

CNN’s Brian Stelter: Mother Zucker’s Mini-Me Marches Into Mockery

Brian Stelter, host of CNN’s "Reliable Sources,"  is either a propagandist in the league of Joseph Goebbels (Stelter demonstrated on Sunday that wild Nazi comparisons go unchecked on his program, so I didn’t think he’d mind if I did the same thing to him) or, like Chris "Fredo” Cuomo, he is an Eddie Haskell clone

CNN Goes Kamikaze

Jeff “Mother” Zucker, head of CNN, showed his fearless leadership style by hiring deep-state flameout Andrew McCabe. But the move also cast him in a new role as heir to the infamous Captain Motoharu Okamura of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Zucker once proudly proclaimed: “I think it's the sign of a leader to step up

The ‘Fredo’ Factor

Back in 1983, when CNN meant Cable News Network and not “Complete Nonsense Network,” I was CNN’s very first special assignments correspondent. So, as a former CNN guy—a 100 percent Italian-American male who speaks better Italian and better English than Chris Cuomo—I was flabbergasted that a CNN host of the same Italian-American extraction would have
