California Gets Its MOGO Working

In 1987, California Governor George Deukmejian returned $1.1 billion directly to the people “to protect this money for the taxpayers.” In the current $200 billion budget, outgoing Governor Jerry Brown returns zero dollars to the people and looks the other way at crumbling infrastructure and fathomless pension debt. On the other hand, the budget comes […]

The Cosmic Racist

Meet the enduring godfather of Razaismo: Any teacher can corroborate that the children and youths descended from Scandinavians, Dutch, and English found in North American universities, are much slower, and almost dull, compared with the mestizo children and youths from the south. No student names, grade records, SAT scores, or subsequent career information accompanies the […]

TV Guide to Murder by Criminal Illegals

When President Trump warns about danger from violent criminal illegals he usually cites MS-13. That murderous gang is a clear and present threat, but Americans can see other examples in the popular series “Forensic Files” on HLN.   “The Music Case,”  a 2004 episode again making the rounds, charts the murder of Cally Jo Larson, […]

TED’s New Twist: Technology, Evasion, Depravity

Just so you know, TED is a “nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics—from science to business to global issues—in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently […]

Criminal Lobby is Rolling in Cash—Thank Soros

President Trump last week met with California public officials who oppose the state’s sanctuary law which, as the president said, “provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women and children at the mercy of sadistic criminals.” California Governor Jerry Brown tweeted […]

Kennedy Privilege Still Prevails in Connecticut

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has proven adept at raiding lawyers’ offices in the middle of the night but the former FBI boss has not been able to identify the specific crime that might justify his massive ongoing investigation. Those who find this troubling might consider the case of Michael Skakel, the nephew of Ethel Kennedy […]

Help Me Randa! Firing Back at Fresno State’s Femme Fatale

Comedian Jay Mohr has called for California State University-Fresno’s Bush-bashing English professor, Randa Jarrar, to be fired. But, as Fresno State’s Bruce Thornton notes, dismissal is a long shot so it’s probably better to ignore the woman who called the late Barbara Bush an “amazing racist” and who can’t wait for other members of the […]

‘Poontronage’: When Kamala Met Willie

he is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough,” said the president of the United States in 2013. “She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general in the country.” That would be former California Attorney General Kamala Harris, daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, and now the state’s junior […]

Clinton Coup Clan

There’s something happening here. A coup d’état, also known as a coup in both English and French, is “an illegal and overt seizure of the state by the military or other elites within the state apparatus.” Such overthrows have been common in the Third World, but now American Millennials, GenXers and Baby Boomers alike can witness the […]

The Lion in Water: Some Facts About ‘Chappaquiddick’

Way back in July 1969, reporter Leo Damore covered Senator Edward Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick caper for the Cape Cod News. As he showed in his masterful Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Cover-Up, everything Kennedy said about the incident was a lie. Ted Kennedy rode his brother John’s coattails to win a seat from Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate […]

‘Migrant Caravan’ is an Act of Aggression

It is not an ordinary thing for thousands of people to spontaneously decide to go on a march to a foreign nation, demanding things of that nation. Americans have good cause to wonder who, exactly, is behind the “caravan” of more than 1,000 Central Americans in Mexico that had been heading north until Tuesday. Officially, […]

Presence of Malice

In the ongoing saga that is Washington, thousands of government emails go missing and a strange dossier charts a bevy of bedwetting prostitutes. The cast of this tale features, among others, a former FBI boss, several shadowy Russians, an American Soviet scholar with a short-wave radio, and a British spy we might call Agent 00$6.95. […]

California Suit: Criminal Illegals and Why Democrats Protect Them

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suing California for “sanctuary laws” he says protect criminal illegals. True to form, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff apparently tipped off hundreds of illegals—including one convicted for sodomizing a drugged victim and another convicted for armed robbery—ahead of a recent sweep by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. In these conditions, […]

About Those Meddling Russians

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment last Friday of 13 Russians for interfering in American elections made for a busy news cycle. On Fox News, a breathless Marie Harf, formerly of the U.S. State Department, said many Americans get their news from Facebook, so Russian interference was a serious matter. Conservative Matt Schlapp, on the other […]

Adventures on a Bullet Train

The United States has had no military draft since 1973, so the armed forces have to recruit. One recent television ad showed troops rushing into action and asks potential recruits: “which way would you run?” That may have caught the attention of Spencer Stone of Sacramento, California. He joined the U.S. Air Force but did not […]

‘Maîtres Chez Nous’—Masters in Our Own House

The Trump Administration plans to end the temporary protected status that let 200,000 Salvadoran nationals live and work in the United States for nearly two decades, believing they would stay forever. Many now ponder a move north, but the Canadian government is not exactly rolling out the welcome mat. “You can’t just come to Canada […]

Mexican Greatness: California Elected Leaders Head South

California on January 1 officially became a sanctuary state, refusing to hand over those who violated U.S. immigration laws to federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Economist and actor Ben Stein sees a rebellion and expects a civil war . . . in the courts. Meanwhile, the “Calexit” movement wants a sovereign nation or “an independent […]

The Insults Will Be Televised

A year after his election, Trump haters are out baying at the sky like a pack of Iditarod sled dogs. For others, it hasn’t fully sunk in that Donald Trump, author of The Art of the Deal, is actually president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world. So in the Age […]

Dead Man Voting

Most Americans may be unaware of the Diplomatic Security Service, “the law enforcement and security arm of the U.S. Department of State. It bears the core responsibility for providing a safe environment for the conduct of U.S. foreign policy.” In the course of those duties, the DSS conducts investigations, and one will prove of great […]
