The Russian Indictments: Who’s Laughing Now?

I recall the time when President George W. Bush claimed to have looked into Vladimir Putin’s eyes and seen a soul.

Adam ‘Pathfinder’ Schiff: Despicable, Smear-Mongering McCarthyite?

The Left Goes “Bananas”

Given Hollywood is a bastion of the Left, it is not surprising their “narratives” are oft recycled by Democrats into political fictions, fantasies and plots. The latest example is the Left’s clamoring to have President Trump declared “unfit to serve” and removed from office under a “novel” interpretation of the 25th amendment. I’ve

The Swamplarkers’ Dirt Purge

Reveling in my freedom in our Age of Communications Revolution, I found myself rummaging through the bowels of YouTube (best not to say for what). In the process, I discovered an exotic foreign past time: “mudlarking.” Pursued in a nation purporting to be a United Kingdom, properly licensed royal subjects amble along the
