What a Great Time to Be President!

hose who seek the presidency have many reasons for doing so, but anyone who seeks the nation’s highest office hopes to make his mark as a leader of our free republic. For some presidents, the times provide less difficult challenges to surmount, and history little notes their tenure; for other unfortunate souls, events overwhelm them, […]

The Left Wants to Distract Us from a Choice in 2020

n Washington, D.C.’s Lafayette Square during the Left’s latest attempt to create “Year Zero” by erasing American history, the less-than-peaceful protestors endeavored to create a “Black House Autonomous Zone” (BHAZ). As is their destructive wont, they defaced St. John’s Episcopal Church and a statue of President Andrew Jackson. Before they could topple the statue of […]

Check Your Radical Privilege

n the taxpayer-funded, cushy corridors of leftist academe, the radically chic proselytizers of hatred smugly define their concept of “White Privilege”: If you don’t need to care about a societal problem, it is because of your white privilege. (The shorthand for “White privilege” is simply “privilege,” because 1619.) By pouring this racist tenet of cultural […]

Unmasking the Pandemic Masquerade

irst, pandemic policymakers averred masks weren’t useful in stopping the spread of COVID-19. Now, these authoritarians in government, health care, and the media are demanding citizens wear masks. What gives? Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, by their own admissions and actions, the pandemic policymakers have been wrong. Egregious and injuriously errant models regarding mortality and hospitalizations; […]

Only You Can Save the Limousine Liberals!

n a blockbuster first, B.S. News virtuously presents a public service announcement, because never have the stakes been greater for your betters. During the COVID-19 pandemic governmental lockdowns, it is easy to forget the victims of another governmental fiat. But U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) can never forget these victims. Thanks to the Speaker’s […]

A Pandemic of Illogic

hen dealing with politicians, the less logical the statement or action, the more political the statement or action. This truism is notably evident as we contend with the pandemic of COVID-19 and its attendant pandemic of illogic. For example, Governors Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.), and Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), have instituted continuing lockdowns—some of […]

Who Broke General Flynn Upon a Wheel?

n July 1, 1967, The Times of London published an article by its editor, William Rees-Mogg, titled “Who Breaks a Butterfly upon a Wheel?” The editorial decried the severe sentence handed out to the Rolling Stones’ frontman, (now Sir) Michael Philip Jagger, for a minor drug infraction. Rees-Mogg’s editorial turned public opinion in the rock […]

What If the Pandemic Policymakers Are Wrong?

mmured in Michigan on a prison gin gray overcast day, a thought occurred: What if they’re wrong? I am not talking about the dissenters to “lockdown” measures or those protesters demanding the restoration of their liberty and the resuscitation of their livelihoods. We know the consequences these contrarians to the conventional wisdom already confront, because […]

Is the U.S. Media Parroting China’s Propaganda?

re U.S.-based media companies and journalists deliberately pushing Communist China’s propaganda and disinformation about COVID-19 to protect their Chinese media partners and profits? Regrettably, it wouldn’t be the first time American media entities served as willing dupes for America’s strategic enemies. In 1931, New York Times reporter Walter Duranty wrote a series of articles praising […]

Narrative Painting by Numbers

n this pandemic, we have multiple and daily reminders about why the corporate-leftist media ranks the lowest in the public’s esteem and confidence—hubris, ignorance, irresponsibility, duplicity, fearmongering, and an abject lack of self-awareness are but a few. For the press, this abysmal reality has been quantified statistically by a recent Gallup poll, wherein “only the […]

Can We Prepare America for the Next Pandemic?

ith every passing moment, nations are establishing precedents for how to contain and ultimately stop a global pandemic. Because the novel coronavirus apparently originated in Wuhan and was immediately covered up by the Chinese Communist Party, the health and welfare of the Chinese people and all other affected populations have suffered from this lethal malfeasance. […]

By News Alone?

hile attending CPAC last month as part of the John Batchelor Show’s panel, “Everything You Didn’t Know About Russia-gate But Were Afraid to Ask,” I had a chance to duck into the main room to catch part of a performance of “FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers.” Produced by conservative filmmaker Phelim McAleer, the play revolves around the […]

Putin Endorses the Democratic Party Establishment

n the days before the tolerant Left wanted Republicans and populists re-educated and/or eradicated, a moderate Democratic friend of mine who held a deep-blue district was engaged in a hotly contested primary against a far-Left opponent. Empathizing, I said, “I know there’s nothing I can do, but . . . ” “There is,” she smiled. […]
