Media Now Embarrassed For Covering Up Biden’s Weakness

Media Now Embarrassed For Covering Up Biden’s Weakness

It is both a little bit funny and a little bit sad, even a little pathetic, when a very old man tries to show he is as strong and active as a much younger man. President Biden often tries to carry his arms and take a couple of quick steps when he comes on stage to make it look almost like he is running. And because there have been many comments and reports about how weak his voice is, President Biden has begun to shout at times during his speeches, something he never did as a much younger man....

Assassination Accomplishes Nothing

Assassination Accomplishes Nothing

I was a few minutes into my talk at FreedomFest when former President Trump was almost assassinated. It was ironic because my talk was about the U.S. national-security establishment’s assassination of President Kennedy. While my talk specifically focused on the CIA’s production of a fraudulent copy of the famous film of the assassination by Dallas businessman Abraham Zapruder (the subject of my book An Encounter with Evil), I ended it by emphasizing why the JFK assassination is so...

‘Operation Jupiter’ and a Revolution in the Making

‘Operation Jupiter’ and a Revolution in the Making

Brussels Élites let out their long sigh of relief – the French Right was blocked. Markets complacently shrugged; “everything must ‘change’ to remain the same.” The Centre will find a way! Macron successfully had blocked the “populist” Right and Left through mandating a Centrist tactical defensive line to be dug, obstructing both political poles. And the tactical blockade was a success. The “Right-wing” Le Pen party – out of 32% of votes cast – won 125 seats, (just 22% of the Legislature)....

A Time of Shame and Sorrow: When It Comes to Political Violence, We All Lose

A Time of Shame and Sorrow: When It Comes to Political Violence, We All Lose

“Whenever any American's life is taken by another American unnecessarily—whether it is done in the name of the law or in the defiance of law, by one man or a gang, in cold blood or in passion, in an attack of violence or in response to violence—whenever we tear at the fabric of life which another man has painfully and clumsily woven for himself and his children, the whole nation is degraded.”— Robert F. Kennedy on the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. (1968) There’s a subtext to...

Elon Musk is Right: End the Online Censorship Racket

Below is my column in the Hill on the recent report of the House Judiciary Committee and the disclosure of yet another effort to silence opposing viewpoints by squeezing the revenue of individuals or groups, including Elon Musk and Joe Rogan. Here is the column: Few Americans have ever heard of the Global Alliance for Responsible Media, let alone understand how it shapes what they read and hear in news and commentary. That may soon change. An alarming new report of the House Judiciary...

Why We’ll Never Know What Really Happened in Butler, PA

Why We’ll Never Know What Really Happened in Butler, PA

Just days after the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump, theories are flying from all directions. Many who ridiculed the “conspiracy theories” of conservatives are now suggesting the whole event was a set-up to boost Trump in the polls ahead of the election. Others suggest it was the “deep state” or even foreign actors who organized it. Former US Navy Seal and founder of Blackwater, Erik Prince, claims that “The fact that [the Secret Service] allowed a rifle armed shooter...

Trump, Orban, Putin: Why are all the ‘dictators’ hellbent on peace?

Trump, Orban, Putin: Why are all the ‘dictators’ hellbent on peace?

One of the greatest farces of these modern times is that those who scream the loudest about democracy and human rights are the very same people who violate international norms at every opportunity. In the June issue of The New Republic, a left-leaning US political journal, a scowling Donald Trump was featured on the cover sporting a Hitler moustache above a caption that read: “American fascism, what it would look like.” “We chose the cover image, based on a well-known 1932 Hitler campaign...

Supporting Israel Is Big Business in the United States

Supporting Israel Is Big Business in the United States

In a recent article discussing how US Treasury Department tax breaks are exploited by groups that raise money in America in support of the Israeli so-called Defense Forces (IDF), I concluded that it does not require any particular brilliance on the part of even a casual observer to realize that both politically and economically Israel and Israelis are not treated like everyone else by governments at various levels in the United States, quite the contrary in many cases. Nevertheless,...

It’s That Time Again: MSM Launches ‘Muh Russia’ Election Narrative As Brands Collude To Silence Dissent

It’s That Time Again: MSM Launches ‘Muh Russia’ Election Narrative As Brands Collude To Silence Dissent

While the Democratic party melts down over Joe Biden's cognitive decline - an obvious risk to US national security, the 2024 election wouldn't be complete without a Trump-Russia narrative. To that end, the Wall Street Journal reports that the Russian government has launched a 'whole-of-government" effort to influence the US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump - who, for some reason, Russia held off on invading Ukraine while he was president (and ostensibly...

Holes In the Constitution

Holes In the Constitution

In his famous dissent in Olmstead v. United States, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis in 1928 called the right to be left alone the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men. He was referring to the right to be left alone from the government -- a right that today we call privacy. Olmstead was involved in bootlegging, and the feds tapped his phones without any search warrants. The Supreme Court, which had never recognized the right to privacy, permitted the use...

We were ‘deceived and gaslit for years’, all in the name of ‘democracy’; then ‘poof’, it collapsed overnight

We were ‘deceived and gaslit for years’, all in the name of ‘democracy’; then ‘poof’, it collapsed overnight

The Editor at Large for the Wall Street Journal, Gerry Baker, says: ‘We’ve been “gaslit’ and deceived” – for years – “all in the name of ‘democracy’”. That deceit “collapsed” with the Presidential debate, Thursday’. Until the world saw the truth … [against] the ‘misinformation’ … the fiction of Mr. Biden’s competence … suggests they [the Democrats] evidently thought they could get away with promoting it. [Yet] by perpetuating that fiction they were also revealing their contempt for the...

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Government: Rep. Goldman Insists that the Country is Safe in the Hands of Others

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Government: Rep. Goldman Insists that the Country is Safe in the Hands of Others

Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, wrote “The President [of the Galaxy] in particular is very much a figurehead—he wields no real power whatsoever. […] His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.”  This week, Rep. Daniel Goldman (D-NY) seemed to be taking the Hitchhiker’s Guide as a guide for government. When asked about the alarming physical and mental decline of President Joe Biden, Goldman suggested that it really does...

Twilight’s Last Gleaming

Twilight’s Last Gleaming

When a presidential debate devolves into an argument over golf scores and afterward the public argues about the candidates’ mental acuity or personal honesty, when the question for voters is who is the sharper debater rather than who would be more faithful to the Constitution, when both major party candidates support mass surveillance, undeclared foreign wars and borrowing trillions of dollars a year to fund a bloated government, nearly all of which is nowhere countenanced by the Constitution,...

Former Israeli PM Admits Israel’s War Crimes Can’t Happen Without US Support

Former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert has been launching a forceful attack on Benjamin Netanyahu in both US and Israeli media for sabotaging peace in Gaza and pushing Israel to the brink with Hezbollah in Lebanon, during which he inadvertently made an interesting acknowledgement which flies in the face of the Biden administration’s feigned powerlessness to rein in Israel’s insanity. “I accuse the prime minister of Israel of a deliberate attempt to destroy the...

The Republican Establishment’s Sterile Foreign Policy Perspective

The Republican Establishment’s Sterile Foreign Policy Perspective

Those Americans who might hope that the growing public opposition to continuing U.S. aid to Ukraine might signal a wave of fresh thinking about foreign policy in the Republican party are likely to be disappointed. Most members of the establishment cling to the idea that the principal worry about Republican policy views is the growing appeal of “isolationism.”  A recent example was a Washington Post column by Marc A. Thiessen. Thiessen was responding to a speech by President...

The West – Indubitably – has Lost Russia, and is Losing Eurasia Too

There perhaps was a momentary shrugging-off of slumber in Washington this week as they read the account of Sergei Lavrov’s démarche to the US Ambassador in Moscow: Russia was telling the US – “We are no longer at peace”! Not just “no longer at peace,” Russia was holding the US responsible for the “cluster strike” on a Crimean beach on last Sunday’s Pentecost holiday, killing several (including children) and injuring many more. The US thereby “became party” to the proxy war in Ukraine (it was...
