  • Liberals Are Not the Enemy

    Forgive me. I say “liberal” sometimes when I mean something else. My mistake is habit, not irony. (Irony would require some intent on my part.) I grew up disparaging liberalism. I grew up reading and watching William F. Buckley Jr., for whom liberalism was the enemy. In the post-WWII era, the liberalism of the day […]

  • Trump Initiates NFL Labor Dispute

    Yesterday, I predicted the NFL would suffer a season-shortening labor dispute this season or next. The reason: President Trump’s pressure on owners to crack down on anthem haters will stir up a fight between NFL Players Association and the owners. As if on cue:     President Trump, in an exclusive interview with “Fox & […]

  • NFL Losing a Laugher (Video)

    Blowout. Embarrassment. Lopsided. Laugher. Humiliation. Fans are doing to the NFL what Ray Rice did to his girlfriend in that elevator. Bars are banning football. The VFW has condemned the NFL.  Fans are burning jerseys. American Sniper’s widow livid. Viewership is down 11% year-over-year. Fans boo players they recognize. Baltimore fans demanding Ray Lewis statue […]

  • Jack Kemp Stood for Civil Rights . . . And America

    Jack Kemp is on the top of my wall of heroes. Literally. An autographed Kemp card sits on top of my bookshelf housing the works and images of my heroes. As the NFL self-destructs, it’s worth reading about Jack Kemp’s work for civil rights. And for the Republican Party. And for conservatism. Jack Kemp’s Activism […]

  • President Trump Popped the NFL’s Biggest Zit

    Coming to a head. President Trump seems pathologically opposed to festering problems. When he sees a festering problem, he pops it like a zit. For example, the North Korean nukes problem has festered since the Clinton administration. Trump is bringing Little Rocket Man to a head. NAFTA has been festering since the Clinton administration. Trump […]

  • What Villanueva Did Was Wrong

    By now you’ve seen the photo. The iconic photo. One lone Army Ranger veteran defying his team to salute the flag during the Star-Spangled Banner.   You know that Alejandro Villanueva’s jersey and t-shirt immediately became the best-selling merchandise from the NFL’s store. Villanueva served three tours of combat duty as an Army Ranger. He’s […]

  • What Else Can You Do?

    Brain damage. They all have brain damage. And they’ll likely die from it. Like Aaron Hernandez. 99 out of every 100 football players have serious brain damage. Kneeling for CTE NFL players and owners decided to show their disrespect to the flag, law enforcement, and the USA by kneeling during the national anthem. In a […]

  • Franco Harris: All American

    You might not know about Franco Harris. You might wonder why he’s so unhappy, like many of us are, with the NFL’s anti-American antics lately. But his wonderful heritage tells a lot about why my favorite running back respects America. His dad was an Army soldier. His dad met his mom in Italy during World […]

  • NFL Hates Football Fans; Fire Them All

    You can see the battle brewing. It’s coming to a head. And no one is telling you the real reason the NFL is dying before your eyes. Everyone sees the symptoms of football’s death spiral:  empty stadiums. Crashed ratings. low quality. Criminals on the field. Some people call it “the National Felony League.” Frustrated fans […]

  • Finally! Our President Stands Tall

    They were dumbfounded. Those United Nations stuffed shirts were dumbfounded. Struck dumb. Silenced. Shocked. Floored. Those sissy diplomats were shaken. Appalled. Frightened. Never in the sordid history of the United Nations has an American president spoke in unvarnished truth in unvarnished terms. Trump has the best words. Trump used his best words today. The best […]

  • Fire Jeff Session

    Greg Jarrett thinks Jeff Sessions should resign. I do, too. I felt like the lone voice on the right last week when I wrote “Counseling Sessions.” It feels great to have Greg Jarrett agree: Jeff Sessions should resign. As Jarrett puts it: Sessions appears either incapable or incompetent.  He has resisted producing the documents relevant […]

  • Flush the Clapper. It Stinks!

    James Clapper lied to Chuck Todd. Clapper wiretapped Paul Manafort and lied about it. Just like Trump said. James Clapper looks like a kind old grandfather. Like Josef Stalin. Or an elderly Charles Manson. Like Stalin and Manson, Clapper’s soiled name deserves to be flushed into the bowels of history’s bio hazard tank. James Clapper […]

  • Equifax Update: More Breaches, More Lies

    You will be mad. You probably don’t have a contract with Equifax. Your creditors do. When you apply for a loan, you give creditors permission to: Obtain your credit file. Update your credit file. You expect that creditors vet their vendors, don’t you? You assume banks and credit card companies test their vendors’ security. And […]
