Just when you think you’ve heard and seen it all in the Republican campaignathon, along comes prom king Paul Ryan displaying an arrogance that makes Donald Trump look like the Dalai Lama by comparison. Millions of American jaws must have dropped in unison when chameleon Ryan casually told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he’s “just not […]

I watched part of the Cruz-Fiorina town hall Friday and have to admit I was quite impressed with both of them. It once again reminded me what I felt and said early in the Republican primaries, namely that Carly Fiorina might just make the best president of all the candidates in the field. Carly is […]

Students at Indiana University-Bloomington recently went into panic mode at the sight of a Dominican friar, who they mistook for a Ku Klux Klan member. Funny? Yes, but also sad. It is a further sign of the state of our universities, and what is and isn’t being taught.For starters, let’s get this on the blackboard: […]

“Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. senators and congress members.” — Former President Jimmy Carter Op-Ed by Nick Bernabe (ANTIMEDIA) Denver, CO — The 2016 election has been a […]

Now that Ted Cruz has closed the gap between Donald Trump and himself, a lot of Trump supporters are starting to show signs of exasperation. Even Ann Coulter said, “I am a little testy with our man right now.” Regarding Trump’s retweet of Heidi Cruz’s unflattering picture, Coulter added, “This is the worst thing he’s […]

orchestration

A couple of weeks ago, in response to yet another question intended to sucker Donald Trump into an answer that the media could turn into more “proof” that he’s a fascist, racist, bigot, homophobe, Islamophobe, sexist … (yawn) … DT once again uttered the obvious, which is a surefire way to bring out the low-information […]

Now that the Republican debates are mercifully behind us, the media has their work cut out for them. They’re going to have to work doubly hard at their specialty — creating news out of thin air. There’s no question that they are very good at their craft, but it’s going to be an increasingly difficult […]

The Republican Party appears to be thrashing about like a wild beast in the final stages of its death throes. For those of us who are repulsed by politicians, political parties, and the odious political process, it’s quite entertaining to watch. (Before proceeding, it’s important to point out that what people think of as the […]

Glenn Beck

I’ve written about Glenn Beck’s painful demise many times over the years, even giving my readers an early heads-up that his days at Fox News were numbered. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” wrote 16th century playwright William Congreve. And he was right, because when it comes to Beck, I feel like a […]

Overconfidence is a killer. Arrogance is worse. People love humility and hate arrogance, yet arrogance has been on the rise at Fox News for years. What’s really sad is that one gets the impression that neither Sir Roger nor King Rupert have a clue. When I first discovered Fox News back in the late nineties, […]
