The Selective-Condemnation Ruse

Posted on May 19, 2022 by Howard Roark


The Buffalo mass-murder rampage is a tragedy that has become all too familiar to Americans in recent years, and the fact that the shooter declared himself to be a white supremacist made a terrible situation even worse.  Heeding their mantra to never allow a crisis to go to waste, Democrats immediately pounced on this horrific […]

The Disappearance of Certitudes

Posted on April 20, 2022 by Howard Roark


Eric Hoffer, the longshoreman-philosopher who died in 1983, demonstrated an incredible prescience during his lifetime, which included this gem:  “There is a widespread feeling that our economic system and our civilization are nearing their end. … In the 1970s many people see life drained of meaning, and there is hardly a certitude left.” Given his […]

Fools and Their Follies

Posted on April 12, 2022 by Howard Roark


The Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi once wrote that even Jesus fled from the fool, saying, “I can make the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame run and raise the dead, but I cannot turn the fool away from his folly.”  His words are every bit as relevant today as they were 800 years ago, […]

The Joe/Kamala Dilemma

Posted on April 7, 2022 by Howard Roark


Back in January, I wrote an article conjecturing that Democrat power brokers would soon be letting Joe Biden know that it’s time for him to step aside.  The only reason they haven’t already done so is that they first have to find a way to get rid of Kringey Kamala. The question is, what can […]

Diverting from the Real Story

Posted on April 5, 2022 by Howard Roark


The way the media is now covering the Hunter Biden laptop story, you’d think it was breaking news.  But, of course, everyone — including those in the mainstream media who insisted for two years that it was nothing more than Russian disinformation — has known all along that the story was true. Nevertheless, no one […]

Hollywood Tough Guys

Posted on March 31, 2022 by Howard Roark

Chris Rock speaks onstage at the 94th Academy Awards held at Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center on March 27th, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

As I listen to media folks obsess over the “slap heard round the world” at the Oscars, my memory takes me back to a 1988 “60 Minutes” segment about jazz legend Miles Davis.  Davis’ ominous demeanor had interviewer Harry Reasoner squirming in his chair. There was, however, one thing Davis said during that interview that […]

Are Republicans Preparing to “Move on” Again?

Posted on February 10, 2022 by Howard Roark

Unless I missed it, I don’t recall any Republican in the House or Senate, not to mention any potential Republican presidential candidate or conservative media commentator, addressing two questions that I believe millions of Americans would like to have answered: If Republicans get back into power, what are they going to do about the millions […]
