The Nauseating Return of Malevolent Mitt

Posted on January 7, 2019 by Robert Ringer

It puzzles me why everyone is so shocked that Mitt Romney came out of the starting gate bashing President Trump.  Anyone who heard his infamous attack on then candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 Republican primaries should not have been surprised. In my article “A Final Word on the 2018 Midterms,” published the day before […]

The Capitalism and Freedom Connection

Americans are easy prey when it comes to being distracted by the political theater in Washington.  It is this attraction to non-issues (e.g., the so-called government shutdown) that prevents them from focusing on the issues that really matter. Of course, people’s ideas about what constitutes freedom can vary widely, depending upon whether they view the […]

The Dreaded Government Shutdown

The average low-information voter, who depends on getting his news from the FNM, is trembling in his shoes right now because the life-ending government shutdown he has heard so much about has finally arrived.  How in the world can the United States possibly survive such a calamity? But let’s get serious:  Every reasonably well-informed individual […]

Tucker Tells the Trump Truth

In an interview with a German newspaper, Tucker Carlson undoubtedly caused a lot of Trump supporters to flinch when he spoke frankly about what he sees as the president’s shortcomings.  Right out of the starting gate, he stated that he intensely dislikes Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Tucker is not alone on this one.  Those of […]

Combatting the Swamp Injustice System

As I’m sure you are aware, Chief Justice John Roberts, apparently campaigning for the title of swing vote on the Supreme Court, recently blurted out:  “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.  What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do […]

The Art of the Lie

lie

The lost decade of the sixties brought relativism up to a whole new level, as millions of young people were relieved to discover that lying is a perfectly acceptable alternative to truth telling.  The tone was set by Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, along with underlings like Robert McNamara, Henry Cabot Lodge, and […]

Have Republicans Learned Anything?

Okay, we made it through the midterms with no blue wave – not even close — but I’m still a bit disappointed by the results.  The House wasn’t a surprise, though I did believe that Republicans could pull out a victory. As to the Senate, I felt that Republicans had a good chance of picking […]

A Final Word on the 2018 Midterms

Here we are again, ground zero for another election.  But this time around there’s a different feeling in the air, a feeling that the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been before. Those who pay attention to politics see tomorrow’s midterms as a referendum on capitalism versus socialism, free speech versus political correctness, freedom of […]

Fake Caravans and Decision Time for America

People are often surprised when I tell them I believe in open borders … in theory, that is.  That’s right, the libertarian side of me believes that a person has a natural right to live wherever he pleases. Stop and think about that for a moment.  Why should a bunch of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats […]

Lessons from an Attempted Lynching

Posted on October 9, 2018 by Robert Ringer

At the risk of being politically incorrect, I have to take issue with the views that most people had of two women in the attempted lynching of Brett Kavanaugh.  Not because they’re women, but because they played such key roles in how things turned out. First is Susan Collins, whom many, including Sean Hannity, labeled […]
