Can we have one?

When Barack Obama was elected President, many of us were looking forward to that honest conversation about Race that we had needed for so long. Did we have it, because I don’t remember it, and based on what’s happening today, lots of people don’t either.

The media is supposed to speak truth to power. But what happens when they instead speak slander to a teenager? The answer is that is costs half a billion dollars. And counting.

There are a number of political angles to the Coronavirus, and I think many lessons to be learned. Let’s hope people are listening.

Reporter Without Borders has found an incredibly clever way to distribute the works of journalists who have been censored by their own governments. It involves the game of Minecraft. Really!

BE LESS CHIKIN

Chick-fil-A gives away a lot of its profits to charities. Recently, they made an announcement that seems like it was trying to appease those who protest it. I’ll explain my thoughts.

Getting sued for $2 million for exposing the truth is bad enough. Losing your case is worse.

The British Universities and College Union has decided to drop objective truth. If you are lily white and say you’re black, you won’t get an argument from them. We’re losing objective truth in academia.

Whistleblower hits close to home?

The whistleblower has been fired! That darn Donald Trump; how could he? No, not that whistleblower. This one was fired by those protecting the identity and job of the other one. Ironic.

If the Senate has to take up the impeachment trial this year or early next, this could cause an awkward situation for some Democrats running for President.

Richard Dawkins, noted atheist, is changing his mind about Christianity, or at least about how the idea of a belief in God changes behavior. He’s not converting, but he’s seeing how the lack of such belief (that is, how human nature on its own) doesn’t seem to work as well.

The 6-year-old and the cricket

A funny Facebook post from a friend of mine shows the similarities between what a 6-year-old does with crickets and what our government does.

A college student looking for beer money comes into a windfall and does the right thing with it. One reporter decides to smear him. The results say more about the reporter and today’s Cancel Culture(tm) than it does about the college student.

Episode 267: The Smearing of Brett Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh being smeared again

There they go again. Democrats are ready to declare Brett Kavanaugh guilt over one more unproven allegation. We have a judicial doctrine in this country; innocent until proven guilty. The Left have decided to dispense with it yet again.

Instead, it’s all about politics. Listen in to this episode which is slightly-more-than 10 minutes or less.

Anti-fascists?

The state of California is asking that pastors, educators, legislators, and just about everyone else, to affirm homosexuality and transgenderism. It’s asking politely now, but is this just the start? And how, in the name of the First Amendment, is this even a thing anyway?

Antifa, that wonderful organization that opposes fascism (hey, it’s in the name, right), uses fascist tactics to physically beat up journalists covering them. But the media want to give them a pass. Hey, nobody’s perfect, right Don Lemon?

OPEC looks like it will try to drive up the price of oil, but we may not feel it quite as much here in America. I’ll tell you why. (Thank you, Sarah Palin!)

Still drinking the Kool-Aid?

This time out I’m talking about the release of Attorney General Bob Barr’s summary of the Mueller Report, what it says, and who lost the most with its release.

Winners:

  • On collusion: Trump.
  • On obstruction of justice: Toss-up

Losers:

  • On assurances that Trump was about to be impeached Real Soon Now: The left-leaning media, pundits, and politicos.

Listen in for my analysis of Barr’s summary.

And speaking of the media:

Listener Mark has a better suggestion than the REINS Act for reducing the tentacles of the bureaucratic state; scrap it.
