“He’s President, Not a Pastor” Is a Great Cop Out

&

I was going to avoid the subject, but after reading this excellent piece from Jonah Goldberg, I think I do want to say one thing. Morality of the person matters. Dennis Prager is a brilliant man and he has been consistent, going back to Bill Clinton, that the morality of a leader does not matter. Adultery does not matter. The policies do. On that, I think he has been consistently wrong. The...

Firing Scott Pruitt Will Only Embolden the Left

F

It is an open secret in Washington that a leftwing opposition research firm has hired investigators to dig into Trump Administration officials. It is no coincidence that many of the accusations, like with former Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price, involve private air travel and the like. It is what these investigators focus on to give the media easy stories. There really is not much...

Your Podcast Sucks. Here’s How to Improve.

Y

Do me a favor and go listen to The Weekly Substandard for just a few minutes before going forward here. I listen to very few podcasts. It is one of the ones I listen to and listen to regularly. It is not a perfect podcast, but it is probably a million times better than yours. Here’s the thing — I’d like to find some good talent who, perhaps, could be a guest host on my radio...

This Sinclair Broadcasting Story Really Isn’t a Big Deal

T

Y’all, I was concerned when I first heard about the Sinclair Broadcasting promo. The whole “danger to our democracy” sounds like they’re using their network coverage to undermine legitimate news outlets and don’t care.

O

I have been gone for a week. I work on vacations. Work is what I do. I work to relax. But I also rested more than usual without working. I let emails slip by. I re-engaged Twitter by turning off notifications from people I don’t follow, which makes the whole thing more pleasant. But I also had a few moments of reflection. One of those moments came from Margaret Sullivan’s piece in the...

Cuomo vs. Cruz: And the Winner Is…

C

Say what you will about CNN, they’re certainly gluttons for punishment. After their media correspondent Brian Stelter got schooled by Ted Cruz yesterday for saying that the Texas senator was afraid to appear on the network to defend his views on gun control, you would think that they would think twice about poking that particular hornet’s nest again. Sadly, CNN anchorman Chris Cuomo...

NYT Writer Says His Children “Cannot” be Friends with White People

N

I was troubled to see an opinion piece in the New York Times over the weekend, the premise of which was to wonder whether or not he would recommend to his children that they could be friends with white people (spoiler alert: his conclusion was “no”). The reason? The election of Donald Trump, of course. The author, Ekow Yankah, lists behaviors, character traits, and policies of Trump’s which he...
