George W. Bush Too Nice to be a Good President

President George H.W. Bush was a nice man. In fact, he was much too nice to be a good president.

Bush was no conservative.  We knew that before he was elected.  However after watching him capitulate to Democrats again and again,  I asked someone who knew him well if the Democrats had something on him or did he simply desire to be liked by them.  His friend’s voice fell as he confirmed it was the latter.

I do not begrudge the honors our 41st president has received following his death.  The office should be respected and these things are befitting anyone who has held the office of head of state of this great country.  I also feel for his family as they mourn the loss of a beloved father and grandfather. 

I do, however, resent the attempt to reinvent the man as a great president.  He was not even adequate.  If anything, he torpedoed much of the good that began under Ronald Reagan and is responsible for many terrible things that live on.

The Self-Destruction of the Self-Righteous

It is rare to see three overrated, self-righteous, liberal divas fall from their vaulted platforms in the same week but in a short 36-hour span, Sunday morning to Monday afternoon, we witnessed such a trifecta.

I’ll take the easy one first:  Stormy Daniels suing for defamation is a little like a skunk complaining of a bad smell.  Seriously, how can someone defame this “porn star”?  Her reputation was already in the toilet.  Furthermore, calling someone who has explicit sex in front of a camera for money a “star” is defaming the celestial lights in the heavens.

The media also should be called out for continually referring to her alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump 12 years ago as an “affair.”  By her own account there was only one illicit meeting between the two.   A one-off tryst lasting no more than a couple of hours is really stretching it.    Continue reading “The Self-Destruction of the Self-Righteous”

Poor, Pitiful Omarosa

Quick: What is the Office of Public Liaison in the White House?   Chances are you’d never even heard of it before the drama queen; poor, pitiful Omarosa Manigault-Newman; got fired?

Still mystified as to what it does?  More than likely.

So just how important was this special assistant to the president who was the communications director for that office?

Not very.  That’s why the position remains unfilled even though poor, pitiful Omarosa was fired a full eight months ago.

For the record, this office was created to help the White House reach out to various special interest groups.  It arranges tours, staff briefings and other little perks to curry favor with the heads of these organizations in order to make them feel important and urge their various members to support the president’s agenda (my definition not the official one) by leaning on their representatives in Congress and by drumming up support among the general public.

It’s the closest thing to a political arm.  However it’s all legal and above-board and has been around since Gerald Ford made it an official part of the White House in 1976.

Is it necessary for the country?  No. Continue reading “Poor, Pitiful Omarosa”

Needed: A New Trump Advisor

“Through a multitude of counselors there is safety”  Proverbs 11:14

Every president has a multitude of counselors: national security, economic, health, environment, etc.  Some serve officially.  Others are at his beck and call.  This president, however, is sorely in need of one more — a linguistic counselor.

There was a time when a person’s dollar earning power could be measured by a simple vocabulary test.  The theory being that a large vocabulary is a good indication of a person’s level of education — the more you know, the higher your earning potential.  Certainly, that is no longer the case as our schools have been dumbed down and a good vocabulary is no longer valued.   Continue reading “Needed: A New Trump Advisor”

The President, the Porn Star, the News Media and the Electorate

Did the president have a brief affair with a porn star in 2006?  I’m sure no one would be surprised to discover that he did.  Will 60 Minutes run an interview with Stormy Daniels?  If so what can it possibly tell us that we don’t already know?  Daniels is a whore who sees herself as a “star” and wants to publicize her experience with Trump to polish that star and increase her income.

No, she doesn’t turn tricks for money.  The definition of a whore is someone who engages in sex for money. Daniels has explicit sex in front of the cameras for money.  That makes her a super whore.  Furthermore, she directs others who do the same, not exactly a candidate for sainthood.   Continue reading “The President, the Porn Star, the News Media and the Electorate”

Fake News

Media bias is a fact of life.  Discerning citizens who regularly read newspapers or watch a nightly newscast have noticed a distinct slant to the left that gets more extreme with each passing year.  Polls showing the preferences and voting patterns of journalists show it, and a number of peer reviewed studies confirm it.  While most Americans identify as moderate to conservative, the news media is decidedly liberal.

The question I am asked quite often is, “Why?”  Continue reading “Fake News”

Blue Bloods Has People of Faith Seeing Red

Like many Christians, I have looked forward to each new episode of the Blue Bloods television show.  It is in its 5th season and attracts more viewers than any other primetime drama on Friday night.

It follows the Reagan family of police officers with the New York City Police Department. Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck, is the police commissioner.  The show has been refreshing in that the Reagan family’s Catholic faith has been front and center in every episode, with no apologies.

Though each family member is presented as flawed, as we all are, they all try to do the right thing.  When they stray, they get back on track as they live out their faith — until recently. Continue reading “Blue Bloods Has People of Faith Seeing Red”
