Bridging The Gap
Civil is nice, but winning elections is better. Civil is nice, but winning elections is better.
Everybody wants to go to heaven, the wise man observed, but nobody wants to die. It’s not a puzzlement. Everybody wants kind and gentle in our politics, but nobody wants to risk losing an election. That’s not such a puzzlement, either. The passing of George Herbert Walker Bush, a genuinely decent, kind and polite man, has caught the country up in a frenzy of good feelings, and some kind, gentle...

Wayne Stayskal, cartoonist extraordinaire. Wayne Stayskal, cartoonist extraordinaire.
Google “Great American Political Cartoonists” and you will undoubtedly find the late Herbert Block (aka “Herblock”) of The Washington Post, (Paul) Conrad of the Los Angeles Times, Michael Ramirez of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and several other cartoonists whose work, if not their names, are familiar to newspaper readers. One name that will take more than a cursory search to find is Wayne Stay...

Republican senators will work through New Year’s Eve to confirm all of President Trump’s pending judicial nominees before the end of the year if Democrats try to obstruct the confirmation votes, Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said Wednesday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, has made remaking the federal bench with a conservative bent a priority, and has more than 40 judi...

The drive to expand NATO is insanity. The drive to expand NATO is insanity.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created in the late 1940s to confront Soviet communist expansion in Europe and to protect Western civilization and freedom. NATO today, of course, has become something else entirely. So I am going to ask the really difficult question: Why is the NATO alliance still expanding? Stop it. This is insanity. The American public elected Donald Trump in ...

Clinton, Obama, Soros and CNN mailings mark trail to civil war. Clinton, Obama, Soros and CNN mailings mark trail to civil war.
Federal authorities are investigating suspicious packages that were just sent to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — and this is news that comes the same week it was reported a suspicious package containing a suspected bomb was sent to the residence of George Soros. CNN’s New York offices were cleared by authorities, as well, after a suspicious package was reportedly mailed to that studio. And s...

The fading blue wave. The fading blue wave.
Elections rarely live up to the hype. Reporters and pundits in hot pursuit of clickbait had barely begun recovering from the 2016 election before they began confidently predicting a comeuppance for Donald Trump in the midterm congressional elections. For months — indeed, more than a year — there’s been talk of a “blue wave” that will inevitably inundate Republicans. They’re still predicting it,...

The media's shameful coverage of Central American 'caravan'. The media's shameful coverage of Central American 'caravan'.
Journalism best serves the public when reporters deliver news and information on important stories that are relevant to the lives of their viewers and readers. Television journalism soars when reporters find a way to answer the questions viewers are asking their TV screens while watching coverage of a major event. That’s why it was maddening and frustrating to watch this past week’s coverage of...

Never letting the outrage go to waste. Never letting the outrage go to waste.
The Washington bombers seem to be a curious collection of political partisans, music critics and aspiring killers. If any of their pipe bombs and other explosive devices actually explode and kill someone, first-degree murder charges can be added to their crimes. If convicted by an eager jury, they should expect no mercy. They’re not very skilled as bomb makers, for which everyone, liberal or co...

Trump's foreign policy reset. Trump's foreign policy reset.
The release of Pastor Andrew Brunson and his return home to the United States was an answer to the prayers of millions and the result of an administration that has reset our foreign policy by fearlessly engaging on issues that other administrations only talked about addressing. Some might be hesitant to use the term reset as it pertains to U.S. foreign policy, but that is what the Trump adminis...
