Ronald Reagan at 100: Remembrances of a Giant among Men

2011 February 6

When my mother shook me awake, to not only let me know it was time for school, but to announce that Jimmy Carter had just been elected President of the United States, even at 15 years of age, I knew this was not good news for America.  It wasn’t that I was waiting breathlessly for Gerald Ford — who was?  But what captured my 15 year old emerging political and patriotic heart during the Republican primary was Ronald Reagan. read more…

The New York Times Has a Freudian Slip on Geert Wilders’ Victory

2010 June 12

One can always count on the New York Times to be biased and boringly predicable —  traits which have rendered it to be the one thing it must dread becoming: irrelevant.

The Times article on the recent Dutch elections does not disappoint.  Dutch elections would normally not garner even a back page passing reference, but when candidate Geert Wilders finishes a strong third place, doubling Party of Freedom parliamentary count to 24 seats, the world, and the Times, pays attention. read more…
