I guess Donald Trump was tight

At his big rallies last fall President Trump kept telling his supporters that, “We’re just going to win and win so much you’re going to get tired of winning.”
No one ever gets tired of winning, especially a rookie politician that everyone in the establishment predicted would be a loser.
But after what happened on Tuesday night in special congressional elections in Georgia and South Carolina, I’m beginning to think the Democrats are never going to get tired of losing.

The double murder of Otto Warmbier

We may never know what brutal torture and malign neglect American student Otto Warmbier suffered at the hands of North Korea’s dictatorship before losing his life this week at the age of 22.
But it wasn’t the first time the free-spirited Ohio native died.
More than a year before succumbing to the unknown illness or injury that left him in a coma thousands of miles away from home, Otto Warmbier’s own countrymen murdered his reputation. His character. His humanity.

From cliches to abuse of journalistic style

I can’t stop myself from keeping a mental list of words and phrases that have been bastardized beyond repair by journalists. They range from the trite, such as “Breaking News,” to the abused, such as “anonymous sources.”
For TV journalists they include crutch phrases such as “at the end of the day.” The next time a cable pundit suggests “there’s no there there,” switch the channel - although, frankly, on cable “it is what it is.”

Put the blame on the Trump haters

It’s impossible to argue with Rush Limbaugh.
When Rush said the nut job who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others at a D.C. baseball field on Wednesday was radicalized by the leftwing establishment media, he’s absolutely correct.
Everyone in Washington has been urging us not get into a political blame-game like the ones that followed the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Gifford in 2011 or the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
Pardon my French, but “BS” on that.

A congressman and killings in New Orleans

A New Orleans congressman tragically was shot while he was out playing baseball. Luckily, it looks like he will fully recover. Some of those who first heard the news assumed that he had been shot in New Orleans. You see, killings have become a way of life in the Crescent City.
The Queen City of the South is under siege.  No, not from hurricanes. This time, the siege is from within. New Orleans is known as the city that care forgot.  But it’s been hard to let the good times roll in the Big Easy when the dice keep coming up snake eyes.
