McRaven is No Admiral of Mine

By Jim ONeill

McRaven is No Admiral of Mine,
It is traditional to often address former military officers, especially those of high rank, by their former grade—colonel, general, commander, admiral, etc. But I will make an exception with William McRaven, who is not worthy of his former title of admiral in my book.

Trusting the Untrustworthy

By Linda Goudsmit

Trusting the Untrustworthy
Sir Alexander Fraser Tytler (1747-1813), a Scottish jurist and historian, provides an explanation for why great societies do not survive for more than 200 years:

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship (bondage).”

Fix Real Infrastructure, Dump Green Grandstanding

Fix Real Infrastructure, Dump Green Grandstanding
Here are two messages for Canberra:

Firstly, Australia does not have a problem with too much carbon dioxide going to the sky – we have a problem storing enough of the water coming from the sky.

Secondly, Australia does not have a shortage of wind and solar “farms” - we have a shortage of water, stock feed and low-cost electricity on real farms.

Distrust of Police Growing in Canada

Distrust of Police Growing in Canada
No, it’s not the progressives. Many on the left are true cop-haters from the get go. A prime example of how the left detest police (unless they become victims of a crime and squeal like the cowards they are) occurred during the recent Ontario election campaign. Gurrant Singh, brother of federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, was a star candidate for the NDP. It was revealed he once carried a sign in a demonstration that read “F**K the POLICE.” Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath saw nothing wrong with that. Neither did the rest of her radical caucus.

Misleading Security Clearance Revocation Story

 Misleading Security Clearance Revocation Story
I don’t normally watch the alphabet networks or liberal left media outlets.  While up north in Oregon, however, a person I am visiting is fond of NBC.  During a commercial earlier in the day, yesterday, advertising the upcoming episode of the network’s NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, the host looked me in the eye through the camera lens and my television screen and said, “The president is revoking security clearances of government officials who criticize him.”

Coordinated Anti-Trump Editorial Day and Only Dogs are Barking

By Judi McLeod

Coordinated Anti-Trump Editorial Day and Only Dogs are Barking
D-Day for the 340-something newspapers who took up the Boston Globe’s lead to publish anti-Trump editorials on their largely ignored-by-the-public editorial pages, and only Rex Huppke’s dog over at the Chicago Tribune is getting to lap up any attention.

Newspaper Industry Seeks Character Assassination of President As Antifa Wants to Kill Him

By Judi McLeod

Without ever blinking a jaundiced eye, 100 newspapers will follow the Boston Globe’s directive on Thursday with a collective hit job on President Donald Trump.

Newspaper Industry Seeks Character Assassination of President As Antifa Wants to Kill Him
At press time, not a single newspaper had stepped forward to state that this is proof positive that there is no such thing as an objective free press; that what the Boston Globe is calling for is nothing less than a coordinated hate attack.
