UC Berkeley flunks a constitutional test

When thugs act to deprive a speaker and his audience of their right to political speech, they violate the First Amendment of the Constitution. When public institutions are given notice and fail to adequately respond to the assault, they also violate that right.

Such was the case last week at UC Berkeley, where a criminal gang of 150 masked anarchists joined a college protest and created chaos, damaged property and injured individuals.

‘SNL’ airs dark Kellyanne Conway sketch that went too far for some

Saturday Night Live is enjoying its strongest ratings in 22 years, but that success hasn’t come without some controversy, as a sketch in last night’s show mocking Trump aide Kellyanne Conway appears to illustrate.

SNL, known for its scathing portrayals of politicians on both sides of the aisle, has been criticized by many conservatives, including President Trump himself, for being “biased.”

Trump attack on judge hardly unprecedented. FDR, LBJ and Obama did the same

t’s tough to digest the outrage from reporters or politicians who claim something “never happened before in our history” when such statements lack any hint of historical perspective, any intellectual curiosity to discover if something truly is unprecedented.

It has become a common problem, this reacting in the arrogance of the moment rather than trying to understand how our system has worked for more than 200 years.

Illegal Alien Voter Convicted in Texas is Tip of the Iceberg

You won’t hear much about Rosa Maria Ortega after this week. Ortega is the Mexican alien who was caught illegally voting five times in American elections. Ortega is Bigfoot for those in the media, professors, and Democrats who tell us that “voter fraud is as rare as Bigfoot.”

Ghostwriter for Hillary Clinton, Carl Bernstein tells stories of betrayal in memoir

Barbara Feinman Todd’s new book is a nonfiction account of her years as a top political ghostwriter, but it features enough betrayal and intrigue to fuel a creditable thriller.

In “Pretend I’m Not Here,” Feinman Todd clashes with a famous investigative reporter and is “caught in and chewed up by the (Clinton) White House machine.” Bob Woodward and Hillary Clinton play important roles in this brisk memoir, and neither comes out looking very good.

Reports: CIA Denies Security Clearance For Top Flynn Aide

A top aide picked by National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was rejected for a critical security clearance, effectively ending the aide’s ability to serve in a position on the National Security Council, multiple outlets reported Saturday.

Robin Townley, Flynn’s pick for the NSC’s senior director for Africa, was denied for a “Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearance, unnamed sources told Politico and ABC News. Without that clearance, Townley cannot serve on the NSC post, according to the reports.

Quebec mosque shooting should be a wake-up call

It would be tempting to think the mass shooting at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec was an act of hatred conceived south of the border and born in Quebec City, but that would be a mistake.

This is a wonderful country. In the last election the majority of us voted for ‘sunny ways,’ and elected a Prime Minister who is devoted to diversity. The ham-fisted actions of the demagogues down south make him look all the better.

Data shows a downward demographic spiral for Republicans

Since taking the presidency by surprise back in November, the Republican Party has been salivating on the unexpected opportunity laying before them — control of the White House and both chambers of Congress.

Even with the oddly unconventional behavior of the newly elected President Trump for them to juggle, Republicans recognize a mostly unobstructed opportunity to do what they like for at least the next two years.

Trump’s 1990 Playboy interview perfectly lays out his view of the world

Ahead of the meeting, Japanese officials have reportedly been preparing by, among other things, reading Trump’s 1990 interview with Playboy Magazine, during which he rails against Japan on trade, according to the Wall Street Journal’s Jacob M. Schlesinger and Alastair Gale.

Although reading a quarter-century old article from Playboy in preparation for talks may at first seem to be somewhat unorthodox, in the interview Trump discusses many talking points about foreign policy and economics similar to those he pitched during his campaign for the White House.

IMF head: Trump good for US economy for now as trouble looms

The head of the International Monetary Fund said Sunday that U.S. President Donald Trump taking office is likely good for the American economy in the short term, though rising interest rates and a strengthening dollar will challenge global trade.

Christine Lagarde said Trump’s plans for additional investment in U.S. infrastructure and his likely tax reforms will boost America’s economic fortunes.
