Not a Drop To Drink

Michigan once promoted itself as the Water Wonderland. Why not? The state borders four of the five Great lakes boasts 3,200 miles of coastline, more than 11,000 inland lakes and thousands of miles of rivers and streams. For those that love water, Michigan is about as good as it gets. At least it used to be. But even with water …

McCarthyism And The New York Times

I felt a full measure of disgust today while reading those applauding the New York Times for taking the unprecedented step of using an anonymous author who claims to be a Senior Official in the White House, to smear the President. It is truly unconscionable that the editors in charge of the Old Gray Lady believed they were serving a …

Anonymous Cowardice Of The New York Times

According to an anonymous author of a New York Times editorial President Trump is erratic, prone to anger and a clear and present danger to the Republic. His leadership style is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective. But don’t worry the author writes; along with other like-minded people inside the administration they are actively thwarting the President and his efforts at …

Journalism Murdered By TV

For more than a dozen years I worked as a television reporter, anchor and investigative reporter in various markets around the country. I began as a street reporter for an ABC affiliate in Bozeman, Montana. KCTZ Channel 7 served Gallatin County and Southwestern Montana for several years. It vanished not long after I left. I don’t think that is a …

The Midterms One Two Punch

Democrats and left wing pundits from the New York Times to CNN can spend the entire day talking about Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort or how offended they are by which flags are flying at half-mast and which ones aren’t. Here in the middle of America nobody cares. Trust me; in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Wisconsin all of the blathering …

McCain For Better Or Worse

I voted for John McCain just one time. I was never enamored with his middle of the road politics disguised as some kind of ‘Maverick’ effort against the inside-the- beltway crowd. After all at the time he was a four term Senator with all the perks and it was hard to buy his whole outsider pitch. He was an inside …

Mollie’s Life Matters

Mollie Tibbetts could have been anyone’s daughter. She certainly could have been mine and her senseless murder could have happened to any one of us. You know that and so do I but the tone-deaf liberal crowd in America cannot even fathom why ‘some girl in Iowa’ even matters. Let me explain. It matters because a college girl being chased …

Pundits, Polls and Pure Speculation

There are many-a-website to choose from to soothe the Democrats frayed nerves when it comes to realizing the so-called Blue Wave just isn’t materializing. Many will tell you if the election were held today the divide in the US Senate would remain the same at 51-49 in favor of the GOP. I can guarantee you that is simply not the …

Dem Problems Are Black And White

Democrats are still driving a wedge into Middle America and throwing gas on the flames of political division. The problem is they are alienating and dividing their own base and don’t even realize it. New York Governor and likely Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Cuomo stood on stage recently and proclaimed, “We are not going to make America great again, it …

A Word On Hypocrisy

Unprecedented has become one of those terms grossly overused by the national news media in its near breathless coverage of President Donald Trump and his administration. This week however its accurate not as it applies to the President; but rather the media itself. Scores of newspapers have agreed to make a pre-planned attack on the White House under the guise …
