    Afghanistan, the graveyard of empires

    Afghanistan has long been called the “graveyard of empires." It is unclear who coined that disputable term. In truth, no great empires perished solely because of Afghanistan. Perhaps a better way to put it is that Afghanistan is the battleground of empires. Even without easily accessible...

    The aftermath of Trump's acquittal in his second impeachment trial

    The Republican Party has given a free pass to future Presidents for anything they might do in the closing days of their term of office. A former President incited an insurrection against our government during the closing days of his term of office. It doesn't get worse than that. The...

    A report card on the Biden administration

    President Joe R. Biden, how refreshing that sounds. What a refreshing day. Our divisive, erratic, foolish, conspiratorial, narcissistic President is gone, replaced by a President who deeply wants to unite us. Barring ill-advised preconceived notions about President Biden, his task should be...

    The ultimate in American shame!

    The American people have spoken, and Trump lost by over seven million votes. All 50 states have spoken by certifying their election results. The Electoral College which directly elects the President has spoken, and Biden won by a vote of 306 to 232. Finally, the Senate Republican leadership...

    Which President would you prefer?

    President Biden is putting together a foreign policy team with decades of experience. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/24/politics/biden-cabinet-nominees-event/index.html Biden said it was a team that will provide the intelligence he needs to hear, not the intelligence he wants to hear.

    Is Trump ordering a retreat ... again?

    We should all remember that Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to be our President, and he helped Trump a great deal in 2016. In terms of dividing America, Trump is doing more than any Russian agent from the FSB (Russian intelligence). Putin is enormously pleased with Trump's performance, not the least...

    What happened in the 2016 election will not happen in the 2020 election

    The circumstances surrounding the 2016 election are so peculiar, it is extremely unlikely they will be duplicated. In 2016, the Democratic Party chose the worst possible candidate. Clinton was unpopular, under FBI investigation, and was lugging around a ton of baggage. Trump still managed to...

    Did Trump really test positive for the coronavirus?

    "Oh! What A Tangled Web We Weave When First We Practice To Deceive" It is America's shame that our President has had so little regard for the truth that the American people learned a long time ago they could not trust anything he says. How do we know Trump tested positive for the...

    The national polls got it right in 2016

    Trump's followers would have us believe that Trump defied all the national polls and won the election. They could not be more wrong. In the first place, the national polls gauge the popular vote, not the Electoral College. In the second place, Trump lost the popular vote by three million...

    Fox News has an unenviable task

    Fox News, euphemistically called the Trump Network, has an unenviable task. It has taken on the daunting mission of supporting the most incompetent President in American history. In addition to being incompetent, Trump is encumbered with extreme paranoia and narcissism, in addition to lacking...

    Trump's bad week

    Trump has had countless bad weeks, including an impeachment and an impeachment trial in the Senate, but he may have set a record for foulness this past week. It pretty much seems like he can't do anything right. In an interview this past week, Trump said that the coronavirus was "fading away"...

    The NFL's Roger Goodell is opposed to racism ... theoretically

    Gee, really, Roger is opposed to racism and police brutality. Wow! Who would have believed it? However, like any good politician these days who are dealing with the protests, Goodell didn't say a damn thing. Well, what did he say? Here are the important parts. "We were wrong for not listening...

    Democrats, why do you want to reelect Trump?

    Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot! In cities across America they are urging in both signage and speech that police departments be defunded, although the lead Democrat, Joe Biden, is opposed to such a horrific idea. It is all well and good for protesting Democrats to make signs and...

    A report card on the Trump administration

    Some may think I am being presumptuous by evaluating the Trump Presidency. However, I beg to differ. As an American I have a perfect to judge my President. By the same token, others have a right to question my judgement. In fact, I encourage it. Trump is falsely given high marks on the...

    The odd nature of today's version of "Bil Hemmer Reports" on Fox News

    The odd nature of today's version of "Bill Hemmer Reports" on Fox News No one is surprised by the fact that Fox is a conservative network that openly supports President Trump. Theoretically, the Hemmer Report is a straight news hour with a conservative bent. However, today, Hemmer was very...
