Barr’s Senate Hearing Coverage: Mainstream Proves They are ‘Fake News’

Barr’s Senate Hearing Coverage: Mainstream Proves They are ‘Fake News’

by Phil Erwin If you have any doubts whether Trump’s politically-charged characterization of the “Mainstream” Media – “Fake News” – is accurate, you need wonder no more. This week’s loudest controversy concerned whether Attorney General William Barr’s 4-page memo highlighting key conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 400+ page report had accurately reflected the findings […]

The Mueller Aftermath

The Mueller Aftermath

by Phil Erwin The infamous, long-awaited, supposed-to-be game-changing “Mueller Report” is finally out. And the Democrats, who for more than 2 years screamed “Collusion!” are flummoxed. They had prayed incessantly to Mueller in the fervent hope that his report would be Trump’s undoing. But Mueller’s report says: “No Collusion!” Of course, we had many weeks’ […]

Spotlight on Fake News

Spotlight on Fake News

by Phil Erwin There is a movie entitled Spotlight which I stumbled into this week while channel-surfing. The cast includes some pretty heavy hitters – Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber. Terrific actors all. But this isn’t a blockbuster action flick, nor a grab-the-kleenex chick flick. Not a rom-com either – not a […]

Just What Is the “Deep State”?

Just What Is the “Deep State”?

  by Phil Erwin There is a phrase bandied about in politics lately which carries a connotation of secrecy, subterfuge, conspiracy – perhaps even “collusion.” The phrase is “Deep State,” and it suggests a shadow government within our representative government which acts to fulfill its own political ends, regardless of how those ends meet – […]

Mike Flynn: The Eyes of “Blind” Justice Are Upon You!

Mike Flynn: The Eyes of “Blind” Justice Are Upon You!

by Phil Erwin On Tuesday, once-vaunted Lt. General Michael Flynn is due to be sentenced by Judge Emmett Sullivan for lying to the FBI. Flynn was interviewed by FBI agents in the White House, where he was National Security Advisor for the fledgling Trump administration. Flynn had held the office for two days. He would […]

Is Illegal Immigration Un-American?

Is Illegal Immigration Un-American?

by Phil Erwin FOX’s Laura Ingraham hosted a townhall-format show in Arizona to get some honest perspective from voters in both parties. One young panelist, asked if Obama was right that sending troops to the border is just a “political stunt,” said: It is purely politics… We are the greatest country in the entire world, […]

Lioness of the Senate

Lioness of the Senate

By Phil Erwin In his later years, Ted Kennedy was known as the “Liberal Lion of the Senate.” He didn’t exactly live up to the respectability implied by that moniker. But Democrats so revered the Kennedys, they forgave Ted his disgraceful behavior at Chappaquiddick and kept right on re-electing him despite his well-known moral failings. […]

Kavanaugh Hearing: Job Interview, or Kangaroo Court?

Kavanaugh Hearing: Job Interview, or Kangaroo Court?

by Phil Erwin God, don’t you hate these Congressional hearings? First of all, much of the time, you can’t hear anything, because everybody’s interrupting everybody else! Completed sentences are pretty rare, outside of the reading of opening statements. And of course, it’s the interruptions that the Senators are mostly after. Because that’s how they turn […]

The Press: Friend or Foe of Freedom?

The Press:  Friend or Foe of Freedom?

  by Phil Erwin This Thursday, The Boston Globe has called upon all American newspapers to offer up editorials excoriating President Trump for his “attack on” their profession – specifically, his suggestion they may be an “enemy of the American people.” The Globe decries what they say is Trump’s “dirty war against the freedom of […]

Border Showdown | Save the Kids, or Save the Country?

Border Showdown | Save the Kids, or Save the Country?

by Phil Erwin The hot topic this week is the cold-hearted treatment of illegal-immigrant kids by the Trump administration. “Babies… torn from their parents’ arms!” was the oft-repeated TV-host phrase. And… “That is inconsistent with our our American values!” is the ubiquitous on-camera indictment by Democrats – all occasioned by furiously-shared photos of “kid in […]
