The Perversion of Politics

Charlie Rose. Matt Lauer. Harvey Weinstein. James Toback. Kevin Spacey. John Coyners. Al Franken: It seems that nearly every day this past month, a new perpetrator of sex crimes and/or sex abuser has been identified at a rate that mimics the replication of aggressive cancer cells. Dozens of victims have come forward of late, the majority having written “#MeToo” -inspired social media posts that detail personal accounts of having been victimized by powerful men, like those mentioned above. But perhaps almost, if not equally, as horrifying as it is to learn just how pervasive sexual harassment and/or rape is within...

Martyrs, Saints and Judas: The New Testament of the Democratic Party

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”–William Shakespeare It appears the truth is emerging from beneath the murky layers of the DNC-Hillary Clinton swamp. Recent revelations confirming that the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign paid millions though a law firm for the infamous “golden showers” dossier—the salacious piece best described as “creative writing” that consequently led to the wiretapping of President Trump and those in his circle–coupled with recently published excerpts of former DNC interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s new book, Hack, have all but confirmed that these Democratic bottom-feeders stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders,...

From Russia, Without Love: The Civil Suit Against the Trump Campaign and Roger Stone

“Seeking of the truth should not only be a part of the Justice Department and part of our judicial system, but also should be…a goal of reporters today.”–John Ensign   The name “Donald Trump” has become synonymous with the word “Russia.” Corporate media outlets have generated vast amounts of revenue by promoting a Russia narrative centered on President Trump and various members of his administration and inner circle over the past year. And the Democratic Party, still blind to the reasons for Hillary Clinton’s loss in the November 2016 election, continue to relish in MSM’s myopic focus on the same....

Is Veritas Worth the Price of Being Sued?

I “A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.” ― Oscar Wilde   “You know you’re flying over the target when they start shooting at you.” This is how Project Veritas’ email of June 2, 2017 begins. The statement, presumably in the words of its President, James O’Keefe, announces that Project Veritas, O’Keefe and others are being sued by Democracy Partners, LLC and Robert Creamer for damages in excess of $1 million dollars. The pending lawsuit arises out of a video wherein Creamer was allegedly caught “admitting” to partaking in a scheme to incite violence at Donald Trump...

Return of The Douchebag Diaries: Dead to Rights

“…and tied around the neck of the bottle was a paper label, with the words ‘DRINK ME’ beautifully printed on it in large letters. It was all very well to say ‘Drink me,’ but the wise little Alice was not going to do that in a hurry. ‘No, I’ll look first,’ she said, ‘and see whether it’s marked ‘poison’ or not’…”-Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland   About a year ago, I blogged about my undertakings in dating. Since then, my blog has been focused primarily on First Amendment issues, law and politics. While there is certainly plenty to write...

The UCB-Antifa Connection: Why a Public University Approves of Terrorists Attempting to Silence Free Speech

“Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime.”—Justice Potter Stewart   Hard to fathom that such wisdom was expressed in a Supreme Court decision relating to pornography dating back to 1966. In 2017, however, the same cement streets beneath and surrounding the campus renowned for being the “birthplace of the Free Speech Movement”–the University of California at Berkeley (UCB)–now serve as the foundation for which domestic terrorist groups such as Antifa and BAMN vociferously terrorize and brazenly assault anyone who expresses a dissenting point of view. Yet more disturbingly, these armies...

Trump Strikes Out Again in Court: The Battle to Regulate Sanctuary Cities

“Chaos was the law of nature; Order was the dream of man.”–Henry Adams   A U.S. District Court pitched another home run for liberals last week. At-bat this time around was a lawsuit filed by SF and Santa Clara counties, both having sought injunctive and declaratory relief from potentially losing their respective federal funding as sanctuary cities. Once again, President Trump has struck out against the liberal leaning jurisdiction with a district court judge’s ruling that hit him right in his sweet spot, stating that the administration cannot cease funding to sanctuary cities. And although the pertinent policy was not per...

No Safe Harbor: The Contingencies of Dating

  “You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” ― William Faulkner   Most of us live lives rife with contingency plans. The old adage “save for a rainy day”–the act of putting money aside for those to-be expected unexpected car repairs or planning for a retirement that in some cases is decades’ away and you might not be alive to use—isn’t merely limited to acquiring financial security. Contingencies, however, are arguably most apropos when discussing dating. Entropic and reactive, dating is a forum that exemplifies the best and worst of human behavior; an environment...

San Francisco Declares War on Trump’s Battle to End Sanctuary City Funding

“The constitution is either a superior paramount law, unchangeable by ordinary means, or it is on a level with ordinary legislative acts, alterable when the legislature shall please to alter it. It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. This is the very essence of judicial duty.”–John Marshall   Overlooked until recently by the recent Ninth Circuit rulings pertaining to President Trump’s “Muslim travel ban” is the City of San Francisco’s district court filing to protect its Sanctuary City status. Sacramento, Santa Clara and Richmond have recently filed similar suits seeking...

Abuse of Privilege: Mainstream Media’s Irresponsible Use of Classified Leaks

“A popular Government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy or perhaps both.”–James Madison   In 1971, The New York Times won a landmark lawsuit protecting its right to publish highly classified information pertaining to the government’s role in the Vietnam War that had been leaked to the publisher. The Times’ victory in the Pentagon Papers case would solidify one of the most crucial tenets of First Amendment law, permitting the media to publish any information of “material interest” to the public, notwithstanding how it was acquired or...
