• Yes, President Trump Will Win Re-election

    New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman today asked a rhetorical question: Trump’s Going to Get Re-elected, Isn’t He?

  • Dottie Bailey for state rep in District 110

    A classic Tea Party vs. RINO battle is taking place in a safely Republican state representative district in southwest St. Louis County (mostly Eureka and parts of Pacific and Wildwood). It’s a battle for the soul of the Republican Party that demands your attention, even if, like me, you don’t live anywhere near the district. […]

  • Missouri Crimes

    Scott Faughn’s name came up in conversation last week. “What’s this Faughn guy’s role in the Greitens’ investigation?” someone asked. Faughn is the publisher of Missouri Times and a former mayor of Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Papers call him a “power broker.” Others call him the “Candy Man.” I didn’t understand the question. “Not sure,” I …

  • Party Thursday!

    A great State Rep decides to give up his seat. The seat previously held by the Speaker of the House and a conservative legend. A seat in, perhaps, the most reliably conservative House district in St. Louis County. Now, there’s a battle for that seat. A battle between a left-leaning Establishment Republican and a grassroots …

  • Eric Greitens in His Own Words

    My blog includes links to related posts at the bottom of every individual post page. I usually don’t pay much attention, but today I noticed something.

  • What Happens When a Political Junky Unplugs?

    I gave up news for Lent.    I also stayed away from blogging. I’m trying to have fewer opinions about fewer things. When you have a lot of opinions about a lot of things, nothing is more important than anything else. But that’s ridiculous. Some things are more important than others. Some questions must be […]

  • I’m 100% with Governor Greitens

    Nothing has shaken my support for Eric Greitens. People ask me if I’m sorry I supported him. Are you kidding? Governor Greitens signed Right to Work. Something I’ve supported since it first appeared in the 1970s. Governor Greitens strengthened Missouri’s strong Right to Life policies. Governor Greitens is rebuilding Missouri jobs and wages. Governor Greitens […]

  • Looking ahead to season four of Trump: The President

    Scott Adams first identified Donald Trump’s greatest strength. What do you think that might be? It’s not his money or his business experience. Those are strengths, sure, but they’re not THE strength. Scott Adams believes Trump’s campaign was a movie script. Here’s what Adams wrote way, way back when Trump’s candidacy was still just a […]

  • 2018: The beginning of the end of the Fourth Turning in America

    Regardless of its ideology, that new leadership will assert public authority and demand private sacrifice. Where leaders had once been inclined to alleviate societal pressures, they will now aggravate them to command the nation’s attention. —William Strauss and Neil Howe: The Fourth Turning: What the Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous with […]

  • 2018 will change American culture at its core

    If you’re wondering how things will change in 2018, you might think back the mid-1980s. In the 1980s, leftist professors, leftist news media, and leftist entertainers were angry. For years, they’d preached that Ronald Reagan was a neo-Nazi buffoon whose incompetence and malice would destroy America. Maybe even wipe out the human species. “I believe […]
