Put a sock in it, Laura Bush

Laura Bush wrote a column condemning President Trump for "seperating" children from their mothers.

She was silent when Obama did it.

Her husband likely did it too.

Canadian discovers the truth about USA trade

Justin Trudeau is riding high on talk of a trade war with the United States.

But Daniel Tencer, Senior Business Editor for HuffPost Canada, has discovered the truth about trade relations with the United States.

The world needs us more than we need them.

Trump as a father figure

President Donald John Trump had a wonderful week that included two birthday cakes, one at the embassy in Singapore and another days later back home. Birthday cakes now are like scoops of ice cream. Trump gets two, everyone else gets one.

This is a tribute to his leadership, which is steeped in masculinity. This alarms many Westerners who for a half-century now have been indoctrinated into the Feminist Mistake that men and women are the same, interchangeable and equal.

Obstruction of justice is the new battle cry.

Democracy dies in darkness, and the Washington Post exists solely to cast shade. Its latest shady deal is to cast Bumbling Bobby Mueller's witch hunt as an "obstruction report." Revisionist journalism has erased the Russian dossier and allegations of President Trump hiring hookers to pee in Barack Obama's bed.

Obstruction of justice is the new battle cry.

Three years ago today, experts beclowned themselves.

Today marks the third anniversary of Donald John Trump descending down his golden elevator and into the presidential race. A victorious warrior, he won the battle and then waged the war. He had the right message -- "Make America Great Again" -- and the right battle plan in taking the battle for votes directly to the people, using the vast wealth of celebrity he built over the decades.

The press got him absolutely wrong.

The real diplomat

President Trump doesn't know diplomacy, the experts said. President Trump is too impulsive, they said.  President Trump doesn't understand Korea, they said.

But after President Trump closed the deal on Tuesday -- a deal ironed out over the last few months, perhaps longer -- they said he did not get enough.

After North Korea, Pakistan

President Trump's pacification of North Korea -- getting Kim Jong Un to denuclearize -- has a ripple effect.

In Pakistan.

A professional review of the IG report

I have the best readers. Physicists, engineers, medical doctors, and even a woman who worked with Jim Comey many years ago. Then there is my general...

So when a reader who has issued similar reports in corporate life took issue with my dismissal of the Inspector's General report on the Department of Justice (I want indictments), I was intrigued.

And now I post his remarks. Please note that his opinions are his alone and not those of his employer.

Trump ends EPA harassment of farmers

"Water, water everywhere, not a drop to regulate." -- the Rime of the Ancient Bureaucrat.

It was an odd photo that the Environmental Protection Agency released. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is seated at the Resolute Desk signing something while President Trump "looks on," as the cliche goes.

IG report? I want indictments

Thursday's release of the Inspector's General report on the FBI's mishandling of Hillary's email case opened a few wide eyes wider.

Apparently she set up her private server not to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests but to dispense State secrets in her donations-for-secrets scheme in which she raked hundreds of millions of dollars in emoluments from foreigners and foreign governments, money that was laundered through her Fake Charity.

There is your Russian collusion

Press discovers human rights

Mary Kissell, a member of the Wall Street Journal's once-esteemed editorial board, spent Wednesday afternoon looking for signs in the Asian newspapers that President Trump was duped in Singapore. She posted them on Twitter. It must be nice to make large piles of money for acting like a teenage girl trying to get back at that boy who ignored her in English class.

The rest of the press in America discovered human rights abuses in North Korea, something they had shunned earlier.

Barack is the next Pelosi

At the beginning of every horror flick, there is a moment when you want to scream to the heroine: don't go in there.

I wanted to shout the same thing to the 44th president when I read this headline, "Dems say Obama return from sidelines is overdue."

NYT knew its reporter slept with a source

Before she began work, the FBI tried to warn the New York Times about the problem it had in hiring Ali Watkins. The Times ignored the warning.

This month, the federal indictment of James Wolfe included an allegation that Wolfe, 58, passed classified information to Watkins, 26, when they were lovers.

Now that the public knows how the Times gets its scoops.

Look who is mad at DeNiro and the C-worder

"Anger isn’t a strategy," Frank Bruni of the New York Times wrote.

And with that he took on Robert De Niro and Samantha Bee (the woman who called Ivanka Trump the C-word).

Happy Flag Day and Birthday, Mister President

Happy Birthday Army, Too. You survived 3 1/2 years of Specialist Surber!

Summit chanted evening -- how to tell Trump did well

This is, and always has been an opinion blog. But allow me to slip in some objective reporting from USA Today.

"Trump, Kim handshake, talk of peace sinks U.S. defense stocks," the newspaper said in a headline.

Dancing FBI agent faces felony charge

Chase Bishop got drunk, lost his gun while dancing, pulled the trigger while picking it back up,and shot a man in the leg.

Now Bishop faces a charge of second-degree assault in Denver. It doesn't matter that he's an FBI agent.

Bush official: "Trump and Kim Have Just Walked Us Back From the Brink of War"

Victor Cha was the National Security Council director for Asia for President George W. Bush. Cha's parents are Korean, and one of his classmates at Columbia was Barack Obama. Cha's doctoral thesis was "Alignment despite antagonism: Japan and Korea as quasi-allies."

Cha is pleased with the Trump-Kim summit.

If California splits do we have to accept all 3 states?

Californians will vote in November on whether to divide into three states.

That's nice.

Do the rest of the states have to accept any of these three new states?.

NYT columnist attacks Trump for fulfilling his wish

Last fall, the New York Times sent columnist Nicholas Kristof and three others to North Korea. His October 5 column was ominous, "Inside North Korea, and Feeling the Drums of War."

Nuclear war is near, he warned, blaming Kim Jong Un and President Trump equally.
