Lovable rogue, former Mayor of Providence

RIP Buddy Cianci

Former Providence Mayor Vicent “Buddy” Cianci, Jr. has died, The Providence Journal reports. He was a lovable rogue, but definitely a rogue. He transformed Providence from a washed-out industrial blight to the jewel of New England. He was larger than life, and came to epitomize both the power and excesses of personality. My prior…

We have covered the antics of Students for Justice in Palestine, and similar anti-Israel groups, many times, including pervasive efforts to shut down opposing pro-Israel viewpoints. The latest example is at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where SJP is objecting to and planning to protest the joint appearance of actor Michael Douglas and…

I have been enjoying Legal Insurrection’s “Conservative Case For” series very much, with posts highlighting Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. And while I can’t really make the conservative case for any of the current crop of Democratic nominees, I thought this might be a golden opportunity to share a deep concern I have…

Enough has been written about how Donald Trump is breaking or rewriting or ignoring all the rules. Or operating in 3 dimensions while everyone else is operating in 2 dimensions. I see something in Trump, though, that is very familiar to me. It’s the concept of creating chaos in your opponent’s house…

Defense Plan: Questioning Hillary’s honesty is sexist

Posted by
1/27/2016 at 5:00pm
Hillary has an honesty perception problem, and everyone knows it. That problem surfaced at the CNN Democratic Town Hall the other night, when a young man in the audience questioned Hillary about it: Hey, remember when speaking truth to power was a supposedly liberal ideal? Not in 2016 America. To Joan Walsh, well-known liberal writer…

What if Assad were overthrown?

Posted by
1/27/2016 at 1:25pm
“Getting rid of Assad” often comes up as a throw away line in political discourse, particularly during Republican presidential debates. Overthrowing or replacing Bashar al Assad would be easy enough, the U.S. has deposed and replaced plenty of tyrants in its day, but seldom does anyone discuss what would happen in…

Mike Huckabee’s most unusual closing video pitch to Iowa

Posted by

This is one of the more unusual campaign closing statements. Mike Huckabee in the past has had the pulse of Iowa. But he’s been relegated to the undercard debates recently. So here is a rather “interesting” closing video. It focuses more on the Democrats than his Republican competitors. [Apparently singer Adele objected to the…

Ted Cruz is intelligent, articulate, and well-prepared to defend and protect the Constitution as the next president of the United States.  He entered the national spotlight during his contentious 2012 run for the Senate, but it’s worth taking a look at his resume because it highlights long-standing and staunch support of…

The dispute between Donald Trump and Fox News has escalated rapidly today. It went from Trump was thinking about refusing to appear, to Trump likely not appearing, to the campaign saying Trump “definitely” would not appear.

While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had many well-known speeches and quotes, I think it’s fair to say that his “I Have a Dream” speech is his most famous. And in that most famous speech, the following line may be the most famous: I have a dream that my four little children will…
