The media and political frenzy we’ve witnessed since the Charlottesville riots and death of Heather Heyer last Saturday has been as intense as anything in recent memory.

I’ve often used as a measure of frenzy the media reaction when Mitt Romney made a statement during the 2012 campaign criticizing the Obama administration’s...

A month ago I reported on a conversation I had with a lifelong Democrat who also was anti-Trump.

The conversation was remarkable because while the person still dislikes Trump, he was frustrated with how Democrats and particularly the media were trying to prevent Trump from doing his job, Media overplaying its anti-Trump hand...

The only state which still celebrates Victory Over Japan Day is my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

Except, we can’t call it Victory Over Japan Day. Because that is a microaggression against Japan, even though they did start the war and we are celebrating victory over Japan.

For the past 36 hours I’ve tried to gather my thoughts about the Charlottesville riots and killing of 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

Here goes, in no particular order.

Free Speech. The sight of neo-Nazis marching with torches was nauseating. But even Nazis are protected by the First Amendment. That’s why a federal judge declined...

After the Charlottesville riots and killing of a woman, the Google firing of James Damore seems like it took place years ago.

But it was just a week ago.

While Charlottesville will dominate the headlines and political debate in coming weeks, the Google firing of Damore retains its significance, as it reflects a...

Some interesting developments in the case of James Damore, the Google Senior Software Engineer who now is a former Google Senior Software Engineer. He was fired after Google reacted badly to Damore’s memo challenging explanations for the relative lack of women in software engineering.

So the Massachusetts 2018 Senate race now is on the radar. Can anyone beat Elizabeth Warren?

As reported months ago, Warren’s polling is weak, but let’s be serious here, it will be a monumental task for a Republican to defeat Warren. As in the race against Scott Brown, W...

Next Tuesday, August 15, is an Alabama Special Election primary for the Republican nomination to replace Jeff Sessions in the U.S. Senate.

Luther Strange was an interim appointment, and is running. Congressman Mo Brooks and “controversial” former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore also are running. Since whoever gets the Republican nomination...
