The responsibilities of social media

Adam Guillette:

Fifty years ago Spiro Agnew gave us a powerful warning. In Agnew’s famous Iowa speech known as “The Responsibilities of Television,” the vice president wanted Americans to be aware of the danger of power being concentrated “in the hands of a tiny, enclosed fraternity of privileged men elected by no one and enjoying a monopoly sanctioned and licensed by government.”

Character Makes a comeback

Chris Stigall:

As a dad it feels like it’s harder and harder to find examples of great character in popular culture.  Especially in the world of competitive sports where the headlines are mostly about kneeling during the National Anthem, siding with the Chinese government over Hong Kong for money, and hitting other players over the head with football helmets.

Negative political ads nothing new

Negative political ads nothing new

I know most of you are like me - glad the election of 2019 is over and complete. Most of us supported candidates – some won and some lost, but if we did our duty and voted, we were all winners.

Why the public hates the press

Every once in a while, some lefty journalist on social media whines about how the vast majority of the American public has no faith in their profession anymore. Inevitably, they blame President Trump for journalism being held in lower public esteem than a proctologist moonlighting as their chef during a latex shortage. But if journalists really want to know why the public views toenail fungus more favorably than them, all they need to do is find a reflective surface.

What if the Trump prophecies are true?

Michael Brown:

In a recent article, Christian journalist Stephen Strang cited prophecies delivered in 2007 by the late Kim Clement, which pointed to Donald Trump being a two-term president. Are these true prophecies? And if so, how should they influence our voting?

The sad, sad State of Virginia

Scott Morefield:

Ever since its citizens liked Ike in ‘52 (other than one brief hiccup in 1964 when Johnson trounced Goldwater almost everywhere), the Commonwealth of Virginia had voted reliably Republican, until 2008. That year, in a wave election, Democrat Barack Obama won several states Republicans typically win, like Florida, North Carolina and Arizona. One could have been forgiven, then, for thinking Virginia would come back to the fold after the hipness wore off and the cold, hard reality of quasi-socialist governance became all-too-real.

An amazing early U.S.A. statesman

An amazing early U.S.A. statesman

I think I may have used some of this information in a column before, but it is certainly worth repeating as we look at the quality and character of the candidates we have for president next year. One of our faithful readers and supporter, passed the information along to us again. We no longer have statesmen like Thomas Jefferson - we only have politicians. Jefferson’s insight was unbelievable.

The not-so-little lies of politicians

The not-so-little lies of politicians

William Marshall:

How many people know that Joe Biden has scurrilously defamed an innocent man in the death of Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and infant daughter, Naomi? This matters. It is not a small thing.
