Why Trump is winning

Article Image Alt Text

By: Wayne Allyn Root

I received wonderful news Monday. Talkers magazine -- the Bible of America’s radio industry -- named me to their Heavy Hundred list of the top 100 talk radio hosts in the United States. I made my debut at No. 62. And of course, No. 1 in Las Vegas.

Clothesline: news source in old days

Article Image Alt Text

I received an email recently that got me to thinking about my mother’s clothesline. The email was titled “Remembering Mom’s Clothesline” and I am sure my older readers will recall with a smile on their faces the days of the clothesline.

When I was growing up, the clothesline was not an option – it was a necessity. Very few families could afford a clothes drier, so everyone depended on the outdoor clothesline to get their clothes dry.

The Democrats and the blue dress

Paul Curry:

Democrats have never seemed to hold Trump’s intelligence in particularly high esteem. I believe their regard for the Trump campaign team is, shall we say, less enthusiastic. Therefore, I have had a considerably difficult time trying to discern the Democrats repeated, constant, deafening drumbeat of “Russian COLLUSION!” these past two-and-a-half years.

‘The Longest Day’ - revisited

In my capacity as a certified, government-inspected old coot, I have taken particular interest in the bubbling excitement over the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It takes me back -- not to D-Day itself, when I was in knee pants, but to the 18th anniversary thereof in 1962. Darryl Zanuck’s “The Longest Day” brought to stirring cinematic life on that occasion Cornelius Ryan’s D-Day book of the same title.

I still find great satisfaction in Zanuck’s film, but here’s what I remember about 1962. We -- well, a lot of us -- who went to see it wore coat and tie or heels. It seemed the thing to do. As the house lights went down, the sound system roused us with “The Star-Spangled Banner” -- the real one, with trumpets and drums and no swaying hyper-inflected nightclub singers. We in the house rose as one, with hands over hearts. Many sang. It was a big deal, in keeping with the occasion celebrated and the sacrifice required to liberate Europe from evil.

Oppose gun control, be called unpatriotic

A lot of talk has been heard from politicians and citizens of this country about gun control, both pros and cons. However, a recent interview on CNN, Dan Rather said those who oppose gun control are being somehow unpatriotic.

I don’t think so. I agree with Tom Knighton, who wrote the following in a recent column:

“As a pro-gun voice, I’ve been called a great many things by anti-gunners. Few of them complimentary, and none intentionally complimentary. That’s par for the course, though, and most gun rights supporters have similar stories.

One thing I don’t think I’ve ever been accused of is being anti-American.

However, leave it to Dan Rather to argue that those who oppose gun control are being somehow unpatriotic.

Mark Levin takes on the press

Article Image Alt Text

Brent Bozell and Tim Graham:

Best-selling author and talk radio star Mark Levin has another terrific new book that debuted at No. 1 on the charts. The media habitually ignore Levin’s books -- no New York Times reviews, no TV interviews, nothing -- and it must drive them insane that he still sells millions of copies. But this one’s called “Unfreedom of the Press,” and it’s a direct shot at them, so some may find it impossible to resist a response. One has already responded and in so doing explains why Levin chose to unload on his profession.

The left’s battle against ‘inequality’

Larry Elder:

In his book “Discrimination and Disparities,” economist Thomas Sowell notes that a disproportionate percentage of firstborn siblings become National Merit scholars compared to siblings born later, presumably because the first-born starts life with no sibling competition for parental attention.

More than one song; almond milk issue??

Article Image Alt Text

The Country Editor

 

A dear reader handed me two items from a daily newspaper the other day and asked, “Don’t our legislators have more important matters to take care of than these?”

One of the items concerned a burning issue hanging in the balance during the legislative session, on whether Hank William’s “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)” should be declared the official state song.

Summertime fun very different today

Schools in LaSalle Parish ended last Friday and students started their almost three-month summer vacation. But summertime fun is very different today than in the past.

I think our children today have lost a lot by not being taught how to “really enjoy” their summer vacation – the way we did when I was a kid. Or, am I just living in the past?

When I was growing up and school let out for the summer, we couldn’t wait to get to the nearest fishing hole, build log trucks from old pieces of wood using jar lids as wheels, making roads in the dirt, building hide-outs in the woods near our home.

These people are nuts

By: Derek Hunter

It never ceases to amaze me just how disconnected from reality some liberals are. They fight tooth and nail for something or on some point, win, then a few years later, when circumstances have changed, they fight for the exact opposite thing like their original victory never occurred. They insist they are the “party of science,” and demand anything decreed by people in lab coats be adhered to, then deny the most basic elements of biology. It’s beyond hypocrisy, it’s insanity.

After a pro-life bill was passed in Alabama, the left lost their collective mind. Beyond calling for “sex strikes” and other temper tantrums, many insisted federal law trumps state law. It does, or at least it did.

Thanks to liberal governors and mayors across the country, states and localities no longer have to adhere to, and actively flout, federal laws they disagree with. Illegal aliens are not only protected by these politicians, they’re catered to.
