Elon Musk observed that "brand is just a perception, and perception will match reality over time. Sometimes it will be ahead, other times it will be behind. But brand is simply a collective impression some have about a product." When Time Magazine reported the Davos elite had decided that America No Longer Matters, it is proper to ask ´what no longer mattered? The perception of America or the reality´?

This is an excellent article about the power of bureaucracy to undo liberty. There is an additional threat. I once asked my favorite professor what the lesson of Vietnam was, and he answered with one word:

"Media."

A war being won in the air and on the ground was lost by the American media. Leftists wanted an American defeat, and liberal journalists like Walter Cronkite made it their business to give it to them.

Everything that would be good for America is now held hostage to a narrative shaped by media corporations and celebrities raised on a premise of hostility toward our country.

The contemporary media wants to destroy the America that is and replace it with an America that would be unrecognizable to journalists like Teddy White and David Brinkley--men who loved their country.

The men who wrote our Constitution believed that freedom of the press was an essential bulwark of liberty. They could not have anticipated the power that modern media has to destroy liberty from within, nor would they have tolerated it.

CLEARWATER — At a recent City Council election debate, the first question pitched to the four candidates was: What is the biggest problem facing Clearwater right now? Seat 5 incumbent Hoyt Hamilton answered in code. "I’m willing to work with anybody, but they have to be open and honest in how they communicate and we haven’t always had that, so I think one of the biggest problems trying to move Clearwater forward is getting people to communicate openly and honestly with what we’re trying to do." Wait. Who is "they"? Which people are not being honest? Asked in a later interview if he was

The death by airstrike of a large number of Russian "mercenary troops" allegedly attacking a US backed position in Syria is reminder that hybrid/proxy/low-intensity conflict is not without risk. The New York Times described the scale of the incident. "Aleksandr Ionov, a Russian businessman working in Syria offering security and other services ... estimated after conversations with associates in several private military organizations that more than 200 Russians might have been killed. ... not all those killed were Russian: Some of the paid fighters came from other countries that were once part of the Soviet Union."

JACKSONVILLE, A woman has pleaded guilty to kidnapping an infant from a Florida hospital nearly 20 years ago. The plea agreement 52-year-old Gloria Williams accepted Monday in Jacksonville calls for a prison sentence of up to 22 years when she’s sentenced in May. Prosecutors said Williams kidnapped newborn Kamiyah Mobley from a Jacksonville hospital in 1998 and raised her in Walterboro, South Carolina. The victim is now 19 and named Alexis Manigo. The Florida Times-Union reports the young woman eventually met her birth parents, but continues to support the only woman she’s known as her mother.

Stealth Hillary ´2020 Comeback´

Shhhh! Hillary Clinton is stealthily running again in 2020. Spread it around very very quietly and be sure you only talk about the 2018 midterm elections. Washington Post reporter Robert Costa is sending the not so subtle signal that Hillary Clinton will be back again in 2020. However, since she has to do it on the sly, Costa portrays her as semi-secretly helping in select 2018 midterm campaigns. His focus is on 2018 but he reveals enough to let us know that it is really all about 2020 in Hillary Clinton, a favorite GOP foil, plans discreet 2018 strategy: "There was a

It is usually easier for an outsider to defend a person or a group that is attacked than for the person or group. In that vein, this Jew would like to defend evangelicals and other Christians who support President Donald Trump. They are regularly attacked as religious hypocrites who give Christianity in general, and evangelical Christianity in particular, a bad name. The people writing such things are often Christians, including evangelicals. Ross Douthat, New York Times columnist, wrote: "Whether the subject is the debauched pagan in the White House, the mall-haunted candidacy of Roy Moore or the larger question of

Special prosecutor counsel Bob Mueller has one significant scalp on the wall: that of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who pled guilty to one count of lying to the FBI and has yet to be sentenced. But, in a brilliant column, Byron York reviews the sequence of events as we have tortuously come to know them. Based on what we now know (or think we know), it is highly doubtful whether Flynn did anything wrong at all. It is a given that there was nothing wrong with Flynn’s talking to the Russian ambassador, or discussing sanctions with him. As the

This is simply fantastic news: "The Trump administration has adopted new limits on the use of ´guidance documents´Many of the Obama administration’s worst actions involved issuance of “guidance,” i.e., a left-wing interpretation of federal law that was often tendentious if not outright untenable. Nevertheless, most companies, universities, etc., were cowed into complying with Obama’s “guidances.” Glenn Reynolds offers the definitive commentary: Good. “Guidance” is bullshit. Either do a rule making, or stay home. Rule making under the Administrative Procedure Act requires following an actual process, with public comment and opportunity for appeal. Thus it is inconvenient for leftists. Issuing “guidance” is an inappropriate

WASHINGTON – Protesters at the recent People’s March on Washington against President Trump explained why they want to see the president removed from office. The official website for the protest stated, “We will take to the streets to demand the impeachment and removal of Donald Trump and to fight to protect the rights of all marginalized people, equal rights, social justice, our safety as citizens, and our democratic process.” Bethany from New York said Trump’s handling of climate change influenced her to attend the march and call for Trump’s impeachment. “I came because one of my biggest things is the climate change issues

It was a close call for Justin Trudeau. Three people, including a California Highway Patrol officer, were hospitalized after a car crash Friday evening that involved the motorcade of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, CBC reports. The incident took place outside Los Angeles when a black 2008 Toyota Highlander crashed into the officer, who was on motorcycle. The unnamed officer was reportedly thrown off his vehicle. Trudeau’s vehicle was not involved in the collision and he was not harmed, CBC reported. The officer sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries. The female driver of the black Highlander

The Associated Press reported a few minutes ago: “Trump won’t declassify Democratic memo on Russia probe.” The article doesn’t live up to the headline. (Snip) McGhan’s letter, which is entirely reasonable, is here. No doubt the Democrats’ memo will be released before long. What is most notable about the AP’s story is the pro-Democrat spin it applies to the facts. The president’s rejection of the Democratic memo is in contrast to his enthusiastic embrace of releasing the Republican document, which he pledged before reading to make public. The president declassified the document last week, allowing its publication in full. President Trump declassified

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”

The Prince of Wales appears to have made a dig at US president Donald Trump while speaking about the need to protect the world´s coral reefs from climate change. Trump once declared global warming as a ´hoax´ and withdrew the United States from the Paris climate change agreement almost as soon as he entered office. Speaking at an event held this morning in London, Prince Charles spoke about the urgent and pressing need to unite in order to protect the world´s coral reefs against the combined threats of climate change, pollution, plastic and over fishing.

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

President Trump has proposed replacing some food stamp grants with actual food. This has curiously enraged liberals, who you would think would be delighted to see "hungry" people getting food.The Trump administration is proposing a major shake-up in one of the country´s most important "safety net" programs, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps. Under the proposal, most SNAP recipients would lose much of their ability to choose the food they buy with their SNAP benefits.But if you like your supermarket, you can keep your supermarket, right? Under the proposal, which was announced Monday, low-income Americans who receive

I´m gonna go out on a limb here: I generally like the Obama official portrait. It´s an odd style, but it expresses him and what´s more, it reflects the art of his era. (snip) Here´s the problem: It´s not drawn very well. The work shows a lack of skill in the basic rendering of an image. The hands are out of proportion in size, even placed in the foreground, overly big. One might be able to write that off as intentional. But the front hand itself has problems in construction, at least if the aim is to create a realistic

(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance. Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

BREAKING: Senator Adam Schiff will not be making any revisions to the Democratic memo Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so. “We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff told reporters. “The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff added.
