Once Lost, Liberal Journalists’ Mission Suddenly Found in Time of Trump

John Kass, Journalists “find a renewed sense of mission,” reports The New York Times. That’s nice. There is some truth to this. And it’s not fake news. With the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, journalism, in a typical pattern of self-congratulatory excess, has dusted off an old cliche to announce that it is

Democrats should support Scalia-like nominee to Supreme Court

John Kass, Is it possible — perhaps even likely — that terrified liberals and Democrats are right about President Donald Trump? Yes. I want to be fair here. It’s quite possible they are right. Trump’s politics and policies frighten them, but also his personality, even his facial expressions. And so the smell of burning Democratic

Trump, the Media and a Cure for Hysteria

John Kass, Before Donald Trump establishes himself in the White House, here’s hoping he does something huge for American journalism. He’s already been a huge boon to journalists, serving as a pinata for thwacks and clicks and fear and clicks and panic and clicks and outrage, shame, clicks and more clicks. But sometimes, clicks just

Castro a Hero to Useful Idiots, but Not to Those He’d Broken

John Kass, At least the death of the monstrous Cuban dictator Fidel Castro — who murdered his own people and turned his nation into an island prison — accomplished something.

How To Survive A Post-Election Meltdown on Thanksgiving

John Kass, Many Americans, afraid of almost everything these days — so afraid of being afraid that they’re easily herded like political livestock — will look to Thanksgiving with just one thing on their minds: Fear. It’s true and you know it. You’re afraid somebody will say something. And you’re afraid that you’ll respond, and

The Most Responsible thing for Democrats is ask Hillary Clinton to step down now

John Kass, Has America become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday’s FBI announcement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state? We’ll find out soon enough. It’s obvious the American political system

Will Hillary Explain Her Dream of ‘Open Borders’?

John Kass, Just as America was tossed — or did we eagerly jump? — into the sexual political gutter with Bill and Hillary and Donald, there was other news breaking. At least I thought it was news. But I must warn you: Sex and sexual politics has nothing to do with it. It’s Hillary Clinton’s

At The Clinton Foundation, You Can Smell The Meat A-Cookin’

John Kass, With so many journalists spending so much time shaming Donald Trump’s voters so as to protect Hillary Clinton in November, I’m getting mighty worried. I’m not worried about Trump. He’s a megalomaniac, and his kind of narcissism will help him blend in quite nicely in Washington if he’s elected president. And I’m not
