Scaros: Don’t Be So Sure Bumbling Joe Biden Won’t Win Re-Election

The following article, Scaros: Don’t Be So Sure Bumbling Joe Biden Won’t Win Re-Election, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Exactly two years ago it became increasingly likely that Joe Biden would pull away from the rest of the Democratic presidential hopefuls and win that party’s nomination.

The following article, Op-Ed: Sarah Palin’s Back in Politics, And This Time She Has a Better Chance, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Donald Trump was arguably the most polarizing president of modern times.

[…]

Scaros: Judicial Candidates Should Be Unanimously Confirmed

The following article, Scaros: Judicial Candidates Should Be Unanimously Confirmed, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Over the past six congressional sessions, Democrats controlled both houses twice, Republicans twice, and the other two times the two major parties split control.

The following article, Op-Ed: On the World Stage, It’s Better to Be Hulk Hogan Than Bruce Lee, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Bruce Lee was puny. He stood 5 feet 8 inches and weighed a meager 140 pounds. He looked as if you could knock him over with a feather. Yet many consider him the greatest hand-to-hand combat fighter of all time. If someone saw Lee walking down a dark alley and, not knowing who he was, […]

Op-Ed: Want to Beat Biden in 2024? Stop Laughing at Him

The following article, Op-Ed: Want to Beat Biden in 2024? Stop Laughing at Him, was first published on Flag And Cross.

There are three major sets of voters in the United States: Republican Reds, Democrat Blues and undecided Purples. Except for a tiny sliver who suffer from full-blown Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), most Reds would back the former president in a 2024 run or support another Trump-like figure, such as Florida Gov. Ron De Santis. They’re […]

The following article, Scaros: No Word Is Safe from the Long Arm of The New York Times, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The game Wordle has taken America by storm, and The New York Times seized the opportunity. In early February, the Times bought Wordle and in a hot minute managed to emboss its giant, judgmental, patronizing, pompous imprint on it.

The following article, Op-Ed: Garbage Journalism – How the Media Is Trying to Break Up the Trump-DeSantis DreamTeam, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Legend has it that at the outbreak of the Cuban Revolution of 1895, New York World publisher William Randolph Hearst sent illustrator Frederick Remington there to cover the action. When Remington reported that there was no action to cover, Hearst famously replied, “You furnish the pictures, I’ll furnish the war.” That was a pivotal moment […]

Thirty years ago, I graduated from New York Law School, about a seven-minute walk from City Hall, whose inhabitant at the time of my graduation was Mayor David Dinkins.

The following article, Scaros: De Blasio’s Twisted ‘Honor System’ Is Destroying New York City, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The phrase “There’s honor among thieves” can be traced back at least to the days of the ancient Roman orator Cicero. But in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City, apparently, there’s honor among arsonists, too. On Wednesday evening, a 50-foot Christmas tree in front of the Midtown Manhattan headquarters of Fox News, The Wall […]

Op-Ed: No, Obama Isn’t Really the One Running the Country

The following article, Op-Ed: No, Obama Isn’t Really the One Running the Country, was first published on Flag And Cross.

A surprising number of generally reasonable and intelligent conservatives are under the impression that former President Barack Obama is really the one running the country, from behind the scenes. The theory generally goes like this: Biden campaigned as a moderate but veered radically leftward since taking office, and because his cognitive skills are severely compromised, […]
