Poll Vaulting

Just in time before the start of 2016, a new poll just released has rocked the political and academic world! By the widest margin ever recorded, Brian Wilson , noted broadcaster, blogger, podcaster, author and LRC contributor, has been named 2015 “America’s Most Admired Political Pundit” according to a Gallop survey.

2016 Predictions

Toward the end of my last conversation with Judge Napolitano, I asked him for a prediction, just one prediction for 2016 that I could note on the calendar and we could track for accuracy and precedents. You may recall, the judge responded that the answer to my question was part of his end of the year column for Lou which he had already written. As a result, all of us would just have to wait until the 31st to find out. Fearlessly, I have a few predictions of my own.

Thought for 2016

Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it.

A Political Christmas Fantasy

Dear Santa, Here’s a great idea for a Christmas present only you can bring as a gift to America. With your state-of-the-art workshop along with the talent and genius of your elves, your North Pole HQ could make this happen just in the Nick of time (Nick…St Nick…get it?! Ho Ho Ho!) OK - here’s the plan: Since none of the GOP Top Tier Presidential candidates have all the qualities and talents necessary to capture the hearts and minds of American voters, construct the Perfect Composite Candidate made from the “best and brightest” qualities of all of them!

An Open Letter to the West

  Islam is not like any other religion. What I am about to share is the ultimate truth that has been lived, experienced and suffered by me for more than 30 years. This experience was gained by living in my home country of Egypt which is now a pure Muslim society. Like so many others I have been burned by this transformation. This transformation has seen me witness and experience Islam turn my home country to ruins and its followers are now threatening to bring the same fate to your own country.

The "Magic System"

A lot of Americans believe that the American “Founders” created a system that automatically fixes itself. They talk about the “balance of powers,” and think that it will always save them from a tyrant. The balanced powers of the US Constitution, however, were trashed within fifteen years and doubly-trashed just a century ago. In the Constitution,

Dear New Yorker

In response to this New Yorker piece.... So a staff scribbler with the dependably predictable anti-gun prejudice tosses off an opinion piece chock full of the same nutty emotive code words and factually incorrect statements, all the while ignoring significantly inconvenient elements of the story that mess with his conclusions. Paraphrasing Dean Wormer ("Animal House" for the youngsters): Myopic, uninformed and proud of it is no way to go through life, son. Owning a gun -  or 5 dozen guns -

Re Trump

From a colleague, reiterating some of my earlier comments and adding some new ones... BW They will kill him before they let him be president.  It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.  Don't be surprised if Trump has an accident.  Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.
