‘CAUSE RIGHT NOW ALL WE HAVE IS THE DUMMY…

September 13th, 2017

From The Washington Post: An Ivy League graduate headed to law school, with eyes on becoming her state’s first female governor, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund knew the importance of answering a question head-on.

STEVE BANNON STEPS FROM BEHIND THE CURTAIN…

September 12th, 2017

Trevor is funny and on target, but if all you know about the 60 Minutes conversation between Steve Bannon and Charlie Rose comes from the late-night television show hosts (like Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert for starters) then you’re grossly uninformed. I confess that I agree with much of Bannon’s assessment. I also disagree with […]

MEET THE BACKBONE OF THE UNITED STATES NAVY…

September 5th, 2017

On board the USS Bainbridge, CGN 25, we had a saying: The captain speaks to god, but the chief is god. There has been a spate of ignorant silliness of late as a result to the high-profile collisions of the USS Fitzgerald DDG 62 and the USS John S. McCain DDG 56 that make claims […]
