Guns


In the wake of the horrific Florida school shooting last week a predictable hue and cry by mostly political leftists is once again on full throttle for strict gun control laws in America. They think it’s a good idea to keep guns away from nut cases by banning guns altogether from everyone.

Of course, that won’t happen unless the 2nd Amendment is repealed. Until that unlikely possibility occurs Americans enjoy a qualified constitutional right to keep and bear arms. I say qualified because arms may be regulated without infringing on constitutional rights. So it is perfectly proper, for example, to keep guns from the possession of nut cases. It’s perfectly proper to regulate the kind of guns and/or ammunition the rest of us my keep and bear.  

We can all agree then that nut cases – mentally ill people – do not enjoy a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. They do not have a right to possess guns. Convicted criminals and others prone to commit violence have no right to possess guns.

Our object as responsible citizens then is to keep guns from people who aren’t entitled to possess them. It is simply not necessary to infringe upon the constitutional rights of rational law abiding citizens.

Nikolas Cruz, for instance, the nut case who perpetrated the Florida school massacre, showed every indication, every red flag, and every other sign that he was a violent threat to others long before he murdered seventeen innocent students at that school.  The local sheriff’s office had received about 20 calls from concerned citizens regarding his threats beforehand.

The FBI was notified five months before the event about a comment Cruz made on a YouTube channel: “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” The details of Cruz’s online comments came as former classmates, teachers and neighbors have said they long feared Cruz may have been capable of violence. He was expelled last year from that school for disciplinary reasons.

You see, the government authorities had abundant probable cause to intercept Nikolas Cruz before he committed his massacre. He should have had his guns taken away from him. He should have been incarcerated. He should have been institutionalized.  He enjoyed no constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

It certainly was not President Trump’s fault as the irrational leftists believe.

Cruz enjoyed no constitutional right to possess guns.

Military parade is a dumb idea


I support much of President Trump’s agenda. I’m grateful for his service and personal sacrifice to the nation. But I must confess that his desire for a military parade is a dumb idea.

He watched a big flashy military a parade in France last July during a Bastille Day celebration in Paris. After he returned home, Mr. Trump recalled that he told French President Emmanuel Macron that he was considering the idea of a similar spectacle in the United States. “I came back and one of my early calls were, ‘I think we are going to have to start looking at that ourselves… We are actually thinking about Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength.”

“We’re all aware in this country of the president’s affection and respect for the military,” Defense Secretary James Mattis said. “We have been putting together some options, we will send them up to the White House for decision.”

A similar event was last held in Washington in the summer of 1991, after the end of the 41-day gulf war was celebrated with a $12 million dollar victory parade. “The president is looking for opportunities to honor our service members and show appreciation, said Chief Pentagon Spokesperson Dana White.

Do we really need to waste more millions of dollars just to honor our troops and show our vast military strength? Do you think a military parade is a good idea? “No.” said Senator John Kennedy, Republican of Louisiana. “I think confidence is silent and insecurity is loud… America is the most powerful country in all of human history, everybody knows it, and we don’t need to show it off.”

"A military parade is third world bullshit,” said Robert O'Neill, the former Navy SEAL who claims he fired the shot that killed Osama bin Laden “We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation." 

Don’t we already have three federal government holidays to celebrate our troops: Independence Day, Memorial Day and Veterans Day? They aren’t suffering from a lack of “honor” are they? Don’t we already spend far too much on the military? Of course we do.

In 2016 we spent a total of $611.2 billion on military expenditures. That’s a whole lot more than the totals spent by the next eight big spending nations: China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, France, Britain, Japan and Germany combined. Now I’m all for a strong military but this situation is ridiculous. If we cut our military spending in half we would still have the strongest military on the planet by far. That should be Secretary Mattis’ job, right?

But, oh no -- $611 billion is apparently not nearly enough, is it? Just this week Congress officially passed a new spending deal that hikes defense budgets alone by at least another $160 billion. “The budget deal is a win for the American people,” Democrat senator, Chuck Schumer, said on the Senate floor Wednesday.

Wonderful! Soon the budget deficit every year will total over a $trillion dollars. We’re spending $trillion dollars more than we can afford every year. Government debt is already now approaching $21 trillion and there is no end in sight.

Yes, President Trump, a military parade is a waste of money and a dumb idea.

Dirty Cops


Now we know with reasonable certainty that the highest officials in the United States government, including President Barack Obama, his dirty cops at the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), attempted to criminally alter the outcome of the 2016 presidential election in favor of Democrat criminal, Hillary Clinton, against Republican, Donald Trump.

Recall that these same dirty cops brazenly fixed the results of a yearlong Investigation sham into Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Use of a Personal E-Mail System. After meticulously listing in detail almost every false statement, lie and serious crime she committed with regard to her private e-mail scheme during her tenure in office, FBI director, James Comey looked straight into the camera and concluded with a straight face that he would not be recommending to the Department of Justice that Clinton be prosecuted.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch, had already promised the nation after her private meeting with Clinton’s husband, Bill that she would accept her dirty cop’s recommendation.  The fix was in. And dirty cop Comey gagged his agents to prevent them from telling us the whole truth about Clinton’s crimes and exactly why and how she’s escaping justice.

Bill Clinton and Lynch had something to hide and didn’t want inquisitive reporters documenting their “secret” meeting. He got the news that the fix was in and he could tell his wife that the coast was clear. President Obama would never have taken the chance to endorse Hillary Clinton when did unless he knew for certain that the fix was in.

FBI and DOJ rank and file – the clean cops – knew then that Hillary Clinton was a felon. Career FBI agents and DOJ attorneys on the case unanimously believed that she should have been charged. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate her. The politically motivated decision by the dirty cops left them all dismayed and disgusted. 

“They believe the decision not to prosecute came from The White House.” “The FBI has politicized itself, and its reputation will suffer for a long time. I hold Director Comey responsible,” says Dennis V. Hughes, the first chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit. Retired FBI agent Michael M. Biasello agreed saying, “Comey has singlehandedly ruined the reputation of the organization.”

The FBI investigation was hampered from the beginning, because there was no grand jury, and no search warrants or subpoenas issued, explains Judge Andrew Napolitano. “The FBI could not seize anything related to the investigation, only request things. As an example, in order to get the laptop, they had to agree to grant immunity.” 

None of these characters should have been granted immunity if no charges were being brought.  “[Immunity] is issued because you know someone possesses evidence you need to charge the target, and you almost always know what it is they possess… That's why you give immunity.”

Cheryl Mills’ dual role as Clinton’s attorney and a witness in her own right should never have been tolerated either. “Mills was allowed to sit in on the interview of Clinton as her lawyer. That's absurd. Someone who is supposedly cooperating against the target of an investigation [being] permitted to sit by the target as counsel violates any semblance of ethical responsibility,” says a confidential FBI source. “Every agent and attorney I have spoken to is embarrassed and has lost total respect for James Comey and Loretta Lynch,” 

“Loretta Lynch simply wants to stay on as Attorney General under Clinton, so there is no way she would indict,” the source said. “James Comey thought his position [excoriating Clinton even as he let her off the hook] gave himself cover to remain on as director regardless of who wins.”

WikiLeaks released internal Clinton communication records that show the Department of Justice dirty cops kept Clinton’s campaign and her staff informed from the beginning about the progress of its sham investigation. So it was a compromised and fraudulent FBI investigation right from the get go. The political fix was in. The dirty cops wanted Hillary to be our next president in spite of her crimes. It proves that our United States government is corrupt and rotten to the core with dirty cops at the highest levels.

The little people however, including the clean cops of the FBI and DOJ rank and file, the ones who painstakingly gathered the evidence, know beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Hillary Clinton is a felon. She should have been charged for her crimes. She should be in jail right now. It’s a miracle that Trump was able to overcome the tremendous odds against him and be elected President of the United States. It makes me ashamed to be an American.  

Yes, Trump Triumphed. He overcame all the odds. His opponents and the dirty cops were shocked. All of the several key battleground swing states that Trump won – which gave him is victory in the Electoral College – were won by relatively small margins. They might have gone either way depending on voter turnout. 

The dirty cops got behind the most corrupt and dishonest person ever to seek the presidency simply because she’s a woman and would thus become the first woman president. Her vagina was far more important to them than her record and political attributes.

In short, Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate for president. She was dishonest, two faced, self-dealing, lazy, and un-charismatic; no one liked her; few trusted her; she carried more baggage than a cruise ship; and her long record of political failures, character flaws, criminality and abysmal incompetence was well documented in so many ways. This was the gift that kept on giving for the honest American voters and Donald Trump.

Trump’s message to the voters was spot on. His supporters loved it. He would often hold five different rallies per day in five different states, each attracting tens of thousands of screaming, sign waving, enthusiastic supporters, while Clinton could barely manage to pull a few hundred stiffs to her infrequent events. Sometimes she had to pay them to come. And she would often go days and weeks without campaigning while Trump just kept going and going and going.

Trump focused on the issues most important to productive hard working honest Americans – government corruption in Washington; the economy; jobs; GDP growth; foreign trade deals; illegal immigration; energy policy; taxes; business; stifling government regulations; healthcare; gun rights; education; foreign policy; ISIS terror threats; infrastructure; National defense; and veterans affairs reform.

He successfully convinced the voters that the level of corruption, waste and fraud in America has advanced to intolerable nation threatening levels, and that he would do what is necessary to fix it. He’s going to drain the swamp in Washington. 

Imagine the impact of that message with all the elite swamp creatures and cock roaches on K Street and within the D.C. belt-way. These are the rich fat parasites that have been sucking the blood and vital nutrients of our nation for far too many decades and therefore hate Donald Trump’s guts. He has shined the light on them. He’s promised to root them out and pick them off like bloated ticks one by one. Decent patriotic hard working producing Americans love Trump’s message.

And today we finally have more damning proof from the U. S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memorandum that these same dirty cops conspired with Hillary Clinton, her Democratic National Committee (DNC), and many other high level American Democrat Party politician parasites and traitors, with false evidence presented to a secret court, to criminally sabotage Trump’s candidacy and throw the presidential election to her.  

No wonder these filthy weasels were trying so desperately lately to keep this proof a secret. It documents how they politicized the highest government officials in America to try to take our new President of the United States down.

Read this shocking proof for yourselves.

The dirty cops have not and will not succeed.

Moore deception

When you think of prominent faces in today’s Democratic Party, who comes to mind?

Michael Moore?

He typifies the Democratic Party in my mind as I’ve observed more than once on these pages. Michael Moore, that ugly scruffy face of our American ultra-left wing loony toons fringe brigade, hates our new President so much, and is so completely deluded,  that he’s willing to claim in all seriousness that Donald Trump, in only 70 days as President, has already caused the total “extinction of Human life on earth.,” I posted last April. 

Michael Moore claimed then that Trump is killing us all. It’s now almost a year later. Do you believe it?

This is the face of America’s Democrat Party today: a morbidly obese slob whose single pathetic mission in life is to sabotage the Presidency of Donald Trump by any and all intellectually dishonest means possible, I observed last February. 

“First, let's acknowledge what we all know to be true: Trump is in deep, deep trouble -- in the pocket of Russians, surrounded by alt.right idiots, alone in his bathrobe in a mostly-empty White House -- and caught inside a disgusting "shit-sandwich", said Moore. Do you believe it?

That’s right, Michael; just keep telling your Party a sack of transparently bold faced lies about “the dark force that is Trump,” and expect them to be believed. Do you believe it? 

Michael Moore admits that he’s on a political vendetta against Trump. Sounds like a great way to gain lasting friendship and credibility with Americans, and their politician representatives on both sides of the aisle, doesn’t it?

Last Saturday Moore spoke during the Women's March on Washington claiming that President Trump needs to be overthrown before he ends the world. “Donald J. Trump has proven himself to be completely unfit for office, a threat to our country, and an imminent danger to the world. He is not well; he is a malignant narcissist and an active sociopath. And because he holds the codes to fire nuclear weapons, he is a singular threat to humanity,” Do you believe it?

“I'm joining Mark Ruffalo, Common, Whoopi Goldberg, Wanda Sykes, and Cynthia Nixon, as well as inspirational grassroots leaders and progressive organizing champions and MoveOn for the People's State of the Union event in New York City on Monday, the day before Trump gives his State of the Union speech in front of Congress” says Moore. “And maybe you can join us there, too! Together, we will show that bully in the White House that we aren't going away. In fact, we're only getting stronger, and we'll be marching to the ballot boxes this fall. Do you believe it?

Yes indeed, when Americans think of prominent faces in the Democrat Party today, they think of Michael Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill & Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Rep. Maxine Watters, Antifa, MoveOn.org, Occupy Wall Street, Harvey Weinstein & the Hollywood Elites, Rep. Frederica Wilson, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and on and on.

Do you believe these people? If so, by all means you may vote for them and all they represent, including their next candidate for president.

Let them talk! Let them keep talking. Listen carefully to them. Do you believe it?

The more they talk -- the more they deceive -- the less they will be believed.

“D” stands for deceit

Government policy affects our lives. So it is necessary to follow politics. Political party affiliation is not necessary though. All political parties are flawed. I’m neither Republican nor Democrat but lean Libertarian. It’s the policy which becomes law that’s important no matter who initiates it -- not the party. Too many good people forget that. I like all my Democrat affiliated friends, for instance, but in today’s toxic political atmosphere, more than at any other time in history, the letter “D” in Democrat stands for deceit.

Party affiliated Democrats today are infected by an irrational hatred for President Donald Trump bordering on pathological. Lacking any credible evidence to support their hatred they consistently employ the artifice of deceit. They lie about the facts. They repeat the lies over and over again in the mainstream media until the people are inundated by falsehoods and deceit. The politically uninformed are conditioned to believe the lies.

Trump is a racist Democrats chant again and again without any evidence. I’ve observed and responded to that lie on these pages with of mountains of evidence to the contrary. He’s not a racist. In fact, he’s accomplished more for race relations during his life than most politicians.

Trump is mentally and physically ill claim the Democrats. He’s crazy. He’s demented. He exhibits early Alzheimer’s disease. He suffers dementia and serious cognitive impairments. He has heart disease. So he’s both mentally and physically unfit to be President of the United States. This is just more deceit. These are bald faced lies.

White House physician, Admiral Ronny Jackson – the same physician who treated Trump’s predecessors, Obama and Bush – shot down every single one of these lies in detail last week at an official press briefing, calling the 71 year old’s physical and mental health excellent.” He’s absolutely “fit for duty,” and will likely be in good health for the rest of his term, as well as a possible second term, Jackson confirmed. In fact, Trump performed “exceedingly well,” scoring 30 out of 30 questions on a cognitive assessment test and showed no signs of cognitive decline.

“The pipe dream of using ‘incapacity’ via the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove Mr. Trump, came to a crashing halt this week courtesy of Dr. Ronny Jackson, former President Barack Obama’s doctor,” observed New York Times best-selling author, Tammy Bruce. “I can reliably say, and I think that the folks in the mental health [field] would back me up on the fact that if he had some kind of mental, cognitive issue, that this test is sensitive enough, it would have picked up on it. He would not have got 30 out of 30. … And my personal experience is that he has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever,” said the physician who actually examined Trump.

Now Democrats’ deceitfully claim that Republicans are to blame for the “Trump government shutdown.” The facts, however, clearly show that the Democrats insisted on the “Schumer shutdown,” all because of their irrational hatred for Trump.

Republicans passed a continuing resolution in the House to fund the government. Only three Democrats voted for it even though no Democrats objected to any of its provisions. Sixty votes were required in the Senate to make it law. Senator Schumer objected to Senator McConnell’s motion of unanimous consent for a 50-vote final passage vote, effectively killing it and thereby causing the government shutdown.

These lies represent only the tip of the Democrat iceberg of political deceit. (more to come next week)

The letter “D” in Democrat stands for deceit.

Racist mania II

Q: What do irrational people do these days when they don’t agree with your politics?

A: They call you a racist.

President Trump is a racist, they say. Anyone who agrees with any part of his politics is a racist. If you support Trump you are a racist. That’s the political and social atmosphere today. Every political or social motive is racist. Racists are irrationally seen behind every tree as I explained in detail earlier this month in my post: Racist mania.

Now all the Trump haters on the planet are crowing sanctimoniously about “more proof” that he’s a racist because he talked tough about his immigration policy during a closed door off the record bipartisan oval office meeting with congressional attendees. Naturally, a huge media controversy ensued.

Democratic Senator, Dick Durbin, got the racist mania ball rolling again when he told the media that Trump repeatedly complained during the meeting about immigrants from “shithole countries.” 

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” Trump tweeted in response. He characterized Durban’s claims as “Made up by Dems.”

There is no audio or visual record of what anyone said. So we have no choice but to consider the recollections of attendees who were there. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (AR) and David Perdue (GA) confirmed they don't recall those vulgar characterizations from the President.

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Perdue said Trump did not make that comment. “The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive.”

Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Sen. Cotton said Durbin misrepresented Trump’s reported “shithole” comments. “I didn’t hear that word either,” Cotton said. “I certainly didn’t hear what Sen. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen. Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings, though, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by that… “I didn’t hear it. And I was sitting no farther away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was, and I know what Dick Durbin has said about the president’s repeated statements is incorrect.”

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was also an attendee. She said Sunday she doesn’t recall President Donald Trump’s reported comments about immigration from “shithole” countries. “The president is saying is he would like to move to merit-based, based on individuals. Whether individuals can come here and contribute to our society, help our economy and assimilating communities and help America be better,” she said. “I take a little bit of offense to the comments and suggestions that the president is racist. He's looking at the exact merit-based system they have in Australia and Canada. I'm sure that we are not, any of us, suggesting that Australia and ... Canada['s] leaders are racist.”

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky said Sunday that it is "unfair" to call President Donald Trump a racist. “I think it’s unfair to sort of paint him, ‘oh well, he’s a racist,’ when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul said.

“Donald Trump is not a racist,” actor/director/producer Clint Eastwood says  in a 2016 interview with Esquire. “Get over it!” Young America — which he has dubbed both the “kiss-ass” and “pussy” generation — needs to stop throwing the word “racist” around so freely. “[Trump’s] onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” he said. “We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

“Racism is just a word that is being bandied about and thrown… at the president unjustly,” said Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, Alveda King this week. “President Trump is not a racist.” She defended accusations of racism against Trump, calling his critics “outrageous.”

Appearing alongside President Trump at a White House event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Friday, the nephew of the late civil rights icon said he does not believe Trump is racist “in the traditional sense.”   

After being ousted from her job as communications director in the Office of Public Liaison at the White House, Omarosa Manigault Newman still wants to stand behind the man who has had the opportunity to fire her not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times in the last 15 years. Omarosa claims in a new interview that Donald Trump is not racist.

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain wants to dispel “one of the biggest lies out there about Donald Trump”: that he’s a racist. “I wanna set the record straight because that’s what I do, as you know, on my radio show nearly every day… Why? Because there are a lot of lies out there. Allow me to set the record straight about one of the biggest lies out there about Donald Trump, and I hope the liberals and the liberal media’s listening… “Donald Trump is not a racist…. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. I know what a racist looks like when I see one, and Donald Trump is not a racist.”

Kara Young, who is biracial, was Trump’s girlfriend for two years in the ‘90s. She’s surprised that her ex-boyfriend is up to his neck in racial controversy. “I never heard him say a disparaging comment towards any race of people,” she told the New York Times.


In 2016 Rev. Jesse Jackson praises and thanks Donald Trump for a lifetime of service to African Americans

Let me make myself perfectly clear: President Trump is NOT and never has been a racist! This irrational racist mania in the political atmosphere of today is rendering the term “racist” meaningless. Eventually it’s going to boomerang against the Trump haters.

Oprah Winfrey: Is this the best they've got?

I admire and respect Oprah Winfrey for her talent and business success. She was the recipient last Sunday of the Golden Globes' annual Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement at a gathering of her ultra-leftist Hollywood friends and is now being seriously touted by Democrats as the best candidate to beat Donald Trump for President of the United States in 2020.

Seriously?  Is this the best they've got?

Winfrey has cultivated over many years huge celebrity to her female fans as the soft fuzzy image of a modern day enlightened everywoman with her self-aware, self-help, positive-thinking attitude.

She fancies herself a champion for women and women’s rights as indicated by her acceptance speech lecture to men during Sunday night's award ceremony: 

“So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue… For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”

Oprah and the rest of her shallow minded Hollywood lady friends at the event were dressed in black as a tribute to all the women in history who’ve been sexually exploited, assaulted and abused by men. Conspicuously not mentioned in her speech was her best Hollywood buddy, Harvey Weinstein, the greatest sexual abuser of them all.


Winfrey it seems was one of Harvey’s most ardent enabler’s when it came to procuring female victims for his sexual gratification escapades. That’s Oprah herself sucking on Weinstein’s ear at an earlier Hollywood awards ceremony in 2014… 


You see, Oprah has maintained a very close personal and professional relationship with Harvey Weinstein over the past two decades. British actress Kadian Noble, one of his many accusers claims he employed Oprah to lure her in before sexually assaulting her. “I felt completely played,” she said.​ Even after he was exposed as a sexual predator, Oprah called him to offer her advice and support.

So much for Oprah Winfrey being a champion of women and women’s rights.

If Winfrey will run for president, what is her position on the issues, you might ask? What are her policies? In fact, she supports a one world global government. She’s a globalist. In the past, she’s met with George Soros, David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Ted Turner and others at a secret billionaire’s club to promote a world government program designed to reduce the African population by around 50%.

So much for her position on human rights.

What about Winfrey’s past? One 2010 book describes it and her “hidden life” in considerable detail – how she concocted stories about sexual abuse she suffered as a child and grossly exaggerated the poverty she was brought up in. She went to great lengths to conceal her "lesbian affairs," including hefty payoffs, and publicly attached herself to a man friend to appear more normal to her audience of housewives.

She admits that she sold her body to earn extra money and even described herself as a teen "prostitute." Her father, Vernon Winfrey, says he's been dismayed by how Oprah plays fast and loose with the truth. "She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth," he says. "So does God and so does Oprah; two of us remain ashamed."

Her biggest contribution to the self-improvement aspect of her life is her promotion of retail therapy -- the idea that you can spend your way to happiness and fulfillment. She makes the contradictory claims that happiness is available for everyone and that $25 pairs of socks are the way to get it. She’s an awfully expensive person to emulate. She’s just another big government spending leftist.

Her TV show is hardly more sophisticated than Jerry Springer’s. She presents it as an empathetic platform for discussing serious issues, but at heart, it’s still a freak show. The only difference between her show and the low-rent versions is that Oprah gets the A-list freaks. There’s no great truth she’s seeking from her guests.

Oprah’s been lauded as the world’s most powerful and most influential woman due to her millions of viewers, readers, and listeners, and no other talk-show host, celebrity, or world leader has the aura of authority that Oprah has. But while celebrity worship is nothing new, the "cult of Oprah" is on an entirely new level. Her most devout admirers watch her religiously, quote her as an expert, and scramble for every product she endorses or even mentions. The idea that Oprah expresses anything more valuable than her own opinions gives her a level of misplaced trust she doesn’t deserve.

The leftists want Oprah Winfrey for President..

Seriously?  Is this the best they've got?
