You know what's getting old? This tired line from the left-wing media that President Donald Trump is a racist anti-Semitic homophobe. Let's dispense with the anti-Semitism charge straight away.

The man just moved the American embassy to Jerusalem. This is something Israel has wanted us to do for decades. It's also something that three prior presidents promised to do but didn't. Donald Trump said on the campaign trail that he would move the embassy and he did. Why that's so controversial is beyond me, but Israel loves Donald Trump. One would think a president who promised to move the embassy then didn't would be the one labeled anti-Semitic. Only in the world of Trump Derangement Syndrome do we see this.

Not to mention that Trump's own daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids are Jewish. The media made hay over Trump's reportedly odd relationship with his daughter. He's obviously crazy about her. And she's Jewish. How can the man hate Jews?

Oh, but that's just his daughter. He must hate all the other Jews, right? No. He surrounds himself with Jews. He's done business his entire life with Jews. He seeks their counsel. He appoints them to positions of power and socializes with them.

Which brings me to Mar-a-Lago. Some of you may not be familiar with this story. It's amazing how many people aren't. Trump bought Mar-a-Lago in 1985 and proceeded to turn it into a social club. The only problem was he socialized with blacks, gays, and Jews. The town of Palm Beach continually tried to throw roadblocks in front of him and shut the club down. Trump sued. At an infamous hearing in 1996, Trump had his attorney distribute copies of the movies Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, about a white woman who brings a black man home to meet her parents, and Gentleman's Agreement, about a reporter who masquerades as a Jew to write a piece on anti-Semitism. Trump filed another lawsuit. The town council eventually relented.

If you're hearing this story for the first time you need to ask yourself why that is. I always say media bias isn't so much what they tell you, it's what they don't. That Mar-a-Lago story is a huge piece of the Donald Trump story. Let me ask it this way. Can you imagine the left-wing media would ever stop talking about that story if it were a Democrat? Not a chance. In fact, the Democrat would've already won some coveted left-wing prize for it.

Donald Trump is anti-illegal immigrant. The left wants you to think he's just anti-immigrant. He's also anti-terrorist. The left would have you believe he's anti-Muslim. The problem is the left is losing so badly these days that the only club they have left in their golf bag is the bigotry wedge. And it's wearing thin.

Even such liberal darlings as former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown have admitted trashing Trump is a losing strategy. "It's time for Democrats to stop bashing President Trump," Brown recently wrote in the Chronicle. "Like it or not," he wrote, "a significant number of Americans are actually happy these days." He admonished the Democrats for not coming up with their own platform that addresses voters' hopes and dreams.


Donald Trump joked on the campaign trail that America would get so sick of winning. The Democrats already are. That much-touted 'Blue Wave' grows ever-smaller as it fades over the horizon. And if you look real hard you can see it waving goodbye.

The bums are out of control
Homeless people are taking over. I know we're supposed to be sympathetic, and I am. I've worked with the homeless in varying capacities. I've given my time and money. I have a special place in my heart for the truly needy. But I fear too many are taking advantage of our generosity. Take the ubiquitous person at the off-ramp with the sign....

Is going back to the moon worth it?
Before we get into this I don't want anyone thinking I'm a space curmudgeon. I loved Star Trek. (Star Wars, not so much.) I think space exploration is exciting. I'm old enough to remember when we landed on the moon. You'd be amazed at how many people are alive today who weren't even born the last time we went to the moon in 1972. Now it's been r...

Don't fear the Chinese trade war
Everybody's freaking out about a trade war with China. What's the worst case scenario? That we no longer do business with China? That would be fine by me. China is on just about every group's top 10 list of human rights violators, usually at the very top. It's a brutal communist regime that's killed tens of millions of people. An estimated 45 mi...

Mayor Pete is NOT president-ready
What qualifies a person to be president? Interesting question. Pose it to a hundred people you'll probably get a hundred answers. Most will say experience. That can either be in the business world, as in President Trump's case, or political. What kind of political experience? Most of our presidents have first been governor somewhere. A few, like...

Thirty years asleep
I read an article in The National, a publication from the United Arab Emirates, about an Emirati woman who awakened from a coma after nearly 30 years. Can you imagine that? It got me to thinking whether someone in that situation would find the world a better or worse place after 30 years.Just think of what has transpired over the past 30 years. ...

Reparations make victims out of the victimless
Georgetown University students recently voted 2-1 to create a $27 student fee to pay reparations to descendants of slaves sold by the university in 1838 in order to save it. Descendants of those 272 slaves are treated as legacy students by the university, giving them preferential treatment in admissions. The liberal world rejoiced, but it was si...

At war with socialism
This is almost like a war. We're fighting socialism on so many fronts. One wave of the dreaded enemy is approaching from the west as California seeks to tax soft drinks, tires, guns, car batteries, even lawyers. Anything the socialists don't like they tax. Another big battle front is in the southwest. The one at the southern border. They've pene...

The left must stop Joe Biden at all cost
You would think with the resume of Joe Biden you'd be embraced by your own party. This ain't Joe's party any longer. It's the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. You wonder why the Democrats aren't rushing to Joe's defense over accusations of inappropriate touching? The truth is the socialist wing of the Democrat Party is behind th...

After Mueller, now what?
I think everyone can agree, regardless of political ideology, the Trump-Russia issue turned into a big mess. The news media detest not knowing. In place of good, solid information on just what may have transpired between the Trump campaign and Russia, or just what may not have transpired, they chose to fill in the blanks with rampant negative sp...

The race to Venezuela is on
There's this guy named Andrew Yang. You've probably never heard of him. The San Francisco Chronicle is singing his praises. Why? Because he's running for president and he's promising a 'freedom dividend' to every adult American. What's a freedom dividend? It's $1,000 a month just for being alive. How does he expect to pay for this? Oh, he has no...
