  • Resist!

    Wayne Bush|Nov 19, 2020

    “Indeed, you won the elections, but I won the count.” — Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza (1896-1956), Guardian (London), June 17, 1977 If you read last month’s column … I nailed it. Democrats in key states managed to “find” enough votes to push Comrades Biden and Harris over the finish line … for now, anyway. Despite the contested nature of the race, the media gods have anointed Comrade Biden as the Chosen One. Now we hear them using the terms “baseless” and “not...

  • A Lot At Stake

    Wayne Bush, Herald Columnist|Oct 15, 2020

    When DJT announced his candidacy in 2016, I was one of many conservatives that scoffed, snickered and thought it was just another publicity stunt by an attention-craving, billionaire playboy. But I actually did something that a lot of other conservatives and "Republicans" never did ... I listened to him and observed his actions. I remember the anger, and tears, of the Republican Party person working the primary polling station when I informed her that I was voting for Trump and not Cruz. While...

  • Let Yourself Hear

    Wayne Bush|Sep 17, 2020

    Most times a man will tell his bad intentions if you listen, let yourself hear. – Charles Travis Postelwaite (Kevin Costner), from the movie "Open Range." According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of Civil War is "a war between opposing groups of citizens of the same country." Whether people want to accept it or not, America is currently in a civil war – except, for now anyway, only one side is fighting. Marxists have taken over the Democrat Party and are engaging in radical...

  • The Myths of Systemic Racism and Police Brutality, Part 1

    Wayne Bush|Jun 18, 2020

    "There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs." – Booker T. Washington, circa...

  • Same ol', Same ol'

    Wayne Bush|Mar 19, 2020

    During a recent social media debate, a Trump hater threw out some of the same ol' talking points that I always hear. Allow me to address some of them. Trump lies all the time. I hear this one a lot but when I ask for examples, they can't seem to supply any. Disagreement does not equal a lie. If they're counting embellishment and Trump's frequent mild exaggerations ... well, they might have a point but more often than not, they're hearing that Trump lied from a source that has been lying about...

  • Pandering to Criminals and Illegals

    Wayne Bush|Feb 20, 2020

    "I'm famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can't stop me! Bail reform, it's lit! It's the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can't touch me! I can't be stopped! It's a great thing. It's a beautiful thing." – Charles Barry If you read the above quote and wondered to yourself, "Who the heck is Charles Barry?" you're not alone. More about Mr. Barry later. People who pay attention to politics already know that the Democrat Party has reversed...

  • How Did We Get Here?

    Wayne Bush|Jan 16, 2020

    Impeachment update: For those who may not be able to stomach the constant, three-years-long-now obsession to undo the 2016 election ... here's the latest: On Dec. 18, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House rushed to impeach President Trump for abuse of power and for contempt of Congress before they went on their Christmas break. They claimed it had to be done as soon as possible because Trump represents a clear and present danger to our country and must be removed as soon as possible. The contempt...

  • The Mueller Report, Part II

    Wayne Bush|Sep 26, 2019

    It feels so "yesterday" to be writing about the Mueller Report. Seriously, when is the last time you've heard a Democrat, or any of their sock puppets in the news media, mention Mueller? These people could not stop talking about him and his report and then his expected "bombshell" testimony before Congress turned out to be a dud; another embarrassment for Democrats. Let's start with some perspective on Mueller's investigative team. The team consisted of 17 hand-picked career prosecutors, not...

  • The Mueller Report, Part I

    Wayne Bush|Aug 15, 2019

    When the Mueller Report first came out, the haters were in total denial. After lying to the American people for over two years, they refused to believe that Mueller found no "collusion." They insisted that Mueller, despite his exhaustive investigation conducted by an entire team of Clinton-supporting lawyers, missed it. Their loyal minions, duped by Trump haters and blinded by their hate, still believe everything they're told. It brings to mind Aesop's fable "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," except in t...

  • Dave Scott's July Column Misleads

    Wayne Bush|Jul 18, 2019

    I read "Dave Scott, Jr.'s" "Nonfiction Section" in the July 5, 2019, Herald and, as usual, some of his information sounds ... well, fictional. But "Dave" doesn't site the source for his numbers. Communists – er, excuse me, "Progressives" seldom do. (Editor's Note: the opinion column by Dave Scott, Jr., appeared on Page A-4 of the July 5, 2019 edition of the Herald.) I searched for "business refuses service to African American" and "business refuses service to Jew" and "business refuses service...

  • Danger! Danger! Democracy In Danger!!

    Wayne Bush|Jun 20, 2019

    "The sky is falling; the sky is falling!" ~Chicken Little Have you ever paid attention to the scripted hyperbole spewed by the democrats and their sycophants in the media? There are video montages that show these Trump haters all using the exact same phrases. Try searching "beginning of the end Trump" and "walls are closing in Trump." It would be amusing if it weren't so scary. The latest directive from the Politburo must have encouraged party members to wring their hands and tell the masses tha...

  • Society and Politics in Wayne's World

    Wayne Bush, Correspondent|Apr 18, 2019

    Comrade Bernie Sanders is now advocating for giving convicted felons the right to vote even if they have to do it from their prison cell. Comrade Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts, introduced a U.S. House bill that would amend the constitution to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. Comrade Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is all for it. So are over half of their comrade Democrats in the House and one Republican. The final vote was 125 Dems for and 108 against; 197 Repubs against and one lone...

  • Hoaxes and Trump Derangement Syndrome

    Wayne Bush|Mar 21, 2019

    Fake hate crimes, committed by fake Trump supporters, began to roll in as soon as the election results were in. And they haven't stopped. On Nov. 10, 2016, a Muslim University of Louisiana student reported to police that two white men, one of with was wearing a "Trump hat" attacked her and ripped her hijab from her head. She later admitted to fabricating the story. Also, and probably not coincidentally, on Nov. 10, a San Diego State University student reported that she also was confronted by...

  • Society and Politics In Wayne's World: Marxist Amerika

    Wayne Bush, Correspondent|Feb 21, 2019

    "Socialism is for the people, not the Socialists." – Andrew Wilkow Nothing raises the dander on the average Democrat like calling them a Marxist. I know, I've been doing it for years. But things are changing. The Democrat Party itself is charging headlong down the path of Marxism. They seem to be embracing it. Don't take my word for it. Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez, speaking about freshman New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) said "... she represents...

  • Alinskyites 101, Part 3

    Wayne Bush|Jan 17, 2019

    By now you should be figuring out that Saul Alinsky was a guy that believed in winning his political battles at any cost. Alinskyites have no qualms about lying or cheating in order to achieve a desired end. Of course, it helps that they have the overwhelming majority of news media outlets solidly on their side, pushing the same agenda. In 2012, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid stood in the Well of the Senate, where he knew he enjoyed the protections of immunity against any lawsuits, and...

  • Alinskyites 101, Part 2

    Wayne Bush|Dec 20, 2018

    In last month’s column, we went over some of Saul D. Alinsky’s tactics and how the Democrats use them. His book – their playbook – is full of tactics and strategies that tell the “organizer” how to manipulate the feelings of the people. Before I list Alinsky’s actual “rules of power tactics,” here are a few more of his instructions that we see playing out almost daily in the Democrat Party and their ongoing national temper tantrum, er, excuse me, “Resistance.” “The job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the...
