When creating Magic inside my ark, I attached faces to the bylines. Inside my mind's eye, me and my imaginary writer friends would bond...

    I fear that I can not keep up with it. The latest bit of drivel oozing through that funnel of fear called the internet, is airplanes full of thugs in black, coming to hide in shadow and control the mind of Joe Biden. And, undoubtedly, engage in any other mischief that black-dressed shadow dwellers are wont to do. The details of this apparent mind control effort are unavailable but under investigation, much as that famous list of communists in the State Department was being investigated by the right honorable Senator Joseph McCarthy in 1950. I’ve been told many times how history can repeat itself, or maybe it’s just that the scoundrel has a limited number of devices to deceive, distract...

    Virginia has gone dark blue. For years, decades even, the commonwealth — “the Birthplace of Presidents,” as it is sometimes called — was a Republican stronghold (even former Sen. Bob Dole won the state as Bill Clinton won in a landslide in 1996). Until the past few elections, the last time a Democrat won the commonwealth was Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Even this century, Republicans controlled the state: George W. Bush thumped Al Gore there in 2000, then hammered Sen. John Kerry four years later. But things have been changing ever since. Barack Obama crushed Sen. John McCain in 2008, then won again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney by three points. And Hillary Clinton won the state by more than...
    “The strongest voice in America for the law enforcement community is President Trump,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Tuesday. “In his convention, he showcased the cops, victims of crime, family members who had lost their loved ones serving as a police officer,” the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee told “Hannity.” Graham noted that the current period in American history is a “dangerous time to be a cop.” “Criminals have no fear, liberal prosecutors and politicians have no respect for the police.

    HARVEY, Ill. (CBS) — A Harvey man thought calling police to report his stolen car might help get it back. Instead, he believes a series of mistakes by that police department allowed thieves to get away with his car – twice. As CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov reported Tuesday night, it all raises questions about police response in that south suburb. “Luckily, me and my father – when we got outside, they were already gone,” said the victim, Victor, “because they were actually – they all had weapons on them.” And Ring security video shows that at least one person in the group had a gun as they were caught casing a Harvey house before stealing a Red Dodge...

Here are some of the worst...
    When Jacob Blake was shot by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the recognizable pattern of racially-motivated politicization began. Because Jacob Blake is a black man, and was shot by a police officer — specifically, a white police officer — the Democrats immediately declared that this was the result of systemic racism for which they are the only cure. Speaking soon after Blake’s shooting, Joe Biden stated that “What I saw in that video makes me sick,” and “Once again, a Black man — Blake – has been shot by the police in broad daylight with the whole world watching.” Later that week, Blake’s father spoke about an hour long conversation he had with Joe Biden and running mate Kamala...
