The Rittenhouse Verdict and What It Means

On Friday the jury returned a verdict of not guilty on all charges for Kyle Rittenhouse. This is a wonderful result and marks the end of the first part of a nightmare that for Rittenhouse, will likely go on for some time.

Rittenhouse Draws an Honest Judge – With an honest judge and a stumbling prosecution justice may make a rare appearance for Kyle Rittenhouse

The Kyle Rittenhouse trial began last week. For those who aren’t familiar with the case, Rittenhouse was a 17-year-old who was attacked by rioters (aka mostly peaceful protesters) in Kenosha, Wisconsin in the summer of 2020. Rittenhouse shot and killed two of his attackers and wounded a third. What was clearly a self-defense incident resulted […]

CDC Takes Aim at Gun Violence

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was once an agency that the American people trusted without question. I personally have always held that opinion and trusted the CDC as having the last word on public health issues. Events of the last 18 months have drastically changed my view and, I suspect, the same […]
