COVID & China Have Exposed How Globalism’s Virtues Were Exaggerated All Along

By Bob Ehrlich | May 24, 2020

COVID & China Have Exposed How Globalism’s Virtues Were Exaggerated All Along During my twenty years in public office, I would regularly take batting practice on the hypocrisy of the business community. Why, I would ask, do business interests regularly write checks to politicians who oppose job creators, while liberal special interests reject such game…

Polarization a Result of Policies, Not Partisanship

By Bob Ehrlich | May 21, 2020

Polarization a Result of Policies, Not Partisanship by Bob Ehrlich One of my great frustrations is to watch how often the media confuse policy differences with partisan differences. And at no time has it been more important to recognize that our deeply polarized nation is a result of the former. It’s not that partisanship is…

Bob Ehrlich: FBI’s Treatment of Flynn a Wake-Up Call To All Americans

By Bob Ehrlich | May 12, 2020

I awakened last Thursday to good news: Justice had finally been afforded to Gen. Michael Flynn. Finally, I thought, enough of the facts had been brought to light that even haters would surely see how poorly the 33-year veteran, three-star general had been treated.

The following is not another analysis of an unbalanced mainstream media. We know the establishment leans left on its best day, and really hates this president as much for his conservative record as for the way he treats them. Neither is it another rendition of how much additional media protection Democratic presidential nominees are accorded at the…

COVID Proves China – Not Russia – Is World’s Most Formidable Authoritarian State

By Bob Ehrlich | April 11, 2020

“The capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” This familiar quote, widely attributed to Vladimir Lenin (though likely spurious), remains a central tenet of Marxist/Leninist thought. And nowhere is the assurance contained therein more engrained than in the rhetoric and policies of the People’s Republic of China. President Xi Jinping has…

Bob Ehrlich: Coronavirus Offering Students a New Opportunity To Learn

By Bob Ehrlich | April 5, 2020

Millions of America’s best and brightest students have returned home only midway through their spring semester.
