Common Sense Interpretation


There’s A National Emergency On The Border, But Its Not What You Think, John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist

Quote: “…painted a shocking picture of Mexican society in what can only be described as a state of deep decay, even collapse. According to reports from the trial, drug cartels exert influence on everyone, from local police chiefs in border towns to the highest federal offices in Mexico City.”

Is America Headed For A New Kind Of Civil War? Robin Wright, The New Yorker

Quote: “Mines concluded that the United States faces a sixty-per-cent chance of civil war over the next ten to fifteen years…Based on his experience in civil wars on three continents, Mines cited five conditions that support his prediction.”

CS Commentary: Usual liberal perspective, quoting a dubious source like the Southern Law Poverty Center, but still an interesting overall perspective, and insightful opinions, like this quote: “The lesson of the war that should never depart from us, is that the American people have no exemption from the ordinary fate of humankind. If we sin, we must suffer for our sins, like the Empires that are tottering and the Nations that have perished.” – Murat Halstead, The War Claims Of The South, 1867

Carly Fiorina: The Contrary Opinion Against Tariffs (video, right), Fox Business

CS Commentary: We were Carly supporters before we were Trump supporters, and we like her. But, the present round of tariffs has no comparison to Smoot Hawley (see Top 5 Reasons for Current Market Correction). In addition, there is no ‘free trade’ currently, ‘without the tariffs’ (since Europe, China and other nations have unilaterally been putting tariffs on US products for decades). To pretend like there is, is ludicrous. Of course, the Chinese are currently at the table because our tariffs are hurting and will hurt their economy. It is hard to know where Carly is coming from with this argument – another run for President in 2020, perhaps?

The Pope Is The Problem: Francis Has Mobilized Papacy Power Against Justice, Krumholz/Delahunty, The Federalist

Quote: “For all their deference to one another, the majority of the bishops appear to be good men who are seeking to do justice. But the dark center within that silver lining is the pope who commanded them to stand down. There is a rot and a stench coming from the Vatican. The pope is the problem.”

Exclusive Poll: Most Trusted News Anchors, Jeremy Barr, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: Here’s a poll that explains a lot. Americans still don’t get that trusting NBC and CNN anchors means that they are buying into leftist propaganda – not only in presentation, but in selection of the news topics. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams at Fox News score highest in the ‘Some trust’ category. Hmm.

Film Reviews: ‘A Dog’s Way Home’ & ‘The Upside,’ Fox News

The Upside, Film Review, Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: We don’t agree that there are more laughs or more of anything in this blander version of the original. Injecting Nicole Kidman probably negatively offsets the character and plot balance – the original role was not emphasized as much – plus the charisma and chemistry of the main actors is somewhere below that of the original as well. If you want to see a funnier and more seamless version, rent the original French (2nd highest grossing French film of all time), The Intouchables

Quotes Of The Month:

On whether ‘global warming’ is a settled scientific fact:

“Virtually by definition, nothing in science is ‘incontrovertible’ – especially in a primitive and complex field as climate.  ‘Incontrovertibility’ belongs to religion where it is referred to as dogma.” – Richard Lindzen, American atmospheric physicist

“As to ‘the science is settled’; or, there is a ‘consensus’ on the issue. … [S]cience is about facts, experiments and testing hypotheses, not consensus; and science is never ‘settled.’  Indeed, Einstein’s relativity theories are still being tested; e.g.’Lorentz invariance.’” – Prof. Robert M. Carter
