Ben Crystal: President Oprah

Ben Crystal: President Oprah

By Ben Crystal Like most Americans, I didn’t watch the Golden Globes ceremony the other night. While I have no issue with overfed millionaires honoring themselves as societal icons for pretending to be other people, I have no interest in watching them do it. So I didn’t see Oprah Winfrey deliver a rant which the […]

Ben Crystal: Madame Nikki

Ben Crystal: Madame Nikki

By Ben Crystal Not that the media will mention it much, what with their busy days of tail-chasing over President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, but U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has been flat-out killing it lately. Come to think of it, the dominant performance of a strong, determine and intelligent woman — […]

Ben Crystal: Un-funding the UN

By Ben Crystal $1.2 billion. That’s how much you and I kick in to the United Nations every year. Thanks to America’s status as the financial heavyweight champions of the world, each year Joe and Joan Taxpayer contribute enough of their paychecks to the Mos Eisley of geopolitics to fund the approximate annual cost of: […]

Ben Crystal: Taking the cakeshop

By Ben Crystal Meet Mohammed. The fifth generation of his family to call the United States home, Mohammed lives the kind of life familiar to most Americans. He raises his kids, pays his taxes and looks forward to the next barbecue with his friends. Like millions of Americans, Mohammed owns a small business. “Mohammed’s House […]

Ben Crystal: Party of women

Ben Crystal: Party of women

By Ben Crystal I’ve said it before, and I’ve taken a ration of guff for it. But I’m going to say it again anyway: Roy Moore is a creep. I know this because non-creeps don’t compare themselves to the parents of our risen Lord to deflect charges that they carry torches for underage girls. Non-creeps […]

Ben Crystal: Say no, Moore

Ben Crystal: Say no, Moore

By Ben Crystal It’s time to cut Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore loose. I realize he was a better choice — from a purely political standpoint — than his primary challenger, Luther Strange. Strange is neither a villain nor a hero, but his ties to disgraced ex-Alabama Governor Bentley, in combination with his association with […]

Ben Crystal: Control THIS, gun grabbers!

Ben Crystal: Control THIS, gun grabbers!

By Ben Crystal The gun-grabbers could have gone completely squirrel-monkey insane. Following the carnage which unfolded in Sutherland Springs, Texas, they could have turned the victims into sock-puppets for their gleeful virtue-signaling. They could have responded to Devin Patrick Kelley’s evasion of the myriad laws designed to prevent his atrocity by immediately demanding all sorts […]

Ben Crystal: Next time, just go with sharks with laser beams on their heads

Ben Crystal: Next time, just go with sharks with laser beams on their heads

By Ben Crystal Election 2016 featured all the benchmarks of a secret agent yarn. Campaign officials and political party flacks conspired with Russian agents to rig the 2016 U.S. presidential election. There were secret meetings in Moscow, wiretaps, shady document exchanges, payoffs and even a really twisted sex scandal. Turncoats operating at the highest levels […]

Ben Crystal: Killing Sergeant Johnson

Ben Crystal: Killing Sergeant Johnson

By Ben Crystal According to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D- Awesome Hats), President Donald Trump told the widow of Sergeant La David Johnson, who, along with three of his fellow soldiers, was murdered by Islamic terrorists in Niger, “He knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.” According to Trump, […]

Ben Crystal: How Harvey dooms the Democrats

Ben Crystal: How Harvey dooms the Democrats

By Ben Crystal Ex-Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein — patron of the arts, promoter of progressives, mentor to movie stars and Democratic Party ATM — is also a blue-ribbon-at the-4-H-show-class pig. That’s right, one of the most powerful people in an industry which is dominated by, and perpetuates, every ugly stereotype imaginable, is a real-life avatar for […]
