As much as the media might want to depict Eaton as a “right-wing extremist,” his biography doesn’t lend itself to such a narrative. Unless and until further evidence sheds more light on Eaton’s motive, then, his crime doesn’t help the media’s pin-the-tail-on-the-Republicans game.

Professor David Yamane at Gun Culture 2.0 - THE PROFESSOR IS IN: How do I get started writing a book? (You should be reading Professor Yamane's writing and watching his videos.)

In this video, I answer a question posed on my YouTube channel by denniseckhard73:
Do you have any advice for someone who’s never written a book about how to get started?

Again from The Other McCain - MSNBC Guest Noura Erakat: ‘You Can Support Israel and Hate Jewish People’

Let’s start by agreeing that the ability to nod along with left-wing pretzel logic is pretty much Joy Reid’s only qualification to be on national TV, but then we have to proceed to asking the question, “Who is Rutgers University Professor Noura Erakat?”
