CNN: THE HITS KEEP COMING

You don’t need me for this one. Lucas Nolan, writing for breitbart.com, has the particulars: According to TwitterAudit.com, nearly fifty percent of the followers on CNN’s verified Twitter account are fake. Of CNN’s millions of followers on their verified Twitter account, over 17 million or 48 percent are fake, according to TwitterAudit. Oops. And then we have today’s headline in...

FINALLY: EVIDENCE OF A TIE TO RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTER KISLYAK. ONLY….

….it isn’t President Trump.  It is the lying Senator from Missouri, Claire McCaskill. From Brent Scher’s article at freebeacon.com: Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) used a personal foundation to pay for a dinner she attended at Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s Washington, D.C., residence. The senator had failed to disclose her role in the foundation until earlier...

REPUBLICAN HARDBALL AND THE TRUMP JUDICIARY

Before reading this, please keep in mind that if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency and brought along just two senate seats, the same dynamic would be true, but the parties would be reversed. Ok, now for the blog – which starts with this excerpt from Jennifer Bendery’s and Alissa Scheller’s article at huffingtonpost.com: Most days, it seems like President Donald Trump is...

A REALLY GOOD COMPARISON OF OBAMACARE AND TRUMPCARE

I acknowledge that I am no expert on health care.  Or anything close. But Chris Deaton’s article on the difference between ObamaCare and TrumpCare, at least on the surface, seems so fact-based and so logical, that I recommend you read it (which is why I’m not putting up any excerpts; I hope you’ll use this link and read the entire piece). Nothing else to say, other than I hope...

THE BOTTOMLESS PIT THAT IS CNN

CNN, which has been disgraced by biased reporting and exactly the kind of “fake news” Playboy’s Brian Karem whines that media are being accused of… …has learned nothing. Not content with plumbing the depths this past week, when three of their key people had to resign over a demonstrably untrue story attacking President Trump, now the network is employing Elmo, a...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Brian Karen, who writes for Playboy Magazine. Mr. Karem, it seems, is highly miffed that Donald Trump and his people have negative things to say about the media – those nice folks who have done little but skewer Trump & Co. since he became the Republican presidential nominee and have doubled down since he became President. This came to a head on...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from James Kirchick, writing for tabletmag.com.   His latest commentary discusses the overtly anti-Semitic behavior displayed at a gay pride march in Chicago this past weekend, in which several women carrying gay-themed flags with Jewish stars on them were turned away on the grounds that the march was “pro-Palestinian and anti-Zionist”, and that...

FOX BACK ON TOP

With all the turmoil over at Fox, and the ascendancy of MSNBC (or is it the self-created devastation at CNN), MSNBC had pulled ahead in the cable news network ratings. Not any more. Here are the latest data, from Adweek’s TVnewser...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from former Secretary of State John Kerry.  It was made on July 20, 2014 on NBC’s “Meet The Press, during a discussion of the Obama administration’s “success” in dealing with Syria. “We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out.” That so? Now, as President Trump warns Syria that it had better not use the...

A QUICK NOTE TO ROB REINER

Dear Mr. Reiner; You are a very successful movie director.  Congratulations. Now, do us all a favor; don’t use the celebrity you have gained by directing movies to push your hard-left political opinions.  Most of us do not give a damn what your political opinions are. Thank you.

JACK HELLNER’S FOUR QUESTIONS

What is the difference between the “fier kashes” (four questions) asked about Passover at a seder table, and the four questions asked about ObamaCare by Jack Hellner, in his latest piece for americanthinker.com? The questions asked at the seder are answered, that’s what. With apologies to Mr. Hellner, I am posting the four questions he has asked below.  Please take a look, and...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE CBO TRUMPCARE ESTIMATE

Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued an estimate that, under TrumpCare, 22 million people would lose their health insurance. This is the same CBO that told us ObamaCare would have 24 million clients by 2017….with the actual total coming in at about 12 million. My question:  given it’s history, why would you rely on the CBO for this kind of an estimate? Can anyone...

THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION WITCH HUNT: WHERE WE STAND (AND WHERE WE SHOULD BE HEADED)

Excerpted from a typically excellent Investors Business Daily (IBD) editorial: Scandals: The past few days have seen several interesting developments on the supposed Trump/Russia scandal. But instead of causing further damage to President Trump, they’re making the entire story look like a multilayered smear campaign by Trump’s enemies. Over the weekend, the New York Post reported that...

CNN EXPOSED (PROJECT VERITAS DOES IT AGAIN)

Suppose I told you that the real reason CNN has obsessed over the still-unevidenced claims that Russia and the Trump administration colluded to steal the presidency from Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with the truth or actual news coverage – that it was only because it was generating ratings/making them money?  Would you believe me? Well how about if one of CNN’s Supervising...
