STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE: YESTERDAY’S DWS

Did you know that, in the absence of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democrats’ national convention was ushered in by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake? To remind you, Ms. Rawlings-Blake – who will not (can not is more like it) run for re-election, was the genius who said this about the street rioting after Freddy Gray’s death: “It’s a very delicate balancing act...

AND WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT OF RADICAL ISLAM….

….we have this horrific news from France, via Tom Batchelor’s article for London’s Daily Express: A PRIEST had his throat slit and several others were taken hostage after armed men stormed a church in Normandy during morning mass today, as President Francois Hollande said ISIS had declared war on France. The hostage, said to be 84-year-old Father Jacques Hamel, was killed by...

DEMOCRATS AND NON-EXISTENT RADICAL ISLAM

“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned “ISIS,” “Islamic” “terror,” “terrorist,” or “terrorism” during the first day of the convention”  That, readers, is not my conclusion.  It is the conclusion of...

A CONGRESSMAN WITH (ENOUGH) GUTS (TO BEAT HIS WIFE

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), who bills himself as “a congressman with guts”, is locked in a primary battle to run against Republican incumbent Senator Marco Rubio – one that the polls show him well behind in. And now, a month before the August 30th primary, we have this…as excerpted from John Bresnahan, Marc Caputo and Jake Sherman’s article at politico.com: Rep. Alan...

HILLARY CLINTON: OVERQUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT?

Let me start by apologizing to anyone who is now cleaning a spontaneous spew of food or drink off the computer monitor after reading the title of this blog. But please don’t blame me.  I am just quoting one of the convention speakers, Sarah Silverman – a “comedian” who seems to equate ridiculous and profanity-laced with funny…and, dispiritingly, has managed to find...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Marcia Fudge, (D-OH) who was one of the Democrat convention’s early speakers. Here is her reaction to the booing which took place whenever she mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name: “We are all Democrats and we need to act like it.” Uh….Ms. Fudge:  what, exactly do you think they were doing? Marcia Fudge wins Quote Of The Day honors for...

A MESSAGE FROM THE CONQUERED AND COMPROMISED

“I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor. It’s of utmost importance you explain this to your delegations – Bernie.” What you just read was a text message sent by Bernie Sanders to his supporters. Presumably, they were supposed to read it, then show their undying fealty to Mr. Sanders, by immediately piping down and falling in line. But...

BERNIE GIVES IT AWAY

Democrats were at least somewhat retrieving themselves from chaos tonight. While I may disagree with a lot of the politics they espoused, speakers like Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Warren made strong pitches for their points of view.  They connected impressively with the crowd. And then there was Bernie Sanders…who, at least ostensibly, was at the podium to support Hillary...

HILLARY’S 38% PROBLEM

I Just watched New York senator Kristen Gillibrand finish her stint at the mike by assuring us that Hillary Clinton is staunchly in favor of equal pay for women. Funny thing, though; she did not mention anything about the fact that Hillary Clinton’says female staff was paid, on average, 38% less than the men. I wonder why?

THE DEMOCRAT/MSNBC DIVERSION ATTEMPT

I am watching MSNBC coverage of the Democrats’ convention.  And there is Rachel Maddow and a Democrat hack,  busy discussing, with serious faces, where the hacked emails came from. Not one word about what is on the emails, only a desperate attempt to divert attention from them by talking about their source. Here’s a hint for you, Ms. Maddow:  the source is Democrats. The messenger...

THE ICING ON THE DEMOCRATS’ CAKE: A PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER EDITORIAL

Just in case you thought the Democrats’ situation couldn’t possibly get worse….we have the Philadelphia Inquirer – as hard-line a Democrat paper as there is – editorializing about what a disgrace the Democrats in its city are. Here are some key excerpts: With new flags on the Parkway, new lights on the boathouses, and new efforts to shelter the homeless, the Democrats who have run...

THE FACEBOOK “ACCIDENT”

This one goes straight to the “Yeah, right” file. Excerpted from Ken Meyers’ article at mediaite.com: Facebook is chalking some controversial content blocking up as an “accident” following reports that the social media site was forbidding links to theWikiLeaks data dump on the Democratic National Committee. WikiLeaks created a political firestorm over the weekend after they...

HILLARY REHIRES DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ

Thsis has got to be the definition of tone deafness. Debbie Wasserman Schultz just resigned as chair of the Democratic National Committee in disgrace.  Why?  Because it was crystal clear – first by her actions and then based on the emails which have come out, that instead of acting neutrally – her job as DNC chair – she was, in reality, working on behalf of Hillary Clinton...

KEITH ELLISON BEING KEITH ELLISON

Keith Ellison is a congressperson from Minnesota – one who is so full of crap his eyes would be brown no matter how they started out.  In my opinion, borne out by incident after incident, Ellison is a serial liar and fraud, who has spent much of his adult lifetime bamboozling people into believing things about his life that are not true. You can read all about the real Keith Ellison by...
