THE PUGH STINK GETS EVEN STINKIER

Catherine Pugh is the Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland.  She succeeded Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who declined to run for re-election after the Freddy Gray fiasco. Now it’s Pugh’s turn. As detailed in my blog of April 2, Mayor Pugh is embroiled in a major scandal relating to the sale of a series of children’s books she wrote…and the purchase of 20,000 of them by a company...

THE COLLUSION DELUSION: A LITTLE IMMODESTY

In the past two weeks you almost certainly have heard/seen the term “Collusion Delusion” used by various media people – either to defend President Trump against the charge that his campaign colluded with Russia or to sneer at the claim that he didn’t. But where did that cute little rhyme-description come from? I can’t swear I was the first to use it.    But if I...

JOE BIDEN’S RACIST SENIOR ADVISOR

Yesterday Joe Biden launched his campaign with a shamelessly dishonest reference to Charlottesville, Virginia, in which he joined a great many of his Trump-hating media pals in a flat-out lie, by insinuating that President Trump called neo-nazis and White supremacists “very fine people”. Presumably, this was done to show that Mr. Biden, unlike Mr. Trump, was not a prejudiced man. But...

THE AVENATTI STEALTH ENDORSEMENT

Earlier today I blogged that michael avenatti, the disgraced lawyer, who may be headed for significant jail time (alleged embezzlement, among other things) has endorsed Joe Biden for President. Remember when the networks could not get enough news to put out about avenatti? Well, I just googled “avenatti endorses biden” and checked the first five full pages. Site after site is...

BARACK OBAMA DOES NOT ENDORSE JOE BIDEN…

…and Joe Biden claims he asked Barack Obama not to. Honest.  Here, read it for yourself from David Rutz’s article at freebeacon.com: Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday he had asked former President Barack Obama “not” to endorse him as he formally entered the 2020 race for the White House. “I asked President Obama not to endorse,” he told reporters...

A FITTING ENDORSEMENT FOR JOE BIDEN

As noted earlier today, Joe Biden kicked off his presidential run with a campaign that repeated an odious lie about President Trump calling nazi sympathizers “very fine people”.  Biden is not an idiot; he knows Trump never said or suggested any such thing.  But this is how he decided to launch his campaign anyway. With that in mind, what more fitting endorsement for Mr. Biden could...

THE BIDEN LAUNCH

Joe Biden is now running for President.  Today’s his formal announcement. And if his kickoff commercial – which was shown on this morning’s Today Show – is any indication, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. It basically tells us that Biden is running to save us from Donald Trump, the nazi-sympathizer.  In other words, the ad is predicated on a lie that has been told...

THE UNPARALLELED CHUTZPAH OF HILLARY CLINTON

Chutzpah:  a yiddish-derived word meaning gall, audacity. Synonym:  Hillary Clinton You can say a lot of things about Hillary Clinton.  But you can’t say she doesn’t have chutzpah. No matter how diligently mainstream media try to bury it, Ms. Clinton’s collusion with foreign nationals  – including British (Christopher Steele), Russian (virtually all the sources for his...

WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY: EXCLUSION IN THE NAME OF INCLUSION

Exclusion to promote inclusion. That is a contradiction in terms…in the real world.  But, these days, we have college campuses that subordinate contradictions in terms like this one. Here’s the latest example, via this excerpt from Jennifer Kabbany’s article at thecollegefix.com: Wake Forest University is hosting a series of “listening sessions” for faculty and staff of...

OUT-FOXXED

Did you know that, since State’s Attorney kim foxx (dis)graced Chicago by giving jussie smollett a free pass… …Kiera Ellis, her director of external affairs has resigned? “So what”, you might say.  “People resign all the time”. Yeah, but how about this, pulled from Jazz Shaw’s article at hotair.com: The departure of Ellis comes on the heels of Foxx...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Vermont’s socialist senator, and – at least until tomorrow when Joe Biden might announce – leading Democrat candidate for the presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. At a Monday “town hall” meeting, Senator Sanders was asked whether convicted felons who are currently in jail, should be given the right to vote. He was specifically...

THE WHITE HOUSE WHCA NO-SHOW

As President, Donald Trump has not attended the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) Dinner. This is hardly a surprise, given that the last data I saw showed over 90% press coverage of Mr. Trump has been negative. But until now he has sent members of the administration to attend. However… …last year, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was there, on the...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from the latest commentary by veteran columnist/TV personality Michelle Malkin.  They concern one of the more remarkable – and telling – “controversies” currently in play; one which mainstream media have been very happy to, for the most part, keep under wraps so the general public is unaware of it. And what is this...

CBS NEWS: HOIST BY ITS OWN RACIAL PETARD

Live by identity politics, die by identity politics.  Especially when a disgruntled former employee has what she believes to be a very legitimate identity-politics axe to grind. Whitney Davis spent about 15 years in CBS’s news and entertainment divisions.  Apparently they were not happy years.  And her reason is embodied in the headline of a just-published article she wrote for Variety...

MEDIA’S DOW DISPARITY

On October 3 of last year, the Dow Jones industrial average hit an all-time high of 26,828.39.  But it then dopped precipitously, to 21,792.20 on December 24th. Media, very understandably, were filled with stories of this drop and speculation about how much further down it would go; whether the bottom would fall out altogether and there would be an economic disaster. Well, as I write this, just...
