TAVIS SMILEY: NOT SMILING ANYMORE

The latest (but, almost certainly, not the last) media/entertainment/political figure caught in the sexual harassment net is long-time PBS commentator Tavis Smiley. And, in his case, if the allegations are true he richly deserves the take-down. From Daniel Holloway’s article at variety.com: The investigation found credible allegations that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with...

WHEN DOES ROBERT MUELLER SPEAK UP?

Earlier this month, I started referring to Independent Counsel Robert Mueller and his staff as a Star Chamber, on the grounds that it is stacked with donors to the Democrat Party in general and Hillary Clinton in particular – which makes its ingoing bias self-evident. Now the Wall Street Journal has published an editorial calling Mr. Mueller out on the extent of this bias.  Here are its...

HOBBY LOBBY AGAIN…

As long-time readers may recall, four years ago I wrote about the fact that Hobby Lobby had opened a location in Marlboro, New Jersey (about 25 – 30% Jewish), but was offering no Chanukah or Passover goods of any kind. (Hobby Lobby is owned by Evangelical Christians, but the store itself is presented as secular). The blog went viral, I wound up doing a lot of media, and eventually the...

DONALD TRUMP VS. KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND

This is what President Trump tweeted after Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called for him to resign over allegations that he had sexually harassed women: Donald J. Trump  ✔@realDonaldTrump  Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything...

DID PETER STRZOK AND LISA PAGE DISCUSS ASSASSINATING DONALD TRUMP?

As far-fetched as the title of this blog seems, it may have a basis in reality. Read the following excerpt from Chuck Ross’s piece at dailycaller.com and judge for yourself: Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected...

TRUMP HATRED IN FULL VIEW

USA Today has published an editorial about President Trump that goes far beyond simple opinion.  It shows undiluted, unequivocal hatred for him, nothing less. Does Mr. Trump give the editorial board at USA Today ammunition for this editorial?  Yes he does.  Donald Trump is truly his own worst enemy.  He has the thinnest of skin, the loftiest of ego, and a twitter account – a disastrous...

THE JONES WIN

Doug Jones has scored a major upset and defeated Republican Roy Moore in Alabama’s special Senate election.  The winning margin was about one and a half percent. But Roy Moore was not the biggest loser last night.  That dubious title belongs to Donald Trump – who, in the last weeks, tossed his support to Moore. It can be argued that Roy Moore was such an awful candidate that even...

HOW MUCH DOES THE MUELLER STAR CHAMBER REEK?

This much. The following exchange, as shown in his latest blog, is between pjmedia.com’s Glenn Reynolds and Joshua Sueve,  of the special counsel’s press office: Reynolds: I’m hearing from a source that Lisa Page was involved in approving Peter Strzok’s warrant requests to the FISC and possibly elsewhere. Can you confirm or deny if this was the case? And please tell me what her...

OUR COMPROMISED, PARTISAN FBI & DOJ

It kills me to write this blog.  But, based on the FBI ‘s and the DOJ’s behavior over the past two years – and, now, the FBI Deputy Director’s sudden non-availability at a house hearing – I don’t know how to address them any other way. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was to have testified before the House Intelligence Committee today.  But he will not do...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from David Haransyi, writing for thefederalist.com. They concern a subject we have covered pretty completely at this blog, I think:  mainstream media’s serial dispensing of Fake News during the Trump administration – which, instead of resulting in contrition and a more serious effort to check stories before they are put out, has resulted in the...

ANOTHER “SEXUAL HARASSER” IS CANNED.

This time it is Ryan Lizza, a major reporter for The New Yorker. A woman has come forth claiming Mr. Lizza sexually harassed her.  He denies it. But since the new mantra is that all women who make such allegations must be believed, Lizza is out on his ear.  No proof necessary.  His accuser, by virtue of her plumbing, is inherently worthy of stopping Diogenes in his tracks. OK, now for a dose...
