THE “GREAT” OBAMA ECONOMIC RECOVERY

How many times have you heard Democrats, and their media echoes, tell you about the great Obama economic recovery? On the theory that it seems as infinite to you as it does to me, I thought you might be interested in a dose of reality. So here it is, via the following excerpt from Eric Eric Morath’s article article in the Wall Street Journal: Even seven years after the recession ended, the...

EBAY: IS THIS ACCEPTABLE?

First, the standards that ebay purports to follow – straight from its own web site: POLICY OVERVIEW We don’t allow items that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual, or religious intolerance, or promote organizations with such views. We’ll also remove listings that graphically portray graphic violence or victims of violence, unless they have substantial social...

MEDIA HANDLING OF THE CONVENTIONS: A COMPARISON

If you watched any appreciable coverage of both political conventions, that title alone probably made you spontaneously laugh out loud, gnash your teeth, or both. But in case you did not, or in case you are unaware of just how enormous the disparity was, Rich Noyes, writing for newsbusters.org – affiliated with the Media Research Center – has put together some of the specifics. You...

MERKEL ON THE ROPES

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is, at least as I write this, sticking to her guns about flooding the country with migrants (NOT “refugees”) from places like Syria and Libya. And now the German people, seeing their country transformed right before their eyes, into a place they do not want to be, are rising up against it. Thousands marched yesterday in Berlin, chanting “Merkel...

WHY DIDN’T DEMOCRATS MENTION THE CLINTON FOUNDATION?

I did not watch either political convention straight through. As such, I did not realize something that was just brought to my attention:  in four days of Democrats rhapsodizing over Hillary Clinton, there was not one word about The Clinton Foundation. Why would that be?  Why would Ms. Clinton’s deep involvement in the charitable organization which bears her name, which, we are told, does...

THE LIVES THAT MATTER TO MEDIA

Which lives matter to media….and which lives do they not give a damn about? Here is a clue, from Alatheia Nielson and Katie Yoder’s article at newsbusters.org: When Patricia Smith, the mother of a Benghazi victim, spoke against Hillary Clinton at the RNC last week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent just 13 seconds on her.The View’s Joy Behar (also on ABC) even called Smith’s...

THE REAL OBAMA ECONOMY

The next time someone regurgitates the Democrat party line to you about how great the economy is under Barack Obama – or whips out one of the “Occupy Democrats” BS-a-thons I get almost daily from several of my leftward friends –  show him/her this: No cute insults, no clever sarcasms, just factual data. See what kind of response you get.

TIM KAINE’S POSITION ON ABORTION

Tim Kaine, currently the Democrat Senator from Virginia, is Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential running mate. Mr. Kaine was on the stage with Ms. Clinton touting the Democrat Party’s position on the Hyde Amendment, currently in place, which bans federal funds for abortion – which is that it should be flat-out repealed. But Kaine, who presents himself as a practicing Catholic...

THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY’S INADVERTENT BOOST FOR DONALD TRUMP

On paper, the Libertarian Party ticket – former Republican Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson and former Republican Governor of Massachussets William Weld – is a potential disaster for Donald Trump and his aspirations to be the Republican President of the United States. That is because, along with their being two former Republicans on the ticket, so many conservative principles (not...

A QUESTION FOR VOTERS

My question: What does it say, when Hillary Clinton’s speech was wildly cheered at a convention where there were no American flags visible until her political party was embarrassed into scrounging up a few, and the mothers of thugs killed by cops doing their jobs got 100 times more sympathy than cops, with wives and children, both White and Black, who were executed in the streets while...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from long-time columnist Cal Thomas. Mr. Thomas has written an analysis of Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech – one which, unlike the love-filled fawning of so many other media people, actually goes beyond the relentless talking points and applause lines to see what she actually was promising. Here is what he reminded us of: What would an...

THE RIO OLYMPICS

The olympic games start in Rio on August 5th, and continue through August 21st. I hope they run smoothly, and are nothing other than magnificent showcases of human talent. But I have no confidence at all that will happen. Not with the zika scourge; Not with the rampant crime Rio is justifiably known for; Not with the olympics’s value as a terrorist target, combined with police and military...

THE LUCKIEST SUSPECT IN SWEDEN

If you’re going to be arrested, be arrested by a Swedish female cop with a great body who is wearing nothing but a bikini. Like this:   You’re looking at Officer Mikaela Kellner, an 11 year veteran of the Stockholm, Sweden police force, arresting a suspected thief – whose name was not mentioned, but probably now has the nickname “Lucky”. You can read all about it...

A RANGE OF OPINION – THEHILL.COM STYLE.

I’ll make this short and to the point. There is currently an article at thehill.com, titled “How did Hillary Clinton do?  Pundits react to speech”. The five “pundits” giving their opinions? -Brent Budowsky:  Democrat, former aide to LLoyd Bentsen; -Lanny Davis:  Democrat and long-time Clinton confidant; -Bill Owens:  Democrat, former congressperson; -Mark...

THE GREAT ECONOMY MR. OBAMA AND MS. CLINTON ARE BRAGGING ABOUT

Here are the last two years, straight from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, via an article at bloomberg.com… …and here is the entire Obama presidency:   Impressed? For two years, not one quarter has even 3% growth…with the last three averaging less than 1%. Great, Mr. President and Ms. Clinton.  Just great. For seven and a half years Democrats have told us that Barack...
