HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EMMA MORANO

Let me end the day with a birthday greeting to a very special lady. Happy birthday to Ms. Emma Morano of Rome, who was born, believe it or not, on November 29 1899.  She is the last known living person to have been born in the 19th century. Ms. Morano says she eats two eggs a day and a cookie here and there – but it may be less a function of some secret longevity diet and more because she...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE RECOUNTS

What if they do serious hand recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and – if Jill Stein’s lawsuit prevails – Pennsylvania… … and they find massive voter fraud… …but not on the Republican side? I wonder if Democrats have considered the fact that the recount they are so hot for will take place in locations such as Philadelphia, Detroit, and Milwaukee. See, if...

A QUICK TRIP DOWN MEDIA MEMORY LANE (OR, MORE ACCURATELY, THE MEDIA MEMORY HOLE)

MORE TRUMP HATRED FROM THE (TOLERANT) LEFT

Terrorists will have a long list of targets...

STEYN-STYLE SARCASM

Are you into righteous sarcasm? If so, you will enjoy Mark Steyn’s latest commentary, about media and political reaction to the death of fidel castro, as much as I did. Here’s the beginning: Who knows when Fidel Castro actually kicked the bucket? But this weekend his brother decided to let us in on the secret.

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Greg Abbott, Governor of the state of Texas. Here is his position on sanctuary cities, via a tweet less than 24 hours ago: “Yes. I’m going to sign a law that bans sanctuary cities. Also I’ve already issued an order cutting funding to sanctuary cities.” That does not leave much room for misunderstanding, does it? Do the state legislation...

THE NEW YORK TIMES’S CONSISTENCY OF COVERAGE

Is the New York Times still a newspaper?  Or has it given up any pretense at news reportage and become a propaganda sheet of Democrats and, more generally, the left? The Times has given us many reasons to ask this question over recent years, culminating in the disgraceful cheer-leading it performed for Hillary Clinton throughout the presidential campaign – not on its editorial page, which...

WHAT IF IT WERE TRUMP AND A RIGHT-WING CANDIDATE?

Almost three weeks after the election.  Almost three weeks after Hillary Clinton conceded defeat. Then, suddenly, claiming it is only in the interests of making sure the election was fair, Jill Stein, a left wing “candidate” who managed 0.3% of the vote, is demanding a recount in three states (Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania) where Trump won by a small margin… … but...

THE POPE AND CATHOLIC ALLEGIANCE
