SEATTLE’S NEW VOUCHER SYSTEM

How are those nice politicians in Seattle generating campaign funds these days? Ed Morrissey, writing for hotair.com, advises us of a truly innovative way politicians in Seattle have come up with to separate the suckers, er, voters, from their money: “There’s a sucker born every minute,” P.T. Barnum once observed, but the rate may be considerably higher in Seattle. Yesterday the city began...

WHY THE PUBLIC NO LONGER TRUSTS MEDIA

Here, in its entirety, as pulled from John Hinderaker’s article at powerlineblog.com, is the initial Associated Press report of an ugly incident which took place in Chicago two days ago. After you read it, I will tell you what actually happened; what the AP intentionally left out: Chicago police say they are investigating a video circulating on social media that shows several people beating...

KAEPERNICK AND THE LEN ESHMONT AWARD

The San Francisco 49er football team has bestowed the Len Eshmont award on its quarterback, colin kaepernick. In case you are wondering what that is,  it is an honor given to the team member who “best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team.  Eshmont, who scored the first touchdown in 49er history (1946), died of...

“TRUMP LEAVES MEXICO WITHOUT 3,600 JOBS”

The title of this blog – which, according to the Associated Press, is the headline of an article in Mexico’s “El Universal” newspaper… …is the blog itself. What more do you need to know, other than the fact that, at least to this newspaper (and, if you read the article, other venues as well) the jobs being exported from the United States to Mexico belong to...

NOTE TO BARACK “I WOULD HAVE WON A THIRD TERM” OBAMA

From Steven Shepard’s article at politico.com (which was placed 13 paragraphs down, after Shepard used other data to beat up on Trump, just in case anyone might think this was positive news): The poll also shows voters evenly divided on a recent point of contention: whether they would rather have President Barack Obama continue for a third term – which is prevented by the 22nd Amendment...

THE ISRAELI EMBASSY MOVE

Making good on a promise of Donald Trump’s – one which they obviously are in full accord with – Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) have drafted legislation which will move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem… …the same Jerusalem that the United Nations, with the full complicity of Barack Obama and his administration...

OF (SUPPOSEDLY) ALT-RIGHT, WHITE NATIONALIST WEBSITES AND PUBLISHERS WHO DARE TO FEATURE A GAY CONSERVATIVE

Can someone tell me what makes breitbart.com a purveyor of anti-Semitism and White nationalism? I’ve been reading that website for years.  I’ve often quoted from it in this blog.  It was founded by a Jew (Andrew Breitbart) and has had numbers of Jewish contributors.  What am I missing here? Well, Claire Fallon of huffingtonpost.com thinks it is all of those things.  And she has...

THE RUSSIAN “HACK” – OR WAS THERE ONE?

The previous blog quoted from an article at americanthinker.com. So does this one, which takes apart the increasingly ridiculous-looking claim that Russia somehow hacked last year’s presidential election. From a lengthy but eminently worthwhile article written by longtime Washington defense analysts Stephen G. Bryen and Shoshana Bryen (yes, they are husband and wife): It should be noted that...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Rabbi Aryeh Spero, writing for americanthinker.com. Here is Rabbi Spero’s take on last week’s UN vote – the one Barack Obama and John Kerry apparently orchestrated – which we abstained on, so that this Useless Neutered body could essentially tell Israel it no longer exists in its present form, and the form it does exist in will be...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from an editorial in today’s Los Angeles Times, which excoriates Republicans for holding up so many of Barack Obama’s judicial appointments – most notably that of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Hard though it may seem to believe, this was within that very same editorial: Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee...

MEGYN THE MOST FOR HERSELF

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News. According to Jim Rutenberg’s article in the New York Times – who takes pains to assure us of how awful this is for Fox – she will be taking “a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political programming and...

MORE TRUMP JOBS?

From Berkeley Lovelace Jr.’s article at CNBC: Ford Motor said on Tuesday it plans to cancel production of a $1.6 billion plant in Mexico, and will instead invest $700 million in Flat Rock, Michigan. The U.S. auto giant said it will add 700 direct new jobs in Flat Rock to produce high-tech electrified and autonomous vehicles, plus the Ford Mustang and Lincoln Continental. Now:  do you...

MIKE BARNICLE LEARNS A LESSON ABOUT MESSING WITH KELLYANNE CONWAY

Today, “Morning Joe” regular Mike Barnicle decided to have at it with Trump Campaign Manager, now senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway. Big mistake. How big?  Here’s the transcript: MIKE BARNICLE: Now, do you or do you not have a replacement plan ready to go, ramped up, ready to go, say tomorrow? KELLYANNE CONWAY: We have pieces of it that we need to — BARNICLE: —...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from a rich source of material for anyone who blogs, named Rosie O’Donnell. You may remember Ms. O’Donnell as a highly successful daytime TV host whom media called “The Queen Of Nice”. If so, I commend you on your memory, given that, since then, she has gone nowhere but downhill and is now a bitter, foulmouthed has-been who seems to be in a...

THE NO-JEWS “PEACE PLAN”

A two-minute speech by Benjamin Netanyahu on Jewish settlements is worth more, in my opinion, than a ____minute speech (fill in any number you care to) by Barack Obama on anything. With apologies to Scott Johnson at powerlineblog.com – whose latest commentary, complete with video is posted below (and is too short to excerpt) – I urge you to read/see/hear why: Palestinian Authority...
