THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Scott Johnson, one of the uniformly excellent bloggers at powerlineblog.com. Mr. Johnson has given us an overview of the Trump claim that Barack Obama tapped phones at his office building – with a link to an equally excellent piece by National Review’s Andrew McCarthy on the fact – and it is one – that, with all the smoke blown by...

TURNING THE TABLES

Do we know whether Barack Obama, presumably through his politically drenched acolytes at the Department of Justice, tapped phones at Trump Tower during the election? Nope.  We have no evidence it took place other than accusations, so why should we take it seriou…… …..uh, wait a minute.  Isn’t that exactly, precisely the same situation we have regarding accusations that...

TO THE SURPRISE OF ABSOLUTELY NO ONE WHO KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT MAINSTREAM MEDIA…

…the disgusting, crude sexual  “joke” that Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) made about Kellyanne Conway – a married woman and mother of four – has gone unreported by most mainstream media. From Peter Hasson’s article at dailycaller.com:   The New York Times, ABC News and NBC News are all keeping their readers in the dark about a Democratic congressman’s...

AN APOLOGY (SORT OF) TO CNN

My apologies to CNN. Yesterday, I blogged a condemnation of CNN for doing an entire story on the left wing disgraced “journalist” juan thompson, who was arrested for threatening Jewish institutions, without so much as mentioning that thompson was a left wing “journalist” whose own material showed that he hated Donald Trump. I ended with this: That is more than just...

DID THE OBAMA PEOPLE TAP DONALD TRUMP’S PHONE LINES?

Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 46m46 minutes ago More How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate.

HOW IS THE DEMOCRAT “STRATEGY” WORKING OUT SO FAR

As we watch what passes for Democrat “leadership” ignore their duties as elected officials and spend their days trying to take down an elected administration they hate, it is worth noting how their “strategy” is playing out among voters. With many thanks to Andrew Kugle at Washington Free Beacon, here is the answer: Democrats have failed since Election Day in November to...

BILLY JOEL

Our son and daughter (OK, daughter in law, but we don’t think of her that way) gave us tickets to see Billy Joel in concert at Madison Square Garden. Last night was the night. It was Mr. Joel’s 41st consecutive sellout of The Garden – a feat that is unheard of in my memory. Something like 20,000 wildly enthusiastic fans were in attendance. And what a show we got. Billy Joel...

WATCHING THE TRUMP/SESSIONS/RUSSIA BS BLOW UP

Now that political junkies, who read more than the headlines (like me – and probably you, since you’ve read this far) know: -Then-Senator Jeff Sessions’ meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were open, above-board and covered by mainstream media that the time; -Now-Attorney General Sessions was not asked if he ever met with the Russian Ambassador,  but if he met with...

CNN IGNORES AN ANTI-SEMITE’S HATRED OF DONALD TRUMP

As you may have read, a “man” named juan thompson has been arrested and charged with anti-semitic threats against Jewish institutions. Many media venues, regardless of their political leanings, have been honest enough to note that thompson is also a Trump hater, who has referred to Donald Trump as Hitlerian. Except for CNN that is. CNN has put out an entire article about thompson...

REP. DAVID CICILLINE: ANOTHER SAFE SEAT DISASTER

Last night I watched part of Tucker Carlson’s (always worthwhile) show on Fox News Channel.  One of his guests was Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), who proceeded to rant and rave until his time ran out about how should not just recuse himself, he should resign, be charged with crimes and presumably (though he did not say it in so many word) do jail time. Carlson tried to ask Cicilline a few...

A RETROSPECTIVE FOR THE RUSSIA-OBSESSED MEDIA

Dear Russia-Obsessed media: I understand that, like your cohorts in the Democrat Party, you desperately want to take down Donald Trump. I understand that you will use just about anything you can find – even a couple of meetings then-Senator Jeff Sessions had with Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations – meetings that were fully open and covered by the press – to try and...

COLIN KAEPERNICK: SUDDENLY A STAND-UP GUY

Remember colin kaepernick, the San Francisco 49er quarterback who kneeled during the playing of the National Anthem, “on principle” (and convinced a number of other NFL players to do the same)? Well, after leading the 49ers to a glorious 2-14 record, he is no longer with the team. He is looking to take that sterling record of success elsewhere. And guess what? kaepernick says that he is now...

AS THEY ATTACK JEFF SESSIONS FOR MEETING WITH THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR…

From Kaitlan Collins’ article at dailycaller.com (certainly not from a mainstream media source: Sergey Kislyak appeared in the White House visitor logs dozens of times when Barack Obama was in office. The visitor logs, which Obama made public in 2009 in a push for transparency, show that the long-time Russian ambassador to the United States visited the White House at least 22 times between...
