PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST MONTH: THE MEDIA COVERAGE

In case anyone still wonders why President Trump has a problem with our mainstream media… …this chart, compiled by the Media Research Center – a conservative outlet (who else is going to compile such a chart), shows just how skewed against Mr. Trump the network news shows really are: Remember when incoming presidents had what was called a “Honeymoon Period”, when...

THE DNC CHAIR COMPETITION, AND WHAT IT MEANS TO JEWS

As you are probably aware, Tom Perez edged out Keith Ellison to become the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair.  And he immediately selected Ellison to be his deputy. Should Democrats be happy about this?  Good question. Should Jewish Democrats be happy about this?  Especially good question. Caroline Glick, writing for realclearpolitics.com, has a superbly thought out, eminently sensible...

AS THE VANDALISM AGAINST JEWISH PLACES OF WORSHIP AND CEMETERIES CONTINUES….

….it is important to note that people of good will, very much including Muslims, are springing into action in an effort to stop this hatred in its tracks. Doubt me?  Read this from the Jewish Telegraph agency. Yes, there are Muslims of good will.  No, it does not make one iota of sense to blame all Muslims for the acts of some. Let’s never forget that people are individuals.  And...

THE SESSIONS RECUSAL: A PYRRHIC VICTORY

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election. Under the circumstances – Democrats, aided and abetted by their lapdogs in the media making “news” out of a no-evidence nothing – it probably was the right thing to do. The sad reality is that what you are seeing is what Democrats and...

WHAT LINDSEY GRAHAM REALLY MEANT

As you may be aware, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into possible links between President Trump and Russia – and that there should be a special prosecutor if any evidence is found that criminal activity took place. This was immediately jumped on by some Democrats as meaning that Senaor Graham was going after...

This is what richmond said about President Trump’s senior counselor, Kellyanne Conway – a married woman with four children – while speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner. Referencing Conway’s...

CLAIRE McCASKILL: LIAR

Senator claire mccaskill (D-MO) is a liar.  A liar who is lying in an effort to take out Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. How do I know this for a fact?  Because – with a major hat tip to Paul Mirengoff of powerlineblog.com – we find that, mccaskill tweeted: “I’ve been on the Armed Services Com for 10 years. No call or meeting w/ Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call...

A NEWS STORY THAT MOST MEDIA WON’T BE COVERING

As the Jeff Sessions non-story percolates, I thought you might want to see a real one – one that, I’m betting, will not get far beyond the coverage found in Melissa Jacobs’ article at Fox News – the first part of which is shown below: The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according...

THE LATEST FAKE ATTACK ON TRUMP’S ADMINISTRATION

Now it’s Jeff Sessions Mainstream media suddenly have “discovered” that (gasp!!!) Jeff Sessions had two – not one, but two – meetings with Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations last year. (NOTE:  there’s a reason “discovered” is in quotations.  Keep reading.) OMIGOD. A U.S. Senator meeting with the Russian ambassador to the UN. And...

DOES RAHM EMANUEL REALLY BLAME DONALD TRUMP FOR CHICAGO’S DEVASTATION?????

These quotes were voiced by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, after President Trump’s speech: We have repeatedly made specific requests of the administration for greater law enforcement integration and resources; a higher priority placed on federal gun prosecutions; and funds restored toward mentoring and after-school and summer jobs programs that have proven to be positive alternatives for our...

THE NEW CHUCK SCHUMER

Despite differences with him on a good many (far from all) issues, I used to have a great deal of respect for Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY). But now, as Senate Minority Leader, he has managed to run through about 98% of my good will…and the other 2% is hanging by a thread. Mr. Schumer’s actions since filling Harry Reid’s shoes – not very big shoes – are making them...

WHICH MEDIA VENUE COMES CLOSEST TO BEING TRULY NEUTRAL?

All news venues would have you believe they are the best of the best.  The true, fiercely neutral arbiters we should all rely on. But are there any objective criteria to measure this? Well, how about the following, excerpted from Joe Concha’s article at thehill.com: A new analysis by a nonpartisan media research firm shows that just 3 percent of the reports about President Trump that...

THE “WOMEN IN WHITE” STRATEGY

This – so help me, I’m serious, folks – is the Democrats’ idea of how to get themselves back to major-party status:   See, Democrat congresswomen dressed in white.  Dozens of them. Why?  To remind us of the women’s suffrage movement (a hot topic at every dinner table, I’m sure), and to demand that Donald Trump does not reverse women’s...

TRUMP VS. THE OSCARS: NO CONTEST

I’ll make this short and to the point. -The Oscars – aka The Trump Hate-Fest – drew approximately 33 million viewers. -Donald Trump’s speech to congress – no entertainers, no glitz, just a political speech – drew 40 – 45 million viewers. That speaks for itself. End of blog.

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from that cornucopia of dishonest political BS, Nancy Pelosi. Here is her advice on how fellow Democrat House members should address friends who feel differently: “The way I told my members: It’s like telling your friend the guy she’s dating is a jerk. You can’t tell her that. She has to find out for herself. You can give her clues and...
