PELOSNOOZE

Watching Nancy Pelosi barfing out the same old, stale talking points about TrumpCare that she has been using for every Republican proposal since Taft administration (or so it seems)… …and wondering how Democrats can keep trotting her out to do this, even as she has overseen Democrats becoming the minority party in both houses of congress, Governorships and state houses. She has all...

NOTHING TO SQUAWK ABOUT?

A woman is dead and another injured.  That is not funny. Which is why I’m ashamed to have laughed.  But I have to be honest and tell you I did.  See if you do too. Excerpted from a story at heatst.com: A man in Italy has been accused of murdering his next-door neighbor because she trained her pet parrot to insult him. Ignazio Frailis, 46, from Capoterra, Sardinia, allegedly stabbed...

THE SAINT LOUIS POST-DISPATCH: FORMERLY A NEWSPAPER

The Saint Louis Post-Dispatch has just dispatched one of the very few writers it employs who is not left of center:  Stacy Washington. I thought you’d like to see why.  So instead of posting excerpts from her latest – and last – column for the paper, I am posting every word of it. See if you can find a reason, other than not wanting readers to be exposed to her point of view...

COMEY. TIME TO GO?

“Great minds think alike.  Of course, so do idiots.  But we won’t talk about that”:  Ken Berwitz Yes, I am, to the best of my knowledge, the coiner of that sobering “let’s not get too full of ourselves” thought. But watching a portion of James Comey’s testimony yesterday, then seeing more of it summarized on cable news networks, I thought of another...

A BANNER WEEK FOR THE TRUMP RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN

If Donald Trump decides to run for re-election in 2020, this has been a banner week for his campaign. And, ironically, the two most important boons to his prospects are a universally known Democrat politician and a smug, smirking left wing entertainer – neither of whom can stand him. First we have Hillary Clinton, back in the spotlight and doing what she does best:  deliriously thrilling...

A FIRST FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES

Today’s New York Times has two editorials.  One of them concerns the deplorable condition of Penn Station and the other involves industrial fishing off the African coast. Why is this notable?  Because it is, to my remembrance, the first issue since Donald Trump became President that does not have at least one editorial condemning him for something. Not to worry – the op-ed page and...

SUSAN RICE: DUCKING TESTIMONY

What a great opportunity for susan rice. She was asked to testify before the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, on what she knows about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.  This would be her big chance to blow the lid off of the collusion between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. So why is she refusing to do so? Excerpted from Victor Morton’s article for the...

FINALLY, A NETWORK SPEAKS UP ABOUT COLBERT

Nothing at all on last night’s network news. But this morning, there was a report on the Today Show – whose Tonight Show competes with colbert and would benefit if he went bye-bye (Transcript and commentary by newsbuster.org’s Kyle Drennan here). From CBS, the network colbert utterly disgraced?  Not one word.  Don’t say/do anything and maybe it will go...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from blogger Jim Treacher’s latest piece for dailycaller.com.  They concern the disgusting, vile mouthings of stephen colbert – but not from the perspective you might think. Here they are.  See for yourself: If Colbert wants to angrily alienate everybody who disagrees with him, fine by me. I gave up on him years ago — I remember wishing he had...

DAVID AXELROD GETS IT RIGHT

Funny thing about David Axelrod:  when he isn’t touting Barack Obama – whom he has always had a stake in – he is an excellent source of logical, bluntly spoken political analysis. Take his responses to the questions about last year’s presidential campaign posed by CNN co-anchors Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota; questions which attempted to lead Mr. Axelrod toward the...

THE NEW/OLD HAMAS CHARTER

Did you know that the terrorist group currently running Gaza (into the ground), hamas, has come up with “a new charter” to replace the one that states, as a matter of Islamic religious duty, that Israel should be destroyed and all Jews – both there and elsewhere – must be killed? I have read a few reviews of this document, which – in keeping with the “fake...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

Adam Jones is a major league ballplayer, an outfielder for the Baltimore Orioles.  He is Black. On Monday, the Orioles played the Boston Red Sox, at Boston’s Fenway Park. And some number of the “fans” decided that it would be a great idea to scream racial insults at Mr. Jones, including calling him a nigger.  One of them threw a bag of peanuts at him. Jones says this is not...

THE COLBERT NEWS BLACKOUT

I wish I was surprised by this. Having just checked the first four pages of “google”, I can find no major network coverage of stephen colbert’s disgusting, obscene comments about President Trump. That includes CBS, the network Colbert works for. This, despite the fact that both right and left websites (albeit for different reasons) are reaming colbert for what he said. Nope, if...
