THE LOWER MANHATTAN ATTACK

Initial reports:  A truck mowed down people at a bike lane in lower Manhattan.  A school bus was involved (possibly, the driver drove into the truck to prevent it from continuing. At least 6 dead and 15 injured. Reports – not confirmed, let’s remember-that the driver (who has been captured) screamed “allahu akbar” as the carnage took place. More as it becomes...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

Suppose a White singer demanded that the front row of people who came to see her be all-White; that Black audience members would have to move back.  Suppose several of them refused to do so.  And suppose the organizers of the event apologized for the racism of the situation. Now, hold onto your hats, as you read the following excerpts from David Friend’s article in the (Canadian)...

Today’s paragraphs – and a dose of reality they are – come to us from Matthew Walther, writing for theweek.com. Here is part of what Mr Walther has to say about the Mueller indictments: After months of getting themselves worked up about hearings featuring a hero once accused of rigging the election for Donald Trump and Don Jr.’s inability to sniff out Nigerian prince...

WHY IS TONY PODESTA THREATENING TUCKER CARLSON?

Are you aware that Tony Podesta – Democratic operative and brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, John Podesta –  had his lawyer send a “Cease and Desist” letter to Tucker Carlson, demanding Carlson stop reporting about, among other things, his contention that Mr. Podesta is a key figure in the Mueller investigation (a fact which, though ignored by much of...

THE TODAY SHOW DISGRACE

I just watched the Today Show’s “report” on the Manafort and Papadopoulos indictments. It paints as ominous a picture of Papadopoulos as it can, telling viewers he tried to set up meetings between the campaign and Russians. What it didn’t mention is that the Trump campaign rejected the meetings. That is a disgrace.  The latest in an ogoing series of disgraces that...

RICH LOWRY’S SAGE ADVICE

If President Trump reads one commentary this week, it should be Rich Lowry’s in the New York Post. These excerpts tell him why: With Robert Mueller unveiling his first indictments and plea deal in the Russia case, President Trump should do what’s hardest for him — nothing. The indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates — together with news...

THE PAPADOPOULOS NOTHINGBURGER (CONT.)

As our wonderful “neutral” media continue to try and convince us that the indictment of George Papadopoulos, a minor player in the Trump campaign whose efforts to involve Russians in the campaign never came to fruition are some kind of smoking gun, we have this excellent analysis/explanation by powerlineblog.com’s Paul Mirengoff. Here are a few excerpts – which, I hope...

THE PAPADOPOULOS INDICTMENT

The Trump-hating media are trying desperately to make a big deal out of the indictment of George Papadopoulos, a low-ranking Trump adviser who lied to the FBI about his involvement with Russian operatives. Here is what a breathless Chris Cillizza at CNN is reporting: This paragraph from the FBI’s guilty plea agreement with Papadopoulos is incredible: “In truth and in fact, however...

THE MANAFORT INDICTMENT AND PODESTA DISSOLUTION

Well, well, well. Almost a half a year of scouring everything he could, and what does Robert Mueller come up with? An indictment against Paul Manafort and his associate, Rick Gates, for activities which ended in 2014.  Years before Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. But the nature of the indictments may well had an unintentional fallout. From Tyler O’Neil’s article at PJ...

“SCOOTER” MANAFORT?

Do you remember Lewis “Scooter” Libby? Mr. Libby was Vice President Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff.  In 2005, after Independent Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald spent three years getting nowhere on “Plamegate” – an investigation into the so-called outing of Valerie Plame as a spy (a phony-baloney premise) that Fitzgerald knew the source of within months (Richard...

THE KEVIN SPACEY COINCIDENCE

What does the above title mean?  Here’s your answer, via the first two paragraphs of Karma Allen’s article at ABC News: Actor Kevin Spacey said that he has “loved and had romantic encounters with men” and that he chooses “now to live as a gay man,” after being accused of a sexual advance on a 14-year-old. Spacey’s remarks came in a tweet posted on...

WHITEWASHING BILL CLINTON

Last night, NBC “News” (that has to be put in quotation marks these days) offered viewers a three minute report on women being subjected to sexual harassment in the workplace. As noted by Brad Wilmouth, in his article at newsbusters.org, the report mentioned Donald Trump (based on that 12 year old taped conversation which, though vile and piggish, never indicated he forced himself on...

CATALONIA UPDATE

Here, from Jazz Shaw’s article at hotair.com, is the latest news from either Spain or Catalonia (depending on how you feel about the province’s declaration of independence): As Ed (Morrissey) reported yesterday, Catalonia took the final step of formally declaring their independence on Friday. This led to all sorts of cheering in the streets of that region of Spain, but the jubilation...
