TRUMP AND NEGATIVE PRESS

I had a facebook argument yesterday, based on a comment I made about someone else’s political comment (I rarely put anything political on facebook anymore).  During that argument, I was assured, in less than pleasant times, that Barack Obama was treated much worse as President than Donald Trump. The person making this less than pleasantly worded assurance told me that Mr. Obama received...

Seth Moulton announced he won’t partake in the moment of silence on the House floor for the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas Monday, arguing Congress should instead be taking action on gun control. “As...

THE NFL RATINGS DROP? WHAT RATINGS DROP?

Leave it to the New York Times to assure us that the drop in National Football League ratings isn’t really a drop, and doesn’t really have anything to do with players overtly disrespecting the flag and the National Anthem. I kid you not.  That is the basis of Kevin Draper’s article from a week ago – which I just saw today (sorry about that). A key excerpt: Ratings for the...

THE FERGUSON EFFECT

Is there a “Ferguson Effect”?  Has violent crime spiked significantly in urban, primarily Black, areas, because law enforcement, fearful of the repercussions for doing anything that might fairly or unfairly be construed as less than 100% correct, are backing off and not policing as aggressively? Well, here is some of the evidence, offered in Will Racke’s fact-filled and highly...

THE DEMOCRAT-ASSOCIATED PRESS

How far has the Associated Press fallen? How far is it moved from the reasonably neutral source for news it once was to the platform for Democrat talking points it has now become? John Hinderaker’s latest piece at powerlineblog.com provides chapter and verse of the answer to those questions.  And they are not pretty. Mr. Hinderaker goes into detail showing how AP “reporter”...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Bernie Sanders.  It is taken from an essay he wrote for his own senate websited in 2011. This is what Mr. Sanders – who aspired in 2016, and might again aspire in 2020 to be President – had to say about the United States economy: “These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador...

THE OPPRESSION NFL PLAYERS – AND BLACLIVESMATTER FRAUDS – DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT

The following map comes to us from Max Fisher’s article in the Washington Post – from four years ago (October 17, 2013 to be exact).  It shows that according to a credible international agency, there are about 30 million slaves toiling in countries around the world (my guess is that there is no real way to check the number, and 30 million is a gross understatement, but that’s...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from J. J. Goldberg, writing for the staunchly leftist Jewish Daily Forward.

CARMEN USELESS CRUZ?

Carmen Yulin Cruz is the Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico. She is a Democrat, and an avid leftist – who has, among other things, sung the praises of oscar lopez rivera, the FALN terrorist released from jail for no good reason by President Obama, on his way out the door. Days after Puerto Rico was ravaged by hurrican Maria, Mayor Cruz was singing the praises of President Trump and FEMA for...
