THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph come to us from a lengthy article at espn.com, written by Seth Wickersham and Don Van Natta Jr., about the National Football League (NFL) and the consequences of its players disrespecting the American Flag and National Anthem. This very informational article covers the October 17th meeting between the league and player representatives.  It is well worth reading if your...

WHY IS ROBERT MUELLER STILL THE “INDEPENDENT COUNSEL”?

When Robert Mueller stacked his staff with Democrat supporters, including several who had donated specifically to Hillary Clinton (no hint of partiality there!) it was clear that this investigation was compromised. Now we know – those of us who don’t rely on network news for all our information – that, as FBI Director during Barack Obama’s presidency, he was deeply...

FROM THE REPUBLICAN ELECTION COMMITTEE…

Let’s start with the following quote from Maxine Waters, when she spoke at South Carolina’s Orangeburg County Democrats’ 19th annual cook off: “We’ve had to make a lot of sacrifices in the history of this country, you all know that.  We’ve had to fight for everything we have. “And you think we’re going to stand back and let something like 45 take it away from us? I say...

SILENT TRUMP SUPPORTERS?

Interesting research finding from Zogby Analytics, regarding the disconnect between Donald Trump’s polling and his election results. Here is the table and part of Zogby’s analysis.  If you want to read it all (and you should), click here: Zogby Analytics asked voters the following question, “Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: Even though I tell people I do...

WILL MAINSTREAM MEDIA TRY TO CONCEAL THIS TOO?

What is the next Christopher Steele/Russian dossier bombshell? Kimberley A. Strassel, writing for the Wall Street Journal,  may have the answer. Read this excerpt from her latest commentary and decide for yourself: The Fusion GPS saga isn’t over. The Clinton-DNC funding is but a first g limpse into the shady election doings concealed within that oppo-research firm’s walls. We now know...

THE SILVER PLAN INCREASE

From John Sexton’s article at hotair.com: Yesterday Avalere Health published a report on premium increases for 2018 and came up with an average 34% increase for silver plans, which are by far the most popular. A significant contributor to that increase (~14%) is President Trump’s decision to cut off cost-sharing payments to insurers. If not for that factor the rate increase would likely...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote, and it is a stunningly ignorant one, comes to us from Tom Perez, Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). While speaking at Indiana University law school (no, protesters didn’t try to shut him down; he is sufficiently hard-left for them), Perez actually said this: “The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution. It doesn’t have to be...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Paul Mirengoff, writing for powerlineblog.com. Let me put them up, and see if you draw the same conclusion I do (though I’ve alluded to this likelihood in previous blogs as well): When Team Clinton enlisted Christopher Steele it knew he would rely on Russian sources. Indeed, it must have counted on him to do so. Steele has an extensive background...

THE IRS SCANDAL: PROVEN

Here is another scandal our hopelessly compromised mainstream media have ignored for years – which now moves from the “Captain Obvious” phase (i.e. everyone knew damn well it happened) to the proven phase. Here is the first part of a statement issued, yesterday, by the invaluable Judicial Watch organization (but please use this link to read the rest – it’s just as...

THE ORPHAN DOSSIER

Success has many fathers, failure is an orphan:  Anonymous (though there are many claimed attributions) From Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb’s article for the suddenly (ashamed into it?) relevant CNN: Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz both privately denied to congressional Russia investigators...

IS CNN TRYING TO DESTROY WHAT IS LEFT OF ITS REPUTATION?

In the annals of “fake news”, this entry, by CNN, has to go down as one of the all-time classics. Hillary Clinton is now denying that she knew anything about the  Christopher Steele dossier being paid for by her campaign. Let’s start with the fact that anybody who believes she did not know about/was not advised of and consulted about, an opposition research dossier with...

GOLDEN GOOSE DEATH WATCH (CONT.)

From Michael McCarthy’s article In the Sporting News: The NFL’s once-golden network TV numbers continue to drop.  NFL games averaged 15.1 million viewers through Week 7, according to Nielsen data obtained by Sporting News. That’s down 5.1 percent from 15.87 million viewers during the same period last season and off 18.7 percent from 18.35 million viewers during the same period...

A “CARTOON” AND A CHANCELLOR’S COMMENTS ABOUT IT

Following are lessons in what is happening in college campuses around the country – not just Berkeley, which happens to be today’s offender – and how a school chancellor should be reacting to them. First lesson: Look at this “cartoon”, featuring a caricature of Professor Alan Dershowitz (a political liberal and supporter of Israel) which was published in...

A QUICK QUESTION FOR “MORNING JOE” (AND MSNBC IN GENERAL)

Now that “Morning Joe” regular Mark Halperin has been accused by five women (so far) of sexual harassment, do you think you might get off your high horses about what went on at Fox News? Oh, one other point to be made:  do you have any doubt that this goes on at EVERY network?  And now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag, that women (and men) will be coming forth to accuse...

WHY IS ROBERT MUELLER STILL AN “INDEPENDENT COUNSEL”?

Now that we know – not think, or suspect, or are trying to find evidence to support, but know – that Robert Mueller was directly involved in the Uranium One deal – the one that gave Putin’s Russia control over something like 20% of our uranium reserves while lining the pockets of Hillary and Bill Clinton and their money laundering operation Clinton...
