THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Yamiche Alcindor, a national reporter for that paragon of neutrality, the New York Times. Ms. Alcindor has a fascinating take on who President Trump calls for advice.  On tonight’s “Hardball” show, she told Chris Matthews: “Who he actually pays attention to are all the people he calls up on the phone. Roger Ailes, all these other people...

THE ISOLEP YCNAN POSITION

Just a couple of days ago, upon learning that multiple women – not political enemies but his own staff members – had come forth to describe repulsive sexual behavior by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Nancy Pelosi informed us that Conyers was “an icon” and that he should be afforded “due process” (just like the due process she advocated for Roy Moor….oh...

THE NEW YORK TIMES AS A DEMOCRAT LOBBYING ORGANIZATION

Do you remember when the New York Times was a newspaper, with – at least ostensibly – no partisan ax to grind? If so, you have a terrific memory. As reported by John Hinderaker at powerlineblog.com, the Times, which is dead set against President Trump’s tax proposals, has used twitter to put up contact information for Republican senators who might vote against it, so its readers...

THE CHRISTMAS DECOR ATTACKS

Alfonse D’Amato was a three term Republican senator from New York.  My father, a lifelong Democrat who despised D’Amato, gave me a book to read about him so I would understand how terrible he was. I got as far as the part where the author informed me that not only was D’Amato a problem child, but his dog was no good either.  I stopped reading then, because it was clear that...

THE FINAL PIECE IN ROY MOORE’S SENATE RUN?

To win December 12’s special election to fill the senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, and overcome accusations of moral impropriety, Roy Moore needs a strong turnout.

CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY…

…the same mainstream media which are telling me President Trump’s derisive characterization of Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” because she lied about being a Native American to further her career was racist… …did not tell me  it was racist when President Obama said “My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son...

A “POCAHONTAS” POINT

As mainstream media continue to position President Trump’s (admittedly ill-conceived) “Pocahontas” comment as a racial slur against Native Americans rather than the derisive reference to Elizabeth Warren that it actually was… …it would be nice if a few of them took time out from their Trump hatred to attack Elizabeth Warren for lying about her non-existent Native...

HOW ROY MOORE CAN WIN

I do not want to see Roy Moore in the United States Senate.  But if he wins his race over Doug Moore (whom I also don’t want in the U.S. Senate, albeit for very different reasons), it will be people like Gloria Allred who put him there. How can that be?  How can Gloria Allred, who accuses Moore of writing what she has called a flirtatious entry in a young girl’s high school...
