THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote, which I will try to type without laughing so hard I miss a couple of keys, comes to us from Keith Olbermann – a man who never seemed to find a media job he couldn’t get fired from. Having been left under less than salutary conditions from (these are the ones I am aware of) MSNBC, ESPN, and Current TV (which is a little like a former major league baseball player...

MICHAEL FLYNN: MUELLER’S LOW-HANGING FRUIT

Robert Mueller, increasingly frustrated over his investigation of collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia going nowhere, is now putting the wood to Michael Flynn. According to an article at ABC News, Mueller and Flynn’s people may now be discussing “a plea deal”. For what? To summarize: -It is over a year since allegations of this supposed collusion were floated.  And...

SELECTIVE SEXUAL HARASSMENT

Rich Lowry, writing for the New York Post, has provided us with an excellent roadmap for what appears to be Democrats’ strategy regarding sexual harassment.  (Please note that my use of the word “excellent” refers to Mr. Lowry’s exlanation, not the strategy). A few excerpts: There are sexual harassers, and then there is John Conyers, the Democrat from Detroit who made...

“POCAHONTAS”: EFFECT AND CAUSE

Effect:  President Trump, while honoring two surviving Native American “code talkers” who were so important in World War II, telling them (and us) that: “You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.” What a needless, classless thing to say.  Another reason I...

HOW TO GO FROM BEING A NURSE TO AN EX-NURSE IN LESS THAN A MONTH

Taiyesha Baker became licensed as a registered nurse on October 30.  She was hired by Indiana University Health. Now she’s an ex-nurse, at least at Indiana University Health – and, I would guess, just about any other place which values human lives. Why? Well, here’s just one reason, from her (since-removed) twitter account: And if you want to see a few more tweets, every bit...

THE EUROPEAN UNION’S CAUSE CELEBRE

The European Union is in crisis.  There is Brexit.  There is the attempted secession of Catalonia from Spain, there is the possibility that Germany’s Angela Merkel will be unseated as Chancellor by an opponent of Germany being a primary source of its funding.

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote – and it is a doozy – comes to us from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and concerns Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) who has been accused by an increasing number of women – many of whom worked for him – of, among other things demanding sex, forcing them to babysit his children, and parading around in his underwear (or less) in front of them. Says Ms...

CAN THE NEW YORK TIMES BE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS?

This, so help me, is the beginning of Michael Vines’ front-page story in today’s New York Times: On its face, the notice sent to 248 county election officials asked only that they do what Congress has ordered: Prune their rolls of voters who have died, moved or lost their eligibility — or face a federal lawsuit. The notice, delivered in September by a conservative advocacy group...

On Wednesday, all charges against Alicia White were dismissed.  She can go back to her job with – at least on paper – an umblemished record. Who is Alicia White?  Ms. White is a Baltimore police officer, one of the six charged in the death of Freddy Gray, a career criminal and drug dealer who was arrested in April, 2015 and who sustained what turned out to be fatal injuries while...

CONGRATULATIONS TO GEORGE H.W. BUSH…

…who, yesterday, became the oldest living ex-president in United States history, at 93 years, 166 days – beating out Gerald Ford (93-165) and Ronald Reagan (93-120). And in case you think it is only Republican presidents who live long lives, Jimmy Carter is just 111 days behind. Politics aside, may they both continue the competition for as long as possible.

THE COLLUSION COLLAPSE

Here’s a little piece of information from Byron York, writing for the Washington Examiner.  It was published almost a week ago…and, to my knowledge, has yet to be denied. See if you think it has any bearing on the Mueller investigation: FBI and Justice Department officials have told congressional investigators in recent days that they have not been able to verify or corroborate the...

STUPIDITY MATTERS (COLOR OPTIONAL)

Could there be a more stupid way of protesting social injustice than this? From Peter Hasson’s article at dailycaller.com: A Democratic state representative in Missouri was among those arrested as part of anti-Black Friday protests in St. Louis. State Rep. Bruce Franks Jr. was among seven people arrested after they marched through the St. Louis Galleria mall, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch...
