THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from CNN “New Day” host Alysin Camerota.  And it is fascinating. On today’s show, Ms. Camerota, provided us with a brilliant analysis of why the money being handed out by corporations immediately after President Trump and Republicans passed their tax overhaul (without so much as one Democrat vote) is a nefarious plot. You read that right.  A...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Fred Barnes, Executive Editor of The Weekly Standard.  They are the lead-in to a very informative, very logical and very telling article about how badly the Democrats’ so-called “resistance” strategy is failing. Here they are: Shocked by Donald Trump’s election, Democrats adopted a strategy of resistance that’s simple and blunt:...

MICHAEL HOROWITZ AND THE REAL DEAL

Do you know who Michael Horowitz is? Most people, I am sure, do not.  But I would bet body parts most everyone will in the coming months. Michael Horowitz, you see, is the Department of Justice (DOJ) Special Council.  And he has spent the last year accumulating evidence of impropriety during the 2016 presidential election. – not as a “deep state” Democrat looking to nail...

THE WASHINGTON POST’S NIGHTMARE

Paul Mirengoff, in his typically excellent analysis at powerlineblog.com, makes absolute mincemeat of yesterday’s Washington Post lead story about the Mueller investigation Star Chamber.  He thinks they’re panicked over there…and I think he’s got a point. Here are its first three paragraphs: The Washington Post is worried. The lead headline in today’s paper edition...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph comes to us from Andrew McCarthy, former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and current contributor to, among other media outlets, National Review.

AND, THE WEEK AFTER THAT UN VOTE ON JERUSALEM….

Some of my fellow old-timers might remember those long-ago Pepperidge Farm commercials of many years ago, with the flinty New Englander spokesperson proclaiming “Pepperidge Farm remembers” (extra points if you can name him.  I’ll spill the beans at the end of the blog). Well, last week our United Nations Ambassador, Nikki Haley, took a page from his book and assured the...

DID PRESIDENT TRUMP ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING THIS YEAR?

The answer?  For better or worse, he has accomplished a ton – even though a good many “journalists” – either from ignorance or Trump hatred – are telling you otherwise. Want something more than my opinion on the subject?  OK. Here is an enumeration of what Trump has accomplished in 2017, compiled by CNN’s Michael Smerconish – no fan of Trump’s by...

THE PALESTINIAN JERUSALEM INTIFADA THAT (AT LEAST SO FAR) WASN’T

When President Trump announced the move of our Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the New York Times, among countless other media venues,assured us it would set the Muslim world – most especially Palestinian Arabs – on fire. But did it? Excerpted from the Times’ article, written by Isabel Kershner: Since President Trump’s recognition this month of Jerusalem as...

TAX LEGISLATION: WHO BENEFITS

The following two tables come to us from the Tax Policy Institute – a left-leaning organization that is perfectly happy to attack President Trump and Republicans if given the chance. They don’t need much of an introduction or explanation, so let me just put them up: look at the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act by the Tax Policy Center, through 2025:     And, yes, Democrats, at...

In this day and age of Christians being attacked, driven out and killed in countries around the world, I thought you might be interested in knowing how they make out in a country that is so deeply hated by so much of the rest of the world. Here is this year’s greeting from Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu: The key segment: “I’m very proud to be the Prime Minister of...

CATALAN INDEPENDENCE UPDATE

Remember the Catalonia province of Spain?  Up in the Northeast corner, and containing, among other significant locations, the city of Barcelona? Remember how there was an illegal vote for independence from Spain, and a majority said we’re outta here?  And how Spain stopped the secession in its tracks and caused the vote’s progenitor, Carles Puigdemont, to flee the country and...
