TWO QUESTIONS (AND ANSWERS) ABOUT THE TRUMP/RUSSIA COLLUSION INVESTIGATION

Question 1:  When was the last time you read or heard a word about collusion between Russia and Donald Trump? Answer:  Probably months ago.  The reason is that, after a year and a half of attacks, insinuations and dire predictions, no one has found evidence that it ever occurred.  Not the Democrat Party (and, god knows, they have searched for it) and not the Mueller investigation Star...

THE PRICE FOR STRAYING OFF THE PARTY LINE

Politico.com, founded by former Washington Post personnel and mostly ensconced in the moderate-left category, is getting hammered. Why?  Because it had the temerity to put up an investigative article critical of the eminently criticism-worthy Iran “deal” cooked up by former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State John Kerry – a man who held the same position as...

ANDREW MCCABE: ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE SHERIFF?

Andrew McCabe, Deputy Director of the FBI, is leaving Dodge.  He’s announced he will hang on (or, at any rate, try to hang on) until March so he gets his full pension benefits. But why is he leaving? The following excerpt from Chuck Ross’s article at dailycaller.com should give you a pretty good idea:  Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe plans to retire from the bureau early next...

A CARTOON THAT SAYS MORE THAN 1,000 WORDS

This cartoon, by the great Michael Ramirez, talks about what then-President Barack Obama purposefully ignored in order to get the Iran “deal” he apparently hoped would secure his name in the annals of foreign policy: Well, he got his name into those annals.  But, for anyone who cares about reality, common sense, or the survival of a number of countries in the middle east –...

CBS THIS MORNING’S TAX FINDINGS

To say the least, CBS News is not exactly a charter member of the Make America Great Again Trump Booster society. So if CBS This Morning  does an investigative report on how the just-passed tax legislation will affect people at different income levels in different parts of the country (a single mother in Cary,  North Carolina, a couple without children in Providence, Rhode Island, a couple with...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Paul Kane’s article in the Washington Post. Mr. Kane believes that the Democrat Party is looking ahead, past the 2018 midterm elections to the possibility of impeaching President Trump and removing him from office.  And the basis for this belief is not at all unreasonable. Here are his first four paragraphs: To fill their top spot on the House...

THE FUNNIEST QUOTE OF THE YEAR?

Sometimes the funniest quotes are the ones not at all meant to be funny. Take this one, from Dr. Richard Vatz, a professor of rhetoric at Towson State University in Maryland. Speaking of the surge in what President Trump (and an increasing number of others, me included) refers to as “fake news, Professor Vatz tells us the following: “I’m certain as one can be certain that there...

On Thursday, after the United Nations a total of 128 members – voted the United States’ embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem “null and void” – which it has zero authority to do – Mr. Tapper made a statement which included these words: “There are plenty of policies and actions that are...

JAMES COMEY’S RESPONSE TO THE BAKER DISAPPEARANCE

In the previous blog, I talked about James Baker’s sudden disappearance as FBI legal counsel…just before he was going to have to testify before congress in that capacity. And now we have this tweet from James Comey, the fired, disgruntled former FBI Director whose leaks (which, it seems evident, were illegally made) were instrumental in the creation of Robert Mueller’s...

JAMES BAKER AND “THE TRUMP PROJECT”

There are many political websites to read, but few that feature someone who puts things together as well as Mark Bradman (aka “Sundance”) at theconservativetreehouse.com. His latest commentary, “New Report: Was FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker Captured By New DOJ Leak Task Force?…” connects a lot of dots regarding the “deep state” efforts on behalf of...

THE ECONOMIC PUNDITS AND THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY, A YEAR LATER

Here’s a little stroll through recent history that should give you an idea of how seriously to take some of the more visible “pundits” when they talk about the Trump Presidency. From Martha C. White’s article for time.com, November 9, 2016 (the day after Donald Trump was elected President): Prominent economists warned investors the day after the U.S. presidential election...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph – and it is a long one (which is good news, because of how much information it contains) – comes to us from Steven Hayward of powerlineblog.com.
