THE FISA MEMO – BYRON YORK LAYS IT OUT

If you’ve tried to log on to this blog for the past hour or two, I doubt you succeeded in doing so. I don’t know what the glitch was (I’m pretty sure it was nothing nefarious, just some internet issue).  But it saved me a lot of writing.  Because, during that time, I came upon Byron York’s analysis of the FISA memo – which is so well written and complete that I...

THE FISA MEMO

I do not have enough  time at this moment to give the FISA memo the amount of attention it requires. But, from what I now know, it is absolutely devastating.  It appears to be exactly what Republican said it was … which explains why Democrats were so desperate for it not to see the light of day. If the so-called Steele dossier, an unverified piece of opposition research designed not to...

WHAT YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH IF YOU OWN THE MEDIA

Excerpted from Angela Morabito’s article for the Washington Examiner – without further comment, because it speaks so eloquently for itself: Now that Republican leaders are finally addressing chain migration, Democrats and the media have decided that the very name “chain migration” is taboo. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN, “Look what they’re doing with family...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from David Horowitz, writing for frontpagemag.com. Here is Mr. Horowitz’s take on President Trump’s State of the Union Speech…and Democrats’ reactions to it: Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was perfectly pitched for the political moment. He spoke to and for the American people – for all Americans of whatever race, color or...

AGREEING WITH JAMES COMEY

This tweet – yes, it is real – was sent by former FBI Director James Comey: James Comey  ✔@Comey   All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy. 5:51 PM...

DID CODY SHEARER WRITE THE STEELE DOSSIER?

I just read Daniel Greenfield’s stunning commentary at frontpagemag.com. I don’t know if Mr. Greenfield’s suspicions are correct, and doubt I ever will for sure.  But his conclusion – that the so-called Steele Dossier may have been concocted by a long time Democrat smear merchant who has done this before – makes for compelling reading…and has enough...

FOR ANYONE WHO ACTUALLY BELIEVES “POLITIFACT” IS A NEUTRAL SOURCE OF INFORMATION….

…it hired Alan Grayson as a fact- checker. For less than a day, because the outcry was so great that they – shamefacedly, I would hope – unhired him in a matter of hours: PolitiFact  ✔@PolitiFact We sought out a Democrat and Republican to critique our work in order to try to improve the trust and credibility in fact-checking and PolitiFact. It has become clear our...

ADAM SCHIFF’S DESPERATE LAST STAND

How big a jerk is Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) going to make of himself? Somehow I doubt we’ve gotten to his upper limit.  But this has got to be pretty close. Excerpted from Chuck Ross’s article at dailycaller.com: California Rep. Adam Schiff claimed Wednesday that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee altered a controversial surveillance memo after the panel voted earlier this...

JOY ANN REID EXPLAINS WHAT OUR PROBLEMS ARE

This genuinely remarkable tweet, written by Joy Ann Reid, the hard-leftist show host at MSNBC, is meant as a condemnation of President Trump’s State of the Union speech: Joy Reid  ✔@JoyAnnReid  Church … family … police … military … the national anthem … Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Maureen Callahan, writing for the New York Post.  They concern a person who apparently is not through damaging her political party.  Hillary Clinton. As you are probably aware, information came out that, in 2008, one of Ms. Clinton’s female operatives was being sexually harassed by one of her male operatives…and she decided that she...
