REX TILLERSON’S LEBANON MEETING

With a tip of my imaginary hat to Adam Milstein, here is U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, during his current Middle East swing, being made to wait before speaking with Lebanese foreign minister Gebran Bassil, then President Michel Aoun: In December, it was announced that we will be giving Lebanon $120 million in miltary aid. Why?

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes from U.S. Senator and possible 2020 presidential candiate Kamala Harris (D-CA). After the Parkland massacre, this is what Ms. Harris had to say: “We cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered.” FYI:  this is the same Kamala Harris who supports late-term abortions – when the child is formed...

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RECANTATION

Remember when mass murderer nikolas cruz was a White supremacist? If you’re not sure of the timing, let me be of assistance.  It was when the head of a tiny White supremacist group, who no one in media gave a damn about or would believe a word from, said he was.  And since that was, as the saying goes “too good to check”, the Associates Press, along with countless other media...

AS THE LEFT BLAMES PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR THE PARKLAND MASSACRE…..

….will someone please explain to me what he had to do with it? I await any response from anyone at all. But, while I’m waiting I will note that in 2009 and 2010 there were a total of 18 school shootings (not the BS count touted by media this week, but actual incidents in actual schools with actual shooters trying to hurt/kill students and teachers.)  And during those two years...

THE MUELLER INDICTMENTS

If this doesn’t prove Robert Mueller’s investigation Star Chamber has nothing, and is grasping at any straws it can grab, I don’t know what could. From Dan Mangan and Mike Calia’s article at cnbc.com (and please pay very special attention to the parts I’ve put in bold print):6 A federal grand jury has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for...

AMMO GRRRLL EXPLAINS THE NEW DEMOCRAT STRATEGY

Susan Vass, a former (and current) comedian, also writes a weekly commentary at powerlineblog.com using the pseudonym “Ammo Grrrll”. It is usually a joy to read her, and this week is no exception. Today’s piece centers on what Ms. Vass /Grrrll perceives as the Democrat party’s new strategy. If you click here and read it, you will be very likely to find yourself...

THE WASHINGTON POST’S SANCTIFICATION OF CHRISTOPHER STEELE

I keep wondering how low the Jeff Bezos-owned Wasington Post can sink….and keep finding out the answer is even more than before. Now, one of its significant editors has gone public with her fawning adoration for Christopher Steele. You might recall that Steele is the former British agent who was hired by opposition research organization Fusion GPS to put together what remains a wholly...

THE NIKOLAS CRUZ WHITE SUPREMACIST FAKE NEWS

It was all over yesterday’s news:  nikolas cruz, the “man” who killed 17 and injured many others in Parkland Florida’s high school was a White supremacist. The Anti-Defamation League came out with this “news”, the Associated Press picked it up, and it was everywhere.   So it must have been true, right? Uh….no. It turns out that the only basis for this...

TWO QUICK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET

On January 26th, the dow jones average was at its all-time high of 26,616,71.  By February 8 it had plummeted to 23.860.46. Our media were providing non-stop coverage of the drop, with no small number of commentators pointing to Donald Trump, who was taking credit for its amazing run-up after his election and insisting – with considerable justification – that he should also be taking...

THE DEMOCRAT MENU: ADAM SCHIFF’S DOG AND PONY SHOW

Will Adam Schiff and his pals ever do what has to be done to release their 10 page memo, supposedly rebutting the “Nunes memo”? I’m starting to think the answer is no.  And, I’m pretty certain I know the reason why. From Alex Swoyer’s article at the Washington Times: Rep. Adam B. Schiff said Thursday he’s uncertain when the Democratic memo concerning alleged...

WHY CAN’T WE SEE THE COMEY MEMOS?

The memos written by James Comey are central to the decision that there be an independent counsel investigation of President Trump and his possible collusion with Russia. Why can’t we see them?  Why is it that all we’ve seen so far is what Comey himself has leaked – which, of course, would exclude material damaging to him and to the basis for an investigation. Byron York...

THE PARKLAND MASSACRE

At least 17 dead, a good many more injured, and nikolas cruz, a 19 year old loner, apparently a very sick, violent one with access to assault rifles, is in custody.  There seems no doubt at all that he is the shooter responsible for this massacre. What do we know about cruz and what don’t we know that is being published anyway? Of all the material I’ve reviewed so far, this account...

THE REPUBLICAN POLL SURGE

If this were just one poll, I would not be writing this blog.  If it were two, I’d probably mention it. But now there are three major polls (that I know of) showing a major jump in Republican fortunes since December.  And it’s worth seriously thinking about. The Quinnipiac University poll, which has consistently shown Republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular lower than...

WILL ADAM SCHIFF JUST SHUT THE %&*# UP?

Here, via excerpts from Erin Kelly’s article at USA Today, is the latest incarnation of Adam Schiff telling us Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election:  There is “ample evidence” that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, but only special counsel Robert Mueller can decide if it’s enough to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, the...

THE NETANYAHU SITUATION

I can’t call this a scandal – yet – because neither I nor, I suspect, anyone else knows for sure whether it is one. But what I can do is put up the beginning of Gregg Carlstrom’s article at politico.com, which very nicely sums up what is brewing in Israel right now: For more than a year, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s scandal-plagued prime minister, has repeated a simple...
