EXPLAINING CNN’S PROBLEM TO CNN

My imaginary hat is tipped to Jeff McCall, writing for thehill.com. In less than three paragraphs (I’ve truncated one of them), he has explained what CNN is doing wrong and what the network has to do to right its sinking ship. Here it is: CNN’s new strategy to boost its lagging prime time is to slot ratings-challenged morning show host Chris Cuomo to take over the 9 p.m. hour of...

ADAM IN PROGRESSIVELAND

What happens when, instead of sending a reporter to deep red country to laugh at, then write about, what hopeless jerks the true believers are, the reporter is sent to deep blue country to do the same?  What happens then? Wonder no more. Politico.com sent reporter Adam Wren into deep blue country to do just that.  And his report, depending on your politics, is either edifying (see, I told you...

ET TU, SAN DIEGO?

California’s growing anti-“sanctuary state” movement may be adding another component.  A major one. Excerpted from Susan Crabtree’s article at freebeacon.com: San Diego County officials are weighing whether to join forces with Orange County in a revolt against the state’s so-called sanctuary law. The County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday announced it would...

MCCABE’S EXCUSE

Andrew McCabe, as of last week, is a disgraced ex-Deputy Director/briefly, acting Director of the FBI, who stands accused of lying under oath. According to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a member of both the Judiciary and House Oversight committees: “Four times he lied.  He lied to James Comey. He lied to the Office of Professional Responsibility, and he lied twice under oath to the inspector...

THE PASSOVER WAR (CONT.)

So far, the result of hamas’ so-called “March of return” – which they are describing as the beginning of the end of Israel’s existence – is 16 are dead, and (keeping in mind that hamas has a rich history of hugely exaggerating casualties), over 1,400 injured. Will this stop now?  Unlikely.  Israel must protect its border, and the “leaders” running...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from mahmoud abbas, unelected* president of the Palestinian Authority and – it is ludicrously claimed by our mainstream media, a Middle East “moderate” . This year, the Trump administration pushed through the “Taylor Force Act” (TFA).  It specifically bans abbas and his pals from providing monetary rewards to Palestinian Arabs who...

ROSEANNE: THE NEW YORK TIMES’ REVIEW

Roseanne Barr is an interesting character.  And I’m not just talking about her part in her eponymous sitcom, which was a huge hit the first time around and – as of its first two episodes with the same case – a huge hit this time around as well. In the last few years – after running for President in 2012 on the leftward “Peace and Freedom Party”, Ms. Barr now...

THE PASSOVER WAR

I do not have a lot of time to post right now. But I want to be on record as noting that hamas, with the full help and cooperation of the Israel-hating UN, is currently mounting a war against Israel, in the guise of nothing more than a demonstration on the Gaza border. When the “demonstration” includes massing significant military assets on that border, it is obviously a lot more. And...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Hillary Clinton.  It was stated during the Rutgers University speech referenced in my previous blog. Here is poor, set-upon Ms. Clinton, bewailing the unfair status she, and women in general, are subjected to – this time regarding when they overstay their welcome after losing an election: “I was really struck by how people said that to me — you...

HILLARY’S CLEARANCE SALE

I just read that Hillary Clinton’s speaking fee has dropped dramatically since losing the presidency to, arguably, the least electable candidate Republicans could have put up against her.  Illustratively, her speech at Rutgers University last night went for a (relatively speaking) bargain-basement tariff of $25,000 – far from the $200,000 she has commanded in the past. When...

KEEPING PUBLIC SCHOOLS UNSAFE, AND INCAPABLE OF EDUCATING STUDENTS

Four years ago, then-President Obama issued a letter informing public schools that students should be disciplined for a variety of offenses, from minor (tardiness) to major (disruption, even physical disruption of class) in proportion to the racial makeup of the student population. Translated into plain English, if Black students are more prone to these offenses, find a way to bring their numbers...

DESPERATELY SPINNING GREAT ECONOMIC NEWS

If I told you that uunemployment filings had dropped to the lowest level in 45 years, what would you say? Maybe some form of “great”?  Like, for example, “wow, that’s great”, or “the economy is really doing great”, or “Maybe Trump really is making America great again”? Well, here’s how bloomberg.com reported it, via the beginning...

6 WEEKS SINCE THE PARKLAND MASSACRE….

GLOBAL DEFRAUDING?

Is The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) doctoring their data to create an illusion of global warming where it does not exist? No less than the editorial board at Investors Business Daily believes it does.  And it has written a genuinely unsettling analysis, complete with specific reference points, to make its case. Here is just part of that analysis: Global Warming: The...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Eric Holder, former Attorney General of the United States under Barack Obama and, before that, enabler of the pardon Bill Clinton gave to Marc Rich (that, in itself, is worthy of several blogs, but we’ll do it at another time). Mr. Holder, it seems, is considering a run for the White House in 2020.  Honest, he is.  And, in that connection, New York...
