MORE ECONOMIC NEWS FOR MEDIA TO DOWNPLAY

How is the economy moving along – jobs, in particular? Here’s your answer, excerpted from a just-published article at reuters.com: New applications for U.S. unemployment benefits dropped to their lowest level in more than 48 years last week, suggesting that March’s slowdown in job growth was probably temporary.

THE KANYE WEST/DONALD TRUMP BROMANCE

Donald Trump is President of the United States. Kanye West is a rap singer who has made a lot of money at it. West has suddenly started talking up Donald Trump. Other than the curiosity value of a Black rap singer being supportive of a Republican President, why would I care? End of blog.

RONNY JACKSON: WHY? (WITH A QUICK UPDATE)

Dr. Ronny Jackson is a distinguished physician and highly honored military career professional, who has attended three presidents – George Bush, Barack Obama and now Donald Trump. It therefore follows that he is qualified to run the Veteran’s Administration (VA)? No it does not.  But that’s not the end of the issue.  Nor are the  suddenly surfacing claims about Dr. Jackson...

THE CARAVAN: AT THE USA BORDER

Remember that “caravan” heading through Mexico – with the full cooperation and support of the Mexican government – on its way to enter the USA illegally? Remember the news reports that it had broken up and didn’t exist anymore, followed by virtually no coverage – presumably because “hey, we told you it wasn’t there anymore, so there’s no news...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from ABC News’s Senior White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta. This is what the wholly professional, introspective Mr. Acosta has to say about people who see any validity to President Trump calling people – like Acosta, for example – purveyors of “fake news”: “The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an...

THE CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL: UPDATE

How much longer can mainstream media continue to suppress/bury/hide this scandal? How much longer can they pretend there is anything to the evidence-less “Russia/Trump collusion non-story, while looking the other way at massive evidence of felonies committed by Hillary Clinton – felonies others have gone to jail for? Here are excerpts from a press release just made available by the...

A VULNERABLE DEMOCRAT WHO GETS IT

Joe Donelly is the Democrat Senator from Indiana.  He is up for re-election this year.  And, as media continue to assure us Republicans are going to take a major-league pounding in November, Mr. Donnelly is not so sure – certainly about his situation in Indiana. From Paul Crookston’s article at freebeacon.com: Indiana Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly’s campaign criticized his...

DONNA BRAZILE: TRYING TO GET BACK HER DEM CRED

This is Donna Brazile’s big chance. After infuriating Democrats last year (not to mention shaming “journalists”) by writing a book which talked about how the 2016 Democrat primary system was rigged to make sure Hillary Clinton was the party’s candidate, she sees an opening to get back her credibility among Democrats.  And she’s taking it. Excerpted from an article...

GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT: BYRON YORK NAILS IT

One of the best commentaries about the so-called “Steele dossier” I have seen – maybe the single best – has just been put out by The Washington Examiner’s Byron York. In it , Mr. York takes makes what used to be the elementary point that, when accusations are made against someone it is up to them to prove those accusations are true, not up to the accused to prove...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s  paragraph comes to us from Glenn Greenwald, a writer and social critic I have come to respect more and more over time for his dead-on honesty –  even when I disagree with him, as I very often do. Mr. Greenwald is incensed over the fact that almost all liberal media, as he calls them, are ignoring the numerous homophobic writings of MSNBC show host Joy Ann Reid from years...

THE BROWARD COWARD AND HIS DONUT DEPUTIES (CONT.)

In case you forgot about the disgrace of a “sheriff”, scott israel, and his hide-while-the-kids-are-slaughtered deputies – understandable, since most mainstream media are far to busy covering gun and protests against the NRA to remind you – here is the latest news from Coward Broward County. From Travis Fedschun’s article at Fox News (one of the few venues which...

HANGING ON TO THE “RUSSIA SCANDAL” MEME

The “Russia Scandal”. Media have been pushing it for almost two years – while ignoring real scandals (the email scandal and the awan scandal to name two) and they still have no evidence to back it up. When Carter Page was nailed by the mueller investigation Star Chamber they told us “here it comes”.  Same with George Papadopoulas.  Same with Paul Manafort.  Same...

THE SAN FRANCISCO CONUNDRUM

This story, about today’s San Francisco, comes under the heading “What did they think was going to happen”? From John Sexton’s article at hotair.com, we have this lament from Mayor Mark Farrell: “Enough is enough,” Farrell said Friday. “We have offered services time and time again and gotten many off the street, but there is a resistant population that remains, and...

THE TORONTO VAN MASSACRE

What we know so far: A van jumped the curb on Yonge Street in Toronto and accelerated into the people there. Initial reports are that there are 9 dead – and, with 16 additional victims injured, that total will likely rise. The driver of the van has been apprehended and is in custody. Is it a terrorist attack?  Of course it is, how could it not be?  The only issue is who and why. More...
