CALIFORNIA’S LUNATIC FRINGE LEFTWARD LURCH: UPDATE

Stockton, California is a city of over 300,000 people in central California, about 50 miles or so east of San Francisco.  In recent years, given its bankruptcy in 2013 and it scourge of violent crime, it has been nothing short of a disaster. The voters of Stockton have addressed these issues by electing 27 year old (not a typo) Michael Tubbs, a Democrat (this surprises you?), their Mayor.  And...

THE FEDERAL WORKER EXECUTIVE-ORDER OVERHAUL

President Trump made Memorial Day weekend pretty memorable for federal workers and their unions.  But I doubt many of them will be celebrating. Why would that be?  I’ll let The Washington Post’s Lisa Rein explain, by posting these excerpts from her lengthy, largely even-handed article on the subject: President Trump moved Friday to roll back civil-service protections that federal...

A QUICK QUESTION FOR HILLARY CLINTON

Ms. Clinton: If you wear this in 90 degree temperature, as you did in Boston yesterday…   …what is going on under those clothes? And – tell the truth, please – was it also going on during the 2016 election cycle, when, several times during your presidential run, you went AWOL from the campaign trail with no explanation (and little if any mention by the media which were so...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from pollster and focus group moderator (sort of)*, Frank Luntz. Mr. Luntz, who I suspect is no fan of Nancy Pelosi’s (which should be taken into account here) has the following assessment of Republican prospects for the House of Representatives this year: “If Republicans could find some way to engineer a vote over who would be Speaker of the House in...

CENSORSHIP AND MANIPULATION: IS THAT WHAT MARK ZUCKERBERG IS UP TO?

Is it dangerous when a few people are in control of what the public sees and thinks? If that happens, there is no question that it gives those few people the opportunity to censor and manipulate information.  But does it happen? Well, read the following excerpts from Katy Leach’s article for the Washington Examiner, then decide for yourself: Donald Trump Jr. is furious with Instagram...

WHY HAS JOE PIENTKA NOT BEEN SUBPOENAED?

Does the name Joe Pientka ring a bell?  Probably not – because our wonderful “neutral” media have all but ignored him. Here, excerpted from Sara Carter’s latest article, is why you should know his name – and why he should have been handed a subpoena to testify a long time ago: FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka, if subpoenaed, will provide testimony regarding the...

TRUMP’S NORTH KOREA STRATEGY: UPDATE

Boy is that President Trump lucky. He sent a “Dear Kim” letter to North Korea’s deranged man-child leader, kim jung-un, telling him the talks were off until kim’s attitude changed.  What a moron. Except… …not one day later, kim communicated that the attitude thingie was all a misunderstanding and we want to talk.  Honest. From Nicole Goodkind’s article...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes from Benjamin Brafman, the lawyer who is defending harvey weinstein. This, so help me, is Mr. Brafman’s explanation of weinstein’s behavior:  “Mr. Weinstein did not invent the casting couch in Hollywood. To the extent that there’s bad behavior in that industry, that is not what this is about. Bad behavior is not on trial in this case.” Wow, Brafman is...

A FASCINATING EXCHANGE WITH LYING JAMES CLAPPER

From Paul Mirengoff’s article at powerlineblog.com, we have this exchange – which occurred on January 6, 2017 – between Senator Tom Cotton and james clapper: Sen. Cotton: Director Clapper, you said to Senator McCain earlier “the intelligence community cannot gauge the impact” on the election [of Russian activity]. Is that because that kind of electoral analysis is not a task...

THE TRUMP STRATEGY: WHEN WILL MEDIA ACKNOWLEDGE IT?

Trump threatened to leave NATO over the fact that most countries were not paying their required share of the costs.  But NATO needs us.  So, after the requisite complaining about his threat, countries came forth and started paying up. Trump threatened to leave NAFTA over the fact that it was such a bad deal for us.  But NAFTA Needs us to exist.  So, after the requisite complaining about his...

GAZA’S RETRACTIONLESS RETRACTION

Does the name  Leila al-Ghandour ring a bell?  Probably not.   But, just as probably, you’ve heard of her. Leila al-Ghandour was the 8 month old baby that, world media lamented, was killed by Israeli soldiers on the Gaza border during one of those “protest” events earlier this month. Can you imagine?  Those murderous Israelis killing an innocent child during an innocent...

WHY WE KNOW THE FBI PLANTED A SPY IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN

I was all set to write a relatively lengthy blog showing why it is so self-evidently obvious that the Obama-run FBI planted a spy – maybe more than one – in Donald Trump’s campaign. But Sharyl Attkisson – formerly an award-winning investigative reporter for CBS News, until CBS didn’t like how serious she was about real investigative reporting – has done such a...

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S “DEAR KIM” LETTER

Here’s a letter to a head of state you don’t see every day: Is it just me, or is this the kind of  tone and structure you might expect when being told the job you interviewed for was given to one of the other candidates? Will it bring kim jung-un back to the (I’ve always wanted to use this in a context where it might make some sense) “peace process” between North...

THE TODAY SHOW’S AMAZING “TRUMP SPY” REPORT

I still do not have online access to NBC’s Today Show report on the FBI spy planted in Donald Trump’s campaign. But it was on our TV and as it ran the first time I quickly noticed how strongly it leaned in favor of the FBI and against President Trump – to the point where, if I heard correctly, it either suggested or claimed outright that there was no spy planted at...
