THE GENERIC BALLOT TREND

The first thing you have to remember in reading the generic ballot trend – that is, the movement on whether voters say the will cast their ballots for Democrats or Republicans in this year’s mid-term elections – is that it not only is changing now, but it can easily change again before November – in either direction. With that in mind, here is a graph showing the...

THE NEW NFL “NATIONAL ANTHEM RULE”

The NFL, having seen its attendance, and (far more importantly) TV ratings, plummet during its “kneel for the National Anthem” era, has instituted a new rule. First, let’s look at the numbers themselves, via data supplied by Richard Deitch’s article (which clearly leans in favor of the kneeling players) for Sports Illustrated: NBC’s Sunday Night Football 2017: 18.175...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Richard Pollock, writing for dailycaller.com, and – as does my previous blog – concerns robert mueller’s desperate attempt to prevent anything he and his Star Chamber are doing from seeing the light of day. How clumsy is the attempt?  Read this: On May 9, Eric A. Dubelier, a partner with Reed Smith, a prestigious American law firm that...

THE MUELLER UNRAVELING

It’s happening in front of our eyes. For the second time, robert mueller has asked a federal judge to delay the trial of 13 russians and 3 russian companies he has accused of collusion with the Trump administration. And why is this significant?  Because if there is a trial mueller and his witch hunters have to provide “discovery”.  In other words, it won’t be just a...

OUR IMPOSSIBLY COMPROMISED MEDIA

At 72 years of age, and a political junkie for most of my adult life, I’ve seen a lot of media providing a lot of reportage on the subject. But, in all this time, I have never seen anything like the level of partisan dishonesty most mainstream media have foisted on us about Donald Trump over these past two years.  Nothing even comes close. Massive, indisputable, irrefutable evidence of...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s comes to us from President Donald Trump, via his Twitter account. Mr. Trump,  understandably upset by the going-nowhere “investigations” launched against him, and understandably exultant over how things are now moving, has just tweeted this: “Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State. They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam...

THE BRONX BOMBERS

Apropos of nothing political… …if a major league baseball team hit, say, 7 home runs every four games, it would wind up the season with about 283 of them – enough to blow the current record of 264 to smithereens. The New York Yankees have hit 17 home runs in the last four games.  Not 7, but 17. Wow. OK, back to politics, where – for both teams – there are far more...

THE TODAY SHOW TRUMP NON-STORY

The lead story on this morning’s Today Show is that Michael Cohen’s business partner, Evgeny Friedman, has agreed to a plea deal for offenses related to personal tax evasion, and will presumably get a break in return for his testimony. What testimony?  Related to what?  That has not been announced. However, this was enough for Today to make it the lead story – complete with...

HAVE THE FBI RANK AND FILE HAD THEIR FILL?

From Kerry Picket’s article for dailycaller.com, we have these teasers: Sources tell The Daily Caller several FBI agents want congressional subpoenas to testify about the agency’s problems. The sources claim there is a demand within the agency to prosecute former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. They also say the bureau has become totally politicized. The subpoenas are desired by...

THE REAL MICHAEL AVENATTI

Who is Michael Avenatti – the lawyer media have loved to love – because he represents stormy daniels – accuser of President Trump – the president media love to hate? Here’s a little insight for you, via the following excerpts from Michael Finnegan’s article for the (Trump-hating) Los Angeles Times: The law firm of Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael...

BRENNAN: THE KEY TO TRUMPGATE?

If we’re talking about the people who are trying to take down the current, legally elected President, we have a lot of people to pick from. But none, it seems, as front-and-center as former CIA Director john brennan. Here, excerpted from a somewhat hyperbolic, but nonetheless highly informational, commentary by frontpagemag.com’s Joseph Klein, is why: John Brennan, director of the CIA...

THE AWAN SCANDAL – UPDATE

The previous blog spoke of a scandal media are ignoring…because it involves Democrats and not Donald Trump. Here’s the latest on another one:  the Awan Scandal. From Luke Rosiak’s latest article at dailycaller.com – and please pay particular attention to the last paragraph, which reminds us of what this scandal is really about: After former Democratic IT aide Imran Awan...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from the editorial page of Investors Business Daily. IBD has published a commentary which points out that the mueller “investigation” has, no doubt unintentionally, exposed the pieces of a major scandal – which it calls a “counternarrative” – that mueller & Co., along with so many of our shamelessly complicit media, is...

ANOTHER CHRISTIE SITING

It’s getting altogether too serious in here.  So I thought I’d post the latest siting of former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: You just never know where this man will show up. Tally Ho, Guv’nor.  And I do love that hat. Elton John?  Eat your heart out.
