THE SICKNESS OF PORTLAND, OREGON

How sick is Portland, Oregon? The answer is found in this excerpt from Kyle Perisic’s article at dailycaller.com: Portland, Oregon, police refused to respond to at least two 911 emergency calls from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees inside their offices where violent protesters held week-long demonstrations. The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a...

FOR THE FOLKS WHO THINK RICH REPUBLICANS ARE BUYING ELECTIONS….

….I thought you might want to see this, excerpted from Julia A. Seymour’s article at newsbusters.org: The midterm elections are slightly more than three months away, and already the Impeach Trump crusader Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million on this election cycle. Politico reported on July 31, that it will make the California billionaire “the largest single source of...

A FURTHER WORD ON THOSE JAY-Z LYRICS

Over recent years, one of the most disheartening behaviors of the left has been to treat Black people as inferior beings, and then sell them the ridiculous premise that they are helping them out by doing so. For years, we have seen it in the Voter ID issue – where Black people are told, in so many words, that they are less capable of getting a Voter ID than non-Black people.  And we are...

CONGRATULATIONS (I THINK) TO SENATOR MANCHIN

My conditional congratulations to Senator Joe Manchin (D-WA). Why is he being congratulated?  Because he met with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, presumably to get a first-hand idea of what Judge Kavanaugh is and what he stands for. Under normal circumstances, no congratulations would be necessary.  OF COURSE a U.S. Senator would meet with a prospective Supreme Court nominee. But this is...

WHAT IF IT WERE TRUMP AND MELANIA?

Mainstream media were gushing -and I do mean gushing – over how wonderful it was that former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle were dancing the night away at a Jay-Z concert this weekend.  You can read how wonderful this was by clicking here.  And here.  And here.  And here.  And here.  Etc. etc. etc. Since media have found this so enthralling, I thought you might be interested...

THE MUELLER STAR CHAMBER (CONT.): MANAFORT

This is what we expect from countries like Iran.  Venezuela.  Cuba. But it is happening here. In the USA. Paul Manafort, convicted of absolutely nothing, has been held in prison – in solitary confinement – for over a month now. Yes, he is accused of a series of crimes.  But a) we do not know if he is guilty of any of them and b) in any event, the crimes he is being accused of...

THE IRAN RESULT

Here’s a little something most media have not reported as yet:  since President Trump got us out of the impossibly stupid, counterproductive Iran “treaty”, Iran has been paying dearly for his decision….in ways that make it harder and harder to fund terrorism around the world. From an article at Agence France Presse (AFP) – NOT our mainstream media, we have these...

ANOTHER “WHAT IF IT WERE OBAMA” QUESTION

What if an investigation were launched to uncover possibly unethical and/or illegal actions committed by President Barack Obama… …and the person selected to head the investigation had a bad business deal with a business President Obama owned which caused him to no longer patronize that business… …and he was interviewed for, then rejected by Obama for the job of heading the...

THE DEFINITION OF CHUTZPAH

Chutzpah is a yiddish word that has, over time, become an english word as well.  It means extreme audacity/gall/nerve. This week we have a name attached to that word.  It is Arthur Gregg  “A. G.” Sulzberger, the 37 year old, fifth-generation publisher of the New York Times. As anyone who reads The Times must know, it has spent the last two years doing virtually nothing but...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from a source that, for reasons which escape me, is still extremely important within the Democrat Party – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. During her press conference on Thursday, Ms. Pelosi made this astonishing statement: “We have a responsibility to protect our borders. All of our borders,” Mrs. Pelosi said. “Let’s make no mistake about that...

AN ECONOMIC IDEO

  Let me start by pointing out that the title of this blog does not contain a typo. An “ideo” is a video that shows people who are either idiots, or non-idiots talking like idiots. With the above in mind, please click here, and you will find Amber Athey’s latest blog at dailycaller.com.  It contains an ideo of various media and political people telling you there was no...

A “SHADOWBANNING” TUTORIAL

Have you ever heard of “shadowbanning”? Shadowbanning is a digital technique which makes it significantly more difficult for someone to be found, or followed on the internet.  Not surprisingly, it is usually used against people whom the “shadowbanners” disagree with politically. Daniel John Sobieski, writing for  americanthinker.com, has put together a highly...

THE UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS CONDEMNATION CHART

See if you can find a trend: There you have it:  62 condemnations of Israel…and 55 condemnations of the entire rest of the world combined, including all countries fighting wars and all countries run by brutal dictatorships.

THE WEEK IN pICTURES

I haven’t done this in a while (\silly of me, given the quality of material), but here is a sampling from Steven Hayward’s “The Week In Pictures” feature at powerlineblog.com: And, as always, if you enjoyed these don’t hesitate to use the link I’ve provided and see all the rest.  You won’t regret it.
