left wing “civility” in all it’s glory (cont.)

Remember michelle wolf, the “comedian” who personally insulted Sarah Huckabee Sanders to her face at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, then assured us we just didn’t understand what she was saying? Well, yesterday, on her show (yes, Neflix paid her to do this), she said the following things about Ivanka Trump.  See if you think any of them could be...

Is Rod Rosenstein about to be fired?

Various media are now reporting that Rod Rosenstein is on the brink of being fired. Bill Kristol, of the Weekly Standard, says it could happen as early as today. My opinion is in the form of a question: why hadn’t he already been fired months ago? If ever someone should have been fired it is this Trump hating, serial obstructing, self-protecting “public servant”. And if...

MAXINE WATERS GOES AFTER CHUCK SCHUMER

A loose cannon can fire in any direction. Want proof? How about the fact that Rep. maxine waters (D-CA), fresh from exhorting Democrats to angrily confront members of the Trump administration whenever they set foot in public, even when just out with their families for dinner, has now lashed out at Senate  Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Why did she do this?  Because Schumer, while not...

WHY DOES TAYLOR COX STILL HAVE A JOB?

Suppose a writer for various entertainment media tweeted this: “The only anxiety I have about black extinction is that it’s not happening faster”. Or this: “The only anxiety I have about muslim extinction is that it’s not happening faster”. How fast do you figure that writer would be fired?  How fast would that writer’s career in the industry be...

THE OBRADOR VICTORY

Mexico held its presidential election yesterday.  And former Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, on his third try, won a resounding landslide victory. Was this because, after rejecting him twice, the country suddenly fell in love with “Amlo”, as he is called?  Or because they were sick of the direction Mexico has gone under Nieto and, before him, Calderon, and the...

The paragraphs of the day

Today’s paragraphs come from a surprising source, giving their content; an editorial in yesterday’s New York Times. Here is the Times’ candid, even brutal, assessment of the current, uber-geriatric, Democrat “leadership”: … with the loss of Mr. Crowley, who was a relative young ’un in the Democratic leadership, at age 56, House Democrats have nothing even...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. Maxine Waters, aka Unhinged Central. Having spent the last year and a half threatening President Trump with impeachment (which, she seems to think, removes him from office; it does not), and egging people on to harass and intimidate Mr. Trump and anyone connected with his campaign, Waters is now claiming she has received death threats. Has she?  Have...

THE WEEK IN PICTURES

As regular readers know, I occasionally put up a sampling of political cartoons, from the compilation put together most Fridays by Steve Hayward of powerlineblog.com. This week’s cartoons, a good many of which relate to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement and where the next vacancy is likely to come from, are more edgy than most.  But, despite the somewhat bad taste of...

“DE-ICE”ING REPUBLICAN PROSPECTS FOR 2018

If there is one thing today’s Democrat Party is especially good at, it is taking positions that send large parts of the country – including segments that used to be within the Democrat voter base – straight to the other side of the aisle. And if ever there was an issue designed to do just that, it is the incredibly stupid demand that we abolish Immigrations and Customs...

DID TRUMP REALLY MAKE THAT OIL DEAL?

What if President Trump, with no fanfare whatsoever, quietly made a deal with Saudi Arabia to boost that country’s oil production by up to 2 million barrels a day? If he did that, it would: -cause oil prices, which have risen to their highest levels in years, to drop, while -putting the wood to both Iran and Venezuela, which might spur the end of both countries’ regimes – a huge...
