THE POST-MANAFORT/COHEN POLL NUMBERS

Last week, after the convictions of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, media were falling all over themselves to proclaim the Trump presidency had one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. At that time, I wrote a blog containing this passage: I’ll also wait to see if this has any impact on Trump’s popularity levels in the polls. I’m not talking about the inevitable polls, being...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Steven Hayward’s article at powerlineblog.com.  As you will see below, they talk about what media, somehow, forgot to mention this week – and what it might say about prospects for removing Donald Trump from the presidency: So, President Trump had a terrible week. CNN, and the rest of the prestige press, told us so. It’s only a matter of time...

THE HILLARY CLINTON DEEP-STATE COVER-UP (CONT.)

No need to provide a lenghy introduction to the point of this blog.  The following excerpt from an article at realclearinvestigations.com tells the tale perfectly well: When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the...

REPLACING MCCAIN

With the death of Senator John McCain, Arizona’s Governor, Doug Ducey (R) will now name his successor to complete Mr. McCain’s term (which continues for two more years). Governor Ducey must, by Arizona law, name a member of McCain’s party to succeed him – not that it matters, since they both are Republicans, so it almost certainly would have happened anyway. There has...

JOHN MCCAIN R.I.P.

Once Senator John McCain declined further treatment for his brain cancer, we knew the end was near. It came yesterday. John McCain was known as a war hero and served five terms in the United States Senate.  Regardless of his political views, a great many people – me included – considered him a giant of our times. And, I would like to think (but don’t know), at least one...

ANOTHER DISGUSTING COMMENT FROM DISGUSTING SYMONE SANDERS

symone sanders, formerly Bernie Sanders’ Press Secretary (no relation – lucky him) has, for the past year, been a commentator on CNN. As I have blogged in the past, sanders is a flat-out racist.  That should have caused CNN to drop her like a hot potato…were it not for the fact that her racism is directed against White people, and therefore acceptable to CNN (and numerous other...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from President Trump.  It concerns New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s amazingly stupid jab at President Trump’s signature slogan that “We’re not gonna ‘Make America Great Again.’ It was never that great” Says Mr. Trump: “He recently stated the new slogan was ‘America was never great’. Now he was so angry at me. He truly hates me. He...

DONALD TRUMP’S HELL WEEK

I doubt there could have been a worse week for President Trump: -Paul Manafort:  guilty of personal financial improprieties having nothing to do with President Trump; -Michael Cohen:  guilty of personal financial improprieties, including payments of hush-money to two women so they wouldn’t go public with their allegations that they had consensual sex with President Trump; -National...

CANCELLING THE NORTH KOREA MEETING

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was traveling to North Korea, to meet with kim jung-un.  But that meeting has been canceled. Why? Excerpted from Emily Shugerman’s article for the UK Independent: Donald Trump has cancelled US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s upcoming visit to North Korea, citing a lack of progress on denuclearisation. ​”I have asked Secretary of State...

John McCain’s end game

With genuine sadness, I am reporting that, today, Senator John McCain’s family has announced they are discontinuing treatment for the aggressive brain cancer he suffers from. This almost certainly means the end is near. Let’s hope that when it comes, Mr. McCain leaves us  peacefully and painlessly.

The Trump “investigation”: naked threats division

National Enquirer CEO David Pecker and Trump Organization CFO Andrew Weisselberg have both been granted immunity by the mueller “investigation”, presumably so that ifithey have anything on President Trump, they will spill it. Do they? And, if so, has it anything at all to do with Russian collusion or obstruction of justice, which is what mueller and his staff/assemblage of Democrat...

Well, here is the beginning of the article:  Like so many of President Trump’s late-night tweets, this one was inspired by a segment on his favorite...

AND WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT OF LANNY DAVIS…

…are you as intrigued as I am by the fact that, of all the lawyers in the United States that michael cohen could have chosen, he settled on Lanny Davis –  arguably, the single most ardent Clinton-supporting lawyer of them all. Do you wonder, as I do, how a take-no-prisoners defender of Hillary Clinton, whom Donald Trump defeated in the 2016 election, wound up front-and-center in this...

ANOTHER THREAD OF LIES ABOUT TRUMP

From Jim Sciutto, Carl Bernstein and Marshall Cohen’s July 27th article for the (it’s been a long time, but they really were) formerly respectable CNN: (CNN) Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on...
