THE MICHAEL COHEN DEAL

Initial reports (always to be taken with not a grain, but a shakerful of salt):  Cohen pleads guilty to something, serves jail time, but does not have to cooperate with the government. Which means what? I don’t know and neither do you. What do the charges Manifort faces have to do with the 2016 election – collusion or obstruction of justice?  It is unclear that they have a thing to...

ANOTHER OCASIO-CORTEZ GAFFE (WHAT ELSE IS NEW?)

As you may have noticed, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is rarely found in mainstream media anymore. That is what happens when someone most media are rooting for very hard keeps making impossibly stupid gaffes, and they don’t want their viewers/listeners/readers to know about them… not that it matters, since, in her congressional district, SpongeBob SquarePants would win if he ran...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Lisa Miller’s just-published article at New York magazine.  They are about david hogg. Do you remember david hogg?  The so-called “survivor” of the Parkland, Florida high school massacre? I say “so-called” because, despite Ms. Miller’s attempt to make it seem as though he was in mortal danger, hogg wasn’t even in...

WHEN THE SHOE IS ON POLITICO.COM’S OTHER FOOT

The following passage was written by dutifully pro-Democrat/anti-Republican politico.com’s Senior Staff Writer Michale Kruse, and published…until the website was shamed into removing it: What would politico.com – and its likeminded websites, not to mention network news shows – have said if that were an article by a senior writer for, say, foxnews.com and referenced a gay...

MTV(ILE)

Last night cable TV offered you the MTV awards.  Did you watch it? If so, you heard a “comedian”, kevin hart, who was about as funny as a peptic ulcer, playing to the wildly appreciative audience by telling them, and you, among other things: “In your face, Trump! Suck it!” “(Do what you want because) There’s no old White man that can stop you.” Vile and racist.  Just...

A DEEP THOUGHT FROM CHELSEA HANDLER

This is exactly the kind of idiotic, self contradictory statement a conservative would never live down in a million years…but a left wing “comedian” like Chelsea Handler?  No problem at all. While offering her opinion that Al Franken should never have resigned the Senate over the kind of  minor sexual misonduct he engaged in (an opinion I happen to agree with), Handler...

JOHN BRENNAN IN HIS OWN WORDS

Here are three quotes from john braindead brennan.  And, no, I didn’t make them up, he really said them. A tweet on July 18th: “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous” Friday night on the Rachel Maddow show: “I didn’t mean that...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE MANAFORT TRIAL

As we enter the third day of jury deliberations in the Paul Manafort trial – which means, at the very least, that jury members are mixed on whether Manafort is or is not guilty…. …I would like to remind readers that mainstream media told us, incessantly, that the purpose of this trial was to get Manafort to “flip” on Donald Trump and provide that elusive...

This is the “joke” hastings’ told at a rally yesterday: “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe? “A...

CNN UNHINGED LUNATIC ALERT

The following video is from Friday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN. The politically conservative spokesperson is Paris Dennard.  The unhinged lunatic is CNN counterterrorism analyst phil mudd. Please pay close attention and see if you can figure out which is which:   Hmmmmm. Watching/listening to the video, I couldn’t help but wonder if mudd was in a contest to see how...

HOW LOW HAS THE NEW YORK TIMES SUNK? AN ANSWER FOR YOU

Here is the headline, and sub-head, of the New York Times’ lead story this morning : TOP AIDE GIVES MUELLER COVETED DETAILS ______________________________ ASSISTANCE IS UNUSUAL ______________________________ WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL’S STRATEGY EVOLVES INTO SURVIVAL TACTIC What does this tell the article’s potential reader (remember:  not everyone goes past the headlines)? To me, it...

TRUMP’S TRADE WAR STRATEGY: GRUDGING ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FROM THE LEFT

Robert Kuttner is co-founder of The American Prospect website (prospect.org).  And as dedicated a leftist as you can find. So if he has anything good to say about Donald Trump, even if he tries to qualify it eight ways from Sunday, it is pretty noteworthy. With the above in mind, here – pulled from Steven Hayward’s article at powerlineblog.com – is what Mr. Kuttner emailed to...

AND WHILE WE’RE SPEAKING OF LEFT WING SOCIAL MEDIA…

…yesterday I wrote about facebook removing material from politically conservative Prager’s PragerU website. And today, we have this from Facebook: “We mistakenly removed these videos and have restored them because they don’t break our standards,” Facebook wrote. “This will reverse any reduction in content distribution you’ve experienced. We’re very sorry and are continuing...

JACK DORSEY’S “CAPTAIN OBVIOUS” FAIL

These words were spoken on CNN last night, by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: “We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is…is more left-leaning. “But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints? And we are not. Period,” Jack Dorsey telling us that Twitter leans left? ...
