PAUL WELLSTONE REVISITED

There were two funerals of national interest this past week; one for a war hero and five time United States Senator, John McCain, the other for an iconic soul singer, Aretha Franklin. Both were perverted  into orgies of hatred for President Donald Trump.  And that is how they will be remembered. What effect might this have on the midterm elections, to be held just two months from now? Well...

TRUMP TWEETS THAT COME BACK TO BITE

In 2016, Donald Trump was running against a large field of opponents for the Republican presidential nomination.  One of them was Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Because Donald Trump’s style is to slam opponents with unfiltered attacks, he went after Senator Cruz with no holds barred and no concern about how far over the line they were.  In Trump’s tweets, Cruz was a do-nothing, a liar...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Ari Fleischer, former Press Secretary to President Bush (the younger). It concerns CNN’s serial penchant for coming up with “facts” about President Trump that turn out not to be facts at all. The latest incident – which prompted Fleischer’s comments – is a report from Watergate has-been Carl Bernstein that then-candidate...

ANOTHER QUICK QUESTION FOR MEDIA

Now that mainstream media have made good and sure we all know that several speakers at John McCain’s funeral (including McCain himself via a posthumous statement) attacked President Trump… when do you suppose the same mainstream media will provide their viewers/readers/listeners with a compilation of what some of the politicians and “journalists” professing their fawning...

A QUICK QUESTION FOR MEDIA, ABOUT THE ARETHA FRANKLIN FUNERAL

Why is it that so many in the media found it important enough to essentially invent a story about Bishop Charles H. Ellis III “groping” Ariana Grande, but – at least in the stories I have read – did not find it important enough to question why career racist/Black supremacist/anti-Semite/anti-gay louis farrakhan was not only invited to the funeral but seated in a place of...

BISHOP ELLIS AND THE PC POLICE

Bishop Charles H. Ellis III officiated at the funeral of Aretha Franklin. That was quite an honor, and you might think Bishop Ellis would leave Ms. Franklin’s service proud to have done so. But this is the era of PC. And instead of walking away proudly he is apologizing profusely. Why? Because he is accused of groping a female pop singer and making an offensive statement about Latinos. Did...

“MONKEY” AS A RACIST (OR NON-RACIST) TERM

As you no doubt are aware, Florida’s Republican Senate candidate Ron DeSantis has been mega-criticized for using the term “monkey” when talking about his Black Democrat opponent, Andrew Gillum. This blog has already discussed the fact that DeSantis’s use of the term “monkey” had nothing to do with Gillum himself, but was a reference to Governor Rick...

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S “OFF THE RECORD” COMMENTS ABOUT CANADA

Did President Trump really make several aggressive comments about negotiating a trade agreement with Canada – comments which almost certainly would be taken offensively? Well, yes he did.  Because he has now acknowledged them – while excoriating Bloomberg.com’s people for taking comments he specifically said were off the record and publishing them anyway. From Daniel...

ABOUT THAT EULOGY FOR ARETHA FRANKLIN…

You may or may not agree with everything, or even some of the things, said during the eulogy for Aretha Franklin, which was provided by the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Atlanta’s Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta.  But you certainly can’t say Rev. Williams is shy about his opinions. From an Associated Press article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, we have these partial compilation...

WHAT IF MELANIA TRUMP…

…went to the funeral of a singing legend, and was photographed in the same picture with a virulently racist, anti-Semite?  Do you think media would make something of it?  Do you think they would tie it to Melania’s spouse? Well, this picture was taken at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. Notice who is in the same picture (not to mention al sharpton and Jesse Jackson)? Now, you can...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

This latest installment of the Real Racism series comes from that bastion of intellectual resources…and politically correct sanctimony…Harvard University. Would you believe that Harvard, along with a great many other similarly PC universities, is overtly racist?  Before answering, read this excerpt from the just-released Department of Justice statement: Harvard admits that it uses...
