TO HAVE AND AVENATTI

It is not a good time for michael avenatti, the lawyer for porn star/stripper stormy daniels and Brett Kavanaugh accuser julie swetnick. The defamation case brught by avenatti and daniels (stephanie clifford, actually) was dismissed in federal court, and daniels/clifford was ordered to pay President Trump’s legal costs; A judge in avenatti’s home state of California ruled he is in...

CESAR SAYOC: A HISTORY OF DERANGEMENT

We now know a lot about cesar sayoc (no more capital letters for him), the lunatic who sent those “don’t worry, they won’t explode” bombs to various anti-Trmp people and entities. Surprisingly, CNN’s Nicole Chavez has put up a very complete, very well put together chronology of his obviously deranged life (if CNN did this good a job on other news, Trump supporters...

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ANNOUNCMENT OF THE ARREST

President Trump, at the White House, has announced the arrest of bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc, complimented law enforcement and denounced the violence. This, no doubt will not deter the CNN’s, MSNBC’s etc. etc. etc. of the world from trying to blame him for Sayoc’s actions. And I can almost guarantee most media will not report which group he announced it to, or their enthusiastic...

CESAR SAYOC?

There has been an arrest in the series of bombs sent to Democrat and Democrat-friendly people/entities.H The man arrested is Cesar Sayoc.  Initial reports indicate he is a 56 year old either Native American or White male, who has a history of threats and attempts at terrorist activity. Political party-wise, in the last 5 minutes I have heard that he is a member of the Green Party, a Democrat...

THE ICING ON THE ECONOMY CAKE

The latest economic news/last news before the midterm elections has just been released. From Fred Imbert’s article for cnbc.com, here are its key points: Gross domestic product expanded by a 3.5 percent annual rate. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected the economy to expand by a 3.4 percent annual rate. The department said the PCE price index, a key measure of inflation, increased by...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from an unlikely source. The source is NBC reporter Jon Allen, and it is unlikely because he has a bad word to say about The Phantom Cherokee, Senator Elizabeth Warren. During an interview on (decidedly leftward) Bill Press’s radio show, the subject of Ms. Warren’s “DNA test” came up.  And this is what Mr. Allen had to say: “The...

MEDIA’S DEMAND THAT TRUMP TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE BOMBS

As you know, in the last few days a number of “bombs” were sent to key Democrats and to media targeted by President Trump. I put the word “bombs” in quotation marks because it is clear that every one of them was packaged to be immediately spotted, and none of them were set to detonate.  Therefore, common sense tells me the most likely purpose of sending them was not to...

TRUMP’S “CARAVAN” TWEET

He’s said it repeatedly, and he said it again yesterday: Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump To those in the Caravan, turnaround, we are not letting people into the United States illegally. Go back to your Country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing! 2:31 PM – Oct 25, 2018 I doubt many of the “caravan”...

WHEN TURNING ON YOUR OWN IS THE ONLY OPTION

Claire McKaskill, the two-time Democrat Senator from Missouri is in big trouble.  With less than two weeks to go, her Republican opponent, Josh Hawley, is even with her or ahead in most polls, and Republicans, in general, seem to be surging. It’s time to panic. What to do, what to do? Well, here’s a hypothetical exchange at McCaskill headquarters that might explain her...

BARACK OBAMA ON VOTER FRAUD

With a tip of my imaginary hat to New York radio personality Mark Simone, here, from his website, is a video of Barack Obama, during the 2008 presidential campaign, talking about the voter fraud that he and his Democrat cohorts angrily tell us does not exist. Oh, one other thing:  when you watch it, please pay special attention to the phrase Mr. Obama uses at about :44.  See if it reminds you...

THE CNN CHYRONS

CNN expects that we take it seriously as a neutral news source. Why? As you may be aware, a chyron (KY-ron) is the space at the bottom of a cable news screen, with information to “flesh out” what you are watching. Today, as we continue to wait for information regarding which individual or group sent the series of “it’s not going to blow up or anything but it looks like it...

THE UN AND THE “CARAVAN”

If you were to ask me what the United Nations does, I could rattle off several things.  Its embassies and delegations’ housing needs keep mid-Manhattan real estate values high,  it keeps a number of pricey restaurants in business, its delegates use their status to park in spaces that my car would be towed from, that sort of thing. But what about El Salvador, and Honduras, and Guatemala...

MCSALLY’S FINAL PIECE OF THE PUZZLE?

Rap Martha McSally is the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate to replace John McCain.  Her Democrat opponent is Rep. Kirsten Sinema. Until roughly a month ago, Sinema was leading McSally by a tenuous, but nonetheless relatively serious margin of 3-7%. Since then the race has evened up, with both candidates leading within 3% depending on what poll you read. But that may well be about to...

IS MEGYN KELLY FINISHED AT NBC?

First, a quick chronology. Tuesday: Megyn Kelly makes an amazingly stupid comment questionning why it would be a problem for children to go Halloween trick-or-treating in blackface. Wednesday: Kelly, having been heavily criticized for the comment, and tagged either as someone, at best, astonishingly insensitive to the racial implications of her statement or, at worst, an overt racist, makes a...

THE NEW YORK TIMES’ “FANTASY” ABOUT ASSASSINATING PRESIDENT TRUMP

This is no joke. Yesterday, the New York Times published an article detailing five writers’ fantasies about “Trump’s Next Chapter”. Given that the people running the Times hate Trump’s guts and have foregone just about every principle of journalism to make sure readers know it, I assume you won’t be surprised to know this article takes aim at the President. But...
