First, the latest on the series of “pipe bombs” sent to various Democrats and to CNN. From Jack Crowe’s article at nationalreview.com: The pipe bomb and white powder that forced an evacuation at CNN headquarters in New York City Wednesday morning were harmless, a law enforcement source told the Associated Press. The purported explosive device was similar in construction to...

THE “CARAVAN” BACKFIRE

John Hinderaker, at powerlineblog.com, has written an excellent analysis of the “Caravan” issue. His angle is that this was supposed to be a damaging issue for Republicans, but is turning out to be the exact opposite…so now, justifiably worried about the extent of a political backfire it is causing, Democrats are either changing the subject, or – incredibly –...

About those bombs…

As Democrats continue to get nailed for, among other things, the mob incitements being visited on Republicans around the country… … suddenly a bunch of bombs, apparently aimed at high-profile Democrats and Democrat-supporting entities, materialize in their mailboxes, or nearby. According to at least one report I heard, the “bombs” were so obvious that they might as well...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from andy lassner, executive producer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. This is what lassner, ever-sensitive to the feelings of women, has to say about the First Lady of the United States:  “I’m way more afraid of another Melania getting into this country than I am of any caravan of human beings seeking asylum.” Would anyone care to give me a reason...

THE “CARAVAN” GROWS

According to information reported by breitbart.com, the “caravan” of migrants, mostly Honduran, is now up to 14,000. They are out of Honduras.  So they are free of the country they have escaped.  They are in Mexico, which presumably can take them in. But that is not good enough.  They intend to enter the United States illegally. And Mexico, apparently, is doing nothing to stop...

A QUICK REQUEST ABOUT MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE “CARAVAN”

Will someone let me know if they read or hear anything from mainstream media critical of the countries – such as El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, not to mention Mexico – people in this “caravan” are coming from? It seems to me that if they are fleeing these countries and trying to enter the United States, there just might be bad things to say about the countries they...

KEITH’S POLITICAL DEATH KNELL(ISON)?

A new poll has come out, showing that Rep. keith ellison (D-MN), who is running against Republican Doug Wardlow to become Minnesota’s next Attorney General, has gone from a 5% lead last month, to a 7% deficit as of today. This, by itself, is not especially shocking. Outlier polls show unlikely results all the time. ellison’s problem, however, is that a) it is not an outlier poll, it...

THE OBAMA BACKFIRE?

Have you noticed how little we have seen of former President Barack Obama during this hotly contested mid-term election season? Why do you suppose? Well, here, from Ben Smith’s article at buzzfeednews.com, is what Obama had to say during one of his rare appearances – this one in Nevada – and then, Smith’s assessment of why he is making himself so scarce: Obama spent much...

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS: THE PIERS MORGAN LIST

In the previous blog, I alluded to the list of Trump accomplishments enumerated by Piers Morgan.  In case you didn’t read his entire piece (which I hope you did – here’s the link again), I thought I would show you that list: In less than two years, Trump’s got two nominees onto the Supreme Court, entrenching a Conservative majority. He’s slashed taxes, and regulations –...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Piers Morgan, the crusty British TV personality/commentator. Morgan, though certainly no Republican or rightwing partisan, has been friends with Donald Trump for a good many years.  And he has no problem in explaining why. After first pointing out that, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, President Trump’s approval ratings are...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote – and the smile is still on my face as I type this – comes to us from House Minority Leader and would-be Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Yesterday, during an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Ms. Pelosi informed us that: “People ask me all the time, ‘why haven’t you run for president?’”  All I could think of in reading this quote was...
