MERRY CHRISTMAS

To all my Christian readers (and, for that matter, everyone else as well), I hope with you a merry Christmas today, for whatever your reasons – be they religious, seasonal, or just because it would be nice if every day were merry.

KEVIN (WAY OUT IN OUTER) SPACEY

If you liked The Twilight Zone, you’re going to love the video that was just issued by Kevin Spacey, the two-time academy award winning actor whose career was derailed by allegations – a number of them – of gay sexual improprieties. It seems that Mr. Spacey is going to be arraigned on January 7. for sexually assaulting the teenage son of former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh...

THE REFUGEE CRISIS MAINSTREAM MEDIA IGNORE

Yesterday’s Venezuela.  It once was the most prosperous country in South America – due, in no small part to the fact that it has more oil reserves than any other country on earth.  Booming industry.  Strong tourist trade. Then there was hugo chavez.  And nicolas maduro. Today’s Venezuela:  destitute, people starving in the street, millions of people fleeing the country. ...

JONATHAN TURLEY EXPLAINS THE STEELE DOSSIER

Professor Jonathan Turley is one of the few straight-shooters out there – i.e. someone who will commend or attack based on actual behavior rather than ingoing partisan politics. His latest commentary, published at thehill.com, is a devastating piece about the so-called “Steele dossier” – one that every person with who retains even a small degree of open-mindedness should...

AN UNASSURING ASSURANCE

Yesterday, President Trump tweeted this, as an assurance that his decision to remove our troops from Syria was a good one: Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump President @RT_Erdogan of Turkey has very strongly informed me that he will eradicate whatever is left of ISIS in Syria….and he is a man who can do it plus, Turkey is right “next door.” Our troops are coming...

BRIAN KOLFAGE & LEFT WING “CIVILITY”

Brian Kolfage is a military veteran…and a triple amputee. He believes in border security. To that end, he has put up a gofundme.com page for contributions toward building that wall – something which, given a wall’s cost, seemed pretty whimsical. Well, whimsical or not, it has, in a short period of time, accumulated over $16 million dollars in contributions (by the time you read...

QUESTION: WILL THE GOVERNMENT “SHUTDOWN” DEPRIVE FAMILIES OF THEIR CHRISTMAS PAYCHECKS?

Answer:  no. With all the hand-wringing by Democrats and media who desperately want there to be no border-security wall, crying that families will have to do without at Christmastime, the fact is that they all will be getting virtually their entire paychecks. From Niv Elis’s article at thehill.com, which is hardly what you’d call a Trump-loving venue, we have this: Federal workers...

THE MOST EGREGIOUS FAKE NEWS STORIES OF 2018

The dailycaller.com website has compiled what it considers the 30 most egregious fake news stories of 2018. I don’t know that these are the exact ones, in the the exact order, that I would have picked.  But every one of them deserves to be on the list. I’ll show you a sampling of three…in the hope that you will then click here to read the rest.  See if you find them as...

THE LOST CHRISTMAS PAY MOST MEDIA WON’T BE TALKING ABOUT

Now that we are in a government “shutdown”, you will be hearing/reading a great deal about workers being shut out of their Christmas paychecks (and far less about the fact that, if this goes the way of every other government “shutdown”, they will get every penny of the money once things are back to normal). But I wonder how many of the same media venues will be talking...

UNDOING A RACIST POLICY

It constantly amazes me that there are people who think, racially speaking, Barack Obama brought this country together instead of pulling it apart. The evidence that he pulled it apart is found throughout his 8 years in the Oval office.  And no policy is more demonstrative of this reality than his written demand,in 2014, in the form of a “request”, that Black public school students...

BETO AND BUTTHEAD?

One more from Steven Haywood’s cartoon collection. It’s nasty.  It’s unfair.  But it’s also damn funny: Really, does anyone have the slightest idea what would make this guy attractive as a potential presidential candidate?

RUSSIAN INFLUENCE IN AN ELECTION: THE REAL THING

By now, unless you are impervious to reality, or so much of a dyed-in-the-wool Trump hater that it will never penetrate, you lprobably know that there is no evidence that Russia colluded with Trump and his people to influence the 2016 presidential election. But that doesn’t mean Russia wasn’t used to influence other elections.  Like, for example, the senate election in Alabama. This...
