FAKE NEWS AT ITS FINEST

What you are about to read was pulled from an article at reuters.com, written by Nathan Layne, titled ” What happens if Mueller finds Trump fingerprints in Russia conspiracy?”.  In it, Mr. Layne purports to analyze the implications of several possible conclusions to the mueller “investigation”. Here are the first two paragraphs of his section titled “Report finds...

IS A TRADE DEAL WITH CHINA IMMINENT?

Is President Trump on the cusp of completing a trade deal with China that will materially benefit the United States? He seems to think so.  And, based on what you are about to read from the excerpts I’ve pulled from Donna Borak and Betsy Klein’s article at cnn.com, China seems to be concurring: President Donald Trump declared Monday he would participate in a “signing...

FROM THE BERNIE SANDERS “NO LOVE LOST” DEPARTMENT

Yesterday I blogged about the enmity between operatives for Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential cycle, regarding Sanders’ frequent use of private jets to campaign for Ms. Clinton, after her people fixed the outcome of the nominating process to shut him out of a possible candidacy. I’m assuming you understand that this would not generate a love-fest between...

THE MAGICAL MICHAEL COHEN RESURRECTION

How do you make a man you have – with good reason – called a serial liar into an oracle of truth, honesty and candor? Well, if you raid his home, threaten him with many years in prison, threaten to clean him out and leave his family with nothing…but assure him that there will be significant leniency if he turns on his former boss – that just might do the trick.  Then he...

THERE’S A REASON BERNIE SANDERS’ INITIALS ARE BS

Question:  how do you turn a socialist into a capitalist? Answer: by giving him a chance to spend money from someone else’s pocket, that he doesn’t have to reimburse. What am I talking about?  Read this, from Daniel Lippman’s article for politico.com and you won’t wonder any more: In his campaign launch video last week, Bernie Sanders singled out the fossil fuel...

THE BORN-ALIVE SURVIVORS PROTECTION ACT” VOTE

As you may NOT be aware, since mainstream media are doing their best to suppress it… … Today the United States Senate will vote on the “The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”. This act, brought to the floor by Senator Ben Sasse, states that if a child survives an abortion attempt by its mother – i.e. it is born alive – the child will receive all...

A quick point about MAINSTREAM MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE STOCK MARKET

Last October, the Dow hit an all-time high of 26,828.39. Then, just before Christmas, it tanked down to 21,792.20 – still an impressive 15% or so above where it was the day Donald Trump was elected president, but nonetheless quite a bit lower than where it had been. When that happened, mainstream media could not stop talking about the “crash”, and speculating how much further...

NO, THE OSCAR’S STAGE DESIGN WAS NOT MEANT TO LOOK LIKE DONALD TRUMP’S HAIR (I THINK)

If you didn’t watch the oscars last night, you probably think the title of this blog means I might be a little deranged. (If so, you’re not insulting me.  It’s nothing new; I hear that from my wife on a more or less regular basis). But some people are suspicious that, whether to compliment or tweak President Trump, the stage was modeled after what passes for his coif. For those...

ACCEPTABLE RACISM (CONT.)

Here is the latest in our series of instances where overt racism is not only acceptable, it is clearly thought of in positive terms. Am I going to be discussing a klan rally?  A regrouping of the Charlottesville neo-nazis?  Uh…nope and nope. I am, instead, going to quote from Saturday’s Joy Reid show on MSNBC. Joy Reid, you may recall, is the MSNBC personality who put out all those...

COMPARING ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ TO…REPUBLICANS(??)

No one will ever accuse CNN’s Fareed Zakaria of being a Republican or having almost anything positive to say about the Republican Party.  So when he compares a Democrat and her growing list of Democrat followers to Republicans, he must not like that Democrat and her likeminded party members very much. With that in mind, here, from Ed Morrissey’s article at hotair.com, is what Mr...

MADURO’S “VICTORY”

What a great “victory” this weekend for Venezuela’s nicolas maduro. Using the troops still loyal to him (I wonder how many no longer are) maduro was triumphant in preventing his starving people from getting humanitarian aid. From Roberta Rampton’s article at Reuters: On Saturday, troops loyal to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro blocked convoys of U.S. humanitarian aid...

THE OSCARS

For whomever of you are still interested in the Oscars, here are my admittedly limited observations: Best Picture: Of the ones we’ve seen, I’d have to give it to Green Book. Roma is getting a lot of buzz but, to be honest, I thought it was nothing more than an interesting, reasonably well put together movie.   I have no idea why it would be oscar-worthy. I thought Bohemian Rhapsody...

CNN’S LATEST 2020 PRESIDENTIAL “ANALYSIS”

Who is Harry Enton? Apparently someone CNN thinks highly enough of to have him analyze the current state of President Trump’s re-election chances. Too bad for CNN. Here, minus an irrelevant first paragraph, is the beginning of Mr. Enton’s latest commentary – in rust, with my comments in blue: Poll of the week: A Des Moines Register poll puts President Donald Trump’s approval...

WHAT IF THESE WERE REPUBLICANS?

Emerson University has just completed a preference poll, taken among New Hampshire Democrats, of declared and possible Democrat presidential candidates. Here are the results: As you can see, the favorites, by far – both with more than double the support of any other candidate – are two old White men:  Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. My question:  what if these were Republican...

HOW TO MAKE FOOLS OF COLLEGE ATHLETES

Let me start with a few questions: Did the United States have a civil war?  Was a major component of the civil war slavery in the breakaway “Confederate” states?  Was the confederacy defeated and slavery made illegal? While you’re reflecting on the answers to those questions, please also read the beginning of this article, from the Mississippi Clarion Ledger, via...
