A LESSON IN HOW TO DESTROY BUSINESS IN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN

From an article at CBS News, we have this: Gov. Andrew Cuomo and leaders of the New York State Legislature say they’ve reached a $175.5 billion state budget agreement. The deal includes congestion pricing, a controversial plan to charge drivers below 60th Street in Manhattan. A panel of experts will set the surcharges by the end of 2020, but sources tell CBS2 drivers in cars will pay around...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from New York City Mayor, and hardline leftist/mostly socialist, Bill De Blasio. Mr. De Blasio has a problem with New York City Councilman Kalman Yeger, who – in denouncing Rep. ilhan omar as the anti-Semite she is, also tweeted out that “Palestine doesn’t exist”…and then doubled down by saying “There is no state by that name; there...

LEARNING ABOUT ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ THE HARD WAY

So now that mainstream media – possibly as a mission of mercey – have accommodatingly dumped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from their formerly breathless, day-to-day coverage (how often have you seen her name since the “Green New Deal” became a national laughingstock that not even Senate Democrats would vote for?)… …how is she doing with the constituents who...

ENDING AID TO EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA AND HONDURAS

President Trump has announced the end of U.S. aid to three of the most corrupt countries in our hemisphere:  El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Presumably, aid will be reinstated when they stop sending their people through Mexico (no friend of ours) into the United States. Not at all surprisingly, Democrats – who see these people as soon-to-be voter – are outraged, and will do...

THE DEMOCRAT ELECTORAL CIRCUMVENTION ATTEMPT (CONT).

And then there were 13. Delaware is becoming the 13th state to sign a so-called “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact”  – which is a pledge that all its electoral votes will go to the winner of the national popular vote, regardless of how a majority of voters within their states vote. As of now, Delaware and every one of the other states signing this pledge –...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come from Marc Thiessen, the Washington Post’s house conservative (unless your logic is mangled enough to think Jennifer Rubin is a conservative as well). In his latest commentary, Mr. Thiessen – correctly – identifies a number of Democrat loudmouths who have spent the past two years claiming they have evidence that President colluded with Russia to...

WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP CLOSE THE MEXICAN BORDER?

Let’s think about this. -The border is a sieve, through which millions of illegals stream into our country. -The asylum laws effectively enable them to tell authorities they will show up for a hearing, which over 90% never show up for. -Mexico is enabling illegals to enter their southern border…as long as they keep on going and leave to become illegals in the United States.  For a...

THE TRUMP SPECIAL OLYMPICS OVERRIDE

Two days ago,  I blogged about Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s boneheaded defunding of the Special Olympics – on the grounds that it gets money from other sources.  (How many other organizations get money from other sources, Ms. DeVos?  Are you going to defund them too?) I am happy to report that President Trump has overridden this decision and restored the entire amount of...

WHEN SOCIALISM CLASHES WITH SELF-INTEREST

Sadly (though predictably, given the predominant political leanings of academia) there are a great many college students who happily sign on to “socialism”, as they understand it. But how do they feel if , instead of being the getters, they are the givers? Campusreform.org decided to find out.  It sent its people to Florida International University to ask about this. Here’s...

IS JOE BIDEN FINISHED?

How does the Democrat Party hate Joe Biden? Let me count the ways: He’s old.  He’s White.  He’s male. And, by today’s increasingly draconian sexual harassment standards, he is a serial offender. Here is the latest example of Mr. Biden’s behavior – as excerpted from Lucy Flores’ personal account in New York magazine: In 2014, I was the 35-year-old...

Is Donald Trump responsible for jussie smollett?

Just in case you thought there were limits to what a Democrat would blame President Trump for… Chicago’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, is blaming him for jussie smollett. I swear, this is not satire. He really is. Excerpted from Greg Evans’ article at deadline.com: Asked by a reporter whether he agrees with President Donald Trump’s tweeted suggestion that the FBI and the Department of...

DOES JOE BIDEN HAVE A RACIST PAST?

The previous blog dealt with the funny side of Joe Biden – his long time, well-documented propensity for making verbal gaffes. But his history of statements and political positions that, in today’s world, would be considered racist is no laughing matter for his candidacy. A just-published article by Tony Lee, writing for breitbart.com, recounts a number of them…and notes that...

JOE BIDEN: THE ORIGINAL GAFFE MACHINE

When it comes to making verbal gaffes, President Trump is at the top (or is it bottom) of the class. But, truth be told, he’s just a copy of the original. The original gaffe machine is Joe Biden. Biden has made so many of them over the years that there are actually compilations of some of the more amusing and/or appalling ones In that regard, here’s a compilation put together by Sean...

THE COLLUSION DELUSION VIDEO COMPILATION

Can you stand 18 minutes, comprised predominantly of Democrats and their media lackeys assuring us that Donald Trump and his campaign “colluded” with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton? If so, click here, sit back with a stiff drink, and enjoy the show. Then, if you care to, spend the rest of your life trying to figure out… a) what would have been illegal...

A CASE STUDY IN HOW FAR THE NAACP HAS SUNK

When I was younger, I revered the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).  I was a member, and a yearly contributor. As the organization radicalized, my esteem waned.  My association – membership and monetary – ended when Ben Chavis was elected its National Director. These days, I don’t hear much news about the NAACP other than its yearly...
