THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from John Myers’ latest commentary for the Los Angeles Times. In it, Mr. Myers expresses his concern about next year’s census, and how it might affect California.  To that end, he brings up a number of issues, all worth thinking about – either positively nor negatively. But this particular angle, relating to which residents of California...

HIS NAME IS PETER BUTTIGIEG. NOT “MAYOR PETE”

It’s bad enough that we have to endure Robert Frances O’Rourke – Irish through and through – being called “Beto” as if he were our Latino pal. But now, we have to endure “Mayor Pete” for South Bend, Indiana Mayor and presidential candidate Peter Buttigieg too? I don’t know this man as “Pete”.  And, since I don’t live in...

HOW LOW ARE CNN’S RATINGS?

CNN’s  Ratings are so bad that, last week, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson beat the network by over a million prime time viewers. Please note that I didn’t say Carlson beat any particular CNN show by over a million viewers.  I said prime time, period – as in CNN’s 8:00PM  through 11:00PM shows combined. All three of them. From Thomas Lifson’s article at...

AHAB SCHIFF MAKING A HORSE’S ASS OF HIMSELF (AGAIN)

OK, OK, I admit that Ahab* Schiff (D-CA) making a horse’s ass of himself is nothing new. But this time, while being asked very tough, very fair questions by NBC’s Willie Geist, is a particularly ripe example. Here, see for yourself:     As is obvious, Schiff continues to hang his hat primarily on a single meeting that Donald Trump Jr. attended, in which a Russian (NOT the...

MEXICAN AVOCADOS VS. A CLOSED BORDER: MY VINNY GAMBINI IMPRESSION

According to what’s left of Newsweek, if President Trump follows through on his threat to close the Mexican border (at least until Mexico stops allowing illegals to use it as a route to the United States), avocado prices could triple.  The key excerpt: “Avocado prices could easily double or triple if we shut down the border,” Roland Fumasi, vice president and senior analyst at...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Christine Amanpour, a long-time fixture at CNN who, the network seems to think, is some kind of special property. Here is Ms. Amanpour’s brilliant question to former FBI Director James Comey, about Trump supporters chanting “lock her up” at rallies when Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned: “Of course, ‘Lock Her Up’...

JUSTIN FAIRFAX: A RAPE ACCUSER SPEAKS OUT

THE END OF BIDEN

Two more women have come forward with accusations that Joe Biden took physical liberties that made them uncomfortable. And then there is the unsavory Ukraine deal that Biden’s son, Hunter got – apparently with Dad Joe’s help as Vice President – and Biden’s involvement in the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor investigating it. I have blogged that I don’t think...

Mayor Pugh succeeded Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who, er, declined to run for re-election after the Freddy Gray fiasco…and a week after Gray’s family was awarded a $6.4 million dollar settlement (For WHAT??????). But now Ms. Pugh is on indefinite leave – which comes...

WHY I WON’T MISS, OR MOURN, NIPSEY HUSSLE

“Nipsey Hussle” – real name, Ermias Davidson Asghedom – was killed this weekend in Los Angeles.  He was shot to death near a clothing store he owned.  As I write this, no suspects have named or taken into custody.
