THE OLIVIER KNOX WHCA WHINEFEST

Did President Trump make the right decision by not showing up at the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) dinner last night? Well, let me show you part of what its President, Olivier Knox, got in front of the microphone and said – in rust, with my comments in blue: “I don’t want to dwell on the president.  This is not his dinner. It’s ours, and it should stay ours. Good. ...

THE NEW YORK TIMES’ “APOLOGY”

Yesterday I blogged about an overtly anti-Semitic “cartoon” which appeared in Thursday’s edition of the International New York Times. Here, from that blog, is what The Times published: That is President Trump, wearing a yarmulke, blind, being led by a dog with Benjamin Netanyahu’s face, wearing a Jewish star. Sick enough for you? And now – after everyone saw and digested...

JOHN EARNEST’S OPEN LETTER

Hours before john earnest, the sick, depraved, Trump-hating anti-Semite killed one person and injured others in a Poway, California synagogue yesterday, he apparently put up an “open letter” explaining why he did it. The above link is to an NBC News story which describes the “open letter” this way: The 8chan post appears near identical to the one Brenton Tarrant left hours...

THIS “CARTOON” WAS PUBLISHED THURSDAY IN THE NEW YORK TIMES’ INTERNATIONAL EDITION

That is President Trump, wearing a yarmulke, blind, being led by a dog with Benjamin Netanyahu’s face, wearing a Jewish star. If julius streicher were still alive he would have proudly published this in Der Stürmer.  But, instead, there it is in the New York Times. Here is Donald Trump Jr.’s reaction, as reported in Kyle Morris’s article at breitbart.com: Donald Trump...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Lawrence H. Summers. Before showing you these paragraphs, however, allow me to detail Mr. Summers’ credentials, via his short-form professional biography from wikipedia.com: Lawrence Henry Summers (born November 30, 1954) is an American economist, former Vice President of Development Economics and Chief Economist of the World...

MATT TAIBBI’S HONESTY (HOW BAD WILL IT HURT HIS HARD-LEFT CRED)

Matt Taibbi has done it again. Like Glenn Greenwald, Mr. Taibbi is a solidly leftward writer….but one who is capable of disallowing his political beliefs from overriding his journalistic integrity. In that connection, Taibbi has written a commentary for Rolling Stone with the following headline and sub-head – which should give you a very clear idea of what comes afterwards: The Press...

A POLITICAL AD THAT WRITES ITSELF

How can you go wrong with a political ad that doesn’t just quote your opponents, but shows videos of them saying what you’re nailing them for? This past week, Bernie Sanders told a town hall audience that he believes dzhokhar tsarnaev, the terrorist who, with his brother, killed three and horribly injured many others in their Boston Marathon attack, should be given the right to...

THE BETO BLOWDOWN

Robert Frances O’Rourke had a big rally at the University of Nevada – Las Vegas yesterday… …except it wasn’t such a big rally after all, as described in the following tweet written by Bloomberg’s Emily Kinery: Emma Kinery@EmmaKinery Around 35 people here to see Beto O’Rourke at UNLV. The rally was supposed to be held in the courtyard outside...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes from the increasingly bizarre ramblings of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. Here, from yesterday’s appearance on Andrea Mitchell’s daytime show, is his advice to Democrats on their course of action for the 2020 presidential election: “I think the message to Democrats is don’t blow this one. You blew it in 2016. You lost to Trump. Nobody should have ever...

DONALD TRUMP: UNMUZZLEABLE

Let me start with the last paragraph of a blog I wrote yesterday, discussing the fact that Democrat challengers to Joe Biden will waste no time in going after him: If Donald Trump is smart about this (politically, that’s quite a stretch), he will, for just this once, shut the hell up and let Biden’s fellow Democrats do the work. Well, he isn’t and he didn’t. Here is the key part...

THE FIRST QUARTER GDP

Based on polling of financial people, Dow Jones estimated that first quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth would be a very good 2.5%. The just-released actual growth?  an excellent 3.2%. For months, there have been warnings of an impending, even imminent, recession.  While no one can tell the future for sure, this growth number – along with a stock market rebound that puts the Dow...

THE PUGH STINK GETS EVEN STINKIER

Catherine Pugh is the Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland.  She succeeded Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who declined to run for re-election after the Freddy Gray fiasco. Now it’s Pugh’s turn. As detailed in my blog of April 2, Mayor Pugh is embroiled in a major scandal relating to the sale of a series of children’s books she wrote…and the purchase of 20,000 of them by a company...

THE COLLUSION DELUSION: A LITTLE IMMODESTY

In the past two weeks you almost certainly have heard/seen the term “Collusion Delusion” used by various media people – either to defend President Trump against the charge that his campaign colluded with Russia or to sneer at the claim that he didn’t. But where did that cute little rhyme-description come from? I can’t swear I was the first to use it.    But if I...
