THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from the latest commentary of Tim Alberta, the Chief Political Correspondent at politico.com. They concern the difference between the Democrat Party’s primary-season structure in 2016 and the one it is dealing with today: In 2016, Hillary Clinton was served the Democratic presidential nomination on a silver platter. With a monopoly on the left’s biggest...

ANTIFA THUGGERY IN PORTLAND

Is Portland, Oregon still part of the United States? Or is it being run by violent, lunatic-left mobs – like the masked “antifa” crowd which reacted to Andy Ngo, a conservative journalist who has been critical of antifa by stealing his equipment, then physically assaulting him, then pelting him with “milkshakes” (which, according to Portland police, may also have...

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN NORTH KOREA

President Trump has made an unprecedented foray into North Korea, after being invited to meet with its deranged man-child head of state (by familial inheritance), kim jung-un. I have no idea what they will accomplish in this meeting, but hope that a) it will be something that b) benefits the United States. We’ll see.

JIMMY CARTER: PLEASE STICK TO BUILDING HOUSES

Jimmy Carter, at almost 95 years of age, is the oldest living President in United States history. I greatly admire Mr. Carter for his work with Habitat for Humanity which, among other things, builds simple housing for poor people. But there are things I do not at all admire Jimmy Carter for. One of them is his abysmal record as a one-term President.  Another is his unwavering hatred for Israel...

COMMERCIALIZING KAMALA

During the second debate, one of the most poignant – though obviously scripted – moments was Kamala Harris nailing the fast-sinking Joe Biden by referencing his comity with southern segregationist senators talmadge and eastland (but not noting that they were both Democrats, of course) and then describing her childhood remembrance of being bussed to school to achieve racial...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come from Marc Thiessen’s latest commentary for the Washington Post (via the Philadelphia Inquirer). Mr. Thiessen understands – as anyone with the must rudimentary understanding of economics should – that Democrat candidates’ almost universal disposition toward giving “free” stuff out by the trillions, while ignoring our immigration...

A QUICK SUGGESTION TO ANSWER PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TRUMP SAID THAT NAZIS ARE “VERY FINE PEOPLE”

Two years later, and I still come across articles and hear TV commentators informing me that President Trump called the nazi wannabes in Charlottesville, VA “very fine people”. The fact that he did no such thing – as anyone who bothers to read the transcript of what he actually did say knows – doesn’t seem to faze them. But since his actual words – taken 100%...

NANCY PELOSI’S CAVE-IN ON BORDER FUNDING

For months, a humanitarian aid bill providing services for the illegals streaming over our southern border was held up by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi – with major support from her Democrat cohorts – because it didn’t contain a bunch of Democrat-preferred additional gimmes and accommodations to the illegals.  Even after the senate rejected her version of the bill Pelosi...

A FEW FROM “THE WEEK IN PICTURES”

With my standard imaginary hat-tip to powerlineblog.com’s Steven Hayward, here are a few from his compilation of the more telling pictures/cartoons put out about this week’s Democrat debates (but be sure to use the link, go to Hayward’s blog, and see the rest.  They’re just as good):

DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES VS. THE COUNTRY

How bad was the showing for Democrats in this week’s debates? Well, if you believe polling – in this case, the Rasmussen poll – there is an answer: A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 25% of Likely U.S. Voters consider most of the announced candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination to be about the same as they are in...

THE DISGUST OF A TRUMP-HATER: JOE SCARBOROUGH’S ASSESSMENT OF THE DEBATES

With a tip of my imaginary hat to Marina Pitofsky at thehillcom, here are a few of the more salient – and saline – comments about last night’s Democrat debate from MSNBC’s former Republican and overt Trump-hater, Joe Scarborough: “With apologies to our friends and watching, last night was a disaster for the Democratic Party.  My only hope is people were not watching...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE “FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ILLEGALS” ISSUE

As you may be aware, when the 11 participants in yesterday’s Democrat debate were asked, by a show of hands, to indicate whether they supported free healthcare for illegals, every one of the 11 raised a hand, indicating he/she would. My question:  why didn’t the moderators then ask the 11 to define what the word “free” means? Because, if somebody is paying for this health...

IS NICOLLE WALLACE AN IDIOT, A LIAR OR BOTH?

Nicolle Wallace is MSNBC’s idea of a “Republican” – that is, someone who once was a Republican, now falls over herself to savage Republicans, but can technically be called one because of her past. I just read Ms. Wallace’s reaction to the completely unsubstantiated, utterly ludicrous claim made by E. Jean Carroll that Donald Trump “raped” her in a...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from New York’s chameleon senator (What do I have to be to get your vote?  Ok, that’s what I am.  You’re welcome):  Kirsten Gillibrand. Here, from her going-nowhere performance in last night’s Democrat debate, was Ms. Gillibrand’s history lesson about illegals and children: “One of the worst things about President Trump that...

THE LATEST ISRAEL/HAMAS “TRUCE”

Well, we have another “truce” between Israel and hamas – the terrorist organization which runs Gaza. From an article at israelnationalnews.com: Israel confirmed Friday morning that it had reached an agreement for a truce with the Hamas terror organization, hours after Arab media outlets reported on the deal. A senior Israeli official confirmed to Army Radio – Galey...
