ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ’S LATEST IDIOCY

When it comes to idiocy, alexandria ocasio-cortez is so far ahead of the rest of the field I doubt they can even see her dust. Here is her latest example:  an equation of the holding centers for illegal immigrants with concentration camps: “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border.  And that is exactly what they are.  They are concentration...

JOE BIDEN’S LATEST GAFFE

Who could possibly turn a statement about the value of working together in a bipartisan way into a gaffe – a major one at that? The answer?  Joe Biden. Excerpted from Katey Glueck’s article for the New York Times: Mr. Biden, speaking at a fund-raiser at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City on Tuesday night, stressed the need to “be able to reach consensus under our system,” and...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from MSNBC’s Kasey Hunt. Yesterday, before a commercial break, Ms. Hunt teased the next segment by telling viewers: “Still to come, Joe Biden references his relationships with two former Republican colleagues at an event in New York City. The only problem? They were both segregationists.” Well, that’s not the only problem, Ms. Hunt. The other...

WILL NANCY PELOSI ALLOW A VOTE ON THE “NAFTA” REPLACEMENT

Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is on the spot. President Trump negotiated a re-do of the NAFTA agreement – the one that has screwed the USA for the past 25 years.   It is called USMCA (the United States Mexico Canada Agreement). Mexico is on board (its senate just voted 114-4 for passage). Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau is fully supportive of the deal, and according to...

WHAT PASSES FOR DIALOGUE ON THE “MORNING JOE” SHOW

Discussing President Trump’s rally in Orlando, we have these nuggets from MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show host, Joe Scarborough, and his chronic guest, John Heilemann Scarborough: “This is Elvis in ’77, just kind of lumbering across the stage, sweating.” Heilemann: “In Graceland, in front of like the six televisions, with a big, huge bottle of...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT TRUMP’S ORLANDO SPEECH

Last night President Trump made a 76 minute “campaign kickoff” speech to an SRO crowd in Orlando, Florida. He did it without benefit of notes or a teleprompter. There are 24 Democrat candidates – so far – and one two-time loser (once to Obama and once to Trump) who’d probably love another crack at it. My question: could any of them have made an extemporaneous 76...

CNN SHOWS – AGAIN – WHY TRUMP CALLS IT “FAKE NEWS”

I sometimes wonder if, somehow, President Trump slipped a mole into CNN headquarters, to plant “stories” that Trump could then call them out on. Case in point:  This article, by CNN’s Kevin Liptak and Matthew Hoye, which begins as follows: President Donald Trump responded to a question about the Central Park Five during his appearance before reporters on Tuesday, once again...

ERIC SWALLWELL: A LEGEND IN HIS OWN MIND

Eric Swallwell is a Democrat house member from California.  My impression of Rep. Swallwell is that he is an arrogant man, disdainful of people who disagree with his leftward stance on just about everything (if he has a position that is not to the left, I have yet to hear of it). Mr. Swallwell thinks this makes him presidential material.  To that end, he is one of the 24 announced Democrat...

THE WALLS CLOSING IN (CONT.): EMAIL CRIMINALITY

Just how much criminality was involved in the attempt to prevent Hillary Clinton’s emails from being scrutinized? Here’s an answer for you, via the opening paragraphs of Gregg Re and Catherine Herridge’s article at foxnews.com: The State Department revealed Monday that it has identified “multiple security incidents” involving current or former employees’...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from America’s single most prolific gaffe machine: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. Speaking before a “poor people’s summit” in Washington DC yesterday, Mr. Biden informed it, and us, of the following: “First thing I would do as president is eliminate the president’s tax cut.”  That, no doubt, got a great reaction from...
