IS GALLUP AWARE THERE ARE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?

How do you ask an entire battery of questions on immigration, without once asking the public whether it distinguishes between people who enter the country legally or illegally? Ask Gallup.  Because, when you read their just-published study on immigration, you’ll find that is exactly what they did. Click here for the study’s summary and implications, and here for its full statistical...

The U.S. holocaust memorial museum speaks

 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s  stupid, ignorant comparison of the holding centers for illegals with concentration camps has gotten the attention of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Here is the beginning of the statement it issued: “The United States Holocaust Memorial the Museum unequivocally rejects 0efforts to create. 0panalogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether...

THE TRUMP INTERVIEW: A CLUSTER-CHUCK

Chuck Todd’s interview of President Trump aired on Meet The Press yesterday. Todd’s interview technique began and ended at asking Mr. Trump a series of “gotcha” questions, then breaking in before he finished answering them. Donald Trump is no paragon of restraint; far from it.  But for this interview, he must have been channeling Mohandas Gandhi. If it were me, I would...

DEMOCRATS’ TAYHLOR COLEMAN PROBLEM

Have you ever heard of Tayhlor Coleman? Probably not.  But you certainly should have. Here is the first paragraph of Brent Scher’s latest article at freebeacon.com, which should tell you why: A Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee official tapped last week to lead a new multimillion-dollar initiative to connect with “people of color and younger Americans” deleted...

DOUBLING DOWN ON STUPID AND IGNORANT

With a blog title like that one, you have to assume there’s a good chance I’m writing about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And you’d be right in that assumption. Last week, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez compared the holding centers overloaded with illegal immigrants (a situation Democrat leaders tell us is not a crisis) with concentration camps. For anyone who knows what an actual concentration...

BERNIE SANDERS: NOT TO BE OUTDONE….

….the Washington Post is reporting that he will propose eliminating all student debt.  Magically, mystically, no student will owe a thing. The 1.6 trillion dollars this leaves outstanding?  That’s no problem at all:  it will be on the taxpayers. As for the students who actually have been paying their loans, or already paid them in full?  Tough luck, suckers. You’re out the...

THE IRAN STRIKE TRUMP FOLLOWED THROUGH ON

When President Trump declined to strike Iran’s military targets, at an estimated cost of 150 lives… …it didn’t mean he wasn’t striking Iran at all.  And the strike that he did OK, probably does far more harm to Iran than the aborted military alternative. Read this excerpt from Tami Abdollah’s article for the Associated Press and see for yourself: U.S. military...

IS “MAYOR PETE” PETERING OUT?

‎Remember when Peter Buttigieg, the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, replaced Robert Frances “Beto” O’Rourke as media’s Great Not-Trump Hope? I’m sure you do.  It wasn’t that long ago. But now,  media have, to a great extent, disengaged “Mayor Pete” (the friendly nickname his people hoped would stick) from front-row status. Is one of the reasons...

SHOULD DEMOCRATS PAY REPARATIONS (CONT.)

In February, after Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris come out in favor of paying reparations to Black people for slavery, I wrote a blog asking whether Democrats in particular should be the ones doing so. Now it is June, and it turns out that most of the two dozen Democrat presidential candidates are also on board the reparations train – and a House Judiciary Subcommittee has held hearings...

A QUICK WORD ABOUT THE RAPE CHARGE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

A female writer (I won’t mention her name) has written a book.  And, since she is not very well known and the prospects for book sales are not very good, she has tossed in a claim that, about 25 years ago, Donald Trump raped her in a dressing room at the Bergdorf Goodman department store in Manhattan. Left with no credible explanation is: -How Trump managed to get into a woman’s...

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY

Today’s quotes – there are two of them – come to us from the junior senator, and presidential hopeless (not hopeful – he doesn’t have a chance of winning) from my adopted home state of New Jersey, Cory Booker. The first is from a statement he issued Wednesday, concerning rival presidential aspirant Joe Biden’s proud speech about working with rabid...

TRUMP’S ICECAPADE

President Trump has suddenly called off the ICE raids and mass deportations of illegals for two weeks. He says that it is at the request of Democrats, and that he is willing to give them time to work with him on a more palatable solution to the tidal wave of illegals streaming over our border. Like his calling off the Iran strike, this may be a clever bargaining ploy. It may be his opportunity to...

A BLACK CONSERVATIVE’S VIEW OF REPARATIONS

This blog is dedicated to anyone who thinks that all Black people must be hot to trot for getting reparations. In case Burgess Owens’ testimony in last week’s  the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties hearing didn’t convince you this is not a monolithically-held position, take a look at the following excerpts from Lloyd...

ANOTHER REASON TO DISREGARD NBC “NEWS”

Here are the first three paragraphs of an article by NBC “News”‘s Dan De Luce and Shelby Hanssen and Owen Hayes which, incredibly, is presented as news rather than commentary: To supporters of the Iran nuclear deal, it’s no surprise that President Donald Trump is now facing a potential war with Iran. Long before Trump was elected, advocates of the nuclear agreement —...

TRUMP’S IRAN INDECISION

Why did President Trump allow the military to prepare an imminent strike against Iran, then back off at the last minute? Was it really because, just before giving the OK, he asked how many Iranians would die and decided it was too high a price to pay for the downing of an unmanned drone? That’s pretty implausible.  He didn’t need to be told that a lot of Iranians would die if such...
