ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF “GOOD” RACISM

I’ve talked a lot over the years about what I sarcastically refer to as “good racism” – i.e. overt racism that is perfectly acceptable to the left and their media lapdogs. Here, excerpted from Heather Caygle’s article at politico.com, is the latest example: The executive director of the House Democrats’ campaign arm is stepping down amid an outcry from Democratic...

JUST HOW TRIVIALIZED HAS THE TERM “RACISM” BECOME?

In the previous blog I lamented the fact that use of the term racism has gone from being a major accusation, deserving of serious attention, to a meaningless, reflex-reaction triviality. In case you have any doubt about this, let me put up the following excerpt from an article, written two years ago by dailycaller.com’s Amber Randall.  I think it probably will give you a good sense of...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Ned Ryun, writing for amgreatness.com.  In his latest commentary, Ryun brings home how significant the power of tech and social media giants can be, and how much they can effect our elections – thus, our democracy. Last week, mostly lost in the news cycle of Trump versus “the squad” and the anticipation of the Mueller hearings, was the testimony...

HOW BAD ARE THINGS IN BALTIMORE?

President Trump – in typically overstated, bloviated barroom loudmouth fashion – has raised the issue of what condition Elijah Cumming’s congressional district (Maryland’s 7th) and, more broadly, the entire city of Baltimore, is in. We have found out that, after 23+ years of Rep. Elijah Cummings’ representing District 7, it remains in horribly bad condition –...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from President Trump.  It concerns the howls of outrage and cries of racism he generated by calling out the uselessness of Rep. Elijah Cummings for his mostly inner-city Baltimore congressional district over the last 23 years… …and, pathetically, it is accompanied by a grievously biased editorial commentary by an alleged source of straight news. First...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Jeffrey Lord, writing for newsbusters.org. In his latest commentary, Mr. Lord lays bare the disconnect between what basic journalism is supposed to be and how our media handle stories related to President Trump, by citing the Mueller testimony and the Puerto Rico corruption mess. You’ve got the link above, and I urge you to read every word of this...

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: THE DESPERATION PHASE

I wonder how many readers remember that Kirsten Gillibrand is a U.S. Senator running for the Democrat presidential nomination.  Frankly, I wonder how many readers even remember the name Kirsten Gillibrand. There are over 20 candidates vying for that nomination.  And, not surprisingly they include a lot of flotsam and jetsam who are going nowhere, but either not realizing as much or deluding...

SO TELL ME: WHICH SIDE IS ENDANGERED?

We have heard, over and over again, that Donald Trump endangers media by using the term “fake news”. We continue to hear this, even though, at least so far, the only endangered people seem to be those who dare to support Donald Trump. Want another of the countless examples?   Click here.  Then tell me which side is endangered. Incidentally, in reading the comments, several indicate...

DOES MAUREEN DOWD HATE EVERYONE?

This blog’s title occurred to me after reading New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd’s latest commentary.  I wonder if there is a more embittered, unhappy person in media. Ms. Dowd hates the “progressive puritans” as she calls them, for being so unyielding in their hatred of everyone else, that they might cause voters to hate the people they should hate less than they...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Alan Dershowitz, the famed Harvard Law professor – who has irretrievably forfeited his right to being treated fairly by our leftward media, for the crime of daring to support Israel and, occasionally, to support President Trump. The New Yorker – or, more exactly, what is left of this once relevant publication – is putting out a...

HOW LEFT-WING IS GOOGLE?

This left wing. From Corinne Weaver’s article at newsbusters.org: Google engineer Greg Coppola, who was suspended by his company for speaking to Project Veritas, published a July 25 post on Medium analyzing Google News. Coppola re-enacted a project done by PJ Media’s Paula Boylard in order to demonstrate Google’s liberal manipulation of its algorithms. Using what he called “data...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Jack Brewer, a former NFL player who is now dedicated to pursuing humanitarian enterprises. Mr. Brewer has an interesting take on President Trump’s interaction with Black citizens.  Here’s part of it: “…billions of dollars are going into black communities right now because of opportunity zones with Ben Carson and President Trump. Not...

TWO WINS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Yesterday, by a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump can use $2.5 billion dollars of military funds to build the Mexican border wall.  If not for the appointments of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, both of whom voted in favor, it is very likely this would have turned out differently. And, also yesterday, Guatemala reacted to President Trump’s threat of economic tariffs...
