THE RECESSION RECISSION

News has just come over the wire that, this month, personal income grew by 0.4% – a rate of 4.8% annually.    And the most recent data show unemployment, including Black, Latino and women’s unemployment, at or near their all-time lows. Then it struck me: it has been weeks since I have heard a word about the supposedly upcoming, even inevitable, recession  Democrats and their media...

THE JOE BIDEN/HUNTER BIDEN ACCESS AXIS

Here is a riddle for you:  How did a loser like Hunter Biden become rich? And here is your answer:  because his father was a Senator, then a Vice President, and used his influence to make him rich. I have written several blogs about this already.  But David Harsanyi’s just-published analysis in the New York Post covers this so well that I’m doing so again. Here are a few...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. adam schiff (D-CA), chairperson of the House Intelligence Committee and hero to Trump haters everywhere. Here is how he described the conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, before yesterday’s testimony by hearing, in which Director of National Intelligence James Maguire testified before the...

ADAM SCHIFF: LYING, BUMBLING INCOMPETENT (AND, IF HE WANTS TO BE, HOUSE MEMBER FOR LIFE)

adam schiff is a liar.  And a bumbling incompetent.  Anyone who heard his BS-a-thon this morning should know that. Here, from his latest blog, is Andy McCarthy’s take, which hits the high – make that low – points very well: House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff’s opening statement at today’s hearing, a grilling of National Intelligence Director Joseph Maguire...

THE RADICAL LEFT’S DAILY DOUBLE

My very quick take (already mentioned in other blogs, but well worth reiterating) on Democrat howls for impeaching Donald Trump is that it is a daily-double victory for the radical left: It puts President Trump’s head on the chopping block; 2. It forces a discussion of Joe Biden’s dirty dealing with his son, Hunter, which – it seems clear to me – is going to take him out...

THE JOKER: WARNER BROS. ISSUES A STATEMENT

What do you do when the people in your industry try to convince the public that they are Social Justice Warriors fully committed against violence in general and guns in particular…while simultaneously raking in huge profits from movies that are as violent, and gun-happy as their writers and special effects people can make them? I raise this issue because Warner Bros. has a movie, called...

ANN COULTER NAILS IT

As regular readers of this blog know, I am far from being a fan of Ann Coulter’s. But I do not deny her abilities as a writer. And when she gets something right – which she most certainly has in her latest commentary – it is well worth reading. Ms. Coulter first takes apart the ridiculous claim that President Trump threatened Ukrainian President Zelensky with the loss of US Aid...

HOW COMPROMISED ARE THE TRUMP-HATING MEDIA?

Read John Hinderaker’s truly disheartening piece at powerlineblog.com and see for yourself. Here’s what you’ll find:  at the end of his hour-long press conference, President Trump responded to the question “Did you ask House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to find a way out of impeachment yesterday?”.  His answer: “Look, she’s lost her way. She’s been taken over...

WHEN A POLITICAL FRENZY TAKES ON ITS OWN LIFE…

…we see mostly anti-Trump material like this from the (formerly somewhat conservative, but now, very suddenly Trump-hating) Drudge Report: Whistleblower raises alarm over White House handling of Ukraine call records... Developing... LAYS OUT OTHER DOCUMENTS AND WITNESSES... Seven-day scramble ends with big gamble... Majority of House members now support impeachment... All circumstantial...

WHEN BIDEN DROPS OUT…

…and don’t doubt for a minute that this impeachment push, which forces media to talk about the Biden video in which he brags about doing what Trump is only accused of, is going to hasten Biden’s departure… …it leaves the field open for Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and maybe Kamala Harris to duke it out.  Everyone else, at least as of now, is in...

A COMMENTARY I WISH I HAD WRITTEN

This commentary was put up on facebook by my cousin, Hana.  She got it from someone named David Cooper. I wish I had written it. Take a look and see why: Corey Booker says he wants to punch the president. Joe Biden says he wants to beat up the president Maxine waters says to get in Republicans’ faces out in public Jimmy Kimmel and other late night hosts joke about assassinating the...

TRUMP’S BIDEN REFERENCE

Peggy Lee said I very well in  her 1969 hit song:  “Is that all there is?” From Kevin Breuninger’s just-published article at CNBC, which summarizes the transcript of President Trump’s telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Vilodymyr Zelenski: President Donald Trump asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to “look into” former Vice President Joe Biden and...

(WHAT I HOPE IS) MY ONE AND ONLY BLOG ON GRETA THUNBERG…

…consists of this link to Scott McKay’s American Thinker article about her, titled “Scoldilocks, Or the Story of Greta Thunberg”. I think Mr. McKay goes over the top in a couple of places.  But, for the most part, he is right on the money about this media-created annoyance. Here is how his article (and this blog) ends: “There will now be two kinds of people,” observed...

ATTACKING THE TRANSCRIPT

Now that President Trump has announced he will release the complete, unredacted transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky… …which strongly suggests that it puts the lie to claims that he threatened to withhold US aid unless Joe Biden was investigated… …the left – so far, Adam “Ample evidence I’m not showing you” Schiff and...

MICHAEL GOODWIN’S EXCELLENT ANALYSIS.

Michael Goodwin, writing for the New York Post, has just published as clear an explanation of what a mega-disaster this impeachment move is as any I have seen (including my own). Here are a few key excerpts. For months, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned itchy Democrats against the perils of impeachment. She should have stuck to her guns. In surrendering to the radicals and the noisy drumbeat of...
