THE TRUMP SURGE AMONG BLACK VOTERS

When it was just the Emerson college poll that showed a 34% approval rate for President Trump among Black voters, it was just a silly outlier. Then when Gallup showed the same 34%, it became a hmmmmm, maybe. And now we have the  NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll showing 33% approval for President Trump among non-White voters. That clattering sound you hear is Democrat strategists around the country...

PROTECTING HUNTER

Poor Hunter Biden. This man is unemployed, running up debt, has to pay up on his divorce settlement, they expect him to support the child he had out of wedlock with a stripper… …and now they (gasp!) expect him to provide his financials so they can see if he’s got the money to do so? This is SO unfair! From Ben Feuerherd’s Page Six article for the New York Post: Hunter...

THANKSGIVING IN A BOOMING ECONOMY

So how is the economy holding up during Thanksgiving – traditionally one of the biggest, maybe the single biggest, shopping time of the year? From Megan Henney at foxbusiness.com, we have this highly encouraging news: Consumers spent a staggering $4.2 billion online on Thanksgiving, a 14.5 percent (increase) from last year and a record high, according to new figures published by Adobe...

ANDY BIGGS’ UNDERSTATEMENT, DEMOCRATS’ PROBLEM

I’m not especially familiar with Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ).  But I now know him to be a master of understatement. My assessment is based on what he says about some of his more vulnerable Democrat counterparts in the House; specifically, where they are veering after the House Intelligence Committee’s adam schiff-orchestrated “impeachment inquiry” – which did nothing to...

HOW WOULD YOU REACT TO THIS?

Apropos of nothing political… …earlier this evening my wife and I were with friends, eating at Federici’s , the iconic Italian restaurant that has been a mainstay of Freehold, New Jersey for almost a century. As she was lamenting my general eating habits (ok, I admit she has a point), I was reaching for my third slice of pizza. This generated her patented “oh for god...

NEWSWEEK: UNWOKE, OKEY-DOKE WITH BLOWING SMOKE

Yes Virginia, there is a Newsweek.  Barely, but it’s still there, sort of. However, if what is left of this once-meaningful media venue keeps putting up things like this, even its remnants aren’t going to survive. From Charlie Spiering’s article at breitbart.com: President Donald Trump mocked Newsweek after they reported Thursday he spent Thanksgiving golfing and tweeting. In...

MICHELLE GOLDBERG’S “BIG LIE” LIE

Michelle Goldberg is about as far left as so-called “mainstream journalists” get.  Therefore she, of course, has a welcome mat out for her on the New York Times’ op-ed page. Here, from Ms. Goldberg’s latest screed, is a fascinating paragraph, describing, as she defines them, one of the two big lies about President Trump and the 2016 election (no, these people cannot get...

A RIDICULOUS TRUMP POSTER AND A SERIOUS POLICY COMMITMENT

It isn’t often that you can combine one of the (ongoing series of) ridiculous things President Trump does, with something serious that he should be commended for. But today’s the day. Earlier this week, Trump actually tweeted out this photoshopped picture of his head superimposed over a still of Sylvester Stallone’s young body, from when he was shooting the iconic movie...

BUTTIGIEG AND BLACK VOTERS: A DIPLOMATIC ASSESSMENT

Do you want to see an example of what, for lack of a better term, I will call journalistic diplomacy? Read the beginning of Dawn Baumgartner Vaughan’s article for the Charlotte (NC) News-Observer, discussing Democrat presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s attempts to generate Black support: Black voters are a major Democratic voting bloc, and a few months before the presidential...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Erielle Davidson, writing for thefederalist.com. In her latest commentary, Ms. Davidson, after discussing an ugly interview conducted by BBC’s Andrew Neil with jeremy corbyn, the thinly-disguised anti-Semite who heads Britain’s Labour Party, had this to say about how corbyn’s views comport with those of the United States left: As I’ve...

A ONE-SIDE-ONLY IMPEACHMENT ARTICLE

I just read a commentary written by politico.com’s Heather Caygle, Sarah Ferris and Kyle Cheney, titled, “Dems see one last chance to boost public support for impeachment”. Assuming the intention was to provide readers with neutral information, I have to say this article troubled me. Let me tell you why. First off, there are the references to impeachment polling.  That...
