ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: DEMOCRAT FUNDRAISING SUPERSTAR

Guess which Democrat House member was the most successful fundraiser of them all in the third quarter? Based on the title of this blog, I have a feeling you already know the answer.  But, just in case, we have this – excerpted from Sam Dorman’s article at foxnews.com: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., pulled in what is being described as an unprecedented fundraising haul in...

HUNTER BIDEN AND CHINA

Most people are aware that there is controversy over Hunter Biden’s gig as a Board of Directors member of Burisma, the scandal-ridden Ukraine energy company. But, given the diligent burial of information about his dealings in China, I doubt very many people are aware that this, if anything, is more odoriferous/more of a money-maker for Biden than Burisma ever was or could be. Excerpted from...

DID RUDY GIULIANI PEDDLE INFLUENCE IN UKRAINE

For better or worse (worse in my opinion, and, I’m betting, yours as well), influence-peddling is business-as-usual in Washington. But if influence-peddling, whether ultimately successful or not, involves the President’s personal lawyer and the Ukraine, that would take it to a very different level. With that in mind, please read the following excerpts from Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom...

THE CURIOUS CASE OF BRENDA LAWRENCE

Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) represents about as safe a Democrat district as there is in Michigan.  She has little to no chance of being unseated next year. So why did she come out against impeaching President Trump several days ago, saying: “You can censure, you don’t have to remove the president.  Sitting here, knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of kicking him...

IS ELIZABETH WARREN’S CANDIDACY ON THE ROPES?

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is a study in how many lies a presidential candidate can tell, and how many ludicrous “free for all” proposals the candidate can pump out to the electorate, and still be a viable candidate. If the latest polling is any indication, we may be finding out our answer.  And it won’t be a very good one for Ms. Warren. Excerpted from Caitlin...

HOW TRUMP CAN “LOCK IN” CREDIT FOR THE ECONOMY

Later today or tomorrow I’ll give you my thoughts on how President Trump can use both the economic news and its burial by both Democrats and media to his advantage:  Me, yesterday. OK, here it is. First, a quick reminder about the state of the economy.  During Donald Trump’s presidency: -The Dow Jones, S&P and NASDAQ averages have risen to all-time highs; -Unemployment has dropped...

MEDIA BIAS? NAAAHHH

Yesterday the Dow industrial average hit a new all-time high. The S&P and NASDAQ averages are also at all time highs, while unemployment continues to sit at half century lows in general and all-time lows for Blacks and Latinos. The amount of time spent on this exceptionally good economic news by CBS, NBC and ABC last night? According to Bill D’Agostino’s article at...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT “BUYING” ELECTIONS

As Michael  Bloomberg prepares to spend part of his $50 billion dollar fortune on campaigns to win the Democrat presidential nomination and then the presidency… …are his Democrat opponents – the ones who have spent months promising free health care for everybody, free tuition for every college student and a raft of other free programs they have no idea how to fund, really going...

THE AGE OF THE CANDIDATES

Donald Trump, our incumbent President, is 73 years old.  Should he win re-election he will be 74 when he is sworn in for a second term. Since age is often an issue in political campaigns, I thought you might be interested to know that, among his five major Democrat challengers: -Elizabeth Warren (born June 22, 1949), if she wins, will be 71 the day she is sworn in.  She would be the oldest...

THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING IMPEACHMENT

As readers of this blog certainly know, I’m no fan of political polls. But when just about every one of them is moving in the same direction, and individual polls are moving in that direction it is hard not to take notice. With that in mind, please look at this excerpt, and chart, from Tess Bonn’s article at thehill.com, and see where interest levels for the possible impeachment of...

WHY MICHAEL BLOOMBERG SHOULD NOT BE RUNNING

Want to see/hear a very successful businessman, media mogul and politician tell you why Michael Bloomberg has no business running for President? That he’s too old (79 when he took office), wouldn’t want to campaign for the next year and a half, and that, to run, he’d have to change all his views and go on an “apology tour”? OK, here it...

WHERE DID JOE BIDEN’S MONEY COME FROM?

Remember when Hillary Clinton told us that she and Bill were broke when they left the White House?  Remember how most of us (some people will believe anything) laughed at that claim? Well, Joe Biden really was broke in 2017, when he left as Vice President of the United States.  And now he’s swimming in dough. What happened? Here is a quick synopsis of Mr. Biden’s former and current...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us – again – from adam schiff, who seems incapable of telling the truth about the “impeachment inquiry” farce he was the ringleader of. This is part of what he wrote in a letter to the House Democratic Caucus: “Over the course of our inquiry, we have uncovered a months-long effort in which President Trump again sought foreign interference in...
