Most of them are elected to public office   What fresh hell is this? Maybe...

SO HOW DID PRESIDENT OBAMA DO ON THE LAST PANDEMIC-POTENTIAL VIRUS?

Now that Democrats and their media allies have decisively trashed President.

Well, Victoria Taft, writing for pjmedia.com, has provided us with the answer.  Click here, and then make your own comparisons. Then tell me what you think. ...

THe TALIBAN “PEACE DEAL”

Today the USA and the taliban signed a “peace deal”.   It is supposed to end the now-18 year old war. Do I trust the taliban to adhere to the terms of this deal? Frankly no. But, then again, it might. And the fact that a deal of any kind, however tenuous, was signed at all is further than any other president has gotten since the war started. With that in mind, my congratulations to...

ONE DEMOCRAT WHO WON’T PLAY POLITICS WITH CORONAVIRUS

In the previous blog I expressed the hope that at least some Democrats would buck the party’s disgusting attempt to pin coronoavirus on President Trump. Well, here’s one for you. The following exchange took place between CNN’s Poppy Harlow and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI): POPPY HARLOW: Given Vice President Pence’s history as Governor dealing with the recent public health crisis...

POLITICIZING CORONAVIRUS

If you do not realize, by now, that Democrats have siezed on the coronavirus and are using it for political purposes, you’re probably wasting your time reading the rest of this blog.  You won’t buy into what I’m putting up and The New York Post editorial board certainly realizes it, and has written a scathing editorial condemning the cynical use of this serious, sometimes...

SOUTH CAROLINA RECKONING

Today is the day we find out whether Joe Biden really does have a lock on the South Carolina Democrat primary, or Bernie Sanders has really moved up so far and so quickly that he is at least a serious challenge to Biden or maybe even the winner. If Sanders wins, Biden’s latest – and, pretty certainly, last – run for the presidency is over.  And Sanders, who is expected to do...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s comes to us from CNN commentator Angela Rye. Here, as stated during Don Lemon’s show yesterday, is Ms. Rye’s take on Donald Trump’s record regarding Black unemployment: “I think Donald Trump does not have a strong record to stand on as it relates to black unemployment. He has Barack Obama’s record to stand on with that.” That so?  Well, ok. ...

CHUCK TODD: SNARK VERSUS LOGIC

Chuck Todd, on yesterday’s Meet The Press snarkcast: “Yesterday he attacked press outlets he doesn’t like, claiming they are trying to make him look bad by inducing panic. This is the President of the United States saying this. Yet it’s the President’s own loyalists in the right-wing media, like recent Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Rush Limbaugh, who are...

SANDERS AND CUBA: POLITICAL THEATRICS AT ITS FINEST

It took a long time.  But it looks like Republicans are finally learning how to play political hardball. From Jason Hopkins’ article at dailycaller.com: Democratic lawmakers Thursday successfully blocked a GOP resolution condemning Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s laudatory comments about the Castro regime. By a vote of 224-189 that fell along party lines, the House of Representatives on...

AS I WATCH AMY KLOBUCHAR’S TOWN HALL ON FOX NEWS CHANNEL…

…I think to myself, again, that President Trump is lucky she has almost no chance to be the Democrat nominee. Amy Klobuchar is intelligent, articulate and makes a lot of sense on a lot of issues – which the format (ask a question and just let her speak) is allowing us to see.  Even when you don’t agree with Ms. Klobuchar you can find the logic in her reasoning. I wonder if she...

From Andrew Kerr’s article at dailycaller.com, we have this: Dozens of Democratic superdelegates say they’re willing to sacrifice party cohesion to prevent Vermont Sen.

JASON JOHNSON’S MSNBC SUSPENSION

How does a reliably left wing commentator get suspended from the MSNBC roster – maybe temporarily, maybe for good (no way to know for sure)? By speaking out more negatively about Bernie Sanders than other MSNBC people..and invoking race in the negativity.  That’s how. Excerpted from Justin Baragona and Maxwell Tani’s article for dailybeast.com: Following MSNBC contributor Dr...
