THE COUNTRY’S EDUCATION….AND THE COST OF THAT EDUCATION

As I write this, there is mayhem in dozens of cities around the country. We are getting an education in what happens when lunatic leftists and street thugs (often one and the same) are handed the streets on a silver platter. The education is extremely expensive.  But are we, the people paying for it, learning anything? And will the education we are paying for stay with us in November?

ANTIFA AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION

From President Trump, via twitter.com (which hasn’t censored it yet – I wonder if they considered doing so): Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization. I wish these anarchist street thugs didn’t make it necessary to do so.  But they did. Now, if I understand what this designation...

THE TRUMP RE-ELECTION COMMITTEE MEETINGS (CONT.)

I just read a very interesting article by David Siders at politico.com, in which he lays out the political implications of post-George Floyd Minnesota. Here are a few key excerpts: Minnesota, the longtime Democratic presidential stronghold that Donald Trump nearly won in 2016, has suddenly become ground zero in a campaign that already promised to inflame racial and cultural divides. The...

A FEW THOUGHTS ABOUT BLACK, AND WHITE, REACTION TO THE “GEORGE FLOYD RIOTING”

I wonder how many Black people support what is being done in the name of George Floyd – even see it as a way of “getting back” at White people….and how many are appalled by it. I wonder how many Black people feel their cause is being damaged rather than helped by what is being done in the name of George Floyd over the past week. I wonder how many Black people who feel this...

DAVID MARCUS’S SUPERB COMMENTARY

Please, please read David Marcus’s superb commentary at thefederalist.com, which makes mincemeat of the beyond-incredible claim, floated by leftist politicians and their media lapdogs, that the anarchy we are seeing in major Democrat-controlled cities across the country is, somehow the work of White supremacists. I acknowledge it is not hard to make mincemeat of the premise itself.  This...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Leon Terrell – a successful civil rights lawyer, long time TV commentator and strong advocate for Black rights. Mr. Terrell, like the rest of us, has been watching what has unfolded in cities around the country these past days.  And he has some strong opinions about it. Here they are: “This is a tragedy. “There is universal acceptance that the...

WHERE POLITICAL POLLING DEPARTS FROM REALITY

As a political observer and a life-long market researcher, I have a great deal of respect for Stan Greenberg.  He is a talented, knowledgeable political pollster. But sometimes he is wrong. And his recommendation that Joe Biden pick Elizabeth Warren as his running mate is, to me, very obviously one of these times. From Alex Thompson’s article at politico.com: Stan Greenberg, one of the...

ANOTHER NIGHT OF ANARCHY

Another night of anarchy in Democrat-controlled cities throughout the country (i.e. where they can get away with it)… …committed by people who value George Floyd only in the sense that his death gave them the chance to riot, loot, vandalize and burn. In other words, thank you, Officer chauvin, for killing George Floyd, we couldn’t have done this without you. The last I heard...

WATCHING THE PRELUDE…

… to another night of anarchists rioting, vandalizing, looting and burning. All three cable networks –  Fox, CNN and MSNBC – are showing the same things that we have seen every other night. Mostly “peaceful” crowds that, we all know, will become riot crowds when it is dark and they can get away with it. The question is, what will law enforcement be allowed to do...

NOT EVEN A BRIEF, SHINING MOMENT

Did you ever see the movie “Miss Congeniality”? If you did, you know that it was about a female FBI agent named Grace Hart (played perfectly by Sandra Bullock) who started out as coarse and unrefined as she could be, and evolved into a more refined, sensitive person. There is a scene when, as the contestant in a beauty pageant, she says something very sweet and positive, making her...

STEVEN HAYWARD’S “THE WEEK IN PICTURES” SAMPLER

Here is this week’s sampler from Steven Hayward’s always-worthwhile “The Week In Pictures” compilation – which you should very definitely click here to see in its entirety. Mr. Hayward’s major concentration is on what a tough-butt Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has turned out to be.  But this sampler primarily concentrates on the material related to Joe...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph comes to us from an unbylined article about the Minneapolis riots published by WCCO, the CBS local affiliate: John Harrington, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, said state leaders have intel that may point to agitators — including white supremacist groups and drug cartels — possibly playing a role in the anarchy. Oh, I see. Say, wasn’t...

NBC’S FAKE NEWS

At 8:55 this morning (Eastern time) I watched a news report (the word “news” does not deserve to be sullied by the way it was used here) on NBC-TV, New York. The video showed last night’s Minneapolis riot in progress, complete with hooded thugs throwing objects as who knows what or who, and buildings burning. Literally, anarchy on the streets. And how did the NBC reporter...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from keith ellison, the hate-filled malevolent “man” Minnesota’s voters were foolish enough to elect Attorney General. Here, via Andrew Mark Miller’s article for the Washington Examiner, is what ellison has to say about the National Guard being called in to (if they are allowed) quell the riots in Minneapolis: “I’d like everyone...

THE TRUMP RE-ELECTION COMMITTEE MEETINGS

A Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee to the neck of a Black suspect who was on the ground, handcuffed. Protests over the treatment of that suspect turned into ultra-violent riots – first, in Minneapolis and then in other cities around the country. Whose fault is that?  Donald Trump’s.  That’s what we are angrily being told by the left – including a large, and...
