AND IN OTHER NEWS

Yeah, I know that impeachment is the overriding issue of the day. But, in passing, I thought I would mention a couple of trifling little nonentities for your amusement. Today it is being reported that jobless claims fell for the 5th straight week.  And that housing construction jumped 16.9% in December – the biggest jump in 13 years. I understand that these little factoids are nothing...

FOR FOLKS WHO THINK THE GAO CLAIM AGAINST TRUMP MEANS ANYTHING…

…here’s some bad news for you. As is not being reported by most mainstream media, but is nonetheless true, the General Accounting Office (GAO) has a history of accusing presidents of “stuff”, which usually is laughed off and ignored. In fact, as Joel B. Pollak of breitbart.com points out, the GAO went after Barack Obama 7 different times during his presidency…and was...

THE REAL IMPEACHMENT STRATEGY

Here, excerpted from today’s editorial in the New York Post (a more lengthy excerpt than I usually use – but definitely use this link to read the entire commentary) is an excellent explanation of Democrats’ real impeachment strategy: Democrats’ strategy for the Senate impeachment trial is apparently to turn it into a never-ending Senate investigation — even though that was...

THE DOW, NASDAQ AND S&P…

…hit new all-time highs today.  Every one of them. Was it the China deal, signed yesterday? And/or the USMCA finally passed today (after being held for a year in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives)? And/or the near-record low unemployment rate? And/or the fast-rising wages – especially for workers at the lower end of the income scale? And/or any of the other good news...

DOES JOE BIDEN ACTUALLY THINK “BETO” O’ROURKE IS LATINO???

You just can’t make this stuff up. This is Joe Biden’s response, when The Dallas Morning News asked him  “If you are the Democratic nominee, would you consider Beto O’Rourke or Julian Castro as a running mate?” “Yes, I would. I’d consider either or both of them.  Look, I’ve spoken to each of them and spent some time talking to them. My plea to both of them is that they...

THE BORN ALIVE INFANT PROTECTION ACT: WEST VIRGINIA

If a baby is born alive, but the mother does not want the baby, should he or she be allowed to live or left to die? That’s a pretty repulsive question, isn’t it?  But it is a necessary one to ask, since this – incredibly – has been a controversial issue for many years. Simply stated, pro-abortion forces – and their mostly-Democrat allies – have fought tooth...

ANDREW MCCARTHY EXPLAINS THE IMPEACHMENT STRATEGY

What, exactly, are House Democrats really up to with the farcical articles of impeachment (neither of which can be found in the constitution), and, now, demands that the senate call witnesses the House did not? Here, from his latest commentary, is former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy’s take: Two things happened simultaneously on Wednesday: (a) The House of Representatives...

THE LEV PARNAS INTERVIEW

Last night Rachel Maddow conducted an interview with Lev Parnas, who,with his pal Igor Fruman, is under indictment for campaign finance fraud and was absolutely reviled by the anti-Trump left – until he agreed to say what Ms. Maddow and the anti-Trump left wanted to hear.  Now he is the Oracle of Delphi. Parnas, minus any actual evidence other than his word, claimed that Trump – and...

PELOSI’S IMPEACHMENT TIMING

Any doubt about why Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment managers just as President Trump was signing a historic deal with China? Any doubt about which of the two stories our Trump-hating media will feature more? Pelosi statement? “He’s been impeached forever. They can never erase that”. And they can never erase what a repulsive political sewer dweller you are, Nancy. ...
