AND, IN OTHER NEWS, FRANCO IS STILL DEAD

Spain’s strongman, Francisco Franco, died in 1975 – the same year that Saturday Night Live came to television.  For the next two years, Saturday Night Live mocked what it considered the overly long coverage of Franco’s death, both before and after it happened, by announcing, as current news each week, that Franco was still dead. I thought of that this morning, as I watched the...

WHAT ISRAEL IS UP AGAINST

So how are our “neutral” media outlets treating Israel these days? From Jackson Richman’s article at newsbusters.org: Mainstream media bias isn’t just against President Trump, but also Israel.

DONNY DEUTSCH: A BIGGER BARROOM LOUDMOUTH THAN TRUMP?

For years, I have referred to Donald Trump as “The world’s richest barroom loudmouth. But he has competition. MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” has a regular, Donny Deutsch.  Deutsch is an opinionated loudmouth with a nasty word or two for people to his right – which covers a vast amount of territory. His latest?  The dismissive reference to President Trump’s...

MORE ABOUT THAT WASHINGTON POST BOMBSHELL ARTICLE

I’ve already blogged about the Washington Post’s bombshell article, the headline of which is: Sessions discussed Trump campaign-related matters with Russian ambassador, U.S. intelligence intercepts show I did so by putting up  Paul Mirengoff’s analysis at powerlineblog.com, which put a pretty significant kibosh on the Post’s claim.

IS HILLARY CLINTON ABOVE THE LAW?

Can someone find me the part of any statute that says “If you run for President and you lose, anything you did illegally is hereby excused”? I haven’t looked for that wording, but I’m pretty sure that, if I did, I wouldn’t find it. Yet there are people who either think it must be there, or have unilaterally decided that, since it should be, that’s the way an...

AN INTRO THAT WAS STATED, AND ONE THAT WASN’T

The intro to a commentary by media has-been keith olbermann, from his latest podcast for Gentlemen’s Quarterly (yep, that’s where he is these days): The videocameras panned and the still cameras clicked and the Russian dictator mumbled something to Trump, something identified in Russia as a reference to the reporters in front of them as ‘these are the ones that insulted...

Ooooohhh. Did you know that Jeff Sessions lied when he said he didn’t discuss the presidential campaign with Russians last year? If you read Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima, and Greg Miller’s article for the Washington Post you “know” that.
