MINNEAPOLIS: THE MAYOR HOLDS A PRESS CONFERENCE…

Betsy Hodges is the Mayor of Minneapolis.  She is a “progressive” Democrat – “progressive” being a euphemism often substituted for “liberal” or “left”. And now she is being attacked by the left – presumably because she is not leftward enough. Mayor Hodges held – or, more exactly, tried to hold – a press conference last...

O.J. SOWHAT

According to Steven Battaglio’s article for the LA Times, about 150 million people watched the televised verdict of o. j. simpson’s murder trial. And the verdict for his parole after 9 years in jail – not for the murder, which he was acquitted of, but for robbery?  Maybe 13.5 million – that’s 91% less. I’m surprised that many watched.  I didn’t.  And...

MAXINE WATERS AND CLINT EASTWOOD

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has told us that she can be convinced to run for President. This is not a joke – at least not in the “funny” sense.  She really is. Her exact words: “I’m not running for anything but my own seat. I don’t have any presidential aspirations. If the millennials want me to do it, I’d do it, though.” Yep, the millennials are lining up throughout...

OLD SPICER

It was bound to happen sooner or later Sean Spicer seemed uncomfortable with, and ill-fitted to, the role of Press Secretary.  And, for the last month or so, Sarah Huckabee Sanders (yes, Mike’s daughter), had more or less taken over his duties. The party line is that Mr. Spicer objected strenuously to the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as Mr. Trump’s communications chief, and it...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

Over the years, this series has covered a lot of different kinds of racism.  But this, I have to admit, is a first.  And, I hope, a last. From Greg Howard’s “commentary” (this one requires quotation marks) in the New York Times: In New York, so much of my life consists of walking in and through crowds. I am, I think, a good walker. I don’t dawdle, and even when walking at...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from what is left of chris matthews – the formerly worthwhile journalist/political analyst, who has gone so far off the deep end you’d have trouble finding him with a laser probe. This comment about President Trump was last night’s intellectual contribution from his “Hardball” show on (where else?) MSNBC: “Well, he seems to derive a...

GERMANY’S “DOH!” MOMENT…

Want to see an amazing discovery? How about this – excerpted from an article in the english-language German website, dw.com: Germany is now hosting almost 700 Islamists thought to pose a terror threat, the federal police chief says. He told a newspaper that left- and right-wing radicals were considered less dangerous. The number of Islamist extremists suspected of being potentially willing...

THE DUKE’S DISPARITY

Apropos of nothing political… …I put on the TV this afternoon, and there was one of the ads for Duke’s Mayonnaise that have been running lately. Since, until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of the brand, I googled it. And this came up on the right side of my screen:   Duke’s Real Mayonnaise, 32...

SOMETHING FOR MEDIA TO IGNORE – AGAIN

Another Clinton scandal in progress – that mainstream media, in keeping with their usual modus operandi, will not cover? Read the follwing excerpts from Brooke Singman ‘s article at foxnews.com and see what you think: The FBI has turned over 7,000 new documents from Anthony Weiner’s private laptop to the State Department as part of a watchdog group’s lawsuit related to last...

WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP FIRE ROBERT MUELLER?

President Trump did not fire Independent Counsel Robert Mueller when it became clear that Mueller was filling his staff with overtly pro-Democrat, pro-Hillary Clinton people – as proven by the DONATIONS they gave to Democrats, including Ms. Clinton herself. That surprised me.  I considered it a clear opportunity to do so. But now it looks like Mueller has decided investigating the Russian...

THE STATE DEPARTMENT PALESTINIAN REPORT

Can this possibly be the State Department under Donald Trump?  Or is this the work of embedded Obama people whom Democrats have stalled the replacement of.  Or some combination of the two? We better find out which fast. From Adam Kredo’s article at Washington Free Beacon: The State Department is facing harsh criticism for claiming in an official report that Israel is to blame for...

CLAREMONT-MCKENNA COLLEGE REGAINS ITS SOUL

From an editorial in today’s New York Post: At least one US college is willing to take serious steps to punish left-wing students who shut down conservative speakers. Claremont McKenna College this week announced disciplinary measures, including lengthy suspensions, against seven students who were part of a mob that blocked an audience from hearing a pro-police speech by Heather Mac Donald...

THE SOCIAL SECURITY SCAM – AND WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT OBAMACARE AND VOTER FRAUD

First, let me show you the scam. Here are the first paragraphs of Elizabeth Harrington’s article for Washington Free Beacon: The Social Security Administration issued nearly $200 million in improper payments by paying people twice for their benefits. The inspector general for the agency found that individuals with more than one Social Security Number received $171 million, according to a...
