THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

As you are probably aware, President Trump is in Texas today, meeting with officials and generally doing PR for his advocacy of a wall between the United States and Mexico.  So CNN sent Jim Acosta – one of its most visible and vocal Trump haters (among the overflow crowd of them CNN employs) to tag along. Since Mr. Trump has talked about declaring a national emergency over illegal border...

A QUICK POINT ABOUT MEDIA COVERAGE…

… of yesterday’s meeting between President Trump, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. Minority Leader Schumer claims that President Trump had a temper tantrum, slammed his hand on the table and stormed out of the room. President Trump claims he did no such thing;  he did not slam his hand on the table and just walked out of the room – a...

DEFENDING REP. SHEILA JACKSON LEE

Given her usually hard left politics, I don’t often blog in support of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX).  But, in this instance, I think she makes a perfectly valid point and is being unfairly maligned. On December 30, Jazmine Barnes, a Black 6 or 7-year old girl (depending on which account you read) was shot and killed in Houston. Initial reports put a white, bearded man in a red pickup...

THE DEMOCRAT ‘IT’S NOT A CRISIS” MEME

Sometimes I think politicians have secretly made a bet on who can get the public to believe/accept the most ridiculous position on a given issue. In the United States, Democrats are usually the culprits – not because Republicans are incapable of the same behavior, but because, since most most media are in bed with/willing to go along with Democrats, they have far more latitude to do...

A SUGGESTION FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP

The country has not elected me president.  And, as you don’t need me to tell you, it isn’t going to do so in the future. But a mix of many years in marketing research and consultancy, coupled with some basic common sense, tells me that the best thing President Trump can do now, from both a strategic and political standpoint, is immediately declare a national emergency to build the...

ALEXANDIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: THE DAILY IDIOCY

This probably will not be an ongoing feature because, eventually (sooner rather than later, I imagine) Democrats will force Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to just shut up. But for the moment?  Here’s her latest, via an excerpt from the offensively named “allahpundit” at hotair.com: Why are we funding an agency that had a child die in its custody on Christmas Eve, she asks? Except...

ANOTHER DAY THAT RUTH BADER GINSBURG…

… did not show up at the Supreme Court to hear arguments. The party line is that Justice Ginsburg is working at home while she recuperates from her latest bout with cancer (or is it the broken ribs she suffered when she fell, or maybe something else that we haven’t even heard about). But, as time goes by, those claims seem further and further from the truth. Every day Justice Ginsburg...

THE GREAT MANAFORT POLLING DATA HOPE

Well, it’s all over for President Trump. It must be, because mainstream media are now trumpeting the latest damning information about him, which proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. And what damning information is this? Get ready, and hold on to your hats. Here it comes! According to information...

A “GET RID OF ISRAEL” INITIATIVE I FULLY SUPPORT.

As anyone who reads this blog certainly knows, I am an avid supporter of Israel – i.e. the middle east nation. But I am just as avidly opposed to another Israel – i.e. scott israel, the arrogant, incompetent sheriff of Broward Country, Florida. For that reason it gives me great pleasure to report that he soon may be out of a job. From Nic Rowan’s article at...

THE WALL NANCY PELOSI IS IN FAVOR OF

Yes, Nancy Pelosi says a wall is immoral and ineffective. But, apparently not every wall, as you can see below: And why does Ms. Pelosi have a wall around her San Francisco home? I’ll guess that it is to keep out the people who she doesn’t want to be there. I’ll have to guess, because mainstream media, which are, for the most part, so happy to quote her and Chuck Schumer on how...

UH, ABOUT THAT RECESSION…

On December 21, the Dow Jones Average closed at 21,792 – down almost 5,000 from it’s all-time high earlier this year. Trump haters in general, and Democrats in particular, gleefully pointed to this as a sign that the economy was collapsing and the recession they had been itching to blame on Trump was imminent. Since then, the December jobs report came out, showing a remarkable 312,000...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Don Lemon, a Trump-hating CNN show host (talk about redundancy!). Last night, before President Trump made his statement about a border wall, there was an exchange between Lemon and his CNN counterpart, Chris Cuomo, during which Lemon complained  that: “The president will say what he has to say. People will believe it whether the facts are true or not. ...

THE TWO SPEECHES IN A FEW SENTENCES

Trump:  We must have the wall, it’s what border security people tell us is necessary to stem the flow of illegals, and prevent, among those illegals, of violent criminals, drug cartel people and gang members from coming into the country. Pelosi and Schumer:  We support border security but offer not one specific way to accomplish it.  Stop the government shutdown and we’ll negotiate...
