THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from President Donald Trump.  It is pulled from his speech in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to the leaders of just about every Muslim country in the world. Said Mr. Trump: Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death. If we do not...

TODAY’S “TOO GOOD TO CHECK BECAUSE IT’S AGAINST TRUMP” FAKE NEWS STORY

From Alex Pfeiffer’s article at dailycaller.com (bold print is mine): Journalists and pundits spread fake news on Twitter Sunday that Ivanka Trump was engaged in pay-to-play with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The false story started with a Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca Ballhaus misrepresenting an article from her own outlet. The story, “Saudi Arabia, U.A.E. Pledge...

TRUMP’S TRIP SO FAR

I don’t want to canary President Trump’s overseas trip. But if the second half is even close to being as successful as the first, it will be excellent…and will leave Barack Obama’s rancorous, tension-filled, non-productive trips in the dust. I don’t care whether you like or dislike Donald Trump: between the agreements in Saudi Arabia and the obvious warmth between...

JOHN PODESTA: NOT LETTING GO

John Podesta is the left wing activist who chaired Hillary Clinton’s campaign.  So it is hardly surprising that he dislikes Donald Trump, the man who couldn’t beat anyone, but who beat Ms. Clinton – thus making his campaign one of the most monumentally unsuccessful in U.S. history. Now, over a half year since the election debacle, Mr. Podesta still can’t let go – as...

WIKILEAKS, COLLUSION AND THE MURDER OF SETH RICH

What happens if/when newly-appointed special counsel Robert Mueller learns that the source of those Wikileaks revelations during the 2016 presidential campaign was Democrat operative Seth Rich, and that he was murdered because of it? I am not – repeat, not – claiming this is true.  I don’t know one way or the other.  But I am claiming that there is enough pointing in that...

THE NBC “NEWS” HIT JOB

I just watched the NBC “News” report on President Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia, and his subsequent stops before returning home. It was a flat-out, dishonest, negative-spin hit job. Presenting the news of President Trump’s trip, and his Riyadh speech, in even a remotely honest way didn’t even make it out of the starting gate – right down to Kelly O’Donnell...

THE DONALD TRUMP RE-ELECTION COMMITTEE, HARD AT WORK

These people must want Donald Trump to be reelected in 2020. Why else would they act in a way that  is sure  to thrill their hardline supporters, but would repulse just about everyone else? From Cristina Laila’s article at thegatewaypundit.com: The classless Democrats gathered in Sacramento for a state convention on Saturday. They had some harsh words for the President as they chanted...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from a (typically) excellent, intuitive commentary by Caroline Glick, writing for the Jerusalem Post. Ms. Glick focuses on the meeting between President Trump and Russian Foreign Minister Sergie Lavrov, in which Mr. Trump is accuses of imparting highly classified information that put one or more sources for that information at risk. What doe Ms. Glick have to...

LEFT WING “CIVILITY” (CONT.)

Here is another example, from the endless supply of left wing celebrity and media types who are proud to display their incivility toward President Trump in a way that, had they said anything even fractionally as offensive about Barack Obama, might well have summarily ended their careers. From actor Robert De Niro – the latest in a series of equally offensive comments he has made over the...

THE INEXCUSABLE LAXITY OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

There are many things that can be said about DOnald Trump’s administration.  And we can argue over whether his actions as this country’s chief executive are good or bad. But one thing that, to me, is indisputable, and inexplicable, is the fact that he has not aggressively moved to move Obama holdovers out of responsible positions and replace them with his own people. Where do you...

NEW YORK’S VOTER SUPPRESSION

As we experience the ridiculous spectacle of judges telling us that expecting people to demonstrate they are who they say they are in order to vote is “voter suppression”… …here is an example of real voter suppression.  As conducted in New York State. That’s right, New York. Excerpted from Francis Barry’s article at bloomberg.com: Democrats are celebrating the...

DESPERATELY SEEKING…..SOMETHING

Are you into desperate attempts to make something out of  nothing, by writing it in a way that seems to suggest something happened when it didn’t? Here is part of an article by Pamela Brown, Gloria Borger and Eric Lichtblau of CNN, which seems to suggest Donald Trump did something wrong in his interaction with former FBI Director James Comey.  Please read it carefully, then tell me what...

THE REALITY OF MEDIA BIAS, IN TWO CHARTS

Two charts on media bias for you. Here they are, both compiled by Harvard’s Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. The first shows the tone of news coverage over President Trump’s first 100 days in office, by major network and cable news venues: The second shows the tone by individual issue – Fox News Channel, versus other...

ACADEMIC RACISM (THE “GOOD” KIND): CONT.

Here we go again. From Andrew Johnson’s article at the collegefix.com: The faculty government at Western Kentucky University has passed a resolution in support of a student government demand calling for free tuition for black people to make up for slavery, segregation and income inequality. The Student Government Association resolution had demanded reparations “in the form of full and...

HOW TO PERPETUATE THE TRUMP/RUSSIA “ISSUE”

My previous blog pointed out that there still is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia – and has not been for the over half a year Democrats and most mainstream media have desperately sought such evidence. So how do they keep this “story” in the headlines? Well, here’s one way, courtesy of an article from all Trump-hating, all the time...
