FERRIS MUELLER

Credit for the title of this blog belongs to someone else.  I didn’t come up with it (though I avidly wish I did), I read it. But its sarcasm, directed at the “Independent Counsel” who, in reality, is a BFF of fellow former FBI director James Comey, the man who orchestrated this investigation via an apparently illegal leak, and who has stacked his staff with Democrats, several...

A JEWISH REPUBLICAN AT THANKSGIVING

Bruce Bialosky is an extremely accomplished financial analyst and writer, married to an extremely accomplished woman. But he and – based on his latest column, excerpts of which are below – his wife, are conservative Republicans.  And Jewish. Mr. Bialosky has decided to chronicle the difficulty in being a conservative Republican in a Jewish family by writing about this year’s...

KATHY GRIFFIN’S RIGHTEOUS ANGER AT KATHY GRIFFIN

Poor Kathy Griffin. She’s upset, really upset, with Kathy Griffin.  And who can blame her? Kathy Griffin, after all, put up that picture of Kathy Griffin holding the bloody, decapitated head of President Trump…which was considered so repulsive that even people who despise Trump as much as Kathy Griffin does were sickened by it. And because Kathy Griffin put that picture up, Kathy...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Al Franken; the same Al Franken who has, several times now, “apologized” to LeeAnn tweeden for molesting and ridiculing her. Years go, Franken made another “apology”. This one was to Leslie Stahl, after proposing a “comedy” skit in which she would be date raped by Andy Rooney. Here is what Franken said about that apology in...

URANIUM ONE: THE REAL COLLUSION SCANDAL

Here are the first three paragraphs of John Solomon and Alison Spann’s article at thehill.com: Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow...

THE HOLLYWOOD ACCESS TAPE TRANSCRIPT

Since, for the (seemingly) 57,926th time this week I have read or heard that Donald Trump said he forced himself on women on that infamous 2005 locker-room-quality Access Hollywood tape of Trump talking to TV personality Billy Bush, I thought it would be a good idea to put up a complete, verbatim transcript, so you can decide for yourself. Here it is, unedited, from the October 8th, 2016 New York...

BLACK AND BLUE LIVES MATTER

Baltimore homicide detective Sean Suiter was killed on Wednesday, while engaging a suspect who pulled a gun and shot him dead. Detective Suiter was Black. blacklivesmatter has not said so much as one word about this.  Not about Detective Suiter, not about his wife and five children, nothing. Maybe that name should be changed to someblacklivesmatter.  Or blackcops’livesdon’tmatter. ...

STEVE HAYWARD’S WEEK IN PICTURES

Every week, powerlineblog.com’s Steve Hayward puts up “The Week In Pictures”, a compendium of funny, ironic and teeth-gnashing political cartoons. And, as in other weeks, I have selected a small number of them to show here…which, I hope, will spur you to use the link I’ve provided and go to Mr. Haywards’ blog where you can see all the rest. Here they...

WISHING FOR IT…AND GETTING IT

“Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it”. Those are the words to an old saying; one which Democrats ignored as they went after Roy Moore on what, with one exception, were decades-old allegations of mostly minor sexual improprieties which cannot possibly be proven or disproven. The exception:  if Moore groped a 14 year old and put her hand on his genitals, he is a pig and...

HILLARYPOCRISY IN ACTION

Remember when Hillary Clinton was aghast at the possibility that Donald Trump suggested he might the 2016 election? Let me remind you via the first paragaph of Patrick Healy and Jonathan Martin’s coverage of their October 19th debate – a stunningly one-sided “news report” that was disgracefully partisan even by New York Times standards (more about this further on): In a...

THE LEFT WING “RESISTANCE” AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

Do you by any chance recall the furor over Donald Trump’s comment, during last year’s oCTOBER presidential debate, that he would wait and see whether he’d accept the results of the election, on the grounds that it might be rigged?  Do you remember the howls of outrage from Democrats and their media surrogates over this denial of the electoral process? Well that was then –...

THE MOORE/FRANKEN DOUBLE STANDARD – SO IT STARTS

With a tip of my imaginary hat to Mark Finkelstein and his partially eponymous finkelblogger.com, here is an actual dialogue between CNN political analyst Karoun Demirjian and show host Alisyn Camerota, regarding the difference between allegations against Roy Moore and Bill Clinton’s predatory past: KAROUN DEMIRJIAN: It’s certainly, it’s probably not something you’re going to hear a...

CREATIVELY GETTING RID OF MOORE: INSPIRED POLITICS OR CYNICAL END-AROUND

This is either inspired politics or a truly cynical end-around. The Republican Party, according to Alex Isenstadt and Eliana Johnson’s article at politico.com, is exploring the possibility of… …convincing appointed Senator Luther Strange (who lost the Republican primary to Roy Moore) to resign his seat… …thus, Republicans believe, giving Republican Governor Kay Ivey...

FRANKEN SENSE AND MOORE (CONT.)

As promised, here is the picture of Al Franken sexually molesting the woman referenced in my previous blog – her name is Leeann Tweeden.  And Franken is not denying that this happened either, he is just chalking it up as a stupid prank. Next, we have the video of Franken’s beyond-tasteless “jokes” about Carl Reiner and his friends raping Rob Reiner when he was a...
