MICHELLE GOLDBERG’S “BIG LIE” LIE

Michelle Goldberg is about as far left as so-called “mainstream journalists” get.  Therefore she, of course, has a welcome mat out for her on the New York Times’ op-ed page. Here, from Ms. Goldberg’s latest screed, is a fascinating paragraph, describing, as she defines them, one of the two big lies about President Trump and the 2016 election (no, these people cannot get...

A RIDICULOUS TRUMP POSTER AND A SERIOUS POLICY COMMITMENT

It isn’t often that you can combine one of the (ongoing series of) ridiculous things President Trump does, with something serious that he should be commended for. But today’s the day. Earlier this week, Trump actually tweeted out this photoshopped picture of his head superimposed over a still of Sylvester Stallone’s young body, from when he was shooting the iconic movie...

BUTTIGIEG AND BLACK VOTERS: A DIPLOMATIC ASSESSMENT

Do you want to see an example of what, for lack of a better term, I will call journalistic diplomacy? Read the beginning of Dawn Baumgartner Vaughan’s article for the Charlotte (NC) News-Observer, discussing Democrat presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s attempts to generate Black support: Black voters are a major Democratic voting bloc, and a few months before the presidential...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Erielle Davidson, writing for thefederalist.com. In her latest commentary, Ms. Davidson, after discussing an ugly interview conducted by BBC’s Andrew Neil with jeremy corbyn, the thinly-disguised anti-Semite who heads Britain’s Labour Party, had this to say about how corbyn’s views comport with those of the United States left: As I’ve...

A ONE-SIDE-ONLY IMPEACHMENT ARTICLE

I just read a commentary written by politico.com’s Heather Caygle, Sarah Ferris and Kyle Cheney, titled, “Dems see one last chance to boost public support for impeachment”. Assuming the intention was to provide readers with neutral information, I have to say this article troubled me. Let me tell you why. First off, there are the references to impeachment polling.  That...

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: DEMOCRAT FUNDRAISING SUPERSTAR

Guess which Democrat House member was the most successful fundraiser of them all in the third quarter? Based on the title of this blog, I have a feeling you already know the answer.  But, just in case, we have this – excerpted from Sam Dorman’s article at foxnews.com: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., pulled in what is being described as an unprecedented fundraising haul in...

HUNTER BIDEN AND CHINA

Most people are aware that there is controversy over Hunter Biden’s gig as a Board of Directors member of Burisma, the scandal-ridden Ukraine energy company. But, given the diligent burial of information about his dealings in China, I doubt very many people are aware that this, if anything, is more odoriferous/more of a money-maker for Biden than Burisma ever was or could be. Excerpted from...

DID RUDY GIULIANI PEDDLE INFLUENCE IN UKRAINE

For better or worse (worse in my opinion, and, I’m betting, yours as well), influence-peddling is business-as-usual in Washington. But if influence-peddling, whether ultimately successful or not, involves the President’s personal lawyer and the Ukraine, that would take it to a very different level. With that in mind, please read the following excerpts from Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom...

THE CURIOUS CASE OF BRENDA LAWRENCE

Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) represents about as safe a Democrat district as there is in Michigan.  She has little to no chance of being unseated next year. So why did she come out against impeaching President Trump several days ago, saying: “You can censure, you don’t have to remove the president.  Sitting here, knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of kicking him...

IS ELIZABETH WARREN’S CANDIDACY ON THE ROPES?

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is a study in how many lies a presidential candidate can tell, and how many ludicrous “free for all” proposals the candidate can pump out to the electorate, and still be a viable candidate. If the latest polling is any indication, we may be finding out our answer.  And it won’t be a very good one for Ms. Warren. Excerpted from Caitlin...

HOW TRUMP CAN “LOCK IN” CREDIT FOR THE ECONOMY

Later today or tomorrow I’ll give you my thoughts on how President Trump can use both the economic news and its burial by both Democrats and media to his advantage:  Me, yesterday. OK, here it is. First, a quick reminder about the state of the economy.  During Donald Trump’s presidency: -The Dow Jones, S&P and NASDAQ averages have risen to all-time highs; -Unemployment has dropped...

MEDIA BIAS? NAAAHHH

Yesterday the Dow industrial average hit a new all-time high. The S&P and NASDAQ averages are also at all time highs, while unemployment continues to sit at half century lows in general and all-time lows for Blacks and Latinos. The amount of time spent on this exceptionally good economic news by CBS, NBC and ABC last night? According to Bill D’Agostino’s article at...
