HOW PERVASIVE IS CENSORSHIP OF CONSERVATIVE SPEECH?

If you ask a conservative whether people with his/her views get the same treatment as the left, you’ll probably be greeted with rolling eyes, a sarcastic laugh or both. That, it seems clear, is because conservatives believe the left has worked hard to keep conservative views from the marketplace of ideas…and has done a pretty good job of it. Are they correct?  That’s for you to...

MORE FAKE NEWS: CNN AND THE NEW YORK TIMES

Let’s take these one at a time. CNN:  Yesterday morning, Kellyanne Conway was interviewed on Chris Cuomo’s CNN Monday. The claim that James Comey’s October 28th letter about Hillary Clinton remaining under investigation came up – which Ms. Clinton has claimed was a main cause of her losing to Donald Trump. Conway shook her head no, and sarcastically commented: “I...

WHY DID COMEY RELEASE THE OCTOBER 28TH STATEMENT?

Why did James Comey, who did so much to help Hillary Clinton win the election, release that October 28th statement noting that there were new emails available, so the investigation of how then-Secretary Of State Clinton handled her emails would continue?

DAVID HOGG: THE 15 MINUTES OF FAME LESSON STARTS TO SINK IN

When was the last time you saw or heard david hogg’s name? Probably a several weeks ago, when he proclaimed a boycott of Laura Ingraham’s sponsors – which a number of them were scared into falling in line for. Ms. Ingraham then went on a one-week vacation (a pre-planned one, according to Fox News Channel…the timing of which looks more than a little suspicious, but...

HOW DIRTY WAS LORETTA LYNCH (CONT.)

This report, excerpted from Richard Pollock’s article at dailycaller.com, implicates both loretta lynch (no more capital letters for her name) and andrew mccabe – whose reputation is already, justifiably, in tatters.

A WISH FOR BARBARA BUSH

I hope I’m wrong.  But, with great regret, I note that it appears Barbara Bush is in the last stage of her life. Ms. Bush has always epitomized pure class – a commodity not every First Lady has demonstrated. When the end comes, may it be peacefully, with her loving family surrounding her.

JAMES COMEY’S FIRING: THE DEFINING DOZEN

Sharyl Attkisson, the former CBS news correspondent who,despite her award-winning career there was booted out – presumably because she was to the right of the network’s general tenor (not very hard to be), has written a column giving 12 reasons why President Trump was right to fire James Comey. It begins this way: A lot of new information has come out in the year...

THE MELANIA GAP

According to Alexandra Steigrad’s article in the New York Post, Michelle Obama was featured on over 30 magazine covers during her 8 years as First Lady. We are now well over a year into the Trump Presidency.  And Melania Trump, who was an internationally acclaimed fashion model for many years, and all over those magazines, has yet to be featured on even one cover since becoming First...

STARBUCKS: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY

By now, you no doubt have heard about the alleged racial incident in a Philadelphia Starbucks. To summarize:  two Black men entered the Starbucks and sat down.  They asked to use the bathroom and were told that Starbucks only allows customers who buy something to use their bathrooms.  The men declined to buy anything and  sat down again – thus making it clear they were not going to be...

THE TAX CUT EFFECT

The tax legislation passed last December, 100% by Republicans (not one Democrat vote in either the house or senate), is either a disaster for, or a huge boon to, the U.S. economy. Depends on who you ask. Investors Business Daily (IBD), via its latest editorial, is attempting to give us the answer.  And a lot more, both about the tax cuts and the unsustainable level of spending which continues to...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Nikki Haley, former Governor of South Carolina and, currently, our Ambassador to the United Nations. Speaking of our missile strikes (coordinated with the UK and France, ok’ed by NATO) on Syria chemical weapons assets, Ambassador Haley said this:  “When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line.” That, of course, is...

THE T-SHIRT AND THE WHEEL OF BLAME

I don’t know who came up with these two  graphics. But, after a year and a half of hearing Hillary Clinton tell us “I take full responsibility for losing”, then rattle off a litany of reasons it wasn’t her fault, I have to admit they made me laugh out loud – especially the one to the right. Maybe you will too:

You’d think it would chronicle a succession of people who fled the country because Donald Trump was elected President, wouldn’t you?
