STILL HERE…

Yes, I’m still here, mainstream media are still just as ridiculous, Trump is still just as much under Siege, and I will be blogging here in there for the week. But it will be a tad sporadic. Sorry about that. I will explain afterwards.

DRAINING THE SWAMP: IT BEGINS

Are President Trump and his people trying to get ahead of the “shadow government” problem (or, more exactly, scandal)? Well, let’s see: First we have this excerpt from CBS,: While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the State Department on Thursday.  Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of...

IS THIS A TRUMP LIE? EXAGGERATION? OR THE TRUTH? LET’S SEE….

From an article at Agence France Presse (AFP), via yahoo.com news: Ford not scrapping plans to build Mexico factories: company exec Ford is sticking with its plan to build two new factories in Mexico, despite an announcement last month that it had scrapped plans for a plant in the central state of San Luis Potosi. The US carmaker said a planned factory in the central state of Guanajuato will...

THE POST VS. THE TIMES

It isn’t often that a newspaper goes full-bore against a competing newspaper on its editorial page.  But today’s the day. Here is the first part of Today’s lead editorial in the New York Post, titled “Bogus Times scoops on Trump, Russia are recycled propaganda“: Take a deep breath and realize how precious little substance there is in all the breathless reporting...

TELLING BLACK STUDENTS THEY ARE INFERIOR

What would you call a group that tells Black people they should not be held to the same standards as non-Black people, and should be given things for free? You pick the word.  Start at “racist” and continue as you wish. Now, please read the following two paragraphs from Todd Richmond’s article for the Associated Press: Black students should be offered free tuition and housing...

A QUICK QUESTION FOR THE TRUMP-HATING MEDIA

A question – especially for the media which are so virulently attacking President Trump’s performance at today’s press conference: If you don’t like it, what do you have to threaten him with?  What are you going to do?  Write angry negative things about him?  Exaggerate his negatives or lie about them outright? That’s what a great many of you already are doing...

TRUST: TRUMP VS. MEDIA

During his wild and woolly press conference today, President Trump mentioned that the latest Rasmussen poll shows his approval rating at 55%. Once the press conference was over, several media people pointed out that other polls show Trump at much lower levels.   Gallup, for example, has him at, I believe, 39%. This, presumably, was supposed to show us how little trust the country has in Mr...

SPORADIC POSTING

FYI:  For the next week and a half my posting will be somewhat sporadic.  I hope to put material up every day, but probably not as many posts as usual. Everything is fine over here.  I’ll explain afterwards.

THREE TWEETS FROM A TWIT

Here are three tweets from poor Chuck Todd, who cannot abide Donald Trump not kissing his backside, and the backsides of other partisan hacks posing as “journalists”. ✔@chucktodd Who on the WH staff has the guts to tell him this may not be the presser that will calm the waters on Cap Hill with nervous GOPers? 2:07 PM – 16 Feb 2017 ✔@chucktodd This not a...

DEMOCRAT OBSTRUCTION: ANOTHER CASE STUDY IN WHY DEMOCRATS ARE LOSING

I guess they just don’t know any other way, so they keep doing the same crap over and over again hoping that, this time, the public will love it. From Jordain Carney’s article at thehill.com: Senate Democrats are planning an all-night talkathon Thursday over President Trump’s pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Asked whether Democrats are planning...

THE TRUMP PRESS CONFERENCE

Never in my life have I seen a press conference beginning like this one.  Not even close. Trump is talking to us like he would be talking to his pals in the nearest bar.  Zero artfulness.  Zero diplomacy.  Zero tolerance for the media and Democrat opposition. More on this when the press conference is through…and I am finished being stunned – and elated – by his dead-on...

CHRIS MATTHEWS AND HIS PARANOIA PANEL

When it comes to irrational paranoia, and just plain political barf that doesn’t make any sense, it’s hard to top Chris Matthews. During last night’s “Hardball” show on (where else?) MSNBC, he featured two Trump-haters – author Tim Weiner and retired Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Malcolm Nance – to essentially tell us that the contact President Trump...
