HOW MANY “DREAMERS”?

We have been told, incessantly, to the point that it is second-nature “knowledge” that there are about 800,000 so-called “Dreamers” in the United States. That, it turns out is a flat-out lie. The total is, in actuality, about 3,600,000 4 1/4 times that many. And who says so?  The liberal/left leaning, Trump-hating USA Today,  quoting the Migration Policy Institute...

TRUMP’S HEALTH, CNN’S HOPE

Kyle olsen’s article at americanmirror.com and see for yourself: Despite President Trump’s positive health exam results, CNN simply won’t accept the White House doctor’s assessment. Pundits who have not examined Trump parsed the results and drew conclusions likely intended to scare viewers. Host Alisyn Camerota and medical analyst Sanji Gupta declared Trump to be “borderline...

SPEAKING AGAIN ABOUT LIES OF OMISSION….

Here are the first two paragraphs of a New York Times article reassessing public sentiment toward the Trump tax legislation, and the chart it put up to show how things have changed from December to January: Americans are warming to the Republican tax law, and becoming more confident in the economy as a whole. They just aren’t sure that President Trump deserves much credit. The tax overhaul...

THE WASHINGTON POST’S FUSION GPS REVISIONIST HISTORY

There are two kinds of lies. -Lies of commission, when you say something that is untrue; -Lies of omission, when everything you say is true but you leave out parts that, due to their omission, lead to the wrong conclusions. Nowhere is this more evident than in David Ignatius’s disgraceful revisionist-history of the Fusion GPS opposition-research group and its coordination with the Hillary...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Spencer P. Morrison, writing for nationaleconomicseditorial.com. Mr. Morrison talks about what amounts to two Californias:  the one media like to tell us about when extolling its “progressive” (read that as hard left) social policies, and the one media would like us not to notice. Says Mr. Morrison: According to the US Census...

THINGS FOR THE BDS MOVEMENT TO B, D & S (CONT.)

I believe in freedom of thought and freedom of speech.  I therefore believe people have every right to speak out about their demands to boycott, divest and sanction when it comes to Israel. But I also believe it is worth knowing what emanates from Israel that would be boyotted, divested (i.e. unfunded) and subject to those sanctions. Here is another in the series of advances which emanate from...

THE CENSUS COUNT: LEGAL CITIZENS AND ILLEGAL ALIENS

Is there any difference between legal immigrants and illegals?

An excerpt from Siders’ article tells the story: LOS ANGELES — Fear is rising among Democrats over the prospect that President Donald Trump’s hard line on immigration might ultimately...

A TELLING Q&A ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S HEALTH

To the apparent chagrin of Trump haters in the media (please excuse my redundancy), the President has come through a physical exam and cognitive battery with flying colors. This prompted the following Q&A between CNN’s Trump-hater-of-them-all, White House correspondent Jim Acosta, and Physician to the President, Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, who was not brought in to do Trump a favor...

ABOUT THAT 25TH AMENDMENT IDEA…..

Still trying to catch up on all those articles claiming that President Trump can be removed via the 25th amendment (the part that provides a remedy if he is mentally incapable of continuing in office)? Well, here’s a bit of a problem for the folks who think that has any juice – excerpted from Amber Athey’s article at dailycaller.com: The Physician to the President Navy Rear...

WHEN IT WAS OK TO CITE HAITI AS A SHITHOLE

This table is pulled from Ann Jones’ article in the January 28, 2016 issue of The Nation – a decidedly left wing publication. See if you notice anything about Norway, Haiti and African states in it: Does this mean that The Nation is a racist publication?  And if the answer is no, does it mean that President Trump’s assessment, bad language and all, is not racist? Which is it...
