THE STRZOK FIRING

peter strzok, the lying, conniving conspirator whose FBI “job” eventually became overthrowing our elected government, was finally – FINALLY – fired today.

And I hope his...

ARE MEDIA PUTTING THEMSELVES IN DANGER?

As high-profile media personalities continue to go public with dire warnings that President Trump’s “fake news” and “enemy of the people” attacks put their lives in danger,  do they ever consider that their own words might entice a publicity-seeking lunatic to take a shot at them?

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Bill De Blasio, Mayor of New York City.

omarosa manigault newman was, briefly, the White House Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison – just one in a series of poorly thought-out, poorly made appointments by President Trump at the beginning of his campaign, then afministration (he seems to be listening more to the people around him on appointments these days – at least we can hope so). In any case...

WHY IT’S CALLED “FAKE NEWS” (CONT.): JEREMY MONTANEZ

This is an easy blog to write…because, for the most part, I don’t have to write it. Here are excerpts from P.J.
