AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT/AN INCONSEQUENTIAL CANDIDATE?

Is what I just heard on the radio true? Did Joe Biden make his highly publicized “I believe that this president is literally an existential threat to America,” speech, in Davenport, Iowa, to a crowd of…85 people? That’s a huge crowd, if you happen to manage a McDonald’s. But certainly not if you happen to be a presidential candidate – the leading candidate at...

“THE CENTRAL PARK 5”: JUST HOW “INNOCENT” WERE THEY?

As you may be aware, the “Central Park 5” were five young Black boys who were accused of raping a White female jogger in New York’s Central Park, 30 years ago (the night of April 19th, 1989 to be exact).  Years later, they were cleared of the rape itself, when DNA evidence showed it was performed by another male. To commemorate this anniversary, Netflix is running a series...

NBC REPORTS ON JOHN DEAN’S TESTIMONY

I watched NBC’s report of John Dean testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on this morning’s Today Show. No mention that Dean is a convicted felon. No mention that he is a disbarred lawyer.  No mention that he has done his “worse than watergate” and “(Republican President) must be impeached” routine in the past. And  – other than a reference to...

BUYING IMPEACHMENT

Do you know who Tom Steyer is? If you’re political-junkie enough to read this blog, I’d be surprised if you didn’t. Tom Steyer is a billionaire who made his money in finance (Farallon Capital, Hellman & Friedman). That may not come across as the résumé of a far left political activist who is currently trying to buy the impeachment of Donald Trump.  But it is. You probably...

Go back to the Nixon era, Johnny Dean, Johnny Dean

Do  You know who House Judiciary Committee chair Jerrold Nadler has called to testify today? Better brace yourself, because this is too idiotic not to react to. Nadler has called John Dean. That’s right, John Dean; the former Nixon operative.  The disgraced, disbarred convicted felon from 45 years ago. And what possible reason would there be for Dean to be testifying to the House...

THE GEORGE SOROS-PURCHASED U.S. JUSTICE SYSTEM

Does that blog title look a little – maybe a lot – exaggerated? Well it isn’t.  And if you expect mainstream media to tell you about why, you have a wildly over-optimistic view of what mainstream media have degenerated into. From Joe Schoffstall’s latest article for Washington Free Beacon (freebeacon.com): Liberal billionaire George Soros has continued his bid...

NANCY PELOSI’S PROBLEM WITH IMPEACHMENT

Michael Goodwin, the always-worth-reading columnist for the New York Post, has a commentary today on why Nancy Pelosi – albeit in an amazingly stupid way (e.g. stating that she wants him imprisoned instead) – is fighting her party’s call to impeach President Trump. Here is a key passage: The majority of voters understand that Mueller had the time, investigators, and incentive to...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Dan Dimicco, former Chairman/CEO of the Nucor Steel Company and an adviser to President Trump…on whose behalf he has written a commentary which favors the stiff tariffs Mr. Trump has hit China with. Here are a few key paragraphs: There’s an important point to remember in the current U.S.-China trade conflict: Beijing started it. For the past 20...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote – and it is truly an astonishing one -comes to us from Anna Cabrera.  It was just voiced during her show on CNN, at the end of a segment in which she interviewed New York Mayor and presidential aspirant Bill De Blasio. So help me, Cabrera said these exact words: “Mayor Bill De Blasio. I really appreciate your coming on and allowing us to help get your message...

HONG KONG: THE NEXT TIANANMEN SQUARE?

Remember what happened, 30 years ago this week, in Beijing, China’s Tiananmen Square? Remember the students protesting their  lack of freedom?  Challenging the Chinese government? Remember the Chinese government smashing those protests, with hundreds – maybe thousands – dead and who knows how many more jailed, tortured, etc.? Well, it is terribly sad to say, that horror show...

A khasuren die kalleh is tsu shayn

Just a wild guess:  most readers will not know what the title of this blog means. So let me explain. The title is, in fact, a Yiddish sarcasm.  Literally, it means “A fault (that) the bride is too pretty”  It is meant to convey that there are people who, no matter how good//positive something might be, will manage to find something wrong with it… …which leads us to...

THE OBERLIN RULING

In most respects Oberlin College, in Oberlin, Ohio, is like a great many other colleges and universities around the country.  It is an institute of higher education that has been taken over by the left and now runs as a four year indoctrination center. But something happened at Oberlin three years ago culminating in a landmark legal decision which, it seems to me, every college and university in...

NO GLACIER ERASURE

This is a very easy blog to write, since it consists entirely of the summary from Michael Bastasch’s article at dailycaller.com: Glacier National Park quietly removed a visitor center sign saying its iconic glaciers will disappear by 2020 due to climate change. Several winters of heavy snowfall threw off climate model projections the glaciers would all disappear by 2020, according to...

STEVEN HAYWARD’S WEEK IN PICTURES

Since this has become a blog feature on most weeks, I thought I’d use the title to give its compiler, powelineblog.com’s Steven Hayward credit… …and to remind you that this is only a small sampling; you’d be more than a little remiss if you didn’t click here to see them all. Thank you, Steven.  I hope this sends you plenty of internet traffic.  And a special...
