THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Scott Byer, a Google engineer.  And, though not new (the quote is from November 9, 2016, the day after Donald Trump won the presidency), I have no doubt it remains current. Here is what Mr. Byer lamented at that time: “This was an election of false equivalencies, and Google, sadly, had a hand in it. “How many times did you see the Election now card with...

A REALLY GOOD DISSERTATION ON DONALD TRUMP

National Review’s Senior Correspondent, Jim Geraghty, though politically conservative, is no fan of President Trump.  More exactly, Mr. Geraghty doesn’t hate Mr. Trump, but has major problems with what he sees as the serious personal flaws which diminish Trump and undermine his ability to be an effective President. In Geraghty’s latest column, he details his issues with the...

THE HILLARY COMPARISON

I am putting this as a separate blog because I didn’t want it to soil President Bush’s obituary. Here, a second time is the partial summary of what George H. W. Bush accomplished in his life…before he was President: -He was a military hero during World War II – one of the two youngest navy pilots in history. -After graduating Yale – in just three years – he...

GEORGE BUSH, R.I.P.

Former President George Herbert Walker Bush passed away last night. This amazing man had one of the most successful, productive, and eclectic lives I have ever come across: Among his accomplishments: -He was a military hero during World War II – one of the two youngest navy pilots in history. -After graduating Yale – in just three years – he became a successful business man...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from someone who promises to be an especially rich source of material for this series: soon-to-be congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As you are no doubt aware, Democrats regained the House of Representatives, by winning almost 40 new seats. As, I would hope, you are also aware, it is hardly unusual for the opposition party to win seats in mid-term elections...

ADVERSITY MAKES STRANGE BEDFELLOWS…

If the friend of my enemy is my enemy, then it certainly follows that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. That’s the only plausible explanation I can come up with for what you are about to read, as excerpted from Yassir Okbi’s article in the Jerusalem Post: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who met late Monday night...

BUT…BUT…THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS VOTER FRAUD (CONT.)

Well, well, well.  We finally have a possibility of voter fraud that Democrats, and the Washington Post (sorry for my redundancy) agree on. Excerpted from Amy Gardner and Kirk Ross’s article for the Washington Post, via msn.com: Mounting evidence of voter fraud in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District could indefinitely delay the certification of a winner, as state election...

THE COHEN CLAIM

Let me get this straight: Michael Cohen once told congress that, prior to becoming President, Donald Trump did not explore the possibility of building a Trump Tower in Moscow. Now, while trying to get a reduced sentence after being convicted of crimes that have nothing to do with Trump, he says that, prior to becoming President, Donald Trump did explore – but then discarded – the...

A QUESTION ABOUT MICHAEL COHEN’S PLEA DEAL

The first question:  what value does an admitted serial liar’s testimony have? There are other questions as well, such as what difference would it make if he was telling the truth – what exactly did Trump do wrong?  But, frankly they don’t matter. If the source of information is an admitted serial liar, it is valueless on its face.

This afternoon we have this, from Samuel Chamberlain and Brian Flood’s article at Fox News: CNN announced Thursday that it had fired commentator Marc Lamont Hill after he gave a speech at the United Nations in which he used language critics...

THE BLUNT FORCE PRESIDENCY

Why would President Trump put up a blunt force- quality tweet with this picture and verbiage?   Take a good look at who is behind those bars.  Please note that the people there include former Presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and President Trump’s own Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein. Is this presidential? It doesn’t even make the high school sophomore cut. Yes, the...

marc lamont hill: anti-semitic sack of manure

I have endured the fast-talking hard left ideologue, marc lamont hill on CNN over a good many years. Only now, however, have I learned that he is a confirmed, overt, Israel-hating, Jew hating sack of manure.
