THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from social activist/CNN commentator Van Jones. Here is how Mr. Jones describes Michael Bloomberg’s performance in last night’s Democrat presidential debate: “Listen, this was a disaster for Bloomberg. Bloomberg went in as the Titanic, billion-dollar machine Titanic. Titanic, meet iceberg Elizabeth Warren. She took him to task in a way that I’ve...

THE BOLTON BUST

For months, impeachment-obsessed Democrats have pumped out a nonstop ratatat of “Bolton, Bolton, Bolton”.  John Bolton is the guy who has to testify, or the impeachment trial isn’t legitimate.  He’s the guy who has the goods on Trump.  He’s the guy who’ll take him down.  He’s the guy Trump is scared excrementless of. With that in mind, you might be...

DEBATE RETROSPECTIVE

Final thoughts on last night’s melee…er, debate. The first is that, at least for now, Michael Bloomberg’s bubble was burst big-time.  New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin said it well in the title of his debate commentary:  “Bloomberg was the turkey at a turkey shoot.”  And even that does not adequately describe the holy-hell pasting he took… …with...

THE DEMOCRAT DEBATE

Ten minutes in and the political blood is flowing big-time. This is all-out war – mostly on Bloomberg and Sanders… With Bloomberg, in particular, getting a royal butt-kicking. I don’t expect it to elevate even one inch.   If anything, the carnage will get worse. Much worse. ================ UPDATE:  So far, Pete Buttigieg sounds the most reasonable and sincere.   For some...

BIDEN, BLOOMBERG, OBAMA

According to Tal Axelrod’s article at thehill.com, Joe Biden is outraged by Michael Bloomberg’s recent ad, in which, while not saying it in so many words, it just about every visual shows Bloomberg with Barack Obama, and tacitly suggests Obama is endorsing him. Biden has a valid point. Yes, it is true that the ad does not at any point specifically say Barack Obama has endorsed the...

TWO NEW POLLS

Two new polls have come out today. One, the ABC News/Washington Post national poll, has Bernie Sanders leading the pack with 32%, and Joe Biden way behind at 17%.  Just one month ago Biden was leading Sanders in this poll by 28% to 24%. The other, a Public Policy Institute of California poll of just that one state, also has Bernie Sanders in the lead with 32% and Joe Biden at 14%.  Last month...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Steven Hayward, writing for powerlineblog.com. Mr. Hayward’s latest commentary hits on both tonight’s Democrat debate and the prospects for its two current superstars – Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg – in the general election. While I strongly urge you to use the above link and read every word (it’s not that long), these...

THE REAL BERNIE SANDERS

This one is for the folks who – like me – admire Bernie Sanders because, for the most part, he sticks to his core principles instead of blowing with the political winds. It is important to remember just what those principles are, and where they lead him. With the above in mind, please read the beginning of Peter Hasson’s article for dailycaller.com – which, of course, got...

WHY I GAVE UP ON THE NEW YORK TIMES (CONT.)

Last week the New York Times published an article by Charlie Savage, Adam Goldman and Julian E. Barnes about how the Trump administration is looking for evidence to show that the claim Russia attempted to interfere in the 2016 election on his behalf is false. (In fact, Trump’s claim is that Russia was working to facilitate the election of Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump.) Here are the...

ILLEGAL ALIENS: REAPING THE WHIRLWIND

 “For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” : Hosea 8:7  For years, the Obama administration – Joe Biden Vice President – made a point of telling us how avidly, how aggressively, it deported illegal aliens. But the Democrat Party, among its leftward lurches, now is the party of open borders and no deportations – even for illegals who perform criminal...

THE ROGER STONE, PRE-NEW TRIAL SENTENCING

. . . “Let the jury consider their verdict,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day. “No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first–verdict afterward.” “Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!” “Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple. “I won’t!”...

As I point out each year, I have never used this blog to solicit a penny for anything.  Not for the blog and not for any of the other worthy causes my family and I care...

BLOOMBERG’S BIG VICTORY…OR DISASTER?

Congratulations to Michael Bloomberg for, as of the latest poll results, qualifying to be part of tomorrow’s Democrat debate in Nevada. Or should I say condolences? The congratulations part is that Bloomberg has moved up so far in the polls. All it took was $417 million dollars of his own money (so far); an amount he would barely notice if it was missing from his petty cash drawer. The...

OF FARMERS, BLOOMBERG AND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

“I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.”:  Michael Bloomberg, 2016 For the purposes of keeping this a positive blog, I will avoid talking about what an amazingly arrogant, ignorant, disdainful, self-superior remark that was.  You...
