JEB BUSH\’S CANDIDACY

Yes, the name is an albatross around his neck.  Jeb Bush will relentlessly be tied to his brother George…whom, despite rising numbers over the past year or two, is still thought of negatively by most of the country. That said, however, Mr. Bush: -has been a popular two-term governor of Florida, a major swing state, -he is conservative on most issues but moderate, even liberal, on...

THE MARTOSKO FIASCO

As you may be aware, there is a journalistic technique called “pool reporting”.  Simply stated, if, due to space or timing considerations, a newsworthy event cannot be covered by the full complement of reporters, one or two are designated to attend and provide the coverage which is then used by the other news organizations. Yesterday, the designated reporter for...

THE “BLACK LIVES MATTER” BILLBOARD

Now here\’s a billboard guaranteed to infuriate at least some of the “Black Lives Matter\’ crowd – you know, the ones who restrict their concern about Black lives to the ones that can be mined for racial purposes. Is this a reasonable sentiment?  That, of course, is arguable. Is it a racist\’s “gotcha” against Black people?  That, by contrast...

OUR STEALTH MANUFACTURING SLUMP

YOUR JOB IS TO BE AN IDIOT

Introducing a new series for this blog…one that is inspired (if that\’s the right word) by Hillary Clinton and her people. What does it mean?

TAMIR RICE: SHOULD THERE BE A TRIAL?

Do you remember the name Tamir Rice? He was the 12 year old who was shot and killed by Cleveland police officer Timothy Loehmann, while he and his partner responded to a dispatch call that someone was in a public park, pointing a gun at people. The person who called the police said the gun “was probably fake”.   But the dispatcher did not relay that speculation to...

THE GENITALIA STRATEGY: HILLARYS LAST REFUGE

On August 28th, 1963, Martin Luther King famously thrilled most of a nation by telling us “I have a dream”. Not to be outdone by small potatoes like Dr. King,  on Saturday, June 13th, 2015, Hillary Clinton attempted to thrill most of a nation by telling us “I have a vagina”. Why would she do that? Because now that two months have passed since Ms. Clinton...

IN CASE YOU THOUGHT THE CLINTON FOUNDATION SCANDAL WAS DYING DOWN…

…we have this, excerpted from Peter Schweizer\’s devastating article in the New York Post (and please, please, use this link to read the rest, because there is so much more): Hillary hasn\’t explained why her State Department approved the transfer of 20% of US uranium to the Russian government – even as her family foundation hauled in $145 million from investors in...

THE NEW YORK POST\’S EDITORIAL ON BARACK OBAMA\’S IRAN “DEAL”

With apologies to the New York Post, I am not going to excerpt today\’s editorial on the “deal” President Obama, and our equally hapless Secretary of State, John Kerry, are in the final stages of cooking up with the terrorist liars in Iran. Here it is.  Every word.  The bold print is mine: Is there anything Obama\’s not giving away in his Iran nuclear deal? By...

DEVAL PATRICK\’S SLUSH FUND AND MAINSTREAM MEDIA\’S NEWS BLACKOUT

Did you know that former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick “secretly diverted nearly $27 million in public money to off-budget accounts that paid for a $1.35 million trade junket tab, bloated advertising contracts, and a deal with a federally subsidized tourism venture backed by U.S. Sen.

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from someone named steve yuhas, who lives in California\’s upscale Rancho Santa Fe…and who apparently resents the drought-related water restrictions imposed by Governor Jerry Brown.

WHY DOES FREDRICKA WHITFIELD STILL HAVE A JOB?

fredricka whitfield is a “journalist”, currently employed by CNN. Why? Because of what she said, yesterday, about the deranged lunatic who planted explosives, shot up a Dallas police station (fortunately no one was hurt – though not for lack of trying), led police, dependingon which report you hear, on a 14 – 18 mile chase (again, great luck that no one was hurt...

HILLARY\’S “RESET”: HOW DID THINGS GO?

Remember that ludicrous “reset” Hillary Clinton wanted with Russia?  The one that, to say the very least, didn\’t work out? Well, now, after two months of – in the words of George Gershwin – Plenty O\’ Nuthin\’, she\’s trying it for presidential campaign.  She has “re-launched” today, with a rally at New...
