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.

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!”...

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...

A QUICK QUESTION ON MEDIA AND JUSTICE

How much network coverage – I’m talking about neutral coverage – have you seen about the disparity between “justice” for people who worked for/supported Trump (think Flynn, Manafort, Stone) and people who worked for/supported Clinton (think Comey, McCabe, Strzok)? I mean, it’s not like mainstream media have a rooting interest or anything like that…..

REMEMBER GREGORY TIMM?

gregory timm.  Does the name mean anything to you? If not, let me refresh your memory.  gregory timm was the avowed-Trump-hater who drove his van into a tent where Republicans were setting up a voter registration venue. From Myah Ward’s article at politico.com: Timm, 27, reportedly accelerated his vehicle toward the canopy tent and tables, while victims moved to avoid being struck...

CABLE NEWS’ SUPERSTAR…UNTIL…

With a major tip of my imaginary hat to Washington free Beacon, here is its video compilation (a partial one; there is a lot more) of cable news and “entertainment” show personalities slobbering out their adoration of michael avenatti –  who currently sits in a New York jail cell, convicted of 3 felony counts and waiting to see how much of a potential 42 year jail sentence he...

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG’S DISDAIN FOR _________ (THIS TIME IT’S FARMERS)

In the past several weeks we’ve found out that Michael Bloomberg has some choice words about young minority males, aged 16 – 25 (95% of the crime?  Really, Mike?), and women, via the compendium of sexist remarks/behaviors described by former Bloomberg staff people. And now, we have farmers. From Reed Richardson’s article at mediaite.com: Democratic president candidate Michael...
