Poll: Trump 46%, Media 37%

Fake News is not destroying The Donald. Instead, like Frankenstein's monster, Fake News is destroying the credibility of the media that distributes this garbage.

Oh, and I have plenty of examples of Fake News, folks.

Advice for Trump from the National Review

Former Bush 41 and Reagan official Elliott Abrams has figured out what is wrong with President Trump's administration. Too many competent generals. Not enough failed politicians.

Never mind that the politicians are the ones letting President Trump down. Tom Price had no Obamacare repeal in place, and Jeff Sessions cleared the way for a special prosecutor.

Trump needs more people who have run for sheriff.

Using Weinstein to bash Trump

There are good journalists out there. I concentrate on the bad ones because I like to.

Paul Waldman of the Washington Post entered my radar when he wrote about Harvey Weinstein -- and blamed President Trump. It was a bizarre column that mentioned Trump's name 16 times, Weinstein's 6.

But before I examine that column, let us look at what Waldman wrote about Mike Pence in March.

NFL cash cow dries up

Wattles shook in self-righteous indignation on September 24 as the NFL prepared to get on its knees in a bizarre act of defiance against our duly elected president.

Broadcasters applauded this politicization of another form of entertainment.

Tom Otway is my new best friend

Never met him, but he wrote a great Amazon review of "Trump the Press," the 90th so far.
That was fun
It's a feel-good, Trump fan book. I did not realize the depth/breadth of Repub opposition. The total amount of opposition he received was astounding. Learned a bunch.
Thank you.

Now, which reader will be my next new best friend?

Time to subpoena Obama on his ties to Russia

Barack Obama, the pay-to-play president, cut a deal with Russia shortly after taking office.

The FBI investigated, but mysteriously dropped the case according to the Hill.

Proof Democrats became radical

The Party of Jackson is now the Party of Bill Ayers. A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that in response to the Newt Gingrich Revolution in 1994 -- which regained the House for Republicans after 40 years in the desert -- Democrats turned radically leftward.

America leaves the media behind

Kurt Schlichter seldom disappoints. Lawyer, retired infantry colonel, novelist, and columnist, he grasped the Trump voter before anyone else. His column this week was durn good.

Politico horrified as Trump's judges win approval

The Mitch McConnell Court is starting to get through the Senate. Conservative experts select them, President Trump appoints them, and the Senate approves them.

That last move is why I call this the Mitch McConnell Court.

You say you'll change the Constitution

"President Trump is throwing a bomb into the insurance marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act, choosing to end critical payments to health insurers that help millions of lower-income Americans afford coverage. The decision coincides with an executive order on Thursday to allow alternative health plans that skirt the law’s requirements," the Washington Post reported last week.

Fake News.
