Chuck Todd, slow learner



OK, Chuck Todd said that on January 25, 2015. Surely now, 17 months later, he has learned his lesson.

Wrong.

How math failed pundits

In April 2010, Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics saw something his elders did not see: the coming historic flip of the House six months out. While others were saying Nancy Pelosi would remain speaker, Trende said it could be a tsunami bigger than the 1994 Gingrich Revolution.

Never Trumper wants a unanimous victory by Crooked Clinton

In an interview on CNN on Sunday, Bret Stephens, deputy editorial page editor of the Wall Street Journal, showed that the Never Trump brigade is not about any principles or conservatism. Rather it is about maintaining their control of the Republican Party. They are Gollums addicted to power.

The quote that launched my book



They said he couldn't win. We fans said he would. We were right. Now to make them eat their words.

Dilbert creator: “Landslide.”

Most readers know I have developed an affinity for Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert. The insights of Adams into the Trumpvolution led me to name him Blogger of the Year for 2015.

Hillary's Army of Goliaths

In my upcoming book, I refer to the old media as an Army of Goliaths, a reference to Glenn Reynolds's "An Army of Davids" book, which is as relevant today as it was when it came out a decade ago. Goliath protected the Philistines. The modern Goliaths of the press corps protect the Philistines of Washington, which is why the press corps -- including the conservative commentariat -- are balls out in opposition to Trump.

Trump's map of the United States of America

In 2000, Bush's political advisor Karl Rove put Coddy Johnson in charge of five states, including West Virginia. Then Rove told him, “If you spend more than 30 seconds thinking about West Virginia, you'll be fired.”

Johnson listened to Rove, ignored West Virginia, and Al Gore was elected president despite losing Florida by 538 votes.

DC catches on about Crooked Clinton

I see where Chuck Todd has finally figured out why Hillary Clinton sent official emails from a private serve: to dodge FOIA requests.

How Trump will keep the Senate

Donald Trump is expanding the base as Republicans drew a record number of voters in the primaries and caucuses this year -- with five more states to go. The party meanwhile already is pouring staff and resources into 11 battleground states. Obama won 10 of them four years ago.

Trump made Crooked Clinton stick

It stuck. Donald Trump named her "Crooked Clinton" and now that is what they are calling her.

The RNC's new ad calls her that.

Cowardshima Obama

Barack Obama is an imbecile. He is credentialed, not educated. His appearance at Hiroshima today was an embarrassment to our our country, our allies, and the fools who gave him a Nobel. Let me explain.

McDonald's Trump

Twitter was a-twitter last night about Trump's victory meal -- a Big Mac and fries -- while Comrade Bernie Sanders dined on Coriander Crab Salad and Herb Crusted Lamb Loin. The difference is Trump pays for his lunch, while Big Donors pay Sanders way.

But Trump and Mickey D's go back a long way. His mom was a Scot and well, McDonald's is Scottish cuisine without the haggis.



You know who else ate at McDonald's? That's right.




Trump ready for Crazy Bernie

Little Marco, gone. Lyin Ted, gone. Crooked Clinton, going. Up next: Crazy Bernie.

When Trump saved the farm

I originally posted this at 2 PM on December 26, 2015. I repost it now because it was one of the things that inspired me to write my book about him and the pundits.

Comment of the day

From Mkelley:
May 26, 2016 at 12:47 PM
What is Trump thinking? Presidents McCain and Romney would never have treated Hillary this way.

Trump-Sanders debate begs the question: Why didn't McCain offer to debate Hillary?

Despite the opponent nearly clinching the Democratic nomination, the last remaining opponent hung on until the last primary in California. Republicans meanwhile had given the nod to an old man who was disliked by many in the party.

Am I talking about 2008 or 2016?

Will prosecuting Hillary be Obama's legacy?

President Obama became testy when asked by a reporter today about the FBI’s ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. The stench of scandal from the ruthless corruption of his first secretary of State befouls his legacy, even as he tries to enhance his presidential Curriculum vitae with an Asian trade pact.

Men have a legitimate complaint

NPR is not a usual source for a post, but Camila Domonoske had an interesting take on adults living with their parents.

Trump's ads mess with Hillary's mind

Trump the alpha male is delivering psy ops against Missus Clinton by running ads that show a new generation of women how Bill Clinton got away with abusing women.

A 2008 warning on Hillary coming true

The partisan sniping over Hillary Clinton's email server overlooks the real peril this nation is in. Our enemies and our adversaries know our state secrets thanks to this woman's incompetence. We were warned about her on November 21, 2008.

Science has doubts about global warming harming coral reefs

Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, director of the Coral Reef Research Institute at University of Sydney, has alarmed the people of Australia with a 48-page essay on the Great Barrier Reef, which is a national treasure. However scientists say that while 93 percent of the 911 reefs that make up the 1,400-mile formation are undergoing a bleaching, El Nino is to blame.

Opponents raised $701 million to lose to Trump, who raised just $17 million

Republican fat-cat donors and lobbyists need a T-shirt that reads:
I donated $701,293,230 and all I got was this lousy "Make America Great Again" hat.
Trump's opponents raised 40 times what he did.

Democrats riot in Albuquerque in a fascist attack on Trump's rally



Fascism showed up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Tuesday night as the Democratic Party unleashed its brownshirts upon a Trump rally in an attempt to intimidate Donald Trump and his supporters. I hold the Democratic Party responsible for this until the party's leader, President Obama, condemns the anti-American violence aimed at his opposition.

Trump or not, Democrats were doomed

Originally, I posted this at 3 PM on November 12, 2014. I re-post it with a new headline 18 months later because it shows that Obama fundamentally transformed America.

Just like Hoover did.

Oh, and there was this line from the original post:
Democrats are about to learn that "immigration reform" is as big a loser as gun control and global warming.
Guess Republicans did too. Anyway, the original post:

Trump endures another trite pseudo-intellectual cry of fascist

Historian Robert Kagan of Brookings Institute's latest column in the Washington Post offers a great insight into why the cloistered conservative commentariat keeps getting Trump wrong.

And he doesn't even like Trump

Even the political pundits who dislike Trump admit he is on to something. Consider the following quote:

Trump and marriage

Most pundits read the polls by age and sex and race groups, which may explain why most pundits missed the Trumping of the Republican Party. Me? Well...

Trump makes Bill his trump card



Meet the new ad. Same as the old ad. In January, Trump released an ad that pointed out the sexual abuse by Bill Clinton and others in Hillary's circle.

Even golf will be great again under President Trump

Your feel-good story of the day

Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey faced a tough decision. She was pregnant with more babies than had ever survived before -- seven. The doctors suggested selective reduction.

Never Trump turns on itself

Perhaps frustrated by the impotence of the Never Trump movement, Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, lashed out at fellow Never Trumpers Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson, after Beck and Erickson met with billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.

De-toxifying the NYT's clumsy hit on Trump


A week ago, the New York Times showed it is a complete failure even as a propaganda tool, with its hysterical, "Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private" piece. The story led with model Rowanne Brewer Lane, who disowned the piece. Now using the quotes in the piece itself, I give you: "How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private," because I would have to be an adults only site to give you Bill's.

Trump as Sinatra versus Hillary as Sinead O'Connor

The headline in the New York Post was promising: "Rat Pack vs. the hippie: Trump and Clinton are from opposite ends of same decade." Unfortunately, the column by John Podhoretz did not live up to the expectation promised by the copy desk.

For the first time, Trump now leads the average of national polls

Remember how Charles Krauthammer said if Trump won the nomination he could lose like Goldwater? National polls today confirm that once again, Krauthammer may have gotten Trump's chances wrong again.

A Job for Missus Clinton

Matt Bai, a political columnist and screenwriter, made an excellent observation at Yahoo about Hillary saying she is going to have Bill run the economy.

A Never Trumper wants to revive literacy tests for voters

The Washington Post just gave a Never Trumper -- David Harsanyi of the Federalist -- enough rope to hang himself. Fine, but did he have to make conservatives out to be the reincarnation of Bull Connor and the rest of the Dixiecrats who used poll taxes and literacy tests to keep black people from voting?

Good news about "Trump the Press"

My book editor had until the last day of this month to finish the copy editing my manuscript. On Friday, the copy editor surprised me by completing the job. This hastens its publication by two weeks so a June 14 debut on Kindle is possible. That is Trump's 70th birthday.

Never Trump does not own conservatism

He's a mere celebrity whose ignorance will destroy the Republican Party and if, God forbid, elected president, he will start World War III.

Donald Trump's Hair Secret Exposed

Trump/Capito?

Larry Sabato on possible VPs for Trump:

Clinton meltdown is two months early

That came quicker than I thought.

Megyn Kelly showed how to beat Missus Clinton

Donald Trump ended his fight with Megyn Kelly. They did a prime-time special on the Fox broadcast network during the May ratings sweep. Each side got what they wanted in a feud more Charlie McCarthy-W.C. Fields than the Hatfields and McCoys. The interview was more than the burying of hatchets, and pundits missed that.

Fox Poll: Trump 45, Clinton 42



Dang, he'll be elected president before my book on his nomination comes out!

Why Cruz is not on the Supreme Court list

Donald Trump's release of his list of 11 finalists for the open seat on the Supreme Court painted Hillary Clinton in the corner. She cannot release such a list. President Obama already appointed his suggestion for Senate consideration. However, not only did Trump box her in, he flummoxed the Never Trump crowd. His list is so conservative that not supporting him is now akin to not supporting the nomination of a conservative justice.

Trump's list of Supreme Court nominees boxes in Hillary

I am convinced this is Donald Trump's world. We just live in it. Take his latest move. While other candidates leak to the press possible vice presidential nominees, Trump gave them a more important list: His possible nominees for the Supreme Court.

No one has done that before.

Trump "energized" by latest reveal of Bill's bimbos

Shecky Clinton impersonates Trump

Shecky Greene turned 90 on April 8. God bless him. I loved him when I was a kid. Too bad he lived to see this.



 The plan is to make the election a referendum on Trump

Trump ad shows what media hid

Back in 2004, Karl Rove beat John Kerry with one quote -- a quote the media had ignored.

Muslims had inside help in Bataclan attack

Jesse Hughes, the frontman for Eagles of Death Metal, gave an insider's account of the Bataclan attack to Gavin McInnes of Taki's Magazine. Muslim terrorists killed 89 people including  the band's merchandise manager, Nick Alexander. It was carnage that was a multiple of the deaths at Altamont and at the Who concert in Cincinnati, yet after initial reporting, the American press ignored it.

Advice Hillary is too dumb to take

Greg Sargent of the Washington Post is one of the few pundits who understood Trump's appeal off the bat. Instead of looking at the media circus that swirled around Trump, Sargent looked at the message, and told his readers, we're gonna need a bigger vote. Now he has advice for Hillary.

The overlooked importance of being called Mister

How did a rookie candidate who had never sought public office defeat 14 governors and senators, as well a woman and a surgeon? One small reason is his title. He had none.

Comment of the day

Readers may wonder why I allow anonymous comments.

This is why:
I think Trump may be very good at evicting cockroaches -- this strikes fear into the hearts of the cockroaches at Politico...

More coal, better coffee

Another reason I say God bless the coal miners of West Virginia.

Today's proof that Hillary is an idiot

Hillary Clinton ran a pretty stupid campaign eight years ago before losing the nomination and presidency to Barack Obama. She will not make the same mistakes this time -- because she has a whole bunch of newer and bigger mistakes to make. Consider her "What's Donald Trump hiding?" video ad.

A convert to Trump

Steve Grammatico is the author of You Hear Me, Barack? PC-Free Conservative Satire. He blogs at youhearmebarack.blogspot.com.

With some irony, he has become a Trumpkin, converted by Never Trump Central, aka the National Review, but not for the reasons you may think.

Higher negative ratings show Trump will win

“Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.” -- Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513.

500 years later this remains true and this is why Trump shall win in November.

Is Never Trump a cult of no personality?

Until about 10 months ago, I never heard of Rick Wilson. He is a "Republican strategist" which is the cable news equivalent of "area man." He's got a bald noggin that looks good on him. But he is a rather venal, sneering commentator who evidently is the go-to man whenever a cable news anchor needs someone to say the latest nontroversy has killed Trump's candidacy, leveled Trump Tower, and sewn salt in the rubble.

Is Hillary taking a dive?


Experts who said Trump would not be the nominee say he won't be president

Clinton clobbering Trump 48-46

Oh now I can feel that 50-state landslide that is inevitable. What fools we were. Is it too late to bring George Pataki back to save us from the misery of Trump's defeat?

I mean the Gravis Poll shows Clinton up two points.

Conservatives as smug as a Prius owner

With his anti-Trump stance, Ben Howe at Red State is coming of as smug as a Prius owner. Don't think I and my fellow Trumpkins do not notice the liberal-like way the Never Trumpers put us down. Ben tweeted from atop his Belgian horse, 20 hands tall: "I will always be happy I chose the less popular and more honorable route."

Trump vindicates Buchanan

Patrick Buchanan was cast out of the Conservative Commentariat in the second term of Ronald Reagan. In 1992 the National Review -- still led by WFB -- did an Against Buchanan issue to stop Buchanan's quixotic and populist presidential campaign. The neocons won the battle for conservatism that year and Clinton won the presidency.

Did Cruz pirate campaign music?

Audiosocket is a music licensing company based in Seattle. Among its clients are Sarah Schachner, who wrote, "Lens," and Brad Couture, who wrote, “Fear of Complacency.”

The company sued Cruz and his campaign ad maker, Madison McQueen, claiming they pilfered these songs without permission, as if the songs were Trump delegates. The msuic was used as background music.

Bill spending Clinton Foundation on hookers and blow?



When we learned that Bill Clinton's son-in-law turned a $25 million hedge fund into pocket change, I teased on Twitter that I hoped he blew the money on something useful like hookers and blow. Turns out the 42nd president may be doing some of that with his Clinton Foundation "charity," which shook down Saudis and other foreigners to fund Hillary's presidential campaign in exile until she officially entered the race and collected bribes -- uh, donations -- last year.

"Clinton launches blitzkrieg on Trump"

Serious-minded people have asked me why I support Trump. No one generates as much news, gives more interviews or pisses off as many pundits. And now, Hillary Clinton plans to give him her paid media by dusting off her husband's 1992 playbook and using it 24 years later.

Cruz continues to be a jerk

After Trump handed Cruz his as for the seventh straight time in Indiana, the senator gracefully conceded the race.

Now, after losing two more primaries, Cruz is back welshing on the deal., He vowed this weekend to try to steal more delegates that Donald Trump won fair and square.

Mitt, I want by 2012 vote back

Tweet of the day

Your silly endorsements mean nothing

Never Trump has become Drama Queen central. The self-righteous right continues to preen to my amusement because I am looking at my watch and waiting for November 8. No teeth are gnashed because Paul Ryan -- veep loser last time -- is petulant about backing the nominee. Ho-hum.

“The rightwardmost viable candidate.”

In Jun 1964 as the Republican national convention neared, William F. Buckley Jr. told his editorial board, “National Review will support the rightwardmost viable candidate.”

Considering he was the editor, that was that.

Botanists against carbon dioxide

Officials at Britain's Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in London decided to panic the populace by saying 21% of the world's plant species are "under threat." Never mind that we are discovering new species daily, panic sells better than actual science.

77% in West Virginia

West Virginia Republicans nominated a billionaire for president, and West Virginia Democrats nominated a billionaire for governor, Jim Justice. This is Trump Country. He took every county and ran up the score -- beating Cruz 77% to 9%.

What's wrong with this picture?

Steve Hayes blew up on TV

Steve Hayes of the Weekly Standard never gave Trump a chance. Now that Trump has won, Hayes has gotten a little hot under the collar of late, and tonight on Fox News All-Stars, Hayes blew up.

"Trump Is A Metal Band"

Bob Lefsetz, 63, is a music critic who debated Gene Simmons at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto in 2009. Politics is about the last thing he will write on, so of course, he had to weigh in on Donald Trump, who is both the immovable object and the irresistible force.

Did Facebook pull an AOL?

I remember AOL moderators 20 years ago. They often worked against conservatives in political chatrooms. Then came Twitter, which has banned Robert Stacy McCain for quoting feminists. Seriously. Now comes the allegation that Facebook is censoring conservatives.

Never forget, the problem is Hillary



This headline in the New York Post on October 2, 2015, told why should re-double our efforts to stop her election:

Secret Service agents: Hillary is a nightmare to work with


Trump up in Ohio and dead even in Florida and Pennsylvania

The Washington Establishment meme is Trump loses big in November. Larry Sabato who correctly predicted Trump had no chance of winning the nomination, now predicts a landslide for Hillary Clinton.

It's too early for polls, but as the good people of West Virginia vote for Trump and against Clinton in the primaries today, the Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll shows Trump up by 4 in Ohio and down by 1 in both Florida and Pennsylvania.

Cruz: Put Congress in charge of bathrooms

The battle over bathrooms is serious. DNA should decide. That said, like marriage, abortion and a host of other issues, this is a matter for the states to decide. Congress already has enough on its plate.

Azealia Banks is needed more than John Sununu



I woke up this morning looking up Azealia Banks on Google. She is a 24-year-old rapper from Harlem who endorsed Trump.

Austria for Austrians wins

GOOD.

Does Trump need Never Trump?

I am being polite in the headline, which should read, "Trump does not need Never Trump." This follows up my Saturday post, "Never Trump will never hurt Trump." Trigger warning: There is math in that post.

Dude, Mike Huckabee just called you hapless

The actual quote:
“I will be all in to help him defeat Hillary Clinton and I call upon all fellow Republicans to unite in defeating Hillary and abandoning and repudiating the hapless ‘Never Trump‘ nonsense.”
He also said:
“The dirty little secret is that the Never Trump movement was more about providing high dollar work for the political consultants than stopping the disaster of an Obama third term which is the result of electing Hillary Clinton.”
Suddenly a Trump/Huckabee ticket does not seem so bad.

Jim Rose explains all

Jim Rose has 405 followers on Twitter. I am among them. Here is why:

Hillary For America is Trump's Super PAC

Hillary will burn $20 million in June, and make the race tighter. Negative ads are supposed to turn off the opponent's supporters. This ad turns them on.

She is the Jeb Bush of the Democratic Party.

Trump unleashes $2 billion media campaign against Hillary

The Baghdad Bobs at Red State wet themselves and posted this headline: "The Democrats’ scheduled $20 million blitz against Donald Trump. In JUNE."

Big deal. Trump just unleashed a $2 billion campaign against Hillary. It won't cost him a dime.

Friday, May 06, 2016

Did Against Trump backfire?

I noticed a new ad for National Review offering an 82% discount on subscriptions. That seemed rather steep.

Krauthammer misses another Revolution

Charles Krauthammer's reign on Fox News as the Commissar of the Conservative Commentariat belie where he was at the Reagan Revolution -- with the Tories. He was Walter Mondale's speech-writer. But here we are 30 years later and while a leopard's spots may not change (I am no biologist) a person's political positions mature. Today's Krauthammer column though exhibits touches of the cluelessness he suffered during the Reagan presidency.

Good fences make good neighbors

Vincente Fox, former president of Mexico, apologized to Donald Trump for the temper tantrum Fox threw in February.

Trump ≠ Hillary

This election will be about which of two directions this nation will take. As with the Republican race, these ideas are more important than the personalities. This is why Trump could bungle and bumble his way through the process and win as a rookie politician. He was saying one thing, 16 others were saying the opposite. He won.

I do not follow many people on Twitter, but last night Roman Stauffer suggested I follow a coal miner, Christopher Cline of Williamson, who had just joined Twitter.

"I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message"

Hillary's people run their first attack ad.

With malice toward none

Instead of pouring the Gatorade down Donald Trump's back last night, his supporters were subdued and a little stunned by Ted Cruz's exit. Indiana was his last stand and he went out with a fiery speech and a promise to come back.

Don Blankenship to Hillary: Talk to the hand

He was railroaded.

Now for Hillary

Having destroyed the Republican Party, Donald Trump now sets his sights on destroying the Democratic Party. The hard part for him is over. Of the 16 Republicans he defeated, Jeb was the only one with a shot. He had the money, the best record, and the organization. Hillary can be defeated. Here's why.

Cruz quits, just as I said he would early this morning

Byron York noted that Cruz would stay in Indiana on primary night unlike past primaries when he moved onto the next.

I wish him the best.

Now to finish my post-nomination book.

Indiana Results

Sanders 45, Clinton 37 in West Virginia

West Virginia Democrats hate the Clintons. Just hate them. She will not do as well as Barack Obama did in the West Virginia Democratic Primary in 2012, when he bested Keith Russell Judd 59% to 41%.

What makes Cruz a conservative?

Watching Ted Cruz attempt to steal an election he could not win honestly -- far more Republicans voted "against" him than they did Trump -- I wonder what makes him a conservative?

Election songs I would like to hear

Hillary singing the Beatles' "The Schlonged And Winding Road."

I will take dumb diplomacy over smart any day

Edward Luce of the Financial Times mocked Donald Trump's foreign policy. After seven years of Barack Obama, Luce still thinks smart diplomacy is a good idea.

Southern West Virginia hates the Clintons

From its birth in 1863 until 2000, Southern West Virginia was a Democratic Party stronghold. Even as late as 2014, Democrats could count on the cemeteries in Southern West Virginia to turn out the votes. No more.

West Virginia was Trump territory -- in 2011

Blame West Virginia for Donald Trump.

We were the first state to go for Trump.

Ted Cruz is a sneaky varmint and poor sport who is stealing delegates from Donald Trump.

Bush on nation building

Was Donald Trump's foreign policy speech this week that far removed from George Walker Bush?

Republican voting up

From the Wall Street Journal:
According to the Public Opinion Strategies tally, some 25.1 million Republicans have cast ballots this year, compared with 15.3 million in 2012. Some 3.5 million more Republicans than Democrats have voted.
Democratic primaries have drawn 21.6 million voters, compared with 26.1 million in 2008.
The analysis excludes ballots in several states that held caucuses or party conventions instead of primaries, as well as all non-state primaries.
But hey, Hillary is going to stomp Trump worse than LBJ beat Goldwater. Right?

Nanny Bloomberg delivers a nanny commencement speech

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg -- media mogul and former mayor of New York City -- gave commencement at the University of Michigan. It was about what you would expect.
