Making West Virginia Great Again

Coal ain't dead.

Pray for Pelosi

Every Republican in America should pray for the continued good health of House Minority Leader Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi (D-Politburo) so that her reign as minority leader lasts well into the 21st century.

Ari Fleischer on Trumping the press

This is not a book review, although I may send Ari Fleischer a copy. This is my take on a column from President Bush 43's first (and best) spokesman.

President Trump will end payoffs to Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood supports and helps elect Democrats. They return the favor by giving the world's largest abortion corporation millions of dollars thanks to a law a Democratic Congress passed in 1970.

This is an outrageous and after 46 years President Trump and his Republican Congress will end this corrupt practice.

President Trump just saved 1,000 jobs at Carrier

Congratulations, Republicans of Indiana. You ignored your governor's support of Cruz, looked past the media caricatures, and trusted Donald Trump to save those jobs at Carrier.

President Trump's victory tour begins on Thursday

President Trump will kick off a victory tour to thank his supporters for his 30-state win (most in 20 years) with a rally in Cincinnati at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Clinton Foundation investigation

From the New York Post: "Trump administration will pressure foreign states to probe Clinton Foundation."

Recount was a great gift to President Trump

Team Clinton had a brilliant plan with a focus group-tested slogan: Audit the Vote. Sure, a recount could not overturn the election, but a recount could undermine support for The Donald, and discount the Republican mandate.

President Trump will end having taxpayers pay for union work

The Associated Press's Matthew Barakat wrote that federal workers fear Trump's "drain the swamp" will hurt the average government worker, most of whom do not live in Washington.

What do you think of President Trump's latest Cabinet picks?

From the Daily Mail:
Trump names anti-Obamacare congressman Tom Price his health secretary amid rumors he will make General James Mattis defense secretary and Ben Carson HUD secretary today.
Sad that I have to rely on a London tabloid over the Wall Street Journal for news about the coming presidency.

Help President Trump or face oblivion

"We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately."
-- Ben Franklin just before signing the Declaration of Independence.
Republicans rightly rejoice at the election of President Trump, which is the cherry atop their electoral sundae which finds them in their best position since 1928. But there are signs that should warn Republicans that they could well repeat the experience of Hoover.

President Trump's election shows the value of newspaper endorsements

The newspapers of America have spoken: 243 endorsed Hillary, 20 endorsed Trump, 9 endorsed Gary Johnson, and 1 endorsed Evan McMullin.

Stein raised more for the recount than her election

The "watchdog" media misses more stories than Sergeant Schultz missed escapes. The latest is Jill Stein of the Green Party raising more money for the recount than she did for her campaign.

Thoughts on Joe Manchin

A column by Salena Zito on her meeting with Democratic Senator Joe Manchin at Taylor Books in Charleston, West Virginia, created a speculation in the conservative bloggery about EpiPens Joe flipping parties.

Nope.

But it does raise questions about his chances in 2018.

"Team of Gazillionaires" sounds awesome

Having gotten the Republican nomination process totally wrong -- Politico doubled down on the general election. Now Politico double down again to get President Trump's presidency all wrong, to hit the trifecta of stupid.

President Trump does not care what you think, New York Times

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton accepted millions of dollars in bribes from foreign dictators (Saudi Arabia, for example) and the like disguised as donations to the Clinton Foundation, a tax-exempt corporation disguised as a charity.

The New York Times could not care less about this illegally activity.

Media missed President Trump stock rally

The Dow Jones, the NASDAQ, the S and P 500, and the Russell 2000 all reached all-time highs on Friday -- three weeks after the news media declared the election of President Trump would shove the economy of the cliff.

Americans cheer while the media mourns Castro's death

They still don't get it. A real monster -- a real fascist - a real Hitler -- died last night and the American media praises him.

Why didn't Obama do what a liberal DEMANDS President Trump do?

Foon Rhee of the Sacramento Bee on Friday DEMANDED that President Trump "narrow racial gaps in schools."

Barack has the SADZ

Fidel Castro dead at 90.

At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.
For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements. During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity. This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.
Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future. As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America.

President Trump made Black Friday great again

Retailers did record business on Thursday and Friday -- as sales were up a whopping 13 percent over last year, the Daily Mail reported.

Reading the Constitution wrong

The Washington Establishment wants President Trump to take an oath of poverty. From the Wall Street Journal down to the lowly CNN, Fake News organizations are demanding President Trump magically divest himself overnight of the $10 billion empire he spent a lifetime building.

They cite the Constitution, screaming Emolument Clause, like Gomer Pyle screaming citizen's arrest.

A great gift for the HRC supporter in the family

AP fears President Trump's military junta

Robert Burns of the Associated Press fears some sort of military takeover of America, now that President Trump is on his way to the White House.

Ignore demographics

For years -- decades -- concern-troll liberals have told Republicans they are doomed unless they start reaching out to various demographic groups. By "reaching out" they mean pandering like Democrats.

President Trump proved that wrong.

President Trump does not need your advice, Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Free Press DEMANDED that President Trump go back on his word and not fulfill four campaign promises.

The people of Michigan ignored the newspaper's orders to vote for Hillary. Why should the man they elected president pay any attention to the newspaper - especially when the newspaper calls for stabbing his voters in the back?

President Trump may keep Carrier from moving to Mexico.

Last week, Indianapolis Star business reporter James Briggs mocked President Trump's efforts to keep Carrier from eliminating 1,400 jobs in Indiana by replacing its plant with one in Mexico in 2019. Briggs assured his readers it cannot be done.

Two hours, President Trump tweeted: "I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS - Will know soon!"

Remember, President Trump had no ground game

From Politico on November 4: "Democratic insiders: Clinton's ground game will sink Trump."

President Trump calls murdered detective's son

Now President Trump has a phone and a pen.

And he used it to call Dane Gregory Marconi to offer his condolences over the murder of his father, San Antonio Police Department Detective Benjamin Marconi.

President Trump's Argentine connection

Argentine President Mauricio Macri is a longtime business acquaintance of President Trump. Macri's father tried to make the Lincoln West project in Manhattan work. When he could not, he sold it to Trump.

Beer for the horses, hot chocolate for the press




Well except for Fox News, they are Pajama Boys, aren't they?

President Trump, CEO of the world

President Trump is the leader of the free world. Readers of this blog are not surprised by the moves he is making. President Trump is a chief executive officer, in addition to being a celebrity. He used both to get elected, trimming the costs in half so he would not have to rely on corrupt millionaires and billionaires, thus keeping him free to do the job he sought.

Tweet of the day

President Trump doesn't need the waterboy to coach him, AP

Josh Lederman of the Associated Press is delusional. So are his editors. Here is his lead sentence:

BERLIN (AP) — It's the last thing President Barack Obama ever expected he'd be doing in his final months in office: Coaching Donald Trump on how to be a world leader.

"A cabinet that thinks like America"

Tired of winning yet?

Yeah, me neither.

Trump hurts down ticket

Readers of the defunct Cleveland Press (a number that shrinks daily) remember "Today's Chuckle" which was a pithy piece of newsy wit. Meghan Keneally of ABC provided one on May 5, when she wrote: "Donald Trump's Impact on Down-Ticket Races Is Already Showing."

Friday, November 18, 2016

Tweet of the day

President Trump should keep his business

President Trump is worth $10 billion, much of it is tied up in real estate.

The Wall Street Journal today in an editorial demanded that President Trump hold a fire sale by selling off everything he owns in the next 73 days.

“I am tired of being told that I am racist and that this is a racist country”

Missus P came to America thirty years ago from Russia to escape Russian persecution of the Jews, according to the Fiscal Times.

President Trump won on ideas

Post-election pieces by people who got the election wrong amuse me. I compare them to the six blind men describing the elephant. But I enjoy their walks in the wilderness. The media keeps stepping on a lot of rakes.

NYT caught lying about President Trump

The New York Times gave lip service to mending its ways after the American public repudiated the media and elected Donald Trump as the 45th president. But today, the public caught the New York Times lying about Trump again.

The latest story wrong about President Trump

Forbes magazine scoffed at Donald Trump on Thursday:
Trump Can't Make Apple's iPhone Manufacturing Come Back -- And It Wouldn't Help If He Could

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Enjoy the cold, White House press corps

Trump gave the press great access. He did all those cable shows from "Morning Joe" on MSNBC at 6 a.m. to "Hannity" on Fox News at 10 p.m. Instead of victory speeches after wining a primary, he held press conferences.

His reward? A study showed 90 percent of the press coverage of him in the general election was negative.

President Trump won't put Cruz on the Supreme Court

RINO Lindsay Graham told the press Donald Trump (whom Graham opposed) should appoint Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court nominee. Some reporters filed stories that contended this was a possibility, even though President Trump  already released a list of 21 people he will consider -- and Cruz was not on the list.

Getting some truth from the NYT

Liz Spayd, the public editor of the New York Times, likely is a nice person who is earnest about journalism and really, really wants the media to get its credibility back.

I see that as a lost cause, but she could convince me otherwise. A closed mind is like a closed book, except the latter makes a good door stop

The most powerful woman on Earth

President Trump is the leader of the free world. And he got that job by surrounding himself with good people, including some strong women. None is stronger or more powerful than Kellyanne Conway.

Readers slam Megyn Kelly's book

Megyn Kelly's new book has 184 Amazon reviews -- 36 are five-star. Her average is 1.8 stars.

My book, "Trump the Press," has 45 reviews -- 44 are five-star. My average is 4.98.

Her reviews are brutal:

Apply the lessons of 2016 to 2018

Great historic victory. President Trump took 30 states, the most since 1988 for a Republican. Republicans were 22-12 in the Senate races, the best showing in a presidential race for a Republican since 1984. Looks like a 30- to 40-seat majority in the House, and control of most state legislatures and Governor's Mansions.

Great. That just means Republicans are behind as the 2018 race begins. Republicans need to learn the real lessons of 2016, and fast.

President Trump makes war less likely

For a guy the press says doesn't know a nuclear triad from a Nikon tripod, Donald Trump sure is keeping the world from going radioactive.

President Trump 1, WHCA 0

President Trump trumped the press last night, ditching them so he could have a nice steak with his family and friends (and maybe Ted Cruz).

Time shows why Hillary would be a terrible president

Time magazine bemoaned Hillary's colossal 30-state loss in a piece by Philip Elliott, "How Hillary Clinton Lost."

Actually, the piece should have been named "Why Hillary Needed to Lose."

Real reason polls got it wrong

Danielle Kurtzleben of WAMU -- American University Radio -- became the eleventieth NPR person to try to explain why the polls were wrong.

Rudy as secretary of State, Grenell at UN

I am giving President Trump the same advice I gave him as a candidate. None. He knows what he is doing. I said it was up to him to get elected. Took 30 states, the most since Clinton's re-election 20 years ago.

Doesn't mean I won't comment on his moves.

HRC unhinged?

Kincannon seems reliable. CNN would never let a reporter report this but it fits a certain pattern, and of course it fits my narrative.

Make of it what you may.

Catholics elected Trump

Oh how Hillary henchman John Podesta and his minions laughed when they thought about the Catholic vote.

Lies my Politico told me

After feeding the story line for the last two years that Trump was not a serious candidate, Politico is now pretending that he spent eighteen months of his life and $100 million to win an office he did not want.

10 things media can do to regain respect

The national news media sold its soul to get Hillary Rodham Clinton elected president this year. Since that did not happen, Satan is obligated to give a full refund.

45th Amazon Review of "Trump the Press"

Yet another review and it is the 44th five-star review. I am pumped.
Highly Recommended!
By Good Soundz
Don Surber's book Trump the Press is an excellent read detailing the media's coverage of the events up to and including the Republican National Convention. This exhaustively researched book is written in a manner that intersperses it's analysis with copious quotations from the talking heads and the chattering classes that populate the media today. I enjoyed this book very much, so much, in fact that I bought a copy for my father, who also enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed the Peak Trump section. As Mr. Surber says on his website, his most powerful weapon is the authors' own words, and he uses it to great effect. I am looking forward to the long-anticipated sequel which I imagine will detail President-elect Donald Trump's journey to the White House. Thank you Mr. Surber for providing an illuminating perspective into the current state of American politics.
Thank you for the excellent review. This mitigates the pain we all feel about Trump losing.

Oh wait, the experts were wrong again! Guess I better get cracking on the sequel.

"Clinton Probably Finished Off Trump Last Night"

Nate Silver on October 20, 2016, showed exactly why so many people consider him the gold standard in political forecasting.

Remember when the media gloated that Trump hurt his brand?

Billionaire Mark Cuban predicted that if Trump lost, Trump would be ruined. The media gobbled it up because it fed the narrative of failed businessman -- despite Trump building a $10 billion empire employing 22,000 people.

People who called President Trump "Hitler" lecture him about hate

Too tiny for the sequel


Media learns the wrong lesson

One of the unintentionally funny lines in the New York Times came from its media critic Jim Rutenberg:

Never Trump demands President Trump hire a Never Trumper

I am going to give President Trump the same advice on being president that I gave him on his campaign, which is none.

The closest to advice was to keep on doing what he was doing.

538: The polls weren't wrong. President Trump "overperformed"

It takes a big man to admit he's wrong. Carl Bialik and Harry Enten at 538 have a ways to go. They wrote "The Polls Missed Trump. We Asked Pollsters Why."

Is Chris Cillizza dumber than Chuck Todd?

Chuck Todd of NBC/MSNBC is pretty dumb because he learned nothing from his many mistakes earlier in covering the campaign. See previous post.

But could Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post be dumber?

Is Chuck Todd the dumbest?

“Nobody’s going to mistake Donald Trump for a presidential candidate, I don’t think, other than Donald Trump,” Chuck Todd said on his Meet the Press show on NBC on January 25, 2015.

As Forrest Gump's mother said, we all make mistakes. The difference is dumb people don't learn from them.

President Trump's likely EPA pick has lefties fuming

Trump picked Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, to head his transition team at the EPA.

That move rattled the right cages.

Why women abandoned Hillary

Sarah Vine, columnist for the Daily Mail, gave a deadly reason why Hillary Clinton lost on Tuesday: Trump took the white women vote 53 percent to 43 percent. She lost them for a reason best expressed by Michelle Obama in August 2007.

Your riots, they amuse me

So people in Manhattan, Los Angeles and other blue areas that robotically went to Hillary are screaming and yelling and stopping traffic. As long as it remains in their areas, I do not care what they do.

The Dowd who should write Maureen's columns

Maureen Dowd filed a coherent, delightful column on deadline about Trump's election on Wednesday. It was her best stuff because her brother, Trump supporter Kevin Dowd, wrote the best parts.

Big loser on Tuesday? TV hosts

I avoided television on Tuesday night and followed the election online. Had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I missed the breakdowns and the barking mad reaction of the Hillary-supporting millionaire snobs who give the national news. Fortunately, Media-ite filled me in.

What President Trump will do

Bad news for the Fox News All-Stars, the Weekly Standard, and the National Review. Donald Trump will appoint conservative judges, reduce the government, and re-introduce free market capitalism to the American economy after a 28-year absence.

Who will be the 2020 nominee?

Recycling from Monday so I can work on the sequel. Not one word is changed.

Hope of the day

Following the election on Drudge, not the cable outlets

The media's behavior in this election -- its refusal to take the election seriously -- has me playing video games, watching local news, and reading rather than follow the results on cable news or the broadcast networks. I fired them.

Trump 46.8, Hillary 43.6

David Lauter, political reporter of the Los Angeles Times, may disown his newspaper's own poll, but its final numbers are: Trump 46.8, Hillary 43.6.

Proof Hillary hurts Democrats

If voters forbid Hillary wins the presidency, she will do so without helping her party.

Whilst the media kept saying that Trump hurt Republicans down ticket, the truth is Republicans will keep the House by a large margin and will win a majority of the 34 the Senate seats up for grabs this year.

Today we answer Time magazine's question


My final prediction.

Monday, November 07, 2016

Nate Silver vs. Jim Hoft

Which one is right?

My final prediction

Ohio.

That is my final, take-it-to-the-bank, money-back guaranteed prediction: Donald John Trump will take Ohio. This is big because such a victory should mean that with Ohio, Trump takes the 45th presidency.

The Los Angeles Times continues to forecast a big win for The Donald with its tracking poll showing Trump up 48 to 43.2 this morning.

Melanie Sturm of Aspen, Colorado, writes the "Think Again" column for the local newspaper. She was a virtue-signally Never Trump delegate to the Republican convention, telling people to "vote your conscience," which would have meant going back on their word.

Sick of racism disguised as diversity


I'll support a free press when we get one

Having elected Barack Obama president, driven Sarah Palin from public office, passed a lie called Obamacare, and helped burn down Ferguson, Missouri, by portraying a vicious thug as a "gentle giant," the press set out to elect the most corrupt and inept presidential candidate in the nation's history.

Trump 48.2, Clinton 42.6

Trump is attracting huge crowds three or four times a day while Hillary cannot fill an arena even when offering Jay Z and Beyonce in concert free. The Los Angeles Times poll reflects this reality with its latest daily tracking poll having it Trump 48.2, Clinton 42.6.

No shots fired. It may just have been a scuffle. But the danger is there. Happened at 9:01 Eastern. He returned to finish the speech 10 minutes later.

They don't get enough credit. They don't get enough credit. They're amazing people."

Donald Trump's Argument For America

Political expert eats crow

Charlie Cook, described by the Hill as a "respected election handicapper," declared the presidential race over -- OVER -- on October 13.

Now he is eating those words. Fast.

Trump 48, Hillary 42.6

Donald John Trump is inching to not only a plurality victory, but a majority as well because it finally is dawning on the American people who the lesser of two evils are. According to the Los Angeles Times poll, Trump leads by 5.4 points as it is Trump 48, Hillary 42.6.

In 1980, Reagan won 50.7 to 41 over the bungling, inept Jimmy Carter.

Hillary is a drag on the ticket

Imagine Beyoncé performing to less than a full house -- on a Friday night. Hard to do.

OK, then imagine Jay Z performing to less than a full house -- on a Friday night. Equally hard.

Now imagine Beyoncé and Jay Z together performing to less than a full house -- on a Friday night. In Cleveland. Wow. How can this be done?

Simple. Add Hillary.

Panic at the Washington Post

Jeff Bezos has turned the Washington Post into the Camp Clinton Chronicle with stories so predictably anti-Trump (and anti-logic) that the paper is now a primer on how not to run a news organization.

Therefore, its readers should be shocked to learn that somehow Trump is tied with her.

Applying the polls to the Electoral College

FBI investigation centers on "pay-to-play"




Bret Baier of Fox News put together exactly what is happening in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton, including the fact that the agency's national security unit is investigating connections between the Clinton foundation and her work at the State department. The emails are the key.

What many of us have said all along appears to be coming true. She sold out the country as secretary of State.
