James Woods gets it

What have I been saying about PRESIDENT TRUMP's tweets and such?

They are the laser dots that the puppies in the media chase.

Arrest in Benghazi massacre

President Trump is doing what his opponent would not do, by cleaning up the mess in Benghazi.

Bad news for Kim Jong Un

Should I add Kim Jong Un to my list of fools who feuded with Donald Trump?

Suddenly on October 10, North Korea's nuclear base collapsed.

Lifestyles of the rich and swampy

Special prosecutors may take a look at Tony Podesta's work with Russian oligarchs and politicians.

The unofficial Democratic Party organ, Politico, already threw him under the special prosecutor's bus. Politico's story was headlined: "The sudden fall of Washington's ultimate powerbroker: Tony Podesta personified D.C. influence and wealth for decades. Then along came Robert Mueller."

Remember Hillary's desperate Daisy ad?

One year ago today, Hillary went there. She pulled the trigger on a desperate Daisy ad that accused Donald Trump of wanting a nuclear war.

In so doing, she threw the kitchen sink at him, convincing me that she would be the biggest political loser in my lifetime.

Thank you, Matthew Thomas

Matthew Thomas wrote the 91st Amazon review of "Trump the Press":
Trump the Press is a must read - put it # 1 on your list
I vote “Trump the Press” to be required reading in all public high schools. It’s already a classic.
Wow. Thanks.

But right now I would settle for nine more reviews to make it an even 100.

And 11 more for "Trump the Establishment" to make it an even 50.

Lose Iowa, lose the USA, Democrats

Anthropologist and public radio host Robert Leonard wrote an essay on Trump's strength in Iowa, which received national attention thanks to his superior analysis and a Matt Drudge link.

Liberals might blow off Iowa. It's largely white. Largely rural. Largely Christian. Who needs it?

What they knew, and when they knew it

Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller put together a timeline of the funding of Fusion GPS, or as I call it Fake News Incorporated.

The ex-reporters who front this opposition research have monetized gossip and fabrications in a  manner draws envy from Jeff Zucker, head of CNN.

Manafort indicted, National Review says impeach Trump

Robert Mueller indicted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, an associate, for money-laundering. The charges seem reasonable, and a prosecution worth pursuing. If guilty, Manafort and Gates deserve prison and a seven- or eight-figure fine (including restitution).

The opposite of reasonable is the response by National Review, "What The Paul Manafort Indictment Means."

Feuding with Trump is a bad idea

As I cautioned readers in a recent post once again never to feud with The Donald, it occurred to me that I should lay off using just Rosie O'Donnell and Megyn Kelly as examples when there are so many more.

Like Kevin Spacey.

My case for keeping Mueller

For a time I was on the council of Watcher of Weasels, a conservative consortium.

But I resigned after a time, but participate in their weekly forums.

Experts say if had listened to experts, Trump would have won

A year ago today, Gabriel Sherman of New York magazine wrote of the final days of the Trump campaign.

Really. That was the headline:
Final Days: Trump’s advisers are working hard to plan their own futures while riding out the roller-coaster end of the campaign.

Trump has Republicans fighting back.

President Trump rattled the media cages this morning in four tweets, hoping to get the Sunday morning talk shows to talk about Hillary's collusion with Russia.

His tweets describe a miracle.

In between rounds, Trump's an awesome president

Slate headline: "Trump Has Gone to His Virginia Golf Course Every Weekend in October."

And now, for the rest of the story.

CNN and the Russian dossier

The disclosures in the Russian dossier were so unreliable that the Clinton campaign which paid millions for the documents refused to use the allegations in the campaign.

That is how poor the quality of opposition research was from Fusion GPS. They could find nothing on The Donald.

NYT’s reporter's "remarkable ethical divisibility"

In her new book, Linda Greenhouse writes that she donated to Planned Parenthood while she covered the abortion issue as a New York Times reporter.

That's the ethical standards at the New York Times -- and the journalistic trade.

Betsy DeVos is a hero

"On Sept. 7, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos took on one of former President Barack Obama's most controversial regulatory actions: a set of 2011 campus disciplinary procedures for students accused of sexual assault. Arguing that victims of assault were being denied justice, the Obama White House weakened traditional protections for the accused, like presumption of innocence and the right to cross-examine an accuser. DeVos, in a speech at George Mason University, said the system 'is shameful, it is wholly un-American, and it is anathema to the system of self-governance to which our Founders pledged their lives over 240 years ago'," Time magazine reported.

Controversial is reporter-speak for "I don't like it."

Washington Free Beacon hired Russian dossier firm

The Washington Free Beacon disclosed today that it hired Fusion GPS to investigate Donald Trump -- before Hillary's crew hired the outfit to put together the Russian dossier.

British retired intelligence officer Christopher Steele put together the improbable packet of allegations, which no news organization or intelligence agency has independently verified. It is the greatest work of fiction by a British intelligence officer since Ian Fleming created James Bond.

Republicans now own the 401(k)

Well-played.

Bravo.

The Republican Party is now the one and only Party of the Middle Class.

Why Tillerson cleaned house

Democrats -- both in and out of the media -- whined that Rex Tillerson has "no experience" in dealing with foreigners. They complained that he is draining the swamp at Foggy Bottom.

Now we know why.

Tillerson is dumping their embedded political operatives within the State Department.

Trump's economic hurricane

The economy grew by 3 percent in the third quarter -- July, August and September -- despite three Category 5 hurricanes devastating Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

Economists expected 2.5 percent growth.

President Trump delivered what he promised -- and better than expected. It's what he does. He beats expectations. That's why he is a billionaire and Jeff Flake is not.

First anniversary of Hillary's Fake Victory

"If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president," Hillary said in May.

She referred to Jim Comey re-opening his investigation of her on October 28.

Media bemoans lost credibility

The media is boo-hooing that no one believes them any more.

Tough.

The style, not substance, conservatives

The headline in National Review read: "Conservatives Should Disavow, Not Embrace, Roy Moore."

The subheadline explained: "The Republican nominee for Alabama Senate threatens to provide conservatism’s critics with precisely the caricature they crave."

Well, heaven forbid we should give the enemy "the caricature they crave."

45-year low in border jumping

In the last three months of the reign of King Barack the Inept, the influx of illegal aliens into America was at a high.

"Fiscal year 2017 started off terribly, with a massive new surge of illegal immigrants caught trying to sneak in during the final months of the Obama administration," the Washington Times reported.

Trump defends free speech

The Department of Justice filed a brief in federal court accusing Pierce College in California of violating its students' First Amendment rights.

At issue, the college stopping a student from distributing copies of the Constitution translated into Spanish.

What did the media know, and when did they know it?

The smeller's the feller, as they say in Nobe, West Virginia, near Five Forks.

Democrats said Russians meddled in the election. Like Joe McCarthy, they have the evidence right here in this dossier. It's evidence! Evidence! EVIDENCE!

Turns out Democrats were in bed with the Russians.

Uranium One -- the scandal lives.

Apocalypse in the swamp

Bobby Mueller has an unlimited budget and nearly unlimited power to harass the president and his White House staff. The cost of lawyers may bankrupt people caught in this corrupt, amoral, and likely unconstitutional witch hunt.

But now, six months after launching Mueller's Monstrosity, the Washington elites have a problem. Trump is clean. The Clintons and Obama are the ones who smell like the the Oakland Raiders laundry.

Democrats raised idiot children, which dooms the party

Conservatives mock the Democratic Party's gerontocracy -- even as we elected a 71-year-old president, who then appointed perhaps the oldest cabinet ever. Wilbur Ross turns 80 next month.

But at least we have a young generation coming up that can think for themselves. They have had to defend themselves and their ideas against the liberal horde in the media and on campus.

The lesson the media refuses to learn

To know where we stand, we must remember where we came from. The media howls at President Trump, and sneers at his supporters.

But that is the pain from not seeing the train coming -- and still 50 weeks later, not being wise enough to learn from their mistake. As Glenn Reynolds said: "Our ruling class, still clueless."

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Media finally rats out Hillary's "Russian dossier"

The Washington Post just threw Hillary under the bus with a report:
Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier

Flake off, Flake

As a child, Jeff Flake no doubt took a lot of flak for being a Flake.

Today, he showed he is also a flake.

The superficiality of a Washington Post conservative

The editors at the Washington Post did Michael Gerson no favor by slapping on his column this headline: "How Trump Broke Conservatism."

The reference is to Kathy Griffin's complaint after she mocked beheading President Trump and lost her gig at CNN: He broke me.

Counterfeit conservative admits Trump is doing his job

Peter J. Boyer, national correspondent for the Weekly Standard, reluctantly admitted President Trump is reducing regulations -- and better than Reagan did.

That must have hurt.

Trump to Republicans: Leave 401k alone

I paid far more into Social Security than I did my 401k plan. Now retired, I draw down more from my 401k (even as it grows) than I do Social Security. (I am 100% in Jack Bogle's S&P stock index fund, and loving the Trump rally.) When I die,my kids will have an inheritance.

Press reports held that Republicans may limit 401k contributions.

70,000 more jobs

President Trump hosted Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore today, as Loong signed a $13.8 billion deal with Boeing to buy 39 airplanes for Singapore International Airlines.

That means 70,000 jobs for the United States.

18 times Rubin wanted to impeach Trump

Jennifer Rubin is the House Conservative at the Washington Post, a token who blogs in the fashion of a low-rent National Reviewer. I am not saying she is a crazy lady.

I am saying she writes like one.

She is dogged. Every day she seeks new ways to bring down Donald Trump and invalidate the past election. Every day, she fails. Multiple times.

You cannot Palinize Trump

Peggy Noonan of the Wall Street Journal expressed the hopes of the Establishment to overthrow President Trump and install Hillary as president.

They are in their second year of this, and still they have not learned that you never bet against Donald John Trump.

Radioactive Democrats

Russia colluded all right. With Hillary. The Democratic Party allowed -- for a price -- Russians to control 20% of our nation's uranium production via a front company in Canada.

The story may finally bring Democrats down

Sunday, October 22, 2017

Democrats need to turn Japanese

Shinzo Abe, prime minister of Japan, just pulled off a political victory that sets him up to be the nation’s longest-serving leader -- post World War II.

How he did it should inspire Democrats as they seek to regain relevancy after last November's shellacking.

"Germany's entire submarine fleet is now out of action"

No, that is not breaking news from 1945.

The Associated Press reported all German submarines are out of commission.

DC election guru prepares to get 2018 wrong, too

From the Cook Report, which Washington political insiders consider the gold standard of election forecasting, comes this report.
Senate: Republicans’ 2018 Prospects Erode

Bush speech was a cry from the swamp

I live near a river. One road cuts through a backwater. When the water is high during a rainy season, the brush is green and the water clear.

But as the weather dries and the water level declines, the water looks marshy. Old tires re-appear.

Abortions dropped under Obama

Americans bought more guns under Obama than any other president.

And abortions dropped 25% on his watch.

Megyn it hard for NBC

Need a good laugh?

Megyn Kelly's ratings.

Will Chris Wallace stand up for real free speech?

Chris Wallace told the Associated Press that he is dismayed that Fox News commentators are bashing the press for promoting Fake News.

He called it bad form.

Clinton uranium deal turns radioactive

The truth about Russian influence over the 2016 election is coming out.

It may be a good time for the Family Clinton to check out castles in Ireland. The Irish government offers good protection from extradition.

NFL ratings fell again last night

The flip side of the Beatles "Help" single was "I'm Down."

Ah, what a clever segue into the ratings of last night's NFL game on CBS.

The Cognitive Dissonant Pundit

I remember Rich Lowry two years ago on the Megyn Kelly show saying, “Last debate, let's be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon and he knows it.”

Where is Carly Fiorina today? Where is Donald Trump? Where is Megyn Kelly?

Trump, doing the job Dubya promised to do

George Walker Bush promised in 2006 to build a barrier to Mexico. He called it "an important step toward immigration reform."

But after signing the bill into law on October 26, 2006, but Bush 43 never got around to building it.

President Trump is building it.

Democratic ghouls

"The moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute."

October 19, 2017: Offer expired.

Times hates victory

The New York Times posted a video of the burned out, empty buildings of Raqqa, Syria after Arab, Russian, Syrian, and U.S. military units ran the Islamic State out.

You know, the terrorists that Obama smugly deemed the JVs. After all, he personally had killed Osama bin Laden and ended the war on terrorists, right?

The Raqqa video looked like parts of Detroit without the drug dealers.

It's the culture, baby

Joe Biden gave John McCain a medal the other night.

McCain then took a knee, and took a swipe at President Trump and his deplorable supporters. Mitt Romney chimed in on Twitter about McCain's honor.

All in all, a good night for Obama's useful idiots.

Democrats purge as the money flow slows

Hillary Clinton was the most expensive disaster in the history of the political industry. She shook down donors for a record $1.2 billion -- $400 million or so more than any other presidential candidate ever raised -- only to lose the election by 10 states. That was the worst showing by a Democrat since Mike Dukakis 28 years earlier.

The party has not been in as bad a shape in local and state offices since the 1920s.

Donations are down as the Weinsteins and other donors refuse to finance any more whuppings by the Republicans.

Bil Clinton's defender rips Trump

Political humor is easy.

Just report accurately what they said.

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.

Press is not "crucial to our democracy"

The bloated ego of Bob Schieffer visited CNN on Sunday, where Brian Stelter called him a “legendary journalist.” I don't know which word is more insulting.

I see stupid people

In the movie "The Sixth Sense," the 9-year-old boy, Cole Sear, said: "I see dead people."

My gift is I see stupid people.

Trump hired the best

Trump's chief of staff schooled the press last week after a series of nonsense stories about his being frustrated with President Trump.

John Kelly is a retired Marine general. He could be lobbying for some defense contractor or fly-fishing in Idaho right now.

Beating the Islamic State

Whilst the media chases the latest tweet from Trump -- whilst the NFL tries to figure out how to put genie of protest back in the bottle -- whilst the let-Harvey-be-Harvey crowd finds religion -- real news is happening.

The Islamic State is on the run.

Fake News panels fail

Another Sunday, another round of network shows that feature a half hour of the host ranting about Trump, interviewing someone to either rant on Trump or face an inquisition, followed by a half hour of panels regurgitating that Trump is the worst president, evah.

Every week, every show.

And Donald John Trump is still president.

How Clinton enabled Weinstein

Bill Clinton was a serial molester, and according to Juanita Broaddrick, a rapist as well.

Not only did Hillary greenlight a smear campaign against his accusers, but she mobilized Hollywood to come to his defense.

In so doing she enabled Harvey Weinstein and hundreds of other sexual predators by making it more difficult for victims to speak out.

Journalism test

Journalists deny a liberal bias. This is a simple test for them to prove it without arguments or emotional pleas.

Saturday, October 14, 2017

George Lopez booed -- the swamp is draining

President Trump's attacks on the media, the NFL, and others are not impulsive -- but part of a strategy to reverse 60 years of cultural deterioration.

In draining the swamp, the president has to cut off its main tributary: the media.

Cowboys ratings down 23%

America's team is now America's apologists, and fans are walking away.

Or changing channels.

Make Congress's prescriptions public record

In his last run for the Senate, Robert Byrd could no longer control his arms. They flapped like wings. His staff called it benign tremors. He died mid-term,

Inquiries about his health went nowhere.

Disney is a Weinstein-ESPN mess

Money ruins everything. The last two decades have been easy living for Disney. The money rolled in. ESPN for example received $6 a month from every cable customer -- more than $7 billion a year.

Disney got sloppy. It became a bloated, unshaven, social justice warrior showing up for business meetings in a  bathrobe, and hitting on the interns. A corporate Bill Clinton.

A great week for America

I was going to title this, "A great week for Trump," which it was and that's nice for him.

But his great week was part of the great week America had.

Prosecutors say Sen. Menendez, D-NJ, used underage hookers

Democratic Senator Robert Menendez is on trial for taking bribes from a Florida eye doctor, who committed $105 million in Medicare fraud.

Among the payoffs to Menendez were trips to the Dominican Republic, where he may have slept with underage hookers, federal prosecutors said.

A bad week for Never Trump

Be kind. The childish resistance had a rough week.

Sunday saw Vice President Mike Pence and his Colts-loving wife, Karen, walk out of a game when the 49ers disrespected the flag.

Times reins in Twitter

“It’s important to remember that tweets about President Trump by our reporters and editors are taken as a statement from The New York Times as an institution, even if posted by those who do not cover him. The White House doesn’t make a distinction. In this charged environment, we all need to be in this together.”

-- New York Times new policy on using social media.

I have said that if I were foolish enough to own a newspaper, I would ban the staff from using Twitter.

Fake News on Obamacare

Maybe we should call the Fake News that CBS, CNN, NBC, and other spread like wildfire what they really are.

Bleating Democratic talking points.

Hollywood's feud with Trump implodes

Hollywood has been your crazy aunt in the attic over the election of Donald Trump with actresses shaving their heads and putting on knitted caps -- pussy hats -- to screech their hatred of their president.

In so doing, they did a dumb thing. They got in a feud with Donald Trump. Never ever do that, readers. You will wind up worse for the wear.

Name that party: Vote fraud edition

Pedro Cortés resigned as the chief election official of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania after allowing illegal aliens to register to vote.

Chris Brennan of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote a 612-word report on the resignation.

Disagreeing with a liberal is now a violation of the First Amendment


Bret Baier: "It’s left, right, and Trump."

Bret Baier is fair, balanced, and unafraid. As host of "Special Report" on Fox News, he runs the news down the middle with an emphasis on Washington. He's steadily doubled the viewership on his watch.

In an interview with McKay Coppins of Atlantic discussed the rise of Trump.

NBC News shows its double standards

Rowan Farrow had a blockbuster story. A Hollywood producer famed for bringing home Oscars for women was also a sexual pervert who demanded women sleep with him to get plum roles.

NBC spiked the story. It needed more sourcing.

But NBC did not hesitate to report "Trump Wanted Tenfold Increase in Nuclear Arsenal, Surprising Military" -- even though no one went on the record.

No, Hillary, you are “insidious and subversive to democracy”

On November 8, 2016, Americans elected Donald Trump as their 45th president.

More than 11 months after Americans rejected her, Hillary Clinton continues to accept the loss with all the grace and dignity of a three-year-old in need of a nap.

Golf diplomacy

Donald Trump took Lindsey Graham golfing on Monday -- the Columbus Day holiday -- and Graham said the president shot a 73.

The press howled at the score.

The Mitch McConnell court

While President Trump is draining the swamp, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is re-shaping the federal judiciary.

Fred Barnes -- a reporter's reporter -- explained that McConnell is going all-in on getting Trump's nominees through. McConnell is bending the rules and writing new ones to get the job done.

Clinton enabled Weinstein

This post can be summed up in six words.

Follow the money. It's our party now

Donald Trump aborted his 2000 Reform Party bid because the party started by H. Ross Perot had attracted the crazies.
''So the Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani. This is not company I wish to keep.'' -- Donald Trump, February 14, 2000.
Trump has turned the Republican Party into the Reform Party -- attracting millions of small donors who had it with Washington.

Hillary's election would have shelved Weinstein story

Amanda Carpenter threw cold water on the media feeding frenzy over the revelation that for decades Harvey Weinstein preyed on women in Hollywood.

She pointed out that if we elected Hillary president, he would be home free. The New York Times would have protected him just as it did in 2004 when Sharon Waxman tried to break the news.

"What Happened" may end Clinton's marriage

Tomorrow marks the 42nd anniversary for Bill and Hillary Clinton.

But their rocky marriage held together by politics may finally end over politics, the Daily Mail reported.

Welcome to hell, NFL

Few moves are as dumb as feuding with Donald Trump. Rosie O'Donnell discovered this the hard way. Megyn Kelly, too. Now the NFL has discovered that you don't tug on Superman's cape -- and you don't mess around with The Donald.

Welcome to hell, NFL.

Newsweek's glass house

Newsweek had it with Fake News following the Las Vegas Massacre, and published "Fake News Stories About the Las Vegas Shooting, Debunked" the day after the shooting.

Did Judi Dench sleep with Harvey Weinstein?

Holly Hunter, Anna Paquin, Dianne Wiest, Mira Sorvino, Juliette Binoche, Gwyneth Paltrow, Judi Dench, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz, Meryl Streep, and Jennifer Lawrence have all won Oscars for Weinstein films, according to the Daily Beast.

When these women go on tours to promote their next film or project, presenters on TV should ask them if they slept with Harvey Weinstein.

Trump's 70 points of laughter

President Trump just answered the congressional question of what Congress has to do to get him to grant amnesty to illegal aliens.

Jump through 70 hoops.

End of gun law push?

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California signaled the end on Sunday of her party's quest for more and more gun control.

ESPN suspends woman for calling to boycott the Cowboys

UPDATED: Since I first posted this, ESPN has suspended. Jemele Hill for calling for a boycott of the sponsors of the Dallas Cowboys. The headline is changed from "ESPN (sorta) joins NFL boycott."

Speaking against Trump, not Weinstein

Four years ago -- when Harvey Weinstein's predation of women was an open secret in Hollywood but not among the unwashed masses -- Rebecca Rolfe did a study of Oscar speeches. Rolfe found more Oscar winners thanked Weinstein than thank God.

Unhappy Indigenous People Day

Today marks the celebration of the 525th anniversary of Christopher Columbus and his party landing in the Western hemisphere. They brought sugar plants and gunpowder to the new world.

Revisionists and other Marxists want to celebrate today as Indigenous People Day.

Well, OK if you wish to go back to the Stone Age.

Sportswriter opposes free speech

Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star thinks the First Amendment is a one-way street.

He blasted Vice President Mike Pence for standing up for the national anthem at an NFL, and then walking out when the San Francisco 49ers disrespected the flag and the country,

In a column minutes after Pence left, Doyel wrote: "This was planned." -- as if the 49ers were spontaneous.

49ers take a knee, Pence takes a hike

Vice President Mike Pence stood up for the flag after members of the San Francisco 49ers refused to stand up for what their former quarterback called “a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

That statement last year from Colin Kaepernick shows that their protest is unpatriotic.

U.S. forces clean up Obama's ISIS mess

Barack Obama on the Islamic State on January 27, 2014:
"The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant." 
ISIS proceeded to show the world that Obama couldn't hack the Junior Varsity.

On this date in 2016, they thought they killed Trump's hopes

One year ago today, David A. Fahrenthold of the Washington Post broke the story that forced Donald Trump to drop out of the race, and won Fahrenthold the Pulitzer:
Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005

Saturday, October 07, 2017

Weinstein was a warning to Hillary

I have not commented on the Vegas massacre because I cannot add much to the discussion. The call for gun control is rote. Reflexive. It fell upon Jimmy Kimmel to deliver the stale call to strip handguns from granny.

But the New York Times switched subjects by dumping on Harvey Weinstein, a repugnant Hollywood producer who in a tradition pre-dating Hollywood had a casting couch. They made films in New Jersey before they moved to Hollywood. Bedding beauties was a perk.

An entitlement.

What Byron York missed about the Russian ads

When it comes to analyzing America, few are as cool and calm as Byron York of the Washington Examiner. He got Trump before Scott Adams did.

His "Taking Donald Trump seriously" column on May 10, 2015, is a great read that came five weeks before Trump officially entered the race.

Killing Obamacare by making states follow Obamacare

President Trump is moving to collapse Obamacare by -- are you ready for this? -- making states live by the rules of Obamacare.

The Washington Post is angry.

How dare he not grant waivers to states on Obamacare.

Friday, October 06, 2017

A shoelace is now a noose

How hung up on race is the millennial generation?

They think a shoelace is a noose.

Maybe we should ban shoelaces now.

Fearless Girl is underpaid

Fearless Girl, a statue installed by State Street Global Advisors on March 7, 2017, in front of Merrill Lynch’s Charging Bull statue, which became a symbol of Wall Street investing.

The media in March hailed it as feminism standing up to The Man.

Trumponomics is working

Three major hurricanes in one month after nearly a decade with but one will wreck any economic plan.

Except this one.

Why should voting be easy?

One of the shopworn and fallacious arguments for ending private ownership of guns is that it is easier to buy a gun than it is to vote.

It is not.

It should be.

Alec Baldwin regrets portraying Trump

After more than a year of mocking President Trump on SNL, it finally dawned on Alec Baldwin that this isn't working. He cannot Palinize the man.

Duh.

The gunless vote for Democrats

The New York Times let the truth slip out. The Times showed disarming people is the quickest way to suck them into socialism.

Every black adult male should buy a rifle

Singer Eric Benét tweeted, "If every black adult male in the U.S. bought and registered a semi-automatic rifle tomorrow, Congress would Pass gun control laws by Friday."

He is wrong. No laws would change.

But white conservatives would be happy.

The rest of the "Trump Is a Moron" story

I probably should save this for my next book, but I find the whole tale to be so delightful that I cannot wait to comment.

NBC reported, "Tillerson’s Fury at Trump Required an Intervention From Pence."

No, Twitter should not censor Fake News

The New York Times in one of its news stories-disguised-as-an-editorial called rumors Fake News in a story today.

With its circulation, advertising and influence at 30-year lows, the Times and the rest of the dinosaur media want Congress to censor social media.

The Times story did not mention its own Nobel-wining economist, Paul Krugman, spreading the Fake News that President Trump brought cholera to Puerto Rico.

Trumping the welfare state

President Trump has the Marxists treed. Having undone the worst of Obama's communist "environmental" regulations, President Trump is about to dismantle the welfare state -- using the very method that Obama did to recreate it after welfare reform.

Executive orders.

FDA shows its worthlessness

Be a rebel. Buy Nashoba Granola bread.

That would be my advertisement for the company after the Walter Pecks in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered the company to quit listing love as an ingredient.

Media cannot stop saying gun control

The airheads of TV and newspaper squawk gun control whenever a shooting occurs.

I want to tell these boys and girls, the United States has had gun control for 49 years.

Up next, OJ joins the Secret Service


Click, in case you forgot the story.

Purge 'em

The top aide of Vice President Mike Pence said it may be time to purge the Republican Party of its Democrats, Politico reported.

Judges so good, the Wall Street Journal noticed

President Trump is delivering on his promise to appoint conservative judges and justices. The Wall Street Journal used the occasion of the Supreme Court's return to work as an opportunity to thank him.

$20 million food stamp fraud

Local, state and federal law enforcement officials bust a dozen retailers this weekend charging them with ripping off $20 million from taxpayers in food stamp fraud.

About "Trump's Katrina"

Liberals wet themselves this weekend over the mayor of San Juan blasting President Trump.

She was a regular Ray Nagin, you know, the New Orleans mayor who screwed up the levee break in Hurricane Katrina and successfully hung the blame on President Bush 43.

Crazy like a fox works with North Korea

Not all the news is fake. Sometimes the truth seeps out of Washington. And sometimes a reporter decides to throw a change-up and tell the truth, which Jonathan Swan of Axios did in "Scoop: Trump urges staff to portray him as 'crazy guy'."

Saving Megyn Kelly

By all accounts, Megyn Kelly's first week as a "Today" show presenter went bad and not in a schadenfreude way. Producers had to hoodwink the cast of "Will and Grace" to appear on the show, and Jane Fonda got all huffy when Kelly asked about her plastic surgery.

Add to this Kelly's disastrous prime-time show, and you gave a $15 million-a-year albatross.

But her show not only can be salvaged, but it can dominate the morning ratings.

Hey, Obama, those jobs are back

President Trump got some good news today, which means America got good news today.

Bad news for Obama.

What [should have] happened

"Hillary gives Americans fifty-six (and counting) incredible reasons why she didn't win" by Gregg Jarrett is pure genius. She even blamed James Comey, Obama's FBI chief, the very man who likely kept her from going to jail.

What if instead of being a corrupt weasel, Comey had been a man who stood for truth, justice, and the American way? What if he had recommended indicting her for her role in undermining national security by putting state secrets at risk of Russian hacking?

Trump's big week

While the media tried to blame President Trump for a storm devastating Puerto Rico, for the collapse of the NFL, and for Dr. Seuss being a racist, the Trump administration continued to make its moves to Make America Great Again.

Newspapers, half the content, twice the price

The world went digital leaving behind the dead-tree dailies that delivered yesterday's news tomorrow.

Newspaper executives saw this coming. Most gave half-assed attempts at the Internet, and cashed in their chips long ago. Julie Reynolds of the Nation finally noticed this and filed a report, "How Many Palm Beach Mansions Does a Wall Street Tycoon Need? As many as destroying America’s hometown newspapers can buy him."

How Trump beat the NFL

The biggest story of the weekend is from Canton, Ohio, where suddenly -- spontaneously -- for no apparent reason but plain patriotism, the Pro Football Hall of Fame sprouted 800 American flags.
