Never Trump is killing journalism

I should have been one of those Fake Conservatives. The money must be good because the Never Trumpers on TV and in print outnumber actual conservatives today.

You don't have to be that bright to be a Never Trumper, just superficial. All that is required is to ignore things of substance and concentrate on style.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: November

My MAGA review, day by day by month, continues.

Weekend of Fake News

The press has no shame. Reporters and editors believe they can get away with lies and bring down the  duly elected American president.

They should remember the Ninth Commandment: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor."

What if regimes change in Iran and North Korea?

"Why Is Donald Trump Still So Horribly Witless About the World?" -- Robin Wright, August 4, 2017.

I forgot I wrote that

Peter J. Rzeminski wrote a five-star review of "Trump the Establishment," which I genuinely appreciate.

But he quoted a passage I had forgotten I had written.

A president unafraid of the press

President Trump gave Mike Schmidt of the New York Times an impromptu half-hour interview on Trump's golf course.

The press went wild. People who last week bitched about no year-end press conference showed open  hostility to the president talking to a reporter unguarded by his flacks.

The reaction tells you everything about the power of the press.

XFL revival

Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart believes Vince McMahon of pro-wrestling fame is going to revive the XFL to compete with the NFL come this fall. The MAGA league would be patriotic and push traditional football whatever that means.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: October

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at October.

Scott Pruitt, hero of the revolution

When we think about war heroes in the Trump administration, we think of Generals James Mattis and John F. Kelly.

But how about a shout out to the fellow who is winning the war on coal?

West Virginian of the Year: Donald John Trump

The Charleston newspaper will name its West Virginian of the year. I think the Gazette gave it to Byrd four times. His address for decades was a post office box in Sophia.

But I honor the one man who has done more for the state than any other politician in Washington since Lincoln declared West Virginia a state.

Thank you, Dean W

Dean W wrote the 95th Amazon review of "Trump the Press," leaving the book five shy of the century mark.

It was a beaut!

Stay out of Iran

Protests against the government are rising in Iran. Christian Whiton, a senior fellow for strategy and public diplomacy at the Center for the National Interest, wants President Trump to send help and support the demonstrators.

No. Fools rush in. That's a Hillary Clinton move (see Libya). That's a Barack Obama move (see Egypt). That's a neocon move (see Afghanistan and Iraq).

Winning converts Trump's critics

The day before the election in 2016, Marc A. Thiessen of the Washington Post assured his readers: "Relax, Democrats! A Trump win would be a third Obama term."

Merrick Garland, the mullahs of Iran, and the EPA would like a word with Mister Thiessen.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: September

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at September.

A plan for 2018

Press coverage of President Trump's first calendar year was 5% positive, 62% negative compared to Obama's honeymoon of 42% positive, 20% negative coverage.

Both men ended their first calendar years at 46% approval, 53% disapproval in the Rasmussen poll.

Definitely, Trump is doing the better job.

Joe Manchin, Trumped

President Trump lit into West Virginia's senior Senator Joe Manchin.

GOOD.

Manchin is a two-faced liar who greased the skids for his daughter, who rips people off with her overpriced Epi-Pens.

Media won't admit its problem

In reporting that most Americans no longer trust the media, Indira Lakshmanan of the Poynter Institute showed why people should not trust the media.

Fake News may cost Democrats the mid-term

The party that controls the White House usually loses many congressional seats in the next election.

But the leader of the Gingrich Revolution of 1994 -- which gave the House of Representatives to Republicans for the first time in 40 years -- believes Democrats may pay a big price in 2018 for all the Fake News against President Trump in 2017.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: August

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at August.

Give Max Boot the boot

President Trump separates the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff, and the conservatives from the pretenders. Falling into the latter category is Max Boot, a Moscow-born, Los Angeles-raised neocon who in the Age of Trump has decided to stop faking conservatism.

I thought the left liked Hugo Chávez

Andrés Miguel Rondón is a Venezuelan economist who lives in Madrid. Despite his lack of any experience in Trump's America, the Post published a column by him, "To beat President Trump, you have to learn to think like his supporters."

Spy corruption began with W

Blame George Walker Bush for Obama's political abuse of the nation's spy agencies. Sharyl Attkisson, an Emmy-winning investigative journalist, wrote in the Hill, "10 times the intel community violated the trust of US citizens, lawmakers and allies."

Her list began with President Bush 43.

And it began before 9/11. In fact, it was one of his first acts as president.

Trump train runs through Jerusalem

"The Kotel [Western Wall] is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to call the train station that leads to it after President Trump." -- Israel Transportation Minister Israel Katz.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: July

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at July.

House investigating FBI

Buried at the end of a 52-paragraph snooze in the Washington Post is the real news: the House Intelligence Committee is taking on corruption of the FBI.

CJR is making journalism worse

The once prestigious Columbia Journalism Review showed just how awful it has become in its year-in-review by Pete Vernon. While recognizing good works -- and I will have to take Vernon's word on a few of the stories he praised -- Vernon failed to acknowledge that Fake News is real and growing.

Vernon did not say one word about the big investigative report on CNN on June 22 -- “Congress investigating Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials” -- that resulted in three people losing their jobs: the reporter, the editor, and their boss.

Time to admit, Obama failed

President Trump has this ability to show people for who they are. He outed much of the conservative commentariat as the insincere opportunists they are. The Never Trump movement succeeded only in self-purging conservatism of its flakes and fakes.

But the real moment of clarity in the first Year of the Trump comes as America realizes just how incompetent and phony Barack Obama was.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: June

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at June.

Christmas sales up 5.8%

CBS reported that Christmas sales reached $598 billion this year, up $33 billion over last year, for a 5.8% gain.

That is the biggest gain in Christmas sales in a dozen years.

Last year, sales were up 3.6% after a 3.2% gain in 2015. The last time we had a gain larger than 5.8% was in 2005 when sales jumped by 6.2%. The chart.

Guatemala will move embassy to Jerusalem

That Guatemala has an embassy in Israel impresses me. It's a small, poor nation about the size of Tennessee or Virginia.

Now President Jimmy Morales will follow President Trump's lead and move Guatemala's embassy back to Jerusalem.

"His yuge ego is the worst thing about his presidency"

First, merry Christmas. I spent time with family this Christmas, and contemplated the birth of Christ and the travails of Joseph and Mary. There was a story in the Daily Mail about a miracle baby born the size and weight of a can of soda who finally went home for Christmas. And it snowed in Poca. We woke up to an unexpected snowfall that just covered the grass, and melted decently by afternoon.

But along with the "over-reaction figure" of The Donald (and a phone call from a loved one half a world away) my best present was the realization by Trump's critics that, hey, maybe he is getting the job done.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: May

As I give this MAGA review of of the first year of MAGA one month each day, I remind readers that I am not writing this live. I enjoyed Christmas morning.

I trust readers did too.

Now open this present, and celebrate.

Merry Christmas



And to all, a good night.

Hollywood, Trumped

So Hollywood bravely took on President Trump this year, spurning and mocking the choice of the people of more states than anyone had won since Reagan was president (Bush in 1988 carried 40 states).

And this year, lefties mocked the Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: April

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at April.

Trump is checking off Hugh Hewitt's list

Hugh Hewitt is outside my ken. There are too many conservative voices out there for me to keep up with all of them. He has a radio show and is well connected within the Republican Party. We share the curse of being Cleveland sports fans by birth. He was born in Warren, Ohio.

We also share fans, and one sent me a note about a Hugh Hewitt T-shirt of yore.

"The most consequential president in the modern era"

Michael Smerconish of CNN is no fan of Donald Trump -- mainly because Trump panned his show in 2014. But Smerconish has principles and insights from Philadelphia that put the Washington-Manhattan crowd to shame.

"I think he could become the most consequential president in the modern era. Consequential meaning, most important and significant, having the biggest overall impact," he said on his show on Saturday.

Trump taxes Harvard

Bwa ha ha.

Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Harvard will have to pay taxes next year on that $37 billion endowment it has.

For centuries, Harvard has solicited tax-exempt donations from the wealthy under the guise of funding the university. But instead of just building buildings or covering operating costs, Harvard invests the money, and the money has piled up.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: March

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at March.

Trump rid conservatism of its phonies

Roger L. Simon, the CEO of Pajamas Media, wrote a simple piece, "Why the Remaining Never Trumpers Should Apologize Now."

Some of them tweeted no we don't. And I agree because the truth is nobody needs them.

They stood athwart history screaming stop, and the Trump train ran over them without so much as a quiver felt by passengers.

Ending net neutrality nets MSNBC anchors bonuses

I realize $1,000 is not much to the millionaires row in MSNBC's lineup of presenters.

But these left-of-Lenin lemmings will receive $1,000 bonuses as part of Comcast's bonus program celebration of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, as well as the Federal Communications Commission's rescission of the onerous and unconstitutional net neutrality regs that gave the federal government control of the Internet.

What Trump thinks he has accomplished

As part of his fund-raising, President Trump sent out a "2017 Accomplishments Survey," which I will share with readers. It is a fascinating look at what the president thinks are his greatest accomplishments in what I modestly consider the Greatest Year in American History.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: February

My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at February.

Tax Cut Worries Germany

Zentrum für Europäische Wirtschaftsforschung -- ZEW -- the Centre for European Economic Research in Mannheim -- issued a statement on President Trump's tax cuts:
"Demnach sinkt die effektive Steuerbelastung für in den USA tätige Unternehmen inklusive der Steuern der US-Bundesstaaten ganz erheblich von derzeit 36,5 Prozent auf 22,7 Prozent. Ursache ist nicht nur die starke Verringerung des Steuersatzes von 35 Prozent auf nur noch 20 Prozent, sondern auch die geplante Sofortabschreibung für bestimmte Kapitalgüter. Die effektive Steuerlast für Unternehmen in den USA liegt nach der Reform unter der in Deutschland (28,2 Prozent) und nahe beim Durchschnittswert in der Europäischen Union (20,9 Prozent)."
Translation: We're screwed.

Jorge Ramos: Trump broke me

In the summer of 2015, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was on top of the world, ma. He had taken on that deplorable Donald John Trump, who was running for president.

Judge tosses lawsuits against Trump

A judge ended the stupid Democratic talking point that President Trump violated the emoluments clause in the Constitution because Trump International rents rooms to anyone visiting Washington.

Federal workers are not allowed to accept titles of nobility or gifts from foreign governments without the approval of Congress.

2017, Greatest Year in American History: January

Trust me, this is the only review of 2017 that you need. Oh sure, Dave Barry's annual recap never lets you down, but this is my MAGA review of the first year of MAGA, which covers each day, one month at a time.

The Scorekeeper is back -- through New Year's Day.

Achieving what Reagan could not

Having watched their enemies driven before them on Wednesday, the Conans of the Republican Party woke to the sound of the lamentations of the women.

"It's over," John Cassidy of the New Yorker wrote after Republicans cut his taxes on Wednesday.

President Trump is Santa Claus

From Trump the Press:
In a column in Slate, Reihan Salam, executive editor of the National Review, recalled growing up in Brooklyn in the 1980s and 1990s. “Trump was the living embodiment of gaudy success — a kind of mash-up of Santa Claus, Scrooge McDuck, and Vito Corleone. When I was a kid, it was not at all uncommon to hear friends and classmates declare that they wanted to be Donald Trump when they grew up. They didn’t want to be real estate developers or casino magnates. They literally wanted to be Trump, which seems doubly strange in hindsight, as so few of the kids I have in mind were white,” Salam wrote on February 11, 2016.
With the tax cut, we see the Santa side.

Is North Korea collapsing?

A North Korean soldier walked away from North Korea through the DMZ on Thursday morning (Wednesday night in the United States).

No shots were fired.

No one tried to stop him.

Donald Trump won 2017

My blog's purpose is to lift the media's fog of war called Fake News. If we had a free press in America, Donald Trump would be the most popular president since Reagan. But we have a press beholden to the godless Democratic Party.

Passage of the centerpiece of Trump's domestic agenda -- tax cuts -- shows that The Donald is ahead of where the community organizer was at this point in his presidency.

Americans optimism highest in a decade

"2017 is the year that Americans finally put the recession behind them in terms of their attitudes about the economy, and it took a change in leadership," said pollster Micah Roberts of Public Opinion Strategies.

End the participation trophies

The Party Of Obama (POO) has hyperventilated since we dared elect Donald Trump president. This is not normal, they cry.

They cannot accept their loss.

America First, the foreign policy

Michael Warren of the Weekly Standard warned readers on Monday: "White House Watch: Trump Will Vow Not to 'Impose our Values on Others' in National Security Speech."

This is a natural and logical reaction to the failure of invasion and nation building.

Real Americans protest higher taxes

Suppose they gave a protest and not many people showed up?

The Washington Post would still play it up as the death of the Republican Party.

Accuser explains why she tried to join Trump's campaign 19 years later

Jill Harth wants America to believe that Donald Trump tried to rape her in 1997 -- and then begged him to hire her for his 2016 campaign.

Standing up for Trump on Twitter

Why do conservatives give free content to Twitter? It hates conservatives and wants us to die.

So please enjoy the following.

ESPN chief becomes 41st to lose a feud with Trump

Not everyone who feuds with Donald Trump loses his job or reputation.

But enough do that no prudent person would risk the humiliation.

Trump makes 1,579 regulations disappear

Cutting the corporate tax rate by 40% is a great accomplishment which will give U.S. companies and foreign investors an excellent reason to invest trillions -- yes, trillions -- in the U.S. economy.

But let us not overlook Donald Trump's greatest economic accomplishment as president: cutting the arms off the regulatory octopus that strangles our nation.

Another Trump basher fired

President Trump did not meet the standards of Stephen Henderson, managing director of opinion and commentary at the Detroit Free Press. In column after column this year and last, Henderson called Trump a bigot, a bully, and a harasser of women.

Today the Detroit Free Press fired Henderson.

For sexual harassment.

Michael Graham in the Morning

I am on it. "Michael Graham in the Morning."

Child refugees in Britain "had a beard and were balding"

Suffer the little children.

Those racist, xenophobic deplorables want to turn children away from living in England.

Why some of these children have beards and are balding from the stress of being little kids escaping their homeland for the relief checks and free rent of England.

Mueller probe meltdown

Andrew C. McCarthy Jr. headed the team that successfully prosecuted the Muslim terrorists who bombed and tried to destroy the World Trade Center in 1993. His take on Robert Mueller's investigation is explosive:
A long front-page story in the Washington Post Friday that claims America’s security is at risk because President Trump refuses to accept findings of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election is deeply flawed and amounts to fake news.
I reach this conclusion based on my 25 years working in and with the U.S. intelligence community. It is clear to me that the Post story is designed to advance the left’s teetering Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

France takes over for U.S.A. in funding junk science

President Trump's rejection of the Paris climate accord just saved American taxpayers millions. France has decided to start paying for the junk science manufactured by climate change propagandists in America.

Merci beaucoup, suckahs.

#MeToo helps the media clear dead wood

Ah, now I get it. The story about NBC settling a sexual harassment suit involving Chris Matthews broke for a reason.

72 of them.

PolitiFact is the lie of the year

Since winning the Pulitzer in 2008, PolitiFact of the Tampa Bay Times has become a partisan joke that lives in a world where Republicans always lie even when they tell the truth, and Democrats always tell the truth even when they lie.

Usually, PolitiFact is able to cherry pick enough facts to rationalize its decisions. But in selecting its lie of the year for 2017, the web site was unable to do much more than say well, everyone we like says it is a lie.

Tax bill says drill, baby, drill

"We can't just drill our way to lower gas prices." --  Barack Obama, former president of the choom club at Punahou School in Hawaii.

The Republican Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 will allow oil exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This will help continue to drill our way to lower gas prices.

PC word games finally bite liberals

The Washington Post reported, "CDC gets list of forbidden words: fetus, transgender, diversity."

I cannot independently verify the story but if true, the story shows some payback for decades of bullying of normal people by the politically correct crowd. You face jail in California if you call a man "he."

Political impact of the tax cut

I do not know how the 2018 midterm elections will end, but I do know that passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 will help the economy and Republicans.

This I know because Stuart Rothenberg indicated that passage hurts Republicans.

Friday, December 15, 2017

770 leave EPA

The EPA is melting,

Nearly 5% of the staff of the bloated Environmental Protection Agency have left the department through retirements and plain quitting.

They will not be missed.

Bartiromo explains the Trump Rally

You and I knew the stock market would soar when we elected Donald John Trump president, but we did not fully understand how that worked.

Maria Bartiromo just explained how electing Trump improved the economy.

Gloria Allred's racket revealed

Gloria Allred and her daughter, Lisa Bloom (a former attorney of Harvey Weinstein), "sought donor cash for two Trump accusers," the Hill reported.

Call off your witch hunt, Washington

Washington had no problem with a secretary of state receiving millions of dollars in "donations" to her fake charity, but believes some foreigner renting a room at Trump International violates the "emoluments clause" and invalidates the last election.

The whole town is targeting Trump, his children (so much for a president's children being off-limits) and anyone who has ever done business with him.

Voters care not about net neutrality

The following post quotes liberals, which means it uses filthy language.Parental discretion is advised.

Democrats believe they have found the Holy Grail from 2018: net neutrality.

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Leave Social Security alone

House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to leave Congress next year. On his way out the door, he plans to destroy the Republican Party. From Politico:
The speaker has since gone public with this aspiration, suggesting that 2018 should be the year Washington finally tackles what he sees as the systemic problems with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

The lessons of Alabama

Republicans made huge mistakes in Alabama on Tuesday. Here is what they should learn from those mistakes.

Where are our amendments?

Republicans control both houses of Congress and most state legislatures in a manner not seen since the 1920s.

So where are the proposed constitutional amendments to reverse all those court decisions the Republicans decried over the years?

Tax cut means bigger paychecks in February

Republicans should have had this done by now, but it looks like the tax cut bill will be signed by Christmas.

“It’s critically important for Congress to quickly pass these historic tax cuts. If Congress sends me a bill before Christmas -- this is breaking news -- the IRS has just confirmed that Americans will see lower taxes and bigger paychecks beginning in February,” President Trump said.

Tavis Smiley is the 38th to learn the hard way not to feud with Donald Trump

Congratulations to Tavis Smiley of PBS on becoming the 38th person to learn that feuding with Donald Trump can prove hazardous to your lifestyle.

PBS just suspended Smiley for sexual harassment.

A cry for decency in the House

Democratic Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur of Ohio has been in the House nearly 35 years. That is far too long.

However, what she shared with Democrats in private was excellent advice. She told her colleagues, ladies, dress professionally.

Republicans need to quit bashing their candidates

In 2010, Republicans abandoned Christine O'Donnell, and lost the Senate race in Delaware.

In 2012, Republicans abandoned Todd Akin, and lost the Senate race in Missouri.

In 2017, Republicans abandoned Roy Moore, and lost the Senate race in Delaware.

Trump should resign from the Senate

Politico somberly reported, "A sixth senator on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump to resign amid renewed attention to past allegations of sexual harassment and assault."

All six are Democrats (although Bernie Sanders describes himself as an independent).

Eric Trump burns CNN

Like father like son like brother.

USA Today freaks over a tweet

Apparently no one has paid enough attention to the editorial page of USA Today to suit its staff. Today, the newspaper's editorial board decided to publish an editorial so contemptible that it is the talk of the town in Washington.

In the rest of the nation, the editorial is further proof that journalists have lost their damned minds.

It's Trump's world; we just live in it

I posted this two years ago today.

Let's see how well it held up.

Gillibrand makes the case for not electing her

Kirsten Gillibrand attacked President Trump.

She DEMANDED he resign as president

He responded by reminding everyone she's a third rater as a senator.

She cried sexism.

Today's American hero

Because he tweets with good humor, we tend to take Justice Don Willett less seriously than we ought to. When President Trump put Willett on his short list of Supreme Court candidates, some thought it was because Dum-Dum Donald was enraptured by his tweets. Ah, the comical superficiality of all those deep thinkers in Never Trump Land.

But Justice Willett already had impressed both senators from Texas and the Heritage Foundation.

Mueller is a disaster

The Mueller investigation is a catastrophe that reflects everything that is wrong with Washington, the FBI, and federal prosecutors. If power corrupts then all three are absolutely corrupted.

Robert Mueller himself is incompetent and an ethical disaster.

He assembled a partisan crew of Clintonians who are tied to the laughably implausible "Russian Dossier" with its tall tales from Kremlin officials of urinating hookers and the like.

The investigation itself is a crime syndicate headed by a lifer federal prosecutor whose incompetence as FBI director cost taxpayers $5.8 million to settle with the man Mueller relentlessly hounded as the falsely accused anthrax mailer.

Manufacturers: We're hiring and giving raises

From CNBC: "Manufacturing CEO survey shows record high optimism on prospect of tax reform."

American manufacturers trust President Trump because he is a capitalist. He is not a selfie-taking adolescent.

Ryan Lizza joins the Trump Broke Me club

Ryan Lizza of CNN and the New Yorker is the fellow who cost Anthony Scaramucci his job by quoting what Scaramucci said to him in private.

Lizza has long feuded with Trump.

Now Lizza is out of a job.

@CNN shows it could not cover a fire in its newsroom

At the very moment -- 8:45 a.m. -- when New York police were briefing reporters about a terrorist attack, CNN had breaking news of its own. President Trump drinks up to 12 cans of Diet Coke a day.

Facts first? Bash Trump first.

Trump's winning bothers liberals

Amy Davidson Sorkin of New Yorker did her best concern-trolling in a piece sub-headlined, "In less than a year, the President, with help from the Alabama Senate candidate, has so damaged the Party that it may never recover."

Yes, a record number of appellate judges appointed, stocks up 30%, unemployment at a 17-year low, Marxist regulations repealed, the War on Coal ended, the Islamic State disappearing, illegal immigration down to less than zero as more people exit than enter, and tax cuts are on the way -- that is so much winning that Republicans may never be the Runner-Up Party again.

Today's proof D.C. is out of touch

Republicans own the White House, both houses of Congress, 34 governorships, and 32 state legislatures.

Yet, 12 of the 18 people Politico considers "18 to Watch in 2018" are Democrats.

Trump is cleaning up journalism

Well, journalists had another stellar week of buying petards from Acme, setting the explosives off, and hoisting themselves high above the ground.

Let's play $100,000 Pyramid

Dick Clark had a game show called The $10,000 Pyramid. It was so successful that eventually it became The $100,000 Pyramid.

Contestants guessed at the category by hearing examples of things in the category.

Still paying for Bill Clinton

Sex is private.

Everybody lies about sex.

And the classic but far from classy quip from James Carville, "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find."

Democrats were so clever that they thought they got away with it when they protected Bill Clinton in 1998. But they still pay today.

Skier feuds with Trump, injures herself

From Fox News:
Olympic star Lindsey Vonn says she won't represent Trump at 2018 Winter Games
Hmm. She might not represent him or anyone else after injuring her back today.

Due process is a conservative principle

For four weeks, the Washington Establishment has insisted that Judge Roy Moore is a pedophile, and demanded that Alabamans elect Democrat Doug Jones.

They offered as proof a story in the Washington Post.

NYT shows how lightweight the media is

"It seems incredible that only five out of 150 front-page articles that The New York Times ran over the last, most critical months of the election, attempted to compare the candidate’s policies, while only 10 described the policies of either candidate in any detail."
-- Columbia Journalism Review

Media won't admit Moore's second accuser is a liar

Republican Judge Roy Moore is an innocent man who was blind-sided by a well-orchestrated attempt by his opponents to portray him as a pedophile who preyed on teenage girls.

But both stories fell apart. The woman who said he fondled her when she was 14 had major holes in her story including the fact that she said she was living with her mother when she was living with her father at the time.

Today's winner of the Foolitzer Prize

CNN had the story that would blow this town wide open:
Exclusive: Email shows effort to give Trump campaign WikiLeaks documents

Media missed the story of the year

At 4:02 AM on March 4, President Trump gave the American media the story of the year.

They laughed it off and called him crazy.

Nine months later, the story is indisputably true.

Sarcasm? Yeah, right


Trump cleaned up a Clinton corruption from 1996

President Trump's decision to give the people of Utah 1.7 million acres of the the Grand Staircase Escalante is a step toward undoing one of the many pieces of corruption by President Clinton.

Clinton took time off from his re-election campaign on  September 18, 1996, to cut off any mining of  the world's largest deposit of low-sulfur coal -- which allowed a Malaysian company to dominate the international coal market.

Need I say that the company's principal official raised a lot of cash for Clinton?

Trump winning -- Willett ever end?

President Trump set the rookie record for the most appellate judge appointments in a new president's first year in office. Already, he has gotten the Senate to confirm nine, shattering Reagan's record of eight.

With six weeks left until the anniversary of his election, Trump has another nine nominees awaiting Senate approval. That includes Justice Don Willett of Texas, whose tweets have delighted followers for some time.

Trump keeps promise on Jerusalem. CNN foams

President Trump on Wednesday not only recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel but began the process to move our embassy there.

CNN is fit to be tied. How dare he keep another campaign promise!

Manufacturing adds most jobs in 15 years

“Some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back. And when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have, and usually the answer is he doesn’t have an answer.”
--Barack Obama

The Muslim Reformation

The Saudis and other monarchies (including North Korea) send their children to Western schools, where they learn Marxism. And in many ways Saudi Arabia resembles a Marxist state with a lot of welfare and political corruption.

Anti-gun hysteria is the best hysteria

Reaction to the House passing a national concealed carry permit bill was as you would expect it. The loonies on the left managed to show their ignorance of guns, the law, and current events.

Sally K. Demling is my new Best Friend Forever

Sally K. Demling wrote the 93rd Amazon review of "Trump the Press."

Study finds top 1% thrived under Obama. The rest of us not so much

Economist Edward N. Woolf published a paper that shows that under Barack Obama, the wealthiest 1% increased their share of America's wealth to 40%.

The Washington Post blamed President Trump for what Obama did.

Franken takes one for the team

Groping for a way to move Democrats a seat closer to taking the Senate, Al Franken may be taking one for the team by resigning for being an ass.

As I outlined last month, Franken would resign to try to hurt Republican Judge Roy Moore's chances in next week's Senate election in Alabama. A Democratic governor will appoint Franken's successor for a net gain of one seat for Democrats if Doug Jones wins Alabama.

Time magazine ignores 2017

Time magazine overlooked the most consequential and significant first year in office for a president since Reagan to name a hashtag as its Man of the Year.

Ah, the lightness of being mainstream.

Trump is bringing Mueller down

Don't feud with Donald Trump. Too many have and wound up worse for wear. I gave 26 examples. No. 27 may be Robert Mueller, who has wasted the last seven months trying to frame President Trump.

Mueller has nothing -- and is losing his reputation.

Limo libs will "pay" for tax cuts

Republicans devised a way to get rich Democrats to "pay" for the tax cuts -- by making limo liberals pay more in taxes.

The tax cuts strip the tax deductions liberals enjoy.

Boy are they mad.

Today in Fake News

The New York Times won today's Foolitzer Prize.

92% of the deported are criminals

Another liberal talking point -- Trump is deporting people indiscriminately -- just blew up like an Acme Rocket in the hands of Wile E. Coyote.

From Immigration and Customs Enforcement: "92% of all aliens arrested by ICE this year had criminal convictions, pending criminal charges, were an immigration fugitive, or were an illegal reentrant."

Its complaints about hate speech burn BuzzFeed

WARNING: The following post contains language used by a liberal. Reader discretion is advised.

Poor little Katie Notopoulos. A senior editor at BuzzFeed, she wrote:
"The Monday before Thanksgiving, I awoke to my personal nightmare: I had been reported for abuse on Twitter (my favorite thing to look at while I crap), and my account was frozen."
I am unsure why she felt compelled to share her bodily functions like that, but in a world of participant trophies, not being allowed to participate is a fate worse than death.

Under Trump, U.S. reaches its potential

(The following post contains liberal tears. This is not a warning, but a brag.)

Now that the Marxist has left the White House, America is back in business, boys and girls.

Mueller has nothing

Robert Mueller has nothing. We know this because his illegal leaks contain nothing that is in the Russian dossier that he was assigned to investigate.

Thus far, the only person punished by this investigation is Brian Ross of ABC News. Taxpayers have paid $7 million ob ab investigation that so far has only led to getting rid of one lousy journalist for four weeks.

Why the left hates 401-k

On January 26, 2013, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 12,487.02.

Clinton's labor secretary Robert Reich was alarmed.

Reich posted on Facebook the next day:
I don't give investment advice but I have to warn you: Stocks are way over-valued right now. The Dow and S&P are far higher than merited by economic fundamentals -- fueled by small investors who have finally decided it's safe to come back into the stock market. It's the same old story: Big investors -- including the big banks, hedge funds, private equity -- have made a fortune off of the recent bull market. They've lured small investors in. Now, I suspect, they're beginning to sell, while making bets against stocks in the future (short selling) -- which will leave small investors high and dry.
Less than five years later, both indices have doubled. The middle class mocks rich people and loves capitalism.

UPDATE: Credit Trump for Ross suspension

See update below.

ORIGINAL POST: The impossible happened. After years of Brian Ross reporting Fake News, ABC News finally suspended him -- for four weeks without pay.

Credit President Trump for the suspension.

Goldman Sachs Clinton downplays tax cut

When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.

When Goldman Sachs talks, people hear Clinton.

Name That Party

Readers know the game well, and I am sick of it.

But here goes. A former congresswoman received a five-year sentence for stealing money from a charity she set up -- and the Florida Times-Union failed to mention her party in a 968-word piece by Christopher Hong and Steve Patterson.

So gang, let's play Name That Party.

Mansplaining Trump to National Review

Rich Lowry awakened Sunday morning to an epiphany: President Trump is pushing through the conservative agenda by using the powers of the president in a manner that is effective, constitutional, and most rewarding.

This does not please Lowry.

Newsrooms flunk sexual harassment

The main news anchors at three networks -- CBS, NBC and Fox News -- lost their gigs due to their lechery. And yes, the morning shows are the profit centers of the news divisions of broadcast networks. Is this the tip of the iceberg?

Likely.

Newsrooms apparently do not take sexual harassment seriously.

Leave the Trump, take the tax cuts?

Now that they have their tax cuts, Republicans will abandon President Trump, according to T.A. Frank of Vanity Fair.

The case for Hillary outing Matt Lauer

Jill Filipovic of the New York Times penned, "The Men Who Cost Clinton the Election." It was a look at the media mites outed in recent weeks as lecherous old men: Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Mark Halperin, and Glenn Thrush.

Joe Manchin hurts West Virginia

The biggest fake in West Virginia politics in my 36 years as a state resident is Joe Manchin.

He has pretended to care about coal, guns, and West Virginia University. He has let each one down.

And on Friday night/Saturday morning, he showed how little he cares about the people of West Virginia.

Witch hunt: the soap opera

It turns out Robert Mueller's blundering herd of lawyers isn't just trying to screw the American people who elected Donald Trump. The lawyers are trying to screw one another as well.

The Washington Post reported that behind the scenes, these babies are doing the hanky panky.

Trump may have ended Nork's nukes program

On October 10, an earthquake struck North Korea's underground nuclear program, killing 200 workers.

Today, another earthquake struck.

Evidence shows that this may be the result of the Rods from God program -- a tungsten rod fired to Earth from space.

Good news for 2020

U.S. News and World Report had great news for Republicans:
For a couple of hours on a recent Thursday, Sen. Kamala Harris of California became the favorite to win the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination.

The Make America Great Again Tax Cut

With absolutely no shame, Democratic Senator Jon Tester of Montana decried the Make America Great Again Tax Cut (my name for the bill) because it was thick and contained handwritten amendments.

Handwritten!

Amendments!

Why reporters should not tweet

If I owned a news organization, I would ban all employees from social media. I would make tweeting a fire-able offense -- even if someone did it through a fake account.

Ashley Feinberg is the reason why.

Democrat says congressman lacks time in grade to harass women

Headline in Politico:
Freshman Democrat urged to resign after sexual harassment allegations

Trump will not be indicted

Having had their butts handed to them by Donald Trump and the American people last year, the Marxists and the media are going nuts because retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn copped a plea in the Robert Mueller witch hunt.

Calm down, America.

Automation means more jobs

The history of the industrial age shows that automation -- having machines replace handcraft -- makes for better products, raises wages, and increases jobs.

The industrial age also decreased poverty, extended life expectancies, and gave us creature comforts we never imagined having.

Shut up, Obama

Barack Obama today disgraced himself and the office he once held by going overseas and criticizing Our President.

This will come to bite his sycophants in the press and his loathsome Marxist supporters. And not just because feuds with President Trump usually end up worse for the experience.

Obama just set a precedent.

The media is a village of glass houses

The New York Post reported Matt Lauer's lawyers seek a $30 million payout from Comcast (NBC) for firing him.

Hahaha.
