Frankly I don’t think James O’Keefe gets nearly the credit he deserves. Jim Treacher this morning: Via Project Veritas: Cary Poarch, Who Works at CNN’s Washington DC Bureau, Says: “I Decided to Wear a Hidden Camera…to Expose the Bias” Records Zucker’s 9AM Daily Rundown Calls Zucker Emphatically States Fox News is “Beyond Destructive for America” […]

Hmmm. This poll shows up with Fox News’ name on it… and shortly after, Sheppard Smith is gone. Most Americans who support Trump found the Fox News poll to be unbelievable. As it turns out, the poll is not to be believed. What most Fox News supporters don’t know, is that the poll was conducted […]

That Shepard Smith wasn’t removed from his Fox news posting two years ago, much less within the last month, is an indication of the kind of patience the management at Fox had with the little twerp. His self-aggrandizing exit was peppered with laughable lines like: ““Even in our currently polarized nation, it’s my hope that […]

Attention Jim Acosta: Let’s face it, Jimbo, a vice president’s job is to make the president look good. That’s his sole function. Obama being as bad a president as he was needed somebody who was uniquely qualified. Quid pro quo Joe was just that man. That is all.

Over at PJM, Charlie Martin observes: It seems to me — and this is just a plausible inference, I’m not asserting it’s the truth — it seems to me that the only people who would be “visibly shaken” by that would be someone who already has guilty knowledge of Crowdstrike, Burisma, or both. Now, look […]

I’m going to say this right up front: Hong Kong is territory that China has invaded. Similarly, China invaded Taiwan. They are not a part of China. China is deluding itself… And trying to force that delusion on everybody else in the world… Particularly, anybody who does business in China… A prominent example would be […]

California speeds downhill… It’s come to this: Nearly 800,000 Pacific Gas and Electric customers are preparing for their power to be intentionally cut for what could be the largest deliberate power shut-off in California’s history. A Red Flag Warning is being issued over the next few days with strong winds expected to make the risk […]

From that bastion of right-wing philosophy, Politico: Bernie Sanders has been sidelined for nearly a week — after failing for almost three days to disclose that he had a heart attack. It’s unclear when the 78-year-old senator will return to the stump. His campaign has yet to divulge the severity of his heart attack. And […]

So, the Trump Administration has decided that a prerequisite for obtaining a visa to enter the country is purchasing health insurance. This of course puts us in the strange situation of watching the very same people who created the individual Healthcare mandate, protesting what amounts to an individual Healthcare mandate on people wanting visas. Personally […]

Kyle Bennett, via Zuckerbook: “Socialism is the flat earth of economics.” Indeed so, and never in the history of economics has that statement of Kyle’s been more clear, I think, than the last few years, as well as the Reagan years. In both situations, the misbegotten idea that the economy could be best represented by […]

A year ago, I posted this graphic incidental to the antics of the Democrats over the nomination of now Justice Brett Kavanaugh: Forgive me, but I feel precisely the same way about whistleblowers. Funny how so few have noticed the parallel.

I’ve been saying this for years but it appears at long last that others have started to figure this stuff out: In 2018, according to Table R-1, American consumer units spent an average of $9,031.93 on federal income taxes; $5,023.73 on Social Security taxes (which the table calls “deductions”); $2,284.62 on state and local income […]

Matt Margolis says, in part; On Wednesday, the New York Times published the bombshell report that Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, “learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint.” It was widely believed that the whistleblower […]
