I’m letting Debby Witt at The Corner do my  Halloween work  for me this year.   She never disappoints,  does she?

Public thinks media want Clinton win…

leave a comment »

The American people proved their naivete by electing His Oneness twice,   but two national polls show we have smartened up enough to realize the media is almost entirely pro-Clinton.   A majority of Clinton supporters see  it as well.

The one benefit I see coming from this wretched political season is that very few in the media will any longer be charged with committing journalism.

I saw hell…

leave a comment »

That’s what  the mayor  of one of the Italian towns hit by earthquakes said,  and that’s probably a fair description of the  destruction.   This is the same  region  which suffered quakes in August,  and some of the villages basically no  longer exist.   Many of this area’s ancient buildings had survived the August quakes,  but  not this  one.   For some of these picturesque  spots,  the future may indeed  be finished.

Put the people of central Italy in your prayers,  and let us hope that there is much less loss of life this time than in August.

UPDATE:  So far there is no reported loss of life.   Drones have taken to the skies  to record  the incredible damage.

Little girl and old man…

No,  this has nothing to do with Bill Clinton or Anthony Weiner.   It’s about  what happens  to a sad old widower when a four-year-old child notices him in a grocery store and they strike up a friendship.

Hillary’s gods…

leave a comment »

Michael Goodwin of the New York Post has the  best opening  line of the month with regard to the FBI re-opening the investigation into Queen Hillary’s emails:  “It looks as if the gods finally got sick of her.”

Of course,  FBI Director James  Comey’s letter  suggests a number of things to us,  among them that the first FBI investigation  was incomplete  at best.   It also raises the specter that Huma Abedin was either misleading  in her testimony about her email accounts,  or outright perjured  herself.

There are at least three  competing theories  as to why Comey took this step.   All seem plausible to me.   The report  that DOJ disapproved of Comey’s decision and  his letter  makes it all the more interesting.

The media is already scrambling  to minimize  the event.   A Democratic group has filed  a complaint  against the FBI.   There is already a rich irony in Hillary complaining about the investigation being reopened  —   she hopes we don’t  remember this.

One must admit there would be a certain sort of poetic justice in having Abedin’s rotter of a husband be the cause  of her boss’s downfall.   Perhaps some of Mark Steyn’s questions will  now be answered.

Disputing media polling…

leave a comment »

If you believe the media polling,   Queen Hillary is so far ahead that she’ll win in a landslide.    Or at least she’s so comfortably ahead that she’d now devoting her efforts to helping down-ballot Democrats.   Or that some other mysterious force is at work to ensure that the next president will be a fat old woman in poor health and would be the most corrupt person ever to occupy that space.

No matter what you believe,  the truth is that no one really knows.   This is not a normal election.   We the People are angry,  as we should be after nearly eight years of His Oneness,  not to mention the prospect of Queen Hillary finishing off what is left of our nation.

Seth Keshel does an admirable job of  laying it  all out for you.   Please read it,  then pass it along.   Our future depends on it.

New York manners…

leave a comment »

This is how  rich New Yorkers  are,  and they become worse when they achieve political power.   Mayor Bill De Blasio thought nothing of shutting down a Little League baseball game for more than an hour so he could land his helicopter on the field,  at least until the reason for the delay started becoming public knowledge.

Liberals and progressives believe it is their right to do whatever they can get away with.   They are entitled,  because they are somehow special and deserve more than we little people do.   You have only to look to the behavior of His Oneness in the White House to imagine how dangerous Queen Hillary would be.

Oldest eateries…

leave a comment »

Here’s  a list  of the oldest restaurant in every state.    My general theory is that if a place has been in business for a century,  it probably serves good food,  so I doubt you can go wrong with any of them.   I have eaten at only two of them myself,  but what an delicious addition to my bucket list!   Who wouldn’t’ enjoy a meal at a place which still has bullet holes in the ceiling from the Wild West days?

Tom Hayden, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

David Horowitz was a friend of Tom Hayden’s and knew him well,  writing once:   “Tom was indeed an angry man,  who seemed in perpetual search of enemies.”

I find that to be true of so many on the Left,  and it seems that so many of them seek to take revenge on the innocent instead of those they have actual reason to be angry with.    I knew who Hayden was before he became Jane Fonda’s husband,  having had some unpleasant run-ins with his Students for a Democratic Society members.

I won’t miss him in the slightest,  but it is good that he can no longer cause more damage to society.

UPDATE:   This piece,  somewhat harshly,  but absolutely truthfully,  fleshes out Hayden’s life.
