Stormy fizzles…

leave a comment »

As I watched this  boring episode  of 60 Minutes,  I was reminded of Geraldo Rivera’s embarrassing discovery of Al Capone’s vault — lots of dust and dirt,  nothing of substance.   And then I got curious.   Didn’t Stormy Daniels signa couple of statements saying she had not had any dealings with Trump?  When do we believe her?   Then?  Now?  How about never?  Why were her pupils dilated?

Now I’m just bored and somewhat amused that the  same media  who told us repeatedly that Lewinsky,  Juanita Broaddrick ,  and Jones were irrelevant to Bill Clinton now scream that a prostitute with scant credibility must be regarded as a paragon of truth so we must acknowledge the utter wickedness of Donald J. Trump.  Has Trump committed adultery?  Yeah,  but it only counts because he’s a Republican.  What about JFK,  LBJ and Bill Clinton,  who were all horndogs of the first water?   Do I wish Trump behaved better?     Of course,  but he is mostly trying to keep his campaign promises.  I’d be happier if the squishes who swing on the Congressional teat would develop a bit of backbone and help.

But now we see what Stormy  is really  after…

Mine’s bigger than yours…

You ain’t gonna see this touted in the New York Times or Washington Post,  folks.   At this point in their respective presidencies,  Pres. Trump has a  higher approval  rating than did Pres. Obama,  by four points.

Just imagine what Trump’s rating would be if he were dealing with an honest media and hadn’t been under continuous attack by Democrats and at least three agencies of the federal government for over two years.

Zinke targeted again…

leave a comment »

This time by the ultra-Left Huffington Post,  which wadded its panties up its nether regions because the Interior Secretary  didn’t disclose ownership of stock shares worth less than a grand,  which is the level at which one must report them.   I suspect a hidden outrage is that Proof Research sells firearms and advanced weapons material  —  oh,  the horror!  Unfortunately,  HuffPo is far from the only media outlet which obfuscates,  misleads and outright lies.   One can not swallow enough grains of salt to take anything it produces at face value, and that goes for a huge swath of the media these days,  which appears to have forgotten that it received special protections because it was expected to perform special services for the public.

I admire the military,  especially the elite units,  including the SEALs,  which Mr. Zinke formerly served with.   You don’t earn your way into such a class of warriors without being a tough SOB,  so I’m not the least surprised that he is methodically examining everything within Interior’s purview and slashing regulations and proposing changes which The Swamp and the Deep State seriously object to.   He is a man for whom the only status quo is completing the mission,  an attitude almost totally foreign amongst the bureaucratic stakeholders.

Melania blamed for tree removal…

leave a comment »

The historic Jackson magnolia tree at the White house has been in pitiful shape for decades.   Held upright by cabling rather than its own strength,  it has long been an accident waiting to happen, so the First Lady has prudently decided to  have it cut  down,  and the wood preserved.

Most of the media is  reporting in  such a fashion as to make it seem Melania Trump is having the tree removed without any reason.  Since most of the media live in places where they either manage a few flowerpots or have gardeners, I can’t imagine why anyone would take their word for arborist matters.

Tax cuts are bad!

leave a comment »

The nearly universally progressive media wants to  convince you  that tax cuts are bad,  and that you will be bitterly unhappy if you get them.   No one,  regardless of how charming they were,  has ever been able to convince me that being able to keep more of my own money is a bad thing which I could not possibly enjoy.   I daresay most of my readers have similar thoughts,  but the wider world may not recognize the ploys used to dissuade them from thinking clearly about tax reform.

Just a picture…

leave a comment »

So why did our lying media hide it from you?  Because MSM has no intention of allowing a sweet and   humanizing photo  of Pres. Trump to cross your consciousness.   Besides, the weeping gentleman with trump is a military veteran —  no need to treat him as if he is in any way remarkable.

O’Keefe tease…

leave a comment »

I have no idea what investigative film-maker O’Keefe has up his sleeve, but his saying that media people  will be fired  is enough to make my ears stay pricked.
