The Week in Pictures: That Sorry Time of Year Edition

Featured image We could, of course, lead off with some choice observations about the moral preening of Hollywood, except that everyone is tired of Jimmy Kimmel by now. Or the Harvey Weinstein revelations. (Schadenfreude alert. But still a yawn. Big news: Hollywood casting couches still exist! Film at 11! From Weinstein productions!) Or the NFL’s continuing meltdown. Or the usual liberal media ignorance about guns. But no: tis the season for the »

The Week in Pictures: No Kneeling Edition

Featured image If I want kneeling, I head to a liturgical church on Sunday, not a sports stadium. It mattereth not that football-basketball-baseball is the secular American holy trinity: the separation of church and state—or at least the separation of sports and politics—ought to proscribe the sideline moral preening Olympics. Aren’t end zone celebrations offensive enough? Headlines of the week: Tweet of the week: Photo of the week: You think Trump is »

The Week in Pictures: End Times Edition

Featured image I skipped the latest Democratic Party telethon—otherwise known as the Emmy Awards—as  well as any of the nightly sequels that have been slotted in where the late night comedy shows used to be (that’s you I’m talking about Jimmy Kimmel—can Ben Stein please take you back?)—or the MSNBC shows now being shown on ESPN. Meanwhile, is Hillary still out promoting her book? I hope so. I could use some real comic »

The Week in Pictures: Hurricane Hillary Edition

Featured image The hurricane season has several more weeks to run until the oceans cool down, but the boiling ocean that is the Democratic Party will never cool down if the storm system named “Clinton” has its way. Has one person ever wreaked so much destruction on a political party? I hope she stays on the road forever, and keeps hope alive for a 202o campaign. And this is exactly how antitrust »

The Week in Pictures: Epic Hurricane Edition

Featured image So hot Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence says that the line of hurricanes hitting the U.S. is Mother Nature’s way of punishing us for Donald Trump. Ohhhh-kaaaay. Never mind that Houston and Miami went for Hillary. Wouldn’t “Mother” Nature (isn’t it sexist  to assume the gender of Nature???) target West Virginia instead? A real MENSA member Lawrence is, as Hurricane Yoda might say. And when are we going to get Hurricane »

The Week in Pictures: Hurricane Trump Edition

Featured image Oh why not. Hurricane Trump has flooded the nation’s newsrooms so thoroughly that it makes swamp-draining pretty difficult. I’m almost willing to believe that Trump does control the weather and conjures up hurricanes just to goad the left into further beclownings. Headlines of the week (this first one is pure communism): And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Statuesque Edition

Featured image Power Line would like to propose that someone, somewhere, put up a statue of Dan Rather—just so we can enjoy watching it torn down. Because “Dan Rather” is just his stage name. His real name is Robert Lee. And “Rather” does come from Texas, after all, and as we all know before the Left gets done, Texas will be expelled from the Union and all things Texan will be purged »

The Week in Pictures: Collusion Edition

Featured image So, that was quite a week of huge new news about the whole Russia collusion story, no? What’s that? The media spotted a squirrel in Charlottesville? You don’t say! It’s almost as though Steve Bannon, who plays 12-dimensional chess and has the media on a string because he has mastered string theory, thought the whole thing up because he’s bought futures in bronze statute metal recycling. One thing you can »

The Week in Pictures: Googleplex Edition

Featured image “Googleplex” used to mean a 10 followed by 100 zeros, but as of this week it is the new analogue to “perplexed.” It will henceforth be used for liberal faceplants in the following way: “Man you must really be Googleplexed by that!” Meanwhile, although Google’s headquarters is also apparently known as the “Googleplex,” when rendered into numerical notation it will have to be 10-100. Headlines of the week: And finally. . »

The Week in Pictures: White House Daze Edition

Featured image I think I’ve figured out Trump’s secret strategy. This 71-year old energizer bunny of a Tweethead is simply going to wear out the opposition (i.e., the media and senescent Democrats). He won’t need to drain the swamp: it is going to evaporate into its own self-generated white heat. No wonder he has that mischievous grin so often. Now, if only the GOP Congress could figure it out. . . Headlines »

The Day in Pictures: No More Mooching Special Edition

Featured image I was all set this morning to post up my picks for the best tweets of the day, when the news of Scaramucci’s dismissal came across the transom, and upended everything. I am wondering whether Trump is testing to see if he can crash Twitter completely with his daily drama. Still, since he have four more days till the Friday night close for our Week in Pictures gallery, it appears »

The Week in Pictures: Moocher Edition

Featured image Trump is a genius. He must have foreseen that the Senate would fail to repeal Obamacare, and arranged for the Scaramucci Show and the Priebus Putsch to distract us from this massive failure. He’s adding new dimensions to his three-dimensional chess game. And now John Kelly is the new chief of staff. How long till the White House figure out that when Trump said “Call Kelly to fill the job,” »

The Week in Pictures: Groundhog Day Edition

Featured image As I surveyed the cartoons, memes, and photos in the large inventory for this week, I couldn’t help but think—”Isn’t this just like last week? And the week before? Is CNN still beclowning itself? Is Trump still provoking Tweetrages? More Russia fanaticism from everyone? Is Gov. Christie still on that beach?” I’m afraid right now that we may be in this pattern for the next three and a half years. »

Some Pictures Just Can’t Wait Till Saturday Morning

Featured image I’m traveling today, but not to worry: I’ve got the Week in Pictures in hand for tomorrow morning, going up at 6 am (central time) sharp as usual. But sometimes a picture comes along that is so extraordinary that it deserves to be separated from the crowd: I mean seriously: what the hell? Clinton between two Bushes? Does Slick Willie not know how symbolically accurate this photo is, displaying his »

The Week in Pictures: CNN Beatdown Edition

Featured image Some time last week I tweeted out a question of whether the old adage “never get into a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel” is obsolete in the age of pixels, and CNN’s serial face plants, along with the relentless internet mockery of said face plants, would seem to have answered that question firmly in the affirmative. CNN must be thanking its lucky stars that Gov. Christie »

Mid-Week in Pictures: July 4 Edition

Featured image Look at the bright side (so to speak): at least Governor Christie didn’t take off his shirt. That would clear any beach, and might have brought down the plane the snapped the pic of him validating why the government should own as little land as possible. In any case, here’s to the 4th: But let’s remember what we have to celebrate on the beach this summer: And coming next month—more »

The Week in Pictures: Media Meltdown Edition

Featured image Is this the week we’ll look back on for the moment when the mainstream media crossed over into full stark-raving madness? CNN had to fire three reporters and producers for running a genuine fake story, Sarah Palin is making a strong bid to become a minority shareholder of the New York Times (even as its reporters stage symbolic walkouts to protest layoffs), and Salon cemented its spot in the so-called “reality-based »
