Feel Good Story of the Day

Featured image Back in 1970, Newsweek reported about Governor Ronald Reagan: “People who come up against him think he’s a dumb movie actor, and they wind up in pieces.” Funny how that seems to keep happening to Trump’s opponents, too. First, Elizabeth Warren self-immolates. Now it’s Michael Avenatti’s turn: Judge Orders Lawyer To Pay $4.85 Million As Eviction Verdict Delivered In what many people are referring to as righteous judgement, ‘Porn’ Lawyer Michael Avenatti »

Standing Up To the Mob

Featured image Maxine Waters and other Democratic Party leaders have urged members of their party to harass Republicans when they go out in public, and as far as I know, not a single prominent Democrat has denounced such mob tactics [*See update below]. So the number of such incidents has multiplied rapidly. What I have never understood is why the mob can get away with such disgraceful conduct. In nearly any setting, »

Jobs Not Mobs

Featured image “Jobs not mobs” has become a GOP mantra in this year’s elections. It is, I think, an excellent theme. Minnesota’s Freedom Club, of which I am a member, is the state’s most effective political organization. It has produced a series of television ads attacking Democratic candidates Tim Walz and Keith Ellison for their anti-safety policies, i.e., sanctuary state and, in Ellison’s case, endorsement of cop killers. Now the Freedom Club »

Another Day, More Death Threats

Featured image A New York man has been arrested for threatening to murder two Republican senators: A 74-year-old New York man was arrested Friday for violently threatening two U.S. senators over their support of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Beginning Sept. 27, Ronald DeRisi left more than 10 threatening voicemails for two different lawmakers—who were not named— according to the official complaint released by prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for »

Don’t Confuse the Mafia With Democrats!

Featured image The Babylon Bee bills itself as a Christian satire site. It is quite funny, and this tweet made me laugh out loud: Mafia Requests To No Longer Be Called 'The Mob' Because Of Negative Association With Political Activists — The Babylon Bee (@TheBabylonBee) October 17, 2018 Heh. The Mafia has its faults, but let’s not confuse it with the Democratic Party! »

The Democrats’ Leftward March

Featured image Years ago, back in the early 1980s, I had a conservative friend in England who liked to say, “The great thing about America is that you either vote Tory or you vote Tory,” meaning that the Carter-Mondale Democratic Party of that time wasn’t very far to the left at all. I tried to explain why American conservatives didn’t see it that way, but you have to understand that from his »

The Democrats Must Be Defeated

Featured image The Democratic Party has turned into a crazed, howling mob. It is degrading our public life to a degree that has not been seen since they seceded in 1861. That is an observation we could make every day; for now, let’s go with this story: “Blackburn backlash shocks Mt. Juliet restaurant owner.” Courtney’s Restaurant and Catering owner Tom Courtney said he’s experienced a strong social media backlash because he rented »

Democratic Mobs, Then and Now

Featured image News item: Two GOP candidates assaulted in Minnesota. News item: Antifa mob overruns Portland, and Democratic mayor stands aside. (And to think, I had dinner once with Ted Wheeler a few years ago, before he was elected mayor of Portland, and thought he was a sensible human being. Another case of misleading first impressions I guess.) News item: Ricin sent to Sen. Susan Collins. News item: Democrat assaults, critically injures »

Political Violence Comes to Minnesota

Featured image The good news first: no one has yet been stabbed, shot or guillotined. Although the idea has been raised: A Minnesota DFL staffer has been suspended from his job after suggesting in a social media post that Republicans face beheading after the Nov. 6 election. In response to a Facebook post that listed Nov. 6 as the day to “take back your country,” DFL deputy communications director William Davis wrote »

Sinema/Ellison 2020

Featured image Kyrsten Sinema and Keith Ellison have a lot in common. They are both prominent Democrats. Sinema represents Arizona in Congress; Ellison represents Minnesota and holds down another job as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Sinema now seeks to represent Arizona in the Senate; Ellison now seeks to become Minnesota attorney general. And both have long careers reflecting radical views that they now mask. They lie boldly about their »

Godless Democrats?

Featured image It is disputed whether delegates to the Democratic National Convention in 2012 booed a proposed resolution acknowledging God, but regular church attendance is nowadays one of the best predictors of partisan voting patterns (regular churchgoers vote heavily GOP), and needless to say environmentalism–especially the Calvinist-tinged kind dear to Al Gore–is the only religion that generates any enthusiasm among Democrats. Then there’s this: ‘I Stand For The Flag, I Kneel At »

Bobby’s big bucks

Featured image We last checked in on incumbent Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s race against Bobby O’Rourke in “Query the Kavanaugh effect (2).” The most recent poll at that time showed Cruz with a 9-point lead (54-45). Since that post a New York Times/Siena poll of likely voters surveyed the electorate during the period October 8-11, entirely in the aftermath of the Kavanaugh confirmation. It shows Cruz with an 8-point lead (51-43), within »

McConnell’s price

Featured image With Election Day fast approaching and vulnerable Senate Democrats eager to leave town, Majority Leader McConnell had the Democrats right where he wanted them — pining so badly to get out of Washington that they would finally agree to confirm a host of Trump administration nominees they have long been obstructing. On Thursday, the deal was reached. Democrats agreed to unanimous consent on 15 judicial and 21 executive branch nominees. »

The AP Defends the Democrats’ Mobs

Featured image Voters, repelled by the mob action unleashed by leaders of the Democratic Party, are increasingly telling pollsters they intend to vote Republican. The Associated Press, alarmed, tries to help Democrats to stem the tide. The AP’s headline: “GOP decries Dems’ ‘mob rule,’ flipping the script.” Whose script? The AP’s, of course! President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic “mob rule” to amp up GOP voters for next »

The left: An unhinged mob

Featured image Steve Scalise, we might say, has the moral authority to observe: “When Eric Holder, other Dems call for violence, that’s a direct threat to our democracy.” On a related note, Andy Ngo notes that “A leftist mob ‘polices’ Portland.” You probably missed it in the news presented by the mainstream media. You probably missed it because it wasn’t there. The Republican National Committee has just released the timely video it »

Crazy Days [Updated]

Featured image As the election approaches, it seems that everything is spinning out of control. Here is a partial selection from the last day or two. It came out that pink tutu-clad leftist Kyrsten Sinema, the Democrats’ nominee for the Senate from Arizona, once urged Texans to “stop your state from becoming Arizona” because Arizonans are “crazy.” BREAKING: LEAKED VIDEO: in a 2011 speech in TX, Democratic Senate candidate @kyrstensinema mocks Arizonans »

Democrats: The Constitution Is Unconstitutional!

Featured image A major theme on the Left these days is that any institution with elements other than pure, one-man-one-vote democracy is illegitimate. That would include, among others, the Electoral College and the Senate. This tweet by soon-to-be-Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one example among many: It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic. »
