Featured image Ammo Grrrll follows up on her endorsement of President Trump for reelection last week with DON’T LET ALINSKY WIN!!! She writes: After today, there is but one Friday left until the election. It has always astonished and amused me when, mere days before every presidential election, some network assembles a small but diverse group of “Undecided” voters. Now, usually, there is a STARK contrast between the candidates. Yet 48 hours »

I’m with her

Featured image Washington Examiner reporter Susan Ferrechio had a throwdown with CNN’s Brian Stelter over the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s emails. The throwdown occurred on this episode of BBC’s Media Show. Ferrechio contrasted the media’s avoidance of the saga of Hunter Biden with its hot embrace of the Russia hoax foisted on the Trump campaign and presidency. It’s not possible to do justice to the disgrace of CNN, but the audio clip »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is done agonizing over the choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. She endorses President Trump for reelection in THE STRANGEST COUP EVER. She writes: I am not talking about the grotesque Hillary/Obama/Comey/Brennan coup to strangle the nascent Trump presidency at birth, a little practice coup for which nobody will ever do a day of time. No, I am talking about the obvious all-out war of our worthless »

Holy Toledo

Featured image I’m not sure Joe Biden’s drive-in rally in Toledo went off entirely as planned. According to Ebony Bowden’s New York Post report, “Biden delivered a speech in front of around 30 socially-distanced cars of supporters[.]” However, the Biden supporters in attendance appear to have been outnumbered by the Trump supporters expressing their vocal support for the president off in the distance (video below). I’m filing this under Laughter Is the »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll calls out a few TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE PEOPLE. She writes: My husband, the famous novelist Max Cossack, has also written several excellent plays and musicals which were produced under his given name, Joseph D. Vass. Thus, it has been our privilege to know some fine stage actors. One actor/director from St. Paul, is, in fact, a dear personal friend. All but a tiny handful of these actors lean left, »

Buster Keaton at 125

Featured image Turner Classic Movies observed the 125th anniversary of the birth of Buster Keaton yesterday by replaying the terrific 2018 Peter Bogdanovich documentary The Great Buster: A Celebration (trailer below), followed by Sherlock, Jr. (1924), The General (1927), Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928), and the lesser known Seven Chances (1928). Coincidentally, I think, one of the automobile companies broadcast an advertisement yesterday afternoon incorporating classic silent film stunts, including one or two »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll sets forth SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY AVERAGE GEEZERS. She writes: You may have heard a motivational talk on the many fine habits of highly-successful people. This will not be that talk. It’s more like a memo to myself. When you have lived through 73 long years, and are turning the odometer over to 74 this week, the wise geezer realizes that it is probably too late to be »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a request: PLAY IT AGAIN, NAN! She writes: Some people cannot learn. The people I am talking about are mostly in their 60’s and 70’s and maybe it’s just too late to absorb any new information. Since I am in that demographic, I don’t like to think that’s true. But, sometimes I get a real hard lesson and learn THAT way. The people I’m talking about are »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll invents a new hashtag and commences a new campaign: #YEAH, ME NEITHER. She writes: We already have the hashtag campaign #MeToo that encourages women everywhere to remember that time when, God forbid, a man told them they looked nice, or a co-worker put a hand on their shoulder without a notarized permission slip, or when a classmate had consensual sex with them but then failed to return their »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is a A WOMAN EXPERIENCING FATIGUE. She writes: The utterly pointless destruction of the country continues apace, but at least in the modern era physical destruction of a civilization usually begins with the torture of the language. George Orwell certainly called that shot decades ago. That is why we have such awkward constructs as “Latinx,” and “people of color.” Face it, no human beings are actually Red, Yellow »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll continues to assert that IT AIN’T NECESSARILY SO – PART TWO. She writes: Since it is harmful to our mental health to be constantly marinated in horrific, divisive politics every minute of every day, a few weeks ago, I started a more light-hearted series debunking various things we repeat all the time that “ain’t necessarily so.” We explored “listening to your body” and I asserted that my “body” »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll resists TRANSGENDER TYRANNY, a Gateway Drug to Total Tyranny. She writes: As a short, round woman, I was convinced that whatever life problems I had would definitely not be solved by becoming a short, round man, even with the silly little beard all woman to man transgenders affect. Jeez! Like I need somewhere ELSE to shave. So, yeah, I would make just a terrible transition to a pretend »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll finds that we have come FULL CIRCLE. She writes: When I was a teenager living in northern Minnesota, every single person in our small town was white. The dramatic civil rights struggle was unfolding “down South” and virtually everyone I knew was sympathetic to it. Pictures of ugly bullies dragging black people away from lunch counters or young black students trying to go to school had a powerful »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a brief preface to AN OPEN LETTER TO ELLEN DEGENERES Or, Why Do You Think They Call It “Work”? She writes: “I realize from past discussions that not every regular commenter on this column thinks that Ellen is funny. Just because I am a professional who KNOWS funny when she sees it does not mean that I can force anyone to agree that she is. Humor is »

Joltin’ Joe’s memory

Featured image Daniel Pipes calls this “a little harmless fun at Joe Biden’s expense.” I call it a valuable contribution to the Biden campaign. I’m filing it under Laughter Is the Best Medicine. A little harmless fun at @JoeBiden's expense. pic.twitter.com/7UKYiiANe9 — Daniel Pipes دانيال بايبس (@DanielPipes) August 11, 2020 Maybe we should save the medicine to take after reading Bernard Goldberg’s “Why I Want Biden to Lose More than I Want »

Alinsky rules applied

Featured image President Trump conducted an impromptu press conference yesterday at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Those at the club were invited to watch the president meet the press. The American Thinker’s Andrea Widburg notes that one of the reporters opened, not with a question, but with an accusation: “You said that the pandemic is disappearing, but we lost 6,000 Americans this week, and just in this room, you have »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll notes THINGS THAT NEVER GET OLD IN LEFTY-LOONY WORLD (Another Ongoing Series). She writes: Calling Every Republican President Hitler Linda Ronstadt, once a pop singer of some talent, opined that President Trump was not only Hitler, but that it’s the Mexicans who are the “new Jews.” No matter how many “new” Jews appear on the scene, Ye Boring Olde Jews seem never to drop off the bottom of »
