Trump is cleaning up journalism

Well, journalists had another stellar week of buying petards from Acme, setting the explosives off, and hoisting themselves high above the ground.

Let's play $100,000 Pyramid

Dick Clark had a game show called The $10,000 Pyramid. It was so successful that eventually it became The $100,000 Pyramid.

Contestants guessed at the category by hearing examples of things in the category.

Still paying for Bill Clinton

Sex is private.

Everybody lies about sex.

And the classic but far from classy quip from James Carville, "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find."

Democrats were so clever that they thought they got away with it when they protected Bill Clinton in 1998. But they still pay today.

Skier feuds with Trump, injures herself

From Fox News:
Olympic star Lindsey Vonn says she won't represent Trump at 2018 Winter Games
Hmm. She might not represent him or anyone else after injuring her back today.

Due process is a conservative principle

For four weeks, the Washington Establishment has insisted that Judge Roy Moore is a pedophile, and demanded that Alabamans elect Democrat Doug Jones.

They offered as proof a story in the Washington Post.

NYT shows how lightweight the media is

"It seems incredible that only five out of 150 front-page articles that The New York Times ran over the last, most critical months of the election, attempted to compare the candidate’s policies, while only 10 described the policies of either candidate in any detail."
-- Columbia Journalism Review

Media won't admit Moore's second accuser is a liar

Republican Judge Roy Moore is an innocent man who was blind-sided by a well-orchestrated attempt by his opponents to portray him as a pedophile who preyed on teenage girls.

But both stories fell apart. The woman who said he fondled her when she was 14 had major holes in her story including the fact that she said she was living with her mother when she was living with her father at the time.

Today's winner of the Foolitzer Prize

CNN had the story that would blow this town wide open:
Exclusive: Email shows effort to give Trump campaign WikiLeaks documents

Media missed the story of the year

At 4:02 AM on March 4, President Trump gave the American media the story of the year.

They laughed it off and called him crazy.

Nine months later, the story is indisputably true.

Sarcasm? Yeah, right


Trump cleaned up a Clinton corruption from 1996

President Trump's decision to give the people of Utah 1.7 million acres of the the Grand Staircase Escalante is a step toward undoing one of the many pieces of corruption by President Clinton.

Clinton took time off from his re-election campaign on  September 18, 1996, to cut off any mining of  the world's largest deposit of low-sulfur coal -- which allowed a Malaysian company to dominate the international coal market.

Need I say that the company's principal official raised a lot of cash for Clinton?

Trump winning -- Willett ever end?

President Trump set the rookie record for the most appellate judge appointments in a new president's first year in office. Already, he has gotten the Senate to confirm nine, shattering Reagan's record of eight.

With six weeks left until the anniversary of his election, Trump has another nine nominees awaiting Senate approval. That includes Justice Don Willett of Texas, whose tweets have delighted followers for some time.

Trump keeps promise on Jerusalem. CNN foams

President Trump on Wednesday not only recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel but began the process to move our embassy there.

CNN is fit to be tied. How dare he keep another campaign promise!

Manufacturing adds most jobs in 15 years

“Some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back. And when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have, and usually the answer is he doesn’t have an answer.”
--Barack Obama

The Muslim Reformation

The Saudis and other monarchies (including North Korea) send their children to Western schools, where they learn Marxism. And in many ways Saudi Arabia resembles a Marxist state with a lot of welfare and political corruption.

Anti-gun hysteria is the best hysteria

Reaction to the House passing a national concealed carry permit bill was as you would expect it. The loonies on the left managed to show their ignorance of guns, the law, and current events.

Sally K. Demling is my new Best Friend Forever

Sally K. Demling wrote the 93rd Amazon review of "Trump the Press."

Study finds top 1% thrived under Obama. The rest of us not so much

Economist Edward N. Woolf published a paper that shows that under Barack Obama, the wealthiest 1% increased their share of America's wealth to 40%.

The Washington Post blamed President Trump for what Obama did.

Franken takes one for the team

Groping for a way to move Democrats a seat closer to taking the Senate, Al Franken may be taking one for the team by resigning for being an ass.

As I outlined last month, Franken would resign to try to hurt Republican Judge Roy Moore's chances in next week's Senate election in Alabama. A Democratic governor will appoint Franken's successor for a net gain of one seat for Democrats if Doug Jones wins Alabama.

Time magazine ignores 2017

Time magazine overlooked the most consequential and significant first year in office for a president since Reagan to name a hashtag as its Man of the Year.

Ah, the lightness of being mainstream.
