GOP Trades Moore Pain for Worse Pain

 

The GOP is spared the pain of dealing with a Senator Moore, but is presented with another: the prospect of a Democrat Senator and the loss of the Senate in another year.  Steve Bannon is blamed for the Alabama debacle, but it really didn’t start with Steve.

Your Daily Reminder That Mueller’s Investigation is Doomed

 

At this point, Robert Mueller could find authentic video of Vladamir Putin whispering sweet communist nothings into the ear of Donald Trump while both were shirtless and putting a pin into a Hillary Clinton voodoo doll, and half of America would believe that Trump was being set up by a malicious, politicized Special Counsel. Mueller’s […]

How to Rebuild a First World Economy

‘Darkest Hour’: What to Read if You Loved the Movie

 

D arkest Hour, Joe Wright’s recent film, vividly describes the closing days of May 1940, when Adolf Hitler’s blitzkrieg swept over western Europe. In Britain, despite overwhelming odds, Winston Churchill convinced his country to fight on. It is an excellent film — both historically accurate and dramatically taut.

Adios Al

 

“Comedian”/Senator Al Franken has announced he will hit the silk after a maudlin, self-serving, and less-than-honest speech on the Senate floor late this morning. (No, Al, this is about you.)

Donald Trump’s Courage: Jerusalem Edition

 

The United States recognizes, officially, that Jerusalem is, what it has been, and that’s Israel’s capital. Finally. Evil thrives in confusion and America’s stance regarding the capital of Israel was confusing.

Annoying to the End — Jeff Flake Publicly Writes Check to Roy Moore’s Challenger

 

This guy. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is being unceremoniously run out of office after one term because he so utterly failed his constituents in my native state of Arizona. That was largely accomplished by morphing from a legitimately conservative representative in the House to an unsavory version of “John McCain Lite” in the Senate. The modus […]

Will Six Times Be the Charm? 

 

U.S. Immigration officials say they will deport Mexican citizen Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the man who was acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges in San Francisco Thursday in the killing of Kate Steinle. That’s the thing to do, I guess. It sure worked like a charm the first five times we sent this stiff home. […]
