Climate change and the environment are the only things in which Americans favor the Democrats in the most recent Pew Research poll.
And most of the rest of their substantial poll also bodes very poorly for Democrats.
So in the coming weeks expect some big broadcast specials and multi-week in-depth analyses on all the mainstream media about, oh I don’t know, say climate change and the environment.
It’s shocking how much media attention has focussed on …. no let me start again. It’s totally predictable and boring how the media is wall-to-wall reporting on the supposedly universal outrage over Donald Trump’s Muslim moratorium blather. Most of the “news” “reporting” has been done sneeringly, from way, way up upon a very high horse, in the most smug, supercilious, patronizing, condescending, haughty, disdainful, lordly, lofty, airy, pretentious way possible.
It’s now even worse than their “news” “reporting” about Sarah Palin, back in those comparatively halcyon days. I’m inclined to take Trump’s side just for that reason alone.
Say what you want (and if you’re like most people, it’s a lot, and it’s haughty) about Donald Trump and his suggestion for a moratorium on Muslims crossing America’s borders. In at least one poll, people across America – not just Republicans – agree with him more than they do his ever so morally outraged critics.
Despite an international uproar and condemnation by President Obama and nearly all of those running for the presidency, Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims coming to the United States has the support of a sizable majority of Republicans – and a plurality of all voters. …
… Among all voters, 46% favor a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, while 40% are opposed. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) …
Other polls don’t show that. But several polls show at least disfavor towards Muslims in America. So it may be more about semantics and being PC than actual disagreement.
Meanwhile, here is the latest from RealClearPolitics.com on the current actual situation:
Real Clear Politics Averages
Obama Job Approval: Approve – 44.1 percent//Disapprove – 51.4 percent
Directions of Country: Right Direction – 27.9 percent//Wrong Track – 64.0 percent
The mainstream news media never reports on that existential problem in America, even sheepishly. Because since they elected him, they’re not feeling quite so haughty and smug now. Luckily for them they have found something else to wag their finger at and feel smug about.
Sure, but then this also makes sense: And if women can serve as combat Marines, there is no longer any reason for gender-segregated school sports teams. https://t.co/0pxmZulQgs — David Burge (@iowahawkblog) December 3, 2015
Despite Barack Obama threatening to veto it, 47 of Obama’s 188 fellow Democrats voted to support the refugee bill yesterday, no doubt because their constituents supported it. Along with the Republican congressmen, that means representatives of the vast majority of America supported it. That literally means the bill reflects a mainstream sentiment, and suggests the measures were not […]
The media’a hypocrisy is just as alive and well down south. If Hillary Clinton were a Republican, the media would be questioning her incessantly about this, for weeks on end, demanding she apologize for laughing it off and for not publicly denigrating the remark and the person – a man – who said it. Voter […]
After years of research and extensive field testing, the Okanagan’s own GMO apple is going to the big leagues. Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are routinely attacked by urban organic activists in spite of the fact that not a single ailment has ever been linked to this technology. And now, as a testament to the baselessness of such attacks, […]
We must remember that Democrats are not like normal people. In their world, Barack Obama is a brilliant, inspiring speaker and Joe Biden should be trusted with scissors. It is within this context that someone like Hillary Clinton, a canker sore of a public figure, is considered a natural, even inevitable, leader. Notwithstanding Mrs. Clinton’s […]
If CNN is going to chyron "Muslim Hero," why not "Muslim Terrorists?" — John Nolte (@NolteNC) January 12, 2015
You know how you can tell when the liberal media is so liberal they don’t even know how liberal they are? When liberal news anchors at a major national news network report with utter contempt for a politician, in a manner in which they believe everyone in the room agrees with them. Enter CNN’s Carol […]
Today in scientific proof that even the alarmists don’t believe in their own “man-made global warming” and specifically its disastrously rising sea level theories, a headline in the Washington Post: This new mapping technology will show whether global warming could drown your town “Drown your town!” Wow! Sadly for the global warming alarmists and professional freak-out artists, this […]
There is a double indignity to being on the receiving end of a bad lie. The insult of being served with obvious dishonesty is compounded by the liar’s presumption that you are stupid enough to swallow it. Claims by the Internal Revenue Service that they’ve “lost” emails from Lois Lerner and a half-dozen other employees […]
The IRS hearings today are revealing a lot more about the IRS, Democrats, and big government, than the IRS, Democrats, and big government might have wanted. IRS hearings today: The IRS has “model T”-era computers, according to the Commissioner, Mr. Koskinen. Which is a claim he made as a way to defend the IRS “losing” […]
The sometimes-snarky headlines that I have been generating here (and for Canadians, at ProudToBeCanadian.ca) for the past month or so seem to be going over pretty well, so I’ve moved them to a new site, NewsQuips.com: (and NewsQuips.ca for Canadian headlines). Also, I’ve decided to start accepting opinion columns from the public for publication at this […]
Obama’s VA Secretary Shinseki resigns; Obama’s spokesmodel Jay Carney resigns. Shinseki resigns – Obama claims that he’s accepting Shinseki’s resignation “because he would be a distraction.” (THAT’s why?) – Claims the problem “predates his presidency” (AKA blame Bush). Thinks that excuses him from responsibility, after campaigning in 2008 on being the guy who could fix […]
Seattle, now led by far-leftists, had a plan to raise the minimum wage to $15. Now they’ve delayed it. Council member Kshama Sawant’s Socialist Alternative Party (among their policies: “Take into public ownership the top 500 corporations and banks that dominate the U.S. economy… For a socialist United States and a socialist world.”) got the […]
