Left-wing church politics

Joel Johannesen Are you like me? Did you have a simmering doubt about the, mmm, shall we say “earnestness” of the invitation given to Donald Trump by that Flint, Michigan church, when, after Trump started criticizing Hillary Clinton, the pastor of the church came up on stage and scolded Donald Trump for talking politics? Seemed like […]

Joel Johannesen   Here’s a quick take on three little items today: 1. First up, a poll delivered to me yesterday with an odd third option: Hard to figure why polls are always so unreliable these days, huh? Why not “Both”?  Or “A combination of five different genders”? And why not also ask “Do you even see yourself […]

Newsflash to news media: Democrat Weiner is a Democrat, or (D), or DEM. Anything but ____

Joel Johannesen The most fun today is seeing how the various newspapers covered their Weiners — mostly in the case of the left-wing newspapers. The Democrats’ New York Times division, for example, has several stories on Anthony Weiner (D) today, but they never mention “Democrat” or (D) or DEM or liberal or progressive, as far as […]

How does Clinton fare up north in Canada? Comments on the Globe & Mail story went south.

Joel Johannesen Let me set this up for you: nearly every day, the Canadian liberals’ multi-faceted media division (which includes the mammoth state-owned CBC) reports on the latest Donald Trump news (or more accurately, it seems to me they watch Rachel Maddow on MSNBC then report to Canadians what Maddow said, changing her “about” to “aboat”). Or […]

BRILLIANT take-down of CNN, a CNN reporter, a CNN anchor, and its hideously biased agenda-driven editing

Joel Johannesen I’ll get to the point in a second. But first (and I promise this is related), I read my usual National Review articles this morning and copied this nugget: Conservatism must be about explaining to non-conservatives why they should be conservative not why they can’t be. This is politics 101 going back to Aristotle: […]

CNN’s Bias is “Over The Top”

Joel Johannesen Supposedly, not a CNN opinion piece: This is how CNN introduced their “news report” about Trump achieving the 1,237 delegate votes needed to secure the nomination, on Wednesday May 26, 2016: If you think CNN was using the occasion to ever so delicately imply Donald Trump is “OVER THE TOP” with all his egregiously inaccurate and tendentious wordplay, […]

MSNBC dubs popular majority-supported refugee bill “EXTREME,” of course

Joel Johannesen 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 […]

Hillary rides a Boeing, or Boeing rides a bought politician? Or both.

Joel Johannesen Few things irk me more than fat-cat politicians using their positions, and huge corporations using their cash, working together for each other’s benefit. Nothing about it smells pleasant. A fat-cat politician using her position to get cash used to be called, well, any number of nasty criminal things which would land you and […]

Lose Firefox. But if you must keep it, don’t do web searches with it and they’ll go broke.

Joel Johannesen If you haven’t heard of the backlash against Mozilla, which is the owner of the Firefox browser brand, here are a few links to bring you up to speed: Mozilla CEO & The Intolerant-Left Thought Police Liberals Who Have Forgotten How to be Liberal A Faculty Revolution Against Free Speech Mozilla’s Intolerance OkFascist […]

Debate_over_Katie_Pavlich_Piers_Morgan

Liberal: “Blather!” Conservative: “Science! Facts!”

Joel Johannesen Bang! Loved this Twitter exchange from last night between Townhall.com’s Katie Pavlich, who is indomitable, and the failed CNN host Piers Morgan, rabid and apparently ignorant anti-gun zealot. The back-and-forth actually went on for a while, but this one hits the target: Um, they have dropped. Down by half since 1992. Facts, @piersmorgan […]

Dems and their media division demand GOP list their Obamacare fixes; while Dems have none

Joel Johannesen The Democrats are still hammering (and possible sickle-ing) out their “smart” strategy to deal with the growing Obamacare failure, in time for the 2014 mid-term campaign, but “Fix Obamacare, don’t repeal it!” seems to be the nut. NBC’s Chuck Todd thought it might be fun to ask the head of the Democrats exactly […]
