Joel Johannesen It’s kind of the same concept I always use to tout western free enterprise and capitalist democracy: all the people get to vote with their dollars and the ones with the most votes win. It’s a kind of polling that really works. Political polling has been wrong, and sometimes massively so, over the […]

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 James Taranto being funny and smart. Hillary Clinton either didn’t remember what she JUST said the other day, or she’s simply dishonest about her true beliefs. I dont thinks she’s beyond redemption, if she tries.
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 […]
Joel Johannesen Much of the shrieking and blather coming from liberals and their media division centers around Trump and what he says about immigration. “Illegal aliens?!” What a racist pig you are! There are not “illegal aliens!” They’re undocumented personages! Tell that to Bill.
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 […]
Joel Johannesen Although I no longer have her, Ann Coulter was the first columnist I ever paid. And the longest standing columnist too. And all thanks to me (yeah right), she’s now one of the best-selling politics authors in America. I’m happy whenever she comes out with a new book. In Trump We Trust: E […]
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 […]
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: […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
