Medium-sized opinion pieces by Bold Colors editor Joel Johannesen

email - 2017-04-07_092432

Alt-right email. Alt-answered.

Mail delivered to me in a fashion at odds with the quaint traditional postal mail methods of yore. And then answered in a similar alternate fashion. Hi Joseph, I think what the “alt-right” folks intended to mean was “an alternative to the traditional, or ‘establishment,’ or commonly-known version of the right,” rather than anything like […]

Michael Bloomberg

Hoist by their own retard

New York Times op-ed headline:  “Climate Progress, With or Without Trump.” So the Trump administration is powerless to stop the huge, fast and unstoppable green envirotrain? And what’s this: Trump can’t retard the movement — the people — or the free market — from acting in their own best interests? Yeah, well, that’s what conservatives have […]

“News” media can’t figure out the news. Even the fake news.

Aside from the problem that most “news” media outlets present hardly any actual news, and instead shove almost entirely left-wing, progressive, liberal, socialist, or downright communist opinion in your face every day (or fake news), my post today exemplifies another big part of the problem with the “news” media. By the way I don’t do this to […]

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow beclowns herself

It takes a special kind of talent to set yourself up for such failure in quite such an inglorious way as the ubersmug far-leftist Rachel Maddow did last night. Gleefully (and the “gleefully” part is half of what it is that makes her so grating) hoping to discredit and delegitimize President Trump by the public revelation […]

Ivanka Trump 250px

Ivanka Trump fashion business booming after Nordstrom ban

I know what you’re thinking, but it is merely a coincidence that ever since our ad for the Ivanka Trump fashion line was put up on our site, her sales skyrocketed. Ivanka Trump clothing line reports record sales Ivanka Trump’s eponymous women’s fashion line is reporting record sales figures despite calls for a boycott and […]

That Dakota Access Pipeline protest? Yeah. What a load of crap. Literally.

If you were waiting for a good fact-based synopsis of that Dakota Access Pipeline protest, now that’s it’s being Trumped, Katie Kieffer writes it today. But it comes with a warning: this ain’t over. “Like the anti-Trump Women’s March, the DAPL protest was hardly organic,” Katie Kieffer writes. Organic? Ironically, nothing the left and far […]

Media botches its job with phony anti-Trump headline

I could do this all day long. This and only this. And I still wouldn’t have time to do them all. But here’s the latest today: Drudge corrects the record — actually corrected it a long time ago. Globe & Mail doesn’t care. They leave their headline in place. @ericContrarian put it succinctly: As did […]

The DNC is *NOT* unhinged, if we understand correctly.

CNN’s Jake Tapper “reported” yesterday that Trump’s press conference was “unhinged.” This is an email to me today from the Democrats, which is obviously very, very important, since it’s “re: the biggest political scandal in American history.”  Presumably it’s even bigger than last week’s “biggest scandal in American history.”  Golly!  Just wait until Ivanka Trump wears an […]

Media reporting: easy to spot the abject dishonesty with comparisons

There’s honest reporting and there’s dishonest reporting. Today, once again, the dishonesty is obvious to anyone who actually knows the facts, like me. Here’s honest reporting from the Wall Street Journal on the appeal before the (very liberal) 9th Circuit Court regarding the Trump administration’s temporary immigration restrictions from seven countries, in which the judges […]

The progressive left demands “civility” and “dignity.” Ohmygod.

The left needs to have a serious talk with itself. Wow. Gotta love the progressive left's demand for "civility" and "dignity." pic.twitter.com/fl1vH7PG2t — Joel Johannesen (@JoelJohannesen) February 3, 2017   By Joel Johannesen Letter to the Editor.

News media sleuths fails to find support for Trump. Here’s some. Lots.

I posted this at a Canadian site, but being about Trump and the media (the anti-trump), it holds up well here too.  I don’t need to tell Global News how to do their job… no wait that’s hilarious. Of course I do. Somebody does. I think we “get” what their opinion is. here’s mine; when you […]

Yeah the scientist/media industrial complex is political

What an amazing coinkydink that just as the Trump administration’s EPA Administrator to be, Scott Pruitt, is to be grilled today by the climate alarmist Senate Democrats, this amazing news also, um, becomes available, at the exact same time, forcing — forcing — the media to place multiple stories about it, in the most prominent […]

Jail for man-buns, peeing in bushes, and assorted other crap for Friday, January 13, 2017

Since it’s Friday, here’s some assorted lighter stuff I found on the internet today: 1. Eureka. The only good use for man-buns has finally been found: jail. Note that when we refer to “man-buns,” we use the term “man” very loosely. 2.  The liberals’ New York Times division continues the (seemingly coordinated amongst all the […]

tweet re FL shooter 2017-01-06_143516 - 300px

F-35s, Peggy Noonan, and another shooting – for Friday Jan 6 2017

1. Here’s a strong rebuke against the F-35 program, which is laid out here as (and certainly appears to me to be) the epitome of Washington’s systemic bloat, bureaucratic stupor, and institutionalized cronyism. Even early supporters of the system like Canada are today struggling to make the final decision over its ultimate purchase, and articles like […]
