  • A Seat at the Table, and CNN's Embarrassing Presumption

    Illinois Review ^ | November 14, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    As tempers flare in Washington this November, with the dust settling on late-night midterm results and vote fraud occurs in broad daylight… we see an unusual dispute in the news. This kerfuffle is between a major news source – CNN – and the White House. CNN’s reporter, Jim Acosta, refused to shut his mouth when his time was expired, and even shoved an intern out of the way for just doing her job. The White House had it with him, and revoked his press credentials - not CNN’s, just his. The reporter made more of the story than it was,...

    You’ve likely seen him on social media, and now, the famous 11-year-old drag queen is gracing the airwaves of popular daytime television show “Good Morning America.” In yet another indication that cross-dressing and the LGBT lifestyle are beyond normalized in our culture, “Desmond is Amazing,” was a guest on the long-running ABC morning show, where he was surprised by some of America’s most famous drag queens.

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...
  • Mad Maxine Tells Trump to ‘Keep His Mouth Shut’ Over California Fires

    Maxine Waters, who has criticized President Trump and Republicans for their “rhetoric,” has been cranking up her tone since Democrats won the U.S. House of Representatives last week. During an interview on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” the California Democrat claimed the Republican Party fears “strong, black” women like her. She also said she wishes Trump would “keep his mouth shut” about the issues plaguing her home state. Later in the segment, the anti-Trump lawmaker was asked by host Joy Reid about a tweet from Trump. The president took issue with California receiving billions of dollars every year from the federal government...

    Brenda Snipes, idiocy and how to destroy the electoral system Many of us remember the absurdities of the 2000 election. Yes, the one the Democrats refused to accept. That one with pregnant chads, hanging chads, Seances with Ouija Boards to determine the "intentions" of voters and endless recounts. At the time, the Broward Co. Supervisor of Elections was a nice old lady, Jane Carroll, who had led the office for 32 years and who, as she resigned as the umpteenth recount was about to begin, became the last Republican to head that office (and the only Republican member of the...

    Former Democratic official says Brenda Snipes is too incompetent to commit election fraud The New York Times recently reported the following regarding Brenda Snipes, the Supervisor of Elections in Broward County, Florida:“To do fraud, you have to be clever,” said Lori Parrish, the county’s former elected property appraiser and a Democrat who endorsed Dr. Snipes’s opponent in 2016. “I don’t think there’s fraud. There’s incompetence.”I don’t know if Snipes’s actions are due to fraud or incompetence.After last week’s election, Circuit Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips ruled that Snipes had violated Florida’s public records laws by not publicly reporting the number of votes that...

    <p>Now, that's not to say that I think I know what it is. It might be a family of ancient plesiosaurs that survived the dinosaur extinction, or it might be a water serpent of some kind, or it might be some other rare critter that doesn't exist anywhere else (or at least, hasn't been spotted anywhere else). I haven't the foggiest, and I don't care. I'm just sure there's something there - something - or somethings - seen and reported there on occasion, ever since the days of St Columba, a millenium and a half ago.</p>

    Good news! Only 719 days until the next election! Let the campaigning and media “analysis” begin. (Of course, Campaign 2018 isn’t over until the Democrats finish stealing two Senate seats during the after-party.) Stock up on your Botox now: Nancy’s back! Meanwhile, who is the biggest loser of this cycle—”Beto” (and the donors who forked over $75 million) or Jim Acosta? And how should we complete the joke that begins, “Jim Acosta and Beto O’Rourke walk into a bar. . .”

    I am working 2nd shift (1PM to 10 PM local AZ time) so I was running my errands in the late morning. When I spotted the Weinermobile, and the driver exiting, I saw he was going to have his lunch at Culver's, a place that doesn't even sell hot dogs, much less Oscar Meyer hot dogs. For those unfamiliar with Culver's, it is a fast food hamburger/chicken/fish/sandwich/custard joing that is headquartered in Wisconsin. Founf in the midwest, SE, and now SW. It is a couple of notches above McDonald's etc. in quality, presentation and cleanliness. It was also rated...

    Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the “South Park” creators known for their take-no-prisoners mockery of cultural issues from both sides of the sociopolitical aisle — apparently are feeling a little guilty for mocking Al Gore’s climate change evangelism. See, way back in 2006, a “South Park” episode featured the former vice president warning South Park Elementary School students about the “single biggest threat to our planet” — i.e., ManBearPig, a monster representing climate change, NBC News reported. Gore was a month away from releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” when that episode came out — and the network noted that since...

    The ABC is being slammed, yet again. This time for their most recent episode of Q&A, where sexologist Nikki Goldstein suggested socially inept people could benefit from sex bots. “I feel like there are people who really do struggle to have these intimate connections,” Goldstein said. “I’ve interviewed people before that go to brothels, and they feel that the only way they can have this girlfriend experience is to be paying for it. They don’t necessarily want to be there.” “Now when I think of sex robots and where we’re going with A.I. technology, I feel like that’s the perfect...

    When will we stop lowering our flag? I drove into work this morning, and AGAIN the flags are lowered. I see DJT has ordered it again, this time for the victims of the bar shooting. (No, it is NOT for Armistice/Veteran's Day, which means again BTW it will be down at least on Sunday.) Not a week goes by our US flag is not prostrate anymore. WADR, I appreciate the grief over yet another mass murder, but this is NOT what lowering the flag is for. I am sick of seeing them lowered; it symbolizes we are constantly in mourning...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently believes the “electoral system” is unfair because she can’t receive her congressional salary until she’s actually sworn in as a member of Congress. On Thursday, the 29-year-old socialist spoke with The New York Times about her election victory on Tuesday. But rather than discuss her ideas for Congress, Ocasio-Cortez complained about not being able to afford an apartment in Washington, D.C. Given that she will not be sworn in as a member of Congress until January, the Democratic socialist complained about not receiving her congressional salary for another three months. “I have three months without a salary...

    The First Amendment requirement that “Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom . . . of the press” has one obvious objective. It exists to prevent the political homogenization of mass communications. It was well crafted, and it worked. Under that regime, Congress passed laws to expedite the propagation of information by giving preferential postage to newspapers which interchanged information by mailing their newspapers to each other. But in 1844 Samuel Morse demonstrated his famous Baltimore-Washington telegraph, and the Associated Press and other wire services soon followed. This was in principle the same thing as...

    Reason ^ | November 2, 2018 | Zuri Davis
    Everyone not named Franklin D. Roosevelt hates Daylight Saving Time. The constant back and forth is confusing, especially for those who have an early Sunday morning commitment. The Standard Time Act of 1918 gave the federal government power to oversee national time zones. That power was extended with the passage of the Uniform Time Act of 1966, which allows the Department of Transportation (DOT) to set Daylight Saving Time for the entire country. Why DOT? Because "time standards are important for many modes of transportation," or something like that. Despite decades of observance, however, more and more Americans are rebelling...
