    I can’t believe I missed Benjamin Franklin’s birthday yesterday [ed. it’s been brought to my attention that I’m actually one day early – so unlike me] but it’s not too late to honor one of the country’s most influential founding fathers. The man who once wrote “If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worthy of reading or do things worth the writing.” in his own life did both. As CDN notes though this truly Renaissance man has never been adequately recognized for his remarkable contributions to this great country. He...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, when it comes to paying bribes, El Chapo don’t mess around. – A witness in the trial of El Chapo told the judge and jury that the infamous (Ah, Dusty! In-famous is when you’re more than famous! This guy El [Chapo] is not just famous, he’s IN-famous!” – Ned Neiderlander, from Three Amigos) drug lord paid former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto a bribe of …wait for it…$100 MILLION in 2012. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. The witness, a fellow named Alex Cifuentes, who worked at the time...

    Entrepreneur, Ivy-Leaguer, New Yorker, and prospective 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang hopes to win his way into the White House on a promise of a $1,000 per month “freedom dividend” to every American family. “Critics will say my idea is impractical,” Yang predicted. “But I’ve just initiated a pilot test of the concept with the Fassi family of Goffstown, New Hampshire. I gave them their first check on New Year’s Eve. The checks will continue for the entire year. I predict that their lives will be enriched and their anxieties relieved. If elected president in 2020 I will extend...

    Now that has Joey has told top democrats he’s willing to throw his hat into the 2020 ring I think they’re going to need a bigger ring.My, that’s a big ring of bologna!It seems that every Democrat in America who’s not a convicted felon is considering a run for the Presidency. And that’s not even counting Hillary. According to The Hill: Since Donald Trump’s election to the White House, Democrats have been anxious to pinpoint potential candidates up to the challenge of taking on the combative New York real estate mogul in 2020. Media speculation has run from the usual...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) What ever happened to Matt Drudge? – The blaring, all caps, bold-faced headlines atop the Drudge Report landing page this morning read “SHUTDOWN TURNS NIGHTMARE” and “GOVT PARALYZED”. My goodness, you mean to say that, here on Day 26 of the longest partial federal government fake “shutdown” ever, we’re finally starting to see major detrimental impacts to not just the government itself, but also to the public at large? That’s obviously what Matt Drudge wants you to believe. The trouble is, when you click on those headlines to read the stories behind...

    In an effort to bolster his credentials for a possible 2020 run for the Democratic presidential nomination, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he won't sign the state's budget until the legislature passes a law making it legal for abortions to be performed by any person for any reason and at any time—right up until moments before birth. The current state statute requires that abortions be performed by licensed physicians before the 24th week of pregnancy. Cuomo called any restrictions "completely unacceptable. The crushing burden of an unwanted child should never be forced on a woman. The toll on her...

    I’ve lost track: what day of the ‘Trump Shutdown’ are we in now? Everyone losses track after the record has been broken. Yes, people are being inconvenienced. Yes, people have been furloughed and are not getting their paychecks (yet). My brother-in-law is among them. Yes, it’s tough. Things are tough all over. The Guardian writes a sympathetic article titled ‘It's ruining people's lives”: federal workers count cost of shutdown. White-collar workers face blue-collar blues.  Randy Erwin, president of the National Federation of Federal Employees, said, “This shutdown isn’t funny anymore. Right now, it’s ruining people’s lives.” Do you know what else is...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) You know they’re in trouble when they start recycling fake news stories. – The fake editors at the Wall Street Journal have become so desperate they now feel the need to recycle Trump outrage stories in their unending efforts to keep the Democrat rabble roused. Over the weekend the Journal recycled the story from a year and a half ago that President Donald Trump did not allow note-takers in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in mid-2017. This is not news – this is a story that the entirety of...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md) used the deferral of paychecks for federal employees due to Congress’ failure to approve the appropriation of funds to cover this expense as an inspiration to liken Trump to a pre-Civil War slave driver. “Back in 1860 millions of people were forced to work without being paid,” Hoyer observed. “We called that slavery. Now, with President Trump refusing to compromise by accepting our Party’s refusal to budge an inch on his request for $5 billion to fund border security as a precondition for Democrats to approve funds for ending the government shutdown, federal employees...

    It’s Sunday and when the sun comes up I’m confident it will be a glorious day in Park City. But for right now it’s pitch black and I’m feeling extremely lazy, so I offer today as an official open thread, accompanied by a few shots from residents published in the Park Record, the town’s newspaper of record. And let the Record reflect that this week’s Record’s man-on-the-street survey asked “who do you think is responsible for the government shutdown.” The responses indicated two people thought that all the politicians in D.C. were responsible whereas everyone reported with great enthusiasm that...

    Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif), chairperson of the 55-member Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), the most numerous in our nation’s history, has set the Caucus’ sights on “reversing the trauma inflicted on people of color by the Trump Administration over the past two years. We will use our tremendous power and influence to undo Trump’s evil plan to force millions of voters off of welfare and into the labor economy.” “The notion that a job is the answer to curing poverty and improving one’s life is a myth,” Bass contended. “Curing poverty has been the task of government since the 1960s’ Great...

    At a press conference this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) defended her unbending opposition to increased border security by asserting that "the crimes committed by some of those illegally entering the United States are not sufficient justification for implementing stricter enforcement at the border. The murders of innocent Americans by foreigners are regrettable, but bearable." "We are a large and populous nation," the Speaker pointed out. "We have plenty of room for persons who want to come live in America. The number of our citizens killed or harmed by individuals coming across our border without formal permission is only...

    Somebody at The Washington Times thinks Journalism jumped the shark this month. I’d say they are more than a bit behind the Times. While the Washington Times explains that the ludicrous “fact checking” by the MSM is not, in fact, checking at all: That’s the problem in a nutshell. If your fact check consists of “this is true, but” you are no longer checking a fact. You are engaged in an argument, and therefore, you’re guilty of misleading your readers — which, we thought, was the opposite of your job description. Meanwhile, America’s newspaper of record, The New York Times,...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This is going to become hard to keep up with. – When the Republican candidates for the presidency assembled for their first debate in the summer of 2015, there were 17 of them. At the rate the Democrats are going so far this year, they will exceed that number by Valentine’s Day. Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard told communist CNN talk show host Van Jones that she plans to toss her lei into the ring within the next week. As I mentioned yesterday, San Antonio politician Julian Castro will be making his formal...

It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision. Have some integrity.” Well, golly, our intrepid Millennial heroine is getting her chance to...

    We have just a little over a decade left to act and then - *poof* – the world as we know it is gone forever. We have just 12 years to make massive and unprecedented changes to global energy infrastructure to limit global warming to moderate levels. And while both Republicans and mainstream Democrats have refused to do anything to stop this horror show the next generation has stepped up to the plate: Young activists, who will be forced to live with the ravages of climate change, find this upsetting. So they have proposed a plan of their own. It’s...
