    On this day in history: 1848 - Marx publishes Manifesto – and Elizabeth Warren was there 1828 - Cherokee receive their first printing press – and Elizabeth Warren was there I understand Lizzy later went on to join the WWII Code Talkers as well. Last week – to advance her chances in 2020 - she dropped in uninvited at the National Congress of American Indians' winter session in Washington in an attempt to put to rest the controversy surrounding her claim of Native American (minority) status. She didn’t apologize for the cultural appropriation (only required of non-minority conservatives) in fact...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Trump, as only he can do it, got onto his Twitter account Tuesday evening and trolled the fake journalists at CNN and MSNBC who helped promote one of the fake Russian-staged anti-Trump rallies on November 12, 2016: “Bad ratings @CNN & @MSNBC got scammed when they covered the anti-Trump Russia rally wall-to-wall. They probably knew it was Fake News but, because it was a rally against me, they pushed it hard anyway. Two really dishonest newscasters, but the public is wise!” Never. Stop. Tweeting....

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) If you listen to Rush Limbaugh – I personally do so 2-3 times a week, when my schedule permits – in today’s first hour you heard him give an update of what is going on with the case of General Mike Flynn. If you read the Campaign Update, you’d have read all about all of that stuff on Valentine’s day. Just sayin’. Ok, in fairness to Rush, there has been one important event in the case that took place since February 14: On Friday, February 16, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an...

    Stephen Jobs’ last project came to fruition last year: the Company’s 175 acre, $5 billion Apple Park Campus in Cupertino, California. The first of an estimated 13,000  employees began to move in early this year. Despite it’s massive size,it is esthetically very pleasing both externally,and internally.But like most Apple design-obsessed products that are wrapped in a beautiful package, there are a few operational flaws that need to be worked out. Specifically, employees keep walking into the massive internal safety glass walls that are everywhere.The entire project was designed by the British architectural firm Foster + Partners in conjunction with Apple’s...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Man, the fake editors and fake journalists at the NYTimes had to have really, really hated to report the results of their own fake poll on Monday, showing as it does that, despite the fake news media’s feverishly coordinated effort with the Democrats to convince the American people that getting to keep a little bit more of their hard-earned money via Trump’s tax cuts was the end of the world and would kill us all, a majority of the public now supports the tax cut...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Pretty much everyone knows who Jeff Foxworthy is. Well, anyone over the age of 25 does, anyway. For those who are unaware, Foxworthy is the southern comedian who is most famous for his “You might be a redneck” routine. Some of his funniest quotes include things like: - If you’ve ever had to climb a water tower with a can of paint to protect your sister’s honor, you might be a redneck; - If your wife has ever had to tell you “honey, come get this transmission out of the tub...

    I’m simply tired of the Left’s latest round of “debate” over gun control and immigration “reform.” It’s beyond tedious at this point, and I blame the Russians.Here’s the Left’s complete argument, on both issues:”SHUT UP! I’m on a roll.”And another thing I’m sick of: the Winter Olympics. Not the games so much as the coverage: How NBC Flubbed Its Coverage, Reported The Wrong Gold Medalist, Then Botched The Correction Of One Of The Most Stunning Upsets In Olympic History.This was the race in which snow boarder Ester Ledecká, who entered the women’s Super-G on a whim and a set of...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) I watched it on YouTube so you don’t have to, and trust me, you don’t want to. – Fergie butchered the Star Spangled Banner before the NBA All Star game last night so badly that Roseanne Barr was standing and yelling “I’m not the worst anymore! I’m not the worst anymore!” Fergie, sounding for all the world like a lounge singer skit on Saturday Night Live, was so awful that several players could be seen openly mocking her. She was so bad that commentator Shaquille O’Neal looked at Charles Barkley afterwards and...

    In a proposal dubbed “America’s Harvest Box,” President Trump’s new budget calls for replacing half of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) vouchers with actual food for 80% of the program’s recipients. The “box” would contain allotments of shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit and vegetables. Democrats were quick to attack the plan. Michigan Sen Debbie Stabenow, the ranking Democrat on the agriculture committee, labeled it “not a serious proposal.” Rep Jim McGovern (D-Mass) called it “a cruel joke. It unfairly limits the choices of those dependent on the government for their living....

    We’re making progress. We’ve gone from a hysterical “Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election” to this, from Jerry Nadler: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack is continuing. And that our intelligence agencies tell us that it’s going to certainly continue through the next election. And...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This past week saw the fake news media have what probably was its fakest week ever – which is saying an awful lot – and here a few of the highlights: The fake news media, lacking any other negative story on which to focus in order to avoid reporting on the massive, mushrooming scandal of corruption at DOJ and the FBI, spent the first several days of the week hammering the Rob Porter story. While Porter’s likely a wife-abusing turd who needed to be fired and needs to be punished, that hardly...

    ABC, AP and others ran with false information on shooter’s ties to extremist groups. Following misrepresentations by a white nationalist leader and coordinated efforts by internet trolls, numerous researchers and media outlets spread a seemingly false claim that the man charged with killing more than a dozen people at a Florida high school belonged to an extremist group. Law enforcement agencies say they have no evidence so far to support this claim, and the rumor appears to have been perpetrated by white nationalist trolls themselves.

    This week, Nikolas Cruz killed 17 and wounded another 13 in an assault on the students and faculty of Marjory Stoneman High School in Parkland, Florida. By law, the school is a designated “gun free zone.” This ensured that Cruz would be able to fire at will until off-site police arrived, which they did within five minutes of being called. By that time the 19-year-old Cruz had ditched his weapon and blended in with the fleeing students. Cruz’s heinous plan was months in the making. Back on September 5, 2017 Cruz posted a YouTube boast “I’m going to be a...

    Daytime TV personality Oprah Winfrey's assertion that she will not run for president in 2020 "because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn't God kinda tell me? And I haven't heard that. I had a lot of wealthy men calling, telling me that they would run my campaign and raise $1 billion for me, but it's just not in my spirit." Joy Behar, a panelist on ABC's The View talk show, called Oprah's remarks "insane. It's the kind of thing we'd expect to come out of Vice-President Pence's mouth. What can she be thinking putting the imaginary words of...

The Left is too busy using the tragedy in Parkland to woo voters, raise money and castigate their opponents again as knuckle-dragging Neanderthals hauling 21st century “assault” weapons around.Among the whoppers that have already been debunked: 1. that Nikolas Cruz was a white nationalist, 2. this was the 18th school shooting in the U.S. this year – a claim so...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) After all the hysteria over guns on the cable fake news networks this week, here’s a reality check from our friends in the Great White North of Minnesota: WCCO CBS Minnesota reports that record numbers of Minnesotans now own guns, record numbers of Minnesotans now have concealed carry permits, and the state’s violent crime rate hit a new all-time record low in 2017. That’s the reality of gun ownership in America: The more people who own guns and have permits to carry, the lower the violent crime rate becomes. Since concealed carry...

    This week the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voted 9-4 to overturn President Trump's anti-terrorist travel ban from eight countries on the grounds that "it violates the First Amendment's guarantee of religious freedom. The President's assumption that the Muslim call for jihad from its adherents empowers him to block the immigration of practitioners of this religion into this country is mistaken. The protection of the First Amendment is absolute. It allows no exception for religious practices that entail violence. To single out one religion merely because it commands the coercion or murder of unbelievers is, therefore, unconstitutional." Chief Judge...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) While advocates on both sides of the largely-irrelevant gun control issue are talking past one another every hour on the hour on all the cable TV networks, one way to really, truly improve on the current system for preventing such acts in the future is becoming crystal clear: The FBI must be removed from the equation. First, let’s look at this killer’s background: - Law enforcement had had to be called to his home an almost unbelievable 39 times during the four years leading up to Wednesday’s act of mass murder;...

How about FLOTUS visiting sick children at the National Institute of Health to pass out Valentines and make cookies?The media coverage was predictable, as usual: Melania Trump was feeling the love on Valentine's Day in $2,995 Calvin Klein look.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Do Democrat candidates really want to stake their prospects on San Fran Nan? – The demented face of the Democrat Party was on full display for reporters yesterday, as San Fran Nan stuttered, stammered, spasmed, muttered and facial ticked her way through a press availability. The American Mirror captures the horror show that the rest of the fake news media refuses to report on. This is who Democrats want to replace Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House next year. Frightening. Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. Oh, wait…: With Mitt...
