All that who ha over Chicago's murders is just a plot to embarrass Obama

That’s the take on Chicago’s street gang murders by Chris Hayes, the MSNBC anchor who came here to lecture us about how it ain’t so bad. Here’s what he said: Chicago’s status as the poster child of urban violence — even though it is nowhere near the U.S.’s most violent city, per capita — is “unquestionably”... Read more »

MSNBC, Cincinnati is not Cleveland

Adding to my despond this election day was watching a report on MSNBC on the presidential race in Ohio. A graphic in the background showed Cleveland located where Cincinnati actually is, on the Ohio River in the southwestern part of the state. Where Cleveland actually is, in the northeastern part of the state on the shore... Read more »

Even progressive MSNBC is aghast at the Clintons' "ethical deficit"

How much more must the commonweal suffer the Clintons’ ethical deficit? Hillary and Bill Clinton has made the Chicago Way–the legendary Chicago corruption–seem to be small potatoes. Should the attorney general of New York shutdown the Clinton Foundation like he did the Trump Foundation for its shakedowns? Should the law be enforced evenhandedly? Even the progressive MSNBC...

How Chris Matthews nailed Donald Trump

The way that MSNBC bloviator/interviewer Chris Matthews nailed Donald Trump should be a textbook lesson for other journalists on how not to let the billionaire/insider/simpleton/loser get away with his facile and dishonest answers. That’s according to Poynter Institute’s savvy senior media writer James Warren, who this morning penned an insightful column reminding journalists that they... Read more »

New Catholic hospitals are just another part of the 'war on women'

According to the ACLU and MSNBC the opening of new Catholic hospitals is a bad thing because there are just more places where women can’t get abortions. Apparently it’s a bad thing that one in nine hospital beds now is provided by Catholics, but who would step up and provide them if Catholics didn’t? If... Read more »

Martin Bashir is looking for work. Any suggestions?

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC after trash-mouthing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If he was forced out (and who would argue that he wasn’t), I think that it’s too bad. They should keep him around. Just like Rush Limbaugh is a favorite of lefties because he supposedly exemplifies everything bad about the right, Bashir has... Read more »

Another Obama Obamacare lie: 'Substandard' health insurance

In addition to lying about how you can keep your health insurance and your doctor, here’s a new one about how the millions of cancelled individual policies are ‘substandard.’ When President Barack Obama last week defended his signature Affordable Care Act by claiming that he is ridding America of “substandard* health insurance” policies, he left...

President Obama sends a strong fatherhood message to fellow liberals. Will they listen?

President Barack Obama had better watch himself. If he keeps talking like he did Friday at Hyde Park Academy in Chicago, he might be mistaken for former Vice President Dan Quayle. In a speech about urban gun violence, Obama targeted truant fathers for being the impetus in causing a raft of social problems, as Quayle... Read more »

How to make 'progressives' go ballistic; mention Herman Cain

Fox News has hired Herman Cain,  “the spirited former presidential candidate and ex-pizza CEO, as a contributor for Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network,” the Chicago Tribune reports. Be sure to read the comments following the story; you’d think that Fox News had lost its mind, from the ugly tone of liberal comments. My own... Read more »

Marco Rubio, the GOP's foam party candidate

Marco Rubio, the popular Republican senator from Florida and often-mentioned as a possible Republican presidential candidate, said a foam party set him straight and on the path to marry his now wife, Jeanette. As reported in a December, 2012 GQ magazine interview: GQ: You’re the first senator I’ve ever spoken to who had a transformative life... Read more »
