Self-inflicted wounds

"In the sixth month of Donald Trump’s presidency, we are witnessing an unprecedented meltdown of much of the media. Standards have been tossed overboard in a frenzy to bring down the president." - Michael Goodwin at the NY Post

The end may be near

From Wikipedia 
"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall." - Proverbs 16:18

When bureaucrats assure you something can't happen, what they say can't happen may be just around the corner.
Yellen: Banks 'very much stronger'; another financial crisis not likely 'in our lifetime'
I put Yellen's sentiments right up there with "God himself could not sink this ship."

More busted than trusted

Not been a good week or two for CNN.

But to be fair, it's not just CNN that seems willing to destroy its credibility to keep dishing outlandish (and provably false) story lines about the alleged workings of some evil Russia menace.

And it's not just right-wingers willing to call out the recent instances of media bungling.

Actually, I'm not sure bungling is the right word. It's more than bungling when organisations disregard their own standards and practices, and repeatedly make mistakes so blatant that it's impossible not to see there's a multitude of systemic problems on-set and behind the scenes contributing to these very public failings.

It would appear the Democrats, who got much of the Russia hysteria rolling, have begun wising up, and are publicly distancing from anti-Russia story lines.

But the media?

Media seems hell bent to remain on its self destructive path.

Those bastards at the Fed

The Fed worked overtime to make Obama's economic disasters look like success.

Now it appears the Fed works overtime to undercut the Trump economy.

The Swamp is much wider, and the muck of it much deeper, than most realize.

The lunacy of Democrats

Via Twitter:


It's stupid stuff like this that excites a core of what's left of the Democrat base. But this stupid talk is also a key reason why the Democrat base continues to shrink. The Democratic Party has intentionally morphed itself into a small (and getting smaller) and marginalized resistance movement, and seems to have no aspirations to return to being a true broad-based national party.

Update: Speaking of Maxine Waters, here's something you probably wont see her tweet:

Who said what, and when...

Did Grassley's comments make the cable news channels?


If not, why not?

BTW, I've yet to see anyone dispute the accuracy of Grassley's comments.

Sketchy goings on

From: TV Newser
I dunno.

Almost brings on a certain nostalgia for an era when TV news reporting didn't rely so much on cheap on-camera "gotcha" gimmicks.
CNN Sent a Sketch Artist to Today's White House Briefing

Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate...

It would appear last week's attempt at assassinating Republicans have not deterred additional talk of political violence. It would appear there are those on the left clamoring for more such things.

NBC News is among those reporting some comments from actor Johnny Depp:
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked a cheering crowd at the Glastonbury music festival in the U.K. on Thursday night. “Now I want to clarify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been awhile and maybe it’s time.”

Gotta love the hastag here

Via Twitter:

Gun control failed again

It would appear some of the toughest gun control laws on the books, laws more stringent than Democrats profess to want on a national basis, failed to deter last week's would-be assassin targeting Republican members of Congress. 

Black hoodies are the new brown shirts

Strikes me, it's the self-labeled anti-fascists who have embraced the fascist model and tactics.

And violence is a big part of their game.

Dems still don't get it

Why is it so many Democrats can't accept their candidate lost. Why do so many Democrats insist on vilifying and attacking anyone who doesn't embrace their so-called progressive doctrine?



Democrats draw ever tighter exclusionary circles of who they accept as acceptable, and seemingly attack anyone outside those circles.

And then they get befuddled that they can't seem to win elections.

Go figure.
