Nadler tries to drag America into the Swamp, but Doug Collins fights back

Politics – Down and Dirty

Rep. Doug Collins was on fire today in the House Judiciary Committee as he fought back against Chairman Jerry Nadler’s anti-Trump, anti-American hypocrisy. Nadler has maneuvered the Committee so that it wants to turn the oversight hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr into an inquest (or more accurately, an inquisition) whereby he will be questioned

Brian Williams isn’t a newsman, but he plays one (badly) on MSNBC

Politics – Down and Dirty

It was a day full of pompous self-importance, but for sheer obliviousness we must take a moment to recognize Brian Williams of MSNBC, who is truly in a class by himself. As Lindsey Graham was opening the hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee today, he said: “So what have we learned from this report? After

Sen. Hirono’s sick attack on Barr must not go unpunished

Politics – Down and Dirty

Sens. Blumenthal, Booker and Hirono finally reduced the Senate Judiciary hearing to a political circus with their despicable attacks on Attorney General Barr. Hirono, in particular, used her time on the clock to call Barr a liar and attack his character. She tried to put words in his mouth and apparently thought he would chew

Barr’s ‘Rope-a-Dope’ leaves Democrats flailing and confused

Politics – Down and Dirty

Two hours of Attorney General Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee is in the bag, and so far there’s no indication that the Democrats will land a punch on Barr. Or perhaps more accurately they will punch repeatedly with so little impact on Barr that he appears to be adapting Muhammad Ali’s “Rope-a-Dope” strategy

Will Republicans roll over and play dead at today’s hearing?

Politics – Down and Dirty

It occurs to me that today’s Senate hearing with Attorney General Barr is rolling out very similarly to the press conference when Barr released the Mueller Report. In particular, the media set the table for the Democrats by spending the previous 24 hours attacking Barr’s credibility to try to soften him up for the fatal

Mueller gets P.O.’d at ‘Fake News’ — welcome to our world, Bobby!

Politics – Down and Dirty

Nothing better exemplifies the hideous arrogance of the Deep State than Robert Mueller’s peevish response to Attorney General Barr’s letter to Congress about the special counsel’s report. As reported by the Washington Post and numerous other sources on the eve of Barr’s testimony to Congress, Mueller was apparently beside himself after Barr said that Mueller

Hey N.Y. Times! Editorial cartoons are the responsibility of the editor

Politics – Down and Dirty

The controversy over the New York Times publishing not one but two anti-Semitic editorial cartoons in the last week gives an old retired newspaper editor such as myself one more reason to lament the sorry state of journalism. I’ve written extensively about the failures of journalism (collected in “The Media Matrix: What If Everything You

Important perspective from Roger Simon on synagogue shootings and anti-Semitism

Politics – Down and Dirty

Roger Simon, in his new column at PJMedia, shares his insights into the evil of anti-Semitism. Most importantly he talks about how both the recent synagogue shootings in the United States were carried out by Trump haters. That, of course, flies in the face of the leftist propaganda smear that Trump himself is an anti-Semite

My new column sees hope for real immigration reform if president continues bold initiatives

Politics – Down and Dirty

The last two years have seen phenomenal progress by President Trump on many fronts — taxes, jobs, tariffs, foreign policy to name a few. But there has been one area where he has been stymied — immigration, his signature issue. There are signs that the president is now moving vigorously toward solving that problem too,
