Blankenship jumps Republican ship, and I thank him

After finishing third in the Republican primary for a West Virginia U.S. Senate seat, Don Blankenship is switching parties to join the Constitution Party in an effort to stop Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

Press hypocrisy of the day

Obama wiretapped President Donald Trump.

The press does not care.

Jim Carrey joins the Trump Effect Hall of Shame

"What has happened to Jim Carrey? Once a revered comedian with a big fan base, Carrey hasn’t made a good movie in 10 years, and the ones he’s in have been box-office bombs," Rex Reed wrote.

The short answer is Donald Trump. Carrey foolishly began a one-sided feud with President Trump. Not only did Carrey fail to attract Trump's attention, but he lost what little audience he had left.

Trump's tariffs worked

In March, when President Donald John Trump threatened to impose tariffs, all the liberals in Washington (including those at the Weekly Standard and National Review) screamed Trade War.

As if we were not already in one.

I wrote, "Tariffs are a bargaining chip,"

Blue wave? Republicans lead one generic poll

On December 20, Democrats were on a high. They had just swiped a Senate seat in Alabama and they enjoyed a 13-point lead in the Real Clear Politics average of generic congressional ballot polls.

Two days later, President Trump signed the tax cuts into law -- and it has been downhill for Democrats ever since. Not one of them voted for tax relief.

Trump leads the world

"Paraguay opened its Israel embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, the second country to follow the United States in making the politically sensitive move from Tel Aviv," France 24 reported.

This is global leadership. Clinton said he would move the embassy to the capital of Israel. Bush 43 said he would move the embassy to the capital of Israel. Obama said he would move the embassy to the capital of Israel.

Trump was right in 1987, and is still right today.

Hey, Fox News Research. Do a little research.

And the last time the Democrats won a midterm was?


Fact check: Hillary is 100% correct

"Right now we're living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy. No, there are not tanks in the streets, but what's happening right now goes to the heart of who we are as a nation, and I say this not as a Democrat who lost an election but as an American afraid of losing a country."  -- Hillary Clinton to Yale graduates.

She is absolutely correct. The refusal by Barack Obama to be a Man and peacefully hand over power to the duly elected president of the United States is an unprecedented attack on our nation's beliefs, our rights as citizens, and our way of life.

Russian dossier shows our spies are lousy

Bumbling Bob Mueller's witch hunt is showing the federal system of spies and prosecutors is incompetent. Among other things, Mueller indicted a company that did not exist during the time covered in the indictment. I realize that prosecutors can indict a ham sandwich, but he indicted an imaginary one.

While the abuse of power is an outrage, the level of incompetence of America's spies and the FBI is stunning.

Countries that matter love Trump

Following The American people electing Donald John Trump president, expatriate academic Brian Klaas has been on a tear, writing three books ("The Despot's Accomplice: How the West is Aiding and Abetting the Decline of Democracy," "The Despot's Apprentice: Donald Trump's Attack on Democracy," and "How to Rig an Election").

His market is the liberal who refuses to accept the election results.

Time magazine is the Bamboo Lounge in "Goodfellas"

As I read the New York Times tribute to the collapse of Time magazine ("An oral history of how the pre-eminent media organization of the 20th century ended up on the scrap heap") I thought about the Bamboo Lounge in the movie "Goodfellas," a ruthless depiction of the ruthlessness of the mafioso.

For all their talk about family and loyalty, the gangsters turn on one another in the blink of an eye.

Why would West Virginians want an independent senator?

Democrat Joe Manchin told voters he would protect our Second Amendment rights if we elected him to the Senate. Once he got in, he proposed more gun control.

How Obama became the first communist president

The use of the state to spy on and infiltrate the campaign of a political opponent is the final proof of the truth that we have averted our eyes from for the last 14 years.

Barack Obama is a communist. Mild compared to Castro or Mao, but nevertheless a believer in state control of everything.

China is Trumped

Add getting a better trade deal from China to the list of President Donald Trump's promises made, promises kept.

Five days after opening the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem -- another promise kept -- China said it will “significantly increase purchases of United States goods and services” and “help support growth and employment in the United States.”

Trump played the media again this week

The Washington media's war on President Trump was another catastrophe this week. While they played their gotcha games, the president saw his popularity rise, the Democratic lead in the congressional races fall, and the sun shine brightly over the land of milk and honey.

By the end of the week, the press had sided with terrorists, Kim Jong Un, MS-13, and the Obama administration spying on political opponents.

Magic won't solve the opioid problem

The Opioid War begun by Big Pharma has ravaged West Virginia. The state's politicians are desperate to try anything that will work, except jail, which does work.

And so we have this needle exchange program.

Rapper is 59th inductee into the Trump Effect Hall of Shame

Mac Miller broke into the top echelon of rap at 19 with his tribute to Donald Trump's wealth called, "Donald Trump." The 2011 video has had 143 million views.

Miller is Pittsburgh's answer to Eminem, and like Eminem, Miller went full anti-Trump, tweeting, "Just please don't elect this m-----f----- man."

AP needs to delete its Marxist bias

We all make mistakes, but that does not make mistakes innocent. Indeed, the corrections by the Associated Press are very revealing.

Cavuto turns off Trump viewers

"Fox News was No. 1 in April 2018, which means it is officially the most-watched cable news network among total viewers for 196 consecutive months. The network averaged 2.4 million total prime time viewers in April, which is No.1 not just for cable news, but No. 1 across all of basic cable. FNC also averaged nearly 1.4 million viewers across total day, again No. 1 across cable. Fox News has been No. 1 in total day viewers for 22 consecutive months," TV Newser reported.

You look at the ratings and notice the new Fox News lineup is kicking it.
