Thank you, Teresa G. Warren

Teresa G. Warren has written the 98th Amazon review of "Trump the Press." Like my wife, it is short and sweet:
I'm not Trump's biggest fan by any means, but I'm glad I bought and read this book. Great book. Very well researched, in depth, and lots of details. Mr. Surber did a great job here.
Two more! I need two more reviews to make 100.

Americans deserve a better press than this

The White House physician released the results of his examination of the president. There is nothing wrong with the 71-year-old president.

The press is as disappointed as Kim Jong Un is. CNN trotted out its in-house quack to argue with the doctor.

S***hole liberalism

One of my dearest readers reminded me that Melinda Byerley, a coastal liberal tweeted on January 2017 that Middle America is “a s***thole with stupid people.”

Byerley is the CEO of a company that does marketing for Silicon Valley companies.

Who needs Europe?

President Trump is taking his wife and most of his Cabinet to Davos, Switzerland, for the annual economic summit.

The European Union bureaucracy wants to use this to get The Donald. They read the New York Times every day, and therefore, they think he is this great big dumb orange ogre. It's a new riff on their usual and predictable anti-Americanism.

Don't sell the NYT

Jack Shafer has advice for the new publisher of the New York Times, Arthur Sulzberger, who coincidentally is the fourth man with that name to become publisher.

Shafer's advice is to sell.

Why the stable genius took on North Korea

How a man treats his exes (be they in Texas or New York) will tell you something about him (and of course, them).

The first Missus Donald Trump told Fox News:
Remarking on a much-criticized tweet in which Donald Trump called himself a "stable genius," Ivana Trump echoed the sentiment.
“I don’t think Donald is going to do anything irrational. He is a stable genius, definitely," she said.

You ruined the night for Samantha Power

Samantha Power, Obama's final UN Ambassador, had Election Night 2016 all planned. She invited 37 other UN ambassadors to a party -- women only -- to celebrate the shattering of the glass ceiling in which no woman had ever been elected head of state.

Well, except if you disregard the 19 female heads of state at the time, as well as Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher.

How to keep Twitter from seeing your sexy pictures

The scandal du jour is that Twitter employees spend all day looking at pictures of nekkid people. The headline at the Drudge Report read:

Almost trigger World War 3, keep your job

Charles Peters, the founder of Washington Monthly magazine, regularly chastised the government for not firing its incompetents. Unfireable, he moaned.

Which was odd since Peters is a believer in the great patriarchal government that takes care of everyone from cradle to grave -- whether they want it or not.

Importing poverty

"Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America?" asked the headline in the Los Angeles Times.

It's imported.

200 people in Haiti see that Trump is no racist

Bill and Hillary Clinton used the earthquake in Haiti to raise millions for their sham charity. They also used their connections to scam a mining permit from the Haitian government for her worthless brother.

Meanwhile, Republican Senator Rand Paul was among the eye surgeons who went to Haiti to restore the eyesight of 200 people in 2015.

Trump vs. Obama, or capitalism vs. communism

The announcement this week that Mazda and Toyota that they will invest $1.6 billion in a plant to make automobiles and SUVs in Alabama is the latest erasure of the Obama legacy of closing factories, and moving work to foreign soil.

The new plant will mean employment in Alabama until at least the middle of the century, creating 4,000 direct jobs and up to five times as many jobs for suppliers.

Things journalists believe that are untrue

As I await the editing of "Fake News Follies of 2017," I re-read it and think disquieting thoughts about why Fake News replaced the real stuff.

Blaming Trump for a false alarm

The American news media is so dead set against Donald Trump that it is comical. The late-night hosts are ex-comedians who give somber, Howard Beale-like monologues each night. Meanwhile, the newspaper editorials are a scream.

The latest is the false alarm in Hawaii. Someone threw the switch that said the state was under a ballistic missile attack, and understandably everyone panicked.

Wall Street Journal is as Fake News as the rest

From the Wall Street Journal: "Trump Lawyer Arranged $130,000 Payment for Adult-Film Star’s Silence"
They say never write in anger, so I will just stop here.


Trump delivers. On time. Under budget.

"Trump didn’t win the presidency in 2016 because of his policy ideas. And he didn’t win because of James Comey or Russian interference or fake news on Facebook. Trump won because he connected with voters who are fed up with political elites who mostly serve their own interests. Many candidates promise change, but Trump’s blunt style and disregard for norms made him seem like he meant it. Judging by his performance in office so far, he did."

Bloomberg wins Fake News of the week

Bloomberg broke a story just as the New York Stock Exchange began trading on Wednesday:
China Weighs Slowing or Halting Purchases of U.S. Treasuries
The story turned out to be the latest in a string of Fake News reports by a news organization owned by Mike Bloomberg, whose opposition to President Trump knows no bounds

Thank you for being deplorable

"A deplorable from TN": has posted the 97th Amazon review of "Trump the Press."

It is delightful.

Men are expendable

Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit linked a story at The Chive: "These are the most dangerous civilian jobs in the United States."

He saw a gender gap. These jobs are dominated by men.
