- I swear I don’t make this stuff up: Real headline in Sunday’s Washington Examiner: “Minimum Wage Activists Call Tipping Racist.” This is the latest talking point being used by activists who want to implement a $15 minimum wage for all jobs, nationwide, a move that would obviously destroy millions of jobs in the process. My wife and I are both “over-tippers” who generally tip more than the recommended 15-20% whenever the service is not awful, because we both had to work jobs like that at one point in our lives and know how hard they are. But now, I suppose we’ll be called “over-racists” for doing so. Honestly, the greatest fantasy writers in the world just could not make up the stuff progressives really think and say every day of the week.
- How about ‘no’, Chuck?: Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer told an interviewer on one of the Sunday morning talk shows about his latest bright idea to avoid nuking the filibuster over the Gorsuch nomination: Withdraw Gorsuch’s name from consideration, and set up a committee consisting of both Republican and Democrat senators who would have to unanimously approve any subsequent nominee before he would go to the Senate Juduciary Committee for consideration. Thus, you would have a committee making a recommendation to another committee making a recommendation to the full Senate. Yeahhhhhhhhhh…no.
- Hey, he’s got more credibility than our people do.: When the fake editors at the Washington Post wanted an opinion piece to defend what the writer calls “Sound and accurate journalism”, did they reach out to one of their own fake “journalists”? No. Did they reach out to any of the thousands of other fake journalists working at other news outlets in the nation’s capital? Nope. Did they reach out to any of the tens of thousands of other fake journalists working at other media outlets all across America, or even in other countries? Nopey. No, when the WaPo’s fake editors want an opinion piece to defend “Sound and accurate journalism” they do to right, by God: they go for an actor who once played a real journalist in a movie! Yes, Robert Redford has an opinion piece in the Sunday WaPo in which he defends “Sound and accurate journalism.” Mr. Redford apparently hasn’t gotten the memo that you could count the number of “sound and accurate journalists” in Washington today on the fingers of one hand. All the others are just partisan hacks. But hey, it’s been 42 years since he made that movie. Give the guy a break.
- Hey, think they can get Wendy Davis to run for Governor again? That’d be great.: In case you missed the earth-shattering news, the Texas Democratic Party has a new leading contender to be its sacrificial lamb to run against Senator Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections. His name is Beto O’Rourke – a fantastic Texas name if there ever was one – and he currently represents Texas’s 16th congressional district in congress. Beto is young, he’s smart, he’s articulate, he’s move-star good-looking, and hey, he even plays the guitar, so he’s cool, too. Given all of that, he has about the same chance of defeating Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections as you or I do. But he has a great, great name.
- Because that’s what the fake news media is all about.: The fake reporters at the NY Times reported over the weekend that Devin Nunes’ sources for the intelligence information on which he has been relying is two “White House staffers”, and even gave their names. The story naturally received massive attention and repetition in the fake news media. Trouble is, that report, like pretty much everything else in the NY Times these days, was false. Meanwhile, Adam Housley is reporting on Fox News this morning that his multiple sources inside U.S. intelligence agencies are telling him that the infamous liar Susan Rice was one of the high-ranking Obama officials who led the effort to spy on and unmask several members of the Trump Campaign and Transition Team. We can bet there will be nothing but crickets on this story from the rest of the fake news media.
Just another weekend in fake news media America.
That is all.
