The 93% Media

May 25, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Anyone even remotely conscious and paying attention must, by now, have come to the conclusion that the Media have given up any pretense of professional, unbiased journalism where Donald Trump is concerned. What has been missing to date is precisely how far beyond the bend the media [Read More]

To My Students: Farewell For Now…

May 24, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    The end of the school year is a bittersweet time for teachers. It’s satisfying to bring to an end a year of hard work. That engenders a feeling of accomplishment, of completion. But it’s always sad, because very soon, our classes will meet for the final [Read More]

Enviro Insanity

May 21, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    I present for your approval, gentle readers, an article by my good friend Bill Scott, who I’m sure you recall from my recent article about his heart troubles.  He’s also the father of Erik Scott, a man I’ve written a great deal about.   To read [Read More]

The Special Counsel: A Few Initial Observations

May 20, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate the Russia/collusion affair. Rosenstein is acting AG only in the Russia/collusion affair, and only because Jeff Sessions was stupid enough to listen to Democrats and recuse himself in that [Read More]

Comic Writings For 2016-2017

May 19, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    I think it time I veer away from the political carnage and enjoy a laugh or two. Each year I post the inadvertently funny things my students write, and sometimes, say. I also throw in the occasional odd communication between staff members. Lest anyone think these [Read More]

Donald Trump: The Resistance Strikes 2

May 18, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Gentle readers: I know this didn’t happen mere hours ago, but I’m not a news outlet, so I normally wait a day or two to try to gather more complete information before commenting on such things. I’m sure you understand… Some may be making the mistake [Read More]

Trump: The Resistance Strikes

May 17, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By Mike McDaniel:    The Washington Post has done it again. This time they’ve published an anonymously sourced story claiming Mr. Trump somehow gave away the intelligence store in a meeting with the Russians. In short order, every person in the room for that meeting—and there were few—has clearly stated [Read More]

Supreme Court: Concealed Carry?

May 16, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    It began in 2008 when the Supreme Court handed down its Heller decision. DC law all but made it impossible for anyone to obtain a permit to keep a gun in their home(?!), and also required the fortunate and well-connected few to render the weapons unusable [Read More]

Campus Rape Facts: Who Yah Gonna Believe?

May 15, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    The statistics are unquestionable–at least to the social justice warriors inhabiting American colleges: something between 20 and 25 percent of women will be raped during their four (or more) years of college. Presumably, women sticking around for a master’s or doctorate degree face even more daunting [Read More]

The Freddie Gray Case, Update 45: The Baltimore Death Spiral

May 14, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    As I’ve previously reported, the failed prosecutions of Baltimore Police Officers in the accidental death of Freddie Gray have caused both immediate and long-term problems for the Baltimore Police Department, and for Baltimore. Such consequences were easily predictable, and as they have worsened, the Mayor, and [Read More]

Donald Trump: Caloric Fascist

May 13, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    I stopped reading Time Magazine at least two decades ago (I may be a bit off on the date) when it announced the issues revolving around guns were so important, they were no longer going to attempt to be professional and unbiased and would henceforth become [Read More]

Brown, Martin, Gray and CNN: Fake News

May 12, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    CNN has long been derisively known as the “Clinton News Network” for its unabashedly left-wing bias and fawning coverage of the Clintons.  More recently, as a consequence of its obscenely unprofessional coverage of Hillary’s Clinton’s failed second run for the presidency, CNN has come to epitomize [Read More]

Comey And The Insupportable Media

Comey Out: Rule Of Law In?

May 10, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By Mike McDaniel    The firing, on May 9, of FBI Director James Comey, will continue to splatter across the news for months, perhaps years to come. The hypocrisy is already stunning. Democrats wanted Comey fired because Hillary. Trump fired Comey. Democrats want Trump fired because Comey. None of this [Read More]

Bob Owens: Patriot And Friend

May 9, 2017 mcdanielm 2

By: Mike McDaniel     Instead of my usual Tuesday article on firearms and related issues, I have, today, a sad duty: writing about the death of a great friend of the Second Amendment, and a great friend of SMM, Bob Owens (1969-2017). It was in mid-2010 that, browsing the Internet, [Read More]

Satirizing Self-Satire

May 8, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    As I tell my students when we’re dealing with common literary terms, satire is a form of comedy where one makes fun of individuals or institutions by exaggeration, or by telling the whole truth about them. I suppose I should update the definition a bit, because [Read More]

Pristine Politicians

By: Mike McDaniel    This one will be brief. It involves former DNC Chairwoman (Chairperson? Chairbeing? Zebeing? I can’t keep up…) Debbie Wasserman Schultz, quoted in the Washington Examiner on Barack Obama’s upcoming $400,000 speech to Wall Street denizens: To read the rest, go here…

Barack Obama: Capitalist Communist

May 6, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    You know, gentle readers, they really did think he was the messiah, a light worker, the bringer of hope and change to the wretched, teeming refuse, the God and gun clingers. And now, only now, do they discover he was just another calculating, crooked, self-promoting, selfish, [Read More]
