The 2016 VP Debate

By: Mike McDaniel   Did you know that Hillary Clinton got Osama Bin Laden? Did you know that American troops are safe from terrorism because most of them aren’t in Iraq anymore? Did you know that Hillary Clinton’s inspired diplomacy stopped Iran’s nuclear program? This must be true because Tim Kaine [Read More]

Is President Obama reading my blog?

Trump is coming under the same attack that Palin did, not particularly because of their politics or accomplishments but because in the minds of the self-styled elite that populates Progressivism, Trump and Palin “are not one of us.” For people who value form infinitely more than substance there can be [Read More]

Black American, R. W. Bray’s Speech on the Black Community

I noticed this week a sudden increase in anti-Trump memes on the Facebook timelines of family members, their friends and associates who while not pointing fingers in any particular direction question the sanity and intelligence of non-Progressive Black Americans and since the presidential election season has heated up, those Black [Read More]

Donald Trump: I’ve Never…

By: Mike McDaniel   Donald Trump has demonstrated an annoying, and potentially politically fatal tendency to take distracting political jabs personally. All too often, instead of attacking Hillary Clinton’s very real and very damaging acts, omissions, crimes, character flaws—she’s essentially one large, oven mitt pantsuit wearing character flaw—and corruption, he spends days [Read More]

SHOCKER: Feminists admit Hillary incompetent to be president

Yes, that caption is click bait exaggeration, but actually only by a little. Feminists have not said explicitly that Hillary is too mentally and emotionally weak to be president. They have, however, said it implicitly by saying that, to the extent she didn’t completely destroy Trump during the first debate, it [Read More]

The need for Trump to strategize, practice, self-discipline and not take the bait.

So confident is Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media that many of us are (a) wondering if the mainstream media watched the same presidential debate Monday as the rest of us; (b) wished that Donald Trump had actually prepared for the debate; and (c) not allowed himself to fall for [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 9/29/16 — the “election” edition and open thread

I expended most of my authorial energy today attacking PBS’s Frontline show The Choice 2016, which purported to delve into Hillary’s and Donald’s character to help inform people in advance of the election but which was, in fact, a Hillary hagiography and a Donald hit piece. Still, there are a [Read More]

PBS savagely attacks Donald Trump, using a sober tone to hide its basic dishonesty

Tuesday night, PBS’s Frontline premiered The Choice 2016, which purported to be a documentary examining the lives and careers of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

What they’re saying about Trump and Clinton

I scored Trump as the victor in the debate because he did what he needed to persuade, whereas Hectoring Hillary’s “teacher’s pet” stylings and grackle voice were offputting. Here’s are some excerpts from what other commentators have to say about Trump and Hillary. What a lot of them have in [Read More]

Debate analysis and open thread

I tried to watch the debate, not as a politics nerd who is up on a lot of data, but based on what I’ve learned about persuasion techniques from reading Scott Adams’ posts. This meant tuning out a lot of the words and focusing on the key points Hillary and [Read More]

(photo courtesy of WikiCommons, Flickr and Gage Skidmore) It’s definitely on tonight, and while we can’t predict exactly how it will go, here are some things I’m pretty sure you can take for granted: You’ll frequently be under the impression Trump is debating ‘moderator’ Lester Holt rather than Mrs. Clinton.
