Groundhog Day isn’t until a week from Saturday, but as in the Bill Murray movie, for some Congressional Democrats, every day is Groundhog Day, and they're determined to keep rehashing the past over and over and over.  But at least Bill Murray eventually learned his lesson. The Dems just seem to want to keep driving the truck over the same cliff again and again until the end of time.


Something to remember the next time you hear that Trump is “the worst President ever!” and he “hasn’t accomplished a single thing!!”

From the A.P.:  “Applications for US Unemployment Aid Fall to 49-Year Low.”


There’s a meme going around on Facebook called the “10-Year Challenge,” where users are dared to post a photo of themselves now and 10 years ago.  Seems like a fun, harmless idea; no possible ulterior motives behind it. And Facebook swears it was user-created and they have nothing to do with it.

But even if that’s true, this link explains why you still might want to think twice before participating.  Remember the #1 rule of the Internet: if a site lets you use it for free, then its product is you.

Here’s yet another example of just how regressive so-called “Progressives” are. Since the headline of this article is “Subway Riders Demanding Answers,” I thought I’d give it to them.  The short answer is just three words: “Mayor Bill DeBlasio.”  

It took Republican Mayor Rudy Giuliani to turn around the dirty mess New York City had become in the 1970s, ‘80s and early ‘90s.  Putative Republican Mayor Mike Bloomberg kept the renaissance going for another 12 years.  And it’s taken “progressive” leftist Bill DeBlasio just four years to bring back the pre-Giuliani New York and make the Big Apple wormy again. 

This is what comes of schools that don’t teach real history: young voters grow up thinking that the clean, crime-free, well-functioning cities and nation they grew up in happened that way by magic.  So they elect liberal Democrats to run them and then learn the hard way that it isn’t true.  I just wish they’d quit forcing those of us who do remember the bad old days to stop having to relive them, too.


Before this turns into another “Birther” controversy: Despite a claim on the Internet, Sen. Kamala Harris is a legal US citizen and is eligible to run for President.  Her parents’ status doesn’t matter: she was born in California, which legally makes her a natural-born US citizen.  As the linked article makes clear, there are at least 1,001 legitimate reasons why she should not be elected President, so let’s concentrate on those.


The website Buzzfeed is launching a reorganization that will involve cutting 250 jobs.  That may be tough, since I assume there are no fact-checker jobs to cut.



 NBC used to have a PSA campaign with the theme “The More You Know…”  It might be time to revive it, since the more we learn about the alleged “evidence” of the Covington school kids’ “racism” that the media keep flogging, the stupider the people pushing that narrative look.



And speaking of that story, to all the people who rushed to smear and threaten those boys before seeing the evidence, their attorney has a message: back down, retract and apologize or he’ll see you in court.  And the clock is ticking.

Commentary continues below advertisement


Also, to those who made terroristic threats against the boys and their school on social media: the county prosecutor is taking a hard look at you and intends to hold you accountable.  Suddenly, being a keyboard warrior who threatens school boys doesn’t seem so appealing, does it?


When his emotional support alligator gets too big, he'll just have to get an emotional support cobra.


Democrats really ARE sheep.


America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, gets over half a billion dollars a year in our tax money from Washington.  Despite Republican promises that if they were in charge of Congress, that would be cut off, PP’s federal funding was actually increased by over $200,000 last year.  Planned Parenthood and its defenders insist that none of this federal money is used to support abortion, and that if it were cut off, it would deal a devastating blow to providing women with crucial “health services.”

Okay, I have to ask: like what?  PP’s latest annual report is out, and it shows that once again, the number of abortions performed in its clinics is up (332,757, the largest number since 2011-2012), while its other health services are sharply down.  For instance, the number of breast exams and pap tests fell from 617,677 to 570,444 since last year.  And don’t even ask for a mammogram; their clinics don’t have the machines and will send you somewhere else.

And of course, the number of adoption referrals plummeted from an already low 3,889 to just 2,831 (again, compared to 332,757 abortions.  That’s 117 abortions for every adoption referral. Yet they deny being an abortion mill.)

Inquiring minds want to know: if PP is getting more of our tax money than ever…and performing fewer non-abortion services, but more abortions…yet our money isn’t going to support abortions…then where the heck is it going?  Wherever it’s going, it seems to me that it could be going someplace where it could be spent a lot more effectively, like to clinics that actually do provide crucial women’s health services.



Remember the ugly incident in Washington where some rude young people taunted and tried to assault an elderly man just because of his political views?  And leftists were outraged and demanded those young punks be held to account?

No, I’m not talking about the Catholic school boys and the Native American activist.  That story was a big fat, manufactured lie that liberals went ballistic over.  I’m talking about the two young liberals who caught on video being incredibly rude and nasty to a 71-year-old Trump supporter who was just minding his own business, and liberals didn’t say “boo” about them.

Once again proving the saying about the left, “If it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.”



This might explain why there was so much confusion about whether Native American activist Nathan Phillips was a Vietnam veteran.



If you’re not tired yet of reading about the media/social media lynching of some innocent Catholic kids, then this is a must-read.  Think of it as a final summation to the jury of public opinion. 

Kevin D. Williamson at National Review takes a broad overview of what happened, why, and what it says about our current political cultural.  Along the way, he reads the riot act to, as he puts it, these “hysterical ninnies” who practice “narrowly partisan, selfish, deeply stupid, entirely unpatriotic, childish, foot-stamping, fingers-in-the-ears, weeping, cooties-loathing, teary-eyed, tremulous, quavering, pansified, gormless, deceitful, dishonorable, and cynical politics of the lowest kind.”

See, you’re going to enjoy reading this.  Incidentally, Williamson isn’t even a Trump supporter.  He wrote a book called “The Case Against Trump.”  But he has had it with “liars,” “frauds,” “morons and lunatics” who are incapable of acting like grownups.



Upsetting the Prevailing Media Narrative:  At the link, a video in which the top cold case detective on NBC’s “Dateline” – a man so good at ferreting out the truth and solving long-unsolved mysteries that he’s known as the “Evidence Whisperer” – explains why he is a Christian.

    I disagree with you assessment that since Kamala Harris was born in CA, she is a citizen. The Constitution provision, I believe, is for the parents to be "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" (the U.S.), and I read that neither were citizens at the time, so how can she be a legitimate citizen herself? A mangled interpretation of the Constitution, which never should have accommodated "anchor babies".

    FIRST: The way I see it is, he had more GUTS to end the shutdown so the American people could pay their rents and feed their families, when Elitist Pelosi could give a rats tail about it! He is more about the American People than Pelosi OR the far left ever will be. She won "nothing" in the eyes of our Lord.

    SECOND: When President Trump finally has to choose between shutting down the government AGAIN, or declaring an National Emergency as more caravans will soon be at "MY" border, he has MADE HIS CASE BY HIS PAST AND CURRENT ACTIONS TO STAND BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT, WITH HIS HEAD UP HIGH, that he did EVERYTHING POSSIBLE, stayed in Wash. D.C. waiting for ANY democrat/SOCIALIST who would come and talk with him on this, while all the little spineless followers afraid to lose the next election got in line to follow Fancy Nancy. There are FEW leaders in the "lefty" side of congress, if any at all - only spineless, self serving followers. There are no "Joe Manchins".. there is just one - Joe Manchin!
    IN THE END: Trump will win this battle! He "WILL" build the wall/fence/whatever is needed, even if it means he is impeached by the Congress! It is his so-call base that is "caving in" IF they do not continue to support this man! DO YOU THINK GOD HAD ANY HAND IN HIM GETTING ELECTED? OR NOT! I stand with the Lord, that HE Did! I'm not budging!

    I see this man who has been beaten up by everyone for trying to turn this country around, SAVE OUR CONSTITUTION! AND doing his best to listen to everyone and I hope those who scold him for what they think is "caving in" will have another look at this from a different perspective.
    MAGA! Those who voted for dems in the congress this last round drank the cool-aid. There were elitist against the President - Ryan, McCain, you know who they are...they are gone! and only now, had he had a majority, could he have gotten through what we are uphill on now.
    IF Fancy Elitist Pelosi caves in, she will lose her speakership! It is SHE who has deserted the American people! Pelosi and the dems and sanctuary city/state politicians have blood on their hands in my opinion for all the border crime coming here, murders, rapes, child trafficking....If you don't live in a sanctuary city, then, it is not real to most what is happening! It is too far away to relate.

    The character and genuineness of a person, in my opinion, is seen not in the words out of their mouth that they "care," but by the actions they take to help hurting people. Our President has more guts than I've seen anyone in my 74 years on this earth in this horrible political arena we find ourselves in.

    Re: Birther Issue:
    What amazes me is how it was passed over something obvious on the photo copy of what was supposed to be the original Obama Birth Certificate file in Hawaii. There was an OMB number on the certificate I saw that was portrayed to be the original, and Form OMB numbers, I understood, did not exist at the time Obama was born. Also his college application records seemed to be hidden under the rug. The word was "MUM" about that. hummm. Sounds a little "Pocahonta-ish" to me...I'm just sayin'....

    I am so disappointed in President Trump. I just heard his speech selling "we the people" out to the likes of Nancy Peloisi. I feel betrayed in him as well as the rest of the Republican party. If the Democrats had been in charge of the Senate instead of Mitch McConnell they would have taken any steps necessary, changing any rules necessary to enact any kind of laws they deemed good for their side even if it meant the downfall of the nation. Instead the Republicans caved which will cause the downfall of the nation & allow the corruption to continue unabated! Thanks a lot Donald Trump! Keep going the way you are going & we will have a Democrat in your office in 2021.

    Hello Mike, Keep on articulating the truth as you're doing. I want to repeat my request to you to help the Republicans both create and articulate a health care plan that will lower costs and cover the uninsurable. I haven't heard any Republicans spell out how and why private health care is better than single payer (government run) health insurance so the average American can readily understand it. Kim Reynolds, pro-life governor elect of Iowa, won but I must say she didn't articulate why private health care is better. Fred Hubbel, her pro-abortion opponent, was a lot slicker in talking about health care even though I totally disagree with his pro-abortion stance and his support of Planned Parenthood (he was on the board of PP in the 1980's). Republicans must be able to explain what an effective health plan is, why it's cost effective, and how it addresses the concerns of all Americans. I think you are just the guy to show them the answers to these concerns, so I beg you to do this.

    I really have to wonder a question the actions of President Trump, namely his choice for AG ??? This Barr guy has a record that sure does not fit with our 2nd amendment! Is the President so out of touch and uninformed that he would even consider this man, or in reality is he leading us down a primrose path?????

    Neguse needs to lay off the pot smoking!! Lately, I feel like Dems need a serious intervention. Their anger levels are going to get somebody killed. Old Nancy has evil pouring out of her eyes. That gavel sure went to her head. And whinny Chuck follows like a dog, following another dog in heat. He ain't in control. The Nancy & Chuckles team go down in the history books as immature children. Getting tired of their temper tantrums & going on long weekends, while people are taking it on the chin. Why doesn't some rich Republican do a documentary on the time line of dems showing who they really are in history. Even start at the 60's forward. That should be enough to make people disgusted with them. Talk about prejudice, they are! And can someone order the moving truck for Barbara Streisand, since she likes Canada better. Just pack her up & get her across the border. Actually, a lot of Hollywood should get packed up & moved. If you think Socialism works, let's get you moved there. Maybe in 5 yrs or so, you'll be begging to move back. They need a real education on it. Then they can take fake news with them. And we can get back to MAGA.

    I just read an interesting article that points out all that Pelosi has done against this country and the writer is pushing for her to be fired and charged with treason. I think I like this guy. A lot!

    Governor, Thank you for the Kevin D. Williamson article. Boy did he hit the nail on the head. I am wondering how much longer this media/social warrior frenzy will continue. Please keep us informed about the progress of the KY county prosecutor. I pray that he is able to make a solid case against those who have terrorized these kids and their families.

    Again, thanks for covering all the happenings in a sane a right side of the story.

    Dear Governor,
    Greetings and may you always a have good health. Just would like to share with you what a work colleague stated the other day. That the liberal thought is neither logical or good for anyone. If there is a benefit , it would probably be for the liberal politician who thinks that if he or she crows the progressive mantra that the like minded souls will vote for them so they would be able to keep their power position in our society. As simple as this sounds, I find a problem with this thought and why these people are put into office not for the constituents but for their own cushy job. Are we doomed as I see this as the way of the future and people like Ocasio, Warren, Shiff, Pelosi and all will be voted in and the rest of us can probably go to you know where in their eyes. I hope I am wrong but I worry as I am still vertical and have to watch this tripe on TV. Anyway, may God Bless You and your family (especially your daughter who I love to see her SHUT the mouth of Acosta from the Communist Cable News. Stay well.

    It is getting more difficult to listen to the news - no matter which station - and now I am getting emails from all organizations with their comments, polls, asking for money! It is no wonder people are sick of politics! We have a President who is trying his very best - against every odd being thrown at him (he has to have God on his side or he couldn't stand it) - people are in a better place than they have been for a long time, and they still whine! It must be terrible to live a life of anger and disappointment all the time. Love the man who questioned Whoppi Goldberg about why she never left America when President Trump was elected! She never answered, at least according to what I read online tonight. Never watch the show - can't stand them.

    Actually, what matters is whether BOTH parents are American citizens at the time of the baby's birth, even if born in a foreign country. That makes him a citizen of the United States. If the baby's parents are not, then he is not; he would be a foreign national, like his parents. So, Harris' parents' status does matter.

    On the "birther" comment for Harris----
    You may wish to fully read and understand our Constitution---It matters NOT where the person was born----what REALLY matters is -'were the parents U.S. Citizens at the time of birth' ?----This whole thing was never fully vetted during the obama issue-it mattered not where he was born, but whether or not his parents were US citizens(which they were NOT) --- applying these Constitutional requirements --- no, he was NOT eligible to be President, and neither is this person(if her parents were not US citizens at her birth).
    I hope you read this one and research it-- when you find the answer, please,please publish it!

    There at one time in the United States a Communist Party. Bishop Fulton Sheen got a Communist Party leader to admit that 1500 Communists infiltrated the Catholic Church as priests. How come the commies in the Democratic Party admit they are in the wrong Party and leave just like the CatholicChurch should expell those Catholic? politicians who are PRO ABORTION
