As part of the new agreement between President Trump and Mexico, Mexican federal troops stopped the season’s first migrant “caravan” of about 2,000 people that was planning to cross Mexico to enter the US illegally.

Best comment on this was from Prof. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit, who pointed out that Trump stopped the migrant caravan from entering the US and Mexico paid for it.

Hey, what gives?  I was assured by all the smartest people in politics and media that that was a ridiculous notion, and it was never going to happen! 




I usually don’t cover political statements from Hollywood celebrities unless there’s something particularly newsworthy about them (you’ll notice that I generously ignored the announcement that Rosie O’Donnell, Tom Arnold and a few others had formed a “celebrity task force” in someone’s treehouse to take down the President - sounds like the plot to a low-budget sequel to "Mystery Men.")  But I think this definitely deserves a little attention.

Ronan Farrow, whose reporting on powerful sexual abusers like Hollywood mogul and major Democratic fundraiser Harvey Weinstein helped launch the “MeToo” movement, revealed that when he was working on that story for NBC in 2017, he was also trying to convince Hillary Clinton to give him an interview on foreign policy. He got a call back from Hillary’s publicist, telling him that the Weinstein story they’d heard he was working on was “a concern for us.”  Shortly afterward, Weinstein emailed the then-president of NBC News, proposing to produce a docuseries about Hillary for NBC. 

(The publicist denied that it happened that way, as you can see at the link, for what it’s worth.)

This alleged attempt by the Hillary camp to protect their patron Weinstein was the last straw for actress Rose McGowan, a radically pro-abortion liberal, but also someone who had long claimed to have suffered severe personal and career damage from being raped by Weinstein. She was one of the early, leading voices of MeToo. 

Ms McGowan tweeted, “I knew that Hillary Clinton’s people, were protecting the Monster.  I can’t believe I used to support her. I guess predators are her style”…“Hillary Clinton, did you have any concern for your husband’s victims? And what about HW victims? No? Didn’t think so.”

I’m glad to hear that the blinders are finally coming off, at least for some of Hillary’s celebrity feminist supporters who believed her “champion of women” baloney. Maybe they’re waking up to the fact that you don’t have to be a member of a “vast rightwing conspiracy” to have smelled a rat that’s been stinking up the joint for over a quarter of a century. Or to see the disconnect between “Believe all women” and the way Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and other Bill Clinton accusers were either ignored or cruelly mocked (add Monica Lewinsky into that latter category) for years, both by Hillary and her supportive media clique. 

When many of us read, “I guess predators are her style,” we couldn’t help thinking, “You’re just now noticing?” But I’m grateful that someone in Hollywood finally is.  




This is an interesting analysis from Monica Showalter at American Thinker, comparing Rep. Adam Schiff’s public bravado to his increasingly wobbly behavior, looking for signs that he realizes he’s walked out over a shark tank on a very long, very fragile plank that is crumbling beneath his feet with every new step.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve watched Schiff blatantly lie about having evidence of Americans colluding with Russia (I’m so old, I remember when Hollywood liberals used to make movies about how terrible that was, not elect Congressmen who actually did it.)  We’ve seen him read defamatory fake quotes from the President into the Congressional Record.  And now, we’re watching him trying to overturn the results of a Presidential election by holding secret meetings with opponents locked out, in which he’s talking to unnamed second- and third-hand “witnesses” whose anonymous hearsay he wants to use to impeach the President without ever allowing him to cross-examine or even face his accusers.

I do have to hand it to Schiff: he’s absolutely convinced me that there is a national official in power who richly deserves to be thrown out of office, and possibly ridden out of DC on a rail. Except it’s not Donald Trump. 


LeBron James is the latest big name in the NBA to join the “kowtow to communist China” movement, and it’s not going over well with fans on the Internet.  As noted at the link, wealthy pro athletes have no problem denouncing oppression in America, whether real or imagined, but they clam up fast when the subject of the very real oppression by Beijing comes up.

    Cannot bring myself to waste time on the debates. Instead ck FOX for commentary. 2 things strike me: Biden's strong denials that he and Hunter discussed business on an Airforce 2 flight to China, is about as believable as Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton discussing grandchildren on the tarmac in AZ. Biden is LYING!! Also, a point for POTUS to use against Warren, today a mother was sentenced to jail for fraudulently claiming her child was a minority to benefit him in college entrance chances, just as Eliz. Warren did. JAIL!
    There is the double standard again.

    Watched the DEM Debate last night. easy to see WHAT the MSM wants us to "see, feel, do and vote". center stage Joe and Warren. Way off on the fringe Gabbard and Steyer, so I guess we are to ignore them? silly. didn't gain anything from this debate at all however. just re hashing samo samo. Poor Trump. this latest (wash, Rinse and Repeat) slurry of accusations was Sooooo predictable it was just silly. and, as is the usual, the MSM either glosses over or spins sideways the trump victories. He is keeping another promise, (to bring us out of prolonged engagements). And as you may know the ONLY country to ever have any influence in Afghanistan is the Turks. If Trump is going to get us out of AF we are going to NEED the Turks. Additionally Putin was working hard at overextending the U.S. What Trump did was to head it off at the pass. Now Putin has the burden on him Aaaannnnd Trump is bringing us out. Don't get me wrong, I'm an old school WW II policy guy. we sat in Germany, that worked, We sat in Japan, that worked. Sat in Korea, mostly worked. S. Korea is strong as heck. So by default, I think sit and dig in. but THAT is $$$$ and NOT what Trump campaigned on. He mad a promise, found a way to deliver and started.

    The old adage "it's all about the money" works nearly every time when NBA players are involved. Just sayin'.

    I cannot believe they are playing basketball in China. They are being paid by Communists. It is just as bad as Hunter Biden working in Communist China. I feel it is a betrayal to our country.

    I have to admit I watched a bit of the Clown Show my wife had it on the TV. I am a weak fellow I couldn't take the looney tunes presented. I feel our country requires constitutional principle and I didn't see any of it from these imposters. Immigration reform not addressed concern China wants and is trying to replace the US as World Leader not addressed Healthcare a dangerous attempt, how to provide Insurance to Americans dismal attempt. I have commented in the past that these candidates are bringing all these unworkable ideas as just a show of lunatic ideas so a candidate can come in with possible ideas that might workout many people in America wants a country that leads in todays world. Last nite collection of misfits would bring the US to a level that our Urban High Schools have, very poor. Mike Bloomberg might be a candidate unlimited funds and has experience. 1 more thing the military decision to bring home our troops is receiving negative backlash in the short term it looks hard to understand, the long term may be the right decision; after all the emotion calms down these people in Syria Turkey Iran and Iraq and the middle East will fight for generations they all ready have, peace to them is unattainable our civil war ended let them figure it out, don't argue with crazy people when they bring the fight to the United States only then should we shut them down. If the area there is so important buy or have them become a state then we would have an interest otherwise let them be.

    At last night's debate Joe Biden said he was working for the [Obama] administration to root out corruption in the Ukraine, when defending himself and his son regarding the Ukraine. Just what President Trump was doing in his phone call with the Ukraine president. It was Trump's second thought that Biden had bragged he used US taxpayer money to bribe Ukraine authorities to have a prosecutor fired and that also should be looked into. Bribery is a crime, it is corruption in the Ukraine that should be looked into. Okay for democrat VP Biden and the Obama administration to do it, but the democrats want to impeach Trump for doing it. Just one more thing that Schiff's impeachment inquiry is a democratic hoax to overthrow the President of the United States and remove the American people from an election process. Impeachment should be stopped NOW. There is enough evidence impeachment is a democratic hoax to overthrow a President. Also, there is enough evidence, going back to the Mueller investigation, to charge Schiff with treason. The American people should be damn angry with the cleaver, corrupt Schiff for subjecting us and the country to this fake, treasonous impeachment.

    Cowards who kowtow to China are the same cowards who kowtow to Islam. They can only be brave in the good old US of A where we are the land of the free and the home of the brave! It will be interesting to see how they respond when these cultures actually start to affect their livelihood and their heads start to roll under this type of oppression. We could reach that point. Perhaps we should consider them traitors and exile them to China or Saudi Arabia. However, we are Christians! We must love our enemies.
