Pedestrian Politics

Nooooo! That's NOT what I meant!

Yesterday, I wrote that this was the perfect time for third candidate in the general election. Today I wake to find the Romney is trying to talk John Kasich into being that third candidate! Nooooo! Do these guys actively try to find ways to keep the country off track? Don’t get me wrong. Kasich seems […]

A Shocking Shift of Realities!

Street Politics will provide much more about this and even outline ways to make it happen. In the meantime, I’ll ask the reader to share this link and get the conversation going. Seriously, this could change the American political landscape in ways we couldn’t have imagined just last year. As of a few months ago, […]

BHO: Racist-in-Chief

Barack Obama may be more articulate (he can read and write) and less personally abrasive than Al Sharpton (tax dodger and mob rat #7) but dissimilarity ends there. He is every bit the racist hustler “Reverend” Al is. He has sullied the office of President of the United States with – among many other offenses […]

Climate Hustle: Could Have Been Done Better.

I attended a showing of Climate Hustle on 2 May 16 at the Cinemark 16 in Gulfport. It was very instructive. In terms of content, Marc Morano did a very good job. Using evidence and argument, as opposed to the vitriol and emotionalism exhibited by climate alarmists, the film stepped through the history of the […]

Myth, Lies and the Rubes That Love Them!

There are a number of myths that have grown out of this election season. Sadly, there is no shortage of people who have happily abandoned reason and skepticism to gleefully immerse themselves in the mythology. One myth I like most is the talk of Donald Trump’s “genius” in dealing with the press and labeling. In […]

From Whence Cometh the Gap?

Often, of late, we’ve heard our two socialist candidates, Bernie Sanders and Bill Clinton’s criminal wife, speak of the growing gap between the rich and middle class. They don’t even say “rich and poor” anymore. The fact is there is a growing gap in wealth between the two cohorts. But not for the reasons these […]

Another National Embarrassment to be Ignored.

I have referred to the Left’s (read: Obama)use of Orwellian non-reason many times here at Street Politics. Here are some earlier examples.(Reference 1) ((Reference 2)What leaves me gob smacked is the glee with which so many people pretend to believe the nonsense and how many more simply shrug their shoulders and permit our American Experiment […]

The Fix Is In For BJ Bill's Wife!

I am frequently overwhelmed with a desire to slap that silly, smug grin off Hillary Clinton’s face and make her look like this: This is especially true today. In a Virginia Pilot article dated 8 April we are treated once again with the realization that her presence on the campaign trail is a standing insult […]

The Donald Tells It Like It Is (at the moment)

On Obama Care: “I like the mandate. I don’t want to see people dying in the streets.” Four days later: “We will repeal and replace Obamacare.” Is that telling it like it is or is it a complete lack of understanding? On Abortion: “Women should be punished.” “Women shouldn’t be punished, doctors should be punished.” […]

Trump vs Clinton More Painful Reality

One of the most egregious of myths being touted in the political arena is the idea that Trump is leading Clinton in head to head polls. What makes it so offensive is that some of the TV talking heads like Hannity and Bolling along with Trump himself, use the myth to advance his campaign. The […]

It Is Happening As I Said It Would!

As I have warned countless times here, and in my book last summer, (example here) the press is starting to ratchet up the pressure on Trump; but only a tiny bit. The MSM, who have been carrying Trump since June, are almost 100% certain that he is going to be the nominee. So they feel […]

Well, Thank You, Mister Speaker!

Who remembers how Paul Ryan (R-WI) coyly demurred when asked if he intended to be Speaker of the House upon Boehner’s departure? Nooooo. He said. He was happy with his committee chair and he had no further ambitions in the house. But as soon as Umpa Lumpa vacated, Ryan was not only ready to run, […]

How Everyone Can Ruin the GOP

There seems to be tremendous misunderstanding of rule 40b of THE RULES OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY [1. AS ADOPTED BY THE 2012 REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION TAMPA, FLORIDA AUGUST 27, 2012 **AMENDED BY THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE ON APRIL 12, 2013, JANUARY 24, 2014, MAY 9, 2014& AUGUST 8, 2014**] among even supposedly capable reporters and […]

The Emperor Has No Vocabulary!

My earliest mentions of Trump, going back to the first few days of his campaign – you can find it all on this site – spoke to his utter incompetence as a communicator. I was, and I am still shocked at the seemingly intelligent people who say that while the Donald is not a good […]

Any Adults Out There?

We’ve watched more then once as the GOP has pissed away elections they should have won in a walk. But this time, they have really screwed the pooch. It all could have been avoided if the candidates themselves understood the basic realities pointed out in my book. Having failed to do so (Trump follows only […]

Love Letter to Trump Supporters

I am going to ask Trump fans to park their credulity for just a few minutes and read this piece with an honest and open mind. I have said many times here that no one has been harder on Trump than I am. I also said, until a month ago, that no one wanted him […]

The F**king Bridge Is Out!

Next Tuesday’s News In about 48 hours (3/15/16), if the polls are accurate, Marco Rubio will officially become the Michael Dukakis of the Republican party. By holding on, out of ego or poor judgement, for too long, he will hang the sign “loser” around his own neck. And I’m not saying that in the sense […]

Post Debate Quick Shout-Out Series: Kasich

John Kasich had his best night so far. The previous debate wasn’t too bad either. It isn’t likely to help him. Even if he wins Ohio, a huge IF, he is not going to be president. He won’t even be the nominee. He pretty much has his portion of the kindly grannies and McConnell Republicans […]

Post Debate Quick Shout-out Series: Cruz

This was not Cruz’s best debate by far. He was to evasive of direct questions, appearing as if he were going to make a related point and work back around to the answers. Instead he avoided answering the question altogether. His mannerisms have become absurd. I make jokes about his gay priest sermon-delivery style. It […]

Post Debate Quick Shout-out Series: Trump

Last debate before Florida and Ohio. Donald Trump has turned in some sorry performances in past debates. The press has been very accommodating. And, why not? They want him to win the nomination so they can REALLY tear into him starting in July. But no one can look at last Thursday night and come away […]
