When you see news reports by the mainstream media crowing about polls showing Biden running away with the General Election, don’t buy it. The MSM tried the same stunt in 2016, when Hillary was supposed to beat Trump in a cakewalk.
Predictions among conservatives that the president will beat Biden in a landslide are far too optimistic. Yes, President Trump typically under polls, but, in fact, predictions of a landslide for Trump appear to be overstated (Flyover will gladly eat it’s words, if wrong). Expect another nailbiter. This presidential contest is bound to be close. Flyover is convinced that the president wins in an honest election.
Never in memory has our country been dominated by political cohorts that seem to know less about each other, as these piece from the Guardian and Town Hall edify. Yet understanding the person sitting on the other side of the table is fundamental to making progress.
If you’re seeking to get a job, buy a house, or negotiate a union contract, it’s essential to understand what the other side wants. You can’t solve problems, come to agreements, or conclude deals that both parties endorse unless you understand what you both care about. It’s that simple.
If there’s a sentient creature who doesn’t realize how one-sided are the mainstream media, the reactions to the recent report from the State Department on Hillary’s email wrongdoings provides all the proof you need. Many outlets, such as the Washington Post, said that it “clears” her. Well, no. The report does nothing of the sort. Continue reading →
In the early morning hours after Election Day 2016, Hillary Clinton conceded gracefully, asking America to “give Trump a chance.” That didn’t last long. Months afterward, she came out swinging against the president. Last week, she called him an “illegitimate president.” On Monday, she claimed he violated his oath of office by pulling U.S. troops back in Syria.
Clinton may just be trying to increase her visibility to sell her latest book, but she may also be positioning herself to enter the 2020 Democratic presidential race if former Vice President Joe Biden falters — or should I say, continues to falter.
The actions of the Trump presidency revealed a dishonorable fact of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections,” Pelosi said.

“It strikes me that the Speaker and the other leaders are under pressure from the left wing of the party and the leftists in their caucus — who are numerous — to move ahead here,” he said.
LOS ANGELES – Ed Buck, the California Democratic megadonor, was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house after a third man reportedly suffered an overdose inside his West Hollywood home last week and survived.
— Fox News, September 18, 2019
Ed Buck, a prominent Democrat, party donor, and gay activist was arrested. He was charged with battery and running a drug house in L.A. This isn’t Buck’s first brush with the law, however. Why hasn’t the L.A. County district attorney brought down the hammer before on Buck? Continue reading →
There is an old joke about the three biggest lies: two can live as cheaply as one, check’s in the mail, and… well, the third, the punchline, isn’t appropriate for polite company. But the point resonates: there are many dominant beliefs today, as throughout history, that simply aren’t true. Continue reading →
During his dissertation, [MSNBC’s Chris] Hayes made the astounding conclusion that if the Electoral College were not a part of the U.S. Constitution, it would be unconstitutional.
— Breitbart, August 31, 2019
Let’s start with the simple proposition that Chris Hayes is a dolt or disingenuous. You’d think that a guy who’s an “expert” on politics would have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution. But Hayes is a leftist, and his analyses are really thinly veiled attempts to push his side’s agenda. Continue reading →
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that politicians will do almost anything to get elected. If that astonishes you, I would refer you to other recent news: water is wet, fish swim, and birds fly.
If hypocrisy were money, the political class could retire, en masse, move to desert islands, leave the rest of us alone, and let Buck, your yard guy, run the country. If he cares as much about us as he does about the palm trees, he’s my guy. Continue reading →
