Democrats worried about state Senate race -- in Delaware

Republicans have not controlled the state Senate in Delaware in 40 years as the Blue Hen State is that blue.

But Democrats are very worried about losing the state Senate next Saturday in a special election for a seat that will, incredibly, determine whether Republicans finally flip that state's state Senate.

Eighth Amazon review of "Trump the Establishment"

Number Eight.

Trumping illegal aliens

President Trump cleared the way for  Immigration and Customs Enforcement to arrest any illegal alien without having to wait for them to rape or kill someone, officials told congressmen on Thursday, the Orange County Register reported.

Damon's crumbling wall is actually a huge success

The headline in the Hollywood Reporter showed the media is as out of touch about show business as it is about politics:
Weekend Box Office: Matt Damon's 'The Great Wall' Crumbles With $21M U.S. Debut
However, the $150 million movie already was a huge success -- even though the trade newspaper made it sound like it bombed.

Seventh Amazon review of "Trump the Establishment"

The seventh Amazon review of "Trump the Establishment" was short, sweet and to the point.

This week in Fake News

Fake News dominated the news cycles in the last week as the news media blindly accepted as fact anything that discredited the duly elected 45th president of the United States.

It's almost as if there were a virus of bias against Donald John Trump among reporters.

Another reason to defund NPR

Marjorie Merriweather Post had Mar-a-Lago constructed in Palm Beach in the 1920s as a magnificent mansion, which she bequeathed to the U.S. government to serve as a winter retreat for the president. After all, Jack Kennedy spent many a weekend at the Kennedy mansion in Palm Beach during his sadly brief presidency. But Carter nixed that, and gave the mansion back. Donald Trump bought it and now -- lo and behold -- it is a retreat for the president.

NPR does not like that.

For the win, @TEN_GOP

More good news for West Virginia coal

The rescinding this week of an EPA rule on where coal companies can put rocks and dirt in strip mining -- falsely called "coal mining waste" by the media -- was not the only good news for West Virginia coal miners.

China today announced it will not accept any coal from North Korea from now until the end of the year (Western year, not Chinese).

Historians sense Obama failed

Only 12th best?

Gee, you would think in light of the last eight years of hosannas from the press, Barack Obama would rank with Washington and Lincoln among America's academics. But nope, he was only 12th.

How Trump trolled the press

The highlight of the President Trump's contentious press conference was a troll by the president worthy of The Lord of the Rings.

Trump threw chum at the chumps in the press -- and trumped them.

John McCain wants to join the Dixie Chicks

Nearly 14 years ago, as war began in Iraq, a trio of country singers did a concert in London. They called themselves the "Dixie Chicks" and the littlest one told the audience, “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”

Well, that pissed off country fans, but pleased the Hollywood crowd, which made their record sales crash but got them on the cover of Rolling Stone.

AP wins the Fake News of the Day award (updated and bumped)

UPDATE: AP has now backtracked on its story. Still won't admit it faked the news. (Update follows the original post.)

It was the headline too good to be true posted at 10:22 a.m.:
TRUMP WEIGHS MOBILIZING NAT GUARD FOR IMMIGRATION ROUNDUPS
An email to Matt Drudge and voila! Writer Garance Burke of the Associated Press had her Drudge link and her deluge of hits.

The factory Trump saved

General Electric shed its chemical plant in Watertown, New York, a decade ago. Hedge funds bought it and renamed it Momentive Performance Materials, which meant the glory days were over. 700 workers went on strike last November rather than take a round of cuts in benefits.

After President Trump picked as his jobs czar billionaire Stephen Schwarzman, anti-Trump forces thought they had Trump cornered. Schwarzman's hedge fund until recently owned part of Momentive.

CRAwling from the Obamanation we just suffered

After suffering decades of liberal bureaucrats re-writing laws without congressional oversight, Republicans had enough and in 1996 passed the Congressional Review Act to override the bureaucracy. This worked only once in 20 years when President Bush 43 signed off on repealing a Clinton era requirement for workplace ergonomics (then the big fad among the latte liberals).

Trump already signed off on two -- a Dodd-Frank rule and an EPA coal-mining rule, neither of which help anyone but are costly nevertheless.

Trump galvanized conservatives

Nominees slow-tracked. A travel ban hijacked. Russians hacked. Flynn whacked. Decks stacked. Some conservatives were getting nervous about whether Trump was up to the task.

So he called a press conference on Thursday, made reporters sit and wait for over a half-hour, and then laid wood into the press corps.

Conservatives cheered.

Chuck Todd whinges, Rush Limbaugh roars

We misheard Trump on September 9. We thought he said,  "We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with the winning."

He said whingeing, not winning.

Fifth Amazon review of "Trump the Establishment"

The Fifth Amazon review of "Trump the Establishment" is in. Sort of.

From Marlboro:
I'm only a couple chapters in, but I'm not going to wait until I'm done to write a review. This is better than Trump the Press. I'm one of those people who underlines, highlights and writes notes in the margins of books. Can't do it. Every damn line is a highlight.
Wow. "Better than Trump the Press"? Really? Don't ask me. I love all my children and all my books equally. but dang, if it is, well, wow.

Anyway, I hope this review encourages other reviews, because reviews really help.

Thanks, Marlboro.
