The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

I think most of the base would prefer the Thursday Graham GOP to the Friday Flake GOP. There's little I loathe more than twits who stage public bouts of conscience-wrestling. Mark Steyn


Quote II

“Attention black America: The last time a mob of white liberals demanded that we believe women without due process, our ancestors were hung from trees. Under no circumstances should we allow this radical feminism to persist,” Candace Owens

Quote III

“You’re ruining Arabic culture by doing this. You’re taking these children. They want to go. I’m with you. Don’t worry, the whole world is seeing this right now, I will walk forever, I stay with you don’t worry.” Lindsey Lohan

The American television viewer has simply said "F*ck You" ABC. ABC's Fox's 'Last Man Standing' kicks butt in the ratings.

Tim Allen and Fox are waking up to some very good news this morning.

ABC not so much.

Last Man Standing returned Friday night to deliver 8 million viewers and a downright shocking 1.8 rating among adults 18-49.

That’s enough to easily rank as the top-rated show on Friday night — including beating rival ABC, which canceled Last Man Standing after six seasons last year despite the show’s pretty decent viewership. In fact, this was Fox’s most-watched comedy on any night in nearly seven years.

We are from the government and we are here to help you.

The HUB Stadium is a bar in Michigan. They offer a variety of games in addition to liquor. They were recently visited by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission. The commission had some concerns.

Drinking alcohol while throwing axes, ax-throwers wearing open-toed shoes, a lack of monitoring by bar management and axes ricocheting off targets in the direction of participants were among the concerns listed by Michigan Liquor Control Commission investigators who visited the warehouse-style bar at 2550 Innovation Drive in Auburn Hills.

Donald Trump and us "Deplorables" continue to be under fire. Keep your chin up and smile, Hillary Clinton will never be President of The United States of America.

Our country shouldn't be this way. Our country should not have come to this. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Judge Kavanaugh.

The founder of Right Wing News, John Hawkins, on Sunday started a GoFundMe account for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s family.

Like many decent people from both parties, I have been disgusted by the unsubstantiated 36 year old smears aimed at Brett Kavanaugh. We live in a country where innocent until proven guilty is supposed to mean something; yet Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation is being dragged through the mud while his family is facing non-stop death threats.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) came out swinging for Judge Kavanaugh. It appears that former president, George W. Bush is working behind the scenes for the Judge.


Of course, the Kavanaugh nomination had at least some intention to accomplish that anyway. When the opening presented itself in late June with Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, there was some limited chatter that Donald Trump might not want anyone so connected to George W. Bush as a nominee. Amy Coney Barrett was viewed by some as the real disruptor choice. Trump wisely chose Kavanaugh based on his long experience, but part of that choice was at least a tacit outreach to the Bush wing of the party.

It would be nice to see Bush actually come out and loudly proclaim his support for Kavanaugh. But, if, ifs and buts were candies and nuts we'd all have a merry Christmas.
