Company rewards Trump states with jobs

In 2008, Barack Obama carried North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In 2012, President Trump flipped those five states on his way to a 30-state victory, the most states won in 20 years.

Now those five states are in the running to land a $10 billion in a display-making factory.

Russophobia is a loser

After nearly nine months of blaming Russia for their election debacle last November in which they outspent the least liked presidential candidate in history and lost by 10 states, Democrats now fear Russia really could cost them in 2018.

Because blaming Russia for Democratic ineptitude is making the party look foolish.

Go ahead. Ban cultural appropriation

Readers of "Trump the Establishment" may remember this paragraph:
Cultural appropriation is the successor to multicultural diversity, which holds that newcomers bring new customs that we should incorporate into our nation. Cultural appropriation admonishes us for incorporating new customs. Liberalism is not supposed to make sense.

Handel's revenge on Planned Parenthood

Republican Karen Handel not only became the first woman to win a congressional seat in Georgia last night, but she exacted revenge on Planned Parenthood -- which had relentlessly worked to get Handel fired five years ago.

11 reasons to pull CNN's credentials

Why you should care about increasing secrecy in White House and Senate
Inch by inch by inch, the Trump administration is rolling back press access, which means less information for the public.
And by press access, CNN means CNN.

Fox News and the rest of the TV outlets get called upon at press briefings. The reason CNN does not is because CNN no longer bothers with even the facade of fairness.

Keep giving Democrats bad advice, media

The media erased any doubts about a media bias this morning in its coverage of the two special elections for Congress. One race they ignored completely. In the other, they ignored the result.

The media's concentrated on the Georgia congressional race, in which big corporations and rich people from the Left Coast poured in $40 million or so on behalf of Democrat Jon Ossoff. Kellyanne Conway tweeted last night: "laughing my Ossoff."

But he was cool with funding Planned Parenthood

Kevin D. Williamson took some time out from bashing Trump supporters as Nazis and begging us to send National Review money to pen a hate-filled article: "Planned Parenthood’s Century of Brutality."

But he was cool with funding Planned Parenthood -- with my money.

Democrats hold referendum on Trump. Lose twice

States held two special elections to replace Republican congressmen who left and joined the Trump administration.

Once again Democrats walked away with moral victories -- confounding the experts who, once again, had predicted an actual victory for Democrats in one race.

The hate crime fallacy

My nomination for the week's dumbest headline is from Heat Street:
Linda Sarsour Was Wrong: Slaying of Muslim Teen in Virginia Was Road Rage, Not Hate Crime

Americans need not apply

I support countries importing skilled workers from other countries to do jobs that local people cannot do.

But let us follow the rules, please. The technology industry in America is abusing the H1B visa program that brings in foreign workers.

Carrie Fisher story is why people hate the media

Carrie Fisher's death on a flight home on December 23 was a drug overdose, according to news reports.

I really did not want to know this. She was a druggie. I knew that. Why rub it in?

But my beef with the media goes beyond that.

CNN's Acosta's butt hurts

Teacher did not call on Jim Acosta of CNN today. So he threw a Twitter Tantrum.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha (wipes tears from eyes) hahahahaha.

Special prosecutor for Mueller gains momentum

On Thursday, I posted "Appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Mueller" -- a voice in the wind.

Today, Glenn Harland Reynolds -- founder of Instapundit -- carried the idea to the pages of USA Today.

We have them on the run -- which makes them dangerous

Fear not, readers. This morning brings good news that rises above the stench of the swamp and the howls of creatures protesting the sudden dehydration of their turf.

CNN treated Saddam Hussein better it does Trump

If Mark Twain were alive today, he would say there are lies, damned lies, statistics, and worst of all: newspaper stories.

However, roughly 200 million Americans would agree with him (press credibility is at 34% according to Quinnipiac University's poll in March) so we don't really need his guidance.
