QOTD: "As a person with four decades in newspapering, now retired, I do not blame [newspaper] readers in the least.

This election cycle has shown that the news business is dominated by social justice warriors who push a narrative rather than tell stories in a fair and balanced manner.

From John Harwood asking Trump in a debate if he was running a comic book campaign, to John Harwood secretly asking questions from the Clinton campaign, to Donna Brazile giving the Clinton campaign debate questions ahead of time, no intelligent voter should trust the news media to deliver news that is fair, impartial, and balanced.

I thank you, personally, for opening our eyes once and for all to the folly of the Fourth Estate." --Don Surber

ONE CHART TO RULE THEM ALL: You'll never guess which political party leads in poverty and crime

I'd be more a lot more snarky if the human toll wasn't so devastating. The sad fact remains: progressives don't get it and never will.

Their policies are based on emotion, not facts. Feelings, not human experience.

Their policies are those of a cult, not a real political party.

Most political parties recognize when, for example, six decades of failure have left some of their primary consitituency groups in ruins.

Democrats don't.

They never learn because they're incapable of learning.

QOTD: "Democrats are searching for a cabinet nominee to defeat, andit’s telling that progressive enemy number one is Betsy DeVos. Donald Trump’s choice to run the Education Department has committed the unpardonable sin of devoting much of her fortune to helping poor kids escape failing public schools.

Progressives and their media allies have spent the last week roughing up Mrs. DeVos in preparation for her Senate confirmation hearing on Tuesday, which will feature the charms of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Liberals claim that Mrs. DeVos, wife of former Amway president Dick DeVos, is unqualified to lead the Education Department because she’s never been a teacher.

Yet the same crowd howls that bankers shouldn’t be regulating banks. Which is it? Managing a bureaucracy isn’t like running a classroom, though both require a steely resolve. Most Education secretaries have been former teachers or school superintendents—not that student test scores are better for it." --WSJ

QOTD: "A prominent black clergyman who once marched with civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis said he and other black lawmakers who delegitimize President-elect Donald Trump’s election are “on the wrong side of history”...

...Rev. William Owens, the founder and president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors, [told Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner,] “I think what they are looking at is a way to find out why Hillary Clinton was not elected"... “She was not elected because of what the Russians did; she was not elected because of what she said,” referring to her statement that the United States must change its religious beliefs...

...“We should respect the law,” he said. “Give Mr. Trump a chance.”" --Michael Dorstewitz
