Non Tweets Under the Fedora 2-7-18 Email, Big League Politics as Drudge, Dem Silence, 78th Trimester abortion & the Covington Offensive

There is a par­tic­u­lar phrase from Stacy McCain piece con­cern­ing Joe Rick­ets’ emails and their reg­u­lar leak­age that deserves a word or two.

Let us stip­u­late that almost any­one has stuff in their email account which, if made pub­lic , could be embarrassing

This brings up an axiom that I have been say­ing since the early days of email. Never com­mit to an email some­thing that you would not want your worst enemy or your mother to read. That’s a rule prac­ti­cally writ­ten for a Sicil­ian and noth­ing I’ve seen in the last quar­ter cen­tury has changed my opin­ion on that matter.


Speak­ing of impor­tant sin­gle lines in a blog post Don Surber notes this con­cern­ing the site Big League Pol­i­tics:

Big League Pol­i­tics now is more influ­en­tial in Vir­ginia than all its news­pa­pers com­bined — because it is break­ing news sto­ries instead of spin­ning them.

It’s worth remind­ing every­one that two decades ago Newsweek had the story of the Mon­ica Lewinski’s blue dress with Pres­i­dent Clinton’s DNA on it, and spiked it. Matt Drudge ran with it. The Drudge Report is one of the most influ­ence web sites in the word and Matt is rich. Mean­while Newsweek sold for less than the price of an item on Wendy’s value menu.

The left never learns.


At the start of the Northam year­book busi­ness it was pointed out by some folks that Lt. Gov Fair­fax was just as much in the pocket of Planned Par­ent­hood and just as sup­port­ive of the abor­tion till birth law, which is one of the rea­sons why every mem­ber of the MSM was so quick to gush over the prospect of Fair­fax as gov­er­nor when Northan resigned.

Appar­ently not a sin­gle one of them was famil­iar with the #Metoo stuff the Wash­ing­ton Post had on him mean­ing that the post burred it really well or that they WERE famil­iar with it but were quite will­ing to keep their mouths shut as it involved a demo­c­rat, just as they kept quiet about Wein­stein, Lauer et/​all as long as it ben­e­fited Hillary.


After see­ing Patty Mur­ray (D-​OR) block a bill in the sen­ate that would pro­tect liv­ing infants after birth from being killed by Doc­tors and watch­ing Demo­c­rat women at the SOTU in uni­son sup­port the killing of chil­dren who can feel pain both before and after birth I’m con­vinced that if the KKK described lynch­ings as a “78th trimester abor­tion” Democ­rats would like up to pro­tect it as a con­sti­tu­tional right.

Speaking of important single lines in a blog post Don Surber notes this concerning the site Big League Politics:

Big League Politics now is more influential in Virginia than all its newspapers combined — because it is breaking news stories instead of spinning them.

At the start of the Northam yearbook business it was pointed out by some folks that Lt. Gov Fairfax was just as much in the pocket of Planned Parenthood and just as supportive of the abortion till birth law, which is one of the reasons why every member of the MSM was so quick to gush over the prospect of Fairfax as governor when Northan resigned.

Apparently not a single one of them was familiar with the #Metoo stuff the Washington Post had on him meaning that the post burred it really well or that they WERE familiar with it but were quite willing to keep their mouths shut as it involved a democrat, just as they kept quiet about Weinstein, Lauer et/all as long as it benefited Hillary.


After seeing Patty Murray (D-OR) block a bill in the senate that would protect living infants after birth from being killed by Doctors and watching Democrat women at the SOTU in unison support the killing of children who can feel pain both before and after birth I’m convinced that if the KKK described lynchings as a “78th trimester abortion” Democrats would like up to protect it as a constitutional right.
