HURLEY THE HISORIAN says on this date in 1863, Republican President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation calling on the Union army to liberate all slaves in states still in rebellion as “an act of justice,” and despite fighting it tooth and nail from Day One, Dishonest DemocRATS have been taking credit for it ever since.
THAT’S WHY OUR QUOTE FOR TODAY COMMITTEE CHOSE Lincoln’s “What I did, I did after very full deliberation, and under a heavy and solemn sense of responsibility. I can only trust in God that I have made no mistake.”
THE LATEST POLLS: Whistleblower Pollster Ron Rasmussen says Americans feel better about 2017 than they did the year before, a reflection perhaps of the record-setting level of economic confidence at year’s end. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 45% of American Adults look back on 2017 in a positive way, with 24% who say it was a good year, 11% an excellent one and 10% who regard it as one of the best years ever. Only 26% believe it was a poor year. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
OUR LATE NIGHT TV JOKE WATCHER says there were no Late Night TV Jokes to report this week, which is OK, as bad as lame attempts have been lately.
MORE POLITICAL POETRY: Today, Bunky Tadwell, the Bard of Cleves, is wangling for an invitation to Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane’s Surprise Birthday Party, which is probably why he included it in his “Erotic Birthday Greetings,” available at better sticky-pages bookstores everywhere.
Birthday Greetings From a Grouch
I hear you’re having a birthday,
But I know not which one.
I do know that, however,
You’re too old to have any fun.
Tho once your hopes were high,
You’re now forced to aim them lower.
All you can do is sit on your ass,
And write that damned Whistleblower.
Note: Mrs. Kane enthusiastically assisted in the preparation of this poem.
SEEDIEST KIDS OF ALL: Although our campaign is not associated with the Failed United Way, your liberal guilt giving throughout the year still makes it all possible. This week, let’s all re-read the “Mikey Brown Story.”
LAST WEEK’S COLUMN FROM PATRONAGE TITLED “SO NOW YOU KNOW” first appeared in the Mt. Washington Press on December 23, 1981, and was personally edited by eminently renowned publisher Dennis Nichols.
LIBERAL LUNACY: In Human Events’ “365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy,” # 360 is to ask a Liberal what’s the difference between DemocRATS in Congress and a group of drunken sailors. Answer: About a trillion dollars.
GOING GALT: The phrase “Going Galt” doesn’t simply mean getting angry. “Going Galt” means recognizing that you’re being punished not for your vices but for your virtues.
WHISTLEBLOWER SENIOR BUSINESS EDITOR MERRILL FORBES says by all measures, 2017 was a great year for the stock market. And as we begin a new year, experts are cautiously optimistic that stocks will continue their hot streak in 2018. Besides that, Trump predicts this year is going to be yuge!
THE FREE GRAIN PARTY still stands as the last refuge of anyone who’s willing to help himself from the stores of others. And what Freebie Fanatics really need is a Free Stuff Calendar showing all the days during the year when you can get Free Stuff.
Free Grain Party Members include all DemocRATS, RINO Republicans, some TEA Partiers, quite a few Independents, disgruntled postal workers, senior citizens demanding free prescriptions, those who believe bigger government is the answer to all their problems, everybody who said “what Bill Clinton did was indefensible, but he shouldn’t be removed from office,” and those who think pork-barrel spending is OK as long as their district gets the money.
Unfortunately, that group probably doesn’t include all those Dumbed-Down, Self-Absorbed, Media-Influenced, Celebrity-Obsessed, Politically-Correct, Uninformed, Short-Attention-Span, Free-Stuff Grabbing, Low-Information Obama Supporters Who Put The Positively Worst President in History In The White House—Twice, and Failed Trying To Give Obama a Third Term By Voting For Hillary, and get all of their information from our Obama Supporters in the Press, like the ones on Channel 5, 9, 12, and 19.
FINALLY AT SATURDAY’S MEETING OF CONSERVATIVE AGENDA, Political Insiders were definitely not asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane about his Surprise Birthday Party next Sunday, because he’s not supposed to know about.
The reason it wasn’t a surprise last year was when the Whistleblower interns put up all those banners and decorations a week early. And the large sign in the front yard was a dead giveaway, too.
Remember: We never print all the bad stuff we know and certain people ought to be damn glad we don’t, especially all those folks who attended Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane’s Surprise Birthday Party at Kane’s McMansion last year. There weren’t quite as many freeloaders as those who paid big bucks to showed up at Trump’s New Year’s Eve Party in Mar-a-Lago Sunday night, but for Cincinnati, it was quite a crowd.
